Andy Ngvice president and general manager for the South Asia and Pacific region at Veritas, said:The current hybrid working model has been made possible through the adoption of cloud services and the use of cloud collaboration tools. However, companies are catching up with post-pandemic working practices to manage the increasing volumes of data created on different cloud storage locations.

Mark ShephardInternational Cloud Sales Leader at Veritas, said, “Organizations around the world have accelerated their adoption of cloud-based collaboration solutions, doubling down on multi-cloud initiatives to meet immediate business demands.
