Gartner Recognizes EMC as a Leader in 2015 Enterprise Backup Software Magic Quadrant

As a world-leading Data Protection company, EMC prides itself on innovation and delighting customers each and every day. We believe recognition by Gartner as a leader in their 2015 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances is validation of our progress.

EMC has maintained its position in the Leaders quadrant in 16 consecutive reports since Gartner first introduced the Magic Quadrant for this category.

What is particularly noteworthy is that EMC is positioned above all vendors in ability to execute.  We believe that’s because of our relentless focus on delivering new and exciting capabilities – protecting data and applications wherever they live, whatever happens. We do that by offering complete protection, from continuous availability to archive – including coverage for on-premises, virtualized, hybrid cloud and born in the cloud applications – all from a single vendor. EMC’s robust solutions and commitment to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations is key to our prolonged success.

With EMC Data Protection Suite and its tight integration with EMC Data Domain, EMC’s enterprise backup and recovery software provides our customers a complete end-to-end solution with best-of-breed components designed to work together. In 2015, we have added common services, including Data Protection Search and CloudBoost. Such integrated capabilities help expand our efforts at offering our customers unified data protection solutions.

At EMC, innovation never stops.  With strategic acquisitions of Spanning, for protecting applications and data born in the cloud, and Maginatics, connecting all EMC data protection products to the cloud, as well as the introduction of ProtectPoint, which eliminates traditional backup infrastructure, EMC continues to redefine what’s possible in data protection.  We will continue raising the bar and acting as the change agent in our customers’ journey toward data protection transformation.

With an ever-expanding portfolio of solutions, EMC is redefining data protection.
