Introduces Workflow Automation Features, Developer Tools, and New Integrations

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – January 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Box, Inc. (NYSE:BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced new and enhanced capabilities, integrations, and developer tools for its native e-signature product, Box Sign. These new capabilities include workflow features that automate processes once a document has been executed and APIs that power e-signatures in third-party and custom applications. Box also announced new and deepened integrations with UiPath and SIGNiX. With these new capabilities, Box Sign can now power even more advanced signature-based processes, helping customers move more of their transactions to the cloud.

“E-signature technology drives a number of benefits for organizations, including reduction in transaction time and cost, increased security, and improved employee, supplier, partner, and customer experiences,” said Steve Charbonnier, Research Manager of Enterprise Content Strategies at IDC. “That being said, e-signature is only one component of a fully digitized workflow, and it is most beneficial when it’s included in a broader portfolio of content sharing, collaboration and workflow automation solutions. We expect that the approach Box has taken to integrate Box Sign into its Content Cloud platform positions it well for organizations globally who are looking to digitally transform their end-to-end business critical processes.”

Box Sign makes it easy for users on Business and above plans to execute unlimited e-signatures where their content already lives at no additional cost. Since the global rollout in November 2021, thousands of customers have enabled Box Sign within their organizations. In addition, Box was named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape Worldwide eSignature Software 2021 Vendor Assessment*. Building on this strong momentum, today Box announced the following:

New Box Sign Features
The future of work is digital-first and paper-based processes hold companies back from reaching their full potential. Customers are already using Box Sign to execute employee, customer, and partner transactions digitally, from employee onboarding documents, to sales contracts, to vendor agreements, and more.

To extend the power of Box Sign, today Box announced the following new features to the Box Sign web application:

  • Compatibility with Box Relay. Customers using Box Relay for secure workflow automation will be able to trigger downstream workflows based on document status in Box Sign. With this new integration, for example, HR teams will be able to kick off new hire onboarding steps if the signature status is complete, or if the status is declined, assign a task for the recruiter to follow up with the candidate. This new feature is expected to be available in the first half of 2022.
  • Lock template fields. Customers will be able to lock template fields when creating signature templates, helping reduce the need for additional auditing requirements and preventing senders from making alterations to pre-defined contract templates. This new feature will give teams, like sales operations and finance, precise controls to standardize documents such as NDAs sent for signature. This new feature is expected to be available in the first half of 2022.
  • Customized signature settings. Admins will be able to manage electronic signature disclosures in the Admin Console, with the flexibility to use either disclosures they provide themselves or disclosures provided by Box. Also, end users will be able to upload signature images and stamps that can be applied during signing. These features give customers more personalized signing options and will be available later this month.
  • Improved access to Box Verified Enterprise. Available today, this enhancement makes Sign compatible with Box Verified Enterprise (BVE), which is used by security-conscious customers to protect sensitive content by preventing non-corporate Box access within their organization. This enables BVE customers to address internal and external e-signature use cases without any changes to their network settings.

“According to IDC, the worldwide e-signature market is expected to grow from $2.3 billion in 2020 to $6.4 billion by 2025**, making it one of the fastest growing markets in enterprise software,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “Since entering the space with our acquisition of SignRequest less than a year ago, we have already brought seamless, native e-signatures to all of our customers on Business and above plans at no additional cost. Today’s announcements build on our promise to expand on Box Sign’s core capabilities by delivering customers and partners with a richer set of features, new and deepened integrations, and a world-class developer experience. We have only begun to scratch the surface on what is possible within the e-signature space, so customers can expect to see even more value from Box in the coming months.”

New Developer Tools
At BoxWorks 2021, Box rolled out a core set of Box Sign APIs to reduce time to production for custom and third-party application development. In just three months, developers are already building on Box Sign APIs, leveraging Box’s powerful and secure e-signature technology to create custom experiences that meet their unique business and customer needs.

To deliver a more seamless experience, Box added the following new developer tools available today:

  • SDK support for .NET, Node, Python, Box CLI, and iOS. Box has expanded SDK support from Java to add additional server and mobile SDKs, including .NET, Python, Node, and iOS. Now developers can work with Box Sign APIs, in the language or environment of their choice, to build secure e-signature experiences into their in-house tools and custom integrations, as well as in their native mobile apps.
  • Box Sign API for signer verification and password protection of docs. Box Sign has added API support for SMS-based two-factor authentication and for password-protection of documents sent for signature deliveries. Together, these APIs give an added layer of security to customers by helping to verify the identity of signers in third-party and custom applications, and enable customers to address use cases requiring additional authentication.

New and Deepened Integrations
This robust set of APIs, combined with SDK support and the rest of the Box platform, delivers a seamless experience for partners to integrate e-signature functionality directly into their systems instead of building a similar solution from scratch. From workflow automation to notarial services, partners such as UiPath and SIGNiX are already leveraging Sign API’s to help joint customers save development time and enhance business productivity.

For example, Box today is also announcing the following new and deepened integrations:

  • Expanded UiPath integration for Box Sign. As one of the most popular integrations for the UiPath platform, UiPath for Box already makes it easy for users and teams to leverage UiPath advanced technologies to automate processes that rely on files, data, or documents in Box. UiPath also plans to add Box Sign to UiPath Integration Service to help customers accelerate complex enterprise workstreams like contract processing, HR onboarding, and sales operations.
  • Box Sign with SIGNiX for secure, remote online notarization. Some jurisdictions require notarization of entire classes of documents, including commercial leases, mortgage documents, and legal affidavits. Available today, Box Sign with SIGNiX is designed to help reduce bottlenecks by providing a seamless experience for using SIGNiX’s remote solution and automatically storing SIGNiX documents in the Box Content Cloud.

“As interest in accelerated processes amongst organizations continues to grow, the expanded UiPath integration with Box enables enterprise organizations to easily begin or continue their enterprise automation journey, successfully mature and scale their automation initiatives, and refocus their workforce on business transformation,” said Param Kahlon, UiPath Chief Product Officer. “We’re proud to be partnering closely with Box to build integrations that help users improve productivity and get faster results at scale.”

First in the world backup software for GitLab released – why do you need
that?

Gorzów Wielkopolski, Poland – January 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Data loss costs millions of dollars, and the cost depends on the value of the data itself. Loss of source code and intellectual property of some code-oriented companies might cause collapse and bankruptcy. While businesses of all kinds are increasingly defined by their software, protecting code is synonymous with protecting the company itself.

What are the places where development teams spend thousands of hours (and money) to write,
support, and improve projects? Git hosting services, such as GitHub, Bitbucket, and GitLab.

GitLab backup – #1 in the world
GitProtect.io , the Git repository backup software vendor, expanded portfolio of the first in the word GitLab backup software that now supports GitLab repositories and metadata, including pull
requests, issues, wikis, comments, webhooks, pipelines, milestones, and more. This automated
backup software aims to replace internally written scripts, that are usually insufficient, as well as
time- and work-consuming. Thus GitProtect.io for GitLab brings automated data protection and the central management console that reduce administrative overhead and allows IT managers to focus on what’s most important – development and generating growth while staying compliant.

The mission behind this project is to support DevOps and include backup as an inherent part of the
pipeline so that no development team ever loses a single line of source code.

The vendor paraphrases the well-known words in the industry that there are two types of people:
those who do repository backups and those who will (once they experience a data breach or cyber-
attack). So for those who do and will, GitProtect.io delivers automated backup and recovery for all
GitHub, Bitbucket, and now also GitLab data.

Now, all 30 million GitLab users, 56 million registered developers of GitHub, and over 10 million
business customers of Bitbucket can take advantage of the free GitProtect.io trial on the official
project website.

Ups, something went wrong – why do you need GitLab backup?
Can you imagine how much it would cost tech companies to lose access to the source code the entire IT development team has been working on for months? Is it even possible?

Source code, even if hosted within such reliable hosting services as Bitbucket, GitHub or GitLab,
might get unavailable or lost. While those services are considered accessible and proven, no service
provider can ensure customers with 100% availability. For example, in June 2020 GitHub experienced a major outage that lasted for hours and impacted millions of developers. Some time ago a huge outage happened to GitLab.com and made its services unavailable for many hours. Moreover, the company lost some production data that was unable to recover.

Ransomware does not bypass those companies as well. In the history of these service providers,
there were situations that attackers massively targeted Bitbucket, GitHub, and GitLab accounts,
wiped code and commits from many repositories, and left behind only a mysterious ransom note.

Finally, we have to mention the nightmare of every Head of IT and cybersecurity professional – human errors. Branch or old repository deletion, head overwrite synchronization problems, or some intentional malicious behavior – that’s just some of the developers’ mistakes that can put source code in danger or wipe it out irreversibly.

Source protection today
So, how do companies handle GitLab repository backup today? Generally: they don’t. And if so, there are usually DIY methods based on git-clone commands and self-written scripts. Some businesses rely on snapshots of their local git instances. But those approaches have their limitations – high-long-term costs of script administration, no backup verification, no automation, and no restore guarantee which could potentially make backup useless in case of any event of failure.

GitProtect.io – the next-gen GitLab backup
GitProtect.io is the professional, fully manageable GitHub, Bitbucket, and now also GitLab backup and Disaster Recovery software for any responsible and code-oriented business. The software ensures customers with repository and metadata automatic, and recurring backups, unlimited retention, repository archive possibilities, a data-driven central management console, easy monitoring and most of all disaster recovery features. It’s compatible with nearly any storage (cloud and local) so there is no need to invest in an additional IT infrastructure – you can bring your own storage or use free GitProtect.io cloud storage included.

GitProtect.io is a project of Xopero Software, a company with over 12 years of backup experience and established partnerships with such companies as ESET, T-Mobile, and Orange.

Considering Intellectual Property value and GitLab emphasis on adequate data protection, we
foresee that GitLab backup, in the footsteps of Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, or Salesforce, will
become another, key data protection field considered as a part of every development process – says
Lukasz Jesis, Founder and CEO of Xopero Software and GitProtect.io.

GitProtect.io is already available on GitHub Marketplace and Bitbucket Marketplace . Now the company offers free trial options for GitLab users as the only backup service provider in the world. The brand wants to increase GitLab repository backup awareness among developers and make source code protection more available for everyone.

About Xopero Software
Xopero Software, founded in 2009, is a leading backup and recovery software vendor. The company cooperates with such enterprises as T-Mobile, Orange and since 2017 is a member of ESET Technology Alliance. Xopero Software has been selling in over 50 countries.

OTTAWA, ON – January 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Torozo, a hyper-secure, cloud-based file storage, sharing and transfer space will be launched next month by Leonovus Inc. (TSXV: LTV) with individuals, teams and organizations able to pre-register now and save 50 percent on their first year subscription. Critical data is ultra-protected with Torozo’s FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptography and our patented encrypt, shred, and spread technology that encrypts and shreds your files and distributes them across a range of cloud storage providers with a dirt-simple user interface.

According to Market Research Future, the global file-sharing market is currently more than $4B. With a compound annual growth rate of 26 percent, it will be more than $8B by 2025. The secure file sharing segment of this market will grow to $3B by 2025, according to Arizton Advisory and Intelligence. Torozo caters to this explosive growth in demand for hyper-secure file storage, file sharing and file transfer.

Because of COVID and other market forces, the demand for secure file-transfer solutions has dramatically increased. Organizations in IT, healthcare, legal, software development, government and education sectors have expanded online business operations with employees working from home. The massive growth of remote working has increased the demand for secure file-transfer solutions, preventing data leakages and information breaches. New technologies such as AI, big data, and IoT will drive the adoption of secure file-transfer solutions, like Torozo, as more and more data is pushed to the edge.

The enormous new NFT market is also an ideal target market. Torozo can store and protect the actual, off-chain, digital asset connected to the NFT and the owner’s crypto-identity. There is a massive opportunity for Torozo also to back up cryptocurrency hard and soft wallets. Over 20 percent of all Bitcoin has been lost due to lost keys and passwords, and even a hard wallet can become defective or be lost. Torozo provides a hyper-secure backup.

“Torozo evolved out of our Vault, Smart Filer and XVault technology, with influence from the secure data-sharing requirements of the federal government where we continue to pursue major contracts,” said Michael Gaffney, Chair and CEO, Leonovus Inc.

“Our vision is to be recognized as the world’s most secure file storage, sharing and transfer solution,” said Gaffney.

About Torozo and Hyper-Secure Data Storage, Sharing and Transfer
Torozo will launch next month with full end to end encryption followed in a few weeks with our encrypt, shred, and spread technology, which refers to our unique, proprietary, and ultra-secure, file distribution. Unlike many file-sharing services, Torozo’s encryption is certified FIPS140-2 compliant by NIST. Torozo will become even more secure with addition of asymmetric cryptography later in Q2 0222.

About Leonovus
Leonovus is a software provider that offers solutions that untether and manage your data, allowing you to embrace the cloud securely, simply and cost-effectively while giving you the flexibility to deal with an ever-evolving cloud landscape.

Large datasets are easily accessed and shared with Seagate’s always-on mass-storage cloud-as-a-service platform

FREMONT, CA – January 13, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Seagate Technology Holdings plc (NASDAQ: STX), a world leader in mass-data storage infrastructure solutions, helped international non-profit organization CyArk overcome a major data management challenge with Seagate’s Lyve™ Cloud, the simple, trusted, and efficient storage-as-a-service platform that offers full control of customers’ data without vendor lock-in or egress fees. CyArk’s team also leveraged Seagate’s Lyve Mobile data transfer services to efficiently migrate their massive datasets from multiple on-prem storage devices and server to Lyve Cloud.

CyArk is dedicated to digitally recording, archiving, and sharing the world’s most significant cultural heritage sites with researchers, historians, and educators. Each project generates multiple terabytes (TB) of unstructured data. As a result of the pandemic, CyArk went to a fully remote workforce, severely reducing access to their dedicated on-prem server that houses massive project datasets. They needed a solution that could provide their employees and stakeholders with always-on, secure, and timely access to their data regardless of location.

“As a data-centric organization, data mobility and accessibility are essential, so we needed to rethink the way we store, manage and share our data,” said CyArk’s CEO, John Ristevski. “After exploring options, we found that Seagate’s Lyve Cloud could provide us the most streamlined data access, sustain our workflows without disruption, and enhance productivity.”

“Digital transformation is critical for business continuity through the pandemic,” said Jeff Fochtman, senior vice president of business and marketing at Seagate. “Seagate’s Lyve edge-to-cloud mass storage solution helps organizations like CyArk to overcome the common data storage challenges related to cost and complexity. As a huge fan of CyArk’s mission to digitally preserve the world’s most significant heritage sites, I am excited and proud to support their passionate team with Seagate’s products, services, and expertise.”

The company was recognized in the Technology category for their backup and recovery product for Microsoft Dynamics 365.

Although Dynamics 365 has thousands of customers and millions of active users globally and across industries, there is a lack of modern data protection options available. OwnBackup is uniquely positioned to fill this void with the company’s deep experience in SaaS data protection.

“Restoring data with native Dynamics 365 backup services is a complex, time-consuming process. It requires administrators to revert back to a specific point in time, meaning they will lose all relevant business data added since the last backup was performed,” said Adrian Kunzle, CTO of OwnBackup. “OwnBackup Recover eliminates these issues with automated daily backups and the ability to easily identify and isolate unwanted data deletions, changes, or additions, then restores the precise data affected without disruption to the business.”

According to the award submission, Recover helps customers protect 100% of their Dynamics 365 data in the cloud, proactively alerts data administrators about suspect data changes, and restores only the affected data on a field level in just a few clicks. The solution reduces the risk of data loss or corruption impacting business operations and helps companies adhere to complex data compliance regulations.

Dynamics 365 is the first SaaS platform for OwnBackup to support outside of Salesforce, where they have over 4,000 customers and are recognized as the market leader. Companies using their Recover product for Dynamics 365 include Starkey Hearing Technologies and Illinois Mutual, amongst others. The expansion into Dynamics is the first step in their mission to empower customers to truly own and protect their data on any SaaS platform.

“Innovation is driving growth in the global economy,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring OwnBackup as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”

Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions. In all, the Business Intelligence Group named 13 executives, 56 companies, and 81 products as 2022 winners.

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Jan. 11, 2022 — / BackupReview.info /– Cobalt Iron Inc., a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise data protection, today announced that it has received a patent on its technology for analytics-based cloud brokering of data protection operations. U.S. Patent 11206306, issued on Dec. 21, 2021, describes new techniques that will be implemented in Cobalt Iron Compass®, an enterprise SaaS backup platform. These techniques enable Compass to optimize cloud and on-premises computing resources automatically, making IT operations more secure, more cost-effective, and better-performing.

Security administrators, backup administrators, and other IT leaders responsible for maintaining the service levels and cost-effectiveness of IT operations are increasingly turning to the cloud for various aspects of enterprise data protection. However, cloud resources are rarely used efficiently, which leads to high cloud expenses, inefficient data protection operations, and poor service levels for backups and restores. In addition, cloud resource utilization is often statically configured and unresponsive to changing conditions and events. And some conditions (e.g., changes in backup operational behavior; changes in the costs, availability, or performance of cloud resource services; or cyber-events associated with a cloud resource) might indicate the need to use other on-premises or cloud computing resources to process various data protection effectively. As a result of these deficiencies, enterprises need a more dynamic way to reconfigure cloud and on-premises computing resource usage that is responsive to operational and security conditions.

Cobalt Iron’s new patented techniques use unique operational and infrastructure analytics to respond to changing conditions and to determine optimal usage of cloud and on-premises resources, thereby solving the problem. They can dynamically adjust the use of these resources by IT operations (e.g., data backups or disaster recovery operations) based on operational behaviors and conditions (e.g., poor operational performance or cyber-events).

The techniques disclosed in this patent:

  • Monitor for changes in various operational and security conditions associated with a cloud computing operation.
  • Analyze the operational and security conditions as well as various computing resources to determine the optimal configuration of on-premises and cloud computing resources to perform the cloud computing operation.
  • Dynamically reconfigure the cloud computing operation to use the optimal combination of on-premises and cloud computing resources.
  • Remediate a condition associated with a cloud resource by initiating a data protection operation for data associated with that resource.

For example, if there is a cyber-event in process against certain cloud computing resources, or if there is a change in the cost or availability of a cloud resource, then Cobalt Iron’s patented techniques can dynamically reconfigure cloud computing operations to use a combination of on-premises and/or other cloud resources.

“Companies need to leverage the cloud responsibly. That is, they should use cloud services in a manner that is secure, cost-effective, and operationally beneficial. However, few tools exist to help companies optimize their cloud resource usage,” said Greg Tevis, vice president of strategy at Cobalt Iron. “Cobalt Iron continues to innovate in the area of dynamic, analytics-based infrastructure optimization, including the cloud. This patent discloses techniques that broker cloud and on-premises computing resources so that enterprises end up with the best combination of security, cost-effectiveness, and efficiency for their cloud-based data protection operations.”

About Cobalt Iron
Cobalt Iron was founded in 2013 to bring about fundamental changes in the world’s approach to secure data protection, and today the company’s Compass® is the world’s leading SaaS-based enterprise data protection system. Through analytics and automation, Compass enables enterprises to transform and optimize legacy backup solutions into a simple cloud-based architecture with built-in cybersecurity. Processing more than 8 million jobs a month for customers in 44 countries, Compass delivers modern data protection for enterprise customers around the world. www.cobaltiron.com

BOSTON, MA – January 12, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today announced that Wasabi Object Lock has been named a technology product winner in the 2022 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group. This annual business awards program recognizes organizations, products, and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways.

Ransomware is one of the biggest concerns facing enterprises today, and cybercriminals attack backups and archives as part of their ransomware campaigns. With Object Lock, applications or storage administrators can designate certain data objects as immutable, meaning the content cannot be altered or deleted by any application or user including ransomware attackers or human error, for a specific period of time. It guarantees that once the information is stored with Wasabi, it will remain there until the lock expires, therefore removing the perceived vulnerability of ransomware while keeping the integrity of the data, and having the data readily available and instantly accessible. This accessibility is also critical for maintaining regulatory compliance and consumer protection standards, as well as industry-specific rules like HIPAA, FINRA, and CJIS for securing and preserving electronic records, transactional data, and activity logs.

Object Lock was designed to work seamlessly within Wasabi’s industry-leading price and performance model featuring no fees for egress or API requests. Not only do users know their data is protected with Wasabi, they also have the flexibility to test business continuity and incident response to strengthen their cybersecurity posture amidst today’s ever-evolving risks. It also further enhances Wasabi’s holistic commitment to data security, including 11x9s of data durability, strong identity & multi-factor authentication, and regulatory compliance with the latest privacy and security standards.

“Ransomware attacks have hit a record high and have shown no indication of decreasing any time soon. Cyber criminals will always find a way to get in, so it’s best to leverage cloud storage and backup to securely mitigate the effects rather than waste time and money on intrusion prevention and detection technology,” said David Friend, Co-Founder and CEO of Wasabi Technologies. “Object Lock provides a critical layer of protection during these high risk times. Not only do users know their data is protected with Wasabi, they also have the flexibility to test business continuity and incident response to strengthen their cybersecurity posture.”

“Innovation is driving growth in the global economy,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Wasabi as they are one of the organizations leading this charge and helping humanity progress.”

Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions.

Cloud data management vendors that are committed to infusing AI and Machine Learning into their platforms truly empower MSPs to deliver consistent data protection at scale, gain deeper insights to better protect customers’ data and have automated upsell opportunities.”

Redstor’s smart data management platform leverages AI and machine learning to help companies mitigate data fragmentation and failure points, thwart ransomware and malware attacks, reduce downtime and adhere to global regulatory standards. The company’s proprietary InstantData™ technology delivers instant, user-driven recoveries from the cloud, removing the need to install hardware on-premises. This innovative approach lets MSPs derive all the benefits of a cloud-first model and enables intelligent data portability. MSPs are also fully supported by Redstor’s AI-powered marketing engine, giving partners a complete turnkey solution from seamless onboarding in just three clicks to comprehensive marketing and sales enablement support. There is significant headway for growth in the coming years, given the opportunities MSPs have to leverage intelligent cloud data management platforms and champion data governance, trust and resilience.

ExaGrid posts 4 record-breaking quarters and a record year for revenue in 2021 and remained cash and P&L positive in all 4 quarters and for the year

Marlborough, Mass. – January 11, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — ExaGrid®, the industry’s only Tiered Backup Storage solution, today announced that it had an all-time record bookings and revenue in the quarter ending December 31, 2021. This accomplishment was on the back of ExaGrid’s record-breaking quarters in Q1, Q2 and Q3 2021, increasing both bookings and revenue to a new all-time high.

ExaGrid’s revenue grew 36% as compared to Q4 2020, and for the year grew 39% in 2021 as compared to 2020. In addition, ExaGrid was cash positive for all 4 quarters in 2021. ExaGrid added a record 174 new customers in Q4 2021, including 49 six-figure and 2 seven-figure new customer deals, and has more than 3,200 active customers that use ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage to protect their data. ExaGrid’s growth is accelerating, and the company is hiring over 60 additional inside and field sales staff worldwide.

“IT organizations are truly understanding the difference that ExaGrid brings to the backup storage market with its Tiered Backup Storage approach. ExaGrid reduces the cost of backup storage while maintaining performance and scalability. All of the first-generation deduplication appliances such as Dell EMC Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce, and Veritas 5340, are slow for backup, slow for restores and don’t scale well. Low-cost primary storage disk is too expensive for long-term backup storage. You need to have an integrated approach that brings the performance of backing up to disk but also data deduplication for efficient long-term retention backup storage. ExaGrid’s Tiered Backup Storage provides the best of both worlds,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid.

ExaGrid appliances have a network-facing disk-cache Landing Zone where the most recent backups are written without inline deduplication for fast backups and are stored in an undeduplicated format for fast restores. ExaGrid uses scale-out architecture, which maintains a fixed-length backup window and also eliminates expensive and disruptive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid’s Adaptive Deduplication technology deduplicates the data into a non-network-facing repository where deduplicated data is stored for longer-term retention, often for weeks, months and years. The combination of a non-network-facing tier (virtual air gap) plus delayed deletes with ExaGrid’s Retention Time-Lock feature, and immutable data objects, guards against the backup data being deleted or encrypted.

Highlights of Q4 2021:

  • Strong competitive win rate at 75%
  • Brought on more than 170 new customers
  • Record revenue in the US, Canada, Latin America, EMEA and APAC
  • 49 six-figure new customer deals
  • 2 seven-figure new customer deals
  • Company remains cash positive over the last 5 quarters
  • More than 3,200 customers protect their data with ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage
  • Won 9 industry awards in the fall of 2021, including:
    • Storage Awards “The Storries XVIII” – Enterprise Backup Hardware Vendor of the Year
    • Storage Awards “The Storries XVIII” – Immutable Storage Company of the Year
    • Network Computing Awards – Company of the Year
    • Network Computing Awards – Bench Tested Product of the Year
    • Network Computing Awards – Storage Product of the Year
    • Network Computing Awards – The Return on Investment award
    • SDC Awards – Vendor Channel Program of the Year
    • SDC Awards – Storage Hardware Innovation of the Year
    • SDC Awards – Storage Company of the Year

ExaGrid Tiered Backup Storage – Built for Backup
“ExaGrid realized that disk is too expensive for longer-term retention, that deduplication in the backup application impedes performance and does not bring enough deduplication, that inline deduplication appliances lower the cost of storage but reduce backup and restore performance, and that the backup window grows as the data grows. ExaGrid determined that customers need to have it all: a front-end-disk cache Landing Zone tier for fast backups and restores, a repository tier for long-term deduplicated data, a scale-out architecture to keep the backup window fixed in length as data grows and eliminates forklift upgrades and planned product obsolescence, and an integrated ransomware recovery solution with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable data objects all in one single integrated approach. ExaGrid’s Tiered Backup Storage is that approach,” said Andrews.

ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a front-end disk-cache Landing Zone, the Performance Tier, which writes data directly to disk for the fastest backups, and restores directly from disk for the fastest restores and VM boots. The long-term retention data is tiered to a deduplicated data repository, the Retention Tier, to reduce the amount of retention storage and resulting cost. This two-tiered approach provides the fastest backup and restore performance with lowest cost storage efficiency.

In addition, ExaGrid provides a scale-out architecture where appliances are simply added as data grows. Each appliance includes processor, memory and network ports, so as data grows, all resources required are available to maintain a fixed-length backup window. This scale-out storage approach eliminates expensive forklift upgrades, and allows for mixing appliances of different sizes and models in the same scale-out system, which eliminates product obsolescence while protecting IT investments up front and over time.

About ExaGrid
ExaGrid provides Tiered Backup Storage with a unique disk-cache Landing Zone, long-term retention repository, and scale-out architecture. ExaGrid’s Landing Zone provides for the fastest backups, restores, and instant VM recoveries. The retention repository offers the lowest cost for long-term retention. ExaGrid’s scale-out architecture includes full appliances and ensures a fixed-length backup window as data grows, eliminating expensive forklift upgrades and product obsolescence. ExaGrid offers the only two-tiered backup storage approach with a non-network-facing tier, delayed deletes, and immutable objects to recover from ransomware attacks.

New executive appointment to provide industry expertise and guidance as FalconStor expands its presence and partnerships in the hybrid cloud data protection market

AUSTIN, TX – January 11, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — FalconStor Software, Inc. (OTCQB: FALC), the trusted data protection software leader modernizing disaster recovery and backup operations for the hybrid cloud world, today announced that former IBM executive Doug Balog has joined its advisory board. In this capacity, Balog will provide strategic guidance as the company expands its commitment to the hybrid cloud community and its focus on managed service provider (MSP) partnerships.

Balog spent more than 35 years at IBM as a senior executive running IBM’s units responsible for the innovation, sales and growth of their storage, server and mainframe businesses. In these roles, he worked with some of IBM’s largest customers and channel partners, including MSPs, to architect and deploy enterprise IT infrastructure solutions increasingly designed for the hybrid cloud.

“I am pleased to join forces with FalconStor, a data protection leader steeped in deep technical expertise across the data management challenges that I saw within the customer IT and MSP community,” said Doug Balog. “I am impressed by the progress the team has made in bringing this expertise to the hybrid cloud data protection market and by the commitment it is making to the MSP community to help make customers and partners successful technically and financially. Particularly, IBM i customers and MSPs would seem to benefit materially from FalconStor’s deep technology integration with the IBM i platform for deduplication, backup, replication and data migration to the cloud.”

“We announced our initial capabilities for cloud-enabled backup-as-a-service in 2020 and our commitment to the managed service provider community in 2021,” said Todd Brooks, CEO of FalconStor. “The entire team rallied around those fundamental strategic changes, driving a new solution focus, cloud integration, fundamental pricing changes and a new MSP market development program. With Doug’s addition to the team, we are now ready in 2022 to take our efforts to the next level in hybrid cloud data protection with our growing network of MSPs,” said Todd Brooks, FalconStor CEO.

Some of the company’s technological advances and recent business decisions that continue to be a strong selling point for both MSPs and enterprises are:

  • Cloud Enabled: FalconStor’s core replication technology, long-used to replicate from one enterprise data center to another for active protection, now supports replication to private cloud deployments, often managed by MSPs and the leading public cloud providers.
  • Multitenant Management: FalconStor’s StorSight user experience is built for multitenancy, a fundamental ingredient in addressing Backup-as-a-Service requirements for MSPs managing hundreds of customers, enabling backup automation, billing and chargeback.
  • Security: FalconStor’s core encryption capabilities for data in-flight and at-rest allow MSPs to keep tight control over their customers’ data in the face of ransomware attacks and make cloud a safe option for long-term data retention.
  • Subscription Pricing: FalconStor unveiled new monthly subscription pricing based on the number of customer tenants an MSP serves, rather than time-honored data capacity pricing. With FalconStor’s leading data reduction technologies, MSPs can drive highly profitable and valuable hybrid cloud data protection service lines.

Balog currently serves as board member, advisor and investor to several technology companies in hybrid cloud, data protection, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence/machine learning.

About FalconStor
FalconStor is the trusted data protection software leader modernizing disaster recovery and backup operations for the hybrid cloud world. The company enables enterprise customers and managed service providers to secure, migrate, and protect their data while reducing data storage and long-term retention costs by up to 95 percent.

From key acquisitions to new regional data centers, the company has continued to put its customers’ needs first—and has seen expansive growth as a result

MIAMI, FL – Jan. 10, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Kaseya®, the leading provider of IT and security management solutions for managed service providers (MSPs) and small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today that the company grew by over 25%. Its continued revenue growth was driven by multiple strategic acquisitions and a continued focus on helping MSPs expand their businesses through sales and marketing enablement.

As MSPs and internal IT teams adjusted to new hybrid and remote work environments, Kaseya provided hundreds of deep workflow integrations that allowed IT professionals to work more efficiently and overcome business challenges around cybersecurity and compliance that grew in complexity throughout 2021.

“While 2021 saw economic recovery in certain parts of the world, IT professionals still faced incredible uncertainty as they navigated ever-evolving IT environments on budgets that continue to be stretched by a growing volume of new technologies,” said Fred Voccola, CEO of Kaseya. “We made two acquisitions that addressed key pain points for MSPs and SMBs, launched our Connect IT Community and released innovative new products like VulScan—all with a focus on helping our customers eliminate wasted time and stretch their budgets further. The IT Complete suite continues to be the gold standard for IT professionals in need of solutions that are truly automated, secure and priced right to ensure maximum profitability.”

The Kaseya family will continue to grow in 2022, with plans for over 1,300 new hires worldwide across its Miami headquarters as well as its offices in Dublin, Krakow and Sydney.

Corporate Momentum Milestones

  • Acquisitions of RocketCyber and TruMethods further strengthened Kaseya’s IT Complete suite of solutions. In February 2021, Kaseya acquired managed security operations center (SOC) solution RocketCyber to help its customers cut through the noise and respond to threats across endpoints, networks and cloud attack vectors. Through its integrations with Kaseya’s VSA, BMS and Passly solutions, RocketCyber users can easily deploy the solution across their environment and quickly create relevant incident tickets. In May 2021, Kaseya acquired the MSP industry’s leading business transformation organization TruMethods to allow MSPs to build more strategic relationships with their customers and increase monthly recurring revenue (MRR). Through the myITprocess ™ virtual CIO (vCIO) solution, FormulaWon ™ training and TruPeer ™ groups, MSPs can use proven methods to grow their businesses.
  • Connect IT Global hosted thousands at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Kaseya held its annual Connect IT event in October 2021 with a jam-packed schedule that included keynotes from experts like Kaseya CISO Jason Manar, cybersecurity management sessions and even a few laughs from popular actor Nick Offerman.
  • Kaseya launched the Connect IT Community to allow IT professionals to share best practices across the globe. The Connect IT Community is an online collaboration platform that enables individuals to use Kaseya products more effectively and network with IT professionals around the world.

Austin, TX – January 7, 2022 — / BackupReview.info / — Veeam® Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced that Harte Hanks, a leading global customer-experience company, has chosen Veeam Availability Suite™ and Contour Data Solutions, a premier IT services management company, to improve data protection standardization and governance. Veeam and Contour Data Solutions make it easier to maintain compliance for regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

“Our company helps many of the biggest brands improve their customer experience, and Veeam and Contour Cloud help us be more proficient and efficient,” said Elliott Peterson, CTO, Harte Hanks. “Their reliable, state-of the-art solutions scale with our business.”

Harte Hanks helps companies win attention, build trust and earn loyalty, including Bank of America, GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever, Pfizer, HBO Max, Volvo, Ford, FedEx, Midea, Sony and IBM. By analyzing data, Harte Hanks creates tactical solutions that drive results including digital marketing, direct mail, logistics, sampling, fulfillment and customer care. Protecting data is a top business priority for the company, so as both business and customer requirements became more complex, Harte Hanks needed the right combination of services and technology that would best optimize its backup and recovery operations.

“Our goal was to standardize data protection and optimize IT, but we also wanted to begin leveraging competent third-party managed services so we could focus on innovation and growth for the company,” Peterson said. “We contacted Contour Data Solutions and quickly realized it was a great fit. As a Veeam Cloud & Service Provider (VCSP) partner, they offer scalable, state-of-the-art technology including Contour Cloud to host our IT infrastructure and Veeam® Availability Suite™ to protect our data. We knew we were in the right place.”

Veeam backs up 550 TB across Harte Hanks’ 400 virtual machines (VMs) in Contour Cloud. In total, Veeam backs up nearly 7 PB across 5,000 VMs for Contour Data Solutions and its customers.

“Veeam and Contour make sure our data is protected and available around the clock,” Peterson said. “Data has to be backed up constantly, and it can never be compromised. Our clients work across industries, so their data must comply with requirements like SOX, HIPAA and GDPR.”

Harte Hanks has clients in nearly every industry, including consumer electronics and entertainment. When a large electronics and entertainment firm wanted to generate buzz about its products, Harte Hanks created an integrated marketing campaign using direct mail to drive web traffic, emails to deliver the right product information at the right time, catalog drops and freestanding inserts to engage consumers. When a large entertainment company needed help transitioning its customer base from cable and satellite programming to an online subscription service, Harte Hanks built a cross-channel customer relationship management system that made the transition seamless and easy. In each case, data and the systems supporting it had to be protected and available continuously.

“Our clients trust us with their brands and their customers, and we trust Veeam and Contour Data Solutions with our data and IT infrastructure,” Peterson said.

The Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award recognizes technologies and vendors that have built cloud solutions empowering businesses small or large to remain active and productive under even the most challenging conditions, minimizing lost business opportunities.

With Wasabi hot cloud storage, organizations can store and instantly access an unlimited amount of data at 1/5th the price of the competition with no complex tiers or fees for egress or API requests, removing the complexity of modern data storage with simple, affordable backup and recovery. Data can be accessed exactly when needed, and organizations have more freedom to frequently test their recovery process, identify weak spots, and facilitate improvements to help them prepare in the event of a disaster across a number of endpoints including desktops, laptops, on-prem servers, virtual servers.

Wasabi hot cloud storage is designed with eleven nines (99.999999999%) of object durability, ACL-based user authentication and AES 256 encryption of data at rest, ensuring backed up data remains secure. It also offers Object Lock, an award-winning data feature through which users can set their data to be ‘immutable’ or unable to be altered or deleted by anyone for a set period of time. This added layer of protection maintains the integrity of the data and makes it easily available for the recovery process.

“You can’t recover what you haven’t kept, so maintaining current copies of data and applications is a must for ensuring business continuity in the event of ransomware, human error, or natural disaster. Unfortunately the size and scope of today’s data can make this prohibitively expensive without the right strategy in place,” said David Friend, co-founder and CEO of Wasabi Technologies. “When organizations backup to Wasabi, they have an easy, affordable method of making sure all critical information is replicated—and that it’s secure and immediately available if and when needed. This makes Wasabi ideal for backing up everything from mission-critical databases and applications to high-resolution images and media.”

“I offer congratulations to the winners of the Cloud Computing Backup and Disaster Recovery Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “The winning solutions are enabling organizations to feel confident during regular business, and reassured in stressful situations. I look forward to seeing continued innovation from these award recipients.”

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland – Jan. 5, 2022 — / BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in cyber protection, announced today the appointment of Michael Callahan as its new Chief Marketing Officer. Callahan joins the team with extensive sales and marketing experience, serving in senior leadership roles at companies such as McAfee, HP, and Juniper, and most recently as the Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Cofense.

As Acronis’ Chief Marketing Officer, Callahan will develop Acronis’ global brand position while increasing awareness of the Cyber Protect Cloud Platform. With COVID-19 accelerating digital transformation solutions and the migration to cloud and hybrid solutions, organizations need an effective security solution to stop the always-evolving threats. In addition, Callahan will help expand Acronis’ dedication to nurturing the next group of tech leaders with outreach programs around the world, especially in disadvantaged areas.

His track record of driving impressive growth from the brands he developed excites us for what is to come under his leadership and expertise.”

Callahan is a metrics-driven marketing executive with extensive software-as-a-service (SaaS) security domain experience, serving in leadership roles at McAfee, HP, Firemon and Zimperium, where he effectively managed and led global teams.

2021 was the most successful year in Acronis history, with the Acronis US cloud business growing 77% year-over-year and Acronis Cyber Protect delivering protection to over 750,000 businesses. Callahan will build on the success from 2021, including the $250 million investment from CVC Partners in May of last year to further enhance Acronis’ go-to-market initiatives by expanding its broad partner network of managed service providers (MSPs) to keep the momentum going in 2022.

“I’m very excited to be joining Acronis at a time when the value of our solutions is rapidly gaining traction in the market resulting in exceptionally fast growth that allows us to continue to invest in solutions to our customers’ problems. As the world moves towards a cloud-based digital ecosystem, it’s more important than ever to make sure cybersecurity solutions effectively stop threats so security leaders can protect their organizations,” said Callahan.
