DALLAS – Nov. 13th, 2018M-Files Corporation, the intelligent information management company, today announced that the company received the top scores in five key categories in the 2018 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Content Services Platforms report. The five key categories include content management, content security, search, metadata and classification and delivery model.

The Critical Capabilities report accompanies the magic quadrant and analyzes the capabilities of 18 vendors in the market by ranking a core set of critical capabilities.
