CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform Integrates with AWS Fully Managed Service

New York, NY - September 15, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — CTERA, the edge-to-cloud file services leader, announced today that it has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform has demonstrated successful integration with AWS Outposts deployments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates CTERA as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts Ready products are generally available and supported for AWS customers, with clear deployment documentation for AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and varying levels of complexity.

“Customers are looking for better ways to store and manage their data across the enterprise as part of a comprehensive digitization initiative,” said Joshua Burgin, General Manager, AWS Outposts, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform for AWS Outposts, customers can benefit from a comprehensive data management solution for any application in their environment, on AWS Outposts, or in AWS Regions, for a truly consistent hybrid experience.”

“CTERA is proud to achieve AWS Outposts Ready status,” said Oded Nagel, CTERA Chief Strategy Officer. “Our global file system technology is a natural extension of AWS Outposts, helping distributed enterprise customers to consolidate and replace legacy NetApp and Windows file servers, reduce file storage costs, and facilitate effective global collaboration.”

To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outposts deployments.

CTERA’s AWS Outposts Ready status allows customers to rethink traditional branch office IT and to enjoy unlimited file storage capacity at edge locations without compromising performance or security. Customers can easily deploy a wide range of edge-to-cloud file services use cases, including multi-site collaboration and global file sharing, VDI workspaces, and data tiering and archiving, while eliminating the overhead associated with dedicated traditional NAS and backup systems.

About CTERA
With more than 50,000 connected sites and millions of corporate users, CTERA has pioneered edge-to-cloud enterprise file services that enable organizations to harness the agility, scalability and cost efficiencies provided by cloud technology without compromising performance or security.

Global survey finds overall email volume has increased 34% since last year, without a corresponding increase in cyber security protection

WATERLOO, ON – Sept. 22, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — OpenText™ (NASDAQ: OTEX), (TSX: OTEX) released a new report, COVID-19 Clicks: How Phishing Capitalized on a Global Crisis that sheds light on what people know about phishing attacks, what makes them click on a potentially malicious link and overall cybersecurity and cyber resilience habits in the time of COVID-19.

“With mass work from home, an influx of emails and a general ‘always connected’ attitude, there are more opportunities for cybercriminals than ever before,” said OpenText CEO & CTO Mark J. Barrenechea. “We saw phishing URLs impersonating streaming services skyrocket during quarantine, as cybercriminals target people where they are most often. Businesses and consumers must prioritize cyber resilience and recognize that it is everyone’s responsibility to protect their data.”

The report suggests companies and consumers alike are falsely confident when it comes to cybersecurity. Nearly all respondents worldwide (95%) recognize that phishing remains a problem for companies and consumers, yet more than three quarters (76%) admit to opening emails from unknown senders, with over half (59%) blaming it on the fact that phishing emails look more realistic than ever before. The survey also revealed an opportunity for more security awareness education. Just 59% believe they know what to do to keep their data safe, with nearly one third (29%) admitting they’ve clicked on a phishing scam in the last year and one in five (19%) confirming receipt of a phishing scam related to COVID-19.

In the report, Dr. Prashanth Rajivan, assistant professor at the University of Washington, offered his perspective on how the COVID-19 pandemic and general increase in working from home could affect individuals’ and businesses’ cybersecurity status. “Like with distracted driving, working while doing other household chores or even watching TV seems easy enough when doing mundane tasks, such as email processing. But this type of distraction can also make people vulnerable. People might be less likely to properly notice and weigh the risks of a potential phishing message.”

Read the full report COVID-19 Clicks: How Phishing Capitalized on a Global Crisis – https://mypage.webroot.com/covid-clicks.html

Key Global Findings:

Phishing risks remain high, with more opportunities as the number of emails increase, workers log into corporate networks remotely and hacks look more real than ever before:

  • On average, survey respondents receive approximately 70 emails per day, a 34% increase over last year. More emails mean more opportunity for attack and more cognitive load to discern what’s legitimate and what’s a fraudulent request.
  • One in five respondents received a phishing email related to COVID-19.
  • 45% of people are shopping online more often, although 68% believe that there is a greater risk their credit and financial information could be exposed.
  • 42% have accessed their backed-up data to recover a file since COVID-19 began, as more people connect from home on new or additional devices and need to retrieve their files.

Companies and consumers are falsely confident when it comes to cyber safety. Despite knowing the risks, they’re still taking chances with their data, and that’s impacting their cyber resilience:

  • Only 59% of employees believe they know enough to keep themselves and their personal data safe from cybersecurity attacks.
  • But 64% of employees said they would open an email from their boss first, followed by 23% who would open an email marked as “URGENT” first, underlining people’s vulnerability to business email compromise attacks.
  • 22% of respondents admit to clicking a phishing link in their personal email while approximately 14% clicked one in their work email, suggesting employees may let their guard down outside of work.
  • Just 14% said employees are responsible for cyber resilience within their company, with 74% ascribing responsibility to IT or senior leadership.

More education and prevention measures are critical to achieve cyber resilience, especially remote workers who need to access company resources from personal or shared public networks.

  • Even though the pandemic has brought a new reliance on cloud and collaboration services like Microsoft® 365, only 54% of respondents said they or their company backup their Microsoft 365 files, leaving a huge gap in data recovery plans.
  • Only 21% of respondents claim their company has increased cybersecurity training during the pandemic, despite an influx of attacks and more risk associated with a distributed workforce.
  • Just 60% think their company is cyber resilient, demonstrating a general lack of confidence in what companies are doing to help protect consumers and employees from hackers.
  • 81% of people take steps to determine if an email is malicious, but one third still admit they’ve clicked on a scam in the last year.
    • 64% look at the sender address
    • 64% check if the email contains suspicious attachments
    • 56% look for misspellings or bad punctuation in the email
    • 45% check the link address (by hovering over link)
    • 29% do an internet search for the sender’s name/company
  • 14% of respondents admit they do nothing to determine if a message is malicious – these employees need to be identified and given additional cybersecurity training and coaching.

From our Editor: Several other football clubs have recently signed with Acronis, including: Arsenal, AS Roma, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Liverpool and Manchester City; Acronis also holds agreements with MLB’s Boston Red Sox, Formula 1’s Williams Racing and Racing Point, plus Formula E’s Nio 333 Racing.

Southampton Saints announce Acronis as Official Cyber Protection Partner

Acronis will be providing best-in-class cyber protection to the club to protect its critical data, applications, and systems

SOUTHAMPTON, UK – September 18, 2020– /BackupReview.info/ — Premier League football team Southampton FC today named Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, as its Official Cyber Protection Partner. Under the agreement, Acronis will be providing the team with a full suite of cyber protection solutions to protect the team’s data assets and optimize data workflow, facilitating the team performing at its best both on and off the pitch.

Head of IT, James Grove, comments: “Southampton FC takes cyber protection very seriously. Global organizations like ours often come under fire from cyberattacks, targeting our sensitive data which includes information on our thousands and thousands of fans. Protecting the data we have been entrusted with is a major priority for us, and we have the utmost confidence that Acronis is the perfect partner to help us do so.”

Acronis’ solutions are developed based on the Five Vectors of Cyber Protection— Safety, Accessibility, Privacy, Authenticity, and Security (SAPAS). This means that Acronis solutions are designed to not only provide the highest level of security possible, but also ensure that data is easily accessible to those with authorized permission, and that it is both authentic and tamper-free. While security and accessibility are often considered polarized concepts in data security, Acronis solutions prove that you can have the best of both worlds.

One of the solutions Southampton FC will be using is Acronis Cyber Protect, which provides fast and reliable backup and AI-based anti-malware, accessible from a single and intuitive console. While using a patchwork of five-star solutions for separate aspects of cybersecurity will still leave gaps in a system’s defenses, Acronis’ integrated approach ensures such gaps are eliminated, delivering superior resiliency for organizations like Southampton FC.

Building on its existing partnerships with both Acronis and Southampton FC, the solution will be delivered by Cobweb Solutions, a UK-based Managed Service Provider, as the Official Acronis Delivery Partner.

Acronis’ Founder and Executive Officer, Serguei Beloussov, comments: “We are proud to be partnering with Southampton FC, a household name in professional football. We are thankful that the team shares our vision and passion for cyber protection, and we are excited to work with partners who are so passionate about keeping their data safe. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic causing many employees to work from less secure home networks, more of the world’s workforce is being exposed to the digital threats. At this time, taking the necessary steps to protect an organization from both real world and virtual threats amid the pandemic is critically important.”

HAM Precision, a German precision tool manufacturer, protects its virtual environment and Microsoft 365 data with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that HAM Precision has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

HAM Precision is a precision tool developer and manufacturer, headquartered in Schwendi, Germany. The company manufactures precision tools for a variety of industries, including automotive, aerospace and precise machining. HAM’s IT infrastructure is scattered across three data centers, all of which are virtualized on VMware. Located in Hörenhausen, Germany, the main data center houses 47 virtual machines. Virtual machines store a variety of information, including two Microsoft Active Directory controllers, a network policy server, file servers, a print server, an ERP system, and an industrial process management system that shows the real production time for each manufactured tool.

Backup and recovery procedures are essential for HAM Precision. Most of the failures at the company are caused by employees accidentally deleting important files and folders. Some 80% of the recovery requests are related to files and folders, while 20% are related to failures with databases and objects. Without a proper VM backup solution in place, it might take HAM a day or two to completely recover deleted objects. Previously, the company used another solution from VMware that created VMware VM clones and copied them to an external destination. If a cloned VM was not copied correctly, the backup was immediately lost and data could not be recovered. Moreover, sending uncompressed data over the network took too much time with the previous solution. In addition, recovering the data took a long time and failed recoveries were a regular occurrence due to corrupted data or missing settings.

The previous solution also proved cumbersome and too often required manual intervention from the team. Issues arose often, especially when an admin forgot to change some settings for the network or storage. HAM Precision also lacked a daily overview of successful and failed backup jobs and wanted a software solution could be managed centrally from a single interface. Office 365 data was also protected via local backup. “The manual solution from VMware proved to be the wrong choice for us. If a colleague was on holiday and no one checked on the backups, we could be left with days without having proper backups. That is why we decided to look for a new VM backup solution that would provide us with stable VM backups and give an overview of the successfully completed backups,” says Lars Weimar, Head of IT at HAM Precision.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a versatile and universal data protection solution for VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, Nutanix AHV and Amazon EC2 environments, as well as physical servers and workstations, Oracle Databases and Microsoft 365 data. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication is easy to use and no complicated training is required to get to know the product in the department. Every IT admin can access the product via the web browser and no additional software is needed to get started. You receive all the information in one place, including an overview of how the backup jobs are progressing and whether they have completed successfully,” says Lars.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication delivers reliable protection for Microsoft 365 to ensure recoverability of mission-critical data. “We selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication for Microsoft 365 to back up our mailboxes, and at the end of the migration process, we shall be protecting a total of 110 mailboxes. The possibility to recover entire mailboxes, selected files, and folders in case of user deletion is the main advantage that we see with Microsoft 365 backups,” says Lars.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides various installation options, including installation on QNAP NAS devices, which is the option that HAM Precision chose. Integration of NAKIVO Backup & Replication with QNAP NAS allows HAM Precision to significantly improve the effectiveness of the entire backup process. “The installation process was super easy for us, while the web interface is clean and logical. The primary reason we chose installation of QNAP NAS was to save costs on storage and just combine hardware and software under one roof,” says Lars.

HAM Precision performs a full backup of all their virtual machines once a week and an incremental backup every day on weekdays. “The full backup takes nearly 18 hours and can be completed over the weekend. The incremental backups take several hours and are run every day. Once a week, we also replicate VMs from our QNAP server to an additional storage in a separate area, to ensure protection against any kind of outage or incident. This is also done for the purpose of long-term storage, as we need to keep VMs that are older than one year,” says Lars.

Instant VM recovery and instant granular recovery provide HAM Precision with near-instant recovery of entire VMs, files, folders, and objects. “We first tested instant VM recovery on our dedicated server and then rolled out the functionality on our production systems. One time, we were able to recover a database with all its data and that was literally done in a few minutes. We use instant granular recovery on a daily basis. This is the most used feature, as we are able to recover deleted or corrupted files and help our employees to continue doing their jobs successfully,” says Lars.

With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, HAM Precision protects its environment with VM backup, VM replication, instant VM recovery and instant granular recovery. The company also makes use of the built-in Microsoft 365 backup functionality. VM backup allows the company to perform full VM backups weekly and incremental backups daily. Instant VM recovery provides recovery of entire VMs and databases, in a matter of minutes. While instant granular recovery is the most used functionality that helps employees access deleted or corrupted files in a matter of minutes. Lastly, with Microsoft 365 backup, HAM Precision plans to protect 110 mailboxes in the near future. “Our previous solution was a mess as we ran into failures, lost backups, and we just wasted too much manual time. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a reliable backup solution that helped us save costs and time, and prevented failures from happening. We invested 2 hours every day into our previous solution. Now, everything is automated, so we spend just 10 minutes a day,” says Lars.

New Risks, New Rewards of Remote Work

  • 75 percent of C-suite IT execs have implemented at least three new data governance protocols since the pandemic began
  • 71 percent say employees aren’t doing enough to safeguard sensitive data

Mountain View, CA. – September 17, 2020– /BackupReview.info/– Today Egnyte, whose intelligent platform enables businesses to manage and govern content everywhere, published its inaugural Data Governance Trends Report, based on findings from a survey of 400 IT executives in August 2020.The Data Governance Trends Report highlights the challenges associated with the data type most greatly affected by remote working scenarios: unstructured data. (Unstructured data includes all the information stored in files like Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents, as well as images, video and more.)

“The demands on data governance leaders have been intensifying for the past several years,” said Egnyte CEO Vineet Jain. “There is more and more content straddling on-prem and multi-cloud environments. Business users are clamoring for consumer-like, self-service models of accessing files anytime, anywhere. Meanwhile, companies must adapt to a new slate of GDPR-style privacy regulations, and in parallel, there’s an explosion of new opportunities to interpret and analyze these huge unstructured datasets.”

Key findings show how the COVID-19 pandemic has forced CIOs to reimagine data governance plans in the context of remote-first (and remote-only) working conditions. It reveals new and emerging security threats associated with the work-from-everywhere paradigm, and digs into the strategies companies have adopted (and plan to adopt) to keep up.

While companies face a diverse set of challenges, several major trends emerged:

Remote work is driving more data sprawl than ever before. Seventy-six percent of IT executives are concerned about unstructured data sprawl, and more than half say remote work is the main culprit.

Remote is risky. Away from the office, 29 percent of employees are accessing corporate files through unsecured WiFi networks and on personal devices with no password requirements. On average, they report that 47 percent of files contain sensitive information.

Employees aren’t doing enough to protect sensitive information. Just 29 percent of C-suite IT executives give their employees an “A” grade for following policies and procedures to keep files and documents secure.

Nobody loves their content management architecture. Ninety-seven percent of CIOs say that content management is rife with problems, citing as examples files sitting on unsecured devices, data loss, and mismanaged permissions.

The digital future is automated. To take the load off workers, more than half of companies plan to invest in AI and machine learning to automate content management and data security.

For additional insights from the Egnyte team, register for the State of Data Governance on October 27.

Methodology
The Data Governance Trends Report was commissioned by Egnyte and conducted by an independent firm, Wakefield Research (www.wakefieldresearch.com). The study was fielded between July 31 and Aug. 12, 2020 using an email invitation and an online survey. Respondents comprised 400 U.S. C-Levels with Technology/IT titles at companies of 100 or more employees.

Tinton Falls, N.J. – September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ –  Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, announced today that it is bringing together an esteemed panel of industry experts to participate in a webinar focused on the environmental impact of data and how business can work to make it more sustainable.

In recognition of Climate Week, Forrester, Microsoft and WeTransfer will join Commvault at 10 a.m. EDT / 4 p.m. CET on Sept. 21 to lead a conversation about how intelligently managing data can maximize its benefits, while minimizing the impact on the planet. The webinar, titled “Data is the New Oil? And Other Thoughts,” will coincide with the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, and is part of several activities being hosted out of the Global Goals House in Berlin.

There is an undeniable dependency on data in everyday life. While there is much goodness to come from data in our lives, industry experts estimate that nearly 70% of data is a copy or is defined as data “ROT” – that is: redundant, obsolete, or trivial. The time is right for a meaningful discussion about how we intelligently manage data to capture all the goodness, while minimizing its negative impact.

Commvault is a member of the Business Avengers coalition, which unites 17 global companies together representing more than $500 billion in revenue and 900,000 employees to support the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agreed to by every UN nation. Commvault is proud to take on the mantle of SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production.

“Commvault is committed to helping do our part to reduce the IT carbon footprint worldwide,” said Chris Powell, Chief Marketing Officer, Commvault. “This webinar is designed to raise awareness of the proven research conducted by Forrester, as well as how Commvault and our partners are enabling our companies to become more energy efficient through the use of software. It’s important to not only preserve the world we have, but to actively reverse the effects of climate change.”

Webinar panelists include Forrester, Commvault, Microsoft, and WeTransfer. Also taking place during the weeklong Climate Week event are panels on “The Great Green Reset: Rebuilding Sustainability” and “Tech and Innovation for Sustainable Development.” There are also several sessions on social issues, including racial equality and gender equality.

Register for the event.

“Stands Apart” Across Key Backup Capabilities Including Recovery, Restores, Pricing, and Support

BOSTON, MA – September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Zerto, an industry leader for IT resilience, has today been named a TOP 5 Microsoft Azure cloud backup solution by the Data Center Intelligence Group (DCIG), a leading independent technology analyst firm. Their report highlights Zerto’s strengths across key cloud backup capabilities, concluding that it “stands apart by delivering the multiple options for uninterrupted application availability and recovery that enterprises inevitably seek.”

DCIG TOP 5 Reports are designed to enable IT decision makers to save time discovering, researching, and analyzing products for consideration. By understanding essential factors enterprises should include when selecting a provider, the reports identify differentiators between top providers that may be important to businesses and technology infrastructure.

The Top 5 Azure Cloud Backup report offers organizations guidance on the best solutions for backing up and recovering applications and data hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Evaluated against 12 other solutions, Zerto excelled across a range of features, including backup administration and capabilities configuration, licensing, and pricing to recovery and restores, snapshot administration, and support.

According to the report, Zerto stands out because it allows organizations to control costs by only creating compute instances in Azure during a recovery. It facilitates replication and failover of VMware-based workloads by allowing organizations to replicate and move VMware-based applications and data to Azure and back again when needed. Zerto’s platform also orchestrates cohesive recoveries in Azure by creating consistent groups that replicate, migrate, and recover all VMs in the proper order through continuous replication and journal-based recovery, eliminating gaps in the recovery of data.

This acknowledgement follows the recent announcementthat Zerto customers are leading the DR-to-cloud trend with rapid adoption of Azure. In the first half of 2020, global adoption of Microsoft Azure doubled across several customer verticals. And, virtual machines protected to Azure using Zerto has doubled year-over-year with half of the consumption driven by the education, financial services, healthcare, and technology sectors.

“Organizations of all sizes continue to move their applications and data to the Microsoft Azure cloud in growing numbers, and they must take steps to protect the applications and data they host there,” commented Jerome Wendt, DCIG resident and founder. “As a Top 5 Azure cloud backup solution, the Zerto IT Resilience Platform delivers the core backup requirements that organizations need to successfully adopt and embrace the Azure cloud.”

“Microsoft Azure is a strategic IT and business investment for organizations around the world, and Zerto is committed to protecting that investment by providing best-in-class backup and recovery,” said Caroline Seymour, VP of product marketing, Zerto. “DCIG’s evaluation further validates our approach to delivering always-available technology so all industries remain uninterrupted by downtime or disruption.”

Mass capacity storage and high-performance servers come together in the perfect software-defined storage platform, Exos AP

FREMONT, Calif. – September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in data storage and management solutions, today announced it is shipping 18TB helium-based enterprise drives in volume as part of the Exos® X18 family. The new drive delivers high performance and mass capacity for hyperscale data centers to efficiently and cost-effectively manage ever-increasing amounts of data. Additionally, Seagate’s Enterprise Data Solutions launched the new Exos® Application Platform (AP) 2U12 as well as a new controller for the company’s AP 4U100 systems.

The need for hyperscale and cloud storage solutions continues to rise to unprecedented levels with the ever-increasing growth in data generation.

The survey was conducted by IDC, which also forecast the global datasphere will reach a staggering 175ZB by 2025 in a previous IDC whitepaper sponsored by Seagate. The high-capacity Exos X18 supports this expanding need for data storage.

Using the Exos X18, Seagate’s Enterprise Data Solutions team combined high-capacity storage and compute into one platform. The recently launched AP combine servers and storage in an ultra-compact, dense system to meet the demands of businesses with varying performance and capacity requirements. The Exos AP 2U12 offers a new controller, flexible enclosure, enterprise-grade firmware, data protection, and automatic tiering.

“Seagate’s Exos X18 hard drives and upgraded Exos AP controllers enable enterprises to effectively tackle challenges associated with the exponential rise in data volumes by increasing system capacity and reducing deployment complexity,” said Ken Claffey, vice president and general manager of enterprise data solutions at Seagate Technology. “With the ever-increasing demand from enterprise data centers for greater storage capacity and efficiency, Seagate offers the industry’s leading density and configurability with ease of deployment for data lakes and private storage clouds.”

Exos X18 is the fifth-generation high capacity helium 3.5-inch 7200 RPM nearline enterprise drive offering 18TB with both SATA and SAS interfaces. It enables high-capacity storage solutions that ensure customers can scale capacity in a cost-effective way. It supports hyperscale, datacenter, and enterprise NAS system storage challenges by enabling ultra-fast data transfers, lower power and weight compared with traditional nearline drives, increased random reads/write (IOPS) than previous generations with 512e and 4KN formatting. Exos X18 includes built-in data protection through Seagate Secure™ technology that provides for safe, affordable, fast, and easy drive retirement.

The Exos X18 18TB hard drive is now available for an MSRP of $561.75.

F-Secure’s attack landscape update highlights attackers’ strategies to capitalize on the COVID-19 pandemic, and other developments with online threats

Helsinki, Finland – September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — While the COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted the lives and operations of many people and organizations, the pandemic failed to interrupt the onslaught of spam and phishing emails targeting people’s inboxes. That’s according to an attack landscape update published today by cyber security provider F-Secure.

According to F-Secure’s Attack Landscape H1 2020 report, which examines developments with online threats during the first half of the year, cyber criminals moved quickly to capitalize on the COVID-19 outbreak. Beginning in March and continuing through most of the spring, there was a significant increase of malicious emails utilizing various COVID-19 issues as a lure to manipulate users into exposing themselves to various email attacks and scams.

COVID-19-related campaigns included in these emails ranged from attempts to trick users into ordering face masks from phony websites, to infecting them with malware via malicious attachments. Three-quarters of attachments in these emails contained infostealers – a type of malware that steals sensitive information (such as passwords or other credentials) from an infected system.

“Cyber criminals don’t have many operational constraints, so they can quickly respond to breaking events and incorporate them into their campaigns. The earliest days of the COVID-19 outbreak left a lot of people confused or worried, and attackers predictably tried to prey on their anxieties,” said Calvin Gan, a manager with F-Secure’s Tactical Defense Unit. “Spotting malicious emails isn’t typically a priority for busy employees, which is why attackers frequently attempt to trick them into compromising organizations.”

Additional trends from the first half of 2020 discussed in the report include:

  • Finance was the most frequently spoofed industry in phishing emails; Facebook was the most frequently spoofed brand
  • Email was the most popular way of spreading malware, and accounted for over half of all infection attempts
  • Infostealers were the most common type of malware spread by attackers; Lokibot was the most common malware family
  • Telnet and SSH were the most frequently scanned ports

The report also notes that attacks leveraging cloud-based email services are steadily increasing and highlights a significant spike in phishing emails that targeted Microsoft Office 365 users in April.

“Notifications from cloud services are normal and employees are accustomed to trusting them. Attackers taking advantage of that trust to compromise targets is perhaps the biggest challenge companies need to address when migrating to the cloud,” explained F-Secure Director of B2B Product Management Teemu Myllykangas. “Securing inboxes in general is already a challenge, so companies should consider a multilayer security approach that combines protection technologies and employee education to reduce their exposure to email threats.”

The full report is now available on F-Secure’s bloghttps://blog.f-secure.com/attack-landscape-h1-2020/

Carahsoft expands its multicloud offerings portfolio with Wasabi’s high-performance storage

BOSTON, MA and RESTON, VA — September 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., The Trusted Government IT Solutions Provider®, today announced a partnership to target the public sector as well as reseller partners. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will make Wasabi’s high-performance cloud storage service available to the public sector through Carahsoft’s NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) V and National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) contracts and the company’s broad base of reseller partners.

Government IT professionals are expected to deliver the same type of innovative new services as the private sector. Secure cloud storage provides a scalable alternative to maintaining expensive servers, disk and tape drives. Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), including cloud storage, reduces operating expenses, helps understaffed organizations reduce the burden of managing infrastructure, and enables intra- and inter-agency collaboration and consolidation of resources. Public sector agencies that have recently upgraded or migrated their data centers are increasingly turning to cloud storage for backup and offsite data protection in the event of a natural disaster or cyberattack.

“Carahsoft is one of the fastest growing technology solution and distribution providers in the nation. By combining Wasabi’s disruptive cloud storage technology with Carahsoft’s extensive understanding of government procurement processes and the public sector, agencies and resellers can now receive the best possible value in cloud storage,” said David Friend, Wasabi CEO.

Wasabi hot cloud storage offers the pricing, performance and ease of use to address the challenges faced by agency IT professionals today. Wasabi offers a single tier of high-performance storage with no fees for egress, API requests or data management activity. All content stored on Wasabi is immediately accessible so the service can be used in the most demanding conditions.

“We are proud to partner with Wasabi to meet our public sector customers’ and reseller partners’ evolving data needs with top-of-the-line multicloud storage,” said Joe Tabatabaian, Manager of the team that supports Wasabi at Carahsoft. “As agencies pursue their modernization goals, the flexibility and scale of cloud storage allows them to better balance performance and resilience with cost efficiency to ensure that their data is secure and accessible whenever they need it.”

Wasabi’s cloud storage is available through Carahsoft’s SEWP V contracts NNG15SC03B and NNG15SC27B and NCPA cooperative purchasing contract. For more information, contact the Wasabi team at Carahsoft at (703) 889-9723 or Wasabi@carahsoft.com

“We wanted to build a board staffed with experts who have years of experience working with different agencies, service providers and system integrators who have served the public sector market for a very long time.

These experts will have the ability to tap into their knowledge and understanding of how the industry is evolving, what its needs are, and how Rubrik can help fulfill the needs and build products and technologies to serve the market the best,” said Rubrik CEO Bipul Sinha.

Crawford recently retired as the CIO of the U.S. Army in Aug. 2020. As CIO, Crawford was the principal advisor to the secretary of the Army. He drove the strategic direction and objectives for the Army network and supervised all IT functions. He also supervised the Army’s $12 billion IT investments.

One of Crawford’s primary goals with the service branch was “posturing the Army to leverage data as a strategic asset,” which aligns with Rubrik’s mission as the company has helped hundreds public sector agencies modernize their approach to security, backup and recovery, and data management.

“Data is the ammunition of the future fight and the fuel that enables The National Defense Strategy in this the Age of Great Power Competition. Very excited about joining the Rubrik team”, Crawford said.

During Crawford’s 34 years of service, he served in a variety of leadership positions at the tactical, operational and strategic levels. He has also served as a special assistant to the director of the Army Staff, as the 14th commander of the U.S. Army’s Communications-Electronics Command and Aberdeen Proving Ground senior mission commander.

Crawford, the second board appointment, joins Yogesh Khanna, who was recently appointed as chief technology and strategy officer with Sev1Tech earlier this month.

“We are cultivating the board with intention to help the public sector grow and manage change as quickly as possible,” Khanna said. “We want to begin adding additional members that represent the broader market. We break down the public sector into four primary segments—defense, intel, civil, and state and local. We’d like ample representation from each segment because the markets are unique in their own ways.”

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – September 16, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Pure Storage (NYSE: PSTG), the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world, today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Portworx, the leading Kubernetes data services platform enterprises trust to run mission-critical applications in containers in production, for approximately $370 million in cash. This deal represents Pure’s largest acquisition to date and the company’s deeper expansion into the fast-growing market for multi-cloud data services to support Kubernetes and containers.

“As forward-thinking enterprises adopt cloud native strategies to advance their business, we are thrilled to have the Portworx team and their groundbreaking technology joining us at Pure to expand our success in delivering multi-cloud data services for Kubernetes,” said Charles Giancarlo, Chairman and CEO, Pure Storage. “This acquisition marks a significant milestone in expanding our Modern Data Experience to cover traditional and cloud native applications alike.”

Portworx is the Kubernetes Data Services Platform most used by Global 2000 companies to provide persistent storage, high availability, data protection, data security, and cloud mobility for containers deployed in hybrid cloud architectures. By combining Portworx container data services with Pure’s industry-leading data platforms and Pure Service Orchestrator software, Pure will provide a comprehensive suite of data services that can be deployed in-cloud, on bare metal, or on enterprise arrays, all natively orchestrated in Kubernetes. With Portworx, Pure delivers the industry’s most complete platform for every stage of the cloud native journey.

Digital leaders are increasingly turning to the cloud native stack to process data into value and insight. Today, 95% of new applications are developed in containers according to 451 Research. By 2025, Gartner predicts that 85% of global businesses will be running containers in production, up from 35% in 2019. Yet, as cloud native scales, traditional and cloud-based storage can struggle to keep-up with the fluid nature of microservice applications deployed in containers, making data resiliency, mobility, security, backup, and recovery a challenge, especially in multi-cloud deployments. Cloud native applications deserve a storage services platform purpose-built to address these challenges. Together, Portworx and Pure deliver this, today.

“I’m tremendously proud of what we’ve built at Portworx: an unparalleled data services platform for customers running mission-critical applications in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The traction and growth we see in our business daily shows that containers and Kubernetes are fundamental to the next-generation application architecture and thus competitiveness,” said Murli Thirumale, CEO, Portworx. “We are excited for the accelerated growth and customer impact we will be able to achieve as a part of Pure.”

Portworx is the industry’s leading Kubernetes Data Services Platform used by enterprises including Carrefour, Comcast, GE Digital, Kroger, Lufthansa, and T-Mobile and was named the Leader in the 2020 GigaOm Radar for Data Storage for Kubernetes report.

“As a leader in multi-cloud and on-premise log management solutions, data is at the heart of our business,” said Tucker Callaway, CEO, LogDNA. “We work with Portworx because they provide the market-leading Kubernetes data services platform that allows us to offer the same fast, reliable, protected, and secure logging solutions to our customers, no matter where they decide to run their applications. We can see the power of this combination and look forward to many more years of sustained data-driven innovation from Pure Storage and Portworx.”

“Esri’s ArcGIS software delivers location intelligence for some of the world’s most pressing problems including Covid-19 tracking, fire mapping and disaster management,” said Brian Cross, Director of Professional Services, Esri. “We are proud to have worked with Portworx to implement cutting-edge cloud native storage technologies allowing our customers to solve these types of geospatial problems at massive scales. Portworx is a key partner for Esri as we develop and release our next generation of Kubernetes-based real-time capabilities, and we look forward to continuing our work together as it evolves with Pure Storage.”

“In 2019 we evaluated Kubernetes storage platforms for one of our services and after thorough research we decided on Portworx,” said Sven Sonnendorfer, Community Manager, Audi Business Innovation, a 100% subsidiary of Audi AG who provide cloud services to VW Group members. “The improved performance compared to the standard Kubernetes storage provider, the included features, reliable operations and upgrades and the great support demonstrate that this was the right decision. Portworx saves us time and money by providing more reliable tooling to our customers.”

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Sept. 17, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, today announced that its industry-leading Compass® enterprise SaaS backup platform has been listed as one of DCIG’s TOP 5 Azure Cloud Backup Solutions. DCIG has recognized Compass for its ability to provide a SaaS-based backup experience across hybrid environments, its superior analytics engine, and its ability to provide backup across multiple public and private clouds.

“Microsoft Azure has made big inroads in market share in recent years, and now more than 69% of enterprises rely on Azure as a viable public cloud choice with some of the best options to host Microsoft applications. However, the onus is on organizations to deploy a third-party backup and recovery solution to protect and restore their data if it is corrupted, deleted, lost, or compromised,” DCIG analyst Jerome M. Wendt said in his September report. “Regardless of the public cloud in which Cobalt Iron Compass finds itself, it excels at delivering backup and recovery. Organizations may deploy Compass in multiple ways in Azure and still access all of its features through an all-inclusive licensing option.”

In his detailed DCIG report, Wendt differentiates Compass from the other TOP 5 Azure cloud backup solutions in three areas:

Support for hybrid environments — Cobalt Iron offers organizations the option to deploy Compass on physical, virtual, or cloud instances. These instance types interact with one another to function as a single, logical converged infrastructure. Architected this way, Compass’ Accelerator self-manages these instances to perform ongoing software maintenance and updates, freeing organizations to focus on scheduling and managing backups and recoveries.

Analytics engine to improve backup and recovery — Every user enjoys the benefits of Compass Analytics Engine. This software constantly evaluates how Compass backups perform across all enterprise environments to include their backups in the Azure cloud. Using this information, it may then automatically take actions such as optimizing when backups run, resolving backup storage issues, and monitoring the infrastructure for the presence of ransomware.

Backup support across multiple public and private clouds — According to the report, other backup solutions generally support, at most, one or two public clouds in addition to providing backup for on-premises applications. Cobalt Iron Compass, however, protects applications and data hosted in the Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Google Cloud, and the IBM Cloud in addition to Azure. Since many enterprises have multicloud strategies, they may use Compass to back up applications across all of their chosen cloud environments.

“With this latest report, Compass has now earned a trifecta of TOP 5 rankings from DCIG — preceded by our listings for AWS Cloud Backup and Enterprise Anti-Ransomware Backup. It’s clear market validation of Compass’ great power and versatility for data protection across virtually any cloud or on-prem application,” said Andy Hurt, chief marketing officer at Cobalt Iron. “This recognition is especially gratifying coming from DCIG, a highly respected source of information for executives, IT managers, and engineers who have a critical need to choose the right data protection solutions for their operations.”

DCIG empowers the IT industry with actionable analysis that equips individuals within organizations to do supplier and product evaluations. DCIG delivers informed, insightful, third-party analysis, and commentary on IT technology.

BOSTON, MA – September 16, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — GRAX, the leading SaaS Data Value Platform, today released Fall ‘20 Quantum Edition, the fastest way for organizations to take back ownership and control of their Salesforce data by backing it up into their customer-owned cloud environments. Now, customers can tap the full strategic value of their historical data in Salesforce while maintaining full access to the entire historical dataset, both inside of Salesforce and outside of it in their organization’s cloud data lake.

According to ESG, “Most organizations see data reuse as the next stage of data protection: 59% see data reuse and data management as an extension of their overall data protection strategy, while another 21% say it will totally replace it.”1

“Who owns your data in your SaaS cloud applications? What about your data in third party apps that plug into those apps?” asked Joe Gaska, CEO and founder of GRAX. “Many organizations don’t realize that they don’t fully own their data. Meanwhile, ownership, possession and access to historical SaaS data is really important – not just for compliance or security reasons, but also for an organization’s ability to re-use that data for customer retention and growth. This is why so many of our customers turn to GRAX; we give them complete control over the use and reuse of their historical SaaS application data.”

GRAX Quantum Edition is able to rapidly and reliably backup, transmit and store complex Salesforce customer datasets into a customer’s cloud environment. Backup data remains available in production and becomes available for downstream consumption in a customer’s DataOps ecosystem via their cloud data lake. This delivers unprecedented value both inside of the Salesforce application and outside of it, for example, in a customer’s data warehouse.

“GRAX is helping us turn our customers’ cloud application backup data into a strategic asset for their business,” said Matthias Ulrich, Chief Technology Officer of logicline. “That’s something that only a handful of tech giants have been able to do thus far – amass a ton of historical data and actually use it to win – but GRAX lets anyone do it. This levels the playing field; we figured if we don’t help our clients start doing this right now, chances are that one of their competitors will – and will use it to win in their market against them.”

GRAX Fall ‘20 Release includes:

  • Bulk API usage – using the Salesforce Bulk API significantly increases the speed of Salesforce data backups, making it feasible to rapidly take ownership and control of the largest and most complex enterprise Salesforce datasets.
  • OAuth support – customers can now control access to their Salesforce data lake via OAuth, further strengthening their ability to fully own their data’s Digital Chain of Custody. CRM admins can easily maintain access management, verify access for authenticated users and revoke user access.

GRAX is the only SaaS data backup, archive and recovery tool that lets customers maximize the value of their historical cloud application data. It does this by letting them take full ownership and control of their data, store it anywhere and access it everywhere. The most iconic companies in the world that we buy from daily, wear on our wrists, have in our pockets or rely on to power the internet, all use GRAX. For them, GRAX is more than just an insurance policy – it is a way to unleash the power of their historical application data and use it to drive business continuity, regulatory compliance, strategic advantage, customer retention and revenue growth.

Nutanix Allows Hospital to Focus More on Patients and Less on IT in the Age of COVID-19

SAN JOSE, Calif. – September 16, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, announced today that Italy’s Gruppo Policlinico di Monza, a private healthcare facility that has been at the forefront of providing personalized healthcare with a breadth of surgical and medical expertise, has chosen Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software to help bring over 700,000 yearly patients the care and services they need to stay healthy.

Gruppo Policlinico di Monza consists of eight hospitals with over 1,000 beds and has approximately 3,000 employees and staff. In 2019 alone, they had approximately 10,000 admissions, 700,000 outpatient services, and 18,000 emergency room visits. To meet its growing patients’ requirements, Gruppo Policlinico di Monza needed to expand their IT infrastructure, while keeping a focus on security, reliability and disaster recovery all while keeping in check with GDPR requirements. All of this was compounded by increased demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Nutanix has allowed us to streamline our IT operations and reduce our datacenter footprint by approximately 60%, ultimately enabling us to better serve patients,” said Marco Bertolini, Head of Information Systems at Gruppo Policlinico di Monza. “Prism, Nutanix’s IT infrastructure management solution allows us to manage all our clusters, including maintenance, upgrades, and troubleshooting, is a significant time-saver and helps us maximize our efficiency and resources, which is more important than ever with COVID-19.”

Gruppo Policlinico di Monza’s HCI deployment, which includes both production and disaster recovery (DR), is now centrally managed and operated through Prism. Nutanix’s hyperconverged solution has led to a significant increase in data resiliency with distributed storage, providing redundancy and the ability to take storage snapshots at minute intervals. Additionally, the company’s new Nutanix DR implementation resulted in a decrease of RPO (Recovery Point Objective) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) by 80% on average while the performance of hosted virtual machines increased by 40% on average, with backup times halved. The technical solution has been designed and implemented by IT Impresa, a Nutanix certified Italian company.

“With Nutanix, Gruppo Policlinico di Monza’s IT team can spend less time worrying about the reliability and scalability of their infrastructure and more time focusing on their patients. Nutanix has also enabled Gruppo Policlinico di Monza to proactively respond to COVID-19, allowing employees to stay productive and continue to work,” Andrew Brinded, Vice President & General Manager EMEA Sales at Nutanix. “We look forward to expanding our partnership with Gruppo Policlinico di Monza and to our continued collaboration on their journey with Nutanix.”

Gruppo Policlinico di Monza intends to migrate all installations to the Nutanix AHV hypervisor in the near future, as well as expand the clusters by adding more nodes, further improving the performance of individual installations, and adapting them to any growing needs.

Nutanix is a global leader in cloud software and a pioneer in hyperconverged infrastructure solutions, making computing invisible anywhere.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – September 16, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity has been named to the prestigious Forbes 2020 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures. This is the second year in a row the company has appeared in the ranking.

Cohesity continues to be positioned as an innovator, disruptor, and a market leader. In addition to being recognized by Forbes, Cohesity was named a Leader in three industry analyst reports, including the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions, The Forrester Wave: Data Resiliency Solutions, and the GigaOm Radar for Unstructured Data Management — where Cohesity received top placement among 16 vendors.

“Cohesity is focused on delivering cloud-native solutions that make it a snap for businesses to back up, manage, and derive value from their data — all on one software-defined, web-scale platform,” said Mohit Aron, CEO and founder, Cohesity. “We continue to see rapid adoption of our cloud capabilities globally. We believe this recognition from Forbes further validates Cohesity’s unique approach to modern data management that solves mass data fragmentation and empowers customers to do more with their data — in the cloud, data center, and at the edge.”

As part of the rigorous selection process for the Forbes 2020 Cloud 100, Bessemer Venture Partners received submissions from hundreds of cloud startups. The Cloud 100 Judging Panel, made up of public cloud company CEOs, reviewed the data to select, score, and rank the top 100 private cloud companies from all over the world. The evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%).

“The private cloud ecosystem continues to mature in light of rapid digital transformations, making the competition to land one of the coveted spots on the Cloud 100 list steeper than ever,” said Byron Deeter, a top cloud investor, and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “Private cloud valuations are getting bigger as the market’s appetite for cloud continues to grow. Over the past five years, the average Cloud 100 valuation has grown by a tremendous 2.5x, from $1 billion in 2016 to $2.7 billion in 2020. In fact, our 2020 Cloud 100 includes over 87 private cloud unicorns! These founders represent the absolute best in cloud computing today, and they will most certainly follow in the footsteps of our esteemed Cloud 100 alumni. More than a third of the companies of the Cloud 100 have exited either via strategic M&A, financial M&A or Initial Public Offering. Congratulations to these cloud leaders!”

“In the face of this unprecedented time, digital is an urgent imperative, and the pace of innovation is accelerating. Companies around the globe, across all industries must adopt cloud technologies to enable their digital transformation,” said Matt Garratt, Managing Partner, Salesforce Ventures. “The opportunity is massive for the cloud — there are now more than 25 public SaaS companies valued at over $10 billion whereas even five years ago there were only three. Sectors from collaboration and security to retail and healthcare, are being disrupted and becoming more digital. Salesforce Ventures is excited to be partnering with Bessemer Venture Partners and Forbes for the fifth year in a row to recognize those who are not just predicting what’s coming but working to create the future.”

“For five years now, we have ranked the best and brightest emerging companies in the cloud sector,” said Alex Konrad, Forbes editor of The Cloud 100. “With so many businesses growing fast in the cloud, from data infrastructure to marketing, it’s harder than ever to make the Cloud 100 list. Congratulations to each of the 2020 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars honorees poised to join their ranks!”

The Forbes 2020 Cloud 100 and 20 Rising Stars lists are published online at www.forbes.com/cloud100 and will appear in the September 2020 issue of Forbes magazine.

The Cloud 100 and the 20 Rising Stars companies are publicly recognized at this year’s first-ever virtual Cloud 100 with memorable discussions from top cloud CEOs at thecloud100.com on September 16th from 9:00am PT – 12:00pm PT hosted by Bessemer Venture Partners, Salesforce Ventures, and Forbes.

TORONTO, ON – September 15, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — GlobeX Data Ltd. (OTCQB:SWISF) (CSE:SWIS) (“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 report that it has opened an office in Sydney, Australia in order to service its Australia and New Zealand markets.

GlobeX is planning to sell its secure document management, file share, password management and secure email suite SekurSafe, and its secure communications suite of secure email, secure file sharing and encrypted messaging solution Sekur, starting this month as preliminary discussions have started with potential distributors in Sydney, NSW and Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. The Company has identified over 500 potential IT resellers in the Commonwealth of Australia and is planning to select a few qualified resellers in the coming months, with the first distribution lined up before the end of this year. GlobeX plans to also offer its security solutions to the general public by late October, by creating a special landing page with AUD pricing. GlobeX will offer Sekur at AUD 9.99/month/user and SekurSafe at AUD 49.99/user/month.

Alain Ghiai, CEO of GlobeX Data said: “We are happy to bring our Swiss hosted security and privacy solutions to the Commonwealth of Australia and to New Zealand. Whether you are an individual, a SME, an Enterprise or a government organization, you need protection from email cyber-attacks, and data theft. Australia has recently been particularly attacked by cyber-criminals and the cyber-attacks are increasing rapidly. Our strength in using proprietary technology, Swiss privacy laws and no third-party platform such as AWS, MS cloud or Google cloud, puts us in a unique position to provide true privacy and security to all Australians and New Zealanders. We are aiming at introducing especially our new Sekur solution suite which includes secure email, secure file share and secure messaging. GlobeX is here to provide the proper protection to all documents, emails and instant message communications.”

According to a publication by Cybersecurityinsider-insiders.com, Australia is one of the top 9 countries most vulnerable to cyber-attacks and the average cost of cyber-crime per occurrence in Australia is USD 4.3 million. According to an article published on August 27 2020 on abc.net.au, the New Zealand stock market suffered a crash for at least four days due to a major cyber-attack. In Australia, according to an article published June 19 2020, Australia has been the victim of State sponsored cyber-attacks. According to a publication by website Statista.com, 57% of New Zealanders and 59% of Australians have been victims of cyber-crimes as of December 2019.

Sekur is the Company’s Swiss hosted secure communications suite, which includes encrypted messaging, voice recording transfer, self-destruct timer, an encrypted email account and a secure file transfer solution. All data is secured using GlobeX’s proprietary encryption technology and is hosted exclusively in Switzerland for ultimate privacy.

Sekur includes the Company’s proprietary anti-phishing and privacy feature called SekurSend®. SekurSend® lets a user send an email to any other recipient, whether they have Sekur or not, in full privacy and security as the email never leaves Sekur’s encrypted email servers based in Switzerland. The recipient can then click on the notification and reply in the same manner using SekurReply®, without the recipient having to register for a Sekur account. The sender can also decide to protect any email sent by adding a password to open it, a read-limit and a self-destruct timer as well. Using the SekurSend® feature allows the senders and recipients to add limitless size attachments to the emails without crowding the recipients’ email box. This also guarantees to eliminate BEC attacks for businesses and email phishing attacks. Additionally, Sekur includes the Company’s latest SekurMail technology, which includes full control of email delivery, automatic data export for large Enterprises and an automatic Data Loss Prevention technology (“DLP”) with real time continuous archiving.

One of the many Privacy and security features of Sekur is that the user does not register with their phone number, eliminating a huge loophole in security and privacy. Just recently, according to an article written by Lindsey O’Donnell and posted on the website threatpost.com on June 5 2020, it was disclosed that WhatsApp phone numbers and users were searchable on Google, creating a massive security and privacy breach. Earlier in the year, an article was written about a similar flaw affecting all businesses, NGOs, UN and non-profit organizations, where WhatsApp Group members were also compromised and searchable in a reverse engineering trick done on Google.

Recent data breaches in messaging applications and in particular in the WhatsApp application have created a certain urgency for businesses and data privacy advocates to protect their communications form cyber-attacks and identity theft via mobile and desktop devices.

Sekur eliminates many of the privacy and security risks by not only not requiring a phone number, which would divulge a user’s phone device ID, but also by not social engineering a user’s phone or computer contact list and infecting the contacts by default as well. Sekur issues each user a username and a SM number. The SM number is the contact ID a user would disclose in order for other SM users to be added. The service comes with a self-destruct timer and other features as well, including GlobeX’s proprietary VirtualVaults and HeliX technologies with all data stored in Swiss hosted encrypted servers.

GlobeX’s Data privacy solutions are all hosted in Switzerland, protecting users’ data from any outside data intrusion requests. In Switzerland, the right to privacy is guaranteed in article 13 of the Swiss Federal Constitution. The Federal Act on Data Protection (“FADP”) of 19 June 1992 (in force since 1993) has set up a strict protection of privacy by prohibiting virtually any processing of personal data which is not expressly authorized by the data subjects. The protection is subject to the authority of the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner.

Tinton Falls, N.J. – September 16, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced a new reference design with Pure Storage, the IT pioneer that delivers storage as-a-service in a multi-cloud world.

Together these solutions make it seamless to backup and manage data in the cloud.

As remote working continues to grow, so too does the increased risk of ransomware and malicious attacks, leading companies around the globe to seek data management solutions that offer protection, recovery and storage capabilities. At the same time, companies must continue to address SLAs while keeping data accessible and safe, in a cost-effective manner.

“As a leader in data backup and recovery, Commvault consistently helps our customers meet the many demands of data management, whether on-prem, in the cloud, or through a hybrid approach,” said Mercer Rowe, VP, Global Partner Organization, Commvault. “We are happy to take that one step further with Pure Storage to offer a solution that makes it easier than ever to address the many constraints of data management.

Solution Integrates StorNext File System and Scalar Tape Archive to Enable a State-of-the-Art Film Education and Large-Scale Film Projects

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Sept. 15, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Quantum Corp. (NASDAQ: QMCO), a global leader in unstructured data and video solutions, today announced that Studio FAMU has deployed a Quantum storage solution consisting of Quantum StorNext® scale-out file storage, a Scalar® tape archive and integrated media library asset management. The platform delivers scalable, centralized storage with simple, remote access to files while providing long-term preservation of student work. The implementation serves as an example of Quantum’s leadership storing and managing video.

“The Quantum StorNext solution enables us to centralize our storage, provide easy access to files, and enforce some discipline for the use of storage as part of the creative process,” noted Ondiej Šejnoha, Director, Studio FAMU.

A New Storage Solution Befitting a Modern Studio
One of the oldest film schools in the world, Studio FAMU offers extensive film production and post-production resources to support a world-class education at the Czech Republic’s Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU). The school provides the video storage for approximately 450 class exercises and large-scale film projects produced each school year. Because those projects increasingly use high-resolution and 4K video formats, Studio FAMU requires a large, scalable storage environment. Without a centralized approach, managing and protecting data and ever-growing video archives became extremely challenging.

When the studio began a major physical renovation project, they saw an opportunity to start a new era for the facility with centralized storage supporting the production and post- production workflow, from ingest through post-production, playout, and archiving. FAMU also wanted easy access to files, scalable capacity for large volumes of high-resolution media, and integration with an archive solution for long-term preservation of projects. In addition, the new storage solution needed to work with a media asset management (MAM) system to simplify the management and organization of media files while making it easier to share files.

With help from IT Service provider Agora PLUS, Studio FAMU chose an end-to-end Quantum StorNext solution, with a Quantum i500 tape library powered by the StorNext file system and data management platform. The environment is seamlessly integrated with an ELEMENTS Media Library MAM.

Scalable Capacity and Simple Remote Access to Support Hundreds of Projects
The studio deployed a high-capacity environment that could accommodate rising volumes of high-resolution files plus a growing archive. They initially planned for a 2 PB environment—80 percent for production and 20 percent for archiving. Today, students now have sufficient dedicated space on the StorNext file system to keep raw materials, and completed projects are archived to tape.

“With the StorNext file system and the integrated MAM system, students can access their work wherever they are—at home or the pub—from any kind of device. They can see files, make changes, and show their work to other people who need to see it,” says Šejnoha. “Professors can also view and evaluate work remotely. It’s much more convenient than moving around flash drives or external hard drives in a backpack.”

Remote access to work proved to be essential when the coronavirus pandemic reached Europe. “We’ve been very happy to have the Quantum solution during this challenging time. With Quantum’s StorNext solution, it’s very easy to share anything with students, professors, and other organizations—wherever they are in the world,” says Šejnoha.

Protecting Projects and Teaching Storage Discipline
Centralizing content helps Studio FAMU protect the projects in which students invest so much of their time, and Scalar Extended Data Life Management (EDLM) capabilities help ensure that data remains available for years to come. This modern approach also enables Studio FAMU to implement consistent policies. “Storage is a necessary part of the whole production process. Students can’t jump over storage,” says Šejnoha. “With the StorNext solution, we can make sure students are no longer hiding data somewhere. They learn the importance of proper storage behavior, which they’ll need in the real world.”

Latest AWS Designation Underscores SaaS Innovator’s Commitment to Making Enterprises’ All Cloud Vision a Reality

SANTA CLARA, CA – September 15, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Clumio, innovators of authentic SaaS for enterprise backup, announced today that it has achieved the AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Clumio’s enterprise backup as a service has demonstrated successful integration with AWS Outposts deployments. AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any datacenter, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience.

Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Clumio as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts. AWS Outposts Ready products are generally available and supported for AWS customers, with clear deployment documentation for AWS Outposts. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale and varying levels of complexity.

“Customers are looking for better ways to store and manage their data across the enterprise as part of a comprehensive digitization initiative,” said Joshua Burgin, General Manager, AWS Outposts, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “With Clumio on AWS Outposts, customers can benefit from a comprehensive data management solution for any application in their environment, on AWS Outposts, or in AWS Regions, for a truly consistent hybrid experience.”

“Clumio’s enterprise backup as a service is built on native AWS services, and our team continues to empower customers to take full advantage of the flexibility, scalability, and economics AWS provides,” said Poojan Kumar, CEO and co-founder, Clumio. “This latest AWS Service Ready designation validates our ongoing efforts to remove cloud barriers and help customers harness the power of the public cloud. Clumio offers a seamless data protection experience and consumes no AWS Outposts resources. We’re pleased to continue our work with AWS. As an APN member, we have also achieved AWS Storage Competency status for enterprise backup solutions, validating our deep domain expertise in core storage categories including backup and recovery.”

To support the seamless integration and deployment of AWS Outposts Ready solutions, AWS established the AWS Outposts Ready Program to help customers identify products integrated with AWS Outposts and spend less time evaluating new tools, and more time scaling their use of products that are integrated with AWS Outposts deployments.

Clumio continues to redefine SaaS backup for the all cloud enterprise, delivering a globally consolidated data protection service in, for and to the cloud. The Clumio platform provides a unified backup solution that protects public cloud, private cloud and SaaS with a single service, empowering companies to get to the cloud faster. The company enables enterprises to map to an all cloud vision, helping them manage and protect their dispersed data — wherever that data resides. As a result, companies can then reap the full scalability, flexibility and elasticity benefits of the cloud – without additional hardware or software for data management and protection.
