NEW Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

#1 Backup and recovery for Microsoft Windows

Due to various factors, including complex hardware configurations and regulatory compliance requirements, some physical servers and workstations cannot be virtualized. And everyday occurrences such as lapses in connectivity, hardware failures, file corruption — even ransomware or theft — can leave an organization’s data at risk.

NEW Veeam® Agent for Microsoft Windows — a key component of the 
Veeam Availability Platform — solves these issues by closing the gap that some enterprises face with large, heterogeneous or multi-cloud environments and further enables workload mobility by delivering Availability for Windows-based workstations, physical servers and cloud instances.

Back up Windows-based servers and workstations with ease.

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is built on the extremely successful Veeam Endpoint Backup™ FREE and includes three editions — Workstation, Physical Server and Cloud Instance — with additional features designed to ensure the Availability of your Windows workloads by providing backup and recovery for physical and cloud-based workloads, as well as endpoint devices that belong to remote users.

With Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, you get:

  • Enterprise-level backup and recovery: Get complete protection for both workstations and Windows-based servers — even those running in the cloud — including full application awareness
  • Physical backups off site: Back up Windows-based workloads off site to a cloud service provider through Veeam Cloud Connect and more
  • Protection of roaming endpoints: Meet recovery point objectives (RPOs) for laptops and tablets outside the corporate network
  • And much more!

Part of the Veeam Availability Platform

Veeam Backup & Replication™ provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of fully virtualized VMs and data running on-premises or in private cloud architectures. Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows, however, is another key component of the Veeam Availability Platform and should be used for workloads that Veeam Backup & Replication cannot protect, such as:

  • Desktops, laptops and tablets
  • Physical servers running on-premises
  • Cloud-based workloads running in Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other public clouds
  • VMs running on-premises with physical raw device mapping (pRDM) disks (pRDM) or on non-ESXi/Hyper-V hosts (e.g., KVM, etc.)
  • File-level backup to disk

Comprehensive backup and recovery

Built on proven Veeam technology
Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows Server edition adds the same, proven guest processing engine found in Veeam Backup & Replication™, which helps bring the power and flexibility you need to ensure Availability for your physical Windows workstations and servers through:


  • Changed block tracking (CBT) driver1 NEW: Improve backup performance and decrease the backup window for server workloads, in comparison to existing driver-less change tracking, to meet more stringent business requirements for mission-critical applications and high transactional workloads
  • Active full backupsNEW: Mitigate risk and ensure backup chain continuity by scheduling periodic active full backups
  • Synthetic full backupsNEW: Eliminate the need for a periodic full Windows backup by creating forever-incremental backups that save time and storage

While more and more organizations are hosting workloads in the public cloud — including hyperscale public clouds like Microsoft Azure and AWS — there is still a need for a Windows backup and recovery tool that has the power and features you need, is easy to use and fits within your budget.

Endpoint protection for your entire workforce

Availability anywhere — in the office, at home or on the go

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is great for endpoint devices whether they’re in the office, at home or on the road.

Fortunately, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows helps organizations overcome many everyday challenges such as lapses in connectivity, hardware failures, file corruption — even ransomware or theft — that can impact employees no matter where they are, including:

  • USB backupNEW: Incrementally back up USB hard drives to ensure your workstations and their critical data are protected
  • CryptoLocker protection for USB devices: Protect backup files residing on USB-based backup storage from potential CryptoLocker-type threats by automatically ejecting the backup storage immediately after a successful backup is completed
