Acquiring new customers amidst growing competition and dealing with sophisticated security threats cited as their greatest challenges

Miami, FL – March 30, 2023 — / / — Kaseya, the leading global provider of unified IT management and security software for managed service providers (MSPs), small to mid-size businesses (SMBs) and mid-market enterprises (MMEs), released today its 2023 MSP Benchmark Report, which surveyed more than 1,000 managed services providers (MSPs) from the Americas, Europe, Middle East, Africa and the APAC region. The report, which surveyed both technicians and executives, provides insights into how MSPs streamline processes to provide cost-effective IT support and infrastructure management to SMBs.

The key findings centered around automation, cybersecurity and integration:

  • About 90% of respondents hailed automation as a crucial technology for their business because it improves efficiency, allows them to take on more clients and generates more revenue by automating common processes like endpoint management, monitoring, patching, ticket resolution and even cybersecurity.
  • More than half of the executive (64%) and technician (54%) respondents picked automation, including auto-remediation of tickets, as their top RMM feature.
  • In year-over-year comparison, there is 15% jump in respondents who chose cybersecurity as the top IT challenge their clients expect to face this year.
  • About 65% of respondents said most, or all, of their clients have asked for cybersecurity advice.
  • 90% of respondents agree that integration between core applications is critical to their business. It helps them streamline their processes, reduce duplication of efforts and automate repetitive tasks.

“This report drives home the importance of automation and integration to make MSPs more productive, efficient and profitable,” said Mike Puglia, chief strategy officer and general manager of security products, Kaseya. “Cybersecurity will continue to be a pressing issue, and MSPs will need to be up-to-speed on their security offerings to keep pace with SMB demand.”

Poor integration remains a core problem.
Lack of integration between solutions continues to hinder daily operations and productivity. In the survey, 39% of respondents reported that the biggest obstacle to business growth is the inability of technicians to maximize software usage. About 63% of executives surveyed said that integration enabled them to take on more clients and expand their business, with 54% saying fewer technicians were needed to manage the workload. Almost half, 49% of the executives, also said integration helped them cut costs. Not surprising, about 60% of both executives and technicians surveyed are dissatisfied or neutral when it comes to work-life balance. Managing everyday mundane tasks causes them to struggle with getting their workload under control and even end up experiencing acute burnout. This can be alleviated by automating some of those mundane tasks.

Cybersecurity drives growth.
The top five services that respondents intend to offer in 2023 fall under the cybersecurity umbrella, covering identity and access management, security awareness training and Dark Web monitoring. With cybercrime exploding, the percentage of respondents who back up their customers’ SaaS applications, such as Microsoft 365, Google Workspace or Salesforce, increased to 83% from 78% in 2022. About one-third, 32% of the respondents, evaluate their threat landscape monthly and 35% evaluate quarterly, while only 11% do so annually, and a mere 1% never do so. Technician respondents said that enhanced security services recorded the most growth in the last 12 months; executives reported it as second place. (For executives, subscription-based managed services took the top spot, with business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) service featured among the top four service categories.)

MSPs anticipate these challenges.
The primary challenges MSPs anticipate are acquiring more customers as the MSP space intensifies (35% of executives) and dealing with advanced and sophisticated security threats (21% percent of technicians). Supply chain issues are leveling off – the percentage of respondents who said supply chain impact is significant dropped from 35% to 28% in 2023.

Let’s talk about break-fix, co-managed IT and M&A.
More than half of the technician respondents, 51%, reported break-fix as their most time-consuming activity. However, it is only the third most lucrative revenue stream according to executive respondents (39%). Subscription-based managed services is the top revenue generator according to 68% of executive participants and the second most time-consuming activity according to 43% of technicians. When it comes to what drives the biggest gain the break-fix model, executives cited hardware problems, while technicians said for them, it’s access control.

About a third, 34%, of the respondents said they get between 1 and 25 percent of their revenue from co-managed IT services. Another 29% said they get between 26 and 50 percent of their revenue from it.

About 51% of the respondents are keen to participate in some form of M&A activity. Of this group, about 14% said it is their primary growth strategy. Last year, only 36% of the respondents were bullish on it.

This survey sought viewpoints from both MSP executives and MSP technicians. Of the respondents, executives comprised 37% of the pool while technicians made up the remaining 63%. MSP owners, partners, vice presidents and directors came under the executive group while the rest were grouped as technicians.

Enterprise Strategy Group Report Identifies SaaS Application Backup Disconnects

TORONTO, ON – March 29, 2023 — / / — Asigra Inc., a leader in ultra-secure backup and recovery, today highlighted the findings of a report by the Enterprise Strategy Group called SaaS Data Protection: A Work in Progress.” The report surveyed IT professionals at medium to large enterprises familiar and/or responsible for SaaS data protection technology decisions and provides insights on data protection and production technologies that may leverage cloud services as part of the solutions offered.

SaaS applications provide businesses with the convenience of accessing software over the internet, eliminating the need for expensive hardware and IT personnel to manage the software and data. For years, there has been an ongoing shift to SaaS apps as they also provide businesses with improved collaboration, productivity and the flexibility to scale up or down as their needs require, which is important for medium and large organizations in terms of business agility. However, one major oversight for many thousands of SaaS apps now on the market is their lack of business-class data protection.

This situation is made clear in the vast majority of SaaS vendor terms of service which make statements like “We recommend that you regularly backup the content and data you store on the services or use third-party apps and services (Microsoft Support:” or “Archive your content frequently. You are responsible for any lost or unrecoverable content. You must provide all required and appropriate warning, information and disclosures. Intuit is not responsible for any of your content you submit through the services (

The Enterprise Strategy Group report was conducted across mid- to large enterprise IT professionals in North America. The quantitative web-based survey received 398 completed surveys back from which the report was generated. Some of the more notable findings are:

The Top 5 Ways Users Lost Their SaaS Data – Service outage/unavailability ranked number one, followed by malicious deletion from a cyberattack, accidental deletion, account closure and insufficient or a deficient backup mechanism.
The Top 5 Challenges to Properly Protecting SaaS Data – Security/privacy concerns, data loss concerns, backup solutions not integrating into enough SaaS applications, volume of data to be protected too high for the current backup solution to protect, and concerns that IT staff will be giving up too much control to the SaaS vendor.
The SaaS Backup Disconnect Persists – 33% of SaaS application users still rely on the SaaS vendor as of 2022 to protect the organization’s data, down from 37% in 2019. While this number has decreased over the past several years, 33% is still a concerning percentage that puts organizations at risk.
SaaS Applications Not Immune to Data Loss – 50% of SaaS users that did not implement anything to backup their data, experienced data loss or corruption in the last 12 months, while the other 50% of those who did backup their SaaS applications were able to recover their data.
Top Selection Requirements for SaaS-based Data Protection Vendors – Security capabilities, speed of recovery, flexible recovery options, quality of solution development, and flexibility in selecting a cloud repository vendor/service or locale.

According to Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst and author of the report, “SaaS data protection is a top priority by a majority of organizations with budgets expected to increase. Funding the protection of a wide range of applications throughout an organization will be a team sport and application managers will be key to this effort.”

“As more businesses rely on SaaS applications for critical business operations, it’s imperative that they prioritize the protection of these apps,” said Eric Simmons, CEO of Asigra. “With the increasing amount of data being generated, stored, and shared through these applications, it’s crucial to have a comprehensive backup and recovery solution like SaaSBACKUPSM in place, to to protect both the popular and more obscure applications. Companies that neglect this, risk losing critical information and suffering both costly downtime and reputational damage.”

Version 9.7 also adds HANA-specific automation and support for a variety of newer versions of Linux operating systems

SAN MATEO, CA – March 29, 2023 — / / — SIOS Technology Corp., an industry leader in application high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR), today announced the immediate availability of SIOS LifeKeeper version 9.7 clustering software with significant new capabilities for HA and DR protection for SAP HANA environments for enterprises, managed service providers and cloud service providers.

SIOS LifeKeeper v9.7 enables customers to deploy a multitarget high availability environment in which HANA operates on a primary node and, in the event of a failure or disaster, can failover to a secondary and/or a tertiary target node located in a different cloud Availability Zone or on-premises disaster recovery location. Failover can be configured to leverage highly efficient “takeover with handshake” capability that enables efficient switchover for near zero downtime maintenance.

Unlike other clustering solutions, SIOS LifeKeeper monitors the health of the entire SAP HANA instance stack and communicates with all associated cluster nodes.

Advanced automation eliminates the time-consuming, error prone scripting that can make the intrinsically complex process of HANA database failover unreliable. SIOS customers can be confident that SIOS LifeKeeper will automatically and reliably failover their HANA database, enabling them to restore operations with equal ease.

Just as in a traditional two-node SIOS cluster, customers using the HANA Multitarget feature can use one of their cluster nodes as a read-enabled (active/active) secondary node for read-intensive tasks, enabling an optimized balance of workloads and improving the overall performance of the SAP HANA database.

“SIOS customers gain the peace of mind of knowing that in the event of a failure or disaster, they will not have to bother with complex scripting to protect their essential HANA database or to restore operations when the issue is resolved,” said Masahiro Arai, COO, SIOS Technology. “SIOS LifeKeeper will ensure their essential HANA database will resume operation quickly and reliably.”

“The SAP HANA database is a mission-critical workload for thousands of organizations around the world, whether they run on-premises, in the cloud, or a combination thereof. Ensuring the availability of the clusters that run SAP HANA is top priority, albeit not easy. SIOS LifeKeeper has been designed to take away a lot of the pain with ensuring SAP HANA uptime,” said Peter Rutten, Research Vice President, IDC.

“Protecting complex databases such as SAP HANA from downtime and disasters is critically important but typically requires time-consuming administration and complex scripting at a time when IT teams may be responding to a disaster event,” explained Christophe Bertrand, Practice Director, ESG. “By automating these steps, SIOS LifeKeeper removes both complexity and opportunity for human error in the process, which can improve data protection and recovery SLAs and associated costs/benefits.”

New features and capabilities in SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux V9.7, include:

  • HANA Multitarget Feature – Enables protection from local, site-wide and regional disasters; fast, reliable failover to target nodes in geographically separated locations. IT time savings through automation of highly manual, error prone administration steps; and fast recovery time – leverages takeover with handshake capability to speed failover process.
  • Added support for:
    • WebSphere MQ v9.3, RHEL v 9.0
    • SAP HANA on RHEL 8.6 and SLES 15 SP4
    • SAP HANA on S/4HANA 2022

Product Availability
SIOS LifeKeeper for Linux version 9.7.0 is generally available. Contact SIOS here for purchasing information.

Manufacturing Organizations Are Increasingly Trusting Their File Data and Its Protection to the Nasuni File Data Platform with Data under Management Growing by 243%

BOSTON, March 28, 2023 — / / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of file data services, today announced strong momentum within the manufacturing industry, with data under management growing by 243% since Q1 2021. In order to modernize operations and remain competitive, the manufacturing industry is accelerating its pace of digital transformation and its move to the cloud. This has resulted in increased demand for the Nasuni File Data Platform.

The manufacturing industry is immersing itself in the revolution to modernize its operations by embracing emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, digital twins, and the Internet of Things. The digitalization of production, assets, and data have emerged as critical necessities, and Gartner reports that 36% of manufacturers experience “above-average business value” from investments made toward this effort. As more information and data become digitalized, organizations are realizing they must seek solutions that enable them to break down silos and collaborate around data.

In addition, the Industry 4.0 revolution is creating an exponential data growth. This is causing manufacturers to become more heavily targeted by cyberattacks, like ransomware, with The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) reporting that in 2021 manufacturing represented 65% of industrial ransomware attacks. Furthermore, the industry as a whole was targeted six times more often than the second leading group (food and beverage), making the protection of data from advanced and persistent threats (APT) like ransomware, business-critical.

To solve these challenges, leading organizations including Alcoa, Hybrid Apparel, JSJ, Morton Salt, SAS International, Western Digital, and Yazaki are modernizing their storage infrastructure into a data services model with the Nasuni File Data Platform. Nasuni enables them to gain more business value from their IT investments, reduce storage costs by 60% over legacy storage, and recover from ransomware attacks in minutes. The platform works seamlessly with massive Dassault CATIA CAD (computer-aided design) files, Adobe InDesign, Siemens Teamcenter, Windows® File Copy, Linux® File Copy, and Robocopy®. Since the start of 2021, Nasuni has experienced a 66% growth in manufacturing customers. Today, Nasuni manufacturing customers are able to efficiently collaborate on, manage, and protect their critical data at more than 1,800 locations in 55 countries worldwide.

“Nasuni covered cloud storage, backup, ransomware, and more,” said Mark Valpreda, IT infrastructure consultant, Hybrid Apparel. “The whole solution of Nasuni on top of Google Cloud object storage saves us money, but what these savings don’t account for is that the solution gives me back the ability to sleep at night.”

Headquartered in California with offices in three main regions globally, Hybrid Apparel is a creative design and manufacturing firm that specializes in making licensed t-shirts for some of the world’s most recognizable brands. Their previous file storage system was a persistent headache with users needing to manually move files and folders when they ran out of capacity. Replication and recovery were also complex and unreliable. With the Nasuni File Data Platform deployed, Hybrid Apparel’s Adobe Creative files and other unstructured data, scale in Google Cloud object storage, while Nasuni Edge Appliances cache files locally for fast access. Backup, replication, and other technologies have been eliminated, as Nasuni delivers all of these capabilities and more in one cloud-native platform – all with significant cost savings. The full Hybrid Apparel case study can be found here.

Nasuni transforms legacy file infrastructure with a set of file data services that consolidates siloed information, provides 24/7 business continuity, optimizes user productivity, delivers game-changing business insights, and offers the ability to choose any or multiple cloud providers. Hybrid cloud technology is especially important in manufacturing as performance at the edge for collaborating on data around the globe is critical. Nasuni’s intelligent edge caching enables manufacturers to leverage the power of cloud object storage while maintaining local high performance.

To learn more about how Nasuni is enabling manufacturers including AIXTRON, Cooley Group, Hybrid Apparel, JSJ, SAS International, Sound United, and Western Digital to reduce file storage costs, improve collaboration, and enhance resiliency from disasters and cybercrimes, please read our customer case studies.

Nearly half of consumers said they would stop buying from companies willfully causing environmental damage by failing to control how much unneeded data they are storing

SANTA CLARA, CA – March 28, 2023 — / / — Veritas Technologies, the leader in secure multi-cloud data management, today announced new research that indicates half of consumers (49%) think it’s the responsibility of the organizations that store their information online to delete it when it’s no longer needed. They’re also prepared to vote with their feet if businesses don’t cut back on data-related pollution: nearly half (47%) said they would stop buying from a company if they knew it was willfully causing environmental damage by failing to control how much unnecessary or unwanted data it is storing.

The research, which polled 13,000 consumers around the world, also found that nearly half (46%) said it concerns them that 2% of global energy-related pollution emissions are caused by data centers. In response, three-fifths (59%) said they would like to see more focus from organizations on controlling the negative impact of online data storage on the environment. This could include organizations encouraging their customers to close unused or inactive accounts and guidance on deleting obsolete information they no longer need or want.

Rags Srinivasan, chief sustainability officer at Veritas Technologies, said: “Beyond the costs of storing data, the hidden costs of its environmental impact should be at the top of every business leader’s agenda. Data centers run 24 hours a day and by 2030 are expected to use as much as 8% of all electricity on the planet. It’s easy to forget that data centers are mostly fossil fuel-powered and generate about the same amount of CO2 as the airline industry.”

The new research also found that half (51%) of consumers said it concerns them that online data storage wastes energy and produces environmental pollution when, on average, half of the data enterprises store is redundant, obsolete or trivial (ROT) and another 35% is “dark” with unknown value, that according to separate Veritas research in which IT decision makers reported the percentages of ROT, dark and business critical data within their organizations.

Srinivasan added: “Organizations should not underestimate the environmental impact of poor data management practices, even if they are outsourcing their storage to public cloud providers. Many consumers feel passionately about reducing their carbon footprints, but the average organization is still causing more pollution by storing data they know is not needed than data they believe to be useful—on average, just 15% of data is business critical. With half of customers saying they would stop buying from companies that fail get a grip on the challenge, the risk for both businesses and the environment of not identifying and eliminating unneeded data is too great to ignore any longer.”

Survey Methodology
The survey, conducted by 3Gem on behalf of Veritas, polled 13,000 consumers across Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, the UAE, the UK and the USA between February 1-16, 2023.

Growing incidents, evolving workforce patterns and economic uncertainty highlight the need for better processes, training and technology

Minneapolis, MN — March 28, 2023 — / / — Code42 Software, Inc., the Insider Risk Management (IRM) leader, today released its Annual Data Exposure Report (DER) for 2023. The study, conducted by independent enterprise technology market research expert Vanson Bourne, found that Insider Risk is emerging as one of the most challenging threats to detect, mitigate and manage. Although more than 72% of companies indicate they have an IRM program in place, the same companies experienced a year-over-year increase in data loss incidents of 32%, and 71% expect data loss from insider events to increase in the next 12 months. With insider incidents costing organizations $16M per incident on average, and CISOs stating that Insider Risks are the most challenging type of threat to detect, the report is a clear call to action for the security industry to ‘do better’ and help professionals solve this challenge.

“Data loss from insiders is not a new problem but it has become more complex. Our past DER research has focused on the key drivers of Insider Risk like workforce turnover and cloud adoption. This year, our goal was to understand the specific challenges security teams face when building and maintaining Insider Risk programs,” said Joe Payne, Code42 president and CEO. “The research reveals that both detection of and response to insider events have become more challenging. Organizations need to re-evaluate their approach to Insider Risk to ensure the technology and programs in place are effective, and that they drive cultures where employees make safer and smarter decisions about data. At Code42, we are focused on partnering with our customers to help them achieve this level of maturity.”

Insider Risk is a cultural issue, not just a cybersecurity one
When compared with data from our last report, the impact of Insider Risk is being felt across an organization and is no longer limited to the cybersecurity team. 86% of respondents say an insider event would impact company culture, compared with 72% from the year prior. Similarly, impacts around employee acquisition/retention increased from 72% to 79%. This indicates that Insider Risk is an issue that is deeply intertwined with a company’s culture and has a significant impact on the business.

The study also found:

  • Respondents say there would be a major or moderate impact on revenue (88%) and reputation (88%) following an Insider Risk event.
  • When asked about the types of Insider Risk they’re most concerned about, respondents rank accidental as number one, followed by malicious and negligent.
  • Respondents concerned with accidental events increased year-over-year while those concerned with negligent events decreased.

Insider Risk is a top concern for CISOs
CISOs are hyper aware of the growing challenges associated with managing Insider Risk, with over four in five (82%) CISOs indicating that data loss from insiders is a problem for their company. With 76% of CISOs anticipating data loss from insider events to increase at their company in the next 12 months, many are re-evaluating the current approaches, technologies and processes they have in place.

The study found:

  • 79% of CISOs feel they could lose their job from an unaddressed insider breach due to the impact it would have on corporate culture, reputation and financial standings.
  • CISOs ranked Insider Risk (27%) as the most difficult type of threat to detect at their company, placing it above cloud data exposures (26%) and malware/ransomware (22%).
  • Around four out of five (79%) CISOs do not feel the leadership team (board, C-suite) places enough attention on data loss from insiders.

Effectively managing Insider Risk requires the right technology and budget
While it’s promising to see that more than 70% of companies have an IRM program in place, 85% of companies note they still face technology and visibility challenges when it comes to protecting against exploitation by insiders, suggesting that the programs in place are immature and ineffective.

The study also found:

  • Only 19% of companies’ global cybersecurity budget is dedicated to detecting, investigating, responding and mitigating Insider Risk despite it being the hardest threat to detect.
  • Current IRM budgets are likely insufficient as 69% indicate that their budget for Insider Risk Management will increase over the next year.
  • Companies are leveraging multiple technologies to protect and manage Insider Risk – with the majority (90%) using a combination of IRM, DLP, CASB and UEBA to protect data from exfiltration by insiders.

As the need for data security training increases, the quality of trainings matters just as much as the frequency of trainings
The frequency of cybersecurity training has increased over time with 30% of companies now conducting training weekly compared with 22% in our last report. However, the data indicates that frequency alone is not effective in building resilience to Insider Risk. The quality of training is equally important and organizations must find a way to balance the two.

The study found:

  • The majority (93%) of CISOs agree that the new hybrid-remote workforce has increased the need for data security training in their company.
  • Those organizations conducting training weekly are more likely to say a complete overhaul is needed than those conducting it monthly (22% vs. 10% respectively).
  • The companies conducting monthly security training dropped from 32% to 27% year over year, with data indicating that more organizations are providing weekly training.

  • Barracuda international survey finds 73% of organizations experienced a successful ransomware attack in 2022 — 38% were hit more than once.
  • 42% of those hit three times or more paid the ransom to restore encrypted data — compared to 31% of victims hit just once.
  • 69% of ransomware attacks began with an email.
  • 27% of organizations feel underprepared to tackle ransomware.

CAMPBELL, CA – March 28, 2023 — / / — Barracuda Networks, Inc., a trusted partner and leading provider of cloud-first security solutions, today published its 2023 Ransomware Insights report, which shows that 73% of the organizations surveyed report being hit with at least one successful ransomware attack in 2022 — and 38% say they were hit twice or more. The organizations that were hit multiple times were more likely to say they’d paid the ransom — 42% of those hit three times or more paid the ransom to restore encrypted data, compared to 31% of victims of a single attack. They were also less likely to use a data backup system to help them recover.

The survey, conducted by independent research firm Vanson Bourne and commissioned by Barracuda, questioned IT professionals from frontline to the most senior roles at companies with 100 to 2,500 employees, across a range of industries in the U.S. and EMEA and APAC countries.

There were significant variations in the industries targeted by ransomware. For example, 98% of consumer services and 85% of energy, oil/gas, and utility organizations experienced at least one ransomware attack. The energy, oil/gas, and utility industry was also the most likely, at 53%, to report two or more successful ransomware incidents.

The findings show that for 69% of organizations, the ransomware attack started with a malicious email, such as a phishing email designed to steal credentials that would allow the attackers to breach the network. Web applications and traffic are in second place and represent an area of growing risk as part of an ever-expanding threat surface.

Organizations with cyber insurance were more likely to be affected by ransomware — 77% of organizations with cyber insurance were hit with at least one successful ransomware attack, compared to 65% without cyber insurance.

The research also found that 27% of the organizations surveyed feel they are not fully prepared to deal with a ransomware attack.

“The number of organizations affected by ransomware in 2022 likely reflects the widespread availability of low cost, accessible attack tools through ransomware-as-a-service offerings,” said Fleming Shi, CTO, Barracuda. “The relatively high proportion of repeat victims suggests that security gaps are not fully addressed after the first incident. The security industry has an essential role to play in helping organizations to defend themselves against ransomware, through deep, multilayered security technologies that include advanced email protection and backup as well as threat hunting and extended detection and response (XDR) capabilities to stop malicious activity in its tracks.”

Company Urges Businesses to Focus on Protecting Microsoft Azure Active Directory

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – March 27, 2023 — / / — With World Backup Day approaching on March 31, Keepit, the market leader in cloud backup and recovery, is encouraging businesses to prioritize backing up Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory (AD) and is offering free demonstrations and a free trial of its full data protection solution for Microsoft Azure Active Directory. Keepit is the world’s only independent, vendor-neutral cloud dedicated to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) data protection with a blockchain-verified solution, and its leading protection for Azure AD helps businesses back up and recover critical identity and application objects that are not protected by Microsoft.

“Azure AD is the brain to the Microsoft 365 body. It’s the control plane that allows access, gives orders, and makes sure 365 runs well via policies and configurations,” said Paul Robichaux, senior director of Product Management. “Loss of access to Azure AD can result from a variety of mishaps: bad actors hacking your Azure AD and locking you out, or an authorized user deleting a policy or admin accounts. If users can’t use their identities because their identities can’t get authorized in Azure AD, they are not able to access their Microsoft 365 applications. If users can’t access anything, they can’t work, which grinds operations to a halt while the issue is addressed. Backing up Azure AD ensures that businesses still have access to everything in the event of a calamity. With our leading protection for Azure AD, Keepit helps companies close any Azure AD gaps in their security strategy, as well as recover business-critical identity and application objects that Microsoft doesn’t protect.”

As a prime target for hackers, Azure AD sees 50 million password attacks per day, which amounted to attacks on almost 10% of the 550 million Azure AD users in 2022. According to Microsoft, Azure AD accounts are also 50 times more likely to be compromised than consumer Microsoft accounts. With the introduction of cloud computing, the edge of a network no longer exists, and the latest hacker techniques rely on compromising identity first. Consequently, information technology (IT) security has increasingly focused on protecting identities rather than the network itself.

When Azure AD is compromised, ramifications include:

  • The cost of data loss – loss of business continuity, reputation, and resources on recovery
  • The scope of data loss – only 14% of businesses that pay ransom to recoup data from hackers actually get the data back
  • Downtime – on average, initial (often incomplete) restoration of Azure AD can take two to three days; full restoration can take months.

life cases of the damage incurred after Azure AD has been compromised, either intentionally or unintentionally, are plentiful. In 2018, a Carlsbad company suffered losses of more than $500,000, endured three full days of downtime, and invested six months in rebuilding after a disgruntled former employee deleted more than 1200 of the company’s Microsoft 365 user accounts. Before engaging Keepit, one customer lost $2.5 million in a single day because an Azure AD tenant was encrypted. And in 2020, the personal chat histories of 145,000 Microsoft Teams users at KPMG were inadvertently and permanently deleted due to an IT blunder.

To defend against these types of incidents, Keepit offers a holistic backup and recovery plan for the entire Microsoft 365 environment, including Azure AD.

Keepit’s Azure AD protection helps organizations:

  • Meet recovery service level agreements
  • Back up important cloud objects not covered by the Azure AD Recycle Bin
  • Extend the retention and the ability to recover Azure AD objects
  • The ability to selectively roll back changes
  • Preserve important records for compliance purposes
  • Recover lost data in disaster scenarios
  • Increase IT efficiency.

With its unmatched ease-of-use, fast restore features that minimize downtime, and cost-effectiveness, Keepit continues to be the solution that organizations rely on to protect their cloud-based data.

St. Petersburg, FL – March 24, 2023 — / / — Today, many FINRA firms want to move their operations to the Microsoft 365 Cloud, but are worried how compliant they will be, specifically with rule 17a-4 and its email and data retention demands. They also need to meet FINRA’s cybersecurity requirements. Compliant Workspace is a perfect fit for them with it’s fully secured, fully protected solution out-of-the-box – AdvisorVault is happy to partner with them.

Microsoft 365 makes sense, especially for small firms since it’s a complete platform giving employees everything needed to do their jobs, but by default Microsoft’s Cloud isn’t 17a-4 compliant, also they won’t provide the FINRA letters. So a special kind of cloud provider is needed; one that understands the unique compliance demands of firms such as broker-dealers.

“We designed Compliant Workspace specifically for companies needing a higher level of security and protection in the cloud, our Consolidated 365 Service has built-in features making FINRA firms immediately 17a-4 compliant when they migrate their office to Microsoft 365 with us, we are excited to partner with AdvisorVault”, says Patrick Lonz, President of Compliant Workspace.

Innovative technology integration strengthens Acronis’ roster of security solutions against fileless attacks

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – March 23, 2023 — / / — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, today announced the enhancement of its security defense against advanced fileless attacks using Intel® Threat Detection Technology (Intel® TDT) leveraging the Intel® integrated GPU to offload memory scanning operations from the CPU. Acronis is the latest cyber protection company to integrate Intel® TDT to enrich its security products.

With cyber threats evolving and growing on a daily basis, Acronis researchers have witnessed new types of malware and attack vectors on enterprises such as polymorphic malware and fileless attacks. Many threats utilize an in-memory-only approach which can be hard to detect. Intel® TDT technology allows Acronis cyber protection solutions to free resources while scanning HDD and memory resulting in improved system performance. Acronis researchers found that while scanning all the processes in system memory on supported CPUs, Intel® TDT reduced the load on the CPU 2.4x times, by offloading the job to the Intel® integrated GPU.

The Acronis solution combines complete single-agent cyber protection with Intel® TDT. This enhancement results in lower CPU utilization which allows more compute capacity for productivity and office software used by Acronis end customers while compute-intensive security operations run in the Intel® integrated GPU. The innovation of Intel® TDT will be available through Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, Acronis Cyber Protect, and Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office solutions.

“The integration of Intel® TDT into Acronis cyber protection solutions is a logical step to meet the needs of our users, said Patrick Pulvermueller, CEO at Acronis. “During the last year, we observed that almost 50% of attacks detected were fileless. The use of this Intel technology is a great milestone as we continue to optimize and enhance our anti-malware engine.”

“Through our collaboration with Acronis to integrate Intel® Threat Detection Technology into their cyber protection solutions, customers of all sizes that utilize Intel vPro® can perform frequent and highly performant memory scanning. This is a great benefit for our mutual customers as we help them stay ahead of increasingly sophisticated threats,” said Carla Rodríguez, Vice President and General Manager, Ecosystem Partner Enabling at Intel.

“As the IT world grows in sophistication and continues its migration to the cloud, more stress has fallen on security teams with less-integrated technology, creating complexity and unintentional blind spots in security systems,” said Research Vice President of Security and Trust Michael Suby at IDC. “According to a recent IDC survey of 1,015 security professionals in North America, this is particularly the case for smaller organizations who are less equipped to effectively operate separate products from multiple vendors or benefit from a position of strength in negotiating with multiple vendors. As such, they are more likely to resonate with an integrated hardware and software approach to endpoint security.”

Acronis provides its users with the ability to take back control and overcome complexity with an integrated platform which results in greater operational efficiency. By implementing an integrated solution like Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, organizations can reduce the time that security teams spend on various operational activities, lower training costs, reduce the complexity in their environment by minimizing the number of tools managed, and ultimately drive business growth.

Johannesburg, SA – March 24, 2023 — / / — South African cyber security specialist Obscure Technologies has partnered with Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security Company, for the distribution of its solutions in South Africa.

The non-exclusive distribution agreement adds crucial data security, cyber resilience and recovery competence to Obscure Technologies’ product stack. Rubrik provides data resilience, data observability and ransomware recovery with air-gapped, immutable, access-controlled backups.

Obscure Technologies MD Justin Lee says: “Data security is the fastest growing area of cyber security at the moment, and a top priority for South African organisations. This space was a missing piece in the puzzle of our security portfolio, so adding Rubrik to our product stack addresses our valued partners’ and customers’ evolving cyber security and data protection needs across the board.”

He adds: “Data is the most valuable asset of most companies today. Rubrik offers a secure vault to protect data, and in the eventuality of organisations being breached, Rubrik enables them to restore their data to the last known pure position and get business up and running quickly.”

Obscure Technologies is continually adding best-of-breed products to its stack, and now has a portfolio of 17 cyber security and data protection solutions with an 18 service offering set to be announced soon.

“We are continually extending our portfolio to help customers mitigate risk more broadly. We see huge demand for a product like this. Driven out of the acceleration to cloud, organisations now need to think about cloud data recovery, resilience and safety,” he says.

“With the addition of Rubrik to our portfolio, we are offering our valued partners an opportunity to open new revenue streams for their existing installed bases and to take something to market that we believe is a front-and-centre priority. It fulfils a growing need in the ransomware and malware space, and supports continuity and resiliency, which is becoming a critical requirement for business,” Lee concludes.

About Obscure Technologies
Obscure Technologies was founded in 2016 by a group of specialist security professionals whose combined IP and experience has been gained through working for and with global IT and security giants, over the years. We specialise in bringing the world leading security solutions to market. Obscure Technologies operates throughout the African continent.

We remain at the forefront of world and local security technology trends through our strategic partnerships with leading vendors. Moreover, we deliver end to end innovative technology solutions to our partner community.

Leading Data Protection and Management Providers OwnBackup and Cohesity Join Forces to Streamline Data Backup for Customers and Elevate Business Continuity in the Ransomware Era

SAN JOSE, CA and ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, NJ – March 22, 2023 — / / — Cohesity, a leader in data security and management, and OwnBackup, the leading SaaS data protection platform, today announced a strategic technology partnership to deliver customers a modern data security and management solution for their essential SaaS applications. Cohesity and OwnBackup are partnering to simplify this effort for their joint customers across an array of popular SaaS applications including Salesforce, Microsoft 365, ServiceNow, and Microsoft Dynamics 365.

As IT operations grow more complex, organizations today rely on multiple SaaS applications to run their businesses and are attempting to manage and backup these apps with an array of siloed solutions. Together, Cohesity and OwnBackup will help organizations take greater ownership of their mission-critical data through consolidation and also provide flexibility of choice on the backup environment most suited to their business needs.

This partnership will provide customers of both OwnBackup and Cohesity with enhanced capabilities to backup and seamlessly recover multiple data types, across a wide array of SaaS applications. With Cohesity and OwnBackup, customers will be able to choose to back up their data to their on-premises environment, or to a fully-managed cloud environment.

“Our business increasingly relies on SaaS applications for day-to-day operations. While these products streamline parts of our IT and back-office operations, performing data backup and restoration has also been a bit complex,” says Dan Lepine, senior director of IT Infrastructure at Epicor. “We look forward to seeing how the partnership between Cohesity and OwnBackup can simplify how we protect and manage our most important asset: our corporate data. Being able to visualize and manage our on-premises and SaaS backup data side-by-side can bring efficiencies into how we manage those data sets.”

This partnership is also intended to help joint customers advance cyber resiliency within their organizations. For example, customers will be able to rely on immutability and strict access controls to recover their data predictably in the event of a data breach. From mainframe systems to modern SaaS-based applications, the joint solution will be designed to consolidate the protection of leading SaaS applications on a single solution, streamlining IT operations, reducing attack vectors for cybercriminals to exploit, and ensuring business continuity in the event of data disruption.

“OwnBackup understands the need to give customers the data security controls they need and expect when it comes to their data backups and provide solutions that best suit their business needs no matter their environment,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO, Cohesity. “As a leader in enterprise data security and management, we want to partner with the best-in-class in their area. We’re excited to partner with a leader in SaaS data protection to continue to deliver innovative solutions that our customers can confidently rely on.”

OwnBackup is an industry recognized leader in SaaS data protection with over eight years of experience helping customers protect their mission-critical data across Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Microsoft Dynamics 365. This joint effort will not only simplify management and reduce data sprawl, but more importantly, help customers to secure their data in an immutable format, protected with strict access controls.

“Partnering with Cohesity is a natural fit, as they share our commitment to helping organizations protect the data that they rely on everyday,” said Sam Gutmann, CEO, OwnBackup. “Together, we’ll enable customers to take ownership of more of their data and leverage it to improve their business.”

“Customers are using an increasing number of SaaS apps. Recent research we conducted at Enterprise Strategy Group shows that while many of these SaaS applications are considered mission-critical, data protection is lagging behind:  there is a disconnect that could lead to serious SaaS data loss consequences,” said Christophe Bertrand, practice director, ESG Research. “Cohesity’s recent advancement of an ecosystem of strategic partnerships, including with OwnBackup for SaaS protection is not only timely, it is critical for helping organizations simplify and optimize the protection of their key data assets, wherever they live.”

About OwnBackup
OwnBackup is a leading SaaS data protection platform for some of the largest SaaS ecosystems in the world, including Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics 365, and ServiceNow.

This is the most cost-effective local cloud storage service available today, which is secure, scalable, affordable and enables registered users to easily share, store and track their digital assets. In a short span of time since its launch, DigiBoxx has garnered more than 1.6 million registered users and continues to provide regular updates and innovative features like DigiFotos, its automatic photo backup service for Android and iOS devices.

Mr Arnab Mitra, CEO, DigiBoxx said, “Today cloud storage is every Internet-accessing citizen’s right, which must be respected. With proliferation of smart devices and ease of Internet access, every individual is creating data all the time and all of it needs to be stored and accessed on demand without being restricted to any one device. DigiBoxx acknowledges this right of the citizens and this new pack will empower every individual to create-store-access, in India, without breaking the bank.”

– A free account gives users a 20GB cloud drive. That’s equivalent to nearly 2,000 photographs and 5,000 documents.

– Completely ad-free.

– At merely Re 1 per day, DigiBoxx is one of the cheapest cloud storage services around. Users can get access to 100GB cloud storage for just Rs 30 per month.

– DigiFotos feature lets smartphone users back up photographs on the handset automatically to their DigiBoxx account. That’s 20GB dedicated to photo backups and other creatives, compared to others.

– Support for 8 local languages.

– Privacy and security are central to DigiBoxx. It upholds the citizen’s best interests and data sovereignty by keeping critical data created in India within its borders.

– App available for Android and iOS devices.

– Upcoming Windows Desktop app.

Popular cloud storage service providers provide limited storage capacity for free to individuals. Moreover, this data is distributed in datacenters across the world. There is no transparency on its location and there is no option to choose where one prefers to store their data. There is the additional privacy concern over service providers tracking user behavior for improving user experience.

DigiBoxx is a highly scalable service that addresses the needs for individuals, content creators and businesses. It offers much more storage space for individuals who prefer a basic free account. Their credentials are not shared with third-party services and its paid plans are more affordable when compared with global cloud storage service providers.

DigiBoxx can scale to meet the demand of content creators, sales, creative and marketing professionals in a small business and large enterprise as well. It streamlines workflows, unifies brand inventory across multiple touchpoints, allows teams to stay in sync and function effectively.
