Commvault launches award-winning Backup-as-a-Service solution, Metallic, in UK & EMEA

Commvault has announced the launch of its award-winning Metallic™ Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) solutions across the UK and EMEA region.

Metallic’s enterprise-grade offerings including Metallic™ Office 365 Backup & Recovery, Metallic™ Endpoint Backup & Recovery and Metallic™ Core Backup & Recovery, are now available in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Sweden. With this expanded availability, customers in these regions are now better able to seamlessly address growing business concerns around cost, scalability, and security as they protect critical data.

For EMEA businesses in particular, Metallic™ Backup & Recovery has been engineered to offer industry-leading data protection in support of customers’ Data Sovereignty and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance efforts. To be GDPR compliant, companies must meet strict standards for accountability, security, confidentiality, and resilience. Metallic offerings deliver the capability to monitor compliance policies and the amount and types of data stored, providing users with the expertise and capabilities to fulfil stringent GDPR compliance obligations. Through a tight engineering collaboration with Microsoft, Metallic is able to integrate Microsoft Azure’s secure and compliant platform offerings and tools that help to address GDPR compliance at a foundational level.

“This year we’ve been seeing more and more threats as cybercrime has grown significantly,” commented Jonathan Bowl, AVP & General Manager UK, Ireland & Nordics, Commvault. “If you’re managing data, you don’t want to leave this to chance. One of the things we’ve been able to do with Metallic is make this data management so simple, and enable IT leaders to obtain all the capability they need with just a few clicks. Commvault’s years of experience moving huge amounts of data to the cloud, combined with this simple solution, helps managers in businesses that have perhaps never used the cloud at all or very little, to have the confidence that they can manage their most crucial asset: their data.”

“We have been working very successfully with Commvault for many years now, our strategic relationship has helped many businesses, and we’re excited to see Commvault’s proven Enterprise grade data management solutions being extended, with a fully compliant, simple and scalable SaaS offering in the form of Metallic,” said Damon Robertson, Managing Director, COOLSPIRiT. “We look forward to being able to offer this capability to our UK customers to meet their ever-evolving data management requirements in the ‘new normal’ times we find ourselves, while having the capability to deliver on whatever the future may bring…”

According to Archana Venkatraman, Associate Research Director, Cloud Data Management, IDC Europe, security is also a major IT concern. Easy-to-use, integrated, automated, and cost-efficient data management solutions and integrated cloud storage service for backing up in the cloud can help companies adopt cloud storage with control and protection against cyberattacks.

“There is a real pressure to leverage the cloud to reduce capital spend, improve resilience, recovery, and data security as the risk of ransomware and cyberattack is sharply increasing. IDC research shows that 93% of organisations have been the targets of malware attacks in 2019, with a majority suffering successful attacks or multiple attacks,” Venkatraman said. “With the right cloud data protection strategy, companies can significantly reduce the time-to-value, which is critical to quickly become ransomware resilient in the wake of rising attacks. It’s clear that there is a broad need for SaaS-based solutions that meet these needs not only in EMEA, but across the globe.”
