NEW YORK, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Knowledge Vault announced today that leading European IT security analyst firm, KuppingerCole, has released an Executive View report detailing the features, strengths and challenges of its cloud-based compliance platform. Specifically, the report points out Knowledge Vault's key features, its extensibility and significant footprint within the Microsoft ecosystem.
"Knowledge Vault's value proposition is very compelling," explained Alexei Balaganski, the author of the report. "Protecting core cloud-based messaging and identity platforms is critical for organizations of all sizes. Those organizations can realize nearly instant time-to-value by leveraging a powerful, cost effective and intuitive SaaS platform like Knowledge Vault."
As a purely cloud-based platform, not only is it easy to implement and scale-up, but its intuitive UI makes all of its features and capabilities easily accessible to non programmers—a key selling point. Implementation for all supported services is accomplished through connectors, each of which can be licensed separately. Connectors only require a quick initial setup using appropriate credentials; the rest is completely transparent to the users. Currently, Knowledge Vault provides connectors for Microsoft Office 365 (Exchange Online, SharPoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Skype for Business), Microsoft Azure Active Directory, on-premises Microsoft Exchange, and Dropbox for Business.
In recognition of Knowledge Vault's ease of use and intuitive UI, KuppingerCole made the following recommendation:
"Providing a unified insight through a single cloud service combined with a high degree of delegated automation of administrative tasks through wizard-like graphical management actions, Knowledge Vault can simplify management and increase safety of corporate data, achieve compliance and improve business operations. While the solution continues to expand its connector library, it can certainly be recommended for any organization using Microsoft Office 365 or Azure AD who are looking for a single solution for monitoring, managing and automating multiple cloud services."

Christian Ehrenthal, CEO and co-founder, Knowledge Vault, commented: "We're extremely pleased that KuppingerCole thinks so highly of our solution. Their recommendation, combined with recently winning significant new clients like Tata Steel, validates our position as the leading cloud-based compliance and management platform for the Microsoft cloud ecosystem. We look forward to building on this success in the near future with important enhancements and additional connectors."
Knowledge Vault will team up with its European partner, n3k, and KuppingerCole to produce a webinar about the Knowledge Vault platform. The webinar is scheduled for March 8th at 3PM CET/ 9AM EDT. For more information and to register, visit http://www.knowledge-vault.com/webinars.html.
