‘Egnyte for Life Sciences Quality’ Enables Collaboration and Digital Workflows in a GxP and FDA 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant Manner

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – June 15, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte the unified content security, compliance, and collaboration solution for multicloud businesses, today announced a new product for emerging life sciences companies to manage regulated documentation. Egnyte for Life Sciences Quality is an easy-to-use, GxP-compliant product that digitizes the lifecycle of regulated documents, like standard operating procedures (SOPs) and training records.

Egnyte for Life Sciences Quality is the third product in a growing lineup of offerings, following the release of Egnyte for Life Sciences in November 2020 and new review and approval workflows. This enables Quality personnel to streamline review and approval workflows, and automate the handling of effective documentation, while meeting FDA 21 CFR Part 11 requirements for e-signatures.

“Quality is a requirement for any Life Sciences company to be successful,” said Dr. Nimita Limaye, Research VP, Life Sciences R&D Strategy and Technology, IDC. “High-growth companies, like biotechs, medical device, and diagnostics companies, however, have difficulty scaling paper-based processes, meeting GxP guidelines, and collaborating with their outsourced partners. Cloud-based software solves this: easy-to-use products that automate workflows become a necessity to meet FDA and EMA regulations without sacrificing the speed of innovation.”

“This product launch is a demonstration of Egnyte’s commitment to serving the needs of life sciences companies that require enhanced collaboration, compliance, and data privacy,” said Alok Tayi, Ph.D., Vice President of Life Sciences at Egnyte. “Companies struggle with managing regulated documents in a compliant manner for three reasons: FDA requirements, training, and the cost of conventional systems. Our Quality solution meets all components of FDA 21 CFR Part 11, including validation, is easy to use to minimize user onboarding, and fits within budgets of start-up companies.”

Egnyte for Life Sciences Quality enables Life Sciences companies to:

  • Meet GxP & FDA 21 CFR Part 11: Egnyte’s product digitizes regulated documents and workflows within a compliant software platform reducing administrative burden and improving employee compliance.
  • Perform e-Signatures: sign off on documents, like SOPs and clinical trial protocols, in a compliant manner, without needing third-party plugins.
  • Manage effective documents: as new versions are approved, Quality teams can easily define version numbers for new drafts, set expiry dates, and ensure only effective copies are available.
  • Scale compliance processes quickly: built with best practices gleaned from 17,000 global customers, Egnyte for Life Sciences Quality is easy to use, implement, and validate, as it integrates seamlessly with existing IT infrastructure.
  • Support for multiple departments and use cases: designed with the ability to support training, continuity, and site readiness documentation.

Additional products are slated to be launched at Egnyte’s upcoming Life Sciences Virtual Summit on September 14, 2021.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – June 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup solutions enabling Cloud Data Management™, today announced that Staples Solutions, the leading provider of workplace products and services for 9 million customers throughout Europe, has replaced several legacy backup solutions with Veeam Availability Suite™ and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365. Veeam centralizes and simplifies data protection to support customer satisfaction and extends fast, easy on-premises backup and recovery to Office 365 data. Veeam also saves significant backup management time and licensing costs each year.

“You can’t beat Veeam for simple, reliable and affordable data protection,” said Aleh Sadaunichy, Infrastructure Solutions Architect at Staples Solutions. “Veeam protects our IT infrastructure so we can meet customers’ needs.”

Today’s workplace is nothing like the workplace of 10 years ago, and tomorrow’s workplace will be vastly different after COVID-19. This is a matter of course for Staples Solutions, which has helped customers adapt to changes in the workplace since 1991. To meet their needs, the company’s IT infrastructure must be available, but maintaining availability was time-consuming and costly after several backup solution (Acronis, Commvault, Symantec and Veeam) had been deployed across 25 branch offices.

“Our challenge was centralizing and simplifying data protection,” Sadaunichy said. “We needed a scalable, affordable solution that was hardware neutral so it could work in every branch. We also needed a solution that offered both backup and replication so we could protect the IT systems directly impacting customer satisfaction like our ERP and our two e-commerce engines (Intershop and Genesis). If one of the databases supporting these engines can’t be recovered, we might not meet customer satisfaction. We also wanted the ability to back up on-premises and to Azure Blob. Moreover, we didn’t want to lose access and control of data when we transitioned to Office 365. Microsoft tells you it doesn’t offer comprehensive backup, and accidental deletion is common among our users, so we have to be able to recover quickly and easily.”

Veeam backs up and replicates 600 TB across 1,500 virtual machines from HPE Nimble Storage Snapshots on-premises and to Azure Blob Storage. Veeam Cloud Tier, an automatic tiering feature of Scale-out Backup Repository™, offloads older backups to affordable cloud-based object storage such as Azure Blob, enabling Staple Solutions to achieve the 3-2-1-1-0 Rule (3 different backup copies on 2 different media with 1 copy offsite, 1 copy offline and 0 backup recovery errors, thanks to a Veeam feature called SureBackup®, which verifies recoverability). Veeam also backs up 50 TB of Office 365 data (including 2,700 mailboxes) on-premises for fast recovery.

“Veeam is the best solution for us,” Sadaunichy said. “It works in every branch because it’s hardware neutral, and Veeam licenses are portable so we can back up any workload across any environment. When we transitioned to Office 365, protecting it with Veeam was the next logical step because Microsoft’s native Office 365 capabilities don’t offer traditional, on-premises backup. Extending Veeam protection to Office 365 was a no-brainer.”

One of the capabilities the IT team likes best about Veeam is high-speed recovery. Instant VM Recovery® restores an entire VM in minutes, and Veeam Explorers™ for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Teams enable the team to recover granularly when users accidentally delete items. “Having this capability is critically important,” Sadaunichy said. “Office 365 data grew considerably during the pandemic when employees worked remotely, especially Teams’ data, so knowing recovery is just moments away is comforting.”

Sadaunichy said he and his colleagues are looking forward to additional Veeam functionality such as Continuous Data Protection (CDP), a hardened Linux repository for extra ransomware protection, expanded instant recovery for Oracle and SQL, and Azure archive, which could provide an additional cost savings. “We’re already saving money each year because Veeam is more affordable than legacy backup, especially with regard to licensing, so an additional savings with Azure archive is worth exploring,” he said.

Sadaunichy said Veeam also saves significant backup management time. “Veeam is very user friendly, so the learning curve is quite small. If you value simple, straightforward data protection, you should look at Veeam.”

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 15, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veritas Technologies, the global leader in enterprise data protection, today announced updates to its Enterprise Data Services Platform to extend ransomware protection to every part of the enterprise. Veritas’ flagship NetBackupTM solution now provides the most robust backup solution available on the market by delivering ransomware protection for containerized environments, immutability for Amazon S3, and integrated anomaly detection. Further enhancements include the launch of the NetBackup Flex 5350 appliance, which offers data immutability, doubles the performance of its closest competitor, and completes the upgraded Veritas family of ransomware-hardened data protection appliances.

Doug Matthews, VP of Product Management at Veritas, said: “With the increase in ransomware attacks targeting mission critical infrastructure like oil & gas, healthcare, telecommunications and beef & dairy, our newest NetBackup release represents a significant advancement in Veritas’ leadership of backup and recovery solutions by further protecting customers against increasingly prevalent ransomware attacks, irrespective of where their data resides: cloud, containers or on-premises.”

NetBackup delivers more resiliency against ransomware

  • Integrated AI/ML anomaly detection: Veritas is folding Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning-driven anomaly detection into NetBackup as an inclusive feature to alert backup admins of potential issues and ensure data is always recoverable.
  • New ransomware-hardened appliance: Veritas’ new NetBackup Flex release delivers the industry’s best ransomware protection, from the edge of the enterprise network to the core data center, and now includes the most complete family of hardened data protection appliances on the market today. The new Flex 5350 appliance, with 300% improved backup performance, delivers 40% lower total cost of ownership, twice the performance and twice the capacity of its closest competitor, making it the solution of choice for consolidating the most demanding core data center workloads.
  • CDP and NetBackup Instant Rollback for VMware: Veritas is now offering Continuous Data Protection and Instant Rollback capabilities enabling VMware users to quickly recover from ransomware and other events in minutes instead of hours.
  • Multiple service level objectives: Starting with VMware but eventually expanding to any application, NetBackup now allows organizations to improve resilience from ransomware and other unplanned data loss events by defining and automatically executing multiple service level objectives, including the recovery technique (e.g., recover from backup, recovery from replication, etc.) and data, for each application.
  • Immutable storage on Amazon S3: Veritas is extending Write Once Read Many (WORM) storage to AWS S3 cloud environments, enabling businesses to meet the most stringent compliance requirements while offering complete protection against ransomware.

NetBackup introduces fully integrated native protection for Kubernetes environments

  • Complete Kubernetes protection: NetBackup provides native protection across multiple Kubernetes distributions and layers including clusters, namespaces, custom resources and persistent volumes to ensure complete protection and flexible recovery options. Today, Veritas protects against ransomware from edge to core to cloud – and from traditional to virtualized to containerized environments.
  • Unparalleled breadth of Kubernetes integration: NetBackup has an agnostic approach to container protection allowing users to quickly add support for multiple Kubernetes distributions in the future. Today, NetBackup supports Red Hat OpenShift, VMware Tanzu and Google Kubernetes Engine, with support for additional Kubernetes platform distributions to follow. No other provider is able to offer this breadth of support or extensive level of integration and data protection for Kubernetes.

Alessio Carmazzi, Senior Cloud Architect at Sorint.lab said “We are implementing Kubernetes more and more frequently with our customers. The new features of NetBackup makes protecting Kubernetes application data as simple as any other task, providing high-level protection to on prem and cloud workloads.”

Pat Lee, VP Strategic & Emerging ISVs at VMware, said: “VMware is helping enterprises use containers and Kubernetes in production—working to simplify access to and adoption of these technologies through the VMware Tanzu portfolio. To move with confidence, these enterprises need to enable data protection across their Kubernetes footprint. For that reason, we’re excited to see Veritas’ support of VMware Tanzu as part of the NetBackup platform.”

NetBackup enhances ransomware protection in the cloud

  • Cloud resource autoscaling: Veritas NetBackup delivers cost-effective ransomware resilience in the cloud by automatically provisioning/de-provisioning cloud resources as needed, ensuring backups do not fail due to insufficient resources, while managing costs.
  • Cloud-based intelligent policies: NetBackup empowers businesses to simplify operations in the cloud while ensuring protection from ransomware and other unplanned data loss events by defining policies that automatically protect new workloads as they come online -avoiding data protection gaps.
  • Faster and more secure data to the cloud: Enhancements to the NetBackup transport security layer makes data movement to the cloud 20% faster while new cryptographic encryption across all data transports including replication, backup and recovery and deduplication improves security and reduces vulnerabilities from attacks.

Krista Macomber, Senior Analyst at Evaluator Group said: “If containers aren’t already a reality, they are coming down the pike for enterprises. More than one-third of respondents in our upcoming Hybrid Cloud Study said that their organization intends to use a mixture of container and more traditional environments, such as virtual machines, for the foreseeable future. For enterprise IT, this creates a complicated, heterogeneous environment that needs to be protected. This complexity can lead to poor data practices, where information is mismanaged or overlooked, and winds up unprotected. We hear from customers that being able to oversee, protect and manage all environments from a single platform would greatly reduce their risk of data loss.”

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse becomes the first hospital in the world to implement BridgeHead’s RAPid™ Data Protection solution running in the AWS Public Cloud

ASHTEAD, UK – June 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — BridgeHead Software, a leader in healthcare data management, today announces that it has successfully deployed its RAPid™ Data Protection solution at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse cancer hospital in Sydney, Australia. A world first, BridgeHead’s RAPid Data Protection product has been implemented within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Cloud to offer a backup and recovery solution for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse’s newly deployed MEDITECH Expanse electronic healthcare record (EHR), also believed to be the first of its kind to run in the AWS Cloud.

Chris O’Brien Lifehouse – Culture Of Innovation And ‘Cloud First’ Strategy
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse is a not-for-profit, comprehensive cancer hospital in Camperdown, Sydney. The hospital, which serves the wider New South Wales population, has fostered a culture of innovation since its inception in 2013, in its bid to offer patient-centred, multi-disciplinary and holistic cancer care for both public and private patients.

The project with BridgeHead was borne out of Chris O’Brien Lifehouse’s digital transformation program, where it has enacted a ‘Cloud First’ policy. The hospital has increasingly moved more of its technology to the Cloud in order to enjoy the flexibility and scalability that the Cloud delivers, e.g. the speed and ease by which it can upgrade or downgrade all manner of technical services on-demand. Chris O’Brien Lifehouse also firmly believes its real estate is best used for its patients as opposed to taking up valuable space on computer rooms filled with hardware, which then have to be maintained and supported.

As part of its vision and drive for innovation, Chris O’Brien Lifehouse selected MEDITECH Expanse as its EHR solution, but with one significant provision – that it be fully enabled to run on the AWS Public Cloud (believed to be the first of its kind anywhere in the world). Furthermore, another key objective for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse was the ability to not only fully back up and recover the MEDITECH Expanse application on AWS, but that the data protection solution would need to do this efficiently and effectively while also running in the AWS Cloud, also believed to be a world first.

As Peter Singer, Director of Information Technology at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse explains, “We had a very clear vision of what we wanted. Our digital transformation journey to the Public Cloud is not a ‘nice to have’, it’s an imperative. The real question was: could BridgeHead rise to the challenge we’d laid out?”

BridgeHead Sets Its Sights On Protecting MEDITECH In The AWS Public Cloud
BridgeHead’s RAPid Data Protection product continues to maintain its position as the market leading backup and recovery solution for MEDITECH environments, supported by a team of industry experts with extensive knowledge and experience stemming from the company’s long-standing relationship with MEDITECH, now spanning over 20 years. However, though BridgeHead comes with an established pedigree this, in isolation, would not be enough to satisfy the requirements of the project. What was needed was a commitment to build and deploy a data protection solution that could work in unison with Chris O’Brien Lifehouse’s instance of MEDITECH Expanse, with both hosted, highly available, and running in the AWS Public Cloud.

The comprehensive cancer hospital initially engaged with BridgeHead 2 years ago at the MEDITECH Physicians and CIO Forum in Boston, USA. After many talks, BridgeHead was eventually selected by the hospital as the vendor of choice due to its willingness to collaborate and adapt the RAPid Data Protection solution to work efficiently in the AWS Cloud.

As Gareth Griffiths, Executive Director and RAPid Product Manager explained, “We have a history of leading the way when it comes to safeguarding MEDITECH systems. We have consistently been the first vendor to offer support for new MEDITECH certified SAN arrays. Clearly, we relish a challenge; and the project with Chris O’Brien Lifehouse was certainly going to be one! The key to success was not simply to provide a backup and recovery solution that could run on AWS… that is a given. The real mission was to do that without degradation in system performance and whilst remaining cost effective. This was not a trivial task – not solely due to the technical complexity, but because it had never been done before. Together, with the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse team, we needed to pioneer a new solution that could deliver on their vision.”

Over the life of the project, the BridgeHead team was able to iterate and adapt its RAPid solution to perform consistent backups, in a timely manner, across the MEDITECH Server estate hosted in the AWS Cloud. To do so, BridgeHead had to leverage the available Cloud technology, utilise the appropriate deduplication methods, and all within a clustered environment so as to eliminate the need for downtime or restarting systems.

As the number of backups built up, the team quickly realised that the Cloud Storage costs were also on the rise which is when a deduplication solution was recommended. The Chris O’Brien Lifehouse team identified QoreStor from Quest as their preferred solution – an organization BridgeHead already had a long relationship with. Working together the teams soon demonstrated how a de-duplication appliance in the cloud significantly reduces the Cloud Storage costs for backups while maintaining a fast restore capability.

Mr Singer comments, “We all worked really well together as a project team. Once our MEDITECH Expanse solution went live in November 2020, we needed to assess whether BridgeHead’s RAPid™ was working optimally in the AWS Cloud to ensure we were efficiently backing up our EHR data. We have since undertaken extensive testing to check this is the case. Most importantly, we recently carried out a full MEDITECH restore using RAPid and it passed with flying colours. One always hopes you are never placed in a position where you have to restore a critical healthcare system. But, at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, we are now safe in the knowledge that, should we need to, we can quickly restore our MEDITECH Expanse system thanks to BridgeHead. Having that peace of mind more than pays for the investment. I’d like to thank everyone at BridgeHead, MEDITECH and Chris O’Brien Lifehouse who contributed to this significant project.”

BridgeHead’s RAPid – A Blueprint For Protecting MEDITECH In The Cloud
By committing to this project, and the subsequent investment by BridgeHead in the development of RAPid, the company has clearly identified and understood the increasing trend by hospitals to move towards the Cloud. In doing so, BridgeHead has not only developed a new solution that can protect Cloud-hosted MEDITECH Expanse systems running on AWS, but it now plans to use the techniques it has learned to do the same for other Public Cloud environments, such as Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure as well as Private Cloud.

Mr Singer adds, “At Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, we do march to the beat of our own drum. Innovation is really important to us and a key ingredient to our success and also essential in our technology partnerships. I believe we are the first hospital to go live with MEDITECH Expanse in an AWS environment worldwide. Furthermore, we are also the first healthcare organisation to deploy BridgeHead’s RAPid™ for MEDITECH on AWS. So, this project has delivered many ‘firsts’. Not only is RAPid now working very well for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse, I do believe it will be really beneficial for other customers who need to protect MEDITECH Expanse in a Cloud environment.”

Jim Beagle, President and CEO, BridgeHead Software, “This project really has been a collaboration in the truest sense. Chris O’Brien Lifehouse had a vision for what it wanted to achieve by deploying MEDITECH Expanse in the AWS Cloud; and we’re delighted they chose BridgeHead’s RAPid™ Data Protection as part of that solution. As this was new territory for both organisations, we’ve worked very closely together to ensure the solution fully delivers against that vision. I really am very proud of our collective achievements in this project.”

Independent Research Reveals Vulnerability in Many Organizations’ Ransomware Strategies

EDEN PRAIRIE, Min. – June 10, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — In response to the recent Biden Administration Executive Order to improve the nation’s cybersecurity and subsequent White House memo by Anne Neuberger, Deputy National Security Advisor, Arcserve, the world’s most experienced data, and ransomware protection provider, today shared findings of its independent research into experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers around data protection. The research exposes weaknesses in many organizations’ ransomware strategies that could hamper their ability to recover from an attack. These weaknesses comprise a lack of leadership engagement in data recovery strategies, weak enterprise-wide data protection measures, incomplete data recovery plans, and an absence of data recovery testing.

Research findings highlight the need for:

  • Greater involvement of business leaders in assessing data recovery capability. Only 8% of respondents said their CEO track metrics to ensure a robust data recovery plan. In comparison, 58% of CEOs only seek basic assurances that a data recovery plan is in place but do not request details.
  • Enhanced data recovery technologies. Over a third of respondents reported a data outage in the past twelve months, and over half were unable to recover all their data.
  • Holistic data recovery plans. 27% of respondents reported that remote and branch offices (ROBO) are not included in data recovery plans.
  • Battle test data recovery. Nearly a quarter (23%) of respondents do not test data recovery plans.

Said Tom Signorello, CEO at Arcserve: “We wholeheartedly applaud the White House initiative to improve the nation’s cybersecurity, and in encouraging private enterprise to take more proactive steps to protect themselves from cyber-attacks better. While awareness of the devastation caused by ransomware has grown due to recent attacks on critical infrastructure and the nation’s energy and food supply, many organization’s cybersecurity postures are not as robust as they should be. Protection of data from ransomware needs to be a top agenda item for executives across America. Organizations of all sizes urgently need to develop, evaluate and implement robust data protection plans.”

Arcserve advises organizations to step up their ransomware preparedness by assessing and testing their prevention and remediation processes. These steps are in direct alignment with the White House advice that business executives review their corporate security posture and business continuity plans to ensure the ability to continue or quickly restore operations.

Prevention – ensure critical systems and data are backed up using immutable backup technology. Continuous, immutable snapshots of data cannot be overwritten or deleted by ransomware attackers. In the event of a ransomware attack, immutable snapshots keep data protected and are completely immune to any modification or deletion.

Remediation – while immutable snapshots ensure an organization can recover from an attack, the recovery speed is critical. Organizations need to evaluate and ensure they have a well-defined, rapid, and orchestrated recovery plan in place. This includes data throughout the infrastructure, not only in the data center. The ability to restore data from the known recovery point that was not impacted allows an organization to return to normal operations in minutes without paying a ransom or losing data.

When implemented correctly and tested regularly, these straightforward steps can reliably protect data and thwart ransomware attacks for companies of all sizes and at a wide range of price points.

Arcserve provides the industry’s broadest range of best-in-class data management, protection, and recovery offerings for on-prem, off-prem, hyper-converged, cloud and edge data infrastructures. By leveraging Arcserve technologies — such as data protection, Backup as a Service (BaaS), Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), continuous data availability and immutable storage snapshots, — organizations, regardless of their data size, complexity or location, have access to the most advanced, proactive, and multi-layered strategies to neutralize ransomware attacks, mitigate risk in the event of a cyberattack, and eliminate downtime relating to data recovery.

About the research: Dimensional Research conducted research with a total of 709 qualified respondents. All respondents had budget or technical decision-making responsibility for data management, data protection, and storage solutions at a company with 100 – 2,500 employees. The survey was fielded in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, and the United States.

Druva helps Northeast England’s largest social landlord and developer strengthen business continuity and cyber resiliency

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – June 10, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Druva Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced that Thirteen, Northeast England’s largest social landlord and developer, has selected Druva to protect its business-critical Microsoft 365 data for more than 1,600 employees. Faced with growing security concerns and a desire to minimize downtime in the event of a platform disruption, Thirteen can now ensure its Microsoft 365 data is secure, accessible, and can easily be restored.

As a landlord and housing developer of 34,000 properties, Thirteen provides quality homes and support for more than 70,000 individuals in need of housing. The company began its cloud journey four years ago after adopting Microsoft 365 to strengthen collaboration and closely manage compliance of business-critical and government-mandated data. However, Microsoft’s native data recovery features, which holds files for up to 90 days, failed to meet the company’s data storage requirements and put it at risk of irrecoverable data loss. Facing an increasing number of sophisticated threats, the IT team turned to Druva to keep their business resilient and agile. The Druva Cloud Platform ensures the company’s business-critical Microsoft 365 data is secure and recoverable, with stringent SLAs, and compliant with data regulations and governance requirements.

“There are a lot of systems we could do without,” said Hassan Bahrani, Head of IT, Thirteen. “But not Microsoft 365. It’s at the heart of our business, and Druva ensures that data is secure so our company can continue serving our customers. We will likely experience a ransomware attack, and how we recover is going to be testament to our character and the controls we now have in place.”

Following an extensive search for a cloud-native data protection solution, Druva’s innovative approach was apparent during the proof-of-concept. Druva Cloud Platform’s air-gapped architecture on AWS, native integration with Microsoft products, including Teams and OneDrive, compliance capabilities, and robust ransomware protection offered the company a single solution that fit all of its needs. Using Druva, Thirteen is able to recognize ransomware attacks quickly and recover damaged or deleted files 95 percent faster.

“In light of increasing cyber threats and evolving privacy regulations, organizations are navigating an IT landscape that has never been more complex,” said Nick Turner, Vice President of Sales EMEA, Druva. “Druva has built a solution that delivers immediate value and empowers businesses to thrive in the cloud era. Thirteen can now take control of their data and put more resources back into supporting their customers.”

Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s new advance pack, powered by Perception Point, blocks email-borne threats from reaching client inboxes

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – June 10, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today released a new advanced protection pack for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. Powered by the industry-leading solution from Perception Point, the new Advanced Email Security pack enables service providers to enhance and extend their cybersecurity capabilities by detecting and stopping all email-borne cyberthreats before they can reach their clients’ end users.

The native integration of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Email Security means MSPs can use one solution to extend their cyber protection services to protect their clients’ Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Open-Xchange mailboxes, or on-premises mail server. Advanced Email Security intercepts all email-based threats, including spam, phishing and spoofing, business email compromises (BECs), advanced persistent threats (APTs), and even the zero-day malware attacks that are behind 80% of breaches [1].

“Email is both business-critical and the top threat vector for organizations today. For service providers, preventing email threats from reaching their clients is vital,” said Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor & Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis. “The new Advanced Email Security pack marries the best-in-class technology from Perception Point with the unified cybersecurity, data protection, and endpoint protection of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud. As a result, MSPs have everything needed to keep clients secure and their business efficient and profitable.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Acronis to power the leading Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud solution, with Perception Point, integrated as the Advanced Email Security pack,” said Yoram Salinger, CEO of Perception Point. “Together we are making enterprise-grade cybersecurity solutions available to all MSPs and their end-customers. Acronis’ and Perception Point’s approach helps us realize our vision of combining the best technology with personalized services, to protect customers from the broad range of constantly evolving threats.”

Proven email security
While legacy sandboxing technologies assess threats reactively, which limits how much traffic can be scanned and delays malware verdicts by up to 20 minutes, the technology in Advanced Email Security scales to cover 100% of the email traffic and shortens that scanning time to a maximum of 30 seconds.

As a result, Advanced Email Security enables MSPs to automatically:

  • Stop phishing and spoofing attempts by leveraging powerful threat intelligence, heuristics, URL reputation checks, unique computer vision algorithms, and machine-intelligence-enhanced Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC), DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) record checks.
  • Detect advanced evasion techniques used to hide malicious content. To do this, the solution recursively unpacks embedded files and URLs, and separately analyzes them with dynamic and static detection engines.
  • Prevent malware and email threats that evade conventional defenses such as advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks. By leveraging Perception Point’s unique CPU-level technology, it acts earlier in the attack chain to block exploits before the malware is released and delivers a clear verdict within seconds.

Unlike other email security solutions, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud with Advanced Email Security also stops threats delivered via internal email addresses, preventing malware from spreading laterally throughout an organization.

Advanced Email Security is the latest advanced protection pack released for Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, which enables MSPs to build services at little to no upfront expense, ensuring 100% coverage of clients’ workloads with cyber protection.

Additional advanced protection packs such as Advanced Backup, Advanced Security, Advanced Disaster Recovery, and Advanced Management give MSPs the flexibility to expand and customize their services to deliver the optimum level of cyber protection for each client and every workload.

Partners and analysts respond to the new solution pack
“Bluefin trusts Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud because we’ve seen how it’s enabled us to provide a comprehensive range of cyber protection services to our clients – and Advanced Email Security is an exciting, welcome addition,” said Dawn Wilson, Chief Executive Officer of Bluefin Technology Group. “With data breaches that are happening daily, we’re expected to keep our clients’ email inboxes safe and protected. This addition makes it easy for us to enhance our services with email security that is proven without having to add a whole new vendor and set-up.”

According to Simon Edwards, CEO of SE Labs, the Advanced Email Security pack gives MSPs a single, multi-layered email security solution that detects threats more quickly and more precisely than other options. Perception Point received top overall ranking in SE Labs Independent testing, ranking #1 in detection rate, false-positive rate, and overall accuracy rating.

“This extremely challenging test puts email services through a very rigorous assessment and it is to Perception Point’s credit that it achieved first place and the highest AAA award,” said Edwards.

According to Gartner, “As organizations continue to migrate to cloud email, the need to reevaluate email security is even greater. The solutions and controls that were put in place for on-premises email solutions are no longer enough.” Further, Gartner states, “Integrated email security solutions (IESSs) provide many of the capabilities in an SEG such as advanced malware protection, sandbox analysis and URL analysis, intercepting malicious emails before they reach a user’s inbox.” Perception Point was recognized as a Representative Vendor for IESS in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Email Security report.

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

WASHINGTON, DC – June 10, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — SpiderOak announces the release of CrossClave, a Zero-Trust collaboration solution for companies that require the highest level of security for their most valuable and confidential business communications.

CrossClave is a security force multiplier in an industry dominated by insecure file share and collaboration products. Designed for organizations that cannot always verify the security of the networks over which they transmit data, CrossClave utilizes a unique combination of no-knowledge encryption and blockchain distributed-ledger technology to reach new levels of confidentiality and integrity in information sharing and collaboration.

An evolution beyond SpiderOak’s legacy secure backup tools, CrossClave competes with the likes of Dropbox and Slack, with a laser focus on security and ease of use. Although very similar to Signal’s secure messaging application, CrossClave is designed specifically to meet the large-scale requirements of business and enterprise users.

CrossClave’s utilization of blockchain/distributed ledger represents the first viable expansion of the technology’s use case into the realm of security. This capability allows CrossClave to address the data integrity and nonrepudiation of all data transactions and modifications. Anytime a user makes any modification to any information stored on the system, it is logged to the ledger, timestamped, and signed, digitally ensuring traceability and attribution to the point or origin and significantly reducing the risk and potential blast radius of insider threats.

Combined with the product’s use of end-to-end no-knowledge encryption, this security arrangement means only authorized team members can access and view files. CrossClave by default has Zero-Trust in anything and everything until authorization is granted. Other external parties – threat actors, unauthorized insiders, and even SpiderOak employees – have no ability to decrypt and read files. These capabilities are delivered across desktop and mobile devices in a user-friendly, feature-rich communication and collaboration environment, making CrossClave completely unique in the industry.

CrossClave features:

  • Best-in-class security: End-to-end encryption and private blockchain technology keep your data safe.
  • Cross-platform file sharing, syncing, and collaborating with team members in a frictionless way across different operating systems.
  • Unlimited version control automatically retains every version of every file.
  • Centralized team management controls file deletion, folder creation, and user privileges.
  • Selective sharing of CrossClave files with your entire team, a select group, or an individual.
  • Full mobile functionality: download, view, and upload files from your mobile device for complete continuity.
  • Cloud or On-Prem: CrossClave is available for your preferred environment.

“In developing CrossClave we relied heavily on the SpiderOak install base, feedback from thousands of SpiderOak users and the CrossClave Early Adopter program. This knowledge helped us identify key security and business requirements overlooked by current competitive offerings and now addressed by CrossClave,” said SpiderOak’s CEO David Pearah. “We are thrilled by the results and early signs indicate the market is as well.”

Lieutenant General Robert Walsh, USMC (ret.) added, “With recent high profile cyber-attacks disrupting U.S. supply chains, the pressure is on both private and public-sector organizations to adopt Zero-Trust technologies to make life harder for attackers while maintaining close collaboration for users. CrossClave represents a fast, easy, and effective first step in achieving these goals.”

Matthew Erickson, SpiderOak’s Vice President, Solutions, said, “We’ve had some very sophisticated red teams try to penetrate and compromise CrossClave and fail. For organizations that need to protect their data and ability to communicate, or comply with emerging federal requirements, this is the system to use.”

Enhanced programs provide MSPs and Aggregators with innovative Intelligent Data Services; dedicated, partner-focused support; a modern, profitable, and predictable program tailored for partner success

Tinton Falls, N.J. – June 9, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise software leader in the management of data across cloud and on-premises environments, today announced enhanced Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Aggregator Partner Advantage Programs, tailored and refined to support the way Commvault’s MSP and Aggregator partners operate while fulfilling their unique needs for delivering “Commvault Powered” Intelligent Data Services to customers of all sizes around the world.

With a fundamental shift in the IT landscape, organizations are increasingly looking toward managed service providers for consumption-based solutions that span the entire IT stack and  are cost-effective, scalable, and easy to consume. Seeing this as a fast-growing and clear market direction, Commvault has further evolved its industry-leading Partner Advantage Program to now offer MSPs and Aggregators the critical elements they seek to be successful – multiple ways to partner and earn incentives that drive profitability, deep ecosystem relationships centered around joint selling, and tools like in-region support, expansive training, and marketing resources to drive partner growth and win more deals.

“One of Commvault’s main objectives is to always provide our partners with Intelligent Data Services that help organizations protect and manage data and applications in an increasingly hybrid and multi-cloud world,” said John Tavares, Vice President, Global Channels and Alliances. “The enhancements to our MSP and Aggregator programs help our partners achieve these goals, meet challenges head-on, and future-proof their business. Our solutions are industry-leading and we provide the tools, benefits, experience, and support that enable partners to help their customers safely protect and manage their data in any environment – on-prem, cloud, or SaaS.”

Centered around Commvault’s four key pillars for a winning partnership, the MSP Partner Advantage Program offers a range of benefits that allow partners to easily build on existing services and create new ones for their customers. The simple, modern program offers two tiers with clearly identified tier promotional requirements and incentives, rewarding partners for driving consumption. MSP partners are also provided with flexible licensing and consumption options that include both subscription and utility agreements to align with customer demand. With partner success as a key foundation, Commvault offers free training resources and curriculums designed to build competency, helping both MSPs and Aggregators operate and grow their “Commvault Powered” practice.

In addition, Commvault plans to add Metallic for MSPs to its Partner Advantage Program later this year, enabling its MSP partners to broaden their service catalogs and grow their business with the agility of SaaS.

Commvault’s MSP partners see the value in partnering with Commvault:

  • Tim deLisle, President, Meridian IT said, “Working with an industry leader like Commvault has benefitted our customers dramatically, providing us with the tools and resources to maximize the Commvault portfolio of Intelligent Data Services and helping our customers solve their very real data management challenges. Whether its on-prem or in the cloud, together with Commvault, we can close the Business Integrity Gap for our customers with solutions that store, protect, and optimize their data.”

With the help of our proprietary technologies and the broad functionality of Commvault solutions, our clients receive the best data protection, as well as reliability and flexibility for their business.”
  • Thierry Moreaud, Commercial Director, Syage commented, “Commvault’s portfolio offers unique coverage in the market and is based on a reliable and flexible architecture.

The New SaaS Offering is Available Now for European Organisations, With Disaster Recovery as a Service Arriving this Summer

LONDON, ON – June 08, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity today announced the launch of its Backup as a Service (BaaS) offering, DataProtect delivered as a Service, to customers in Europe.

Hosted on Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) in Europe,1 the offering gives enterprise and mid-size customers another radically simple way to back up data, eliminate silos, and drive down capital expenditure costs, while Cohesity takes care of managing the underlying infrastructure.

Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service includes support for an array of workloads including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances and compute infrastructure, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS),2 Microsoft 365 SaaS applications, and data sources such as VMware, Network Attached Storage (NAS), and SQL Server.

Thousands of customers globally already rely on Cohesity DataProtect to back up their data on-premises or in cloud environments that they manage directly. Now, they have even more choice in how to consume the value Cohesity provides with this SaaS-based solution, all of which can easily be managed through one user interface on the Cohesity Helios multicloud platform.

“We are thrilled about this new offering because it gives European customers even greater choice in how to manage their data, but with all of the hallmarks of Cohesity’s multicloud data management platform they already know and trust,” said Richard Gadd, vice president, EMEA sales, Cohesity. “Not only does the expansion of our SaaS offering to Europe empower customers to further simplify data management, but also gives our European partners the opportunity to add their unique value and resell the solution through our distribution channels or via AWS Marketplace.”

Data Management as a Service: A New Chapter in Comprehensive Data Management
DataProtect delivered as a Service is the first offering from Cohesity’s comprehensive Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) portfolio. DMaaS is a portfolio of ‘as a service’ offerings designed to provide customers with a radically simple way to back up, secure, govern, and analyze their data, all managed directly by Cohesity and hosted on AWS—Cohesity’s preferred cloud provider for DMaaS.

In addition to announcing the availability of Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service in Europe today, Cohesity announced the imminent arrival of its second SaaS offering in its DMaaS portfolio, Cohesity SiteContinuity, which will enable automated disaster recovery of mission-critical applications and data to the cloud. This Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solution is designed to help enterprises reduce infrastructure costs substantially by utilising on-demand cloud resources from AWS instead of requiring a costly secondary data centre.

Cohesity’s portfolio of DMaaS offerings gives organisations even more choice in how they can protect and manage their data. With Cohesity, customers can choose from a SaaS model, on-premises Cohesity cluster, or a combination of both in a hybrid model – all on a single platform and managed with a single UI.

Customers can subscribe to DMaaS offerings through authorised Cohesity channel partners, distributors, and via AWS Marketplace. DMaaS not only gives partners the opportunity to grow their recurring revenue business, but it also allows them to expand their existing managed service offerings without having to build out infrastructure themselves. They can also use this as an entry point if they are thinking about starting a managed service practice.

With Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service, customers can also:

  • Reduce complexity with BaaS that is built for the hybrid cloud, freeing up cycles to focus on other critical tasks with a single backup service for on-premises and cloud data sources and a single UI to manage it all.
  • Reduce backup setup to minutes by automatically discovering workloads once a secure connection is established and applying either preset or custom policies to begin protection.
  • Ensure efficient use of available bandwidth, accelerating backups to the cloud and data recovery from the cloud by only transmitting data blocks that have been changed.
  • Improve their data security posture by keeping a snapshot in an alternate location with flexible encryption key management and the ability to separate and isolate data for legal and compliance purposes.

Supporting Partner Quotes:

  • We’re really excited to work with Cohesity to bring its Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) to France,” said Sebastien Hurst, chief technology officer at SCC. “Customers are really struggling to manage their constantly-growing data, on-premises and in the clouds. They are looking for new ways of thinking to keep innovation running. We are committed to bringing new innovative and elegant solutions to help our customers overachieve their goal, and we strongly believe that everything is aligned to get a real value back from the use of such a refined service.”
  • “SVA is pleased to collaborate with Cohesity to bring its Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) to Germany by leveraging the AWS Europe (Frankfurt) Region,” said Michael Todt, head of business continuity at SVA. “Our commercial and enterprise customers continue to grow their data exponentially each year, and we are committed to helping them find new technologies. We do this not just by managing and protecting that data, but also by staying up to date on the latest innovations, so they can stay one step ahead of others in their markets. As a result, our customers can provide better IT scalability and resiliency, have smoother operations, and save further costs.”
  • “Conscia has an important relationship with AWS and Cohesity helping customers with hybrid cloud deployments,” said Henrik Moll, chief technology officer at Conscia. “We help our customers protect cloud-native data and/or manage traditional data centre workloads in a modern way – as easy as – sign up, connect, and protect with DMaaS. Conscia is excited to be a launch partner in EMEA for Cohesity DMaaS on AWS as this aligns very well with our vision to bring data management as a service to European enterprises.”

SAN MATEO, Calif., June 8, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian® today announced that its HyperStore® object storage platform has achieved AWS Outposts Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Service Ready Program. As a result, AWS Outposts customers can now employ on-premises, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3)-compatible storage to serve use cases that demand data residency and low-latency data access in sectors such as financial services, healthcare, media and entertainment, telecommunications and government. Deployed alongside AWS Outposts in a data center, Cloudian gives customers exabyte-scalable storage to support modern applications.

HyperStore delivers native Amazon S3 API compatibility, cloud-like flexibility and geo-distribution that enables customers to manage data globally across multiple sites within a single namespace.

Other HyperStore benefits include:

  • Modular scalability: Allows users to start with three low-cost nodes and expand to exabytes without interruption simply by adding devices to the cluster.
  • Data residency: All data is stored locally, ensuring compliance with data governance regulations.
  • Low latency: Local data access from Cloudian’s all-flash or HDD-based storage appliances delivers optimized performance.
  • Data immutability for ransomware protection and compliance: Amazon S3 Object Lock feature prevents malware from encrypting data—enabling quick, easy recovery of an unencrypted backup copy without paying ransom—and also serves governance and legal hold demands.
  • Robust security: Includes secure shell, integrated firewall, RBAC/IAM access controls, AES-256 server-side encryption for data at rest and SSL for data in transit, as well as certification with U.S. Department of Defense, SEC Rule 17a-4(f), FINRA Rule 4511, and CFTC Rule 1.31(c)-(d) security requirements.
  • Hybrid cloud-readiness: Supports replication and policy-based data tiering to Amazon S3.
  • Advanced metadata tagging: Facilitates rapid data search and AI/ML/analytics applications.

For the second year in a row, HyperStore was recently recognized as a Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Distributed File Systems and Object Storage.* In addition, HyperStore received the highest rankings across all use cases in Gartner’s 2020 Critical Capabilities for Object Storage.

“We’ve been a Cloudian customer for many years, using its Amazon S3-compatible storage platform to manage and protect video data and digital evidence on-premises while taking advantage of its seamless integration with Amazon S3 to move data between the two environments,” said Adrian Quintela, information technology director at the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office.

“AWS Outposts brings AWS hardware, services, APIs, and tools to customers’ data centers, addressing the need for better ways to store and manage data across the enterprise,” said Joshua Burgin, general manager, AWS Outposts, AWS. “With Cloudian’s HyperStore solution—already deployed at leading organizations around the world—we’re expanding the workloads AWS Outposts serves by enabling on-prem, S3-compatible storage that meets data residency and latency requirements.”

“Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage was architected from Day 1 to allow customers to experience the efficiency of a private cloud storage infrastructure within their own data centers,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “We’re excited about working with AWS to give AWS Outposts users answers to their data residency, latency and scalability requirements with a simple, proven solution. As a result, customers will be better positioned to bring more modern applications on-premises to drive greater business and operational success.”

AWS Outposts is a fully managed service that extends AWS infrastructure, AWS services, APIs, and tools to virtually any data center, co-location space, or on-premises facility for a truly consistent hybrid experience. Achieving the AWS Outposts Ready designation differentiates Cloudian as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product fully tested on AWS Outposts.

  • CRN’s annual list recognizes the unique strengths, vision, and achievements of female leaders in the IT channel
  • Honorees from StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, are Olivia Donnell and Jeannine Edwards, both for the third year in a row
  • Edwards also included on CRN’s Power 100 List

DRAPER, UT – June 8, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — StorageCraft, an Arcserve Company, whose mission is to protect all data and ensure its constant availability, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Olivia Donnell, EMEA sales director, and Jeannine Edwards, senior director of channel marketing, to the highly respected Women of the Channel list for 2021.

The women honored on this year’s Women of the Channel list pushed forward with comprehensive business plans, marketing initiatives, and other innovative ideas to support their partners and customers, helping them through the uncertainty brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. CRN celebrates these exceptional women for their leadership, dedication, and channel advocacy.

CRN named Edwards to its 2021 Power 100 list, a distinguished subset of elite leaders chosen from the annual CRN Women of the Channel list. The CRN editorial team chose Power 100 honorees based on their contributions, expertise, and dedication to supporting IT channel success. The annual Power 100 award recognizes a select group of incredible women who have gone above and beyond, inspiring their peers through their leadership and unwavering commitment to the success of their partners, customers, and the entire IT channel.

During the pandemic, Edwards saw the shift to a remote and distributed workforce as an opportunity for partners to differentiate themselves in the business continuity category with remotely configurable data protection technology. She and her team created a business resiliency education and deployment strategy to empower partners to do precisely that with StorageCraft OneXafe® Solo. This data protection device can be shipped directly to their SMB customers’ locations, turned on, connected to the internet, and remotely configured to protect data within minutes. As a result, partners had the right technology available to best serve their customers’ data protection needs during an exceptionally challenging year.

In 2020, Donnell was promoted to oversee the entire EMEA sales team. During the pandemic, her primary role was to ensure her team members were safe and quickly established in a work-from-home routine that met their needs and the company’s. Being comfortably situated, her team could then focus on partners, ensuring rapid response to their changing needs. Under Donnell’s leadership, EMEA business grew, and partner training and certifications were four times what they were the prior year.

Cloud-first vSIRIS software brings software-only deployment flexibility to turn-key business continuity and disaster recovery

NORWALK, Conn. – June 7, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Datto Holding Corp. (“Datto”) (NYSE: MSP), the leading global provider of cloud-based software and security solutions purpose-built for delivery by managed service providers (MSPs), today reintroduced its Virtual SIRIS (vSIRIS) data protection software. Delivered as a virtual appliance, this software-only version of the industry-leading Datto SIRIS solution provides MSPs with the flexibility to meet the diverse data protection requirements of their small and medium business (SMB) clients with fully integrated software running on their own hardware.

Designed to support private cloud and virtual deployments, vSIRIS provides MSPs with comprehensive, highly scalable software backed by the immutable Datto cloud. Built with the same leading data backup and recovery capabilities as SIRIS, MSPs can protect their clients without the need for Datto hardware. vSIRIS can be installed remotely and runs as a virtual machine (VM) in either VMware ESX or Microsoft Hyper-V. It provides the ability to dynamically add resources to support changing workloads and connects to external storage, including storage area networks (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) devices.

The MSP-centric design of vSIRIS requires less administrative overhead than many other solutions, and simplifies scaling and management, reducing total cost of ownership for MSPs.

Key features include:

  • Reliable Data Protection: Automated, verified backups are stored locally and in the cloud, making them easy to access and ready to address any recovery scenario.
  • Flexible Restores: vSIRIS options include rapid rollback, instant cloud recovery, bare metal restore and everything in between.
  • Global Cloud Infrastructure: Datto’s secure, highly available (99.99999%) private cloud provides a range of data retention options, a choice of regional data centers, and the ability to scale and recover clients’ data and business operations quickly.
  • Reliable Backups: Datto’s proprietary Inverse Chain Technology combats the high failure rates associated with traditional incremental backup to deliver more resilient protection and efficient storage management.
  • Built-In Ransomware Detection: All backups are scanned for ransomware and backup files are resilient against ransomware attacks.
  • Automated Data and Boot Verification: Datto eliminates the need to worry if the system will boot or be recoverable by verifying the backup is good before disaster strikes.

“The realities of hardware deployments have changed. With the shift to remote work, it’s not always feasible for MSPs to visit their clients’ offices to install BCDR hardware,” said Bruce Muir, Director at DyCom Group, an Australia-based MSP. “The vSIRIS software solution allows easier, more flexible deployment in the current work environment. Datto SIRIS is the first product that enables us to use the same platform, with familiar, simple workflows across on-premise physical and on-premise virtual client resources. Datto is again helping MSPs to operate more quickly and efficiently, deepening our value to clients as we deliver more managed services.”

“Ever increasing security incidents have highlighted the importance of business continuity as the last line of defense for MSPs and their clients,” said Radhesh Menon, Chief Product Officer at Datto. “vSIRIS is being reintroduced as a hardware free option in the SIRIS product line, providing MSPs with the added flexibility they need to meet their clients’ diverse data protection needs onsite, in virtual environments, and in private clouds – all with the same fully integrated, single pane of glass management partners have come to expect from Datto Unified Continuity.”

To learn more about vSIRIS and how to choose the right solution, download our BCDR Buyers Guide for MSPs — https://www.datto.com/resources/bcdr-buyers-guide-for-msps

Siggi Group S.pa., an industrial group that specializes in manufacturing of professional clothing, ensures availability of IT services with site recovery orchestration in NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – June 4, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that Siggi Group S.p.a has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Siggi Group is an industrial group specializing in the manufacture of professional clothing. The group was founded in 1966, in Italy. The group can provide specific solutions to the needs of those working in industry, business, artisanship, catering, government, medical/hospital field, and child care. Siggi has been collaborating with MasterChef Italia since the show’s first season in 2011, with a range of aprons and the MasterChef Italia brand chef’s uniforms are available to all cooking enthusiasts.

Siggi’s IT infrastructure consists of 2 sites and 1 cloud datacenter, with 25 VMware virtual machines deployed for production purposes. Virtual machines store various file servers, mail servers, Microsoft SQL servers, Microsoft Dynamics NAV, a phone management system, business intelligence, and other application servers. All the group’s servers are mission-critical for business continuity, and any disruption to processes can lead to negative consequences for the company. Moreover, protecting data that is stored in the cloud is also vital. That is why reliable backup and disaster recovery procedures must be used for the business to run successfully. If critical data becomes unavailable, Siggi might suffer from all a complete halt to all sales and production processes.

Siggi Group had another VM backup solution deployed at their sites, but Omninet, an IT solutions partner, suggested other better suited alternatives on the market. Thus Siggi decided to switch to NAKIVO Backup & Replication. With the previous product, Siggi experienced the most common problems, which included failed backup jobs, long backup time, and failed recoveries. Plus, the product lacked a proper method for verifying the integrity of backups. The product also did not offer support for various OSs and deployments. In the end, the support and product quality just did not match Siggi’s requirements.

Siggi Group needed a user-friendly product with affordable pricing and efficient support, as well as a sales team who actually listened to the customer’s needs and requests. NAKIVO Backup & Replication fit the bill and provided all the necessary functionality in order for the clothing business to function properly. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a data protection solution for physical, virtual, cloud, and SaaS environments. The product offers flexibility in terms of deployment, offering installation on Linux/Windows, deployment on a NAS device, and deployment as a pre-configured virtual appliance. Moreover, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers Site Recovery orchestration and backup to Wasabi cloud.

Installation of NAKIVO Backup & Replication took Siggi more or less 15 minutes. “Installation time was impressive and it was easy to create our first backup job. In addition, now we have backup to Wasabi cloud, enjoying geographical redundancy of data, since now we are located in three different regions. The Wasabi backup functionality allowed us to reduce the cost of cloud backup,” says Silvia Marta, CEO of Siggi Group. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, you can send backups and backup copies of VMs to Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage, as well as recover backed up data from Wasabi by performing full and granular recoveries. Wasabi offers scalable cloud storage and does not charge for recovering backups (that is, no egress fees).

With the Site Recovery functionality, Siggi can orchestrate and automate disaster recovery with NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Site Recovery enables continuous delivery of IT services. The product monitors VMs and checks whether some of the VMs are unreachable. By creating Site Recovery jobs, you can minimize service disruption and downtime. “Site Recovery was helpful in an emergency situation, we were able to start up our production VMs in a few minutes,” says Silvia.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication also provides knowledgeable technical support that can be reached by phone, email, or chat. If you experience technical issues, you can just send a support bundle to support. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication is reliable, thus, we only turned to customer support a handful of times. However, when we needed help, the support team was always responsive, kind, and decisive,” says Silvia.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides Siggi Group with data protection functionalities that help ensure availability of IT services. With Wasabi backup, the company saves money while backing up to the cloud. While with Site Recovery, the company was able to recover production VMs in just a few minutes after an emergency situation. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication is 40% less expensive than our previous product, plus, we spend 30% less time on NAKIVO Backup & Replication when it comes to management. In addition to saving time and money, NAKIVO Backup & Replication guarantees reliable backups, as well as integration with various cloud platforms,” says Silvia.

Managed Service Providers (MSPs) can now deploy edge cloud workloads anywhere in the world, not just within QuadraNet’s data centers. We are excited to announce that QuadraNet has joined the Federated Edge powered by Zadara Edge Cloud Services

LOS ANGELES, CA – June 03, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Managed Service Providers are now beginning to see the early benefits of workloads at the Edge, such as ultra-low latency, reduced cost and improved performance. These benefits enable countless new edge opportunities that will require edge computing capability, like streaming services, online gaming, 5G service, self-driving cars, healthcare, manufacturing, and drones. There are many definitions of the “Edge”, but QuadraNet believes it is all about the deployment of infrastructure and applications as close as necessary to where data is generated and consumed.

The Federated Edge now enables QuadraNet and their MSPs to provision IT-as-a-Service business solutions to customers as close as necessary to their workloads. Similar to deploying in QuadraNet’s data centers, MSPs can now optimize for latency, price, performance and security/compliance through a shared revenue model, still while maintaining favorable margins.

“QuadraNet Cloud is now available Worldwide. Powered by Zadara’s Edge Cloud Services, QuadraNet is excited to offer On-Demand Edge Cloud Services anywhere in the world.” Ilan Mishan, CEO.

Make Geographical Coverage a Key Differentiator for Your Business in 2021
The rapid move to remote work underscored the importance of resiliency and flexibility for MSPs and their customers. Most enterprises today are doing business globally, which is one of the key reasons companies move to the cloud.

Many MSPs have had to turn down business opportunities because a customer needed to deploy workloads in an area where they did not have a presence. They have come to expect infrastructure deployments to include complicated pricing schemes that typically require customers to predict their capacity needs 3-5 years out from when they sign a long-term, fine-print laden contract. The alternative was to work with large cloud providers that charge inordinate fees for accessing your data. Now, with just a few clicks, Federated Edge operators can access a large global uniform edge cloud unlike anything available in the market today.

Beside playing global and moving faster, the Federated Edge provides a great opportunity for the MSP to future-proof their business with QuadraNet’s Edge Cloud Services. QuadraNet joined the Zadara Federate Edge so they could pass benefits along to their customers, like pay per use and the flexibility to expand and shrink on demand. Whereas MSPs on their own may not be able to compete with hyperscalers, together as a federation MSPs can offer customers the benefits of edge workloads where they are needed most. Federated Edge enables QuadraNet’s MSP partners to serve customers in a new global way and to immediately benefit from doing business in more places and working with new customers around the world.

Compete At The Edge
The low latency, increased bandwidth, enhanced security and burgeoning 5G opportunities are some of the benefits of the edge. MSPs can future-proof their business by supporting the next generation of technology by offering edge cloud services including compute and storage.

The cloud was originally built to put data in, and consequently taking data out often comes with huge egress fees. QuadraNet does not charge for data going in or out of our edge clouds. This is one of the areas the edge can complement the traditional cloud or on-prem solution. Another benefit of edge workloads is they can be temporary and QuadraNet will not charge egress fees. If a doctor is in Alabama and wants to see a radiology image, the latency for the image traveling cross country and the price they pay for egress can be extremely high. To improve performance and eliminate fees health care companies are currently leveraging edge clouds for immediate needs, before moving data back to the source or to the cloud for archival.

Backup as a service is another great edge use case today. When clients backup locally the performance and user experience is much greater than backing up cross country.

Additional technologies that will take full advantage of edge computing are still on the horizon. By joining the Federated Edge, QuadraNet will have a first mover advantage in supporting these new advancements.

Federate Edge powered by Zadara will create more opportunities to deploy and cross sell globally that any business can benefit from. Many of these workloads exist today, but as the infrastructure matures, so will the opportunities for enterprises that require multiple geographic locations, whether local and/or global.

ABOUT QUADRANET
Founded in 2001, QuadraNet has been helping Enterprises to SMB customers worldwide deploy a complete suite of enterprise-grade IaaS Solutions, with a diversified footprint in 8 cities and 10 Interconnected facilities.

Company’s 24 Awards and Accolades from TrustRadius and G2 Highlight Ease-Of-Use, Expansive Support, and Category Leadership

SUNNYVALE, Calif. ? June 3, 2020  — /BackupReview.info/ — Druva Inc., the leader in Cloud Data Protection and Management, today announced its innovative platform, extensive workload coverage, and seamless user experience has been recognized by leading independent review platforms. Based solely on independent customer feedback and reviews, Druva Cloud Platform and its customer success team secured 20 awards in G2’s Spring Reports 2021, and has been honored with four 2021 TrustRadius Top Rated Awards for categories including being named a top solution for Disaster Recovery, Endpoint Backup, and Data Deduplication for the second consecutive year.

In order to support an increasingly digital workforce, enable faster innovation, and maintain a competitive advantage, organizations have accelerated digital transformation initiatives by 20 to 25X during the COVID-19 pandemic*. However, as organizations decentralize their data, these exponentially growing footprints require more centralized protection and management. Only solutions built in the cloud are capable of scaling for these massive data sets. Druva’s unified protection for cloud, hybrid, and endpoint workloads can be deployed in as little as 15 minutes while reducing overall data protection cost and complexity. Offering the largest cloud data protection platform operating at scale, Druva helps organizations increase data visibility, remain compliant amidst a complex regulatory landscape, and stay resilient from malicious attacks, ransomware, or unforeseen disasters.

“Data protection has become a top priority for organizations in light of accelerating digital transformation and increasing threats,” said Matt Lindeman, Chief Customer Officer, Druva. “Organizations need confidence that solutions can be rapidly and securely deployed, require minimal management, and are backed by outstanding customer service. These recent awards are a further testament of not only Druva’s ability to continuously deliver on the promise of radically simplified data protection, but to help businesses unlock the value of their data, enhance experiences, and drive business results.”

Supported by Druva’s expansive platform and robust ecosystem, the company was recognized by TrustRadius and G2 as a leader in categories including:

  • Best Support
  • Easiest To Do Business With – Enterprise

Our Top Rated Awards are unique in the industry because they’re completely unbiased. Recognition is given to software that earns a high trScore, along with the recency and relevancy of authentic customer reviews. These three criteria make the Top Rated Awards a true voice of the market.”

As an ever-greater number of companies undertake their digital transformation journeys, solutions like Druva can help enable their acceleration to the cloud.”

REDWOOD CITY, CA – June 02, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced that it commenced a “modified Dutch Auction” tender offer to purchase up to $500 million in value of shares of its issued and outstanding Class A common stock, or such lesser number of shares of its Class A common stock as are properly tendered and not properly withdrawn, at a price not less than $22.75 per share nor greater than $25.75 per share, to the seller in cash, less any applicable withholding taxes and without interest. The tender offer is made in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions described in the offer to purchase and the related letter of transmittal, as each may be amended or supplemented from time to time.

The closing price of Box’s Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on June 1, 2021, the last full trading day before the commencement of the tender offer, was $23.97 per share. The tender offer is scheduled to expire at 12:00 midnight, New York City time, at the end of the day on June 29, 2021, unless the offer is extended or terminated. Tenders of shares must be made prior to the expiration of the tender offer and may be withdrawn at any time prior to the expiration of the tender offer.

The purpose of the tender offer is to return capital to Box stockholders. In particular, Box believes the modified “Dutch auction” tender offer set forth in this offer to purchase is a mechanism that will provide all Box stockholders with the opportunity to tender all or a portion of their stock if they so elect at a price they may select within the specified range. In addition, the tender offer provides stockholders with an opportunity to obtain liquidity with respect to all or a portion of their stock holdings, without potential disruption to the stock price and the usual transaction costs inherent in open market purchases and sales. Stockholders who choose not to participate will increase their relative percentage interest in Box and its future results.

The tender offer is not conditioned on any minimum number of shares being tendered. However, the tender offer is subject to a number of other terms and conditions, which are described in detail in the offer to purchase. Specific instructions and a complete explanation of the terms and conditions of the tender offer are contained in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal and other related materials, which will be mailed to stockholders of record promptly after commencement of the tender offer.

The information agent for the tender offer is Innisfree M&A Incorporated. The depositary for the tender offer is Computershare Trust Company, N.A. The dealer manager for the tender offer is Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC. For all questions relating to the tender offer, please call the information agent, Innisfree M&A Incorporated, toll-free at 1 (877) 750-8233; banks and brokers may call the dealer manager, Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC at 1 (855) 483-0952.

None of Box, the members of its board of directors, the dealer manager, the information agent or the depositary, or any of their respective affiliates, makes any recommendation as to whether any stockholder should participate or refrain from participating in the tender offer or as to the purchase price or purchase prices at which stockholders may choose to tender their shares in the tender offer. Stockholders must make their own decision as to whether to tender their shares and, if so, how many shares to tender and the price or prices at which their shares should be tendered. In doing so, stockholders should consult their own financial and tax advisors and read carefully and evaluate the information in the offer to purchase, the related letter of transmittal and other related materials (as they may be amended or supplemented), including the reasons for the tender offer.

TBConsulting (TBC), an enterprise IT solutions provider, has successfully deployed IT Infrastructure in weeks, not months

PHOENIX, AZ – June 02, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — TBConsulting (TBC), an enterprise IT solutions provider, has successfully deployed HIPAA-compliant networking, data storage, cybersecurity, and business operations systems to allow a medical diagnostic startup to go from lease signing to live in just three weeks.

A molecular testing startup contacted TBC’s sales team in January 2021. Their stated need was “everything” related to IT systems and data, with a firm deadline of February 8, 2021. Despite the very compressed timeline, the TBC team felt equipped to take on the challenge.

Led by Eric Marshall, Solutions Architect at TBC, cloud services and a cybersecurity program were implemented to outfit a brand-new office build-out with secure hardware and software. In partnership with vendors like Microsoft and Cisco Meraki, the team enabled the client to launch a COVID-19 testing biomedical laboratory in a matter of weeks.

Marshall said about the initial client conversation, “They came to us with nothing but a new office building. They told us, ‘we need everything as we have no network, internet, systems, controls, or IT management. We need help getting it all up and running, and fast, to achieve our go-live date.'”

TBC quickly got to work installing a complete cloud infrastructure and more. The solution included:

  • Microsoft Hyper-V cluster supporting on-premises server workloads, managed in part via Microsoft Azure services
  • Microsoft 365, including authentication, endpoint, and security management, as well as business applications such as –
  • SharePoint and Teams for collaboration and document management.
  • Cloud-based data backup capabilities
  • Cisco Meraki networking hardware with a cloud-managed dashboard

“Organizations typically require months to deploy a cloud infrastructure, and then only when they have some baseline to build upon. We are very proud of our team’s ability to get a brand-new startup up and running in a matter of weeks,” said Dieter Gable, CEO of TBC. “We expect as the world continues to operate remotely, new startups will prefer hybrid cloud solutions, and TBC is poised to support those companies quickly.”

TBConsulting was founded nearly 25 years ago to make enterprise IT solutions more consumable and affordable for mid-market and emerging enterprises. TBC continues to deliver top tier managed and professional services as it supports larger and more geographically diverse clientele. Through partnerships with enterprise-grade technology companies including Nutanix, Veeam, ServiceNow, and Oracle, TBC builds advanced digital capabilities to empower clients to deliver business outcomes. TBC offers solutions in hybrid cloud deployment, cybersecurity, data backup and recovery, and more.
