Leader in Disaster Recovery

In a report released in early 2014, Forrester Research, Inc., one of the most prominent research firms in the industry, highlighted 12 of the most prominent Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) providers in operation today. The thorough reported factored in numerous criteria, including current product lines, future business strategies and market awareness, in order to name some of the key figureheads in several different areas of disaster planning and recovery. When the final outcome was released, EVault showed some pretty impressive results amongst a highly competitive and innovative marketplace.

Specifically, EVault tied for the second highest rating regarding its primary DRaaS option, while it received the highest score available for future planning. The company also tied for the second highest rating regarding overall value and organizational vision. Of the 12 top IT providers, Forrester Research credited EVault with "one of the most progressive guarantees with its service."

EVault's president and general manager, Terry Cunningham, was ecstatic when he received the news. He was quoted as saying: "We believe this report is a great acknowledgement of how EVault is focused on making customers successful. EVault gives customers peace of mind - whether it be the ability to recover their data, their mission-critical systems, or ensure continuity of the IT operations, we partner with them so they have one less thing to worry about."
