Veritas is unifying data protection, from the edge to core to cloud - Help Net Security

Veritas Technologies introduced new innovations to its Enterprise Data Services Platform (EDSP) to help customers reduce risk, optimize cost, strengthen ransomware resiliency, and manage multi-cloud environments at scale.



With the launch of NetBackup 8.3, Veritas further empowers enterprise customers by improving the resiliency of their applications and infrastructure regardless of the context. By extending the core of EDSP— NetBackup—to include the Veritas Resiliency Platform (VRP) and CloudPoint, Veritas delivers a single platform with enterprise resiliency features and functionality to protect and recover data wherever it resides.


As global enterprises accelerate digital transformation to support a remote workforce at scale and seek to reduce costs in the face of economic headwinds, IT resiliency and efficiency are more critical than ever. With the innovations in NetBackup 8.3, organizations can dramatically reduce the risk and impact of system downtime, avoid disparate workload-specific point products and realize significant cost savings by standardizing on a single platform across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.


“Scale, flexibility and simplicity are continuing to drive up cloud adoption,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “While the benefits of these multi-cloud strategies are well established, they also bring data protection challenges as multiple point products can increase risk and operational complexity. Businesses can simplify the backup and recovery challenge by standardizing on a single platform.”
