Metallic SaaS Data Protection, an offering from Commvault, Named 2020 SaaS Awards Finalist

Commvault, a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced that Metallic, Commvault's enterprise-grade SaaS data protection portfolio, is a finalist in the 2020 SaaS Awards Program in the "Best SaaS Newcomer" category. Highlighting solutions that appeared in the last 12 months, finalists in the Best SaaS Newcomer category have provided evidence of innovation along with positive reception and clear market demand.

Launched in October 2019, Metallic delivers industry-leading data protection technology with the ease and agility of SaaS delivery, getting companies up and running in protecting critical business data within minutes. Supporting a breadth of workloads, including VMware and SQL databases, endpoints, and Office 365, Metallic lets companies of any size easily and affordably back up and recover their critical on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid file and application data - while reducing manual effort for backup administration.

Since its launch, Metallic has received strong feedback from customers, partners, and industry analysts and media, especially surrounding its Endpoint Backup & Recovery offer, which directly supports customers as they navigate the current unique IT environment with the widespread need for remote work. Through this offer, Metallic has provided customers free data protection for up to 1,000 laptops along with unlimited Azure storage, from April until September 1.

"Software-as-a-service's force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business," said James Williams, Head of Operations, SaaS Awards. "This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodelling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape. From fulfilling orders to arranging meetings, SaaS technologies are more important than ever."

"From the start, Metallic's focus has been on filling a gap in the market by delivering a true, enterprise-grade SaaS data protection experience, and this has never been more relevant than it is today in our current economic climate," said Manoj Nair, General Manager, Metallic. "In Metallic, we combine Commvault's 20+ years of industry-leading data backup and recovery technology with the simplicity and scalability of a SaaS solution to meet customers where they are on their journey to the cloud, addressing critical needs such as supporting a remote workforce through our Endpoint offer. Hundreds of companies have signed up for our endpoint data protection support, and we are honored that this support is receiving recognition in the SaaS Awards program."

Now in its fifth year of celebrating software innovation, the Software-as-a-Service Awards program recognizes global solutions across a wide range of industry verticals, including Digital Marketing, Healthcare, and Conferencing, and goal-focused categories such as Productivity, Security, and Data.
