Veritas Backup Exec is Recognized for Continuous Leadership and Quality

Veritas Perspectives July 05, 2023

At Veritas, we recognize that there are real-world impacts to be made, connecting our employees to a deeper, more meaningful purpose through the work they do, driven by the goals they set. By leading and guiding our employees with these values, we fearlessly provide retailers, hospitals, armed forces, universities, energy companies, and government departments with security and backup in this ever-changing world.

With rapid development in today’s times, we have our loyal customers to thank for their commitment to our brand and the trust within us to be a part of their success. Backup Exec is a Veritas product that allows businesses to seamlessly function by providing software that backs up a company's data utilizing cloud technology. When a ransomware attack occurs to a business, Backup Exec has the company’s data stored in a secure cloud, so they can safely retrieve their data and resume running their business. This aids companies in avoiding being down for hours or days on end whilst trying to retrieve their data. Our Backup Exec product has excelled in our industry to protect and recover new and aged businesses alike in their endeavors. This year, we have earned eight leadership badges per G2’s standards, excelling in many areas across the board. In addition, our hard work has moved us up in rankings across several categories.  

Our products have earned considerable recognition for being a leader in terms of high customer satisfaction and market presence. More specifically, our focus on data server backup has considerably impacted our success. Broken down in terms of small business, mid-market, and enterprise, this award was solely earned based on high levels and reputable reports of customer satisfaction. 

Our Europe leader badge was earned through the regional reports as well, representing an additional reach for the company. 

We are honored to share that we have made considerable progress in 31 categories across the board over the last year. Amidst the switch from perpetual-based licensing to subscription-based licensing, this is something we pride ourselves on, indicating that through our changes, we are consistently prioritizing our customers and their needs. These advancements in rankings would not have been made possible without the consistent trust and support from our customer base. To our customers, we extend great appreciation.  

We previously placed 7th in the category of Small Business Grid Report for Server Backup. Now we rank 4th in the leaderboard, excelling in our industry. In addition, in terms of Enterprise Grid Report for Server Backup, we jumped two places, from 4th to 2nd. In every other category, we excelled by rising in the rankings by one place, earning the second spot in Enterprise Grid® Report for Server Backup and Mid-Market Grid® Report for Server Backup
