STME extends partnership with Veritas Technologies
Effective backup and recovery crucial in the new digital business environment
STME, Dubai-based provider of IT solutions and systems integrator, has signed a new partnership agreement with Veritas Technologies LLC (which split from Symantec in March 2016), to provide clients in the Middle East with the company’s flagship backup and recovery solution, Veritas NetBackup.
Backup solutions are crucial for the continuation of uninterrupted business. The loss or potential loss of organisational data and information could result in organisational downtime that can cost a significant sum of money, or take a prolonged period of time for recovery, or worse, some organisations may never recover from the loss of data and information. The loss of organisational data and information can occur in various forms, from hardware failure, security breaches, cyber-attacks, human error, and natural disasters are some of the common causes.
“Protecting your organisation from the loss of data and information is crucial for the continuity of your business, especially in the service-oriented age businesses now operate in. The downtimes that result from the loss of data and due to the lack of a backup system, or a reliable backup system, may also cause the organisation that has already lost so much, to also lose customers and clients who demand quick turnaround,’’ said Mr. Ayman Al Bayaa, CEO of STME.
“Veritas is dedicated to providing our customers with cloud-ready solutions that enable them to easily extend and manage data protection from their data centre to the hybrid cloud,” says Amer Chebaro, Regional Director East Europe, Middle East, and Africa at Veritas. “With its extensive technical capabilities and sales expertise, STME is well-positioned to meet the needs of our customers and work with Veritas in successfully executing our growth and development plans across the region.”
Veritas NetBackup enterprise backup and recovery software can add new functionality and increased performance to support dynamic enterprise environments. “The Veritas solution empowers organisations by reducing complexity and outpacing relentless data centre growth, and greatly expands the effectiveness of backup and recovery. We are pleased to be able to offer these solutions to our clients in the Middle East,’’ said Mr. Ayman Al Bayaa, CEO of STME.
