<p>For Immediate Release</p>
<p>VERITAS Sets Gold Standard in Windows Data Protection</p>
<p>Industry leader addresses needs of small and medium-size businesses, expands product integration and introduces new suite of software</p>
<p>NEW YORK – January 19, 2005 – Drawing from 20 years of backup software expertise, VERITAS Software Corporation (Nasdaq: VRTS) today set the Gold Standard in Windows data protection and outlined a comprehensive strategy for small and medium-size businesses to protect, recover, manage and safeguard the lifeline of their businesses – data. During a global news conference today, VERITAS chairman, president and CEO Gary Bloom outlined the company’s expanding commitments to solve customer problems by delivering key technology advancements and introducing an integrated suite of software aimed at providing companies with continuous Windows data protection.</p>
<p>“VERITAS is the trusted provider of Windows data protection software for small and medium size business customers,” stated Bloom. “With more than two million installations worldwide, VERITAS Backup Exec software is the leading backup and recovery software on the market today. Through our pioneering efforts in developing and delivering solutions that are tightly integrated with Windows, we are setting the Gold Standard in Windows data protection and enabling customers to cost-effectively protect, recover and manage their data.”</p>
<p>With more than a decade of partnership, investment and integration with Microsoft, VERITAS continues to provide comprehensive and cost-effective data protection for growing businesses with Windows server environments, particularly those organizations with 1,000 or fewer employees. This tight integration with Windows led Microsoft to standardize on VERITAS Backup Exec in 1999 to backup its own data. (see related press release, issued September 9, 2004).</p>
<p>Protect, Recover, and Manage Critical Business Data
Drawing upon its unique foundation of success with Microsoft Windows and leadership position in the market, VERITAS today formally introduced the VERITAS Backup Execä Suite of software aimed at helping businesses evolve to a continuous data protection model, with the ability to rapidly recover data in both centralized and distributed customer environments, and ultimately simplify their data management paradigm. The Backup Exec Suite includes the latest revision of the industry’s foremost and widely used data protection solution, VERITAS Backup Exec 10.0, as well as VERITAS Replication Execä 3.1, and VERITAS Storage Execä 5.3 (see related press releases, issued today). This powerful combination of products offers small to medium-size businesses unparalleled versatility, enabling them to improve data protection, to restore business faster when data is lost, and to reduce their total cost of ownership.</p>
<p>Data Protection
VERITAS Software delivers continuous data protection where organizations face some of their greatest risks to business critical information – in remote offices and on employee desktops and laptops. With the Backup Exec Suite of software, customers are assured that they have protection from a single, integrated, simple to manage solution without having to purchase additional hardware or hire and train new staff.</p>
<p>Data Recovery
For any business, the ability to recover data often translates to the ability to conduct business. Rapid server and data recovery is paramount when it comes to minimizing lost productivity and revenue from unplanned downtime due to viruses, data corruption, hardware failure, human error, and unforeseen natural disasters. VERITAS Backup Exec 10.0 software assures fast disk-based recovery.</p>
<p>Data Management
With the continued exponential growth of data, organizations can ill afford the costs of uncontrolled or unmanaged storage. To succeed, they need solutions that help them manage the cost of storage and adhere to legal and regulatory requirements for archiving data. The Backup Exec Suite of software incorporates simplicity and ease of use with a single console that enables administrators to manage and monitor multiple servers across their organizations, helps reduce the level and cost of administration required and easily scales as businesses requirements evolve over time.</p>
<p>“VERITAS has taken its proven expertise in backup software and created an integrated solution that encompasses the full spectrum of data protection,” said James Browning, principal analyst, Gartner Research. “As information technology continues to grow in importance to small and medium-size businesses as a path to productivity and efficiency, VERITAS is addressing this important market segment with the right tools and solutions, like the Backup Exec Suite.”</p>
