Data protection made easy with Dicker Data and Veritas NetBackup Appliances

The Australian Cyber Security Centre reported one cybercrime lodged every 10 minutes from July 2019 to June 2020, while Gartner indicated safeguarding remote workforces as the security priority for businesses in 2021. With growing cyberattacks, ransomware, data breaches, outages and losses, the protection of data remains the biggest challenge we face in 2021.

As part of our commitment to continuously evolve and differentiate offerings that address growing IT challenges, Veritas Technologies, the global leader in enterprise data backup and recovery and Dicker Data, proudly bring to market the purpose-built, all-in-one Veritas NetBackup Appliances family.

Aim Mujib, Veritas Business Development Manager at Dicker Data said “The modern and distributed workforce is data-driven.

Addressing business challenges while delivering maximum value

  1. Simplified IT infrastructure protection
    Data is rapidly exploding. IT professionals need innovative technology and resources to effectively run applications with frictionless movement in and out of the cloud, deploy multiple appliances and address customer security threats. Veritas Appliances optimise security with predictive insights and streamline deployment, configuration, maintenance and backup and disaster recovery of IT infrastructure. This ensures customers a high performing data center with maximum security and greater operational and capital savings.
  2. Protection against ransomware
    Check Point Research (CPR) found ransomware attacks increased by 102 percent in 2021, with no signs of slowing down. As critical business data and applications become distributed and more vulnerable targets, business continuity and disaster recovery plans require innovative and fast restoring solutions. Veritas Appliances are purpose-built for resilience against ransomware and are comprehensive and simple to deploy for hybrid environments. They ensure lockdown of backup system from intruders, offering various immutability/indelible modes with capability to backup and replicate data, providing business application resiliency.
