Unequivocal test results: Among all the products tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation can protect the data from ransomware

BURLINGTON, MA – April 24, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection and storage today announced the latest product comparison report fromMRG Effitas, a UK-based independent IT security research company that provides a range of efficacy assessment and assurance services. The report conclusively demonstrated that Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation is the most advanced consumer backup solution as measured by ransomware protection, performance, usability, and feature set.

http://www.acronis.com/en-us/personal/computer-backup/

MRG Effitas compared Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation, CrashPlan Home 4.8.0, EaseUS TODO Backup Home 10.0, Genie Timeline Home 2016, IDrive 6.5.1.23, Macrium Reflect Home 6.3.1655, NovaBACKUP 18.5 Build 926, and Paragon Backup and Recovery 16. The result was a comprehensive 2017 report entitled “MRG Effitas Comparative Assessment of Data Protection/Backup Products on Protection, Performance, and Usability” – https://goo.gl/5CfU5s

The report singled out Acronis True Image as the only solution that protected data against every assessed ransomware threat, thanks to the innovative Acronis Active Protection™ technology released earlier this year.

“Among all the products we tested, only Acronis True Image 2017 New Generation was able to protect the backups from every ransomware family tested,” states the report’s final conclusion. “The other solutions have basically zero backup protection when it comes to ransomware… Based on the tests, only Acronis’s backup file is protected against the tested ransomware.”

“Ransomware currently represents a significant risk to end users, businesses and government institutions. Anti-malware technologies can’t provide 100 percent protection against this class of threat. What this test shows is that anyone relying on a backup solution to mitigate against the risks imposed by ransomware if their anti-malware technology fails should not just assume that it will be effective without independent, third party verification.” Chris Pickard, CEO of MRG Effitas.

That’s not the only finding that pointed to the Acronis solution as the optimal choice. According to MRG Effitas, Acronis True Image alsocame first in 18 of 24 performance test and when it didn’t win, it finished second.

“These results confirm our internal testing,” said John Zanni, CMO of Acronis. “Acronis True Image is the fastest home backup on the market and the only product that is able to protect itself, and the data, from ransomware. The same anti-ransomware technology is currently being rolled out across the full range of our business products and we’ll continue to invest in R&D, making data protection fast, easy, complete — for everybody.”?

About Acronis Active Protection
Acronis Active Protection is an innovative technology that provides real-time protection of data and backup software against ransomware. Cutting-edge behavioral heuristics detect and prevent new and known ransomware attacks, making the backup more secure, and reducing the number of times data needs to be restored from the backup.

200 TB of application, mobile, virtual environment, and archived mail system data under Commvault management

Archiving solution reduces data volume in corporate MS Exchange environments by over 50%

Warsaw, Poland and Tinton Falls, U.S. April 24, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Commvault, global leader in enterprise backup, recovery, archive and the cloud today announced that Polskie Górnictwo Naftowe i Gazownictwo SA (PGNiG) – one of Europe’s largest natural gas exploration, production and distribution conglomerates – has implemented the Commvault Data Platform to deliver end-to-end data management and improved cost efficiency and access, while reducing business risk. The Commvault solution will manage all of the company’s business critical production and backup data environments.

As a Warsaw Stock Exchange (WIG 20) key national company, much of PGNiG’s data is extremely sensitive, requiring rigorous security and compliance procedures. Due to this and with additional regional regulations like the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), PGNiG needed extremely granular data classification, access management and reporting specifying the types of owned data. These elements dictate compliance requirements on recovery times, or the volume of possible data loss, which need to be maintained. At the same time, the company needed a consolidated central data protection system for the company’s five branches as part of a single backup domain.

The three stage implementation initially covered protection of virtual environments, mobile devices and email archiving before being expanded to application security, dedicated mobile devices security, data protection for the branches and expansion of archiving of the MS Exchange mail system with compliance elements, such as journaling, full-text data indexing and a dashboard for security teams. These features help ensure compliance, speed audit processes and allow for assigning legal hold procedures.

Previously at PGNiG, many different solutions were being used in parallel. After the Commvault implementation, backed-up data is assigned to five precisely defined layers. Data classified in lower layers is secured with different RTOs and RPOs, along with separate retention and backup guidelines.

The Commvault solution minimized business risk by providing full protection of all virtual environments, workstations and the MS Exchange mail system backup. In addition to mail system archiving and application protection for Oracle servers and Exadata storage, the implementation will cover about 500 endpoints. In total, Commvault protection covers approximately 200 TB of data, including 90 TB of data in a virtual environment, 75 TB of application data, 25 TB as part of the mail system and 15 TB data from mobile devices.

“We discovered the full potential of Commvault Platform during a transformation workshop organized by the company, as part of which Commvault assessed our organization’s maturity in the areas of data management and information,” said Przemys?aw Weso?owski, IT Infrastructure Director, PGNiG SA. “The workshops resulted in recommendations that delivered greater competitive advantage to our business by making different data sets more immediately and easily visible to our executives, as well as providing greater speed and accuracy in terms of compliance – a critical factor when our business has so much commercially sensitive data and the impending GDPR legislation requirements incoming into effect in 2018.”

Archiving PGNiG’s mail system will also make it possible to significantly reduce the volume of data managed in MS Exchange by 50-60 percent. The process will shorten relevant backup windows and significantly reduce license costs. Backups of data of lesser business importance, such as the mail system or unstructured files, will be transferred to the Commvault Platform archive system, reducing costs while keeping full access to archive backups. In the future, a disaster recovery center will be set up to support the most critical data, as well as a data replication system for the backup site.

“We are very pleased to see some of the largest multi-national organisations in Poland – like PGNiG – able to use our solutions to gain competitive advantage and compliance assurance,” said Agnieszka May-Sadowska, Area-Vice President, Central East EMEA, Commvault. “With organisations universally facing huge data growth and fast-changing business and technology conditions, they need seamless infrastructure development without costly investment. The Commvault Data Platform provides flexibility, scalability and business value using any combination of existing hardware infrastructure or new cloud investments.”

About PGNiG SA
Polish Oil and Gas Company (PGNiG) is the leader of the Polish natural gas market. Listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange the company’s core business includes exploration and production of natural gas and crude oil fields. Its key subsidiaries import, store, sell and distributes gaseous and liquid fuels. It also generates heat and electricity.

New Suite of Certified Clients Developed by Leading Media and Entertainment Partners

NAB2017 and BOULDER, Colo. — April 24, 2017 – /BackupReview.info/ — Spectra Logic today announced that 14 BlackPearl clients designed for Media and Entertainment (M&E) organizations are now available for the Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System, with more clients in development. New certified clients developed by leading M&E partners, including Avid®, CatDV, eMAM, IPV Ltd., Imagen, Levels Beyond, Marquis, Vizrt, as well as others, and the introduction of Eon Browser for non-managed creative assets, shows broad adoption of Spectra BlackPearl-based solutions in every size organization and in differing market segments. It is the industry’s premier storage platform for all workflows.

M&E customers rely on production storage to edit, create, complete projects and maintain their catalog, but then expect to preserve these valuable assets forever on a modern multi-tier archival solution that delivers quick and concurrent response with a predictable cost model as it scales over time. The M&E industry grapples with increasing volumes of video, improved resolutions and mounting costs associated with traditional archival solutions using middleware. Industry-wide, storage solutions are challenged to meet this demand. Spectra BlackPearl with its seamless support for many tiers of storage, including public cloud, meets this challenge in its simplicity to deploy, by scaling easily and affordably to accommodate growing content. The solution offers direct integration to user applications and workflows to its tape-friendly ecosystem, helping to alleviate the burden on production storage. Read more about the array of M&E organizations relying on Spectra BlackPearl here.

The growing number of available BlackPearl clients is a testimony to wide adoption of this modern approach to “active” content archiving. M&E users now have access to a broad array of BlackPearl-based solutions with its network of integrated partners. Through key partnerships and its Developer Program, Spectra Logic continues to expand and deliver modern and standards-based, leading storage solutions that best fit to the ever-changing needs of this modern era in the M&E market.

Spectra Logic’s Developer Program provides a wide array of tools and technical assistance to simplify and enable users to integrate their unique environment into a BlackPearl Converged Storage System. For example, customers with Ceph environments have utilized Spectra’s Developer Program tools and technical assistance to integrate a BlackPearl Converged Storage System directly into their workflows.

About Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System
Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining NAS and S3-based interfaces with multiple storage targets into a simple and affordable solution. Designed for numerous concurrent workflows, BlackPearl reduces the need for expensive third-party data movers by integrating Spectra S3-based interfaces with a range of certified clients and simple file movers. A BlackPearl solution with any combination of enterprise or archive disk and/or tape (LTFS) provides organizations with complete control of their data via local copies, offsite replicated copies, and offsite public cloud replication. From the affordable BlackPearl V Series that can transfer data at 300 MB/s to the BlackPearl P Series that can transfer data at more than 3000 MB/s, there is a BlackPearl option perfectly sized for every organization.

The Spectra BlackPearl Eon Browser provides a simple graphical interface that allows customers to easily move data on a host computer or a network share to a BlackPearl gateway, and copy data back to a host computer from the gateway. Data transferred to the gateway can optionally be transferred to tape- or disk?based storage, which simplifies data transfer.

ARMONK, NY – 24 Apr 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) this month identified their five essential qualities for banks seeking to thrive in today’s increasingly digital and cloud-first environment. Like many other industries, the established players in banking are constantly facing changes and new competition. These challenges stem primarily from on-the-cloud start-ups and agile FinTechs, a group of businesses that Moody’s Investor Service estimates as high as 4,000-strong worldwide and on the receiving end of $19 billion in venture capital funding — https://goo.gl/6KrW8u

As banks face this environment, they must adopt a cloud-first disruptor mindset. Industry players must recognize that cloud technologies will help transform how they access and understand their customers. New entrants are causing a massive shift in client expectations, putting pressure on incumbent banks to innovate and deliver cost-savings at record speed while meeting each of their regulatory requirements.

Working with financial services industry clients worldwide to drive business transformation, cloud and AI strategies, IBM has detailed five key elements that banks must embrace as they move towards a cloud-first mentality:

1. Become more agile by delivering cloud-based capabilities. By migrating to a dynamic hybrid cloud, banks can achieve greater capacity, efficiency and integration than what is currently possible with legacy on premise infrastructures.

2. Deliver adaptive, personalized customer experiences. This is something that FinTechs are doing well and sets a bar for traditional banks. A recent IBM Institute for Business Value study – https://goo.gl/OCzHk0 — shows only 30 percent of customers surveyed believe they’re getting a personalized customer experience, even though 45 percent of bankers surveyed believe they are delivering one. We believe that robust predictive analytics based on big data are a key technology enabler for banks to deliver personalized customer experiences.

3. Extract more insights by accessing data that is currently invisible. Financial institutions collect massive volumes of data, but much of it is unstructured, which makes it invisible to older systems. Cloud-based cognitive computing not only analyzes all this data, but understands, reasons and learns from it to continuously improve. For example, USAA has gained insight into their customers’ needs through predictive analytics that can recognize life events in time to provide services and offers, while a large Swiss bank has cut attrition by 66% on customers where analytics has identified their attrition behaviors in time for the bank to react.

4. Create a data savvy culture. Banks have a wealth of digital data that can provide unique insights into creating value for the individuals and businesses they serve. Establishing a culture where this digital data is combined with other sources via cloud based services can be used to better understand the challenges that clients face and help create the personalized experiences they expect. Advances in analytic and cognitive technologies also dramatically simplify and accelerate the discovery of actionable insights.

5. Embrace cognitive and AI. In addition to cloud, banks should also be prepared for changes as the use of cognitive computing and artificial intelligence continues to grow. Financial institutions have recently turned to these technologies as a platform for maintaining a competitive edge and the trend is just beginning. Banks such as Banco Bradesco are working with IBM to augment existing services by utilizing AI, with the goal of providing better and faster customer experiences.

Challenged to provide the new experiences clients expect, banks are competing for relevancy on their own turf. In a world comprised of FinTechs, the consequences have clearly had a direct impact on innovation. To thrive, we believe that banks must radically reduce costs to invest in the business and operating models that can unlock data and create powerful new experiences for their customers.

IBM recently announced — https://goo.gl/NdTrjl — its IBM Cloud for Financial Services, which is bringing together essential technologies such as cognitive and blockchain for developers to create and monetize apps for the financial services industry. Developers can access new tools to build in customer insights, security, privacy and support compliance readiness to help reduce the time needed for development and testing. APIs from both IBM and partner FinTechs are available on the platform.

About IBM Watson Financial Services
IBM is working with organizations across the financial services industry to use IBM Cloud, cognitive, regtech and blockchain technology to address their business challenges. Banking, wealth management and insurance are some of the areas poised for dramatic change by using cognitive and AI capabilities provided by IBM Watson Financial Services.

Spanning Becomes Independent Company Focused on Extending Leadership in SaaS Data Protection Market; Dell EMC Retains Rights to Sell Spanning Cloud Apps in Data Protection Portfolio

AUSTIN, TX – April 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Spanning Cloud Apps LLC, a leading provider of SaaS data protection, today announced that it has been acquired by affiliates of Insight Venture Partners (“Insight”), a leading global venture capital and private equity firm investing in high-growth software, internet and data services companies. Dell EMC, which acquired Spanning in October of 2014, will remain a Spanning strategic partner and continue to sell Spanning Backup around the world as part of their leading data protection product portfolio. Spanning Cloud Apps, LLC will become an independent company operating under the Spanning brand in Austin, Texas.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Jeff Erramouspe, who previously served as VP and general manager of Spanning, will return to his role as CEO, which he held before Spanning’s acquisition by EMC. Mike Pav, previously Spanning’s VP of engineering, will become SVP of Operations. All current employees will remain with the company.

“As we look towards the future for Spanning, we see an incredible opportunity to bring our solution for SaaS data backup and recovery to organizations around the world,” said Erramouspe. “The support from Insight gives us the freedom and fuel to continue to provide the best in SaaS data protection solutions and continue to grow stronger as we enter this new stage in our company’s journey. At the same time, Dell EMC maintains a strategic partner that helps their customers protect critical SaaS data.”

The acquisition comes as Spanning experiences continued business momentum, with more than 70 percent year-over-year revenue growth and a growing roster of more than 7,000 customers. Spanning protects more than 1.5 billion items for customers each week and has restored roughly 18 million items for customers in 2016. The company’s growth drivers include its global data center expansion, an increased percentage of large enterprise deals and distribution agreements with major channel partners. Insight, which has a long track record of success with growth-stage companies, provides Spanning with the resources it needs to continue to lead the SaaS data protection market.

“We’ve seen a marked increase in SaaS adoption in the enterprise, especially in large and mid-market organizations,” said Philip Vorobeychik, Vice President at Insight. “With that comes a greater awareness of the fact that companies are responsible for recovery of data lost due to user error or malicious activity. We believe Spanning has all the ingredients for continued success and market leadership – a great team devoted to customer success, innovative products, committed customers and a strong global presence.”

Spanning recently announced an extension of Spanning Backup’s global data protection for Office 365 in Australia and New Zealand, adding to the company’s existing overseas data center, serving EU Office 365 users, based in Dublin, Ireland. Spanning also remains the industry’s only backup solution that offers a 100 percent G Suite restore guarantee, as well as a “must have app” for Salesforce users for its Spanning Backup for Salesforce offering.

New, fully managed in-memory cache can reduce Amazon DynamoDB response times from milliseconds to microseconds

Preview starts today

SEATTLE, WA – Apr. 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator (DAX), a fully managed, highly available, in-memory cache that can reduce Amazon DynamoDB response times from milliseconds to microseconds, even at millions of requests per second. Customers can add DAX to their existing DynamoDB applications with just a few clicks in the AWS Management Console – no application rewrites required. There are no upfront costs or commitments with DAX, and customers only pay for the capacity they provision. To learn more about DAX, visit https://aws.amazon.com/dynamodb/dax

Amazon DynamoDB has simplified NoSQL database management by providing a fully managed, seamlessly scalable NoSQL database service. More than a hundred thousand AWS customers, including, Adobe, AdRoll, Airbnb, Amazon, DataXu, Duolingo, Expedia, FanDuel, Lyft, Mapbox, MLB Advanced Media, Redfin, Supercell, Twilio, Under Armour, VidRoll, and Zynga rely on Amazon DynamoDB to deliver consistent, single-digit millisecond latency for some of the world’s largest mobile, web, gaming, ad tech, and IoT applications. However, many applications with near real-time requirements for accessing data (e.g. real-time bidding, weather data, social gaming, or financial trading) need even faster performance. Until now, achieving further performance gains has meant deploying and managing in-memory caching clusters in front of Amazon DynamoDB, which often require developers to rewrite their applications, and require a specialized skillset to implement and operate.

With DAX, customers get a fully managed cache that boosts Amazon DynamoDB performance up to ten times, speeding response times to microseconds without requiring customers to setup, manage, and sync a separate caching cluster. Customers don’t need to rewrite their applications to get DAX for their DynamoDB apps; they simply provision a DAX cluster, point their application to the DAX endpoint, and DAX automatically caches item and query results in-memory on designated DAX instances. DAX clusters can scale while handling millions of requests per second, combining in-memory performance acceleration with the simplicity, flexibility, and scale of Amazon DynamoDB so applications remain fast and responsive regardless of the volume of requests.

“In just five years, Amazon DynamoDB has emerged as the backbone for many powerful Internet applications and Amazon’s consumer businesses, and today developers use Amazon DynamoDB to handle well over a trillion requests per day. But, customers that need applications to respond in microseconds have often asked us whether we could make Amazon DynamoDB even faster,” said Raju Gulabani, Vice President, Databases, Analytics, and AI, AWS. “We’re very excited to take Amazon DynamoDB’s performance to the next level with DAX – it’s like rocket fuel that can speed response times to microseconds for millions of requests per second without requiring customers to rewrite their applications. With DAX, applications remain fast and responsive – even when they experience massive spikes in request volumes.”

Expedia, Inc. is one of the world’s leading travel companies, helping millions of travelers per month easily plan and book travel. “At Expedia, we are longtime customers of AWS, and use DynamoDB across the company to power many of our applications,” said Brandon O’Brien, Principal Software Engineer, Expedia, Inc. “We received early access to Amazon DynamoDB Accelerator, and it has proven to be fast and easy to use. DAX represents a big opportunity for us to find the optimal balance between infrastructure cost and system performance.”

Eyeview Digital is a leader in ad tech focusing on video marketing technology. “In the Real-Time Bidding realm, using a lightning-fast and reliable key value store is a requirement you cannot work around, and for which we turned to Amazon DynamoDB. With hundreds of thousands of queries to Amazon DynamoDB per second, we have to make sure we are not hitting hot keys, balancing load, and optimizing for cost efficiency,” said Shahar Kobrinky, Vice President, Architecture and Scale, Eyeview. “Getting early access to DAX allowed us to do just that. Repeated users are now being handled by the DAX cache without making the more expensive (in both latency and cost) call to Amazon DynamoDB. We’re excited about DAX, and we can definitely see its value for many AWS customers as it has been and will continue to be valuable for us.”

Genesys is the global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions. “The AWS team has taken a best-practice architectural pattern and turned it into something repeatable and valuable for its customers. I expect DAX to become the de facto replacement for our distributed cache plus Amazon DynamoDB storage tier across our collections of microservices in PureCloud,” said Glenn Nethercutt, Chief Architect of PureCloud by Genesys. “The combination of sub-millisecond latency and simple transitions from the existing AmazonDynamoDB client means we’ll be able to rapidly adopt this service as it becomes available across the globe, significantly improving our performance and cost profile for read-intensive workloads.”

Twilio helps businesses make communications relevant and contextual by making it possible to easily embed real-time communication and authentication capabilities directly into software applications. “We depend upon Amazon DynamoDB’s consistent performance and scalability and trust it to power our Programmable Chat offering,” said Pat Malatack, General Manager of Twilio Messaging. “The ability to supercharge DynamoDB with DAX is something we’re looking forward to.”

Dunkin’ Brands has migrated mobile applications, e-commerce websites, and corporate IT infrastructure to AWS

SEATTLE, WA – Apr. 19, 2017  – /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS), an Amazon.com company (NASDAQ: AMZN), announced that Dunkin’ Brands Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: DNKN), the parent company of Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins, has selected AWS as its cloud infrastructure provider. The company has completed the migration of its mobile applications, e-commerce websites, and key corporate IT infrastructure applications from on-premises infrastructure to AWS for increased scalability, reliability, availability, security, and reduced costs, and has improved the digital experience for Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins guests.

Dunkin’ Brands has a number of customer-facing applications, such as its mobile applications and e-commerce websites, which serve as a critical way for the company to interact with its customers. Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins customers frequently use their mobile applications to review the menu, order ahead, and redeem rewards, allowing customers to easily and quickly pay for their orders or send virtual gift cards. Several of these business applications, as well as the Dunkin’ Brands digital web properties, run on AWS. In addition to providing high performance, reliability, and security, AWS has enabled Dunkin’ Brands to maintain high availability during peaks in usage. For example, key consumer events like National Coffee Day and National Donut Day, as well as popular timeframes such as the holiday season, drive significant peaks in use of these key applications. While Dunkin’ Brands had previously found it increasingly difficult to predict and manage the on-premises capacity needed to provide an optimal digital experience for its guests during these times, it now relies on AWS to easily and reliably scale up and down as needed. In addition, Dunkin’ Brands has also migrated internal corporate IT infrastructure applications to AWS to reduce costs and increase availability.

“Our mobile applications and digital properties are an absolutely critical way through which we reach our customers and they must be secure, available, and high performing at all times,” said Santhosh Kumar, Vice President, Infrastructure, Data Security and Privacy at Dunkin’ Brands. “We selected AWS as our cloud infrastructure provider for these key business applications due to the depth and breadth of the AWS services, and their experience in securely managing enterprise applications. AWS also provides us with redundancy to help us meet our goals of high reliability and availability, robust security and optimal performance for our applications, and the ability to quickly add capacity on demand when needed.”

“Dunkin’ Brands is a great example of an enterprise company’s journey to AWS. They began their migration to AWS with their development and test workloads and websites, and after benefiting from lower costs, faster innovation rates, and improved reliability, migrated critical, customer-facing and corporate IT infrastructure applications,” said Mike Clayville, Vice President, Worldwide Sales at AWS. “We’re excited to work closely with Dunkin’ Brands as they continue their journey to AWS.”

Today Kaspersky Lab announced the key findings of its “Attacks with Exploits: From Everyday Threats to Targeted Campaigns” report, which found 702 million attempts to launch an exploit in 2016

WOBURN, MA – April 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today Kaspersky Lab announced the key findings of its “Attacks with Exploits: From Everyday Threats to Targeted Campaigns” report, which found 702 million attempts to launch an exploit in 2016. This is an increase of 24.54 percent from 2015, when Kaspersky Lab protection technologies blocked just over 563 million attempts. The report evaluates the threat level that exploits pose to consumers and organizations.

An exploit is malware that uses bugs in software to infect devices with additional malicious code like banking Trojans or ransomware. Attacks conducted with the help of exploits are among the most effective as they generally do not require any user interaction, and can deliver dangerous code without user suspicion. Exploits are often used both by cybercriminals seeking to steal money from private users and companies, and by sophisticated targeted attacks actors hunting for sensitive information.

In 2016, more companies and organizations encountered such attacks: the number of corporate users attacked by exploits increased 28.35% to reach more than 690,000, or 15.76% of all users attacked with exploits.

Additional significant findings of the report include:

  • In 2016, more than 297,000 users worldwide were attacked by unknown exploits (zero-day and heavily obfuscated known exploits), an increase of just under 7 percent on 2015.
  • Exploits to the infamous “Stuxnet vulnerability” (CVE-2010-2568) still top the list in terms of the number of attacked users. 1 in 4 users that encountered an exploit during 2016, faced this particular threat.
  • Overall, targeted attackers and campaigns reported on by Kaspersky Lab from 2010 to 2016 made use of more than 80 vulnerabilities. Around two-thirds of these vulnerabilities were used and re-used by more than one threat actor.
  • Browsers, Windows OS, Android OS and Microsoft Office are the applications exploited most often – 69.8 percent of users encountered an exploit for one of these apps at least once in 2016.

The report shows that the number of corporate users attacked by exploits increased 28.35 percent to reach more than 690,000. However, despite the growing number of attacks featuring exploits, and the growing number of corporate users attacked in this way, the number of private users who encountered an exploit attack in 2016 decreased just over 20 percent – from 5.4 million in 2015 to 4.3 million in 2016.

According to Kaspersky Lab researchers, a possible reason for this decline could be a reduction in the number of sources for exploits: 2016 saw several big and popular exploit kits (the Neutrino and Angler exploit kits) leave the underground market. This significantly affected the overall exploit threat landscape as many cybercriminal groups apparently lost their capabilities to spread the malware. Another reason is the faster reaction time of software vendors to newly discovered security issues. As a result, it is now far more expensive for cybercriminals to develop and support a really effective exploit kit and simultaneously stay in profit. However this is not the case when it comes to attacks against organizations.

“Based on both our detection statistics and our observations of the activity of targeted attack actors, we see that professional cyber espionage groups still have the budgets and skills to develop and distribute sophisticated exploits,” said Alexander Liskin, security expert at Kaspersky Lab. “The recent leak of malicious tools allegedly used by the Equation Group is an illustration of this. However, this doesn’t mean that it is impossible to protect your organization against exploit-based attacks. In order not to let malicious actors succeed, we advise users, especially corporate ones, to implement best practices of internet security and protect their computers, mobile devices and networks with proven and effective protection tools.”

In order to protect against attacks via software exploits, Kaspersky Lab experts advise the following:

  • Keep the software installed on your PC up to date, and enable the auto-update feature if it is available.
  • Wherever possible, choose a software vendor that demonstrates a responsible approach to a vulnerability problem. Check if the software vendor has its own bug bounty program.
  • If you are managing a network of PCs, use patch management solutions that allow for the centralized updating of software on all endpoints under your control.
  • Conduct regular security assessments of the organization’s IT infrastructure.
  • Educate your personnel on social engineering as this method is often used to make a victim open a document or a link infected with an exploit.
  • Use security solutions equipped with specific exploit prevention mechanisms or at least behavior-based detection technologies
  • Give preference to vendors which implement a multilayered approach to protection against cyberthreats, including exploits.

S3-enabled hybrid-cloud solution delivers flexible, scale-out object storage for massive data growth

SAN MATEO, CA – Apr. 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian, Inc., a global leader in hybrid cloud object storage systems, announced today that Federal Hill Solutions (FHS) has implemented a Lenovo DX8200C object storage appliance powered by Cloudian as the primary storage solution for its managed backup service.

FHS is an IT solutions and managed service provider that offers managed infrastructure, cloud and security services. Customers turn to FHS to address the challenges of rapid data growth with a cloud-based solution that offers the cost predictability of a fixed-price service model.

“Our storage customers know the pain of runaway access charges. We give them a simple, predictable cost model that includes full white glove services plus the flexibility to scale capacity on demand,” said Federal Hill Chief Marketing Officer Marc Winter. “Lenovo / Cloudian’s cost-effective, scale-out architecture and limitless capacity allows us to offer a zero-access-charge service so our customers know what to expect every month.”

FHS needed a way to offer customers a public cloud alternative that is technically comparable with public cloud solutions, at a cost-point that would support the company’s unique billing model. The solution also needed to be multi-tenant ready and fully S3-compatible.

“We looked at three different S3-enabled products,” said Arthur Olshansky, Federal Hill chief technology officer. “Only the Lenovo / Cloudian solution offered the full feature set we needed, including multi-tenancy and quality of service controls. Best of all, with Cloudian we’ve seen zero S3 interoperability issues, so we get great uptime and satisfied customers.”

Cloudian software is built on a 100 percent native S3 architecture, and delivers guaranteed interoperability with S3-enabled applications. For FHS, this means trouble-free integration with the backup solutions in its portfolio, such as Rubrik, Commvault, Veritas and Cloudberry.

The Lenovo Storage DX8200C powered by Cloudian is part of the award-winning portfolio of Lenovo systems. The solution incorporates industry-leading reliability, security, energy efficiency and world-class performance for business-critical applications and cloud deployments.

“The Lenovo/Cloudian solution provides FHS the ability to support many different customer scenarios and workloads as they continue to grow,” said Jon Toor, Cloudian’s chief marketing officer. “It also gives them the flexibility to offer fully private cloud or hybrid cloud solutions, with seamlessly scalable capacity.”

“With the Lenovo/Cloudian solution, FHS customers can grow their storage on demand, rather than ahead of demand,” said Cliff Gumkowski, vice president, North America DCG Sales, Lenovo, “And they have the ability to develop their infrastructures with S3 ecosystem applications.”

The Forrester report states, “[Infrastructure & Operations] leaders are increasingly responsible for supporting their firms’ digital businesses and are often measured by the effectiveness of customer engagement. DRaaS promises to help I&O pros build a resilient technology infrastructure so they can deliver always-on services where downtimes are either imperceptible or last just a few seconds.”

In Forrester’s evaluation, iland received the highest scores possible in the categories of data security, pricing, service levels and contract terms.

The Forrester report states, iland DRaaS services are delivered “using Double Take, Veeam, and Zerto. Its self-service console integrates the underpinning replication solutions and makes it easy for customers to perform all operations on a single console. The iland Secure Cloud Console automatically measures the RPO and displays it over time – customers can set alerts in the event of a breach of a pre-set service-level agreement – and offers embedded security and compliance reporting. Once failover is executed, systems are scanned regularly for viruses, vulnerabilities, file integrity, firewall events, web reputation, application control, and intrusions. Upon failover, customers immediately gain access to built-in seven-day backups, providing additional resiliency. [It] works with [Business Continuity] consultants that evaluate DRaaS options and provider recommendations. It also has an impressive roadmap.”

The iland Secure DRaaS solutions are part of a suite of Secure Cloud services, which include cloud backup and cloud hosting (IaaS) delivered to a global customer base from data centres in the Americas, Europe and Asia. Customers can replicate both virtual and physical environments to the production-quality iland cloud and perform non-intrusive testing and recovery.

“The economies of iland’s DRaaS cost model, inexpensive bandwidth, and advanced replication technologies have made enterprise grade DR available to the masses. As a result, many organisations are new to cloud-based DR, so it’s critical that we guide our customers to deploy cloud-friendly architectures and follow best practices” said Brian Ussher, president and co-founder of iland. “Every iland customer is assigned a project manager and an experienced technical team of DRaaS and network specialists skilled in managing the most complex deployments. Additionally, iland continues to invest in our Secure Cloud Console to increase the visibility, security and reliability of our DRaaS offerings. We are proud of this recognition by Forrester and honored by our customers’ and partners’ continued loyalty and support.”

Last month, iland announced the latest release of their Secure Cloud Services, which encompassed support for Model Contract Clauses and the U.S. and U.K. Privacy Shield Frameworks that address the challenges of the constantly changing cloud compliance and data privacy regulations in addition to new features to help customers obtain more visibility into cloud billing and performance management functionality.

Ruggedized, portable data duplication system ingests and makes multiple digital copies duplicating 1TB in less than 50 minutes

CHATSWORTH, CA – Apr. 20, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — JMR Electronics, Inc. a leading provider of scalable storage solutions, today announced the general availability of the ICS Media MASSter 102 for production workflows requiring a rugged, portable system for duplicating digital assets at ultra-high speeds. Attendees of NAB 2017 at the Las Vegas Convention Center will be able to see an active demonstration of the system in the JMR booth, SL9027 (South Hall Lower Level) from April 24th – 27th.


Image: ICS Media MASSter 102

The Media MASSter 102 is standalone ruggedized unit designed exclusively for digital video applications. The unit which comes with a built-in monitor, is a versatile, light-weight, portable and cable-less data duplication device capable of copying multiple media devices to multiple SATA drives or other media devices simultaneously at speeds exceeding 20 GB per minute. The unit can ingest digital media assets from a wide variety of media sources (including SD, SDHC, SDXC, MiniSD, MicroSD, T-Flash, RED cards, M.2, and more) and duplicated to multiple hard drives (SATA) or other media devices simultaneously, with no additional hardware required. Multiple copies of a 1TB file can be made in less than fifty minutes and the system has the capability to send an additional copy of data to cloud storage. The Media MASSter 102 can copy, backup, format, hash or wipe data per operator request.

Using the unit’s on-the-fly hashing and encryption capabilities, the transferred data is guaranteed to be an exact replica of the original data without modification, re-arrangement or corruption. The native Windows O/S allows for installing almost any Windows applications and remote control through any OS X, Windows, iPhone or Android device. The unit’s advanced touch-screen user interface, along with an HDMI port for an additional screen, makes it easy to use in both the field and in the studio.

The ICS Media MASSter 102 is an innovation from the ICS operating unit of JMR. ICS has pioneered the disk drive duplication market and is an industry leader in computer forensic data acquisition.

JMR president and CEO, Josef Rabinovitz said, “ICS’ 26 years of innovation in duplication and forensics have created an ideal product for Media and Entertainment workflows. Source media can be viewed in a write-protected environment to protect original media data against accidental overwrites. Multiple hash and encryption modes (SHA-1, SHA-2 (Hardware Accelerated) AES256 encryption, MD5, CRC32) ensure the digital content is exactly what was captured and identical in every copy. Studios and production personnel can now immediately make three or more copies of original content to protect their assets as they are being created. The thousands of similar units sold to the digital forensics market are a testament to the Media MASSter 102 ability to also deliver on JMR’s promise of Reliability, Innovation, and Performance.”

Unique Architecture Delivers Unmatched Backup and Restore Speeds, Permanently Short Backup Window, and Lowest TCO in the Industry

WESTBOROUGH, MA – April 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid®, a leading provider of next generation disk-based backup storage with data deduplication solutions, today announced its newly-released Version 5.0 that now provides advanced support for Oracle RMAN Channels, Veeam Scale-Out Backup Repository (SOBR), and replication to Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud for disaster recovery.

ExaGrid v5.0 allows its Oracle RMAN customers to use Oracle RMAN Channels with up to 25 appliances in an ExaGrid scale-out GRID system. “Sections” of data are sent to each appliance in parallel for improved performance and also for performance load balancing as RMAN Channels will send the next section of data to the next available appliance in the GRID. Unlike first generation scale-up deduplication appliances that have a single front-end controller and simply add disk shelves, each ExaGrid appliance includes CPU, memory, network ports, and disk. If any appliance fails in the GRID, RMAN Channels continues to send backup data to the remaining appliances. In the scale-up model, if the front-end controller fails, all backups stop. With ExaGrid’s scale-out appliances in a GRID and its global deduplication across the GRID coupled with RMAN Channels, if any appliance fails, the backups will continue uninterrupted with a natural failover approach. ExaGrid can take in up to a total of 1PB of database data or a single 1PB database into a single GRID. In addition, ExaGrid’s unique landing zone maintains the most recent backups in their undeduplicated native form for fast Oracle database restores, and all longer-term retention is kept in a deduplicated repository.

“Oracle database administrators and backup administrators struggle to have fast Oracle backups and even more so fast restores,” said Bill Andrews ExaGrid’s President and CEO. “ExaGrid v5.0 is the first backup storage solution that provides fast backups at a rate of up to 200TB/hour per PB and fast restores with the ExaGrid landing zone coupled with performance load balancing and failover when working with Oracle RMAN. There is no solution on the market that will come close to the ExaGrid approach for Oracle RMAN.”

ExaGrid’s v5.0 also supports Veeam’s newly-announced SOBR, which allows backup administrators using Veeam to direct all jobs to a single repository made up of ExaGrid shares across multiple ExaGrid appliances in a scale-out GRID, automating job management to ExaGrid appliances. ExaGrid’s support of SOBR also automates the addition of appliances into an ExaGrid system as data grows by simply adding appliances to a Veeam repository group. The combination of Veeam SOBR and ExaGrid’s appliances in a scale-out GRID creates a tightly integrated end-to-end backup solution that allows backup administrators to leverage the advantages of scale-out in both the backup application as well as the backup storage. The combination of Veeam backups to the ExaGrid landing zone, the integrated ExaGrid-Veeam Accelerated Data Mover, and ExaGrid’s support of Veeam SOBR is the most a very tightly integrated solution on the market for a scale-out backup application to scale-out backup storage.

“ExaGrid continues to deepen its product integration with Veeam, driving unrivaled performance and value for the Always On Enterprise,” said Bill Andrews, ExaGrid’s President and CEO. “ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture when combined with Veeam SOBR delivers limitless scalability and effectively removes the obstacles to data growth encountered in first generation scale-up storage approaches, which can be costly and disruptive, particularly in larger data center environments.”

In addition, v5.0 also includes support for replicating from the primary site ExaGrid backup system to AWS for offsite disaster recovery. ExaGrid has always supported second-site replication from data center to data center and now also supports data center replication to AWS. ExaGrid’s approach of using an ExaGrid VM in AWS to AWS storage preserves many ExaGrid features when replicating to AWS, such as a single user interface for the onsite ExaGrid and the data in AWS, replication encryption, and bandwidth set and throttle. In addition, the v5.0 release supports encryption of data at rest in AWS. In the event of a disaster recovery, the backup application running in AWS or at a customer’s data center recovery site can request the data from the ExaGrid VM in Amazon for restores to any location. ExaGrid has complete support for disaster recovery to an ExaGrid at a second data center, to a rented third party data center, to an ExaGrid at hybrid cloud providers, and now to the public cloud.

“IT needs a new strategy, one that meets its expectations while also paving the way for true organizational resilience,” said George Crump, Founder and President of Storage Switzerland, a leading IT analyst firm. “ExaGrid continues to demonstrate that it is one of those companies with the right technology at the right time. Its landing zone feature seems tailor-made to solve both backup and recovery performance issues, and its choice of a scale-out architecture is ideal for the use case. The scalability that ExaGrid’s systems provide enables customers to keep pace with their expanding data volumes without sacrificing performance, and release of its v5.0 continues the company’s push to build and deliver what IT data centers truly need for backup storage.”

In addition to support for Oracle RMAN Channels, Veeam SOBR, and AWS, v5.0 also extends its support for Veritas OST to include ExaGrid appliances as target backup storage for the NetBackup 5200 and 5300 series of media server appliances. ExaGrid’s implementation has been Veritas certified. In addition, ExaGrid has also extended in Veritas NetBackup OST implementations to include support of NetBackup media servers running IBM AIX.

With comprehensive security concerns constantly on the rise ExaGrid, has tightened its prevention of and recovery from ransomware attacks.

  • Comprehensive access security – ExaGrid shares can be accessed only from designated backup/media servers
  • SMB signing can be enabled for ExaGrid shares, requiring Windows account credentials to be authenticated and authorized before access is granted
  • Each ExaGrid server runs a proper firewall and a customized Linux distribution that only opens ports and runs only the services necessary for receiving backups, web-based GUI, and ExaGrid-to-ExaGrid replication.
  • Communications between ExaGrid servers is secured using Kerberos authorization and authentication, protecting from a “man in the middle” attack from malicious users or software.
  • If the primary storage is compromised, restores from ExaGrid are up to 20 times faster than any other deduplication appliance as ExaGrid stores the most recent backup in an undeduplicated form avoiding the data rehydration penalty of only storing deduplicated data. Users are back online faster.

ExaGrid’s Version 5.0 will ship in May 2017.

Organizations come to us because we are the only company that implemented deduplication in a way that fixed all the challenges of backup storage. ExaGrid’s second generation product offers a unique landing zone and scale-out architecture, providing the fastest backup — resulting in the shortest fixed backup window, fastest local restores, fastest offsite tape copies, and instant VM recoveries while permanently fixing the backup window length, all with reduced cost up front and over time.

Cloud data protection and information management, coupled with self-service recovery, gives mobile Intergraph employees unparalleled data protection

SUNNYVALE, CA – Apr. 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Druva, the leader in cloud data protection and information management, today announced that Intergraph®, the leading global provider of engineering software for the design, construction and operation of plants, ships and offshore facilities, has chosen Druva inSync to protect data across the company’s roaming and mobile user base in Europe. The implementation provides users with protection for their critical data in the cloud, as well as the ability to recover data in a self-service manner when needed, instantly. By leveraging Druva’s cloud-first platform to remove the complexity of data protection and the risk of data loss for their mobile users, Intergraph stays compliant with their global data protection requirements without the burden of new infrastructure.

Intergraph provides enterprise engineering software and geospatial solutions to companies around the world. The Intergraph team supports employees and locations across Europe, including a significant mobile workforce. To provide better support to the company’s staff, the IT team at Intergraph investigated both cloud-based and on-premises data protection solutions. The team ultimately chose Druva inSync, a fully cloud-native solution, as the best product to meet the company’s needs. The implementation initially covers 200 users spread across Europe, with plans to expand beyond that user group in coming months.

“When it comes to protecting data, we believe Druva’s cloud-based repository provides the best solution for our roaming and travelling user base. The challenges related to data backup traditionally impact this group of users, as they carry a significant amount of data and are not frequently in the office. Druva’s backup process runs unattended and in the background, which allows our users to be protected without interruption whenever Internet connectivity is available,” commented Nico van der Werf, Director, Information Services EMEA at Intergraph. “The product just works: installation is easy and it does not impact user productivity during backups. Druva provides peace of mind for our mobile workforce and, therefore, to the overall company.”

Intergraph’s move to using cloud for its backup and recovery of data also benefits from highly efficient global deduplication. Based on current deduplication rates, Druva currently achieves a 53 percent reduction in storage volumes required alongside reduced costs to manage backup volumes.

“Moving to cloud-based data protection can reduce costs significantly for businesses of all sizes. However, the ease of use for both individual end users and for IT teams is more important, as this can reduce the costs for supporting control over files and information across the business. As more companies adopt a ‘cloud first’ approach to their IT, managing data can be a headache; Druva helps companies plan ahead around this issue and remove both cost and complexity from their information-management strategy,” commented Rick Powles, Vice President EMEA at Druva.

San Dieguito Union High School District leverages NAKIVO Backup & Replication to migrate workloads to a new datacenter within minutes, while saving $18,000 annually on VM backup

CAMPBELL, CA – Apr. 18, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting virtualized and cloud environments, has announced today that San Dieguito Union High School District has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their VMware environment.

The award-winning San Dieguito Union High School District (SDUHSD), in Encinitas, California, is one of the nation’s finest school districts, offering a wealth of academic and extracurricular opportunities in which its students can engage and excel. Spanning 85 square miles, the district includes four high schools, five middle schools, and a continuation high school. The SDUHSD serves 7th through 12th grade students from the coastal North San Diego County and its surrounding communities.

The IT infrastructure at SDUHSD consists of 20 ESXi hosts spread out across 13 different sites, and approximately 160 VMware VMs. “VMware VMs run various workloads, including Microsoft Active Directory, SQL, Oracle, SIS, user home directories, file servers, web servers, AD, DNS, DHCP, LMS, as well as store critical student information systems, and financial information,” says Matthew Colwell, Network Technician at SDUHSD. “Data protection is an absolute must have for our organization because user errors, deleted files, ransomware, and malicious activities, all pose significant threat to achieving 24/7 availability of data and applications.”

“With our previous backup solution, we experienced constant failed backup jobs and the backup speed was just unacceptable. From time to time, the software would also leave behind VMware snapshots that would fill up the storage space. Overall, I had to spend approximately 8 hours a week on monitoring and maintaining the solution,” says Matthew.

SDUHSD came across NAKIVO Backup & Replication on a forum and decided to give it a try. “In terms of installation, I performed the basic setup in less than one hour. By choosing the pre-configured virtual appliance option, we probably saved at least 3 hours on initial deployment across all sites. At first, I thought that I would not like the web interface, however, it’s fast and responsive, and we’re able to open the administrative interface from any computer, without installing a bulky client,” says Matthew.

“VM backup is the backbone of the product, and it is fast – what used to take a day, takes a few hours. I also like that I can schedule a backup job for 20-30 VMs, in comparison to the previous solution, that could not even backup one VM after another,” says Matthew. “Furthermore, we now maintain an offsite backup copy of our environment, so, we’ll be able to recover even if something happens to our primary backups. Backup copy was extremely simple to set up and I like how it is easy to define a separate retention policy for data that is maintained offsite,” says Matthew.

VM replication enabled SDUHSD to perform datacenter migration. “During the same time that we bought NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we were moving from one datacenter to another one, approximately 5 miles away. Prior to the move, we used the software to replicate critical VMs (one VM was 2 TB) from the old site to the new site. NAKIVO Backup & Replication performed the initial replication and continued to replicate daily changes each night, up until the day of the move. The end result was downtime that took a few minutes, rather than hours or days,” says Matthew.

“With NAKIVO Backup & Replication, VM backups are fast and consistent, while backup copy jobs give us an extra level of data protection. With the previous backup tool, we could not perform VM replication, but with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we used it to migrate VMs from one datacenter to another, with minimal downtime. While the previous solution required constant monitoring and controlling, we easily saved 32 hours per month on backup administration. And in terms of backup costs, NAKIVO Backup & Replication saves us approximately $18,000 annually versus the previous solution,” says Matthew.

As APPI deadlines approach, 66% also prioritizing compliance – a huge rise from last year

SAN JOSE, CA – Apr. 19, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ – Thales, a leader in critical information systems, cybersecurity and data security, announces the results of its 2017 Thales Data Threat Report, Japan Edition, issued in conjunction with analyst firm 451 Research. This year’s report, which details the 2017 data threat landscape based on the responses from IT security professionals in Japan, finds 66% of Japanese enterprises are making compliance a top IT security spending priority in 2017 (up from 30% last year). Over half (54%) are increasing overall IT security spending, a 23% increase from last year.

Click to Tweet: 54% of Japan respondents increasing IT security spending #2017DataThreat http://bit.ly/2kua9Ud

Focused on compliance, but still skeptical
With the May deadline for full compliance with the amended Act on the Protection of Personal Information (APPI) rapidly approaching, Japanese enterprises are making compliance a top IT security spending priority. The pressure to comply with the upcoming regulation may explain why only 30% of respondents listed compliance as a top priority last year. Coming in as the second and third IT spending priorities this year were ‘requirements from business partners’ (50%) followed by ‘reputation and brand protection’ (47%).

Despite this year’s numbers, only 44% of respondents believe that compliance is ‘very’ or ‘extremely’ effective at preventing data breaches. This number is particularly interesting when compared to other regions such as Germany (58%); the U.S. (64%); Australia and Mexico (68%); and Brazil (71%).

Advanced technologies, budget misallocation complicating matters
While an inherent skepticism of compliance’s efficacy in stopping all breaches is a positive sign, this year’s report also unveiled some troubling statistics. Seventy-nine percent of respondents will use sensitive data in an advanced technology environment this year, but over half (56%) believe that sensitive data use is happening insecurely within these environments. When it comes to the most popular advanced technology environments, mobile (45%), SaaS (39%) and IaaS (37%) lead the pack.

Also concerning is the mismatch between ratings for effective security controls and spending patterns. Even though data-at-rest security controls are rated the most effective at protecting data by 63% of respondents, it’s at the bottom of the list for IT security spending increases. In fact, only 27% of respondents plan to increase data-at-rest spending. Meanwhile, spending on network security – despite not being listed as the most effective control – will increase for 42% of respondents. When taking pulse of these numbers, its clear organizations keep spending on the solutions that worked for them in the past but may not prevent modern breaches.

Garrett Bekker, principal analyst for Information Security at 451 Research says:
“There is relatively heightened awareness around today’s threat environment and data security where it involves personal information and records, given the APPI and its new amendments. Privacy regulations such as APPI can be demanding, but firms should consider moving beyond compliance to greater use of encryption and BYOK, especially when deploying sensitive data to cloud and other advanced technology environments.”

The good news: less vulnerability and an understanding of encryption
While there are certainly areas for improvement, the 2017 report also brought reasons for optimism. Enterprises in Japan feel less vulnerable, and have fewer data breaches than their counterparts elsewhere (23% of respondents’ claim they are ‘very’ or ‘extremely’, compared to 30% of their global counterparts). Only 15% of Japan respondents claim to have experienced a data breach in the last year, versus 26% of global respondents.

Japan respondents also have a strong understanding of encryption benefits. Forty-nine percent of respondents list encryption as the top choice for addressing data privacy and sovereignty requirements. The same number of respondents also say they would increase cloud deployments if offered data encryption in the cloud with key control. Similarly, 39% of respondents would increase IoT deployments and 45% would increase container deployments if they had access to encryption technologies.

Peter Galvin, VP of strategy, Thales e-Security says:
“Many of the findings from our 2017 Japan Data Threat Report are encouraging. For example, respondents have increased spending to meet major compliance deadlines – but they’re also realistic about the role it plays in protecting data. Still, this doesn’t mean there is room for complacency. Far too many enterprises are falling behind when it comes to protecting data in advanced technology environments. While our modern threat landscape does present challenges, keeping data secure throughout its lifecycle is a critical priority. This can be accomplished through encryption, advanced key management, tokenization, and a host of other effective options.”

Japanese organizations interested in protecting existing legacy data sources while also taking advantage of advanced technologies should strongly consider:

  • deploying security tool sets that offer services-based deployments, platforms and automation;
  • discovering and classifying the location of sensitive data within cloud, SaaS, big data, IoT and container environments; and
  • leveraging encryption and Bring Your Own Key (BYOK) technologies for all advanced technologies

Kaspersky Lab today announced the release of a new version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, the company’s flagship corporate security solution for the constantly evolving cyberthreat landscape

WOBURN, MA – April 18, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Kaspersky Lab today announced the release of a new version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, the company’s flagship corporate security solution for the constantly evolving cyberthreat landscape. The new edition comes with multiple manageability enhancements, increased flexibility of data protection and centralized control of more platforms, applications and devices.

Centralized security management for better business efficiency 
In addition to securing all platforms, businesses using Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business, Kaspersky Security for Exchange Servers and Kaspersky Security for SharePoint can now monitor all three solutions through a unified administrative console, Kaspersky Security Center. This capability extends integrated multilayered protection beyond endpoints to employee collaboration and communications.

To make security management easy and intuitive, new features and improvements include the full remote deployment of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac. Simplified deployment, protection and management of mobile devices, along with a new Wi-Fi management option (providing a list of trusted Wi-Fi networks) will help businesses keep up with mobility and BYOD trends in the workplace, without compromising the organizations’ security or efficiency.

As part of its enterprise-focused functionality, the new Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business can be used as a sensor for the Kaspersky Anti-Targeted Attack platform. Once installed, the sensor component can collect and deliver data to the platform, providing more visibility into corporate systems. The “Changes” audit functionality in Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business allows IT security teams to track changes in policies and tasks, and compare revisions to identify any differences instantly. This significantly improves control over changes in the security settings.

Enhanced data protection capabilities 
Kaspersky Lab’s endpoint solution addresses data protection — the most important security concern for businesses, according to the IT Security Risks 2016 research. With new hard drive encryption capabilities available via Microsoft BitLocker management or Kaspersky Disk Encryption, companies can secure the sensitive business data that could expose customers, partners or undermine their business continuity — even if the cybercriminal obtains stolen or lost devices. Kaspersky Security Center remotely manages Microsoft BitLocker, monitors the status of encrypted devices and backs-up encryption keys to restore forgotten access credentials.

HuMachine Intelligence: Kaspersky Lab’s approach to fighting modern cybersecurity threats
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business is based on Kaspersky Lab’s HuMachine Intelligence approach — a fusion of threat intelligence with machine learning and the expertise of the company’s best security teams. Cyberthreats are detected with machine learning algorithms trained on big data from the Kaspersky Security Network. A global cloud-based threat intelligence platform, Kaspersky Security Network, processes metadata voluntarily submitted by millions of Kaspersky Lab product users, while security experts are constantly adapting mathematical models to detect new sophisticated threats.

Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business delivers true cybersecurity covering several levels of the corporate IT network. While there are specific applications providing defense for different infrastructure node types, a multi-layered stack of protection technologies operates on each of these nodes1.

“Businesses leveraging Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business are able to protect their infrastructure with a solution that identifies and blocks threats with a combination of techniques,” said Michael Canavan, SVP of B2B sales, Kaspersky Lab North America. “Besides precise algorithms providing false positive-free detection of known malware, our technology has Machine Learning-based heuristics and behavioral mechanisms capable of detecting previously unknown, sophisticated threats to provide cutting-edge, real-time protection for our customers.”

Kaspersky Lab’s HuMachine Intelligence features include:

  • Structural heuristics, including locality-sensitive hashing and decision tree ensembles.
  • Emulation-based detection mechanisms, using safe ‘pseudo-execution’ of both scripts and binaries.
  • Behavioral System Watcher technology providing detection of the most advanced, heavily obfuscated malware types – and ‘nextgen’ attack models such as ransomware and Powershell-based malware. Its on-the-fly micro-backup and automatic rollback features ensure that malicious activity is reverted right after malware detection. This is very important in the case of a ransomware attack.
  • Automatic Exploit Prevention (AEP), which mitigates exploit techniques and protects popular targets, such as Java, Flash, Adobe Reader, browsers and office applications even in the case of a zero-day scenario.

The Kaspersky Security Network delivers cloud protection with immediate reaction to new threats, while on-premise Machine Learning models allow for the detection of new threats even in offline mode.

Kaspersky Lab’s security professionals analyze the most sophisticated threats and constantly tune Machine Learning algorithms to minimize the possibility of errors. Human experience and expertise are indispensable for teaching the machines while leveraging the comprehensiveness of globally acquired threat data. This approach ensures the industry’s highest detection rate and lowest false positives rate, which is backed by independent test results.

Solution package, availability and pricing 
Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Business is available in the following editions addressing different business needs with special functionality: Select, Advanced and Total.

The solution is available globally under both traditional and subscription licensing. Kaspersky Lab’s partners can address all regional pricing inquiries.

More information about Kaspersky Security for Business and particular applications inside each edition is available here – https://goo.gl/tLdwb2

Kaspersky Lab in independent tests 
Each year products by Kaspersky Lab, along with other vendors are tested in a number of independent benchmarks and comparative reviews. We are proud that our products demonstrated the best results in 2016, achieving a higher percentage of top three places in reviews: 90 percent. Learn more at www.kaspersky.com/top3

Multi-Billion-Dollar Company Uses Nasuni to Store, Protect and Access 120 TBs of Primary File Storage Spanning 5,000 Users and 200 Locations

NATICK, Mass. – April 18, 2017 – /BackupReview.info/ — Nasuni, the leading provider of cloud-scale enterprise file services, today announced that APi Group, Inc. has fully implemented the company’s flagship solution to store, protect, and access 120 TBs of file data. APi Group is a multi-billion-dollar parent corporation to more than 40 independently managed life safety, energy, specialty construction and infrastructure companies. It needed a solution that could keep pace with the growing amount of unstructured data generated by its 5,000 employees. APi Group deployed Nasuni backed by Azure object storage to replace legacy NAS filers, backup systems, and file access software with a hybrid cloud solution that better supports its many one and two-person project sites, regional branch offices, and large main offices across the US, Canada, and the UK.

Serving the file storage needs of more than 200 locations had been straining APi Group’s IT infrastructure as well as the network and server group’s IT staff at the company’s New Brighton, Minnesota headquarters. Past incidents such as a file server failure would impact data access at the local site as well as project collaboration at other locations. Furthermore, restoring the data was costly and labor-intensive.

“We needed a robust disaster recovery solution, something that could not only do file replication, but could also facilitate the increased collaboration we were seeing between our companies and offices. Additionally, we needed to enable file locking between sites so users could work on the same files without conflict,”  said Brian Erickson, IT implementation and Acquisitions Manager at APi Group.

Nasuni Professional Services helped design a solution based on Nasuni enterprise file services and Azure object storage that is enabling APi Group to centrally manage and reliably backup 300 volumes distributed across all locations. The final design takes advantage of Nasuni’s UniFS® global file system, which stores all files and metadata in the cloud, and uses Nasuni edge appliances to cache the most frequently accessed files locally for secure, high performance access. The design called for multiple Nasuni edge appliances to be deployed in the company’s main datacenter, enabling other sites to automatically fail over should their local edge appliances experience an issue.

The benefits were immediate. Support requests related to files plummeted, freeing up IT resources for other projects. Erickson, himself, used to spend many evenings babysitting the previous replication system because it would often fail. With Nasuni, he and other members of the IT team can centrally manage the global file system and edge appliances in all locations and provide faster support.

“Previously, we were overwhelming the replication system with the size of our file shares and the sheer number of locations we served,” Erickson said. “But Nasuni is much more scalable, with all edge appliances centrally managed. Even if something happens with one, each site remains independent. Nasuni is resilient – one site going down doesn’t affect any other site’s ability to access files. It’s been a game-changer.”

Nasuni is also a key enabler of APi Group’s growth through acquisition. New offices can be quickly on-boarded now that the acquired company’s existing file shares can be easily migrated into the Nasuni file system. Since APi Group has deployed Nasuni using virtual edge appliances in each office, IT can quickly bring new locations online without a physical visit.

“I push the Nasuni edge appliance to the VM server, quietly do the data migration behind the scenes, and, when we do the cutover, employees arrive the next day, reboot and they have full access to their files,” Erickson said. “The ‘gold copy’ of the files are in the cloud, but users don’t notice any difference. It might take two ticks instead of half a tick to open the file the first time, but after that, the file is cached locally and is as fast as or faster than before the cutover.”

Because Nasuni only caches the most recently used files, physical disk size requirements for each location have dropped, freeing up funds that can be invested in higher performance disk drives and other IT needs.

“It’s like stuffing 20 pounds of potatoes into a 5-pound bag,” Erickson said. “Because we don’t have to buy as many large capacity drives as we did before, we are able to upgrade to fewer, lower capacity but higher RPM or even SSD drives. We saved money, and employees are seeing a significant performance bump.”

“Traditional NAS, backup, DR, and mobile file access products can no longer meet the needs of the many enterprises who are experiencing explosive file growth,” said Andres Rodriguez, Nasuni CEO. “We’re delighted that APi Group is realizing the many employee productivity, business continuity, and cost-saving benefits of cloud storage with Nasuni enterprise file services and Azure.”

About Nasuni
Nasuni (“NAS Unified”) is the leading provider of cloud-scale enterprise file services. Powered by UniFS®, the first cloud-native file system, Nasuni leverages private and public cloud object storage to integrate and surpass the “silo” capabilities of traditional NAS filers, data protection software, mobile file access software, and DR infrastructure. Enterprises benefit from unlimited primary and archive storage capacity, unequaled recovery points and recovery times, unrestricted file access and unrivaled cost savings, along with the ability to meet “cloud-first” and business agility objectives.

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 17, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced that it has completed its acquisition of Nimble Storage, Inc., the San Jose, Calif.-based provider of predictive all-flash and hybrid-flash storage solutions. HPE paid $12.50 per share in cash representing a net cash purchase price at closing of $1.0 billion. In addition to the purchase price, HPE assumed or paid out Nimble’s unvested equity awards, with a value of approximately $200 million at closing.

The acquisition of Nimble strengthens HPE’s leadership in Hybrid IT and:

  • Creates a comprehensive, leading-edge storage portfolio by bringing together Nimble’s predictive flash offerings for the entry to midrange segments with HPE’s scalable midrange to high-end 3PAR solutions, SimpliVity solutions and affordable MSA products.
  • Accelerates Nimble’s growth momentum by bringing together complementary product portfolios and leveraging HPE’s expansive go-to-market capability, partner ecosystem and leading server platform.

IDC referred to the acquisition as a “home run” that “will benefit both HPE and Nimble customers alike” in one of their latest industry reports, which can be downloaded here – https://goo.gl/uK6asb

Nimble was founded in 2007 and has approximately 1,300 employees worldwide. The company delivered revenue of $402 million in its most recent fiscal year, up 25 percent year over year.

The acquisition is expected to be accretive to HPE earnings in the first full fiscal year following the close.

This morning, HPE consummated the merger of its wholly owned subsidiary with and into Nimble, with Nimble continuing as the surviving corporation, pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement and in accordance with Section 251(h) of the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware.  In the merger, each Nimble share outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the merger (other than shares held (i) by Nimble as treasury stock or by HPE or its subsidiary that merged with Nimble, which shares were canceled and have ceased to exist, (ii) by any wholly owned subsidiary of Nimble or any other wholly owned subsidiary of HPE, which shares were converted into such number of shares of common stock of the surviving corporation so as to maintain relative ownership percentages or (iii) by any Nimble stockholders who validly exercise appraisal rights under Delaware law with respect to such shares) was automatically canceled and converted into the right to receive $12.50 per share, without interest and less any applicable withholding taxes.
