Veteran CEO Appointed To Accelerate Cloud-Enabled Business Continuity Leader’s Market Growth
Unitrends, a leader in enterprise-level cloud-empowered business continuity solutions, today announced Paul Brady as the company’s new chief executive officer. Brady previously held CEO and other senior leadership positions with ObserveIT, Riverbed Technology, Mazu Networks, Guardent, Exodus, Cohesive Technology Solutions, and Business Technologies, Inc.
“Unitrends has fabulous products, a great team, and a phenomenal market opportunity,” said Brady. “Combined with a strong channel community and top-ranked customer satisfaction, I see all the ingredients for building a great global, cloud based software company headquartered here in Massachusetts- something I am very passionate about – with huge potential for scale across its operations around the world.”
Digital transformation is creating an unprecedented explosion of data and is requiring IT to deploy new cloud, mobile, and social based technologies in order to gain greater flexibility and agility for their businesses. Most businesses understand that keeping their business running and protecting their ideas and data is non-negotiable. However, according to Unitrends research, over 50 percent of businesses are concerned about their ability to recover the data with their current continuity solution. Cloud empowered solutions, like Unitrends Connected Continuity Platform, enable businesses to capitalize on the agility and economics of cloud, simplify the process of backup and recovery, and gain 100% confidence in the recovery point to come.
“Unitrends gets the continuity challenges and opportunities IT managers wrestle with every day,” said Brady. “Armed with the industry’s broadest portfolio of continuity products, the team totally understands how best to leverage the cloud to protect organizations’ data, applications, networks and ideas. Unitrends creates solutions that serve the unique needs of individual customers – today, and as they continue to grow. This capability, combined with a community of thousands of expert partners, is truly compelling for customers.”
Unitrends has received significant recognition in terms of industry awards and affirmation from the analyst community.
