Extends STaaS leadership, now with 10 concurrent SLAs, the industry’s most comprehensive set of service level agreements

LAS VEGAS, NV – June 19, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Pure Storage//Accelerate — Pure Storage® (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers the world’s most advanced data storage technology and services, today announced three new advanced Storage as-a-Service (STaaS) service-level agreements (SLAs) for the Pure Storage platform – cyber recovery and resilience and site rebalance – further empowering organizations to guarantee outcomes and reduce risk in their critical data infrastructure.

AI is revolutionizing business, and not always for the better. Cyber criminals are increasingly using AI to increase the frequency and impact of cyber attacks, especially ransomware. However, existing IT infrastructure generally lacks flexibility to react to the rapid pace of change required to protect data, and rapidly recover if needed.

The Pure Storage platform delivers agility and risk reduction to organizations with a simple, consistent storage platform and an as-a-service experience for the broadest set of use cases across on-premises, public cloud, and hosted environments. At the heart of the platform, the often imitated but never duplicated Evergreen® architecture brings continuous and non-disruptive upgrades helping enterprises adapt to dynamic business environments. With the industry’s record number of concurrent SLAs, customers get the reliability, performance, and sustainability their business requires.

Further advancing Pure’s existing cyber resiliency offerings, including SafeMode for ransomware recovery, today, Pure announced new innovations enabled by the platform including:

  • Enhanced Cyber Recovery and Resilience SLABuilding on the first-of-its-kind ransomware recovery SLA, Evergreen//One™ is expanding its coverage to include disaster recovery scenarios as well. This new and improved Cyber Recovery and Resilience SLA delivers a customized recovery plan, ships clean service infrastructure within a defined SLA, provides onsite installation, and supplies additional professional services for data transfer. In addition, Pure will collaborate with organizations to build and maintain a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. Ongoing quarterly reviews are included to ensure best practices adherence, ongoing risk assessments, and operational security remediation. Organizations can rest assured knowing if an unforeseen disruptive event occurs, Pure will help rapidly restore normal operations, guaranteed
  • New Security Assessment: The new assessment provides deep visibility into fleet-level security risks and offers actionable recommendations to maximize cyber resilience. Based on aggregated intelligence across 10,000+ environments, the Security Assessment presents numerical scores from 0 to 5 to benchmark the security posture of the entire storage fleet. It also delivers best practices to align with NIST 2.0 standards, advance regulatory compliance, remediate potential security anomalies, and rapidly restore operations if a security-related event occurs. Additionally, the new AI copilot leverages the security assessment to provide Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) with the visibility into benchmarking their security posture against other Pure Storage customers.
  • New AI-Powered Anomaly Detection Enhancement: Discover threats such as ransomware attacks, unusual activity, malicious behavior, and Denial of Service attacks via performance anomalies. This expands on previously available ransomware detection based on data reduction anomalies. The expanded detection is built on multiple machine learning models running to identify unusual anomalous behavior. The models analyze customer environments with historical data for anomalous patterns based on heuristics of performance as well as user context on how storage is used. Leveraging this capability, customers can identify the last known good snapshot copy to mitigate operational impact by quickly identifying recovery point targets to restore data, reducing risk and guesswork.

In today’s dynamic market and competitive landscape, it is imperative for IT to be able to rapidly adapt. As the only STaaS solution that allows both scaling up and down the service, today Pure Storage further distanced itself by providing even more flexibility:

  • New Site Rebalance SLA: The Evergreen//One Site Rebalance SLA delivers service flexibility for organizations looking to adjust existing reserve commitments as their storage requirements evolve. If there are no longer capacity needs at a specific site, if a data center is being consolidated, or if performance at one site was oversized and excess capacity exists that can be used elsewhere, the Site Rebalance SLA empowers organizations to rebalance reserve commitments once every 12 months for each Evergreen//One subscription.

“As Pure Storage continues to revolutionize enterprise data storage, our mission remains: to provide a simple, flexible, and resilient as-a-service storage platform that not only addresses current data and storage management needs, but mitigates future risk and uncertainty. Through continuously improving services and the broadest set of outcome-driven SLAs, Pure is the only data storage platform future-proofed for innovation.” — Prakash Darji, GM, Digital Experience, Pure Storage

“Today’s enterprises demand more than just technology; they seek assured outcomes. Reliable, flexible consumption models for enterprise storage that scale with business needs are essential. Pure Storage’s STaaS platform offers a market differentiating, comprehensive set of guaranteed SLAs, striking a balance between flexibility and simplicity while delivering high performance and resilience – all in support of customer growth in today’s dynamic business landscape.” — Lara Greden, Senior Research Director, IT Infrastructure as-a-Service Solutions, Flexible Consumption, and Circular Economy, IDC

Pledge underscores commitment to AI ethical best practices across the organization to help protect partners through the pillars of consent, transparency, and context

Burlington, Massachusetts – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — N-able, Inc. (NYSE: NABL), a global software company helping IT services providers deliver remote monitoring and management, data protection as-a-service, and security solutions, today announced its Pledge on the Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The pledge describes the company’s commitment to openness and protecting partner data and intellectual property.

The newly unveiled AI strategy outlined in the pledge is built on three pillars: consent, transparency, and context—and designed to foster user control and privacy, clear communication, and appropriate use. Specifically:

  • Consent: Opt-in is our fundamental principle, and we ask for your consent before you engage with any AI in our products or services. Affirmative consent ensures we respect user preferences and privacy while mitigating risks associated with unauthorized data usage.
  • Transparency: We prioritize accountability, education, and informed decision-making; and we’ll tell you when and how we’re using AI tools with your data. The more knowledge our partners have, the more confidence they’ll have to explore the possibilities of AI.
  • Context: We strive to deliver maximum value and effectiveness through careful, efficient use of technology. This means we’ll continuously work to understand the unique challenges and requirements of each situation and narrowly tailor AI solutions to each use case.

“We believe that artificial intelligence will bring significant benefits and efficiency to our partners,” explained Nicole Reineke, N-able Distinguished Product Manager and Director of AI Strategy. “Yet, it demands a prudent balance of oversight to safeguard customer data and to clarify for data owners the uses and implications of these algorithms. At N-able, we are dedicated to unlocking AI’s potential responsibly, ensuring transparency, and upholding the autonomy that our partners deserve concerning their data. It’s crucial to bear in mind the ‘artificial’ in AI and build for human oversight to maintain an ethical approach, a commitment that signifies a major step in our journey.”

“I believe that we are at a key transformational point in our industry,” shares Jimmy Puckett, CEO of SPINEN. “I expect amazing advances at speeds we have never seen before. As an industry, I believe we have invested great resources in protecting our data and our clients’ data from security breaches, and we must invest as much as or more in controlling how the data we manage is being used in AI. It is critical as MSPs that we have a full understanding of how and where both our data and our clients’ data are being used. We are thrilled to see N-able take such a proactive stance on data sovereignty —this is a great example of partnership. We are advising our SPINEN clients to only partner with companies that have a similar perspective.”

The pledge includes some helpful guidance on how MSPs can use AI to improve their efficiencies.

N-able is also implementing AI to maximize the efficiency of its operations, including partner interactions, resolution times, prediction of device behaviors, and system performance, as outlined in the pledge.

About N-able
N-able fuels IT services providers with powerful software solutions to monitor, manage, and secure their customers’ systems, data, and networks. Built on a scalable platform, we offer secure infrastructure and tools to simplify complex ecosystems, as well as resources to navigate evolving IT needs.

AI Storage as-a-Service and other solutions showcased at //Accelerate deliver the best foundation for AI and cyber resilience

LAS VEGAS, CA – June 19, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Pure Storage//Accelerate – Pure Storage® (NYSE:PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers the world’s most advanced data storage technologies and services, today announced new capabilities in the Pure Storage platform that are changing the game for how IT and business leaders can radically improve their ability to deploy AI, improve cyber resilience, and modernize their applications.

The Pure Storage platform delivers agility and risk reduction to organizations with a simple, consistent storage platform and an as-a-service experience for the broadest set of use cases across on-premises, public cloud, and hosted environments. At the heart of the platform, the often imitated but never duplicated Evergreen® architecture brings continuous and non-disruptive upgrades, helping enterprises adapt to dynamic business environments. With the industry’s record number of concurrent SLAs, customers get the reliability, performance, and sustainability their business requires.

“Pure is redefining enterprise storage with a single, unified data storage platform that can address virtually all enterprise storage needs including the most pressing challenges and opportunities IT leaders face today, like AI and cyber resilience. The Pure Storage platform delivers unparalleled consistency, resilience, and SLA-guaranteed data storage services, reducing costs and uncertainty in an increasingly complex business landscape.” — Charles Giancarlo, Chairman and CEO, Pure Storage

Today, Pure Storage announced new innovations in the platform including:

  • First-of-its-Kind Storage Automation: Pure Fusion™ unifies arrays and optimizes storage pools on the fly across structured and unstructured data, on-premises, and in the cloud. Now fully embedded into the Purity operating environment designed to continually get better over time via non-disruptive upgrades, the next generation Pure Fusion will be available across the entire Pure Storage platform to all global customers.
  • Industry-First Generative AI Copilot for Storage: Extending Pure Storage’s leadership position as the innovator in simplicity, the first AI copilot for storage represents a radically new way to manage and protect data using natural language. This leverages data insights from tens of thousands of Pure Storage customers to guide storage teams through every step of investigating complex performance and management issues and staying ahead of security incidents.

Accelerating AI Success in the Enterprise with the Pure Storage Platform
In the new Innovation Race survey of 1,500 global CIOs and decision makers commissioned by Pure Storage, nearly all respondents (98%) state that their organization’s data infrastructure must improve to support initiatives like AI. AI is evolving so rapidly that IT is struggling to keep up, much less predict what’s next. Companies large and small are realizing that they are locked into inflexible storage architectures lacking enterprise-grade reliability, unable to resize or upgrade performance without complex and risky infrastructure planning.

Pure Storage is introducing new innovations in the platform that help businesses accelerate successful AI deployments today, and future proof for tomorrow. The Pure Storage platform empowers organizations to unlock the value of their data with AI, while delivering agility to instantly scale capacity and performance up and down independently, without disruption.

  • New Evergreen//One™ for AI – First Purpose-Built AI Storage as-a-Service: Provides guaranteed storage performance for GPUs to support training, inference, and HPC workloads, extending Pure Storage’s leadership position for capacity subscriptions and introduces the ability to purchase based on dynamic performance and throughput needs. The new SLA uniquely delivers the performance needed and eliminates the need for planning or overbuying by paying for throughput performance.
  • Secure Application Workspaces with Fine-Grained Access Controls: Combines Kubernetes container management, secure multi-tenancy, and policy governance tools to enable advanced data integrations between enterprise mission-critical data and AI clusters. This makes storage infrastructure transparent to application owners, who gain fully automated access to AI innovation without sacrificing security, independence, or control.

Pure to Expand and Accelerate Enterprise Adoption of AI with Planned NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD Certification

Pure Storage was among the first enterprise storage vendors to work with NVIDIA to achieve NVIDIA DGX BasePOD certification and NVIDIA OVX validation. Building upon this pioneering collaboration for AI-ready infrastructure, Pure expects to be a certified storage solution for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD by the end of 2024.

Pure Storage’s Ethernet-based storage solution simplifies the integration and deployment of large scale training and inference and helps democratize AI to enterprises that are eager to accelerate their AI initiatives. Pure’s industry-leading energy efficiency, consuming up to 85% less energy than alternative all-flash storage solutions, can help customers overcome data center power constraints in large AI clusters.

“Enterprises adopting AI need storage performance and flexibility as they architect their infrastructure to address AI workloads at scale. Pure Storage’s certification with the NVIDIA DGX and OVX platforms helps deliver highly-performant solutions for customers at every stage of their AI journey.”  – Charlie Boyle, Vice President of DGX Platform, NVIDIA

Customer Perspectives
“As more businesses rely on automation and AI to make near-real-time decisions, at ServiceNow we are committed to meeting their needs. That starts with 24/7 performance and reliability. We couldn’t have chosen a better partner than Pure Storage to scale with our rapid growth. Projects that take other companies three years, take only three months using Pure’s enterprise data storage platform. With Pure, we can do it faster and we can make the enhancements needed to fuel our customers’ success.” — Keith Martin, Vice President of Global Cloud Engineering, ServiceNow

“At Paylocity, data flexibility, precision, and automation are critical to empowering our customers to make strategic human capital decisions swiftly and accurately. We see incredible value in Pure Fusion to unlock both flexibility and self-service for our developers. Pure Fusion promises the true cloud operating model we need to innovate faster and more efficiently, and ultimately deliver valuable outcomes to our customers in the future.” — Dave Pinkawa, Engineering Manager – Virtualization, Paylocity

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Veritas Technologies, the leader in secure multi-cloud data management, today announced greater choice and flexibility for customers requiring data compliance solutions. Veritas Data Insight, which allows organizations to assess and mitigate unstructured and sensitive data compliance and cyber resilience risks, is now available in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) consumption model.

Dark data, which is data with unknown value, makes up roughly 52% of the average organization’s unstructured data estate. In addition to containing redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT) data that costs organizations millions of dollars in unnecessary storage, such data may also contain sensitive information posing significant regulatory compliance and cyber resilience risks.

Veritas Data Insight offers in-depth data visibility, context and analysis across multi-cloud infrastructures to help resolve the cost, compliance and security risks associated with unstructured, dark and sensitive data. It also plays a key role in helping organizations respond to cyberthreats such as ransomware by highlighting security weaknesses before an attack, providing early warning during an attack and ensuring decision makers are armed with important insights about the data that may have been compromised after an attack.

Now, organizations can consume Veritas Data Insight from the cloud as a multi-tenant, Veritas-managed SaaS application. This option enables simplified onboarding; automatic updates, including new content sources; and greater scalability.

Soniya Bopache, vice president and general manager of data compliance and governance at Veritas, said: “Most organizations have massive collections of data they know nothing about. These often contain sensitive data they’re not properly managing, valuable data they’re not using and ROT data they don’t need. Veritas Data Insight in the cloud helps resolve the challenges of unstructured, dark and sensitive data without adding more complexity to an organization’s technology stack.”

Additional enhancements in the latest release of Veritas Data Insight—both on-premises and in the cloud—are designed to increase the product’s performance across all its core data compliance, governance and cyber resilience functions. These performance enhancements include:

  • Efficiency – Data indexing now requires up to 50% less disk space.
  • Speed – Expedited data classification better focuses on content that is relevant.
  • Coverage – Improved indexing and targeted classification results in more comprehensive compliance.

Juan Orlandini, chief technology officer, North America at Insight Enterprises, said: “Veritas Data Insight is key to helping our clients gain critical knowledge about their data to identify security threats, address privacy compliance and enable lifecycle management. With SaaS deployment, more efficient indexing and faster classification, it becomes even more compelling.”

Veritas Data Insight is available as part of all three Veritas data compliance and governance service offerings—Information GovernanceeDiscovery and Surveillance—which make it easy for customers to find the right combination of Veritas capabilities to meet their specific needs. It can also be paired with Veritas NetBackup Flex Scale and Veritas Alta Recovery Vault to create the ultimate solution for cyber resilience with scale-out data protection, data and asset intelligence and SaaS-based data isolation.

About Veritas
Veritas Technologies is the leader in secure multi-cloud data management. More than 80,000 customers—including 91% of the Fortune 100—rely on Veritas to help ensure the protection, recoverability and compliance of their data. Veritas has a reputation for reliability at scale, which delivers the resilience its customers need against the disruptions threatened by cyberattacks, like ransomware. No other vendor is able to match Veritas’ ability to execute, with support for 800+ data sources, 100+ operating systems and 1,400+ storage targets through a single, unified approach.

NEW YORK, NY – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — In the digital age, where data serves as the cornerstone of both personal and professional domains, EaseUS, a leading provider of data recovery solutions, unveils its comprehensive report detailing the statistics of data recovery in 2024. Following an extensive six-month user survey involving millions of data points, the report offers invaluable insights into data loss occurrences, the devices that lost data, and the computers and systems that recovered data.

Data Loss Scenarios
The study categorizes 496,142 unique scenarios leading to data loss, highlighting that approximately 40% of cases stem from logical errors, totaling around 198,457 incidents. This category experiences the highest recovery rate. Conversely, 30% of data losses result from physical damage to hardware, necessitating specialized recovery services or preventive measures such as regular data backups.

Operating Systems for Data Recovery
With 635,372 instances analyzed, the report emphasizes the dominance of the latest Windows and macOS operating systems and their influence on data recovery product development. Given their widespread use and evolving distributions, it underscores the importance of software adaptability to these platforms.

User’s Computer Types
Among the 724,769 computers surveyed, the report identifies a clear focus on ensuring compatibility and optimization for Windows systems, alongside a dedicated effort to cater to MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models due to their significant market presence. It also acknowledges the necessity of accommodating legacy Apple devices to broaden accessibility.

Storage Device Types and Sizes
The shift toward Solid-State Drives (SSDs) is prominent among the 726,418 storage devices assessed, necessitating that recovery software optimizes for SSDs while maintaining support for traditional Hard Disk Drives (HDDs). This trend underscores the importance of versatility in handling all disk capacities, from smaller to larger storage units.

File Systems on Windows and macOS
Of the 764,477 file systems examined, NTFS dominates usage trends. However, exFAT has gained prominence as a cross-platform file-sharing solution, particularly for external hard drives. The report advocates for recovery software that proficiently handles NTFS, FAT32, and exFAT while integrating AI and machine learning to tackle unconventional or severely damaged file systems, including HFS+ and EXT series, to serve Apple and Linux users comprehensively.

Observations and Insights
These data studies carry significant implications for the data recovery industry, necessitating software developers to stay abreast of technological advancements and changing user habits. The report advocates for solutions that not only cater to the prevalent use of SSDs and the continued relevance of legacy HDDs but also embrace the cloud backup market, projected to reach $199 billion by 2027. By addressing these shifts, developers can ensure they remain competitive and effectively serve users facing various data loss challenges.

The collaboration enables consumers to purchase recertified drives through an established retail platform

FREMONT, CA – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a leading innovator of mass-capacity data storage, announced its sustainability collaboration with e-commerce site eBay. The agreement establishes Seagate’s official storefront on eBay as a direct channel for consumers to access factory-recertified hard drives as part of the Seagate Circularity Program.

As a founding member of the Circular Drive Initiative—a partnership of global leaders in digital storage, data centers, sustainability, and blockchain collaborating to reduce e-waste—Seagate is committed to enabling the secure reuse of storage devices and reducing hard drive shredding. Hard drive shredding entails breaking down a hard drive into tiny pieces so that data cannot be recovered. As rare earth materials contained in those parts cannot be reused, hard drive shredding harms the environment and is not a sustainable practice.

Since data control remains the biggest obstacle to embracing hard drive circularity, Seagate brings a trusted level of data sanitization and comprehensive erasure to its factory-recertified drives. The sanitization and erasure practices prevent data recovery after decommissioning, adhering to industry standards such as IEEE 2883, NIST SP 800-88 Rev. 1, and ISO/IEC 27040:2015.

“Tens of millions of hard drives are still being shredded yearly, and we need to reduce the use of destructive sanitization methods,” said Jason Feist, Seagate’s SVP, Products and Markets. “Seagate builds circularity into the drives we bring to market. The collaboration with eBay will increase the amount of data that can be stored on top quality, recertified hard drives.”

In FY2023, Seagate extended the life of approximately 1.19 million hard drives and solid-state drives through its circularity program, preventing 553 metric tons of e-waste1. Seagate aims to minimize e-waste by placing quality hard drives back into service and extending their product lifecycles.

“eBay is proud to work with Seagate on this exciting partnership,” said Renée Morin, eBay’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “Refurbishing items gives them a longer life and generally reduces greenhouse gas emissions. In our efforts to be a responsible, sustainable marketplace, this collaboration shows that we all have a part to play.”

The new Seagate storefront on eBay offers various hard drive options that can be trusted because they are recertified by Seagate and come with a limited warranty. Seagate’s factory-recertified drives can now be purchased directly through www.ebay.com/str/stxrecerthdd

1 – Assuming each drive is an average weight of 465g

New Barracuda report shows how targeted email threats are evolving in the age of GenAI

Highlights:

  • Barracuda’s Email Threats and Trends report, volume 1, shows that more advanced and targeted email-based threats are increasing year on year.
  • Business email compromise now accounts for 10.6% of social engineering attacks.
    Conversation hijacking has risen by 70% since 2022.
  • Attackers are leveraging QR codes, popular webmail services, and URL shorteners.

CAMPBELL, Calif., June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today published Email Threats and Trends, Vol. 1, which shows that over the last 12 months business email compromise attacks have increased to account for 10.6% of email-based social engineering. Conversation hijacking has risen by 70% since 2022, despite being a resource-intensive approach for attackers.

Barracuda researchers analyzed 69 million attacks across 4.5 million mailboxes over a year. The results reveal how cybercriminals are adapting their tactics and taking advantage of the ways generative AI can help them scale their attacks, bypass traditional security measures, and target and trick potential victims.

The findings show that:

  • Business email compromise (BEC) attacks made up more than 1 in 10 of all social engineering attacks in 2023, and the numbers show a steady increase over time. BEC attacks accounted for 8% in 2022 and 9% in 2021.
  • Conversation hijacking made up 0.5% of the social engineering attacks in the past year, an increase of almost 70%  compared to 0.3% in 2022. Conversation hijacking attacks require a lot of effort to execute, but the payouts can be significant.
  • Around 1 in 20 mailboxes were targeted with QR code attacks in the last quarter of 2023. QR code attacks are difficult to detect using traditional email filtering methods. They also take victims away from corporate machines and force them to use a personal device, such as a phone or iPad, which isn’t protected by corporate security software.
  • Gmail was the most popular free webmail service used for social engineering. In 2023, Gmail accounted for 22% of the domains used for social engineering attacks, according to Barracuda’s data. Just over half the detected Gmail attacks were used for BEC attacks.
  • bit.ly was used in nearly 40% of social engineering attacks that include a shortened URL. URL shorteners condense the link, so the actual link of the site becomes obscured with random letters or numbers. Using this tactic can disguise the true nature and destination of the link.

“IT and security professionals need to stay focused on the evolution of email threats and what this means for security measures and incident response,” said Sheila Hara, Sr. Director of Product Management at Barracuda. “This involves understanding how attackers can leverage generative AI to advance and scale their activities, and the latest tactics they’re using to make it past security controls. The best defense is AI-powered cloud email security technology that can adapt quickly to a changing landscape and doesn’t solely rely on looking for malicious links or attachments.”

NEW YORK, NY – June 14, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — EaseUS Todo Backup, a leading provider of data backup and recovery solutions, released its latest version on May 29, 2024. This new version mainly provides enhanced support for APP Backup. Compared with the previous permission to back up only specific game archives (GTA V, Hogwart Legacy, The Sim 4, COD 2) and some APPs like Outlook and Chrome, this update supports all game-save backups, ensuring gamers never lose their favorite games again.

With the rise of digital games and cloud-based gaming platforms, players are paying more attention to game archives and backups while experiencing a more enriched game world. Game saves are essential to keep the game process going so that they can continue from the last left out.

However, according to incomplete statistics, 80% of gamers have suffered from game saves being lost or overwritten by mistake, which causes a great loss of players’ time and energy.

Although cloud saving is now available on every platform, it often encounters various problems causing data loss, and different games have different levels of support for it. So many users choose to turn it off and seek help from other sources.

This update of EaseUS Todo Backup is precisely due to gamers’ urgent need for game data backup. As long as users download and install the game on their computers, the software can automatically locate and extract the game save location and create game backups with simple clicks, including game saves, settings, configurations, etc.

“I am excited to introduce this awesome feature to our users,” said Hongyu He, Product Manager of EaseUS Todo Backup, also a gaming enthusiast, “I deeply understand how important game saves are to our users as one of the game lovers, and I want to ensure that they have the tools in hand to protect their gaming data. With the enhanced APP backup features, users can back up all their games safely and easily.”

This breathtaking update of EaseUS Todo Backup also includes some other highlights to make it the top choice of gamers.

  • Multiple backup locations: Users can store game backups on various media, such as local drives, external disks, the cloud, and NAS.
  • Scheduled backup option: This backup tool allows you to set a scheduled backup plan, like hourly, daily, or weekly, which will automatically save game data, eliminating the hassle of manual operation after each game is over.
  • Incremental and compressed backup: Most Steam games take up a lot of storage space. These two functions can effectively avoid duplicate data storage and save a lot of space.
  • Quick backup and restore speed: This new version also improves the backup and restore speed, allowing players not to spend a long time backing up and restoring their games.

“We will constantly strive to improve our products and provide our users with a better experience. I am confident that the game saves backup feature will benefit PC gamers greatly and bring them a more convenient gaming experience.” PM, Hongyu He added.

EaseUS Todo Backup is a powerful backup and restore software that is dedicated to offering users a safer and easier data backup solution. Download and install EaseUS Todo Backup to safeguard your game saves with ease and peace of mind.

Cloud backup innovator and cyber insurance company close gaps in business continuity planning by adding Backblaze Computer Backup to the Coalition Control® cyber risk management platform

SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 13, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Backblaze, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLZE), the cloud storage innovator providing a modern alternative to traditional cloud providers, today announced a new partnership with Active Cyber Insurance provider Coalition to help businesses proactively reduce their cyber risk. The partnership provides Coalition’s customers with direct access to Backblaze Computer Backup, an enterprise-grade, unlimited, and automatic endpoint backup solution, via the Coalition Control® cyber risk management platform.

Many businesses have gaps in their cyber security posture that disqualify them from cyber insurance coverage, especially when it comes to immutable, off-site backups. With ransomware continuing to rise over 15% (FY ’22 to FY ’23) and the average ransomware demand increasing to nearly $1.4m, cyber insurance has become increasingly important for risk mitigation. Businesses of all sizes need access to reliable backups to gain adequate coverage and better secure their most valuable data.

“Adding Backblaze’s industry-leading cloud backup as the recommended backup solution in Coalition Control will help our customers improve their business continuity plans and cyber incident remediation through reliable data backups,” said John Roberts, General Manager, Security, at Coalition. “Backblaze’s accessible solution delivers businesses a win-win with increased compliance and enhanced incident preparedness.”

Backblaze Computer Backup combines simplicity—including preconfigured installers for faster “time to security,” backing up all user data by default, and predictable pricing for unlimited capacity—with available enterprise administration features that businesses need to protect business-critical data across hundreds or thousands of workstations—including fine-grained access controls, OIDC authentication support tools like for Azure AD and Okta, and advanced backup lockdown and recovery settings.

“Partnering with Coalition means we can take another step forward in making data protection and disaster recovery accessible to businesses of any size,” said Elton Carneiro, Senior Director, Partnerships, at Backblaze. “We are excited to work with experts in cyber insurance to play our part in bolstering protection against threats and shoring up compliance.”

Coalition supplies policyholders in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom with access to industry-leading cyber security tools through its cyber risk management platform, Coalition Control®. Insurance products offered by Coalition help over 80,000 customers face rapidly evolving digital risk with comprehensive cyber insurance coverage.

Dynamic workflows designed by Tyrell will support major commissions

Boston, MA – 12 June 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — EditShare, the technology leader that enables storytellers to create and manage collaborative workflows at every stage from storyboard to screen, has implemented another EFS storage network at leading UK entertainment production company Whisper. The system was designed and implemented in conjunction with EditShare’s partner Tyrell.

Whisper is highly regarded for its sports, live and entertainment coverage, including some of the largest events globally. Having recently secured commissions for multiple new documentary series, it has added an extensive new storage network and access facilities.

“We already have two EditShare storage nodes that we rely on, and which have proven extremely reliable over a number of years,” said Gareth Steven, head of post production at Whisper. “This new project calls for content to be created and managed over an extended period of time, with large production teams accessing and editing the content simultaneously. EditShare and Tyrell showed us that the scalability and workflow functionality met our requirements perfectly.”

The new installation sees three EditShare EFS-300 storage systems, each with 256 TB capacity, which are seen by users as a single namespace for simplicity and security in operation. The storage network is freely and continuously expandable to provide capacities exceeding a petabyte if required.

“Content security was also a key requirement for Whisper,” said Simon Wocka, account manager at Tyrell. “Media storage is like a bank vault: the assets it contains are priceless and must be protected above all else. Security is a core part of the EditShare architecture, providing the best protection at every stage without compromising operational ease and flexibility.

“EditShare also allows access directly within the key post tools that will be used on these shows,” he continued. “Artists using Adobe Premiere Pro or Blackmagic DaVinci can use EditShare integrations within their software environment, allowing them to access content directly. They don’t need to change workstations or learn new commands and structures – it removes barriers and makes workflows much simpler.”

Tara Montfort, co-founder and EVP Business Development at EditShare, added, “We are delighted to support Whisper’s new projects. Our scalable storage solutions and intuitive workflow tools are designed to meet the complex needs of production teams, ensuring they can collaborate seamlessly and focus on what they do best – creating compelling content.”

The new storage network was installed in February 2024 and is already supporting the latest documentary productions at Whisper.

Acronis XDR delivers complete, natively integrated, and highly efficient cybersecurity built for MSPs

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – June 12, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Acronis, a global leader in cybersecurity and data protection, is pleased to introduce Acronis Advanced Security + XDR the newest addition to the company’s security solution portfolio. Easy to deploy, manage, and maintain, Acronis XDR expands on the current endpoint detection and response (EDR) offering and delivers complete natively integrated, highly efficient cybersecurity with data protection, endpoint management, and automated recovery specifically built for managed service providers (MSPs).

Acronis
New Acronis Advanced Security + Extended Detection and Response (XDR) Solution

Cyberattacks have become increasingly sophisticated due to cybercriminals deploying AI and attack surfaces expanding, allowing businesses to be more vulnerable to data breaches and malware. To protect their customers, MSPs who offer security services commonly only have a choice of complex tools with insufficient, incomplete protection that are expensive and time-consuming to deploy and maintain. As a direct response to these challenges, Acronis XDR is the solution providing complete protection without high costs and added complexit.

“Acronis makes a compelling entrance into XDR,” notes Chris Kissel, Research Vice-President at IDC. “Acronis has provided an endpoint protection platform for the better part of a year. They have extended their XDR stack mapping alerts to MITRE ATTACK and offer cloud correlation detections. Importantly, their platform supports multitenancy, and the dashboard provides intuitive visualiza

Key features and benefits of Acronis XDR include:

  • Native integration across cybersecurity, data protection, and endpoint management. The product is designed to protect vulnerable attack surfaces enabling unmatched business continuity.
  • High efficiency, with the ability to easily launch, manage, scale, and deliver security services. It also includes AI-based incident analysis and single-click response for swift investigation and response.
  • Built for MSPs, including a single agent and console for all services, and a customizable platform to integrate additional tools into a unified technology stack.

Acronis

“It is imperative that MSPs provide reliable cybersecurity to customers with diverse IT environments and constrained budgets,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, President at Acronis. “Acronis XDR enables MSPs to offer top-notch security without the complexity and significant overhead of traditional non-integrated tools. This is achieved in several ways, including AI-assisted capabilities within the Acronis solution that helps MSPs provide the utmost cybersecurity – even if an MSP only has limited cybersecurity expertise.”

Earlier this year, the company released Acronis MDR powered by Novacoast, a simple, effective, and advanced endpoint security service built for MSPs with native integration of data protection to deliver unmatched business resilience. Acronis MDR is a service offering used with the Acronis EDR solution focused on endpoint protection platform (EPP) to provide passive endpoint protection. The addition of Acronis MDR amplifies MSP’s security capabilities without the need for large security resources or added investments.

The introduction of Acronis MDR and XDR follows a string of security-related offerings and solutions from Acronis, building on the company’s EDR offering released in May 2023. Acronis security solutions leverage AI-based innovations and native integrations, which lower complexity and provide complete security in the easiest and most efficient way. With a comprehensive security portfolio from Acronis, MSPs can now offer complete cybersecurity to their customers and scale operations to grow their business.

Additional information on Rubrik’s reported results, including a reconciliation of the non-GAAP results to their most comparable GAAP measures, is included in the financial tables below. A reconciliation of non-GAAP guidance measures to corresponding GAAP measures is not available on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the uncertainty of expenses that may be incurred in the future, although it is important to note that these factors could be material to Rubrik’s results computed in accordance with GAAP. For example, stock-based compensation-related charges, including employer payroll tax-related items on employee stock transactions, are impacted by the timing of employee stock transactions, the future fair market value of Rubrik’s Class A common stock, and Rubrik’s future hiring and retention needs, all of which are difficult to predict and subject to constant change.

Conference Call Information

Rubrik will host a conference call to discuss results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2025, as well as its financial outlook for the fiscal second quarter and fiscal year 2025 today at 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time / 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Open to the public, analysts and investors may access the webcast, results press release, and investor presentation on Rubrik’s investor relations website at https://ir.rubrik.com. A replay of the webcast will also be accessible from Rubrik’s investor relations website a few hours after the conclusion of the live event.

Rubrik uses its investor relations website and may use its social media accounts including X (formerly Twitter) (@rubrikInc and @bipulsinha) and LinkedIn (www.linkedin.com/company/rubrik-inc and www.linkedin.com/in/bipulsinha) as a means of disclosing material non-public information and for complying with its disclosure obligations under Regulation FD.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release and the related conference call contain express and implied “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding Rubrik’s financial outlook for the second quarter of fiscal year 2025 and full fiscal year 2025, Rubrik’s market position, market opportunities, and growth strategy, product initiatives, go-to-market motions and market trends. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terms such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “project,” “will,” “would,” “should,” “could,” “can,” “predict,” “potential,” “target,” “explore,” “continue,”, “outlook,” “guidance,” or the negative of these terms, where applicable, and similar expressions intended to identify forward-looking statements. By their nature, these statements are subject to numerous uncertainties and risks, including factors beyond Rubrik’s control, that could cause actual results, performance or achievement to differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied in the statements. Risks include but are not limited to Rubrik’s limited operating history, the growth rate of the market in which Rubrik competes, Rubrik’s ability to effectively manage and sustain its growth, Rubrik’s ability to introduce new products on top of its platform, Rubrik’s ability to compete with existing competitors and new market entrants, Rubrik’s ability to expand internationally and its ability to utilize AI successfully in its current and future products. Additional risks and uncertainties that could cause actual outcomes and results to differ materially from those contemplated by the forward-looking statements are included under the caption “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in our most recent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including Rubrik’s final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b), dated April 24, 2024. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date the statements are made and are based on information available to Rubrik at the time those statements are made and/or management’s good faith belief as of that time with respect to future events. Rubrik assumes no obligation to update forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date they were made, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Rubrik has provided in this press release financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Rubrik uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally in analyzing its financial results and believes that use of these non-GAAP financial measures is useful to investors as an additional tool to evaluate ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing Rubrik’s financial results with other companies in its industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP financial measures and should be read only in conjunction with Rubrik’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of Rubrik’s historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this press release, and investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation.

Free Cash Flow. Rubrik defines free cash flow as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities less cash used for purchases of property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software. Rubrik believes free cash flow is a helpful indicator of liquidity that provides information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated or used by Rubrik’s operations that, after the investments in property and equipment and capitalized internal-use software, can be used for strategic initiatives, including investing in Rubrik’s business and strengthening its financial position. One limitation of free cash flow is that it does not reflect Rubrik’s future contractual commitments. Additionally, free cash flow is not a substitute for cash used in operating activities and the utility of free cash flow as a measure of Rubrik’s liquidity is further limited as it does not represent the total increase or decrease in Rubrik’s cash balance for a given period.

Non-GAAP Subscription Cost of Revenue. Rubrik defines non-GAAP subscription cost of revenue as subscription cost of revenue, adjusted for amortization of acquired intangibles, stock-based compensation expense, and stock-based compensation from amortization of capitalized internal-use software.

Non-GAAP Operating Expenses (Research and Development, Sales and Marketing, General and Administrative). Rubrik defines non-GAAP operating expenses as operating expenses (research and development, sales and marketing, general and administrative), adjusted for, as applicable, stock-based compensation expense.

Subscription Annual Recurring Revenue (“ARR”) Contribution Margin. Rubrik defines Subscription ARR Contribution Margin as Subscription ARR contribution divided by Subscription ARR at the end of the period. Rubrik defines Subscription ARR Contribution as Subscription ARR at the end of the period less: (i) non-GAAP subscription cost of revenue and (ii) non-GAAP operating expenses for the prior 12-month period ending on that date. Rubrik believes that Subscription ARR Contribution Margin is a helpful indicator of operating leverage. One limitation of Subscription ARR Contribution Margin is that the factors that impact Subscription ARR will vary from those that impact subscription revenue and, as such, may not provide an accurate indication of Rubrik’s actual or future GAAP results. Additionally, the historical expenses in this calculation may not accurately reflect the costs associated with future commitments.

Key Business Metrics

Subscription ARR. Rubrik calculates Subscription ARR as the annualized value of our active subscription contracts as of the measurement date, assuming any contract that expires during the next 12 months is renewed on existing terms. Subscription contracts include cloud-based contracts for Rubrik’s subscription offerings and products sold on top of its Rubrik Security Cloud (“RSC”) platform, prior sales of CDM sold as a subscription term-based license with associated support, and standalone sales of Rubrik’s SaaS subscription products like Anomaly Detection (previously known as Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation) and Sensitive Data Monitoring (previously known as Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management).

Cloud ARR. Rubrik calculates Cloud ARR as the annualized value of its active cloud-based subscription contracts as of the measurement date, based on Rubrik’s customers’ total contract value and, assuming any contract that expires during the next 12 months is renewed on existing terms. Rubrik’s cloud-based subscription contracts include RSC and RSC-Government (excluding RSC-Private) and SaaS subscription products like Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation (now known as Anomaly Detection) and Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management (now known as Sensitive Data Monitoring).

Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate. Rubrik calculates Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate by first identifying subscription customers (“Prior Period Subscription Customers”) which were subscription customers at the end of a particular quarter (the “Prior Period”). Rubrik then calculates the Subscription ARR from these Prior Period Subscription Customers at the end of the same quarter of the subsequent year (the “Current Period”). This calculation captures upsells, contraction, and attrition since the Prior Period. Rubrik then divides total Current Period Subscription ARR by the total Prior Period Subscription ARR for Prior Period Subscription Customers. Rubrik’s Average Subscription Dollar-Based Net Retention Rate in a particular quarter is obtained by averaging the result from that particular quarter with the corresponding results from each of the prior three quarters.

Customers with $100K or More in Subscription ARR. Customers with $100K or more in Subscription ARR represent the number of customers that contributed $100,000 or more in Subscription ARR as of period end.

Data-centric organizations in healthcare, financial, and travel services trust Scality RING as the foundation for AI-powered data lakes

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – June 11, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Scality, a global leader in cyber-resilient storage for the AI era, today announced a large-scale deployment of its RING distributed file and object storage solution to optimize and accelerate the data lifecycle for high-throughput genomics sequencing laboratory SeqOIA Médecine Génomique. This is the most recent in a series of deployments where RING is leveraged as a foundational analytics and AI data lake repository for organizations in healthcare, financial services and travel services across the globe.

Selected as part of the France Médecine Génomique 2025 (French Genomic Medicine Plan), SeqOIA is one of two national laboratories integrating whole genome sequencing into the French healthcare system to benefit patients with rare diseases and cancer.

SeqOIA adopted Scality RING to aggregate petabyte-scale genetics data used to better characterize pathologies as well as guide genetic counseling and patient treatment. RING grants SeqOIA biologists efficient access from thousands of compute nodes to nearly 10 petabytes of data throughout its lifecycle, spanning from lab data to processed data, at accelerated speeds and a cost 3-5 times lower than that of all-flash file storage.

“RING is the repository for 90% of our genomics data pipeline, and we see a need for continued growth on it for years to come,” said Alban Lermine, IS and Bioinformatics Director of SeqOIA, “In collaboration with Scality, we have solved our analytics processing needs through a two-tier storage solution, with all-flash access of temporary hot data sets and long-term persistent storage in RING. We trust RING to protect the petabytes of mission-critical data that enable us to carry out our mission of improving care for patients suffering from cancer and other diseases.”

Scality RING powers AI data lakes for other data-intensive industries:
Customers report 59% lower TCO, 366% 5-year ROI and 34% more productive end users.

National insurance provider:
Scality RING powers AI-driven analytics for claim processing

One of the largest publicly held personal line insurance providers in the United States chose RING as the preferred AI-data lake repository for insurance analytics claim processing. The provider chose RING to replace its HDFS (Hadoop File System).

The customer has realized 3X improved space efficiency and cost savings, with higher availability through a multi-site RING deployment to support site failover.

Global travel services:
1 petabyte a day to power the world’s travel

A multinational IT services company whose technology fuels the global travel and tourism industry uses Scality RING to power its core data lake. RING supports one petabyte of new log data ingested each day to maintain a 14-day rotating data lake. This requires RING to purge (delete) the oldest petabyte each day, while simultaneously supporting 10s of gigabytes per second (GB/s) read access for analysis from a cluster of Splunk indexers.

For data lake deployments, these organizations require trusted and proven solutions with a long-term track record of delivering performance and data protection at petabyte-scale. For AI workload processing, they pair RING repositories in an intelligent tiered manner with all-flash file systems as well as leading AI tools and analytics applications, including Weka.io, HPE Pachyderm, Cribl, Cloudera, Splunk, Elastic, Dremio, Starburst and more. With strategic partners like HPE and HPE GreenLake, Scality can deliver managed AI data lakes. Learn more about how to unlock the full value of data wherever it lives at www.hpe.com

Trusted and proven for AI-powered data lakes at petabyte-scale
Fast data processing is a no-brainer for any AI deployment, but to support world-class, petabyte-scale infrastructures, RING is the only solution that can give customers:

  • Cost savings with 366% five-year ROI
  • Best price/performance through optimal use of flash and HDD
  • Peace of mind with CORE5 end-to-end cyber-resiliency

“Selecting RING was the best decision for us at SeqOIA. RING provides the complete package of features for AI-powered data lakes,” said Alban Lermine. “RING is the most secure, scalable and cost-effective repository for petabyte-scale unstructured data on the market. We can collect, pre-process and analyze data from multiple data sources at dozens of GB/s.”

RING S3 object storage for AI is unmatched with support for:

  • Retrieval-augmented generation (RAG) access from retrieval- and generative-based artificial intelligence models.
  • Integrated hybrid-cloud capabilities that enable RING to replicate and tier data to external public cloud services for integration with popular AI tools in AWS, Azure and Google.
  • Support for the customer’s choice of hybrid or all-flash storage servers.
  • CORE5 end-to-end cyber-resiliency capabilities to provide ransomware protection.

The combination of capabilities provides customers with a trusted data lake storage solution across multiple stages of the pipeline from data collection, cleansing, analysis, model development and training. RING provides organizations with high-performance and unbreakable data storage at an economic price point to enable 10s to 100s of petabytes for long-term AI data.

New offering empowers sports media teams, live news and event producers to edit and share highlights while raw files are still uploading, speeding engagement and revenue

SAN MATEO, Calif. – June 06, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Backblaze, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLZE), the leading specialized storage cloud, today announced the launch of Backblaze B2 Live Read. The offering gives customers, particularly media production teams working on live events, the ability to access, edit, and transform content while it is still being uploaded into B2 Cloud Storage, resulting in significantly faster and more efficient workflows.

This patent-pending innovation is a brand new type of service in cloud workflows, replacing cost prohibitive and complicated options that often required on-premises storage. Leading media and entertainment (M&E) production solution providers including Telestream, Glookast, and Mimir have already committed to integrating the service.

“For our customers, turnaround time is essential, and Live Read promises to speed up workflows and operations for producers across the industry,” said Richard Andes, VP, Product Management at Telestream. “We’re incredibly excited to offer this innovative feature to boost performance and accelerate our customer’s business engagements.”

Gone are the days when media teams could wait hours or days for uploads to complete to access and start editing video. Fans and followers want new content instantly, and giving it to them fast grows engagement and revenue. Live Read is positioned to revolutionize a range of live media use cases, including:

  • Creating near real-time highlight clips for broadcasters’ news segments, sports teams’ in app replays, and much more
  • Empowering best-of-breed talent for any production by reducing on-set staff requirements
  • Promoting content for on-demand sales within minutes of presentations at live events
  • Distributing teasers for buzz on social media before talent has even left the venue

This B2 Cloud Storage service is designed to be easily accessible directly via S3 compatible API and/or seamlessly within the user interface of media software partners. Along with the launch partners mentioned above, CineDeck, Alteon, Hedge, Hiscale, and MoovIT also intend to integrate Live Read–consistent with Backblaze’s commitment to help organizations do more in an open cloud environment.

“Backblaze’s Live Read is a game changer for helping organizations deliver media to their audiences dramatically faster,” said Steinar Søreide, CTO at Mimir. “Adding this offering to our platform unlocks a whole new level of impact for our user community.”

Live Read uniquely supports accessing parts of each growing object or growing file as it uploads so there’s no need to wait for the full file upload to complete. This is a major workflow accelerator especially when organizations are shooting for 4K to 8K resolutions and beyond. And when the full upload is complete, it’s accessible like any other file or object in their Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage bucket, with no middleware or proprietary software needed.

“When working in media collaboration and production environments, speed is essential,” said Felipe Santos, Head of Technology at Glookast. “Backblaze’s Live Read opens new levels of performance and capabilities for our users.”

Beyond media, the API supports breakthrough new development and IT workloads. For example, organizations maintaining large data logs or surveillance footage backups have often had to parse them into hundreds or thousands of small files each day in order to have quick access when needed–but with Live Read, they can now move to far more manageable single files per day or hour while preserving ability to access parts within seconds of them having been written.

“Backblaze has developed one of most durable, affordable, and performant storage clouds,” said Gleb Budman, Backblaze CEO and Chairperson of the Board. “Live Read is another example of the powerful innovation we’re delivering to support our customers and partners to do more with their data.”

Live Read is available in private preview now with general availability planned later this year. Organizations can learn more and sign up for the Live Read private preview on the Backblaze Blog.
