NAKIVO, a fast-growing software company dedicated to protecting virtualized and cloud environments, recorded an impressive 85% revenue growth in 2017 as the company continues to demonstrate rapid customer adoption and fast pace growth in the VMware, Hyper-V, and Amazon EC2 backup markets worldwide.
