We are opening registration early to allow enough time to process applications before the Beta build is available for download. So, if you are Veritas partner/reseller, please have your clients sign up early. All applications will be screened for US legal compliance a week or two prior to Beta program start date, which is currently expected to be sometime towards end of February 2019.

If you have any queries, please contact us at
