Veritas Backup Exec™ is the Gold Standard in ransomware-resilient data protection providing businesses a simple, secure, and powerful way to ensure the integrity and availability of their data – from edge to core to cloud. Backup Exec protects all environments regardless of whether data resides on-premises or hybrid, multi-cloud—from a single physical server, thousands of virtual machines, to cloud data and workloads within the cloud—all with a single solution.

Veritas Backup Exec has introduced a new feature called “Ransomware Resilience” to combat the threat of ransomware. This feature provides an extra layer of security by blocking any non-Veritas process from writing to a backup disk or deduplication storage location.

Backup Exec’s built-in immutability and indelibility ensures operational and data resilience across disk storage, third-party hardware, cloud-based locked object storage. Backup Exec has built-in identity and access management such as Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and Secure Console, along with encryption for data both at-rest and in-flight.
