We’ve seen the market recognize the importance of SaaS data protection, not only against loss but to satisfy growing compliance regulations. By joining with Kaseya, we gain the ability to bring our exceptional data protection and recovery products to more organizations around the world, as we continue to focus on helping all of our customers overcome their most pressing SaaS data and compliance changes.”
