Remote work has been a growing aspect of businesses for the last few years. The Covid-19 pandemic has exploded this need rather rapidly. Data is no longer mainly at the core of a business. Now companies have to prepare for attacks and increate their IT resiliency and efficiency. Today with Veritas NetBackup 8.3, the company is stating it will enable its customers to dramatically reduce the risk and impact of system downtime, avoid disparate workload-specific point products and realize significant cost savings by standardizing on a single platform across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
