More than 30% of AEC companies that are victimized by successful attacks fall victim again

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – August 4, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte, the leader in cloud content security and governance, today published a research report that analyzes reported ransomware incidents among its Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) industry customers. While the attacks were not due to any vulnerabilities in the Egnyte platform and Egnyte customers are seeing a much lower number of attacks than publicly available sources, the research revealed that AEC firms are more than twice as likely to suffer from ransomware attacks than the rest of the industries analyzed in the study. In addition, nearly a third (31%) of the companies that were victims of ransomware were attacked at least twice within a 16-month period, and a small number were attacked even more frequently than that.

Egnyte’s ‘State of Ransomware Research Report for Architecture, Engineering and Construction’ also found that companies with more than 1,000 employees were at the highest risk of attack, with the overwhelming majority of attacks targeting North American companies.

According to analysis by Egnyte, AEC firms have several factors working against them that may result in a higher rate of targeting. They are very schedule-driven, and any delays due to lack of access to their project files will significantly impact their costs, project timelines, and damage their brand reputations. In addition, AEC firms have a significant portion of their employees working remotely and many companies maintain a shared information environment with a range of outside contractors on job sites, which opens additional entry points for attackers to exploit. Couple those factors with tighter profit margins, and AEC firms may be more likely to pay a ransom to get up and running more quickly than other industries.

“The threat of ransomware continues to rise as economic and technological factors make AEC firms prime targets for threat actors,” commented Ronen Vengosh, VP of AEC, Egnyte. “Firms need to invest in a holistic defense program which is a combination of the right prevention technologies, content governance, and user-education so they can mitigate potential attacks and avoid any business disruptions.”

Despite the perception they are too small to target, SMBs are increasingly vulnerable due to supply-chain attacks and greater use of automation by ransomware groups

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – August 4, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today released the Acronis Cyberthreats Report Mid-year 2021 update, an in-depth review of the cyberthreat trends the company’s experts are tracking. Released at this week’s Black Hat 2021 event, where Acronis is a Diamond sponsor, the report warns that small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are at particular risk based on the attack trends seen during the first six months of the year.

The report revealed that during the first half of 2021, 4 out of 5 organizations experienced a cybersecurity breach originating from a vulnerability in their third-party vendor ecosystem. That’s at a time when the average cost of a data breach rose to around $3.56 million, with the average ransomware payment jumping 33% to more than $100,000.

While that represents a major financial hit to any organization, those amounts would sound the death-knell for most SMBs, which Acronis believes is a major concern for the second half of 2021.

“While the increase in attacks affects organizations of all sizes, something that’s under-reported in the coverage of current cyberthreat trends is the impact on the small business community,” explained Candid Wüest, Acronis VP of Cyber Protection Research. “Unlike larger corporations, small and medium-sized companies don’t have the money, resources, or staffing expertise needed to counter today’s threats. That’s why they turn to IT service providers – but if those service providers are compromised, those SMBs are at the mercy of the attackers.”

By utilizing supply-chain attacks against managed service providers (MSPs), attackers gain access to both the MSP business and all of its clients. As seen in the SolarWinds breach last year and the Kaseya VSA attack earlier in 2021, one successful attack means they can breach hundreds or thousands of SMBs downstream.

At Black Hat 2021, Wüest will provide an in-depth look at how supply-chain attacks against IT service providers pose a particular threat to SMBs in a session titled Ransomware Attacks Against MSPs – A Nightmare for SMBs.

Additional takeaways at the mid-year mark
Beyond the high-profile attacks that have dominated the headlines during the past six months and the concerns Acronis is raising about the impact on MSPs and small businesses, the Acronis Cyberthreats Report Mid-year 2021 also noted:

  • Phishing attacks are rampant. Using social engineering techniques to trick unwary users into clicking malicious attachments or links, phishing emails rose 62% from Q1 to Q2. That spike is of particular concern since 94% of malware is delivered by email. During the same period, Acronis blocked more than 393,000 phishing and malicious URLs for clients, preventing attackers from accessing valuable data and injecting malware into the client’s system.
  • Data exfiltration continues to increase. In 2020, more than 1,300 victims of ransomware had their data publicly leaked following an attack, as cybercriminals look to maximize the financial gain from successful incidents. During the first half of 2021, more than 1,100 data leaks have already been published – which projects a 70% increase for the year.
  • Remote workers continue to be a prime target. The reliance on remote workers continues in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Two-thirds of remote workers now use work devices for personal tasks and use personal home devices for business activities. As a result, attackers have been actively probing remote workers. Acronis observed more than twice the number of global cyberattacks, with a 300% increase in brute-force attacks against remote machines via RDP.

Creating the Acronis Cyberthreats Report Mid-year 2021
The Acronis Cyberthreats Report Mid-year 2021 is based on examining attack and threat data collected by the company’s global network of Acronis CPOCs, which monitor and research cyberthreats 24/7. Malware data was collected by more than 250,000 unique endpoints around the world running Acronis Cyber Protect (either as a client of an MSP using Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud or a business running Acronis Cyber Protect 15). The mid-year update covers attacks targeting endpoints detected between January and June 2021.

The full report provides in-depth insights into the top security/threat trends the CPOCs observed during the first half of 2021, a review of malware families and related statistics, a deep dive into ransomware’s most dangerous groups, the vulnerabilities that contribute to successful attacks, and Acronis’ security recommendations for the remainder of 2021 and beyond.

Wasabi highlighted for its low-cost, high-performance cloud storage infrastructure, customer and partner growth, and global expansion

BOSTON, MA – August 4, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that global research firm IDC has recognized Wasabi as a company “Who Shaped the Year” in its Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service Market Shares, 2020 Report (Doc #US47350821e, July 2021). This IDC report presents the global public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market, which grew to $65.5 billion in 2020 as enterprises pivoted to support distributed workforces and digital interactions with customers while generating more data than ever before.

In IDC’s assessment of the worldwide public cloud IaaS market, Wasabi is highlighted for its infrastructure and performance, consistent growth across customers and partners, affordability, and ease of use. According to the report, “Wasabi entered the IaaS market with a focus on low-cost, high-performance object storage. The vendor’s approach has proved a recipe for success, particularly with storage software and services providers that can quickly and cost effectively integrate Wasabi as their cloud-based object storage back end.”

The IDC IaaS Market Share recognition comes on top of a banner year for Wasabi. The company closed $137M in Series C financing, bringing its total funding to nearly $275 million. 2021 has also seen the company grow to 25,000 customers and 6,000 channel partners worldwide, and surpass one Exabyte of storage deployed globally. Wasabi also expanded its global footprint with data centers across the United States, Europe, and most recently Japan – part of the region that experienced the fastest market growth in IDC’s research at 38%.

“The public cloud IaaS market is a massive, high-growth IT infrastructure segment – topping $65.5 billion in 2020. However, it is an extremely difficult market for new entrants to establish themselves – especially pureplay providers,” said Andrew Smith, research manager, Cloud infrastructure Services at IDC. “Wasabi is one of few vendors that has successfully broken into the IaaS market, establishing a significant customer and partner base in public cloud storage. As enterprises continue to expand their reliance on stored data and cloud services; Wasabi will remain well positioned for growth, striking a unique balance between high-performance and low-cost object storage which appeals to a wide range of enterprises, partners, and use cases.”

“Wasabi was founded to take the complexity out of cloud storage performance and pricing and to make it more reliable and transparent. As 2020 forced us all to reimagine how we work and conduct business, low-cost, reliable and scalable cloud storage is more important than ever,” said David Friend, CEO and Co-Founder of Wasabi. “This recognition from IDC alongside some of the world’s most well-known technology companies validates our more simplified and predictable approach to cloud storage. With our recent funding, revenues tripling each of the last three years, and exponential partner and customer growth, we’re well-positioned to grow our leadership in the IaaS market.”

RING certified as SEC 17a-4(f) compliant

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Aug. 4, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Scality announced today that compliance auditing firm Cohasset Associates has certified Scality RING as SEC 17a-4(f) compliant — a data security milestone achieved by only a handful of storage systems. Cohasset’s report is available for download here.

Click to Tweet: @Scality attains @CohassetAssoc SEC #compliance certification for secure #FinTech industry data storage: https://www.scality.com/landing/comply-confidence

The Scality RING object storage solution is now certified as compliant for use cases that require specific capabilities and features needed for highly secure data storage in banks, brokerage firms and other financial institutions. These include:

WORM (write once read many) storage – WORM protection makes data immutable, preventing it from being modified or deleted, allowing it to be read as many times as needed while adhering to user access control policies.

Data retention – The system provides policies for how long data should be stored.

Legal holds – Administrators in the financial industry can override a data retention policy for a legal reason. For example, if data is stored for five years, in the sixth year it remains locked for legal reasons as specified by the legal hold.

Auditing – The system provides extensive audit trails to see who accessed the system, when and what actions they performed to enable forensic analysis for all events.

Scality has seven of the world’s largest banks as customers, and this SEC compliance certification means those customers can build on their existing big data analytics, backup, archive and private-cloud use cases to also store compliance-related data. Cohasset’s third-party certification broadens the use cases for RING in financial companies beyond normal backup and archival use cases, to include data that the Securities and Exchange Commission deems as requiring special data protection — for instance, customer financial and trading records and histories, including backups of this data.

Paul Speciale, chief product officer, Scality, said: “RING provides bulletproof security features that our financial industry customers need by law. RING can now consolidate normal backup and archival data, as well as specialized compliance data. This further reduces silos by eliminating the need for another specific storage system for compliance data only. This certification creates trust that some of the world’s most sensitive data from financial institutions can be stored on RING, so it can also be trusted in other regulatory compliance use cases, such as the healthcare and government sectors.”

About Scality
Scality® storage propels companies to unify data management no matter where data lives — from edge to core to cloud. Our market-leading file and object storage software protects data on-premises and in hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Together, Code42 Incydr and Rapid7 InsightIDR Help Security Teams Prioritize Risks and Strengthen Compliance Without Blocking User Productivity

Minneapolis, MN — Aug. 3, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Code42, the Insider Risk Management leader, announced it has integrated the Code42® Incydr™ product with Rapid7 InsightIDR. Security teams using InsightIDR with the Code42 Incydr integration will have the ability to identify, prioritize and triage the most critical insider threat events – data leakage, theft or malicious attempts to conceal file exfiltration. Code42 Incydr is the first data source dedicated to insider threat events to be accessible to InsightIDR users.

This integration will improve SOC analysts’ abilities to detect insider threat events by improving the signal of risky events, reducing the noise from trusted activities, and simplifying investigations, thereby saving security teams hours of time. One-click access to the Code42 Incydr console directly from InsightIDR enables analysts to execute fast, contextualized insider threat investigations and strengthens compliance and file integrity monitoring (FIM). Incydr technology surfaces critical file modification events, contents of exfiltrated files and directly attributes users to suspicious activity in real-time. These combined capabilities inform appropriate triage through the right human and automated response actions.

“Distributed work environments and the increased use of file sharing and collaboration for legitimate work purposes are making it more difficult for security analysts to determine which file activities within their organizations are real threats to the business,” said David Beaver, global director of strategic alliances at Rapid7. “The Code42 Incydr solution is helping InsightIDR further diminish noise with advanced contextualization of data movement by employees and contractors, which will accelerate response times and better support critical investigations.”

Traditional approaches to protecting against insider threats – data loss prevention (DLP) tools – are dependent on classification and policies and are unable to keep pace with the modern-day workforce. As the borderless and hybrid workforce continues to rely on cloud-based, collaborative technologies post-pandemic, organizations must move away from strategies that block employees’ legitimate work and file sharing. Otherwise, their data could be put at risk by employees and users who modify sensitive files in an attempt to circumvent policies, misclassify valuable data or adopt unsanctioned technologies that introduce new vectors for exfiltration.

“Security leaders have indicated in our research that 69% of them have experienced a data breach even when they have had a DLP in place. It is clear that today’s organizations need a better way to identify and respond to data exposure and exfiltration happening from inside their organizations,” said Ananth Appathurai, senior vice president of strategic partnerships and ecosystem at Code42. “Our integration with InsightIDR helps analysts quickly determine what is and isn’t a threat. It combines the granular context and high-fidelity alerts that the Code42 Incydr product is known for with Rapid7’s industry-leading detection and response solution to deliver actionable insights immediately and eliminate blindspots to insider threats.”

The latest version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides additional security with Immutable Repository and Two-Factor Authentication to help customers protect their backup data against ransomware

Sparks, NV – August 3, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO has released v10.4 of NAKIVO Backup & Replication with a focus on the security of backup data and ransomware protection. The new features include Immutable Repository and Two-Factor Authentication designed to strengthen the security of NAKIVO’s 18,000+ customer base and ensure that their data is recoverable even after a ransomware attack..

Immutable Repository
Backups are as vulnerable to ransomware as any other data stored on local storage media if not offline or air-gapped. The new Immutable Repository feature allows making backups sent to a local Linux-based repository immutable and hence ransomware-resilient. The new feature relies on native Linux functionality to ensure ransomware protection. Immutable backup data is protected from corruption and encryption by ransomware but can still be used for recovery. Once set, the immutability of backups cannot be changed by anyone other than a superuser.

Two-Factor Authentication
Automated attacks to gain unauthorized access to systems are among the major causes of data breaches. The latest release introduces a simple yet effective measure to protect users against these tactics. The new Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) option improves the security of customers’ backups by requiring an authentication code to access NAKIVO Backup & Replication. By enabling 2FA, access to data protection activities will require a one-time password generated by Google Authenticator. This way, a leaked password is now much less of a threat.

Instant Granular Recovery for Nutanix AHV
In Nutanix AHV environments, swift recovery of corrupted or accidentally deleted data in business-critical applications is essential for seamless workflows. Now, customers with Nutanix AHV VMs can instantly recover files and app objects in Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Exchange and Active Directory. Customers can perform recovery to the original or a different VM or export the data to a custom location without recovering the entire VM.

Feature Availability
All of the new enhancements can be tried in the 15-day Free Trial, which includes full access to all NAKIVO Backup & Replication features.

“As cybercriminals come up with more sophisticated attacks, we need to stay ahead of them by making more security features available to our customers. This release aims to help our customers beat ransomware without negotiating with hackers,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc.

Supporting Quote:

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is 40% less expensive than our previous product, plus, we spend 30% less time on NAKIVO Backup & Replication when it comes to management. In addition to saving time and money, NAKIVO Backup & Replication guarantees reliable backups, as well as integration with various cloud platforms,” says Silvia Marta, CEO of Siggi Group.

The Fully Virtual Event on Sept. 14-15 is Hosted by Leading Cybersecurity Experts and Technology Organizations

Minneapolis, MN – Aug 3, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, the Insider Risk Summit™ team announced the return of its annual cybersecurity event on Sept. 14-15. This year, Chris Krebs will headline as the keynote speaker on Sept. 14. Register now for the fully virtual, free-to-attend industry event that brings together security leaders and practitioners as well as leading security solution providers and industry analysts focused on preventing, detecting, investigating and responding to insider risk. The Insider Risk Summit is the industry’s leading conference on Insider Risk Management (IRM). IRM is a new data security movement for mitigating any data exposure event – security, compliance or competitive in nature – that jeopardizes the financial, reputational or operational well-being of a company, its employees, customers and partners.

Krebs, a highly-respected cybersecurity authority who served as the first director of the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), will discuss the challenges of securing sensitive intellectual property while enabling collaboration and prioritizing and scoping risk during his keynote remarks. Today, Krebs serves as the founding partner of the Krebs Stamos Group.

Through the powerful networks of its hosts – Code42, Duo Security at Cisco, Exabeam, LogRhythm, Optiv, Securonix, Signpost Six and SumoLogic – this year’s Insider Risk Summit brings together a community of security leaders and practitioners to discuss problems and solutions related to the escalating risk of insiders to company data.

This summit will focus on all aspects of insider risk including IP theft, intentional data leaks and non-malicious exfiltration actions. Managing insider risk is a challenge made even more urgent in today’s highly-collaborative, cloud-enabled, borderless work environment where data is digital and on the move every day. During the event, attendees will explore new strategies for detecting and mitigating insider threats to data, holistically shifting organizational thinking about insider risk, and building a security-aware culture without standing in the way of employee productivity.

“The simple truth is that over 60% of employees admit that they took data from their last job specifically to help them in their current job. With millions of workers – equating to about 40% of employees – planning to switch jobs as we emerge from the pandemic, we expect corporate data to be acutely at risk during the coming months,” said Joe Payne, Code42 president and CEO. “The Insider Risk Summit is the best venue for the security community to hone their skills and networks to prepare for addressing the growing insider risk problem. We are thrilled that Chris Krebs will be sharing his unique insights with us during the Insider Risk Summit.”

Insider Risk Summit Featured Speakers
In addition to Krebs, the line-up of speakers for the Insider Risk Summit includes top-tier cybersecurity and IRM experts from consulting and research organizations as well as leading security and technology companies. The speakers will outline key takeaways from lessons learned during the past year as well as how to establish long-term, proactive strategies for managing insider risk. The Insider Risk Summit also will host insider risk practitioners who will share case studies on how they detect, investigate and respond to insider risk incidents. Some of the event’s featured speakers include:

Media Provider now leverages StorONE for NAS and VMware as well

NEW YORK, NY – August 03, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — StorONE, the company that developed the only software-defined Enterprise Storage Platform, today announced that America’s Test Kitchen (ATK) has expanded its use of StorONE for NAS and VMware.

ATK is where curious cooks become confident cooks. A media and publishing company based in Boston, ATK produces unique and original content for television, video, websites and podcasts, and printed magazines and books. When ATK needed help archiving and protecting their extensive library of media assets, they turned to StorONE’s S1:Enterprise Storage Platform.

“When evaluating our content requirements and how best to protect and archive our most critical assets, I didn’t want to get locked into a storage solution that could only store backups, or that could only be used as an archive,” said Dustin Brandt, Director of IT at ATK. “StorONE enables us to archive and consolidate 20+ years of digital assets, use it as an automated backup target, serve up storage for virtualization development, and provision on-demand storage shares for project development. We’re doing this at a price that is dramatically less than competing, single-use systems, and for the types of files and content that we deal with, we’ve even found storing our backups on StorONE to be less expensive and more accessible than putting them in the cloud.”

ATK has been using StorONE for over two years and continues to leverage its flexibility to support multiple use cases. ATK initially used StorONE to migrate away from tape library archives and provide a better, overall administrative experience for dealing with long-term, cooler storage. Shortly after implementation, ATK began leveraging StorONE’s built-in NAS capability allowing users direct access to archive their old projects. StorONE provides them with better insight into what exactly is in their archive and has eliminated the need for a tape library.

“Our journey with StorONE continues to evolve,” Brandt explains, “as we build our layers of archival storage and begin using it in a primary storage capacity.”

Within the first year, ATK began using the same StorONE system as an NFS archive for its Rubrik backup appliance. In this scenario, ATK uses StorONE as the target for its automated backups and lifecycle policies of production virtualization and NAS systems. As Brandt indicates, “The flexibility of the system and ease of use of StorONE allows us to stay responsive to the company’s needs and quickly devise and provision new solutions.” Using their StorONE in this way, ATK is able to balance its archive strategy and reduce the company’s dependency on any single public cloud provider and their associated costs. In 2020, ATK began using StorONE as a storage host for development virtualization workloads, and in 2021, they are beginning to move some of their production NetApp NAS workloads to StorONE as well.

“StorONE rewrote and collapsed the legacy storage IO stack to deliver a unique storage solution that has the flexibility to meet a wide variety of storage use cases from a single storage platform,” said StorONE CEO, Gal Naor. “ATK is an excellent example of our typical customer journey. They start with backup or archive, and then as other workloads emerge or old systems reach the end of life, they move them to the StorONE platform.”

At ATK, StorONE runs on a highly available storage controller with internal flash drives, which provide rapid data ingest. Connected to the HA storage controller are 2PBs of hard disk storage for long-term storage. StorONE automatically tiers data, as it ages, to the HDD tier for faster recall performance. StorONE’s volume isolation technology enables ATK to fine-tune how each workload will use the flash tier. Some VMs are dedicated to flash-only, while the archive and backup workloads mostly use hard disk capacity. ATK uses StorONE snapshots to increase data retention and protect against accidental user deletion or ransomware.

Brandt summarized his StorONE experience by saying, “Storage has always been a challenge for us – the volume and types of media files we work with make it imperative for us to respond quickly to the business’ needs. I just need it to work, and StorONE makes storage simple. I continue to be amazed that this one solution can support many use cases without switching storage hardware.”

StorONE’s Enterprise Storage Platform enables customers to solve very tactical challenges like backup, archive, or tape replacement and then add production-class use cases to the platform at their pace. The initial tactical project turns into a long-term storage consolidation strategy.

Join, ATK’s Dustin Brandt and StorONE’s CMO George Crump for a live TechTalk on August 5th at 11:30am ET as they discuss how ATK has been able to solve multiple storage challenges with StorONE, starting with backup and archive.

About ATK
America’s Test Kitchen is a media and publishing company located in Boston. Our award-winning and respected family of brands helps curious cooks become confident cooks and includes: America’s Test Kitchen and Cook’s Country television shows, Cook’s Illustrated and Cook’s Country magazines, ATK Books, ATK Kids, ATK Online Cooking School, ATK websites, and our Mystery Recipe, Proof and The Walk-In podcasts.

About StorONE
StorONE was founded in 2011 and spent its first eight years rewriting the legacy storage system software and flattening the storage IO stack before coming to market with the S1 Engine. The S1 Engine creates an efficient, single translation layer that allows you to benefit from today’s hardware innovations while your data receives industry-leading data protection. This Engine powers the S1:Enterprise Storage Platform, enabling IT to take a platform approach to storage consolidation. Customers can start using StorONE for backup and archive solutions because the system provides cost-effective capacity. Then later, they can add production class use cases like NAS, VMware, or databases because the system offers cost-effective performance. The result is the lowest TCO in the industry and the elimination of storage refreshes.

Pungkook Corporation, a multinational corporation from South Korea, saves time on maintenance and administration with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – August 2, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that Pungkook Corporation has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Pungkook Corporation is a multinational corporation from South Korea with bag manufacturing sites around the world. The company’s IT environment has 20 physical servers and 10 virtual machines residing in different sites. The virtual machines and servers run internal operating systems and applications, which primarily manage critical databases for multiple departments. All employee requests must be approved through the internal operating systems. Pungkook’s business operations have to be continuously monitored and cannot be stopped for any reason, in order to ensure business continuity and factory productivity. If business operations stop, that will bring production to a halt and lead to delays and significant financial losses.

Pungkook used other backup solutions to back up their data, but these solutions lacked automation and reporting functionalities. The previous solutions also consumed too much time in terms of backup and recovery management and did not provide notifications via email. Moreover, the recovery of files and folders took a long time. Pungkook required a reliable and fast backup solution that could help them achieve their data protection goals that the previous backup systems could not meet. The main criteria for a new backup solution was an efficient VM backup process that could be managed via an easy-to-use and user-friendly web interface.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a robust data protection solution for virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments. NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers flexibility in terms of installation, as the product can be installed on Windows/Linux, deployed as a pre-configured virtual appliance, or installed on a NAS server. Most importantly, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers better backup, replication, and recovery functionalities along with reporting features. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication allows Pungkook to back up various platforms, such as virtual machines and physical servers. Also, NAKIVO Backup & Replication brings us better backup efficiency and faster backup speed,” says William, IT Manager at Pungkook Corporation.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is installed on a Synology NAS. The installation was easily and quickly done and we did not need a PC or a physical server for the product deployment. All was fast, easy, and simple,” says William. “The web interface of the latest version 10.3 is user friendlier than that of version 9.0. The good thing is that NAKIVO is evolving and improving things. Plus, the product’s dashboard provides us enough information and allows us to quickly create any job we want,” says William.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication can back up our VMs in no time. We do backups on a daily basis. The product displays clearly what steps and information should be configured in the job wizard. We do not spend hours on scheduling and monitoring backup jobs, as everything is automated, and we receive clear notifications to our email. Now, we can restore individual files and folders by selecting a specific item with ease, and it literally takes us minutes. VM replication is also a big advantage since we have multiple locations and we can create VM replicas with more ease in comparison to the other solutions,” says William.

Pungkook also appreciates the level of professionalism that NAKIVO’s technical support team has shown. “The support team has always been there when we’ve needed support. We can feel their enthusiasm because support assisted us with the trial from the beginning of the testing process. Also, support conducted a deployment session that helped me better understand how to get started with the software,” says William.

“NAKIVO Backup and Replication met the criteria that we had from the beginning and provided automated job scheduling that saves our management a huge amount of time. There is no need to spend too much time on monitoring jobs or running jobs manually. Moreover, we have even more time savings thanks to automated reports that helped us to improve backup administration,” says William. “With the previous solution, we had to check running jobs frequently because we did not have automation. The biggest savings for us come from time saved on operating and managing the software.”

The unique approach of the cyber protection pioneer places it among other leaders evaluated by market performance, vision, leadership and change capabilities

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – August 2, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, has been recognized in the 2021 Canalys Global Cybersecurity Leadership Matrix. The company was praised for its advances in protection beyond backup and recovery.

Canalys is a leading global technology market analyst firm with a distinct channel focus that strives to guide clients on the future of the technology industry. Its Cybersecurity Leadership Matrix, the firm explains, “assesses vendor performance in the channel, based on worldwide channel feedback into the Vendor Benchmark over the last 12 months (July 2020 to June 2021), vendor feedback on channel program initiatives, and an independent analysis of each vendor.”

In the 2021 report, Acronis is praised for its endpoint security integrated with backup and recovery. The position in the matrix was solidified with the recent launches of Acronis Detection and Response, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Email Security, and the company’s new #CyberFit Partner Program, as well as several recent acquisitions and the establishment of a new cyber protection R&D center and partner enablement office in Israel.

“We are pleased to be recognized by Canalys among the leaders in cybersecurity,” said Gaidar Magdanurov, Chief Success Officer at Acronis. “Over last three years, Acronis has evolved to become a leader in cyber protection – first to combine cybersecurity, data protection and management into one solution. But it’s the growing recognition by top analyst firms, like Canalys, which proves that cyber protection is the only way to defend your IT infrastructure against modern threats.”

The report comes on the heels of Acronis securing a $250 million funding round led by CVC Capital Partners VII in May 2021, bringing the company’s valuation to more than $2.5 billion. The company has been leveraging the investment to further enhance its go-to-market initiatives by expanding the broad partner network and providing even greater support to managed service providers (MSPs), cloud distributors, cloud aggregators, and other partners.

“Acronis secured its position in the report as a Grower due to its continued investment and commitment to the channel,” said Matthew Ball, Canalys Chief Analyst. “Through its numerous 2021 enhancements and implementations, as well as its unified approach to both its service providers and resellers, Acronis is poised to maintain growth and remain a key vendor for cybersecurity partners.”

Acronis cyber protection solutions are trusted by over 1 million business custmers and chosen by over 15,000 MSPs worldwide, doubling each year. Currently, over 10,000 of those MSPs choose to grow their business with Acronis Cyber Protect, the world’s first natively integrated cybersecurity and data protection solution.

Realizes 90% post-migration reduction of data movement/copy requirements; 30% improved compute and delivery times

SAN MATEO, CA – August 2, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Alluxio, the developer of open source data orchestration software for large-scale workloads, today announced that Aunalytics, a leading data platform company delivering Insights-as-a-Service for enterprise businesses, deployed Alluxio’s Data Orchestration platform as a key component of its digital transformation strategy resulting in an up to 90% post-migration reduction of their data movement/copy requirements and improved compute and delivery times by up to 30%.

As an early adopter of Hadoop technologies, Aunalytics generated operational overhead it was now looking to eliminate. Aunalytics planned to implement the next generation of its compute platform which sought to completely segregate storage, compute, and delivery for ease of development and scale, with an adaptive data platform (Aunsight™) which is capable of submitting workloads to many compute services sourcing data from many storage environments.

Challenged with centralizing on a well-known storage environment such as NFS, iSCSI, etc. which would be fraught with performance, consistency, and concurrency issues; or adopting a many/any storage environment with a single point of access for those systems, the team adopted Alluxio. This provided a centralized data I/O interface to simplify integrations with newer compute engines going forward.

“The combination of Aunalytics cloud-native data analytics platform coupled with Alluxio’s open-source data orchestration software enables customers to harness the power of universal data access across all data sources and derive AI-driven answers for competitive advantage,” said Tom Panozzo, Analytics Cloud CTO, Aunalytics.

Alluxio presents Aunalytics compute environments with a single point of access for all stored data regardless of its volume, velocity, or storage I/O performance capabilities. This allows the team’s developers to focus on analytics integrations irrespective of storage environment limitations or compatibility. Alluxio is the primary data access and write mechanism for the batch compute environment, dynamic query environment, and primary product DaybreakTM.

“Alluxio has allowed the Aunalytics team to leverage its existing legacy Hadoop storage, new private-cloud storage, and future bulk object storage for cost-efficient, scalable storage flexibility over time,” said John Mracek, SVP, Sales and Marketing, Alluxio. “Aunalytics avoids the complexity of supporting legacy environments as the platform continues to evolve. We are excited to further our collaboration with Aunalytics as they continue to leverage open source compute projects adjacent to the Daybreak product, supported by Aunsight and Alluxio, in the AI workspace to deliver collective products.”

August 01, 2020

The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last decade has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many startups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer. Some of these companies are pure enablers, while others combine enablement functions with direct-to-market services. Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the cloud backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):
1/ Pure Enabler
2/ Enabler & Service Provider – Channel or Direct
3/ Service Provider – Channel Only
4/ Service Provider – Channel and Direct
5/ Service Provider – Direct Only (For complete list of companies, see our top monthly ranking list)

Based on a number of factors, such as technology, features, easy of use, dedication to MSPs, channel, revenue structure, reputation, support, price entry point, value, and corporate culture of the companies, we have summarized our rankings.

The companies are categorized in their respective columns. If we have made an error in the category or companies have changed their business plan and as a result need to be categorized in a different column, please let us know.

Brings Immutability and Automation for Ransomware Resilience

BOSTON, MA – July 29, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Zerto, an industry leader in cloud data management and protection, has announced the general availability of Zerto 9, significantly advancing its capabilities in the fight against ransomware. Offering powerful new immutability and automation features, Zerto 9 also provides enhanced cloud data management and protection capabilities for end users and managed service providers, new backup capabilities including support for additional cloud platforms, and cloud tiering to deliver secure and cost-effective archive storage and simplified management.

Ransomware attacks continue to grow in severity and volume, bringing increasing costs and growing financial, legal, and even political ramifications. Organizations must invest in technology that allows them to recover and resume operations quickly following a ransomware attack, not just protect against it. Based on a foundation of 12 years of expertise with continuous data protection (CDP), Zerto enables organizations to move on from a ransomware attack with minimal data loss and downtime by allowing users to rewind and recover data with granularity from any point in time—and do so within seconds of a disruptive event.

Zerto 9 enables immutability settings for long-term data retention to be easily managed from within the Zerto user interface. As a result, users can set how long backups can remain unaltered, safeguarding them to the cloud to prevent malicious deletion or modification of data, including ransomware. In this release, immutability support is available for Amazon S3.

“Zerto 9 enables organizations to defend their business from the consequences of ransomware, and with fully orchestrated failover and failback, organizations can recover infected applications and data from just seconds back,” said Deepak Verma, vice president, product management for Zerto. “With just a few clicks, our journal-based recovery is flexible enough to recover only what is needed, whether that’s files, virtual machines, or an entire application stack from a point-in-time. As ransomware attacks continue to escalate, these are game-changing capabilities that we have had built into our platform for many years now, and they just keep getting better with every release.”

“It’s vital to keep our infrastructure and data safe from the risks associated with ransomware,” said Alan Barrett, head of IT, TWM Solicitors LLP. “By adopting Zerto, we are maximizing the protection of our systems, and in the event of a malware attack, we can rewind and recover data with granularity from any point in time and do so within seconds of a disruptive event with minimal data loss and downtime.”

Zerto 9 adds new automated VM protection to ensure complete, flexible data protection across each environment even when new VMs are added. Using native vSphere tags, servers can now be instantly added to Virtual Protection Groups (VPGs) without any manual configuration to quickly protect workloads with new or existing protection groups and apply existing SLA rules, including pre-validation and alerts.

New instant restore has been added so that Zerto users can restore VMs straight into production easily and quickly without having to worry about failing over to a DR site first or running out of resources on overtaxed backup appliances. Preserving journal checkpoints allows users to revert to other points in time quickly for the same VM if the selected restore point does not meet requirements. This has been coupled with restore of files or directories by downloading them or by restoring them directly into its original location from any long-term retention (LTR) repository such as public cloud.

New Capabilities for End Users and Managed Service Providers
Zerto 9 continues to advance its backup and disaster recovery capabilities to include new support for additional cloud platforms and new cloud tiering to deliver secure and cost-effective archive storage and simplified management for both end users and managed service providers.

For instance, long-term retention repositories can now be stored on S3-compatible on-premises or cloud storage such as Cloudian. In addition, users can also tier LTR data to Amazon S3-IA and S3 Glacier as well as Azure Blob Cool and Archive storage classes by defining retention policies within Zerto 9. Native cloud APIs to tier backups are leveraged to eliminate compute costs associated with tiering data in public cloud.

Backup is now managed within its own separate context within the Zerto user interface. A new type of virtual protection group (VPG) called local continuous backup VPG enables easy configuration and management of CDP-based backups and long-term retention of VMs. This new VPG provides users with the ability to segregate less critical VMs which require only backup and restore from the critical VMs that need full Zerto disaster recovery features.

“As a bank, it’s critical that our services are available to our customers 24/7/365 and free from disruptions, and Zerto makes us confident we can deliver on that,” said Steve Walcott, senior server specialist, FirstCaribbean International Bank. “Zerto gives us the continuous data protection we need, and we’re very excited about the enhanced cloud services in Zerto 9. Being able to securely and cost-effectively manage more data in the cloud will help keep the business nimble and our customers satisfied.”

Users can find training on the advanced Zerto 9 capabilities in several updated hands-on labs, including recovering from ransomware in a safe lab environment. New and updated Zerto 9 labs can be found in myZerto or by getting started at zerto.com/labs.

Zerto is also proud to announce that it’s been named as a new entrant into the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solutions. Zerto is thrilled to be included in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant as it demonstrates a milestone in Zerto’s journey as a valid player in the backup market. Zerto 9 continues to advance the company as a formidable, converged backup and disaster recovery vendor.

Enterprise Cloud File Storage Leader Advances CMO to Oversee Nasuni’s Go-to-Market Operations

BOSTON, MA – July 28, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today announced the promotion of David Grant to Chief Commercial Officer. For two years, Grant held the position of Chief Marketing Officer and in his new role, he will be responsible for all of Nasuni’s go-to-market activities across sales, marketing and alliances.

“We are coming off a record year for Nasuni disrupting the massive enterprise file storage market with a cloud-based approach. Even before 2020, enterprises had to change the way they enabled remote access to data but the pandemic put fuel on that fire,” said Paul Flanagan, Chief Executive Officer at Nasuni. “Dave has been an integral part of what we’ve accomplished and the sales and marketing machine he’s built will drive our aggressive growth rates.”

In his prior role, Grant was responsible for lead generation, brand, sales enablement and alliances. As Chief Commercial Officer, he will also oversee Nasuni’s global sales, channel, account management and sales engineering operations.

Grant has more than 20 years of experience leading marketing for enterprise software companies at all stages of growth, including multi-billion dollar enterprises. He has proven that he can help innovative companies grow their go-to-market strategies and expand into new markets. Before joining Nasuni, Grant helped Veeam Software accelerate growth in cloud data management as Senior Vice President of Global Marketing. Prior to Veeam he was VP of Marketing at VMware.

“The enterprise file storage market is ripe for disruption. Most infrastructure has benefited from the simplicity and economics of the cloud, but the file server and Network Attached Storage (NAS) markets have lagged behind. Traditional storage vendors have tried to cloud-wash their technology, but they cannot deliver on the promise of the cloud with their dated technology,” said Grant. “Nasuni is the only file storage built cloud-first, using object storage to enable the largest organizations in the world to revolutionize how they store, protect, analyze and access their unstructured data.”

By selecting Nasuni’s file storage built for the cloud, organizations of all sizes are pursuing digital transformation with cloud-first strategies, and realizing significant cost savings as compared to just extending traditional on-premises file storage. Nasuni’s partnerships with Google, AWS and Azure allow enterprises to empower users with local, NAS-like performance, no matter their location, coupled with the cloud object storage platform that best suits the business’ needs, resulting in as much as 70% cost savings over traditional legacy approaches.

According to Bitdefender’s 2020 Consumer Threat Landscape Report, which provides an overview of the evolution of threats year-over-year and on a quarterly basis, reported that ransomware attacks increased by a staggering 485% in 2020 compared to 2019. And, according to PurpleSec, the estimated cost of ransomware attacks was $20 billion in 2020, up from $11.5 billion in 2019, and $8 billion in 2018. 2021 is already shaping up to be the worst year yet, with “ransomware as a service” such as REvil and NetWalker, as well as other new entrants like Conti, becoming increasingly available, intelligent, aggressive, expensive and public.

“The percentage of victims that submit a ransom payment and then, either don’t get their data back, get some data back but it is corrupted and/or experience another attack soon after from the exact same cybercriminals is climbing rapidly,” said Mike Lutz, General Manager, Image One Corporation. “This combined with the almost irreparable damage being done to reputations, payments being made into the millions and increasing regularity of lawsuits, makes it clear why ransomware has climbed to the top of the priority list across federal, state and local government and general commercial sectors.” He continued, “The Nexsan Unbreakable Backup provides our clients with an invaluable solution for ensuring that their data is protected so they can avoid becoming a statistic.”

“Nexsan’s Unbreakable Backup doesn’t require replacing current infrastructures because they are vendor neutral,” said Luke Wilke, Account Manager, Trilogy Innovations. “This is highly appealing to our clients as they can ensure ransomware protection, while safeguarding their other investments. Nexsan Assureon has a solid 15-year history of recovering and protecting data, this speaks volumes to their dedication to customers.”

“Over this past year, the work from home (WFH) paradigm helped to drive the increase in ransomware success. One reason was that the virtual overnight shift to WFH left many organizations scrambling to provide secure data access and communication, which was many times easier said than done. The other less talked about reason was that there was a population of skilled IT professionals that could now stay home without anyone looking over their shoulders and took-on cybercrime as their side-gig. Or, for some that lost their jobs and now had time on their hands, they found that they could potentially make millions from cybercrime,” said Charles Burger, Director of Assureon Cybersecurity Solutions at Nexsan, a StorCentric Company.

“Cybersecurity is a top business priority for StorCentric solutions. Ransomware schemes continue to evolve and grow, this includes ransomware as a service (RaaS). Cyber criminals retain this service to attack companies on their behalf – with the RaaS keeping a percentage of the ransom payment for themselves,” said Mihir Shah, CEO, StorCentric. “The truth is, you can do everything right to protect against cybersecurity threats, but chances are security breaches will happen. Ransomware hits organizations – whether they know it or not – thousands of times every day.”

StorCentric offers the most robust, end-to-end ransomware protection solutions in the industry, recognizing that today, it’s not enough to just protect your data from ransomware, you must be able to recover should you fall victim to a successful attack.

Solutions include:

– Nexsan Unbreakable Backup – UnityTM plus Assureon® delivers an immutable Unbreakable Backup solution that works alone or alongside existing IT assets to enhance and fortify the user’s ability to protect, detect and recover. Its industry unique features include:

– File Fingerprinting – Secure Digital Fingerprints utilizes a combination of two cryptographic hashes for a unique file identifier.

– File Redundancy – Makes two copies of the file and its fingerprint are stored in a separate RAID disk set either in the same system or a remote one.

– File Serialization – Serial numbers are assigned to each individual file to ensure no files are changed, missing, or inappropriately added.

– Secure Timestamp – Use of a global, redundant, secure time source using Stratum Level 1 hardware time sources to ensure accurate time stamp.

– Auto File Repair – Continually verifies against fingerprints and repairs using copies and safeguarded by RAID disk arrays for days or even decades.

– Regulatory Compliance – Governmental and Corporate compliance of HIPAA, GLBA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP), SEC 17A-4 and PCI DSS.

– Cloud/Software Edition – Flexibility to implement in the cloud, hybrid cloud or on-premise.

– Storage Optimization – Archiving unstructured and infrequently used data frees up primary data and dramatically reduces the size, time and cost of the backup process.

– Data Longevity – Ensures adherence to guidelines for data retention, disposition, privacy, protection, chain of custody, litigation readiness and risk mitigation.

– Retrospect Backup Software – Retrospect Backup integrates seamlessly with object locking, also referred to as Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) storage or immutable storage, from today’s leading public cloud vendors. Users can mark objects as locked for a designated period of time, preventing them from being deleted or altered by any user, even if the ransomware “takes a ride” to the user’s cloud vendor(s) during any backup action.

New advance pack boosts MSPs’ services by extending Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s essential file sharing service with electronic signatures, blockchain-based notarization, and compliance-enabling data security

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – July 28, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today announced a new advanced protection pack for its service provider solution, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. The new Advanced File Sync and Share pack builds on the essential file-sharing capabilities included in Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, layering additional data security capabilities such as blockchain-based data notarization and electronic signatures so service providers can strengthen their workplace collaboration services.

Demand for secure file sync and share services has skyrocketed during the past 18 months as 88% of organizations worldwide required employees to work from home1 and the same percentage of employees expect to keep working remotely to some degree2. As a result, 67% of businesses spent more on remote tools and web conferencing3.

While those trends create opportunities for managed service providers (MSPs) that deliver IT to small- to medium-sized businesses, the challenge is that traditional file sharing solutions do not address the data protection concerns of modern organizations – including control over storage locations, access to data, and what people can do with that data.

“Every survey and trend indicates remote work is here to stay, so MSPs need a way to keep client employees productive and safe when accessing and sharing valuable company data,” said Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis. “Unlike traditional file sharing solutions that are not built for service providers, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced File Sync and Share delivers a secure work collaboration service that empowers MSPs with multi-tiering and multi-tenancy. And since it’s integrated with our full range of backup, cybersecurity, and endpoint protection management, partners can deliver it all through a single management console.”

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud gives essential cyber protection capabilities to managed service providers (MSPs) that they can build their services on – including file sync and share on a pay-as-you-go basis. The new Advanced Files Sync and Share pack empowers them with enhanced data security that traditional work collaboration solutions do not offer:

File notarization, powered by the Ethereum blockchain, enables clients to notarize files of any format and type, providing irrefutable proof that a file is original and unaltered. In a world where criminal use of digital editing and deepfake technology for fraud and forgery is rapidly accelerating, such notarization eliminates the risk of logs, records, videos, or images being altered.

Electronic signatures, which enable multiple people to sign a document remotely. The simple drag-and-drop feature helps clients along every step of their document flow – from creation to distribution to signature. The eSigning service also creates a blockchain-based certificate to ensure the authenticity of the signature and document.

In both cases, the blockchain-based certificate creates an immutable audit trail, ensuring data authenticity. Combine that with the ability to select where client data is stored, and MSPs have all they need to deliver the compliance, data sovereignty, and performance required by clients in even the most regulated industries.

Additional enhancements announced
The launch of Advanced File Sync and Share is part of the regular monthly enhancements made to Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, which ensure service providers can offer the most complete and up-to-date cyber protection possible.

Other improvements announced include:

  • Full support and integration with VMware vCloud Director. Cloud providers hosting with vCloud Director can now offer Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s full range of cyber protection capabilities, with no client-side deployment and per-tenant reports for flexible billing.
  • Proactive notifications after Microsoft 365 data recovery. Clients can react quickly with proactive notifications following the recovery or downloading of backed-up data on Microsoft 365.
  • “Restore Operator” role for Microsoft 365/Google Workspace. MSPs can protect client data and prevent accessibility when assigning the “Restore Operator” role, which allows the assignee to recover data on behalf of the client/user without providing access to the content.
  • Advanced audit trail in eSignature certificate. Service providers can know the exact status of a document by viewing a detailed audit trail and tracing the flow of actions within the signature certificate.
  • Easily and selectively restore backed-up pictures and videos for Android 2.3.0. Saves time by restoring only the pictures or videos needed by quickly and easily selecting multiple files at once; by days, sequentially.
  • Backup slice management for Android 2.3.0. MSPs can view, select, delete, or restore any mobile backup slices of their choice through this intuitive slice management capability.

New third-party integrations
Service providers need to build their offering using the tools that work for them. That’s why, to ease their administrative efforts, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud is integrated with the commonly used RMM and PSA tools IT service providers rely on. As part of the July 2021 enhancements announced, the company also revealed four new integrations, including ConnectWise Command, Jamf Pro, CloudBlue PSA, and Matrix42.

Any service provider interested in learning more about Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced File Sync and Share is encouraged to view a demonstration at the Acronis Demo Center or go to https://www.acronis.com/en-us/products/cyber-protect/

– Data breaches cost surveyed companies $4.24 million per incident on average; highest in 17-year report history

– Adoption of AI, hybrid cloud, and zero trust approach lowered data breach costs

CAMBRIDGE, MA – July 28, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security today announced the results of a global study which found that data breaches now cost surveyed companies $4.24 million per incident on average – the highest cost in the 17-year history of the report. Based on in-depth analysis of real-world data breaches experienced by over 500 organizations, the study suggests that security incidents became more costly and harder to contain due to drastic operational shifts during the pandemic, with costs rising 10% compared to the prior year.

Businesses were forced to quickly adapt their technology approaches last year, with many companies encouraging or requiring employees to work from home, and 60% of organizations moving further into cloud-based activities during the pandemic.1 The new findings released today suggest that security may have lagged behind these rapid IT changes, hindering organizations’ ability to respond to data breaches.

The annual Cost of a Data Breach Report, conducted by Ponemon Institute and sponsored and analyzed by IBM Security, identified the following trends amongst the organizations studied:

  • Remote work impact: The rapid shift to remote operations during the pandemic appears to have led to more expensive data breaches. Breaches cost over $1 million more on average when remote work was indicated as a factor in the event, compared to those in this group without this factor ($4.96 vs. $3.89 million.)2
  • Healthcare breach costs surged: Industries that faced huge operational changes during the pandemic (healthcare, retail, hospitality, and consumer manufacturing/distribution) also experienced a substantial increase in data breach costs year over year. Healthcare breaches cost the most by far, at $9.23 million per incident – a $2 million increase over the previous year.
  • Compromised credentials led to compromised data: Stolen user credentials were the most common root cause of breaches in the study. At the same time, customer personal data (such as name, email, password) was the most common type of information exposed in data breaches – with 44% of breaches including this type of data. The combination of these factors could cause a spiral effect, with breaches of username/passwords providing attackers with leverage for additional future data breaches.
  • Modern approaches reduced costs: The adoption of AI, security analytics, and encryption were the top three mitigating factors shown to reduce the cost of a breach, saving companies between $1.25 million and $1.49 million compared to those who did not have significant usage of these tools. For cloud-based data breaches studied, organizations that had implemented a hybrid cloud approach had lower data breach costs ($3.61m) than those who had a primarily public cloud ($4.80m) or primarily private cloud approach ($4.55m).

“Higher data breach costs are yet another added expense for businesses in the wake of rapid technology shifts during the pandemic,” said Chris McCurdy, Vice President and General Manager, IBM Security. “While data breach costs reached a record high over the past year, the report also showed positive signs about the impact of modern security tactics, such as AI, automation and the adoption of a zero trust approach – which may pay off in reducing the cost of these incidents further down the line.”

Impact of Remote Work and Shift to Cloud on Data Breaches
With society leaning more heavily on digital interactions during the pandemic, companies embraced remote work and cloud as they shifted to accommodate this increasingly online world. The report found that these factors had a significant impact on data breach response. Nearly 20% of organizations studied reported that remote work was a factor in the data breach, and these breaches ended up costing companies $4.96 million (nearly 15% more than the average breach).

Companies in the study that experienced a breach during a cloud migration project had 18.8% higher cost than average. However, the study also found that those who were further along in their overall cloud modernization strategy (“mature” stage) were able to detect and respond to incidents more effectively – 77 days faster on average than those who were in early-stage adoption. Additionally, for cloud-based data breaches studied, companies that had implemented a hybrid cloud approach had lower data breach costs ($3.61m) than those who had a primarily public cloud ($4.80m) or primarily private cloud approach ($4.55m).

Compromised Credentials a Growing Risk
The report also shed light on a growing problem in which consumer data (including credentials) is being compromised in data breaches, which can then be used to propagate further attacks. With 82% of individuals surveyed admitting they reuse passwords across accounts, compromised credentials represent both a leading cause and effect of data breaches, creating a compounding risk for businesses.

  • Personal Data Exposed: Nearly half (44%) of the breaches analyzed exposed customer personal data, such as name, email, password, or even healthcare data – representing the most common type of breached record in the report.
  • Customer PII Most Costly: The loss of customer personal identifiable information (PII) was also the most expensive compared to other types of data ($180 per lost or stolen record vs $161 for overall per record average).
  • Most Common Attack Method: Compromised user credentials were the most common method used as an entry point by attackers, representing 20% of breaches studied.
  • Longer to Detect & Contain: Breaches resulting from compromised credentials took the longest to detect – taking an average of 250 days to identify (vs. 212 for the average breach.)

Businesses That Modernized Had Lower Breach Costs
While certain IT shifts during the pandemic increased data breach costs, organizations who said they did not implement any digital transformation projects in order to modernize their business operations during the pandemic actually incurred higher data breach costs. The cost of a breach was $750,000 higher than average at organizations that had not undergone any digital transformation due to COVID-19 (16.6% higher than the average).

Companies studied that adopted a zero trust security approach were better positioned to deal with data breaches. This approach operates on the assumption that user identities or the network itself may already be compromised, and instead relies on AI and analytics to continuously validate connections between users, data and resources. Organizations with a mature zero trust strategy had an average data breach cost of $3.28 million – which was $1.76 million lower than those who had not deployed this approach at all.

The report also found that more companies were deploying security automation compared to prior years, leading to significant cost savings. Around 65% of companies surveyed reported they were partially or fully deploying automation within their security environments, compared to 52% two years ago. Those organizations with a “fully deployed” security automation strategy had an average breach cost of $2.90 million – whereas those with no automation experienced more than double that cost at $6.71 million.

Investments in incident response teams and plans also reduced data breach costs amongst those studied. Companies with an incident response team that also tested their incident response plan had an average breach cost of $3.25 million, while those that had neither in place experienced an average cost of $5.71 million (representing a 54.9% difference.)

Additional findings from the 2021 report include:

  • Time to respond: The average time to detect and contain a data breach was 287 days (212 to detect, 75 to contain) – which is one week longer than the prior year report.
  • Mega breaches: Average cost of a mega breach was $401 million, for breaches between 50 million and 65 million records.This is nearly 100x more expensive than the majority of breaches studied in the report (which ranged from 1,000-100,000 records.)
  • By industry: Data breaches in healthcare were most expensive by industry ($9.23m), followed by the financial sector ($5.72m) and pharmaceuticals ($5.04m). While lower in overall costs, retail, media, hospitality and public sector experienced a large increase in costs vs. the prior year.
  • By country/region: The US had the most expensive data breaches at $9.05 million per incident, followed by Middle East ($6.93m) and Canada ($5.4m).

Methodology and Additional Data Breach Statistics
The 2021 Cost of a Data Breach Report from IBM Security and Ponemon Institute is based on in-depth analysis of real-world data breaches of 100,000 records or less, experienced by over 500 organizations worldwide between May 2020 and March 2021. The report takes into account hundreds of cost factors involved in data breach incidents, from legal, regulatory and technical activities to loss of brand equity, customers, and employee productivity.

Demonstrating the Power of Decentralized Compute and Storage

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 27, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Akash Network, an open-source, decentralized cloud announced they have teamed up with Filebase, the world’s first object-based storage platform to deliver multi-cloud, decentralized web (dWeb) storage options for developers and enterprises.

Through this partnership, developers and enterprises now have the ability to pair dWeb applications with the thousands of existing backup tools, application SDKs and frameworks that they already know and love. By offering open-source dWeb compute and petabyte-scale object storage, Akash and Filebase can help to reduce cloud costs by up to 85 percent, compared to traditional cloud services.

“The Filebase API is S3 compatible, which allows developers to seamlessly leverage multiple decentralized storage networks for the first time,” said Joshua Noble, CEO and Co-founder of Filebase. “We’re excited to pair our S3 compatible access layer to decentralized storage networks, with the power and flexibility of Akash Network. We can’t wait to see what our ecosystem builds through the pairing of dWeb compute and multi-cloud storage as one.”

“Filebase is solving an onramp problem that’s exposing the mainstream developer community to decentralized storage,” said Greg Osuri, CEO of Akash Network. “We’re more than excited for the Akash community to have vendor-neutral storage options with a frictionless experience.”

A core goal of dWeb technology is to help people and organizations regain control of their computing and storage. By pairing Filebase and Akash, data can quickly migrate from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure, onto a decentralized network of cloud providers.

“Decentralized, blockchain-based infrastructure services are quickly establishing themselves as foundational elements for the potential next generation of cloud IaaS,” said Andrew Smith, Research Manager, Cloud Infrastructure Services at IDC. “These services bring differentiated technology to market which is applicable to real-world use cases like storage and compute cost reduction, data compliance, backup, archive, and long-term cold storage. The partnership between Filebase and Akash highlights the continued evolution and improvements to this emerging market segment.”
