Veeam kicked off its annual user conference, VeeamON 2022, the Modern Data Protection Conference of the Year, delivering a hybrid experience to almost 45,000 global registrants.  The event provides an insight into Veeam’s roadmap, celebrates the company’s ranking as the joint #1 provider of data protection solutions, and unveils the findings of its inaugural Ransomware Report.

Outlining the company’s vision for data protection across Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS, and Kubernetes environments through a blend of on-site and virtual experiences, VeeamON 2022 features keynote sessions from Veeam’s leadership, including new CEO, Anand Eswaran, and Danny Allan, CTO & SVP Product Strategy. Guest speakers are also expected to provide insight to help customers and partners looking to accelerate their data protection journey.

Veeam CEO Anand Eswaran 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 are not only sharing our vision for the future of data protection but also celebrating the fact that Veeam is now tied for the #1 data protection vendor in the market.”

Over the past year, Veeam has unveiled more than 30 product updates, including Veeam Backup & Replication v11a, which includes cloud-native solutions to protect data across AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. These innovations helped Veeam enjoy a record FY21, reporting 27 percent ARR growth YoY. Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 business grew faster than expected with 73 percent YoY growth and Veeam Availability Suite growing over 36 percent YoY. This success has continued into Q1 2022, with Veeam reporting 25 percent ARR growth YoY and a 78 percent increase YoY across its subscription business. Veeam is tied for the #1 provider worldwide during 2H’21 in IDC’s DR&P market with this consistent performance. Veeam’s YoY growth was more than double its nearest named top five competitors in the market.

Eswarn added:

“To be tied #1 in the market is a huge achievement, not just for Veeam but our entire ecosystem, and we want to thank our customers and partners for making this a reality. The entire Veeam team is obsessed with driving customer success, but to see this recognized is terrific. During VeeamON 2022, attendees will hear how Veeam’s roadmap for the rest of this year and into 2023 will deliver more breakthrough innovations; innovations that will help customers drive business efficiency and agility, protect their data no matter where it resides, and ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of digital transformation.”

Ransomeware Report

At VeeamON 2022, Veeam is releasing 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 percent of an organization’s data is encrypted, and only 69 percent of that data was recoverable.

Just as alarming, the survey showed that paying the ransom does not assure recoverability, with 94 percent of attackers attempting to destroy the backup repositories as part of the attack, and over half of companies admitted that their cybersecurity protocols require a complete overhaul or significant improvement to protect against growing threats. In 2021, only 19 percent of organizations could recover their data without paying the ransom; Veeam’s focus is on helping the other 81 percent of global organizations make that same claim moving forward.

Girls Who Code

Community is at the heart of VeeamON 2022. While the company is focused on sharing knowledge with its customers and partners, it is also committed to the future generation of IT professionals through its support of Girls Who Code. VeeamON attendees, whether attending virtually or in person, can help make a difference in closing the gender gap in technology. Attendees are encouraged to step into the VeeamON 2022 photo booth and take a photo or video to show their commitment to the next wave of IT professionals and select Girls Who Code as their charity of choice, and in doing so, Veeam will make a donation on their behalf.

CEO of Girls Who Code, Tarika Barrett, explained:

“At Girls Who Code, we understand that it’s not enough to foster a passion for computer science among girls and young women. We also need to build pathways to ensure that they are given equal access to opportunities that turn their interest into lucrative and exciting careers. We’re grateful for our partnership with Veeam as we work together to close the gender gap in tech, level the playing field for our most marginalized students, and build an inclusive tech workforce that’s representative of the diverse world we live in today.”

Registration for VeeamON 2022 is still open for virtual attendees.
