Wasabi becomes technology’s newest unicorn with backing from L2 Point, Cedar Pine, Cerberus, Fidelity Management & Research Company, and others

BOSTON MA — September 27, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced it has achieved unicorn status following $250 million in new funding. Wasabi raised $125 million in Series D equity led by L2 Point Management with participation from Cedar Pine; an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management; and returning investors including Fidelity Management & Research Company and Forestay Capital, bringing the company’s valuation to over $1.1 billion. Wasabi also expanded its existing debt facility with MGG Investment Group to $125 million. Barclays acted as sole placement agent on the transaction.

Wasabi provides fast, affordable, and highly reliable cloud data storage for businesses all over the world at 1/5th the cost of large hyperscale providers or on-premises storage with no charges for egress or API requests, and no complex tiering. The company’s revenues more than doubled from 2020-2021, and Wasabi now has more than 40,000 customers in over 100 countries, 13,000 partners, 250+ global employees and 13 storage regions across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The new equity will drive expansion into additional vertical markets and geographies, enhance Wasabi’s channel partnerships, and scale the company’s go-to-market team and global brand strategies. Meanwhile, the debt will be used to finance capital equipment and infrastructure in Wasabi’s storage regions around the world, and to invest in Wasabi’s technology capabilities to lay the groundwork for a new generation of cloud storage architecture.

“Closing a large up round in this environment speaks to the spectacular growth of Wasabi, the magnitude of the cloud storage opportunity, and our leadership as the industry’s largest pure-play cloud storage vendor. At Wasabi we focus on just one thing: cloud storage. We do it better than anyone else in the industry. Because of this singular focus, our team has achieved best-in-class performance and security at the lowest prices in the industry,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Wasabi Technologies.

Kerstin Dittmar, Managing Partner of lead investor L2 Point, will join Wasabi’s Board of Directors. “Wasabi provides a game-changing product that offers customers a simpler, faster, and significantly more economical solution to their cloud data storage needs. We believe this capital raise will allow Wasabi to continue to expand its offering across additional services and geographies to meet their global customers’ needs,” said Dittmar.

“We are proud to partner with Wasabi to provide innovative solutions in cloud storage and security,” added Sam Barnett, Ph.D., Executive Chairman of Cedar Pine. “The importance of Wasabi’s technology is increasing in every industry.”

Kevin Griffin, CEO of MGG Investment Group, also commented, “We seek to partner with best-in-class entrepreneurs and companies and are excited to continue supporting Wasabi Technologies and their global expansion.”

In addition to the industry-leading performance of Wasabi hot cloud storage, the company partners with over 350 technology companies, including most of the world’s leading backup, disaster recovery, and surveillance companies. Wasabi is used to store data across a wide range of industries, including professional sports, energy and natural resources, finance, surveillance, education, manufacturing, consumer technology, healthcare, scientific research, and media and entertainment.

“As our data needs continue to evolve, from player analytics, IoT, digital assets and even security, this presents an enormous learning opportunity for the organization,” said Brian Shield, senior vice president and CTO of the Boston Red Sox. “Wasabi provides a cost-effective cloud-based solution that enables us to retrieve content quickly and improve the level of video analysis and production we do here at the Red Sox.”

Moving from legacy backup solution to Veeam saves company millions of dollars

COLUMBUS, OH – September 26, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced that HBC, a holding company of investments and businesses that operates at the intersection of technology, retail operations and real estate, has chosen Veeam Availability Suite™ to centralize data protection on premises and across clouds. Veeam helps HBC ensure business continuity, meet internal governance compliance requirements and protect against ransomware. Additionally, HBC saved more than $1 million in a one-time capital expenditure and saves $600,000 in recurring operational expenses annually.

From the fur trade to Fifth Avenue, HBC has been in business for more than 350 years. North America’s longest continually operating company began in 1670 with a royal charter from England to seek a northwest passage to the Pacific Ocean, occupy the lands adjacent to Hudson Bay and set up commerce. Today, HBC is a legend in the retail world. It’s the majority owner of iconic e-commerce companies such as Saks, a leading online destination for luxury fashion, Saks OFF 5TH, a premier luxury off-price e-commerce company and The Bay, a Canadian e-commerce marketplace. HBC’s legacy is providing an unrivaled customer experience.

“To improve upon the customer experience, we began a digital transformation to accelerate our e-commerce business,” said Ope Bakare, Chief Technical Officer, HBC. “Operating multiple data centers didn’t make sense in our customer-centric world, so we adopted a multi-cloud strategy.”

As HBC moved IT systems and data to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure, Bakare said he and his colleagues discovered something unfortunate about the legacy backup solution. It began to show signs of failing. “Failing backups can lead to downtime, and downtime can lead to big problems in retail,” he explained. “Downtime can drastically impact a company’s logistics ecosystem, leading to a domino effect that can break the business. We have a complex logistics ecosystem, so keeping it healthy and functioning is an absolute priority. An hour of downtime could cost our company millions of dollars in logistics and shipping.”

Matthew Pick, Senior Director of Cloud Architecture at HBC, said there was another challenge with the legacy backup solution. “It was inflexible and didn’t integrate with our multi-cloud workloads. We began using backup tools provided by AWS and Azure, but they came with constraints like operational overhead, which is time consuming. We needed one flexible, powerful and scalable solution to protect every workload everywhere.”

Veeam backs up 80 TB of data across more than 2,000 instances in AWS and Azure to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and Azure Blob Storage. Veeam also back up 40 TB of data across 14 physical machines on premises to Dell EMC Data Domain.

“One of the things I love most about Veeam is operational consistency,” Bakare explained. “We can protect every asset wherever it resides in a consistent way. Veeam takes the complication and noise out of data protection, allowing our engineers to focus on innovating for the business rather than worrying about backups.”

Pick said operational consistency also allows for data retention to be a shared responsibility across teams. “Operational consistency places the onus on each business unit that wants to protect data,” he continued. “If they tag their VMs correctly, Veeam will back them up, without question.”

Pick is referring to Veeam’s fully customizable policies that automate backup and data lifecycle management. He said policy-based automation also provides an easy way for the IT team to show each business unit how much data protection will cost. “Veeam enables us to have more productive conversations with each unit so we can set expectations appropriately. We also have visibility into our overall spend, and this is where the Veeam Universal License comes in handy. We can move licenses across business units and workloads to maximize our spend.”

Bakare added that policy-based automation also ensures business continuity, supports internal governance compliance requirements and protects against ransomware. “We had been going through a process to validate and close gaps in our business continuity strategy, so Veeam’s ability to use tagging for cloud backup was a massive step forward for us. Tagging also ensures internal governance compliance and helps us fight ransomware. Veeam lets us separate our backups from our IT systems with a barrier, so if ransomware strikes our IT systems, our backups are safe.”

Bakare said Veeam saves money, too. “Before we began the cloud migration we were closing in on a hardware and software refresh. Since Veeam is hardware, software and cloud agnostic, we avoided the refresh, saving more than $1 million in a one-time capital expenditure and $600,000 in recurring operating expenses annually. That’s a significant savings.”

Druva offers a fully managed solution with consumption-based pricing, global deployment, and multi-layered security, resulting in up to a 50 percent reduction in total cost of ownership.

Additionally, this summer Druva introduced new cyber-attack readiness innovations that enable organizations to better assess their security risks and accelerate incident response.

“Druva is at the forefront of driving practical innovations in the cloud,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer of Business Intelligence Group. “The cloud is now part of the fabric of society, and we are thrilled that our volunteer judges were able to help promote innovative services, organizations and executives.”

The Business Intelligence Group was founded with the mission of recognizing true talent and superior performance in the business world. Unlike other industry and business award programs, business executives—those with experience and knowledge—judge the programs.

Although progress has been made, organisations are still paying out

LONDON, UK – Sept. 27, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — New research from Databarracks reveals 44% of organisations that suffered a ransomware attack, paid the ransom. 34% recovered from backups, while 22% used ransomware decryption tools.

The findings come from the Databarracks 2022 Data Health Check. Running since 2008, the annual report surveys over 400 IT decision-makers in the UK on Ransomware, Cyber, Backup, Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity.

Managing Director of Databarracks, James Watts commented: “From the perspective of the victim, it’s understandable why you might pay a ransom. You can’t service customers, you can’t take orders and losses quickly accumulate. The costs of downtime can quickly exceed the ransom.

“Organisations might think that by paying the ransom it resolves the problem more quickly so they can get back to business as usual. There are several reasons why this approach is flawed.

“Firstly, there’s no guarantee that you will get your data back. Secondly, it’s quite common for organisations to be attacked again once criminals know they are an easy target. Lastly, it sends the wrong message. By paying, you are indirectly encouraging the criminals, showing their tactics work.

“With the right preparation and guidance however, you can recover your data, and never have to pay the ransom.

“Patch and update systems regularly, train staff on spotting phishing emails, and maintain the principle of least privilege.

“Immutable storage and physical or logical air-gaps will protect backups from also being changed or encrypted. If you do suffer an attack, your backups are your last line of defence.

“When you need to recover, identify your most recent, clean recovery point and carry out isolated, sandbox recoveries. Check to make sure no further ransomware is present before starting the full restoration. Lastly, test your Disaster Recovery Plan so know the process and you are confident you can recover quickly and effectively.

“This year’s survey also showed a growing number of organisations have a policy for whether they would pay out on a ransomware attack. 68% of organisations had a policy in place, up from 54% last year. The data demonstrates an increasing awareness and better preparation for ransomware attacks.”

It ensures bulletproof ransomware protection, accelerates migration to the hybrid cloud, helps meet recovery time and point objectives (RTO / RPO) while reducing cost and complexity and  protects workloads whether physical, virtual, NAS, IaaS, SaaS, or Kubernetes. “According to the Veeam Data Protection Trends Report 2022, organizations aim have 52% of their workloads in the cloud by 2024. We’ll be demonstrating how Veeam Platform will enable them to achieve this with confidence and know that, no matter where their workloads exist, our clients can control, backup and recover them anywhere, on-premises or in the cloud,” said Rizk.

Over the past year, Veeam has unveiled more than 30 product updates. Trade attendees visiting the Veeam stand D-20, Hall 7 # at GITEX can expect to learn more about the following innovations among others:

  • Veeam Backup & Replication™ v12: Released as the most advanced data protection solution for Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes workloads, Veeam Backup & Replication v11 has been downloaded by more than 850,000 users. The company has continued innovation and expansion of its expansive feature set with V12 by further hardening the capabilities customers need in today’s ever-changing IT ecosystem. The new version, planned for GA in the next few months, expands the ability to reduce business risk through improved data and systems security recoverability at scale.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v7: As the Microsoft 365 backup market leader, with over 11M users under paid contract, the new version will include enterprise-grade monitoring and reporting capabilities as a result of integration with Veeam ONE, helping to keep systems and infrastructure running smoothly thanks to built-in intelligence.
  • Veeam Backup for Salesforce: Following the success of its Microsoft 365 product, the company will provide a demo of Veeam Backup for Salesforce, a much sought-after addition to Veeam’s SaaS portfolio. With the ability to back up in the cloud and on-premises, the new offering eliminates the risk of losing Salesforce data and metadata.
  • Kasten by Veeam K10 v5.0: The most complete enterprise data management solution to date purpose-built for Kubernetes. This latest release is focused on delivering a comprehensive risk management strategy, streamlined CI/CD pipelines and new ecosystem advancement details that optimize and de-risk Kubernetes investments. These advancements all aim to help the expanding Kubernetes community work more efficiently and securely in cloud native applications.

Veeam will also look to engage and enter into high level discussions with its ecosystem of channel partners at GITEX. Providing advice to the channel community, Kinda Baydoun, Manager of Channels, Distribution and Alliances – Middle East & CIS at Veeam commented: “The cloud market continues to expand, and we are seeing more and more hyperscalers investing in the Middle East region by building their own in-country datacentres. I believe a challenge our partners will face will be around having the right skills within their IT staff to help customers meet their aim of accelerating their journeys to the cloud. Many channel partners are still adopting the traditional model of being a one-stop shop for a number of vendors. This model is no longer viable in today’s market, as customers look for specialist partners that are experts and advisors. Channel companies need to invest in building these capabilities if they are to remain competitive and relevant.”

Veeam will have its own dedicated booth in Hall 7 stand number D-20 at DWTC. To schedule a meeting with the Veeam team at GITEX, partners and customers are invited to register here – https://go.veeam.com/meet-us-gitex-2022

BOULDER, Colo. – Sept. 22, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Spectra Logic, a global leader in data management and data storage solutions, today announced a collaboration with the iRODS Consortium to create a joint solution built upon Spectra Vail® software, Spectra BlackPearl® S3 storage and the iRODS data management platform. The combined solution enables customers to use industry-standard cloud interfaces for on-premises disk and on-premises glacier* storage with object tape, while unlocking multi-site/multi-cloud capabilities.

The iRODS integration with BlackPearl S3 allows organizations to leverage the performance and cost benefits of on-premises glacier storage as disk or tape to access “cold” data and automate workflows, while the integration with Vail provides access to cloud services across multiple clouds. Spectra Vail software and BlackPearl S3 storage have been tested with the iRODS S3 storage resource plugin to fully support the Amazon® S3 abstraction that iRODS delivers. The new functionality is available as part of the iRODS 4.2.11 release.

“Organizations that need an on-prem glacier tier will see many benefits with the interoperability between BlackPearl S3 and the iRODS data management platform,” said David Feller, Spectra Logic vice president of product management and solutions engineering. “Organizations will be able to take full advantage of on-prem storage and the public, private and hybrid cloud by leveraging the Vail and iRODS integration.”

“The combined Spectra Logic and iRODS solution will enable organizations that rely heavily on tape to archive petabytes of valuable digital data economically and efficiently in a glacier-like tier,” said Terrell Russell, executive director of the iRODS Consortium. “We look forward to a lasting collaboration with Spectra Logic that will help our mutual customers drive innovation and accelerate business results.”

Combination of these three companies plus U.S.-based OffsiteDataSync creates a global, one-stop provider, featuring the most complete and rapid data recovery of ultra-secure backups for any size organization

SAN ANTONIO AND OSLO, NORWAY – Sept. 20, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Following the integration of its September 2021 acquisition of KeepItSafe, LiveVault and OffsiteDataSync from J2 Global, Jungle Disk has rebranded as CyberFortress, a global company providing managed data backups built to prevent business disruption through rapid recovery. The synergy of these combined products, services and specialists enables CyberFortress to provide a level of security and speed unique to the industry. For customers, the burden of managing such a complex and critical function can now be shifted to the credentialed backup and recovery specialists at CyberFortress.

Once a simple nightly task, data backup has become a daunting endeavor. Downtime is unacceptable, so recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPOs) must be measured in minutes. Data is everywhere — in SaaS apps, laptops, servers, smartphones and the cloud. And the threat of cyberattacks, especially ransomware, has never been higher. For too many companies, backup has become disorganized and incomplete, requiring multiple vendors with different specialties, which must then be managed by the customer.

CyberFortress provides comprehensive backup, Disaster Recovery (DR) and recovery, with coverage for all of a company’s data protection needs, no matter its size. All backups are kept safe in a combination of highly secure, geo-separated data backup locations, and recovery can take as little as 15 minutes.

CyberFortress is also differentiated by the quality and training of its people. The company’s specialists follow a Four-Step Backup™ system, beginning with the creation of a data recovery map to understand what data a customer has, where it’s located, and what RTOs and RPOs are necessary. After building and executing on a custom backup and recovery plan, CyberFortress then continuously backs up, monitors and tests to help ensure data is ready for recovery at a moment’s notice. Customers will never have to wonder whether their data is recoverable because CyberFortress keeps them constantly informed with Continuous Readiness Reporting.

Should a customer need to recover data, CyberFortress’ Rapid Recovery Force™ members are available directly by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year – no matter where or when a data emergency occurs.

“We are building CyberFortress to address a pressing need in the market: no single company is providing comprehensive data protection for all different backup and recovery needs, so IT departments end up with a hodgepodge of different vendors to manage. From our headquarters in Texas to our facilities on the other side of the world in Australia, CyberFortress provides a single source for the world’s fastest, most pain-free recovery of all a company’s data, whether it’s on-premises, virtualized, in endpoints or in SaaS services. We protect it all.” — Bret Piatt, CEO of CyberFortress.

About CyberFortress
CyberFortress is a global company that makes it simple to fully back up and rapidly recover all lost or stolen data to prevent damage and disruption to organizations of all sizes. Data is stored in secure, geo-redundant facilities, and our suite of solutions enables our data recovery specialists to create a custom, comprehensive solution for each customer. Whenever a customer needs data recovery, they receive live, personalized support from a credentialed specialist, every hour of every day of the year.

Company Offers Quick & Easy Back-up Solutions and New Device for Pet Lovers

ATLANTA, GA – September 21, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Losing a photo is like losing a moment in time. Unfortunately, billions of photos are lost every year, and the Cloud or other backup programs are not always reliable. Picture Keeper, pioneered by Simplified IT Products, is devoted to preserving precious memories with hand-held devices that search and copy digital photos, videos and files from the iPhone, Android, tablets, PCs, and Macs. The company is encouraging consumers to participate in National Save Your Photos Day on Sept. 24 and beyond.

“I was inspired to create a solution for backing up photos when a close friend lost all of her digital images during a lightning storm,” said CEO and Founder Matt Stanchie. “It’s incredibly emotional to lose your photos and videos – they are the keepsakes of our lives that we should always have to reflect on and remember.”

According to Phutorial, the typical person takes 20.2 photos per day, averaging 2,000 photos saved on their Smartphone. For backup jobs of all sizes, Picture Keeper can store up to 1TB or 250,000 photos. They are perfect for those who:

  • Continuously run out of storage
  • Don’t want to rely on or use the Cloud
  • Need to transfer files to a new device
  • Have photos scattered in many locations and wish to organize them in one comprehensive place
  • Need a safe backup solution

Its latest device – Pet Photo Saver – captures the memories pet owners have with their animals. According to iHeartRadio, the average pet owner takes 400 pet photos each year and surprisingly, more of their photos are of their pets than their children or partner. The product offers facial recognition technology that can identify dogs, cats, horses, birds and reptiles, and only downloads those photos.

The simple, hand-held, plug-and-play devices do not capture duplicate photos, pick-up where the last job left off each time the device is used, and do not require Internet. Both devices make photo sharing easy via the apps.

“Continuously saving your photos and videos from your devices should be as important of a maintenance routine as changing your car’s oil,” noted Stanchie. “With more than 3 million devices sold, our customers have saved billions of photos using Picture Keeper. We’re committed to continuing to create awareness on the importance of backing up your images. Everyone should take a few moments on Sept. 24 and beyond to protect their memories.”

To encourage people to participate in National Save Your Photos Day, Picture Keeper will offer 25 percent off total purchase with code – Memories25.

About Simplified IT Products
Simplified IT Products, located in Marietta, Ga., is a product development firm specializing in consumer technology solutions since 2008. Its primary product, Picture Keeper, offers backup photo storage devices with the ability to download and save photos from a laptop, tablet, or Smartphone.

A first among data protection vendors, the new cyber deception service detects and contains ransomware threats

TINTON FALLS, NJ – September 21, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Commvault, a global enterprise leader in data management across on-premises, cloud, and SaaS environments, today announced the general availability of Metallic® ThreatWise™ an early warning system that proactively surfaces unknown and zero-day threats to minimize compromised data and business impact.

According to Enterprise Strategy Group, only 12% of the IT directors surveyed indicated confidence in having the proper tools and necessary location agnostic protection to secure data equally across on-premises and cloud.1

With ThreatWise, Commvault is further defining data security with an early warning that no other vendor in this space provides. It uses decoys to proactively bait bad actors into engaging fake resources, spot threats in production environments, and arm businesses with tools to keep data safe. Simultaneously, Commvault is also extending its machine learning and critical threat detection and security capabilities to its broader platform, which is available today.

“In surveying enterprise IT directors with direct knowledge and influence on their company’s data security strategies, the results we found were eye opening. It is very clear that many IT teams do not have adequate tools in place to detect ransomware attacks on production environments early enough in the attack chain to neutralize stealthy cyber-attacks before they cause harm,” said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst and Fellow, Enterprise Strategy Group. “Ransomware has revolved around encryption for a long time, but newer extortion techniques like exfiltration go beyond rapidly spreading malware, and data recovery alone cannot help if sensitive business data is leaked to the Dark Web.”

“Data recovery is important, but alone it’s not enough. Just a few hours with an undetected bad actor in your systems can be catastrophic,” said Ranga Rajagopalan, Senior Vice President, Products, Commvault. “By integrating ThreatWise into the Metallic SaaS portfolio, we provide customers with a proactive, early warning system that bolsters their zero-loss strategy by intercepting a threat before it impacts your business.”

Availability and to Learn More
Metallic ThreatWise, along with Commvault’s latest platform update features are available now. To learn more, join us at Commvault Connections, to take part in live demos and engage in industry sessions.

Our Intelligent Data Services help your organization do amazing things with your data by transforming how you protect, store, and use it.

New Detection Protects Organizations Against IP Theft from Insiders

Minneapolis, MN — September 20, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today announced it has enhanced source code exfiltration detection within its Code42® Incydr™ product to specifically support Git push commands to personal or unsanctioned code repositories, whether GitHub, Bitbucket, Azure DevOps, and other Git-supported platforms. Incydr detects and prioritizes data transfer to locations other than your sanctioned locations and then alerts security analysts with the context they need to take swift action through an appropriate response control. This capability is available for Windows, Mac, Linux and VDI environments.

“Tools like Git and GitHub are absolutely critical to the software development cycle. Unfortunately, they also present major challenges from a security perspective. Security teams need a way to see what unsanctioned Git activity is occurring, and quickly respond when source code is going to an untrusted location – all while continuing to remain unobtrusive for development teams,” said Rob Juncker, CTO at Code42.

For many organizations, especially leading technology, medical device and software companies, source code is their single most valuable intellectual property (IP), to which insiders – malicious or not – present the biggest risk. Many software developers and engineering teams utilize Git to create source code. Much of their Git usage is sanctioned as part of their everyday work – including creating and updating code and pushing it to corporate or open source repositories. However, engineers who want to exfiltrate source code could also use Git to send proprietary source code to personal or unsanctioned code repository services.

The theft of IP is a vast, and likely underreported, problem for organizations working to retain their source code. In fact, telemetry data from Incydr shows that the volume of exfiltrated source code increased 28% during 2021. Furthermore, the most recent update from the Commission on the Theft of American Intellectual Property estimates the annual cost of U.S. intellectual property theft at between $180 billion and $540 billion.

Learn more about Code42’s Insider Risk Management Offering

Code42 Incydr: The Industry’s Leading Data Security Product for Exfiltration
Incydr is an Insider Risk Management solution that provides the visibility, context and controls needed to stop data leak and IP theft. Organizations utilize Incydr to detect and respond to data exposure and exfiltration from corporate computer, cloud and email systems. It deploys in hours so security teams can address material risk to the business in a matter of days and drive the secure work habits needed to decrease how often employees put data at risk in the future.

Code42 Instructor: Education Led Insider Risk Response
Instructor™ improves Insider Risk awareness by focusing on the creation of holistic, security-oriented cultures. The solution delivers actionable, hyper-targeted and bite-sized lessons to end-users when they’re needed most, helping to change security behavior for the long term. The Instructor solution helps organizations rapidly mature their Insider Risk Management programs by incorporating data-driven Insider Risk behavioral guidance for end-users.

Combining the Power of Incydr and Instructor
Instructor works in tandem with Incydr, allowing security, compliance and education teams to immediately send corrective lessons triggered by employee actions that create risk for the business. For example, when Incydr flags file movement to an untrusted location, like an unauthorized cloud application, an Instructor video specifically explaining the correct activity is sent to educate the employee in real-time through the Incydr solution.

Code42 Services: Measure, Manage, Mitigate
We believe IRM technology is simpler and faster to deploy than other technologies such as DLP and CASB, but it does require a strategy and mindset shift. Insider Risk Management isn’t only about data – it’s about a company’s employees and culture. Code42 IRM Services are designed to help organizations establish an efficient and effective IRM program rooted in transparency, training and technology. Code42’s services take a collaborative approach to helping organizations develop, operationalize, and mature an end-to-end IRM program.

Over 3,600 customers with 99% on annual M&S

Marlborough, Mass., September 20, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that the company achieved a +81 Net Promoter score (NPS). NPS measures the loyalty of customers to a company. NPS scores are measured with a single-question survey and reported with a number from the range -100 to +100. NPS is often held up as the gold standard customer experience metric. The score is a measure of whether current customers would recommend ExaGrid to a friend or colleague.

This score further sets ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage apart as a leader in its sector, due it is differentiated product architecture, as ExaGrid offers the largest scale-out system in the industry—comprised of 32 EX84 appliances that can take in up to a 2.7PB full backup in a single system, which is 50% larger than any other solution with aggressive deduplication, in addition to ExaGrid’s innovative channel programs and its exceptional customer support.

This +81 score truly reflects our commitment and knowledge of backup storage.”

Unifying over 200 VM backup methods reduced operational management load, resulting in an enhanced user experience and increased resilency

JAPAN, Sept. 15, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, announced today that KDDI Corporation, a company engaged in a wide range of telecommunications and other businesses, chose Veeam Backup & Replication™ to protect its internal private cloud infrastructure. KDDI’s new backup solution unified their backup methods and reduced operational management load all while protecting the company’s critical services for its social infrastructure. KDDI also leveraged Veeam Universal Licences (VULs) for their corporate customers, which chould also be used on both KDDI’s internal and corporate cloud platforms.

As Japan’s leading telecommunications carrier, KDDI offers a wide variety of solutions for individual and corporate customers. In the past, infrastructure for KDDI’s various services was created separately. To eliminate silos and respond quickly to changes in the market environment, KDDI began to standardize its service infrastructure across the entire company around 2010. After that, the company began building a company-wide private cloud platform that was used internally, called CKKB (a.k.a.: “internal cloud”). As a result, over 200 service applications now run on this internal cloud platform.

With multiple platforms in the internal cloud infrastructure, like Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Hardware as a Service (HaaS), plus backups performed via different methods, KDDI faced an increase in the company’s operational management load. Furthermore, the unification and restructuring of the company’s backup systems became an issue in the development of KDDI’s recovery environment. To face these challenges, KDDI chose Veeam Backup & Replication because it solved these issues. Also, VUL’s flexibility allowed the company to use these licenses both internally and for cloud services for corporate customers.

With Veeam, one thing that cannot be overlooked is the 3-2-1-1-0 Rule, which means maintaing at least three copies of your data, on two different types of media, with one copy being off-site and one copy offline, with verified backups that have zero errors.Through this best practice, KDDI can secure immutable and untamperable offsite storage while seeing zero backup errors.

With Veeam, KDDI can leverage its knowledge from its internal cloud service to provide cloud services to its corporate customers as well. The company added necessary functions to its cloud services for these customers, like backup options for virtual servers that use Veeam and Microsoft 365 backup to meet the growing demand for teleworking following the COVID-19 pandemic. KDDI achieved significant results overall.

“By deploying Veeam for backups of private clouds for internal use, we were able to enjoy a number of benefits, like unifying backup methods, which reduced the burden of operations and management, and improved the user convenience,” Takeshi Maehara, general manager of KDDI’s platform technology department said. “We have also been able to link this experience to the development of new services for our customers, which has also been a great achievement. In the future, we are considering expanding the scope of application to the Kubernetes-based container platform running in our internal cloud. In addition, as we enter the full-fledged 5G era, we are planning to further develop our Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) services. As we do, we have high expectations for the evolution of Veeam, since backing up the various resources scattered across the network will be a major issue.”

“We are honored that KDDI, one of Japan’s leading telecommunications companies, selected our flagship product, Veeam Backup & Replication, for its internal cloud backup system,” said Masakiyo Furudate, vice president and country manager of Veeam Japan. “With the diversification of services and the increase in the volume of data handled, the risk of cyberattacks and system failures are higher than ever. Veeam will continue to provide KDDI with reliable data protection for its social infrastructure, securing both their internal and customer cloud data.”

Enables organizations to detect and respond to data exfiltration events in virtualized environments from Git, Salesforce, GDrive and more

Minneapolis, MN – September 15, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today announced its Incydr product fully supports all major Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments. The Code42® Incydr™ product detects when valuable and sensitive files are moved to untrusted locations, including personal email and cloud accounts, and removable media – and allows security teams to quickly respond in order to stop data leaks and theft.

According to a recent survey of IT professionals published by Citrix, nearly 70% of organizations are planning to implement VDIs to accommodate hybrid or remote work strategies, with just under 60% accelerating the adoption of cloud tools. Though DaaS and VDI solutions help security teams better protect against vulnerabilities, malicious actors and other external threats, they do little to reduce the risk from insiders, as virtual environments inherently depend on cloud tools.

“We’ve seen a notable uptick in the number of teams that have deployed DaaS and VDI solutions throughout their environments. Given the continued popularity of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and remote work, coupled with an unstable hardware supply chain, we absolutely expect this trend to continue,” said Rob Juncker, CTO of Code42. “In virtual-first organizations where there is pervasive use of cloud collaboration tools, such as Git, Salesforce, GDrive, OneDrive and iCloud, Incydr wraps a layer of protection around data put at risk by insiders, complementing solutions that focus on external threats and malicious actors.”

Learn more about Code42’s Insider Risk Management Offering

Code42 Incydr: The Industry’s Leading Data Security Product for Exfiltration Detection and Response

Incydr is an Insider Risk Management solution that provides the visibility, context and controls needed to stop data leak and IP theft. Organizations utilize Incydr to detect and respond to data exposure and exfiltration from corporate computer, cloud and email systems. It deploys in hours so security teams can address material risk to the business in a matter of days and drive the secure work habits needed to decrease how often employees put data at risk in the future.

Code42 Instructor: Education-Led Insider Risk Response
The Code42 Instructor™ micro-learning solution improves Insider Risk awareness by focusing on the creation of holistic, security-oriented cultures. The solution delivers actionable, hyper-targeted and bite-sized video lessons to end-users when they’re needed most, helping to change security behavior for the long term. The Instructor solution helps organizations rapidly mature their Insider Risk Management programs by incorporating data-driven Insider Risk behavioral guidance for end-users.

Combining the Power of Incydr and Instructor
Instructor works in tandem with Incydr, allowing security, compliance and education teams to immediately send corrective video lessons triggered by employee actions that create risk for the business. For example, when Incydr flags file movement to an untrusted location, like an unauthorized cloud application, an Instructor video specifically explaining the correct activity is sent to educate the employee in real-time through the Incydr solution.

Code42 Services: Measure, Manage, Mitigate
IRM technology is simpler and faster to deploy than other technologies, such as DLP and CASB, but it does require a strategy and mindset shift. Insider Risk Management isn’t only about data – it’s about a company’s employees and culture. Code42 IRM Services are designed to help organizations establish an efficient and effective IRM program rooted in transparency, training and technology. Code42’s services take a collaborative approach to helping organizations develop, operationalize, and mature an end-to-end IRM program.

Fully Managed Otava Cloud Solution Includes Built-in Compliance Certifications, Infrastructure Management, and Complementary Services

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 15, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Otava, a global leader in custom and compliant hybrid cloud solutions, today announced that it has migrated compliance management software and consulting firm Total Compliance Tracking (TCT) to its Managed Azure Cloud platform.

TCT provides businesses, consultants, service providers and compliance assessment firms with software and consulting solutions that simplify compliance management. When TCT identified a need to add new hosting compliance certifications required by a growing number of organizations and assessors, it turned to its secure, compliant hosting partner, Otava.

“For years, Otava’s secure private cloud services have been a great fit for TCT, as their data centers cover a wide range of security and compliance certifications,” said Adam Goslin, CEO of TCT. “Now, as we are finding new opportunities to expand our business, we are thrilled that Otava has worked with us to migrate our environments to their Managed Azure platform. We’ve retained all the cloud benefits, added some key compliance certifications, and continue to have the benefit of Otava’s management, support, and expertise. As a result, we’ve grown, become more agile, and are serving expanded customer needs.”

Otava’s people-centered approach brought the team and purpose-built technology plan together seamlessly. Otava migrated TCT’s entire infrastructure, including its production, demo, and test environments, from its data centers to its Managed Azure Cloud platform within a weekend. The Otava Cloud solution now provides TCT with a reliable, secure, and compliant environment that allows the company more flexibility to grow and expand its services.

“Otava and TCT have a strong relationship that goes back many years. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to collaborate on a solution that leverages our expertise in cloud infrastructure management and provides the support and features TCT needs to advance its business,” said Jason Pohlman, Public Cloud Sales and Solutions Director, Otava. “With our Managed Azure solution, TCT has immediate new opportunities they can focus on pursuing. We always aim to empower what’s possible and are proud to be part of TCT’s success.”

In addition to the Managed Azure solution, Otava continues to provide TCT with several supporting security services, including Backup, DRaaS, File Integrity Management (FIM), Central Logging, Intrusion Detection System / Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS), Managed Firewall, Antivirus, and Vulnerability Scanning (both external and internal). The combination of complementary security solutions, all backed by Otava, means that TCT has a single partner for hosting solution management, assistance with numerous requirements of their existing certifications and support.

“The fact that Otava provides our cloud solution, plus all the complementary services, is incredibly valuable. It is a huge advantage to have all of our needs reliably handled by one trusted vendor rather than a multitude of providers that must be managed individually. Otava brings it all together in one simple, effective, and affordable package,” added Goslin.

TCT’s adoption of the new Managed Azure solution has provided a strong platform for long-term growth and success. Together, Otava and Azure offer all the key features and management capabilities that TCT needs to serve clients now and into the future. Otava provides added value in its maintenance of many important certifications such as PCI, SOC, ISO, and HIPAA, and expertly manages the Azure environment – which extends the compliance features even further. The full solution, including complementary services, provides confidence and peace of mind so that TCT can focus on growing its business and helping its customers without distraction.

TORONTO, ON – September 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Asigra Inc., a leader in ultra-secure backup and recovery, today announced the general availability of Tigris Data Protection software with CDR (Content Disarm & Reconstruction). The addition of CDR to Asigra’s comprehensive suite of security features makes it the most security-forward backup and recovery software platform on the market.

According to the 2022 Verizon Business Data Breach Investigation’s Report, “This has been an unprecedented year in cybersecurity history, shedding light on some of the leading issues affecting the international security landscape. Of particular concern is the alarming rise in ransomware breaches, which increased by 13 percent in a single year – representing a jump greater than the past five years combined.”

To address the ransomware threat, which now puts both primary and backup data at significant risk, Asigra Tigris Data Protection software now incorporates CDR for advanced protection against deeply embedded malware. The latest breed of ransomware embeds malicious code deep within content files that are often nested and zipped. Cybercriminals understand that anti-malware can’t scan what it can’t see, so utilizing deeply embedded code allows them to evade anti-malware.

The new security capability, CDR, deconstructs supported files into its smallest components to determine if there is malicious code, macros, links, or executables embedded within. After filtering and quarantining the malware, CDR rebuilds the original file without the malware. The technology outperforms predictive detection-based methods by removing any potential payload threats embedded deep within each file. The new CDR functionality guarantees the integrity of the files by retaining file functionality and authenticity without malicious code.

Asigra CDR is an industry-first for the backup space and includes the following capabilities:

  • Backup/recovery stream scans for potentially malicious or unauthorized content embedded within files (macros, scripts, etc.).
  • Flexible operation with user-defined policies (filter, block, and remove.
  • Powerful and fast inline scanning with the ability to break down each archive/file into its smallest components, cleanse the data and re-constitute in-stream as clean, recoverable data.
  • Bi-directional scanning, allowing CDR scanning of all files prior to encryption and delivery to the backup repository, as well as CDR scanning during recovery, prior to the files re-entering the production network. This is accomplished by policy-based execution to act on potentially dangerous objects.

Asigra Tigris is the first data protection platform of its kind that truly converges backup and enterprise-grade cybersecurity, creating new levels of cooperation between data protection and security professionals.

“A massive cyber-attack had hit us overnight. Of all the infrastructure available to us in the IT team we had one working laptop: no servers, no domain controllers, nothing. It had all been corrupted by the PYSA ransomware gang,” explains Myerscough College Director of IT, Ian Brown, in a Barracuda case study. “Obviously the first reaction is one of total shock and disbelief,” he stated. According to the case study, “A year previously, Ian invested in Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup. Within days the college had recovered most of its key infrastructure to the point where it could begin to support staff and students once again without having to engage with the threat actors or paying any ransom.”

According to Vinny Phul, Head of IT for the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), in a Barracuda case study, Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup more than met their needs. “It took only minutes to set up,” Vinny explained. “Having a true Office 365 backup gives us additional peace of mind against the ransomware threat. Cloud-to-Cloud Backup makes it very easy to find lost files for our day-today needs.”

“With a cloud-native solution, you get the benefit of scale on your backup, and your solution is fully managed. So unlike with traditional backup solutions, where you have to do capacity management and capacity planning and make sure you have enough storage, a cloud-native solution, like Barracuda Cloud-to-Cloud Backup really offers you a managed solution with virtually unlimited capacity to store your data.” – Nills Franssens, Senior Cloud Solution Architect, Microsoft

  • Significant Number of Businesses Experienced Permanent Data Loss
  • Businesses Unable to Maintain Business Continuity after Losing Data
  • Risk to Businesses as Disaster Recovery Plans Aren’t Updated, Tested, and Well Documented

Eden Prairie, MN – September 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Arcserve, the world’s most experienced provider of backup, recovery and immutable storage solutions for unified data resilience against ransomware and disasters, today announced key findings from its annual independent global research study that showed the loss of critical data continues to disrupt businesses and remain an issue for organizations. In the research study of experiences and attitudes of IT decision makers (ITDMs), 76% of respondents reported a severe loss of critical data in their organization. Of that number, 45% had permanent data loss. Data is a priceless commodity, and these findings underscore the importance of building data resilience with a robust data backup and recovery plan with data integrity at the core to prevent severe business disruptions.

The research study also found that many organizations could not maintain business continuity on time once data was lost or compromised. It is vital for businesses to recover data quickly, especially in today’s always-on world.

  • 83% of respondents said that 12 hours or less is an acceptable level of downtime for critical systems before there is a measurable negative business impact. Still, only 52% could recover from a severe data loss in 12 hours or less.
  • 29% of the businesses surveyed couldn’t recover data for one day or more.

The research results also revealed that a new approach to disaster recovery is needed. Organizations should continuously update, test, and document their disaster recovery plan to build data resilience. The importance of protecting and recovering data should also be elevated to all company levels with specific goals.

  • 95% of respondents in the survey said their company has a disaster recovery plan. However, only 24% have a mature plan that is well documented, tested, and updated.
  • 83% said their organizations include data resilience in their strategies. Still, only 23% have a mature approach with associated goals to track progress.

Said Florian Malecki, executive vice president, marketing at Arcserve: “Our annual survey reinforces the business imperative for organizations to implement a data resilience strategy that incorporates mature data backup and disaster recovery plans. We live in a world of growing ransomware attacks and frequent natural disasters. Any downtime from data loss can be destructive for a business from impacting sales to losing customer loyalty.” He continued: “Arcserve aims to help businesses avoid costly business disasters and reputational damage from data loss with our best-in-class unified data resilience solutions suite. Our backup and recovery solutions, and immutable storage offering, ensure a near-zero impact on businesses.”

About the research conducted by Dimensional Research: 1,121 IT decision-makers completed the survey. All participants had a budget or technical decision-making responsibility for data management, data protection, and storage solutions at a company with 100 – 2,500 employees and at least 5 TB of data. The survey was fielded in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, France, Germany, India, Japan, Korea, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada (North America).

Almost half surveyed say they are using hybrid cloud or local cloud service providers as an alternative to AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud to meet sovereignty requirements

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Sept. 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Scality today announced the results of an independent survey of IT decision makers across France, Germany, the U.K., and the U.S. about their data sovereignty strategies. 98% of organizations already have policies in place or have plans to implement them. To achieve data sovereignty, 49% of IT decision makers are using hybrid cloud or regional cloud service providers as an alternative to the public cloud.

137 out of 194 countries in the world have data protection and privacy legislation in place.1 As a result, organizations must adhere to the data residency guidance and local regulations required for data collection and processing.

According to the survey — conducted by global technology market research firm Vanson Bourne — the vast majority of organizations across all four countries either have sovereignty regulations or policies in place to keep their data in specific locations (80%) or have plans to do so (18%). The report reveals minimal differences between France (where 81% of respondents have policies in place), Germany (79%), U.K. (82%), and U.S. (78%). Just 2% of respondents worldwide said they do not have sovereignty policies in place, nor do they plan to implement them.

Cloud technologies will benefit from this trend, with IT teams employing a number of data storage strategies to achieve sovereignty. Across the four geographies, of the organizations that have sovereignty policies or plans:

  1. 40% primarily (will) store their data on a large public cloud, such as regional offerings by AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud
  2. 36% of respondents (will) deploy a combined on-premises/public cloud solution, i.e. hybrid cloud
  3. 13% (will) store their data with a regional cloud service provider
  4. 11% (will) use an on-premises data center.

While some large public cloud providers offer options to store data in specific regions, this isn’t suitable for many organizations that own highly sensitive data, or who wish to avoid vendor lock in and high data access or egress fees.
Hybrid cloud sovereignty emerges as viable strategy to meet regulations
36% of respondents opted for a solution that combines on-premises or private cloud/s with public cloud/s. This hybrid cloud approach provides the flexibility and control to store data locally for data residency and sovereignty while providing the freedom to easily migrate data to a different platform at any time.

Key findings in France include:

  1. 81% of French respondents have already adopted data sovereignty policies, while 18% plan to do so
  2. In France, organizations in the business and professional services sector, and in the retail, distribution, and transport sector, are most likely to already have data sovereignty regulations in place, at 89%. Respondents in the IT, technology, and telecoms sector are least likely to have implemented such plans, at 67%
  3. To implement data sovereignty policies, 52% of French respondents (will) leverage a public cloud service, 33% a hybrid cloud, 8% a regional service provider, and 7% an on-premises data center
  4. Interestingly, compared to the other regions in this survey, France is most likely to opt for the public cloud (at 52% against a worldwide average of 40%). This is likely due to a number of respondents answering public cloud while thinking of large telcos, such as Orange, that are extremely prominent in the country.

Key findings in Germany include: 

  1. 79% of German respondents have already implemented sovereignty policies, while 19% intend to do so. Just 2% do not have any sovereignty plans at all
  2. German manufacturing organizations are significantly behind the 79% average, with 69% having policies in place; however the remaining 31% plan to implement them. Small-medium businesses (1,000-2,999 employees) are better prepared than larger ones (3,000+ employees), with 85% having already implemented sovereignty policies compared to 73%
  3. To implement sovereignty policies, Germany has the lowest rate of public cloud data storage use (32% against a global average of 40%), the second highest rate of hybrid cloud (38% vs. a 36% average worldwide), and by far the highest usage of a regional cloud provider (21% compared the global average of 13%). Germany and France are least likely to select on-premises storage (9% and 7% against the global average of 11%)
  4. German respondents from smaller companies (1,000-2,999 employees) are slightly more likely to select a public cloud compared to a hybrid cloud (32% vs. 28%), while large businesses (3,000+ employees) are far more likely to opt for hybrid (47%) than public cloud (31%) usage.
  5. In Germany, the other commercial sector, and business and professional services sector, stand out for their heavy reliance on hybrid solutions (57% and 67%), although the samples (8 and 10) are very small. Only the other commercial sector in the U.K. (at 67%) matches these figures.

Key findings in the U.K. include: 

  1. 82% of U.K. respondents have already adopted data sovereignty policies, and 13% have plans to do so; 5% do not plan to implement them, and are most likely to come from a smaller sized organization (1,000-2,999 employees)
  2. In the U.K., organizations from the IT, technology, and telecoms sector (92%), the business and professional services sector (90%), and the financial services sector (88%) are most likely to already have policies in place
  3. Manufacturing organizations are significantly behind the U.K. average of 82%, with 62% having policies in place, while 31% have plans to implement them
  4. To implement data sovereignty policies, 33% of U.K. respondents (will) use a large public cloud service, 42% a hybrid cloud, 14% a regional service provider, and 12% an on-premises data center
  5. U.K. respondents from smaller organizations (1,000-2,999 employees) compared to larger organizations (3,000+ employees) are significantly more likely to select a public cloud service (45% vs 25%), and less likely to select a hybrid cloud (32% vs 49%).

Key findings in the U.S. include: 

  1. 78% of U.S. respondents have already adopted data sovereignty policies, and 21% have plans to do so. Just 1% said they do not plan to implement them
  2. In the U.S., organizations from the business and professional services (90%), and the manufacturing (86%) sectors are most likely to already have policies in place
  3. To implement sovereignty policies, 41% of U.S respondents (will) use a public cloud service, 33% hybrid cloud, 12% a regional service provider, and 14% an on-premises data center. Interestingly, compared to the other regions, the U.S. is most likely to opt for an on-premises data center (at 14% against a worldwide average of 11%)
  4. U.S. respondents from smaller organizations (1,000-2,999 employees) compared to larger organizations (3,000+ employees) are more likely to select a public cloud (43% vs 39%) or regional cloud service provider (14% vs 10%), and less likely to select a hybrid cloud (29% vs 36%) or on-premises data center (13% vs 15%).

“It’s extremely encouraging to see that such a high number of organizations in the U.S. as well as Europe are taking data sovereignty seriously and have plans in place, including a significant shift toward hybrid-cloud strategies. This can certainly help organizations prevent cloud lock-in and provide safety in having data stored locally or in multiple locations. The surprisingly high results in the U.S. could be due to growing concerns regarding China’s strength in technology development.” Paul Speciale Chief marketing officer, Scality

In the survey, detailed further in this blog — https://solved.scality.com/solved/data-sovereignty-concerns-highlight-hybrid-cloud-shift — IT decision makers from several industries including manufacturing, telecom, professional services, financial services, and retail, were asked: “To what extent does your organization have sovereignty regulations or policies in place to keep your data in specific locations (e.g., local, in specific countries or regions)?” Respondents that currently have or are planning sovereignty regulations to keep data in specific locations were asked: “How are you primarily storing or planning to store the data?”
