New Delhi: Hitachi Data Systems Corporation, an exclusively possessed subsidiary of Hitachi, Ltd.

Businesses from their barrio do want to know that – their data is protected now more than ever before. The escalation in big data analysis and the competitive advantage it brings along has made that data more valuable to business. Accordingly, the need to protect data is swelling along with complexity, while budgets are decreasing. With its comprehensive agreement with Symantec, HDS can now afford the best information management, software and services by leveraging the combined capabilities of the two enterprises.
“Symantec is excited to provide Hitachi Data Systems customers access to its market-leading critical data protection and information governance solutions,” alleged Brent Simon, vice president, Global Systems Integrators and Partners, Symantec. Rhetoricising that – “Symantec and HDS have worked together successfully in the field for many years, delivering enterprise-class solutions to our joint customers. This agreement extends our partnership, enabling customers to acquire a complete hardware, software and services solution for their backup and recovery and retention needs from Hitachi Data Systems.”
Symantec NetBackup and Enterprise Vault are offered to HDS customers in North and South America, EMEA and Asia Pacific through existing Hitachi TrueNorth Partners or directly from HDS. Through a phased strategy for data protection solutions, HDS and TrueNorth Partners will work with customers to build a more advanced data management-based protection and recovery solution.
