05 Oct 17

Multi-cloud data management provider Veritas Technologies has been named a leader in the September 2017 report, The Forrester Wave: Data Resiliency Solutions, Q3 2017.

The report analysed data resiliency solutions that “go beyond data protection and recovery.”

Specifically, the report evaluated seven vendors based on 39 criteria, including strategy, market presence and current offering.
 
Veritas received the highest scores of any vendor in the strategy category and the scalability criteria.

Additionally, Veritas received the highest scores possible in both the technology partners and resellers criteria.

Veritas also received among the highest scores in the manageability criteria as well as the setup and implementation criteria.
 
“When it comes to data management, backup and recovery is just the beginning,” says Mike Palmer, Veritas executive vice president and chief product officer.

“Organisations require visibility into their data across complex multi-cloud environments, protection against catastrophic outages or ransomware attacks and the ability to meet stringent compliance regulations.

“Today, customers are solving these challenges through our 360 data management platform. We are delighted to be cited as a leader in this report.”
 
According to the report, Veritas has a well-rounded strategy for the 360 data management platform to serve enterprise data resiliency requirements.

The report also states that “Veritas Information Map helps firms create a single global view of important metrics like data centre locations, storage capacity, protected data types, existing capacity, utilisation levels, data ownership, data age, and cost to help customers that want to optimise their tech spending.”
 
Veritas has just introduced a wave of new innovations to the Veritas 360 data management portfolio that takes data protection, visibility, storage and choice to the next level.

Specific advancements announced at the Veritas Vision conference include:
