Big Week for CTERA: Launches 6.0 and is Featured in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for CCP

Two days ago, we announced our new major release, CTERA 6.0, featuring infinite capacity with smart edge caching, and today we are proud to share our inclusion in the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms (formerly the EFSS).

Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration Platforms

Gartner is forecasting the CCP market to grow from $3 Billion in 2016 to $9.2 Billion by 2021.  During that time, they expect 80% of enterprise organizations will have at least one Content Collaboration Platform deployed. This is consistent with our observation which is that almost every enterprise we meet with is in the process of modernizing their file storage and collaboration platforms.

Another observation that jumps out from the report is that the market consists of a diverse range of vendors, in many cases with different areas of expertise. Most of the large vendors such as Box, Dropbox, Google and Microsoft focus on pure public SaaS, while others are narrowly focused on specific use-cases, such as project management and large file transfer.

CTERA is something of a unique member of this elite group of vendors. On the one hand, we meet the high criteria for inclusion in this report, and on the other hand these capabilities are only a part of our overall approach of delivering a unified and secure file services platform.  In fact, CTERA is the only vendor to be featured in both the Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for Content Collaboration and Gartner’s Market Guide for Cloud Storage Gateways as well as the only vendor to provide 100% data residency control, an increasingly critical requirement for enterprise IT organizations.

Who better to summarize these points than Gartner?

 “CTERA is a good fit for organizations with highly distributed users and offices, and priorities on data privacy or data sovereignty. These organizations are looking to modernize their file storage infrastructure by moving to the cloud while maintaining security and data protection, but also pursuing greater degrees of collaboration.

As with any market analysis, the key question is what weight is given to different criteria vectors. For CTERA the focus has always been on high security and infrastructure diversity. Following is the CTERA focus map:
