Veeam Software, which develops backup, disaster recovery and intelligent data management software, has named Danny Allan as its chief technology officer (CTO) and senior vice president (SVP) of product strategy.

Allan, promoted from his previous role as vice president (VP) of product strategy, will lead Veeam’s global product strategy group and initiatives, "as well has spearhead the company’s technology vision" in delivering cloud data management. 

“Danny has had a significant impact on Veeam’s vision and strategic direction since joining the company in early 2017, and has been instrumental in cementing our market leadership,” said Ratmir Timashev, co-founder and executive vice president sales and marketing at Veeam. “As customers look to drive business agility and leverage the power of their data, Veeam must continue to innovate, and under Danny’s leadership, I know that we will accelerate our organizational growth as we move into Act II.”

Allan added: “Simplicity, flexibility and reliability are key to organizations across the globe, and Veeam’s leadership position in this area is clear. Our portfolio allows customers to protect and manage their data no matter where it resides — whether in virtual, physical or cloud environments — but I am excited at what’s yet to come, and I know that 2020 will bring a vast array of new innovations that ensure Veeam continues to cement its market dominance.”

Earlier in his career, Allan was director of security research at IBM and a member of the Security Architecture Board, where he co-authored the IBM Secure Engineering Framework. He holds multiple software patents in the cloud and security field.
