Inside VeeamON 2023: Shiva Pillay of Veeam Talks Americas, Channel, and Ransomware

Written by

In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 video interview, VMblog sits down with Shiva Pillay, the GM and SVP of Americas at Veeam, to discuss his new role of taking over the Americas. Prior to this change, Pillay was in charge of the AsiaPac and Japan (APJ) region for Veeam. Now, he will bring that same level of energy and success to the Americas.

Pillay tells VMblog that companies are facing many challenges in keeping their business running today. It is a far more complex IT environment that encompasses the cloud, SaaS and on-premises resources. At the same time, there’s a growing threat from cyberattacks as ransomware attacks continue to rise in frequency, affecting many organizations at least once. Veeam is focused on helping customers keep their business running by protecting their data and if the worst happens, helping them to recover rapidly.
