Board Concludes Strategic Alternatives Review Process

BOSTON, MA – April 16, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq: CARB), a leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions for small and midsize businesses (SMBs), today announced preliminary financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2015, indicating strong bookings and revenue for the period. In addition, the Company announced that its board of directors has concluded its strategic alternatives exploration process, which began earlier this year.

PRELIMINARY FIRST QUARTER FINANCIAL RESULTS AND GUIDANCE FOR 2015
Carbonite expects first quarter revenue to exceed the high end of the previously provided guidance range of $31.9M – $32.1M and expects a smaller non-GAAP net loss per share than the previously provided guidance range of ($0.09) – ($0.07) per share. The Company also reaffirmed annual guidance that total revenue for the full year 2015 will be within or above the range of $137-$138 million, non-GAAP earnings per share will be within or above the range of $0.08 – $0.10, non-GAAP gross margin will increase approximately 200 basis points over 2014 and free cash flow will be in the range of $16-$18 million. These preliminary, unaudited results are based on management’s initial review of operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 and remain subject to completion of the Company’s standard quarterly closing and review process.

“I am extremely pleased to share our preliminary results for the first quarter of 2015,” said Mohamad Ali, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We saw excellent performance across our product portfolio, including greater than 40% year over year growth in SMB bookings, which comprised approximately 36% of total bookings compared to 28% in the prior year quarter, and 2% year over year growth in consumer bookings. I look forward to discussing our progress and my vision for capitalizing on the tremendous opportunities in the global business continuity market following the release of our first quarter earnings on April 28, 2015.”

CONCLUSION OF STRATEGIC ALTERNATIVES REVIEW PROCESS
On January 9, 2015, Carbonite announced that its board of directors had authorized the exploration of a broad range of strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the Company. The Company retained Deutsche Bank Securities Inc., Foley & Lardner LLP and Sidley Austin LLP to facilitate a comprehensive review to maximize value for shareholders. As part of this process Carbonite engaged with a significant number of potential strategic and financial acquirers, resulting in several companies signing confidentiality agreements and engaging in due diligence over the past three months. After extensive discussions with interested parties, the interests expressed were unlikely to lead to an acquisition of the entire Company and did not present an attractive alternative to the Company’s stand-alone plan. As a result, the board of directors unanimously determined that it is in the best interest of Carbonite and its shareholders to continue its present strategic course toward increased value creation for shareholders.

“We ran a robust process under the direction of our board of directors and independent advisors to ensure that all options available to deliver optimum shareholder value were thoroughly explored,” said Todd Krasnow, Lead Independent Director. “We always remain open and willing to engage in these types of discussions, and while we will not be sharing specific details about the process, the board is confident that under Mohamad Ali’s leadership, and through the execution of our strategic plan, Carbonite is well positioned to become the leading provider of cloud and hybrid business continuity solutions for SMBs and deliver greater shareholder value.”

CONFERENCE CALL AND WEBCAST INFORMATION
Carbonite will publish its full financial results for the first quarter of 2015 at 7:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. The news release will be available on Carbonite’s Investor Relations website at http://investor.carbonite.com.

In conjunction with this announcement, Carbonite will host a conference call on Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 8:30 a.m. EDT to review the results. This call will be webcast live and can be found in the investor relations section of the Company’s website at http://investor.carbonite.com. The conference call can also be accessed by dialing (877) 303-1393 in the United States or (315) 625-3228 internationally with the passcode 23959454.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures including bookings, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP income (loss) per share and free cash flow. Bookings represent the aggregate dollar value of customer subscriptions received during a period and are calculated as revenue recognized during the period plus the change in total deferred revenue (excluding deferred revenue recorded in connection with acquisitions) during the same period. Non-GAAP gross margin excludes amortization expense on intangible assets and stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP net income (loss) per share excludes amortization expense on intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, patent litigation expense, restructuring-related expense, acquisition-related expense, tender offer-related expense and CEO transition expense. Free cash flow is calculated by adding the payments related to corporate headquarter relocation, acquisition-related payments, tender-off related payments, CEO transition payments and the cash portion of the lease exit charge and subtracting cash paid for the purchase of property and equipment from net cash provided by operating activities.

The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company’s financial condition and results of operations. The Company’s management uses these non-GAAP measures to compare the Company’s performance to that of prior periods and uses these measures in financial reports prepared for management and the Company’s board of directors. The Company believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends and in comparing the Company’s financial measures with other software-as-a-service companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors.

The Company does not consider these non-GAAP measures in isolation or as an alternative to financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of these non-GAAP financial measures is that they exclude significant items that are required by GAAP to be recorded in the Company’s financial statements. In addition, they are subject to inherent limitations as they reflect the exercise of judgments by management. In order to compensate for these limitations, management presents its non-GAAP financial measures in connection with its GAAP results. The Company urges investors to review the reconciliation of its non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures, which it includes in press releases announcing quarterly financial results and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate the Company’s business.

Cautionary Language Concerning Forward-Looking Statements
This press release contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements represent the Company’s views as of the date of this press release based on the current intent, belief or expectations, estimates, forecasts, assumptions and projections of the Company and members of our management team. Words such as “expect,” “anticipate,” “should,” “believe,” “hope,” “target,” “project,” “goals,” “estimate,” “potential,” “predict,” “may,” “will,” “might,” “could,” “intend,” variations of these terms or the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Those statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding guidance on our future financial results and other projections or measures of future performance. Forward-looking statements are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, many of which involve factors or circumstances that are beyond the Company’s control.

Business continuity leader expands support for Google Cloud Storage Standard and DRA offerings to include Nearline for lowest cost long-term data retention

BURLINGTON, MA – April 16, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Unitrends, a leader in enterprise-level cloud recovery, today announced support for Google Cloud Storage Nearline to provide its customers with the lowest cost long-term cloud archival offering in the industry. This offering is possible through the company’s innovative Unitrends CloudHook™ capability, which facilitates archiving from Unitrends’ Recovery-Series physical and Unitrends Enterprise Backup™virtual appliances to third-party clouds, such as Google Cloud Storage, Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Rackspace Cloud Files. CloudHook has supported Google Cloud Storage’s Standard and Durable Reduced Availability (DRA) offerings for several years, and recently passed compatibility testing for the beta version of Google Cloud Storage Nearline.

“Our customers are constantly looking for new and innovative ways to cost-effectively manage their rapidly growing storage with less operational expense, and our support of Google Cloud Storage Nearline enables them to take advantage of Google’s groundbreaking new storage offering,” said Mark Campbell, chief marketing and technology officer at Unitrends. “We are unique in offering customers not only our own Unitrends Cloud for disaster recovery and business continuity, but also access to other third-party storage clouds. Giving customers this freedom is just one more way we’re delivering on our commitment to provide solutions that increase the confidence and productivity of IT professionals.”

Archiving data for long-term retention has traditionally been a complex, costly and time-consuming process, as companies typically back up data to rotational media, such as tape, and then work with a third-party vendor to get archived data offsite. Today, offerings such as Google Cloud Storage are taking the pain out of this process by letting customers archive directly to the cloud. CloudHook enables Unitrends customers to integrate their Recovery-Series physical appliances and Unitrends Enterprise Backup virtual appliances with their preferred cloud storage offering to easily and cost-effectively manage long-term retention of backup data.

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND – April 16, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — New Zealand-based cloud backup specialist Revert has secured a further $1.2 million in funding bringing the total funding received to date to over $1.6 million.

The investment round was led by Punakaiki Fund, who were joined by leading technology sector investors, existing investors, and Founder / CEO, Rich Chetwynd.

Revert is growing rapidly and currently backs up over 90 million files (over 80TB of data). With 5,800 active users on board in only four months, it has a solid growth path ahead.

“Our latest round of investment enables us to extend our proven backup solution out to more SaaS applications and to introduce intelligent new data monitoring and security features,” says Rich.

Currently, Revert provides backup services for many of the major cloud providers – Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, and MailChimp among others – while working on solutions for more business-focused apps like Salesforce and Box.

“Moving to the cloud led many people to stop worrying about backup services. Unfortunately, being in the cloud doesn’t mean your data is immune to data loss, theft, and security breaches. Having a backup of your cloud-based data is a great first step and we are expanding on that vision,” says Rich.

However, Rich says the real strength of Revert’s offering lies in proactive management of data security.

“We can see when someone is accessing cloud-based data and identify the theft or sharing of confidential information among other things. Being able to see that kind of activity and respond before it becomes a problem is a new frontier for data security, and Revert will be at the forefront of that movement.”

Rich expects this kind of capability to extend Revert’s reach into the corporate and business markets and the new funding will help drive the company in this direction.

Lance Wiggs from Punakaiki Fund said “it’s not the first time at the rodeo for Rich, Nicole or their investors and advisors, and they have identified a genuine unmet need in the market. The product is working well and with the addition of enterprise features we agree that the future looks extraordinarily strong.”

Midwest Provider of Data Solutions Expands Cloud Business with Disaster Recovery Service

US Signal expands to better protect customer data through partnership with Cisco Powered™ services

GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — US Signal, an industry-leading network and cloud hosting provider and Cisco Managed Services Cloud Partner (MSCP), announced today it has expanded its portfolio of services with Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS). DRaaS service will provide customers a wider range of disaster recovery options to ensure secure, reliable operations for US Signal’s growing customer base.

Home Computing Magazine reports that 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster and 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.

“We’re very pleased to add DRaaS to our existing Data Protection Suite of services,” said Matt VanderZwaag, Director of Product Development . “Our entire Data Protection Suite complements our existing US Signal Cloud Hosting services and demonstrates our investment and commitment to providing our customers with solutions that allow them to expand and transform their business.”

US Signal DRaaS continuously replicates virtual machines, applications and operating systems of a primary server environment to a diverse, secure virtual data center. Best used as a proactive tool to protect businesses against possible information technology disasters, a fully replicated instance of the replicated environment can be deployed immediately and is fully managed by US Signal. DRaaS delivers consistent protection across an entire organization with the ability to support multiple sites on one or more virtual machines.

“Our customers trust our network and existing cloud infrastructure. Now they can trust US Signal to fully implement and test their Disaster Recovery plans,” continued VanderZwaag. “US Signal owns the data centers and the network between them. Customers placing workloads in our cloud can now replicate those resources and experience industry-leading latency and recovery response times meeting their lowest RPO and RTO requirements necessary to get their business up and running in the event of an unplanned happening. The overall solution we can provide is pretty special.”

US Signal will continue to develop products and solutions to meet client needs for innovative product offerings. Data protection is vital to longevity of businesses, companies that aren’t able to resume operations within ten days (of a disaster hit) are not likely to survive, according to the Strategic Research Institute.

About US Signal:
With over 14,000 miles of lit fiber and metro rings in 23 strategic tier-one, tier-two and tier-three markets, US Signal’s infrastructure is one of the largest fully deployed networks in the Midwest. The network’s optical backbone features Cisco Systems’ latest carrier class architecture and supports all of US Signal’s products. US Signal’s product portfolio includes a full suite of colocation, disaster recovery, security and cloud hosting services to complement its network offerings. Delivery of these services over their protected network ensures US Signal customer’s unparalleled flexibility, resiliency and scalability to meet their business needs.

Leading Provider of Cloud-Based Email and Calendar Solutions Deploys Adaptive Flash Platform to Support Nearly One Million Email Users

SAN JOSE, CA – Apr 16, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — As one of the fastest growing Software as a Service (SaaS) and application providers in the world, BlueTie Inc. supports thousands of businesses and millions of users with its cloud-based e-mail, calendaring, and collaboration solutions and application suite. As BlueTie’s business rapidly expanded to support nearly one million users, the SaaS provider evaluated and selected Adaptive Flash storage arrays from Nimble Storage (NYSE: NMBL), the flash storage solutions company. As a result, the SaaS provider realized a dramatic reduction in data center footprint, increased application performance, and obtained an immediate return on investment.

Prior to deploying Nimble, BlueTie relied on aging legacy storage that kept its IT organization busy managing various components across its data center, resulting in operational complexity and inefficiency that increased costs and stifled IT productivity. It became increasingly apparent that BlueTie needed to either upgrade its existing environment or switch to a different storage platform. BlueTie decided it was time to evaluate new technologies gaining momentum in the storage market with the following goals for its IT infrastructure: reduce the company’s data center footprint; optimize performance for its email platform supporting nearly one million users; scale storage capacity to support expansion space; and keep a couple of pennies in its pocket for a rainy day. After evaluating a number of storage vendors, BlueTie determined the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform was the only solution that could meet the four criteria.

Following a seamless transition to the Nimble Adaptive Flash platform, the company has realized impressive gains in application performance, storage capacity, as well as a reduction in its overall data center footprint. According to Robert Doty, President and CEO at BlueTie, “We are now hosting over 800,000 mailboxes on our Nimble storage, and are nowhere near the performance ceiling of that array. We like the way the Nimble CASL file system ‘sequentializes’ random writes into large sequential stripes. We knew that model would be a good fit for us, since our data is so random. Nimble had the perfect solution for our needs.”

The company experienced a reduction in processing power required to operate BlueTie’s production environment because the storage subsystem performance increased significantly. The reduced system load has enabled BlueTie to operate its mail service using far fewer servers – a reduction of 33U to just 10U – with a reduction of its storage footprint from 3-1/2 racks to 12U of Nimble. As a result of the footprint reduction, BlueTie is now saving more than $36,000 in power costs on an annualized basis. Nimble also provided 1.3X compression on all of BlueTie’s data, allowing the organization to remove its previous software compression functionality, freeing up an additional 16TB of storage.

Since deploying Nimble, BlueTie has slashed its IT support costs significantly. “We were paying $70,000 per year for support on our old platform which we were able to eliminate entirely by switching to Nimble,” said Doty. “When you add that savings to our $36,000 cut in electricity costs each year, the Nimble array will easily pay for itself in just a few years. Everything is running very smoothly on Nimble, in contrast to the myriad problems we were having with our legacy provider. Nimble designed and built the arrays specifically for the needs of our organization. I really appreciate that!”

Honorees include Michael Factor for Cloud Storage, Mickey Iqbal for Enterprise IT Architecture, and Bala Rajaraman for Cloud Services 

ARMONK, NY – 15 Apr 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) has awarded 10 of its top technologists, scientists and researchers with the distinction of IBM Fellow, the company’s most prestigious technical honor.

Flickr Photo Summary: http://goo.gl/3PM7de

“Innovation is the life blood of IBM. The men and women we honor today as 2015 IBM Fellows are the driving force behind that innovation,” said Ginni Rometty, IBM chairman, president and CEO. “They are tackling some of the toughest and most urgent technical challenges facing business and society. In the process, they are leading the tech industry into a new era of computing where cognitive systems, Big Data and analytics, cloud, mobile and security technologies are changing the world.”

The strategic disciplines represented by the 2015 IBM Fellows range from cloud computing and enterprise systems to predictive analytics and finance industry expertise. In addition to their research and development responsibilities, each of the new Fellows will choose a country from IBM’s emerging markets where they will serve as a technical ambassador, continuing a program initiated in 2013.

To be named an IBM Fellow requires achievements across four important criteria:

· Sustained innovation in some of the world’s most important technologies.

· Significant recognition as leaders among IBM’s executive and technical communities.

· Broad industry acknowledgement of their accomplishments.

· A strong history of helping clients successfully deploy new technologies and business models.

Collectively, the 10 new Fellows have filed for 441 patents, of which 289 have been granted so far. IBM generated an industry record 7,534 patents in 2014, marking the 22nd consecutive year it topped the annual list of U.S. patent recipients.

Since the first appointments by Thomas J. Watson, Jr. in 1963, there have been 267 IBM Fellows – 95 of whom remain active IBM employees. Watson’s vision was to give Fellows significant creative freedom to pursue research and engineering directions that have the potential for transforming the world of information technology.

The 10 new IBM Fellows are:

Donna Eng Dillenberger – Mainframe Systems - http://goo.gl/cBIW54

Donna Dillenberger is the global leader of enterprise systems work at IBM Research, continuing a distinguished career of contributions to System Z products — the mainstays of industries ranging from banking to transportation. Her achievements include innovative work in enabling servers within data centers to share memory resources while using 100 percent of their processing power.  In 2014, Donna began working on transforming mainframes to become more cognitive — enabling interaction with users in a more natural way and developing components that can detect patterns in business data that provide insights that help organizations run better.

Cloud Services Provider Enables Healthcare Industry with Expanded Security, Accessibility, and Disaster Recovery Capabilities

LOS ANGELES, CA – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — dinCloud, a cloud services provider that helps businesses rapidly migrate to the cloud through business provisioning, today announced cloud services specially developed and packaged for the healthcare industry. These services were designed to meet the growing needs of healthcare providers looking for a secure hosted solution with business continuity/disaster recovery capabilities.

Due to its highly regulated nature, the healthcare industry has been slow to adopt public cloud models, instead investing primarily in hybrid or private models (like dinCloud) to address security concerns derived from stringent HIPAA laws. With its specialized services for healthcare, dinCloud offers its award-winning hosted virtual desktops, hosted virtual servers, and cloud storage.

dinCloud’s secure cloud offerings provide the flexibility to access the entire digital workspace (specific to a user’s desktop, settings, documents, and applications) from multiple devices. This enables healthcare providers to simultaneously run back and front office operations from anywhere, anytime, using a desktop, laptop, iPad, or Android device. Additionally, dinCloud’s solutions for the healthcare sector feature heightened security measures with multiple lines of defense to protect digital assets and adhere to industry regulations.

RoundTable Technology, a dinCloud Value Added Reseller (VAR), and provider of strategic technology services to small to mid-sized businesses in the Northeast, white labels dinCloud’s hosted virtual desktop and server solutions. Evan Desjardins, president of RoundTable, says that compared to other solutions available in the market, dinCloud offers a unique service offering that is flexible, full featured, and cost effective for its customers.

“The industry requirements that healthcare organizations deal with are difficult enough, let alone having to manage the complexities of the noisy cloud market space. Having an affordable, scalable solution like dinCloud, that is easy to provision and provides accessibility from anywhere, is a huge advantage,” said Desjardins.

One of RoundTable’s customers is Occupational Medical Consulting, LLC (OMC) of Leeds, Maine. The organization migrated to dinCloud’s hosted virtual servers after its existing cloud-based solution vendor was having difficulties. OMC needed a reliable provider that offered a full featured, but customizable solution, which was also reasonably priced. After evaluating several providers, OMC chose dinCloud for its simple pricing model and flexible, scalable solution offering, which allows OMC to add additional resources (e.g. RAM, CPU, hard drive, etc.) quickly via dinManage.

“We wanted a solution that afforded us the flexibility to tailor our infrastructure needs to business demands and pressures,” said Dwight Payne, software director, Occupational Medical Consulting, LLC. “In addition to dinCloud’s pricing and full featured solution, they were incredibly responsive to our needs and even configured a new server database using Microsoft SQL Server 2014 so we could be on the latest and greatest – the new server is far more feature rich than our last configuration.”

Medicalodges, Inc., a post-acute healthcare organization, providing quality healthcare to seniors and long term care patients in the Midwest, is also using dinCloud’s hosted virtual servers. Headquartered in Coffeyville, Kansas, Medicalodges was introduced to dinCloud through its technology partner, CDW.

Stephen Arndt, consulting CIO at Medicalodges said the organization was looking to get out of the business of maintaining its own hardware and needed a partner that could maintain and monitor Medicalodges’ data center infrastructure that also had redundancy and business continuity at its core offering. “We looked at several providers, but went with dinCloud because they had the best understanding of our HIPAA and BAA requirements. We were also able to alter our server specifications on the fly,” added Arndt.

Healthcare organizations utilizing dinCloud’s solutions can realize several benefits including collaboration, security, disaster recovery, cost savings and scalability.

About dinCloud:
dinCloud is a cloud services provider that helps both commercial and public sector organizations rapidly migrate to the cloud through business provisioning, provided via its strong channel base of VARs and MSPs.

Provides Hassle Free Storage with No Additional Hardware Costs to Manage Backing Up of Copious Amounts of Data and Archiving Limitations

HOUSTON, TX – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — SoftNAS™, the No. 1 bestselling NAS in the cloud, today announced availability of SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway, a complete software-defined solution for on-premise, hybrid and public cloud storage to manage the costly expenses around backing up expansive data and the time required to archive older data. SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway enables on-premise and hybrid cloud storage deployments as a unified shared file system to maximize cost savings and flexibility. Local caching and S3 object storage connectivity make SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway ideal for enterprises, SMBs and departments using on-premise storage and for service providers offering hybrid cloud services, such as backup and archival solutions.

“Hybrid cloud, and by extension hybrid IT, is here to stay. Few companies will only do public or only do private cloud computing, and no company should miss the opportunity to leverage both. In the end, a hybrid of private and public cloud, noncloud, and multiple public cloud services will serve the needs of more companies than any one cloud model alone,” wrote, Daryl Plummer and David Mitchell Smith, Gartner.[1]

According to Research and Markets, an industry research firm, the Cloud Storage Gateway market in the US is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 54% over the period 2015-2019. In addition, businesses are becoming overwhelmed with data, which is doubling every 18 months according to industry research firm IDC.[2]

“SoftNAS is transforming how IT gets delivered making data available everywhere customers need it, without extra infrastructure or resource investment costs,” commented Rick Braddy, CEO of SoftNAS. “With SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway, organizations can leverage the investment they have already made to access unlimited capabilities for managing data without vendor hardware lock-in.”

Move Beyond Legacy Cloud Gateway Capabilities with a Rich Unified File System
Many departments within SMBs and enterprises struggle with managing disparate islands of data. The current solutions are either too costly to implement or what is available doesn’t create a centralized solution. In addition to providing gateway capabilities, SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway surpasses the singular gateway concept by combining three key components:

  • Access to on-premise and private cloud storage, including SAN, VSAN and S3-compatible object storage
  • Access to public cloud storage, including block and S3-compatible object storage
  • A unified shared file system with NAS filer features accessed via NFS and CIFS/SMB

SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway overcomes S3 object storage limitations enabling customers who want the convenience of a traditional file system and the ability to use S3 compatible object storage to leverage unlimited scalability and realize cost-benefits.

Faster Backup and Archival
Currently, businesses struggle with backups that can cause resource restrictions due to time required to back-up data, on top of increased space needs and/or costly hardware requirements. The SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway Cache for S3 compatible object storage reduces backup windows also from any SoftNAS supported platform including AWS, vSphere, Azure, vCloud Air, Hyper-V to S3. Any NFS or CIFS compatible backup tool can now be used to store high-speed backups using SoftNAS Cloud File Gateway onto local storage, S3 compatible object storage and iSCSI SANs, including market leading back up vendors and replicas of VMs.

With the concurrent release of SoftNAS Cloud Version 3.3, cloud backups to S3 happen up to 10 times faster and backup and archival uses cases are up to 5 times faster. The S3 caching feature allows backups to run faster by caching data locally and copying data to highly-durable AWS S3 cloud storage in the background.

Shared File Storage for VMware VSAN
SoftNAS complements VMware Virtual SAN with the requisite NAS feature set, combined with unified storage access using NFS and CIFS/SMB with Active Directory integration. It extends the VMware environment to include highly durable cloud storage, up to 16 petabytes of secure off-site cloud storage per SoftNAS filer without costly, specialized hardware.

SoftNAS achieves the following:

• Extends Virtual SAN storage with NFS, CIFS/AD and cloud storage

• Offers a full NAS filer feature set, including thin-provisioning, instant snapshots with SnapClones™, RAM and SSD caching, inline deduplication, and data compression.

• Access to patent pending Hybrid HA tunneling provides non-stop Cloud HA across datacenters with block replication, automatic failover and seamless HA storage between a premise-based VMware data center and vCloud Air

Provides a complete software-defined storage solution for private, hybrid and public clouds that is easy to download, install and run on existing VMware vSphere host with a feature set including:

• Encrypted cloud storage

• Highly durable cloud storage

• SSD caching for high performance

• Accessible via standard NFS, CIFS protocols

• No specialized hardware required

• Transforms VMware into a complete storage solution

• Multi-tenant capable for service providers

Expanded Platform Support to Extend Storage Investments

Scalable solution simplifies information management and adds value to IT investments

SAN JOSE, CA – April 14, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Quorum, the leader in instant application recovery, today announced that due to customer demand it is expanding the capabilities of its Archive Vault solution with the launch of onQ Archive Vault Gateway. The new solution is set to help customers integrate archive and backup, take advantage of data center availability and realize more business potential from their disaster recovery (DR) solution.

The onQ Archive Vault Gateway is a new approach to data archiving. It allows customers to leverage their existing storage hardware infrastructure, creating a long-term archived copy of their data, while getting the most out of their IT investments.

The benefits of the onQ Archive Vault Gateway include:

  • Comprehensive solution – as an add-on to Quorum’s flagship product, the onQ, the onQ Archive Vault Gateway is designed for customers to add long term data retention to their existing backup and DR capabilities using their own storage
  • Scalability – the onQ Archive Vault Gateway scalability is only limited by the storage volume that the customer provides thus allowing for unlimited growth potential.
  • Ease of use – Customers can pull archive copies from the onQ Archive Vault Gateway with one click. The solution can also be configured locally or remotely to create a repository that is off-site for reliable DR capabilities.
  • Compliance – the onQ Archive Gateway’s transfer data encryption option meets compliance needs, mitigates risk and enables litigation readiness.

The launch of the onQ Archive Gateway reflects Quorum’s mission to make DR a key part of any business strategy.

Kemal Balioglu, vice president of products for Quorum said: “Businesses should be getting much more out of their DR solution than just an insurance policy against disaster. The launch of onQ Archive Vault Gateway is the next step in Quorum’s product portfolio and advances our mission to provide value beyond DR. Using the complete Quorum solution set, our customers have access to a highly available DR platform and an effective way of testing applications, services, archive and business continuity strategies in a safe virtual environment.”

Brent Roye of Atinum Energy agreed: “Today we use Quorum’s Archive Vault solution to create an offsite repository of long term archive copies of critical data that is integrated seamlessly with our instant disaster recovery capabilities. The Archive Vault Gateway will extend the convergence of backup, archive and DR to take advantage of existing hardware, which is a great way of adding value to IT investments.”

KISTA, SWEDEN – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Regulatory News:

Proact IT Group: (STO:PACT)

Den Braven, the specialized market leader in, among others, the production of high quality ISO-certified materials for the building sector, has chosen Proact as its new partner for managing their backup and fall-back environment.

Den Braven was looking for a partner who could be deployed as an extension for managing operations for which no specific knowledge of the application landscape of its organization is required.

Fred Vugts, ICT Manager, Den Braven Benelux: “We opted for Proact because of its expertise in the field of backup and the wide range of data centre solutions and cloud services. Proact has shown itself to be a flexible partner who is able to react quickly to our needs. This gives us a lot of confidence in the cooperation.”

Through the out-tasking of the daily management of the back-up environment, Den Braven creates more time for its own IT team to focus on new applications and projects that add immediate value to the organization.

Lucas den Os, Managing Director of Proact Netherlands: “Out-tasking differs from out-sourcing in that the client retains the control. With its choice of Proact, Den Braven ensures access to best-in-class expertise, innovative products and a wide portfolio of cloud services. We look forward to becoming an extension of the IT department of Den Braven”.

Slovakia-based cloud solutions maker released a new concept of a backup service with an unlimited storage space

BRATISLAVA, SLOVAKIA – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, MegaBackup Corp., a company that specializes in cloud-based solutions for storing and backing up data, has announced that it has launched its new product called MegaBackup. Since the beta-version of a product was released in early 2014, MegaBackup Corp. received a massive positive feedback from the users who tried it out. Following the twelve months of creating a fully-functional solution, MegaBackup Corp presents the MegaBackup – a new provider of cloud-based solutions with an unlimited storage space.

The company claims that its product is based on conceptually new approach to the cloud-based technologies.

“When we made the decision to create MegaBackup, we set two major priorities, that became the gold standards of our product – simplicity and security. We saw the lack of good, secure and simple services for data backup on the market, as the majority of existing solutions were created for large corporations or technically experienced users, therefore they are hard to understand and use for people without technical background. The feedback from our clients proves that we succeeded at unifying top-notch security technologies with a simple interface”, says Andrew Shvets, MegaBackup Corp. CMO.

According to the company’s spokesperson, Megabackup Corp. is now working on implementing a bundle of tools for file sharing, synchronization and a few more useful features into MegaBackup.

About MegaBackup Corp.:
MegaBackup Corp. is a cloud solutions company, based in Slovakia with a regional office in Germany. Founded in late 2013, MegaBackup Corp. consists of experts in cloud solutions as well as security and data protection technologies. The company’s main product is called MegaBackup, it’s beta-version was launched in early 2014. As of April, 2015, the product’s fully-functional version was released.

Data-Deposit-Box-DataDepositBox-Online-Backup-Cloud-Data-Remote-Backup

WOBURN, MA – April 15, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — According to the Kaspersky Lab Consumer Security Risks Survey, 21 percent of respondents assume their passwords are of no value to cyber criminals. Furthermore, the survey shows that respondents often take the easy way out when creating and storing passwords. For example, only 26 percent of those surveyed create a separate password for each account and just 6 percent use password storage software.

However, passwords are the keys to an online account holders’ personal data, private life and even their money, which is very valuable to a cybercriminal. Despite the fact that passwords provide access to valuable information, the survey shows that respondents are not always careful. Specifically, 18 percent of those surveyed write down their passwords in a notebook and 17 percent freely share their personal account passwords with family members and friends.

Meanwhile, statistics show that password theft is a common occurrence. In 2014, according to Kaspersky Security Network figures, Kaspersky Lab products protected 3.5 million people from malicious attacks that were capable of stealing usernames and passwords to accounts of various types.

“Even if you are not a celebrity or a billionaire, cybercriminals can profit from your credentials,” says Elena Kharchenko, head of consumer product management, Kaspersky Lab. “A password is like a key to your home; you wouldn’t leave your door unlocked, or put your keys where anyone could find them, just because you don’t think you have anything of great value. Complex passwords unique to each account, carefully stored in a safe place, will save you a lot of trouble.”

To protect accounts against unauthorized entry, Kaspersky Lab recommends the following:

  • Create a unique password for each account: if one password is stolen, the rest will remain safe.
  • Create a complex password that won’t be easy to crack even if cybercriminals are using special programs. That means using at least 8 symbols including upper and lower-case letters, numbers, punctuation marks and no pet names or dates of birth.
  • Do not give your password to anyone, not even your friends. If cybercriminals can’t steal it from your device, they might be able do it from someone else’s.
  • Store your password in a safe place. Don’t write it down on paper; either remember it or use a special program for storing passwords from a reliable vendor such as Kaspersky Password Manager, which is also integrated in Kaspersky Total Security.

Kaspersky Password Manager does more than just securely storing strong passwords; it automatically enters the user’s credentials on pages without the need to remember several complex passwords. Additionally, Kaspersky Password Manager for Windows includes a strong password generator.

LONDON, UK – April 14, 2015 – /BackupReview.info/ —  The Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at Databarracks, regardless of whether they are permanent employees or third-party contractors and suppliers; receive a minimum hourly wage of £7.85 – significantly higher than the national minimum wage of £6.50.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living using the ‘Minimum Income Standard’ for the UK. Decisions about what to include in this standard are set by the public; it is a social consensus about what people need to make ends meet.

Peter Groucutt, managing director at Databarracks commented: “Without our incredible team, we wouldn’t be the business we are today. We make our biggest investments in our employees – they are what enables us to continuously deliver and improve upon our world-class services. Accrediting as a Living Wage employer is just another way for us to show them how much we appreciate what they do.”

Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross party support, with public backing from the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition.

Complete and Easy-to-Use, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE Is Veeam’s Gift to the IT Pro Community; Joins the Company’s Large Family of Free Tools

BAAR, SWITZERLAND – April 14, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Endpoint backup has long been a tedious task that everyone knows they should be doing. Today, IT professionals now have a simple and free solution for backing up endpoints, which has long been a major data protection headache. Veeam® has released a new free tool that requires no additional software or purchases. Veeam Endpoint Backup™ FREE is a gift to the IT community, joining the Veeam family of free tools that also includes Veeam Backup™ Free Edition, Veeam ONE™ Free Edition and Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V. Veeam has a history of providing stand-alone free tools to the IT community that solve real challenges, beginning with FastSCP™, Veeam’s very first product, originally released in October 2006.

Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE provides a simple solution for backing up Windows-based desktops and laptops.

It’s so easy to install that users can be up and running in just a couple of minutes. And it’s just as easy to use. With Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, users can back up endpoints to an external hard drive, network shared folder or a Veeam Backup & Replication™ repository. If a user’s system crashes, hard drive fails, or files get corrupted or accidentally deleted, they can recover whatever they need in minutes. Even better, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE enables the creation of bootable recovery media, which helps users to fix issues with their machine which may prevent the operating system from booting, or even reset the Local Administrator account’s password.

So, whether someone wants to back up their personal device, protect the last couple of physical servers in a data center, or ensure that data on a small company’s dozen or so laptops can be recovered if lost, Veeam’s new free tool has it covered. And though it is free, thanks to the help of close to 20,000 very active beta users, this product delivers the same reliability as Veeam’s flagship software solutions.

“Even in today’s highly virtualized environments, most endpoints remain physical and they need to be backed up,” said Doug Hazelman, vice president of product strategy at Veeam. “It’s no small problem. With more than 330 million Windows-based devices being shipped last year, that’s a lot of endpoints to protect. While availability solutions have evolved exponentially for the virtualized data center, endpoint protection has been somewhat ignored. With Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE, IT professionals now have a simple solution for backing up endpoints. Plus, if the IT organization still has a few physical servers left in their data center, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE can help fill that gap.”

While simple to use, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE is also a powerful product. Key backup features include the ability to do image-based volume and file-level backups, with flexible configuration including multiple scheduling options. Recovery is also flexible and effortless with several easy-to-use options all from the same image-based backup, including bare-metal recovery to the same or dissimilar hardware, volume and file-level restores. Additionally, thanks to the same backup format, users of Veeam Backup FREE Edition are able to perform application item recovery with Veeam Explorers™ for Microsoft Exchange, Active Directory, SQL Server and SharePoint from backup of server machines created with Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE.

Additionally, users of paid editions of Veeam Backup & Replication in VMware vSphere or Microsoft Hyper-V virtual environments will be able take full advantage of Veeam backup repositories as target locations for Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE backups, and perform basic centralized monitoring and management of endpoint backup jobs from within the Veeam Backup & Replication console. This integration extends some familiar capabilities (e.g., enhanced application item recovery with Veeam Explorers™, export of backed up physical disk content into various virtual disk formats, backup files encryption, etc.) to endpoint backups, while allowing backup administrators to control Veeam backup repository access to end users with flexible permissions system.

“Endpoint backup has been a difficult task for SMBs and individuals,” said Liz Conner, Research Manager at IDC. “With this new free tool, Veeam has introduced an interesting and elegant solution for both individuals looking to back up their own personal machines, or as protection for a small number of enterprise endpoints or even a few physical servers.”

“If you want a no nonsense, no fussing around, no long winded marketing-hyped product that just works, Veeam Endpoint FREE is what you’re looking for,” said Femi Adegoke, Technology Director at FATeknollogee. “I know if I was Veeam, I’d charge for this product. It’s too good to be free.”

“We have implemented Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE as a self-service tool for our DBAs,” said Didier Van Hoye, Technical Architect at the Flemish Geographical Information Agency (FGIA). “They have full control over their SQL Server native backup to files on disk, where they can keep them for 5 to 6 days, but for longer term retention they need to move them to lower tier storage. Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE provides an easy to use tool to back-up SQL backup files to the lower tier and provide easy self-service restore when needed for use with the native SQL Server backup restore tools. It’s so easy.”

Veeam Endpoint Backup™ FREE now joins the Veeam family of free tools that also includes:

  • Veeam Backup Free Edition with Veeam Explorers for:
    • Microsoft Exchange
    • Microsoft Active Directory
    • Microsoft SQL Server
    • Microsoft SharePoint
    • HP snapshots
    • NetApp snapshots
  • Veeam ONE Free Edition
  • Veeam Task Manager for Hyper-V

Data-Deposit-Box-DataDepositBox-Online-Backup-Cloud-Data-Remote-Backup

ARMONK, NY – 13 Apr 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — To dramatically advance the quality and effectiveness of personal healthcare, IBM (NYSE: IBM) is establishing a Watson Health Cloud that will provide a secure and open platform for physicians, researchers, insurers and companies focused on health and wellness solutions. The HIPAA-enabled Watson Health Cloud will enable secure access to individualized insights and a more complete picture of the many factors that can affect people’s health.


Video: IBM Watson Health and the Future of Healthcare

Extending the company’s exclusive Watson cognitive computing platform, IBM is:

  • Entering new partnerships with leading companies including Apple, Johnson & Johnson andMedtronic to help optimize consumer and medical devices for data collection, analysis and feedback.
  • Acquiring Explorys and Phytel to advance its healthcare analytics capabilities.
  • Establishing a dedicated business unit – IBM Watson Health, to be headquartered in the Boston, MA, area.

The future of health is all about the individual. With the increasing prevalence of personal fitness trackers, connected medical devices, implantables and other sensors that collect real-time information, the average person is likely to generate more than one million gigabytes of health-related data in their lifetime (the equivalent of more than 300 million books).

However, it is difficult to connect these dynamic and constantly growing pools of information with more traditional sources such as doctor-created medical records, clinical research and individual genomes – data sets that are fragmented and not easily shared. A highly scalable and secure global information platform is essential to pull out individualized insights to help people and providers make timely, evidence-based decisions about health-related issues.

“All this data can be overwhelming for providers and patients alike, but it also presents an unprecedented opportunity to transform the ways in which we manage our health,” said John E. Kelly III, IBM senior vice president, solutions portfolio and research. “We need better ways to tap into and analyze all of this information in real-time to benefit patients and to improve wellness globally. Only IBM has the advanced cognitive capabilities of Watson and can pull together the vast ecosystem of partners, practitioners and researchers needed to drive change, as well as to provide the open, secure and scalable platform needed to make it all possible.”

Capturing Real-time Data to Optimize Personalized Decision-making
IBM is collaborating with Apple, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic to create new health-based offerings that leverage information collected from personal health, medical and fitness devices. The results will be better insights, real-time feedback and recommendations to improve everything from personal health and wellness to acute and chronic care. These relationships are non-exclusive, and IBM anticipates many more companies to leverage the Watson Health Cloud platform.

IBM and Apple will expand their partnership with IBM Watson Health Cloud to provide a secure cloud platform and analytics for Apple’s HealthKit and ResearchKit. This will support health data entered by customers in iOS apps and also arm medical researchers with a secure, open data storage solution with access to IBM’s most sophisticated data analytics capabilities

Johnson & Johnson will collaborate with IBM to create intelligent coaching systems centered on preoperative and postoperative patient care, including joint replacement and spinal surgery. Solutions will be mobile-based, accessing the Watson Health Cloud and leveraging IBM Watson’s cognitive capabilities. Johnson & Johnson will also look to launch new health apps targeting chronic conditions, which currently cost consumers as much as 80 percent of the $7 trillion global healthcare spend.

Medtronic will leverage the Watson Health Cloud insights platform to collaborate with IBM around delivery of new highly-personalized care management solutions for people with diabetes. The solutions will receive and analyze patient information and data from various Medtronic devices including insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, and use this information to provide dynamic, personalized diabetes management strategies to patients and their providers.

Acquisitions Bolster Ability to Extract and Share Deep Insights
To complement its existing capabilities, IBM has reached agreement to acquire Cleveland-based Explorys and Dallas-based Phytel, two healthcare technology companies that are widely recognized for their leadership in applying Big Data and analytics to help improve the quality of health for individuals and large population groups.

A spin-off from the Cleveland Clinic in 2009, Explorys’ secure cloud-computing platform is used by 26 major integrated healthcare systems to identify patterns in diseases, treatments and outcomes. It integrates more than 315 billion clinical, financial, and operational data elements, spanning 50 million unique patients, 360 hospitals, and more than 317,000 providers. Market intelligence firm IDC just named Explorys global leader in Healthcare Clinical and Financial Analysis.

Phytel develops and sells cloud-based services that help healthcare providers and care teams work together to ensure care is effective and coordinated in order to meet new healthcare quality requirements and reimbursement models. It was just named the leader in the population health management category by the 2014 Best in KLAS Awards: Software & Services.

The acquisitions bolster IBM’s efforts to apply advanced analytics and cognitive computing to help primary care providers, large hospital systems and physician networks improve healthcare quality and effect healthier patient outcomes.

Terms were not disclosed for either deal.

Watson Health Unit and the Watson Health Cloud Build on Core IBM Strengths
Building on strengths in cognitive computing, analytics, security and cloud, the new Watson Health unit aims to dramatically improve the ability of doctors, researchers and insurers to innovate by surfacing new insights from the massive amount of personal health data being created daily.

The Watson Health Cloud platform allows this information to be anonymized, shared and combined with a dynamic and constantly-growing aggregated view of clinical, research and social health data. IBM and its vast ecosystem of clients, partners and medical researchers can surface new connections between these diverse and previously siloed healthcare data sets, and spur the creation of a new generation of data-driven applications and solutions designed to advance health and wellness. Individual patients and larger health populations alike will benefit as providers share and apply those insights in real-time to drive better, faster and less expensive treatments.

The medical community is one of the earliest adopters of Watson cognitive computing technology, where IBM has collaborated with leading hospitals and research institutes including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic and the New York Genome Center to advance Watson’s healthcare capabilities and to help transform how medicine is taught, researched and practiced.

Innovative partners including Welltok, Modernizing Medicine, Pathway Genomics and GenieMD are already using Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities, giving rise to a whole new breed of health apps that are redefining how individuals and organizations think about personal health management.

Cognitive computing systems learn and interact naturally with people to extend what either humans or machine could do on their own. They help human experts make better decisions by penetrating the complexity of Big Data.

“Watson Health builds on years of collaborative relationships with leaders across the healthcare ecosystem,” said Michael Rhodin, senior vice president, IBM Watson. “The groundbreaking applications of Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities by medical clients and partners clearly demonstrated the potential to fundamentally change the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare delivery worldwide. We’re excited to broaden access to world-class technology and to work with our partners to transform health and wellness for millions of people.”

IBM will open a headquarters location for the new unit in the Boston area and expand its Watson presence in New York City. It will dedicate at least 2000 consultants, medical practitioners, clinicians, developers and researchers to design, develop and accelerate the adoption of Watson Health capabilities. The new unit will include IBM’s existing Smarter Care and Social Programs practice, which was created three years ago following the acquisition of Curam Software, a leading provider of health and social program management solutions.

IBM has received more than 1300 patents in healthcare, life sciences and medical devices.  Its invention of the excimer laser used for LASIK surgery was awarded the National Medal of Technology in 2011, and Blue Gene, the first supercomputer to successfully model protein-folding, received the award in 2009.

In 2014, Box introduced Box for Industries, an initiative to bring tailored solutions to key industries, combining Box’s platform capabilities – workflow, compliance, and metadata – with its extensive ecosystem of partners. To further this initiative, Box acquired MedXT in October 2014 to integrate medical image viewing and support for DICOM files within Box’s Preview technology, one of the most powerful and engaging features of the Box platform that was recently enhanced.

The agreement to acquire Verold continues Box’s deep investment in developing industry-focused solutions for businesses, as well as advancing how content is previewed and experienced across the web and mobile. Founded in Toronto, Canada in 2010, Verold has pioneered development with WebGL technology to deliver powerful content creation and editing tools for interactive projects that have broad applications for information workers. For example, with Verold:

  • Engineers can share 3D product designs across a global manufacturing supply chain to dramatically reduce the time-to-market for new products.
  • Educators can create immersive, interactive experiences of complex models as a supplement to traditional drawings and static diagrams for engaging students.
  • Marketers can create and collaborate on interactive demonstrations of products that engage consumers, making it easier to understand key features and benefits that are difficult to communicate in traditional 2D formats.

“At Verold, we believe interactive 3D web content has the power to transform a wide range of industries and applications, from manufacturing to ecommerce, and we believe the tools to build the 3D web should be broadly accessible,” said Ross McKegney, CEO, Verold. “Box’s incredible success in building an enterprise content platform that already reaches 45,000 businesses presents a one-of-a-kind opportunity for us to bring the future of 3D content to millions of people around the world. We’re thrilled to be joining Box and can’t wait to get started.”

After a record year in 2014, the company continues to grow faster than the overall disk-based backup market and increase its market share

WESTBOROUGH, MA – April 14, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid, a leading provider of disk-based backup solutions, today announced that Q1 2015 was its most successful quarter to date. The company achieved record bookings and marked its fifth consecutive quarter as both cash and P&L positive. In addition, the company reported double-digit growth from Q1 2014.

“Q1 2015 was another record-setting bookings quarter for ExaGrid,” said Bill Andrews, CEO of ExaGrid. “Our competitive win rate remains high as organizations continue to see the benefit of our architectural approach to backup storage versus simply adding data deduplication to a backup application or to an inline/scale-up storage appliance. The combination of ExaGrid’s unique landing zone and scale-out architecture solves all the problems of backup storage and is especially effective in virtual environments.”

In addition to record bookings and five consecutive quarters of being cash and P&L positive, ExaGrid has continued its expansion with the addition of sales teams in key regions in North America, EMEA, and Singapore. ExaGrid also expanded its channel program, increasing its partner status with CDW and adding Lifeboat as its newest North American distributor. Lifeboat, a value-added distributor for virtualization, business continuity and other technically sophisticated products, will distribute ExaGrid’s disk-based backup with data deduplication appliance to its resellers in the United States and Canada.

ExaGrid continues to grow faster than the overall disk-based backup market, and as a result is gaining market share. The company remains committed to solving the problems of backup and being a valued partner to its more than 2,000 mid-market and enterprise customers, representing over 10,000 installations. This March, ExaGrid received Network Computing’s first ever Return on Investment Award due to its track record of lowering operating costs and improving productivity, further validating the value ExaGrid provides to its customers.

Successfully Tested Integration with BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway Results in Cost Effective Solution for Storing Critical Content

BOULDER, CO – April 14, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ – Spectra Logic announced today the proof of concept integration of BlackPearl™ Deep Storage Gateway with NetApp StorageGRID® Webscale. Designed to meet the demands of today’s modern storage challenges, this joint solution provides seamless content management across sites, tiers and clouds. It enables customers to utilize massively scalable object storage for media content while archiving to BlackPearl to achieve optimal cost and performance.

Using StorageGRID Webscale’s S3 end point connector, NetApp will be able to add Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway as an archive location for files, stored in StorageGRID as objects. StorageGRID successfully added, retrieved, listed, and deleted objects to the BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway.

“BlackPearl deep storage technology is a potential game changer in the storage industry by changing the economics of deep storage,” said Spectra Logic’s CTO, Matt Starr. “NetApp and Spectra both have a history of creative technological advancements and thought leadership, and we look forward to continuing to grow this relationship in the future.”

Spectra Logic BlackPearl enables users to archive assets through affordable deep storage, addressing exponential data growth and long-term archive requirements. BlackPearl writes data to tape using open standard LTFS, ensuring content integrity and availability.

BlackPearl Deep Storage Gateway works with NetApp StorageGRID Webscale to eliminate complexities, and offer a multi-site collaboration and long-term content archive. This is accomplished through the sophisticated StorageGRID Webscale policy engine that provides automated data placement across storage tiers. StorageGRID Webscale stores content via user defined policies to BlackPearl, which enables object storage directly to tape, providing private cloud infrastructure at an affordable price. Along with BlackPearl, StorageGRID Webscale also supports disk and flash on-premises as well as S3-compatible cloud storage, enabling customers to choose the optimal storage locations based on cost, performance, durability and availability requirements.

“Organizations are looking for flexibility when it comes to storing content across on-premises and public cloud. NetApp StorageGRID Webscale is a scalable and flexible data management solution that supports a variety of storage tiers across on-premises and cloud,” said NetApp’s Senior Manger Hybrid Cloud Solutions Ingo Fuchs. “Integration with BlackPearl will provide our customers additional on-premises solutions.”

Cyber security firm F-Secure launches Freedome for Business to help businesses secure BYOD and company-owned fleets of mobile devices.

HELSINKI, FINLAND – April 14, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today’s employees want to use whatever device they need to get the job done. This means many companies are embracing bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, but often at the expense of their own security. Freedome for Business, a new service launched by F-Secure, gives companies the best of both worlds by offering them a single service that meets the security needs of companies as well as the flexibility demands of employees.

Freedome for Business is a version of F-Secure’s Freedome app that’s been tailored to fit the needs of a modern, mobile business. It retains the consumer variant’s popular one-button interface, but adds a comprehensive set of business-oriented features to help companies protect their data and network security. The software integrates three different types of protection that are important for modern companies into a single, cloud-based security service: encrypted communications, app and web security, and mobile fleet management.

BYOD can now offer productivity and security
“The current trend in business mobility is to allow employees to use the devices they’re most comfortable with. It’s cheap for companies and efficient for employees”, says Pekka Usva, F-Secure Vice President, Corporate Security. “Trying to manage all of these different kinds of hardware and software poses unique security challenges, and offering these companies a security as a service solution for their growing mobile fleets is a tremendous opportunity for our service partners”.

Research from Gartner confirms that the BYOD trend is growing. The firm projects that 38% of businesses will stop providing employees with company-owned devices by 2016.* And a more recent survey highlights the potential security risks this carries, with nearly one in four BYOD users admitting their devices have had issues with their security**. Putting these figures together adds up to a potentially crippling gap in cyber security – one that former White House cyber security advisor Richard Clarke described as the “largest vulnerability” facing corporate America***.

According to Usva, these BYOD trends are indicative of how frustrating cyber security can be for employees. “Many businesses implement security solutions that employees find restrictive or confusing, so they cut-corners by simply using their personal devices. Freedome for Business takes the one-button interface that’s been a success with consumers and turns it into an effective security solution for companies. People can simply tap a button to activate the security software, and then get to work”.

One policy to rule them all
Companies implement Freedome for Business through F-Secure’s Protection Service for Business (PSB) suite. PSB is built on the same technology that’s won AV-TEST’s annual “Best Protection” award for the past 4 years, and Freedome for Business now extends this award-winning protection to cover mobile devices connecting to the company’s network. It lets employees encrypt their communications and secure their apps and web browsing with the tap of a button. But it also gives companies the ability to implement additional forms of security, such as anti-theft protection, to make sure any devices used for business stay secure.

“The anti-theft capabilities let IT managers do things like lock devices with randomly generated passcodes, or wipe data remotely. It’s a key feature because it protects companies against data breaches caused by lost or stolen devices”, says F-Secure Technical Product Manager Sebastian Neittamo. “IT managers can also see the security status of devices, so if they notice employees doing something dangerous like visiting an alarming number of malicious websites, they can take action to address the issue before it leads to a security incident”.

Neittamo says that allowing companies to manage devices from a central interface lets them monitor the mobile security of devices without imposing complicated restrictions on what employees can or cannot do while working. It also merges the personal devices of employees with the company’s overall approach to cyber security, effectively integrating PC or post-PC BYOD devices and company-owned devices into a single, secure fleet.

Freedome for Business currently supports Android and iOS devices, and is available now. You can find more information about Freedome for Business and PSB on F-Secure’s website.
