Commvault Introduces Early Adopter Program for New Software as a Service (SaaS) Offerings for Endpoint Data Protection and Email Archive
Commvault, a global leader in enterprise data protection and information management, today introduced an early adopter program for two new Endpoint Data Protection and Email Archive Software as Service (SaaS) offerings to address the on-going market shift for Cloud-based solutions. Customers participating in the early adopter program can use the fully-managed cloud service to automatically and securely backup data on employee laptops and desktops and archive email, reducing the risk of data loss from breaches and lost or stolen endpoint devices. 

In addition to protecting against data loss, the SaaS offerings enable enterprise-wide compliance and eDiscovery of data on endpoints and in email. The endpoint data protection offerings increase productivity, thanks to self-service capabilities that enable employees to recover lost data and to securely share files with other employees.

"These new SaaS offerings enable enterprises to implement Commvault's Endpoint Data Protection and Email Archive solutions with little upfront investment, and no in-house infrastructure and application management resources," said Rama Kolappan, General Manager of Commvault's Information Management and Mobility Business Unit. "Data loss and leakage does not just reduce employee productively - it can also damage enterprises' reputations and erode their competitive advantages. With these new SaaS offerings, enterprise CEOs and CIOs can sleep easier at night, knowing their employees' endpoint data and email are being securely backed up to the cloud by the industry leader in data protection and information management."

Available and in use with customers globally as on premise solutions, Commvault's Endpoint Data Protection, Archiving and Search are now being offered as SaaS-based solutions through the introduction of Commvault's Early Adopter Program. 

Enterprises can use Commvault's new SaaS Endpoint Data Protection solution to:

  • Protect and secure critical company data residing on laptops and desktops with an automated backup service that doesn't interrupt user productivity.
  • Minimize data leakage with built-in security settings that allow users to encrypt files and folders and securely wipe data from lost or stolen laptops.
  • Secure visibility and control over endpoint data for compliance and litigation purposes with integrated full-text search and reporting from a consolidated pool of endpoint data.
  • Provide employees with a company-sanctioned, secure file sharing service that's easy to use, and delivers required visibility and control over company data-sharing practices.
  • Increase productivity with anywhere, anytime access to protected data through a web portal, mobile app and natively in Windows Explorer.
  • Enable secure mobile access to backup and shared files.

Commvault's new Email Archive SaaS offering enables enterprises to:

  • Support detailed archiving policies for any email environment - including cloud email solutions like Microsoft Office 365
  • Gain control over PST and NSF Files by automatically locating and migrating existing .PST and .NSF files into the archive, to help regain control of the information contained within those files.
  • Allow legal teams to collect data and execute holds and reviews without IT department intervention, accelerating results for early case assessments.
  • Cut the cost, risk, and complexity of email archiving with user-defined, content-based retention policies.

The Early Adopter opportunity is for customers looking to engage directly with Commvault to leverage these new SaaS offerings, and includes a personalized, "white glove" engagement that eases adoption and allows Commvault to gain critical working experience with customers to drive ongoing program adoption and market entry. Broad availability of these new SaaS offerings in the US is currently planned for later this fall.

Customers can maintain their existing working relationships with their software providers, as Commvault partners will be able to offer these new SaaS solutions for resale.  While some companies desire a "direct" relationship with the SaaS manufacturer, most SaaS solutions will be purchased through its broad ecosystem of reseller partners.  The new offerings are packaged to give resellers the opportunity to easily sell Commvault SaaS solutions to customers and build their services portfolio for increased deal volume, revenue, and margin.
