Gartner has named Commvault a Leader in its 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions report.

Noting the increasing challenges that IT organisations are facing, such as ransomware attacks, rampant data proliferation, and rising security threats, Commvault says they need offerings that not only protect against these threats but also detect them before they happen.

In addition, the company says many customers are turning to its offerings to mitigate risk by replacing multiple point products with Commvault's integrated software and SaaS product for air-gapped ransomware protection.

Further, Commvault recently added to its portfolio with Threatwise, which gives customers end-to-end proactive and responsive capabilities to strengthen ransomware protection.

"We know CIOs are keeping data protection top of mind, especially as adoption of hybrid solutions continue to accelerate in the enterprise," Commvault product vice president Rangaraaj Rajagopalan says.

"We are helping these organisations consolidate their data management, simplify things and reduce their IT spend while protecting their most precious asset: their data.

"Nobody has the workload breadth and depth to manage this across the entire data estate like Commvault and the best part is we enable this today.

"We believe this is why Gartner continues to recognise us as a Leader."

Commvault is also continuing to grow its offerings through its broad partner ecosystem to engineer and provide revolutionary products intended to change the face of the hybrid cloud for customers.

Most recently, the company partnered with Oracle to include Metallic Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) on Oracle Cloud.

As part of Commvault's multi-cloud strategy, Metallic's services will be offered on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and available worldwide in all commercial OCI regions.

The 2022 Gartner recognition comes after GigaOm named Commvault a Frontrunner and an Outperformer in its most recent reports: GigaOm Radar for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection: Large Enterprises and GigaOm Radar for Hybrid Cloud Data Protection: Small and Medium-Sized Businesses.

Each GigaOm Radar Report weighs and rates vendors by execution, roadmap and ability to innovate. The Commvault Platform and Metallic SaaS portfolio scored the highest possible ratings in Key Criteria of cyber resiliency, data management and governance, Kubernetes support, BaaS and breadth of solution.

Commvault was also named a Leader and Outperformer in the firm's most recent report on backup solutions for Kubernetes-based applications, theGigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection.

GigaOm gave Commvault high marks as having a backup solution that supports more than Kubernetes workloads, making it suitable for hybrid applications that run across Kubernetes, VMs, and cloud services, consolidating backup operations on a single platform.

"It's an honour that Commvault's best-in-class data protection software is being acknowledged for its broad set of services, excellent cyber resiliency and regulatory compliance features," Rajagopalan says.

"We are committed to delivering our intelligent data services for the broadest range of platforms, with flexible delivery models."
