VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 offers world-class standards of
data protection to businesses in the Middle East

Dubai, United Arab Emirates – January 29, 2003 – The Middle East operations of VERITAS Software Corporation, the leading storage software provider, today marked its entry into the region’s emerging business sector with the launch of the next generation of VERITAS Backup Exec™ for Windows Servers, its flagship backup and recovery software for the growing market of small-to-medium size businesses. Having captured significant market share among the Middle East’s largest corporations in the energy, telecoms, banking, and government sectors, VERITAS Middle East is now targeting the SME market, a segment estimated globally to quadruple its spending on storage over the next four years to USD$18.5 billion.

VERITAS is already number one in the USD$613 million worldwide Windows data protection market with 56 percent market share . VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 builds on the success of previous releases, offering key enhancements such as:
• The fastest backup and restore of Microsoft Exchange e-mail servers
• The first integrated support of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 (.NET)
• The fastest and simplest installation for Windows data protection
• The first “Anywhere Internet” interface, allowing administrators to monitor and manage their backup from any Internet-connected computer

“Information continues to grow at a phenomenal rate, and our customers must have a solid, reliable backup strategy to preserve the integrity of their data. We have worked with VERITAS to validate and test their software on our industry-standard server and storage platforms to provide a solution that optimizes the availability of vital information, helps lower the overall cost of managing information, and allows customers to easily transition to next-generation platforms including Microsoft’s Windows Server 2003”, explained Walid Moneimne, VP Enterprise Systems Group and Services, Dell, EMEA.

Customers and partners in the Middle East have already experienced great success with VERITAS software. “We’ve previously deployed other back-up solutions, but have found that Backup Exec from VERITAS delivers greater reliability. Tech Data has been a satisfied Backup Exec customer for three years, and this solution is a fundamental component of our business continuity strategy,” said Vishnu Vardhan, IT Director, Tech Data.

“As a UAE-based systems integrator, Raqmiyat has witnessed significantly increased demand for VERITAS’s Backup Exec solution as an integral part of storage area networks, especially for government, energy, and banking clients. Companies are looking to reduce costs by consolidating their storage environments, and VERITAS software plays a critical role in those consolidation efforts,” commented Sandeep Saxena, Program Manager for Technology Solutions, Raqmiyat.

Backup Exec Now Faster, Easier to Install, and Accessible from Anywhere via Internet

Fastest Backup and Restore of Exchange – VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 not only offers the fastest backup and recovery of Exchange environments, 88 percent faster than the previous 8.6 version , it also allows companies to restore individual public folders and attachments, providing an extra level of granularity to e-mail backup operations.

First Integrated Microsoft Windows (.NET) Server 2003 support – VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 supports all Microsoft server platforms, including the upcoming Windows Server 2003 and .NET suite of products. VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0’s close integration with Microsoft builds upon a decade of experience designing products for Microsoft environments, including technology components embedded in Microsoft Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows Server 2003 operating systems, enabling high availability and efficient management of storage assets.

Fastest and Simplest Installation – New installation wizards and automation technology allow users to install VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 in ten minutes, the fastest backup installation on the market, minimizing backup administration costs.

First Anywhere Internet Interface – The first “Anywhere Internet” web-based console for backup and recovery software allows administrators to monitor and manage their backup and recovery jobs from any Internet-connected computer, anywhere in the world.

VERITAS Software’s status as the undisputed leader in the Windows data protection was confirmed in a recent independent survey of partners and customers, with 96 percent of participants recognizing VERITAS as the leader in backup and recovery, and 97 percent prepared to recommend its products to other companies. In the Middle East, the VERITAS name has become a byword for data protection and accessibility.

“Whether it’s a small, family-owned business or a company competing with the largest in the world, the VERITAS record for protecting our customers’ critical information is unmatched in the industry,” said Mike Hynes, Regional Manager, VERITAS Middle East. “Today’s introduction of VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 demonstrates that we are not resting on our laurels, but advancing data protection technology in ways that matter most to our customers across the region -- providing faster, simpler, and more cost-effective backup and recovery.”

VERITAS Backup Exec 9.0 for Windows Servers is now available through an authorized global network of distributors and resellers for a U.S. suggested retail price of $795. Add-on options and agents are available for high performance, application integration, and disaster recovery requirements.
