ARMONK, N.Y., June 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Gartner, Inc. has positioned IBM as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) for the third consecutive year. And this year, IBM was once again positioned as one of the highest in ability to execute and the furthest in completeness of vision.
IBM continues to offer one of the most comprehensive sets of related professional and managed services in the industry, and it enhanced its long-standing history in disaster recovery with its 2016 purchase of Sanovi Technologies to complement its IT and applications resiliency orchestration capabilities. IBM also continues to integrate IBM Watson into its resiliency services offerings to enhance disaster avoidance.

"Beyond natural disasters and other outages, the increasing number of cyberattacks and other threats today requires the most advanced and most proactive set of solutions possible so our clients can combat those threats and focus on differentiating in the era of 'always-on' expectations."
