This is the first year of this assessment that is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework. To be included in the report, vendors must be able to address at least one pillar of the NIST cyber recovery framework beyond “Respond” and “Recover,” including “Identify,” “Protect,” or “Detect.” Cohesity solutions recognize all five pillars of the NIST framework.

“Cohesity has strong capabilities in core data protection and has pivoted quickly and effectively into cyber-resilience with a product portfolio designed to assist customers in cyber preparedness, including vulnerability scanning, early detection, incident response, and forensic analysis to orchestrated recovery. It also has AI-based anomaly detection that analyzes backup data to compute the odds of an anomaly and identify novel or emergent trends,” said Phil Goodwin, IDC MarketScape author and Research Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group.

  • Strong “downstream” ecosystem of relationships, including AWS and IBM
  • Zero trust concepts extensively embedded in the solution

It also has ML-based anomaly detection that analyzes backup data to compute the odds of an anomaly and identify novel or emergent threats.”

“At Cohesity, we believe that security and simplicity are the core tenets of modern data security and management.

Cohesity, Building Three Pillars to Protect Customers from Cyberattacks
As the threat of cyberattacks continues to plague organizations, it is not a matter of if, but when, sensitive data will be compromised. Equally critical to thwarting attacks is the ability to rapidly recover clean data and return business to full operation. Cohesity has addressed this challenge with a three-pronged approach. First, it offers best-in-class technology, including its award-winning, cyber vaulting service, FortKnox. Second, the Cohesity Data Cloud is an extensible platform that makes it easy to add and integrate third-party technologies, such as Tenable, zScaler, BigID, Qualys, and others. Third, Cohesity has convened a comprehensive and growing Data Security Alliance that includes an extensive set of leaders in the security market.

All parties, including external document contributors, can import documents directly into an inspection-ready platform securely and fully audited, eliminating the need for multiple systems and safeguarding the company’s data.

“Our CRO partners were easily trained to use Egnyte’s eTMF, and our study documents can now be seamlessly filed in the platform. One of the key benefits of this process is that we have direct access to all of our documents right when they’re loaded,” said Heather Wolff, vice president of Development Operations at Sionna Therapeutics.

Earlier this year, Egnyte launched eTMF import and archival capabilities, including the ability to utilize the eTMF-EMS as an importing mechanism, establishing a simple three-step import process with no limit on the size of the TMF to import, and the ability to capture all importing events in audit reporting.

Rubrik now provides additional data protection for Amazon S3, providing companies the ability to secure mission-critical data

AWS RE:INVENT, LAS VEGAS, November 27, 2023 — / / — Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced its ability to further protect Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) data. As organizations face increased pressure to protect their data against accidental deletion, ransomware, and cyberattacks, Rubrik has expanded its portfolio to allow customers further visibility into where sensitive Amazon S3 data lives and who has access to it, while also creating effective recovery plans.

Amazon S3 is an object storage service from Amazon Web Services (AWS) offering industry-leading scalability, data availability, security, and performance. Amazon S3 is built to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere. Millions of customers of all sizes and industries can store and protect any amount of data for virtually any use case, such as data lakes, cloud-native applications, and mobile applications.

“Organizations recognize the imperative to protect their corporate data, particularly as unstructured data expands due to new innovations in AI and increasingly connected devices,” said Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer at Rubrik. “Together, Rubrik and AWS are working to help customers protect their data on premises and in the cloud while reducing operational costs, so that organizations can achieve true cyber resilience. We’re proud to continue working with AWS on our mission to secure the world’s data.”

Rubrik’s new cyber resilience capabilities include air-gapped, immutable, access-controlled backups and rapid recovery at scale for organizations that have hundreds of petabytes of Amazon S3 data. The cyber posture features, which will help organizations understand where their data is stored and how it is secured, draw upon capabilities from Rubrik’s recent acquisition of Laminar, a leading data security posture management (DSPM) company.

The complexity of protecting data grows exponentially: the most recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report found that a typical organization’s data has grown 73% in the cloud over the last 18 months.

Key benefits of the new services for Amazon S3 and Rubrik customers will include:

  • Autonomously discover, classify, and provide context on all known and shadow Amazon S3 data, without that data leaving the customer’s environment.
  • Assess the security posture of sensitive data against security policies and data compliance requirements.
  • Continuously monitor sensitive data within Amazon S3 for risky user activity or leakage and provide early warning of emerging threats.
  • Identify and remediate redundant Amazon S3 data to help reduce cloud costs.
  • Rapidly recover the most recent clean copy using a range of recovery patterns, including object-level and whole bucket.

Rubrik also announced today new data protection features for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), expanding its commitment to offering complete cyber resilience for data in AWS. Additionally, Rubrik’s NAS Cloud Direct is now available in AWS Marketplace, expanding access to Rubrik’s solution that automates data protection and simplifies archival of NAS file data at petabyte scale.

Rubrik will be on-site at AWS re:Invent 2023 (booth #1352), taking place this week in Las Vegas. To learn more, visit

Rubrik’s new data protection capabilities for Amazon S3 will be generally available in early 2024.

Announcement follows recognition for market-leading backup and disaster recovery from analyst firms Canalys and DCIG

Burlington, Massachusetts – November 20, 2023 — / / — 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 Cove Data Protection™ for Microsoft 365® now offers an additional layer of protection against data loss for Microsoft Teams, including backup and recovery of teams, members, settings, and files.

With Cove, MSPs and internal IT organizations can now manage Microsoft 365 backups and recoveries from the same unified dashboard as servers and workstations, protecting critical data stored in Microsoft 365 Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint, and now Teams with one integrated solution saving time and improving efficiency. Backups are fully automated and performed several times a day. Earlier this year, Microsoft shared Teams has accrued 300 million monthly active users, reflecting the importance of the platform in the modern workplace—providing essential benefits to businesses with the continued rise in remote work around the world including strengthening lines of communication, streamlining work, and improving collaboration.

WSB Solutions, based in the Netherlands, uses Cove to protect more than 3,000 unique end users of Microsoft 365, and Senior System Engineer Gijsbert Luijten says the addition of Teams support completes the picture. “We have technicians at varying skill and experience levels, and Cove is straightforward enough for everyone to use with confidence,” Luijten said. “Cove just works, and gives us the ability to perform prompt restores and provide excellent service to our customers.”

Since launching the solution, more than 6,000 N-able partners are utilizing it to help prevent data loss across more than 58,000 customer domains.

In July this year, N-able was named as a champion in the 2023 Canalys Backup and Disaster Recovery Channel Leadership Matrix. Champions are defined by demonstrating the highest levels of excellence in channel and technology capability over the last 12 months compared with their industry peers, as rated by channel partners and Canalys analysts. In addition, Cove’s solution for protecting Microsoft 365 was named among the top five products for SaaS Backup Solutions for MSPs by analyst firm DCIG.

“Microsoft 365 offers excellent productivity tools for organizations, but many are often surprised to find that even Microsoft recommends an additional backup of their data versus relying solely on their own data retention,” explained Chris Groot, general manager of Cove Data Protection. “External and internal threats, accidental deletion, and regional compliance regulations make backing up Microsoft 365 data vitally important. The addition of Teams adds another layer to our partners’ backup and disaster recovery framework, helping MSPs strengthen their risk and compliance stance across the full threat lifecycle from one unified management console.”

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.

Data security provider recognized for strengths in extensive cybersecurity posture capabilities

PALO ALTO, Calif. – Nov. 17, 2023 — / / — Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced it has been named a Leader in the inaugural IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Cyber Recovery 2023 Vendor Assessment[1]. The IDC MarketScape also recognized Rubrik for its strengths in data monitoring and visibility and extensive proactive cybersecurity posture capabilities.

“Rubrik has pivoted the most into cyber protection and recovery, going so far as to position itself as a data security vendor. The Rubrik Security Cloud (RSC) suite of products includes data resilience, data observability, and data remediation functionality,” said Phil Goodwin, IDC MarketScape author and Research Vice President, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group.

According to the report, “In broad terms, cyber-recovery starts with fundamental data protection and builds upon disaster recovery. Thus it is not a product per se, but rather an integrated set of capabilities for the specific purpose of responding to ransomware. While backup/recovery (B/R) can claim to help with ransomware recovery, B/R alone is not nearly enough as discussed previously.”

“The amount of data companies need to secure could increase by as much as 7x in just the next five years. When coupled with the increasing frequency, sophistication, and impact of cyberattacks, organizations face complete cyber mayhem – and we believe the only way to withstand it is through true cyber resilience,” said Bipul Sinha, CEO, chairman and co-founder of Rubrik. “We believe this recognition by the IDC MarketScape not only underscores Rubrik’s leadership as a data security provider, but also a foundational solution in cybersecurity.”

Today’s announcement comes on the heels of Rubrik ranking in the #9 spot on the Forbes Cloud 100 list, and its acquisition of data security posture management (DSPM) leader, Laminar. The company continues to innovate, last week unveiling Rubrik Ruby™, the generative AI companion for Rubrik Security Cloud designed to speed cyber detection, cyber recovery, and cyber resilience.

About the IDC MarketScape
IDC MarketScape vendor assessment model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.

Keepit speaks in two sessions: With Porsche Informatik on how Europe’s largest car distributor works to ensure cyber resilience today; and a showcase on how to prepare for future data protection

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – November 16, 2023 — / / — Keepit, the market leader in cloud data protection and management, announced today that it will be presenting and exhibiting at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies in London, UK, from November 20th to 21st.

On Monday, November 20th, Keepit’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Jakob Østergaard will co-present with Josef Perlinger, Lead Program Manager Resilience, Security & Cloud at Porsche Informatik GmbH, in the session: “Keepit: Real-World M365 Cyber Resilience – Insights from Porsche Informatik.” The two talk about how Porsche Holding Salzburg, Europe’s largest car dealership, deals with the increase in cybersecurity threats by strengthening the organization’s cyber resilience with Keepit’s independent backup and recovery for Microsoft 365.

Key takeaways from the session will include:

  • How cloud backup is crucial to fortifying Microsoft 365 against cyber threats
  • Why an independent cloud is pivotal in achieving operational resilience
  • Case studies from Porsche Informatik highlighting challenges and solutions in implementing cloud backup

Session 2: Cyber resilience, AI and data protection
On Tuesday, November 21st, Keepit’s CTO Jakob Østergaard is on stage again – this time, with Keepit VP of Product Henrik Brusgaard, for an Exhibit Showcase session entitled: “Keepit: Accelerating Cyber Resilience with AI-Driven Data Protection Platforms.” In the session, they reflect on the challenges of applying AI to data protection and shed light on how Keepit works to assess and select which AI capabilities to adopt, in order to match future, next-level data protection needs while adhering to existing and coming regulatory controls.

“Harnessing the power of technological advancement while securing user activity and user data is a key charge for all SaaS platform providers, and we really look forward to discussing these questions with the audience in London. All businesses are becoming SaaS-powered. We’re seeing a continuous transition with companies typically using hundreds of SaaS apps – and IT’s biggest concern is how to secure those SaaS apps,” says Keepit CTO Jakob Østergaard.

Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2023 in London brings the world’s technology leaders together to hear top trends, find objective answers and explore topic coverage in addition to best practices.

One topic that will be central to the conversations for the Keepit team at IOCS is the upcoming Network and Information Security (NIS2) Directive being implemented across the EU from October 2024:

“NIS2 will be taking the urgency of adhering to regulatory standards on data and infrastructure protection to the next level: It effectively enables regulators to hold company executives personally liable if the company fails to comply with the regulation. As backup and disaster recovery capabilities are identified as critical for compliance with NIS2, I look forward to a lot of interesting discussions on how organizations are preparing themselves,” says Jakob Østergaard.

At the event, the Keepit team will also be sharing the latest insights on how to mitigate the impact of ransomware attacks by ensuring fast and complete recovery for enterprises. Research shows that a strong backup and recovery strategy can mean the difference between organizations being able to ignore extortionists and having to succumb to paying ransom again and again.

Boston, Massachusetts – Nov. 16, 2023 — / / — HYCU, Inc., the fastest growing data protection as a service company, today unveiled major updates to its HYCU R-Cloud data protection platform offering customers additional protection for their Amazon Web Services (AWS) applications across their data lifecycle, from build to runtime. AWS provides powerful, industry-leading capabilities and tools to securely protect customer data and who has access to it. The latest updates from HYCU, builds on this by providing customers with enhanced enterprise data backup and recovery functionality to ensure application data running on AWS services is protected across the application and supporting microservices development lifecycle.

More enterprises than ever before have rapidly adopted the use of modern applications running on AWS. These modern applications achieve the scale and flexibility required for mission-critical infrastructure by leveraging dozens of independent AWS services. A recent report found that on average organizations are running 184 microservices, with 60% of respondents running 50 or more (Vanson Bourne, 2019). Many of these services hold critical data, configurations, and settings that need to be protected and recovered consistently in case of an unexpected disruption. This changes the way customers backup and restore these modern applications and their underlying services.

Organizations developing and delivering cloud-native applications typically focus on production environments but miss the risk of not protecting their development and deployment infrastructure. Companies must re-think and protect the services across the entire application development lifecycle. HYCU is the only solution that enables protection of all critical applications and services from build to runtime. This means protecting applications used to design, develop, and build on AWS like Atlassian Jira Software, services used to secure critical services like AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), and deployment services used to take applications to production like AWS CloudFormation and AWS Lambda. HYCU helps to make every application and service protected and recoverable from the build phase to runtime.

“With customers data estates getting more complex and there’s a continued need to protect modern applications, we need to redefine the approach to data protection and the ways in which we backup and restore these applications. Mission critical data is not just in the production environment, it is also in the development and build environment. Customers need a way to protect every application at every stage of its lifecycle,” said Simon Taylor, Founder and CEO, HYCU, Inc. “Our newest updates for customers demonstrate our commitment to build on the powerful and secure AWS services to keep all the components of the modern application ecosystem available and most importantly recoverable no matter what the disruption may be, simple human error or malicious actor. We focus on not just the data, but also the settings, configurations, and functions that are critical to build, deploy and run modern applications on AWS as well as those Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) services supporting AWS applications. Our focus is to give organizations the power to restore and recover critical data and configurations for any service – in one click.”

With today’s announcement, the HYCU R-Cloud Platform now expands its offering to deliver a fully managed backup and recovery service that delivers granular, item-level restore and cross-regional recovery for:

  • Core Compute and Storage Services including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Storage (Amazon EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and AWS Lambda
  • Database services including Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon DynamoDB, and Amazon Aurora
  • Core Platform Services including AWS IAM, AWS CloudFormation, AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS), as well as,
  • Dozens of supporting SaaS applications that are critical parts of build and release of applications in AWS like Asana, Atlassian Jira, Jira Work Management, and Trello.

Key capabilities from the latest updates follow:

  • Granular, Item-level Restore for AWS services: Teams can rapidly restore granular items directly to production without scripts, all in one click.
  • 24/7 Backup Automation and Assurance: Teams can automate all backup operations for all critical services that make up an application. Notifications, reporting, logging, and role-based access control are built-in. No more scripts or manual configuration is necessary.
  • Automatically Store All AWS and SaaS Backups in Amazon S3: Teams can leverage their AWS storage at one central offsite location for data and configuration in all cloud services and SaaS applications being protected with HYCU.
  • Protect, Manage, and Restore from One Unified View: Protect AWS infrastructure, services, and SaaS applications along with an additional forty leading supported SaaS, DBaaS and PaaS solutions such as Atlassian Cloud, Okta, Asana, Salesforce, Notion, etc.

Prashant Parekh, long-standing HYCU partner and founder and CEO at KloudData, noted, “We share similar values to the team at HYCU. Our collaboration with HYCU has always been rooted in trust and the belief that enterprise-class backup and recovery building on already powerful AWS data resilience and security helps ensure a complete and effective way to handle data protection for our mission-critical AWS services. Their latest update to R-Cloud is a testament to their relentless pursuit of excellence. As we continue to embrace modern application development and the power of AWS services, having HYCU with us on that journey ensures we remain secure, agile, and future-proof as we modernize our environment. ”

“We have been tracking HYCU for several years now, and their progression to provide the most complete data protection for applications running on AWS has been impressive,” said Jerome Wendt, CEO and Principal Data Protection Analyst, DCIG, LLC. “At a point in time where customers are looking for solutions to protect and recover data that is not served by other third-party enterprise backup and recovery vendors, it is important that no application or service go unprotected. HYCU is taking significant steps forward to make sure this happens and is helping them as the fastest growing data protection as a service company.”

Sets New Industry Standard by Delivering Fastest Time to Cover the Broadest Number of Critical IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, and DBaaS in a Single Integrated Platform

Boston, Massachusetts – Nov. 16, 2023 — / / — HYCU, Inc., the fastest growing data protection as a service company, today announced it has added its 50th as a service integration for customers needing to protect and recover data for IaaS, DBaaS, PaaS and SaaS application workloads to HYCU Marketplace. This marks the first time in the industry users have a way to protect many of the leading SaaS applications with enterprise-class data backup and recovery to ensure applications are protected and recoverable from build to runtime. With fewer than half a dozen SaaS applications currently with enterprise backup and recovery software options available according to leading industry analyst reports, HYCU R-Cloud and HYCU Marketplace, HYCU now makes it possible for leading SaaS vendors to protect modern applications and associated microservices from initial design throughout the application lifecycle.

“In every industry, there comes a point where something shifts the paradigm. With HYCU, we’ve created an industry first platform to effortlessly protect, manage, and recover data no matter where it sits,” remarked Simon Taylor, Founder and CEO of HYCU Inc. “Introducing R-Cloud unlocked the ability to visualize an entire data estate, learn what data was protected and unprotected, and with 1-click simplicity, turn on protection when no other way was possible. This offered companies a simple yet powerful way to protect their entire data landscape. Today’s milestone marks not just an achievement, but a promise of our platform’s transformative power. Our team’s unrivaled expertise, coupled with the trust of our partners and customers, is what drives us. And trust me, this is just the beginning.”

The latest milestone marks significant interest and adoption of the HYCU R-Cloud platform by customers and HYCU partners. As HYCU supports a wide range of SaaS services used by an entire organization, HYCU has partnered with organizations focused on different functional areas. Over the last few months, HYCU has added more than 40 new partners to accelerate the development of the modules and also to deliver integrations to the hands of the users to protect their data. In addition, HYCU has trained champions within each of these partner organizations to help augment their existing capabilities and services to add as a Service protection.

HYCU R-Cloud starts with the premise that the key component of a successful data protection strategy is to have a complete view of the data estate. HYCU R-Graph allows organizations to visualize their entire data estate to observe and easily determine what applications including those that are as a Service are protected.

Since the introduction of HYCU R-Cloud in early 2023, there have been several significant milestones including today’s announcement of the 50th as a Service integration available directly from HYCU Marketplace. Here are the categories including a number of new AWS services (See Related Release: “HYCU Delivers Complete Data Protection for Cloud-native Applications from Build to Runtime Running on AWS.”)

  • Core Compute and Storage Services: This includes AWS services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Azure Compute, Azure Gov Cloud Compute, Google services like GCE, GCS, and GKE, VMware and Nutanix running on Public Clouds, Dell PowerScale family, NetApp, and any generic NAS device.
  • Database as a Services: Including Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS), AWS Aurora, Google AlloyDB, Google BigQuery, and Google CloudSQL.
  • Core Platform Services: Including AWS Identity and Access Management, AWS CloudFormation, AWS Lambda, Google Cloud AppEngine, Google Cloud Artifacts, Google Cloud Functions, Google Cloud Run, Nutanix NC2 on AWS, Nutanix NC2 on Azure, Okta CIAM, Okta Workforce Identity Cloud.
  • SaaS Applications: Including Asana, Atlassian Confluence, Atlassian Jira Service Management, Atlassian Jira Asset Management, Atlassian Jira Config Management, Atlassian Jira Software, Atlassian Jira Work Management, Atlassian Product Discovery, Atlassian Trello, ClickUp, Google Workspace, Microsoft 365, Miro, Notion, Salesforce, Typeform, and Terraform.

“Protecting organizational data stored in SaaS platforms in particular represents one of the larger, seemingly unsolvable problems of modern data protection,” said Jerome Wendt, Founder and Principal, DCIG, an industry analyst firm. “SaaS providers largely expect their clients to take responsibility for protecting the data they store with them. At the same time, SaaS providers offer no easy or scalable options for organizations to back up data in their platforms. HYCU has changed this conversation with the introduction of R-Cloud. It provides a process for providers to protect and recover critical data in their SaaS application. It equips organizations to back up their data in any SaaS application that has been integrated with HYCU. Further, HYCU both centralizes and simplifies SaaS data protection for organizations using a cloud-based as a service approach. HYCU R-Cloud represents a shining example of how organizations should protect data in today’s new SaaS world. It is no surprise it has received the interest and success to date. And, I would expect it to increase in the months ahead.”

Veeam’s reliable and trusted data protection enabled Ducks Unlimited Canada to eliminate third-party consultancy services and convert their IT Department from a cost center to a savings center

COLUMBUS, Ohio – November 14, 2023 — / / — Veeam® Software, the leader in Data Protection and Ransomware Recovery, today announced that Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), a registered charity and leader in wetland conservation, has expanded its partnership with Veeam by deploying Veeam Backup for Salesforce to ensure Salesforce data and metadata are securely backed up and accessible while instilling confidence in federal and corporate fundraising partners that their data is safe. Given the criticality of DUC’s fundraising in saving Canada’s most precious habitats, the company knows protecting fundraising data in Salesforce is fundamental to the charity’s success. By working with Veeam, DUC can recover data with speed and confidence while converting IT from a cost center to a savings center with $1 million saved over six years.

DUC partners with government, industry, not-for-profit organizations, Indigenous Peoples and landowners to conserve wetlands, grasslands and forests that are critical to waterfowl, wildlife and the environment. A national organization with headquarters in Manitoba, DUC engages a conservation community of 74,000 supporters who make generous financial gifts and participate in fundraising, as well as 22,000 landowners who protect and steward the ecological services provided by their land and 4,000 volunteers who support conservation efforts and awareness. Because DUC seeks funding from these diverse sources, funding often includes match requirements that must be tracked and reported to the funding source, making Salesforce pivotal in helping keep track of all the data being collected.

“Prior to deploying Veeam nearly a decade ago, we used an alternative data backup solution but found it overly complex,” Andrew Pratt, Director of IT, Ducks Unlimited Canada said. “We spent too much time resolving problems caused by unreliable backup, so we considered hiring a full-time backup manager, but we were already spending money on third-party tech support consultants because nothing was easy. Everything is easy with Veeam. Veeam is our easy button for data protection and disaster recovery (DR). Our Salesforce data is indispensable, so Veeam’s fast, flexible recovery is critical.”

DUC currently uses several Veeam solutions: Veeam Data Platform Advanced Edition for backup, replication, immutability, recovery and proactive monitoring and analytics; Veeam Recovery Orchestrator for 1-click mass recovery, automated DR testing and dynamic reporting for cyber insurance compliance, and Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 for complete protection of Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business and Teams. As soon as Veeam Backup for Salesforce became available, DUC switched from their previous backup solution and leaned on their confidence in Veeam.

“Organizations rarely think about backing up their Salesforce data until it is too late and some sort of incident – an accidental deletion, data loader mishap, or integration error – causes business-critical data loss,” said Shiva Pillay, GM and SVP, Americas at Veeam. “We strive to provide a comprehensive, purpose-built Salesforce backup solution, giving organizations the ability to recover from Salesforce data loss with speed and confidence. It’s great to see DUC leveraging Veeam Backup for Salesforce, on top of our other solutions, to ensure Salesforce data is backed up to prevent data loss, ensure compliance and enable fast recovery.”

By securely backing up fundraising data and metadata, Veeam eliminates the risk of losing access and control of data due to human error and integration issues. Data control is crucial, so DUC controls where Veeam Backup for Salesforce is deployed (on premises or in the cloud), how often backups are made, where they are stored (Veeam is storage-agnostic) and what is recovered (records, hierarchies, fields, files and metadata).

“Rebuilding data and metadata would be challenging and time-consuming — and it could hurt fundraising. Veeam Backup for Salesforce actually helps fundraising because our fundraising partners know and trust the Veeam brand, so they’re confident their data is protected, safe and secure with us,” said Pratt.

In addition to Veeam Backup for Salesforce, Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 and Veeam Data Platform protect and restore critical data too, including collaborative emails and habitat data in DUC’s geographic information system (GIS). Veeam Recovery Orchestrator increases DUC’s business resilience by automating recovery processes and provides DR documentation to support DUC’s compliance with cyber insurance requirements, serving as a safety net during data center renovations.
