Symantec Adds Reporting

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Symantec Corp. (NasdaqGS:SYMC - News) today unveiled Veritas Backup Reporter 6.0, an enterprise backup reporting tool that provides IT administrators with comprehensive visibility into backup and recovery operations.

Backup Reporter enables IT administrators to enhance backup and recovery operations, verify backup service level compliance, and run backup as a shared IT service. These capabilities are a valuable asset for managed service providers or organizations that need to analyze and justify backup expenditures. Backup Reporter enables comprehensive data management, backup consolidation, and reporting of heterogeneous environments which support Symantec's Veritas NetBackup(TM) and Backup Exec(TM) products, in addition to third-party backup solutions.

Enhancing Backup and Recovery Operations

Exploding data volumes and heterogeneous environments make it difficult for IT administrators to gain essential visibility to accurately report on backup and recovery. Backup Reporter's centralized reporting view of single or multiple backup applications help customers to optimize their environment by aggregating historical data to better forecast trends and help justify the need for critical capital expenditures such as tape drives or additional backup servers and backup media.

Backup Reporter flexibly adapts backup and recovery operations to the needs of the business. To address the variety of key stakeholders within an organization, from CIO to backup administrator, Backup Reporter allows users to customize the definition of backup success based on the audience need. Furthermore, IT administrators can be proactive in assessing backup operations as all views are hierarchical with drill-down capabilities. To jumpstart the reporting process, IT administrators can select any of the hundreds of out-of-the-box reports available, or can use the report wizard to create a customized report.
