Veritas Named “Champion” in Canalys APAC Channel Leadership Matrix

SYDNEY, Australia – January 18, 2022  – Veritas Technologies, the global leader in enterprise data protection, today announced that it has been named a “Champion” in the Canalys APAC Channel Leadership Matrix.

The Canalys APAC Channel Leadership Matrix is based on reseller feedback to the Canalys Vendor Benchmark, an online tool that compiles partner ratings of technology vendors’ capabilities across 12 areas of channel management. This is combined with a detailed assessment of recent channel activities and future prospects by Canalys analysts to derive the vendor’s ultimate position.

In declaring Veritas a “Champion”, the Canalys report noted enhancements to the Veritas Partner Force programme, which introduced more rewards for partners and deeper collaboration on key areas such as ransomware resiliency. Canalys also highlighted the strength of Veritas’ partner community support through its Platinum Vantage initiative.

Sheena Wee, APAC Channels Analyst, at Canalys, said: “Achieving Champion status is an impressive achievement, requiring not only the highest level of excellence in channel management, but also year-on-year improvement. Veritas demonstrated ongoing commitment to its channel partners throughout the year, with new initiatives and consistent support and, as a result, saw its Vendor Benchmark scores continue to rise. Ultimately, Veritas had strongest score growth of any of the IT companies that we tracked year-on-year.”

Just eight technology companies met the “Champion” criteria in the Canalys report, reflecting the high standards required to achieve eligibility.

Andrew Cheng, Managing Director of AsiaPac Technology Pte Ltd, and a Veritas Platinum Vantage member, said: “A successful relationship with a vendor partner has to be built on three things: a great product to sell, a great channel programme to leverage, and a great team to work with. Over the past 12 months, we’ve seen Veritas deliver significant investment and features for its products, as well as launching an enhanced channel programme to ensure reliable revenue streams as we navigate the pandemic. On top of this, we’ve always enjoyed deep teamworking with Veritas, which they’ve worked hard to maintain, and even improve, despite the challenges of COVID. This combination makes us primed for success, so we’re proud to see Veritas named a “Champion” in the Canalys APAC Channel Leadership Matrix.”

Gary Sievers, Vice President of Channel Sales, APJ, for Veritas, said: “At Veritas, we’ve poured our heart and soul into our channel programme. Innovation in the Veritas Partner Force Programme, and our Platinum Vantage initiative, give us the framework for success, but it’s the energy, dedication and teamwork that the Veritas team shares with our partners that really delivers results. “Champion” status means a great deal to us because, not only is it an endorsement of our strategy by the experts at Canalys, but it also reflects the amazingly positive feedback from our partners.”
