The “Best of VMworld 2019 U.S.” Awards recognize the most innovative new products in the server virtualization, cloud, and end-user computing markets.

In addition, Clumio was the winner in the Data Protection category, which recognizes software products or cloud services — such as disaster recovery as a service — that are designed to backup, restore and replicate data and/or achieve fault tolerance in a virtual server or cloud infrastructure. Judges for the Data Protection category commented that “They [Clumio] take security in backup seriously.”
