Zerto Begins 2024 With a Wave of Key Industry Awards
Zerto recognized as an industry leader by Cloud Awards, TechTarget, Cloud Computing Magazine, and CRN Magazine
BOSTON – February 6, 2024 – Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, has entered the new year on a wave of industry plaudits, securing a number of significant industry awards that validate its position as a leading solution for disaster recovery, ransomware resilience, and multi-cloud mobility. These awards build on a year of significant growth — including strong momentum in the SEUR region — and position Zerto for an even more significant role in the industry in the year ahead.
“This flood of recognition for Zerto is immensely gratifying and speaks to the real need our solutions fill for companies beset by escalating ransomware attacks, sudden system failure, and more,” said Kevin Cole, director, product and technical marketing, data protection at Zerto. “Given the paramount importance of continuous operations, especially in the multi-cloud era, businesses simply can’t afford hours or days of downtime as they scramble to get their systems back on track. These awards testify to the importance of what Zerto offers and what other competitors could only hope to: some of the fastest recovery times in the industry, so that companies can quickly get back up and running after a cyber incident.”
Cloud Awards 2023-2024 Winner: Best Cloud DR/Business Continuity Solution
In January, Zerto was declared a winner in the 2023-2024 Cloud Awards program in the Best Disaster Recovery (DR)/Business Continuity Solution category. The Cloud Awards have recognized and honored innovation in cloud computing since 2011, spanning diverse industry sectors and inviting submissions from companies worldwide. Zerto was highlighted for its enterprise-class DR and business continuity solution, which deploys continuous data protection (CDP) to safeguard organizations of any size — no matter what kind of incident, outage, or attack they face.
“The Cloud Awards are delighted to offer this award to Zerto who offer a tailored disaster recovery and business continuity solution that utilizes CDP to help safeguard organizations of any size against any cloud, application, or threat,” said Annabelle Whittall, head of technical at the Cloud Awards. “With Zerto’s unique and unparalleled journaling technology, users have the capacity to ‘rewind’ and recover data from any point in time within seconds of a disruption. This means that organizations can travel back in time to restore data to its original state seconds before disruptions.”
Zerto Wins in 22nd Edition of TechTarget Storage Product of the Year Competition
Zerto was also recognized by the TechTarget Storage Product of the Year Competition, which has been honoring the best in enterprise data storage systems for more than two decades.
The award judges — which include consultants, analysts, users, and TechTarget editors — were particularly impressed with Zerto 10’s ransomware mitigation, journaling technology, and security features. In particular, they highlighted Zerto’s Cyber Resilience Vault, which uses a real-time warning system, data immutability, and rapid air-gapped recovery to protect critical data. Additionally, the judges were impressed with the expansion of Zerto 10’s capabilities for Azure and AWS environments.
Cloud Computing Magazine’s 2023 Backup and Disaster Recovery Awards
Zerto was also among the winners of this year’s 2023 Backup and Disaster Recovery Awards, presented by Cloud Computing Magazine. These awards recognize technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions to empower businesses of any size to maintain continuous operations in the face of challenging conditions.
Key to Zerto’s disaster recovery abilities is its block-level replication technology, which — unlike traditional snapshot-technology — has no impact on the production environment. Where competitive solutions rely on technologies which only backup every few hours, Zerto eliminates that potential room for error, allowing users to “rewind” and recover data from any point in time. That means users can time travel back to just a few seconds before a disruption.
Rich Tehrani, CEO of TMC, parent company of Cloud Computing, highlighted the ability of Zerto and the other winners to “feel confident during regular business, and reassured in stressful situations.”
