Aside from winning in the Best Enterprise Backup/Recovery/Archive Software category, VERITAS Software's VERITAS Backup Exec swept away the competition to take the prize for Best Local Backup/Recovery/Archive Software. Edging out last year's winner—another VERITAS product, VERITAS NetBackup Professional—Backup Exec is clearly the favorite for backups whether you run a small office or a large organization. One reader noted that the product is "very easy to configure and use" with "lots of features." Another respondent raved, "For a remote site or a small data center, this product rocks! Every aspect of it can be managed with a few clicks from its intuitive interface." (For more details about Backup Exec 9.0, see Best Enterprise Backup/Recovery/ Archive Software, page 55.)
