TORONTO, ON – May 27, 2020 – /BackupReview.info/ – Asigra Inc., a leader in backup and recovery software that delivers comprehensive repository cyber protection, today highlighted a number of best practices proposed by providers of both preventative and responsive solutions for combating the financial ramifications of ransomware.

“Ransomware attacks are becoming more targeted, sophisticated, and costly, even as the overall frequency of attacks remains consistent,” according to a bulletin released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. “Cyber criminals can take advantage of security weaknesses in widely used software programs to gain control of victim systems and deploy ransomware. For example, recently exploited vulnerabilities were discovered in two remote management tools used by managed service providers (MSPs) to deploy ransomware on the networks of customers of at least three MSPs.”[1]

Industry experts often cite two categories of ransomware defensive approaches and solutions – preventative and responsive. Preventative strategies stop such attacks from succeeding in a way that would maintain business access to their data. Strategies in this area would include training employees about the proper handling of potential phishing emails, implementing the proper cybersecurity software to protect primary data and a second layer of security-enabled data protection on secondary storage to ensure the complete recovery of criminally encrypted data.

Responsive ransomware strategies include ransomware recovery experts (CYPFER Corp. for example) to minimize downtime and potential financial loss in the event an attack was successful. These measures also include a managed service provider to assist in finding all possible alternatives to return mission critical data to the customer. Additionally, it would also include a credible cyber-insurance provider at the company’s disposal to financially cover the event and address monetary damages.

Five best practices cited by experts in these areas include:

  1. Cultivate a security-aware culture: Educate and train employees on the dangers of phishing emails. Phishing is the number one method used by ransomware attackers because it is an effective means to access a target’s network.
  2. Backup files and protect backup data: Regularly back up data using a 3-2-2 methodology where three copies of data are stored locally on secondary storage; two additional copies of backup data are kept on different locally available mediums (devices); and two backup copies are stored offsite two remote locations, such as a remote facility or cloud-based platform. In the event the training and primary cybersecurity measures fail, ensure the backup data is protected as it will become the recovery technique of last resort should the network be impacted. This is effectively done with a backup solution that addresses ransomware Attack Loops™ by scanning for malware instream and as recovered data is returned to production, among other techniques.
  3. Secure the network environment: Keep programs and operating systems up to date, ensure servers are patched and updated, and securely restrict and limit system components and administration tools by granting users enough access or privileges to accomplish a task or run an application.
  4. Defend primary data: While there are an endless number of cybersecurity solutions available, choose solutions with an effective record of success and deploy accordingly to protect both traditional and remote workforce environments.
  5. Insure: Some ransomware payments have been reported to be in the millions. Organizations that have no other option but to pay the ransom, would be remedied by having a cyber insurance policy that covers the damage from such attacks. Having a policy that protects against such attacks and the resulting liability could mean the difference between continuing with operations or claiming bankruptcy.

Ransomware Response and Recovery
Should devices on a company network unfortunately fall victim to cyber attackers and it is critical that data be recovered, ensure that a ransomware recovery expert is part of the incident response team to negotiate the ransom demand with the threat actors and to try to reduce the financial impact. To mitigate the risk, the incident response team should investigate all the alternatives, such as recovering from back-ups, rebuilding server environments and deploying free decryption tools, or negotiating with the threat actors.

As a last resort, a company can direct the ransomware recovery expert to coordinate and direct the most suitable response to the specific threat, and if the decision is made to pay the ransom, negotiate and facilitate the ransom settlement on the victim’s behalf and procure the decryption tools required to restore data files.

“Paying ransom to cyber threat actors is not recommended, but sometimes it is a necessary response to ensure business continuity,” said Jason Kotler, Founder and President, CYPFER Corp. “In these cases, it is essential to negotiate and facilitate payment of the ransom in the proper cryptocurrency and to ensure that your data is unlocked, so that business services can resume as soon as possible.”

“The financial impact that ransomware can have on any organization is frequently devastating,” said Marc Staimer, Principal Analyst and President of Dragon Slayer Consulting. “If not properly prepared, damages can go beyond the payment of an exorbitant ransom which does not guarantee the de-encryption of data. It often also includes the loss of revenues from downtime, expensive third-party data recovery attempts, increases in future insurance costs, and reputational damage.”

“These time-sensitive events need to be addressed quickly. Whether for pre-attack preparation or post-attack emergency support, it is critical to have industry experts available,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “To provide some level of assurance, the five best practices and the experts referenced will provide the best chance of making it through one of these events.”

TORONTO, ON – May 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — GlobeX Data Ltd. (SWISF)(SWIS.CN) (“GlobeX” or the “Company”), the leader in Swiss hosted cyber security and Internet privacy solutions for secure data management and secure communications, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter Of Intent with a conglomerate representing more than 2000 cybersecurity resellers in Mexico, Colombia, Panama, Peru and Guatemala to sell all of the Company’s cybersecurity, data recovery and secure communications services, DigitalSafe, PrivaTalk, PrivaTalk Messenger and Custodia. The parent company of the conglomerate is based in Madrid, Spain and the Company is also working on getting the Spanish firm on board for all its 1000 resellers in Spain.

Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “We are very pleased with our discussions with this partner, representing over 2,000 cybersecurity resellers throughout Latin and Central America. Cybersecurity is gaining importance due to the vast cyber-attacks and the fact that post COVID-19, the world will embrace a higher degree of remote work locations. This in turn encourages hackers to attack all mobile devices, especially ones that are not securely connected through public wifi hotspots. With this distribution, we can target all of Latin and Central America, as this is also a hot spot for cyber-attacks. We are looking forward to formalize this agreement in the next month or so and start training the first resellers in June or July of this year.”

According to a study by lookingglasscyber.com, Latin America is vulnerable to hostile cyber activity, especially as the region develops economically and technologically. As the region’s economies become more technically adept, cyber security practices are currently failing to keep up with advancements in digitization. Cybercrime, cyber espionage, and hacktivism have all targeted Latin America.

According to cybersecurity-insiders.com, Colombia is on the list of top 5 countries most hit by cyber espionage and Mexico is on the list of the top 6 hit by malware infection.

According to Insighcrime.org, online scams, ransomware attacks and phishing email schemes have proliferated in Latin America amid the coronavirus pandemic, exposing the dangers hackers pose to people, banks and governments. If the past is any indication, Latin America is largely unprepared for this new wave of cybercrime.

Three adware-carrying apps found in last three months

Woburn, MA – May 22, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — According to analysis identified by Kaspersky Fraud Prevention, last year, two percent of transactions in e-banking and online retail were carried out by fraudsters, and 16% of transactions were suspicious and required further investigation. The most common malicious activity found was the use of malware or remote access tools. Specific to e-commerce, fraudsters often leveraged tools that automatically perform programmed actions.

Digital financial services and e-commerce simplify people’s lives, allowing them to order goods or manage their finances wherever it is convenient for them. Moreover, with the ongoing coronavirus lockdown measures in place, the importance of online services has grown even more. With many people heavily relying on these services, the Kaspersky Fraud Prevention report has revealed why it is so important to protect these types of businesses from fraudsters.

According to anonymized statistics of events detected by Kaspersky’s anti-fraud solution from January to December 2019, the most common case of fraud (63%) was attempts to access personal accounts using malware or legitimate remote control software. These tools, such as AnyDesk, TeamViewer, AirDroid and AhMyth, are intended for remote working and troubleshooting. Cybercriminals can impersonate someone from a banking service’s support team and ask the intended victim to install of the aforementioned applications. That way, they obtain access to victims’ devices, allowing them to reveal the user’s pin, one-time password, withdraw money or even submit loan applications.

Misuse of remote control software is followed by occasions when fraudsters takeover their victim’s account, or incidents when attackers use a legitimate user’s compromised credentials to steal money or loyalty program bonuses. This was used in 34% of detected incidents.

Fraud not only affects the financial sector, but online retail as well. As for the specific schemes in e-commerce, 44% of all cases involved the creation of fake accounts. By signing up for multiple registrations in retail loyalty programs, criminals receive welcome bonus points which they go on to sell at a discount. As creating a large number of accounts manually is a time consuming endeavor, fraudsters often use bots or special tools programmed to perform the required actions automatically.

“It can be difficult to detect fraudsters as they often use legitimate tools and are good at mimicking genuine user behavior,” said Claire Hatcher, head of business development for Kaspersky Fraud Prevention. “For example, remote access tools are not always malicious, so they will not be detected by an anti-virus solution. There is also nothing wrong with registering a new account in a loyalty program, however, it is suspicious when a large number of users come from a single IP address or have similar mouse tracings. That is why we continually examine how fraudulent schemes are evolving in order to optimize our solution.”

To stay protected from ever-changing fraud techniques, Kaspersky recommends financial services and retailers adopt the following measures:

  • Limit the number of attempts to conduct a transaction. Cybercriminals may try several times to enter correct credentials or card numbers.
  • Educate your customers on possible tricks malefactors may use. Regularly send them information on how to identify fraud and behave in this situation.
  • Conduct annual security audits and penetration tests to find security issues in a company’s network.
  • Have a dedicated fraud analysis team capable of finding and analyzing the emerging methods fraudsters are using.
  • Implement multi-factor authentication to minimize chances of accounts being taken over.
  • Install a fraud prevention solution that can be quickly adapted for identifying new attack schemes and methods.

Region-specific settings and configurations leave users vulnerable in some countries but not others

Helsinki, Finland – May 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Android dominates the global smart phone market and is used on many of today’s most popular phones. But research from security consultants with cyber security provider F-Secure demonstrates that devices from some of the biggest mobile phone vendors in the world suffer from region-specific security issues that affect users in some countries but not others, resulting in a fragmented landscape of security problems.

Devices examined by the researchers include the Huawei Mate 9 Pro, the Samsung Galaxy S9, and the Xiaomi Mi 9. The exploitation process for the vulnerabilities and configuration issues, as well as the impact, varies from device to device. What makes the discoveries significant is the implication that the security of devices sold globally offer different levels of security to users in different countries. Depending on the way vendor’s configure devices, this can essentially lower security standards for some people but not others.

According to F-Secure Consulting’s UK Director of Research James Loureiro, the presence of these security issues on popular devices expose the significant security challenges caused by the spread of customized Android implementations.

“Devices which share the same brand are assumed to run the same, irrespective of where you are in the world – however, the customization done by third party vendors such as Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi can leave these devices with significantly poor security dependent on what region a device is setup in or the SIM card inside of it,” said Loureiro. “Specifically, we have seen devices that come with over 100 applications added by the vendor, introducing a significant attack surface that changes by region.”

For example, the Samsung Galaxy S9 detects the region that the SIM card is operating in, which influences how the device behaves. F-Secure Consulting found that they could exploit an application to take full control of the device when the Samsung device’s code detected a Chinese SIM card, but not SIM cards from other countries.

Research conducted on Xiaomi and Huawei mobile phones found similar issues. In both cases, the researchers were able to compromise the devices due to region-specific settings (China for the Huawei Mate 9 Pro, and China, Russia, India, and others for the Xiaomi Mi 9).

F-Secure Consulting discovered the vulnerabilities over the course of several years while conducting research in preparation for Pwn2Own – a bi-annual hacking competition where teams of hackers attempt to compromise various devices through the exploitation of previously undiscovered vulnerabilities (zero-days).

F-Secure Consulting Senior Security Researcher Mark Barnes says these discoveries highlight a new, potentially very insightful, area of vulnerability research.

“Finding problems like these on multiple well-known handsets shows this is an area that the security community needs to look at more carefully,” said Barnes. “Our research has given us a glimpse of just how problematic the proliferation of custom-Android builds can be from security perspective. And it’s really important to raise awareness of this amongst device vendors, but also large organizations with operations in several different regions.”

F-Secure Consulting demonstrated attacks using these vulnerabilities at several different Pwn2Own competitions and shared their research with the Zero Day Initiative (Pwn2Own’s organizer) and the participating device vendors. All vulnerabilities used in the attacks have been patched.

F-Secure Consulting operates on four continents from 11 different countries. It provides cyber security services tailored to fit the needs of banking, financial services, aviation, shipping, retail, insurance, and other organizations working in highly targeted sectors.

Cloud Backup Expert Tips: How Do You Integrate Your Marketing Automation Tools with Salesforce?

Integrating Your Marketing Automation Tools with Salesforce Is Smart … Just Make Sure You Do This

There are countless advantages to integrating your marketing automation tools with Salesforce. The biggest advantage is that it allows you to centralize your approach to customer relationship management.

However, with all of your customer data now in two places tied together by integration, accidental deletion or overwrites caused by end users or admins of the marketing automation tool can have unintended, even devastating consequences.

How exactly could marketing automation tools impact Salesforce data?

A few common examples we’ve heard from Salesforce admins include:

  • Setting update integration rules incorrectly, which could cause the wrong information to pass between the marketing automation tool and Salesforce.
  • Running a bulk import incorrectly, which could cause good data to be overwritten with bad data.
  • Establishing incorrect sync-list criteria, which could prevent data from syncing from the marketing automation tool to Salesforce or visa versa.

One admin we talked to learned this lesson the hard way when a bad picklist value was set up. Here’s what happened…

  1. Several hundred leads filled out a form created by a marketing automation tool to register for a webinar.
  2. After each lead filled out the form, an activity associated with a campaign was created within the marketing automation tool to follow up with each lead who filled out the form.
  3. An activity to call the leads synced to Salesforce from the marketing automation tool.
  4. Once the sales team followed up with the leads who had registered, they closed the activity in Salesforce.
  5. However, the closed activity did not sync back to the marketing automation tool due to a validation rule – a bad picklist value. And because it was a bidirectional sync, this caused the activity to reopen in Salesforce.

What did this mean for the sales team? Since the activity was reopened, they were receiving hundreds of open activities in Salesforce, which caused confusion about which leads they had already followed up with. Furthermore, the team wasted valuable time by duplicating efforts when they could’ve been chasing down new leads. Not to mention hundreds of annoyed customers who now think that everyone at the company who keeps calling them about the same webinar is incompetent.

What would a Salesforce admin’s options be in this scenario?

The first is to do nothing. Why? Because without a solution that proactively alerts them when changes to their Salesforce data occur, the admin may not even know about the issue created by the marketing automation tool in the first place. Pretty scary, right?

Next, let’s say the admin gets lucky (or maybe that’s unlucky) and some of the sales people notice the corrupted data a couple of weeks later. Even if the admin exports and stores their .CSV files weekly, he or she wouldn’t be able to completely return all of the activities to their correct statuses. Why is that? Because the Weekly Export only allows the admin to back up data once a week. Therefore, any data that was altered since the last backup, such as these activity statuses, would be permanently lost.

The only way to ensure the admin gets every one of them back would be to manually change each of the hundreds of activity statuses back to their previous values.

If the admin was ok with a partial restore and potentially losing any of the activity statuses that were updated after his or her last backup (about 1 week ago), he or she could manually restore the overwritten data back to its previous values by uploading the .CSV files with just the activity status data to the campaign. The process to recover lost data using the Weekly Export can be complicated, time-consuming, and often incomplete.

Social Image for Marketing Automation Blog Post_2-2

A significantly faster and more convenient option is a third-party backup and recovery solution like OwnBackup. In the scenario above, OwnBackup’s Smart Alerts would have notified the admin of the issue the morning after the spike in activity changes occurred, and most likely before any salespeople discovered the statuses were changed. Using the Compare feature, the admin could easily review the data from the previous day’s backup with the latest backup from today side-by-side to see which statuses were changed by the bad sync. In just one click, the admin could easily return the values back to their previous settings directly from the Compare page. After restoring the changed statuses, the admin would then investigate and correct the bad picklist value that caused this problem in the first place.

Don’t Learn Your Lesson The Hard Way

Salesforce recommends using a partner backup solution that can be found on the AppExchange. Salesforce emphasized this recommendation further when they recently announced that they are retiring their data recovery service later this year.

Some partner services provide a form of backup and recovery for Salesforce data. However, what makes a solution comprehensive like OwnBackup is one that has proactive Smart Alerts, intuitive data identification tools, and fast recovery times in a data loss scenario. You should also be sure that the solution meets your company’s security and compliance requirements, and provides accessible, reliable backups of all of your Salesforce data, metadata, AND attachments.

You can read more here about the five things to consider when it comes to a comprehensive backup AND recovery solution. But in the meantime, just remember this: when it comes to your customer’s data—it’s always a good idea to get sales and marketing at the table together. Just make sure you save a seat for the Salesforce Admin and their Salesforce data protection expertise.

Code42 insider risk detection, investigation and response solution draws recognition for its innovative approach to data security

Minneapolis, MN — May 21, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider risk detection, investigation and response, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Endpoint Security Management Solution category. The company is being recognized for its insider risk detection, investigation and response solution as part of The 18th Annual American Business Awards®.

The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5. Tickets for the virtual event are now on sale.

“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness and compassion. We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”

More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year and App of the Year, among others. Code42 was nominated in the Best New Product: Business Technology – Endpoint Security Management Solution category.

“We are honored to be recognized with a Gold Stevie Award for the innovative way we help organizations protect their data from insider threat,” said Joe Payne, Code42′s president and CEO. “Some of the most common technologies used today for employee collaboration unfortunately are also vectors for data exfiltration. Using Code42 to detect the insider risks to data, companies can strike a critical balance between data security and user productivity.”

The Code42 insider risk solution provides a company-wide and segmented view of suspicious file movement, sharing and exfiltration activities. It sorts that activity by file type, user and vector, such as email, Dropbox, iCloud, USB, browser uploads, Slack and others. This information allows security teams to identify unusual data trends, gaps in security awareness and Shadow IT.

More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. The Stevie Award judges noted that the Code42 solution is a “great innovation and interesting solution to an age old problem” and “… a great tool to have in any organization and in any industry.”

The latest data storage innovations now available as part of the Open COVID Pledge and ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19 around the world

FREMONT CA, May 21, 2020 – /BackupReview.info/ — Seagate® Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage and management solutions, today announced that it has signed the Open COVID Pledge. The pledge grants free access to all of Seagate’s patented technologies to help enable diagnosing, preventing, containing, and treating of COVID-19.

The mission of the Open COVID Pledge is to provide access to every tool at the disposal of businesses and society toward the goal of rapid development and deployment of technologies in a massive scale without impediment, in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Seagate’s mission is to maximize the potential of humanity,” said Seagate’s CEO Dr. Dave Mosley. “Never has that been more important than during the COVID-19 pandemic. Collaboration is going to be key in the efforts to fight the disease and minimize the lasting impact. The Open COVID Pledge is another of the amazing ways we can all work together, and Seagate is proud to be a part of this pledge to help enable critical access to powerful solutions for the good of humanity.”

Seagate has already begun to take proactive steps in helping organizations around the world fight back against the pandemic. A few examples:

  • At the onset of emergency in China, Seagate donated critical medical supplies to several hospitals in China’s Hubei Province, including three fully equipped negative-pressure ambulances.
  • Seagate contributed storage and compute resources and employees volunteered their expertise to drive a positive impact on Folding@home’s COVID-19 program.

The faster a team can complete a work unit, the faster scientists can get to work studying these proteins and finding treatments for diseases like Alzheimer’s, COVID-19, cancer and many more.
  • Seagate and Vent-19, a nonprofit developing affordable rapidly mass producible solutions to help people breathe with ventilators and other biomedical devices, are working together to apply Seagate’s strengths in high technology, high volume, and low-cost solutions to help fight the impact of Covid-19.
  • Additionally, as part of Seagate’s long-term commitment to fuel its “Data4Good” program, a number of Seagate employees have volunteered their data science expertise and time to help various organizations focused on solving key issues associated with the pandemic. The program identifies opportunities for employees to directly contribute their skills and a portion of their time to fight against COVID-19 and makes it easy to apply their skills to bring about positive social impact.

A sudden wave of remote working has created an unprecedented demand for security solutions, but a new Business Report indicates that MSPs could lose vital business if they don’t balance their portfolio services accordingly

Chelmsford, MA – 21 May 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — This year marks the third annual MSP Day, a movement Barracuda started in 2018 to celebrate and champion the managed services industry and the changes and challenges it meets with each new year. As has become tradition, today Barracuda launched its latest The Evolving Landscape of the MSP Business Report 2020 to coincide with this year ’s event.

For this year ’s MSP Day, The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA), a leading voice and advocate of the global IT ecosystem, will be joining Barracuda for the first MSP Day virtual event. CompTIA’s Director of Member Communities, Miles Jobgen, will join Barracuda’s Director International MSP, Jason Howells, and VP MSP Strategic Partnerships, Neal Bradbury, to discuss this year’s report, alongside a host of videos and discussions on the state of the industry.

2020 ’s report takes a deep dive into the global MSP market, as channel partners the world over are presented with the opportunity to bolster their security offering to better support the new, more vulnerable mobile workforce that has emerged in the wake of the novel coronavirus.

Almost 300 global MSPs were interviewed for this year’s report, spanning the UK, US, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Australia and Spain. The findings revealed that regardless of location, MSPs across the globe are facing similar challenges when it comes to provision and the growth opportunities around future security offerings.

Key findings:

      1. The majority of MSPs plan to expand their services portfolio in 2020. A significant 91 percent of MSPs said they were planning to increase the breadth and depth of their services capacity in the next 12 months.
      2. Managed services look to be the top revenue generator for the vast majority of respondents. 69 percent of respondents identified managed services as the biggest opportunity for increasing sales in 2020. This is significantly up since 2019, which saw 54 percent noting managed services as their biggest opportunity.
      3. MSPs favor a hybrid approach to services. 53 percent of respondents expect to generate more than half (51 percent) or more of their business through managed services in 2020, with approximately another 45 percent saying they expected to generate up to 50 percent of business through managed services.
      4. Security services are higher up the agenda for MSPs this year. Endpoint Security, Email Security and Network Security all made it into the top five services table in 2020. In contrast, in 2019 email security was the only security service to make the top five.
      5. Rising security concerns and a lack of in-house skills within end user customers are driving the need for third party service providers. A majority 79 percent of MSPs felt customer security concerns were a good opportunity, particularly with the rise of remote workers. 72 percent said the lack of in-house security skills among their customers was also creating new revenue possibilities.
      6. The vast majority agree that demand for managed security services is increasing. 88 percent of those questioned said that demand for security services was either ‘moderately’ or ‘significantly’ increasing.

This year’s findings once again indicate significant positive shifts in MSP perception, growth and adoption as end users look to recruit cost effective and trusted cybersecurity skills to address their own skills gap and protect their data from increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals.

“Since launching MSP Day and the corresponding Evolving MSP Landscape report, we’ve witnessed a steady rise in the appetite for managed services throughout the world, which is evident in this year’s findings,” says Brian Babineau, SVP and GM, MSP Solutions, Barracuda. “Among that appetite, security is the most sought after service, particularly given our current global situation and cybercriminals’ willingness to exploit organizations that are suddenly much more vulnerable.”

“Security as a managed service is only going to become more sought after as organisations continue to wrestle with a shortage of skills and adjust to new working conditions, presenting a huge opportunity for MSPs to bolster their portfolios and cement themselves further as vital partners to their customer base,” adds Carolyn April, Senior Director, Industry Analysis at CompTIA. “Despite the skills gap and the pressure of consolidation for many, this report portrays a growing opportunity for the MSPs of the world as adoption of managed services continues to rise – of which security offerings are the leading commodity.”

“Now in its third year, MSP Day has quickly become the event of the year for MSPs looking to capitalise on these and future opportunities.” April continues.

WALTHAM, Mass. – May 21, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Moving quickly to meet their customers’ most pressing technology needs during a period of unprecedented disruption, Actifio was able to achieve its strongest first quarter on record. This week in theCUBE Conversation Series, two Actifio leaders elaborated on how the experience has forced certain priorities into urgency and how Actifio has been able to answer the call.

Actifio, the pioneer of multi-cloud copy data management software, reported details of its first fiscal quarter May 14, building on the momentum of its modern multi-cloud software platform that enables organizations to significantly lower their IT infrastructure costs, improve cyber resiliency and accelerate digital business initiatives amid a global pandemic that made many of their physical locations inaccessible.

Interviewed by theCube’s Dave Vellante, Actifio Chief Marketing Officer Brian Reagan said, “Businesses are realizing that their proprietary data is what is going to carry them through this crisis,” explained “That data, whether it’s changing the nature of how companies interact with their customers, how they manage their supply chain, or how they engage with their employees, is the lifeblood of a business. Organizations that are protecting that data, helping businesses get faster access to that data, and ultimately give them choices on how to manage that data — be it on premises, in the cloud, or in a hybrid configuration — are going to be top of mind. Our first quarter results are a demonstration that customers voted with their wallets and put their confidence in Actifio as an important part of their data supply chain.”

Paul Forte, Actifio Chief Revenue Officer, elaborated. “Everyone starts with a playbook or a plan, and that gets thrown out the window the moment you get punched in the face. COVID-19 has affected businesses everywhere, and it’s a reminder that you have to remain nimble, creative and opportunistic. From a leadership perspective, you can’t lose your confidence. In our first staff meeting I reminded the team what makes Actifio great in this environment. We didn’t get scared, we adjusted our playbook and we jumped right into it.”

Actifio was founded in the midst of the last financial crisis just over a decade ago. The lessons learned are relevant in 2020. CIOs are, once again, initially focused on cost containment and the protection of the business and its vital data.

Forte continued, “We help people get control of their costs and help them accomplish mission-critical goals in an infrastructure-light manner. We also emphasized the importance of having a single, easily accessible golden copy of your data. If you are attacked — and cybercrime is on the rise — you will want instant access to data and a time machine that can take you back and forth to those points in time. This is something that is incredibly valuable.”

TheCUBE Conversations series with Actifio can be viewed here. TheCUBE is powered by SiliconANGLE Media, a modern data-driven media platform that has become one of the most widely viewed and far-reaching sources of real-time enterprise technology content and interaction.

Sound Community Bank replaces legacy on-premises hardware with efficient iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect

HOUSTON, TX – May 21, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — iland, an industry-leading provider of secure application and data protection cloud services built on proven VMware technology, today announced Sound Community Bank is using iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect to secure all its workloads, including its active directory and exchange accounts.

Sound Community Bank serves more than 15,000 households and businesses with eight retail branches and two loan production offices throughout the Seattle, Wash. area. The company manages more than $715 million in assets with loan services that include consumer, residential and business products. A year ago, it began searching for a cloud backup solution to replace its aging on-premises hardware and meet strict federal finance regulations.

Technology services supervisor Sean Bornicke said the bank’s growing data and limited space precluded it from refreshing its on-premises backup system. As a Veeam customer, he needed an integrated and secure solution to advance the company’s Veeam® Backup & Replication™ environment to the cloud.

After vetting Veeam’s top partners for a compatible cloud solution that could address his needs of compliance, agility and cost effectiveness, Bornicke selected iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect.

“iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect is an agile solution that just works. It’s a set-it-and-forget-it type of service, which is exactly what a small-to-midsize IT shop needs when we’re talking about backup,” Bornicke said. “Backup is one of those things that you want to know always works. With iland and Veeam, it’s always worked.”

With iland, a four-time Veeam Impact Cloud and Service Provider of the Year, Sound Community Bank now has a secure and cost effective cloud backup solution that is fully-integrated with Veeam’s industry-leading backup and replication software. The solution has already proven a success in terms of efficiency.

The bank can now respond to data growth by increasing capacity in seconds versus weeks, as compared to the legacy on-premises environment. More importantly, with the combination of Veeam and iland, the company is able to meet the stringent security and compliance requirements associated with the financial services industry.

Based on his experience with the iland Secure Cloud Backup, Bornicke said Sound Community Bank plans to also implement iland Secure Cloud Backup for Microsoft Office 365 with Veeam, which provides complete backup and recovery for Office 365 data including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business.

“iland was my first choice to become our Office 365 Backup solution provider,” Bornicke said. “We know that Office 365 is a good platform, but they don’t guarantee anything. If something goes bad, a lot of people think that Microsoft is backing everything up. We’ve known all along that they don’t — they have redundancy but they don’t have backup. Securing our Office 365 data with iland really takes a lot off our mind.”

Exposes and prioritizes the riskiest file activity among remote workers

Minneapolis, MN — May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider risk detection, investigation and response, announced that it has enhanced its insider risk detection capabilities. New high-fidelity risk indicators filter out non-threatening activities to flag and prioritize high-risk file events that represent real threats and require security investigation. The risk indicators zero in on mismatched files types and extensions, unsanctioned file activity as well as suspicious off-hours and remote workforce activities.

Risk Indicators: https://www.code42.com/blog/cut-through-alert-noise-with-code42s-new-insider-risk-indicators/

“Cybersecurity teams are drowning in alerts that obscure legitimate risks to data, and they get burned out trying to chase them all down. Code42 is addressing this problem head on,” said Joe Payne, Code42′s president and CEO. “To protect data from insider threats, security teams need high-fidelity risk detection that cuts through the noise – this is what we call signal. Sharpening signal helps security teams quickly prioritize user activity that needs investigation. We believe Code42 is delivering the richest, most prescriptive data security signal on the market today.”


Video: Code 42 in 2′

The Code42 insider risk solution provides a company-wide and segmented view of suspicious file movement, sharing and exfiltration activities. It sorts that activity by file type, user and vector, such as email, Dropbox, iCloud, USB, browser uploads, Slack and others. This information allows security teams to identify unusual data trends, gaps in security awareness and Shadow IT.

To help security teams cut through alert noise and speed insider threat investigations, the new indicators further expose:

  • File mismatch risk – Identifies when a file’s content type does not match its stated extension, which may indicate internal attempts to maliciously conceal data exfiltration.
  • Off-hours activity risk – Tracks employee behavioral patterns to surface file activity that takes place at unusual times.
  • Remote workforce file activity – Offers a company-wide view of all data exposure and a segmented view of file risks caused by remote employees, as determined by IP addresses.
  • Unsanctioned file activity – Enables security teams to remove excessive notifications of trusted domains and URLs from dashboard views and alerts so they can focus on riskier file activity, like uploads to personal Dropbox accounts or email attachments sent to untrusted recipients.

Code42′s insider risk solution has received a number of industry awards in 2020, including a CyberDefense Magazine InfoSec Award for Best Insider Threat Detection and a Cybersecurity Excellence Gold Award for Best Insider Threat Solution.

VMWare vSphere customers can now reliably protect and recover virtual machines using HubStor’s unique BaaS approach through a pay-as-you-go subscription

OTTAWA, Ontario – May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — HubStor, a leading provider of cloud data management, today announced the availability of its Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) offering for VMware vSphere virtual machine backup, replication, and archival. HubStor’s announcement comes as the company ramps up the expansion of its unified backup and archive platform, providing organizations a cost-efficient approach to replacing legacy point products with a modern cloud data platform.

HubStor’s virtual machine backup solution for vSphere delivers simplified backup policy administration and monitoring, fully-integrated encryption, replication, and low-cost cloud storage.

With traditional backup offerings, a customer must license the software, then configure and manage secondary and offsite backup storage themselves. HubStor’s cloud-first approach enables customers to specify a small local cache for fast access to their most recent backup set. At the same time, HubStor maintains an immutable cloud replica automatically, achieving the 3-2-1 gold standard for data protection effortlessly. For long-term retention of backup sets, HubStor offers in-cloud backup and tiering options to preserve backups on ultra-low-cost cloud archive storage with geo-replication.

With the rising threat of ransomware that can target backups, organizations need to protect their backups with immutable storage. HubStor provides write-once-read-many (WORM) storage for all backups, seamlessly ensuring that any malicious encryption of local backups will not be a business-impacting event. Customers have the flexibility with HubStor to recover virtual machines to any on-premises and cloud infrastructure.

“HubStor is firmly planting its flag in the backup market with this release,” said Geoff Bourgeois, CEO and co-founder at HubStor. “Our differentiation is threefold: a streamlined user experience, simplified infrastructure for customers through Software-as-a-Service, and highly-competitive pricing.”

HubStor’s virtual machine backup service is available in both dedicated and shared BaaS models with pricing based mainly on cloud storage consumption instead of the number of virtual machines protected.

HubStor recommends dedicated BaaS instances for enterprise customers that need advanced security, data sovereignty controls, unlimited performance scalability, and scale-out expansion into HubStor’s other offerings such as file system tiering, Office 365 backup, journaling, and content archiving. Pricing for a dedicated instance starts at $335 per month, with monthly storage costs ranging from $0.003 to $0.03 per gigabyte after deduplication and compression savings.

HubStor’s shared BaaS model offers a lower entry price for customers that just want HubStor’s virtual machine backup capabilities. Pricing in the shared instance starts at $50 per month, scaling after that as a cost per gigabyte of storage. Backup storage costs in HubStor’s shared BaaS offering range from $0.003 to $0.03 per gigabyte monthly depending on the type of storage, with customers having full control over the storage tiering and retention of their backups.

“The HubStor virtual machine backup product is just like the rest of their software: It is fast, simple, reliable, and has an extremely small infrastructure footprint. One exciting feature is that it integrates directly with the SaaS management dashboard and storage accounts of our other HubStor products in use (file tiering and Office 365 backup). We look forward to seeing HubStor’s virtual machine backup go general availability so that we can replace our expensive and extraordinarily complex backup product currently in use,” said Ryan Reichart, Manager, Infrastructure Systems at Axon.

HubStor’s 15-minute setup process of the agentless HubStor Backup Service allows IT administrators to begin reliable protection of their virtual machines without undertaking a time-consuming onboarding and set up process.

“Our customers are telling us that their current backup product does a good job but comes at a high price tag, and the user experience is cumbersome,” said Greg Campbell, CTO and co-founder at HubStor. “In our private preview program for virtual machine backup, which we ran in February and March of 2020, participants often cited the ease of use and overall simplicity of the HubStor approach as their main attraction.”

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can also offer HubStor’s BaaS for VMware vSphere, in addition to other backup and archiving workloads on the same unified cloud data platform.

“Love the simplicity of HubStor’s UI – setup took less than 30 minutes, and it just works. This is one of the simplest ways for us to achieve our offsite backup requirements. I can sleep well knowing there’s an immutable copy of our VMs on Azure storage, and I can access those backups easily within the same pane of glass my other HubStor content lives in,” said Cory Coles, Senior Systems Administrator at Virgin Hyperloop One.

Enterprise-class Solution Enables Transition from #WorkFromHome to #FutureOfWork; Business Leaders Embrace Change from Workplace to Workspace

PURCHASE, NY – May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — The sudden and unanticipated exodus from offices across America resulted in many cobbled-together, less-than-effective, and often unsecure #workfromhome alternatives. Many of these were not meant to last longer than a few weeks, however remote working due to the COVID-19 pandemic has persisted longer than many organizations expected.

In both cases, employees will need to access the exact same technology,” says Marcus Holloway, CEO and President of MTM Technologies. “This change from workplace to workspace does not need to be difficult. In our AnyWhereApp 2.0 platform, MTM Technologies has integrated a number of tried and true technologies designed to support large and small numbers of employees whether working in the office or remotely from their homes.”

OSNEXUS announces a new NAS to Cloud tiering feature in its QuantaStor platform that enables Media Asset Management platforms to dynamically tier media content to Microsoft Azure blob as a low-cost archive storage tier

BELLEVUE, Wash., May 21, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — OSNEXUS, the leading developer of grid-scale software-defined storage solutions, today announced a new NAS to Cloud tiering feature in its latest QuantaStor 5.6 release that enables Media Asset Management (MAM) platforms to dynamically tier media content to Microsoft® Azure blob as a low-cost archive storage tier.

NAS Storage Tiering QuantaStor.png

MAM platforms require high-performance NAS storage systems for local media asset editing and playback, but as assets age, they need to be archived to free up space on higher cost NAS systems. Traditionally that migration has been to tape but with low-cost cloud options like Azure Blob, one can now securely and cost-effectively back up to the cloud.

OSNEXUS has created a highly-performing, highly-available NAS storage solution on QuantaStor for MAM platforms that enables users to set up automatic storage tiering to cloud object storage including Microsoft Azure blob.

“QuantaStor’s new cloud storage tiering feature brings a new level of cost efficiency to MAM as companies can now easily offload content to the cloud and that content still appears to be on their local QuantaStor NAS, enabling editors and artists to easily find the content because the system leaves file links behind after data migration,” said Steven Umbehocker, CEO of OSNEXUS. “Restore times are also improved as MAM systems can retrieve segments of video content from archived files without having to restore the full content stream as would be the case with tape.”

“We’ve been extremely pleased with QuantaStor’s Backup to Cloud capabilities and have worked closely with OSNEXUS to integrate it with the Dalet Media Asset Management platform,” said Paulo Lima, CEO of GTC. “These new capabilities are being leveraged by our major football club customers and they see significant time and cost savings versus previous asset archiving strategies.”

Backup Policies QuantaStor.png

QuantaStor cloud backup uses policies to migrate files from QuantaStor NAS to Microsoft Azure blob storage based on file age. QuantaStor works with Dalet media asset management to enable low-cost archive to Microsoft Azure with easy media recovery including video segments within files without having to download all of the content.

The OSNEXUS QuantaStor platform delivers a complete array of enterprise features and capabilities for file, block, and object storage. Additionally, it addresses a broad set of storage use cases including server virtualization, big data, cloud computing, and high-performance applications through scale-out physical and virtual storage appliances.

About OSNEXUS
Founded in 2010, OSNEXUS enables organizations to manage their storage ranging from small sites to hyper-scale deployments across global datacenters with its QuantaStor™ industry-leading Software Defined Storage (SDS) platform.

The low-cost, cloud-based solution to backing up open source databases enables startups, small businesses and individual professionals to enjoy enterprise-level peace of mind

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Among the countless number of malware threats affecting businesses, ransomware is the biggest offender, costing organizations over $7.5 billion in 2019 alone. Cyber-attacks affect more than just large companies, and Backup Ninja, a product of Severalnines, is the most simple, secure and cost-effective solution for small businesses to combat these threats. The software enables users to backup the world’s most popular open source databases locally or in the cloud, providing a safe and secure backup to minimize the impact caused by ransomware.

Ransomware attacks are costly, and small businesses suffer disproportionately due to less resources or a lack of sophisticated security tools and management. As the prevalence of ransomware increases, so too have the ransom demands; in 2019, ransom dollar amounts increased 37%. The downtime, often caused by a company’s unwillingness or inability to pay, can cost up to 23 times more than the ransom amount itself, and in 2019 those costs have soared over 200%.

“Small businesses are attractive targets because they have information that cybercriminals want, and they typically lack the security infrastructure of larger businesses,” said the U.S. Small Business Association (sba.gov). “According to a recent SBA survey, 88% of small business owners felt their business was vulnerable to a cyberattack. Yet many businesses can’t afford professional IT solutions; they have limited time to devote to cybersecurity, or they don’t know where to begin.”

For cybercriminals, there’s no more cost-effective option to hold a business hostage. It’s highly transmissible, as many clients often unknowingly spread the malware onto other devices, and many of the vulnerabilities that are preyed upon are of the company’s own doing. Weak passwords, poor access management, a lack of security training, and aggressive phishing email campaigns are all avenues of opportunity that cybercriminals regularly exploit for monetary gain.

Backup Ninja aims to provide an equally cost-cost effective but far more simple and sophisticated solution to combat ransomware through its safe and secure backup software. Whether stored locally or in the cloud, database integrity is always preserved to ensure a seamless restoration of data. If the threat of troublesome malware should arise, businesses won’t have to pay any ransoms, and downtime is kept to an absolute minimum.

Backup Ninja uses advanced TLS encryption for operations and encrypts stored databases using AES-256 encryption,” said Vinay Joosery, CEO of Severalnines. “Backup Ninja is simple enough for the smallest website database and feature-rich enough to support enterprise-grade requirements. Any application can take advantage of our service, as long as we offer support for the database you are using in your application.”

Businesses can protect themselves, maintain productivity, as well as profitability, with Backup Ninja, and never have to pay to retrieve their own data again.

Today’s enterprises are under pressure to deliver new products and features quickly and securely in order to meet increasing customer demand. Containers and Kubernetes have emerged as a powerful way to manage enterprise data and resources, with 87% of businesses already running container technologies and nearly half of businesses already running apps on Kubernetes in production. With over half of containers now stateful according to Voice of the Enterprise – DevOps, Security, AI/ML, and Cloud Native – 2020 by 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, enterprises must meet complex requirements like data storage, security, data protection, backup and recovery, disaster recovery, SLA management, and compliance. Portworx is the only cloud-native storage and data management solution in the market that delivers this full-stack Kubernetes storage and data management experience. It is designed from the ground up to handle enterprises’ complex requirements and simplifies data management across any hybrid or multi-cloud environment.

“Portworx has found success throughout the years by listening to enterprises in the cloud-native storage space and building solutions to their real-world problems. It’s that solution-focused drive that helps us provide customers with all the backup, storage and data protection solutions they need to address their ever-changing business requirements,” said Murli Thirumale, CEO and co-founder, Portworx. “Our company’s first-quarter momentum is the result of constant conversations with customers and partners. As the industry shifts and our customers’ needs evolve, we will embrace challenges and continue to learn with them. We plan to keep our foot on the pedal and look forward to continued growth and success in 2020 and beyond.”

“With the COVID-19 crisis increasing demand on the digital systems used by our customers to support their employees’ remote work, e-commerce and other high-demand activities, we’ve had to scale our apps and infrastructure significantly beyond what we could have imagined only a few months ago,” said Lee Liu, Chief Architect and Co-founder of LogDNA. “Luckily, with Portworx providing the Kubernetes storage and data management services essential to the performance, availability and security of our data, we have been able to easily meet the demand during these trying times.”

Results show that businesses have availability gaps preventing them from properly safeguarding against increasing cyberthreats

BOSTON, MA – May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — According to new Zerto research, a significant number of organizations do not back up their data or test their businesses continuity/disaster recovery (BC/DR) capabilities with enough frequency. As such, businesses across the world are introducing the risk of disruption and data loss in a world expecting 24/7 availability.

New Research Indicates Business Are Concerned with an Upsurge in Criminal Activity:

  • With Ransomware attacks on the rise, 56% of self-identified end users said they are re-evaluating their disaster recovery, backup, and cyber resilience strategy and tools.
  • Looking further into the findings, 62% said that they are still using traditional backup tools which poses an ever-present danger in recovery in the event of an attack. This comes at a time when replication technology, specifically Continuous Data Protection (CDP) can deliver point-in-time recoverability in a non-disruptive manner instead of backup copies burdening production environments.

The IDC State of IT Resilience Report, also commissioned by Zerto, noted that companies pay a high financial and reputational cost for downtime caused by ransomware and other cyber threats. It reveals that 37% of respondents experienced a direct loss of revenue, 61% suffered damage to company reputation, and 26% indicated a permanent loss of customers—reinforcing the need to find a solution that mitigates the risk and reduces the impact of downtime caused by cyberattacks.

Protection Gaps and Infrequent Testing Lead to Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities:

  • Two in five businesses stated that they back up their data every 12 hours or even less frequently—with 17% leaving a gap of more than 24 hours between backup copies creating potentially significant data loss in the event of an attack.
  • Sixty-four percent of end-users only test their BC/DR scenarios and recoverability on an annual or quarterly basis. This lack of testing means businesses are missing opportunities to reevaluate and adapt their BC/DR strategies so that they and their customers are protected from all types of disruptions and disasters. Frequent testing of BC/DR plans help ensure IT resilience and enables businesses to recover quickly if they fall victim to a cyberattack like ransomware.

“The combination of infrequent data backups and lapsed BC/DR capability testing within an organization is a cybercriminal’s dream,” explains Caroline Seymour, vice president, product marketing at Zerto. “If a company suffers a ransomware attack and cannot recover quickly, then the cybercriminal has full control of the situation. The company must either pay or accept that it is going to be offline for a significant amount of time. By contrast, if an organization has deployed a CDP solution, it can almost instantaneously recover to a point-in-time before the attack—and remove any leverage that cybercriminals may have.”

To learn more about how customers are using Zerto to better recover from ransomware and help their IT Resilience, sign up for Virtual ZertoCON 2020 on June 10, 2020 — https://www.zerto.com/zertocon/

RSA Floor Show Survey Methodology:
Zerto surveyed 100 senior-level IT and security managers during RSA’s 2020 Conference to ascertain the impact of malware and the robustness of their cybersecurity defense strategies. The respondents represent a mix of service providers and end-users across a variety of business sectors.

About Zerto

ProfitFuel for MSPs and BudgetFuel for internal IT teams serve as pillars for Kaseya’s IT Complete Platform aimed at helping IT thrive in today’s unpredictable economy

LONDON, UK — 20th May 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — As part of its first-ever, live streaming, innovation cycle broadcast, Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT infrastructure management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and internal IT organisations, today unveiled ProfitFuel and BudgetFuel – the company’s official value propositions for IT Complete, its comprehensive suite of IT tools for monitoring, management, security, cloud, continuity, compliance and more. These two pillars serve as the foundation of Kaseya’s steadfast commitment to quarterly innovation cycles that continuously innovate the platform and further the company’s goal of a modern, comprehensive, workflow integrated, cost-effective platform to serve all SMB IT and MSP needs. Together, ProfitFuel and BudgetFuel solidify Kaseya’s promise that, with IT Complete, users can save money and operate more productively, leading to increased customer acquisition for MSPs and business user satisfaction for internal IT teams.

Headlining Kaseya’s quarterly innovation cycle are several major product releases and feature enhancements. These now quarterly cycles of rapid research and development ensure Kaseya customers have access to the most innovative technologies, cutting-edge products, feature rich enhancements and unrivaled workflow integrations.

“This new world economy has accelerated a full digital transformation for small and mid-sized businesses reminiscent to the enterprise market evolution from years ago, and IT is the center of it all,” said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. “IT is now what enables small to mid-sized businesses to exist in this current climate and this has ushered in an era of dependence on SMB IT, where IT service providers now need a new, modern platform to meet this demand. This new platform must be able to deliver a comprehensive set of technologies that allow you to deliver all of the IT infrastructure that your clients or internal users require. It must offer tight workflow integrated tools that allow technicians to be substantially more efficient so that they can increase output and do more with less and finally. It has to be very cost effective enabling you to reduce the cost of your overall IT software kit. That’s what Kaseya delivers with IT Complete.”

IT Complete: ProfitFuel and BudgetFuel
Through its workflow and solution integrations, IT Complete eliminates the “space between,” or the valuable time IT professionals waste moving between disparate applications and processes. With these integrations, users can reclaim an average of 25% of their time back to focus on work that directly impacts their business’ bottom line. Additionally, IT Complete users see an average of 74% higher customer retention and business user satisfaction rates, and spend approximately 33% less than they would with competing point solutions.

IT Complete serves as the fuel to increase an MSP’s profitability by reducing software costs, increasing technician efficiency and powering all the essential IT services small businesses demand today. Similarly, IT Complete allows internal IT teams to free-up resources enabling those teams to better serve their organisation.

Together, ProfitFuel and BudgetFuel are the foundation for IT Complete and all product updates and feature enhancements that result from this and future innovation cycles. Other key updates from this innovation cycle include:

Product Updates

  • Kaseya VSA: As the definition of the endpoint has changed to encompass many more devices and network infrastructure, IT professionals are often required to utilise multiple tools in order to manage them. This release of VSA provides a topology map visualisation of both the network and endpoint environments to speed troubleshooting, understand asset relationships, and actively manage devices from a single, unified view.
  • Unitrends & Spanning – Unified Backup Portal: Stop wasting time managing all of your backup solutions independently. The Unitrends Unified Backup Portal empowers you to manage all backups from a single portal to perform your appliance, direct to cloud, and Microsoft O365 application backups.
  • IT Glue Password Folder Security: This highly-requested feature gives your organisation full control over how you manage password access across your organisation with macro (folders) and micro (individual passwords) controls to ensure that credentials map to your specific user and team policies.
  • Unitrends Conditional Alerts: Reduce the noise of backup alerts to only the ones you need to take action on. With this feature, Unitrends customers can specify conditions for alerts giving them complete control to determine when administrators need to take action.
  • Unitrends Helix: Announced in April, Unitrends Helix delivers a self-healing remediation platform powered by AI that monitors and automatically fixes the most common backup issues facing IT administrators when managing backups.
  • RapidFire Tools Microsoft Cloud Assessment: This new module for Network Detective focuses on aspects of Microsoft Cloud related to Office 365 and Azure AD. The assessment covers Azure AD, SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook Mail and Microsoft Teams. Resulting reports document and assess the configuration of the various Microsoft Cloud aspects and include a Risk Report and Management Plan similar to other Network Detective modules.
  • RapidFire Tools Network Detective Work from Home: Also released in April, Network Detective Work from Home features a self-service portal to empower employees, who are working off home computers, to initiate network and security scans to be analysed and documented by their companies’ IT support team before they connect to the corporate network. With Network Detective WFH, business owners can have peace of mind knowing that the integrity of their IT infrastructure remains in place, and also save money and reduce IT workload by allowing employees to use home computers and networks.
  • Spanning Dark Web Monitoring: Released in March, Spanning Dark Web Monitoring is a first-to-market Dark Web Monitoring solution for Microsoft Office 365 — and, in June, GSuite. It’s the only tool of its kind to combine world-class backup and restore functionality for Office 365 and GSuite with sophisticated Dark Web intelligence and search capabilities to identify, analyse and proactively monitor for an organisation’s compromised or stolen employee data.

Workflow Integrations

  • Kaseya VSA & Kaseya BMS - Automated Remediation: Improve the productivity of technicians with the ability to create automated remediation. Technicians create workflow rules to automatically run endpoint scripts in BMS (via Agent Procedures in VSA) and remediate issues based on IT tickets. This greatly reduces the number of manual actions technicians need to take.
  • Kaseya VSA & IT Glue – Execute VSA Agent Procedures within IT Glue: Enhance technician productivity by allowing the execution of VSA automation from within IT Glue – removing the space between IT Glue and VSA. This integration enables technicians to run VSA agent procedures for specific configurations directly within the IT Glue platform.
  • Kaseya BMS & IT Glue – Suggested Documentation: Get “suggested documentation” from IT Glue directly within the BMS ticket system based on the problem type to quickly guide technicians to problem resolution.
  • Unitrends MSP & Kaseya VSA – Advanced Integration: This advanced integration allows you to reduce the time needed to manage your backups by 25% with alerting, organisation sync, and deployment built into VSA that provides MSPs with greater automation to manage backups across their customer base.
  • IT Glue & Unitrends MSP: Cut down on the time it takes to manage backup by automating the documentation of all your backup information without ever leaving IT Glue. Administrators can see the status of all their backups and protected machines directly from the IT Glue interface they already use.

To learn more about the latest IT Complete updates, join Kaseya CEO, Fred Voccola and product leadership for an inside look at the newest product announcements and feature enhancements during a two-hour live broadcast today, Wednesday, May 20, at 11:00 a.m. EDT.

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – 20 May 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today the results of a new survey conducted by Omdia (formerly Ovum), which shows that the most requested service that customers want from managed service providers (MSPs) is security.

In the research report titled “Understanding the Security and Data Backup Market for Managed Service Providers (MSPs),” an Acronis-supported survey was conducted involving 263 MSPs in the U.K. and the U.S. that serve small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). Acronis is making the full report available today. In conjunction with the release of the report, Acronis is also hosting a live webinar on June 11 to help MSPs better prepare for future challenges.

Analyzing the results, MSPs showed an overwhelming demand for reliable security offerings: 97% of respondents indicated the importance of ensuring minimal data loss or corruption in the event of an attack, and 88% report needing to be able to rapidly mitigate damage for discovered cyberthreats.

In addition, 89% of respondents expressed the need to offer a service that goes beyond anti-virus, anti-ransomware, and firewalls. Acronis Chief Cyber Officer Gaidar Magdanurov comments that the findings are in line with the feedback the company has received in the last few years. “Service providers are looking to earn higher profit, avoid customer churn, and improve the ease of use of their technology stacks for their teams. In the survey, 84% of respondents confirmed that it is difficult to work with multiple vendors and suppliers for each aspect of the security stack. Instead of using multiple tools for backup, anti-virus, anti-malware, vulnerability assessments, URL filtering, patch management, etc., a single, integrated cyber protection solution would greatly improve their ability to efficiently provide better services to their clients. This is why we see rapid adoption of Acronis Cyber Protect by service providers from all over the world.”

One of Acronis’ latest offerings is Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, which provides a unique integration of backup with full-stack next-generation security and management tools. A single integrated solution simplifies day-to-day operations for service providers, increases the productivity of their technicians, and delivers much higher security and reliability for end customers, avoiding downtime and data loss that could lead to customer churn.

‘Keeping costs down’ is a key concern for MSPs, according to the Omdia survey: 92% of respondents say acquiring the skills and expertise to deliver security services is a major business challenge because many available services are expensive and scarce.

“COVID-19 continues to have a relentless grip on the world, resulting in the most challenging business environment we’ve seen since last decade’s Great Financial Crisis and the Great Depression of the 1930s,” comments Roy Illsley, Distinguished Analyst at Omdia, and one of the lead authors of the report. “In these environments where organizations are facing a new threat that they are ill-prepared for, cybercriminals can only thrive. To combat this, MSPs and their clients must have the ability to implement the most appropriate solutions to deal with these increasingly sophisticated attacks.”

“The challenge for MSPs is to understand the risk of continuing to use legacy solutions from multiple vendors to provide protection for their customers. The need for agile yet integrated solutions designed specifically for the MSP market is very high in these most challenging times.”

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, like all of Acronis’ solutions, is developed based on the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection— safety, accessibility, privacy, authenticity, and security (SAPAS). Cyber protection, which IDC calls a new IT discipline, addresses the need to combine data protection and cybersecurity, which have historically been treated as separate practices, to mitigate risk and meet the emerging challenges created by modern data use.

Michael Frisby, Managing Director of Vuzion in the U.K., notes, “Vuzion is committed to helping managed service providers build a sustainable and profitable business by offering them the best possible solutions. With Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, we have the opportunity to do just that. This integrated solution has a lot of potential and we are excited to learn more about how it can further benefit our customers.”

The Omdia survey also shares other useful MSP-related insights. For example, it lists the top three areas MSPs feel are important with regards to backup and recovery: being able to automate the backup process, providing protection against ransomware, and backing up the most popular SaaS applications, such as Microsoft 365.

Learn more about the survey
Omdia’s Illsey will review the full findings of the survey during Acronis’ June 11 webinar, examining how MSPs described their ability to protect their clients today and how they are planning to address those needs in the future. Registration for the webinar is now open here – https://promo.acronis.com/Ovum-Cybersecurity-Readiness-Among-MSPs.html

Acronis is also making the full results of the survey available here – https://www.acronis.com/en-us/resource-center/resource/492/

More about Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud
Acronis Cyber Protect changes the game by giving MSPs a single solution to deliver backup, anti-malware, security, and endpoint management capabilities such as vulnerability assessments, URL filtering, and patch management.

These integrated capabilities create new opportunities for MSPs to deliver enhanced cybersecurity. With Acronis Cyber Protect, MSPs can proactively avoid cyberattacks, minimize downtime, ensure fast and easy recoveries, and automate the configuration of client protection to counter the latest cyberthreats.

The result is improved margins, better profitability, easier SLA compliance, greater performance, and decreased churn – all at a lower cost.

Kaspersky detected more than 42,000 banking Trojan modifications in Q1

Woburn, MA – May 20, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky researchers have detected a sharp rise in the volume of malicious software aimed at stealing credentials and money from users’ bank accounts. In Q1 2020, 42,115 files of this type of malware were found, more than two and a half times higher than in Q4 2019. These were among the findings of Kaspersky’s IT threat evolution Q1 2020 report.

Mobile banking Trojans – or bankers – are a well-known threat in the cyber-community. They are usually used to steal funds directly from mobile bank accounts. These malicious programs typically look like legitimate financial apps, but when a victim enters their security credentials to try to access their bank account, the attackers gain access to that private information.

In the first quarter of this year, Kaspersky detected more than 42,000 modifications of various families of banking Trojans, the highest level recorded in last 18 months.

Number of installation packages of mobile banking trojans detected by Kaspersky, Q1 2019 – Q1 2020

The share of bankers found in the mobile threat landscape throughout the quarter increased to 3.65%, growing by 2.1% against the last quarter of 2019.

The most affected country, by the share of users attacked with mobile banking Trojans, was Japan (0.57%), followed by Spain (0.48%) and Italy (0.26%).

“In the age of social distancing and lockdown we are all using our mobile devices more often to use financial services – be it for remote communication, payments or transactions,” said Victor Chebyshev, a security expert at Kaspersky. “These devices have become one of our main in-hand tools and we should not let fraudsters take any benefit from our reliance on them.”

To reduce the risk of your device being infected by banking Trojans, users are advised to:

  • Install applications only from trusted sources, ideally from the official Google Play app store;
  • Use a robust security solution like Kaspersky Internet Security for Android to protect you from malicious software and its actions;
  • Do not perform the rooting procedure as this will provide cybercriminals with limitless capabilities to exploit your device.

The Solidarity and Social Investment Fund (FOSIS) protects its critical data, applications, and services, as well as saves 40% on VM backup costs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – May 18, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that the Solidarity and Social Investment Fund has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

The Solidarity and Social Investment Fund (FOSIS) is an agency of the Government of Chile, created on October 26, 1990. The agency works with nearly 120,000 members and has a budget of 80 billion pesos. The agency aims to provide opportunities to those living in poverty through income, autonomy, social empowerment, housing, and environmental programs.

FOSIS’s IT infrastructure consists of two sites with approximately 16 physical servers and more than 100 virtual machines. Virtual machines store various databases, applications, file servers, and web servers. As FOSIS reports directly to the Chilean government, all its data must be transparent to the public. The agency depends on IT to keep all its servers running steadily and ensure that data is always available. As a result, a solid backup and replication solution that is designed specifically for virtual environments is required to protect the agency’s data and guarantee high-demand services are not being compromised.

The previous solution that the IT team used for data protection failed to meet all the expectations of FOSIS. Virtual machines were not backed up efficiently and different problems arose from time to time. FOSIS needed to ensure rapid backup of all Hyper-V virtual machines and reliable replication of those virtual machines to its secondary site. A complete solution was needed whose cost and functionality would be suitable for FOSIS. Simplicity, high performance, and positive feedback from other companies were some of the main criteria FOSIS was looking for in a solution.

Initially, Aldaris, NAKIVO’s partner, recommended NAKIVO Backup & Replication to FOSIS as an alternative to the agency’s previous product. FOSIS selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication for reliable, easy-to-use, and cost-effective backup and recovery of data and applications on Microsoft Hyper-V. Diego Rosales, Head of Support and Operations at Aldaris, was responsible for the whole implementation process of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Due to the platform and connectivity components at FOSIS, installation required some time, but was a success after all because of the product’s efficiency and web interface simplicity.

Now, the IT team can back up Hyper-V VMs onsite and replicate them offsite. Through frequent backup and replication, FOSIS was able to improve data protection and backup speed. In comparison to the previous product, backup performance is really impressive given the size of the environment. Built-in speed boosting features, like network acceleration, allow FOSIS to increase VM backup speed in busy networks and can boost performance by up to two times. With Hyper-V replication, the IT team can create and maintain copies of Hyper-V VMs on a target host. In a disaster situation, all workloads can be failed over to VM replicas so that operations can continue as usual. Currently, with VM backup and replication, FOSIS protects more than 80% of its server infrastructure.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication also saved FOSIS money because the product is 40% less expensive than the other competitive solutions available on the market. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is cost-effective because it is designed specifically for virtualized environments, is agentless, and has global data deduplication and compression that save backup storage space. In addition, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers simple and efficient administration that allows the IT team to not only focus on the product management, but also work on other IT priorities.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, FOSIS protects its critical data, applications, and high demand services; improves backup speed; saves backup costs; and saves time on backup administration. Data protection with NAKIVO Backup & Replication is faster than what it was with the previous backup product. NAKIVO Backup & Replication also saves the IT team time on backup administration, freeing team members for other system or server tasks. Lastly, NAKIVO Backup & Replication is 40% more cost-effective than other backup products available on the market.

“FOSIS believes it was a success to acquire NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Hyper-V support is much more efficient and effective, management is hand-on and simple, while monetary savings are very welcomed,” says Diego.
