Users benefit from cost-effective, scalable, and simple storage and backup capabilities with immutability for cloud-native applications in Kubernetes

BOSTON, MA – December 8, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that it has partnered with Kasten by Veeam®, the market leader for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, to provide enterprise operations teams with an easy-to-use, scalable, and secure system for backup/restore, disaster recovery, and application mobility for Kubernetes. Purpose-built for Kubernetes, Kasten K10 data management platform combined with Wasabi’s hot cloud storage enables users to access data in milliseconds with industry-leading data protection and immutability against accidental or malicious backup corruption.

As more enterprises adopt microservice architecture and containers, Kubernetes has become the fastest-growing infrastructure software providing high availability and scalability of application services. However, these benefits do not extend to customer data, and therefore data and application protection are a critical priority for Kubernetes workloads as enterprises must extract data from the Kubernetes environment and store it securely. Whether accidental or malicious, preventing catastrophic data loss is increasingly challenging, especially when defending against ransomware attacks, mitigating the impact of human error or ensuring the chain of custody and regulatory compliance of data.

Now with Wasabi’s affordable, fast, and reliable hot cloud storage on-demand, Kasten customers can treat their data as hot data, shortening upload windows and quickly accessing their data for faster restore times. Wasabi is 80% less expensive than traditional cloud providers, and there are no fees for egress or API requests.

“As Kubernetes becomes the de facto application system for enterprises everywhere, data storage, backup and protection have never been more important,” said David Boland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at Wasabi. “By partnering with Kasten by Veeam, Kubernetes users everywhere will have instant access to their application data with industry-leading backup and immutability that provides a faster, affordable, more secure, and most importantly simple experience for users.”

Kasten streamlines application protection with the simplicity and portability that IT and Operations teams need to operate cloud-native applications that use multiple data services and are instantiated across multiple clusters, regions or clouds. K10 protects backups with end-to-end encryption and includes S3 Object Lock immutable storage support from Wasabi to add a new level of data protection, preventing malicious attacks like ransomware or accidental operations that can lead to significant data loss or alteration.

“Data protection is a top-of-mind concern for organizations across the globe as with the growth in cyber-attacks like ransomware,” said Gaurav Rishi, VP of Product, Kasten by Veeam. “Our partnership with Wasabi offers a solution with instantly accessible data and object-level immutability to deliver the simplicity, security and affordability our customers need to protect and optimize their Kubernetes investments.”

About Wasabi Technologies:
Wasabi provides simple, predictable and affordable hot cloud storage for businesses all over the world.

Adoption Accelerates as Partners Look to Eliminate Supply Chain Constraints, Accelerate Time to Revenue, and Remove Costly Hardware for Customers through Managed Services Center

SUNNYVALE, Calif. ? December 8, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Druva Inc. today announced that Druva’s new Managed Service Provider (MSP) program, built on Amazon Web Services (AWS), has experienced significant growth following its recent launch. Introduced in June 2021, Druva has tripled its MSP partners within the program as the demand for its resilient, simplified data protection service continues to surge across the global channel ecosystem. In response to this accelerated demand, Druva launched the Managed Services Center, which provides partners with additional resources to run their businesses more strategically.

As more businesses move to the cloud, there is an urgency to adopt new technologies that can improve cyber resiliency, streamline governance, and extract data insights at scale. This demand has created a vast market opportunity for MSPs, with research showing that the global MSP market size is expected to increase to $354.8 billion by 2026¹. However, global supply chain shortages are inflating prices and delaying deliveries as shipments from China to the US alone are taking 83 percent longer to arrive at their final destination compared to September 2019². As a result, partners are seeking alternative solutions which require minimal initial investment, can be rapidly deployed across the globe, and offer the ease of self-service.

Built entirely in the cloud, Druva helps MSPs accelerate time-to-revenue and reduce risk by delivering a more resilient, 100 percent software as a service (SaaS) platform without the burden of infrastructure. Since launching its MSP program and the Managed Service Center, Druva has seen an enormous demand for data protection services that simplify and automate traditionally complex processes. With customer demand rising, Druva’s MSP partners have been able to accelerate protection for SaaS applications, hybrid and cloud workloads, and edge devices. The addition of Druva’s Managed Services Center enables MSPs to seamlessly support new and existing tenants from a single interface, driving more efficiency and better management of all customers by service level agreements (SLAs), service plans, and workloads.

“MSPs are facing a multitude of challenges that are slowing down sales cycles and are increasingly in need of a modern solution that is free of supply chains or costly hardware and management,” said Robert Brower, Senior Vice President of Global Partners and Alliances, Druva. “By harnessing the global reach of AWS infrastructure, we are delivering a solution that relieves these pressures and enables MSPs to drive measurable outcomes with higher margins. The program’s growth since launch is a testament to how seamless the process has become, and with Druva’s Managed Services Center at the core of our program, MSPs are able to access best-of-breed resiliency, flexibility, and scale-on-demand.”

The Druva Data Resiliency Cloud empowers MSPs to effectively deliver on the potential of the cloud with an industry-leading solution that has helped advance thousands of organizations’ cyber, data, and operational resilience without any hardware, software, or associated complexity. Druva’s SaaS-based delivery model enables a self-service user experience that allows partners to accelerate customer deployments, meet new tenant workloads, and efficiently scale customer needs up or down. As further recognition, Druva’s program has been recognized as a finalist in the MSP/MSSP Platform category by the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards, which highlights cutting-edge, purpose-built products and services for solution providers.

“The cloud allows partners and customers alike access to their data globally, adapting to the changing needs of business with a high degree of flexibility to scale with a pay-as-you-go model,” said Sabina Joseph, General Manager, Americas Technology Partners, AWS. “MSPs can easily deploy Druva, a trusted data resiliency solution built on AWS, and help customers protect data from malicious attacks, maintain compliance, and accelerate cloud transformations, without impacting costs or agility.”

“The Druva MSP program provides us with the tools to grow top-line revenue and ensure customer success through a simplified experience,” said Nicholas Barron, Chief Technology Officer, Harbor Solutions, a leading UK MSP. “Because Druva is built on AWS, we are confident our customers’ data is always safe, secure and available. With no infrastructure required, we no longer need to focus on data centers, servers or hardware and storage shipments in order to set up data protection solutions for our customers. Now, everyone in our organization, from sales to support, can focus on delivering more value to our customers.”

The Druva Managed Services Center is available now to MSPs in North America and EMEA.

Driven by massive data growth and ransomware threats public sector organizations like Chicago’s Field Museum trust Nasuni to manage and protect their critical information

BOSTON, MA – December 08, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Nasuni Corporation, a leading provider of cloud file storage, today announced strong growth within the state, local and education (SLED) markets with a 43% increase in data under management over the past 12 months. This growth across cities, counties, states and schools is being driven by accelerated cloud migrations, the growing need for advanced file sharing capabilities and the ability to recover quickly from cyber threats like ransomware.

Since the pandemic began, governments and universities have needed to support their workforces remotely. Data from the Center for Digital Government revealed that more than half of U.S. cities and counties planned to adopt or expand hybrid and multi-cloud usage in 2021, supporting Nasuni’s increased demand from customers within this sector. Since expanding into the public sector market Nasuni has experienced consistent revenue growth each quarter and a perfect customer retention rate of 100% from within the sector. Users benefit from file share access from anywhere, simplified management, automatic data protection with nearly instantaneous restoration and global file collaboration capabilities, in addition to significant cost savings over their legacy on-premises file storage infrastructures.

For example, the City of Dothan is Alabama’s eighth largest municipality and home to more than 67,000 people. Dothan migrated a specific workflow to AWS for increased saving and uses Nasuni to allow file sharing worldwide. “It’s dependability and auditing capabilities are very important to us to be able to maintain a chain of custody of the information,” said Davis Hart, senior systems analyst at the City of Dothan. “Its file-sharing capabilities via a web portal are huge to us.”

The public sector and educational institutions that Nasuni supports operate an average of eight locations, with the largest maintaining 42 sites that Nasuni unifies under a single file system in cloud object storage, while providing high-performance cached access to file shares at each site.

The Field Museum in Chicago is both a major public exhibit space and a nonprofit scientific research institution. With Nasuni, it achieved a 60% reduction in infrastructure costs, as well as vastly improved data protection. “We have the peace of mind of knowing that we can recover data at any point, at any time, in a way that we couldn’t before,” said Rob Zschernitz, chief technology officer at The Field Museum.

Located in Vermont, Saint Michael’s College is a selective college for the study of liberal arts and sciences. Most of the college’s IT resources directly support the needs of 3,200 staff members and students. When the school’s data volumes began to overwhelm their backup systems and users needing restored files were left waiting for days, they selected Nasuni to eliminate those issues. “Our previous file backup system was relatively complex and had a lot of moving parts to it – we weren’t comfortable with the quality of backups we were getting and it was becoming increasingly difficult to manage,” said Shawn Umansky, network engineer at Saint Michael’s College. “We needed a system that was more streamlined, stable and reliable.”

To further help public sector and higher education organizations in the ongoing fight against ransomware, last month Nasuni, along with AWS announced three Ransomware “First Aid Kits” for Public Sector Files in AWS. These limited-time, bundled offerings are designed to deliver extremely fast file recovery in the event of a ransomware attack, as well as built-in backup and disaster recovery, all at a reduced price. In the event of a local or regional disaster, accidental file deletion or cyber-attack, Nasuni can help organizations quickly restore access to affected file data in just minutes. Nasuni is an Advanced Technology Partner for AWS in the public sector industry.

To learn more about how Nasuni helps the public sector, higher educational institutions and global enterprises address file sharing and data protection needs with a cloud-based solution, please read our case studies.

Lessons Learned from Two Real World Ransomware Attacks

BOSTON, MA – Dec. 07, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, today announced it will be presenting alongside its customer TenCate Protective Fabrics at the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2021, Americas. Focusing on TenCate’s experience of two ransomware attacks—one before Zerto and one in which Zerto protected the business against the consequences of the attack—the discussion will also detail best practices for ransomware prevention, preparation, and the role of Zerto in delivering resilience.

WHO: Jayme Williams, senior systems engineer at TenCate Protective Fabrics, will share his experience of two ransomware attacks, illustrating how with Zerto’s continuous data protection (CDP) deployed he was able to recover from the second attack in seconds with virtually no data loss. Joined by Caroline Seymour, VP, product marketing at Zerto, their presentation will also explain why disaster recovery must be part of any cyber resilience strategy in the context of traditional recovery methods that are unfit for purpose and don’t help mitigate the risk of data loss.

WHAT: A presentation by Zerto and TenCate, a multinational textiles company based in the Netherlands, which has experienced ransomware attacks twice. The first attack occurred prior to implementing Zerto and the second one after the Zerto implementation. Its experience recovering from ransomware using backups the first time versus Zerto the second time reveals the power of how Zerto enabled TenCate to recover quickly.

WHEN: Wednesday, December 8, 2021 at 2:15 p.m. to 2:35 p.m. ET

WHERE: The Virtual Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference 2021, Americas — https://www.gartner.com/en/conferences/na/infrastructure-operations-cloud-us/agenda/day

“Zerto enabled us to defend our business from the consequences and costs of ransomware,” said Williams. “We didn’t have to think about paying a ransom or spending weeks recovering and rebuilding from an attack. Zerto was able to protect our systems with minimal data loss and downtime by allowing us to rewind and recover data with granularity from any point in time—and we were able to do so within seconds of the disruptive event.”

About Zerto
Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, empowers customers to run an always-on business by simplifying the protection, recovery, and mobility of on-premises and cloud applications. Zerto’s cloud data management and protection platform eliminates the risks and complexity of modernization and cloud adoption across private, public, and hybrid deployments.

Cybercriminals are using MSPs’ own internal tools against them; ransomware damage to exceed $20 billion by end of year — as per the Acronis Cyberthreats Report 2022

DUBAI, UAE – December 8, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today starts its #CyberFit Summit Dubai — the third stop in the Acronis World Tour, an ongoing industry event series dedicated to bringing cyber protection to businesses everywhere. Marking the start of the event, the company has released its annual Acronis Cyberthreats Report 2022, an in-depth review of cybersecurity trends and threats worldwide. The report warns that managed service providers (MSPs) are particularly at risk — having more of their own management tools, such as PSA or RMM, used against them by cybercriminals, and thus are becoming increasingly vulnerable to supply chain attacks.

Supply-chain attacks on MSPs are particularly devastating, since attackers gain access to both their business and clients — as seen in the SolarWinds breach last year and the Kaseya VSA attack earlier in 2021, one successful attack means crippling hundreds or thousands of SMBs. The report also shows that during the second half of 2021, only 20% of companies reported not having been attacked — as opposed to 32% last year — indicating that attacks are increasing in frequency across the board.

“The cybercrime industry is a well-oiled machine, using cloud and machine intelligence to scale and automate their operations. While the threat landscape continues to grow, we see that the main attack vectors stay the same — and they still work,” says Candid Wuest, Acronis VP of Cyber Protection Research. “While the attack surface is growing and 2022 will surely bring us surprises, cyber protection automation remains the only path to greater security, reduced risks, lower costs, and improved efficiency.”

Key trends of 2021 — and predictions for 2022

Beyond the growing efficiency of cybercriminals and the impact on MSPs and small businesses, the Acronis Cyberthreats Report 2022 shows:

  • Phishing remains the main attack vector. 94% of malware gets delivered by email — using social engineering techniques to trick users into opening malicious attachments or links, phishing has been topping the charts even before the pandemic. It still continues to grow rapidly: just this year, Acronis reported blocking 23% more phishing emails and 40% more malware emails in Q3, as compared with Q2 of the same year.
  • Phishing actors develop new tricks, move to messengers. Now targeting OAuth and multifactor authentication tools (MFA), these new tricks allow criminals to take over accounts. To bypass common anti-phishing tools, they will use text messages, Slack, Teams chats and other tools for attacks such as business email compromise (BEC). One recent example of such an attack was the infamous hijacking of the FBI’s own email service, which was compromised and started sending spam emails in November 2021.
  • Ransomware still the #1 threat — to big companies and SMBs alike. High-value targets include the public sector, healthcare, manufacturing, and other critical organizations. But despite some recent arrests, ransomware continues to be one of the most profitable cyberattacks these days. Acronis predicts ransomware damages will exceed $20 billion before the end of 2021.
  • Cryptocurrency among the attackers’ favorite playing cards. Infostealers and malware that swaps digital wallet addresses are the reality today. We can expect more such attacks waged directly against smart contracts in 2022 — attacking the programs at the heart of cryptocurrencies. Attacks against Web 3.0 apps will also occur more frequently, and new and increasingly sophisticated attacks, such as flash loan attacks, will allow attackers to drain millions of dollars from cryptocurrency pools.

Growing need for cyber protection in MEA: two data centers opening
Overall, in terms of cybersecurity, this year was the worst on record; not just for many organizations, but for many countries as well — including the UAE, a country now pushing to fight the global “cyber pandemic.” And despite their best effort, as Acronis’ own recent survey shows, 25% of people in UAE still do not use any cyber protection tools.

Malware attacks remain a global phenomenon, and every country has to fight it. Reviewing the normalized malware detection in our research, we saw countries like Taiwan, Singapore, China, and Brazil with over a 50% detection rate. However, the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region also ranks fairly high on the list, with the UAE at 38%; South Africa at 36%; and Saudi Arabia at 29%.

We see similar statistics for blocked ransomware attacks: the UAE ranked 33rd globally, responsible for 0.3% of all global detections — a 63% increase from October 2021 — while South Africa ranked 30th globally, responsible for 0.4% of all detections — a 64% increase from October 2021.

While ransomware attacks are clearly on the rise in MEA, the high malware detection rates could mean that countries are paying more attention to cyber protection by upgrading their detection capabilities.

The Acronis #CyberFit Summit taking place as a hybrid event in Dubai, UAE on December 8th?9th aims to help local organizations and citizens build up their cyber defenses. The platform engages world-class cybersecurity and industry experts, and provides an in-depth look at how companies can enhance their IT infrastructure capabilities — with a particular focus on MSPs, the backbone of channel business.

Acronis is also using this platform to pre-announce the opening of two data centers in Africa — Nigeria and South Africa — opening in Q2 2022, helping to fulfill the company’s ongoing plan of building 110 data centers worldwide within two years.

Acronis Cyberthreats Report 2022
The Acronis Cyberthreats Report 2022 is based on examining attack and threat data collected by the company’s global network of Acronis CPOCs, which monitor and research cyberthreats 24/7. Malware data was collected by more than 650,000 unique endpoints around the world running Acronis Cyber Protect — either as a client of an MSP using the solution or a business running the solution. The end-of-year update covers attacks targeting endpoints detected between July and November 2021.

The full report provides in-depth insights into the top cybersecurity and threat trends the CPOCs observed during the second half of 2021; a review of malware families and related statistics; a deep dive into ransomware’s most dangerous groups; the vulnerabilities that contribute to successful attacks; and Acronis’ security recommendations for 2022 and beyond. Check out the findings for the first half of 2021 in our Acronis Cyberthreats Report: Mid-year 2021 — https://dl.acronis.com/u/rc/White-Paper-Acronis-Cyber-Protect-Cloud-Cyberthreats-Report-Mid-year-2021-EN-US.pdf

The Enterprise File Fabric and PoINT Storage Manager: Flexible Data Access and Compliance in Hybrid Infrastructures

Siegen, Germany and London, UK – 7th December 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — PoINT Software & Systems and Storage Made Easy provide a powerful and flexible solution for data management in hybrid storage environments. This enables companies to meet the challenges of data growth, compliance and remote work.

The Enterprise File Fabric from Storage Made Easy is a data management solution for hybrid storage infrastructures and multi-cloud environments. Users can search, access, and share file and object storage through a global file system. Search and access are independent of the location of the data within the storage environment, and also independent of the user’s location and device.

In combination with the tiering and archiving software PoINT Storage Manager, a comprehensive and powerful solution for data and storage management in hybrid infrastructures is created. The solution provides automated file tiering and archiving according to previously created rules. Thus, the storage location corresponding to its usage, age, etc. is chosen for the data. Users’ familiar workflows are preserved, while storage systems are used much more efficiently.

The functional scope of the joint solution of Storage Made Easy and PoINT Software & Systems includes, among others, an active archive. The archiving of data is policy-based and automated. During its entire prescribed retention period the archived data is protected against modification and deletion in a legally compliant manner. Users also access the archived data transparently via the Enterprise File Fabric, regardless of whether the data is stored on a local file server or in the cloud.

“For our customers, the comprehensive search function and seamless data access via the Enterprise File Fabric platform open up many new application possibilities for PoINT Storage Manager,” says Sebastian Klee, CMO at PoINT Software & Systems. Achim F. von Montigny, Sales Director Europe at Storage Made Easy adds: “The tiering and archiving features of PoINT Storage Manager improve the use of the flexible storage architecture within the Enterprise File Fabric and significantly facilitate the integration of different cloud solutions.”

F-Secure Armory Drive combines protection for encryption keys, data, and the device’s firmware into a user-friendly portable storage solution

Helsinki, Finland – December 07, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Portable storage solutions need to balance accessibility and security: They need to be simple to use and compact enough for the owners to carry around, but secure enough to prevent other people from simply picking it up and accessing its contents. F-Secure Armory Drive aims to strike this balance by providing an encrypted storage solution that runs on the USB armory – the world’s smallest secure-by-design computer.


Video: F Secure Armory Drive

The solution consists of two components: Firmware for the USB armory, and an iOS app. The firmware (a free download for current USB armory owners) adds F-Secure Armory Drive functionality to the USB armory. The iOS app turns users’ iPhones into an authentication mechanism for data contained on microSD cards encrypted by the solution.

Access to the device owner’s iPhone and paired USB armory are required to access the contents protected by the system. These two components work together to prevent unauthorized access to data, even if the microSD card or USB armory is lost, or stolen by an experienced attacker.

The system also prevents exposing the solution’s encryption keys to laptops or desktops, which helps protect that information from untrusted or compromised computers.

“The USB armory has been embraced by companies, security professionals, and others with the technical expertise and need for a secure computing platform. However, everyone needs secure storage and providing it is well within the USB armory’s capabilities. F-Secure Armory Drive makes those capabilities accessible to anyone looking for secure, portable, limitless storage,” said F-Secure Head of Hardware Security Andrea Barisani, whose team designed the USB armory and F-Secure Armory Drive.

While other secure USB drives include protection for data and encryption keys, the introduction of measures to secure the system’s firmware is one of F-Secure Armory Drive’s more unique strengths. Barisani and his team achieved this by combining the USB armory’s Secure Boot capabilities with a Google transparency framework* – one of the first successful implementations of this framework for binary transparency.

Thanks to this innovation, any firmware update pushed to the USB armory undergoes additional authentication by both the desktop installer as well as the device itself. The additional authentication protects the system from compromise via a malicious update – a common tactic in supply chain attacks.

“F-Secure’s adoption of Firmware Transparency sets a great example of how device manufacturers can proactively help mitigate supply chain risks,” said Ryan Hurst, Product Manager, Google.

In addition to the USB armory’s existing features, F-Secure Armory Drive’s capabilities and benefits include:

  • Control multiple units from a single mobile device
  • Runs on any desktop or laptop without additional drivers or software
  • Combination of multifactor authentication and full-disk encryption protects data on lost or stolen units
  • Encrypt (AES) an unlimited number of microSD cards, providing unrestricted secure storage capability through one device
  • Out-of-band unlock with authenticated, encrypted Bluetooth session prevents exposure of encryption keys, even to compromised or untrusted computers

Now organizations can more accurately identify the last known clean copy of data to prevent reinfection and accelerate recovery

PALO ALTO, CA – December 7, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security CompanyTM, today announced new enhancements to its cyber resilience solutions to help better equip customers in the fight against ransomware. With this latest release, organizations can improve ransomware preparedness, respond with more intelligent and integrated tools, and recover from attacks faster. Now with simple UI support and API Driven integrations, including Palo Alto Networks’ Cortex XSOAR, the market-leading extended security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform, security operations teams can recover from attacks faster and reduce the chance of reinfection.

According to IDC, more than one third of organizations worldwide have experienced a ransomware attack or breach that blocked access to systems or data in the previous 12 months. Of these attacks, only 13 percent of organizations attacked or breached reported not paying a ransom.*

“Recently, organizations have been targeted more frequently by highly sophisticated cyber attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in legacy backup products, forcing a ransomware payment,” said Dan Rogers, President of Rubrik. “With these new advancements, IT and security teams are able to better protect their enterprise, cloud, and SaaS environments and more quickly recover from cyber attacks without paying the ransom.”

Typically in the event of a cyberattack, organizations have been forced to scan their production systems for malware, which can be difficult, time consuming, and inaccurate. Now with Rubrik threat hunting, organizations can directly scan their backups for indicators of compromise, including ransomware. With this added intelligence, organizations can more accurately identify the last known clean copy of data in order to prevent reinfection during and after recovery. Additionally, Rubrik’s new threat hunting capabilities integrate with Cortex XSOAR threat hunting playbooks for easy identification of compromised data within backup snapshots during post-incident reviews and for simplified reporting to external regulatory agencies.

“As the rate and complexity of managing ransomware attacks continues to increase, companies need to leverage automated workflows to recover quickly without paying the ransom,” said Rishi Bhargava, Vice President of Product Strategy for Cortex at Palo Alto Networks. “Rubrik’s integration with Cortex XSOAR enables our joint customers to benefit from prebuilt threat-hunting playbooks to quickly identify new threat activity, recover from ransomware attacks faster, and prevent reinfection from happening during or after the recovery process.”

Rubrik’s latest release delivers new capabilities across Data Security, Cloud and SaaS, and Data Protection

New Data Security Capabilities
As legacy backup vendors struggle to meet the needs of ransomware protection and recovery, Rubrik continues to make its Zero Trust Data Security platform more robust. For example, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) can be globally enforced across the entire platform to help ensure that unauthorized users do not gain access to data.

Additionally, Rubrik is expanding its Sensitive Data Discovery service to roughly 60 pre-defined analyzers that can automatically identify and classify more data types, including certain types of Personal Identifiable Information (PII). The ability to discover sensitive business and customer information across environments without production impact can help reduce data risk, including assessing potential damage from an exfiltration attack.

New Cloud and SaaS Capabilities
Without Zero Trust Data Security, enterprise productivity tools and business applications in cloud and SaaS environments can be highly vulnerable as well. Rubrik continues to enhance cloud data protection with the following advancements:

  • Protection for Azure SQL with Fully-Managed SaaS Support: Expanded Rubrik coverage in Azure cloud ensures Azure SQL can be secured alongside other cloud and on-prem workloads for unified visibility and streamlined policy management.
  • Reduced Blast Radius with Archives for AWS S3: In the event of an AWS production account being compromised by ransomware, cloud data can be recovered through a bunkered account with new credentials. To maintain security, the new account has limited access and deletion rights.
  • Optimized Cloud Economics: Low-cost daily snapshots for Azure VMs and AWS EC2 instances can save organizations up to 40%.
  • Enterprise-Scale Protection for Microsoft 365: With Rubrik protection for up to 100,000 users, Rubrik customers can recover more application data with restores for Microsoft Exchange contacts and calendars, SharePoint lists and Teams channel posts.

New Data Protection Capabilities
Rubrik’s data protection begins with a logical air gap to keep data online for rapid recovery while incorporating proprietary protocols so that attackers cannot discover customers’ data. Additionally, Rubrik’s append-only file system keeps data in an immutable state.

With this latest release, Rubrik is introducing: 

  • Expanded Protection for SAP Databases: Customers can now protect SAP HANA on IBM Power Systems, extending the ability to streamline protection and reduce the need for manual scripting and job scheduling across on-premises and the cloud.
  • Faster Recovery of Oracle and SQL: Customers with large Microsoft SQL or Oracle databases that have a large number of files will now be able to recover even faster. SQL customers can see up to 3 times improvement in restores and Oracle customers can see up to 25 percent improvement for database recoveries.
  • Enhanced Data Protection with Quicker Backups for Nutanix AHV: Now for Nutanix AHV, users can select individual disks to exclude from their backup to quickly protect only the critical and needed pieces, which frees up time and storage. Also to optimize network bandwidth and provide an extra security layer, the entire Nutanix AHV backup connectivity can be sent over a separate and isolated iSCSI Data Services network.

Customers Validate Rubrik’s Cyber Resilience Solutions

  • Rubrik is further distinguishing themselves as the leader in Zero Trust Data Security,” said Pankaj Govil, Executive Director, Global Storage Infrastructure of Estée Lauder. “With these new ransomware protection capabilities, it’s clear that they are prioritizing customers’ data security and ability to quickly recover after an attack.”
  • Ransomware is top of mind for every IT and security leader today,” said Ruddy Cordero, Senior Director, Infrastructure & Operations of Sesame Workshop. “With Rubrik’s latest ransomware recovery and cyber threat hunting capabilities, they’re continuing to instill confidence among customers that their data is recoverable and secure in the event of a cyber attack.”
  • The reality is, no business is immune from ransomware,” said Rama Arumugam, IT Manager of Plymouth Poultry. “For this reason, it’s more important than ever to proactively prepare for a cyberattack and ensure you have the right data security solutions in place to quickly recover after an attack, and also minimize the chance of re-infection. With Rubrik’s latest product release, they continue to make critical advancements to their ransomware recovery solutions to give customers the ultimate peace of mind.

Rubrik’s latest release is expected to become available in the coming months through Rubrik’s expansive global partner network. The integration with Cortex XSOAR that includes prebuilt security orchestration playbooks for threat hunting and ransomware will also be available through the Cortex XSOAR Marketplace.

New Backup and Recovery Tool Will Be Bundled With Existing Rewind Data Recovery Products

OTTAWA, ON – Dec. 07, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today Rewind launched Backups for Microsoft 365, an automated backup and data recovery tool that protects data created in Microsoft’s suite of online productivity apps. The addition of Backups for Microsoft 365, is another step forward in Rewind’s journey to backing up the entire cloud and becoming the leading data recovery provider for SaaS solutions.

“We think that most companies will be a SaaS company or built with these tools in the next 10 years; businesses will increasingly rely on a range of SaaS applications to run day-to-day operations,” said Mike Potter, CEO and co-founder of Rewind. “As these SaaS applications become the cornerstone of business operations, the ability to protect and recover vital data in case of an accident or cyberattack is essential.”

Backups for Microsoft 365 protects four critical applications within the popular SaaS tool:

  • Exchange: The emails and calendars of users
  • SharePoint: The sites created by users to share documents with colleagues, partners and customers
  • OneDrive for Business: Online file storage that can be accessed from anywhere
  • Groups & Teams: All group chats and online meetings

The majority of SaaS tools, including Microsoft 365, are governed by the Shared Responsibility Model of cloud computing. SaaS applications can restore data in the event of platform-wide issues. However, they can’t automatically restore user-level data if it is deleted or compromised. This limitation is specifically mentioned in Microsoft’s Service Agreement. Permanent data loss in SaaS can be caused by human error, cyber attacks, and third-party integrations. Rewind’s own research has shown that over 40 percent of SaaS users have permanently lost data.

This announcement comes after Rewind successfully raised a USD $65 million Series B round of financing in September, led by New York-based global private equity and venture capital firm Insight Partners. Rewind also recently completed its SOC 2 Type 1 certification last month. Rewind currently provides backup and restoration software for BigCommerce, GitHub, QuickBooks Online, Shopify, Shopify Plus, and Trello, and plans to launch Backups for Jira in 2022. Existing Rewind customers, who bundle Microsoft 365 with their current services, will receive a discount on this new product.

About Rewind
Since 2015, Rewind has been on a mission to help businesses protect their SaaS and cloud data. Today, over 100,000 customers in more than 100 countries trust Rewind’s top-reviewed apps and support to ensure their software-as-a-service applications run uninterrupted. The Rewind platform enables companies to back up, restore, and copy the critical data that drives their business.

Gives cybersecurity teams ability to monitor unauthorized file sharing across cloud and email systems, speeds response to insider risk events

Minneapolis, MN — Dec 6, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Code42, the Insider Risk Management leader, today announced the FedRAMP Authorized Code42® Incydr™ Gov solution has added new data exfiltration detectors for cloud and email systems. In addition to detecting data exfiltration from endpoints, now security teams can detect, investigate and respond to insider risk activities, including monitoring unauthorized file movement, spillage and sharing from and within cloud and email systems. The new data exfiltration detectors give security teams full visibility when files are shared, downloaded, or emailed to untrusted destinations on OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, Office 365 and Gmail, whether those insider risk events take place on a computer, in the cloud or over email.

With the growing adoption of cloud and use of collaboration tools across federal agencies, there are exponentially more ways for insiders to exfiltrate data. What’s more, many federal agencies’ insider risk programs are built around traditional tools like data loss prevention (DLP) products that weren’t designed to handle the modern reality of ultra-portable data and widespread cloud-based collaboration and file sharing. With research indicating that on average, every employee commits 13 data exposure events every day, federal organizations need clearer visibility to data spillage and prioritization of the riskiest file events happening both on and off their networks.

“Our research shows that nearly three-quarters (71%) of security teams lack complete visibility to sensitive data movement, according to IT security leaders,” said Jason Greenwood, Code42 Vice President, Federal. “Our new data exfiltration detectors help federal agencies execute against Zero Trust data security strategies, give crucial visibility into data that is being mishandled or shared from agency systems, and further protect some of the most sensitive information in the country against Insider Risk.”

Mitigating Data Exfiltration Across Federal Cloud and Email Systems
With the cloud and email data exfiltration detectors now available for purchase with Incydr Gov, federal agency security teams can now see when email attachments from federal email systems are sent to untrusted recipients, files are shared to untrusted locations, and links are shared too broadly from federal cloud storage systems.

Incydr Gov’s new capabilities further protect federal agencies against Insider Risk by allowing security teams to:

  • Employ Zero Trust data security strategies
  • Gain visibility into file exfiltration and spillage
  • Detect when files are shared with untrusted users without installation or management of proxies
  • Avoid alert fatigue stemming from false positive Insider Risk notifications
  • Eliminate manual investigation time
  • Quickly trigger response controls due to fast, accurate detection of unsanctioned activity

Availability: The new data exfiltration detectors for cloud and email systems are currently available to new and existing Incydr Gov customers as part of the Code42 Incydr Gov product in the FedRAMP Marketplace.

About the Code42 Incydr Gov Product
The Code42 Incydr Gov product is a FedRAMP Authorized Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that manages insider risk by protecting agencies’ critical data, strategic files and intellectual property from exposure, spillage and exfiltration risk created by employee and contractor departures and actions, bolsters litigation against data theft and secures remote and collaborative work for employees and contractors. The Code42 Incydr Gov product allows security teams to effectively mitigate data exposure risks without disrupting users’ legitimate collaboration as well as illuminates an organization’s data security blind spots by showing activities that fly under the radar of other security technologies.

About Code42
Code42 is the leader in insider risk detection and response. Native to the cloud, Code42 rapidly detects data loss, leak, theft and sabotage as well as speeds incident response – all without lengthy deployments, complex policy management or blocking employee productivity.

Komprise embraces new AWS innovations to accelerate file migrations to the cloud and maximize the use of cloud-native data analytics services

CAMPBELL, Calif. – Dec. 07, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Komprise, a leader in analytics-driven data management, today announced expanded support for new Amazon Web Services (AWS) file services to accelerate petabyte-scale file data migrations to the cloud, while enabling the use of native AWS data analytics and machine learning (ML) services to maximize data value.

Komprise, an AWS Advanced Technology Partner which recently achieved AWS Migration Competency, is at the forefront of leveraging new AWS innovations:

  • Data replication, migration, and file tiering with Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAPKomprise customers can now easily leverage the new fully managed AWS service built on NetApp’s popular ONTAP filesystem. Komprise enables cloud replication and cloud data migration from any network-attached storage (NAS) to Amazon FSx for NetApp ONTAP. Furthermore, Komprise tiers at the file level, not block, to shrink not just storage but also backup and disaster recovery (DR) costs on FSx. Komprise Transparent Move Technology enables user to access the tiered files both from Amazon FSx and natively on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3).
  • Simplify large data transfers via AWS Snowball. Komprise brings an efficient, automated migration workflow to AWS Snowball for organizations that have petabytes of file or object data which must be divided among multiple Snowball units and shipped to an Amazon data center. Simply select your Amazon S3 destination, your source, and associate as many AWS Snowball devices as desired. Komprise does the rest.
  • Support for latest Amazon S3 tier, Amazon S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval. Komprise will support the new Amazon S3 tier and class, Amazon S3 Glacier Instant Retrieval, early next year.
  • Deep Analytics Actions for data pipelines to AWS Artificial Intelligence (AI), ML, and data lakes. Amazon offers a variety of AI and ML services for file data such as Amazon Comprehend for Natural Language Processing and Personal Identifiable Information (PII) Detection. But since files are scattered across multiple Amazon S3 buckets and file storage classes, searching and finding the right data to analyze can be a challenge. Komprise enables intelligent ingestion of files and object data into AWS AI/ML and data lake services by providing a Global File Index so you can search across all your Amazon S3 buckets and file storage. Komprise Deep Analytics Actions policies then systematically ingest just the right data into native AWS AI, ML, and data lake services.

“IT leaders know that getting data to the cloud is just the first step,” said Kumar Goswami, CEO of Komprise. “It’s about how you leverage the flexibility and innovation of the cloud to deliver meaningful long-term benefits to the organization and its customers. Komprise Intelligent Data Management continues to invest in AWS so that our customers not only save on storage but can leverage cloud-native data services and tools to drive revenue-generating insights and better business outcomes.”

TAIPEI – December 7, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Infortrend® Technology, Inc. (TWSE: 2495), the industry-leading enterprise storage provider, modernized IT infrastructure of world’s leading car manufacturer with EonStor GS enterprise unified storage for file storage and server backup application. The solution provided stable performance and data protection, which greatly benefitted to overall productive performance of the company.

World’s leading automaker had a legacy storage system, which was used by employees from different departments and required daily full server backup. IT Department was constantly receiving complaints from employees that the existing File Server didn’t provide fast enough access, especially to large files during peak hours. Full server backup also took long hours, even overlapping with production hours, which negatively affected company’s productivity.

Their System Integrator, IO Datamovers, found EonStor GS is suitable to provide a smooth access to enterprise data, quick backup, and tight data protection. “EonStor GS ideally fits for general applications, such as enterprise file sharing and backup,” advised Frank Lee, Senior Director of Product Planning.

For the regional office and the factory, SI deployed two systems of enterprise unified storage EonStor GS 1000, providing 80 TB total capacity. GS solved the main issue of slow access to files and greatly improved performance of server’s full backup from hours to within minutes. At least 50% faster file access greatly contributes to improving employees’ productivity. For marketing team, it helps with meeting deadlines in creating advertisement materials, for drawing and design professionals — with sharing files on production site/office, while making sure company’s ‘know-how’ is protected with properly structured user authentication and file access rights.

“Infortrend storage dramatically improved file access performance and reduced server backup time to help workers of the famous car manufacturing company increase productivity output and, hence, gain higher profits,” said Kelvin Chuah, Sales Director of IO Datamovers.

LONDON, UK – December 6, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian® today highlighted the role of its HyperStore object storage in helping Cloud4U, a leading Russian cloud service provider, grow its business.

With over 2000 customers and the most Infrastructure-as-a-Service projects in Russia, Cloud4U helps enterprises run their businesses more efficiently and cost-effectively.

To date, Cloud4U has purchased 1.5 PB of HyperStore software and currently has 2.5 billion objects under management. The company expects this to continue to grow significantly as more customers take advantage of the STaaS offering.

“The Cloudian storage solution has been a great addition to our technology portfolio, enabling us to pursue new business opportunities and deliver more value to our customers,” said Vahtang Darsalia, lead engineer, Cloud4U. “And its limitless scalability means we can easily manage increasing data demands as we grow.”

  • CRN Tech Innovator Awards honor the year’s most innovative products and services
  • Arcserve UDP is recognized for being a groundbreaking data protection offering for solution providers

This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories in critical areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and ability to address customer and partner needs.

Finalist Arcserve UDP uniquely combines deep learning server protection, immutable storage, and scalable onsite and offsite business continuity for a multi-layered approach that delivers complete IT resiliency for your virtual, physical, and cloud infrastructures. It is the only product on the market that offers a complete solution to neutralize ransomware attacks in the cloud or on-premises.

Arcserve UDP’s backups are secured by Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, a robust first line of defense against ransomware.

Arcserve is the only vendor promoted to “Challenger” in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software; Arcserve UDP played a vital role in earning this recognition.

DENVER, CO – December 1, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Today, Axcient, a leader in business continuity and cloud migration solutions for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), announced its ‘A’ rating (up 5 points to a 96) from SecurityScorecard verifying the security of its business continuity, disaster recovery, and cloud migration tools. This ‘A’ security rating encompasses controls protecting security across all risk indicators, including Networking, DNS Health, Patching Cadence, Endpoint Security, IP address, Web Application Security, Cubit Score, Hacker Chatter, Information Leak, and Social Engineering.

As a cloud services platform custom-built to secure and support MSPs, Axcient’s security rating enables Partners to both trust and verify the data protections supporting their supply stream. Gathering publicly available information across the Internet, using the SecurityScorecard platform, Axcient can now leverage their best-in-class cybersecurity control environment without compromising the integrity of their internal controls. For more than four months, SecurityScorecard has continuously monitored 10 risk indicators across seven different companies, determining Axcient’s overall cyber health.

“SecurityScorecard’s rating validates the security and reliability of Axcient’s business continuity offerings,” said Joshua Foltz, Chief Security and Compliance Officer at Axcient. “In all that we do—whether product development, process innovation, or security testing—we put the needs of our Partners first. The scorecard proves that our applications and cloud are the most secure, which is a direct reflection of our Partner experience and commitment to offering world-class products.”

SecurityScorecard enables users to view and continuously monitor security ratings and report on the cyberhealth of their ecosystems. In the monitoring process, SecurityScorecard integrated an algorithm called Next-Gen Scoring that deployed a deterministic scoring methodology for Axcient based on a robust statistical framework with a grading system that links issue changes to score fluctuations. Based on threat data, Axcient was graded and benchmarked against six different companies, including Acronis, Datto, StorageCraft, Barracuda, Infrascale, and Veeam. The monitoring and test determined that Axcient was the only company who received an ‘A’ rating.

“This is a competitive differentiator for Axcient,” said Marc Moesse, Vice President of Product at SecurityScorecard. “Nearly 70% of breaches are a result of poor third-party security. With Axcient, MSPs can have confidence that if their customers lose a server, system, website, or data center, the company offers secure technology to recover data to stand up their servers and get back to business.”

Delivers improved experiences and performance for AI workloads on premises and in the cloud

CAMPBELL, Calif. – December 02, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — WekaIO™ (Weka), the data platform for AI, today announced the availability of its latest version of WekaFS™, the fastest storage for data-intensive applications that provides users with enhanced capabilities for cloud deployments and provides new capabilities for both cloud native and virtualized applications on premises.

Weka’s data platform, built on WekaFS, addresses the storage challenges posed by today’s enterprise AI workloads and other high performance applications running on-premises, in the cloud or bursting between platforms. One single data platform offers the simplicity of NAS, the performance of SAN or DAS and the scale of object storage along with accelerating every stage of the data pipeline from data ingestion to cleansing to modeled results.

The additional enhancements now available with version 3.13 of the software provide customers with an even better experience by addressing modern workload demands, fully integrating flash, S3 object storage, cloud and on-premises in a single framework.

Among the top new features in WekaFS 3.13 are:

AWS Autoscaling Groups Thin Provisioning
WekaFS already supports AWS Autoscaling Groups to allow for easy, on the fly, scaling up of the cluster for peak demand periods and auto scaling down when not needed. For cloud-native applications autoscaling delivers the full flexibility of cloud elasticity by allowing resource instances to join or leave the group based on performance or user demand requirements.

New in 3.13, a filesystem can be set as thin provisioned when scaling the number of EC2 instances to be increased or decreased. When scaling up, as the NVMe capacity grows, these filesystems will get more NVMe capacity automatically added to them without additional user intervention. It also allows for shrinking the filesystem as EC2 instances are removed. This simplifies the entire storage management experience in AWS and works with AWS Budgets so you can track and take action on the cost of your dynamic AWS usage.

Remote Backup to Multiple Object Stores
Remote Backup is now generally available in 3.13, supporting the use of multiple S3 object stores. With 3.13, WekaFS’ namespace expansion can now attach to a second object store for snap-to-object data protection and cloud bursting purposes. Now, for example, a daily snapshot can be stored to a local object store, while a monthly snapshot is uploaded to a remote object store. An additional feature of the Remote Backup capability is that Weka can upload just the incremental changes between each remote snapshot even if there are other local snapshots, allowing for both reduced network traffic and reduced capacity needed in the target object store.

High-Performance Clients on VMware Virtual Machines
While customers have previously been able to have virtual applications run against Weka storage in the past, there were some tradeoffs that needed to be made. Now, it is even easier to use Weka FS reliably in a VMware environment. WekaFS 3.13 introduces support for VMXNET Generation 3 (VMXNET3), the most recent virtual network device from VMware. This allows for high-speed WekaFS operation with vMotion (vSphere) in a typical virtual environment. Just load the Weka client onto the guest VM and make sure a VMXNET3 network is attached.

CSI Quota
The Weka CSI Plugin provides the creation and configuration of persistent storage external to Kubernetes. At scale, customers have asked for ways to help control the consumption of storage in the Kubernetes environment. WekaFS 3.13 introduces CSI resource quota management to request volume size and enforce its limits via policies that are integrated in the plugin to allow for tighter controls and reign in unchecked storage consumption.

“Other storage vendors often refer to their latest versions as an ‘upgrade’ or an ‘evolution’ of their products but that simply means that previous iterations were lacking or that the company was slow to recognize needs in the market,” said Liran Zvibel, co-founder and CEO of WekaIO. “Because it was built for NVMe flash and cloud-native, Weka was designed to enable organizations to maximize the full value of their high-powered IT investments – compute, networking and storage. The Weka development model ensures that we continue to improve the product on a rapid basis and the latest features are an extension of our capabilities to better help users unlock the full capabilities of their data centers.”

WekaFS 3.13 is currently available for new and existing customers. Those looking to learn more or leverage the latest features are encouraged to contact one of the company’s Weka Innovation Network partners for additional information.

About WekaIO
WekaIO™ (Weka), the leading data platform for achieving first-to-market results in artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), life sciences research, and high-performance computing (HPC)) is used by eight of the Fortune 50 enterprise organizations to uniquely solve the newest, biggest problems holding back innovation and discovery.
