Veeam Announces Americas Impact Partner Awards

Veeam Software announced the winners of their 2023 Veeam Impact Partner Awards for the Americas at VeeamON. These awards are held annually to reward the outstanding success and commitment of Veeam ProPartner and Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partners that surpassed expectations by demonstrating expert knowledge of Veeam's solutions. Earlier this year, Veeam introduced updates to its ProPartner program that focused on supporting predictable partner profitability while ensuring that the partner business with Veeam is safeguarded.

Ransomware continues to be the biggest threat to business continuity. According to the 2024 Veeam Ransomware Trends Report, 75% of organizations were attacked at least once in the past 12 months, and 26% of those affected reported being attacked at least four times. Partners serve as indispensable allies for companies who are grappling with ransomware challenges and can play a pivotal role in fortifying defenses and ensuring rapid operation restoration.

In a world where organizations must continuously innovate and refine their operations, Veeam stands as a steadfast ally. This means Veeam collaborates closely with partners to guide our joint customers and enable organizations to protect, move, and recover their data to and from the platforms they prefer. Veeam is also committed to extending support for new platforms in order to give customers freedom of choice.

"Partners have been instrumental in propelling Veeam's success and will remain pivotal to our ongoing expansion endeavors," said Kevin Rooney, vice president of the Americas channel at Veeam. "In January, we unveiled a series of updates and enhancements to our ProPartner Network program, underscoring our commitment to empowering partners worldwide. This initiative aims to harness the burgeoning adoption of Veeam technology and fostering radical resilience among companies as they grapple with escalating cyber threats and operational disruptions. Winning a Veeam Partner of the Year Award is a testament to their exceptional contributions, and I am deeply honored to celebrate their achievements."
