Ingram Micro has expanded its global engagement with Veritas, making Veritas’ SaaS Backup solutions available to channel partners worldwide via the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace.
“Organizations of all sizes are investing in digital transformation, including embracing cloud and SaaS applications,” said Simon Jelley, vice president of product management at Veritas. “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,”
Available now on the Ingram Micro U.S. Cloud Marketplace, with plans for global marketplace expansion, the Veritas SaaS Backup solution is a comprehensive data protection service – including backup and recovery – for a variety of 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.
“Tapping into the global buying power of the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace works to enable our partners to sell SaaS applications including Office 365, together with Veritas’ data management and protection solutions, helping us even better respond to the growing need for SaaS-based solutions, consumed on demand,” added Tim FitzGerald, vice president, Cloud Channel at Ingram Micro.
Ingram Micro’s Cloud Marketplace serves 6.5 million seats, offering more than 120 cloud solutions through a curated selection of SaaS and IaaS solutions.
This new “as-a-service” distribution model further simplifies the sales and ongoing management of Veritas’ backup solutions for allied channel partners worldwide.
