One of the things that I enjoy most about this industry is how quickly it moves. The market continually evolves to demand more flexible and more powerful solutions. Workloads that need protection grow in size, type and location. Today, it’s the norm for hybrid- and multi-cloud deployments to protect physical, virtual, Kubernetes, IaaS, PaaS and SaaS data.
Veeam is unapologetically a data protection and ransomware recovery vendor. We are known industry-wide for pioneering and patenting Instant Recovery almost a decade ago. Our pace of innovation has not slowed; we continue to focus on the speed, granularity and ease of bringing important applications and files back online quickly. Veeam has delivered almost 30 releases across every one of our solutions in the Veeam Data Platform, and in doing so, we’ve ensured that our 450,000+ customers have what they need to be fully protected.
When we are recognized by a respected industry analyst firm, we believe it is a testament to the loyal and happy customers who rely on us to keep their business running. I am proud that Veeam has been named a Leader in the 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions1 for the seventh consecutive time and positioned as highest in Ability to Execute for the fourth year in a row.
Today, Veeam celebrates this acknowledgement. We also recognize the increased responsibility to continue innovating and stay ahead of a growing cyber-threat landscape. This is why Veeam also focuses on data security. Backup has truly transformed from protecting against occasional equipment failures, configuration issues and accidental deletions (all of which still happen) to additionally being a core component of a robust cyber resiliency practice. From native, built-in immutability, to immutable options across an enormous ecosystem of partners, Veeam makes it easy for customers to follow the 3-2-1-1-0 Rule, so that double- and triple-play immutability is available to every size of customer. Latent malware and anomaly detection, cleansing data during restore to avoid re-infection and a ransomware warranty are just a few of the many things that Veeam offers to keep data safe from bad actors.
If we have learned anything in the last few years, it’s the importance of being flexible enough to keep pace with the fast changes in how we conduct business, how and where our data resides, and what cloud or infrastructure we run on. Today, the market tells us that data must be portable and made easier to move across data centers; it must be mobile across a variety of clouds, with bi-directional movement, so that where data resides today in no way limits where it can be moved from or recovered to tomorrow. At Veeam, we call this Data Freedom — for any cloud, any infrastructure, and any mixture of the two, so that you have the flexibility and the power to manage a hybrid- and multi-cloud environments which are capable of responding to any demand, even those we may not foresee today.
It is again my privilege to congratulate our partners and every Veeam employee, as I believe they have had a role in this year’s recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant. I especially want to thank our customers for their continued support. At VeeamON 2023, we announced and demonstrated just a few of the many new capabilities that are soon to come.
