Veeam reports 28% growth in Q3’2021 as enterprises increase cloud adoption and invest in modern data protection

Veeam Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, announced another quarter of double-digit growth with an annual recurring revenue (ARR) increase of 28% year-over-year (YoY) for Q3’21. With the fastest revenue growth YoY (25.3%) in the most recent IDC Semi-Annual Software Tracker for Data Replication & Protection 1H’21, Veeam’s momentum is being fueled by more than 20 new product releases and major feature updates this year, and is preparing for two more in Q4: Veeam Backup for Office 365 and Veeam Disaster Recovery Orchestrator v5.

“As businesses struggle to thwart evolving cybersecurity threats and deal with unprecedented global and economic challenges, modern data protection continues to be the golden ticket keeping enterprises secure and driving sustainable business continuity,” said William H. Largent, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Chairman of the Board at Veeam. “With the market average YoY growth at just +2.9% for data replication and protection, our 15th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth is proof that Veeam’s solutions continue to meet and exceed customer expectations, helping businesses across the globe meet operational objectives, while protecting against growing ransomware attacks. This year, we’re also excited to celebrate our 15th ‘birthday’ in October, as we continue to lead the market for backup, recovery and data management. It’s been an amazing 15 years; here’s to the next 15…and beyond.”

“Q3’2021 proves to be a true milestone for Veeam in EMEA, with a 31% YoY increase in ARR. This development is driven by a dedicated and talented EMEA team that strives for excellence and effectiveness in everything we do,” said Daniel Fried, General Manager & Senior Vice President, EMEA, and Worldwide Channels at Veeam. “Customers ask for capabilities that help resolve their digital transformation and modern data protection challenges at once.
