LONDON, UK – Feb. 27, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Databarracks has today announced the appointment of former Solicitors Regulation Authority Group Business Continuity Manager, Julie Goddard to its BCaaS team.

Julie Goddard MBCI, has over 15 years’ experience in Business Continuity and resilience spanning multiple industries. She began her career in IT Service Delivery in Food & Drink before expanding into Business Continuity. Julie held roles at Experian, Leicestershire County Council and most recently, was the Group Business Continuity Manager at the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

A well-known contributor to the industry, she served as a judge for the 2018 & 2019 CIR Business Continuity Awards and participated in the review of the BCI Best Practice Guidelines.

Julie commented: “I am very pleased to join Databarracks as a Business Continuity Consultant. It’s a fantastic team doing great work for its customers. After leaving the SRA I wanted to apply my skills and knowledge to help the businesses that need it most. Medium sized organisations are the ones who can struggle with Business Continuity. They are large enough that they have complex systems and processes, but they don’t have the scale to warrant full-time BC staff. I’m excited to make a difference for those customers, implementing practical solutions that work.”

Databarracks’ managing director Peter Groucutt commented: “Business Continuity as a Service is a rapidly growing service for us, and we’re thrilled to have Julie join us. Our aim with BCaaS is to take the processes and methods of mature, enterprises and deliver it as-a-service to medium sized organisations.

That needs two things. Firstly, the knowledge and experience of managing a Business Continuity Programme and handling incidents. Secondly, the ability to translate those methods and make them work for our customers.

Julie does exactly that. She has the best qualities we look for in a practitioner. She can take the, sometimes complex world of BC and make it easy to understand and engaging. The biggest problem we all face in continuity is maintaining attention in the face of a hundred other seemingly more urgent challenges. To really improve resilience, we have to embed BC within the organisations and make them care. That is what Julie is fantastic at.

“Resilience is a hot topic. From ransomware, Storms Ciara and Dennis to Coronavirus, organisations are looking at their plans to see, if they were impacted, could they keep serving their customers. It’s no-longer just a tick-box, compliance exercise, businesses must be prepared and ready.

“We knew Julie from her role at the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We work with a large number of the UK’s top 200 law firms so her expertise will be particularly valuable to those firms.”

San Mateo, CA – February 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — LucidLink, an innovator in cloud file services, announced today that Filespaces, cloud-native file service, won gold in the Cloud Storage category of TechTarget’s 2019 Products of the Year contest. Built specifically for cloud storage, Filespaces delivers secure, high-performance file access over distance to improve organizational workload efficiencies and maximize productivity. LucidLink’s SaaS offering led in the enterprise cloud storage category for its unique approach to speeding up remote data access to large and unstructured data sets across globally distributed cloud object stores. LucidLink Filespaces works on top of any object storage to deliver rapid, best-in-class encrypted access to files and data stored on infinitely scalable, cost-effective cloud storage.

https://searchstorage.techtarget.com/feature/Top-enterprise-cloud-storage-systems-win-2019-Products-of-the-Year

TechTarget chose the winners from a field of nearly 100 entries and selected top storage systems, products. The entries were judged on the following criteria: innovation, performance, ease of integration into an environment, ease of use and manageability, functionality, and value.

To be selected as the top of our category is truly an honor that we cherish,” said Peter Thompson, co-founder and CEO of LucidLink. “We’ve long believed that advancements in cloud infrastructure, together with bandwidth and networking improvements, allowed for a completely new approach to how enterprises can utilize the cloud. Providing direct read/write access to data stored in any cloud from anywhere and with a user experience that matches as if it is local, unlocks use cases and workflows previously not possible.”

Filespaces is ideal for distributed workflows, remote teams that collaborate across data sets, and companies that need to provide secure and remote access to dense data assets, such as video footage or computer-aided design files.

With LucidLink, customers deploy cloud storage outside the traditional use cases of long-term retention and native S3 cloud applications. LucidLink’s use cases range from direct back up to the cloud and immediate data recovery, to running production workloads on object storage and on-demand, concurrent access to video surveillance footage, to name a few.

LucidLink addresses the problem of distance and latency in cloud environments by reducing the traffic between applications and remote storage. By dramatically boosting responsiveness, file data is delivered efficiently and streamed on-demand, using any object storage provider, with the highest level of security.

Streaming Access to Data
Optimized to perform over distance like a local disk, LucidLink Filespaces streams files on demand, so organizations can leverage the cost benefits of cloud storage while retaining the performance of on-premises NAS without the high cost of deploying, maintaining, or managing hardware. Filespaces uses multiple parallel data streams, local write-back caching for frequently accessed data, in-line compression, and a proprietary adaptive algorithm to facilitate prefetching and reduce latency in cloud environments.

Leveraging Any Object Storage Provider & OS
LucidLink offers two storage options. For companies that do not already have an object storage provider, LucidLink provides storage as one complete service package through our partnership with Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage. Organizations can you any cloud storage provider, like Microsoft Azure Blob, AWS S3, or Google Cloud, to name a few.

Filespaces solves the business needs around storing large data sets on and off-premises and accessing them over distance. Because Filespaces turns the cloud into a hard-drive extension, there is no storage limit. Users get a near-local experience when accessing terabytes of remote data, and companies only pay for the capacity they need. Filespaces is simple to use, requires no additional infrastructure or unique configuration, and is compatible with any cloud (public, private, or hybrid), all major operating systems (Windows, Linux, macOS), and any file type.

Data Encrypted in Transit and at Rest
LucidLink has taken a unique approach to data security and encrypts all data to offer the highest degree of confidentiality. LucidLink employs a “Zero-Knowledge” encryption model using AES 256. LucidLink’s best-in-class security uses robust end-to-end, full-system encryption where all data is encrypted on the customer device and remains encrypted both in transit and at rest. Only the customer has of the encryption keys – neither LucidLink nor the storage provider can “see” the data. Customers benefit from time and cost savings, reduced to no data duplication, and tighter control over data storage, security, and device and sovereignty mandates.

About LucidLink
LucidLink offers an innovative cloud-native file service designed specifically for extensive data access over distance. LucidLink Filespaces™ provides best-in-class security and high-performance scalability to run file-based workloads on any object storage for maximum efficiency and productivity. The service is compatible with any object storage provider that utilizes cloud, on-prem, or hybrid storage, and it supports all major operating systems, including Linux, Windows, and macOS. LucidLink’s customer base is multiplying in the media and entertainment sector, among managed service providers, and across government agencies. Investors currently include Baseline Ventures, Bain Capital Ventures, S28 Capital, Fathom Capital, and Bright Cap Ventures. Founded in 2016 by former DataCore executives, LucidLink is privately held and headquartered in San Mateo, California, with offices in Bulgaria, Europe, and Australia.

• Awarded Silver for Best Cybersecurity Company – North America by 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards 

• Earned Silver winner for Best Insider Threat Solution in the 16th Annual Info Security PG’s 2020 Global Excellence Awards

Minneapolis, MN — Feb 27, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider risk detection, investigation and response, today announced that it has won four industry awards. The awards recognize companies and solutions for excellence and innovation in cyber and information security. Code42 and its data security solution were honored for the unique approach it delivers to help customers speed insider threat detection, investigation and response. Code42 secures data when employees share files using email and cloud-based collaborative technologies like Box, Microsoft Teams, Slack and OneDrive. The awards were given during the 2020 RSA Conference, where Code42 is exhibiting and hosting product demos in booth N-6079.

Code42 earned the following recognitions:

  • 8th Annual CyberDefense Magazine 2020 InfoSec Award for Best Insider Threat Detection. For this year’s CDM InfoSec Awards, judges looked for award winners that embody three major features: they understand tomorrow’s threats, today, provide cost-effective solutions and innovate in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach.
  • 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards: Gold award for Best Insider Threat Solution, and Silver award for Best Cybersecurity Company – North America. The winners of the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security and were selected based on the strength of their nomination as well as the popular vote by members of the information security community.

BEAST Elite & Elite F with QLC Flash Deliver Industry-Leading BEAST Reliability with Enhanced Performance

Thousand Oaks, CA – Feb. 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nexsan, a StorCentric company and a global leader in unified storage solutions, has announced significant enhancements for its high-density BEAST storage platform, including major improvements in performance and connectivity. The new BEAST Elite increases throughput and IOPs by 25% while maintaining the architecture’s price/performance leadership. Connectivity has been tripled, providing 12 high-speed Fibre Channel (FC) or iSCSI host ports, reducing the need for network switches.

BEAST Elite: Industry-Leading Reliability, Enhanced Performance and Scale
The BEAST Elite has been architected for the most diverse and demanding storage environments, including media and entertainment, surveillance, government, health care, financial and backup. It offers ultra-reliable, high performance storage that seamlessly fits into existing storage environments. In addition to a 25% increase in IOPs and throughput, BEAST Elite provides an all-in enterprise storage software feature set with encryption, snapshots, robust connectivity with FC and iSCSI, and support for asynchronous replication.

Designed for easy setup and streamlined management processes for administrators, BEAST Elite is highly reliable and was built to withstand demanding storage environments, including ships, subway stations and storage closets that have less than ideal temperatures and vibration. The platform now supports 14TB and 16TB HDDs with density of up to 2.88PB in a 12U system.

BEAST Elite F: QLC Flash Delivers Unrivalled Price/Performance Metrics
The BEAST Elite F storage solution supports QLC NAND technology designed to accelerate access to extremely large datasets at unrivalled price/performance metrics for high-capacity, performance-sensitive workloads. It is ideally suited to environments where performance is critical, but the cost of SSDs has historically been too high.

The BEAST Elite and Elite F both support the new E-Flex Architecture, which allows users to select up to two of any of the three expansion systems available. This gives organizations the flexibility to size the systems exactly as required within their rack space requirements.

“The new BEAST Elite storage platform with QLC flash provides a significant performance improvement over HDDs with industry-leading price/performance. This storage platform is ideal for customers who want extremely dense, highly resilient block storage data lakes, analytics and ML/AI workloads,” said Surya Varanasi, CTO of StorCentric, parent company of Nexsan.

Two thirds of government employees surveyed concerned about cyberattacks on their workplace, threats against elections among top concerns in 2020

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Feb. 27, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security today released the results of a new poll of U.S. city and state employees which examines their preparedness for dealing with cyberattacks. The study found that 73% of government employees surveyed are concerned about impending ransomware threats to cities across the country, and more employees fear of cyberattacks to their community than natural disasters and terrorist attacks.

More than 100 cities across the United States were hit with ransomware in 2019, according to research from Emsisoft. Data in the new Harris Poll, sponsored by IBM Security, found ransomware attacks might be even more widespread, with 1 in 6 respondents disclosing their department was impacted by a ransomware attack. Despite the growth of these attacks, half of the employees surveyed have not seen any change in preparedness from their employers, with only 38% receiving general ransomware prevention training. Also, budgets for managing cyberattacks have remained stagnant according to 52% of state and local government IT/Security professionals polled.

“The emerging ransomware epidemic in our cities highlights the need for cities to better prepare for cyberattacks just as frequently as they prepare for natural disasters,” said Wendi Whitmore, VP of Threat Intelligence, IBM Security. “The data in this new study suggests local and state employees recognize the threat but demonstrate over confidence in their ability to react to and manage it. Meanwhile, cities and states across the country remain a ripe target for cybercriminals.”

2020 Elections Concerns
With the impending 2020 election in the U.S, it’s no surprise election security is top of mind for government employees. In fact, the new IBM Harris Poll study found 63% of respondents are concerned that a cyberattack could disrupt the upcoming elections, with the majority of government employees placing their local Board of Elections among the top three most vulnerable systems in their communities.

While concerns of attacks against election systems and voting machines continue to make headlines, cyberattacks can also be used as a form of distraction or a way to weaken confidence in systems for voters, or even impede them from casting ballots. The Cybersecurity Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has warned that ransomware attacks, in particular, pose a heightened risk to the elections. According to the study, the fear of ransomware attacks feels real to the vast majority of responding government employees, with 73% expressing concerns about threats to U.S. cities.

Public Education
Public schools have emerged as a growing target for cybercriminals in 2019, ranking as the 7th most targeted industry according to IBM’s X-Force Threat Intelligence Index (moving up from 9th the year prior). Ransomware impacted school districts in New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Louisiana and other states last year.

The IBM Harris Poll study found that education respondents had the lowest amount of cybersecurity training compared to other surveyed state and local professionals. In general, 44% of those from the public education sector said they hadn’t received basic cybersecurity training, and 70% said they hadn’t received adequate training specifically on how to respond to a cyberattack. With low training numbers, the majority of education respondents aren’t overly confident in their ability to recognize and prevent a ransomware attack – confidence is nearly 20% lower than other state and local employees surveyed.

Calling on the Federal Government
With ransomware attacks against cities likely to continue in 2020, both U.S. government employees and taxpayers believe the federal government should step in to assist. The survey shows 78% of government employees believe the federal government should provide assistance to communities in responding to cyberattacks, echoing sentiments from IBM’s 2019 study where 50% of U.S. taxpayers said it’s the federal government’s responsibility to protect cities from ransomware. The majority (76%) of state and local employees also believe cyberattacks warrant emergency support, similar to those used for natural disasters.

Positive Progress and the Path Forward for Cities
While the study details where work needs to be done in preparing cities for cyberattacks, the results also showed some improvements made since last year. When asked whether they had seen any increases in preparedness and concern for cybersecurity in their departments, government employees surveyed claimed they had seen more improvements than not, and nearly 70% think their employers are currently taking the threat of cyberattacks seriously. City and state employees ranked ransomware #3 among the threats they were most familiar with – demonstrating that well publicized attacks are increasing awareness.

To expand on these improvements, IBM Security is encouraging U.S. cities to strengthen their preparedness through collaboration and threat sharing, creating and implementing incident response plans, and regularly testing their preparedness via threat simulations. IBM X-Force IRIS has been closely working with dozens of city experts and law enforcement agencies to encourage local governments across the U.S. to get a jump start on their cybersecurity preparedness and become better equipped to handle impending threats.

About the Survey & IBM Security Ransomware Research
This survey was conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of IBM among 690 employees who work for state or local government organizations in the United States. The survey was conducted January 16 through February 3, 2020 among adults 18+, employed full time or part time by local or state government.

Four groups were captured in this survey:
1. Local and state employees (working across all public sectors)
2. Local and state employees in IT & related activities
3. Local and state employees in public safety/emergency response
4. Local and state employees in public education

Each group was weighted to their respective population by education, age, gender, race, Hispanic ethnicity, US region, household income, full-time/part-time employment status and local/state level to population benchmarks from the March 2019 Current Population Survey (CPS), conducted by the US Census Bureau. For all groups, propensity score weighting was also used to adjust for respondents’ propensity to be online.

IBM Security offers one of the most advanced and integrated portfolios of enterprise security products and services. The portfolio, supported by world-renowned IBM X-Force® research, enables organizations to effectively manage risk and defend against emerging threats. IBM operates one of the world’s broadest security research, development and delivery organizations, monitors 70 billion security events per day in more than 130 countries, and has been granted more than 10,000 security patents worldwide.

Nuremberg, Germany – 24th February 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — In 2019, ownCloud was able to win 120 new customers worldwide for the Business Edition of the file-sharing open source platform of the same name. This represents an increase of one hundred percent compared to the previous year.

The company sees the rapidly growing awareness of data sovereignty and the increasing data protection requirements of the DSGVO and comparable regulations in other countries as the main drivers of this rapid growth. As a result, more and more companies and government agencies are abandoning the services of US public cloud providers and implementing secure private cloud solutions for file exchange instead.

“The subject of data sovereignty has finally entered our minds. This applies to both public administration and the free economy. More and more decision makers are recognizing the implications of the US Cloud Act and the immense risk it poses for their data,” comments Tobias Gerlinger, CEO of ownCloud. “That’s why they are moving to manage files with intellectual property, legally relevant documents or personal data in their own clouds and thus protect them from unauthorized access. We offer them the leading solution for this”.

Holger Dyroff, who as COO is responsible for product development at ownCloud, adds: “Our product strategy has worked out perfectly. New innovative features have enabled us to win many new customers for ownCloud Enterprise. Demand is particularly high for Microsoft Office online server integration for collaborative document editing, copy protection for highly confidential documents and file lifecycle management, which enables compliance with data storage regulations and thus avoids severe penalties.”

For 2020, ownCloud expects further dynamic growth. Two developments in particular are likely to lead to a further increase in demand: firstly, the efforts to establish digital sovereignty for Europe in the context of Gaia-X; and secondly, the global data privacy trend resulting from government regulation of data storage as well as data processing and the related restriction of public cloud use.

With its multiple award-winning software, ownCloud is the world’s leading provider of open source solutions for secure data exchange. While the free version of the software is in use on over 100 million devices worldwide and continues to enjoy great popularity with over 1,000 downloads per month, more and more companies and public authorities are opting for the subscription-based Enterprise Edition. In addition to professional support, it offers an extended range of features.

About ownCloud
The content collaboration platform ownCloud is used on over 100 million computers worldwide and is therefore the leading open source solution for the secure exchange of files. With ownCloud, organizations of all sizes and in all industries maximize their productivity every day with uncompromising security – today and in the future. Because ownCloud’s completely newly developed architecture, called “Infinite Scale”, is also equipped to meet the coming requirements of state-of-the-art IT architectures.

With severe weather season right around the corner, backup and disaster recovery is critical per the experts at Pennyrile Technologies

Hopkinsville, KY – February 26th, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Though Hopkinsville, Kentucky and the surrounding area is not technically in Tornado Alley, the region is certainly no stranger to severe weather. Straight-line winds, lightning strikes, flash flooding, and even significant flooding along the Ohio River can all wreak havoc on your data center. Pennyrile Technologies, headquartered in Hopkinsville and serving numerous small to medium businesses in the local area, has provided helpful advice for protecting your data in advance of the severe weather season.

Backup and disaster recovery may seem optional, but for your small business, files and data are critical. Without them, your company simply cannot operate, and every minute of downtime leads to lost revenue, not to mention its impact on your reputation as a company. Putting all your eggs in the same basket may seem as if its saves you money, but should something happen to your server – whether that something is hardware failure, cybercrime, or even a natural disaster like a serious flood or tornado – that’s the end of your data. Pennyrile Technologies works with many companies in the local area to ensure data redundancy through the wonders of the cloud.

Pennyrile Technologies has noted on its website that roughly 70% of all companies that lose their data in this manner go out of business relatively quickly afterwards. This is a jaw-dropping statistic and one that should drive all small businesses to develop and implement a plan for backup and disaster recovery. Regularly backing up your data to a secondary source protects it in the event that your onsite server crashes, gets hacked, or is otherwise destroyed. What’s more, when you choose to utilize the cloud, retrieving your last backup is incredibly simple. In fact, rather than going out of business, you can have your systems up and running again within hours.

Per the team at Pennyrile Technologies, every minute your website is offline is critical, so minimizing downtime is key. The team recommends backing up your data once every 15 minutes to an hour, then sending that data to the cloud for safekeeping. Should something happen, you will have a recent copy of your entire system – files, data, software, and more – that can save your business should the worst happen.

OAKVILLE, ON – February 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — CloudOak is pleased to announce its newly-established partnership with Taylor Business Group, the premier coaching and peer group company for IT solution providers.

Taylor Business Group’s (TBG) clients include top performing managed service providers (MSPs) – as well as IT companies that desire to achieve best-in-class breakthroughs in revenue growth, improve functional area efficiencies, and increase their profitability. TBG’s purpose with their clients is to share, apply, and execute best practices for building a sales engine and pipeline, growing an elite services business model, implementing a road map to peak profitability and performing at the highest levels of operational efficiency.

“We believe that businesses working together can grow more effectively. Our Business Improvement Groups (BIG) present an opportunity for its partners to establish proven financial benchmarks, implement tried-and-true processes, and exchange ideas that will aid accelerating their business growth”, states Michael France, Managing Partner for Taylor Business Group.

In line with this vision, CloudOak’s Plan4Continuity entered the playing field as a one-of-a-kind Business Continuity Planning and business process automation tool that can open up massive opportunities for IT service providers globally (including MSPs, CSPs, VARs and IT software and hardware providers) no matter the size of their client base in the SMB and SME space.

Jeff Collier, co-founder and CEO of CloudOak, highlights that “Because Plan4Continuity is a game changing solution new to IT Service Providers, it offers them a unique way to differentiate themselves from the competition while monetizing “Business Process Management and Automation” in the Cloud. We’ve seen an incredible response from the partner community and adding a prestigious brand like the “Taylor Business Group” is a great example of that. We are very proud to be partnered with them and the talented team of professionals they have there. We are really excited to see what they are going to be able to do with Plan4Continuity in their market.”

“Plan4Continuity has been developed to solve a global problem across all businesses and all verticals.”, says Troy Cheeseman, co-founder of CloudOak. “Today, many partners and clients have a BDR system in place for disaster recovery of servers and critical systems however, almost all clients do not have a full business continuity plan and very few MSPs offer a Business Continuity Planning service that can help coordinate and automate the business operations of the full continuity event. While BDR technology has made significant advancements for MSPs, the Business Continuity Planning and business operations ecosystem is still as it was 20+ years ago. Plan4Continuity allows you to create continuity plans in minutes and then turn any plan into a rapid notification system that tracks and records all continuity event actions and communications in real time. By offering our new industry first solution through partners, MSPs can create a completely new and untapped monthly recurring revenue stream.”, concludes Cheeseman.

As a CloudOak strategic peer group partner, Taylor Business Group will offer Plan4Continuity to all TBG partners which will give each member a competitive advantage. Plan4Continuity will be a unique differentiator for TBG members. “With their award-winning technology Plan4Continuity, combined with our coaches’ experience in revenue growth and managed IT, we believe that this strategic partnership will create a growing, profitable and seamless business process automation solution for our partner community”, concludes Dennis O’Connell, VP, Taylor Business Group.

Here are some of Plan4Continuity’s highlights:

  • Plan4Continuity is a unique cloud SaaS solution that creates cloud-based Disaster Recovery Plans and Business Continuity Plans as live applications in minutes.
  • Plan4Continuity offers 25+ continuity templates which includes plans like Active Shooter, Data Breach Response, Fire Evacuation, Flood, any Natural Disaster, Disaster Recovery, Cyber Security Audits, Ransomware Attack, and more.
  • Plan4Continuity offers an industry first solution as every plan includes “Broadcast”, “Call Tree” and “Roll Call” technology with asset detection to create servers and assets as part of any client’s Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan.
    • Broadcast - the ability to text mobile devices instantly of a continuity event or declare.
    • Roll Call - the ability to send a text to every mobile device instantly with options to indicate safety or if they are in need of help to track in real time.
    • Call Tree - the ability to send email and text to anyone instantly inside or outside the company to coordinate, automate and orchestrate the continuity event.

CloudOak’s state of the art solution provides peace of mind when a business is met with the most critical challenges like Data Breach, Ransomware Attack, Disaster Recovery or even something as drastic as an Active Shooter. Our solution provides clarity and precision when the panic and confusion of such tragic events strike. Our vision is to save one hour of downtime, one business or one life by taking the confusion of human error out of the equation.

iland improves visibility and control for MSPs and large IT organisations with multi-location backups from anywhere

London, UK – 26th February, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — iland, an industry-leading provider of secure application and data protection cloud services built on proven VMware technology, today announced new upgrades to its Secure Cloud Console that improve how managed service providers (MSPs) and multi-location enterprises manage their entire global portfolio of Veeam cloud-based backup solutions from a single, unified console.

The iland Secure Cloud Console is a fully-integrated unified management platform that provides full insight into iland’s cloud services including security and compliance configurations, performance, consumption and costs. The new features include a single pane of glass to view and support global cloud backup environments, including greater granularity to leverage real-time data and statistics over multiple accounts, and improve control over multiple tenants from a single space without extra work or permissions.

Additional self-service capabilities help simplify storage management, reallocate resources and add new tenants. Global enterprises and MSPs can also provide Backup as a Service (BaaS) internally and manage multiple repositories and locations from a single user interface. For example, administrators leveraging iland’s BaaS Insider Protection feature, an air-gapped repository that protects data against internal and external threats including ransomware, can now display the status of their multi-tenant environments in a single view. Administrators can also change Veeam Cloud Connect tenant names and update tenant passwords easily and from any location.

iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect is designed for Veeam users who need performance, security, and simplicity in their cloud solution for offsite backups and archives.

iland has a long history of innovation with Veeam in delivering seamless access and insights to customers to employ Veeam Cloud Connect in a way that best meets the needs of their business. The partnership has also led to multiple Impact Cloud & Service Provider Partner of the Year and Innovation Partner of the Year awards.

“We continue to listen to our customers and partners who want a smart and simple way to move and manage their data in the cloud,” said Dante Orsini, iland senior vice president of business development. “None of that is possible without visibility and control over as many resources as possible, which is why we’re enhancing the Secure Cloud Console with Veeam Cloud Connect. With these latest updates, we’re making it easy for channel and enterprise IT customers to extend backup services around the world with a simple, easy-to-use common interface.”

“iland’s Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect provides our customers with a great experience. Its inexpensive enterprise cloud backup can be delivered quickly and without complexity,” said Chris McDuffie, vice president of cloud architecture of Structured in Clackamas, Ore. “What I really appreciate about iland is its continued focus on innovation and improving the customer experience. The latest console update provides MSPs with a consolidated view into the platform, allowing engineers to stay focused on their workflow instead of switching between views. That drives significant value for both Structured and our customers.”

“Our ability to service our customers is based largely on understanding and accurately managing their cloud resources for lower costs and greater performance,” said Aaron Jeffery, national manager of managed services of Data#3 in Brisbane, Australia. “Adding Veeam backup to the iland Secure Cloud Console with iland’s disaster recovery services gives the context of how those elements fit together within their broader cloud environments for unmatched visibility and control.”

The latest updates to iland Secure Cloud Backup with Veeam Cloud Connect are available through all 10 of iland’s global cloud regions including an ongoing free 30-day trial with 5TBs of data.

Individuals, families and family history buffs now have a secure way to collect, curate, share, categorize and publish precious documents, photos and digital assets within a real-time, dynamic family archive

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – February 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — RootsTech—FileShadow, Inc. today announces the FileShadow Family Vault™—supporting family history buffs, genealogists, individuals and families in collecting, curating, storing and preserving precious family documents. The new service collects content in real-time, storing it in a dynamic family archive.

Connect multiple clouds and sources into one family vault
FileShadow collects all of your files into one cloud-based repository from sources such as iCloud, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business; local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops, Windows Virtual Desktops); and network and direct-attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices.

Collect and search all of your digital assets
All types of physical documents (“not born digital”) can be scanned and gathered into the FileShadow system such as family portraits, family reunion and wedding photos, journals, legal or official documents, contracts and government records. Once scanned and in PDF form, FileShadow’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) searches even these old documents as if they were “born digital.”

“FileShadow Family Vault brings together all of your digital and non-digital family and historical records,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “Users create their own vault that allows them to categorize, curate, protect and share different collections with anyone they choose. FileShadow is the best and easiest way to protect your most important documents in the Cloud.”

Categorize files through AI and machine learning
Once in the FileShadow vault, an AI and machine learning process analyzes the content to create metadata tags, including location (GPS), OCR of PDFs and machine learning (ML)-generated tags for images. For example, FileShadow will automatically identify terms in a document such as “marriage” and “certificate” for a marriage certificate, even if those terms are not in the file name but are in the document text, making it simple to search for and find Great Grandma and Grandpa’s marriage certificate. Users can also apply custom tags such as “marriage certificate” and “Great Grandma.” With automated and custom meta tags, users can create collections quickly and easily without endless hours of searching and viewing documents.

Share files with anyone, even those without FileShadow accounts
FileShadow allows users to publish collections of family files from their FileShadow Family Vault by generating shareable links. The FileShadow Publish feature is a simple and secure way for families to curate, store and share important photos from family reunions, birth certificates, naturalization papers, letters and more. With FileShadow, every family member can access important family memories and files, regardless of whether or not they are FileShadow users. These links can also be used as source links in popular genealogy programs and services, such as Ancestry and FamilySearch, among others.

For a free 30-day trial of FileShadow, visit www.fileshadow.com

About FileShadow
FileShadow is a service that aggregates files from multiple cloud sources, Windows Virtual Desktops, Windows PC and macOS desktops, Drobo and other network and direct-attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices into one secure, reliable and searchable cloud vault. Compatible with Amazon WorkSpaces, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, HVE ConneXions VDI Solutions, IOXO Workspace Technology, Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop and VMware Horizon, FileShadow for Windows Virtual Desktop delivers thin-provisioned access to the user’s vault.

Using machine learning, FileShadow provides superior indexing and searching capabilities. With FileShadow, users can quickly find any file with advanced search features such as file content, OCR of PDFs, GPS location and image searches. FileShadow is hosted on Google Cloud and IBM Cloud with storage on IBM Cloud Object Storage (COS) and Wasabi’s Hot Cloud Storage, providing “11 nines” of durability for optimal file protection. FileShadow supports multiple cloud storage sources, including Windows PC and macOS desktops (including iCloud Drive files and iCloud Photos), Drobo and other NAS/DAS devices, Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and OneDrive for Business.

  • Pinpoints suspicious data activity among high-risk employees, including flight risks, contractors, poor performers
  • Detects high-risk data events taking place outside of an employee’s typical hours
  • Prioritizes user behavior that needs investigation

Minneapolis, MN — February 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the leader in insider threat detection, investigation and response, today announced it has advanced its cloud data security solution with the second in a series of new capabilities designed to help companies defend against the rising tide of insider threats. The newest enhancements equip security teams to closely monitor, detect and investigate data threats caused by high-risk employees. This includes workers, who have access to high-value data; temporary employees, such as contractors and interns; as well as employees, who may be a flight risk, have had recent performance concerns or are known to fall for phishing attacks.

The new capabilities complement the company’s earlier product enhancements, which enable security teams to quickly spot data theft when employees resign and depart. Together, the series is intended to deliver on Code42′s broader product strategy: to secure data throughout the employee lifecycle — from hire to exit or separation. This includes milestone events such as promotions, performance reviews and disciplinary actions. The new product capabilities will be on display in Code42′s booth (N-6079) at the 2020 RSA Conference, which takes place Feb. 24 – 27 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

“There’s no debate. Insider threat programs have failed to keep pace with today’s digital workplace,” said Joe Payne, Code42′s president and CEO. “Collaborative technologies — like Slack, Box, and Microsoft Teams and OneDrive — have made it easy for employees to legitimately share files via personal email and the cloud. At the same time, they also have made it easier to exfiltrate data such as product ideas, source code and customer lists. Our cloud-based product was built to allow organizations to identify, investigate and respond to exfiltration events that stem from insiders.”

According to the 2020 Code42 Data Exposure Report, workers move files in and out of organizations using email (38%), external devices (35%), cloud collaboration platforms (31%) and browser uploads (26%). To provide security teams complete visibility to where data lives and moves, Code42′s insider threat solution quickly detects when files are:

  • Uploaded to personal email or other unsanctioned websites via web browsers
  • Uploaded to personal cloud sync applications, including iCloud, Box, Dropbox, Google and Microsoft OneDrive
  • Transferred to USB and other removable media devices
  • Shared to untrusted domains outside of corporate GoogleDrive, OneDrive or Box accounts
  • Deleted en masse off employee computers

With a high-fidelity signal, Code42′s solution helps security teams cut through the noise created by false alerts so they can pinpoint suspicious data activity among high-risk users and speed the investigation process. The latest product enhancements enable security teams to:

  • Access a prioritized list of users whose file activity requires investigation
  • Quickly determine the potential exfiltration vectors used across computers, cloud and email
  • Assess activities within the context of a user’s 1-, 7-, 30- and 90-day history
  • Review indicators of increased risk, such as which activities have taken place outside of an employee’s normal active hours
  • Review the exact content of files at risk
  • Escalate to line of business, HR and legal stakeholders when necessary

Code42′s solution has received a number of industry award recognitions. In 2019, Code42′s solution received Globee and IT World Awards, a Stevie Award, two Cyber Defense Magazine 2019 InfoSec Awards, a 2019 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Award and 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. For a complete list of Code42 achievements, visit the Honors page on the company’s website.

DRAPER, UT – February 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — StorageCraft®, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named StorageCraft as one of its 100 Coolest Cloud Companies of 2020. This annual list honors the premier cloud technology suppliers in each of five key categories: infrastructure, platforms and development, security, storage, and software.

The CRN editorial team selects the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for the list based on three criteria: 1) originality and innovation in product development; 2) quality of services and partner programs; and 3) success in helping their customers save money and maximize the impact of their cloud computing technology.

In addition to honoring outstanding technology suppliers, the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies list enables solution providers to identify the most advanced cloud technology players. The list aids those providers in selecting the companies that can best support their cloud service needs.

The challenge that solution providers face to manage and protect their clients’ data is immense. Organizations are amassing huge data pools that are increasingly distributed. At the same time, the threat of ransomware is intensifying—the FBI states that ransomware is a pandemic in the United States.[1]

StorageCraft’s cloud solutions protect data from ransomware attacks and other disasters regardless of where that data lives. These cloud solutions enable StorageCraft channel partners to back up and restore client data for uninterrupted business continuity. The StorageCraft product portfolio includes multiple cloud-based data-protection options.

StorageCraft Cloud Services™ enables channel partners to replicate ShadowXafe® backups of clients’ on-premises data to a secure data center. Via the StorageCraft Cloud™, partners can do anything from file recovery to instant failover of a client’s entire network, all with budget-friendly pricing and no hidden fees. Partners who use StorageCraft’s disaster recovery cloud offering have succeeded in recovering data after a ransomware attack every time.

Meanwhile, StorageCraft Cloud Backup fills a gap in data security by backing up files created in SaaS applications. Cloud Backup protects data created in Office 365 and G Suite from user and system errors, ransomware, and similar problems. This solution is a win-win for partners and their clients—more of the clients’ data is protected, and partners have another option for recurring-revenue growth that is easy to manage for them and inexpensive for clients.

Finally, OneXafe® Solo 300 provides cloud-based anytime, anywhere data backup, protection, and recovery for small business environments with zero upfront cost. Partners can stream a client’s data directly to the StorageCraft Cloud via this plug-and-play appliance. With its simple deployment process, partners can protect single tenant and multi-tenant environments within minutes.

New Hybrid File Software Release v3 Enables Organizations to Accelerate the Move to the Cloud with Unmatched Combination of Security, Simplicity and Scale Coupled with Real-Time Data Analytics

New P-368T High Density, All-NVMe Platform Extends Qumulo’s Leadership in NVMe File Storage

SEATTLE, WA – February 26, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Qumulo, the leader in enterprise-proven hybrid cloud file storage, today announced the release of Qumulo Hybrid File Software v3, ushering in the new decade with the security, scalability and simplicity of data insights necessary to make hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments a reality.

According to ESG’s 2020 research1, 90 percent of organizations agree that on-prem storage needs to be compatible with current and future public cloud goals. The v3 software release extends Qumulo’s leadership in hybrid cloud file storage with increased security, simple real-time analytics and management, integrated backup functionality, enhanced performance and massive scalability on-prem and in the cloud.

“Data insights are critical to innovation and business success,” said Ben Gitenstein, vice president of product, Qumulo. “The release of Qumulo’s Hybrid File Software v3 makes it simple to consolidate an entire organization’s unstructured data, gain visibility into the information, and move data to the applications that will leverage it, wherever it resides, on-prem or in the cloud.”

Qumulo Hybrid File Software v3 provides:

End-to-End Data Security & Integrated Data Protection
Encryption of a company’s data is a crucial concern and, in many instances, is required by government and industry regulations. Qumulo now provides encryption of data in-flight via SMBv3 and encryption at-rest on HPE’s Apollo appliances.

Audit capabilities log user and system activities for security and compliance requirements. Qumulo security logs leverage industry-standard open standards to simply integrate with leading monitoring tools such as Splunk.

Role-based access control (RBAC) policies allow administrators to manage who has access to and control of the system and the data. Using the API, policies can be programmatically copied to multiple clusters on-prem and in the cloud, making it simple to secure user access across hybrid environments.

Backing up multiple petabytes of data has historically been a prohibitively time-consuming and expensive process. Qumulo’s v3 software release has built-in data protection capabilities, available at no additional charge, that enable customers to avoid the costs and management complexity of a separate backup application. Qumulo’s integrated data protection leverages snapshot replication to backup data from the original cluster to a secondary location, either on-prem or in a choice of clouds.

Accelerated All-NVMe Application Performance & New All-NVMe Platform
Qumulo led the file storage market when it introduced the first all-NVMe scale-out file storage platform in 2017. With its v3 software release, Qumulo has further optimized its software to both deliver high performance for small file data sets. These performance optimizations are delivered within a single software release that runs natively in the cloud or on a wide range of commodity hardware, accelerating workloads both on-prem and in the cloud.

NVMe adoption is accelerating rapidly as performance-driven users and applications increasingly consolidate their workloads on Qumulo’s software. In response to the demand for increased capacity on NVMe, Qumulo is introducing the new P-368T platform. The P-368T is a dense, 2U platform that provides 368TB raw capacity per node and scales to more than 36 petabytes of all-NVMe storage in a single cluster.

Simple to Manage with Greatly Expanded Real-Time Analytics Information
Real-time visibility and integrated analytics have been a core advantage that Qumulo has provided to users since its initial launch in 2015. The v3 release delivers an enhanced user experience and additional capabilities, including snapshot capacity usage and latency by IP address, to ensure application performance is optimized.

Data sets have grown at breakneck speeds. To efficiently manage a large number of users and a wide variety of applications, and to provide the business with data insights, an organization’s infrastructure must be managed by software, not manual processes. Qumulo has expanded its API capabilities to automate all of the new v3 feature capabilities, maximizing system administrators’ time and efficiency.

Massive Scalability
Scalability limitations of legacy file systems have caused data sprawl and data storage efficiency challenges for years. These challenges have extended into limitations of cloud-native file systems and legacy file systems as they have tried to integrate with the cloud. Qumulo’s software was designed from the ground up to leverage 100 percent of the provisioned capacity, to store large and small files efficiently, and to run natively on cloud infrastructures. The v3 software release was tested on 100-node clusters to further demonstrate scale capabilities to over 36 petabytes in a single cluster.

“The adoption of hybrid cloud environments continues to accelerate and is driving demand for enhanced security and data protection, as well as simplified management and highly visible system metrics that provide actionable information,” said Scott Sinclair, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG). “Qumulo’s latest software capabilities, coupled with its expanded worldwide availability of Qumulo solutions, is enabling customers to manage workflows and data seamlessly across on-prem and cloud environments.”

Also announced separately today, Qumulo has massively expanded access to its hybrid cloud file software worldwide with the addition of new partnerships and distribution channels. Qumulo Hybrid File Software v3 is now available through Fujitsu, HPE GreenLake, Arrow Electronics and Global Distribution.

phoenixNAP Realizes 80 Percent Reduction in Latency, Accelerates Indexing by 3x vs. Popular Hyperscale Cloud Environments

CAMPBELL, CA – February 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Vizion.ai, the industry-leading open analytics and machine learning service, is delivering benefits to enterprise customers by optimizing the Vizion.ai solution for Intel architecture. Vizion.ai, built on 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and accelerated by Intel Optane technology, is a SaaS service that revolutionizes how customers search, analyze, and store massive volumes of data while significantly lowering costs. By applying Vizion.ai’s AI and Machine Learning capabilities to machine-generated analytics data, customers get game-changing insights such as their alerts for unusual activity and pointers to problems that put organizations at risk.

Through this strategic partnership, customers and Intel partners can be assured that Vizion.ai is enabled and optimized on Intel’s core and adjacent products and platforms and represents a solid commitment for long-term support. Panzura is also working with Intel and data service providers like phoenixNAP to accelerate sales by creating new opportunities for channel partners to differentiate and grow their businesses.

“Our vision with Vizion.ai is to bring the best open-source analytics and ML to the masses,” said Geoff Tudor, Vizion.ai Vice President and General Manager. “Companies want to better manage their infrastructure, view their customer’s journey across applications, and detect possible security breaches, all of which Vizion.ai delivers. We are honored to work jointly with Intel on delivering to our customer’s needs and look forward to sharing the benefits of our high-performance Log Analytics solution.”

Jeremy Rader, GM of Digital Transformation and Scale Solutions for Intel said, “As we continue to push past barriers to innovate and help customers solve their most difficult data challenges, we look to revolutionary companies like Vision.ai who offer next-generation technology platforms, based on an Intel platform foundation. We anticipate sharing the benefits of their expertise in open source analytics and Machine Learning service for enterprise data with our joint customers and partners.”

Vizion.ai keeps all data, including fast-growing machine-generated data, ultrawarm, searchable, easily accessible, and available at a lower cost versus other analytics services.

Built on an Intel backbone of 2nd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and accelerated by Intel Optane persistent memory, Vizion.ai provides superior scale for even higher-performance Log Analytics workloads while dramatically minimizing the cost economics.

Channel Enablement
An early adopter and channel partner benefitting from Vizion.ai’s higher performance and better economic model is phoenixNAP.

When phoenixNAP, a premier global IT services provider, was looking to bring Elasticsearch Service into its product portfolio, it turned to Vizion.ai to help their customers manage vast volumes of metadata to be searched and stored in object storage. “Organizations across the board are battling to manage the burgeoning amount of machine-generated data or metadata,” said William Bell, phoenixNAP’s EVP of Product. “Elasticsearch presents challenges in managing server clusters and usually requires data to be stored in flash storage, which becomes increasingly costly as data volumes increase. We used Vizion.ai to store the data in highly scalable object storage and Intel Optane DC persistent memory for caching. Delivering Elasticsearch as a Service powered by Vizion.ai, we have new opportunities to differentiate our data center services and help our partners grow.”

“We observed a reduction in latency by 80 percent and accelerated indexing by 3x compared to a popular hyperscale cloud environment. Our customers can now analyze the data they keep in our data centers without needing to validate the data sovereignty of a new provider. Also, Vizion.ai measures the performance of infrastructure using persistent memory and compares it to the speed of software running in a public cloud service,” adds Bell.

phoenixNAP customers leverage the Vizion.ai Analytics Service for Elasticsearch™ with Intel Optane persistent memory for use cases such as log management and analytics, system health monitoring, application performance monitoring, real-time incident response, security information and event management (SIEM), IoT and more.

New Enhancement to Industry-Leading STaaS Platform Takes Data Security to the Next Level

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Zadara Storage Inc., a trailblazing leader in enterprise storage-as-a-service, today announced increased security for object data stored in Zadara Storage. Zadara is a Technology Alliance Partner with Veeam® Software, the leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management™.

Data is the lifeblood of any organization. As it continues to grow by leaps and bounds, companies face the escalating challenge of securing data from a variety of internal and external threats. With this announcement, Zadara and Veeam extend their powerful partnership to satisfy a tremendous need in the marketplace for a more robust data storage solution that effortlessly safeguards customer data with the latest technology – Object Storage Immutability. Zadara is proud to be one of the first companies, in the highly competitive data storage space, to support Veeam’s new backup immutability feature of Veeam Backup & Replication v10 in an on-premises storage device.

The Future of Data Security Is Here
“Listening carefully to customer needs, we customized this forward-thinking feature to protect data from accidental or malicious destruction,” explained Oded Kellner, Zadara VP product management. “In extending our close partnership with Veeam with support for S3 Object Lock and immutable backups, we are leading the way to ensure that immutability becomes a standard feature in cloud storage. Now Veeam customers will be more resilient, and our leading-edge technology will help minimize the risk and complexity of managing and safeguarding enterprise data storage.”

Zadara Object Storage Immutability ensures backup integrity by stopping stored objects from being deleted or overwritten during a specific retention timeframe. With Object Storage Immutability enabled on a container, it is impossible to modify or shorten the retention period for an existing object. Immutability ensures object version integrity and availability throughout the retention period – no matter how long.

“As the leading innovator of Cloud Data Management solutions, Veeam makes it even easier for our customers to protect object storage with the new Veeam Availability Suite v10,” said Danny Allan, chief technology officer at Veeam. “Customers can enforce security and further protect their data against ransomware attacks via immutability, creating a unique capability for storage-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings like Zadara Storage that leverage the same proven Veeam solutions they already use today.”

Zadara is the first and only company to offer enterprise backup and recovery as a 100%-OpEx service. Zadara ensures that companies with large data centers can now dramatically simplify storage with the benefit of cloud technology and pay only for the storage they actually need, minimizing cost and supercharging ROI.

“Immutable backups, previously almost entirely applied to select use cases such as governance and compliance, have become increasingly critical for broader data protection needs – including continuity planning across human errors and comprehensive ransomware protection,” observed Deepak Mohan, research director, cloud infrastructure services at IDC. “Zadara’s ability to deliver pay-for-consumption immutable backup options for Veeam users, in both on-premises and cloud-adjacent locations, brings critically needed flexibility to enterprises and service providers looking to enhance their data protection practices against emerging risks in the environment.

Zadara’s support for Veeam Object Storage Immutability is available now for customer orders. All Zadara solutions feature 24/7/365 live support, proactive system management, periodic non-disruptive hardware upgrades, and a 100% uptime guarantee.

Data storage had the highest incident rate and the slowest detection time of all the data lifecycle stages

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Netwrix, a cybersecurity vendor that makes data security easy, today at RSA Conference announced the release of its 2020 Data Risk & Security Report. This study polled 1,045 respondents worldwide about how their organizations treat sensitive and regulated data during each stage of its lifecycle in order to identify common security gaps.

According to the report, data storage is the most challenging stage of the data lifecycle for ensuring data protection. While the majority of respondents (91%) said they were certain their sensitive data is stored safely, one in four organizations admitted they had actually discovered such data outside of designated secure locations in the past 12 months. Moreover, the data was left overexposed for days (43%) or weeks (23%) before the incident was discovered. These figures represent the highest incident rate and the slowest detection time of all the lifecycle stages.

Other notable findings of the report include:

  • 61% of organizations that are subject to the GDPR collect more customer data than the law permits.
  • 66% of CIOs don’t have cybersecurity and risk KPIs that are regularly reported to their executives.
  • 54% of organizations said that they do not follow the security best practice of reviewing user access rights to data on a regular basis.
  • 30% of system administrators granted direct access to sensitive and regulated data based only on a user request in the past 12 months.
  • Organizations that classify data at the creation stage spend just an average of 3 hours on each data subject access request (DSAR) — 11 times faster than those who don’t classify their data. In addition, their cost for managing DSARs increased by 24% or less, while those who don’t classify data reported increases of 50%–74%.

“Even as cybersecurity budgets grow, data breaches continue to increase in both number and size. Cybersecurity leaders need to find more effective ways to manage data security risks and show return on investment to the executive team. Gaining more visibility into data, internal processes and user activity will enable them to prioritize their efforts, mitigate security and compliance risks more efficiently, and prove the effectiveness of their investments,” said Steve Dickson, CEO, Netwrix.

“Unstructured data often accounts for nearly 80% of the data footprint of an organization. The true extent and size of unstructured data are often unknown due to compression, deduplication and the number of copies of data within the organization. Beyond the substantial proportion of dark data prevalent in the average organization, within the unstructured dataset is often found more than 10 copies of the same files just through data protection, backup and recovery, business continuity, testing, and other automated activities.” — Gartner, “Market Guide for File Analysis Software,” by Julian Tirsu, Marc-Antoine Meunier, February 2020.

Or stop by the Netwrix booth (#1641) on the RSA Conference show floor on February 24–28, 2020.

About Netwrix
Netwrix makes data security easy, thereby simplifying how IT professionals control sensitive, regulated and business-critical data, regardless of where it resides.

Nasuni achieves 23 quarters of consecutive growth fueled by rising enterprise cloud adoption, frustration with legacy file storage infrastructure

BOSTON, MA – February 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nasuni®, a leading provider of cloud file services, today announced record results for its fiscal year ended December 31, 2019. Annual recurring revenue increased 44% year-over-year from 2018, marking the 23rd consecutive quarter of growth, driven by rising enterprise cloud adoption and frustration with legacy file storage infrastructure. Nasuni now supports approximately 500 enterprise customers, protecting and providing global access to more than 79 petabytes of data across billions of files in 8,000 locations across 70 countries. This latest milestone is a testament to the growing demand for a new approach, free of legacy hardware, to deliver file services across global locations.

As enterprises look to modernize data centers, the cloud is seen as a way to quickly drive innovation. According to Gartner, Inc.(1), 80 percent of enterprises will migrate entirely away and close their on-premises data centers by 2025 and 99% of all files will be stored in cloud environments. Employees will create, collaborate on and store files from any device, without knowing if the files are stored locally or in the cloud. To support this rapid growth, Nasuni has grown its headcount by 60 percent since January 2018, and, last year, opened and expanded office space in Marlborough, Massachusetts. This office complements the engineering and customer support teams at the company’s Boston headquarters and a new office in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park.

The company also added new members to its board of directors in 2019, with Joel Reich, former executive vice president of products at NetApp, and Peter McKay, CEO of Snyk and former co-CEO of Veeam. Reich and McKay’s extensive experience and domain expertise in storage and cloud computing will support the company’s strategic vision as the company continues to achieve record growth through increased demand for its cloud-native, file services platform.

Additional highlights of Nasuni’s achievements in 2019 include:

  • New capabilities: Nasuni launched significant enhancements to its flagship file services platform for modernizing enterprise storage infrastructure. This new version gives enterprises access to artificial intelligence (AI) and search analytics for unstructured data, as well as powerful cloud migration capabilities. Companies gain a springboard for agile, intelligent migrations and cloud-first approaches, as well as multi-cloud flexibility with new support for Google Cloud.
  • New patents: The team was awarded three U.S. patents; the company now has over a dozen patents covering its industry-leading platform and enabling technologies, as well as numerous patents pending.
  • Nasuni covers the cloud leaders: Nasuni made tremendous progress in delivering its software via major cloud partners. In FY 2019, approximately 75% of Nasuni’s deployments were in conjunction with customers using AWS and Microsoft Azure for cloud storage. Nasuni continued its focus on channel partners by increasing channel workforce by 35% to support over 80% the company’s revenue fulfilled through the channel.
  • New funding: Nasuni raised $25 million in new funding in early 2019. Led by Telstra Ventures, the round also included participation from existing investors Goldman Sachs, Sigma Prime Ventures, North Bridge Venture Partners, and Flybridge Capital Partners.
  • Enhanced customer experience: A new consumption pricing model was introduced delivering a flexible subscription-based model. Expansion rates of existing customers exceeded 115% in 2019 for the fifth consecutive year and gross customer annual recurring revenue (ARR) churn was less than 5% both key indicators of customer success.
  • Customers with ARR greater than $100,000: Grew by 42% in 2019.
  • Executive team expansion: In addition to expanding its engineering team, Nasuni made strategic hires to its executive team, including David Grant, chief marketing officer; Will Hornkohl, vice president, alliances; and Krischel Crawley, vice president, sales – west.
  • Awards: The company was ranked among the fastest growing companies in North America in Deloitte’s 2019 Technology Fast 500™, and was the only file services vendor included on the list. Cheryle Cushion, vice president, marketing was named to CRN’s Women of the Channel list.

The global volume of file data continues to explode and is extremely difficult to manage with legacy file infrastructure silos. Nasuni enables enterprises to modernize their file storage infrastructure with a cloud-based approach, seamlessly navigating their entire journey from NAS silo consolidation through protection against ransomware and other cyber threats, enabling global file sharing and increasing workforce productivity. The Nasuni platform is trusted by many of the largest organizations including Meredith Corporation, Western Digital, and AECOM to empower users to share and collaborate on files across multiple sites and geographies with maximum performance and reliability.

Meredith Corporation cut CapEx costs significantly, eliminating traditional backup and reducing its on-premises NAS infrastructure by 80% with Nasuni and AWS. The No. 1 magazine operator in the U.S. and owner of brands such as PEOPLE, Better Homes & Gardens, InStyle, REAL SIMPLE and Parents, moved to Nasuni to deliver a file services platform on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Dave Coffman, Meredith’s director of enterprise infrastructure, said, “We tried all different types of technology approaches, but we could never catch our white whale, a global file system. We used to robocopy from a file server in Iowa to New York, but that was slow and difficult. Now we robocopy to Nasuni and let the magic happen. It’s faster and much more reliable, so there’s a lot less stress before the deadline.”

“Files are the fastest growing segment of enterprise data, and enterprises are simply unable to protect and provide fast global access to them using legacy technologies,” said Paul Flanagan, president and CEO of Nasuni. “We had strong new customer bookings growth at 63%, which will lead to accelerated growth revenue growth rates in 2020. At Nasuni, we’ve built a file services platform for the cloud that is not only modernizing primary and secondary storage, but we also cut the total cost of ownership in half compared to traditional file infrastructure. This ability to solve an immense data challenge while saving our customers a substantial amount of money is, not surprisingly, driving our rapid growth.”

Intel partners with Datto for remote monitoring and management (RMM) integration for MSPs

NORWALK, Conn. – Feb. 25, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datto, Inc., the leading global provider of cloud-based software and technology solutions delivered through managed service providers (MSPs), today announced a collaboration with Intel for Datto RMM, its remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform. Datto and Intel customers will now have direct capability from Datto RMM to remotely and more securely control devices “out-of-band,” meaning the hardware is either powered off or the operating system is unresponsive. This introduces a level of access to support endpoints that MSPs would otherwise struggle to achieve using traditional remote control tools.

The combination of Datto RMM and Intel® Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel® EMA), as part of the Intel vPro® platform, provides MSPs with remote, more secure and uninterrupted, hardware-level access to end-point devices, even when the operating system is not functioning properly. With a unique, device-specific URL generated through Datto RMM, MSPs can remotely power, more securely manage and control the device, enabling comprehensive remote support and software and patch updates.

“The new integration between Datto RMM and the Intel Endpoint Management Assistant has proven to vastly improve our techs capacity to deliver out-of-band support to Intel vPro devices,” said Joseph Wright, Senior, CEO at Central PA Technologies. “Rather than sending someone on-site for an unresponsive device or low-level hard drive encryption, our techs are able to continue providing remote support using Datto RMM and Intel EMA. It’s a huge win for us because it now allows us to improve the responsiveness to our customers and reduce the time to solve the problem.”

“Up until now, MSPs have been unable to access devices that are offline or turned off. It is, however, critical for MSPs to have full, remote access to the devices they are responsible for maintaining. This means remote management capabilities anywhere at any time,” said Ian van Reenen, vice president, Software Engineering, RMM at Datto. “At Datto, we are continuously advancing our technology to empower our MSP partners with the innovative products required to drive their business forward. This integration with Intel enables our MSP partners to extend their capabilities and better serve their customers.”

This is the second collaboration between Datto and Intel. In June 2019, Datto announced SIRIS 4, the next generation of Datto’s flagship business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) appliance, which utilizes several advanced, high-performance Intel processors.

“Datto understands that managed service providers need first class hardware that is built for business, leading with Intel vPro® platforms,” said Carla Rodriguez, senior director, Ecosystem Partner Enabling of Business Client Platforms at Intel. “This partnership with Datto brings together the right technologies on this RMM integration to deliver remote management capabilities to many of its customers. We look forward to continued collaborations with Datto.”

The integration is now available to Intel and Datto RMM users. For more information about the partnership, visit https://www.datto.com/integrations/intel and check out the joint webinar on March 4 here — https://www.datto.com/events/webinar-introducing-intel-endpoint-management-assistant-integration-to-datto-rmm

Comprehensive Managed Cloud Solution Powered by Veeam Announced by ITsavvy

ADDISON, ILL – Feb. 24, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — ITsavvy, one of the fastest growing complete cloud solution providers in the U.S., is now a Silver Veeam Cloud and Service Provider (VCSP) partner. Veeam is the leader in backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management. ITsavvy’s cloud infrastructure, combined with the backup and replication of Veeam Cloud Connect, provides a fully integrated, fast and secure cloud-based data protection solution.

This means clients can easily point their Veeam backup and replication jobs, including Microsoft Office 365, to ITsavvy’s cloud infrastructure where the data is securely and safely backed up and saved.

Most organizations outsource the responsibility of performing and monitoring backups for efficiency and effectiveness. There are many reasons for this, including lack of internal resources. ITsavvy’s managed cloud solution savvyCloud solves all of this.

The savvyCloud solution offers infrastructure and computing capabilities that are hosted in the cloud at one of the many strategically located ITsavvy data centers across the U.S.

ITsavvy Executive Vice President, Advanced Solutions Group (ASG), Joe Llano, said: “We have been able to leverage Veeam Cloud Connect to offer a turnkey, secure cloud solution to our clients. This means the client doesn’t have to build a cloud infrastructure–or rely on a public cloud and the risk that goes along with it.”

Veeam Cloud Connect is the portfolio of Veeam Cloud solutions for enterprises offered through ITsavvy. Benefits include:

  • Centralizes data protection for distributed data centers, ROBO (remote office/branch office) and mobile users
  • Securely delivers offsite backup and replication services to internal customers
  • Eliminates complexities with no need for VPN connection
  • Instantly provisions cloud repositories in Microsoft Azure

Veeam Cloud Connect creates the ability to send Veeam backups and replicas from multiple locations to ITsavvy’s network of data centers. It enables a single IT function to centrally manage backup and replication services for distributed enterprises, ROBO environments and mobile users.

Many organizations are adopting the Microsoft Office 365 platform and while Microsoft provides management and uptime for the cloud-based services, it is the individual company’s responsibility to protect their data. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 eliminates the risk of losing access to business-critical data and ensures the organization remains in control. Veeam’s solution delivers secure backup for Office 365 Exchange Online, SharePoint Online OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams, enabling quick recovery of individual items and efficient eDiscovery of backup data for Office 365 or hybrid environments.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 securely backs up Office 365 to ITsavvy’s data centers.

ITsavvy’s President and CEO, Mike Theriault, said: “Veeam is a key partner for us. Its products mesh perfectly with the leading-edge cloud services we have been providing for more than a decade.”

Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research (CIER) mitigates data leakage risks with off-site backup and enhances data protection with instant verification, all with the help of NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – February 24, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that Chung-Hua Institution for Economic Research has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

CIER conducts research on behalf of governments and businesses, collecting and sharing information and data for advocacy and to inform various stakeholders. Given that it handles such massive amounts of data, it was vital that CIER had a data protection solution it could count on to ensure both the safety and security of the institution’s data.

For years, the institution had resorted to tape backup to protect the collected data. CIER performed full data backups daily and the backup tapes were transported to a secondary site for storage to meet regulatory requirements on off-site data protection. This data protection approach was affordable, given CIER’s limited budget and ensured that the institution had copies of its data off-site.

However, with this backup frequency and the logistics involved, tape backup proved extremely time consuming and risky. Daily tape transportation from production environment to off-site storage was exposed to theft or loss of tapes, meaning that data security and safety alike were compromised. In addition, when using tape backup, there was no way of verifying backup data accuracy and recoverability, without data quality testing.

“Backing up data to tape is actually kind of complicated. There were incompatibility issues between new and old tape specifications, and recovery time was long. Moreover, we could not completely avoid the risk of confidential data being leaked, as we needed to commission tape disks for regular delivery to designated sites for storage,” says Lo Yu-Fan, IT Administrator at the data processing office at CIER.

In 2018, CIER decided to reevaluate its data protection strategy by considering a more flexible and reliable backup solution. Having installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication in its environment for testing and evaluation, CIER was able to establish that the solution met all requirements at a reasonable installation cost.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers data protection for physical, virtual, and cloud environments, and is compatible with numerous network-attached storage (NAS) devices. The software backs up and recovers VMware, Hyper-V and Nutanix AHV VMs, and Windows Server physical machines. In addition, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers backup and recovery of Microsoft Office 365, Linux Server backup, and Windows Workstation backup. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is currently used to protect CIER’s 20 virtual hosts and for off-site backup between Taipei and Kaohsiung.

In addition, CIER already had a NAS device on premises and NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s compatibility with various NAS devices only bolstered the case for choosing NAKIVO.

“Overall, expenses for extra hardware and resources could be astonishing. Integration with NAS devices is a huge advantage, as we would not want a solution to occupy a ton of storage space and interfere with usable space for other critical applications. A high-performance backup appliance that combines hardware and software, dramatically increases backup speed and provides improved reliability for our backups,” explains Cai-Min Tseng, Director of the data processing office at CIER.

“When we were doing backup to tape, we could not check the accuracy of backed-up data, as well as recovery time was long. That is why every day we had no choice but to perform full backups, so as to reduce the chances of backup corruptions due to the issues with tape itself,” says Cai-Min Tseng. “Now, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we have amazing functionality, such as instant verification, to set up automated instant verifications for our backups that are completed in a matter of minutes. Thus, we can verify that our backups are in fact recoverable.”

In 2017, CIER set up another division in Kaohsiung. As a result, the data processing office was able to work out an off-site backup strategy. After the introduction of NAKIVO Backup & Replication, the Kaohsiung office can now store copies of backups to ensure recovery after any disaster. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication’s backup copy functionality, backups can be copied offsite, specifically to a secondary backup repository that has a connection to the internet.

“All we needed to do was to purchase the same NAS device for the Kaohsiung office and enjoy the advantages of off-site backup. Not only can we copy backups now, we can also copy the recovery points that we need. By having more than one copy of our backups, we can avoid the risk of data being stolen by someone during the transportation of tape cartridges,” says Cai-Min Tseng.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication boosts CIER’s data protection by offering faster backup and instant verification of backups. CIER has also put in place an off-site backup strategy, using the backup copy functionality. This new approach also minimizes data leakage risks.

Currently, the data processing office is testing backup of physical servers, in order to use NAKIVO Backup & Replication to back up those as well. With Windows Server backup, CIER will have a more complete data protection strategy and strengthen the capability to protect its data, in the event of malicious attacks or natural disasters.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication helped us to set up a comprehensive data protection strategy, so that we could protect our data against ever-evolving malicious attacks,” says Cai-Min Tseng. “The solution provides us with amazing functionality, speedy recovery, off-site backup and ease-of-use. The whole data protection strategy got enhanced and overall benefits are far more rewarding than the ones from other vendors.”

Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF allows MSPs to help customers prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks as well as prepare for the latest regulatory requirements – from CCPA to NY SHIELD Act and more

NEW YORK and MIAMI – February 24, 2020 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaseya®, the leading provider of complete IT infrastructure management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and internal IT organizations, today unveiled the industry’s first comprehensive audit, assessment and analysis solution that allows users to automate compliance processes and documentation according to the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cyber Security Framework (CSF). This first-to-market capability within Kaseya Compliance Manager allows MSPs to better support small and mid-sized clients facing a growing number of cybersecurity threats by leveraging the best practices outlined in the NIST CSF.

Kaseya Compliance Manager empowers users to create automated, actionable task lists and corresponding reports according to various compliance standards, such as GDPR, HIPAA, and now, NIST CSF. NIST CSF provides a policy framework of computer security guidance for how private sector organizations can assess and improve their ability to prevent, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks. After its initial audit, Kaseya Compliance Manager rescans every month to create change summary reports and treatment plans. Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF is the first and only comprehensive audit, assessment and analysis process automation tool that allows any user, regardless of their compliance expertise, to identify gaps within their cybersecurity policies and take action to remedy areas of concern.

“There is an incredible opportunity for MSPs to guide their customers through the growing data privacy and security regulatory space, and provide a much needed service that will also help grow their business,” said Mike Puglia, chief strategy officer at Kaseya. “We see compliance as the next big managed service, and Kaseya Compliance Manager is built so that every MSP can capitalize on this market opportunity without the need for specialized expertise. With Compliance Manager for NIST CSF, MSPs can now leverage a proven cybersecurity framework on behalf of their customers to safeguard them against mounting cybersecurity threats as well as put them on the road to success for adhering to new state data security regulations such as CCPA and NY SHIELD. This product release is the latest of many new offerings in the Kaseya IT Complete platform that are purpose-built to give MSPs and IT teams the most comprehensive suite of IT infrastructure management solutions available on the market today.”

NIST CSF serves as the foundation for many data privacy regulations, including the Consumer Online Privacy Rights Act (COPRA), a bill introduced in the U.S. House last December, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), enacted in Jan. 2020, and the NY SHIELD Act, arguably the most comprehensive state data privacy regulation to date effective Mar. 2020.

According to Kaseya’s 2019 MSP Benchmark Survey, 83 percent of MSPs are impacted by their end-customers’ compliance requirements and 50 percent assist end-customers in their compliance efforts on an ad-hoc basis. Yet, MSPs historically have shied away from offering Compliance-as-a-Service (CaaS) to clients due to a gap in the particular expertise needed in this space. In fact, less than 10 percent of MSPs currently offer CaaS solutions. Kaseya Compliance Manager solves this issue and empowers MSPs to capture this rapidly growing market while leveraging their existing staff.

“Kaseya Compliance Manager and its many capabilities empower MSPs to ensure their small and medium-sized business customers are fully compliant with the growing list of regulatory standards worldwide, from start to finish,” said Max Pruger, general manager of compliance at Kaseya. “With Compliance Manager for NIST CSF, Kaseya is proud to have made it possible for MSPs and their customers to prepare for almost any future data privacy regulation and audit, while also enhancing the security of their IT environments accordingly.”

Key features in Kaseya Compliance Manager for NIST CSF include:

  • The NIST Auditor Checklist that gives users a high-level overview of how well their organization complies with NIST CSF to quickly identify potential issues that may affect their level of compliance.
  • A white-label NIST Risk Analysis that identifies existing gaps in an organization’s protection and compliance, and produces a list of issues users must remediate to ensure compliance.
  • A NIST Risk Treatment Plan (based on the findings in the NIST Compliance Assessment) with tasks to minimize, avoid or respond to risks. Users also receive a risk scoring matrix that can be used to prioritize risks, and appropriately allocate money and resources to ensure that identified issues are resolved.
  • Evidence of NIST Compliance, which compiles compliance information from automated scans, augmented data, and questionnaires into one document to back up the NIST Auditor Checklist with real data.

Compliance Manager for NIST CSF represents Kaseya’s ongoing dedication to providing best-in-class compliance services for MSPs and multi-function IT teams, and marks the continued expansion of the Kaseya compliance business unit, which the company dedicated $10 million of investment last fall.

Cloud Backup Expert Tips: Trust in Your Salesforce Data Recovery Plan

Salesforce is the most secure and available platform in the industry. Yet data protection remains a shared responsibility as it does with all modern SaaS platforms. Customers are responsible for preventing user-inflicted data and metadata loss and corruption and for having a plan in place to recover if it happens. That’s why Salesforce recommends using a “partner backup solution that can be found on the AppExchange.

Despite this recommendation from Salesforce, our 2020 State of Salesforce Data Protection survey found that 88% of companies are lacking a comprehensive backup and recovery solution. Furthermore, 69% say their company may be at significant risk of user-inflicted data loss.

Salesforce Data Recovery Service Is Being Retired

Salesforce recently announced that they will be retiring their last-resort data recovery service, effective July 31, 2020 because it has not met their high standards of customer success and trust. For customers who aren’t proactively backing up their data, Salesforce currently offers this last resort Data Recovery service. However, at a cost of over $10,000 and a 6-8 week recovery time this service is not an adequate option for many customers. The upcoming retiring of this last resort Data Recovery service is an excellent opportunity to remember that a proactive backup and recovery has always been a required and recommended best practice. Salesforce offers a number of native backup options to minimize your business risk of user-inflicted data loss. Let’s explore these native options.

Native Salesforce Options

Weekly Export and Report Exports

Users with “Data Export” profile permissions can generate backup .CSV files of their data on a weekly basis (once every 6 days) or on-demand via user-generated reports. The export can be scheduled and then manually downloaded when ready. Weekly Export backups can include images, documents, attachments, and Chatter files. In the event of a user-inflicted data loss, users must manually restore by uploading their .CSV files in the correct order. Because this process can be challenging OwnBackup has created a free eBook with a step by step process to Recovering Lost Data Using Salesforce Weekly Export.

Data Loader

Data Loader is a client application for the bulk import or export of data. It can be used through the user interface to bulk import or export Salesforce records through .CSV files, as well as Insert, Update, Upsert, Delete, or Export Salesforce records as .CSV files. Data Loader command line can also be used to backup data to or from a relational database, such as Oracle or SQL Server. Restoration of lost or corrupted data would be manual.

These native methods include data, but no metadata. In order to proactively protect your Salesforce platform, you should back up metadata and attachments as well. Without this vital piece, putting the relationships between your Salesforce data objects back in place can become a painstaking process.

Without the ability to maintain relationships, you’ll only have partial restore capabilities. If an account is accidentally deleted, all of the contacts, cases, tasks, and other records will be deleted as well. If you only restore the account, but not it’s dependent child records, your recovery capabilities are only providing you partial coverage.

Having a copy of your data is important to meet the minimum standards of a backup. The real challenge is the ability to restore data back into Salesforce. Plan for regular data recovery testing to ensure that you are prepared for any unexpected data events. You must test your strategy so you’ll be aware of what will actually happen if you were to experience a data loss or corruption. When you test, you may find that you are unable to recover in the time or to the fullness that you require. When testing, check:

  • Are you able to recover specific versions of document or data or metadata?
  • Are you able to minimize data transformation during the restoration process?
  • How does your strategy handle different types of restore processes?
  • What is the performance and time to restore?

How to Trust in Your Salesforce Data Recovery Plan

At the beginning of this article we mentioned Salesforce recommends using a partner backup solution that can be found on the Appexchange. The reason they recommend this is almost entirely due to the challenges most experience when attempting to recover lost or corrupted data and the fact that metadata cannot currently be backed up using native backup methods.

OwnBackup, a top-rated partner on the AppExchange, is here to help you identify the five concepts that really matter when it comes to a comprehensive backup AND recovery.

1. Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO)

For many companies, having unresolved data loss or corruption for over one week could equate to millions of dollars in lost revenue. As you construct your data recovery strategy, you will need to define your recovery point objective (RPO) and recovery time objective (RTO).

The RPO is the amount of data a company can afford to lose before it begins to impact business operations. Therefore, the RPO is an indicator of how often a company should back up their data.

The RTO is the timeframe by which both applications and systems must be restored after data loss or corruption has occurred. The goal here is for companies to be able to calculate how fast they need to recover, by preparing in advance.

What the recovery time and recovery point end up being are deeply influenced by backup frequency, backup retention, your ability to compare current and past data, and to restore just the data that has been impacted. RTO and RPO are two parameters that help minimize the risks associated with user-inflicted data loss

2. Data Integrity

Data integrity means that you should have a complete backup of your Salesforce environment. Backing up a few critical fields or records isn’t enough. Salesforce is a relational database that doesn’t allow admins to manipulate or populate the record IDs. All of the relationships in Salesforce environments are based on these record IDs. In the case of a data loss, a cascade delete effect will remove all of the child records associated with that account.

This is one of the big reasons why an audit trail is not a backup and recovery solution. You never know what the scope of a data loss will be in the future. For that reason relying on field level changes on a subset of objects as a reliable backup solution is a fundamentally flawed strategy.

Therefore, best practice is to have a full backup of all of your Salesforce data, metadata, and attachments. You may also want to have a partial, high-frequency backup for critical objects that change more than a few times each day.

Another best practice for maintaining data integrity includes having restore capabilities that allow both full and granular restore to prevent an accidental overwrite of legitimate changes.

Finally, the integrity of your backups themselves are critical, particularly for companies with internal data security policies or regulatory compliance concerns.

3. Security

Your company is likely required to follow security requirements. Your backup and recovery process shouldn’t be excluded from these security requirements. Saving .CSV files of your Salesforce data within the company hard drive or your laptop should not be considered a best practice. Ideally, your backup data should be saved to trusted cloud storage. To meet compliance requirements the data should also be encrypted both in transit and at rest.

You should also consider the permission settings and accessibility of your backups. With your current backup process, could an inappropriate user access and delete data.

4. Reliability

A reliable backup and recovery plan includes automated change identification, scheduled backups, proactive data change monitoring, and the ability to reach out for technical support if needed.

You should have the ability to automatically identify changes that have occurred in your schema. A tool that can identify what has changed between backups is important for data, metadata, and attachments.

Your backups should run daily at a minimum. Schedule your backups to run on a set schedule which is easy to define and monitor.

With so many end-users with read-write and delete permissions or merge abilities, proactive monitoring is crucial. A reliable data backup and recovery plan allows you to quickly find out when unusual changes have occured or if a backup has failed.

5. Accessibility

Storing data backups outside of Salesforce is a best practice for accessibility. If Salesforce were to become temporarily unavailable, you would still have access to your data and metadata.

Data backup portability is a must for an optimal data backup and recovery plan. Data movement should be able to take place securely and conveniently. Whether you’re looking to conduct more complex reporting on large data sets with BI and ETL tools or want to maintain legacy business continuity and data recovery procedures, your data should be yours to use as you please.

Data accessibility is also a key requirement of GDPR and CCPA. In support of these regulations, you should have full transparency into their data, even backups. To comply with these regulations, you’ll need to be able to search for where a Data Subject’s data, including attachments, resides within their backups.  Additionally, you must have the ability to rectify or forget an individual’s data in your backups for full compliance.

Protect your data with Comprehensive Backup and Recovery

By making the tough decision to retire their Data Recovery service, Salesforce has reiterated their commitment to customer success and trust. Now is the perfect time to reassess your current backup and recovery strategy. Were you completely relying on Salesforce’s Data Recovery service? Why not start backing up with their native Weekly Export service instead? Any backup strategy is better than doing nothing at all.

We’d also encourage you to explore Salesforce AppExchange partner solutions, such as OwnBackup. OwnBackup brings ROI to its over 1,700 customers every day by helping them protect their Salesforce data. OwnBackup customers are almost 3x more likely to notice a data loss or corruption and they feel 3x more prepared to recover..

Now is the perfect opportunity to take a step back and put a comprehensive backup and recovery plan in place to ensure that your Salesforce data has the same level of protection as your other critical systems.
