Date: 04/07/2016

New York, NY, April 7, 2016 Intralinks® Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: IL), a secure global sharing and collaboration company for high value content, today announced that Gartner has ranked the company the number one vendor by market share in the collaboration and social software suites market* for the tenth consecutive year. Intralinks leads the category with 17.4 percent market share, over the closest competitors, based on worldwide revenues in 2015.

“Competitive pressures are driving companies to digital transformation strategies requiring the ability to work beyond traditional organizational boundaries both inside and externally with customers and partners. Intralinks allows businesses to securely control the flow of high value content with complex security and data privacy concerns, while also being easy-to-use and manage,” said Ron Hovsepian, CEO at Intralinks. “We believe being recognized by Gartner as the market share leader in enterprise collaboration for the tenth consecutive year is a great affirmation of Intralinks and our strategy.”

 “SaaS and cloud-based services are the primary delivery models for collaboration and social software technologies. Knowledge sharing, collective intelligence, employee engagement and community building are key drivers of growing and enhancing collaboration software usage. More organizations are moving from usage among small groups and project teams to a more sophisticated usage that emphasizes collaboration in the context of work activities and business outcomes.”**
