Gartner’s Top 13 Backup And Recovery Software Leaders
From Veeam, Rubrik and Commvault to Dell Technologies and IBM, here’s where the top 13 backup and recovery software leaders rank in Gartner’s new Magic Quadrant.
Acronis ranks among the middle of the pack for vision and in the bottom pack for execution on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant. The Switzerland-based company’s Cyber Protect Cloud backup as-a-service platform offers cloud-based backup and security services primarily delivered by service providers through 30 data centers. Acronis’ Cyber Protect software can be deployed on-premises to provide an integrated backup and security solution for physical servers, on-premises VMs, cloud instances and endpoints. New Acronis security features launched for both on-premises and BaaS platforms improve malware detection and provided safe recovery of backup copies. In May, Acronis raised $250 million to increase recruitment and support around the vendor’s service provider channel.
Strength: Acronis has differentiated edge computing and ransomware security capabilities including the ability to actively scan for security threats and verify the authenticity and recoverability of backup copies.
Weakness: Acronis’ enterprise clients mostly use the solution to protect edge environments and endpoints. Gardner said Acronis’ product and sales strategy has limited focus on enterprise data center backup.
