Woburn, MA – August 11, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — In late spring 2020, Kaspersky’s automated detection technologies prevented a targeted attack on a South Korean company. Closer analysis revealed that this attack used a previously unknown full chain that consisted of two zero-day exploits: a remote code execution exploit for Internet Explorer 11 and an elevation of privileges (EoP) exploit for Windows. The latter was targeting the latest versions of Windows 10.

A zero-day vulnerability is a type of previously unknown software bug. Once discovered, they make it possible to conduct malicious activities discreetly, causing serious and unexpected damage.

While investigating the aforementioned attack, Kaspersky researchers were able to find two zero-day vulnerabilities. The first exploit for Internet Explorer is a Use-After-Free, a type of vulnerability that can enable full remote code execution capabilities. This exploit was assigned as CVE-2020-1380.

However, since Internet Explorer works in an isolated environment, attackers needed more privileges on the infected machine. That is the reason they needed the second exploit, found in Windows and using a vulnerability in the printer service. It allowed the attackers to execute arbitrary code on the victim’s machine. This elevation of privileges (EoP) exploit was assigned as CVE-2020-0986.

“When in the wild attacks with zero-day vulnerabilities happen, it is always big news for the cybersecurity community,” comments Boris Larin, security expert at Kaspersky. “Successful detection of such a vulnerability immediately pressures vendors to issue a patch and forces users to install all necessary updates. What is particularly interesting in the discovered attack is that the previous exploits we found were mainly about elevation of privileges. However, this case includes an exploit with remote code execution capabilities which is more dangerous. Coupled with the ability to affect the latest Windows 10 builds, the discovered attack is truly a rare thing nowadays. It reminds us once again to invest into prominent threat intelligence and proven protective technologies to be able to proactively detect the latest zero-day threats.”

Kaspersky experts have a low level of confidence that the attack can be attributed to DarkHotel based on weak similarities between the new exploit and previously discovered exploits that are attributed to this threat actor.

Detailed information on Indicators of Compromise related to this group, including file hashes and C2 servers, can be accessed on Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal.

Kaspersky products detect these exploits with next verdict PDM:Exploit.Win32.Generic.

A patch for elevation of privilege vulnerability CVE-2020-0986 was released on June 9th, 2020.

A patch for remote code execution vulnerability CVE-2020-1380 was released on August 11th, 2020.

To stay safe from this type of threat, Kaspersky recommends taking the following security measures:

  • Install Microsoft’s patches for the new vulnerabilities as soon as possible. Once both patches are downloaded, threat actors can no longer abuse the vulnerability.
  • Provide your SOC team with access to the latest threat intelligence (TI). Kaspersky Threat Intelligence Portal is a single point of access for the company’s TI, providing cyberattack data and insights gathered by Kaspersky over more than 20 years.
  • For endpoint level detection, investigation and timely remediation of incidents, implement EDR solutions such as Kaspersky Endpoint Detection and Response.
  • In addition to adopting essential endpoint protection, implement a corporate-grade security solution that detects advanced threats on the network level at an early stage, such as Kaspersky Anti Targeted Attack Platform.

For further details on these new exploits, see the full report on Securelist – https://securelist.com/ie-and-windows-zero-day-operation-powerfall/97976/

To take a closer look at the technologies that detected this and other zero-days in Microsoft Windows, a recorded Kaspersky webinar is available to view on demand. Webinar: https://www.brighttalk.com/webcast/15591/348704

DXi 4.1 Software in Veeam Backup & Replication v10 Environments Reduces Synthetic Full Backup Times from Hours to Minutes

SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 11, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Quantum Corp. (NASDAQ: QMCO) today announced new software with advanced features and capabilities for DXi backup appliances to significantly improve backup and restore system performance, as well as monitor systems remotely utilizing cloud-based analytics. The new DXi 4.1 software also integrates with Veeam® Backup & Replication™ v10 and the new Fast Clone feature, to enable ultra-fast synthetic full backups in Veeam environments for more efficient use of resources for large enterprises.

[Click to tweet: New @QuantumCorp DXi software with Veeam Fast Clone raises the bar for #backup performance and datacenter efficiency https://bit.ly/2TuJISh]

Improved Synthetic Full Backup Performance in Veeam Backup & Replication v10 Environments
Employing an incremental backup strategy is increasingly common. However, creating synthetic full backups on a backup appliance can be taxing on the system performance and on the network. To address this issue Quantum DXi 4.1 software leverages Veeam Backup & Replication v10 Fast Clone technology to accelerate synthetic full backup performance. Fast Clone references existing data blocks on volumes instead of copying data blocks between files, copying those blocks only when files are modified. The result is faster creation of synthetic full backups, reduced disk space requirements, and a reduced load on storage devices. Based on results from Quantum testing and early customer deployments, the combination of Quantum DXi software and Veeam Fast Clone can cut the time to create a synthetic full backup for a large VM from hours to just minutes.

Remotely Monitor DXi System Health with Quantum Cloud-Based Analytics
Quantum DXi systems can now connect to Quantum’s Cloud-Based Analytics (CBA) software, a cloud-based services tool that enables end-to-end integrated communication between Quantum systems and Quantum product and service experts. CBA software allows administrators to monitor system health remotely via a secure cloud-based portal. When Quantum CBA agents are enabled on DXi backup systems, those systems send telemetry and log data to the Quantum CBA software, providing administrators with a central portal they can use to monitor and track system and environment health and statistics, providing a proactive view into backup environments.

Other DXi Software Enhancements
DXi 4.1 software includes other new software enhancements:

  • Support for Veritas NetBackup Targeted Automatic Image Replication (AIR) with a new OST Targeted AIR Plug-In
  • Improved replication fan-in capabilities – up to 50:1 fan in for DXi9000 systems, and up to 30:1 fan-in for DXi4800 systems
  • DXi Accent path optimization to reduce network loads
  • More flexible system memory configurations
  • Support for additional virtual tape drives (VTDs) for VTL DXi4800

Availability
DXi 4.1 software is available today as a no-charge upgrade for any DXi4800 and DXi9000 backup appliance.

Supporting Quotes
Phil Goodwin, Research Director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC: “Traditional backup and recovery software remains strong, even as organizations add cloud-based backup to their data protection strategies. The combination of a Quantum DXi appliance and Veeam V10 shows great potential for enterprises seeking to protect their vital hybrid-cloud environments. Faster synthetic full backups enabled by this release means that organizations can backup more often, thereby reducing the risk of data loss and delivering a better RPO.”

David Harvey, Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Veeam: “Quantum DXi continues to develop as a valued tool for protecting vital Enterprise data. The combination of Veeam Backup & Replication v10 and Quantum DXi 4.1 software really moves data protection a step forward with a simple, flexible, and reliable solution for hybrid-cloud environments.”

Bruno Hald, General Manager, Secondary Storage, Quantum: “Backup efficiency continues to be a vital priority for Enterprises seeking to make the most of their datacenter resources while protecting increasingly distributed environments. These significant new software feature enhancements optimize performance with bandwidth and interface improvements, enabling DXi appliances to integrate much more tightly with backup applications.”

Q2 2020 Q2 2019 % Change
Revenues
Cloud Services $167.1 million $169.1 million (1.2)%
Digital Media $163.9 million $153.3 million 6.9%
Total Revenue: (1) $331.0 million $322.4 million 2.7%
Operating Income $73.0 million $56.6 million 29.0%
Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities $139.6 million $95.4 million 46.4%
Free Cash Flow (2) $115.9 million $85.8 million 35.1%
GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share (3) $0.80 $0.66 21.1%
Adjusted Non-GAAP Earnings per Diluted Share (3) (4) $1.71 $1.60 7.0%
GAAP Net Income $38.1 million $32.6 million 16.9%
Adjusted Non-GAAP Net Income $80.6 million $77.7 million 3.7%
Adjusted EBITDA (5) $132.9 million $125.2 million 6.1%
Adjusted EBITDA Margin (5) 40.1% 38.8% 3.4%

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

The Company has reinstated full-year guidance and now estimates that for fiscal year 2020 it will achieve revenues between $1.380 billion and $1.400 billion; Adjusted EBITDA between $556 million and $570 million; and Adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of between $7.17 and $7.41.

Adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share for 2020 excludes share-based compensation of between $23 million and $27 million, amortization of acquired intangibles and the impact of any currently unanticipated items, in each case net of tax.

It is anticipated that the non-GAAP effective tax rate for 2020 (exclusive of the release of reserves for uncertain tax positions) will be between 20.5% and 22.5%.

The Company has not reconciled the Adjusted non-GAAP earnings per diluted share and any related tax rate information included in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP measure because this cannot be done without unreasonable effort due to the variability with respect to costs related to acquisitions and taxation, which are potential adjustments to future earnings. We expect the variability of these items to have a potentially unpredictable and significant impact on our future GAAP financial results.

SHARE REPURCHASE PROGRAM

J2 Global’s Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase program. Under the new program, the Company may purchase in the public market or in off-market transactions up to 10 million shares through August 6, 2025. The timing and amounts of any purchases will be determined by the Company from time to time, depending on market conditions and other factors it deems relevant.

Nutanix Clusters enables seamless application migration and unified operations across clouds to help businesses accelerate their cloud journey with AWS

SAN JOSE, CA – August 11, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX), a leader in enterprise cloud computing, today announced general availability of Nutanix Clusters on AWS, extending the flexibility and ease of use of the company’s hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) software, along with all Nutanix products and services, to bare metal Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS). With this announcement, Nutanix delivers hybrid cloud infrastructure — one that allows businesses to accelerate their digital initiatives and optimize spending, priorities further amplified in the age of COVID. Nutanix offers a single stack that integrates compute and storage, provides unified operations across private and public clouds, integrated networking with AWS, and license portability from private to public clouds, thus addressing key technical and operational challenges of the hybrid cloud era.

According to Gartner, by 2021, 90% of organizations will have deployed a multicloud or hybrid cloud model for their IT needs1. Companies require the flexibility of multiple clouds while they continue to struggle with the complexity, operational silos, and costs of managing private and public clouds. A unified solution that provides a consistent experience, tooling, and operational practices across clouds will allow companies to break down silos and reduce inefficiencies while enabling the advantage of flexibility to choose the right cloud for each workload.

With this announcement, Nutanix extends the simplicity and ease of use of its software to public cloud. This eliminates the cost and management complexity of hybrid environments and enables seamless mobility across private and public clouds without any rearchitecting of the apps due to built-in networking integration with AWS. Customers now have the flexibility to choose the right cloud environment for each application with the added benefit of license portability across clouds, which has a direct impact on cost and resource optimization.

Additionally, customers will be able to take advantage of the company’s full software stack on private and public cloud. This includes unstructured storage solutions Files, application orchestration solution Calm, database administration and automation solution Era, and more.

“We are excited to support an extension of a customer’s private cloud environment into AWS with the launch of Clusters on AWS. This provides customers the flexibility to get the most out of both their AWS and Nutanix environments,” said Doug Yeum, Head of Worldwide Channels and Alliances at Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Customers now have an opportunity to take advantage of Nutanix Clusters on AWS to deploy adjacent to their cloud-native applications in AWS and fast track their digital transformation.”

Key features in Nutanix Clusters include:

  • Apps and Data Mobility: Nutanix Clusters solves a significant pain point for enterprises on their cloud journey by providing a seamless way to move legacy apps and data to the cloud. It enables mobility without needing to re-architect apps, something that can be extremely costly and time consuming.
  • Streamlined Operations with Unified Cloud Environment: Nutanix Clusters allows customers to create, manage, and orchestrate their infrastructure, as well as their applications, across private and public clouds, all through a single interface. Unlike competitive solutions that only offer siloed cloud management, Nutanix Clusters extends this to private and public cloud. This single stack removes the need for a separate team to manage each environment, or the re-skilling of teams, and also enables seamless app mobility across clouds.
  • Built-In Networking Integration with AWS: Thanks to built-in integration with the AWS networking layer, Nutanix Clusters delivers benefits in terms of ease of deployment and performance. The networking integration also allows customers to use their existing AWS accounts, including unused credits, virtual private clouds, and subnets. This enables a truly unified management plane across private and public cloud, and hugely simplifies the customer experience of managing a hybrid cloud environment.
  • Cloud Cost Optimization: In addition to addressing key technical and operational challenges with hybrid cloud environments, Clusters can provide significant cost savings to customers. This is achieved by removing the need for different teams to manage each cloud environment, eliminating the need for costly migrations for legacy applications, and providing a way to easily hibernate public cloud clusters with just one-click to help eliminate waste. Additionally, available portable licenses, flexible payment models, and increased visibility in cloud spend, through Xi Beam, allow businesses to optimize their cloud investments and truly choose the right cloud for each workload, without lock-in.
  • Freedom of Choice: Nutanix Clusters on AWS gives customers the choice to either reuse existing on-premises hardware or AWS credits when building out a hybrid environment. In addition, customers can also choose to bring the on-premises licenses or select a pay-as-you-go or Cloud Commit models.

Based on extensive research with customers, key use cases for Nutanix Clusters include:

  • Lift and Shift: Customers looking to move applications to the cloud, or consolidate their datacenters, can simply “lift and shift” them without any change. Clusters eliminates the need to re-architect applications, resulting in very significant cost and time savings to customers. Additionally, Nutanix Move provides application mobility between non-Nutanix solutions and Clusters to further simplify the process.
  • On-Demand Elasticity: Now customers can quickly scale capacity or expand to different regions in minutes by bursting into public clouds to support seasonal demands, changing priorities, and more. This is especially beneficial when speed is of the essence and adding capacity is a lengthy process, like expanding VDI resources.
  • Business Continuity: Customers can now leverage AWS for high availability and disaster recovery without adding complexity arising from managing cloud environments or a stand-alone disaster recovery solution.
  • Cloud Native Services: Customers can use cloud-native services with existing on-premises applications without expensive re-architecting. This results in easily modernizing existing applications by taking advantage of cloud native services like artificial intelligence, machine learning, analytics, and more to advance customers’ digital initiatives.

“On behalf of our customers, we have always worked to make IT so simple that it’s invisible,” said Tarkan Maner, Chief Commercial Officer at Nutanix. “As the industry evolved, our focus has expanded beyond the datacenter to help our customers manage the complexity of multiple clouds, whether private or public. Nutanix Clusters on AWS is the realization of this vision. This enables complete flexibility by allowing businesses to write code once and use it anywhere, taking advantage of scale, location, integration, and pricing of multiple options – this is the true vision of hybrid cloud.”

Nutanix customers shared:
“At Penn National Insurance, we were looking for a new solution to support our VDI workloads to ensure business continuity if our primary datacenter suffers from a disaster event. Nutanix Clusters allows us to easily create a hybrid and multicloud environment spanning our Nutanix datacenter and AWS, so that we can very rapidly burst capacity in AWS when we need to quickly restore our workloads from a backup,” said Craig Wiley, Senior Infrastructure Systems Architect at Penn National Insurance. “On top of the flexibility that this solution provides, the ability to use our existing AWS networking setup made the Nutanix Clusters deployment very easy while delivering the expected performance. Now, we know we can expand VDI capacity with one-click and hibernate our hybrid cloud workloads when not in use, so we only pay for the capacity we need.”

“The Australian Bureau of Statistics is Australia’s national statistical agency, responsible for, among other things, the Australian Census. The Census is Australia’s largest peacetime logistical operation, and the increased IT demand needed to support this Census project is one of the main reasons we looked at hybrid cloud platforms. They provide the flexibility and agility needed to adapt to significant spikes in demand,” said Julian Doak, CISO at the Australian Bureau of Statistics. “We were already Nutanix customers, running our VDI and analytical workloads in our datacenter, and also use AWS. A single cloud solution to manage multiple clouds will make it easier to scale our IT needs. Nutanix Clusters provides a seamless way to burst capacity into public clouds to increase our VDI workloads when needed to support Census activities, while knowing all our apps will just work – without needing to repackage or rearchitect them.”

Nutanix Clusters on AWS is currently available to customers in 20 AWS Regions. In addition to being able to easily use their existing portable Nutanix licenses, customers will be able to choose between Cloud Commit and pay-as-you-go models.

Woburn, MA – August 10, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — According to the latest Kaspersky quarterly DDoS attacks report, the number of DDoS attacks in the second quarter of 2020 increased three times in comparison to Q2 2019. This figure is almost the same as the number of DDoS attacks in Q1 2020. Kaspersky experts believe the rise in malicious activity can be attributed to the impact of COVID-19, as both cybercriminals and their targets have had to reconsider their summer plans.

The pandemic and subsequent social distancing restrictions have significantly changed people’s lives and many are either spending their days off in “staycation” mode or have cancelled their scheduled holidays. This change in summer plans has had unexpected consequences, like an increased number of DDoS attacks.

The number of attacks Kaspersky DDoS Protection detected and blocked in Q2 2020 is 217% higher than in the same period of 2019, and the number of attacks in Q2 2020 slightly increased in comparison to the first quarter of this year.

These results contradict the annual trends that Kaspersky researchers usually find. Normally, the number of DDoS attacks varies depending on the season. The beginning of the year usually sees a higher amount of DDoS, as it is a peak season for business, and in late spring and summer the number of attacks begin to decrease. For example, the number of attacks in Q2 2019 fell by 39% compared to figures for Q1 2019, and in 2018 the difference between the two quarters was 34%.

Image: The difference between Q1 and Q2 through 2018-2020. Q1 of each year is taken as 100%

This trend is reflected by the number of commands received by bots from C&C servers, which were intercepted and analyzed by the Kaspersky DDoS Intelligence system. Broadly, the average number of attacks registered daily in the second quarter increased by almost 30% compared to what happened in Q1. In addition, the biggest number of attacks per day was almost 300 in Q2 (registered on April 9), while in Q1 2020 the record was 242 attacks.

“This year, people have not been able to enjoy a normal holiday season as many regions have kept COVID-19 lockdown measures in place,” comments Alexey Kiselev, business development manager on the Kaspersky DDoS Protection team. “This has left more people than usual still depending on online resources for both personal and work-related activities, making this summer a busy period for online businesses and information resources. As a result, we saw unprecedented activity in the DDoS market, and there is no reason to predict a decline.”

To help organizations protect themselves from DDoS attacks during the vacation season, Kaspersky recommends the following measures:

  • Maintain web resources operations by assigning specialists who understand how to respond to DDoS attacks. They must also be prepared to respond out-of-hours, during evenings and weekends
  • Validate third-party agreements and contact information including those made with internet service providers. This helps teams quickly access agreements in case of an attack
  • Implementing professional solutions will safeguard an organization from DDoS attacks. For example, Kaspersky DDoS Protection combines Kaspersky’s extensive expertise in combating cyberthreats and the company’s unique in-house developments.

Pittsburgh, PA – August 3, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Expedient, a leading enterprise cloud computing and data center infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provider, has been named as one of the world’s premier managed service providers on the prestigious 2020 annual Channel Futures MSP 501 rankings.

For the 13th year running, MSPs from around the globe completed an exhaustive survey and application this spring to self-report product offerings, annual total and recurring revenues, profits, revenue mix, growth opportunities and company and customer demographic information. Applicants are ranked on a unique methodology that weights revenue figures according to long-term health and viability; commitment to recurring revenue; and operational efficiency.

Channel Futures is pleased to name Expedient to the 2020 MSP 501.

LONDON, UK – 6th Aug 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — The ongoing pandemic has left many clubs, organisations, charities and associations who have created so many communities for decades across the whole country fearful of their future and survival. Backup Everything is pleased to launch the Grassroots Data Protection (GRDP) initiative that will provide free (or at cost) cloud backup services to those in need so at least this aspect of their outgoings is covered without any worry.

Saaher Muzafer, CEO of Backup Everything says, “We are in unprecedented times and as an avid football and sports fan, it is only right we try and give something back to grassroots organisations to help protect their data from their Servers and PC’s for free or if larger volumes then at cost with no margin for us”.

Anyone using existing cloud backup providers can migrate over plus setup, support and no commitment policies will be given without charge. The offer is open to any football related organisations however we will not say no for anyone outside of this field and in need of help. Data is stored in ISO 27001 certified Data Centres with 256 AES encryption used for transfer of data at flight and at rest.

Saaher continues…”There is no motivation for making profit or having any financial gain from this unique initiative. Anyone having up to a few 100GB’s will be given a free service. For customers with TB’s of data, then we will assess how much we can give for free and the rest we will give at cost. At the end of the day we still have a business to run so we need to be fair and transparent to all parties and not end up giving a blanket free for all and then not being able to sustain later”.

The Cloud Backup solution provided by Backup Everything is a fully automated process where the user can select what they want to protect in some quick and easy steps making the backups run daily or to any schedule. To setup right away and to get your backups running immediately please click here

Cloud Backup Expert Tips: Bacula Community’s Open Source Network Backup Software

Network backup is a way to transmit backup data from the selected device or devices to the backup server via network (Internet). The backup server itself may be either privately owned, or via one of the many cloud backup providers available. Network backup itself is typically a clear necessity to ensure that your organization’s data is safe and protected.

Some network backup systems are also capable of managing backup of data stored in different types of storage media that are connected to your backup server via some kind of network. This can be especially important for larger enterprises that are dealing with massive amounts of data in their NAS (network attached storage) devices.

Aside from the more regular backup practices and considerations, network backup has its own specific limitations and challenges. Here are some examples of typical challenges – or even obstructions – to effective network backup:

  • Network hardware that is no longer fit for purpose (outdated, obsolete, old and/or unreliable)
  • Files that are still open or being written to at the time of the backup
  • Low security standards across the network
  • The connection speed for the process is slow or inconsistent.

Modern open source backup software should be able to operate correctly within various network types and conditions, and should have a variety of features, including:

  • No limitations for network backup data or individual files being backed up;
  • The ability to localize the backup operation, creating a backup of a data that is kept within all of the devices in a certain network;
  • The option to quickly copy and paste singular files;
  • The ability to backup entire operating systems of end devices, from switches and routers to computers and servers;
  • The ability to include configuration files of different sizes and formats in the backups;
  • The ability to perform at least a part of the process automatically;
  • The flexibility to manage with situations arising from limited or inconsistent network speed and connectivity.

It can sometimes be the perception that the main purpose of free network backup solutions is to protect data in the case of some sort of a disaster that causes information loss. It is strongly recommended to also consider the advantages of  network backup beyond only disaster situations.

Implementing an open source network backup software as a part of the company’s platform to begin with allows much easier, efficient and more convenient protection of an organization’s information in general. New technologies are constantly increasing the amount of information that is typically being created on a daily basis, and there are many contributing factors for such exponential increase in information generation, such as IoT (internet of things), virtualization, artificial intelligence, big data, and so on.

The amount of information that an average organization is working with nowadays is considerable and nearly always growing – and often requires the best free network backup software to protect their data from either partial or total loss. The network backup itself is a backup method that copies the data flowing through the local network, WAN and perhaps FC/iSCSi protocols.

There is no doubt that some companies require case-specific solutions for their free network backup software needs, however there are also some general recommendations of what a proper open source network backup software should deliver:

  • Reliability. Free network backup solutions should guarantee the proper execution of all the necessary backup and/or recovery processes, to keep your data integrity intact
  • Ease of use. A proper solution should perform smoothly, even in complex situations and when working with massive internal systems, keeping backup and recover processes efficient and agile
  • Secure. One of the main tasks of the best free network backup software should not be not only the protection of users’ data, but also the protection of the backup volumes that contain all of that data, and more. It is especially important considering that being adequately secure is a critical element of a network backup system’s capability
  • Easy to implement. The solution should be capable of working with heterogeneous environments regarding hardware, software, processes, and so on
  • Capable of adapting. Being flexible to fit a company’s specific backup needs is a key characteristic that makes a great network backup and recovery solution

The main disadvantage of not having a proper network backup solution in place is of course the absence of a contingency plan if anything detrimental happens to data. In many cases, the results are catastrophic to a company’s well-being.

Network backup is a complex system that aims to avoid overloading an organizations’ infrastructure while performing its range of backup and/or recovery tasks. Since a network is typically a complex entity in its own right, no part of it  should be overloaded in any case by a data backup attempt from your network backup solution.

There are two main ways of preventing data loss regarding storing backups in specific locations: local locations (onsite), and remote ones (offsite). Their purpose remains the same: to keep the backed up data safe and sound, even if the original system loses some or all of its data.

Local locations are often used as a place to save backed up information within the physical equipment that is located in the same physical space and can be quickly accessed via a LAN network. Remote locations on the other hand, allow companies to have a separated and independent storage for their backups in case of a massive data loss within the LAN. Cloud storages are one way of achieving this, and are available from many different providers, such as Amazon, Microsoft and Google, to less well-known ones, whether private or public.

A network itself is a complicated system that can grow quite rapidly over time. There are three main types of the equipment that are part of the network:

  • Physical equipment itself (phones, PCs, servers, and so on)
  • Physical wiring
  • Interconnection devices (firewalls, routers, modems, etc.)

There are a variety of features and options that the best free network backup software may use in an attempt to make backup and recovery jobs easier, faster and more secure. Some of these may be:

  • Deduplication
  • Packet size and number reduction
  • Different backup type execution
  • Compression
  • Bandwidth management
  • Backup volume protection
  • Data replication, and more

There’s a plethora of different backup solutions out there that can perform network backup operations. One of those solutions is Bacula Community – a free open source multifunctional solution capable of performing a number of different backup solutions and/or backup types. You can find out more about Bacula Community and its specific capabilities here

TORONTO, ON – August 4, 2020 – /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leader in backup and recovery software that delivers comprehensive repository cyber protection, today highlighted findings from a 2020 report1 by the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) titled 2020 Managed Services Landscape. The report reveals service provider preferences toward subscription IT consumption models, including cloud-based data protection.

In the report, a sample of 375 MSPs were surveyed on several subjects related to the subject of cloud managed services, including average length of cloud managed services contracts, sales cycle length, renewal rates, follow-on business tied to renewals, profit margins and more. Below is a brief summary of results from the report.

  • Average length of an MSP’s cloud-based managed services contract: 1 year, 32%; 2 years, 20%; 3 years, 24%
  • Cloud managed services sales cycle lengths: Less than 2 weeks, 8%; 2-4 weeks, 31%; 5-8 weeks, 32%
  • Higher renewal rate for public cloud managed services compared to other managed services: Smaller MSPs, 14%; Larger MSPs, 45%
  • Follow-on and/or expansion business from cloud-based managed services: Smaller MSPs, 34%; Larger MSPs, 46%

Subscription-based data protection falls within the category of cloud-based managed services. As one of the industry’s leading providers of secure backup software, Asigra offers a low-touch, cybersecurity-enabled cloud-based data recovery software, backed by a large installed base of public, private, and hybrid cloud backup deployments worldwide. Designed for MSPs, Asigra’s cybersecurity-enabled platform optimizes the backup process using a hybrid cloud approach to protect end-customer data. The company’s software is flexible enough to fit into any environment, simple to install and manage, but most importantly, prevents bad actors from infecting and deleting backups.

The software ensures safe, secure and reliable backup and data recovery with the industry’s first zero-day Attack-Loop™ preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and multi-factor authentication (MFA) for a full defensive suite against advanced cyber threats.

“Today’s MSP requires a smarter and more efficient approach to minimize operational overhead and infrastructure costs associated with IT service delivery,” said Eran Farajun, EVP, Asigra. ”As highlighted in the ESG report, cloud-based managed services provide that, helping MSPs benefit from this highly efficient and profitable service delivery model.”

Radically reducing attack surfaces while delivering the highest standard of security, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition keeps critical systems running with maximum operational assurance and data security through complete asset protection

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – August 5, 2020 –/BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today the launch of Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition, a full disk image backup solution designed specifically for ‘no internet’ air-gapped networks. Based on the same code base as Acronis SCS’ Department of Defense Information Network Approved Products List (DoDIN APL) certified solution, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition delivers complete protection for critical assets and data across the most sensitive national security, industrial, and financial environments, including weapons testing sites, development labs, training simulators, deployed military elements, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and industrial control systems, and more.

The air-gap approach leveraged in this solution is a cybersecurity measure for securing a computer network by physically isolating it from other networks, such as the public internet or any other unsecured local area network. According to research from Cybersecurity Ventures, this adds an additional level of security against outside threats, including ransomware attacks, which are expected to strike every 11 seconds and reach $20 billion in damage costs by 2021.

With zero integration or outbound connection to online services, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition radically reduces an environment’s attack surface while minimizing the time IT teams spend addressing false alerts and failed outbound communications – common headaches when using a non-hardened solution in an air-gapped network. Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition features FIPS-validated encryption and RSA key generation, as well as Intel-pioneered, hardware-based random number generation methods to ensure maximum entropy.

Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition is Common Criteria certified with FIPS 140-2 certification in progress. Additionally, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition has been reviewed and tested by multiple third parties, and its source code supply chain is managed through exact dependency mapping. It is a solution organizations can trust to provide reliable protection of mission critical assets and data without adding unnecessary complexity.

“Modern organizations are well aware that today’s threat landscape is increasingly sophisticated and dangerous. For organizations in especially sensitive fields, dealing with especially sensitive data, informational security is not only important – it’s essential,” said Acronis Founder and CEO Serguei “SB” Beloussov. “With our new hardened solution, these organizations gain the robust cyber protection capabilities that Acronis is known for, with specialized cybersecurity enhancements to ensure all of their workloads are protected.”

This new hardened solution provides complete asset protection and preserves timely decision-making in the field and beyond by keeping critical systems up and running in the face of hardware failure, minimizing recovery times, providing the flexibility to restore standardized and unique images to field devices via a bootable media feature, and ensuring users can build, test, deploy, and protect complex integrated systems from one user-friendly management console.

“Unlike other backup and disaster recovery products on the market, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition is designed specifically for air-gapped environments: eliminating the need for connectivity, integrations, outbound connections, or unnecessary access points that expand a network’s attack surface,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, Chief Cyber Officer and Chief Operating Officer at Acronis. “Beyond that, however, our new solution also streamlines backup and recovery operations. IT personnel can now regain hours of time they previously spent responding to failed connections and false alarms.”

Performing repetitive yet crucial tasks on sensitive systems – like full disk image and file-level backup – is a daily reality for technical personnel operating in air-gapped environments across all high-secure businesses and government organizations. Security is paramount, considering backup solutions must touch everything in a network, from endpoints and storage to file shares and servers. With that in mind, Acronis Cyber Backup SCS Hardened Edition provides the exact capabilities highly specialized security personnel need to easily and securely perform these tasks on both legacy and modern systems – all at an affordable price point.

Cortex XSOAR Marketplace enables organizations to discover, share and consume security orchestration innovations from a global ecosystem to scale up automation

Minneapolis, MN — Aug 4, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider risk detection and response, today announced that the Code42 Insider Threat Remediation content pack is now available on the Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR Marketplace, the industry’s most comprehensive security orchestration marketplace. Code42 joins a select group of Cortex XSOAR Marketplace launch partners who have developed content packs that help solve the toughest security challenges for customers with end-to-end automation. The Code42 content pack on the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace provides customers with a playbook that automates and speeds insider threat incident response and remediation.

https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/cortex/xsoar

The Code42 Insider Threat Remediation content pack is an integrated offering that enables security teams to scale, standardize and automate certain insider threat incident response processes based on preset triggers within Cortex XSOAR. A common trigger includes an email sent from a human capital management (HCM) system, indicating an employee has resigned or is leaving the organization. The content pack provides security teams with a configurable lookback of an employee’s historic file movements, including browser uploads and cloud sync activity, and then automatically generates an alert to the employee’s manager for review. This detailed information can be used to easily determine sanctioned or unsanctioned activity, speed investigations and enable security teams to take a right-sized approach to incident response.

“A robust, open ecosystem is at the heart of Cortex XSOAR. We are proud to welcome Code42 to the industry’s largest SOAR ecosystem,” said Rishi Bhargava, vice president of product strategy, Cortex XSOAR at Palo Alto Networks. “Having Code42 available on the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace will enable our shared customers to rapidly scale automation and further improve their security posture.”

“We are thrilled to be part of this exciting Cortex XSOAR Marketplace launch with a content pack uniquely focused on addressing insider threat,” said Ananth Appathurai, Code42′s senior vice president of strategic partnerships and ecosystem. “Too many security organizations primarily address external threats and regulatory compliance with their tech stacks and processes. With largely remote workforces that frequently are off-network, security often doesn’t have the visibility, processes and tool strategy it needs to detect when sensitive or proprietary data is put at risk from the inside. Our playbooks within Cortex XSOAR give security teams the advantage they need to surface risk and accelerate incident response to insider threats throughout the employee lifecycle.”

Cortex XSOAR is the industry’s first extended security orchestration, automation and response platform that empowers security teams by simplifying and harmonizing security operations across their entire enterprise. As a native extension of Cortex XSOAR, the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace enables customers to discover, share and consume orchestration innovations contributed by the industry’s largest SOAR community.

About Code42
Code42, the global leader in cloud-based endpoint data security and recovery, protects more than 47,000 organizations worldwide. Code42 enables IT and security teams to centrally manage and protect critical data for some of the most recognized brands in business and education. From monitoring endpoint data movement and use, to meeting data privacy regulations, to simply and rapidly recovering from data incidents no matter the cause, Code42 is central to any organization’s data security strategy.

Metallic SaaS Data Protection, an offering from Commvault, Named 2020 SaaS Awards Finalist

Tinton Falls, N.J. – August 5, 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 that Metallic™, Commvault’s enterprise-grade SaaS data protection portfolio, is a finalist in the 2020 SaaS Awards Program in the “Best SaaS Newcomer” category. Highlighting solutions that appeared in the last 12 months, finalists in the Best SaaS Newcomer category have provided evidence of innovation along with positive reception and clear market demand.

Commvault SaaS Award Finalist

Launched in October 2019, Metallic delivers industry-leading data protection technology with the ease and agility of SaaS delivery, getting companies up and running in protecting critical business data within minutes. Supporting a breadth of workloads, including VMware and SQL databases, endpoints, and Office 365, Metallic lets companies of any size easily and affordably back up and recover their critical on-premises, cloud-based, and hybrid file and application data – while reducing manual effort for backup administration.

Since its launch, Metallic has received strong feedback from customers, partners, and industry analysts and media, especially surrounding its Endpoint Backup & Recovery offer, which directly supports customers as they navigate the current unique IT environment with the widespread need for remote work. Through this offer, Metallic has provided customers free data protection for up to 1,000 laptops along with unlimited Azure storage, from April until September 1.

“Software-as-a-service’s force for positive disruption never seems to abate, with seemingly unending solutions for modern business,” said James Williams, Head of Operations, SaaS Awards. “This year is of course a special case, with SaaS not only at the forefront of remodelling existing business processes, but also agilely responding with pioneering solutions to unavoidable global disruptions. Indeed, SaaS technologies are now celebrated as providing new and inventive ways for organizations to perform what might have once seemed simple tasks in a changing international landscape.

Organizations around the world were unprepared for COVID-19′s impact. Severalnines helps companies stay prepared when crisis strikes with their end-to-end disaster recovery solutions

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – August 4, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything, it’s that it is a necessity for businesses to modernize, to innovate, and be prepared when crisis looms. For the businesses that are reeling from the economic effects of the pandemic, the value of disaster preparedness is more clear than ever. Severalnines offers businesses of all sizes the opportunity to stay prepared for disaster and secure their crucial, open source database infrastructure; the recent cluster-to-cluster replication feature completes the end-to-end disaster recovery features found in ClusterControl, reducing the complexity, expense, and management of multi-cloud Disaster Recovery.

Businesses are increasingly turning to hybrid, multi-cloud systems for their business data. However, management functions like backup, security, disaster recovery, and compliance are often a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. This can result in long recovery times and even data loss in the event of a disaster. A solution that is able to orchestrate all the moving parts, in an automated fashion, can significantly improve recovery point (RPO) and recovery time (RTO) objectives.

Cluster-to-cluster replication gives businesses the ability to improve disaster tolerance for critical applications by providing automated, off-site, database replication (for instance to the cloud). This type of redundancy is a recommended practice for most use cases, but essential for critical services and applications. A local data center can suffer a complete outage, possibly from a hacking attack. A secondary site provides businesses with a way to recover operations and core business functions in a matter of minutes in some cases.

“Flexible multi-site database replication with an industry-leading disaster recovery management toolset offers considerably lower RPOs than traditional offsite shipping of backups,” said Vinay Joosery, CEO & Co-Founder of Severalnines. “The latest version of ClusterControl helps organizations automate the deployment and management of these sophisticated database setups, especially around switchover, failover and failback.”

Large companies with the budget to develop their own disaster recovery plan often turn to the type of systems that utilize multiple failsafes, as the consequences of unplanned and unexpected downtime can be costly, even catastrophic. Severalnines advocates for conventional approaches when dealing with crises — often meaning preparedness and maintaining backups — as disaster scenarios can’t be avoided, only planned for.

About Severalnines
Severalnines provides automation and management software for database clusters. We help companies deploy their databases in any environment, and manage all operational aspects to achieve high-scale availability. Severalnines’ products are used by developers and administrators of all skill levels to provide the full ‘deploy, manage, monitor, scale’ database cycle, thus freeing them from the complexity and learning curves that are typically associated with highly available database clusters. Severalnines is often called the “anti-startup” as it is entirely self-funded by its founders. The company has enabled tens of thousands of deployments to date via its popular product ClusterControl for customers like BT, Orange, Cisco, HP, HP, Paytrail, Ping Identity, and Technicolor. Severalnines is a private company headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden with offices in Singapore, Japan and the United States.
