Ziv Kedem, CEO, Zerto

“Our very first ZertoCON was a tremendous success, but that wouldn’t have happened without the support of our customers and partners. From the very beginning they’ve been the driver of all of our accomplishments, and for that we wanted to show our appreciation by presenting them with an award that recognizes just how invested they truly are in everything we do.”

Russell Lynch, Sr. Support Specialist, KESA

“Zerto has been more than a provider of BC/DR technology for KESA. We see them as a true partner in our efforts to ensure our staff has access to data at all times – especially in the event of a disaster, be it man made like ransomware or a hurricane. With their help, we avoided what could have easily become a huge, costly issue, enabling us to quickly recover without affecting our commitment to customers and daily operations. We are honored to be recognized for how we handled the situation – with Zerto’s help.”
