This report focuses on demand drivers for content archiving and related technologies in the North American market. The research conducted for this report, as well as the report itself, are focused on the needs of vendors, investors and others who are interested in participating in the messaging archiving market in some way, whether as providers of the archiving systems, forensics services or other offerings. The information presented is designed to help these vendors and interested parties make informed decisions about the future opportunities available in this market.
