Johannesburg, South Africa – 15 March 2023: Veeam® Software, the leader Modern Data Protection, has announced the winners of the Veeam ProPartner Awards for 2022 in South Africa, Johannesburg. The awards are held annually to reward the outstanding success and the commitment of Veeam ProPartner Value-Added Resellers (VAR) and Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners. As a partner-centric organization, Veeam recognizes partners that leveraged customer support and Veeam expertise to deliver Modern Data Protection in increasingly complex IT environments so that the most diverse workload types, data, and applications are protected.
Lisa Strydom, Senior Manager: Channel and Alliances for Africa at Veeam Africa, explained: “2022 added to the challenges businesses were already facing as they emerged from the global pandemic. Chief among them was the ever-present and rising incidence of ransomware attacks, that left only 14% of Middle East & Africa (MEA) organisations unaffected. With secure, immutable backups the last line of defence against ransomware, protecting enterprise IT across all ecosystems is essential to keep businesses running.”
“Satisfying the myriad demands modern business processes and exposures place upon our customers needs a multi-faceted network of ProPartners with a rich variety of competencies, and Veeam has the best in the business. Their skills, underpinned by the Veeam Data Platform - a single solution to protect Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes applications - gives customers the resilience, availability and business outcomes they need. I am proud of our fantastic local ProPartner network, without whom we would not enjoy the success that we do. As a 100% channel-focused organization, our Africa ProPartner Award winners have delivered exceptional results through close collaboration in 2022. It is my pleasure to thank them for their loyalty, excellence and trust in Veeam.”
