Industry Renowned Global Cloud Marketplace “first to market” with Veritas SaaS Backup Solutions for Office 365 and Other Applications
Ingram Micro Inc. announced an expanded global engagement with Veritas, making Veritas’ SaaS Backup solutions available to channel partners worldwide via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace. The new “as-a-service” distribution model is a first for Veritas, further simplifying the sales and ongoing management of Veritas’ backup solutions at scale for channel partners worldwide.
“Organizations of all sizes are investing in digital transformation, including embracing cloud and SaaS applications. This trend is also greatly accelerated by the changing workflow and workforce ushered in by COVID-19. With the rapid adoption of cloud and SaaS, organizations must ensure they don’t overlook the responsibility to protect all their business data. Data protection is not guaranteed by the cloud and SaaS application providers,” says Simon Jelley, vice president of product management, Veritas Technologies.

Available now on the Ingram Micro U.S. Cloud Marketplace, and coming soon to the remaining Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplaces globally, the Veritas SaaS Backup solution is a comprehensive data protection service – including backup and recovery – for today’s leading SaaS applications, including Microsoft Dynamics and Office 365 applications, as well as G-suite, and Salesforce. While SaaS Backup is the first Veritas solution to launch on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, other Veritas solutions, including Backup Exec, are also expected to launch globally in the future as Ingram Micro and Veritas Technologies continue to build on their successful long-term partnership.
