  • 111 percent growth in new business pipeline.
  • 99 percent customer satisfaction for the US-based customer support staff.

“In the first half of this year we added more than 60 employees across R&D, support, sales and marketing, and we’ll be moving to larger facilities in both our Columbia and Boston locations,” said Coney. “We also expanded our senior leadership team with the addition of a VP of Marketing and a VP of Support. All Unitrends employees are committed to listening to our customers’ needs and delivering solutions that help reduce the burdening task of data protection in both the physical and virtual environments. We will continue to strive to become that ‘go to’ trusted partner for all data protection requirements.”
