Attending VeeamON 2024 in Fort Lauderdale was a highly informative and enriching experience.

The central theme this year revolved around cyber resilience. Anand Eswaran, Veeam’s CEO, underscored the importance for organisations to go beyond mere backups and recognise the constant menace of cyber-attacks, especially ransomware. The agenda prominently featured sessions with a cyber resilience outlook, such as ‘Embrace the Breach with a Step-by-Step Cyber Recovery Plan,’ signalling a shift in focus for Veeam, to the importance of addressing the current threat landscape with solutions beyond traditional backup methods. This is an approach that we have already been propagating with our alignment of Operational Resilience, Business Continuity and Cyber Security services. As Veeam takes the step toward being more strategic in this arena, it maps perfectly with all of our value-added services and infrastructure.

Here are some more specific key points we gathered and how they will benefit both Daisy and our customers:
