As Senior Product Marketing Manager at Metallic, I was honored to recently have been awarded a CEO Living Our Values Award by our leadership team for the Metallic Threatwise launch. With ThreatWise, Commvault moved into uncharted territory as the only data protection platform to offer fully-integrated deception technology, capable of surfacing unknown and zero-day cyber threats before they reach your data – and it’s time to recover. Bringing this next-generation service to market was a significant milestone in supporting how our customers combat and respond to cyber threats, and I was fortunate to be a part of the team who helped deliver these capabilities.
Winning this award made me reflect on my time at Commvault and how it has shaped my professional journey. I joined Commvault in 2020 and was part of the first wave of employees who started during the pandemic. Growing up in New Jersey, and having spent the majority of my career in the tech industry, I was very familiar with the Commvault name – not only for it’s reputation as a perennial leader in the data protection space but also for its reputation as a great place to work.
As a Product Marketing Manager, I live in between many different worlds, driving and supporting launch activities for our Metallic services Commvault’s portfolio of SaaS-delivered data protection solutions. Working in this cross-functional capacity has challenged me but also presented the opportunity to work alongside many different areas of our business. From Product and Engineering to Operations and Customer Success (and everything in between), I partner with various stakeholders daily to achieve one common mission: deliver the best data protection services possible. Working as a collective unit to deliver against this promise is what drives me, and my colleagues, every day. On the customer front, this high level of collaboration has paid significant dividends as we rapidly innovate to bring best-in-class products to market for businesses of all sizes. On the professional front, it has allowed me to build new connections, expand my expertise outside of the Product Marketing domain, and further hone and mature my skillset.
When first arriving to the Metallic team, we were just getting our feet underneath us. Now, just three short years in, the trajectory and the growth have been remarkable. What started as an incubation project within Commvault, Metallic has achieved hyper-growth – more than tripling our portfolio offerings, garnering around 3,000 customers, and introducing new innovations that disrupt and advance the data protection market. I know everyone in Commvault has worked so hard to make this happen – it’s the teamwork, the maniacal focus on helping our customers, and the drive of our employees that have allowed us to reach this massive achievement.
Our values – we connect, we inspire, we care, and we deliver – continue to move our business forward. The past few years have been a wild, exciting ride, and I can’t wait for what the future holds for Commvault and Metallic.
