The growth of enterprise information archiving solutions is attributed to the rising generation of data across organizations, assigned to the widespread geographical presence and customer base.

Data comes in various formats, from structured, numeric data in traditional databases to unstructured text documents, videos, audio, emails, stock ticker data, and financial transactions. Enterprise information archive stores all kind of data in archive storage and make it accessible when required. Organizations are also positioning themselves to extract more value, intelligence, and utility from the data within their archive.

Moreover, the increasing usage of the cloud has further supported data generation across end-user verticals. Information archiving solutions leverage public and private cloud platforms in order to offer organizations the much-needed agility and scalability, with lower costs. Therefore, the players in the market are increasingly offering cloud-based solutions to manage data. For instance, the Barracuda Essentials cloud-based service makes e-mail safe for businesses, with advanced threat protection, tamper-proof archiving, and data protection.
Furthermore, several regulatory standards have been designed and developed by governments for company compliance. Regulations often mandate that electronic data such as email and social media needs to be stored in a secure, tamper-proof format. High-quality archiving solutions have advanced search and legal hold features that allow secure eDiscovery and compliance with various laws and regulations in regulated industries and beyond. They ensure easy policy management and allow storage in mandated WORM formats.

According to Seagate Technology PLC, the volume of data is expected to reach 149 zettabytes by 2024 from 26 zettabytes in 2017. Moreover, enterprises across the globe are adopting technical solutions as part of their digitalization process. Hence augmenting the market growth.
