Veeam has spotlighted its vision for the future at its annual user conference, VeeamON 2022.

The event was a hybrid experience for almost 45,000 registrants from across the globe, with the company outlining its vision for data protection across cloud, virtual, physical, SaaS and Kubernetes environments.

Anand Eswaran, CEO, Veeam, said, “It is a thrill to host VeeamON 2022 as an in-person event for the first time since our Miami event in 2019. While we’ve all made the most of virtual experiences over the past couple of years, there is no substitute for real-life engagement.

“At VeeamON 2022, we not only shar[ed] our vision for the future of data protection, but also celebrat[ed] the fact that Veeam is now the tied #1 data protection vendor in the market and that we have delivered 25 per cent ARR growth for Q1’22, with our Cloud, SaaS and Kubernetes businesses all growing significantly.

“While the macro trends facing the IT industry provide many challenges, such as the threat from ransomware attacks and the global adoption of multi- or hybrid-cloud architectures, we, as a community, have rallied together to deliver the most robust solutions to our customers.”

At VeeamON 2022, Veeam also released the findings of its inaugural Ransomware Report. An independent survey of more than 1,000 IT leaders, who had suffered cyber-attacks, revealed that on average, 47 per cent of an organisation’s data is encrypted and only 69 per cent of that data was recoverable.
