“Veritas is very excited to onboard Tech Data as a new distributor in India. This is in line with our growth and market expansion strategy, as well as from the feedback from our channel ecosystem. Now that the relationship with Tech Data is in place, our Channel partners can leverage the flexibility to work with a preferred distribution partner of choice,” said Sharad Gupta, Director – Channels & Alliances, Veritas, India & SAARC. “And, as a result, Veritas is able to further increase our presence across the region, have more field team members to support our channel partners, and ultimately support customers in making great decisions around Data Availability, Protection and Insight (API), helping to ensure that their businesses are up and running even during crisis.“
