SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 --  Zetta.net, an
enterprise-grade cloud backup and disaster recovery (DR) solution

With layoffs, a slew of major management changes including the recent
termination of CEO Steve Bennett, and several product challenges such
as the discontinuation of Backup Exec.cloud, it's been a rough ride
for Symantec. 
While the recently ousted Bennett was rewarded with an exit package
reportedly worth close to $14 million, Symantec Backup Exec customers
that are stuck in a long-term contract don't have the luxury of a
golden parachute to a different solution. 
In light of all this unsettled business, Zetta.net is offering an
alternative for Symantec customers and partners who are ready to make
the switch. Backup Exec.cloud users will receive three months of free
service with an annual contract which includes unlimited software
licenses for local and cloud backup and disaster recovery, secure
cloud storage, and 24x7 U.S.-based support, at a price point that is
up to 60 percent lower than the cost of Backup Exec.  
"It's increasingly difficult for companies with disparate product
lines like security, systems management, and storage to deliver
innovation and value for specific technology segments," says Gary
Sevounts, chief marketing officer, Zetta.net. "Unlike Symantec,
Zetta.net is wholly committed to the cloud backup and disaster
recovery space, delivering cutting-edge functionality at much lower
prices. By and large, this is why our customer base grew by 130
percent in 2013." 
With 130 percent customer growth and 310 percent partner growth last
year, Zetta.net has more than 950 satisfied customers who can attest
to the value of its award-winning, cloud-based solution.  
Fully certified to meet SSAE-16, HIPAA, ITAR, and FINRA standards,
Zetta.net's enterprise-grade cloud backup and DR service is an
appliance-free solution, optimized for large data sets from 1TB to
200TB. All data is encrypted in transit across the Internet and at
rest in SSAE-16 certified datacenters, with 99.99996% backup and 100%
