Tinton Falls, NJ—June 18, 2015—Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a leader in enterprise data protection and information management, today announced it was positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the recently released Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances. 
The Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances covers the evolution of enterprise backup, incorporating “new products, solutions and techniques for protecting, backing up and recovering physical server and virtual server files, applications, system images, and endpoint devices. These backup products provide features such as traditional backup to tape, backup to random-access media (disk, flash, etc.) or devices that emulate the previous backup targets (e.g., virtual tape library [VTL]), data reduction (compression, deduplication, single instancing, etc.), snapshot, heterogeneous replication and continuous data protection (CDP).”
“Who says we are a leader? Gartner does!" said N. Robert Hammer, chairman, president and CEO, Commvault. “We believe being recognized as a Leader by Gartner for five years running is the strongest affirmation of Commvault’s innovation and customer satisfaction, as we continue to provide scalable, next-generation software innovations to our highly valued customers and partners. In a highly competitive industry made up of large, traditional players, as well as newcomers, Commvault has remained at the forefront of innovation. By continually improving and evolving, our singular approach to data and information management remains the vanguard in the industry.”
According to Gartner, Magic Quadrant Leaders have “the highest combined measures of ability to execute and completeness of vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth. A fundamental sea change is occurring in the recovery market. For vendors to have long-term success, they must plan to address the legacy requirements of traditional backup and recovery, while looking to expand their integration with and exploitation of snapshot and replication technologies. A cornerstone for Leaders is the ability to articulate how new requirements will be addressed as part of their vision for recovery management. As a group, Leaders can be expected to be considered part of most new purchase proposals and have high success rates in winning new business. This does not mean, however, that a large market share alone is a primary indicator of a Leader. Leaders are strategic vendors, well-positioned for the future.”
