Backup Exec 2010 Receives Top Nod in Windows IT Pro “Best of Tech Ed” Awards
Earlier this month, Symantec Backup Exec 2010 was recognized as the Best of Tech·Ed 2010 award winner by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine at the Microsoft Tech·Ed North America 2010 IT Pro Conference in New Orleans. Backup Exec 2010 was awarded the top honor in the backup and recovery category based on its innovation, strategic importance to the market, competitive advantage and exceptional value to customers.
Backup Exec 2010 (BE 2010) is the latest update to Symantec’s industry leading Backup Exec product and became generally available earlier this year. BE 2010 helps mid-sized businesses save time and money by protecting more data and utilize less storage through fully integrated data deduplication and archiving technologies. It also helps organizations eliminate duplicate data with a simple three-step process that does not require an additional point product. With Backup Exec 2010, midsized businesses can reduce downtime with granular recovery of Microsoft Exchange, SQL and Active Directory in VMware and Hyper-V environments from a single pass backup.
In addition to BE 2010, Symantec's flagship SMB security product, Symantec Endpoint Protection Small Business Edition won the Best of Tech·Ed 2010 award for the security category.
