Solution Offers Public Cloud-like Scalability and Ease of Management in Customer Data Centers

SAN MATEO, Calif. – Nov. 29th, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Cloudian® today announced the launch of its HyperStore® on-prem data lake storage solution in partnership with Snowflake, the Data Cloud company. Cloudian and Snowflake customers will now have access to data stored on HyperStore that is deployed on-premises in either a private cloud or hybrid cloud configuration. Designed from its inception to be fully S3 compatible, HyperStore provides the scalability and ease-of-management of a public cloud within an organization’s data center, offering enhanced performance, full control over security, data sovereignty, and reduced cost.

The combination of Cloudian and Snowflake addresses increasing interest from customers in running analytics applications on data in-place rather than having to move that data to a public cloud, which can be costly and time consuming. In addition to providing private cloud storage, HyperStore can also be deployed as part of a hybrid cloud strategy, with data being replicated or tiered to public cloud service providers.

Reflecting Cloudian’s leadership in object storage, it is the only vendor named a Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Distributed File Systems and Object Storage[1] for three consecutive years[2].

Key HyperStore benefits include:

  • Modular, limitless scalability – Start with three low-cost nodes and expand simply by adding devices to the cluster without disrupting analytics workloads.
  • Data resiliency – Get up to 14 nines of resiliency with administrator-defined data replication or erasure coding.
  • Ransomware protection – Through S3 Object Lock, prevent malware from encrypting and/or deleting data — enabling quick, easy recovery without paying ransom — and meet governance and legal hold demands.
  • Military-grade security – Further secure data with features such as 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 the most stringent government security requirements.
  • Multi-tenancy – Allow multiple users to store and analyze data within a single, shared data lakehouse — without compromising security — while also employing multi-tenant billing, metering and quality of service (QoS) controls.

“We look forward to seeing our joint customers unlock more value from their data through our partnership with Cloudian,” said Tarik Dwiek, Head of Technology Alliances at Snowflake. “Together, we work to enable our customers to take advantage of our joint solutions in order to move forward with mobilizing their data.”

“Analytics applications are providing new opportunities for organizations to leverage their digital assets, including on-premises data, to achieve their goals,” said Larry Meese, vice president of products and solutions, Cloudian. “We look forward to working with Snowflake to help customers capitalize on these opportunities by providing a robust, modern storage foundation.”

DUBAI, UAE – 28 November, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Veeam® Software, the leader in Modern Data Protection, hosted 200 registered attendees, customers, partners and industry experts at its VeeamON Tour in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia recently. The event at Al Ammariyah Hills Resort connected leading IT experts and visionaries throughout the region to share and learn about the hottest topics in the market, including Modern Data Protection, ransomware, native cloud and Kubernetes.

Mohamad Rizk, Regional Director, Middle East & CIS at Veeam Software who presented the keynote address entitled ‘The Future to Modern Data Protection’ said, “With the current digital transformation trend and emergence of the hybrid workplace, cloud, virtualization, Kubernetes and SaaS have all seen rapidly growing adoption by regional enterprises in the Middle East. They are seeking to bring flexibility, scalability, simplicity and cost benefits into their IT infrastructures by moving away from legacy data centre architectures. As such, they recognize how vital it is to have a comprehensive strategy that embraces and protects vital data across all these environments. Eliminating data protection gaps, engaging automation, and moving to an autonomous system reduces risks, improves productivity, and creates robust business continuity.”

Product Innovation
“With increasing threats from ransomware attacks and data security challenges relating to multi-/hybrid-cloud architecture adoption, we, as a community, have rallied together to deliver the most robust solutions to our customers. Veeam provides a single platform for all data environments. Ensuring data security, protection and integrity is deeply rooted in our DNA and our continuous technology innovation has helped us reach the status of being the #1 provider in EMEA during 2H’21 in IDC’s DR&P market. VeeamON Tour Riyadh has been an excellent forum to showcase all our innovations that will help customers drive business efficiency and agility, protect their data, and ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their digital transformation. Our software-defined approach means there is no lock-in to proprietary hardware and works with our customers’ existing architecture, both on-premises and in the cloud.”

“Entire industries face a data protection emergency and businesses are looking for ways to accelerate their strategies to protect data, remediate cyber-attacks and recover from systems outages. Companies who succeed in accelerating their adoption of a Modern Data Protection strategy will put in place solid foundations to gain competitive advantage from digitization. It will enable them to experience the lower cost points and flexibility of public cloud, leverage the security and proximity of private cloud, and fast-track their development cycles by deploying Kubernetes, with the assurance that their data is protected across their entire infrastructure. Organizations should also understand that they can be vulnerable to vendor lock-in due to exponential business growth with the data protection requirements that once worked before now being, outdated and no longer viable to their current business model. Data protection solutions, like in the case of Veeam, should be flexible and scale with the customers business without the extra cost of vendor lock-in or complexity,” said Mohamad Rizk.

VeeamON Tour attendees were given a demonstration of Veeam’s latest technologies including:

  • Veeam Backup & Replication™ v12 – the latest version of the award-winning backup solution that is at the epicenter of the future of modern data protection. New capabilities introduced with V12 will include:
    • Backups going direct to object storage and cloud-based agents are also available as cloud-accelerated features
    • With immutability everywhere, ransomware can be recovered and threats against cyberattacks can be stopped even faster; Improves efficiency at scale with additional enterprise application support and innovations
    • A new Veeam Backup & Replication plug-in for Kasten by Veeam K10 V5.0 provides visibility and management for Kubernetes data protection.
  • Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365 v7
  • Newly launched Veeam Backup for Salesforce
  • Kasten by Veeam K100, the most complete enterprise data management solution to date purpose-built for Kubernetes; and cloud-native solutions (for AWS, Azure and Google Cloud).

Kubernetes on the rise
The session, ‘Kubernetes the Next wave of Infrastructure’, provided insights on the growing adoption of Kubernetes, the de facto platform for orchestrating containers today. According to findings of the Veeam Data Protection Trends Report 2022, 69% of UAE organizations and 76% of Saudi Arabian organizations are already running containers in production, while 29% and 22% respectively plan to do so in the next 12 months. Containers and Kubernetes have greatly simplified operations for DevOps teams, accelerating the rate at which companies can go to market with new applications and technologies, internally or externally. Kubernetes also enables organizations to create self-healing, highly available applications. As more companies adopt containers and do their orchestration using Kubernetes, the potential attack surface will grow. This is why regional enterprises need to expand their Modern Data Protection strategies with technologies that work against a wide range of Kubernetes application stacks and deployment methods, such as Kasten K10, that completes their ability to protect these new cloud-native workloads and the business growth they support.

The last line of defence against ransomware
The incidence of ransomware is on the rise, regionally, 88% of UAE and 84% of Saudi Arabian organizations fell prey to ransomware attacks in 2021. Against this backdrop VeeamON Tour Riyadh presented ‘Ransomware Best Practices for Secure Backup & Recovery’. Attendees discovered how secure backup is an organization’s last line of defense against ransomware and what they can do to counter the need to pay a ransom to recover their data. For businesses in the Middle East to win the ransomware battle, they must do three things – educate their employees, implement the 3-2-1-1-0 backup rule requiring 3 copies of data and have a remediation plan of a full Backup and Disaster Recovery strategy, that gives them the ability to recover data in event of a ransomware attack.

Findings from the Veeam Data Protection Trends Report 2022 that were shared with attendees included the fact that 98% of UAE organizations and 97% of Saudi organizations experienced unexpected outages within the last 12 months and on average, 17% of UAE organizations’ and 18% of Saudi organizations’ data is left completely unprotected.

Key sponsors of VeeamON Tour Riyadh included platinum sponsors Exagrid, Scality, Nutanix, Redington and Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Gold sponsors included Pure Storage, Defined Solutions, Intel, Lenovo, CT4, Ingram Micro, Alnafitha IT and National Computer Systems Co. (NATCOM).

Panzura Recruits Katie McCullough to the Role of Chief Information Security Officer as the Multi-Cloud Data Management Leader Builds Out Its Security Offering To Address Customers’ Cyber Pain Points

SAN JOSE, Calif. – November 29, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Panzura, LLC (“Panzura”), the leader in hybrid multi-cloud data management, has appointed Katie McCullough to its newly created role of Chief Information Security Officer. Katie will be responsible for security and compliance for the company and customers alike as Panzura continues its ambitious growth trajectory.

The appointment follows a record turnaround since the company’s “refounding” in 2020, led by CEO Jill Stelfox. Since May 2020, Panzura has grown its revenue by 485%, launched several new products, raised $80 million in Series B funding, and instituted company-wide structural changes that improve diversity and drive performance. These changes include equalizing pay for men and women, mental health coaching provision, and the freedom to work remotely — all delivered by Panzura’s gender-balanced board.

Panzura’s appointment of Katie — and the creation of the CISO role — comes at a time when customer data is increasingly under threat from a growing number of sources across a widening attack area. Cyberthreats like ransomware are rising in number and increasing in sophistication, growing threefold since 2020 according to Forrester. “Evading cyberthreats is an around-the-clock challenge for customers. The traditional approach for companies has been to move fast to neutralize data threats after they happen,” commented Panzura CEO, Jill Stelfox. “We want a more proactive, intelligent approach to keeping data safe that works better for businesses. We were looking for a leader in the security space who could shape Panzura’s vision for cybersecurity with fresh thinking and a commitment to excellence. Katie was the stand-out candidate and we’re thrilled to welcome her to the team.”

“It’s a privilege to join a fast-growing company with as much potential as Panzura. Jill and her team have an incredible vision for the future of data management, and I can’t wait to help shape the future of data security”. — KATIE MCCULLOUGH

Katie joins Panzura with more than 25 years of experience executing and leading security operations, compliance, managed services, and cloud solutions. During her time working for industry-leading companies OneNeck IT Solutions and CDW/Berbee, Katie has time and again proven her strategic leadership creating secure IT environments that enable businesses to run, grow, and transform.

Jill continued, “Our industry is changing. In my role as the only female CEO in data management, I set about creating an equitable, diverse work culture that rewards passion and performance. Katie’s proven ability to develop and implement transformative security strategies through her inspirational, team-centered leadership style makes her a great fit for Panzura.”

Katie’s appointment will further Panzura’s goal to deliver groundbreaking, patented innovation to customers. The company currently holds 37 patents, having recently added two new patents that extend Panzura’s leadership in managing and protecting cloud-based distributed computing environments. The first of the new patents is #11470146 Managing a Cloud-Based Distributed Computing Environment Using a Distributed Database. It employs a distributed cloud data management system (“DCDMS”), layered upon a cloud storage system, which tracks objects accessed through the DCDMS. By utilizing several extended capabilities (snapshots, clones, roll-backs, etc.), this patent claims a method for efficient management and retrieval of client data in a cloud environment. The second patent is #11467967 Managing a Distributed Cache In a Cloud-Based Distributed Computing Environment. It involves a data processing layer (“DPL”) that receives data requests from a client and subsequently locates and interacts with the appropriate caches assigned to the target data and metadata. The DPL further employs cache mapping and data block fingerprints to ensure that the data operations requested correspond with valid data. Together, these patents demonstrate Panzura’s commitment to advancing its security portfolio.

Panzura has earned multiple industry awards in the past 12 months, including “Cloud Infrastructure Solution of the Year” by the Tech Ascension Awards, and “Best Hybrid Cloud Solution” in the Cloud Awards. Other industry recognition includes being named to the Inc. 5000 list of Fastest-Growing Companies in the US and being named among its 2022 Best Workplaces. The company is on target to add another 150 team members by the end of 2022 with opportunities in Engineering, Marketing, HR, Finance, and Sales.

With secure backup the last line in defence against ransomware, alignment across IT teams is needed

Paris, France – November 24, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Veeam® Software, the leader in Modern Data Protection reveals that only 23 percent of organizations report having fully unified cyber-attack preparedness, disaster recovery and business continuity strategies. This stat and other highlights are revealed as part of the Veeam Ransomware Trends Report 2022, which uncovers the impact of ransomware on companies’ IT environments, as well as their strategies for remediation and the data protection in use or being considered.

The report found that although these strategies are generally well integrated into the processes for preventing cyber-attacks, there remains a lack of coordination between the teams charged with ensuring proactive cybersecurity and those in charge of data backup and reactive remediation. With immutable backup being the last line of defence against ransomware, the report outlines a number of areas for improvement that French companies are encouraged to follow in their bid to thwart bad actors from launching successful ransomware attacks.

Invest in advanced technologies to prepare for potential attacks
The financial impact of the ransomware industry is valued at nearly $50 billion annually. To combat the impact of cyberattacks and maintain their operations, 95% of companies are turning to isolation techniques and immutable backup repositories including cloud and object storage, Backup as a Service (BaaS) and Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) solutions. They work to protect vital corporate data and mitigate attacks, and when coupled with cyber-attack preparedness and verifiable business continuity/disaster recovery strategies (BCDR), enable organizations to repel or limit damage and losses associated with a ransomware attack. They can be the difference between joining the 22% of EMEA organisations who claimed they could recover without paying a ransom, or not.

Improving team coordination and regular data backups: the keys to optimal protection
The key to enabling the 78% of cyber victims who paid a ransom to join the ranks of the 22% could be better alignment of the expertise provided by cybersecurity and BCDR Teams.

The Veeam Ransomware Trends Report 2022 points to some dissonance between these teams. When asked about their views on the strategic unity of prevention and remediation strategies across their businesses, 23% respondents claimed it was ‘completely unified’, and 58% that it was ‘mostly unified’. Whether this was viewed as good enough depended upon the respondent’s role. Those closer to prevention (security professionals) and remediation (backup administrators) saw a need for greater improvement than IT operations or senior executives did.

Fortunately, respondents from organisations’ incident response teams, with responsibility for overcoming cyberattacks, reported seeing the value of both strategies. They felt the top two components that protecting a business and its most critical data were: backup copies and ‘healthy’ data (37%), and backup frequency and verification (35%).

According to Patrick Rohrbasser, Regional Vice President Southern Europe & Africa at Veeam: “Ransomware has democratized data theft to the extent that today, it’s no longer a question of if or when a company will fall victim to a ransomware attack, but rather how often. As a disaster that costs businesses nearly two million euros per incident, it is vital for business and IT leaders to work together to protect the critical data running across their systems, no matter what architecture, platform or workload they use. Modern forms of data attack need Modern Data Protection strategies that will deliver both resilience to data breaches, and reliable backups, so that companies can be confident that if the worst should happen, they can restore their data without having to pay a costly ransom.”

Backup, recovery, and replication are critically important instruments for protecting the bank’s financial data.

Previously, the bank relied on scheduled database backups and manual backups for certain virtual machines. The previous approach meant that backups took too long to complete, and the probability of a failed backup was too high. With failed jobs, the IT team spent most of their time verifying the validity of backups. Moreover, recovery jobs were not always successful either. The main criteria for implementing a new solution was to have working backups with flexible automation options, reliability, and better performance in terms of speed.

“We were looking for a backup solution that would have high backup and recovery performance without any failed jobs, as well as provide us with a process for verifying the quality of backups and recoveries,” says David Gamidadze, System and Network Administrator at Silk Road Bank. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication addressed all our challenges in data protection. NAKIVO Backup & Replication is a reliable solution that helped us achieve a 100% success rate with working backup jobs.”

Silk Road Bank installed the solution on a QNAP NAS, allowing the bank to take advantage of already available hardware. This deployment option creates an integrated backup appliance, giving the bank increased backup speed, efficient data compression, and instant data recovery. “The entire installation process was smooth and painless. The web interface is also user-friendly,” says David.

“We have different scenarios for different VMs. For critical VMs, we do backups at the end of every day. For VMs of medium importance, we do backups two to three times a week. For low-importance VMs, we do backups once every two weeks,” says David, “Overall, for a 1-TB VM with databases, the backup job is completed within 20 minutes.”

Silk Road Bank also takes advantage of other functionalities such as backup copy and instant VM recovery in NAKIVO Backup & Replication. “Backup copy ensures that we have a second copy of our backups in another location,” says David. “For us, instant VM recovery saves a lot of time because we operate 24/7. Recovering a VM within minutes is incredible.”

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication saved our IT team nearly 90% of the time we spent on data protection versus our previous solution. The IT team achieved stability in their daily activities, as they can now focus on other tasks rather than on monitoring the backup solution full time,” says David. “NAKIVO Backup & Replication is user-friendly and saves us time every day. NAKIVO Backup & Replication covered all of the issues that we experienced before and exceeded our expectations. NAKIVO’s technical support is customer-oriented and great at addressing customer’s needs.”

Arcserve’s OneXafe immutable storage solution recognized by industry vote

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – Nov. 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Arcserve, the world’s most experienced provider of backup, recovery and immutable storage solutions for unified data resilience against ransomware and disasters, has announced it has won the Best Business Backup and Continuity Provider category at the prestigious Computing Technology Product Awards 2022. The awards ceremony was held at the Montcalm Hotel in London on Friday, November 25.

Computing’s Technology Product Awards recognize the best of the U.K.’s technology industry: from the most innovative and compelling products and vendors to the most exciting and successful end-user projects. The competition is unique amongst technology awards because there is no judging panel. Instead, IT leaders are called upon to vote to decide who should take home the prizes.

The Best Business Backup and Continuity Provider category identified that backing up data is critical in a world where the effects of a security breach can lock or corrupt company-wide systems. The organizers said that Arcserve won this award by demonstrating that its OneXafe 4400 and OneXafe 4500 Series, with immutable storage solutions, provide a robust business continuity service. They also showed their ability to work with customers to find the best solution on a bespoke level. Arcserve demonstrated flexibility, adaptability, product, and service choice.

Said Florian Malecki, executive vice president of marketing for Arcserve: “This is another fantastic achievement for Arcserve. We are particularly proud of this recognition because our peers – IT leaders within the data security industry – have nominated us for this award. We already know what a great product the OneXafe Series is to provide IT professionals with an immutable digital vault for their backup and unstructured data, so it is very satisfying to see that the industry also recognizes this and agrees. This award again underscores our commitment to providing our partners and end-users with industry-leading products that help strengthen their data resilience to secure business continuity, no matter what.”

  • Significant expansion in Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Czech Republic, Gulf States, Emirates, Middle East, North Africa, Cyprus and Turkey
  • Expansion provides improved backup and recovery services increasing the use of 365 Total Protection suite and 365 Total Backup from Hornetsecurity
  • Email cloud security and compliance added to mix in APAC with the expansion of Datastor Australia’s portfolio

Pittsburgh, PA – Nov. 28, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Global email security and backup provider, Hornetsecurity, has today announced a major push into several different regions across the world, with the signing of new distributors and partnerships. This further expands Hornetsecurity’s established presence in Europe, the US and LATAM.

In the Philippines and Saudi Arabia, the signing of distributors WSI and S2 will see Hornetsecurity’s capabilities support even more businesses in limiting cybersecurity issues. EMT have been appointed as distributors of Hornetsecurity solutions in the Middle East. In Eastern Europe, software distributors ED&R Polska in Poland and PBCom in the Czech Republic have been selected due to their significant Microsoft presence. In Australia, Datastor Australia has expanded its portfolio from Altaro backup solutions for Microsoft 365 to the full range of Hornetsecurity cyber solutions, adding email cloud security and compliance into the mix.

These agreements, covering more than 10 countries, will take Hornetsecurity’s flagship 365 Total Protection suite and 365 Total Backup far deeper into their respective Microsoft communities.

Colin Wright, VP, ROW, Hornetsecurity, commented: “In signing these agreements, we have made a significant expansion commitment into APAC and Eastern Europe. Microsoft retains significant dominance in the region, so it makes sense that our complementary next-gen email security, backup and compliance solutions should grow alongside as the number one third-party provider. To date, we’ve focused largely on Western Europe and the Americas, but now we have a dedicated team to roll out Hornetsecurity into APAC and we are finding initial demand really exciting.”

Hazel Escanlar, General Manager WSI, commented: “We’re one of the leading distributors in the Philippines, and we’ve taken the decision to expand our cybersecurity portfolio with Hornetsecurity because of its alternate stance on becoming the number one end-to-end supplier of cybersecurity and set-and-forget backups for Microsoft for SMBs, and all controlled from one easy-to-use control panel for those offering managed services. With Hornetsecurity, it’s all about convenience and flexibility to give MSPs peace of mind while reducing their demands on time.”

From a partner perspective, 365 Total Backup enables managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs) to provide backup and recovery services for Microsoft 365 mailboxes, Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint. They can easily take backups and manage them through a multi-tenant, cloud-based control panel. 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup combines this functionality with state-of-the-art email security that protects against spam, viruses, phishing and ransomware; as well as providing Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), email signatures and disclaimers, automated email continuity and legally compliant email archiving.

Daniel Hofmann, CEO, Hornetsecurity, explained: “Through these new appointments, we can offer a great market opportunity to more partners globally. They can now bring their customers to Microsoft 365 in a secure, safe and compliant mode, through our next-gen solutions. We also provide them with the unique benefit of being able to back up the data shared via User Chats in Microsoft Teams as well as Group Channel Conversations, something other vendors are not able to do. This strong market position gives our partners a compelling advantage.”

About Hornetsecurity
Hornetsecurity is the leading security and backup solution provider for Microsoft 365. Its flagship product is the most extensive cloud security solution for Microsoft 365 on the market, providing robust, comprehensive, award-winning protection: Spam and virus filtering, protection against phishing and ransomware, legally compliant archiving and encryption, advanced threat protection, email continuity, signatures and disclaimers.

The distinctive architecture allows even the most sensitive agencies to move critical workloads into the cloud without fearing ransomware or internal threats

SAN JOSE, Calif. – Nov. 22, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Panzura LLC, a leader in hybrid-architecture data management, announced today the launch of a new comprehensive data management solution for customers that work in sensitive data environments, such as public sector, healthcare, and financial services. Because the service makes both the snapshots and the data immutable, ransomware attacks can’t damage files in the Panzura global file system. Instead, attacks are shrugged off by quickly reverting to seconds-old data blocks to reassemble uninfected files. Through a new strategic agreement, this new solution, as well as all of Panzura’s other workloads, will run on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“We’ve never lost a file, and we share a common goal to make the world safe for data. Leveraging the scalability of AWS technology stack, we are building a system that will one day make the entire idea of ransomware obsolete”. — JILL STELFOX | CEO OF PANZURA, LLC

Panzura has already been co-marketing Panzura CloudFS with AWS, securing databases for dozens of customers, such as AmeriHome Mortgage, Stoke Space, and Vanguard. Customers working with this solution gained deep integration with AWS services, such as AWS Outposts, easing purchasing and ensuring compatibility across AWS services. Now, users of the new ransomware-resilient data management offering will also enjoy these benefits.

Gartner predicts that 85% of global organizations will embrace a cloud-first strategy by 2025 and can only fully execute their digital transformation strategies using cloud-native architectures and technologies. Panzura’s elegant approach to unstructured data management ensures customers have a high-performance, high-intelligence, ransomware-resilient data environment.

“Rocket data is highly regulated and highly sensitive. We sought out AWS GovCloud and Panzura so our company could deliver quickly, while zeroing out the risk of ransomware. When we’re trying to outpace our competition, we can’t go hours without data due to attacks or infrastructure interruptions”. — BRENT BRADBURY | HEAD OF SOFTWARE FOR STOKE SPACE TECHNOLOGIES

This architecture allows even the most sensitive agencies to move critical workloads to the cloud without fearing ransomware or internal exfiltration threats. The strategic agreement with AWS builds on three joint initiatives: highly-secure data migration, Panzura CloudFS on AWS, and Panzura Data Services. It gives joint customers a competitive advantage when migrating workloads into the cloud and reflects Panzura’s broader company objective to make the world a safer place for data.

“Security continues to be paramount for us and expanding our cloud capabilities for those customers in industries where the bar for compliance and security is set particularly high, has never been more relevant. A key benefit of our collaboration with Panzura is the opportunity to jointly support customers who require this level of data protection, from small businesses to enterprise organizations”. — HOWARD WRIGHT | VP AND GLOBAL HEAD OF STARTUPS AWS

Panzura CloudFS, the 8th generation of Panzura’s award-winning hybrid architecture file system, allows businesses to modernize and simplify their legacy data storage solutions. Panzura’s smart apps offer file consistency, real-time file locking for data integrity, ransomware resilience, and backup snapshots for granular data recovery. The Panzura CloudFS continues to support all cloud or on-premises environments.

Panzura’s team will be attending AWS re:Invent in Las Vegas, from November 28 to December 2. Please reach out to Danielle Ahmadi at Danielle.Ahmadi@panzura.com if you want to schedule some time to learn more about this announcement.

About Panzura
Panzura makes hybrid multi-cloud data management seem easy. Panzura’s data management platform is a single, unified data engine designed to securely power the most rigorous, large-scale multi-site enterprise data workfows across the globe. Intelligent edge technologies enable LAN performance with cloud economics together with simplified data management, advanced analytics, reduced operational complexity, and improved security.

Audio annotations with transcripts can now be attached to any file in the FileShadow Vault, associating commentary with photos, files, medical documents and Collections

PROVO, Utah – November 21, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — FileShadow™ announced today that files in FileShadow can now be annotated with multiple audio recordings and automatically create transcripts of those recordings. The service connects any number of annotations to a file so recordings and transcripts can be reviewed at the same time. Once annotations are attached, the files are associated, regardless of where the content is located.

Using FileShadow’s powerful search engine, users can locate photos/documents by entering keywords found in the audio recordings. Transcripts can be downloaded, shared, and search terms highlighted and viewed while listening to the recording.

Users also have the option to send a link to the photos/documents/recordings so anyone can review the files via their web browser.

“The uses for FileShadow Annotations are especially valuable in the genealogy, family history, medical, legal and creative industries,” said Tyrone Pike, president and CEO of FileShadow. “Any group or industry that collaborates on documents, images, videos and other files can use Annotations to get work done faster.”

In genealogy and family history applications, FileShadow Annotations can be used to allow multiple relatives to relate stories about family photos. Genealogists can record Grandma’s comments about family photos. Other family members can also share their comments about that same photo.

In the medical field, a specialist can send a CAT Scan, annotate the scan, and send it to a primary care physician. That physician can record his/her comments about the image for the specialist to review. The specialist can also record his/her comments about the image. All annotations are recorded in FileShadow, regardless of where the files and users are located.

Users annotate a file in a FileShadow Vault on a mobile device by performing these steps:

  • Select the file to be annotated.
  • Select the microphone icon in the menu.
  • Enter a description of the annotation.
  • Press Record and talk about the file.
  • Review the recording if needed.
  • Attach the recording.
  • Listen and review the file and annotations from the web, desktop or mobile apps.

Once annotated, the recording and the file are associated and can be viewed in the FileShadow Vault. Annotations and files can be published to anyone through the FileShadow Website Collection Manager. Users can create Website Collections of any files: documents, photos, videos, etc., along with the annotations, so they can be shared with anyone, regardless of where reviewers are located and whether or not they are FileShadow users. Anyone inside or outside the FileShadow system can also contribute files to Website Collections.

View the types of files, devices and systems FileShadow connects to here — https://www.fileshadow.com/#solutions

The feature updates will be available on the product’s various platforms throughout the rest of the year. For a free 30-day trial of FileShadow, visit www.fileshadow.com

About FileShadow
The FileShadow service aggregates files from cloud storage accounts (Adobe Creative Cloud, Adobe’s Lightroom solutions, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, OneDrive and Slack); email (Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, Gmail, iCloud Mail, Yahoo! Mail and IMAP servers); local storage (macOS, Windows Desktops, Windows Virtual Desktops); mobile devices (iOS and Android); and network and direct-attached storage (NAS/DAS) devices.

Using machine learning, FileShadow provides superior indexing and searching capabilities.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 17, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced the general availability of an enhanced Box app for Zoom that enables customers to automatically save select Zoom recordings directly to Box. With this new feature, joint customers can manage their content in one place while maintaining enterprise-grade security, compliance, and governance all within Zoom.

“This new feature has been one of the most highly requested features by joint Box and Zoom Video Communications, Inc. customers,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “At Box, we continuously strive to improve our integrations with third-party apps so that our users can work smarter, with less clicking and context switching between various platforms, and admins can keep sensitive content unified within one secure platform. With today’s announcement, Box and Zoom’s thousands of joint customers will be able to boost efficiency and productivity, while securely accessing their content from anywhere.”

According to a recent report from Harvard Business Review — https://hbr.org/2022/08/how-much-time-and-energy-do-we-waste-toggling-between-applications, the average worker toggles between different apps and websites nearly 1,200 times a day, spending up to four hours a week reorienting themselves after switching to a new application. Showcased last week at Zoomtopia, this deepened integration between Box and Zoom addresses the pain-point of content fragmentation across business apps, allowing joint customers to create a seamless experience between their content and meetings while preserving the security, compliance, and governance controls customers set in Box.

Now, with the enhanced Box app for Zoom, users can:

  • Seamlessly save Zoom Meeting recordings straight to Box by simply toggling a button.
  • Navigate back to Box to access and share Zoom audio, video and transcripts via the “My Zoom Recordings” folder.
  • Maintain enterprise-grade security, compliance and governance policies by keeping Zoom recordings with all content in Box.
  • Move or edit recordings and assign tasks to files uploaded to the dedicated Zoom recordings folder with Box Relay. Choose how long recordings can be stored with Box Governance.

This update culminates a successful year of innovation between Box and Zoom. Earlier this year, Box launched an integration with Zoom allowing Box to be the default content layer for all Zoom Team Chat channels, which enables customers to store, create, and collaborate with content directly from a Zoom Team Chat channel.

Databarracks is pleased to announce that it has been accepted as a supplier on the G-Cloud 13 framework

LONDON, UK – November 18, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Databarracks provides Resilience and Cloud Services to public sector organisations including: Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy, Environment Agency, Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation.

James Watts, Managing Director of Databarracks comments: “The framework comes at a difficult time for government spending and procurement. Efficiency and value for money are critical. The benefits of shorter contracts and nimble SME suppliers can help reduce costs and keep public services delivering.

“The move to G-Cloud 13 has been one of the more significant iterations. G-Cloud 12 was extended multiple times to allow for the transition and the shift to the Crown Commercial Service Public Procurement Gateway.

“For all the good intentions behind G-Cloud, there have always been challenges. G-Cloud 13 has had a rocky start after launching without supplier transparency over the search process, which has rightly received backlash from the supplier community. That feature is promised to be reintroduced shortly. On the buyer side, it is vital they are well-informed about the changes and updates to the programme and new procurement gateway to make sure momentum does not stall between these frameworks.

“In our experience, since G-Cloud was first introduced, the biggest change in buyer interest has been in the hyperscale public clouds, specifically AWS and Microsoft Azure. In the early days of the platform buyers were reticent, but when the hyperscalers showed commitment and opened UK data centre regions there was a turning point. Since then, public cloud adoption in the public sector has rocketed.

“When using the public cloud, there is still a great deal of value to be gained by using specialist cloud service providers to get the most from these platforms.

“Interest has moved from Lots 1 & 2 for Cloud Hosting and Cloud Software to Lot 3 – Cloud Support. That means cloud design and architecture services, on-going DevOps and management. Cost optimisation, capacity and demand management will all be vital to the public sector during this iteration of G-Cloud.”

About Databarracks
Databarracks is the global leader in Public Cloud continuity.

In 2003, we launched one of the world’s first managed Backup services to bring indestructible resilience to mission critical data.

Today, we deliver award-winning IT resilience and continuity services. We help organisations get the most out of the cloud and protect their data, wherever it lives.

And we back this up with unbeatable support. There’s no such thing as ‘above and beyond’ for our engineers because they only work to one standard: to keep your systems running perfectly.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares Inc., a banking company in Texas, saves thousands of dollars in yearly data protection software renewal costs with NAKIVO Backup & Replication

Sparks, NV – November 18, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtual, and cloud environments, has announced today that Texas Peoples National Bancshares Inc. has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares provides a full range of commercial banking services to customers in the state of Texas. The company’s products and services include investments, financing, cards, insurance, remote banking, personal banking, and direct deposit.

Texas Peoples National Bancshares operates out of three sites with 1 physical server and 22 virtual machines. Virtual machines store the company’s critical data like documents, spreadsheets, and databases. The company runs financial applications to support teller functions, account opening, and instant issuing of debit cards. Virtual machines also run an email server, a telephone system, and collaboration applications. Maintaining uninterrupted access to critical data and applications that support the organization and their customers is of the utmost importance. Protecting data with the help of a VM backup solution ensures data availability and business continuity.

Previously, the company relied on a different VM backup solution for data availability. Recovery with the previous solution was slow, there were daily failed jobs or backup hangs. The main criteria for choosing a new solution were speed, efficiency, reliability, and cost.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication stood out from the competition due to the solution’s extensive functionality set and multiple deployment options. The solution can protect virtual, physical, cloud, and SaaS environments with incremental and application-aware backups. The solution provides complete visibility via a unified dashboard for all data protection activities and workloads. Moreover, deployment is easy and flexible with a range of options: installation on Windows/Linux, as a pre-configured virtual appliance, or on NAS.

“Installing and configuring NAKIVO Backup & Replication was a breeze. The web interface is simple, intuitive, and responsive. Since the solution offered integration with Synology NAS, we took advantage of this functionality, and we really enjoy the portability and unification of both hardware and software,” says Pat Watson, Vice President/CTO at Texas Peoples National Bancshares.

“Backing up our entire environment takes nearly four hours, while incremental backups take about 50 minutes,” says Pat. “We enjoy fully automated backups that reduce administrative complexity and time spent on data protection. We do not experience issues anymore with stuck or hung backups.”

“In the past, recovery was a long and exhausting process for us. With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we can recover entire VMs, files, and application objects directly from backups. Thus, we have minimized time for recovery dramatically,” says Pat.

“We also take advantage of backup copy functionality and VM replication. We keep an extra copy of our backups for archival purposes. And with VM replication, we always have a VM replica available for disaster recovery purposes,” says Pat.

“The simplicity, elegance, and complete functionality set is unmatched at the price point that NAKIVO provides its customers,” says Pat. “Our backups are portable, fast, and more reliable than ever before. NAKIVO Backup & Replication has saved us thousands of dollars in yearly renewal costs and eliminated countless hours we used to spend on maintaining our old solution,” says Pat. “With the previous solution, we struggled to complete offsite replication due to limited bandwidth between our sites. We no longer have this problem with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.”

About Texas Peoples National Bancshares Inc.
In 1988, a group of local businessmen formed Texas Peoples National Bancshares, Inc. (TPNB).

The assets and liabilities were acquired into a new wholly owned subsidiary of TPNB known as Peoples National Bank. PNB began to experience rapid growth as a result of a local board of directors with a commitment to serving the local community. PNB was the first local bank to offer the convenience of three locations to its customers. For more information, visit www.pbparis.com

READING, England – Nov. 17, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Redstor, the smart, cloud-first backup platform of choice for MSPs, today announced the availability of Backup for QuickBooks Online and QuickBooks Desktop, a service to protect and recover application data vital to small and medium-sized business (SMBs). Intuit’s QuickBooks is the market’s leading accounting software, supporting more than 8 million users worldwide. With its powerful performance and low cost, Redstor Backup for QuickBooks fills data protection gaps in the software, enabling MSPs to provide SMBs with a crucial safety net and open a new revenue stream with healthy margins.

“QuickBooks is the heart of SMBs but none of the product tiers include backup and recovery except the most expensive option,” said Rob Glass of Computer Systems Plus, a participant in Redstor’s Backup for QuickBooks beta program. “If a hacker gets in or a disgruntled employee releases malicious code, an SMB could lose months of financial data, tax and compliance details, employee records and more. Redstor eliminates this risk at a nominal cost, giving MSPs like us access to a huge market with a service that offers tremendous margins.”

Redstor options cover all QuickBooks pricing plans, including native recovery. MSPs can recover directly back to QuickBooks production and sandbox/developer environments. Redstor’s InstantData™ technology streams information in the most compatible form possible, so customers can recover and begin using this critical data in seconds versus hours or days, all while less vital files restore behind the scenes.

Additional highlights of Redstor Backup for QuickBooks include:

  • Easy Compliance: Enables businesses to meet standards such as IRS 4557 & SOC2. In highly regulated industries, an independent backup and recovery platform provides the easiest, most cost effective way to meet compliance.
  • Single Interface: One interface protects and manages all data sources, from native infrastructure (Azure and AWS) to major SaaS offerings like Microsoft 365 and Salesforce. It even covers legacy backup such as on premise servers and company laptops.
  • Fast Fixes: With multiple people using QuickBooks Online, data can be changed simultaneously, introducing errors. Redstor not only gives admins a safety net, it provides instant, granular item restore to rapidly fix any issue.
  • Time and Money Savings: A common source of data loss are finance team changes to the production environment in QuickBooks. With Redstor, admins can use real backup data in their sandbox to verify and validate any changes before pushing them into production.
  • Automated Processes: QuickBooks operates on a shared responsibility model that protects users from incidents such as platform outages, but not ransomware, malicious or accidental data deletion/loss. Automatic and on-demand backup processes make sure all bases are covered.
  • Simplicity and Low Cost of Ownership: QuickBooks’ only backup and data restoration requires users to provide and manage external storage. Redstor’s all-in-one solution eliminates that operational and cost burden, with experts overseeing every step of the journey.

“This solves a major SMB issue while creating new revenue for MSPs at a price point that assures maximum profitability,” said Redstor Product Manager, Dan Boddington. “Downtime means lost revenue. Slow recovery means missed opportunity. Missing data ruins reputations. With Redstor Backup for QuickBooks, this vital business data is safe and quickly recoverable, and the profits stay with our MSPs.”

About Redstor
Redstor offers MSPs the smartest backup and recovery platform along with leading sales, marketing and technical support. Built for the cloud and fast to scale, the Redstor platform unifies the protection of cloud infrastructure, SaaS business applications and on-prem data via a single app (RedApp), delivering market-leading revenue retention, bigger margins and simple pricing to MSPs.

Breakthrough streaming technology offers instant data access and mobility, bringing users back in seconds after outages, whilst unlocking all the benefits of a cloud-first model. Artificial intelligence (AI) polices backups to identify and isolate malware for safe restores. With no hardware requirements and setup times of under 60 seconds, Redstor is purpose-built for the MSP growth agenda.

Latest release leverages flash, cloud-native monitoring, easy Veeam and vCloud integration for increased performance, efficiency and adaptability

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Nov. 17, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Scality announced today RING9 — the ninth generation of its leading RING scale-out file and object storage software — a solution that allows IT teams to build and run a modern hybrid-cloud data storage infrastructure with higher performance and efficiency.

RING9 is built on major investments in Scality’s flagship RING solution that enables IT teams to:

  • Fully leverage flash media through tiering and dynamic data protection policies
  • Modernize monitoring stack with Prometheus tools and APIs
  • Streamline integration with API extensions to ecosystem partners such as Veeam and VMware Cloud Director (VCD)

With these new capabilities, RING9 further enhances and simplifies scale-out file and object storage for enterprises building private and hybrid cloud storage services with comprehensive AWS S3 and IAM compatibility.

Click to Tweet: @Scality RING9 adds performance, efficiency to #HybridCloud #DataStorage: bit.ly/3GjUd4m

“Scality is a strategic object storage provider we trust to house our customer’s data. Over the last several years, we’ve partnered closely with Scality to build a scalable and sovereign cloud service,” explained Laurent Cheyssial, CTO at Jaguar Network. “With the comprehensive AWS-compatible S3 API and user security management in RING9, we now have the flexibility to offer our customers cloud backup services for a wide variety of workloads while keeping data secure.”

“Scality continues to innovate in scale-out object and file storage as evidenced by its new multi-tiering capability. This new feature enables high performance with low-latency flash and increases storage efficiency with tiering as data ages. This will improve usages such as backups and medical imaging, as well as new latency-sensitive workloads in media by automatically optimizing data placement,” said Randy Kerns, senior strategist and analyst at Evaluator Group.

Building on proven world-class enterprise and service provider deployments since 2010, RING9 enhancements are focused on:

High performance and storage efficiency: RING9 augments its use of the latest generations of flash media through the Storage Accelerator (SA), a powerful multi-level tiering capability. This enables dynamic tiering and data protection policies for ultra-fast IO to hot storage tiers via low-latency NVMe flash — with automated movement of data to increasingly more cost-effective tiers on lower-cost flash, such as quad-level cell (QLC), or on traditional hard disk drives (HDD). These enhancements expand the addressable markets and use cases for RING9, and enable IT teams to address Tier 1, latency-sensitive workloads in media streaming, medical imaging and big data analytics that previously required a separate resource.

Modern stack administration: RING9 brings monitoring into the modern cloud-native data center, with the integration of a new stack based on Prometheus and AlertManager, a new comprehensive UI dashboard with user actionable alerting. In addition, the Scality Cloud Monitor now enhances remote monitoring and observability for both customers and Scality’s premium Scale Care Services support offerings.

Ecosystem integration: RING9 streamlines the integration of its ecosystem partner products into a customer’s architecture, with support for:

  • New APIs for enhanced monitoring, reporting and data placement in solutions from ecosystem partners such as Veeam and others
  • Enhanced VMware vCloud (vCD) integration, including production use in existing real-world service provider deployments
  • More comprehensive AWS IAM-compatible bucket policies to tighten security and access control

Paul Speciale, chief marketing officer at Scality, said: “As IT teams embrace the modern stack architecture, they need solutions that eliminate challenges in enterprise data management and storage in the hybrid cloud. Scality RING9 represents a major step change for the entire storage industry. Users gain improvements in storage efficiency through internal flash-to-disk tiering and dynamic data protection policies. For modern cloud-based data centers, RING9 fits naturally into the monitoring and observability ecosystem with support for Prometheus and Elastic Cloud. RING9 expands the addressable market and use-case workloads for RING further into the high-performance arena.”

Publication Recognizes Asigra Tigris Data Protection with Advanced CDR Capabilities

TORONTO, ON – November 16, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Asigra Inc., a leader in ultra-secure backup and recovery, is announcing that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has chosen Asigra as a Finalist for the 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. CRN recognized Asigra for the company’s Tigris Data Protection software in the Data Protection Software category.

This annual award program celebrates innovative vendors in the IT channel across 38 different technology categories, in critical business areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. The selection process for this year’s winners was overseen by a panel of CRN editors and is based on a review of hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria. These include key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and best fit with customer and solution provider needs.

Asigra Tigris Data Protection provides advanced protection against ransomware with a six-layer security stack designed to fight the new breeds of ransomware. Modern attacks target backups and easily penetrate legacy backup security strategies like immutability and air-gapping. Today’s ransomware attacks utilize sleeper / trojan-horse attacks that employ dormant ransomware or deeply embedded malware which easily bypasses endpoint security. The files along with the hidden malware is then simply backed up into the immutable and air-gapped backup repositories. The malware lies in wait on the network for weeks or months before triggering the encryption attack. Unfortunately, when the response team reaches for their last line of defense, their backups, they find that they are infected also.

Asigra Tigris is the only backup solution utilizing both bidirectional antimalware scanning and bidirectional CDR scanning to stop the sleeper attacks that routinely penetrate immutable and air-gapped storage. Additionally, Tigris protects against credential theft which allows attackers to delete immutable storage by simply changing data retention periods from years to minutes, just prior to network encryption. DeepMFA requires biometric authentication and multi-person authorization for any destructive actions.

“Our CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize those technology vendors that are making the biggest impacts in digital transformation for solutions providers with unique, cutting-edge products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “It is my pleasure to congratulate each and every one of our 2022 CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We’re delighted to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”

“Now globally deployed throughout the Asigra partner ecosystem, Tigris Data Protection software has been acclaimed as the industry’s most comprehensive backup security platform, setting the bar in this category,” said Eric Simmons, CEO, Asigra. “We applaud our development team for their excellent work in helping businesses of every size defend against the widest range of ransomware variants targeting backup data.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at crn.com/techinnovators

Nasuni for Azure Blob Storage delivers the best choice for storing, protecting and accessing files

BOSTON, MA – November 16, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services and Microsoft Gold partner, is simplifying the process for enterprises to migrate data into cloud-native file data services in Azure Blob Storage as Microsoft prepares to end support for StorSimple on Dec. 31, 2022. Nasuni, a premier MS Azure partner, is available in the Azure Customer Portal and counts toward Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitments (MACC).

“As end-of-life approaches for Microsoft Azure StorSimple, Nasuni is ready to help organizations move their data into a cloud-native service that provides the scalability and performance on which customers have depended,” said Jason DePardo, vice president of customer success at Nasuni. “But Nasuni provides much more than just scalable storage. Customers also get automatic backup and disaster recovery (DR), global file sharing, a global lock and multi-cloud access. It’s a modern file storage solution for modern enterprises, and migration from StorSimple is easy and fast.”

Nasuni has migrated several StorSimple customers already this year, including AIMCO, Pruitt Health, Blackmores, BJ’s and TGI Fridays. TGI Fridays — who chose Nasuni to replace StorSimple in anticipation of the end of Microsoft support — experienced a painless migration without heavy users noticing a difference. Additionally, because Nasuni stores data so efficiently, the company saved 20% on Azure cloud costs.

“You can sell the capabilities and cost savings, but in terms of how to make the changes and actually run the platform, IT teams might be out of their element,” said Michael Oehlert, infrastructure team lead at TGI Fridays. “The Nasuni team was instrumental in terms of getting this done without anyone noticing. They always knew what was going on and how to make it work.”

The Nasuni File Data Platform, backed by low-cost Azure Blob object storage, is a customer-managed, highly available, enterprise-grade file service. Additionally, like StorSimple, it provides an easy-to-manage solution for unlimited capacity and massive scalability with excellent performance. Nasuni can accomplish this, plus offer additional, powerful capabilities without increasing costs over StorSimple. Nasuni can also be deployed fully in Azure or as a hybrid cloud deployment with on-premises caching for high-performance file access in any location.

These additional capabilities include:

  • Multi-Site Access: Nasuni enables StorSimple customers to share their data with users across multiple locations, which are able to store, access, share, and synchronize files across an unlimited number of users and sites.
  • Unlimited Capacity for File Shares: Unlike StorSimple, the Nasuni File Data Platform keeps all files and file changes in Azure Blob storage, so file shares can be any size.
  • Automatic Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) with Fast Restore: Using a patented feature called “Continuous File Versioning®,” Nasuni stores all file changes in Azure Blob storage, which automates data protection and eliminates the need for a separate investment in backup software and hardware. Recovery is also fast, enabling IT to restore lost files or even entire volumes in just minutes.
  • Global File Sharing with a Global Lock: People from around the globe can collaborate on even very large files, with a global lock that ensures version control.
  • Multi-Cloud Support: Nasuni can also leverage Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and any other cloud that provides an object store.

Migration is fast and simple. Nasuni’s professional service teams and certified partners can rapidly migrate StorSimple data into Azure (or other) object storage without interrupting ongoing operations or impeding access. Nasuni provides a full range of offerings ranging from assisted to full migration, using state-of-the-art procedures and tools.

With end-of-life for StorSimple quickly approaching, Microsoft is encouraging customers to establish migration plans. For more information on how Nasuni can help, check out our StorSimple resource page — https://info.nasuni.com/storsimple-kit

Part of Rubrik Security Cloud, latest release increases cyber preparedness with simulated and live recovery capabilities

PALO ALTO, Calif., November 16, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, today announced Rubrik Cyber Recovery to help organizations improve their cyber readiness and recover faster with confidence. Available as part of Rubrik Security Cloud, Rubrik Cyber Recovery delivers two new capabilities to help organizations better prepare for attacks and minimize operational downtime. It provides a simple way to test, validate, and document the success of an organization’s cyber recovery plans. It also provides businesses a way to instantly recover the last known clean copy of data into production while performing forensic investigations out-of-band in an isolated recovery environment.

Organizations are struggling to prepare for and respond to increasingly inevitable ransomware attacks and other cyber incidents. According to the inaugural State of Data Security Report from Rubrik Zero Labs, 92% of global IT and Security leaders are concerned they are unable to maintain business continuity during an attack. In addition, the report found that a third of boards have little to no confidence in their organization’s ability to recover critical data and business applications in the event of a cyberattack. Organizations today need a simple way to quickly test recovery plans and investigate threats without delaying the restoration of business critical operations.

“It’s essential that we have confidence in our data recovery plan,” said Dan Gallivan, Director of IT at Payette, an award-winning architecture firm. “With Rubrik, we can now prepare, verify our preparation with auditors, and safely recover in the event of a cyberattack. This peace of mind is critical not just for our IT and Security teams, but the organization as a whole.”

Rubrik Cyber Recovery empowers IT and Security teams to:

  • Validate Whether Cyber Recovery Plans Will Work: Rubrik Cyber Recovery enables customers to easily test, validate, and document the success of their cyber recovery plans while tracking performance metrics to ensure their organization is prepared to meet recovery SLAs. Customers can test whether their recovery playbook works, including sequence, timing, and failure points. They can download reports about recovery performance on-demand to prove that regular testing of cyber recovery capabilities is taking place.
  • Clone Backup Snapshots For Faster Security Testing: Rubrik Cyber Recovery enables organizations to assess cyber readiness faster through the ability to quickly clone snapshots into isolated environments. This allows customers to perform destructive tests more easily, thereby enhancing their organization’s cyber readiness.
  • Conduct Forensic Investigations in Parallel to Recovery: Rubrik Cyber Recovery allows organizations to conduct forensic investigations on infected snapshots in isolated environments while they restore business continuity quickly using a last known good snapshot.

“IT and security teams are faced with increasing pressure to ensure they can recover from a cyberattack, and yet boards and leadership teams lack confidence in their ability to do so,” said Dan Rogers, President of Rubrik. “Rubrik Cyber Recovery can help boost board and leadership confidence by not only enabling organizations to achieve safer, predictable recovery from cyber events, but also enabling IT and Security teams to prove preparedness. These advancements in Rubrik Security Cloud continue to strengthen customers’ defenses in securing their data.”

Extending Data Observability Support to the Cloud
Rubrik also announced today both Ransomware Monitoring & Investigation and Sensitive Data Monitoring & Management will support Microsoft OneDrive and SharePoint, NAS Cloud Direct, and Azure Virtual Machines. As a result, organizations can gain more visibility into ransomware impact and sensitive data exposure within high-risk, cloud-based workloads. Rubrik continues to expand its capabilities to even more cloud workloads, helping customers protect all of their data across the enterprise, cloud, and SaaS.

Register for Rubrik Winter Release 2022 virtual event to learn more, with the keynote taking place today, Wednesday, November 16 at 10 a.m. PST / 1 p.m. EST. Keynote and breakout sessions will also be available on-demand.

Customers who migrate to Wasabi hot cloud storage can save up to 80% on storage costs compared to Amazon S3, Azure, and Google Cloud

BOSTON, MA — November 15, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today introduced Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager, the industry’s most affordable and highest performing cloud migration tool that allows businesses globally to move their data out of expensive hyperscale cloud environments like AWS S3 to Wasabi without egress fees or downtime. It also delivers seamless replication and synchronization of data between different Wasabi regions to reduce latency, meet compliance requirements, and foster best practices for data backup and recovery. Customers benefit from the flexibility of shifting data between clouds at any time, the ability to protect copies of data in different regions while increasing their cloud data performance and response time, and reducing overall storage costs.

Skyrocketing cloud prices and the current economic climate are leading many businesses to tighten their budgets and look for more affordable cloud storage solutions. However, exorbitant costs associated with cloud-to-cloud migration, like egress and data retrieval fees, and technical infrastructure challenges to migrate data back on premise and then to a new cloud, force many to stay locked into their current vendor.

Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager bypasses the high costs and technical hurdles associated with cloud-to-cloud migration. It uses private network connections to migrate data from AWS, Azure, GCP, and other S3 compliant storage directly to Wasabi. This reduces egress costs from those providers, avoids internet latency and bottlenecks, and provides fast and predictable performance that lets users rapidly move massive datasets. Data is transferred with no downtime, enabling customers to continue putting data into their original cloud quickly, and without stopping the data transfer. Meanwhile, the bucket replication feature allows customers to copy objects from a storage bucket in a specific Wasabi region to a different bucket in another Wasabi storage region. This is ideal for adding an extra layer of data protection, meeting compliance and sovereignty requirements, or minimizing latency.

Wasabi hot cloud storage is significantly less expensive and markedly faster than AWS S3 and similar providers, meaning it can be universally applied to any storage use case such as active archiving, backup, disaster recovery, storage for a custom application (active data), and more. At 1/5th the cost of hyperscalers, with no fees for egress or API requests and no vendor lock-in, businesses are able to securely and affordably store all of their data and access it the moment they need to without complex pricing tiers. Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager helps users take advantage of lower-cost storage as quickly as possible and start saving money right away.

“Wasabi’s singular focus is to deliver the best cloud storage in the world, and Cloud Sync Manager marks the next step in our mission,” said David Boland, vice president of cloud strategy at Wasabi Technologies. “Companies in the past may have wanted to leave their cloud provider, but couldn’t afford to. Now, Wasabi Cloud Sync Manager allows customers to switch to the more affordable and higher performing Wasabi hot cloud storage for just pennies per GB, depending on the data source and geographical region, and start saving money immediately.”

Latest data protection capabilities help accelerate customer’s cloud journey with 1-click support for Azure Government Cloud, enhanced data security with NIAP Certification Readiness and Cross-Cloud mobility options

BOSTON, MA – November 15, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — HYCU, Inc., the world’s fastest-growing multi-cloud data protection as a service company, today announced new functionality within its HYCU Protégé platform to accelerate customers’ cloud mobility with the addition of new support for Azure Government Cloud and cross-cloud migration. The additions provide customers the ability to do 1-click spin-up of Applications onto Azure Gov Cloud, protect data on commercial and Government clouds and spin down the data from Gov Cloud onto local on-prem infrastructure. In addition, with new security and cross-cloud migration capabilities, customers have a cost-effective and efficient platform to support data mobility from on-premises environments to public clouds and within public clouds.

With the additional complexity that comes with increased adoption of hybrid and multi-cloud architectures, the ability to easily move data between infrastructure platforms without risking data loss is critical. Organizations choose these infrastructures to gain flexibility and agility, but without the ability to safely move workloads and data, organizations are unable to maximize the value of their investments in hybrid and multi-cloud and risk being negatively impacted by data loss.

“It has been exciting to see Federal agencies, among many of our customers, ramp up the use of Cloud technologies and accelerate their journey to the public cloud,” said HYCU Founder and CEO Simon Taylor. “HYCU is excited to announce true, cloud-native support for Azure Government Cloud as well as additional flexibility and choice. The HYCU Protégé platform updates that we are announcing not only allow customers 1-click migration to Azure Gov Cloud, but also allow them to do 1-click protection of their applications and data on Azure Gov Cloud. With enhanced security and mobility features for cross-cloud migration, we at HYCU believe in building purpose-built solutions that our customers can use to optimize their data protection needs regardless of cloud platform, and this is yet one more significant proof point in moving that forward.”

The latest updates to the HYCU Protégé platform provide customers with additional data protection capabilities designed to deliver flexibility and choice for hybrid and multi-cloud customers.

Additional functionality includes:

  • Mobility and Protection of Workloads on Azure Government Cloud: Customers can now rest assured that their data on Azure Gov Cloud can be backed up, restored to different regions, and even perform DR to a different region with Azure Gov. All this can be done safely within their own control, without having to worry about a third-party having access to their data.
  • Disaster recovery to AWS: Customers can now leverage HYCU Protégé to achieve cost-effective disaster recovery into AWS.  Whether leveraging AWS as a backup target or protecting AWS native workloads, HYCU Protégé now enables customers to quickly failover into AWS and continue business operations without interruption.  Additionally, HYCU Protégé minimizes infrastructure cost in AWS with its on-demand disaster recovery, only spinning up those resources when needed.
  • Cross-cloud restore and recovery: Customers can now protect data onto any S3 compatible cost-efficient public storage provider, like Wasabi, and DR to any public cloud of their choice. This allows them to eliminate the need to provide DR functionality only for a small dataset, i.e., allows for rapid recovery across the entire data set when needed.
  • Expanded options for Edge and Remote Office Backup: Now HYCU allows customers to half their infrastructure required in the edge and remote office locations by eliminating the need for full data protection infrastructure in every one of those locations and leveraging the public cloud storage targets.
  • Enhanced Security with Strictest Regulations: With NIAP Certification, HYCU Protégé meets the stringent certification requirements mandated by US Federal procurement requirements (CNSSP 11) for use in U.S. National Security Systems (NSS). Customers have the peace of mind that sensitive information has the appropriate measures in place to keep data secure.
  • New integrations: The latest update provides customers additional flexibility by expanding supported technology integrations to include Scality S3 WORM, Nutanix AOS 6.5 LTS, Nutanix Objects 3.5 and Qstar v7.  The addition of secure storage options and backup targets provides customers with additional optionality to bolster their data protection and ransomware preparedness.

This announcement comes on the heels of HYCU’s Series B funding in June 2022 which accelerated investment in delivering innovative data protection solutions, as well as the August launch of a free tier of HYCU Protégé for AWS which serves to make data protection simple and accessible to the most agile development teams.
