Fri, 11th Aug 2023

Commvault, an enterprise data protection leader for today's global businesses, has announced that the company has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the 2023 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions.

It was recognised for its portfolio of offerings being evaluated, including Commvault Backup & Recovery, Commvault Disaster Recovery, Commvault HyperScale X, the Metallic SaaS portfolio, and Metallic ThreatWise. 

The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analysed the company's overall Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute, Gartner says.

Commvault's modern data protection platform delivers a unified customer experience, helping them secure, defend, and recover their data on-premises, at the edge, or in the cloud. Customers rely on Commvault for the broadest support of legacy applications, modern workloads, and SaaS applications, all managed through a single intuitive platform. With Commvault, customers get enterprise-grade data protection that delivers agility and cost optimisation in the hybrid world.

"Commvault is honoured to be recognised as a Leader in data protection for the 12th time," says Tim Zonca, Vice President of Portfolio Marketing, Commvault. 

"From our perspective, the continued recognition makes it clear we do more than just check boxes, we are committed to delivering data protection technologies designed for the future," he says. 

"We provide the critical data protection and security coverage required of the hybrid world, protecting and recovering data across an entire hybrid cloud estate."

According to Gartner, Magic Quadrant reports are a culmination of rigorous, fact-based research in specific markets, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. 

Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries, and Niche Players. The research enables readers to get the most from market analysis in alignment with their unique business and technology needs, the analyst firm says.
 
"Commvault is a global leader in cloud data protection. Its industry-leading platform redefines the next generation of data protection as the only solution with comprehensive data protection, proactive data defense, advanced ransomware protection, and a single view across all your data," the company says. 

"This lets you secure, defend, and recover your data, applications, and production workloads on-premises, in the cloud, over SaaS, or spread across hybrid and multi-cloud environments," it says. 

"The result is early warning of attacks, active defense to reduce the impact of intrusion, and rapid, accurate recovery of your data."
