Company Profile

Veritas gives organizations the ability to delete worthless data and recognize valuable information, enabling them to achieve objectives more quickly, efficiently, and cheaply. Data is exploding at incredible rates and scattering across servers, clouds and hypervisors around the world. Unchecked data growth is an expensive burden—and potentially a security risk waiting to happen.

Our solutions enable organizations to understand their own information, to distinguish between what is extra important and what is just extra. Across systems, environments and devices, Veritas helps organizations achieve insight and realize exceptional application availability.
