BURLINGTON, MA – July 29, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Scuderia Toro Rosso and Acronis®, a global leader in hybrid cloud data protection which partnered with the team on the occasion of last week’s Hungarian GP, are very pleased to announce the extension of the agreement to a new long-term partnership, designed to reach new heights in racing and technological product development.

The new partnership will lead to rapid innovation, increased safety and enhanced performance during races and off the track.

The Acronis logo, which was already visible on our STR11 cars in Budapest, will continue to be on the team’s cars and its drivers’ race suits, signifying Acronis’ commitment to the team through providing the latest technology to protect Toro Rosso’s IT infrastructure.

Acronis’ team appreciates the complexity of racing in the pinnacle of motorsport, where every millisecond counts. Toro Rosso will use Acronis hybrid cloud data protection solutions to guarantee data availability when it’s most needed — during races and preparing for new events.

Scuderia Toro Rosso produces up to 700 GB of data every race weekend. Hundreds of sensors with multiple data points monitor the cars, providing real-time information, which is immediately analyzed and used through the race to improve performance. The data is also transferred to Toro Rosso’s base in Faenza, Italy, where a support group of engineers and data analysts use it for car improvements and new race strategies.

The sport is a data-driven business — the data collected on the racetrack fuels rapid innovation and enables the team to make educated decisions more efficiently.

“In our competitive environment it is becoming increasingly more important to protect all our technical information with a very high standard of software and Acronis can offer exactly what we need. Now that we have a long-term project together, we can’t wait to start working with Acronis, not only on a sponsorship level, but also in terms of adopting their data protection products within our factory and race team. I am sure we will both benefit from this technical cooperation and it will help our team to continue moving forward,” commented Team Principal Franz Tost.

Scuderia Toro Rosso is an R&D powerhouse, which analyses massive amounts of data and fine-tunes cars for each new race, depending on previous history and the current track condition. Acronis places great importance and invests large amounts of resources into R&D activities as well. The two teams will join forces to deliver the best results in racing and in the field of data protection by focusing on precision engineering, performance, design, innovation, and teamwork. The new partnership will lead to increased safety and enhanced performance on and off the track.

“Acronis is a cutting edge and forward looking company, growing rapidly in the field of data protection, which links in very well with the sport. This cooperation will see them and us work well and progress together,” said Scuderia Toro Rosso driver, Daniil Kvyat.

“It’s great news that Acronis has decided to support our team with a long term partnership”, commented Scuderia Toro Rosso driver, Carlos Sainz. “Formula 1 is a technologically intensive sport and Toro Rosso is looking forward to working together with Acronis.”

“Racing teams are very efficient in using the collected data for rapid innovation and developing new technology. Acronis will race alongside Scuderia Toro Rosso on and off the track, perfecting our own technology and delivering the best products to our partners and customers in the same efficient way,” said Serguei Beloussov, Acronis’ Founder and CEO. “This is a first class sport and Acronis subscribes to its philosophy of success – focusing on a combination of personal ingenuity, team unity and cutting-edge technologies and engineering. We really value the Red Bull brand and we’ve chosen Scuderia Toro Rosso, having great respect for its Team Principal, Franz Tost, and its drivers, Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz. Their vision for the team coincides with our corporate culture of being alert, responsive, vigilant, decisive and relentless, knowing firsthand how often things can work out just at the very last moment when the temptation to quit is greatest. This is relevant to dynamic sport and business.”

TORONTO, ONTARIO – July 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Data Deposit Box Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE: DDB, OTCQB: DDBXF, Frankfurt: 2DD), a global provider of cloud backup and recovery technology, is pleased to announce a new partnership and initial Smart Storage order from UK based distributor Brigantia. The Company also received its 5th channel award of the year, capturing the Best New Creativity and Innovative show award at the ASCII SUMMIT event in Miami in June.

Over the past twenty years Brigantia has evolved into the largest subscription partner services community in the UK with hundreds of technology channel partners. As Data Deposit Box’s UK smart storage device channel distributor Brigantia will roll out the devices nationally over the next twelve months through their 700 reseller and MSP partners. Brigantia will offer the solution on three-year finance lease terms through their partners to the tens of thousands of micro and small business customers they service nationally. The agreement commenced with an initial order and a further order commitment.

As a new product to the market, DDB released several Smart Storage products to existing and new partners as evaluation systems which has resulted in the new distribution partnership and initial order from the UK based distributor.

“We are very excited about this launch and orders with Brigantia; something we will be replicating over the coming months.” said Troy Cheeseman, President of Data Deposit Box. “It is clear that our partners are very enthusiastic to see our product come to market. We are offering the industry’s first “all in one” data continuity system, a complete solution in a box, where bare-metal recovery technology, file technology and direct to API technology functions within one simple system, via one intuitive partner portal. Our partners can take full advantage of a complete suite of products, services and features without having to worry about deploying agents or additional expenses.” offers Cheeseman.

“…we see the DDB Smart Storage devices as an excellent way of providing a cost effect backup solution to our partner’s business customers. The functionality offered by DDB and the pricing we can offer for the devices on easy leasing terms removes the final reservations for business end users to move away from tapes and other media storage solutions as well as removing the capital cost objection. With the DDB BMR service going live in July we know we are on to a winner with DDB.” Wrote Iain Shaw, Brigantia Commercial Director

In addition to the Company’s new relationship and smart storage bulk order, Data Deposit Box is proud to have received its 5th channel award of the year, winning the Best Creativity and Innovation award at the Miami ASCII Summit in June 2016. Over 170 registered partners attended the show and evaluated over 32 cloud industry vendor solutions (including Data Deposit Box cloud backup and recovery competitors Datto, Carbonite, and StorageCraft) and the Managed Services Partners at the show awarded the DDB suite of services the best innovative industry solution.

“Data Deposit Box has focused our new service offering based on one (1) simple principle; offer a complete data continuity solution that is designed and priced for the Small to Medium Business, globally” say Cheeseman. “This award is an industry and partner acknowledgment that our product, with features and price is at the right target for our partners. We thank every partner at the Miami show for this award.”

Data Deposit Box plans to attend the remaining four (4) ASCII Summit, two (2) SMB Channel Forum and ChannelNext events throughout the US and Canada over the remaining year.

The Company also reports that effective June 28, 2016, the Company’s Chief Technical Officer Rob Puzzuoli, ceased to be employed by the Company.

“We’d like to thank Mr. Puzzuoli for his hard work and service to the Company, and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.” said Troy Cheeseman, President and COO

A 12 Month Look Back at Business Transformation Through True Software Defined Storage

MELVILLE, NY – July 28, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — FalconStor Software®, Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), a 16-year innovator of software-defined storage solutions, has enjoyed an unprecedented response from enterprise customers, MSPs, and OEMs since first releasing its groundbreaking FreeStor® software platform one year ago. Globally, FreeStor now manages the data of more than 250 customers, representing a who’s who of companies including Nintendo, Fujitsu, Volkswagen, and Hitachi, and numerous organizations through MSP and OEM partners.

“The industry is moving toward storage environments built on commodity hardware and will continue to be differentiated by software and services. Technologies like the FreeStor platform are crucial at not only simplifying data management and protection but freeing the organizations from vendor-specific solutions and constraints,” said Lynda Stadtmueller, Vice President Cloud Computing Services at Frost & Sullivan. “Technology leadership that contributes to the ongoing adoption of software-defined storage is welcomed by the market, and in particular by MSPs, CSPs and storage suppliers who need greater flexibility in designing modern storage solutions.”

FreeStor’s horizontal, heterogeneous software-defined storage platform helps these organizations attain maximum flexibility, operational efficiency, and economic value out of existing storage environments, future storage investments, and seamlessly transition to new paradigms like public cloud, hybrid cloud, as well as heterogeneous flash and disk storage.  Cloud and Managed Service Providers in FalconStor’s ecosystem use FreeStor to deliver these benefits to their end users. FreeStor’s predictive analytics provides real-time and historical analytics across heterogeneous storage systems to better manage capacity, performance, and availability. FreeStor’s unified data services are also delivered across the entire storage infrastructure with always-on availability and continuity, enabling users to move, synchronize and protect data seamlessly across virtual and physical storage platforms.

Since its debut only one year ago, FreeStor’s accomplishments include:

  • Added the industry’s first intelligent predictive analytics across heterogeneous storage with real-time and over time insights from a single dashboard, regardless of storage vendor or location
  • Developed cloud-connected Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) and Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) offerings for more value to MSPs and Cloud Service Providers without cloud vendor lock-in or added hardware and complexity
  • Delivered integration with OpenStack, Oracle VM, and SAP HANA
  • Hypervisor agnostic support for VMWare, Hyper-V, Xen, and KVM
  • FalconStor’s total number of FreeStor customers in the first half of 2016 is up over 50 percent compared to all of 2015.
  • FreeStor capacity sold in 1H16 is 1100% more than what was sold in all of 2015
  • One of the top global accounting firms is now using FreeStor to deliver data protection, recovery, business continuity and data migration
  • German utility service provider Saarbrücker Stadtwerke deployed FreeStor to build its state-of-the-art data centers and data services offerings
  • 15 worldwide MSPs now use FreeStor to deliver top-tier services for their clients

IT Service Provider LG CNS is using FreeStor to deliver Korea’s first enterprise-class DRaaS deployment with global follow-the-sun availability

  • Received nearly a dozen media and industry awards, including four Product of the Year awards

“FreeStor helps us to provide infrastructure services that support our business to provide the highest levels of availability and data security,” said Sandor Orban, Technical Lead Infrastructure Services at Sunrise Communications Group AG, the largest private telecommunications provider in Switzerland. “While the future is always changing, we know that FreeStor will be able to help us further optimize our environment, continuing the trend to consolidate and reduce costs without compromising our customer values.”

“Our customers in the three verticals we support, especially in finance, are looking for differentiators – ways to separate out the various managed service providers and pick the one with the most critical technologies and varied support,” said Gabriel Enzo Gagliardi, CEO of Imptech , one of Latin America’s largest MSPs. “Our clients needed a solution that could promote better utilization, reducing overall storage costs and migrate data seamlessly when the need arises. We felt the FreeStor platform could provide our customers with an intelligent and flexible technology layer that enables common, efficient and cost-effective storage services, and centralized management of storage resources across an organization.”

“In an era of hardware commoditization, it can be difficult for end users to distinguish one product from another, so integration and partnerships are critical for demonstrating innovation and value,” said Yann Rolland, CEO of Synerway , a vendor of storage appliances based in France. “FalconStor has developed a truly groundbreaking portfolio that transforms data center operations and gives end users the unified and modernized approach to protection and recovery that enterprises want.”

“This past year has been one of remarkable success in both our technology development and the embrace of some very distinct market segments – enterprises, service providers, and hardware vendor partners – each of which have different requirements, yet each find FreeStor to be the best solution for modernizing their storage environments,” said Gary Quinn, FalconStor President and CEO. “The introduction of FreeStor also signified a remarkable new shift or pivot point for the company, and while any progress comes with unique growing pains, I have confidence in our team and our vision for making enterprise storage more efficient and available, without regard to growing data volumes or architectural complexity. FreeStor is setting these users free.”

FreeStor is sold via subscription pricing to enable users to pay-as-they-grow, based on capacity, eliminating the unpredictability of capacity expansion and renewal costs often associated with traditional storage platforms. MSPs resell FreeStor as a branded service to their own clients or use FreeStor internally to manage client data across disparate systems and environments. OEMs integrate FreeStor, often private-labeled, to gain the competitive edge of a far more sophisticated and powerful storage management option than they could develop in-house.

Extends QRadar platform’s advanced analytics to protect against compromised credentials and malicious insiders

ARMONK, NY – 27 Jul 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — IBM (NYSE: IBM) Security today announced a new app for IBM QRadar which analyzes the usage patterns of insiders, including employees, contractors and partners, to determine if their credentials or systems have been compromised by cybercriminals. IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics, available for free via the IBM Security App Exchange, extends IBM QRadar’s security intelligence platform to provide early visibility into potential insider threats before they can do further damage to a business.

Insider threats are currently responsible for 60 percent of attacks facing businesses, but roughly a quarter of these attacks are the result of users’ credentials falling into the hands of hackers via employees, contractors or partners who are tricked by malware-laden phishing attacks or other techniques [1]. For example, the new user behavior analytics app would alert analysts to a user logging into a high value server for the first time, from a new location, while using a privileged account. This change in pattern would be identified because the IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics solution created a baseline of normal user behavior for this employee and detected a significant deviation.

“Organizations need a better way to protect themselves against insider threats – whether they be from inadvertent actors or malicious cybercriminals with access to an organization’s inner workings and technology systems,” said Jason Corbin, Vice President of Strategy and Offering Management, IBM Security. “This new app provides analysts with the ability to quickly pivot by using existing cybersecurity data to see the early warning signs that are often buried in suspicious user activities, ultimately helping them more consistently address breaches before they occur.”

IBM QRadar User Behavior Analytics leverages data from customers’ existing QRadar investment giving them a single platform to analyze and manage security events and data. This integration saves security analysts from having to reload and curate data from multiple platforms to identify and investigate user behavior side-by-side with other indicators of compromise QRadar detects.

The solution helps security professionals guard against malicious threats through:

  • Risk Analysis Profiles – the app analyzes risky user actions and applies a score to anomalous behaviors helping to identify both potential rogue insiders and suspected cybercriminals using compromised credentials.
  • Prioritized Behavioral Analysis Dashboard – analysts can gain better visibility and understanding of actions that lead a user to open up a malicious document or how they gained escalated privileges. A single mouse click, or an attachment or link in a phishing email, for example, can add suspicious user activity to a watch list or permit a text-based annotation to explain the analyst’s observations.
  • Enhancing Existing QRadar Security Data – with user information pulled from the entire IT environment, security teams will be able to tap into the existing broad set of data sources and threat intelligence in QRadar to detect threats across users and assets.

With the recent acquisition of Resilient Systems, IBM has added the capability to easily respond to incidents elevated in the QRadar platform via the new User Behavior Analytics app. Available for free download on the IBM Security App Exchange, the QRadar User Behavior Analytics application is part of IBM’s open approach to developing security tools that can be leveraged in the fight against cybercrime.

Over the past two years, IBM has made significant moves to help security professionals worldwide collaborate to achieve an advantage over cybercriminals, including opening its 700 TB of threat data to the public with the launch of IBM X-Force Exchange. Built on X-Force Exchange intelligence, the IBM Security App Exchange has developed into an expansive online marketplace for partners and customers to share and download apps based on IBM Security technologies, such as IBM QRadar. The marketplace features dozens of 3rd party solutions to further clients’ ability to customize their security environment using IBM’s open platform approach.

About IBM Security 
IBM Security offers one of the most advanced and integrated portfolios of enterprise security products and services. The portfolio, supported by world-renowned IBM X-Force® research, enables organizations to effectively manage risk and defend against emerging threats. IBM operates one of the world’s broadest security research, development and delivery organizations, monitors 20 billion security events per day in more than 130 countries, and holds more than 3,000 security patents.

New approach to personal storage designed for a mobile, multi-device world

KPCB and Western Digital lead funding

REDWOOD CITY, CA – July 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Upthere announced the general availability of its new personal storage service and application. Upthere has built a smarter way to keep, find, and share a lifetime of files. It safely and privately stores files directly in the cloud, instead of keeping them on devices. Upthere also announced $77 million in total funding led by KPCB and Western Digital, along with Elevation Partners, Floodgate, GV, NTT Docomo Ventures, and Square 1 Bank. This funding gives Upthere the momentum to advance its technology and provide the best storage solution to customers.

“We built Upthere from the ground up to be the ultimate personal storage experience,” said Chris Bourdon, CEO of Upthere. “We can now live directly from the cloud instead of battling the limited space on our devices. With the cloud as our primary storage place, we can easily view, find, and share a lifetime of data from any device, anywhere.”

“Upthere solves a widespread capacity problem with current storage services,” said John Doerr, chairman of KPCB. “It is a new, ambitious effort to change how we save and share things in the cloud.”

Key features of Upthere include:

Upthere Home
The Upthere Home app serves as the window to everything kept in Upthere. It is designed to handle a lifetime of personal photos, videos, music, and documents. In order to make a lifetime of things accessible, Upthere automatically categorizes and groups files together for easy browsing. To find specific things, customers can type a few characters or tap on groups to filter down to just the relevant items. For example, tapping on dates in photos will zoom out to show a bird’s eye view of all photos organized by month and year. Tap again to zoom in on a set of photos.

Everything kept in Upthere is private by default. Since it’s already in the cloud, sharing is much easier. No data has to move around, so friends see shared content instantly. Every share relationship is captured in a new organizing feature called Loops.

Instead of folders, Upthere uses Loops — a simpler, more powerful organizational tool. A Loop can include any file and any file can be in any number of Loops. Loops can be private, shared with others, or published through a web link. Anyone in a Loop can invite others, add content, and make comments. It is the best way for small groups of friends and family to share.

UpOS
The Upthere core technology is a new operating system called UpOS™. UpOS is built to support an ever-expanding amount of content being created in different formats from different devices and services. It is a deeply integrated set of technologies that spans device and cloud, connecting the two together to deliver a smarter storage experience. The cloud part reliably stores content and makes it ubiquitously accessible, discoverable, and shareable. On the device, the UpOS framework, embedded in the Upthere Home app, transparently performs operations directly to the cloud. By bridging cloud and device, UpOS makes it possible to treat the cloud as our primary storage place, bypassing the limitations imposed by legacy technologies like backup and sync.

Pricing and Availability
Upthere Home is available now for Android, iPhone, Mac, and Windows (beta). Upthere is just USD $4.99 per month which includes the Upthere Home app for all platforms, the Upthere service, and 200GB of storage. If more storage is needed, 100GB increments are available for $1.99 per month. Unlike other cloud services, Upthere does not count shared against storage quotas. All new users may get started today with a free three-month trial. A credit card is not required. More information may be found at our blog – https://goo.gl/4bncQa

About Upthere
Upthere is transforming the personal storage market by providing a new and better way to keep, find, and share what’s important and meaningful. It provides an enhanced storage experience designed to be the one home for all of your photos, videos, documents, and music. Upthere is available on Android Phone, iPhone, macOS, Windows and the Web. Upthere is headquartered in Redwood City, California. Investors include KPCB, Western Digital, Elevation Partners, Floodgate, GV, and NTT Docomo Ventures.

Cross-Cloud Data Migration Tools Eliminate Lock-In; Information Lifecycle Management Tools Further Optimize Cloud Storage Costs; Identity Management Integrations Enable Simple, Secure User Authentication

NEW YORK and PETACH TIKVAH, Israel – July 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — CTERA Networks today introduced new cloud data management capabilities that allow enterprise organizations to easily and securely implement comprehensive file service and data protection strategies. The enhancements to the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform enable IT organizations to migrate data across any data center and cloud infrastructure, optimize storage infrastructure costs through intelligent file management, and simplify user access to enterprise data through new identity management integrations.

The CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform enables enterprise IT to protect data and manage files across endpoints, offices, and the cloud – all within the organization’s on-premises or virtual on-premises cloud storage. The platform is powered by CTERA’s cloud service delivery middleware that IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) organizations leverage to create, deliver, and manage cloud storage-based services such as enterprise file sync and share (EFSS), in-cloud data protection, endpoint and remote server backup, and office storage modernization.

New enhancements to the CTERA Enterprise File Services Platform include:

Cloud Data Storage Migration: Organizations can now migrate data across cloud storage infrastructure without experiencing system downtime or end user service interruption. By seamlessly migrating data across storage nodes of any type or location, the CTERA Platform enables applications and data to easily and securely flow from one data center to any other data center, helping organizations to avoid vendor and/or platform lock-in, and embrace cloud strategies with confidence.

Information Lifecycle Management: The CTERA Platform leverages information lifecycle management tools from Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and NetApp StorageGRID to intelligently place files in cloud storage tiers according to their application profile. Long-term archive and backup data can be directed to low cost storage tiers, such as Amazon Web Services’s (AWS) Amazon S3-Standard Infrequent Access tier (Standard – IA), while interactive data (EFSS content) can be stored on storage tiers that offer cost-optimized ingress and egress, helping to reduce customers’ overall cloud infrastructure investments by 10 to 20 percent.

SAML 2.0 and Support for Leading Single Sign-On (SSO) Utilities: CTERA now supports identity federation over Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) 2.0 to enable IT organizations to centralize corporate user identity management and provide SSO capabilities for file and backup access. In conjunction with support for this new standard, CTERA has now certified compatibility with leading SSO offerings, including Microsoft ADFS 2.0, Okta, OneLogin, and Ping Identity.

“As customers increasingly migrate their businesses to AWS, they realize the full value of our infrastructure as they reduce operational costs, scale their systems quickly and optimize for their strategic initiatives,” said Bill Vass, Vice President of Technology, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We’re working with companies like CTERA to help IT organizations on their journey to secure cloud file services delivery and to intelligently utilize and optimize AWS engineering that enables the greatest levels of application performance and value.”

“Organizations with the ability to leverage the right clouds for the right jobs are going to deliver significant business gains as they embrace new models of IT consumption,” said Jeff Denworth, SVP Marketing, CTERA. “CTERA’s IT-as-a-Service platform addresses multiple enterprise use cases with a single platform designed to help IT organizations become more efficient and enterprise end users become more productive.”

Quality Service and Support are critical to the success of Interstate National Corporation, a leading nationwide provider of service contracts and extended warranty programs

BOSTON, MA – July, 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Interstate National Corporation, a leading nationwide provider of service contracts and extended warranties, chose RestorePoint to be their Data Protection Managed Service Provider. RestorePoint has implemented an innovative agentless Data Virtualization platform powered by Actifio to help the company innovate and revolutionize its recovery cycles and revenue impacts.

Since 1980, Interstate National Corporation has been continually pioneering new technologies, providing significant value to both partners and customers. Interstate National Corporation offers turn-key programs, exceptional support and flexible products – all while delivering peace of mind to the end-consumer and their Insurers, Agents and Dealers.

For data protection and data recovery, Interstate National’s IT team requires tight Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs – how fast) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPOs – how far back) to support the demands of their customers and adeptness in the marketplace. With Actifio, RestorePoint’s enterprise Data Virtualization platform, implemented across all Interstate National Corporation locations, provides a fully managed, end-to-end data protection solution.

Addressing the Challenges
Interstate National Corporation engaged RestorePoint to help solve a critical business challenge regarding their data protection services when their current solution was no longer meeting their needs. Interstate National Corporation’s agent-based solution was unreliable for data backups and the product’s limited functionality did not allow for efficient offsite data replication or the ability to instantly mount data.

Finding the Solution
RestorePoint’s Data Virtualization platform, powered by Actifio, leverages an innovative Fingerprint Technology to proactively map client’s backup data to the original source and ensure it is free of any corrupt data. Additionally, Actifio software captures and stores data in its native format, which allows RestorePoint to instantly recover data to meet Interstate National’s RTO and RPO objectives.

RestorePoint’s Data Virtualization platform was a natural fit for Interstate National Corporation’s data protection requirements. The RestorePoint solution, implemented across all business locations, provides a fully managed, end-to-end data protection platform customized specifically for Interstate National’s business needs.

“With RestorePoint’s solution, Interstate has been able to reduce the amount of manpower needed to manage and monitor our data backups across all of our locations in the US,” said Robert Kollar, Director of IT at Interstate National Corporation.

Data Virtualization Hard at Work
RestorePoint’s Data Virtualization platform has inherent checks and balances, which provides its clients the confidence that data backups will translate into recoverable data at any time.

As a case in point, during a routine restore request for Interstate National’s VM images, RestorePoint engineers identified that a particular VM was not restorable and they needed to troubleshoot the issue quickly. Even though the system logs showed a successful VM data backup, the RestorePoint engineering team determined there was a software bug within VMware Change Block Tracking (CBT) that corrupted the VMware incremental backup.

“By tapping into Actifio’s innovative Fingerprint Technology within the RestorePoint Data Virtualization platform, we could determine if and when there was corruption to the VMware data during the backup process,” said Abdul Altamimi, CTO and Founder of RestorePoint. “We have seen this feature come into play numerous times, and thus has enabled us to take proactive measures to protect our client’s environments when issues arise.”

Evaluating the Immediate Benefits
RestorePoint implemented the Data Virtualization platform for Interstate National Corporation with no impact to business operations. RestorePoint delivered a full backup and restore of the VM environment and provided Interstate National’s organization with powerful and innovative capabilities. Interstate National can enjoy a new simplicity and confidence in Data Backup and Disaster Recovery with RestorePoint’s Data Virtualization platform.

Becoming an extension of Interstate National’s IT team, RestorePoint is positioned as a trusted advisor and counsel to new technologies. Leveraging Actifio with Interstate National has helped to solidify a strong business partnership that will continue to grow.

“We were excited with the opportunity to migrate our VM backup and recovery solution to Actifio and are glad that we did. Actifio is a simple to use yet a powerful platform that provides great RTO & RPO resiliency,” said Chris Alfaras, CTO of Interstate National Dealer Corporation.

FIPS 140-2 Certification Allows Public Sector to Harness Efficiency and Cost-Savings of Hyperconverged Secondary Storage

SANTA CLARA, CA – July 26, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced that its encryption solution has been certified to meet federal data protection standards. This certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) allows for government agencies that handle sensitive information to realize the benefits of hyperconverged secondary storage, and demonstrates Cohesity’s commitment to serving organizations in the public sector.

Tweet This: .@Cohesity Encryption Certified to Meet Federal Standards for Protecting Sensitive Data: http://ctt.ec/d_0r8+

To achieve Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 certification, government-approved lab tests of the encryption module were run not in isolation but as part of the storage platform and on the same hardware that Cohesity deploys at customer sites. This offers more complete security assurance than other vendors that run tests on their cryptographic library but not their fully mated solution. It is analogous to validating that a lock actually secures a house, rather than just showing that the lock works.

Validation that Cohesity’s solution meets FIPS 140-2 requirements enables the company to bid on government projects within federal civilian agencies, the Department of Defense, and the Intelligence Community. U.S. law mandates that federal agencies and federal systems integrators (FSIs), such as General Dynamics and CSRA, protect sensitive information in computer and telecommunication systems (including voice systems) using cryptographic-based security systems that are certified to meet FIPS 140-2.

Cohesity’s encryption module is fully software-implemented, which gives customers the flexibility to use the latest and greatest hardware available. In addition, Cohesity offers customers access to FedRAMP certified cloud storage through its integration with AWS GovCloud.

“We have made tremendous progress in the year following the public launch of Cohesity’s radically efficient secondary storage platform, and we are proud to offer this cutting-edge technology to some of the most highly regulated IT environments in the U.S. government sector,” said Mohit Aron, founder and CEO of Cohesity. “We look forward to adding new installations across a wide range of government agencies by working with our partners that serve the public sector.”

“With FIPS 140-2 certification and AWS GovCloud support, we can bring Cohesity’s next generation, web-scale, hyperconverged solution for consolidating secondary storage to our federal customers,” said Brent Van Scyoc, vice president of federal sales for Alliance Technology Group. “Federal customers backup and content storage needs are exploding. Cohesity’s technology will allow them to simplify secondary data storage and substantially drive down their costs.”

About Cohesity
Cohesity delivers the industry’s first hyperconverged secondary storage system for consolidating backup, test/dev, file services, and analytic datasets, onto an infinitely scalable, intelligent data platform. With Cohesity, IT organizations achieve far greater operational efficiency and agility in managing their data assets on-premise and in the cloud. Cohesity counts Credit Acceptance, Cvent, GS1, and Tribune Media among its growing base of enterprise customers. For more information, visit www.cohesity.com

CLIFTON PARK, NY – July 27, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acrosync LLC today is pleased to announce the release and immediate availability of Duplicacy 1.0, their next-generation cross-platform cloud backup tool for Mac OS X. Duplicacy is based on the principal of lock-free deduplication, which allows multiple clients to back up their data to the same storage destination simultaneously, to achieve cross-computer deduplication, without the need for any file locks, thus making it readily work with various cloud storage services.

Thanks to its lock-free deduplication method, Duplicacy allows users to backup their data to most popular cloud storage services without losing access to the essential features that are expected of a state-of-the-art backup tool. The app also supports data backup to local disks and SFTP servers, making it easy to backup user data to Mac or Linux computers, or NAS boxes.

The app also offers an elegant graphical user interface which makes it easy to quickly setup and execute any data backup process, be it to a remote cloud server, or to local storage. Using the simple to follow GUI, backups can be set to create full snapshots of the data, each of which is in fact an incremental backup in the sense that only files that have been changed since the last backup will be transferred. Backups can be scheduled to automatically run at frequencies from every half an hour up to once a week, depending on the customer’s backup requirements. Duplicacy can also be set to send an email after the completion of every backup.

“Duplicacy offers users the flexibility to backup their Mac or Windows computers to almost any available form of storage, be it local, cloud-based, or even their own SFTP server or NAS boxes,” says Gilbert Chen, owner of Acrosync. “We believe Duplicity is a complete backup solution that will meet the needs of every user, whether they’re a personal user who just wants to make sure their single Mac is securely backed up, or the corporate user who has hundreds of Macs or PCs that need to be backed up in a reliable manner.”

Features:
* Incremental Backup: Backs up only the data that has changed since the last backup
* Full Snapshot: While each backup is incremental, it behaves like a full backup for easy restore and deletion
* Deduplication: Identical files are stored as one copy, and identical parts from different files are stored as one copy
* Encryption: Encrypts not only file contents but also information such as file paths, sizes, times, and more
* Deletion: Every backup can be deleted independently without affecting other backups
* Concurrent Access: Multiple clients can back up to the same storage simultaneously
* Snapshot Migration: All or selected snapshots can be migrated from one storage location to another

Duplicacy currently supports a number of popular cloud storage services, including: Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Microsoft Azure, Dropbox, and Backblaze. It also supports backup to local disk drives, SFTP servers, and NAS boxes.

In addition to using the handy GUI for operating Duplicacy, users can also invoke the backup engine from the command line, offering the flexibility to run the powerful solution from custom scripts. A number of features, such as adding additional storage, copying backups from one storage to another, and changing encryption passwords, are only available in the command line version.

Duplicacy commercial users also gain access to the source code for the app, at no additional charge. Source code access allows users to gain a better understanding of how Duplicacy works, and can be secure in the knowledge that important backups will always be kept safe and will never fail. Users can also customize the powerful Duplicacy source code, to add new features they require in order to match their own unique backup needs.

System Requirements:
* Mac OS X 10.10 or higher
* 64-bit processor
* 21.5 MB

Pricing and Availability:
Duplicacy 1.0 is free for personal use, and is available worldwide exclusively through the Duplicacy website.

Enterprise Strategy Group survey indicates adoption of IBM Bluemix cloud platform is growing at a rate of 5X faster than other vendors

ARMONK, NY – 26 Jul 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ – IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that developers and IT managers across the U.S. cited IBM Bluemix as one of the fastest growing and one of the most widely adopted platforms as a service (PaaS) according to a new survey from the analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).

According to ESG’s analysis of the survey results, Bluemix adoption is growing at a rate 5 times faster on average than the other leading vendors in the PaaS market. The survey results encompass hundreds of North American developers and IT managers who ranked IBM Bluemix ahead of the competition in areas including internal application development, PaaS satisfaction, PaaS benefits and future IT needs. IBM also won high praise for Bluemix being the world’s largest Cloud Foundry deployment, with more than 150 APIs and services in 179 countries.

Other survey findings include:

  • Bluemix is growing more than 5X faster than the leading PaaS vendors based on average growth since general availability.
  • Bluemix was one of the fastest growing platforms across developers and IT managers who are either using Bluemix or evaluating what PaaS to use.
  • Bluemix developers are more focused on custom application development than any other PaaS vendor.
  • Benefits where Bluemix maintained a leadership positon over other PaaS vendors included access to a wide range of PaaS capabilities and the ability to improve the quality of their applications.
  • Areas where Bluemix drove levels of satisfaction to levels higher than any other PaaS vendor included mobile application development capabilities, security features and cost effectiveness.
  • Over the next two years, Bluemix users indicated that the platform would remain critical to their application development needs versus using other tools from competitive vendors.

The survey results reinforce IBM’s success and traction in hybrid cloud. IBM’s total cloud revenue — including public, private and hybrid engagements — was $11.6 billion over the previous 12 months that ended in June 2016. IBM’s cloud delivered as a service business had an annual run rate of $6.7 billion in Q2, up 50 percent year to year, a subset of the total, which includes PaaS.

“The platform-as-a-service market is experiencing high growth and currently favors well established application development and deployment vendors who provide both PaaS and IaaS capabilities,” said Stephen D. Hendrick, principal analyst for application development research at ESG.

Cloud providers are taking notice of this shift to capture business from developers and IT managers who want more sophisticated cloud offerings, such as mission-critical application development, testing and deployment delivered through PaaS.

IBM is adding 20,000 new developers to Bluemix each week, helping companies launch more than 120,000 new apps a month, including support for cognitive/Watson, Internet of Things and blockchain. Bluemix also boasts a catalog of more than 150 APIs from IBM and partners like GitHub and Gigster, who are all adopting IBM Cloud. In addition, 200+ universities, and thousands of startups use IBM Bluemix and the company’s Garages (San Francisco, London, Toronto, Tokyo, Singapore, Nice and New York), with more launching in 2016 (Melbourne).

Evaluation based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – July 25, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Egnyte, the premiere cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance, today announced it has been named a Leader in the July 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS). The Magic Quadrant has recognized Egnyte for its completeness of vision and ability to execute for Egnyte Connect, its smart content collaboration solution.

According to Gartner, “leaders provide mature offerings that meet market demand. They have demonstrated the vision necessary to sustain their market positions as requirements evolve. The hallmark of Leaders is that they focus and invest in their offerings to lead the market and affect its overall direction. Leaders can be the vendors to watch as you try to understand how new offerings might evolve. Leaders typically possess a significant, satisfied customer base and enjoy high visibility in the market. Their size and maturity enable them to remain viable under changing market conditions. Leaders typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements. However, they may fail to meet the specific needs of vertical markets or other more specialized segments.”

“Businesses are always looking for new solutions to increase productivity and reduce cost while keeping privacy and security on the top of their priority list,” said Vineet Jain, co-founder and CEO at Egnyte. “We believe being named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant validates Egnyte’s ability to provide the market with a secure, collaborative content solution that can positively transform their digital workplace. Our open, hybrid architecture is what sets us apart and enables us to leverage content analytics to increase productivity, strengthen privacy, and maximize efficiency of cloud and on premises IT environments.”

Egnyte attributes this recognition to a number of significant achievements over the past year:

  • Introduced Egnyte Protect in June 2016 – the industry’s first and only SaaS, hybrid content governance solution. Egnyte Protect unifies all company content under a centralized set of policies, providing powerful and easy-to-use tools to protect employee and customer privacy.
  • Announced Egnyte Key Management offering in March 2016 — an enterprisegrade data encryption solution designed to provide organizations with the broadest offering of choice for both privacy and security. Egnyte is the only company to offer full end-to-end encryption with a solution that allows customers to store encryption keys on-premises or on the Egnyte, Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure clouds.
  • Launched a Smart Reporting and Auditing service in October 2015, which leverages content analytics to provide IT leaders and business users with actionable intelligence to take control of their content sharing systems and gain a better visual understanding of user behavior.
  • Released new integrations for Microsoft Office 365 in September 2015, which enable business users to seamlessly access, manage and share all of their files from the Web, desktop or mobile.
  • Unveiled the Egnyte Technology Partner Program in September 2015 to provide enhanced value-added services on top of Egnyte’s open, hybrid technology, including deeper integrations with Google, Microsoft, Salesforce, and others.

“Gartner defines the enterprise file synchronization and sharing market as “A range of cloud-based or on-premises offerings that enables individuals to synchronize and share files (such as documents, photos and videos) among mobile devices and PCs. Sharing can happen among people (for example, partners and customers) within or outside the organization, as well as among applications. Smooth search, retrieval and access of files stored in multiple data repositories (e.g., file servers or content management platforms) from different client devices complement these offerings, as well as security, data protection and collaboration capabilities.”

Renewed C-Suite focus on business continuity raises security, compliance and speed requirements for DRaaS and BaaS

HOUSTON, TX – July 26, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — In the face of cyber-attacks, infrastructure failures, human error and other threats, companies are now prioritizing Business Continuity initiatives that have traditionally been an afterthought. As part of these efforts, teams increasingly focus on the security and compliance of cloud-based disaster recovery and backup. iland, an award-winning cloud provider, today announced this strategic shift towards ensuring secure, fast and compliant IT resilience has fueled its growth across the United States, EMEA and Singapore markets.

iland’s industry-recognized Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service (DRaaS) and Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) offerings have achieved a 248 percent revenue growth rate in the first half of 2016. The company also more than doubled its number of new DRaaS and BaaS customers across diverse industries ranging from healthcare to financial services to oil and gas.

Gartner Inc. recently named iland a Leader in the 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Disaster Recovery as a Service”* for its ability to execute and completeness of vision. According to the report, “Gartner estimates the DRaaS market will nearly triple in the next three years to a revenue point of $3.4 billion by 2019.” – http://info.iland.com/gartner-draas-mq

“IT teams and the C-suite now see Business Continuity not just as insurance against rare natural disasters but as a thorough line of defense in the fight against malicious attack, ransomware and the ever-present risk of human error,” said Justin Giardina, CTO at iland. “But while executives accept IT resilience as an imperative, they also recognize it is yet another priority on IT’s exhausting to-do list. We alleviate that burden, partnering with industry leaders like Veeam and Zerto to give customers the fastest access to exceptional technology and a secure, reliable, compliant target location in the iland cloud.”

As business threats plague IT leadership, iland’s industry-leading DRaaS and BaaS offerings play a vital role in protecting business and evolving overall IT strategies. The rapid adoption rates directly correspond to key trends and best practices: 

  • Companies adopt Backup-as-a-Service as the natural first step to geographic diversification, sending secondary copies to a secure location with less than five minutes of setup time. For very little expense, companies can protect themselves from the crippling costs of data loss, compliance fines and even malicious threats like ransomware. These efficiencies spark rapid adoption, making BaaS the largest contributor to iland’s expanding customer base.
  • DRaaS has become the standard when every second counts, enabling companies to minimize IT downtime that is often measured in the thousands of dollars per minute. Going beyond other DRaaS offerings, iland’s technology and expert support team ensure every step of disaster recovery planning, implementation and execution is seamless. Through the iland cloud console, customers can easily trigger failovers and failover tests to iland’s cloud on demand.
  • Security requirements now lead the discussion, with customers rightly requiring their cloud targets to incorporate security and compliance features. iland has responded to this trend with integrated antivirus and malware protection, vulnerability scanning, storage and VM encryption, intrusion detection and prevention, file integrity monitoring and the on-demand reporting required for compliance audits.
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery prove to be stepping stones to broader cloud migration, as the process of implementing and testing these services exposes customers to the ease of use, cost model, and benefits of cloud. iland helps customers identify their IT risk, technology requirements, and budgetary goals to deliver a complete business continuity plan, with accommodation for physical servers, co-location and complex networking. As a result, customers increasingly fail over to the iland cloud as part of a DR effort and choose to remain there, rather than failing back.
  • In a disaster, companies report exceptional phone support is critical, as it provides the last piece of assurance a failover will succeed. iland support ensures on-boarding is smooth and failover tests are successful but also closely monitors any failovers triggered to the iland cloud to proactively verify success for each and every customer.

Industry recognition underscores strength of services and commitment to customers
Customers, industry analysts and partners around the globe continue to validate iland’s proven DRaaS offering. Recent accolades include:

  • 2016 Zerto Cloud Service Provider Partner of the Year
  • 2015 Veeam Service Provider of the Year, North America
  • Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) designation under the Cisco® Cloud and Managed Services Advanced Certification

Customers participating in the early adopter program can use the fully-managed cloud service to automatically and securely backup data on employee laptops and desktops and archive email, reducing the risk of data loss from breaches and lost or stolen endpoint devices. In addition to protecting against data loss, the SaaS offerings enable enterprise-wide compliance and eDiscovery of data on endpoints and in email.
  • On June 2, 2016, Commvault announced that MEDITECH, a leading provider of electronic health records (EHRs), certified Commvault’s data protection and recovery solution for its EHR system with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) 3PAR Storage Arrays. With this certification, healthcare providers will have access to a fully integrated and modernized data management solution that can backup, archive and recover MEDITECH applications, as well as clinical, business and other applications and data, both on premise and in the cloud via MEDITECH’s network of solution integrators and hosting service providers.
  • On April 19, 2016, Commvault announced support for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Snowball, a secure petabyte-scale transport solution to help companies migrate large amounts of data into and out of the AWS Cloud. Commvault’s strategic relationship with AWS helps customers move to the cloud faster, more efficiently, and more securely than a traditional Internet connection. The announcement underscores Commvault’s leadership in providing customers with new options to leverage the cloud for disaster recovery, development/test, and other workloads while keeping their data protected and accessible at all times.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Commvault has provided in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP income from operations margin, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. This selected financial information has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Commvault uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage and evaluate its business and make operating decisions. In addition, Commvault believes these non-GAAP operating measures are useful to investors, when used as a supplement to GAAP financial measures, in evaluating Commvault’s ongoing operational performance. Commvault believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in evaluating ongoing operating results and trends, and in comparing its financial results with other companies in Commvault’s industry, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to the investment community. Finally, Commvault has provided software, services and total revenues on a constant currency basis. Commvault analyzes revenue growth on a constant currency basis in order to provide a comparable framework for assessing how the business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency fluctuations.

All of these non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or superior to, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, which are provided in Table IV. (Download Financial Tables)

Non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. These non-GAAP financial measures exclude noncash stock-based compensation charges and additional FICA and related payroll tax expense incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards. Commvault believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful metrics for management and investors because they compare Commvault’s core operating results over multiple periods. When evaluating the performance of Commvault’s operating results and developing short and long term plans, Commvault does not consider such expenses. Although noncash stock-based compensation and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses are necessary to attract and retain employees, Commvault places its primary emphasis on stockholder dilution as compared to the accounting charges related to such equity compensation plans. In addition, because of the varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions such as volatility, which are outside of Commvault’s control and the variety of awards that companies can issue, Commvault believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude noncash stock-based compensation expense and the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred on stock option exercises and vesting of restricted stock awards allow investors to make meaningful comparisons between Commvault’s operating results and those of other companies.

There are a number of limitations related to the use of non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. The most significant limitation is that these non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain operating costs, primarily related to noncash stock-based compensation, which is of a recurring nature. Noncash stock-based compensation has been, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future, a significant recurring expense in Commvault’s operating results. In addition, noncash stock-based compensation is an important part of Commvault’s employees’ compensation and can have a significant impact on their performance. Lastly, the components Commvault excludes in its non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the components that its peer companies exclude when they report their non-GAAP financial measures.

Commvault’s management generally compensates for limitations described above related to the use of non-GAAP financial measures by providing investors with a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Further, Commvault management uses non-GAAP financial measures only in addition to, and in conjunction with, results presented in accordance with GAAP.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS. Non-GAAP net income excludes noncash stock-based compensation, the additional FICA and related payroll tax expenses incurred by Commvault when employees exercise in the money stock options or vest in restricted stock awards. Commvault has also excluded its share of earnings from its equity method investment. In addition, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS incorporate a non-GAAP effective tax rate of 37% in fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2016.

Commvault anticipates that in any given period its non-GAAP tax rate may be either higher or lower than the GAAP tax rate as evidenced by historical fluctuations. On an annual basis, the GAAP tax rate was 37% for fiscal 2014 and 34% for fiscal 2015. The GAAP tax rates for fiscal 2016 and the first quarter of fiscal 2017 are not meaningful percentages due to the dollar amount of GAAP pre-tax income. From a cash tax perspective, the cash tax rate is estimated to be 18% for fiscal 2014 and 26% for fiscal 2015. For the same reason as the GAAP tax rates, the estimated cash tax rates for fiscal 2016 and the first quarter of fiscal 2017 are not meaningful percentages. Estimated cash taxes to be paid for both fiscal 2016 and 2017 are expected to be less than $5 million. Commvault defines its cash tax rate as the total amount of cash income taxes payable for the fiscal year divided by consolidated GAAP pre-tax income. Over the next few years, Commvault believes its GAAP and cash tax rates will align.

Commvault measured itself to non-GAAP tax rates of 37% in fiscal 2016 and will continue to measure itself to a non-GAAP tax rate of 37% in fiscal 2017. Commvault believes that the use of a non-GAAP tax rate is a useful measure as it allows management and investors to compare its operating results on a more consistent basis over the multiple periods presented in its earnings release without the impact of significant variations in the tax rate as more fully described above. Non-GAAP EPS is derived from non-GAAP net income divided by the weighted average shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis.

Commvault considers non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted EPS useful metrics for Commvault management and its investors for the same basic reasons that Commvault uses non-GAAP income from operations and non-GAAP income from operations margin. In addition, the same limitations as well as management actions to compensate for such limitations described above also apply to Commvault’s use of non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS.

Computacenter collaborates with ownCloud and Red Hat to present a robust solution that goes beyond traditional file servers. The Infinite File Service (IFS) unifies scalability, performance and increased security.

MUNICH / NUREMBERG – July 26, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Computacenter has developed a cloud solution using ownCloud and Red Hat technologies that is controlled locally, offers high performance and scales without any known boundaries. The “Infinite File Service” (IFS) solution includes the ownCloud Enterprise Edition, object storage using Red Hat Ceph Storage, and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Computacenter claims IFS is the best fit for European industry players with global activities, that need to offer their employees access to data and files anywhere and on any device.

In order to attract the most talented people, companies today need to offer smart access to data and the ability to work from anywhere. There are public cloud offerings available with this approach, however can present compliance risks. “Following the end of the European Court of Justice’s ‘Safe Harbour Agreement,’ there is no legal foundation for European companies to sensibly store personal data inside the USA,” says Holger Dyroff, COO of ownCloud. “With our Enterprise Edition, companies have full control over their data, and can define the storage location according to their requirements. ‘Federated Cloud Sharing’ enables our customers to organise different instances as one cloud. The gold partnership with Computacenter and the technology collaboration with Red Hat enables us to offer a strong and competitive solution.”

Traditional file servers are no longer the most effective way of keeping pace with the requirements in today’s business environment. Access for remote and mobile devices to old network set-ups can be almost impossible. In addition, file storage can often be far too slow and expensive when compared to object storage.

Computacenter sees a huge need for Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) solutions at its largest customers. Computacenter’s Solution Manager Norbert Steiner and his team analysed the offerings of ownCloud and Red Hat. “ownCloud Enterprise convinced us because of its extreme scalability and performance. We love the easy way of co-branding for our customers,” says Erich Vogel, cloud leader at Computacenter. “And, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform enables us to provide and implement applications with breath-taking speed with a vast array of extensions. Red Hat Ceph Storage provides a robust, software-defined solution for both object and block storage. Through the close collaboration of Computacenter, ownCloud and Red Hat, we can offer an integrated, fully tested and supported solution which is easy to deploy, can be extended with the growing amount of users and data and is designed to operate without disruption – all based on powerful open source technology and innovation.”

“Together, ownCloud and Red Hat Ceph Storage provide a highly scalable, efficient and cost-effective alternative to conventional file service solutions,” said Gerald Sternagl, EMEA Business Unit Manager at Red Hat. “We look forward to building on our collaboration with Computacenter and ownCloud via IFS to provide solutions that can meet the needs of data-intensive cloud environments.”

A new tool containing 160,000+ keys will help victims to retrieve their data

WOBURN, MA – July 25, 2016 – /BackupReview.info/ — Today, the Dutch National Police, Europol, Intel Security and Kaspersky Lab join forces to launch an initiative called No More Ransom, a new step in the cooperation between law enforcement and the private sector to fight ransomware together. No More Ransom (www.nomoreransom.org) is a new online portal aimed at informing the public about the dangers of ransomware and helping victims to recover their data without having to pay ransom to the cybercriminals.

Ransomware is a type of malware that locks the victims’ computer or encrypts their data, demanding them to pay a ransom in order to regain control over the affected device or files. Ransomware is a top threat for EU law enforcement: almost two-thirds of EU Member States are conducting investigations into this form of malware attack. While the target is often individual users’ devices, corporate and even government networks are affected as well. The number of victims is growing at an alarming rate: according to Kaspersky Lab, the number of users attacked by crypto-ransomware rose by 550 percent, from 131,000 in 2014-2015 to 718,000 in 2015-2016.

NoMoreRansom.org
The aim of the online portal www.nomoreransom.org is to provide a helpful online resource for victims of ransomware. Users can find information on what ransomware is, how it works and, most importantly, how to protect themselves. Awareness is key as there are no decryption tools for all existing types of malware available to this day. If you are infected, the chances are high that the data will be lost forever. Exercising a conscious internet use following a set of simple cyber security tips can help avoid the infection in the first place.

The project provides users with tools that may help them recover their data once it has been locked by criminals. In its initial stage, the portal contains four decryption tools for different types of malware, the latest developed in June 2016 for the Shade variant.

Shade is a ransomware-type Trojan that emerged in late 2014. The malware is spread via malicious websites and infected email attachments. After getting into the user’s system, Shade encrypts files stored on the machine and creates a .txt file containing the ransom note and instructions from cybercriminals on what to do to get user’s personal files back. Shade use strong decryption algorithm for each encrypted file, with two random 256-bit AES keys generated: one is used to encrypt the file’s contents, while the other is used to encrypt the file name.

Since 2014, Kaspersky Lab and Intel Security prevented more than 27,000 attempts to attack users with Shade Trojan. Most of the infections occurred in Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Austria and Kazakhstan. Shade activity was also registered in France, Czech Republic, Italy, and the US.

By working closely together and sharing information between different parties, the Shade command and control server used by criminals to store keys for decryption was seized, and the keys were shared with Kaspersky Lab and Intel Security. That helped to create a special tool which victims can download from the No More Ransom portal to retrieve their data without paying the criminals. The tool contains more than 160,000 keys.

Public – private cooperation
The project has been envisioned as a non-commercial initiative aimed at bringing public and private institutions under the same umbrella. Due to the changing nature of ransomware, with cybercriminals developing new variants on a regular basis, this portal is open to new partners’ cooperation.

Wilbert Paulissen, Director of the National Criminal Investigation Division of National Police of the Netherlands: “We, the Dutch police, cannot fight against cybercrime and ransomware in particular, alone. This is a joint responsibility of the police, the justice department, Europol, and ICT companies, and requires a joint effort. This is why I am very happy about the police’s collaboration with Intel Security and Kaspersky Lab. Together we will do everything in our power to disturb criminals’ money making schemes and return files to their rightful owners without the latter having to pay loads of money.”

“The biggest problem with crypto-ransomware today is that when users have precious data locked down, they readily pay criminals to get it back,” says Jornt van der Wiel, Security Researcher at Global Research and Analysis Team, Kaspersky Lab. “That boosts the underground economy, and we are facing an increase in the number of new players and the number of attacks as a result. We can only change the situation if we coordinate our efforts to fight against ransomware. The appearance of decryption tools is just the first step on this road. We expect this project to be extended, and soon there will be many more companies and law enforcement agencies from other countries and regions fighting ransomware together.”

“This initiative shows the value of public-private cooperation in taking serious action in the fight against cybercrime,” says Raj Samani, EMEA CTO for Intel Security. “This collaboration goes beyond intelligence sharing, consumer education, and takedowns to actually help repair the damage inflicted upon victims. By restoring access to their systems, we empower users by showing them they can take action and avoid rewarding criminals with a ransom payment.”

Wil van Gemert, Europol Deputy Director Operations, finally: “For a few years now ransomware has become a dominant concern for EU law enforcement. It is a problem affecting citizens and business alike, computers and mobile devices, with criminals developing more sophisticated techniques to cause the highest impact on the victim’s data. Initiatives like the No More Ransom project shows that linking expertise and joining forces is the way to go in the successful fight against cybercrime. We expect to help many people to recover control over their files, while raising awareness and educating the population on how to maintain their devices clean from malware.”

Always report
Reporting ransomware to law enforcement is very important to help authorities get an overall clearer picture and thereby a greater capacity to mitigate the threat. The No More Ransom website offers to the victims the possibility to report a crime, directly connecting with Europol’s overview of national reporting mechanisms – https://www.europol.europa.eu/content/report-cybercrime

If you have somehow become a victim of ransomware, we advise you not to pay the ransom. By making the payment you will be supporting the cybercriminals’ business. Plus, there is no guarantee that paying the fine will give you back the access to the encrypted data.

About Kaspersky Lab
Kaspersky Lab is a global cybersecurity company founded in 1997. Kaspersky Lab’s deep threat intelligence and security expertise is constantly transforming into security solutions and services to protect businesses, critical infrastructure, governments and consumers around the globe.

IT leaders to give cloud thorough attention when outsourcing in order to achieve the necessary cyber resilience

LONDON, UK – July 26, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Organisations within the financial sector using, or considering, the cloud and other third party IT services must ensure they adhere to the new guidelines set out by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and carry out the appropriate security risk assessments. This is according to The Bunker who argue that a failure to do so will result in increased data security risks.

The FCA recently published new guidance for firms outsourcing to the cloud to clarify what is required of companies and to help firms effectively oversee all aspects of the lifecycle of their outsourcing arrangements. The guidelines usher in an increased support for the cloud. The FCA advocates that there is no reason why cloud services should not be implemented by financial services firms, as long as the appropriate consideration is applied in line with the rules set out. The FCA has urged financial firms to manage the operational risks associated with outsourcing by applying due-diligence with regards to IT providers, before committing to work with them, by agreeing a “data residence policy” with the chosen provider.

Phil Bindley, CTO at The Bunker, said: “Cloud is here to stay and it is experiencing increasing adoption due to the major benefits it brings. However, the issue of security is one that remains at the forefront of the cloud debate. Putting appropriate guidance in place and acknowledging the potential risks are two integral steps when it comes to ensuring that the security risks associated with the cloud are minimised. Under the new FCA guidelines, financial firms need to take the appropriate steps to mitigate security risks so that their overall security hygiene is acceptable, this will encourage financial institutions to really consider how and where they are storing their data.

“The cloud has the potential to act as a key enabler across financial institutions, however many of these firms have been apprehensive to adopt this technology, due to the security sensitive environment in which they operate. As a result, these guidelines should be welcomed. Not only do they bring in new support for the cloud, but they also address the risks associated with securing data.

“These guidelines should be embraced as they encourage firms to do their due diligence to make sure they understand the ways in which their data is stored, processed and managed. By way of example, included is the ability to request an on-site visit to the relevant premises owned and operated by the cloud provider. A salient element of this guidance is to help firms effectively oversee all aspects of their outsourcing arrangements. When outsourcing to the cloud, it’s vital for financial services firms to appoint a Cloud Services Provider who can offer the consistent cyber resilience necessary, as well as transparency throughout the entire lifecycle, failure to do so can put an organisation’s data in danger,” concludes Bindley.

With fully owned UK data centres outside the M25 yet within easy reach of London, we provide Managed Hosting, Colocation, and Cloud Infrastructure and Storage to businesses that value the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their applications and data.

256 Gigabit 3-Bits-Per-Cell Chip is the Smallest in the Industry

LONDON, UK – July 25, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Disaster recovery specialist Databarracks has launched a new DR service designed specifically to target cyber threats. Cyber-Disaster Recovery as a Service (Cyber-DRaaS) identifies cyber-attacks early and enables users to roll back to the last clean replication point in Databarracks’ secure DR environment.

Peter Groucutt, managing director at Databarracks, explains: “As a business continuity provider, we have a very unique view of cyber threats. We are called into action when defences have been breached and we need to get a customer back up and operating as quickly as possible. Cyber threats like ransomware and malware are the fastest-growing concern we hear from our customers around business continuity and the single biggest cause for significant recovery.

“Traditional disaster recovery isn’t optimised for cyber-attacks. Recovering from ransomware would mean trawling through historic versions of backups in order to find clean data then starting a lengthy recovery process.

“Our new Cyber-DRaaS uses replication to bring a fresh, continuity-led approach to cyber security. It offers a double-edged approach to cyber security, blending aggressive scanning and detection technologies with pro-active continuity planning. This means organisations can safely resolve cyber threats whilst continuing to support their business as usual processes.

“By combining our award-winning DRaaS platform with Trend Micro’s Deep Security, we’ve automated the process of finding the most recent clean replica of an organisation’s production systems. The result is that organisations can recover from ransomware or malware infections within the same Recovery Time Objectives offered by our DRaaS platform, which can be as little as 15 minutes, whilst automatically recovering to the most recent Recovery Point.”

Groucutt concludes: “Ultimately, cyber threats aren’t going anywhere. We understand the increased importance of protection at the perimeter, now it’s time for organisations to be proactive about their cyber security and business continuity. Cyber-DRaaS is the perfect first step.”

Enables Service Providers to Be Up and Running in Minutes with Easy-to-Use, Automated Cloud Solution that Protects All Servers, Workstations, and Mobile Devices, with Broadest Microsoft Support

BURLINGTON, MA – July 25, 2016 – /BackupReview.info/ – Acronis®, a leading provider of hybrid cloud data protection, today at HostingCon announced its latest update of Acronis Backup Cloud, a cutting-edge backup-as-a-service (BaaS) solution for service providers, hosters, and cloud resellers that provides complete data protection for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).  Today’s SMBs have been left exposed to data loss and malicious attacks due to inadequate solutions that do not protect the full spectrum of servers and user endpoints, including mobile devices, and Cloud services and applications, such as Microsoft Azure and Office 365. Acronis enables service providers to rapidly address these new and critical SMB data protection needs with the latest release of Acronis Backup Cloud – its easiest, fastest, most complete cloud backup solution ever.

“Whether it’s a lost mobile phone, a vulnerable cloud application, or a ransomware attack, today’s SMBs are at more risk than ever to data loss, and it will only get harder to stay protected,” said John Zanni, Chief Marketing Officer at Acronis. “Service providers and hosters have a huge opportunity to expand their business, and Acronis Backup Cloud gives them easy and almost instant access to this massive market.”

Get Up and Running with Industry-Leading Data Protection in Minutes
Acronis Backup Cloud provides service providers, hosters and cloud resellers with a turn-key backup as a service solution that is so easy to use, they can be up and running within minutes. Acronis Backup Cloud protects all servers, workstations and mobile devices, and extends to cloud services and applications to provide complete protection.

Acronis Backup Cloud easily plugs into the most common platforms in use by service providers and hosters today, including Linux, Virtuozzo, Azure, Docker, Open-Xchange, XEN Server, and KVM. The solution also backs up data and workloads across the full range of customer environments, including Microsoft, Amazon EC2, Windows and Office365, Linux, Mac, VMware, Hyper-V, RHEV, XEN, Oracle VM, Exchange, SQL Server, SharePoint, Active Directory, iOS, and Android.

Acronis Backup Cloud also integrates with the most popular cloud management solutions to automate customer billing, monitoring, and provisioning. This includes Odin Service Automation®, WHMCS®, HostBill®, APS Standard, LabTech, Windows Azure Pack, and Flexiant® Cloud Orchestrator.

Service providers can use a use a single powerful dashboard to deploy the software, manage customers, and monitor backups, all while supporting clients’ distributed business environments with multiple IT tiers and administration controls for users and groups.

Within hours, service providers can also deploy secure, private cloud destinations with their own storage or third-party cloud storage, and now with Acronis Software Defined Storage using commodity hardware. The new Acronis Storage option substantially lowers scale-out storage costs while overcoming the capex challenges related to traditional high-end storage offerings.

  • Unmatched Control Over Services - Allows service providers to offer a unique blend of customer self-service and white glove management to fit the needs of their customers.

“The managed infrastructure market remains robust with traditional hosting and infrastructure-as-a-service growing into a $70 billion market in 2016,” said Liam Eagle, Senior Analyst, Service Providers, 451 Research. “Working with technology vendors that deliver higher-order services and offer cohesive solutions for hybrid cloud IT environments are winning strategies for service providers, as they look to update their services with the latest backup and data protection.”

Zetta VP Sales Joe Nagy to Explore Why a More Tightly Focused Sales Strategy Wins More Accounts

SUNNYVALE, CA – July 21, 2016 — /BackupReview.info/ — Zetta, a leading provider of high-performance business continuity solutions, today announced that its Vice President of Sales, Joe Nagy, will be sharing Zetta’s streamlined approach to capturing vertical sales during the annual HostingCon conference, July 24-27, at the New Orleans Convention Center.  The conference is attended by a global cross section of managers from web hosting and cloud providers and software and service providers.  Nagy will map out a vertical sales strategy these providers can use to better target vertical industries and to focus on deep expertise to win select accounts.

Nagy’s “5 Ways to Build Increased Sales by Specializing in Vertical Markets” session is scheduled for Tuesday, July 26, at 11 AM.   “Finding the right mix of accounts is a classic challenge for any sales team.  At Zetta we are finding that the most successful approach is based on targeting a select group with similar solution needs. This has enabled us to provide a deeper, richer portfolio of solutions, rather than the typical ‘go wide’ approach which is unwieldy and less effective,” said Nagy.

During the session Nagy will describe how Zetta is offering its data protection and disaster recovery solutions to data and application-intensive industries such as financial services, legal services, healthcare, and creative professional services.  “I will show how targeting industries that have a commonality in terms of solution needs gives you the opportunity to provide deep expertise and become their ‘go-to’ choice,” said Nagy.  “You can become an integral part of their business by knowing their unique needs and being better equipped to offer well-targeted solutions.”

Nagy will detail criteria for vertical market selection, describe how to build out vertical market expertise, how to customize product portfolios and how providers can profit from making the best vertical market choices for their business.

Joe Nagy is Vice President of Sales at Zetta.  He has more than 25 years of enterprise sales experience across a diverse range of industries.
