Veritas NetBackup 7.7 Earns Prestigious Industry Recognition

Mountain View, CA – June 21, 2016 - Today Veritas Technologies, the global leader in information management, announced its market leading backup solution NetBackup 7.7 prevailed over all of the competing products that were nominated, and is named the Best Storage and Backup Solutions of 2016 by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) CODiE Awards. The NetBackup platform is trusted by enterprises worldwide to protect cloud, virtual and physical workloads, no matter where the data resides.

A SIIA CODiE Award, the premier awards for the software and information industries, is a prestigious honor as each award winner was reviewed by a field of industry experts, whose evaluations determined the finalists. SIIA members then reviewed the finalists and their votes were combined with the scores from the industry experts to select this year’s CODiE Awards winners.

"We are honored that the CODiE Awards have recognized NetBackup 7.7," said Scott Anderson, Senior Vice President of Information Protection Solutions at Veritas Technologies. "NetBackup is the forward thinking backup solution that provides customers superior levels of scalability, performance and visibility to overcome the complexities of the modern data center and the increasing risks associated with the exponential growth of data.”

Named by Gartner as a Magic Quadrant leader and the market-share leader in enterprise backup and recovery software, NetBackup when combined with NetBackup Appliance is one of the most scalable solutions, allowing enterprises to efficiently protect petabytes of data without disrupting the business and quickly find and recover data at a moment’s notice. In a recent benchmark report3, NetBackup was found to be up to 3 times faster than its nearest competitors.

Designed for the hybrid cloud, NetBackup cloud connectors enable enterprise IT organizations to confidently accelerate their move to the cloud with a single-click configuration. With a broad set of support for cloud environments, enterprises have the flexibility to pick and choose the cloud storage service they need for backup.
