Asigra Tiger’s Den Channel Program to Help Better Secure Customer Data while Accelerating Profits

TORONTO, ON – May 25, 2022 — / / — Asigra Inc., a leader in cyber-secure backup and recovery, today announced the Tiger’s Den Channel Program with significant updates to tiered discounting, new product marketing materials, enhanced partner services and support as well as a new engagement package for value added distributors (VADs) designed to increase global product availability.

As business today come under increasing pressure to secure corporate data, both in primary and secondary storage environments, solution providers globally are moving quickly to meet the needs of these organizations. As a leader in secure data protection, Asigra is working with channel partners across all major continents to ensure access to the industry’s most secure backup and recovery platform available. To accelerate these efforts, the Tiger’s Den Channel Program includes new incentives, educational content and opportunities for wider range of IT product and service providers.

New for 2022 are several enhancements, including:

Expanded VAR and MSP support – This includes the program opening to a broader range of partners with several Asigra platform delivery options, either as a complete service, partial service, highly distributed service or internally deployed by the customer and managed by the solution provider.
Sales and Customer Engagement – Asigra’s salespeople, pre-sales engineers and our distribution partners will be available to assist with demonstrations, pre-sales consulting, assistance with backup designs, sales calls, and other sales activities. The company will respond to sales assistance requests within one business day or less. We know that when business is on the line, fast assistance is needed and we’re here to help.
Revamped Partner Portal – An updated suite of sales and marketing collaterals are now available in the Asigra partner portal, which have been changed to reflect the evolution in backup and recovery today – especially in the area of cybersecurity and ransomware 2.0.
Tiered Discounting Program – Asigra is now going beyond its traditional discounting program and offering a number of new options available to partners to assist in securing business opportunities, including specialized tiers for both MSPs and VARs.
Value Added Distributor Program – In order to increase the company’s footprint both nationally and globally, Asigra’s VAD program is adding an additional partner tier to its ecosystem to reach a wider array of partners. Local VADs will provide an added layer of support as well as regional expertise.
Partner Leads – The company is driving market-leading awareness and lead-gen campaigns to educate the market about outdated backup security practices that leave their customers vulnerable. As these activities drive leads to the company, they are provided to partners in support of their businesses.
100% Channel Focused – Unlike other backup software providers, Asigra is 100% channel-driven. The company offers industry-leading pricing, and will never compete for customers. Asigra sales experts work with partners as a team, helping with marketing support to drive more leads and sales support to close more business.

“With guidance from Data2Vault and Asigra, our customer adopted a more security-focused data protection posture to protect against emerging threats such as evolved Ransomware targeting cloud data,” said Mark Saville, Director, Data2Vault. “As we focus on delivering best-in-class IT infrastructure solutions, Asigra has been instrumental in delivering highly secure and compliant data protection enablement and ongoing support to ensure customer data is protected. Based on the opportunities we are opening up and clients we are onboarding, the Attack Loop defense for MS365 is a real winner. It doesn’t seem that the approach to detecting malware from the competition is as effective.”

The Tigris Data Protection platform prevents ransomware 2.0 and other advanced forms of malicious malware from accessing and affecting backup data. The software provides advanced detection and mitigation for safe, secure, and reliable backup and data recovery. The ultra-secure platform includes the industry’s first zero-day Attack-Loop preventative technology using bi-directional malware detection, zero-day exploit protection, variable repository naming, and Deep MFA (multi-factor authentication) for a full defensive suite against ransomware variants and other cyber-attacks on backup data.

“Backup data security is essential for proper recovery and compliance as threats continue to escalate globally,” said Chris Gilkes, VP, Worldwide Sales for Asigra “Our expanded channel program will be instrumental in driving partner success in this area, reducing the potential for ransomware attacks and delivering greater opportunities and revenue for partners.”

LOS ANGELES, CA – May 25, 2022 — / / — IDrive Backup has added a new edge location for IDrive® e2 in Dublin, Ireland, allowing EU users to take advantage of the most affordable and possibly the fastest S3 compatible cloud object storage solution.

Since IDrive launched IDrive® e2 in April, 2022, there have been plenty of requests internationally for the service, so IDrive expanded the solution to Ireland to give EU users access to the same exceptional performance that users in the US receive.

This enables EU users to point their data to the edge center closest to them for a faster network and ease of access, and retrieve their data based on their convenience using associated access and a secret key. Data can be accessed via the IDrive® e2 web console or a third-party tool such as MSP360, Veeam, Cyberduck, Cloudflare, Fastly, iconik, Arq, QNAP, Synology, Arcserve, Duplicati, WinSCP, and S3 Browser.

Dublin was an ideal choice due to low-cost cooling options and availability, as well as their renewable energy supply. According to a recent report from SEAI, renewable energy accounts for over 40% of Ireland’s energy mix, with that figure predicted to rise to 70% by 2030, making Ireland a very desirable location for expansion.

IDrive® e2 is a scalable and durable cloud-object storage platform that stores petabytes of data on pay-per-use pricing. It is suitable for hosting applications, media workflow, gaming assets, e-commerce resources, and other large volumes of data.

IT teams at Claro, Edmonton Police and others turn to GreenLake and Scality for on-prem S3 object storage

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 24, 2022 — / / — Scality today announced the availability of its Scality S3 Object Storage on the HPE GreenLake Cloud Services platform to accelerate on-prem cloud services for customers who want to retain their data sovereignty, scale easily and manage costs. The two companies are committed to solving the greatest data challenges across the globe and together are delivering innovation that helps more businesses achieve results that drive the success of their businesses.

Click to Tweet: @Scality and @HPE_GreenLake accelerate on-prem #cloud services to keep data sovereign for orgs like @edmontonpolice and @claroempresas_cl #datastorage

For organizations that house sensitive data, like the Edmonton Police Service and Claro, moving to the public cloud isn’t always the best option. Scality S3 Object Storage with HPE GreenLake provides these organizations with an alternative: on-premises, cloud-like data services that meet data sovereignty goals and requirements and keep data secure. This integration keeps up with increasing capacity requirements despite rapid growth and supply chain concerns. It’s the cloud that comes to you — wherever your apps and data live.

Together, HPE and Scality have deployed over an exabyte of storage, with hundreds of joint customers in more than 40 countries. Benefits for organizations that implement Scality S3 Object Storage with HPE GreenLake include:

  • Freedom from being beholden to Amazon or the public cloud – and, therefore, no expensive data access or egress fees
  • Scalable, highly available, highly durable (14:9s) and cost-effective storage for all of their applications with data immutability for ransomware protection
  • S3-compliant object storage that’s managed for them by HPE and keeps data secure and sovereign

Maurice Martin, vice president, HPE GreenLake Partner Ecosystem, said: “Customers need storage solutions that can be customized to their specific need, especially when moving data to public clouds is not an option. What’s more, they need that solution to scale without excessive fees. HPE GreenLake and Scality have partnered to provide a future-proof solution for the modern business.”

Gary Wong, infrastructure manager, Edmonton Police, said: “Scality gives us the flexibility to scale out our platform and store data, such as digital evidence files and camera footage, in the way that meets our needs. We sought a solution that was cost-effective and reliable for the foreseeable future, which is exactly what Scality through HPE GreenLake provides. Scality and HPE enable us to enjoy a cloud-like experience while keeping our data secure on premises.”

Roberto Zambrano, product and presales manager, Claro, said: “We’ve realized a 30% reduction in storage infrastructure costs by modernizing with Scality and the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform. The biggest benefit has been passed on to our healthcare clients, who now access critical patient data, like CT scans, three to five times faster than before. Regulations require our largest healthcare clients to keep patient information local and sovereign. With HPE GreenLake and Scality, we can meet these regulations while keeping data safe from threats such as major outages in a local world-class data center.”

Wally MacDermid, vice president of strategic alliances, Scality, said: “Our customers are seeing up to 25% data capacity growth. Between this growth and the supply chain shortages, keeping up with capacity requirements is a huge challenge – and then you factor in added concerns around security and data sovereignty. Together with HPE GreenLake, we bring a cloud-like experience on-prem to help our customers meet capacity demands while keeping data secure and sovereign. They get the best of both worlds by circumventing the challenges of pushing all their data to the public cloud – coupled with the convenience of a pay-as-you-go capacity consumption model.”

This makes the system difficult for both traditional and ransomware attackers to compromise. Storj, powering Gabb Cloud, helps keep kids’ data, photos, and contacts private.

“Protecting kids with safe technology in a digital world is critical. Storj and Gabb Wireless share a common value and mission – to give customers better control of their data, while keeping it private and secure,” said Ben Golub, CEO of Storj. “With Gabb Cloud, powered by Storj, Gabb parents can be assured that their kids’ data is seamlessly and automatically safe, encrypted, backed up and secure.”

Launches Integrated File and Object SaaS Offering powered by Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage

New York, NY – May 24, 2022 — / / — CTERA, the leader in edge-to-cloud file services, today announced a new partnership with Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, to provide integrated file and object data service for mid-sized companies. The new offering combines CTERA’s global file system technology with Wasabi’s scalable and cost-effective object storage, in simple service bundles designed for rapid delivery and support by channel partners.

Companies of all sizes struggle to close IT gaps as they shift from traditional workplace models to new post-pandemic hybrid environments. Cloud object storage introduces unparalleled levels of scale and cost-efficiency relative to traditional NAS systems but requires a layer of file services to serve remote sites in a secure and performant manner.

The CTERA file services platform connects the cloud with on-premises locations and roaming users over a single namespace using edge filers and endpoint agents that provide local caching and end-to-end encryption. In addition, the solution provides centralized management from a multi-tenant portal that allows IT admins and service companies to automate deployments and remotely manage their data with minimal operational overhead.

The new offering packages CTERA file services with Wasabi’s cloud object service in simple, consumption-based bundles that are easy to procure and expand on-demand, with no hidden costs or egress fees, and includes the following main capabilities:

  • Integrated file and object cloud service – CTERA’s Global File System creates a single global namespace for all files and delivers infinite cloud storage leveraging a cost-effective object storage repository powered by Wasabi.
  • Edge Filers for fast local SMB/NFS access – CTERA Edge Filers use smart caching to accelerate file access speeds for remote users, ensure availability even when disconnected from the cloud, and enable users to maintain familiar workflows.
  • Ransomware protection and disaster recovery – CTERA’s Global File System helps eliminate the risk of data loss by allowing organizations to recover “locked” data within minutes, avoiding downtime, and remaining assured that sensitive information is never exposed to hackers. By combining enterprise-grade antivirus and threat protection and a zero-trust architecture, CTERA delivers the industry’s most effective ransomware mitigation and business continuity solution.
  • Automated data discovery and migration from legacy NAS – CTERA Migrate is a built-in data migration engine that provides data discovery and automated import of file shares from legacy NAS systems, streamlining enterprise cloud transformation initiatives that otherwise might be hindered by the complexity and cost overhead of data migration from legacy systems.

“One of the greatest challenges facing a design agency is predicting and scaling our storage infrastructure. Images and video files take up lots of space – a single project may require hundreds of them,” said James Payne, Technology Director, Glenn Davis Group. “CTERA’s global file system paired with Wasabi’s object storage delivers on-prem performance to handle the demands of a big project while protecting historical files and stale data in a vast, encrypted cloud container. Add to that mix an elegant web interface for anywhere access to all our information, including endpoint backups, and we have the perfect solution to address the evolving needs of our organization.”

“CTERA has been delivering cloud file services for large enterprises for many years,” said Oded Nagel, Chief Strategy Officer of CTERA. “We are excited to partner with Wasabi to deliver our technology to the mid-market, enabling CTERA and Wasabi resellers to leverage our extensive multi-tenant portal capabilities to deliver much-needed managed data services to their customers.”

“Our partnership with CTERA is a great example of how a leading application vendor can leverage Wasabi to create a better-together offer,” said Mark Vella, Vice President, Global Business Development, Wasabi Technologies. “The tightly integrated solution and provisioning experience delivers a user-friendly Cloud File Management and Storage solution for both partners and customers without the complexity or high costs. We are thrilled to be working with CTERA and growing our global presence together.”

Panzura ensures “resilient data management versus a chaotic world”

SUFFOLK, VA and SAN JOSE, Calif — May 24, 2022 — / / — Intellyx, the first and only analyst firm dedicated to digital transformation, announced that Panzura LLC, the leader in hybrid multi-cloud data management, won the 2022 Digital Innovator Award.

As an industry analyst firm that focuses on enterprise digital transformation and the leading edge vendors that are driving it, Intellyx interacts with numerous innovators in the enterprise IT marketplace.

To honor these trailblazing firms, Intellyx’s 2022 Intellyx Digital Innovator Awards puts a spotlight on vendors worth watching. In a recent report, Intellyx characterized Panzura’s value as “resilient data management versus a chaotic world.”

“The enterprise potential for data loss and performance problems when everything connects to everything has only increased,” said Jason English, principal analyst at Intellyx. “This is now leading secure data management back to the forefront of IT concerns – toward serving the customer needs of data observability, compliance, and a responsive posture to ransomware.”

English continues in the report, “The Panzura CloudFS platform takes a global manifest of disparate unstructured data stores and their provenance, recording snapshots at desired time intervals and allowing data owners to see analytics and set policies down to the individual file level. Data managers can then take action with flexible hybrid cloud storage provisioning, failover data services, and automated recovery capabilities in the case of any interruptions or breaches.”

In a modern hybrid cloud environment, the attack surface of sensitive customer data is growing beyond the security team’s ability to protect it. Jill Stelfox, Panzura refounder and CEO, said, “Instead of continuing to fund a data swamp, you can stop ransomware cold with an immutable record of all business-critical data with Panzura CloudFS.”

According to Panzura, in the last 24 months, the company experienced an exceptional rise in annual recurring revenue of over 200%, which helped Panzura achieve 4x the speed of growth over its competitors. The company posted a customer retention rate of 97% during the same period and achieved a best-in-class NPS Score of 87.

West Palm Beach, FL – May 24, 2021 — / — N2WS (N2W Software, Inc) is proud to announce that it was awarded an AWS Government Software Competency designation. Any of the AWS competencies are very difficult to achieve, none more so then the AWS Government Software Competency.

In order to be awarded this designation, the N2WS product (N2WS Backup & Recovery for AWS) underwent a high level of scrutiny and an audit. This audit included validating a unique value proposition for government organizations, including state and local government and federal government agencies. The audit continued with a deep dive into the N2WS technology offering and internal processes to ensure that the product held up to the highest of standards and best practices on AWS.

The audit included the submission and review of four unique and validated case studies. These case studies need to show that the N2WS offering addressed a unique customer problem and included detailed metrics for success.

The team at N2WS was able to provide substantiated evidence that government organizations have unique needs in the backup and disaster recovery domain, including:

  • high availability for the workloads running on AWS
  • complete sovereignty and control of the data stored on AWS
  • and long-term retention to meet strict regulatory requirements

Also critical is the ability to easily manage all data stored on AWS and to produce detailed reports and alerts validating those mandates are met, and Good Practice requirements are achieved.

By leveraging the N2WS solutions, only sold in AWS Marketplace and available in all AWS regions (including AWS GovCloud), government organizations can meet all the requirements needed to protect their environments from downtime, data loss, or failures of any kind. N2WS is installed in the domain of the customer and the solution is entirely managed by the customer, this ensures that the strict data sovereignty and data domain requirements are achieved.

N2WS is proud of this achievement. We will continue to help customers of all kinds adopt cloud-native technologies to offer higher levels of performance for their critical workloads.

There are few software companies that have achieved this award and very few in the data protection space. We wear this new badge proudly!

About N2WS
N2WS was founded in 2012 with the mission of providing enterprise-class data protection for production environments deployed in the public cloud. N2WS Backup & Recovery was designed and built from the ground up to meet all your backup and DR requirements and is now the leading enterprise-class backup, recovery, and disaster recovery solution for Amazon AWS. Enterprises can recover complete servers/instances, specific volumes, or individual files in seconds to other AWS regions or even another AWS account, and be back up to production in only seconds. And, with the release of N2WS version 4.0, they added the ability to protect Azure workloads as well —all from a single console.

“For Every 10PB of data storage shipped by SoftIron, an estimated 6,656 tonnes of CO2e is saved by reduced energy consumption alone”

LONDON, UK – May 24, 2022 — / / — SoftIron, the leader in purpose-built and performance-optimised data centre solutions, today announced that an assessment conducted by Earth Capital Ltd., has affirmed SoftIron’s status as a global leader in energy-efficient data infrastructure solutions for core-to-edge data centres. As a member of the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, which aims to galvanise the asset management industry to commit to a goal of net zero emissions, Earth Capital produces assessments on all of the companies in which it invests, including SoftIron.

Now available, the assessment highlights SoftIron’s leadership in sustainable IT solutions through its design and manufacturing initiatives. The report demonstrates how SoftIron is helping its customers reduce their carbon footprints through the use of its highly integrated HyperDrive storage platform that dramatically reduces space and energy footprint, highlighting that the energy usage of the platform “is up to five times smaller than that of equivalent appliances on the market.”

Highlighting the impressive carbon reduction results that SoftIron’s HyperDrive storage platform enables its customers to achieve, the assessment states, “how can SoftIron help reduce their customers’ carbon footprint? In comparison to similar data storage and processing appliances available on the market, SoftIron’s product has a greatly reduced carbon footprint mainly on account of comparably low energy usage during operation.” The report states that for every 10 PB of data storage shipped by SoftIron, an estimated 6,656 tonnes of CO2e is saved by reduced energy consumption alone. This is the equivalent of taking nearly 1,500 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles off the road for a year.

The report also calls attention to the reductions in heat that SoftIron’s appliances are able to achieve through their reduced energy consumption, noting that “SoftIron appliances produce up to 80% less heat than the standard, thereby radically reducing emissions pertaining to cooling of data centres.”

While reduced emissions related to the cooling of data centres is one carbon reducing benefit, the extension of the lifespan of SoftIron’s solutions is another critical factor that the report highlights. “Typical datacenter servers have a lifespan of 3-5 years. As SoftIron’s products use less power and therefore generate less heat during operation, they place less stress on the server (and hard drives) than that of an industry standard appliance, reducing the likelihood of system failure.” The report notes that because SoftIron solutions only contain the components necessary for its specified function, there is less likelihood of a system fault, thus extending the lifespan of the appliance. The report deduces that “it is reasonable to assume that SoftIron’s products have a minimum lifespan of 5 years.”

The report highlights that the industry is actually moving in the wrong direction where energy consumption is concerned, lauding SoftIron’s approach to creating optimised solutions that challenge industry norms. “Many of the industry-standard products adopt a generic model, capable of numerous functions while SoftIron appliances are fully integrated and task-specific such that each appliance only contains the components and processing power necessary for its specified function. Many market-leading data centre suppliers acquire commoditised, off-the-shelf hardware which use the latest iteration of central processing units (CPUs). Research indicates that each iteration of CPU requires more power than its predecessor. Therefore, the industry standard data centre appliances are in fact becoming less energy-efficient, thereby creating more financial and environmental costs for data centres. Meanwhile, SoftIron’s task-specific and fully integrated design means that every aspect (from the hardware to the software) is optimised to make the most energy-efficient product possible. This enables SoftIron to deliver industry-leading performance while using less power-hungry CPUs.”

In addition to highlighting the industry-leading performance metrics that SoftIron is achieving, the Earth Capital report also highlighted how SoftIron is tackling the reduction of carbon footprints through its own efforts, including standardising the product design, reusing/recycling at manufacturing facilities, reducing software configuration time, installation of a Hot Aisle Containment (HAC) system in its manufacturing facilities, reducing plastic packaging, and its clean supply chain pledge.

The report also highlighted SoftIron’s unique “Edge Manufacturing” approach, which uses the most modern technologies available, including digital twin technology, to bring new efficiencies to IT manufacturing. “SoftIron is moving towards a model of operation (known as “Edge Manufacturing”) which involves locating manufacturing sites closer to the customer, thereby enabling greater use of local supply chains and reducing emissions pertaining to transportation,” the report explained.

“When we founded SoftIron in 2012, we did it recognising that the industry’s path for manufacturing IT solutions was fundamentally broken for the requirements of the future, both in the core data centre and especially at the edge,” said Phil Straw, CEO and Co-founder of SoftIron. “In essence, SoftIron has completely reinvented and modernised how data infrastructure is designed, manufactured and delivered in virtually every regard. The results are solutions that are superior in virtually every way possible, from power draw and heat emissions, to density, and to eliminating vendor lock-in through our use of open source – the list goes on. We’ve designed a platform for IT solutions that is centred around the modern needs of our customers, enabling them to flexibly scale their IT solution wherever it is needed without the constraints and limitations of traditional commodity hardware-based solutions.”

WILDOMAR, CA – May 24, 2022 — / / — Actiphy Inc., a leading publisher of backup, disaster recovery, and virtualization software announces a release update of ActiveImage Protector™ 2022 that places an emphasis on minimizing Recovery Time Objectives (RTO).

Businesses are required to prepare and implement disaster recovery, and business continuity plans. Natural disasters have become more impactful, and as global uncertainty increases, the threats of cyber-attacks are becoming more common. Corporate systems are becoming exposed and exploited. When disaster strikes, RTO is the most important benchmark for defining the quantity of time allowed for a system, app, or a process to be down and recovered before effecting significant damage to the business.

Reduce RTO using Actiphy’s HyperRecovery LIVE!™ to boot up a system from a backup image as a VM in a cloud or on-premise hypervisor and recover it simultaneously. With In-Cloud Standby™, keep an up-to-date instance of the system ready to start up and succeed the failed system.

Updated Features

  • HyperRecovery LIVE!
    Directly boot a virtual machine from a backup while migrating the virtual machine to a restored target, eliminating a separate restore process.
  • In-Cloud Standby
    Maintains the most current backup images as bootable standby machines in the cloud ready to succeed a failed system.
  • In-Cloud Recovery from On-premise or In-Cloud Storages
    Supports recovery of sources on cloud-bridged virtual networks (VLAN) and SFTP resources outside the cloud, or access cloud storage from outside the cloud environment.
  • RescueBoot and Remote Maintenance
    RescueBoot boots into Windows RE mode to perform cold backups, system recovery, or to remotely perform maintenance or diagnostics from the operating system.
  • File Backup Enhancements
    Newly added, exclusion of specific files or folders and supports the backup of Network Shared Folders.
  • Enhanced LTO Tape Management
    With newly enhanced management of LTO tape pools and libraries, tapes can now be moved within the library to be isolated from potential ransomware attacks.

ActiveImage Protector 2022 is a backup and recovery solution that protects physical and virtual, Windows and Linux environments. ActiveImage Protector includes all the tools necessary for enterprise-level deployment and management of backup, recovery, standby switch-over, and migration.

They have been the winner of the world’s most recognizable international advertising awards, the Clio Awards, and have a client list that includes world-renowned brands such as Coca-Cola, Nike, Riot Games, etc. However, the exploding data volume have left them with issues of storage performance and capacity.

The studio has been utilizing three NAS storage systems for special effects and non-linear editing, as well as file sharing, backup, and archive. Their major challenge is that the data is stored in three independent volumes, making them difficult to efficiently utilize the storage capacities and required manual maintenance to organize data to corresponding NAS systems. Therefore, the customer wishes to replace their storage system with a single volume solution to save management effort while offering dynamic expandability.

To meet their requirements, Infortrend offered five of their EonStor CS3024 scale-out NAS solutions. The multi-node scale-out NAS architecture provides a single volume for ease of management and expansion. The system can be further expanded by scaling out up to 144 nodes, and scaling up to 84 hard drives per node, reaching approximately 100PB of storage capacity to keep the ever-increasing projects.

The standout performance of EonStor CS3024 is HDD-based and cost-effective for 4K video editing, the 5-node cluster can support up to 34 layers of simultaneous playback without stuttering. With four SSDs integrated into each node as cache, it offers lower latency and boosts read/ write performances. Additionally, the solution provides a complete data protection design including RAID and Erasure code to avoid data loss caused by disk or node failures.

“EonStor CS has all the prerequisites a post-production house needs with its performance, flexible expandability, and a variety of data protection mechanisms for that extra peace of mind to create and edit with ease,” said Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning at Infortrend.

SAN ANTONIO, TX – May 23, 2022 — / / — Texas-based Jungle Disk, a leader in data backup and recovery, has announced its acquisition of ElephantDrive — the best-in-class consumer solution for long-term cloud storage of photos, videos, and documents.

The merger, which marks Jungle Disk’s first move into the consumer market, extends its suite of cloud backup offerings to this fast growing market segment. ElephantDrive will operate as an independent business unit, with a renewed mission to focus on the importance of protecting cherished family memories and critical documents.

Jungle Disk and ElephantDrive both launched in 2006 as early adopters of the first applications built on Amazon’s S3 storage platform. Jungle Disk has experienced rapid growth in the small, mid-size, and enterprise business markets following its acquisitions of KeepItSafe, LiveVault, and OffsiteDatasync in 2021. The addition of ElephantDrive to its portfolio of data backup and recovery companies positions the growing brand for success in the consumer market.

“With ElephantDrive, we can now also help consumers protect their family’s valuable memories and important personal documents. With both brands pioneering the cloud backup industry over the past 16 years, today launches an exciting new chapter for ElephantDrive as we begin leveraging our scale and experience for the benefit of consumers by preserving their lifetime of memories,” said Jungle Disk CEO Bret Piatt.

The merger will allow Jungle Disk to combine its backup and recovery infrastructure with ElephantDrive’s market-leading Network-Attached Storage (NAS) and consumer storage solutions, to create a powerhouse that serves every backup need of individuals and families.

“We launched ElephantDrive 16 years ago with the goal of making cloud backup easier and more accessible, building tight integrations along the way that enabled us to protect all devices in homes and businesses around the world,” said ElephantDrive CEO Michael Fisher. “We’re proud to join the Jungle Disk family and excited to scale the business further to ensure that no family suffers the digital disaster of losing their treasured memories.”

As part of the merger, Jungle Disk Chief Revenue Officer Nick Nelson assumes the role of Chairman and CRO of ElephantDrive and is committed to its mission of protecting family photos, videos, and documents.

Komprise Intelligent Data Management Platform automates the process of finding, tagging and delivering file and object data to cloud services and big data analytics platforms

CAMPBELL, Calif. – May 19, 2022 — / / — Komprise, the leader in analytics-driven unstructured data management and mobility, today announced Komprise Smart Data Workflows, a systematic process to discover relevant file and object data across cloud, edge and on-premises datacenters and feed data in native format to AI and machine learning (ML) tools and data lakes.

Industry analysts predict that at least 80% of the world’s data will be unstructured by 2025. This data is critical for AI and ML-driven applications and insights, yet much of it is locked away in disparate data storage silos. This creates an unstructured data blind spot, resulting in billions of dollars in missed big data opportunities.

Komprise has expanded Deep Analytics Actions to include copy and confine operations based on Deep Analytics queries, added the ability to execute external functions such as running natural language processing functions via API and expanded global tagging and search to support these workflows. Komprise Smart Data Workflows allow you to define and execute a process with as many of these steps needed in any sequence, including external functions at the edge, datacenter or cloud. Komprise Global File Index and Smart Data Workflows together reduce the time it takes to find, enrich and move the right unstructured data by up to 80%.

“Komprise has delivered a rapid way to visualize our petabytes of instrument data and then automate processes such as tiering and deletion for optimal savings,” says Jay Smestad, senior director of information technology at PacBio. “Now, the ability to automate workflows so we can further define this data at a more granular level and then feed it into analytics tools to help meet our scientists’ needs is a game changer.”

Komprise Smart Data Workflows are relevant across many sectors. Here’s an example from the pharmaceutical industry:

1) Search: Define and execute a custom query across on-prem, edge and cloud data silos to find all data for Project X with Komprise Deep Analytics and the Komprise Global File Index.

2) Execute & Enrich: Execute an external function on Project X data to look for a specific DNA sequence for a mutation and tag such data as “Mutation XYZ”.

3) Cull & Mobilize: Move only Project X data tagged with “Mutation XYZ” to the cloud using Komprise Deep Analytics Actions for central processing.

4) Manage Data Lifecycle: Move the data to a lower storage tier for cost savings once the analysis is complete.

Other Smart Data Workflow use cases include:

  • Legal Divestiture: Find and tag all files related to a divestiture project and move sensitive data to an object-locked storage bucket and move the rest to a writable bucket.
  • Autonomous Vehicles: Find crash test data related to abrupt stopping of a specific vehicle model and copy this data to the cloud for further analysis. Execute an external function to identify and tag data with Reason = Abrupt Stop and move only the relevant data to the cloud data lakehouse to reduce time and cost associated with moving and analyzing unrelated data.

“Whether it’s massive volumes of genomics data, surveillance data, IoT, GDPR or user shares across the enterprise, Komprise Smart Data Workflows orchestrate the information lifecycle of this data in the cloud to efficiently find, enrich and move the data you need for analytics projects,” says Kumar Goswami, CEO of Komprise. “We are excited to move to this next phase of our product journey, making it much easier to manage and mobilize massive volumes of unstructured data for cost reduction, compliance and business value.”

About Komprise
Komprise is a provider of unstructured data management and mobility software that frees enterprises to easily analyze, mobilize, and monetize the right file and object data across clouds without shackling data to any vendor. With Komprise Intelligent Data Management, you can cut 70% of enterprise storage, backup and cloud costs while making data easily available to cloud-based data lakes and analytics tools.

Ecosystem of App and Integration Solutions Drastically Expands Choice and Extensibility Across Security, Compliance, and IT Productivity

SAN JOSE, Calif. — May 18, 2022 — / / — Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, today announced that as more companies are looking for simple and effective ways to do more with data, Cohesity is expanding its Marketplace to not only include apps but integrations with brands that companies often rely on daily.

By unifying all integrations and featuring them in the Cohesity Marketplace, customers can explore and find solutions they need for their evolving data management and protection needs in one place. These solutions can help customers advance security, extend the value of the Cohesity next-gen data management platform, and address data management challenges.

“As the volume and value of data skyrockets for organizations of all shapes and sizes, the vulnerability of this data increases as well. It’s critical that business leaders tear down their data silos and embrace integrated solutions to bolster cybersecurity, improve operational productivity, and derive richer intelligence from their data,” said Kirk Law, senior vice president, research and development, Cohesity. “Delivering extensibility while maintaining simplicity is core to Cohesity’s next-gen data management approach, and this significant expansion of our Marketplace takes us into the next phase of that ambitious vision.”

“Next-generation data management means thinking about data management as a whole and moving away from a collection of siloed point solutions to a platform approach,” said Enrico Signoretti, senior data storage analyst, GigaOM. “For example, Cohesity provides an extensible platform so customers can leverage apps and integrations available in their marketplace, thereby consolidating solutions and providing access to third-party innovations to meet evolving needs.”

Cohesity is providing access to a variety of integrations out of the gate, making it even easier for security and IT teams to work together:

  • Cisco SecureX: Automatically sends Cohesity ransomware alerts directly to Cisco SecureX, where they can be logged, investigated, and acted upon as security incidents with the combined investigative and response capabilities of the customer’s connected security stack.
  • Palo Alto Networks Cortex™? XSOAR: The integration of Cohesity and Palo Alto Networks comprehensive security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform automates incident response when anomalies in backup data could indicate a ransomware attack.
  • Entrust: Provides a secure way to control enterprise-wide access to the critical data that drives organizations. In coordination with Cohesity’s data management and encryption capabilities, the Entrust KeyControl solution helps ensure encryption keys are managed across their lifecycle, data is secured, and restored in the event of a breach attempt or a ransomware attack.
  • Fortanix: Secures sensitive data across public, hybrid, multi cloud and private cloud environments, enabling customers to operate even the most sensitive applications across a wide array of environments. Cohesity is designed to encrypt backup data and Fortanix manages the keys, creating separation of duty.
  • Parablu: BluVault On-premises Backup is a powerful data backup solution designed to safeguard endpoint data with on-premises storage. Parablu Endpoint backup for laptops and mobile devices stores backup files on Cohesity, allowing organizations to restore endpoint data from Cohesity backups.

“We are excited to see Fortanix’s industry leading Data Security Manager (DSM) platform featuring FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified HSM and key management on the Cohesity Marketplace,” said Faiyaz Shahpurwala, chief product and strategy officer, Fortanix. “By combining our integrated, easy to use, encrypted key management solutions with Cohesity’s next-gen data management platform for data protection, recovery, and threat detection, customers can not only improve their security posture, but also help ensure compliance with regulations like Shrems II and GDPR.”

“Cyber integration with data resilience has become job No. 1 for organizations around the world. We are excited to be featured on Cohesity’s Marketplace for endpoint data security,” said Randy De Meno, chief strategy officer, Parablu. “Combining the advanced data management, protection and recovery capabilities of the Cohesity next-gen data management platform with our endpoint data protection solutions goes a long way to strengthening the cyber resilience of our joint customers while enabling partners to assist in modernizing their customers data strategy.”

Eighty-seven percent of UK AEC companies are concerned about ransomware attacks; 71 percent admit their plans for recovery are weak or could be better

READING, UK – May 19, 2022 — / / — Egnyte, the leader in cloud content security and governance, today released the findings of a benchmarking survey of UK Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) professionals to evaluate how the industry is responding to the threat of ransomware attacks. The survey reveals that despite 87 percent of respondents having strong concerns about ransomware attacks, 71 percent describe their firm’s recovery strategy as being ‘weak’, ‘could be better,’ or admit to having ‘no plan.’

The benchmark survey, completed in partnership with Digital Construction Week and Building Magazine, reveals the scale of the threat confronting the UK AEC industry today. Almost half (44 percent) of firms had experienced a ransomware attack in the past 24 months. Of these, 25 percent had experienced between two to four attacks and 5 percent had endured five attacks or more, with 28 percent of firms taking over a week to recover.

“AEC firms in the UK are becoming a top target for threat actors and will need to protect their sensitive data by managing access permissions, recognising ransomware early, and remediating fast in the face of a breach,” said Ronen Vengosh, VP of AEC at Egnyte. “Ransomware attacks can bring commercial operations to a standstill, jeopardising projects and tarnishing brand reputations in the process.”

In addition, the shared information environments AEC firms need to maintain to assure real-time collaboration with external contractors and employees based at job sites are major contributors to the security and governance challenges that companies face. Over a third (39 percent) of UK firms confirm they are finding it difficult to securely share and govern files, while only 27 percent are highly confident that the right people have the right access to files at all times.

“To protect their business, UK firms need to enable truly holistic defence programmes – featuring a combination of prevention strategies, content governance, and end-user education – to ensure they stay one step ahead of potential threats like ransomware attacks,” added Vengosh.

Further findings, together with tips on how AEC organisations can protect themselves from ransomware, are available here —

Joint Solution Empowers Customers with Detailed, Actionable Alerts to Stay Ahead of Threats

SAN JOSE, Calif. — May 18, 2022 — / / — Cohesity, a leader in next-gen data management, today announced it has joined forces with Palo Alto Networks to integrate its Cohesity Helios next-gen data management platform with Palo Alto Networks’ CortexTM XSOAR security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform for improved ransomware detection and recovery.

A key factor in defeating cyber attacks such as ransomware is how quickly the attack can be recognized and remediation steps initiated. This integration provides detailed automatic alerts when the AI-powered Helios platform detects anomalies in the backup data that could indicate an emerging attack. Once alerted by Cohesity, Cortex XSOAR initiates an automated playbook to triage and mitigate the impact of a potential cyber attack. Integrating a next-gen data management platform with a SOAR (Security Orchestration, Automation and Response) capability can help greatly accelerate threat detection and response and decrease an organization’s risk exposure.

“Any delay in ransomware response and recovery could result in extended downtime, data loss, and business disruption,” said Brian Spanswick, CISO, Cohesity. “This integration can help more effectively link data management and data security processes — key to staying one step ahead of ever-persistent ransomware attacks and improving an organization’s cyber resilience.”

“The integration of Cortex XSOAR with Cohesity’s next-gen data management platform is a significant advancement in helping our joint customers protect themselves from the impact of ransomware attacks and improve their cyber resilience,” said Matt Chase, director, Cortex Alliances at Palo Alto Networks. “The AI-powered Cohesity platform issues detailed alerts based on data anomalies. The granular quality of these alerts helps Cortex XSOAR security analysts more quickly and accurately determine the scope and severity of the incident, helping customers maintain business continuity in the event of an attack.”

Detailed and timely alerts can help security analysts quickly determine how best to respond and can help relieve pressure and burnout. According to a study by Forrester Consulting, “The 2020 State of Security Operations,” security analysts are being asked to fight a fire with a garden hose. Only 47% of respondents said their organizations are able to tackle most or all of the security alerts they receive in a single day. The other 53% reported struggling in several ways:

  • 20% of alerts are manually reviewed/triaged by an analyst.
  • Almost one-third of all alerts are false positives.
  • 28% of alerts are never addressed by analysts because the volume is simply too high for them to keep up.

The integration of Cohesity Helios and Palo Alto Networks’ Cortex XSOAR is designed to address and help alleviate the above issues.

Cohesity offers comprehensive anti-ransomware capabilities to help safeguard backup data from cybercriminals. The Cohesity architecture helps ensure that backup data is immutable and cannot be accidentally or maliciously overwritten. Its software, driven by AI-powered insights, continuously monitors for any anomalies in an organization’s data. If the worst happens, Cohesity helps locate and recover a clean copy of data to reduce downtime, minimize loss, and ensure business continuity.

Availability and Additional Information
The Cohesity Helios integration with Palo Alto Networks’ Cortex XSOAR is immediately available from the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace. Visit Cohesity Marketplace to learn more about the integration.

Gallo joins Parablu from Druva and Commvault where he helped build their respective channel businesses from the ground up, highlighting trust with partners such as SHI, Microsoft, and AWS.

Parablu’s SaaS solution for endpoints and Microsoft 365 is an area that helps partners secure their customers’ data in a time where more and more data reside outside the traditional data center. The main areas of focus for me are going to be the larger Microsoft/endpoint partners, Telcos using Azure, including Azure for Operators, and MSPs. We also look forward to leveraging our newly expanded partnership with Ingram Micro which will enable us to bring our solutions through their partners to customers across the globe”, added Gallo. “I’m thrilled to be reunited with CEO Anand Prahlad and CSO Randy De Meno and am excited to replicate at Parablu, the same success they had in building Commvault.”

  • Modular approach to data management optimizes IT architectures; cuts CapEx and OpEx
  • Scalable data storage brings flexibility to data-heavy workloads, on-prem to the cloud
  • Open protocols and standards unlock high-performance, low-space systems for media

LOS ANGELES, CA – May 18, 2022 — / / — OpenDrives, Inc., the global provider of enterprise-scale, software-powered storage solutions, announced today its latest software features as part of its Open Ecosystem solution. Powered by Atlas Core, the centralized hub for accessing, managing and moving data with a single pane of glass administrative view, the Open Ecosystem bridges software, hardware and services to facilitate workflows and workloads that require flexibility, modularity and scalability, with a fully vendor-agnostic framework.

“The true value of data materializes when users and applications are actively working with it, so it’s critical to move data rapidly to the right users and apps upon request,” said Sean Lee, chief strategy and operations officer at OpenDrives. “Whether it’s high-volume live broadcasting workflows to the tune of petabytes for millions of global viewers, or data-intensive workloads to accommodate a large user base in a primarily remote-first enterprise, our ‘Open Ecosystem’ was created to unlock data’s true value.”

OpenDrives leverages open protocols and standards to future-proof the entire data lifecycle, no matter the size, scale or location. New integrations with solutions partners, including Creative Mobile Solutions (CMSI), EVS, Western Digital and Signiant, provide the Open Ecosystem to liberate data.

Open Ecosystem Unlocks Enterprise-Scale Data Storage Functionality
OpenDrives has scaled from providing network-attached-storage (NAS) solutions rooted in media and entertainment to powering the Open Ecosystem built for enterprise-scale general purpose IT.

Previewed at NAB Show 2022, the full-suite solution now includes:

  • Atlas Core – underlying software functionality that powers multi-vendor, multi-cloud solutions with a seamless framework that connects partner solutions quickly and simply.
  • Atlas Cloud Plus – managed service solution for enterprises needing to adopt a hybrid cloud strategy to accelerate workloads in the cloud without the operational headaches.
  • Ultra Hardware Platform – scale up, scale out storage built to match individual complexities and performance demands with a 2U form factor.

New Software Capabilities with S3 Sharing, SMB and NFS and Containerization
OpenDrives also announced today the release of powerful new capabilities behind the latest software features from Atlas Core, including:

  • S3 Shares – create a local or distributed file system and then serve the filesystem as an S3 bucket endpoint; applications and clients can share the same data in the same filesystem using both object and file protocols.
  • Templates for SMB and NFS Shares – specify customizations for SMB/NFS shares to suit any environment and speed up deployment of any future provisioning.
  • Mount Management – access or reshare files or remote systems through common open protocols such as NFS, SMB, USB, and S3. S3 cloud partnerships allow customers to select AWS, SpectraLogic Black Pearl or Wasabi.
  • SED Management – take control of security measures with full management of self-encrypting drives with Atlas support of TCG standards, including Enterprise and Opal2.
  • Expanded Containerization – choose from a growing, open marketplace of pre-configured, containerized applications. Hashicorp Vault (cloud security automation), Archiware P5 (archive, backup, and cloning) and Resilio (real-time syncs) have been added.
  • New HD/HDX Modules – add these high-density, powerful options to the stack when massive scale and cost efficiency are a priority. Available with OpenDrives Optimum and Momentum hardware series.
  • Cluster Management – experience expanded clustering and management abilities for any scale-out and/or high-availability requirements.

Data Storage Management in Action for Large-Scale Live Broadcasting
For Fox Sports, a rapid shift to IP, remote-first workflows and 4K and 8K has put heavy demands on workflows. OpenDrives has provided the data framework to streamline this. The Open Ecosystem drives connections between multiple vendor applications that leverage open standards and protocols within a sophisticated workflow and provide speed and simplicity to guarantee a seamless live broadcasting experience, end-to-end.

“Most storage vendors don’t have all the technical capabilities to be truly hardware or software agnostic. Media organizations need excellence in execution across their storage and cloud solutions,” said Tom Coughlin, analyst and consultant at Coughlin Associates, Inc. “No one company has all the answers for this complex ecosystem. Using open standards and open APIs, so that media organizations can choose best-fit vendors, provides needed flexibility.”

Fox Sports has tripled throughput rates when switching to the Open Ecosystem for NASCAR. Capital and operational expenditures dropped when combining software integrations, such as containerization and virtualization, with 2U form factor hardware. Fox Sports recently tested the Open Ecosystem for its United States Football League reboot and will implement the system at scale for Qatar 2022.

“Our data functioned seamlessly under two-petabyte stress with multiple HelmetCams, up to 16 microphones per team and our Megalodon camera,” added Callahan. “OpenDrives has given us the open and agnostic infrastructure and the confidence to power the 80 live feed cameras and 8,000 mile location-to-editing room distance for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.”

OpenDrives Primes Enterprise for Unfettered Data Movement and Access
OpenDrives is evolving past a singular focus on engineering highly performant on-premise storage toward a broader emphasis on creating software-based solutions that facilitate unfettered movement and access of data between and across data environments. The company is building out its vision for an entire data environment designed around open standards and open integration: the Open Ecosystem.

“An agnostic multi-vendor, multi-cloud approach provides the pathway to optimizing data. But it will be interoperability and true ‘coopetition’ among solution providers that will make data movement borderless,” added Lee.
