The GigaOm Radar for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection (Enterprise) recognizes the importance of data protection on customers’ journey to the cloud, especially the difficulty in protecting data generated in multiple places. According to the report: “The range of options to protect customer environments makes Commvault well suited to all market segments, especially to larger enterprises with complex environments where a unified solution that simplifies the complexity is highly valued. Commvault’s ability to solve complex data management challenges extends beyond backup and includes capabilities to further protect customer data.”
