When looking for a provider for data protection, it is imperative that the health of that partner is considered. With numbers like the ones reported by Veeam, it is demonstrating its commitment to customers through relevant initiatives and a focus on future trends.

Gone are the days when backing up your data meant making a copy to tape or disk at your leisure. Today’s businesses place new – and significantly more stringent – demands on backing up important data wherever it resides: in the cloud, on-premises, even within the infrastructure of software as a solution (SaaS) providers. Software manufacturers need to address these demands to stay pertinent to the needs of their broader clientele.
This does not seem to have been lost on Veeam.
Backup and recovery operations was once a set-it-and-forget it design architecture with a static reference architecture. Then along came the cloud, disrupting everything about how data is stored and processed. Now, more than ever, organizations are looking for their solution providers to lean in and help them navigate the shifting tides of “cloud backup.”
More than ever, cybersecurity solutions are core to any MSPs offering. No longer should technology service providers be farming this out to dedicated security providers.
