Fri, 1st Dec 2023

Veritas Technologies, an player secure multi-cloud data resiliency, has confirmed its status as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cyber-Recovery 2023 Vendor Assessment.

Trusted by over 80,000 customers, including 91% of the Fortune 100, Veritas is recognised for its ability to cover detection, prevention, and recovery for both backup environments and some capacities on primary storage.

Recognising its extensive and uniquely tailored roadmap of new features and compliance with numerous governmental standards, IDC commended Veritas for its wide applicability to a broad host of organisations, from SMBs to larger-scale groups across most regions. IDC commented that Veritas enables customers to utilise its offerings in a manner that best aligns with their individual organisational preferences.

The IDC MarketScape employs a robust methodology that uses quantitative and qualitative data to evaluate vendor offerings, their capabilities, and their strategies. Phil Goodwin, Research Vice President of Infrastructure Software Platforms at IDC, said: "Cyber-attacks are a top concern of nearly every organisation in every geography."

"Organisational leaders are focused on cyber preparedness and response, the foundation of which is the ability to recover with certainty, speed, and accuracy."

The difference in solutions' capabilities and architecture may confuse and challenge IT buyers in making the right purchase decision. "This groundbreaking IDC MarketScape helps them gain clarity on the most effective solution for their unique situations," added Goodwin.

The company recently introduced Veritas 360 Defense, the industry's first extensible architecture to unify data security, data protection, and data governance capabilities. This innovation seeks to mitigate threats and speed recovery with support from a wide ecosystem of leading security vendors.

The Veritas 360 Defense platform also showcased multiple new product innovations and integrations, like updates to Veritas Alta, the industry's highly secure, comprehensive cloud data management platform.

Veritas stands out due to its deep risk identification and scoring systems, alongside unique internal testing against actual malware and ransomware infections in the Veritas REDLab. Additionally, government and regulated organisations for which standards certifications are paramount will find Veritas particularly appealing.

Matt Waxman, the Senior Vice President and General Manager of Data Protection at Veritas, emphasised the increasing challenge organisations face in dealing with malware threats, particularly ransomware, due to the complexity of today's multi-cloud environments. He highlighted the difficulty of mitigating and recovering from such threats using the various tools organisations currently rely on.

Waxman pointed out that Veritas' recognition in the 2023 IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Cyber Recovery supports their strategy of integrating data security, data protection, and data governance within the security ecosystem. This unified approach aims to empower organisations to thrive despite the constantly evolving threat landscape.

Matt Waxman commented, "Mitigating and recovering from malware threats, such as ransomware, with the disparate tools many organisations rely on, is becoming virtually impossible in today's complex multi-cloud environments."

"Our position in the 2023 IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Cyber Recovery validates our strategy to unify data security, data protection, and data governance within the security ecosystem so that organisations can continue to thrive despite the ever-evolving threat landscape."
