MIAMI, USA — August, 28th 2023 — Object First, the maker of Ootbi (Out-of-the-Box-Immutability), the first backup storage appliance purpose-built for Veeam®, today announced the appointment of Adistec as the primary distributor for their resellers network in Latin America.
Established by Veeam founders Ratmir Timashev and Andrei Baronov, Object First helps mid-size organizations ransomware-proof their backups by delivering effortless out-of-the-box immutability. Ootbi by Object First is designed and optimized to be the best storage for Veeam:
- Secure with out-of-the-box immutability that ransomware-proofs backups.
- Simple to deploy and manage with no training or security expertise required.
- Powerful to support ultra-fast backups and Instant Recovery.
“Ransomware continues to be one of the greatest cyber risks, and over 90% of attacks attempt to destroy backup data,’ said David Bennett, CEO of Object First. “Immutable backups are the best defense against ransomware. Object First makes immutable backup storage simple with Ootbi, delivering unbeatable performance without complex management overhead. We are thrilled to extend our presence to Latin America with Adistec to meet the strong demand from Veeam users.”
