Oversubscribed round comes less than nine months after series A raise

OTTAWA, ONTARIO – Sept. 16, 2021 — / — Rewind today announced the close of a USD $65 million Series B round of financing led by New York-based global private equity and venture capital firm Insight Partners to scale its efforts to provide backup and recovery solutions for the most widely used software-as-a-service (SaaS) tools for businesses. Bessemer Venture Partners, FundFire, Inovia Capital, Ridge Ventures, ScaleUp Ventures, and Union Ventures participated in the oversubscribed round. Atlassian Ventures, the investment arm of Atlassian (TEAM; NASDAQ) also made a strategic investment in Rewind as part of the Series B. The latest infusion of capital will help Rewind speed its product development pipeline so it can deliver data protection solutions for more business-critical SaaS applications as the threat of data breaches, user errors, cyberattacks, and ransomware continues to escalate.

Adoption of SaaS tools continues to surge, with businesses worldwide already managing 80 different applications at any given time on average and SaaS tools expected to dominate the business software landscape by 2025 with only 15 percent being non-SaaS solutions. While respected SaaS providers actively backup their cloud infrastructure, they do not make account-level, business-critical information (such as sales, marketing, and financial data) available to their users. Yet, most cloud and SaaS backup and recovery solutions continue to center on supporting a handful of massive, enterprise players. Rewind is filling a major gap by extending cloud backup and recovery to more SaaS tools. Rewind ensures that over 100,000 businesses around the globe can quickly recover from any data issue – giving them immediate access to comprehensive, usable backups in six essential SaaS applications that would otherwise go unprotected.

“While we’ve continued to double revenue and software subscribers year over year, every day our team talks with seasoned technology professionals who still do not realize they lack full control of their vital business data,” said Mike Potter, co-founder and CEO of Rewind. “We see tremendous opportunities to backup the entire cloud and are working towards that vision. This latest round of funding will allow us to expand our reach, bring additional SaaS backup solutions to the market, and raise awareness for the need to include all cloud and SaaS applications in a business’s backup and recovery strategy.”

“Cloud software dominates the modern business landscape, and the demand for cloud backup and recovery tools will continue to grow as businesses of all sizes, especially small and mid-size organizations, look to ensure business continuity by mitigating the fallout of data disasters and the incessant barrage of data attacks,” said John True, operating partner at Insight Partners. “We see Rewind as a pillar of the cloud backup and recovery space.”

??Since closing its Series A funding earlier this year, Rewind has significantly expanded its product offering. Adding more applications to its suite of solutions through both in-house development and a strategic acquisition, Rewind now backs up more than 53 billion data points in top cloud apps such as BigCommerce, GitHub, QuickBooks Online, Shopify, Shopify Plus, and Trello for customers in more than 100 countries.

The company also continues to actively build out its team to support its global expansion, recently surpassing the 100 employee mark and appointing seasoned technology leader Jason Karsh as Chief Marketing Officer. With more than two decades of experience in senior marketing positions at eBay, Kijiji and Workopolis, he will focus on growing the company’s brand presence and elevating awareness of the needs for Rewind’s services. Rewind plans to triple in size by the end of next year.

John True of Insight Partners will join the Rewind Board of Directors, while Jared Rosen of Insight Partners and Hugues Lalancette of Inovia Capital will join as observers.

Organizations will be able to connect Box to the rest of their stack with over 600 connectors for common apps like Slack, Salesforce, and Snowflake to automate critical business processes. This integration is available today with further enhancement expected later this year.

“We are thrilled to establish this partnership with Box in their Emerging Partner Program. By combining the power of the low-code Tray Platform with Box, Box customers can now automate key business processes like connecting critical financial documents hubs to core applications and databases, automating collaboration for new customer onboarding projects, and more,” said Rich Waldron, Co-founder and CEO of “Now business users and technical teams can quickly break down data silos and eliminate manual work by placing Box at the center of their tech stack, without having to rely on hand-coded, brittle integrations.”

Unqork is a completely visual, no-code application platform that empowers enterprises to build complex, mission-critical software faster, with higher quality and lower cost than traditional approaches. With this integration, users can smart track user-submitted documents and streamline ongoing end-user engagements, thanks to Box’s robust upload and metadata APIs.

Newest Release of TrilioVault for Kubernetes Aligns to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and Supports Zero-Trust Architectures

FRAMINGHAM, MA – September 15, 2021 — / — Trilio, a leading provider of cloud-native data protection, today announced the release of TrilioVault for Kubernetes (TVK) v2.5, which offers a comprehensive approach to ransomware protection and recoverability in alignment with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and in support of Zero-Trust architectures.

Enterprises and organizations alike understand the damage caused by ransomware and have come up with various strategies to mitigate risk and facilitate recovery. Keeping backup copies of data and “point-in-time captures” are the most effective means of thwarting ransomware attacks, since there’s no need to pay to recover data if there’s another copy of the data safe and sound. However, attackers can also target the backups.

Attackers frequently try to penetrate the backup system either through the administrative console or the storage media itself in order to modify and delete point-in-time data. As a result, organizations can lose data and not even know about it until later. This greatly inhibits an enterprise’s ability to restore business operations after their data is held ransom.

Trilio is leveraging the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to align its capabilities and approach, specifically the best practices detailed in the Data Integrity projects of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at NIST. The three main components of the framework include Identify and Protect, Detect and Mitigate, and Recover. All TVK ransomware protection features today and beyond will align to this framework.

Today, Trilio announced the following capabilities with TVK v2.5 to provide comprehensive ransomware protection:

  • Backup Immutability: Ability to create immutable backups to protect against any malicious attempts to modify or delete the backups. The immutability capability works with S3-based object-locking features so that backups cannot be deleted from the target during the retention period. When the retention period is up, the backups are automatically cleared by the S3 object-locking mechanism which is controlled by TVK. Trilio enables users to set policies at the application level to give flexibility and control which is beneficial in a multi-cloud deployment. This granular level of control is in contrast to other solutions which only allow target-level retention which creates administrative overhead.
  • Encryption: Ability to encrypt TVK backups with a Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) encryption format that uses an AES-256 cipher algorithm so encrypted backups cannot be read or stolen. The TVK implementation includes at-rest and in-flight encryption. TVK leverages Key Management Systems (KMS) so Kubernetes users are in control of the encryption and the associated keys for the applications which is advantageous in multi-cloud deployments. This approach is aligned with Zero-Trust architectures and is in contrast to other solutions that only allow target-level encryption which may pose security risks.

***Download the IDC Report, ‘Trilio: Cloud-Native Data Services for Kubernetes with a Focus on Application Resiliency’*** —

“Trilio is committed to the challenge of solving the exponentially growing problem of ransomware attacks — and intends to do so in the most complete manner possible through alignment to cybersecurity best practices,” said David Safaii, CEO of Trilio. “TrilioVault for Kubernetes offers features that enable protection and recovery from ransomware, giving our customers the peace of mind that comes from knowing that Trilio’s enterprise-class technology is running continuously to keep their environments safe and protected across potential attack vectors and levels.”

Additionally, Trilio also announced the following features in TVK v2.5:

  • Multi-Namespace Backup Support: Ability to capture multiple namespaces in a single backup instead of doing multiple backups of multiple namespaces. This reduces the amount of management overhead and helps customers who want to efficiently protect clusters. In contrast to other solutions, TVK enables users to manage multiple namespaces as a consolidated object and each namespace capture as an individual object providing simplified management.
  • Backup Target Support: TVK now offers the ability to natively store data in Azure Blob and GCP Object Storage giving Microsoft or Google customers full support of their ecosystem of infrastructure products.
  • Authentication Support: TVK now supports OIDC, LDAP and cloud authentication providers. Customers with existing Identity Access Management (IAM) tools typically like to continue using their existing authentication products to avoid complicated security reviews.

“As container production deployments grow, there’s a need for data protection that includes detection and defense against ransomware, as traditional data protection methods may not scale well in containerized environments,” said Lucas Mearian, research manager, IDC. “Trilio’s product is a solution designed to protect and recover against ransomware attacks based on its point-in-time backups and restores to combat data corruption issues or other malicious activity on production data. TrilioVault for Kubernetes v2.5 includes data encryption and immutable backups via an object-locking mechanism on storage media intended to prevent backups from being overwritten or deleted.”

User Explains TVK Value
V3Main Technologies has been using TrilioVault for Kubernetes for backup, restore and migration operations across multiple Kubernetes distributions and multiple clouds, including AWS EKS, Google GKE and Azure AKS with plans to deploy Red Hat OpenShift as well.

“Overall, the concept is to take a backup from one cluster, restore it to the target, and then place it on a different cluster—no matter what platform, cloud or infrastructure you’re using,” said Venkat Maddikayala, president of V3Main Technologies. “That’s the thing that saves me a lot of effort because it takes a lot of time to configure a new cluster with on-demand workloads. There’s tremendous value in the efficiency of operations, time and cost savings for our team. We’re looking forward to taking advantage of the new capabilities to protect against Ransomware attacks as well.”

About TrilioVault for Kubernetes
TrilioVault for Kubernetes is a cloud-native, application-centric data protection platform that was designed from the ground-up to support the scale, performance and mobility requirements of Kubernetes container environments across any public or hybrid cloud environment. TrilioVault for Kubernetes offers backup and recovery of the entire application, including data, metadata and any other Kubernetes objects associated with the application so it is protected and able to be restored from any point-in-time.

About Trilio

Security customers benefit from cost-effective, flexible, and secure storage to seamlessly expand existing systems to a hybrid cloud approach to surveillance management

SANTA CLARA, CA — September 15, 2021 — / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced a new partnership with Rasilient Systems, the pioneer in forensic-grade video surveillance systems, to deliver industry-leading hybrid cloud storage solutions for video surveillance deployments at the edge. This partnership combines the strength of Rasilient’s surveillance system optimization with Wasabi’s unlimited scalability and disruptively low cost so users in industries with multiple distributed locations like healthcare networks, education systems, and retail branches, can effectively handle the rising amount of video being captured at previously deemed “unserviceable” or “difficult” remote locations.

With the ever-increasing amount of data produced by video surveillance applications, moving and archiving infrequently-accessed video to an offsite, secure, and reliable storage environment is the only way to keep up with the demand of footage being generated at the edge. Unfortunately, this is nearly impossible for remote locations due to limited bandwidth and connectivity needed to send video files without the risk of frame drop, video degradation, and data corruption.

Now with Wasabi’s affordable, fast, and reliable hot cloud storage on-demand, Rasilient customers can shorten upload windows and quickly access their video files for faster retrieval times with a highly scalable repository for their video management software (VMS) that supports high camera counts, high-definition resolutions, high frame rates, and long retention periods – all demands of modern video surveillance deployments. Wasabi is 80% less expensive to store video recordings than traditional cloud providers and there are no fees for egress or API requests. This lower cost allows customers to utilize video surveillance not only for security and safety, but for a variety of uses to cost-effectively monitor operations for business optimization and process improvement, while holding on to that footage forever so they can refer back to it whenever necessary. The two companies partner up to offer cloud, edge hardware, and secure transmission in a simple, predictable RMR pricing model as well – omitting the expensive and fluctuating costs that are traditionally associated with cloud storage solutions.

“With modern systems capturing more evidence and anomalies than ever before, there is a surging demand for increased storage capacity that is scalable, dependable, and secure,” said Sean Chang, co-founder and CEO at Rasilient Systems. “By partnering with Wasabi, we’re able to provide our customers with a hybrid cloud solution that is affordable, fast, reliable, and secure so they are properly equipped to manage the growing volume of video captured across locations.”

Rasilient’s patent-pending, VMS-agnostic NFDLink communication software enables the use of commonly available broadband wired or wireless Internet services to send and receive forensic-grade video recordings directly to and from the Wasabi cloud. Wasabi’s flexible storage capacity allows organizations to leverage NFDLink to archive infrequently accessed video to Wasabi from any VMS, while keeping frequently accessed video on-site with Rasilient edge devices. Rasilient’s PrivateLok provides zero-knowledge encryption at the edge to add cybersecurity on top of Wasabi’s safe and secure environment. Only the edge user holds the key, so even if the network was somehow compromised no one could view sensitive video data.

Wasabi is deployed in fully secure and redundant data centers that are certified for SOC-2 and ISO 27001 compliance. The service is architected in accordance with industry-best security models and design practices. Organizations can configure their individual video files or storage buckets to be immutable for a user-defined retention period (in increments of days, weeks, months or years). Designated video files or files written to that bucket cannot be deleted or altered in any way, by anyone, throughout its storage lifetime. This level of immutability helps Rasilient customers comply with state and local government regulations.

“Industries that operate in multiple locations such as healthcare, government, education, and enterprise retail may have a blend of software at different sites, oftentimes not having one standard VMS across all locations.” said David Friend, founder and CEO of Wasabi. “This scenario makes it difficult for organizations to keep up with increasing levels of video surveillance at the edge in a secure and cost-effective manner. Rasilient has created a surveillance solution that is dependable, can be used in remote areas, and can cover multiple sites. We’re excited to partner with Rasilient to provide their customers with a flexible, cost-effective and secure cloud storage solution that caters to the modern demands of video surveillance.”

About Rasilient Systems
Rasilient Systems is a leading provider of VMS-agnostic video surveillance hardware platforms since 2001 and have expanded their portfolio to include cloud storage and innovative video transmission. Their solutions are purpose-built for forensic-grade video surveillance and AI analytics. This enables Rasilient to eliminate deficiencies, like recording gaps, in video recording experienced by platforms originally purposed for IT. Offering No Frames Dropped (NFDTM), video quality, health monitoring, scalability, and efficiency to achieve the lowest OPEX/CAPEX in the market.

New Cloud Service Provides up to 5X Faster File Synchronization Across Global Locations; Rapid Ransomware Recovery Restores a Million Files in Under One Minute

BOSTON, MA – September 14, 2021 — / — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today unveiled Global File Acceleration (GFA), a new cloud service that makes multi-site file synchronization up to five times faster.

GFA dynamically performs near real-time, intelligent analysis of file usage to orchestrate and prioritize data propagation of new files across Nasuni Edge Appliances in all locations. As a result, global users sharing files gain the very fastest access to new data that they need most.

“It was already simple to manage and collaborate on our global file shares across 27 locations, and file synchronization has always been much faster than traditional methods,” said Stephen Held, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at LEO A DALY. “But with this latest release, the performance is dramatically faster.”

Rapid Ransomware Recovery
Ransomware often targets the most important asset – file data. Today’s approach for addressing ransomware targeting file servers is broken. Traditional enterprise backup and recovery solutions do not work well for files because the process of copying files from backup takes way too long. Nasuni cloud file storage has always enabled customers to recover files extremely fast following a ransomware attack, with enterprises able to restore millions of files in a matter of minutes. This is achieved with Nasuni Continuous File Versioning ® technology, which takes frequent snapshots of each and every file change and stores them in immutable object storage in the cloud. This advanced file protection technology has been further boosted by GFA.

The new layer of intelligence that GFA introduces to Nasuni’s architecture has the added benefit of setting even tighter Recovery Point Objectives (RPO) on newly-created data to further decrease the risk of data loss. This is crucial to being able to recover quickly from ransomware and other outages without disrupting productivity.

Together, they power Nasuni’s Rapid Ransomware Recovery capabilities, which make restoring files as simple as dialing back to the point just before the attack happened. Customers have the flexibility to restore entire volumes and directories, or surgically recover individual files for specific users, with recovery points as recent as 1 minute prior to an attack.

In a recent survey of Nasuni customers, those who had been hit by ransomware indicated they never had to pay a ransom to recover their files. And more than one-third of those who were hit recovered their files in less than an hour, which included stopping the attack, and then identifying and restoring the infected files.

“Nasuni was a true lifesaver when we got hit by a ransomware attack,” added Held. “Once we contained the attack, we were able to restore files quickly. Our operations hardly missed a beat.”

“No other storage or backup vendor can provide Rapid Ransomware Recovery for file servers the way Nasuni can,” said Russ Kennedy, Chief Product Officer, Nasuni. “And now Nasuni’s high-performance Global File Acceleration service sets us even further apart. Enterprises can solve their file protection, primary file storage and multi-site file sharing challenges all in one solution, and significantly reduce costs in the process. We’re helping our customers leverage Nasuni’s accelerated file sharing capabilities along with cloud scale economics and protection to modernize their file storage environments.”

About Nasuni
Nasuni provides modern cloud file storage, powered by the world’s only cloud-native global file system. Nasuni is a cloud replacement for traditional network attached storage (NAS) and file server silos, consolidating file data in easily expandable cloud object storage at a fraction of the cost. Nasuni also eliminates the need for complex legacy backup and disaster recovery infrastructure, dramatically simplifying IT administration. Companies and organizations worldwide rely on Nasuni to easily access and share files globally from the office, home or on the road. Sectors served by Nasuni include manufacturing, construction, creative services, technology, pharmaceuticals, consumer goods, oil and gas, financial services, and public sector agencies. Nasuni’s corporate headquarters is based in Boston, Massachusetts, USA delivering services in over 70 countries around the globe. For more information, visit

First-of-its-kind solution for Managed Service Providers provides added security, protection, and streamlined recovery of critical workloads in the public cloud

NORWALK, Conn., September 14, 2021 — / — Datto Holding Corp. (“Datto”) (NYSE: MSP), the leading global provider of cloud-based software and security solutions purpose-built for delivery by Managed Service Providers (MSPs), today announced the commercial availability of Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure, a comprehensive Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) solution that protects MSPs and their clients’ data in the public cloud in the event of malicious ransomware attacks, security breaches, and vendor outages.

Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure is architected to leverage the secure Datto Cloud to address a critical and unmet need for MSPs–the added protection and recovery of data in the public cloud through multi-cloud replication. This comprehensive data protection, management, and streamlined recovery is delivered at a predictable cost and without the need for MSPs to piece together individual technologies or depend solely on Microsoft’s data backup services.

An increasing number of Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) are opting to host their infrastructure and applications in the public cloud, with worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services forecasted to grow 23.1% in 2021 to total $332.3 billion, up from $270 billion in 2020, according to a forecast from Gartner, Inc. This has been a key growth area for MSPs as they support their clients and shift to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) models.

Microsoft Azure has been proven to be the leading public cloud provider over other large providers for businesses in the beginning to middle-stages of public cloud adoption, such as MSPs. Azure provides reliable cloud services for building, deploying, and managing intelligent applications. While Microsoft is responsible for the security of the physical hosts, network, and data centers, its Shared Responsibility Model states that the customer is responsible to secure and protect all applications, data, and endpoints contained within Azure. In this model, MSPs carry the responsibility to ensure they have reliable business continuity solutions in place to protect their clients’ workloads across on-premises servers and the public cloud.

Industry Leading Security and Continuity
Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure performs more frequent backups than other solutions and reduces the risk of data loss or prolonged system downtime due to ransomware and public cloud outages. Further, MSPs can now eliminate single-cloud risk by having the ability to restore data from either Microsoft Azure or the immutable, private Datto Cloud as secondary system protection. With this solution, MSPs can offer their clients the scalability and efficiency of the public cloud while feeling confident their clients’ cloud data is backed up and can be recovered within minutes – even if there is an Azure outage.

Designed for Growth
Purpose-built to help MSPs scale and grow their business, Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure delivers a predictable pricing model. One easy-to-understand, flat-fee bill accounts for all associated BCDR costs – all achieved with zero egress costs for MSPs. This solution creates a durable margin opportunity, eliminates the need to estimate public cloud service costs or handle unexpected charges, and reduces the total cost of ownership for MSPs. In addition, Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure is cloud-native to enable MSP partners to quickly scale endpoints, while providing high levels of security and reliability.

Simple User Experience
MSPs have direct access to Datto’s award-winning 24/7/365 support team and will no longer need to manage multiple vendors or integrate third-party technologies. The flexible turnkey solution requires minimal training and enables MSPs to manage both on-premises and cloud backup workloads from a single multi-tenant dashboard.

“The ongoing cyberwar against ransomware underscores the importance of closing the gap in security for MSPs utilizing the public cloud,” said Radhesh Menon, Chief Product Officer at Datto. “We architected Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure from the ground up with the key design goals of providing comprehensive protection and rapid recovery, and an extra layer of protection through multi-cloud replication to Datto’s private cloud. In addition, Datto is able to deliver predictability on margin to bring confidence to MSPs that their time and investments in hybrid cloud protection are both secure and profitable.”

Key features and benefits of Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure include:

  • Efficient deployment: Delivers fast and easy onboarding with a 3-click set-up process that enables a first backup within 15 minutes.
  • Hybrid data protection: Provides data protection for both on-premises and Azure virtual machine (VM) workloads from a single portal.
  • Multi-cloud replication: Eliminates single-cloud risk with secondary replication to the secure and reliable Datto Cloud for better Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs) and performs backups every hour for a one-hour Recovery Point Objective (RPO).
  • End-to-end protection: Ensures consistent management and protection from endpoint to server to cloud by leveraging Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure in tandem with the Datto Unified Continuity product suite.
  • Cloud Deletion Defense: Enables easy recovery of the entire dataset of backups deleted during an agent deletion or when deleting all cloud backups.
  • Virtualization to the Datto Cloud: Allows MSPs to recover workloads within seconds in the event Azure has an outage.
  • Automatic boot verification of backups: Validates that backups are running as expected with patented screenshot verification.

“The driving force behind our clients’ desire to migrate to the public cloud is two or threefold,” said Rick Topping, VP of Operations at Ceeva, Inc, an MSP in Pennsylvania and beta customer of Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure. “Companies understand their responsibility to ensure data is available to employees at all times and realize it needs to be kept as safe and secure as possible in today’s environment. Our clients sometimes find it difficult to host an on-premises system and receive the same features and functionality available with a cloud-based system. Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure provides those capabilities. As we help our clients on their journey to the cloud, this solution gives us the same data protection and business continuity that we’re used to with Datto SIRIS and provides the reliability and trust known with Datto.”

Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure is available immediately in the United States, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand through an Early Access Program that includes introductory pricing until December. Global availability with additional integrations and feature enhancements is expected by the end of 2021. For more information on the Early Access Program, join us for a webinar series beginning Wednesday, September 15. Register here —

MONETT, MO – September 14, 2021 — / — Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY) is a leading provider of technology solutions and payment processing services primarily for the financial services industry. Today, its ProfitStars® division announced that more than 300 banks and credit unions are using its Gladiator Centurion Enterprise-Level Recovery™ (CELR) solution to secure the backup and recovery of mission-critical systems in the cloud.

Financial institutions are increasingly relying on Jack Henry as a partner to manage the backup and recovery of their systems; CELR is backing up 80% more financial institution data than it was 18 months ago. The high-demand comes as CELR addresses more marketplace needs, such as providing air-gapped cold storage, an environment where data is physically and electronically disconnected from all internet networks. This contributes to compliance with The Ransomware Self-Assessment Tool (R-SAT), a tool to help financial institutions mitigate the risks of ransomware developed by the Bankers Electronic Crimes Task Force, State Bank Regulators, and the United States Secret Service.

CELR sends a backup of all mission critical systems (including third-party data) to Jack Henry’s private cloud. All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest. In the event of a ransomware attack, disaster, or power outage, a financial institution could access their information remotely or from a Centurion recovery center. The rapid data restoration helps ensure business continuity and integrity of data, providing consumers with better access to their finances and reinforcing trust in their financial institution of choice.

Annette Hord, senior vice president at Citizens Bank & Trust Company of Campbellsville, Ky., said, “It was always important to us to have Jack Henry back up our systems in the event of a natural disaster. Today, with the added vulnerabilities from ransomware attacks, knowing that our backup is in air-gapped cold storage is vital to our continuity planning. It’s an added layer of defense that can preserve our data and our reputation as a trusted financial institution.”

Ransomware is a leading threat to companies today. The widespread, increasing attacks threaten an institution’s finances and reputation. A backup and recovery strategy like CELR is critical to a multi-layered defense. If prevention and detection fail, this mitigates disaster and can have a bank or credit union up and running within hours.

Matt Riley, President of ProfitStars, said, “Jack Henry is a trusted partner to banks and credit unions, providing them with experts that are committed to continually improving compliance and security best practices. As threats evolve, the rapid adoption of CELR is an example of how a full-service partner relationship can help banks and credit unions prepare for the worst case scenarios while continuing to build a bright future for their communities.”

US Signal scales its Storage As A Service (STaaS) offering to help meet growing demand

Grand Rapids, MI – September 14, 2021 — / — SoftIron Ltd., the world leader in task-specific appliances for data center solutions, and a global leader in Ceph expertise and implementation, today announced that it has successfully engaged with Michigan-based IT solutions company, US Signal, to seamlessly upgrade and expand its Storage As A Service (STaaS) infrastructure. The initial implementation, which immediately increases US Signal’s storage capacity by over a petabyte, leverages SoftIron’s Ceph-based HyperDrive™ storage appliances and is being facilitated with a no-downtime migration across multiple distributed data center sites in four midwest states, including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The US Signal expansion is being driven by the company’s need to scale its critical infrastructure due to increasing customer demand. Having already established a Ceph software-defined storage architecture in 2012, the company took the opportunity to re-evaluate its incumbent solution against evolving requirements. These requirements included the need for cluster management across multiple, disconnected sites, the need for seamless integration with services billing, stringent cloud service SLAs, as well as limited resources (including skills, space and power). Because customers were in current operation, zero downtime during the capacity expansion was a critical requirement. SoftIron’s expertise and Ceph-based HyperDrive solution proved to be an ideal fit for the expansion, which is being accomplished with zero downtime.

“The strategic focus for this project was to ensure a truly future-proofed and seamless growth plan for US Signal, providing the best outcomes for both our business and our customers,” said Derrin Rummelt, Executive Vice President of Engineering at US Signal. “We chose open source Ceph as a foundational building block for our needs early on because of its innate power and capability. Ceph’s virtually infinite scalable nature combined with an uncompromising feature set made it a natural fit for our company, which provides world-class services in a highly competitive, mission-critical environment. SoftIron quickly demonstrated its deep understanding of complex storage environments, and how to maximize Ceph to provide the best of its wide-ranging feature set. They’ve delivered value over and above the hardware and software, providing expert guidance and support as we execute on this project together.”

The expansion, leveraging SoftIron’s expertise and HyperDrive storage appliances, further validates the enterprise-grade status of open-source Ceph, the software-defined storage platform that supports object, block, and file storage in a distributed, no single point of failure architecture. SoftIron’s HyperDrive storage appliances are engineered to maximize the performance and utility of Ceph, built using SoftIron’s “task-specific” approach, which counters the traditional commodity approach to appliances that use commercial off-the-shelf hardware (COTS). SoftIron’s approach optimizes component-level hardware design to the needs of the software at the source code level. Using this approach, SoftIron produces units purpose-built for maximum performance, eliminating commodity hardware inefficiencies, and creating greener, higher-performing, more efficient appliances.

“SoftIron continues to lower the bar for enterprises to adopt open source, and Ceph in particular, as a key part of their infrastructure strategy. Ceph provides organizations with all the robust features needed for always-on enterprise operation and delivering all the value that people expect in a world-class open source solution,” said Phil Straw, CEO of SoftIron. “SoftIron has built the ultimate productization of Ceph in our HyperDrive storage appliances, simplifying the operations and life cycle experience with Storage Manager and making Ceph accessible for today’s enterprise workloads with Storage Router. Our goal is always to meet our client organizations and their infrastructure wherever they are, and work with them to maximize every aspect of performance and efficiency that both Ceph and HyperDrive, together, have to offer.”

The SoftIron HyperDrive family storage appliances span from high-value to high performance and are available for POC and purchase today. SoftIron offers both traditional purchasing (CAPEX) and as-a-Service (OPEX) options. For more information, visit SoftIron’s HyperDrive Storage page .

Tape remains popular due to low cost and arduous process of eliminating historic backups

LONDON, UK – September 13, 2021 — / — New research by Databarracks has revealed that 15% of organisations are still using a combination of disk and tape backups, with 51% now using online or cloud backups.

The findings are from Databarracks’ 2021 Data Health Check. Running since 2008, the annual report surveys over 400 IT decision-makers in the UK on cloud, backups, cybersecurity, IT resilience and remote working.

Other key figures from the report include:

  • Cloud and online backups have continued to increase in popularity, climbing from 23% in 2008 to 51% in 2021
  • 4% still use tape as their only backup medium, unchanged since 2012
  • Combined disk and tape use has declined from a peak of 29% in 2012, to 15%

Peter Groucutt, Managing Director of Databarracks, said: “When we first started the Data Health Check in 2008, almost a fifth of organisations were still using tape as their only backup medium. By 2012, companies were moving to a combination of disk and tape or switching to online or cloud backup.

“Reports of tape’s death seem to have been greatly exaggerated. It still remains relatively popular. There are several reasons for this.

“Storage prices have reduced to make cloud backup viable for the majority of the market, but the lowest-cost method of storage is still tape. For organisations with vast data volumes – in industries such as life sciences or broadcast media – it meets that need.

“Tape is also difficult and slow to eliminate completely due to the years of historic backups you need to keep. Smaller businesses often make a clean break and switch to a new method however, larger firms and those with compliance requirements need to keep tape drives and tapes for several years. This puts some companies off moving due to the cost and manpower required to manage two backup methods while older retentions expire.

“The industry has been lamenting the decline of tapes for decades but even now, it seems they are here to stay.”

Groucutt says there are still major benefits to moving to faster and more efficient cloud backups.

He concluded: “Backup is one of the repetitive jobs that can really take time away from the IT team. Improving the speed of backups is not one of the most exciting IT projects, but it has a huge impact on the efficiency of IT operations. The lockdowns over the last 18 months have also driven more interest in completely automated backup solutions that don’t require manual interaction like with tape libraries.”

New Barracuda Data Inspector automatically scans OneDrive and SharePoint to identify sensitive information and malicious files

Campbell, Calif., Barracuda Secured.21 Customer Conference 2021 – Sept. 14, 2021 — / —


  • New Barracuda Data Inspector helps customers find sensitive data in OneDrive and SharePoint and if it’s been shared internally or externally.
  • Data Inspector provides data classification capabilities and identifies malware, viruses, ransomware, and more stored in OneDrive and SharePoint.
  • Using Data Inspector, customers can gain insights to help support regulatory compliance requirements.

Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-enabled security solutions, today announced Barracuda Data Inspector to help customers automatically scan OneDrive for Business and SharePoint data for sensitive information and malicious files. Powerful data classification capabilities help customers identify types of data such as Personal Identifiable Information (PII), user credentials, credit card information, and more. Customers using Barracuda Data Inspector can identify whether data has been shared internally or externally, and where it’s stored to help them make decisions on how to act on it.

A recent study — commissioned by Barracuda captured the opinions and perspectives of global IT decision makers about Office 365, data security, backup and recovery, SaaS solutions, and a variety of related topics. The research found that data protection is both a security and a privacy concern:

  • More than 7 in 10 respondents were concerned about compliance with data privacy requirements.

The same study found that protecting data against attack and loss — both from outside actors and inside sources — is also a key concern:

  • 72% of respondents were concerned that their Office 365 data could be the target of ransomware.
  • 52% said their organization has experienced a ransomware attack.

OneDrive and SharePoint deployments can be storing sensitive data, such as Social Security numbers, credit card information, network credentials, and more — which can make these types of data more vulnerable to a breach. Additionally, these deployments can be hosts to dormant malware, viruses, and ransomware that can go undetected by native security and then wait for one wrong click to activate them.

With Barracuda Data Inspector, customers can easily scan OneDrive and SharePoint to identify sensitive data and then decide what needs to be done with that data in terms of compliance requirements and other needs. Highlights include:

  • Create data classifiers; identify specific information types, such as employee or student IDs, project codenames, and other proprietary information
  • Find out if data has been shared internally or externally
  • Identify malware, viruses, and ransomware stored and get rid of it at the source
  • Receive automated notifications and redacted previews of classified data
  • Alert users when they attempt to store data that might be considered sensitive

“Barracuda Data Inspector is next-generation data security that makes it easy to identify and secure an organization’s most critical information,” said Tim Jefferson, SVP, Engineering for Data, Network, and Application Security at Barracuda. 

“We’re very excited about Barracuda Data Inspector. Customers want to be able to identify sensitive information like credit card data that is improperly stored creating greater risk of data leakage,” said Chris Riley, Director at System Source. “With Barracuda Data Inspector, we’ll provide a powerful tool for our customers to help secure their businesses.”

All managed via a single, central console thanks to 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup

PITTSBURGH, PA – September 10, 2021 — / — Hornetsecurity has released a new solution to provide Microsoft 365 business users with the security and data loss prevention they require. Microsoft 365’s default protection is not enough: Its built-in email filters let threats through, making it necessary to acquire additional security for data and email communications.

To address this, Hornetsecurity has launched an industry-first service: 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup, which covers all aspects of email and data security for Microsoft 365.

The holistic cloud security bundle offers a wide array of high-performance, award-winning email security and management features including:

  • Multi-level filter systems
  • AI-based analysis mechanisms for protection against spam, malware, and advanced threats
  • Email encryption and archiving
  • Email continuity, which effectively maintains email traffic during system failures
  • Easy-to-create, legally compliant signatures and disclaimers.

To top it all off, 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup enables automatic backup and recovery of an organization’s Microsoft 365 mailboxes, Teams, SharePoint and OneDrive, as well as backing up the data in users’ Windows-based endpoints such as laptops or Windows workstations.

Robust backup and recovery functionality is essential for holistic Microsoft 365 security as data loss occurs not only due to ransomware and malware, but also due to user error – for example, KPMG accidentally but irretrievably deleted the Teams chats of 145,000 employees last year. It is often assumed that Microsoft creates extensive backups of all data, but this is not the case.

Like all Hornetsecurity services, 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup takes just minutes to set up and is extremely easy to manage, thanks to the solution’s central Control Panel.

“With 365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup, we have created a comprehensive cloud security bundle that includes everything needed to protect email and data in Microsoft 365. The solution not only provides our customers with holistic security, but also greatly reduces the workload for IT administrators, as all features can be controlled and managed centrally from an intuitive interface. We want to save our customers from having to find their way through a jungle full of security tools and show how simple and reliable email and data security can be,” said Daniel Hofmann, CEO of Hornetsecurity.

365 Total Protection Enterprise Backup is available at:

Commvault extends its market leading ransomware solutions with new services designed to plan for, protect, and recover from ransomware attacks

TINTON FALLS, N.J., Sept. 8, 2021 — / — Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT), a recognized global enterprise leader in Intelligent Data Services across on-premises, cloud and SaaS environments, today announced new ransomware services designed to help businesses prepare for, protect against, and respond to today’s growing cyber threats.

Ransomware attacks continue to rise, and they are expensive—on average, it costs 10 times the cost of the ransom payment to restore the data1. 70% of ransomware attacks include a threat to leak exfiltrated data, and firms who have been attacked experience about 21 days of downtime afterwards2. The hard costs of ransomware are astronomical; most companies are not prepared to respond to an attack, and even less are planning ahead of time.

Commvault is a trusted partner to its global customers in data protection and recovery, for all types of risk vectors. Ransomware is the latest persistent threat facing our customers and the new ransomware protection and recovery services are based on Commvault’s expertise and knowledge of data management design, planning, and recovery.

The new offering, Commvault Ransomware Protection and Response Services, provides the resources and expertise needed to harden customers’ Commvault solutions from an attack, review the state of their data protection solution over time, and help them recover critical data when an attack does occur.

The Ransomware Protection Design and Plan service assists customers in validating their preparedness for ongoing threats and attacks. The offering will help organizations understand potential threats and risks impacting their ability to be ready. It offers tangible outcomes such as a readiness scorecard, key findings, and recommendations and a prioritized action plan.

The Commvault Ransomware Response Service provides the expertise and resources to help recover from an attack. As part of the service, Commvault provides a Ransomware Recovery Incident Manager backed by the Commvault Recovery Operations team. The service works with customers to identify and recover critical data and expedite a return to normal business operations.

These services complement Commvault Ransomware Protect and Recover solutions that deliver the critical capabilities for ransomware data protection. Utilizing this new service offering along with Commvault software and cloud offerings allows an enterprise to detect, protect and recover from ransomware attacks and other data breaches as a core component of the Commvault Intelligent Data Services. Commvault Data Management and Protection products and Compliance and Governance solutions work hand in hand with this data security solution.

“Ransomware is growing exponentially as both a worldwide problem and an addressable threat,” said Ram Menashe, Vice President of Global Services at Commvault. “While we cannot guarantee our customers won’t be the target of an attack, we believe that by offering strategic protection plans, we can support customers at any stage of a ransomware attack—and do our best to help prevent it altogether with Commvault Protection Review. These services represent our commitment to keeping our customers’ data safe and recoverable while continuing to provide innovative, industry-leading products.”

The award-winning product (formerly Acronis True Image) provides individuals with comprehensive protection against all threats — from disk failures to cyberattacks

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – September 8, 2021 — / — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today released the newly-rebranded Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image). This new name for the company’s flagship personal solution reflects its evolution from data and system backup software to a solution that delivers complete cyber protection — next-generation anti-malware, best-in-breed backup, and easy management, all-in-one integrated tool.

Cyber protection
The need for both effective data protection and cybersecurity has become dominant in daily life. Businesses rely on the continuous availability and integrity of their data, while individuals around the world send and receive large volumes of sensitive information over remote connections. Cybercriminals, in response, have stepped up the scale and complexity of their attacks — and with advances in the automation of these threats, no one is “too small to target.”

Recognizing the evolving challenges of data protection, Acronis has been advancing its solutions since 2017 to meet the latest challenges. When ransomware threats began targeting file backups directly, the company became the first to integrate anti-ransomware defenses into a personal backup solution. In 2021, Acronis continued to expand its cybersecurity focus, adding capabilities that include threat-agnostic anti-malware, cryptojacking protection, and web filtering. The solution evolved from a backup one to a complete personal cyber protection solution, safeguarding not only backups but devices as well.

Acronis’ success with these efforts has not gone unnoticed, earning Editor’s Choice awards from both PCWorld and PCMag. PCWorld called it “an all-encompassing tragedy-prevention solution.” When evaluated by independent security research lab AV-TEST, the integration of data backup and advanced cybersecurity successfully detected and blocked 100% of cyberattacks.

Protection for everybody
Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office (formerly Acronis True Image) incorporates a number of capabilities to counter modern cyberthreats and ensure complete data protection. The unique integration of cybersecurity and backup into a single solution not only makes protection simpler and more affordable, but also delivers advanced capabilities that standalone solutions cannot — such as the automatic restoration of any data damaged during a ransomware attack.

Its advanced anti-malware is proven to detect and stop the latest cyberthreats in real-time, including zero-day attacks that have never been seen before. Protection is extended across popular software, including videoconferencing applications like Zoom and Microsoft Teams, preventing attackers from accessing data in-transit.

“The past two years have changed the industry landscape for good, no user is too small to be targeted anymore,” said Candid Wuest, Acronis VP of Cyber Protection Research. “The unique quality of our corporate solutions is the integrated cyber protection – combining cybersecurity and backup is the only way to keep your critical data truly protected. Now we offer Acronis Cyber Protect Home Office – to protect every individual and home office, and keep the world going despite the challenges of the remote work and distributed IT infrastructure.”

BOULDER, Colo. Sept. 8, 2021 — / — Spectra Logic, a leader in data management and data storage solutions, today announced the availability of the ninth generation of LTO technology for its family of tape library solutions, including the Spectra TFinity ExaScale, T950, T950v, T680, T380 T200, T120, T50e and Spectra Stack. These tape libraries support LTFS, WORM, hardware encryption, and Spectra’s exclusive Media Lifecycle Management. Certified with all major ISV packages, Spectra’s tape libraries seamlessly integrate with Spectra’s BlackPearl® Object Storage Platform, enabling users to create a multi-storage ecosystem for maximum storage, access and preservation of data to disk, tape and cloud. To learn more about LTO-9, register for Spectra Logic’s upcoming webinar, “Unleashing the Power of LTO-9,” on Sept. 23, 2021, at 9 a.m. MST.

“The industry is seeing a resurgence of tape storage deployments by organizations with growing data repositories, even if they already have disk and cloud, because tape provides the greatest storage capacity at the lowest cost per terabyte with exceptional reliability,” said Christophe Bertrand, senior industry analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “Tape technology, such as LTO-9, also offers unmatched air gap protection against ransomware, enabling organizations to protect their data offline and beyond the reach of malevolent threat actors.”

The new ninth generation of LTO (Linear Tape-Open) tape technology is designed for even greater data storage density and speed, providing up to 18TB of native capacity per cartridge (up to 45TB with compression) surpassing the capacity of LTO-8 by 50 percent. Full-height LTO-9 drives deliver uncompressed transfer speeds of up to 400 MB/second, almost two times faster than current hard disk drives. In addition, LTO-9 drives are backward compatible with LTO-8 tape media, allowing users to read/write LTO-8 media.

“Today’s news of LTO-9 tape availability confirms the extensibility of this popular open format that was developed more than 20 years ago,” said Nathan Thompson, CEO and Founder of Spectra Logic. “With each generation, new features have been introduced, such as WORM, LTFS and hardware encryption. We recently made software updates for our installed base of thousands of LTO libraries to enable customers to add or upgrade to LTO-9. And since we are the first to offer a tape library – the TFinity — that can store an astounding exabyte of native data with LTO-9 drives and media, we couldn’t be more excited about the long-term prospects of LTO tape technology for our customers.”

The World’s Largest Data Storage System with LTO-9
Designed to meet demanding backup, archive and data protection requirements, the Spectra TFinity Tape Library addresses exponential data growth in such industries as high performance computing, scientific research, media and entertainment, cloud storage, education, healthcare, finance and traditional IT. The Spectra TFinity provides organizations with the ultimate in capacity, performance, reliability and scalability at a much lower price point than other storage options.

Cloudian Solution Provides Highly Scalable, Secure and Cost-effective On-premises Storage that Integrates Seamlessly with Public Cloud

TOKYO, Sept. 7, 2021 — / — Cloudian® today announced that Kanazawa University has deployed Cloudian’s HyperStore® object storage software as part of a major initiative to strengthen the University’s research infrastructure and support system, including big data management and analysis. The Cloudian solution enables Kanazawa to store and protect its sensitive research data on-premises and cost effectively and easily scale as this data grows.

With origins dating back over 150 years, today Kanazawa University’s basic philosophy is to be an “education-oriented research university open to the region and the world.” To enhance its research infrastructure, the University decided to use the GakuNin RDM platform, a research data management service provided by the National Institute of Informatics that enables secure data management and sharing among laboratories and collaborators across organizations.

Currently, GakuNin RDM provides 100 GB of capacity per researcher as “standard storage” free of charge. However, because this is insufficient capacity for advanced research, Kanazawa University recognized that it would need a much more scalable storage foundation for managing and protecting its data, particularly sensitive data that could not be stored in a public cloud.

After looking at different on-premises storage options, the University decided to deploy Cloudian’s HyperStore object storage software.

“Cloudian has a proven track record in Japan and overseas,” said Takuya Matsuhira, a senior technical staff member of the Information Systems Division, Engineering and Technology Department, at Kanazawa University. “Based on this and our own evaluation of HyperStore, we determined that it was the best solution for meeting our on-premises data management and protection needs.”

GakuNin RDM uses the S3 API to connect to external storage, so HyperStore’s fully native S3 compatibility made the integration very easy. In addition, because we have a hybrid cloud model with public cloud storage for less sensitive data, Cloudian’s S3 compatibility gives us the flexibility to move data to and from our public cloud storage in the future.”

Currently, the University allocates storage space to each user, and HyperStore’s multi-tenancy and user-friendly interface make it easy to operate. In addition, HyperStore can issue IAM and S3 API access key IDs and secret keys to each user, which provides a high level of data security.

Although Kanazawa University’s infrastructure modernization project is just getting started, the University is already very pleased with what it’s seeing.

“HyperStore is delivering the scalability and cost efficiency we need to support our research objectives,” said Yoshihiro Takata, Associate Professor, Academic System Division, Emerging Media Initiative. “Most importantly, it’s enabled us to create an environment where highly sensitive research data can be securely managed on-premises and easily connected to GakuNin RDM.”

Moving forward, Mr. Takata hopes to share this experience and know-how with other universities to expand their research data management efforts.

“In the future, we believe that educational data transformation initiatives will require a new teaching materials data management (TDM) infrastructure, and we are looking forward to using HyperStore as a storage platform to safely store both sensitive research data and next-generation teaching materials data within the university,” he said. “We are also excited about the further evolution of HyperStore, including technologies that will help us better utilize our research data and gain greater analytical insights from it.”

About Cloudian
Cloudian is the most widely deployed independent provider of object storage. With a native S3 API, it brings the scalability and flexibility of public cloud storage into the data center while providing ransomware protection and reducing TCO by up to 70% compared to traditional SAN/NAS and public cloud. The geo-distributed architecture enables users to manage and protect object and file data across sites—on-premises and in the cloud—from a single platform. Available as software or appliances, Cloudian supports conventional and containerized applications. More at
