Approximately 20 percent of Unitrends' third quarter sales came from the competitive Trade Up/Trade In program, with a majority of customers switching from Symantec and Barracuda solutions. The experience of Jamin K. Miser, IT manager at Frates Insurance & Risk Management LLC, is not unlike that of others who made the switch.

"After switching from Symantec Backup Exec to Unitrends' backup solutions, we couldn't be happier," said Miser. "Unitrends' customer support is the best I've seen in the industry. We were up and running with a complete backup strategy in a matter of hours. Additionally, what used to take us six-to-eight hours a week to administer is now a matter of email notifications telling us that everything is working flawlessly. I would recommend Unitrends to any colleague." 

"Symantec Backup Exec customers who took advantage of our promotion earlier this year were able to realize for themselves the technical and financial benefits of our enterprise-class data backup and recovery solutions," said Mike Coney, CEO, Unitrends. "The combination of our Recovery Series of physical appliances and our Unitrends Enterprise Backup™ software-only solution provides customers with flexible data protection that spans physical, virtual and cloud environments, and easily adapts to meet changing IT infrastructure needs.
