Highlights of HYCU Customer Reviews on G2
“Installing and upgrading is very easy. Backups are executed reliably and HYCU does not need a Windows to run on. The support is excellent, cases are solved usually within a few hours. It works like a charm with Nutanix AHV and VMware vSpere, backup of MSSQL database is also easy. I check backups weekly and it takes only a few minutes even though we have four HYCU systems.” Cristian Seres

“HYCU helps not only to reach RPO and RTO targets on backup but, more importantly, also for recovery. The SLA based ‘set and forget’ features, the full integration with WORM capable storage and the plethora of online and on prem backup targets to choose from are great. Also, the online backup suite is great, easy to setup and never lets you down. Support (for running environment as well as while designing and setting up) is one of the best I know, just like the channel support for us (as reseller/integrator).” Martijn Stuart

“HYCU has great customer service with a knowledgeable staff. The software is easy to use and configure. I like how it integrates into Google and M365.” John French

“Easy to use. Backups are simple and restores too.” Joseph Kaplovitz

“Stable and fast back-ups. Good technical support. Technical person that together with you are looking for solution for your problem. Implementation was easy and fast the office backup was really easy. Restoring backup is fast and easy.” Olaf van Heeswijk

“The implementation was super easy, pricing was a no-brainer compared to others on the market, and the support has been unbelievable. We initially only wanted to back up virtual machines with HYCU but after working with Broderick G and Chris Rivera we decided to also backup our M365 with them as well. The product is simple and straightforward, has minimal to no impact on our environment, and backs up directly to an off-site cloud. When I did need some help Broderick my sales rep got ahold of me early that morning and ensured that he and Chris Rivera stayed in contact until the problem was resolved. It was one of the best support responses I have ever seen a company provide.” Sean Merrell

“The platform is incredibly easy to use and adds true business value.” Adam Jackson

“Great partner for SaaS backup solution, knowledgeable sales and technical staff that is easy to work with.” Paul Barry

“HYCU provides a great variety of solutions that are very intuitive and easy to deploy, adopt and integrate. SaaS based backup solutions are extremely simple to use and implement across Google Workspaces, Atlassian and many other platforms. The backup tooling allows customers to backup on-premises solutions across various platforms from VMware to Nutanix and on any cloud, especially Google Cloud Platform. SADA frequently recommends HYCU to our clients!” Fabien Duarte

“The deep integration of HYCU with Nutanix streamlines recovery processes, ensuring speed and simplicity; without this synergy, you face a convoluted recovery that can significantly extend system downtime.” Ashraf Jamal Abudheir

The growth of the cloud backup industry, over the last decade has been dramatic. The market has witnessed the rise and fall of many startups and stabilization of others. Interestingly, the companies that have gained a strong foothold in the industry are not all similar. There is a subtle distinction in the nature and types of services they offer. Some of these companies are pure enablers, while others combine enablement functions with direct-to-market services. Yet others, may license the software from enablers with or without re-branding options and service the cloud backup service needs of their clients.

Five distinct categories can be identified as under (click on links for details):
1/ Pure Enabler
2/ Enabler & Service Provider – Channel or Direct
3/ Service Provider – Channel Only
4/ Service Provider – Channel and Direct
5/ Service Provider – Direct Only (For complete list of companies, see our top monthly ranking list)

Based on a number of factors, such as technology, features, easy of use, dedication to MSPs, channel, revenue structure, reputation, support, price entry point, value, and corporate culture of the companies, we have summarized our rankings.

The companies are categorized in their respective columns. If we have made an error in the category or companies have changed their business plan and as a result need to be categorized in a different column, please let us know.

Enterprise Plus Customers Will Have Unlimited Access to Box AI in Notes, Documents, and Hubs

Box AI Features Include GPT-4o Integration in Hubs, Additional File Types, New Developer Tools

REDWOOD CITY, CA – June 27, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX), the Intelligent Content Cloud, today announced that end user queries in Box AI for Hubs, Documents, and Notes will be unlimited for customers on its Enterprise Plus plan. Box also unveiled a new set of features in Box AI that includes an integration with GPT-4o, support for image and spreadsheet files, and the Box AI for Metadata API.

“AI represents a fundamental shift in how enterprises work with their content, enabling organizations to extract insights from their unstructured data, automate and accelerate critical business processes, and protect their IP in ways that have never been possible before,” said Aaron Levie, Co-founder and CEO of Box. “Since Box AI became generally available earlier this year, we’ve seen significant interest from customers to upgrade to Enterprise Plus plans so they can benefit from the power of AI with their content. Today’s announcements will make it even easier for customers to roll out Box AI across their enterprise while also delivering new innovation so they will be able to get additional value from Box AI.”

“The improvements we’ve made to the Box AI platform – combined with the decreasing cost of AI over the past few months – have driven tremendous efficiencies and, as a result, we are removing our query limits in Box AI,” said Ben Kus, Chief Technology Officer at Box. “The combination of AI and unstructured data represents the biggest untapped opportunity in enterprise IT, and we want Box customers to be on the leading edge of innovation with Box AI as a core part of the Box platform.”

“At IDEXX, we see Box AI as a huge value-add to the Box Content Cloud,” said Ken Grady, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer at IDEXX. “Removing the query limits and offering unlimited AI usage makes adopting AI significantly easier across our organization. The ability to scale AI seamlessly and simplify management allows us to focus on leveraging AI to drive value without worrying about usage caps or unexpected expenses.”

“Box’s integration with GPT-4o will help enterprises drive efficiency and innovation with best-in-class AI,” said Brad Lightcap, COO at OpenAI. “This is a great example of how the OpenAI platform is being seamlessly integrated into enterprises across all industries.”

New Box AI Innovation

In addition to offering unlimited end user queries to Enterprise Plus customers using Box AI, Box also announced the following enhancements to Box AI, expected to be available later this year:

  • Integration with GPT-4o: Box plans to support the new GPT-4o model in Box AI. GPT-4o provides advanced capabilities that help Box Hubs deliver higher quality answers and increased support for over 20 additional languages. With this planned integration, Box Hubs users will also benefit from enhanced text-related functionalities including multimodal understanding, ethical and sensitive content handling, task-specific adaptation, and more.
  • Support for additional file types: Box will support natural language queries on image file formats, allowing users to ask specific questions about an image stored in Box. Additional support will include querying on spreadsheets. Users will be able to execute commands for precise data analysis in spreadsheets, simplifying interactions with large structured data sets and accelerating insight generation.
  • All-New Metadata API: Developers will be able to integrate Box AI with custom applications using the new Box AI for Metadata API to automatically extract key information from documents at scale. When combined with Box’s workflow automation tools, customers will be able to automate processes based on file metadata, extract key fields from unstructured content, and save information to external applications such as Salesforce.

Box AI Powers Intelligent Content Management
Box AI leverages the power of generative AI to bring foundational AI models to the Box Content Cloud – where more than 115,000 enterprises already secure, store, and collaborate on their critical business content. Guided by its AI Principles, Box has built Box AI on the company’s platform-neutral framework, designed to connect with today’s most powerful large language models, including Microsoft’s Azure OpenAI Service and Google Cloud’s Vertex AI – with more model integrations to come.

Today, businesses already rely on Box AI to easily extract the information they need from their documents, generate their own new content automatically, or derive timely insights from their content to transform how they work and accelerate workflows in their businesses.

For example:

  • Life sciences organizations are extracting insights from clinical studies to help streamline product development.
  • Financial services firms are analyzing financial files and investor relations documents to inform advisors of market updates.
  • Marketing managers are using Box AI to generate fresh and editable content quickly in the form of blogs, LinkedIn posts, and other social media.
  • HR leads are using Box AI to search sensitive documents including company policies and employee records to find the answers employees need most.
  • Nonprofit organizations are using Box AI to attach metadata to contracts to help organize their content.

“AI promises to revolutionize businesses across every industry by automating routine tasks, enhancing decision-making capabilities, but enterprises might be hesitant to invest in AI company-wide, at the individual user level, because of cost concerns and other factors,” said Amy Machado, Senior Research Manager at IDC. “By removing these query caps for Box AI, Box can lower the barrier of entry to AI, making it easier for businesses to integrate and benefit from this powerful technology. Box’s Content Cloud is well positioned to expand AI adoption in the enterprise by providing a secure, intelligent platform that empowers its customers to harness the full potential of their data.”

WALTHAM, MA – June 27, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Infinidat, a leading provider of enterprise storage solutions, has introduced a new automated cyber resiliency and recovery solution that will revolutionize how enterprises can minimize the impact of ransomware and malware attacks. Infinidat’s InfiniSafe® Automated Cyber Protection (ACP) is a first-of-its-kind cybersecurity integration solution that is designed to reduce the threat window of cyberattacks, such as ransomware. Sophisticated cyberattacks, including new sinister forms of AI-driven attacks, are increasingly targeting the data storage infrastructure of enterprises.

Infinidat’s InfiniSafe ACP enables enterprises to easily integrate with their Security Operations Centers (SOC), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Security Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) cybersecurity software applications, and simple syslog functions for less complex environments. A security-related incident or event triggers immediate automated immutable snapshots of data, providing the ability to protect InfiniBox® and InfiniBox™ SSA block-based volumes and/or file systems and ensure near instantaneous cyber recovery.

“The merging of cybersecurity and data infrastructure has been compelling CIOs, CISOs and IT team leaders to rethink how to secure enterprise storage across hybrid multi-cloud deployments in light of increasing cyberattacks. Enterprises need proactive strategies, seamless integration across IT domains, and the most advanced, automated technologies to stay ahead of cyber threats,” said Eric Herzog, CMO at Infinidat. Recognized as a cyber secure storage expert, Herzog is coming off participation in a string of cybersecurity panel discussions, roundtables and conference events.

“Infinidat has carved out a very unique leadership position as the only storage vendor to offer an automated enterprise storage cyber protection solution that seamlessly integrates with cyber security software applications,” said Chris Evans, Principal Analyst at Architecting IT. “Infinidat’s newly launched InfiniSafe Automated Cyber Protection that easily meshes with the SIEM, SOAR or Security Operations Centers is exactly what enterprises need to include enterprise storage as a comprehensive approach to combat cyber threats.”

Infinidat’s new InfiniSafe ACP capability orchestrates the automatic taking of immutable snapshots of data, at the speed of compute, to stay ahead of cyberattacks by decisively cutting off the proliferation of data corruption.

Evans added, “This proactive cyber protection technique is extremely valuable, as it enables taking immediate immutable snapshots of data at the first sign of a potential cyberattack. This provides a significant advancement to ensure enterprise cyber storage resilience and recovery are integral to an enterprise’s cybersecurity strategy. ACP enhances an enterprise’s overall cyber resilience by reducing the threat window and minimizing the impact of cyberattacks on enterprise storage environments.”

The InfiniSafe Automated Cyber Protection is one of the biggest innovations of the year in cybersecurity because it unlocks the full potential of an enterprise’s security posture and maximizes the investments that an enterprise has made in protecting the business. By plugging into existing security mechanisms and continuous monitoring, InfiniSafe ACP bridges the gaps between enterprise storage and cybersecurity strategies that can transform the way CIOs and CISOs think about enterprise data infrastructures.

Information technology leaders have identified this ability to automate data snapshot commands and data pathways as critical to early detection and worry-free cyber recovery that minimizes the effects of even the most vicious and deceptive cyberattacks of malicious actors. An enterprise’s security team can put all its information from security operations through an enterprise storage intelligence grid to create the most sensitive triggers that often get missed by existing technologies and techniques.

Paul Rapier, VP of Information Technology at the Detroit Pistons, stated, “Infinidat’s efforts in enhancing cyber resilience for enterprises, particularly through the new InfiniSafe Automated Cyber Protection, are noteworthy for data security.”

Allen Shahdadi, Vice President of Global Sales at Sycomp, said, “Infinidat has become synonymous with guaranteed cyber resilient storage. Infinidat continues to deliver powerful solutions that solve critical cyber issues for enterprises and service providers around the globe. The InfiniSafe Automated Cyber Protection solution brings much needed capabilities to fight more effectively against cyberattacks. The automatic capture of immutable snapshots of primary data could be the difference between your data being held ransom and the rapid recovery of your data. Before international cybercriminals, hackers and fraudsters can gain an advantage, Infinidat’s InfiniSafe reduces the threat window decisively.”

The InfiniSafe Automated Cyber Protection solution is the latest in a string of cybersecurity capabilities that Infinidat has brought forward to strengthen enterprise storage in the face of constant threats of a tsunami of cyberattacks. Infinidat has also unveiled the following extensions of its state-of-the-art cyber resilient capabilities:

InfiniSafe Cyber Detection for VMware – Access to InfiniSafe cyber resilience capabilities to combat cyberattacks has been expanded into VMware environments. The impact of a cyberattack can be readily determined through this cyber detection capability, with highly granular insights by leveraging AI and machine learning whether or not a VMware datastore and the VM’s they encompass have been compromised.

InfiniSafe Cyber Detection for InfiniGuard® – Cyber detection will be extended onto the InfiniGuard purpose-built backup appliance to help enterprises resist and quickly recover from cyberattacks. This proven capability provides highly intelligent scanning and indexing to identify signs of cyber threats in backup environments, helping ensure that data has integrity. The enhanced version will be available in 2H 2024.

As a leader in cyber resilient storage, Infinidat first unveiled its InfiniSafe software-based platform two years ago with a set of cybersecurity functions. This solution has won numerous awards and has been proven by large global enterprises. The comprehensive cyber resilience capabilities of InfiniSafe technology improve the ability of an enterprise to combat and protect against ever-increasing cyberattacks and data breaches by uniquely combining immutable snapshots, logical air gapping, fenced/isolated networks, and virtually instantaneous data recovery into a single, high-performance platform.

The InfiniSafe ACP is the latest example of Infinidat’s broadening innovation. It was introduced alongside the launch of the InfiniBox G4 family of next-generation storage arrays for all-flash and hybrid configurations. The G4 series is a completely new storage array family built from the ground up that substantially extends Infinidat’s cyber storage resilience and delivers up to 2.5x improvement in performance. The InfiniBox G4 series introduces a new set of foundational elements, powered by InfuzeOS, which is Infinidat’s software defined storage operating system.

Webinar to identify current trends, comprehensive outlook on the evolving ransomware landscape and the impact on the cyber security insurance market

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – June 26, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Keepit, a global provider of cloud backup and recovery solutions, today announced that it will be presenting a webinar titled, “From threat to defense: Cyber insurance woes as ransomware surges”, on June 27, 2024. Facilitated by Keepit, the webinar will explore recent developments in the market and engage a panel of cybersecurity and information technology (IT) experts to discuss trends in ransomware and how they affect organizations’ ability to secure cyber insurance today. The panel of experts includes Andrew Wildrix, cybersecurity and IT leader, former Chief Information Officer and current Vice President of Business Development at Intrusion; Kim Larsen, Chief Information Security Officer at Keepit and advisor on cybersecurity; and Dara Gibson, Senior Manager at cyber insurability services provider, Optiv.

Ransomware plagues security professionals – and, in turn, the companies that insure them – more than ever before: A staggering 75% of organizations fell victim to a successful ransomware attack at least once in 2023 alone. The relentless evolution of this threat demands constant vigilance and security tactics that can keep up with the threats as they evolve.

“When we talk to customers, we often hear about their ransomware defense; they talk about EDR or XDR tools and so on. Those tools are important, but they’re not enough by themselves,” said Paul Robichaux, Microsoft MVP and Senior Director of Product Management at Keepit, who will moderate the webinar. “For example, the Snowflake breaches look like they’re the result of old-fashioned credential reuse. Cyber insurers are looking beyond what tools you’ve bought and asking hard questions about your end-to-end business continuity strategy, including what you do for data protection.”

In addition to covering recent market developments and trends in the ransomware threat landscape and their impact on the ability of organizations to secure cyber insurance, the panel will also discuss the insurer’s perspective on cybersecurity. Webinar participants will gain an understanding of how underwriter requirements are changing in the market, the escalation of rates, limitations in coverage, and receive actionable insights that can help organizations determine whether cyber insurance is the right strategy for them.

Takeaways from the webinar will include:

  • Perspectives on the recent Snowflake breaches;
  • An understanding of current trends and a comprehensive outlook on the evolving ransomware landscape;
  • Valuable insights into the key challenges organizations face to inform their cybersecurity and cyber insurance strategy;

Critical Need for Acceleration in Cloud Adoption, AI Readiness, and Cyber Resiliency Fuels Demand for Nasuni’s Hybrid Cloud Data Platform

BOSTON and PARIS – June 25, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / —  Nasuni, a leading enterprise data platform for hybrid cloud environments, announced today its further investment and expansion into the French market, strengthening its European presence. Nasuni’s state-of-the-art data platform built for hybrid cloud supports enterprises facing growing unstructured data volumes with effortless scalability, built-in security, fast edge performance, and AI-ready data.

Organizations across France are embracing the AI revolution, a market which is set to grow by over 28% from 2024 to 2030. This is unearthing a critical need for enterprises to unlock unstructured data repositories and curate AI-ready data. In parallel, the evolving cybersecurity threat landscape in France (the fifth most attacked country by ransomware) is putting enterprise data at risk.

Operating in France since 2017, Nasuni is experiencing strong demand from organizations across France and Europe for its ground-breaking data platform. Organizations rely on Nasuni to turn unstructured data into rich repositories in order to drive AI implementations across their businesses while strengthening cyber resilience and cutting infrastructure costs. Nasuni’s client roster already includes 9 of France’s top 50 market cap companies. Customers include Pernod Ricard, TBWA, Colas, Safran, and France Habitation.

“We’re seeing a rapid rise of forward-thinking French businesses undergoing cloud transformations to accelerate AI implementations and secure data in the face of evolving ransomware threats,” says Chris Addis, Vice President of Sales, EMEA at Nasuni. “Our expansion in the French market across sales, technical sales, and partnerships reflects the growing demands we’re seeing for the Nasuni File Data Platform in supporting enterprises with these challenges and driving growth. We are excited to have now achieved critical mass in France, and this rapid growth alongside the growth of our partner network marks an exciting time for Nasuni as we continue to expand operations in Europe.”

Nasuni’s key partnerships in France include arcITek, an innovative French IT services provider. Together, Nasuni and arcITek support French businesses by accelerating cloud transformations, delivering robust cyber resiliency, and enabling successful AI implementations. Nasuni also works closely with hyperscalers Microsoft, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Google Cloud, and supports enterprise customers across a host of different sectors in France, with a focus on automotive, manufacturing, consumer goods, engineering, and energy.

“It’s an exciting time as enterprises are rapidly adopting AI to drive efficiencies and innovation, and accelerating cloud transformations to enable this,” says Taniel Doniguian, president at arcITek. “It’s great to see French businesses adopting modern data platforms to drive their business growth, and we’re delighted to work with Nasuni to provide this critical solution. We support enterprises in implementing these technologies and Nasuni has been a key partner of ours for a number of years, helping us to provide firms with the efficient and secure ability to access and manage their unstructured file data while readying for the adoption of GenAI.”

Nasuni’s expansion in the French market follows another year of strong momentum for the company, which added more than 120+ new large enterprise customers across all verticals in 2023. Nasuni recently announced the major repositioning of its entire brand identity, underpinned by this overall business growth and Nasuni’s continuous product innovation including the launches earlier this year of Nasuni Edge for Amazon S3 to deliver high performance at the edge and Nasuni IQ to help enterprises unlock data silos for AI services.

New interconnection capability with Wasabi cloud storage provides digital enterprises with additional IP Bandwidth options and premium connectivity

CHARLOTTE, NC – June 25, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / —  Flexential, a leading provider of secure and flexible data center solutions, today announced its continued expansion of its FlexAnywhere® Platform and connectivity ecosystem by offering the industry’s first bilateral peering pathway to Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company. Customers using Flexential’s blended IP transit solution, IP Bandwidth, can use this direct connectivity to transfer data from Flexential’s colocation or cloud environment to Wasabi storage services.

The enhancement is available to any customers using Wasabi cloud storage services over Flexential IP Bandwidth across all 41 Flexential data centers and service locations in the U.S. The peering relationships have been deployed in all of Wasabi’s major metros in the U.S., which include Ashburn, VA; Plano, TX; and Hillsboro, OR.

High performance and mission critical applications require high speed, along with reliable and secure connectivity that can scale quickly and cost-effectively. In addition, outages, bad routing, and other network problems most often occur between different networks than within a network. As such, avoiding the need to traverse more networks allows for higher performance over time.

Flexential’s bilateral peering capability with Wasabi provides a premium internet experience for customers who require high performance without the additional costs and complexity associated with establishing private connections. Wasabi cloud storage enables companies to gain the freedom to use their data whenever they like without unpredictable fees or vendor lock-in. With bilateral peering, Flexential customers can utilize Wasabi storage services over standard internet connections without traffic egress to an Internet Service Provider (ISP), resulting in a direct connection to Wasabi for dramatically improved performance.

Key benefits that users of the peering pathway receive include:

  • Improved performance by reducing reliance on middle networks to help achieve low latency.
  • Cost effectiveness by avoiding costs associated with deploying private connections. Wasabi never charges for egress fees or API requests, providing users with predictably priced, high performance cloud storage.
  • A better security posture by optimizing traffic routes, reducing exposure to potential threats.
  • The technical simplicity that comes with being a Flexential IP Bandwidth customer, meaning no technical changes are required to access the peering network.

“Enterprises today are seeking high capacity, reliable networks as they scale their high-performance applications, from AI to data-intensive cloud offerings. That’s why Flexential is constantly expanding its interconnection services, and our peering connection to Wasabi is the latest innovation aimed at unlocking value for customers across the U.S.,” said Ryan Mallory, Chief Operating Officer at Flexential. “Partnering to deliver this best-in-class interconnection experience reflects our joint commitment to innovation and enabling reliable, cost-effective traffic exchange.”

Flexential’s bilateral peering with Wasabi also offers numerous security benefits by streamlining traffic flows and reducing exposure to potential threats. While highly connected digital applications need to maintain access to networks, content providers, and exchange participants, peering offers reliable low-latency connections that ensure optimized routes, reducing the physical distance traffic must travel to its destination and providing more control and predictability over latency.

“Wasabi and partners like Flexential are committed to providing organizations with fast, secure and reliable cloud solutions so companies can focus on innovating without worrying about cloud storage bills or slow performance,” said Jim Donovan, Chief Product Officer at Wasabi. “Wasabi and Flexential empower businesses to affordably store the data that propels their operations.”

Flexential’s peering arrangement comes as the company continues to expand and innovate the FlexAnywhere Platform and follows several other significant interconnection announcements, such as the launch of Flexential Fabric.

Utilizing Flexential Fabric, a software defined interconnection solution, to access Wasabi cloud storage environments enables customers to dynamically scale their connectivity and provision dedicated connections for segmented storage traffic to further optimize performance.

Conducted in conjunction with GigaOm, global survey finds resiliency markers impact confidence, preparedness, and recoverability

TINTON FALLS, NJ – June 25, 2024 — /BackupReview.info / –Commvault, a leading provider of cyber resilience and data protection solutions for the hybrid cloud, today in collaboration with research firm GigaOm, released its 2024 Cyber Recovery Readiness Report.This eye-opening, global survey of 1,000 security and IT respondents across 11 countries directly addresses a fundamental question – “what can businesses do to be more resilient in the face of cyberattacks?”

Commvault and GigaOm were able to pinpoint five key capabilities, also called resiliency markers, that when deployed together, helped companies recover faster from cyberattacks and experience fewer breaches compared to companies that did not follow the same path.

These five resiliency markers emerged after data analysis teams combed through survey results across a range of topics including: how often companies were breached, what resilience technologies were (or were not) deployed, and how rapidly businesses were able to recover data and resume normal operations. The resiliency markers are as follows:

  1. Security tools that enable early warning about risk, including insider risk.
  2. A known-clean dark site or secondary system in place.
  3. An isolated environment to store an immutable copy of the data.
  4. Defined runbooks, roles, and processes for incident response.
  5. Specific measures to show cyber recovery readiness and risk.

In assessing the results, only 13% of respondents were categorized as cyber mature. The survey yielded very interesting observations:

  • Faster recoveries: Cyber mature organizations, those that have deployed at least four of the five resiliency markers, recovered 41% faster than respondents with only zero or one marker.
  • Fewer breaches: Overall, cyber mature organizations report experiencing fewer breaches compared with companies that have less than four markers.
  • Better confidence about cyber readiness: 54% of cyber mature organizations were completely confident in their ability to recover from a breach, compared to only 33% of less prepared organizations.
  • Frequent testing makes a big difference: 70% of cyber mature organizations tested their recovery plans quarterly, compared to 43% of organizations with only zero or one maturity marker, that tested with this same frequency.

Supporting Quotes
“One of the key findings from the research is that in order to truly advance cyber preparedness, organizations can’t cut corners. We saw significant disparities in resilience between organizations that deployed one or two of the resiliency markers versus four or five,” said Chris Ray, Cybersecurity Analyst, GigaOm. “It’s critical that organizations think about resiliency in layers. Less than 85% of respondents surveyed do that today. This needs to rapidly change if companies want to be resilient and have the upper hand against bad actors.”

“As we drill down into these cyber capabilities, key practices are emerging as fundamentally critical to any cyber preparedness strategy, and testing for cyber recovery readiness is one of them,” said Tim Zonca, VP, Portfolio Marketing, Commvault. “Companies that just focus on testing for disaster recovery are missing the boat. Given the evolving nature of cyber threats, frequent and modern testing practices for cyber recovery are essential so environments are not re-infected and recovery processes are robust.”

More Information

Methodology
Commvault in conjunction with GigaOm conducted this inaugural study of 1,000 respondents across 11 countries in April 2024 to better understand their views on cyber readiness and how prepared their organizations are in the face of cyber threats. Respondents were from companies earning at least $10 million in annual revenues, with the majority earning $500 million or more. Thirty-five percent of respondents were board-level or C-Suite executives, 48% were senior-level management, and the remaining 17% were mid- or junior-level management. The 11 countries included in the survey are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, and United States.

About Commvault<
Commvault (NASDAQ: CVLT) is the gold standard in cyber resilience, helping more than 100,000 organizations keep data safe and businesses resilient and moving forward. Today, Commvault offers the only cyber resilience platform that combines the best data security and rapid recovery at enterprise scale across any workload, anywhere—at the lowest.

The siloed solutions available in today’s storage market for high capacity and high performance drive end users to either invest heavily in flash, settle for lower-quality flash at a higher cost, or rely on slower disks. StorONE v3.8 solves these issues by efficiently utilizing enterprise-grade hardware for a cost effective solution without any performance compromise on ONE Enterprise Storage Platform.

“Up until now, multi-tiered storage was too costly, too slow, limited protocol support, and/or missing essential Enterprise functionality,” said Marc Staimer, President of Dragon Slayer Consulting. “StorONE is solving this problem with their highly innovative Enterprise Data Storage Platform at a very affordable price.”

This latest version, 3.8, is designed to protect against ransomware threats and leverage the latest disk advances to fully utilize advanced capabilities, ensuring future-proof storage environments. StorONE transforms storage infrastructure into a strategic asset that drives value for enterprises.

The new version accelerates data transfer between the two media types, dynamically managing metadata for optimal utilization, maintaining performance levels while delivering up to 60% storage cost savings.
  • Advanced Data Protection: The new version supports up to 100,000 immutable snapshots for large volumes without any significant overhead, ensuring rapid snapshot creation without performance degradation. Version 3.8 supports rapid ransomware recovery with high RTO maintaining 12-36 months of snapshots in the HDD tier.
  • Enhanced Data Security: StorONE has focused on providing three critical advantages for storage administrators: strengthening data breach defenses, acting as the last line of defense in detecting breaches, and enabling rapid recovery in case of an attack. The latest features in v3.8 enhance these capabilities, offering excellent protection and fast service restoration post-attack.
  • Flexible Deployment: The new product installation capability allows for full deployment on-site without any cloud connection or the option to connect to the cloud for statistics and management purposes.

“Modern data-rich companies are creating, sharing, and safeguarding enormous amounts of data on- premises and in the cloud. The high performance of StorONE efficiently handles data ensuring universal access and strategic data placement, while seamlessly integrating with various locations and cloud services at the most competitive price,” said Gal Naor, CEO of StorONE. “This combination of features allows organizations to concentrate on leveraging data’s value and utility, adhere to corporate cloud-first strategies, and reduce overall ownership costs.”

StorONE allows resource-competitive workloads to co-exist within the same storage environment, easing administrative overhead while simplifying the deployment, support, and cost of the data services required for an environment. StorONE consolidates all storage use cases into a single product, delivering high capacity with high performance at an affordable price.

With the industry’s record number of concurrent SLAs, customers get the reliability, performance, and sustainability their business requires.

Further advancing Pure’s existing cyber resiliency offerings, including SafeMode for ransomware recovery, today, Pure announced new innovations enabled by the platform including:

  • Enhanced Cyber Recovery and Resilience SLABuilding on the first-of-its-kind ransomware recovery SLA, Evergreen//One™ is expanding its coverage to include disaster recovery scenarios as well. This new and improved Cyber Recovery and Resilience SLA delivers a customized recovery plan, ships clean service infrastructure within a defined SLA, provides onsite installation, and supplies additional professional services for data transfer. In addition, Pure will collaborate with organizations to build and maintain a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. Ongoing quarterly reviews are included to ensure best practices adherence, ongoing risk assessments, and operational security remediation. Organizations can rest assured knowing if an unforeseen disruptive event occurs, Pure will help rapidly restore normal operations, guaranteed
  • New Security Assessment: The new assessment provides deep visibility into fleet-level security risks and offers actionable recommendations to maximize cyber resilience. Based on aggregated intelligence across 10,000+ environments, the Security Assessment presents numerical scores from 0 to 5 to benchmark the security posture of the entire storage fleet. It also delivers best practices to align with NIST 2.0 standards, advance regulatory compliance, remediate potential security anomalies, and rapidly restore operations if a security-related event occurs. Additionally, the new AI copilot leverages the security assessment to provide Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) with the visibility into benchmarking their security posture against other Pure Storage customers.
  • New AI-Powered Anomaly Detection Enhancement: Discover threats such as ransomware attacks, unusual activity, malicious behavior, and Denial of Service attacks via performance anomalies. This expands on previously available ransomware detection based on data reduction anomalies. The expanded detection is built on multiple machine learning models running to identify unusual anomalous behavior. The models analyze customer environments with historical data for anomalous patterns based on heuristics of performance as well as user context on how storage is used. Leveraging this capability, customers can identify the last known good snapshot copy to mitigate operational impact by quickly identifying recovery point targets to restore data, reducing risk and guesswork.

In today’s dynamic market and competitive landscape, it is imperative for IT to be able to rapidly adapt. As the only STaaS solution that allows both scaling up and down the service, today Pure Storage further distanced itself by providing even more flexibility:

  • New Site Rebalance SLA: The Evergreen//One Site Rebalance SLA delivers service flexibility for organizations looking to adjust existing reserve commitments as their storage requirements evolve. If there are no longer capacity needs at a specific site, if a data center is being consolidated, or if performance at one site was oversized and excess capacity exists that can be used elsewhere, the Site Rebalance SLA empowers organizations to rebalance reserve commitments once every 12 months for each Evergreen//One subscription.

“As Pure Storage continues to revolutionize enterprise data storage, our mission remains: to provide a simple, flexible, and resilient as-a-service storage platform that not only addresses current data and storage management needs, but mitigates future risk and uncertainty. Through continuously improving services and the broadest set of outcome-driven SLAs, Pure is the only data storage platform future-proofed for innovation.” — Prakash Darji, GM, Digital Experience, Pure Storage

“Today’s enterprises demand more than just technology; they seek assured outcomes. Reliable, flexible consumption models for enterprise storage that scale with business needs are essential. Pure Storage’s STaaS platform offers a market differentiating, comprehensive set of guaranteed SLAs, striking a balance between flexibility and simplicity while delivering high performance and resilience – all in support of customer growth in today’s dynamic business landscape.” — Lara Greden, Senior Research Director, IT Infrastructure as-a-Service Solutions, Flexible Consumption, and Circular Economy, IDC

Pledge underscores commitment to AI ethical best practices across the organization to help protect partners through the pillars of consent, transparency, and context

Burlington, Massachusetts – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — N-able, Inc. (NYSE: NABL), a global software company helping IT services providers deliver remote monitoring and management, data protection as-a-service, and security solutions, today announced its Pledge on the Responsible Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The pledge describes the company’s commitment to openness and protecting partner data and intellectual property.

The newly unveiled AI strategy outlined in the pledge is built on three pillars: consent, transparency, and context—and designed to foster user control and privacy, clear communication, and appropriate use. Specifically:

  • Consent: Opt-in is our fundamental principle, and we ask for your consent before you engage with any AI in our products or services. Affirmative consent ensures we respect user preferences and privacy while mitigating risks associated with unauthorized data usage.
  • Transparency: We prioritize accountability, education, and informed decision-making; and we’ll tell you when and how we’re using AI tools with your data. The more knowledge our partners have, the more confidence they’ll have to explore the possibilities of AI.
  • Context: We strive to deliver maximum value and effectiveness through careful, efficient use of technology. This means we’ll continuously work to understand the unique challenges and requirements of each situation and narrowly tailor AI solutions to each use case.

“We believe that artificial intelligence will bring significant benefits and efficiency to our partners,” explained Nicole Reineke, N-able Distinguished Product Manager and Director of AI Strategy. “Yet, it demands a prudent balance of oversight to safeguard customer data and to clarify for data owners the uses and implications of these algorithms. At N-able, we are dedicated to unlocking AI’s potential responsibly, ensuring transparency, and upholding the autonomy that our partners deserve concerning their data. It’s crucial to bear in mind the ‘artificial’ in AI and build for human oversight to maintain an ethical approach, a commitment that signifies a major step in our journey.”

“I believe that we are at a key transformational point in our industry,” shares Jimmy Puckett, CEO of SPINEN. “I expect amazing advances at speeds we have never seen before. As an industry, I believe we have invested great resources in protecting our data and our clients’ data from security breaches, and we must invest as much as or more in controlling how the data we manage is being used in AI. It is critical as MSPs that we have a full understanding of how and where both our data and our clients’ data are being used. We are thrilled to see N-able take such a proactive stance on data sovereignty —this is a great example of partnership. We are advising our SPINEN clients to only partner with companies that have a similar perspective.”

The pledge includes some helpful guidance on how MSPs can use AI to improve their efficiencies.

N-able is also implementing AI to maximize the efficiency of its operations, including partner interactions, resolution times, prediction of device behaviors, and system performance, as outlined in the pledge.

About N-able
N-able fuels IT services providers with powerful software solutions to monitor, manage, and secure their customers’ systems, data, and networks.

Accelerating AI Success in the Enterprise with the Pure Storage Platform
In the new Innovation Race survey of 1,500 global CIOs and decision makers commissioned by Pure Storage, nearly all respondents (98%) state that their organization’s data infrastructure must improve to support initiatives like AI. AI is evolving so rapidly that IT is struggling to keep up, much less predict what’s next. Companies large and small are realizing that they are locked into inflexible storage architectures lacking enterprise-grade reliability, unable to resize or upgrade performance without complex and risky infrastructure planning.

Pure Storage is introducing new innovations in the platform that help businesses accelerate successful AI deployments today, and future proof for tomorrow. The Pure Storage platform empowers organizations to unlock the value of their data with AI, while delivering agility to instantly scale capacity and performance up and down independently, without disruption.

  • New Evergreen//One™ for AI – First Purpose-Built AI Storage as-a-Service: Provides guaranteed storage performance for GPUs to support training, inference, and HPC workloads, extending Pure Storage’s leadership position for capacity subscriptions and introduces the ability to purchase based on dynamic performance and throughput needs. The new SLA uniquely delivers the performance needed and eliminates the need for planning or overbuying by paying for throughput performance.
  • Secure Application Workspaces with Fine-Grained Access Controls: Combines Kubernetes container management, secure multi-tenancy, and policy governance tools to enable advanced data integrations between enterprise mission-critical data and AI clusters. This makes storage infrastructure transparent to application owners, who gain fully automated access to AI innovation without sacrificing security, independence, or control.

Pure to Expand and Accelerate Enterprise Adoption of AI with Planned NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD Certification

Pure Storage was among the first enterprise storage vendors to work with NVIDIA to achieve NVIDIA DGX BasePOD certification and NVIDIA OVX validation. Building upon this pioneering collaboration for AI-ready infrastructure, Pure expects to be a certified storage solution for NVIDIA DGX SuperPOD by the end of 2024.

Pure Storage’s Ethernet-based storage solution simplifies the integration and deployment of large scale training and inference and helps democratize AI to enterprises that are eager to accelerate their AI initiatives. Pure’s industry-leading energy efficiency, consuming up to 85% less energy than alternative all-flash storage solutions, can help customers overcome data center power constraints in large AI clusters.

“Enterprises adopting AI need storage performance and flexibility as they architect their infrastructure to address AI workloads at scale. Pure Storage’s certification with the NVIDIA DGX and OVX platforms helps deliver highly-performant solutions for customers at every stage of their AI journey.”  – Charlie Boyle, Vice President of DGX Platform, NVIDIA

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – June 18, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Veritas Technologies, the leader in secure multi-cloud data management, today announced greater choice and flexibility for customers requiring data compliance solutions. Veritas Data Insight, which allows organizations to assess and mitigate unstructured and sensitive data compliance and cyber resilience risks, is now available in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) consumption model.

Dark data, which is data with unknown value, makes up roughly 52% of the average organization’s unstructured data estate. In addition to containing redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT) data that costs organizations millions of dollars in unnecessary storage, such data may also contain sensitive information posing significant regulatory compliance and cyber resilience risks.

Veritas Data Insight offers in-depth data visibility, context and analysis across multi-cloud infrastructures to help resolve the cost, compliance and security risks associated with unstructured, dark and sensitive data. It also plays a key role in helping organizations respond to cyberthreats such as ransomware by highlighting security weaknesses before an attack, providing early warning during an attack and ensuring decision makers are armed with important insights about the data that may have been compromised after an attack.

Now, organizations can consume Veritas Data Insight from the cloud as a multi-tenant, Veritas-managed SaaS application. This option enables simplified onboarding; automatic updates, including new content sources; and greater scalability.

Soniya Bopache, vice president and general manager of data compliance and governance at Veritas, said: “Most organizations have massive collections of data they know nothing about. These often contain sensitive data they’re not properly managing, valuable data they’re not using and ROT data they don’t need. Veritas Data Insight in the cloud helps resolve the challenges of unstructured, dark and sensitive data without adding more complexity to an organization’s technology stack.”

Additional enhancements in the latest release of Veritas Data Insight—both on-premises and in the cloud—are designed to increase the product’s performance across all its core data compliance, governance and cyber resilience functions. These performance enhancements include:

  • Efficiency – Data indexing now requires up to 50% less disk space.
  • Speed – Expedited data classification better focuses on content that is relevant.
  • Coverage – Improved indexing and targeted classification results in more comprehensive compliance.

Juan Orlandini, chief technology officer, North America at Insight Enterprises, said: “Veritas Data Insight is key to helping our clients gain critical knowledge about their data to identify security threats, address privacy compliance and enable lifecycle management. With SaaS deployment, more efficient indexing and faster classification, it becomes even more compelling.”

Veritas Data Insight is available as part of all three Veritas data compliance and governance service offerings—Information GovernanceeDiscovery and Surveillance—which make it easy for customers to find the right combination of Veritas capabilities to meet their specific needs. It can also be paired with Veritas NetBackup Flex Scale and Veritas Alta Recovery Vault to create the ultimate solution for cyber resilience with scale-out data protection, data and asset intelligence and SaaS-based data isolation.

About Veritas
Veritas Technologies is the leader in secure multi-cloud data management. More than 80,000 customers—including 91% of the Fortune 100—rely on Veritas to help ensure the protection, recoverability and compliance of their data. Veritas has a reputation for reliability at scale, which delivers the resilience its customers need against the disruptions threatened by cyberattacks, like ransomware. No other vendor is able to match Veritas’ ability to execute, with support for 800+ data sources, 100+ operating systems and 1,400+ storage targets through a single, unified approach. Powered by Cloud Scale Technology, Veritas is delivering today on its strategy for Autonomous Data Management that reduces operational overhead while delivering greater value.
