Acquisition of HubStor
The acquisition of HubStor enables expanded protection for a variety of SaaS-based applications, including Microsoft 365, Slack, Box and Google Workspace.

HubStor has been developed to overcome some of the biggest barriers to cloud data protection faced by enterprises. It is designed from the ground up to meet the high performance and scalability demands needed to protect, manage and restore enterprise data sets. The integration of HubStor technology into the Veritas portfolio will provide customers with a SaaS backup solution that lets them:
1. Customize and tailor configurations to a highly granular level – even down to individual items.
2. Recover data through a simplified self-service portal for end-users.
3. Comply with data sovereignty requirements with access to data center locations globally.
4. Discover insights on their backup environment through dashboards and reporting.
HubStor’s technology harnesses the power of Microsoft Azure, giving customers access to the Azure platform’s global footprint for data sovereignty and replication needs, the ability to leverage other Azure services, and the option to use their own Azure subscription.
