DUBAI, UAE: Veeam® Software, the leader in Data Protection and Ransomware Recovery, today announced its presence at GITEX GLOBAL 2023, taking place between 16 - 20 October at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The company’s participation this year is centered around the theme - ‘Cyber Resilience To Keep Your Business Running’.

Mohamad Rizk, Regional Director, Middle East & CIS at Veeam Software said: “Digital transformation is important to every enterprise in the Middle East today. However, organizations are also facing the risk of increased cyberattacks, especially ransomware attacks. As per the Middle East and Africa edition of the Veeam 2023 Data Protection Trends Report, 86% of regional enterprises experienced at least one ransomware attack in 2022 and 79% of enterprises have a ‘Protection Gap’ between their tolerable data loss and how often IT protects their data. When your business is digital, protecting and recovering data is critical. Following the adage of, ‘When you modernize production, you must modernize protection’, data protection strategies must be equally inclusive of physical, virtual, and cloud-hosted workloads. In addition, to optimize their agility and flexibility, businesses should plan for workloads moving across clouds and even back on premises. A data protection strategy should accommodate that fluidity.”

“As the #1 global provider of Data Replication & Protection software[i], we will use GITEX to showcase our latest innovations that help customers drive business efficiency and agility, protect data, and ensure organizations are well prepared and supported for the next stage of their digital transformation.”

Veeam will demonstrate how it offers organizations radical resiliency through the Veeam Data Platform - a single platform that provides data security, data recovery and data freedom for hybrid cloud infrastructure including Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes environments. In this age of sophisticated and frequent cyberattacks, the Platform gives businesses peace of mind, knowing their apps and data are protected and always available to keep their businesses running.

Our partners play a big role in helping customers by building skills and expertise around cloud, artificial intelligence and data security from consulting services all the way to professional and delivery services - and most importantly spread awareness about the importance of including data protection in their customer’s cyber preparedness strategy, as unfortunately most customers are dealing with data loss reactively,” she continued.
