NEW YORK– Inc. magazine today revealed that Zerto is No. 1567 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. This ranking places Zerto within the top third of the most successful companies in the United States, representing the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.
“Each year we’re included on the Inc. 5000 list is more gratifying than the last. It’s one thing to achieve success in this industry but to be able maintain it is a testament to the tremendous work of our team and the value our product provides to our customers,” said Ziv Kedem, CEO and co-founder, Zerto. “The recognition validates our efforts to provide a simple, scalable IT resilience platform built on a foundation of continuous data protection.”
Zerto has disrupted the backup and disaster recovery markets by fundamentally altering the way disaster recovery, data protection and cloud are managed. Traditional backup and disaster recovery products and tools do not meet the speed, performance, availability or data retention expectations dictated by businesses today. Zerto’s vision and actualization of converging backup and disaster recovery eliminates the legacy of outdated, failing technologies and products. Delivering the benefits of continuous data protection and unique journaling technology, Zerto redefines the way customers both protect and also recover data and applications in the ‘always-on’ economy.
