Customer Successes

Horizon Business Services

Florida’s Horizon Business Services serves 4,000 businesses and 30,000 users with hosting, and hasn’t raised hosting prices in nine years. Backup Exec 2014 contributes to that efficiency by backing up 20 percent faster and deduplicating at a 10 percent higher ratio than Backup Exec 2012, deduplicating 3x faster than Backup Exec 2010, and achieving 99% backup success and 100% recovery success with 20 recoveries per month.

Mitre 10 NZ

To support rapid growth, streamline backup of 16 terabytes, and simplify protection of a nearly 100 percent virtualized environment, New Zealand-based home improvement chain Mitre 10 turned to Symantec to upgrade its approach to data protection. Results include up to 3x faster backups, 67 percent less backup administration time, more than 400 hours per year reclaimed in productivity, and projected five-figure annual savings by essentially eliminating tape operations.

W.T. International B.V.

W.T. International provides data protection and other IT services to more than 100 other businesses. To enhance data protection, it upgraded to Symantec Backup Exec 2014. This enables the seven-person IT team to streamline backup administration by 50 hours per year, speed up backups for virtual and physical systems by up to 100 percent, enable daily virtual server backups to recover more current data, and save several thousand euro.


IRSAP, a heating industry leader in Italy and in Europe, needed to implement a "turnkey" solution to back up its data. The company had a backup solution that could not meet requirements for reliability and speed, and also required excessive manual maintenance. To streamline backup, IRSAP turned to SORINT, a certified Symantec Gold Partner with expertise in data protection, and Symantec Backup Exec 3600 Appliances.

Task Force Tips, Inc.

“When we deployed Backup Exec 2012 in production, it immediately reduced our backup window by almost 24 hours every week. Backup Exec 2012 has afforded us the ability to base weekly full backups from an enumerated virtual machine image thereby providing best in class data protection.” - Brandon Mosak, Network Manager

Health New England

“Symantec Backup Exec 2012 is a user friendly solution that maintains the highest degree of data protection. The first time I saw Backup Exec’s new user interface, I knew it was going to revolutionize how I manage our backup environment.” - David Lewis, LAN administrator.

Premiere Global Sports

“We have trusted Backup Exec to backup our data for several years and the transition from a physical server infrastructure to virtual infrastructure didn’t change our choice in a data protection solution. Symantec’s V-Ray technology embedded in Backup Exec allowed us to easily expand to a virtual environment and feel confident in our decision.” - Jason Drake, Director of Infrastructure and Security
