– A Leader for Second Year in a Row; Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute –

OCEANPORT, NJ—November 24, 2014—CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) - today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant of the “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving[1]” for the second consecutive year.

According to Gartner, “the Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Information Archiving profiles vendors that offer, at a minimum, integrated email and some other content archiving utilized predominantly for information governance and eDiscovery, with storage capacity management as a secondary benefit. Leaders have the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They have a proven track record of financial performance and established market presence.”

“It gives us great pride that CommVault has been recognized as a Leader by Gartner for two years running and we feel it reinforces our commitment to helping customers transform their business data into business value,” said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, CommVault. “We believe this is continued validation that our comprehensive, singular approach to data and information management is helping customers solve their biggest challenges. CommVault software goes beyond backup to reduce risk and costs to help companies seek new ways to derive value from their information.”

Gartner states that “by 2019, 75 percent of organizations will treat archived data as an active and ‘nearline’ data source, and not simply as a separate repository to be viewed or searched periodically, up from less than 10 percent today.” The firm notes that Enterprise Information Archiving (EIA) “is emerging as a commonly used technology underpinning for higher-level use cases supporting compliance, information governance, eDiscovery and historical preservation of data. Originating as a technology solution targeted specifically at email applications, the EIA market has expanded to include broad support for multiple content types.”

CommVault’s technology provides users with instant information access across all data – from endpoint devices to the data center and in the cloud – CommVault software empowers organizations and their employees with self-service access, compliance search and analytics tools for improved productivity. With solutions from CommVault, customers can slash costs by as much as half, reduce administrative overhead by up to 80 percent, and lower aggregate support costs by up to 35 percent.
