TORONTO, ON – November 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Asigra Inc., a leading cloud backup, recovery and restore software provider since 1986, has announced the availability of a new report by Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) titled, “Trends in Creating MSP Value – A 2020 View.” The report informs managed services professionals on the issues of the Cloud Brokerage Model and how healthy channel relationships lead to greater profitability and long-term growth.

“The Global Managed Services Market is projected to continue to increase at an 11.5% CAGR from 2019 through 2024, and to reach $US319B by that year,” said Kevin Rhone, ESG Channel Acceleration Practice Director. “Progressive, effective partnering strategies are needed to capture this opportunity, and forward-looking tech vendors recognize that leading partners have a new set of priorities and challenges when serving their customers while maintaining profitability in the transformed world of IT. The best are taking steps to deliver more value from and through their relationships.”

Implementing a healthy business model is at the heart of any business strategy and this is true throughout the managed services space. Since the expansion of this market began, new technologies and solution delivery models have entered the scene to help managed service providers capitalize on the ongoing industry interest of cloud-based IT solutions. While many of these models are advantageous, one in particular – the Cloud Brokerage Model – presents greater risks than benefits to the profit and value minded MSP.

“Over the past several years, the cloud solution provider (CSP) Cloud Brokerage Model, where the partner acts more as a reseller than a true MSP, has made steady gains in the partner community,” stated the report. “It makes the transformation from reselling products to a services-led model easier for VARs with fewer barriers to entry and reduces time-to-market and monetary investments, specifically around setting up a data center capability and investing in technical skills and depth. As a result, many partners have embraced this option as a way to begin their transformation.”

“While MSPs may simplify their transition by adopting a CSP approach, they will now have given up control over very important considerations such as creating differentiation around technical, market, and application specializations; cultivating, expanding, and protecting the customer base around this differentiation; setting the branding, terms, and levels of unique as-a-service offerings,” added Rhone.

Instead of the Cloud Brokerage Model, experts propose a channel-healthy model where the MSP becomes the CSP.  There are several advantages of this approach, including:

  • Complete control over price/margins
  • Direction of all communications with clients
  • The protection of customer contacts
  • Greater control over the value of the business
  • Higher purchase price upon the sale of the MSP business

“MSPs are beginning to rethink their vendor relationships as they discover the financial and control pitfalls of the Cloud Brokerage Model,” said Eran Farajun, Executive Vice President, Asigra. “The problems start with recurring revenue declines and end with customer depletion. If involved in a business model where your customers are required to sign a separate licensing agreement, this should be a red flag that your customers are slowly being transferred to your technology provider’s control.”

Gaps in data sanitization knowledge and policies mean global enterprises are putting their organizations at risk of security and compliance breakdowns

AUSTIN, TX and LONDON, UK – Nov. 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — New research launched today by Blancco Technology Group (LON: BLTG), the industry standard in data erasure and mobile device diagnostics, outlines the current misconceptions that prompt so many decision makers to mistakenly choose inadequate data sanitization methods and put their organizations at risk. Blancco’s study, A False Sense of Security, produced in partnership with Coleman Parks, highlights how global enterprises’ overconfidence is exposing the organizations to the risk of data breach, at a time when proper data management should be at the forefront of everything they do. Three quarters (73 percent) agreed that the large volume of different devices at end-of-life leaves their company vulnerable to a data security breach, while 68 percent said they were very concerned about the risk of data breach related to end-of-life equipment.

This survey of 1,850 senior leaders from the world’s largest enterprises in APAC, Europe and North America reveals that more than one in three organizations take considerable risks with the way they sanitize data at end-of-life.

These risks include:

· Using inappropriate data removal methods – 36 percent reported using data wiping methods such as formatting, overwriting using free software tools or paid software-based tools without certification or physical destruction (both degaussing and shredding) with no audit trail. These methods are not fully secure and can leave businesses open to potential security and compliance issues. But what’s of particular concern is that 4 percent of these enterprises are not sanitizing data at all, leaving them wide open to attacks.

· Keeping large stockpiles of out-of-use equipment within the company and not dealing with them within a suitable time frame – 80 percent of enterprises admitted having a stockpile of out-of-use equipment sitting in storage and 57 percent reported taking longer than two weeks to erase devices, adding to the risks of potential internal data breaches and lost data.

· Failing to maintain a clear chain of custody with an appropriate audit trail for end-of-life assets, including during transportation to an offsite destruction facility – 17 percent of enterprises report not having an audit trail for the physical destruction process, and 31 percent admitted not capturing the drive serial number. This lack of chain of custody controls means these enterprises are running the risk of data breaches and non-compliance.

The research also reveals that 17 percent of global enterprises use physical shredding or degaussing for end-of-life devices, even though shredding does not always provide a true, certified audit trail that spans the full chain of custody lifecycle.

“Global enterprises are clearly concerned about data when devices reach end-of-life; however, despite knowing the risks involved, many still choose to use an inadequate approach to protect their organization,” said Fredrik Forslund, Vice President, Enterprise and Cloud Erasure Solutions at Blancco. “This points to a huge and worrying knowledge gap within the sector and among senior leaders about the security and compliance implications of physical destruction and end-of-life equipment lying around.”

Other key global findings include:

· A fifth (20 percent) of global enterprises (33 percent in U.S./Canada and the U.K.) do not have a different process for dealing with SSD drives compared to HDD drives and are running the risk of not having all the data appropriately sanitized and being in non-compliance with industry standards.

· The enterprises surveyed also reported that 18 percent of their devices are left somewhere within the company with no action. This highlights a huge security issue and one that should be dealt with immediately.

Key North America findings include:

· Enterprises in North America are using different data removal methods to remove data from their end-of-life devices. Fifteen percent are physically destroying devices (both degaussing and shredding), 13 percent are using formatting, 13 percent are using overwriting using free software tools, 10 percent are using cryptographic erasure/encryption and 8 percent are using overwriting using paid software-based tools without certification.

· Seventy-five percent of U.S. and Canadian respondents reported having end-of-life devices stockpiled in their storage. They also admitted leaving them unused for some time. Almost half (44 percent) of companies in North America wait more than two weeks before erasing end-of-life equipment.

· A majority (65 percent) of U.S. and Canadian respondents raised concerns about the risk of a data breach with end-of-life equipment, and 70 percent agreed that the number of different devices at end-of-life leaves them vulnerable to a data security breach. Nevertheless, 77 percent still have full confidence in the secure erasure for data sanitization within their organization.

Key UK findings include:

· Many U.K. enterprises reported using a variety of data removal methods. A fifth (22 percent) use formatting, 15 percent use cryptographic erasure/encryption, 11 percent use physical destruction (both degaussing and shredding), 6 percent use overwriting using free software tools and 5 percent use overwriting using paid software-based tools without certification. But what’s the most alarming is that 9 percent have no method to wipe data.

· Worryingly, 85 percent of U.K. enterprises also confessed having a stockpile of out-of-use equipment sitting in storage. In addition, enterprises are leaving devices unused for some time. Only 16 percent of U.K. companies said they are erasing end-of-life equipment immediately while 35 percent wait more than two weeks to erase devices, adding to the risks of data breaches and lost data.

· When asked about their security concerns over end-of-life equipment, 52 percent agreed that the plethora of different devices at end-of-life leaves them vulnerable to a data security breach while 57 percent were very concerned about the risk of a data breach with end-of-life equipment, the lowest percentage points from all the countries surveyed.

Sutter Hill Ventures Leads Oversubscribed Round Joined by New Investor Altimeter Capital and Existing Investor Index Ventures

SANTA CLARA, CA – Nov. 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Clumio, innovators of authentic SaaS for enterprise backup, today announced $135 million in series C funding on the heels of its August launch from stealth. In a very short time, the company has realized a strong market response and rapid enterprise customer adoption for its secure backup as a service highlighting the importance of the data protection problem that Clumio set out to solve. This momentum attracted the new round of funding that will enable Clumio to accelerate its vision to deliver a globally consolidated data protection service in and for the public cloud.

Series C is led by Mike Speiser, managing director of Sutter Hill Ventures and new investor Altimeter Capital – a global investment firm notable for funding Okta, Twilio, and Snowflake among other SaaS companies. Index Ventures, an existing investor, is also a participant in the round. This more than triples Clumio’s funding to date for a total of $186M through three rounds.

“Enterprise IT can no longer afford the time, complexity and expense of building and managing data protection solutions on-prem or in the cloud,” said Poojan Kumar, Clumio CEO and co-founder. “Unlike legacy backup vendors, Clumio SaaS is born in the cloud. This round of investment allows us to push that advantage as we accelerate our development and go to market strategy while continuing to meet customer requirements for backup, regardless of where the data is.”

IDC estimates the global market for SaaS applications revenues is expected to increase from approximately $100 billion in 2018 to more than $185 billion by 20221. Clumio is uniquely positioned to take advantage of this trend, giving enterprises a fast and effective way to make progress against organizational mandates to move workloads to the cloud or minimize the amount of time they spend on applications and operations that are not core to their businesses. According to IDC, the Data Protection as a Service market – which includes spend on backup, and disaster recovery cloud services – will grow to over $10 billion by 20222. Enterprises have already moved CRM, IT service management, HR and data warehouse workloads to the cloud. Clumio’s mission is to do the same for this large market.

“Similar to Snowflake disrupting the data warehousing market by leveraging the scale, elasticity and economics of the public cloud, Clumio is building a globally consolidated data protection service the right way,” said Mike Speiser, Managing Director, Sutter Hill Ventures. “Harnessing the full power of the public cloud, they are reimagining the backup experience for the enterprise paying particular attention to security, predictable costs and simplicity for their customers.”

This new funding will help Clumio execute in the following areas:

  • Accelerate the growth of its engineering team, both at the company’s headquarters in Santa Clara, CA and in its new development center in Bangalore, India
  • Expand go to market and service operations in the U.S.
  • Add more support for its 100% channel strategy with additional partner resources and programs and build upon momentum in technology partner programs with AWS, VMware and others
  • Introduce support for new workloads as Clumio continues to execute against its vision for a globally consolidated data protection service

Clumio is a secure, backup as a service that consolidates the protection of an enterprise data center and any remote sites with no hardware or software to size, configure, manage – or even buy at all. As enterprises move aggressively to cloud, they can use Clumio to protect workloads like VMware Cloud on AWS and native AWS services. Authentic SaaS protects data regardless of where it resides and delivers critical benefits to the enterprise:

Today, Clumio also announced a secure SaaS Backup for AWS that eclipses snapshot only protection strategies to reduce risk of data loss, increase security and lower retention costs. Full press release here

Platform leverages technical and market success in backup/recovery for hybrid clouds to enable application resiliency and agility of container-based workloads

SAN DIEGO, CA – November 18, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — KUBECON + CLOUDNATIVECON NORTH AMERICA—Data protection and application resiliency startup Trilio today announced the technical preview of TrilioVault for Kubernetes, and that TrilioVault has achieved Red Hat’s Container Certification. The Red Hat Container Certification and availability in the Red Hat container catalog is the company’s foray into supporting container-based workloads on Red Hat OpenShift after offering its core TrilioVault technology for Red Hat OpenStack and Red Hat Virtualization environments.

*** Visit Trilio at KubeCon North America this week in San Diego, booth SE64 to see a demo of TrilioVault for Kubernetes.***

The technical preview, presented this week at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America in San Diego, allows existing TrilioVault customers and partners as well as interested users an opportunity to learn more and view a demo of TrilioVault. Support for additional container application and infrastructure environments is planned for 2020.

The core Trilio technology is an agentless, software-only model that is self-service for multi-tenant environments that support high degrees of scale. TrilioVault, with its open and forever-incremental point-in-time backup schemas, can support any storage target, making it ideal for cloud-native environments where applications are built on Kubernetes.

The Red Hat Container Certification of TrilioVault is the company’s first step into the cloud-native space. The company’s goal is the delivery of a single, tightly integrated platform that supports application deployment velocity across the spectrum of public and private infrastructure environments that play a critical role in the multicloud strategies of both enterprises and managed service providers (MSPs).

“TrilioVault made significant inroads into the virtualization market by offering an agentless approach for scale-out, multi-tenant environments,” said David Safaii, CEO at Trilio. “Our core architectural approach is ideal not only for data protection in container environments that IT Infrastructure Managers crave, but also for application lifecycle management of those workloads for the DevOps community that aids in the acceleration of development cycles on an application’s journey into production. It’s an opportunity we plan to take full advantage of as more enterprise container workloads move to production in public and private cloud infrastructure deployments next year and beyond. Wherever container-based applications live, Trilio will be there to provide resiliency, recoverability and version control.”

“As a Red Hat Technology partner, Trilio has worked with Red Hat to serve Red Hat Cloud Platform customers for the past few years,” said Ashesh Badani, senior vice president, Cloud Platforms at Red Hat. “As customers make the multicloud journey, building upon a foundation of Red Hat OpenStack and Red Hat Virtualization to include containers and Red Hat OpenShift, they will frequently need operations support such as point-in-time backup, DR and application lifecycle management. Trilio’s technology platform can offer a more seamless user experience across public and private clouds, and with TrilioVault’s Red Hat Container Certification, it provides options for customers looking to a cloud-native future driven by Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift.”

In 2019, the TrilioVault product has seen substantial customer wins. The company now serves a diversity of enterprises in telecom, financial services, defense/government, automotive segments and MSPs. Trilio achieved success in the traditional backup and recovery market by offering customers the only native solution for the open infrastructure space coupled with usage- and subscription-based pricing, while the standard legacy solutions market storage and perpetual licensing.

As enterprises and MSPs move to support multicloud models, CIOs must manage workloads and data residing in multiple clouds. The TrilioVault platform captures application data and metadata and can move VM or container-based applications at any moment in time to another cloud.

Technical Preview Resources
Trilio customers, partners and others can learn more about the technical preview of TrilioVault for Kubernetes by visiting the Trilio booth: SE64 at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America, or by requesting a briefing: https://connect.trilio.io/kubecon-meeting-2019

New Service Eclipses Snapshot-Only Protection Strategies to Reduce Risk of Data Loss, Increase Security and Lower Retention Costs

SANTA CLARA, CA – Nov. 19, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Clumio, innovators of authentic SaaS for enterprise backup, today announced the expansion of its secure backup as a service to support native AWS services including Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS). With this announcement, Clumio is executing on its vision for a globally consolidated data protection service that can safeguard enterprise data in multiple public clouds, regions and cloud accounts with a single service.

Enterprises moving to the public cloud often rely solely on snapshots to protect data against loss, security, and compliance risks. While good for fast restoration of data to a specific point in time, this strategy opens vulnerabilities to bad actors, giving them access to both data and snapshots in the same cloud account. Longer term, snapshot retention is limited and costly, and they are useless for single file restore or global search capabilities. Moreover, managing snapshots per account, per region and per cloud is left to the end user. Clumio SaaS solves these challenges by securely protecting native AWS services, VMware Cloud on AWS and on-prem data center workloads with a single backup service.

“Copying the complexity of your on-prem backup infrastructure to the cloud becomes a difficult and very expensive task when you consider that the typical enterprise uses more than one public cloud and could have thousands of cloud accounts across multiple regions,” said Daniel Newman, Principal Analyst and Founding Partner, Futuruum Research. “Snapshot protection alone is not enough, yet who wants to spend precious IT resources building and maintaining backup software in the cloud. SaaS is being rapidly adopted to solve enterprise problems and backup is a very good candidate for that strategy.”

With the addition of EBS as a data source, Clumio customers can consistently protect volumes in the AWS public cloud alongside their VMware on-prem and VMware Cloud on AWS virtual machines. Simplicity of data protection in the public cloud is critical to enterprises and with Clumio’s global policy management across all data assets, the complexity of account-based snapshot management is alleviated. To ensure data is secure and protected against ransomware and bad actors, all data is encrypted at rest and in-flight with backup data residing outside of the customer’s AWS account in an immutable format. The power of Clumio SaaS is instant scale, global search, and quick restores at a file, volume, or application level.

“Enterprises demand data protection built from the cloud up to ensure data is protected in a simple and scalable way, as they accelerate their journey to the public cloud,” said Chadd Kenney, VP and Chief Technologist at Clumio. “Traditional backup solutions retrofitted for the cloud burden the user with the same technical debt and complexity they are trying to get away from in the first place. Clumio SaaS transforms the enterprise backup experience optimizing for simplicity and security.”

Clumio SaaS provides an entirely new backup experience to enterprise customers, from proactive support to transparent over-the-air software upgrades. Unlike the ineffective “call home” alerting provided by legacy hardware vendors, the Clumio experience includes continuous 24/7 monitoring of task and environmental issues and triggers for the creation of proactive support tickets. Users avoid the complexities of upgrading legacy backup products including planned downtime, on-call administrators, validation testing, and service downtime. Clumio patches, upgrades, and fixes are all delivered seamlessly over-the-air with no complicated upgrade planning required.

“As we continue to move aggressively to the cloud, it is important that we make sure that we are taking maximum advantage of the elasticity, economics and scale that the cloud has to offer,” said Jim Boyer, CIO, Rush Memorial Hospital. “When data is dispersed across regions and accounts and is expensive to move, a SaaS application like Clumio that is wholly focused on data protection will allow us to more quickly execute on strategic initiatives. My team also has tremendous appreciation for the simplicity and function of the Clumio service. The Clumio support experience is unique and prescriptive and they remediate issues in a timely manner.”

Clumio also announced today that it has raised an additional $135M in funding to accelerate this vision for data management in the public cloud. The oversubscribed C round was led by Sutter Hill Ventures and joined by new investor Altimeter Capital and existing investor Index Ventures. Full release here

Spectra TFinity Tape Library functions as an active archive for more than 60 petabytes of research data at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, enabling future expansion

BRACKNELL, U.K. – 18 Nov. 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spectra Logic today announced that the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) has deployed a Spectra® TFinity®.

ExaScale Tape Library in its Scientific Data Centre facility at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in Oxfordshire, with an initial capacity of 65PB and the scalability to meet future data demands. The Spectra TFinity library was deployed to function as an active archive for storing and managing the vast volumes of data from CEDA (the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis), which includes a unique environmental science supercomputer and data facility known as JASMIN, and from IRIS, an e-Infrastructure for astronomy and particle physics research.

  • Rutherford Appleton Laboratory - https://stfc.ukri.org/about-us/where-we-work/rutherford-appleton-laboratory/
  • CEDA – https://www.ceda.ac.uk/

The UK’s STFC is a world-leading multidisciplinary science organisation that supports an academic community of approximately 1,700 people who work in the UK and worldwide. Its Scientific Computing Department (SCD), based in the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), aims to drive improvements for scientific research. It manages high-performance computing facilities and services, developing the infrastructure that allows STFC to process huge volumes of data. The department is home to STFC’s Scientific Data Centre, which hosts the JASMIN facility and the IRIS project. SCD needed to increase its data storage and management capacity with a solution that could also run continuously and handlerequests from multiple applications concurrently.

“Our new Spectra tape library will allow the massive volumes of environmental data we collect to be made available to environmental scientists and support their research for many years to come,” said Professor Bryan Lawrence, JASMIN principal investigator, University of Reading.

The new Spectra TFinity Tape Library has an initial capacity of 65PB, with 48 drive bays and a mixture of 17 open-standard LTO-8 tape drives and 16 IBM® TS1160 tape drives. By implementing the latest tape drive technology in the new storage system, the SCD is prepared for future expansion. The TFinity tape library can handle simultaneous requests either by using multiple partitions in the library, or by having multiple robotic interface modules (RIMs) active in the same partition. Redundancies such as multiple tape access robots, power supplies, control paths and power distribution units mitigate failure and ensure the system will be able to run continuously, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.

A recent Kaspersky study revealed that in 65% of SMBs and 68% of enterprises, top tier management actively contribute to decisions about protecting their business from cyberthreats

Woburn, MA – November 14, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — A recent Kaspersky study revealed that, in 65% of SMBs and 68% of enterprises, top tier management actively contributes to decisions regarding how their business protects against cyber threats[1]. These statistics support the larger upwards trend of IT security managers being a part of IT decision making discussions. Additionally, C-suite involvement directly correlates to the size of IT security budgets, as companies who invest more heavily in IT security are more likely to have their executives involved in decision making processes.

As seen in Kaspersky’s report, “IT security economics in 2019: how businesses are losing money and saving costs amid cyberattacks,” top management executives must have a better understanding of IT security trends and risks. Alternatively, IT security professionals must be able to effectively communicate cybersecurity risks to a wider range of management executives to allow for better cooperation and a more transparent decision making process.

The survey also reveals that there is a distinct correlation between cybersecurity budgets and top management involvement across organizations of all sizes. For companies with a budget of more than $5m, the majority (72%) have executives take part in the financial aspect of IT security. For companies with smaller budgets, up to $25k for enterprises and up to $2.5k for SMBs, the percentage of those with C-level executives involved in budget decisions is around 50%.

In regards to specific budget size, companies in which C-level executives are involved in cybersecurity decision making are better suited to the global cybersecurity budget pace. In these companies, cybersecurity spending reaches $264k for SMBs and $18m for enterprises. These figures are almost equal to the average spending across all surveyed companies. For SMBs, budgets reached $267k in the present year compared to $256k in 2018, and for enterprises figures reached $18.9m in 2019, up from $8.9m last year.

kaspersky research finds two-third top executives make Cybersecurity decisions

“Cooperation between IT security teams and the board is beneficial for all businesses. If your company has not yet established this process, now is the right time to get started,” says Alexander Moiseev, chief business officer at Kaspersky.  “IT security teams should go to their top-level management, explain the risks and what they need to mitigate them, how much money they need and how they will spend their budget. This helps executives to understand the importance of IT security for their business and to invest in it according to the real risks.”

Manufacturing company expands into new markets and increases market share

Baar, Switzerland – 14 November 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup solutions that enables Cloud Data Management™, today announced that Svenska Fönster, one of Europe’s leading window manufacturers, chose Veeam Availability Suite™ and NetApp® ONTAP® to improve IT efficiency before increasing window production – a precursor to increasing market share.

“We had to be sure we could manufacture more windows in a shorter timeframe,” said Mattias Forslindh, IT Project Manager at Svenska Fönster. “The company had invested in a state-of-the art factory in Edsbyn and had hired and trained the best employees. Only one challenge remained: Legacy backup couldn’t keep up with business growth.”

Forslindh said taking and removing VMware vSphere snapshots during backup and replication was putting a tremendous burden on virtual machines (VMs), which created a performance bottleneck in production. Recovery was an issue too. “Recovering the four-terabyte VM that supports our resource planning (ERP) system could take up to two days, which was unacceptable to the business,” he said. “Our ERP system has to be available all the time because it keeps track of customers’ orders. If it’s not available, we can’t manufacture windows.”

Veeam integrates fully with NetApp ONTAP to ensure the ERP system is always available. Veeam orchestrates backup, replication and recovery through direct integration with NetAppONTAP storage snapshots and VMware vSphere, reducing the backup window from five hours to five minutes (98%) and increasing recovery speed to hours from days (89%).

“Veeam integration with NetApp was a game-changer for us,” Forslindh said. “We simplified data protection and improved IT efficiency, enabling us to support our company’s business strategy to increase market share. Data protection has become so fast and easy that we’ve also been able to improve our work-life balance.”

Inefficient IT operations had caused the IT team to work overtime. Even routine maintenance caused performance problems in production, so it had to be completed during evenings and weekends. “Veeam and NetApp reduced the administrative burden on our team, giving us back our evenings and weekends,” Forslindh said.

Provides regional support to protect businesses from emerging security threats to email, data and networks

Hong Kong – November 14, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Barracuda, a trusted partner and leading provider for cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced the opening of its Asia Pacific (APAC) headquarters in Hong Kong. Barracuda protects organisations from cyberattacks on email, data and networks both on their own networks and in the cloud, by providing a comprehensive and easy-to-use IT-security platform and best-in-class customer support. Building on its large research and development center in Bangalore, and existing presence in multiple countries, the APAC headquarters in Hong Kong will be a center for sales, marketing and team recruitment to serve the needs of customers in the region.

Research[1] suggests that the APAC region is at special risk to cybercrime because of its high digital connectivity, low cybersecurity awareness, mounting cross-border transactions and data, and relatively weak regulations. James Forbes-May, Vice President, Sales, Asia Pacific & Japan, Barracuda Networks said, “Technology has played a large part in the rapid economic growth of the region in recent decades. But as companies continue to leverage digital technology to accelerate their growth, they must be protected from the threats arising from cybercrime.”

Threats are becoming ever more complex and challenging, with email becoming a key battleground in Hong Kong. In the third quarter of 2019 alone, 849 phishing events (defined as sending fraudulent emails purporting to be from someone else in order to gain valuable personal data) related to Hong Kong were reported.[2] According to Barracuda, however, more challenging email scam techniques are taking over: so-called spear phishing takes place when a phishing scam is directed at a named individual.

James Forbes-May said, “As cybercriminals get smarter, the identities and authenticity of people sending phishing emails are getting more difficult to detect, so it’s even more important to make sure you have the right security technologies and processes in place. Our new APAC headquarters will further expand our foothold in the region to serve the cyber security needs of companies. We will strive to raise their awareness of the potential threats and guard the safety of their communications, networks and data. To enable our mission, we have already built a 25 strong team in Hong Kong across key functions including Sales, Marketing and HR with additional functions such as customer services coming as we continue to grow.

Associate Director-General of Investment Promotion at Invest Hong Kong, Mr. Charles Ng, said, “We are very excited to see Barracuda choose Hong Kong to be its regional headquarters. It will not only help companies in the region to mitigate their cyber security risk, but also strengthen Hong Kong’s status as a leading hub for information and communications technology in the region.”

vFilO™ Software-Defined Storage Seamlessly Assimilates Existing File Servers, NAS and Object Storage On-premises and in the Cloud into a Global, Scalable, Centrally-Managed Pool

READING, UK – November 14, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — DataCore Software today announced vFilO™ software, its next-generation distributed file and object storage virtualisation technology, that is uniquely designed to help enterprises organise, optimise, and control large volumes of data scattered on-premises and in the cloud. This newest addition to the company’s leading software-defined storage (SDS) portfolio complements data services provided by DataCore™ SANsymphony™ software for block-based storage. The two products can be used independently or together in midsize and large environments—scaling out from two instances and tens of terabytes to billions of files spread across numerous nodes.

Unifying and Consolidating Global Unstructured Data
vFilO provides both a scale-out file system for unstructured data, as well as the ability to virtualise existing storage systems. For organisations struggling to locate, share and protect files spread across multiple file servers, network attached storage (NAS) appliances and object storage, it assimilates those silos under a global namespace accessible via standard NFS, SMB and S3 protocols—leaving the data unchanged. When virtualising existing file systems, end-users enjoy the benefits of a next-generation platform minutes after beginning the process of assimilating their metadata.

As a result, data access is independent of data location. Entire collections of documents and multimedia content become accessible from a flat, global catalogue—a hallmark of object storage, but with the responsiveness and consistency of a high-performance distributed file system.

Intelligent Data Placement Optimises Cost, Performance, and Compliance
With a policy-based approach to performance, resiliency, cost, and aging, vFilO dynamically places data across available resources, ensuring proper access controls and load balancing in the process, which is impossible to achieve manually.

Frequently accessed, high priority data is placed on the fastest storage subsystem, whereas infrequently used data migrates to lower cost storage. Through machine learning (ML) based on real-time and historical telemetry, the software builds a clear picture of the performance and latency profile available from each subsystem to determine the storage location for each piece of data.

When appropriate, data is actively archived on public clouds or on-premises object storage, de-duplicated and compressed for substantial space and cost savings. Although archived, the data remains fully accessible, even if stored in the cloud or in a remote data centre, as the software transparently re-hydrates the file or object into one of the available subsystems without administrative intervention.

Business objectives and explicit policies also dictate when data should be moved, replicated and/or backed up to the cloud. Data availability and durability, as well as the frequency of snapshots, are all customisable at the file and object level or can be inherited from the directory or share they reside under.

An especially powerful feature is that vFilO makes it easy for users to quickly recover unintentionally deleted files without IT assistance or chewing up time and capacity on volume-level restores.

Delivering Multi-Petabyte Scalability and Rapid Response
vFilO software automatically distributes capacity and load over a scale-out cluster responsible for numerous storage subsystems, and can be installed on physical servers or virtual machines that are deployed in minutes. As with DataCore SANsymphony, vFilO distributed file and object storage virtualisation enables optimal use of hardware resources by parallelising concurrent requests, avoiding serial bottlenecks. It responds rapidly to peak workloads through extensive parallelism both within nodes and by load balancing across nodes in the highly available vFilO cluster.

Maximum performance is achieved by taking advantage of Parallel NFS technology, even when users access data using NFS, SMB, or S3 protocols, delivering low latency and high throughput for streaming and transactional workloads alike.

A Multi-Site, Global Virtual Software System for Unstructured Data
vFilO software pulls varied file and object storage subsystems together for a coherent view while splitting the load intelligently among them, replicating and actively archiving to lower cost cloud storage when appropriate. vFilO bridges the file and object worlds not only from an access protocol perspective but also the way data is managed and how it is stored, bringing the best of both worlds and eliminating the need for IT to choose and compromise.

Exploiting the Value of Metadata
A key architectural advantage of vFilO software is the true separation of data and metadata, making it possible to uncover ad-hoc relationships between file contents regardless of where they reside and who generated them. Simple natural language queries for keywords and tags from the global index of extensible metadata creates fresh new ways to extract value from data.

Universal Access
Apps running in virtual machines (VMs), bare metal servers and containers can employ their preferred access method to retrieve and update files, as can users from PCs, laptops and workstations running Windows, Linux, UNIX and MacOS.

NFS v4.2, NFS v3, SMBv3 and SMBv2 protocols as well as Kubernetes CSI for persistent volumes are all supported. Files may be accessed simultaneously through either method, regardless of how they were originally created.

“DataCore is known for storage virtualisation software that upgrades the performance, availability and/or functionality of existing structured storage to extend its life and provide unified management across multiple platforms,” said Eric Burgener, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, IDC. “With the introduction of its new vFilO software, they are now bringing these same benefits to unstructured storage, consolidating both on-premise and public cloud-based data sources under a global namespace that supports NFS, SMB and S3 data access methods. This gives existing DataCore customers the ability to streamline existing infrastructure even more comprehensively under a unified management interface, while at the same time providing a compelling value proposition for new customers looking to simplify storage management in heterogeneous environments.”

“The announcement of vFilO puts DataCore in a unique position to help drive the industry’s transformation from a hardware-centric to a software-defined model, a vision we call DataCore ONE,” said Gerardo Dada, CMO of DataCore Software. “The release of vFilO is a milestone in this transformation as it allows organisations to modernise existing systems, add new unstructured data storage capabilities, and take advantage of machine-learning data optimisation, including the ability to leverage hybrid clouds without having to go through a major overhaul.”

vFilO is priced per TB, with one price for active data and a lower price for inactive archives. The software will be generally available on November 20, 2019 from DataCore’s worldwide community of value-added partners.

About DataCore
DataCore Software delivers the industry’s most flexible, intelligent, and powerful software-defined storage solutions for block, file and object storage, helping more than 10,000 customers worldwide modernize how they store, protect, and access data. The company’s comprehensive product suite, intellectual property portfolio, and its unrivaled experience in storage virtualization and advanced data services, position DataCore as the authority on software-defined storage.

New Glacier Cloud interface for Bacula Enterprise’s extensive backup and restore system brings unique flexibility and further cost savings for its customers

WILMINGTON, Delaware – Nov. 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Accelerating its leadership in high performance backup and recovery for enterprises and managed services providers, Bacula Systems today announced its Amazon Glacier module. This new module not only benefits users wanting to back up data to the Glacier cloud, but also further increases Bacula’s unique flexibility to backup data across different Clouds and other storage destinations, while at the same time managing data recovery more easily – and where necessary, more quickly.

This addition complements Bacula Enterprise’s existing native integration with Azure, Google Cloud, Oracle Cloud and Amazon S3. “Bacula’s backup orchestration capabilities are especially well developed for a world where IT environments are becoming increasingly complex with on-premise, off-premise, private and public Clouds; all combined with the challenge of high data growth.

The company will also open its fourth Transparency Center, the first in Latin America, in São Paulo in January 2020

Woburn, MA – November 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky is progressing with the relocation of its data storage and processing infrastructure to Switzerland by moving data from customers from the United States and Canada. In addition, the company is announcing plans to open its first Latin American Transparency Center in São Paulo, Brazil in January 2020.

As a leading global cybersecurity company, Kaspersky has always been committed to the most trustworthy and strongest protection of its customers’ data. Moreover, the company has been continuously working to improve customer security by building effective data protection based on digital trust. Therefore, as part of its Global Transparency Initiative, Kaspersky has been adapting its data storage and processing infrastructure by moving core processes from Russia to Switzerland – starting with European users.

The company is now taking the next step by announcing that data from customers of the United States and Canada will also be moved and processed in Switzerland. This data is shared voluntarily with the Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) – an advanced, cloud-based system that automatically processes cyberthreat-related data. This includes suspicious or previously unknown malicious files that the company’s products send to KSN for automated malware analysis.

“All of us want to protect our own data,” commented Anton Shingarev, vice president for public affairs at Kaspersky. “That is an understandable demand in our digital world. But we need to know that we can trust our own choices in digital technology, like smartphones, laptops, mobile applications or cybersecurity solutions. Trust needs to be earned, and at Kaspersky we believe any company needs to constantly improve transparency and accountability in cyberspace. We are glad to proceed further with our big infrastructure project and, as promised, moving other regions in addition to European customers, whose data is processed in Swiss data centers.”

The company’s announcement was made at the Paris Peace Forum 2019, a second edition of an international global event that Kaspersky has supported as an early signatory of the Paris Call for Trust and Security in Cyberspace.

In addition, Kaspersky has announced plans to open a new Transparency Center in Latin America. It’s been exactly one year since the company established its first Transparency Center in Zurich – a dedicated security facility for trusted partners to review the company’s source code – and it proved to be an important and necessary tool for both existing and prospective Kaspersky customers to increase their confidence and trust in cybersecurity products and services.

Delivering on customers’ needs, earlier this year the company opened one more European Transparency Center in Madrid and announced the opening of its APAC Transparency Center in Malaysia, in addition to adding extended functionalities to the facilities. Kaspersky provides its visitors with the possibility to learn more about engineering and data-processing practices, as well as its product portfolio. At all of Kaspersky’s Transparency Centers, the company provides the opportunity to compile the company’s software from its source code and compare it with those that are publicly available. This move assures an unprecedented level of confidence in Kaspersky’s products, allowing them to run a compilation process with the assistance of the company’s experts.

“Our specifically developed ‘three-layer’ approach to security briefings has proved successful since it provides each partner with the most appropriate and needed type of support,” comments Mr. Shingarev“From sharing our transparency and data processing practices, to conducting a hardcore comprehensive source code review, we provide our partners with the information they need. No single cybersecurity vendor has gone as far in terms of transparency over its processes and technologies, and we are happy to take a lead to make the entire industry more open and reliable.”

Also, Kaspersky has been continuously working on its Bug Bounty Program. Since March 2018, the company has received and resolved 66 bugs. In total, 20 reports were rewarded with combined bounties totaling $45,350.

About Kaspersky
Kaspersky is a global cybersecurity company founded in 1997. Kaspersky’s deep threat intelligence and security expertise is constantly transforming into innovative security solutions and services to protect businesses, critical infrastructure, governments and consumers around the globe. The company’s comprehensive security portfolio includes leading endpoint protection and a number of specialized security solutions and services to fight sophisticated and evolving digital threats. Over 400 million users are protected by Kaspersky technologies and we help 270,000 corporate clients protect what matters most to them. Learn more at usa.kaspersky.com

Datrium DRaaS Connect Makes Cost-Effective, Reliable Cloud-based Disaster Recovery a Reality for All VMware Users, On-Premises and Cloud

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datrium, pioneer of the secure multicloud data platform for the resilient enterprise, today unveiled new capabilities for the recently announced Datrium DRaaS with VMWare Cloud on AWS solution. DRaaS now offers instant Recovery Time Objective (RTO) restarts from Datrium backups on Amazon S3—the lowest RTO with VMware Cloud of any Amazon S3-based DR system. Additionally, a new feature, DRaaS Connect, extends instant RTO DR to any vSphere environment. DRaaS Connect is available for two different vSphere deployment models. DRaaS Connect for VMware Cloud offers instant RTO disaster recovery from an SDDC in one AWS Availability Zone (AZ) to another. DRaaS Connect for vSphere On Prem integrates with any vSphere physical infrastructure on-premises. Now all VMware users, both on-premises and in the cloud, have access to cost-effective, reliable, cloud-based disaster recovery with instant RTO.

Unlike most cloud DR approaches, Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS is focused on VMware Cloud on AWS. It requires no conversion to alternative virtual machine or cloud formats, which compromise RTO and require fundamental retraining on a separate type of cloud administration. It also defends against ransomware; by offering direct access to older backups deduped on S3, it can offer a more complete, robust offering for the widest variety of outages. This combination of on-demand compute and low-cost backup storage give it exceptional economics. It offers VM images as runnable snaps to VMware Cloud as a live datastore, so failover is a matter of restarting VMs, not copying them back and rehydrating them from a separate archive which can take days – an additional compromise to RTO.

“In the increasingly hybrid world of IT, business-critical workloads are no longer limited to on-premises infrastructure,” said Steven Hill, senior analyst at 451 Research. “Protecting these portable, VMware-based applications calls for a disaster recovery strategy like Datrium’s new DRaaS platform that’s capable of providing instant RTOs—regardless of where the workloads and backup data reside—and can leverage the resilience and efficiency of S3-based object storage without a performance penalty.”

According to the State of Enterprise Data Resiliency and Disaster Recovery 2019 report, also announced today, ransomware is plaguing the enterprise data center, with nearly 90% of companies considering ransomware a critical threat to enterprise business, and this is driving the need for DR. The research also found that the public cloud is increasingly being considered as a DR site. The vast majority of respondents (88.1%) said they would use the public cloud as their DR site if they would only have to pay for it when they need it. The cloud offers greater ease of use and cost-efficient DR, solving several pain points that are holding organizations back from responding to DR events including the complexity of DR products and processes as well as high associated costs.

Fastest Restart in the Industry: Datrium DRaaS Delivers Instant RTO for Thousands of VMs from Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) to VMware Cloud
Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS is the first broadly available DRaaS solution for VMware Cloud based on backups on low-cost Amazon S3. It offers instant mass restarts of thousands of VMs from recent snapshots or backups even more than seven years old. The only cost during normal business operations—i.e., when not testing or deploying DR—is that of storing ongoing backups, which are automatically deduplicated, compressed and encrypted. In the event of a disaster, Datrium DRaaS provisions an on-demand SDDC in VMware Cloud on AWS for recovery. All the snapshots in S3 are instantly made executable on a live cloud-native NFS datastore mounted by ESX hosts in that SDDC, with caching on NVMe flash. Unlike traditional backup-based approaches to DR, Datrium DRaaS delivers the industry’s fastest RTO because there is no rehydration time required to copy backup data into an SDDC before restarting the virtual machines. Datrium DRaaS enables backups to be projected as a live datastore for DR in a simple, cloud-native design.

Datrium DRaaS Takes the Disaster Out of Recovery for All VMware Environments
Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS will now provide disaster recovery services for any vSphere infrastructure on-premises including SANs, NAS, HCI and DHCI, and any VMware workload in the public cloud. DRaaS Connect, lightweight software for any vSphere infrastructure and a new feature of DRaaS, will enable customers to start protecting VMs in minutes.

DRaaS Connect for vSphere On Prem extends Datrium DRaaS to any vSphere on-premises infrastructure and provides efficient replication of vSphere snapshots into DRaaS deduplicated, compressed, encrypted snapshot storage on Amazon S3. It will be managed by a DRaaS cloud-based control plane to define VM protection groups and their frequency, replication and retention policies. On failback, DRaaS will return only changed blocks back to vSphere and the local on-premises infrastructure through DRaaS Connect.

DRaaS Connect for VMware Cloud will enable DRaaS to orchestrate failover from a VMware Cloud SDDC in one AWS Availability Zone (AZ) to another AWS AZ. Snapshots of running VMs in the active AZ will be stored in the DRaaS repository on AWS S3. In the event of a disaster, these snapshots can be instantly restarted on ESX hosts in a different AZ, all based on well-defined runbook policies. Both DRaaS Connect options will be available in Q1 2020.

“Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS is radically transforming DR with its cloud-native design,” said Tim Page, CEO of Datrium. “It delivers failproof instant restart from ransomware and other types of disasters for any vSphere environment with unprecedented on-demand economics. It’s like pressing the easy button for DR.”

Channel Partners Embrace Datrium DRaaS to Transform the DR Market
Datrium also announced new technology partnerships and channel partnerships to drive accelerated adoption and expansion of Datrium DRaaS across the IT landscape. Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud provides VMware vSphere customers a low cost, fast and failproof approach to disaster recovery. Together, with AWS, Datrium offers long-term data retention, using Amazon S3 economically to help enterprises stay resilient in the face of disaster. Datrium DRaaS is now available through Datrium’s channel partners including Champion Solutions Group, Mindsight, PTS Data Center Solutions and Technologent.

Register for webinar with VMware and Datrium

“We talk with many enterprises who cannot afford the high cost of today’s DR solutions, but require some way to protect their data centers from disasters and ransomware,” said Mike Piltoff, senior vice president at Champion Solutions Group. “Datrium DRaaS with VMware Cloud on AWS will be a gamechanger for our customers because it is the first cloud DR solution where customers only pay for DR infrastructure when they need it rather than all the time. It is a cost effective, easy and reliable DR solution. Datrium DRaaS expands our horizons with new data management services with a very attractive ROI. We’re excited to offer it to our customers.”

Orange County Transportation Authority
“Developing and delivering transportation solutions for riders, drivers, and residents across 34 cities requires highly available and secure IT systems even during disasters,” said Michael Beerer, Senior Section Manager – Information Systems, Orange County Transportation Authority. “Our DR solution had to have low RTO for our users and the high reliability and security of a leading government service that could be audited, tested and verified regularly. Datrium DRaaS met all our demanding requirements while reducing our TCO by 80%.”

PTS Data Center Solutions
“For more than 20 years, PTS has helped IT teams solve some of their most difficult challenges,” said Pete Sacco, president and founder of PTS Data Center Solutions. “Ransomware attacks are making headlines on a daily basis and we want to ensure our customers are protected if they get hit or if disaster strikes.

The ability to rapidly have your systems back up and running with near-zero RTO and RPO is a giant leap forward for disaster recovery. It’s no longer about restore, it’s just a matter of rebooting.”

Ultra Petroleum
“Oil and gas is a regulated business that demands risk reduction and cost efficiency. Cloud backup and disaster recovery is critical to our IT success,” said Josh Rein, Network Manager, Ultra Petroleum. “The efficiency of Datrium’s DRaaS is great because I can instantly restart my entire datacenter on VMware Cloud on AWS from my backups on AWS S3—I get the best RTO in business for the least cost.

KANATA, ON – Nov. 13, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — HubStor Inc., a leader in cloud data management, today announced that the HubStor cloud data platform now includes integration with Box, giving customers an integrated backup and recovery, archiving, and discovery solution for their Box investment.

Many organizations desire a secure segregated backup of their cloud data residing in software-as-a-service offerings like Box. HubStor meets this need by integrating with Box APIs to maintain a synthetic full backup of a customer’s Box content in a single-tenant, SOC 2-compliant instance of the HubStor cloud data platform.

HubStor can recover data into Box, or export externally, at the item, folder, and user level.

In addition to backup and recovery, the HubStor integration with Box supports archiving and discovery with immutability, file analytics, content search, legal hold, and retention policies.

Comments on the News
“Multi-tenant software-as-a-service offerings do not provide self-service backup and recovery,” said Geoff Bourgeois, CEO at HubStor. “As organizations increase their adoption of cloud-based collaboration services such as Box and Microsoft Office 365, which run on multi-tenant architectures, there is a growing demand for HubStor’s single-tenant cloud data platform to provide a segregated and reliable backup of the data.”

About HubStor
HubStor is a cloud data platform that enterprises use for backup, file system tiering, compliance archiving, message journaling, content indexing and search, and application data retirement. HubStor is headquartered in Canada, maintains SOC 2 compliance, and is a Microsoft Co-Sell Prioritized partner.

Partnership to capitalize on a massive $200 billion cloud market

TORONTO, ON and ATLANTA, GA – November 12, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Densify, the leader in the Cloud Resource Management software market, and Veristor Systems, Inc., a leading provider of transformative business technology solutions, today announced a joint partnership to help their mutual customers optimize spend while achieving greater security and consistent performance from complex multi-cloud environments.

According to Gartner research more than $200 billion is spent annually in the public cloud, and yet, according to a recent Densify market survey, 66% of organizations run multi-cloud environments that are not dedicated to one specific cloud type. In addition, 55% of IT professionals admit to using “best guess” and “trial and error” as their main strategies for selecting the optimal cloud resources to run their applications. This can impact the security, performance and efficiency of multi-cloud environments.

Densify provides cloud and container resource management using patented machine-learning that learns the user’s cloud workloads’ usage patterns and makes recommendations on precisely which type of workloads to purchase. With pre-packaged reporting and analysis, customers gain immediate visibility into their cloud spend and usage, are able to run applications better, select the right workloads, and better understand and control their cost. Additionally, Densify customers are kept up to date with the latest developments across all cloud providers and optimization becomes a continual process. This is something many organizations find difficult or impossible to do on an ongoing basis.

“While cost reduction continues to be an important driver for cloud-based environments, it’s also important for customers to benefit from incremental functionality,” said Ferrol Macon, Vice President, Architecture and Strategy, Veristor. “When you are able to give clients confidence that their cloud applications are secure, high performing and continuously optimized, their people and infrastructure management become more efficient and they are better able to achieve the business goals they set for themselves by moving to a cloud operating model.”

Together, Densify and Veristor deliver the solutions and services that help customers get needed visibility across their hybrid cloud infrastructure. As a result, organizations are better able to execute against their cloud initiatives and reap cloud benefits, while avoiding unnecessary risk.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Veristor,” said Chuck Tatham, SVP of Business Development, Densify. “Their relentless focus on customer success along with innovative ways of addressing next generation infrastructure and proven process is very unique. We look forward to many successes together.”

Unique Capabilities Deliver Comprehensive and Secure Multitenancy

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Nov. 12, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, today announced that it has extended its mature Compass™ enterprise software-as-a-service backup platform with advanced features that bring tremendous value to service providers who sell Compass as their backup-as-a-service (BaaS) offering. Those advanced features, which are unique to Compass, allow service providers to manage complex environments with multiple tenants in a secure manner and provide those different users with appropriate access while reducing the service provider’s operational costs and improving the quality of service.

Compass was built from the ground up with multitenancy and extensive automation in mind. That means BaaS service providers can easily:
• Set up multiple users with different access privileges.
• Assign different pricing methodologies to different systems.
• Customize reporting and management with company logos.
• Integrate with existing accounting and service ticketing systems for automated billing.

Compass’ comprehensive multitenancy capabilities support complex organizational dynamics across an ecosystem of service providers, partners, customers and their internal organizations, and distributors. Support includes management, monitoring, visibility, chargeback, reporting, and resource utilization by organization.

“These capabilities are unique in the industry,” said Rodney Foreman, chief revenue officer at Cobalt Iron. “The robustness of Compass’ multitenancy features allows BaaS providers to bring great flexibility and value to their customers.”

Besides multitenancy, some of the other distinguishing features of Compass for service providers are:
• Cyber Shield™, Cobalt Iron’s built-in cybersecurity for Compass, which provides deep authentication control and data custody discipline.
• Extensive automation and analytics, which drastically reduce manual intervention and deliver a higher level of service.
• Enterprise and cloud-mature backup with on-premises or cross-cloud delivery options that handle even the largest and most demanding enterprise workloads across Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, and Alibaba Cloud.
• Flexible service branding that allows service providers and customers to brand their backup services as their own.

In addition, the Compass SaaS pricing and licensing model eases costs barrier and allows BaaS providers greater flexibility.

Service providers leveraging the Compass platform eliminate much of the overhead and complexity associated with delivering premier backup services to many customers. Overhead and complexity are handled automatically by Compass, allowing technical teams to break free from the daily grind and focus on technical initiatives that are more essential to the business. Compass’ advanced analytics automates most aspects of backup reporting, billing, and other operations for BaaS end users while also providing self-service capabilities.

“Cobalt Iron Compass is an ideal platform for service providers to deliver enterprise-class solutions that include data protection with efficiency, scale, and lower costs,” said Foreman. “Compass is unique in its combination of advanced multitenancy, deep security control and protection, cross-cloud mobility, and enterprise scalability and reliability.”

These capabilities are built into the intuitive web interface and delivered to all Compass customers — service providers or otherwise — as part of the basic offering. They are available now.

About Cobalt Iron
Cobalt Iron is the global leader in SaaS-based enterprise data protection. The company was founded in 2013 to bring about fundamental changes in the world’s approach to data protection. Through analytics and automation, Cobalt Iron enables enterprises to transform and optimize legacy backup solutions into a simple cloud-based architecture.

Market leadership is gained or lost by level of trust an organization can create

ARMONK, NY – November 12, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM’s 20th edition of its bi-annual C-Suite Study (NYSE: IBM), “Build Your Trust Advantage,” polled nearly 13,500 C-level executives across the globe to examine how companies are achieving market leadership by emphasizing trust in their use and sharing of data.

The study, conducted by IBM Institute for Business Value (IBV) in cooperation with Oxford Economics, surveyed C-Suite executives who oversee leading brands across 98 countries and 20 industries in today’s increasingly complex, data-driven world. The study found that market leadership is most frequently attained when an organization establishes a high level of trust in the data from its customers, its own business processes, and across its partner ecosystem.

Through the quantitative and qualitative surveys issued, it became clear there was a set of leaders, just 9 percent of the total respondents – dubbed “Torchbearers” – that stood out as understanding that transparency, reciprocity and accountability are critical ingredients for earning trust among key stakeholders. These leaders leverage data to build customer trust, create cultures of data-based decision makers and are adept at sharing data with ecosystem partners without giving away competitive edge. This group was found to outperform peers in revenue growth and profitability – delivering 165 percent higher results – as well as in innovation and managing change.

These leaders have a deep understanding that building trust in customer relationships is a strategic imperative and work hard to earn and maintain it. In fact:

  • 82 percent of leaders strongly believe data helps create a strategic advantage in strengthening their level of customer trust as well as their bottom lines.
  • Leaders also outpace their peers by 22 percent in their capacity to respect customers’ data privacy as a core competitive advantage.

This is critically important at a time when consumers report more concerns than ever before in their willingness to share personal information. A related IBM study on data privacy found that 81 percent of global consumers say that in the past year they have become more concerned with how companies are using their data.

Fortunately, the same study found that there is also greater willingness to share information with companies who are transparent in how their data is used – 81 percent said they actively support companies that are transparent about how they use their data, and they avoid doing business with companies that don’t. As a result, organizations that have earned customer trust are more likely to keep the data they have. They find their customers won’t ask them to purge it because they understand there’s value in collecting data to deliver new kinds of services in the future. In turn, leaders report much greater success with 71 percent using data to identify and deliver on unmet customer needs, compared to 28 percent of peers.

“Leading organizations that have put trust at the core of the way they use data with their customers are creating massive opportunities for greater success,” said Mark Foster, Senior Vice President, IBM Services and Global Business Services. “Today’s businesses need to be able to earn trust from their customers while also trusting the data from their own processes and ecosystems, or they will quickly fall behind their peers.”

While the study focuses on the need for transparency on how companies handle customer data, it also highlights the importance of trusting data that’s within an organization. Leaders were found to take great pains to ensure that the data within its own walls is accurate and clean so they can leverage it to make the best-informed decisions on important business ventures, such as developing new business models and entering new or emerging markets.

  • Eight in ten leaders say they and their C-Suite colleagues have deep trust in data to perfect the quality and speed of the decisions they make.
  • 70 percent already extensively use data to develop new business models (112 percent more their peers), while 66 percent already use data to make informed decisions on entering new markets.
  • 65 percent of C-suite executives believe that automation of decision-making processes will increase in their business landscape over the next 2-3 years.

The study also revealed an emphasis on the importance of creating trustworthy ecosystems. Data that simply stays within the organization is more likely to drift out of date than to grow in value. Leading organizations are liberating their data while simultaneously de-risking data exchanges in a shared ecosystem – allowing it to circulate widely, without sacrificing their responsibility to secure permissions and safeguard it. Deciding what data to share for win-win propositions— and what data to maintain as a proprietary advantage—is one of the most difficult decisions organizations have to make. Torchbearers are ahead of their peers:

  • 56 percent of leaders are already acquiring and sharing data extensively with network partners, and 85 percent expect their partner networks will expand in next few years.
  • Leaders expect the evolution of digital business platforms will necessitate a new approach to data sharing. For example, respondents from the most visionary banks shared that they expect to earn an average of 58 percent of their revenues from platform initiatives in the next three years.
  • 62 percent of leaders are already integrating new modes of monetization into their data strategies.

While the study provides the guidance that companies should always practice transparency, reciprocity and accountability when handling data and engaging customers and business partners, other recommendations include: 

  1. Strengthen relationships with customers by becoming trusted custodians of personal data, demonstrating transparency by revealing data about offerings and workflows, and using the trust advantage they’ve earned to create differentiating business models.
  2. Build confidence in data and AI models enterprise wide. Stimulate a culture of true data believers and data-based decision makers, and in turn, elevate experiences for customers and partners along their value chains.
  3. Learn how to share data on business platforms without giving away competitive edge. Turn the corner from amassing data to determining how best to monetize it, including how to build ecosystems to create new exponential value.

Patent covers deduplication technology, integrated into Bacula Enterprise to cover Physical, Virtual, Container and Cloud environments all in a single Enterprise Backup & Restore Platform

WILMINGTON, Delaware – November 12, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — Accelerating its leadership in high performance backup and recovery for enterprises and managed services providers, Bacula Systems announced today the issuance to it by the US Patent Office of a patent that answers to the increasing needs in the industry for effective and efficient data deduplication.

The patent for invention number 10,467,197 ( Patent: bit.ly/2pXXEsG ) is for creating a universally deduplicatable archive volume, and is the key part of a complete data deduplication process for backing up and restoring data in the fastest, most efficient manner possible. The technology has application for physical, virtual, container or cloud-based IT environments.

This method for advanced deduplication was invented by Dr. Kern Sibbald, who created and developed the code to be applicable in mission-critical, large enterprise environments. Dr. Kern Sibbald is the founder and leader of the Bacula community project and founder and Chairman of Bacula Systems SA.

As data volume grows, demand for effective deduplication technology within backup and recovery solutions increases, as more MSPs and large data centers are forced to deal with ever-expanding data, often with bandwidth and storage constrained infrastructures. “Like Bacula itself, this technology is extremely powerful, simple and robust. It solves the problem of data deduplication through a unique approach to how data is written and managed” said Kern Sibbald, Founder and Chairman, Bacula Systems.

“This patent protects our technology and allows data workflows to be more effectively managed, reducing time and saving on storage costs. Our customers around the world are already using this technology. This announcement adds confirmation to Bacula Systems leadership in developing backup and restore solutions for large, demanding IT environments,” said Frank Barker, CEO, Bacula Systems.

Bacula Systems customers include NASA, Texas A&M University, Swisscom, Sky and many more.

Google Cloud Customers Now Have an Enhanced Cloud-Native Solution to Overcome Legacy Backup Challenges

BOSTON, MA – November 12, 2019 — /BackupReview.info/ — HYCU, Inc., a pioneering enterprise software company specializing in data backup, recovery and monitoring for next-generation enterprise clouds, today announced major enhancements to its award-winning backup and recovery SaaS offering for Google Cloud Platform (GCP). As one of the industry’s leading cloud-native, software as a service backup and recovery solutions, HYCU now delivers one of the most cost-efficient data backup and cloud target utilization for backup workflows for GCP.

“Since the successful introduction of HYCU Backup as a Service for Google Cloud, we still felt there was a more efficient way of managing and protecting data, leveraging the power of Google Cloud without having to stand up a dedupe appliance or using unnecessary hardware or software infrastructure to support GCP data protection efforts,” said Simon Taylor, CEO at HYCU, Inc. “With no additional hardware or infrastructure required, and delivered as a native service on GCP, we now offer an extremely efficient way to manage, protect and recover data, VMs, apps and services for companies that rely on GCP. We are extremely excited about our latest innovation and this builds on the work our teams have been doing with Google Cloud for the past year and-a-half.”

According to a recent research note, “Data Protection Strategies for Google Cloud Platform with HYCU,” from industry analyst firm ESG, the adoption of Google Cloud Platform by many organizations as their primary cloud partner or as part of a multi-cloud strategy adds a new platform to protect to the enterprise backup equation. With 58% of organizations now reporting using public cloud in the form of infrastructure-as-a-service, a 28% increase since 2017.

“Cloud is not just here to stay, but it is becoming more and more meaningful for organizations as they move mission-critical workloads to the cloud,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior analyst, data protection, ESG. “In particular, as applications, data, and services are increasingly consumed on GCP, backing up and recovering data can be significantly simplified with the “cloud-native” purpose-built HYCU software solution.”

“HYCU has been one of our strategic and fast-growing data protection ecosystem partners over the past year,” said Bader Hamdan, Head of Technology Partnerships, Google Cloud. “It’s been impressive to see their momentum and continued innovation for GCP customers. With these new enhancements, GCP customers will have an attractive GCP native SaaS solution to address their backup and recovery needs.”

The latest enhancements to HYCU Backup as a Service for GCP include the following:

  • Optimized Cloud-native Incremental: With a new and enhanced way of addressing incremental backups and archives for GCP workloads, GCP customers now have one of the most cost-efficient data protection solutions available on the market today.
  • Enhanced Efficiency for Data Transfer and Storage: Aside of being a pure cloud service with no additional backup infrastructure costs for GCP customers, and having dynamic and elastic data mover allocation, HYCU does not require caching storage – resulting in optimal data transfer cost for backup workflows and more efficient use of cloud storage for dramatic cost savings.
  • Dynamic Scaling Optimized for Backup, Storage and Compute: As customers need to scale their infrastructure dynamically, they need their data protection software to accordingly scale as easily and efficiently. With enhancements to dynamic and scale out logic, this results in one of the fastest and the most cost-efficient data transfers for both small and large disks greater than 1TB+. HYCU’s advanced logic automatically adjusts the data transfer parameters (streams and computing resources) to the size of the protected disks. This is far more efficient than legacy solutions that are pre-allocated in-cloud backup infrastructure and leave a static configuration of the data transfer workloads.
  • Enterprise Applications for Mission Critical Workloads: Customers can leverage the same power for applications like SAP HANA protection for GCP.
  • Flexible Pricing Plans: Annual subscription plans – Customers can now change the Entitlement plan and use annual subscription with token-based pricing plan
  • Enhanced Reporting: With built-in backup reporting added, customers can now schedule reports based on generations versions.

For Nubosoft, a Google Cloud Premier Partner focused on the Mexican market and experienced in thousands of Google Cloud implementations, the latest enhancements to HYCU Backup as a Service for GCP could not come at a better time. “We’ve been a long-standing HYCU customer and the ability to handle incremental backups with HYCU’s latest innovation will be extremely useful,” said Santiago Jiménez Abad, CTO and Founder, Nubosoft. “We have always been impressed with HYCU’s efficiency, and we’re looking forward to deploying the latest innovations for our customers so they can continue to be protected the best way possible.”
