How Veritas aims to enhance the protection of enterprise data

11 Mar 2019

Veritas Technologies announced that it has acquired APTARE a privately-held software company based in Campbell, California. 

APTARE is a leader in analytic solutions for hybrid cloud environments and the industry's leading open and extensible IT analytics platform. It supports hybrid cloud storage and backup systems, as well as technologies such as OpenStack, software-defined storage and flash infrastructures.

The protection and management of business data in most organisations are split across many different tools and technologies. As organisations move data and workloads to the cloud, they face major challenges locating their data, migrating it simply and cost-effectively, and protecting it in all environments. With new data privacy laws coming into effect, organisations globally must also have the ability to see, access, protect and manage their data—no matter where it lives.

APTARE’s technology will supposedly allow Veritas to offer customers an enhanced analytics platform that provides deep insights and reporting across their different data protection, virtual infrastructure and storage environments. It will enable customers to:

  • Gain visibility into their complete infrastructure—on-premises and in any cloud—to make more informed decisions.  
  • Have a common reporting platform from tape to disk to the cloud, which is essential in a multi-cloud environment.  
  • Better anticipate needs and predict outcomes, such as optimising their infrastructure, reducing costs, and meeting compliance and SLA requirements.

The addition of APTARE’s IT Analytics solutions to Veritas’ product portfolio also strengthens the company’s product integrations with key cloud and technology providers including VMware, AWS, Microsoft Azure, OpenStack and ServiceNow.  

Veritas CEO Greg Hughes says, “With APTARE’s IT Analytics, Veritas customers will now benefit from enhanced reporting and analytics across NetBackup and other third-party applications. 

“We’re making it simpler for customers to access critical information about their infrastructure and providing them with a one-stop shop for all reporting requirements, on-premise, in any cloud and across their technology ecosystem.”

APTARE CEO Richard Clark says, “APTARE’s vendor-agnostic approach to data analytics is pivotal to the enterprise management framework for managing the modern enterprise IT structure. 

“It drives cost savings, allows a healthy storage environment and comprehensive reporting with deep analytics, and presents IT professionals with every metric needed to ensure their data is protected and recoverable.”

Veritas is not disclosing financial terms of the acquisition.
