New Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud integration with the popular Apple Enterprise Management Platform provides greater backup, recovery, and comprehensive cyber protection capabilities to Apple environments

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – July 23, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, today unveiled the latest integration of its award-winning service provider solution, Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, with Jamf, the standard in Apple Enterprise Management (AEM). Marking Acronis’ first Apple integration, it enables managed service providers (MSPs) to easily mass deploy and manage Acronis’ single-agent solution for comprehensive backup, recovery, cybersecurity, and endpoint protection management – ensuring their clients’ macOS machines are safe and secure.

As adoption of Mac devices continues to increase, with more than half (55%) of all small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) reportedly being Mac-friendly, the IT service providers who support these SMBs need a streamlined, proven way to identify, monitor, and secure the data on those machines. With this new integration, MSPs can remotely deploy Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s full range of backup, recovery, and cyber protection services – managing multiple Jamf Pro accounts for multiple instances through a single Acronis account.

“The Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud integration is tailormade for MSPs that manage macOS devices on the Jamf platform, helping to establish our credibility and influence in the world of Apple,” said Jan-Jaap “JJ” Jager, Board Advisor and Chief Revenue Officer at Acronis. “We know we are better together as partners, and we worked cooperatively with Jamf to create an integration that is a natural extension of the Jamf Pro platform and uses workflows that are intuitive to Jamf users. This integration creates significant value for macOS admins.”

Leveraging Acronis’ policy management features to ensure gapless protection, the integration streamlines management for MSPs by using native Jamf tools and workflows to manage, configure, and monitor cyber protection plans and statuses. MSPs can strengthen their backup and cybersecurity offering while simplifying the management by applying sophisticated protection plans through the same interface they use to manage their other service offerings.

“We are thrilled to welcome Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to true Apple Enterprise Management for macOS, with this integration that is now available on the Jamf Marketplace,” said Josh Jagdfeld, senior director of partner marketing at Jamf. “With the steady growth of macOS in the enterprise, organizations must be equipped with the right tools to identify, monitor, and secure these devices. This integration makes it possible to seamlessly and securely work across devices and platforms. We’re so excited to be bringing these two powerful platforms together.”

Deployment of Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud is supported on both Intel and M1 devices, ensuring all machines in a client environment are protected. In addition, Acronis’ cyber protection services are 100% compatible with Jamf’s security capabilities, which prevents potential conflicts and performance issues.

With this integration, MSPs that rely on Jamf gain several advantages:

  • Simple configuration, integrated with standard enrollment: The integration with Jamf Pro leverages standard enrollment and management methods for macOS computers. MSPs can assign a static or dynamic group as the install-queue and the integration will automatically deploy Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud to any workloads in this queue using standard policies.
  • Streamlined management of multiple Jamf Pro accounts: For MSPs that manage multiple Jamf Pro accounts for multiple Jamf Pro instances, this integration lets MSPs use a single Acronis account to manage all their clients ensuring controlled and secure processes by configuring all integration settings in one place.
  • Apply cyber protection plans on a client level: MSPs can use a default protection plan for all macOS computers used by a Jamf Pro account. By choosing the default plan option during configuration, it will be automatically applied when Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud is deployed to macOS computers.
  • Monitor protection statuses: MSPs can now monitor the status of applied protection plans within the Jamf Pro interface. Backup and protection statuses are available in Jamf Pro as Extension Attributes, which can be used in Advanced Searches and Dynamic Groups.
  • Remotely install the protection agent on macOS computers: MSPs can assign any macOS computer to the static or dynamic group they define either manually or as part of their standard enrollment procedure for new machines.

“We’ve been using Acronis Cyber Protect for our customers since its first release. Because of their growing dedication to the Apple ecosystem, Acronis has become an essential partner of Hi-T,” said Daniël Slijper, Co-Founder of Hi-T. “The new integration with Jamf is a great addition to their already MSP-friendly model, allowing us to efficiently keep our customers’ Mac-fleets safely backed up.”

GRAX also awarded Gold for SaaS Startup of the Year

BOSTON, MA – July 22, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — GRAX, the leading SaaS Data Value Platform, announced today it has taken home three medals in the Globee 6th Annual 2021 American Best in Business Awards. The company was awarded Gold and Silver in the Cloud Backup & Storage Solution category for the GRAX Data Value Platform and GRAX History Stream, respectively. It also won Gold for SaaS Startup of the Year for GRAX’s continued growth and successes during the challenging pandemic economy.

GRAX’s Data Value Platform and History Stream were honored as outstanding solutions because they provide the easiest and most effective way to unlock strategic value from SaaS application data. With GRAX, businesses back up, recover, archive, access, and reuse historical cloud app data anywhere, anytime. They store the data in their own secure and scalable AWS cloud data lake, where it’s easily integrated with popular analytics and operational systems, such as QuickSight, PowerBI, Tableau, and Snowflake.

GRAX’s SaaS Startup of the Year Gold win stems from the company’s ability to deliver groundbreaking products, unparalleled customer service, and rewarding corporate culture. As a remote-first company since its founding, GRAX had an advantage throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of having to adjust to a remote work environment, they were able to continue focusing on delivering the high-quality solutions and service they are known for while maintaining a rich culture.

“With more and more companies relying on cloud-based applications for mission-critical operations, the need to easily leverage the historical data stored in those apps has become increasingly urgent. But accessing and reusing that data is typically a very complex, time-consuming, and costly endeavor,” said Joe Gaska, CEO of GRAX. “The GRAX Data Value Platform and History Stream make it simple, fast, and cost-effective. They go far beyond conventional solutions, transforming SaaS app data backup from an insurance policy to a business accelerator. We’re honored to have been recognized by the American Best in Business Awards for the value of our solutions and the success of our company.”

Providing the Right Information to Brokers and Underwriters, Including a Statement of Ransomware Resilience and Other Documentation, May Help Secure Better Terms

SAN JOSE, CA – July 20, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — The latest highly publicized ransomware attack, a cyber-extortion incident against Kaseya, has fueled interest in cyber insurance. In an attempt to reduce their cyber insurance costs, organizations are seeking to demonstrate they have systems in place that provide data resilience.

As a result, Panzura has recently experienced intensified demand from firms looking to better understand their options, according to Glen Shok, vice president of strategic alliances. The company provides secure global file-system solutions for managing, accessing and storing unstructured data in large organizations.

Before sitting down with insurers to review their security practices and coverage options, Shok advises these organizations to prepare a comprehensive risk assessment. “Insurers want both prevention and recovery controls in place, including an analysis of the value and nature of insured data. This has the potential to reduce risk for the business and insurer alike, and result in lower premiums,” said Shok.

He suggests they talk to their technology partners and software vendors to obtain a Statement of Ransomware Resilience (SoRR) which may be considered by insurers when negotiating direct written premium and standalone policies. Panzura offers these statements to customers and works with them when they request additional documentation for insurance purposes.

SoRRhttps://panzura.com/statement-ransomware-resilience/

Cyber insurance prices are driven by the need for risk management and the growing incidence of network intrusions, data theft and ransomware exploits. Fitch Ratings reports that direct cyber insurance premiums increased by over 22 percent in 2020 to approximately $2.7 billion with momentum continuing into this year.

Shok said insurers have responded to the ransomware crisis in various ways including limits on claims payments and tying payments to policyholders’ actions.

“Insurance policies may contain requirements to proactively shield networks and data from infection by deploying solutions for prevention, protection and recovery.  We want our customers to understand the benefits of getting the right information to insurers as they look to secure better terms or modulate rate increases,” remarked Shok.

Panzura’s CloudFS is a global file system that is inherently resilient to ransomware and other malware threats through data immutability. Organizations that use CloudFS to manage, store and access their unstructured data are less likely to need to pay a ransom to regain access to data held in the Panzura file system, even if subjected to an attack. Data stored by CloudFS cannot be encrypted because the system maintains an unalterable, clean data set.

Notes to Editors:

  • Hard market pricing is being used by insurers to offset claims, along with tightened terms and conditions, and more stringent risk selection. Brokers are trying to get more and better information from their clients to underwriters, in order to secure better terms. See “Cyber insurance and the ransomware revolution” (Insider Engage, 24 June 2021).
  • Some insurers are making payments contingent upon policyholders’ actions. They assess whether data has been backed up sufficiently to resume operations within a reasonable period of time, without the payment of a ransom. See “How are cyber insurance companies assessing ransomware risk?” (Dark Reading, 26 May 2021).
  • More than 80 percent of all data at large organizations is unstructured. It is more difficult to store, analyze and access than other types of data. This includes sensitive and highly regulated healthcare and financial data, and petabyte-size enterprise files. See “Structured vs. unstructured data” (Datamation, 21 May 2021).

About Panzura
Panzura replaces legacy storage with a modern approach to unstructured data, empowering organizations with a high performance, high intelligence environment, globally. Companies all around the world in the sports, healthcare, financial services, media and entertainment, gaming, and architectural, engineering and construction industries, as well as government agencies use Panzura to manage hundreds of petabytes of data in the cloud.

Crossinx, a software company in Frankfurt, Germany, protects Microsoft Hyper-V VMs and physical machines with NAKIVO Backup & Replication and saves time on IT administration

Sparks, NV – July 20, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — NAKIVO Inc., a fast-growing software company for protecting physical, virtualized, and cloud environments, has announced today that Crossinx has selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication to protect their environment.

Crossinx is a fintech company and the leading German service provider for financial business collaboration. The company provides digitalization for financial and business processes for more than 350,000 companies. Based on their own network, Crossinx offers flexible and scalable solutions for e-invoicing, EDI, and supply chain finance. Customers and their business partners use Crossinx services in more than 50 countries worldwide – regardless of existing IT infrastructure and company size.

Crossinx has an IT infrastructure that consists of 1 site, 7 physical servers, and 20 virtual machines. Virtual machines fulfill the functions of Microsoft Active Directory controllers, web servers, file servers, and test environments. Crossinx needs to protect their data and applications to meet internal information security requirements as well as their customers’ requirements. The IT infrastructure plays a significant role when it comes to development and product processes inside the company. In case of data loss, further development of their products and customer support might be delayed.

Crossinx used manual backups or scripts for the internal infrastructure to protect their data. Using manual backups had many disadvantages for the company. First, it was difficult to orchestrate the backups from different data sources and types. Secondly, all backup and recovery processes were difficult to control and lacked transparency. The ideal solution that Crossinx needed was a centralized solution, with an easy-to-use interface and rich functionality. And one that would not break the bank at the same time.

Crossinx selected NAKIVO Backup & Replication as the new solution for protecting their IT infrastructure because the product met their requirements at an attractive pricing point. NAKIVO Backup & Replication protects not only virtual machines but physical servers as well. Also, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers ease of access and management with an intuitive web interface. Lastly, NAKIVO Backup & Replication helps Crossinx reduce staff involvement and provides a transparent overview of the backup performance.

“The environment was deployed in the shortest possible time and without the involvement of any third-party specialists, which speaks to the ease and quality of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. Now, the product is running in a fully automated mode and does not require any additional configuration,” says Yurii Sakhnovych, IT Security Manager at Crossinx GmbH. “The thing that we appreciate the most is the ease of managing our backup assets. With a couple of clicks, a new virtual server can be added to the backup process, without the need to install any additional software.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication performs consistent, image-based backups of Microsoft Hyper-V VMs. The product also allows Crossinx to perform Windows Server backup, ensuring data consistency of applications and databases. “The entire backup scope can be completed in a pretty short time. Of course, it depends on the server we want to back up. The fastest are backups of virtual servers, while backups of physical servers take longer. Usually, 10 minutes are needed to create a new recovery point,” says Yurii.

“The native integration with Microsoft Hyper-V is great and helps us protect our data every time we need to. The headache is gone when it comes to protecting critical servers,” says Yurii. “What we also enjoy is instant file recovery. For the recovery of only one 3MB file, we do not need to save 100GB partition and then find this file. We just choose the needed file and the recovery destination. The functionality saves a huge amount of time for us.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication helps Crossinx protect Microsoft Hyper-V VMs and Windows servers. The product also provides a transparent overview of all backup jobs and, with an intuitive web user-interface, the IT team enjoy ease of access and management. With instant file recovery, the recovery of files has also never been easier.

“Previously, we spent much time on backup administration, and the backups of physical servers were always a problem. Fortunately, we did not experience any serious crashes and data loss. Now, with NAKIVO Backup & Replication, we have an automated backup process that does not require constant oversight and management. Thus, our IT team can focus on further developing our IT infrastructure, knowing that our data is safe,” says Yurii.

As businesses face a growing number of threats and compliance regulations, Druva Cloud Platform’s metadata pipeline helps ensure data is readily available when businesses need it most, while its resilient architecture and security workload orchestration helps thousands of customers enhance detection, reduce data loss, and accelerate recovery.

“We’ve saved money and improved team efficiency across the board,” said Timothy Loranger, Cloud Infrastructure Services Leader, Suez Water Technologies & Solutions. “Overall, with Druva we cut our TCO by 50 percent — and even more than that when you factor in cost avoidance.”

“With the Druva Cloud Platform, I don’t have to worry about moving hardware around to support new environments,” said Chris Brode, ISO, network and system administrator for the State of California’s Office of Governor Newsom. “As we scale, we only need to spin up proxies and back up that environment.”

“After we wiped the affected endpoint, we fully restored the affected data from the Druva backup in a couple of minutes,” said Rob Ljunggren, Director of IT, Vertrax, after experiencing a ransomware attack. “I finally have the transparency I need to protect our data.”

Veeam named by Gartner as a Magic Quadrant Leader for the fifth consecutive time and positioned highest in ability to execute?two years in a row

COLUMBUS, OH – July 21, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solutions1. Not only does this mark the fifth time Gartner has recognized Veeam as a Magic Quadrant Leader, but it is the second consecutive year Veeam is positioned highest overall in ability to execute; the company had the greatest shift to the right in completeness of vision of all vendors mentioned. Veeam believes this recognition further validates the company’s investment and commitment to protecting customer’s data and delivering a complete Modern Data Protection portfolio, as well as its decade-long reputation for innovation and product excellence.

“Now more than ever, organizations expect and demand Modern Data Protection that is simple, flexible, reliable and powerful,” said Danny Allan, CTO and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “As a Magic Quadrant Leader for the fifth year in a row, Veeam is continually innovating and executing, and setting the industry standard. With $1B+ in annual bookings and 400,000+ customers, Veeam will continue to provide its community with the most advanced data protection across all environments – Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes – and the highest levels of customer support.”

Veeam released Veeam Backup & Replication™ v11 earlier this year, enabling the most advanced data protection solution for Cloud, Virtual, Physical and Enterprise workloads. With more than 200 new features and enhancements, the single solution for comprehensive data management is powerful and flexible enough to protect each phase of the data life cycle, while handling all the complexities of a multi-cloud environment for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. Veeam recently surpassed 1 million active Veeam Backup & Replication installations since the inception of its flagship product 13 years ago.

The report included analysis of 12 enterprise data backup and recovery solutions vendors. Access the full report here: https://www.veeam.com/2021-gartner-magic-quadrant.html

Company Is Positioned as a Leader for the Second Consecutive Time in Its Third Year of Recognition in the Report

SAN JOSE, CA – July 21, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cohesity today announced that it has been named a Leader in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software Solutions report. The company is positioned as a Leader for the second consecutive time in just its third recognition in this report.

As per the Gartner report, “Leaders have the highest combined measures of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders and intellectual property (IP) creators, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth.”*

In the report, Gartner defines enterprise backup and recovery solutions as those “designed to capture a point-in-time copy (backup) of an enterprise workload and write the data out to a secondary storage device for the purpose of recovering this data in case of loss.”**

“We believe being named a Leader in this report speaks to Cohesity’s success in delivering next-gen data management, which starts with helping organizations protect their data and rapidly recover from ransomware attacks – critically important in today’s world, ” said Lynn Lucas, chief marketing officer, Cohesity. “Couple that with the ability to easily backup, recover, and manage data across a host of use cases – in the data center, edge, cloud, or through as a service, all on one platform – that is radical simplicity at its best.”

Innovations That Solve Critical Customer Pain Points
Cohesity has maintained a rapid pace of innovation, focusing on building and delivering solutions that make data management simple to do and easy to scale while protecting data from ransomware attacks. Key breakthroughs introduced this year include:

– Recovery and Protection From Ransomware: Organizations such as Sky Lakes Medical are benefitting from the tremendous value that Cohesity DataProtect delivers to customers via the company’s multicloud data platform. Sky Lakes found Cohesity’s immutable backup snapshots, WORM, and other built-in protections especially valuable when the organization was hit by a massive ransomware attack late in 2020. Cohesity’s solutions helped Sky Lakes recover quickly from the ransomware attack – potentially helping to save lives – without requiring the company to pay a penny of ransom.

– Backup as a Service (Baas): Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is a SaaS offering that gives customers another easy way to ensure their on-premises and cloud-based data is backed up and protected. In just six months, Cohesity has expanded the workloads protected with this offering to include: Microsoft Exchange Online, OneDrive, SharePoint Online, and Teams, VMware, SQL Server, Amazon EC2 virtual instances and compute infrastructure and Amazon RDS cloud databases. Cohesity DataProtect delivered as a Service is available in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.

– Automated Disaster Recovery: Cohesity SiteContinuity is integrated with the company’s snapshot-based backup, continuous data protection, and automated failover/failback orchestration capabilities – making it the only web-scale solution to protect applications across tiers, service levels, and locations on a single platform. This helps address enterprise concerns about losing data to ransomware attacks, natural disasters, and human error. It also allows strict SLAs to be met.

Customer Quotes Highlighting the Value of Cohesity Solutions
“Little did we know that Cohesity was going to literally rescue Sky Lakes from having to pay a ransom,” said John Gaede, director of information systems, Sky Lakes Medical Center. “The backup and recovery technology just flat-out worked. We ultimately recovered all of our servers, and Cohesity worked time and time again throughout that process.”

“We were able to recover our clinical systems, and one of the first was for our cancer treatment center,” said Sam Stewart, network systems analyst, Sky Lakes Medical Center. “Cancer doesn’t wait for anybody, and if patients are unable to get timely treatment, cancer will win that battle. So, you could argue, quite literally, that Cohesity saved lives in this instance.”

“We chose Cohesity to protect our Microsoft 365 data because we are already using Cohesity DataProtect across our on-premises IT, and we can now benefit from the single pane of glass analytics, reporting, and monitoring provided by the Cohesity Helios platform, without having to invest in additional infrastructure,” said Peter Hughes, head of IT, Stockport NHS Foundation Trust. “Cohesity helps us deliver a simple, yet more capable backup and recovery operation for our hospitals and healthcare services. No matter where the data resides, Cohesity can give us the protection and recovery we need.”

“The day-to-day operational data that we manage in healthcare is too important to rely only on the backup capabilities delivered by key SaaS providers such as Microsoft Exchange Online and OneDrive,” said Curt Kwak, CIO, Proliance Surgeons. “We are happy with Cohesity helping us to broaden this capability. Cloud services and Cohesity give us peace of mind that we can easily recover not only mailboxes but individual files quickly and at scale whenever we need them, without limitations.”

Cohesity was also recently recognized as a Customers’ Choice in the Gartner Peer Insights ‘Voice of the Customer’: Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions report (January 2021). Cohesity was the only vendor recognized as a Customers’ Choice Distinction Vendor in 10 of 11 Category Cut Documents, including Global Enterprises ($10 billion-plus USD revenues), Large Enterprises ($1 billion-$10 billion USD revenues), Midsize Enterprises ($50 million – $1 billion USD revenues), North America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Asia Pacific, Finance, Healthcare, Services, and Public Sector/Government/Education. The report is based on verified reviews from customers that have deployed the solutions. Cohesity customer reviews from this report include:

  • “A modern data management platform with low operational overhead that’s easy to use.” – Senior Infrastructure Architect, 10/27/20
  • “Cohesity – Easy, Flexible, and Efficient DR/BU especially for as-a-service models.” SVP in the Government Industry, 10/17/20
  • “Best suitable product for multi cloud to manage from (a) single portal.” – Sr Manager in the Communications Industry, 10/16/20

Move to Virtustream’s Cloud Services Simplifies IT Management and Fortifies IT from Severe Weather Risks and Hurricane Season with Robust Disaster Recovery Capabilities

MCLEAN, VA – July 21, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Virtustream, an enterprise-class cloud company and Dell Technologies business, announced that GraceKennedy (GK) Foods selected Virtustream Enterprise Cloud to power its growing business’ SAP workloads. The move transforms GraceKennedy Foods’ IT systems for seamless, fast growth in the future and massively improves its disaster recovery (DR) capabilities. This was critical to GK Foods’ cloud selection process, due to the level of exposure the company’s Caribbean-based operations have to severe weather risks, including hurricanes and tropical storms.

“Moving to Virtustream Enterprise Cloud and xStreamCare Services™ added the controls, scalability, security and resiliency that our organization requires every day to support our business success and growth plans,” says Deidre Cousins, Chief Information Officer of GraceKennedy Limited which provides IT oversight for GK Foods. “Virtustream’s integrated security and disaster recovery services, combined with its SAP expertise and high-touch support model, made our move an easy decision.”

“Customers like GK Foods value the enterprise-class benefits of our cloud platform and one-hand-to-shake approach,” says Drew Fassett, SVP and head of global sales at Virtustream. “Combined with more than a decade of experience managing mission-critical SAP applications through our personalized support and services, our comprehensive cloud offerings simplify and accelerate IT transformation.”

Enterprise-class Benefits with Customer-tailored Support and Managed Services
With its move to Virtustream Enterprise Cloud, GK receives white-glove care through Virtustream’s xStreamCare Services, including managed services covering installation, upgrades, patch management and security support, from the applications through the VMs, operating system and database layers. The customer benefits from the service level agreements for all systems, spanning both production and non-production, with committed incident response times as quick as 20 minutes. The new partnership also future-proofs GK’s business for growth with a scale-up architecture that requires no future infrastructure purchases and makes budget forecasting more predictable as an operating expenditure versus a capital expenditure model.

One of the most important new benefits to GK is the integrated disaster recovery (DR) services and support, with DR testing that can be conducted at GraceKennedy’s convenience. With systems now dispersed to different datacenters in the United States, GK will also enjoy a more resilient storage and backup model; and with newly integrated enterprise-class security services, GK can take advantage of encryption at rest, in use and in motion, as well as active monitoring, regulatory support and geographic compliance assurance.

GraceKennedy Foods Set for IT Transformational Journey to SAP S4/HANA® as it Continues on Path of Business Expansion and Growth
With its SAP ECC workloads now safely hosted on the Virtustream Enterprise Cloud platform, GK is positioned to undertake its SAP S4/HANA modernization plans. Accomplishing this strategic transformation will be more manageable now that the company can leverage the best practices and experienced skill sets of Virtustream’s xStreamCare Services, in combination with enterprise-class replicated data center infrastructure. Virtustream’s approach will allow the organization to avoid both the capital expenses and the investments necessary to augment their own IT staff’s skill sets, as is typically required for the modernization and management of S4/HANA.

GK Foods is a division of the GraceKennedy Group, which is one of the largest and most dynamic corporate entities in Jamaica and the Caribbean with a network of 50 subsidiaries and associated companies operating in the areas of food trading and financial services. With its mission to deliver the taste and experience of Jamaican and other multi-cultural foods to the world and leading financial services to the Caribbean region, since 1922 GK has consistently grown and expanded its operations which now span Jamaica, several other Caribbean islands, North and Central America, the United Kingdom and several European countries.

About Virtustream
Virtustream LLC, a Dell Technologies Business, is the enterprise-class cloud company that is trusted by organizations worldwide to migrate and run their mission-critical applications in the cloud. For enterprises, service providers, healthcare organizations and government agencies Virtustream’s xStreamCare Services™ expertise combined with the Virtustream xStream® Management Platform and Infrastructure-as-a Service (IaaS) meets the security, compliance, performance, efficiency and consumption-based billing requirements of complex production applications in the cloud – whether private, public or hybrid.

A new elastic container format for disk and cloud is available in the new version

Munich, Germany – July 21, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Archiware GmbH, expert in data management software, releases version 7.0 of its P5 Data Management Platform. The new version contains a slew of innovative features, including:

• New elastic container storage engine for disk and cloud
• True incremental cloud backup
• LTFS engine with Archiware’s own driver:
– Import of foreign LTFS volumes
– LTFS exchange support on all platforms
• Very fast verification of written data

A real milestone in the evolution of Archiware P5 is the brand new container storage format for backup and archive to cloud storage. Moving away from the virtual tape concept, multiple volumes are now replaced with single Storage Containers to access disk and cloud storage. This new format makes it possible to reduce the transmission overhead between source and destination for more efficient use of storage.

As of P5 version 7.0, regular full backups are a thing of the past. The amount of data requiring renewed backup to disk and cloud is significantly reduced. This is achieved using the new elastic container storage format, along with the intelligent organization of the data within. Expired containers are simply removed from the backup when no longer needed. This advanced technology can be used indefinitely, resulting in faster and more efficient backups. Full backups are only required when writing to LTO tape. This allows whole tapes to be recycled and reused.

Another cutting-edge feature is the import of foreign LTFS volumes. This brings huge benefits for users with data stored on LTFS tapes. LTFS tapes can now easily be searched and browsed by importing them into P5 Archive to an index of choice. All LTFS tapes written by P5 or third-party LTFS software are supported. Formatting, reading and writing of LTFS volumes for import/export is supported on all P5 platforms, including Windows and FreeBSD. P5 is the only data management software to offer LTFS for FreeBSD.

Archiware P5 version 7.0 is now available as an upgrade or free, fully featured 30-day trial on the Archiware website: http://www.archiware.com/download-p5

Headquartered in Munich, Germany, Archiware GmbH is a privately held company with over 20 years of experience in data management software for backup, synchronization and archiving and more than 17,000 licenses sold. Archiware’s software is used by hundreds of media companies worldwide.

The product line includes:

– P5 Synchronize – Replicate data to ensure high availability
– P5 Backup – Back up server data to disk, tape and cloud
– P5 Backup2Go – Back up desktop and laptop data to disk
– P5 Archive – MAM-like Archive to migrate data offline to disk, tape and cloud
– Pure – Essential VMware Backup

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 15, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veritas Technologies, a global leader in enterprise data protection, today announced support for the AWS for Health initiative from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to accelerate cloud adoption within healthcare.

AWS for Health is an initiative featuring services and solutions from AWS and its Partners, built specifically for healthcare, biopharma and genomics customers. The initiative makes it easier for health customers to select the right tools and partners for their highest-priority workloads. For customers looking to accelerate deployments with solution-specific support, AWS for Health also identifies dedicated AWS health industry specialists, AWS Professional Services teams and leading AWS Partners in each solution area.

As healthcare organizations focused on the COVID-19 national health emergency, many looked for ways to become more agile and scale to reach more patients in need of care. Organizations learned that traditional procurement cycles of buying, provisioning and deploying technology did not move fast enough. Expanded patient access for remote testing centers and then vaccine centers had to be brought online much faster than the several months it would typically take to install on-premises technology. This was further exacerbated in areas that needed surge capacity to support growing inpatient populations. Thousands of caregivers had to switch to work from home overnight and telemedicine quickly scaled to treat millions of patients that may have otherwise not received critical care. For an industry that is governed by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and patient privacy, this was no easy task.

Veritas worked in collaboration with AWS to support the healthcare industry. Veritas enabled healthcare organizations to easily move applications to the cloud with confidence. By running on AWS, Veritas enabled hospitals to rapidly scale and securely spin up surge capacity on demand. This allowed healthcare organizations to provide the necessary access to clinical systems for both remote workers and testing facilities. Recognizing the telehealth challenges experienced by healthcare organizations such as hospitals and doctor offices as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Veritas adapted Enterprise Vault, its proven compliance and classification technology that runs on AWS, to help provide supervision and compliance offerings. This helped healthcare customers ensure that their remote workers were following clinical protocols and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for virtual patient interactions, which changed on a daily basis throughout the pandemic.

By leveraging the cloud, Veritas helps make telehealth a sustainable practice, ensuring patient experience quality and satisfaction, treatment protocol compliance and the security of protected health information as required by HIPAA. Using the breadth and depth of AWS services, Veritas enables customers to solve data management challenges across use cases including archiving (Veritas Enterprise Vault); application resiliency (Veritas InfoScale); and backup, migration and disaster recovery (Veritas NetBackup and Veritas Resiliency Platform).

With the most recent version of Veritas NetBackup, customers can backup data to write once read many (WORM) storage on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) with support for Amazon S3 Object Lock. This enables healthcare customers to extend data immutability from their on-premises infrastructure to the cloud at petabyte scale for delivering ransomware protection and remediation while minimizing disruption and meeting regulatory requirements.

“AWS has demonstrated a commitment to healthcare and worked with Veritas to support this industry when it needed our help the most,” said Rick Bryant, Healthcare CTO for Veritas. “It is not often that we can tie our solutions directly to helping the country fight something as important as COVID-19, so we are proud to stand with AWS to support healthcare organizations solve its toughest data management challenges across backup, disaster recovery, migration, archiving and application resiliency use cases.”

Organizations featured on the list—all six years old or younger—are selected across eight different categories: cloud, data center, security, big data, mobility, Internet of Things (IoT), storage, and networking/unified communications.

A rise in ransomware attacks, protecting applications and workloads under a single management user interface, and being able to smoothly migrate between on-premises and public clouds are only a few of the challenges channel partners are facing to support their customers.

Our unwavering commitment to our channel and resell partners is to help them solve their customers’ most complex problems with simplicity while delivering a financially rewarding engagement model. Thank you to the editors at The Channel Company, we are excited at this newest recognition and can’t thank our channel and resell partners enough for their support. Without them, and a strong team at HYCU, none of this is possible.”

With a commanding grasp of the IT industry’s unique needs, technology vendors featured on the CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list allow solution providers to tackle complex IT market challenges, increase bottom-line revenue across the board, and deliver customer-facing solutions that ensure the IT channel’s ongoing success well into the future.

Leading innovator of bath and beauty products cuts backup costs, while also ensuring data protection and future scalability

LONDON, UK – 15th July 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — iland, a leading VMware-based provider for application hosting, data protection and disaster recovery services delivered on the iland Secure Cloud Platform, today announced that Lush has selected iland Secure Cloud Backup for Veeam Cloud Connect for data security, cost savings and scalability to aid business growth.

Lush is a British cosmetics retailer of bath, body, skin, and hair care products. Founded in 1995, the company is headquartered in Poole, United Kingdom, and operates 951 retail locations across 49 countries. Lush is well known for its devotion to products that are fresh, effective, ethically sourced, cruelty-free, vegetarian, handmade and low-waste.

With the company and its data growing at a rapid pace, Brad Candy, head of IT at Lush Digital, began to re-evaluate its backup needs. While Lush did have a solution in place, it was becoming increasingly costly to maintain and required the use of different third-party technologies. With the goal of lowering costs and standardising around Veeam®, the leader in Backup solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, which Lush was already using on-premises, Candy began looking into alternatives on the market.

As a five-time Veeam Impact Cloud and Service Provider Partner winner and three-time Veeam Innovation Award winner, iland represented a perfect fit for Lush. With iland Secure Cloud Backup for Veeam Cloud Connect, Lush got a fully integrated, secure solution for no-compromise, data protection all managed through a unified console. It also came at a fifth of the cost as their existing solution.

“iland just blows everyone away. I don’t know what they do, but there is some sort of magic going on in the background that keeps costs down and the quality up,” said Candy. “From my point of view, iland Secure Cloud Backup met all the criteria we had in mind for an enterprise-level, scalable solution.”

While Candy’s initial goal was simply to find a cost-effective, like-for-like solution, he soon noticed a number of added benefits beyond the standard protection against data loss events like malicious or accidental deletions, hardware failures and cybercrime. For example, his team now has access to iland’s award-winning Secure Cloud Console, a unified management platform that allows for unmatched monitoring, control, and visibility into their environments. iland also provides dedicated on-boarding and 24/7/365 support along with committed account managers.

“The combination of iland and Veeam really checked a lot of the boxes for us,” said Candy. “Looking into cloud-based backup initially started as a cost-saving exercise, but the functionality of iland’s solution and its ease of use made it a no-brainer.”

“Cloud backup solutions that are easy and cost-effective have never been more important for growing businesses, especially those with strict IT budgets and increased data availability needs,” said Johnny Carpenter, iland vice president of sales for EMEA. “The ‘magic’ of iland is our ability to work with customers, understand their needs and then offer the best possible solutions, support and price point. Our goal is to continue helping Lush in this manner, providing the security and flexibility it needs to scale and lay a foundation for future cloud strategy. Lush has long-thrived in an industry that rewards ingenuity and adaptability — characteristics that are not only vital to success, but also make for great partnerships. We look forward to what the future holds.”

For over 20 years, Lush has been driven by an ethos of creativity and innovation, from its fizzing bath bombs and shower jellies, to its commitment to fresh ingredients and the fight against animal testing, to its customer-driven mobile app. It’s no surprise, then, that this mentality extended to Candy’s search for a cloud backup solution.

“We want to approach our IT strategy the same way we, as a business, approach everything else,” said Candy. “We want all the traditional IT services that allow a modern company to function, but we also must maintain our ability to be flexible and agile enough to create all the new products, smells, and wonderful things we do.”

Lush viewed iland Secure Cloud Backup as the best way to achieve these core-company goals, while also beginning to plan cloud strategy that, according to Candy, is still in its embryonic stages. Cloud backup is often the first-place company’s start on their cloud journey, and iland’s solution is specifically designed to help modernise an organisation’s IT and business continuity plan.

“Our entire experience, from the ease of set up and ease of use, to the cloud console, to cost point, really speaks to iland being the right place for us to be in this moment,” said Candy.

About iland
iland is a global cloud service provider of secure and compliant hosting for infrastructure (IaaS), disaster recovery (DRaaS) and backup as a service (BaaS). They are recognised by industry analysts as a leader in disaster recovery.

Failure of Traditional Defenses in Preventing Attacks Highlights Need for Greater Focus on Being Able to Recover Quickly Without Paying Ransom

SAN MATEO, CA – July 15, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Cloudian® today issued its 2021 Ransomware Victims Report, based on an independent survey of 200 IT decision makers whose organizations experienced a ransomware attack between 2019 and 2021. The survey found that traditional ransomware defenses are failing, with 54% of all victims having anti-phishing training and 49% having perimeter defenses in place at the time of attack. Citing this and other findings from the survey—including the widespread impact of the attacks and the average financial costs totaling over $400,000—the report calls for organizations to focus greater attention on putting systems in place that enable quick data recovery in the event of an attack, without paying ransom.

Despite Defensive Measures, Ransomware Gets In
Many organizations spend large portions of their cybersecurity budget on defensive measures such as anti-malware software and anti-phishing training for employees. Despite these efforts, however, ransomware attacks have become increasingly sophisticated, enabling cybercriminals to penetrate the defenses. The survey found that:

  • Phishing continues to be one of the easiest paths for ransomware, with 24% of ransomware attacks starting this way.
  • Phishing succeeded despite the fact that 54% of all respondents and 65% of those that reported it as the entry point had conducted anti-phishing training for employees.
  • 49% of respondents had perimeter defenses in place prior to the successful attack.
  • Public cloud was the most common point of entry for ransomware, with 31% of respondents being attacked this way.

Ransomware Victim Survey Report - Defenses in Place Prior to Attack

Attackers Move Fast and the Impact is Widespread
Once cybercriminals are able to insert ransomware, they can quickly take over and significantly impact all aspects of an organization:

  • 56% of survey respondents reported that attackers were able to take control of their data and demand ransom within just 12 hours, and another 30% said it happened within 24 hours.
  • More than half of those surveyed said the attacks significantly impacted their financials, operations, employees, customers and reputation.

Ransomware Victim Survey Report - Significant Impacts to Business

The Financial Costs Go Beyond Just Ransom Payments
Ransom payments are significant and rising, but they’re not the only costs of an attack. For the 55% of respondents that chose to pay the ransom:

  • The average ransom payment was $223,000, with 14% paying $500,000 or more.
  • They spent an average of $183,000 more for other costs resulting from the attack.
  • Cyber insurance covered only about 60% of the ransomware payment and other costs, presumably reflecting deductibles and coverage caps.
  • Despite paying ransom, only 57% of respondents got all their data back.

“The threat of ransomware will continue to plague organizations around the world if they do not change their approach and response to it,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “Cyberattacks can penetrate even the most robust defenses, so it’s critical that organizations prioritize being able to recover quickly from an attack.

The best way to do so is to have an immutable backup copy of your data, which prevents hackers from encrypting or deleting the data for a specified period of time. As a result, organizations can recover an unencrypted copy of their data in the event of an attack without having to pay the ransom.”

To read the full 2021 Ransomware Victims Report, visit https://bit.ly/Cloudian2021RansomwareReport

About the Ransomware Survey
The survey was conducted among 200 IT decision makers in the US whose organization had experienced a ransomware attack in the last two years. The interviews were conducted online by Sapio Research in April 2021 using an email invitation and an online survey.

Results of any sample are subject to sampling variation. The magnitude of the variation is measurable and is affected by the number of interviews and the level of the percentages expressing the results. In this particular study, the chances are 95 in 100 that a survey result does not vary, plus or minus, by more than 6.9 percentage points from the result that would be obtained if interviews had been conducted with all persons in the universe represented by the sample.

Sapio Research is a global, full-service market research consultancy providing high quality insights which deliver against key business objectives and inform messaging.

About Cloudian

Revamped channel program doubles down on Platinum solution providers, increasing incentives for new business and delivering deeper insights

SANTA CLARA, Calif. – July 13, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Veritas Technologies, the global leader in enterprise data protection, has launched its 2022 Veritas Partner Force Program, designed to foster increased and more predictable earnings for its channel community as they solve the big challenges facing their customers today: ransomware and the complexities of managing an increasingly diverse multi-cloud environment. The simplified program includes further rewards and deeper collaboration, as well as incentivizing Veritas’ channel to strategically expand the company’s footprint while hardening customers’ resilience against ransomware.

“Almost every week, we see cyberattacks against organizations and critical infrastructure around the globe. Hackers are upping the ante and companies need to respond. That’s why we’re empowering our solution providers with the tools and incentives to help their customers protect their data and make their infrastructure more resilient. Whether the threat is data loss, ransomware or downtime, and whether their data resides in the cloud, in containers or on premises, Veritas and our partners are ready to help,” says Mike Walkey, VP Channel Sales and Alliances at Veritas.

Focus on multi-cloud migration and ransomware protection
Veritas is making it more profitable for its channel community to help customers recover from ransomware attacks and to manage data across increasingly complex multi-cloud environments. Solution providers will now be eligible for double the rebate on registered opportunities at new customers, double the rebate on NetBackupTM competitive take outs, and double the rebate on projects that include APTARETM, the industry-leading IT Analytics platform, and Infoscale, Veritas’ data management and availability solution.

Veritas is also introducing more time-friendly rebate targets, splitting up annual performance indicators into quarterly goals. This will allow successful solution providers to accelerate their movement up the program tiers and benefit more rapidly from the highest rebates in the program. In addition, Veritas is creating an advisory council of the executive board to discuss new market and technology trends and to provide real-time feedback on the company’s strategy. This intensive regular exchange will ensure a consistent and formalized process for solution providers` voices to be heard at the highest level throughout the company.

Veritas Partner Force members will also benefit from a closer and more regular exchange of detailed information both from a sales enablement and marketing perspective. For example, Veritas will offer greater insight into renewal opportunities and customer revenue forecasting, so that solution providers have the tools to help grow the footprint of Veritas solutions in these accounts. As they successfully expand renewal opportunities, Veritas will reward these projects and increase the profit for the solution providers.

Pittsburgh, PA — July 14th, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Getting cloud costs under control is a top priority for any organization driving a digital transformation. In a recent survey conducted by 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence, 39 percent of 450 enterprise IT decision-makers stated that controlling costs was a key barrier to broader cloud implementations while 65 percent indicated that it was a primary reason for determining where to run an organization’s workloads1. So, the problem is how do enterprises stop costs from spiraling out of control because of easy access to an increasingly complex set of options, while retaining the flexibility to scale quickly to meet changing market demands.

In response, Expedient announced today the availability of its Expedient Cost CTRL, which enables organizations to centralize and optimize their spending, regardless of workload location across a dynamic multi-cloud plain, including on-premises environments, on-site private clouds, VMware based enterprise clouds, and hyperscale environments. This best-in-class curated suite of cloud cost management capabilities gives clients a way to view the entirety of their cloud spend while optimizing current workload performance, and predicting future spend with upfront cost estimates across all cloud environments.

“If not managed properly, moving workloads to the cloud and controlling ongoing costs can be very challenging,” says Bryan Smith, Senior VP & Chief Strategy Officer at Expedient. “If you have workloads spread across multiple clouds and locations while being managed by multiple teams, it’s incredibly difficult to understand the real-time, all-in expense and to project future levels demanded by the business. Expedient Cost CTRL provides that visibility across all workload locations, so you can have the right applications running on the right cloud platform, every time.”

Cloud cost management requires unique expertise and often cloud teams are too busy to focus on the technical and operational processes necessary to even control, let alone reduce costs. This issue coupled with complex billing and lack of spend visibility can lead to cloud sprawl, spiraling costs, stalled migrations, and eroded confidence in cloud and digital transformation initiatives. Expedient Cost CTRL provides an easy-to-use GUI, so clients can build reports and leverage customizable analytics, that makes ongoing optimization recommendations to deliver savings and a quick ROI back into the user’s business.

“We’ve been working with Expedient to not only better manage our ongoing cloud costs but to continually optimize workload and application performance,” says Stuart Hill, CIO from Dunlap & Kyle Tire Company. The leading automotive and preventive maintenance services provider, with 18 wholesale distribution centers and 54 retail locations across 8 states, has been working with Expedient since 2018 to help drive a digital transformation. Stuart goes on to say, “Expedient has given us the flexibility to move to a hybrid computing model with ease. They are a trusted advisor always finding new ways to drive greater efficiencies and bottom-line results.”

This latest offering from Expedient is part of the company’s Expedient CTRL – multi-cloud universal services suite. As the leading, full-stack Cloud Service Provider (CSP), delivering enterprise cloud computing and data center Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) capabilities, Expedient’s latest multi-cloud offering includes:

Continuous workload optimization creates transparency for cloud resource utilization expenses. This empowers administrators to enforce workload validation for budget compliance across multiple cloud environments.

At Microsoft Inspire 2021, Acronis revealed how service providers like US Signal now protect client Microsoft 365 environments with the same cutting-edge tech pro sports teams rely on

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, July 14, 2021 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, the global leader in cyber protection, demonstrated how service providers of all sizes can now protect their clients’ Microsoft environments with the same comprehensive cyber protection solution relied on by some of the world’s top sports’ teams. The reveal was made at Microsoft Inspire 2021, where the company released a new case study of Michigan-based service provider US Signal in advance of a panel featuring IT executives from its sports partners, including 13-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports.

One of Acronis’ Sports Partners, Hendrick Motorsports relies on Acronis Cyber Protect – which unifies data protection, cybersecurity, and endpoint protection management in one integrated solution – to safeguard its business and performance data shared across its Microsoft 365 environment. With more than 100TB of engineering and wind tunnel data, and over 250TB across the entire organization, Hendrick Motorsports runs daily backups and protects all Teams channels, Microsoft 365 mailboxes, and SharePoint sites with Acronis’ solution.

Dylan Pollock, senior network engineer at Hendrick Motorsports, explains, “Acronis is helping us protect our edge and providing peace of mind by giving us the flexibility to back up all of our workloads, restore any file or full machine, roll out DR on demand, and keep our data in multiple locations.”

“Acronis’ Sports Partners are putting our technology through its paces in some of the most demanding, competitive environments in the world,” said Craig Joseph, Chief Alliance Officer at Acronis, and also a speaker at Microsoft Inspire this year. “Acronis democratizes our solutions so managed service providers (MSPs) can deliver world-class, comprehensive cyber protection to SMBs. We are proud to offer this partnership in the world of sports.”

From the racetrack to MSP stacks
The same uniquely integrated solution is available to service providers as Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud, which delivers a set of essential cyber protection capabilities at little to no cost. MSPs can extend their services with advanced protection packs that deliver enhanced capabilities. The recently released Advanced Email Security, powered by Perception Point, enables MSPs to protect their clients’ Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Open-Xchange mailboxes, or on-premises mail server – stopping all email-borne threats such as spam, phishing and spoofing, business email compromises (BECs), advanced persistent threats (APTs), and zero-day malware attacks.

US Signal’s Solutions Architect Chris Bolek lauds Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud as being transformative in protecting its clients Microsoft 365 data.

“A big advantage for US Signal is how Acronis meshes with our networking backbone. Even with hybrid deployments where clients have an on-premises server as well as something running in our cloud infrastructure, it all can be backed up and recovered with one holistic solution,” explained Bolek. “The integration with Microsoft 365 has added even more benefits for us to cover the gaps of that widely used platform.”

Bolek illustrated the benefits of using Acronis by describing a recent client win. A healthcare provider had identified some data retention and security gaps in their Microsoft 365 environment that needed to be addressed given regulatory requirements. Bolek detailed data protection and cybersecurity capabilities of Acronis’ solution and demonstrated how it could be managed by either the healthcare provider’s team or by US Signal – providing tremendous flexibility and control to the client.

Based on Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud’s comprehensive coverage, deployment flexibility, ease of use, low cost, and time-saving benefits, the healthcare provider’s IT team was able to convince their executives to go with US Signal for fully managed Microsoft 365 service contract.

Additional sports partners rely on cyber protection
Acronis’ comprehensive, flexible, and easy-to-use protection of Microsoft environments is in part why it has become the cyber protection partner of choice for so many of the world’s top sports clubs.

The U.K.’s legendary Arsenal Football Club is also at the forefront of using data to improve performance both on and off the pitch. The club knows that data is extremely valuable and needs to be protected. Acronis provides cyber protection for Arsenal’s data and systems.

Christelle Heikkila, IT Director for Arsenal Football Club, explained, “Microsoft Office 365 is core to how we operate on a day-to-day basis. We back up all of our OneDrive and SharePoint files into Acronis’ cloud, and that gives us confidence that if we need to retrieve that data, it’s easy and efficient to do so. But most importantly, that data is secure … We’ve seen the power-of-one in Acronis Cyber Protect, giving us that extra security to keep ourselves as cyber-safe as possible.”

Any service provider attending Microsoft Inspire 2021 is invited to attend Acronis’ session, entitled Lessons for MSPs from Professional Sports Teams on Protecting Microsoft Environments. The Table Top session begins at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday, July 15.
