Assured Data Protection Cloud Backup Expert Tips: How Outsourced Disaster Recovery Can Play a Role in Achieving Sustainability Commitments

Sustainability is an issue that all organisations are grappling with and regardless of ever-changing technology landscapes and economic cycles, it has become a constant that needs to be reckoned with. Whether through government regulation, the demands of customers or investor pressure, no organisation is exempt from its direct or indirect impact.

According to the United Nations Environment Program, the technology industry accounts for 2-3 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. It could be argued that it has had an easier ride than other industries to date in terms of accountability, when compared with more obvious carbon emitters such as the energy sector and aviation industries that have been the subject of intense focus. This situation is now changing.

Increasingly, the technology sector is being held to account for its carbon emissions. In response, technology and organisations have made substantial efforts to address the two key emission calcifications over which they have most control: scope one – emissions the organisation is directly responsible for, and scope two – indirect emissions, such as electricity. Many have cut their carbon emissions substantially, allowing them to successfully comply with sustainability directives, as they stand. However, there’s a looming issue that is set to make compliance a much greater challenge.

The challenge of scope three carbon emissions compliance
We’re now starting to see the impact of scope three carbon emissions be felt in the technology sector. That is, all other emissions associated with an organisation’s activities, including its supply chain. While scope three emissions aren’t yet legally enforceable in the US or the UK, they are being widely adopted by large organisations, as legislation is inevitable and there’s a widespread desire to get ahead of the issue. Increasingly the impact of scope three emissions is filtering down to SMEs and SMBs.

Although Disaster Recovery (DR) and backup are only a relatively small part of the overall technology landscape, they are nonetheless important, given that all aspects of IT operations are covered by scope three emissions compliance. Beyond the need to factor them into compliance, many organisations are beginning to realise that in fact DR and backup can actually help them realise their scope three commitments through outsourcing.

Outsourcing disaster recovery managed services
Organisations at the forefront of sustainability are increasingly recognising the value of outsourcing  the DR and backup function to an MSP, which is a very smart and cost effective way to help achieve compliance, because it eliminates the need for data backup via a second site. These sites are costly to operate, don’t always utilise the latest power efficient hardware, and are responsible for significant carbon emissions. Adopting an outsourced approach means scope three compliance is a lot more achievable and manageable.

Some might question whether outsourcing is simply offloading the problem, but that’s not the case. That’s because MSP DR solutions achieve economies of scale by servicing multiple organisations via a shared facility, making them carbon efficient for customers. This approach makes a lot of sense.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is now firmly on the C-level agenda and given the rate at which its scope three component is permeating, it’s very likely we’ll see more organisations adopt outsourced DR services in the near term. Both current and future business for MSPs depends on helping customers and partners achieve ESG compliance. This is an issue that affects everyone and it’s not going away.

Considerations when looking for an MSP
When looking for an MSP capable of delivering a robust DR and backup solution that satisfies ESG and scope three requirements, organisations should place equal value on the technology credentials of the provider. It’s essential to work with a partner who can offer a backup platform that was built from the ground-up with true immutability in mind. Assured Data Protection are experts in the provision of services to a wide variety of organisations across the private and public sectors. Working closely with data security specialists Rubrik, Assured guarantee the rapid restore of data and operations, ensuring the highest levels of DR capability, with the ability to defeat ransomware and other cyber-attacks, which remain an ever-present threat and offer this service in a sustainable way that can help organisations ensure their scope three compliance.

StarWind introduces an affordable backup cloud storage solution for IBM i systems

BEVERLY, MA – April 11, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — StarWind, a leading provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) for Enterprise ROBO, SMB, & Edge, introduces an affordable backup cloud storage for IBM i systems. Seamless integration with an existing tape backup infrastructure is achieved by emulating a tape library (VTL), the one IBM i knows how to deal with. StarWind VTL is a complementary, rather than competitive, solution, where the virtual tape provides an additional local backup copy for better resiliency and faster recovery, with an extra copy offloaded to a cost-effective public cloud. This air-gapped “extra” copy of the backup data, stored in an immutable cloud, serves one more purpose – insurance against ransomware. Amazon AWS, Google GCP, and Microsoft Azure are fully supported as backup destinations, including long term storage like AWS Glacier, Google & Azure Archive. In general, any S3-compatible cloud storage will work.

“Love it or hate it, but tapes are here to stay, and we’re dedicated to improving life with them. We’re thrilled to provide IBM i systems with a money-saving cloud storage they deserve. As of now more organizations can achieve greater cost efficiency, better resiliency to ransomware, more of flexibility, and scalability when it comes to their backup strategy,” said Artem Berman, co-founding partner at StarWind.

Over 40,000 companies in the U.S. alone continue to rely on IBM i systems to power critical operations. Various sectors such as finance, banking, healthcare, manufacturing, telecommunications, logistics, government, and others heavily depend on the non-stop data processing that IBM i systems provide. Traditionally, these environments relied on IBM Backup, Recovery, and Media Services (BRMS) for tape backup processing. Although tapes are rock-solid, deadly-reliable, and provide best bang for the buck, they often present limitations in backup and restore performance. Tapes are evolving over the time, but any StarWind-powered all-flash VTL is always faster in both backup and restore. Cost-efficiency is another consideration, as while tapes are inexpensive, archival object storage in the cloud is even more budget-friendly for long-term data retention. Air-gapped immutability is an important component of ransomware resiliency, a crucial part of a comprehensive ransomware prevention and recovery strategy.

Algenol Biotech chose StarWind VTL because of its reasonable price and required functionality. It was easily integrated into the established backup and archival process of the company without any changes. In addition, StarWind VTL automated and secured offsite backup and archival by eliminating the human process, thereby determining the reliability of the backup process. StarWind VTL provided the much-needed backup solution for the control network of Algenol Biotech’s manufacturing plant, ensuring data protection and integrity, said Tom Ziegler, Network Systems Administrator at Algenol Biotech.

The seamless integration of StarWind VTL into existing BRMS-centric backup infrastructures enables organizations to introduce a disk & flash-based backup tier, which significantly improves backup and, especially, restore performance. Additionally, the built-in cloud storage tier enables the replication of backup and archive data to Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, and other cloud storage providers, allowing to cut down the long-term data retention costs. This approach not only boosts performance and cuts operational expenses but also capitalizes on existing hardware and backup processes, optimizing overall IT efficiency without duplicating efforts.

New locations enable Keepit and partners to guarantee data storage solution that complies with local Swiss laws and regulations

COPENHAGEN, Denmark – April 10, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Keepit, the market leader in cloud backup and recovery and provider of the world’s only vendor-independent cloud for SaaS data protection, today announces the opening of its first two data centers in Switzerland. Keepit is partnering with Equinix – one of the world’s leading green digital infrastructure companies – to operate the data centers. The new locations will enable Keepit to offer a data storage solution that complies with Swiss laws and regulations, for businesses inside and outside Switzerland.

“Our superior data center strategy enables Keepit’s customers to instantly recover lost or compromised data,” says Jakob Østergaard, CTO of Keepit. “Equinix data centers are known worldwide for their excellent security standards. With each site holding full copies of user data – with two mirrored physical locations – our customers can be assured that their data is always available, regardless of the status of their SaaS provider. Through this infrastructure, Keepit can guarantee that all customer data remains in place without transferring middleware to servers outside the regions. We are proud to be the first and only provider that can make this claim.”

As part of the steady growth in the space of Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) and data recovery, Keepit has decided to invest in the new Swiss data centers. Due to the exponential increase in data volume – driven by networked technologies and digitalization – the need for secure and data protection-compliant backup solutions is also increasing. Keepit also has data centers in Germany, Denmark, UK, US, Canada and Australia.

The opening of the data centers underscores Keepit’s commitment to providing the fastest, most secure and efficient service to its growing customer base and partner network in Switzerland. The new locations will enable Keepit to offer locally stored seamless, low-latency data backup and recovery services for leading SaaS platforms such as Microsoft 365, Entra ID, Azure DevOps, Power Platform, Dynamics 365, Google Workspace, Salesforce and Zendesk.

Keepit’s unique infrastructure consists of multiple separate, mirrored data centers in each region, with each center operating in active-active mode; this means that data is continuously replicated between centers. In the event of a single system failure, or even in the unlikely event of the loss of an entire data center, the operation of the platform remains unaffected. Keepit customers’ data is therefore always available and can be restored at any time.

Keepit is working with Swiss IT consultancy firm Joker IT on this project. Joker IT considers Keepit’s new data centers a game changer for their Swiss customers who can now store their data locally, in compliance with Swiss regulations.

Yannic Graber, founder of Joker IT and Microsoft MVP, says: “With Keepit’s launch of Swiss data centers and with our expertise, we’re bringing the pinnacle of data privacy and compliance right to the heart of Switzerland. Together, we’re dedicated to empowering our customers with a cutting-edge SaaS backup solution that not only meets but exceeds the Swiss standards for digital workplace security.”

About Keepit
Keepit provides next-level SaaS data protection for companies with data stored in the cloud. Keepit’s vendor-independent cloud dedicated to SaaS data protection is based on a blockchain-verified solution. Keepit protects data in key business applications including Microsoft 365, Microsoft Azure AD, Google, and Salesforce. Headquartered in Copenhagen with offices and data centers globally, Keepit is trusted by over ten thousand companies worldwide to protect and manage their cloud data.

The industry’s first searchable active archive leverages AI recognition to bring structure to unstructured data, enabling businesses to put their content to work

BOSTON, MA – April 09, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Wasabi Technologies, the hot cloud storage company, today introduced Wasabi AiR™, the industry’s first AI-enabled intelligent media storage. Wasabi AiR combines Wasabi’s high-performance, low-cost object storage with advanced AI metadata auto-tagging and multilingual searchable speech-to-text transcription. Video files uploaded to Wasabi AiR are immediately analyzed and a second-by-second metadata index is created, enabling users to quickly find what they are looking for. Wasabi AiR greatly reduces the cost of metadata creation: with Wasabi AiR, customers pay only for the storage. There is no additional charge for use of the AI.

In January, Wasabi announced its acquisition of Curio AI, a state-of-the-art AI platform designed specifically to analyze and index large video archives. Now users simply upload their video files to Wasabi AiR storage and the AI automatically goes to work generating a rich second-by-second metadata index. Wasabi AiR uses facial recognition, searchable speech-to-text, multi-lingual translation, speaker recognition, optical text recognition, logo identification, and sounds recognition with unparalleled accuracy. Video archives currently stored on tape can be uploaded to Wasabi AiR storage and formerly “dead” content can become a new source of revenue and user engagement.

Wasabi AiR is purpose-built for use cases including:

  • Post-production: Quickly find and assemble video for news packages, highlight reels, social media content and more in real time to enable production teams to focus on creativity without being bogged down searching for content
  • Sponsorship and marketing ROI: Find logos for sponsorship attribution with ease for ROI analysis
  • Geo-diversity: Tailor content to specifically meet the requirements of geo-diverse audiences

“Wasabi AiR introduces a solution to a persistent 25-year-old challenge, combining AI-driven search capabilities with high-performance cloud storage,” said Dave McCarthy, research vice president at IDC. “This marks a transformative shift in media management, offering efficiency and accessibility for businesses dealing with massive unstructured data. Wasabi AiR represents a significant advancement in tackling the longstanding issue of managing extensive data archives, within a substantial market for intelligent media storage solutions.”

“Why move to the cloud if you still can’t find anything?” said David Friend, co-founder and chief executive officer, Wasabi Technologies. “Object storage without metadata is like a library without a catalog. Wasabi AiR works right out of the box and it’s as simple to use as popular search engines. For example, if it finds a face that it doesn’t recognize, it asks ‘Who is this?’ Using a simple UI, the user can train their own models. You can have tens of thousands of hours of video, and Wasabi AiR will take you right to the moment you are looking for. And you can search as much as you want – we only charge for the storage.”

Transformative Price Predictability and Performance Accuracy
Media organizations are operating under tighter deadlines and narrower profit margins and are looking for ways to speed production workflows while controlling costs. Wasabi AiR’s inexpensive, capacity-based pricing allows users the freedom to work with their content without being penalized with unpredictable fees for AI analysis, egress, or API requests, at a price up to 80% less than competitors. Both source files and metadata are owned exclusively by each customer – Wasabi never uses our customer’s proprietary data to train models that others can use. Files and metadata are secure and protected from ransomware, disasters or accidental deletions by Wasabi’s immutable storage and unique multi-user authentication.

“Wasabi AiR significantly reduces our manual efforts due to its seamless use of AI recognition technology to identify, organize and categorize files,” said Drew Crisp, Senior Vice-President of Digital at Liverpool Football Club. “At the club we handle extensive media content, and so this enhanced efficiency could really help us to locate specific content quickly and accurately within our archive, and create new content streams quickly, empowering our creativity and innovation. Wasabi AiR transcends mere storage; it will become another key to unlocking the full potential of our content.”

  • Wasabi AiR is available this quarter. Please visit here or stop by the Wasabi booth SL8117 at NAB April 14-17 for a demo or book a meeting to learn more about how Wasabi cloud storage can enhance media workflows

About Wasabi Technologies
Recognized as one of the technology industry’s fasting growing companies, Wasabi is on a mission to store the world’s data by making cloud storage affordable, predictable and secure. With Wasabi, visionary companies gain the freedom to use their data whenever they like without being hit with unpredictable fees or vendor lock-in. Instead, they’re free to build best-of-breed solutions with the industry’s fastest-growing ecosystem of independent cloud application partners. Customers and partners all over the world trust Wasabi to help them put their data to work so they can unlock their full potential. Visit wasabi.com to learn more.

  • Rubrik Threat Hunting is designed to accelerate safe recovery by determining the initial point, scope, and time of infection

  • Rubrik Security Cloud – Government enhancements now include protection of new workloads, advanced access control measures, and additions to Data Threat Analytics

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 10, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — As government agencies increasingly fall victim to catastrophic cyberattacks, Rubrik, the Zero Trust Data Security™ Company, announces Rubrik Threat Hunting is now available to Rubrik Security Cloud – Government customers. Rubrik Threat Hunting empowers federal, state, and educational institutions to prevent malware reinfection with insights into the initial point, scope, and time of infection.

In the event of a malicious cyber event such as ransomware, speed is paramount to recovery and remediation. But as data continues to rapidly surge and sprawl across SaaS, cloud, and on-premises, organizations struggle to identify what systems were first affected before they can surgically and rapidly restore business continuity, without the risk of reinfection.

According to the most recent Rubrik Zero Labs State of Data Security report, 66% of IT and security leaders surveyed believe their organization’s current data growth is outpacing their ability to secure this data and manage risk. This can lead to delays in identifying the chronology of a cyberattack, and further delay overall incident response.

“Imagine recovering from a cyberattack, only to find out that your organization has accidentally reintroduced the malware back into the system. After the costly downtime, psychological impact, and reputational damage — you’re back at square one,” said Anneka Gupta, Chief Product Officer at Rubrik. “Pinpointing the point, scope, and time of the infection can be nearly impossible without the ability to analyze the history of data for indicators of compromise. Rubrik Threat Hunting provides this deep level of intelligence, designed to enable federal and state governments to be confident in their cyber recovery.”

Find Malware and Avoid Reinfection with Rubrik Threat Hunting
Now with Rubrik Threat Hunting, government entities can directly scan their backups for indicators of compromise, including ransomware. With this added intelligence, organizations can more accurately identify the last known clean copy of data in order to prevent reinfection during and after recovery. This allows organizations to verify the integrity of backups and other assets before restoration, and thereby adhere to The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)’s recently updated Cybersecurity Framework guidance as part of its Incident Recovery Plan Execution (RC.RP).

New Workloads and Enhancements to Data Threat Analytics and Data Protection
Rubrik also announces additional enhancements to Rubrik Security Cloud – Government, including:

Data Threat Analytics:

  • VM encryption detection: Receive anomaly alerts for VM-level encryption activity, quickly assess the blast radius, and recover from such attacks.
  • Anomaly Detection for Nutanix AHV and Microsoft Hyper-V: Assess the cyberattack blast radius and identify malicious activity, now available for two new workloads.

Data Protection:

  • Quorum authorization: Enforce the requirement of getting quorum approvals for performing data-modifying actions in Rubrik Security Cloud – Government.
  • Granular control over password complexity rules for local users: Set policies in Rubrik Security Cloud – Government that ensure users set strong, complex passwords and prevent password reuse.

Protection of New Workloads:

  • IBM Db2 protection: Automatically discover and protect Db2 databases while unifying data protection with Rubrik Security Cloud – Government. Perform restore operations with your existing Db2 tools and processes.
  • Microsoft Active Directory: Ensure the data users and applications need to authenticate and enforce access controls are readily available and quickly recoverable. Automatically discover and protect Active Directory data and support recovery of complete domain/domain controllers and individual objects.

Integration:

  • Zscaler DLP integration: Discover and classify sensitive data out-of-band from production systems to more effectively prevent the loss of critical business data and double extortion ransomware.

To date, Rubrik Security Cloud – Government has achieved:

Rubrik has a long history of securing data for federal, state, local governments and educational institutions. Hundreds of state and local governments nationwide rely on Rubrik, including the Lewis County Public Utility DistrictSan Joaquin County, and South Louisiana Community College.

It consists of 10 physical servers and 35 virtual machines, which store various applications, software, and demo labs. VM backup and recovery are extremely important as the company stores a large volume of data that belongs to their customers as well as their own product.

Not so long ago, the team at LAB Technologies was using VM snapshots instead of proper backups and were manually copying files. One day, they were shocked to find out that all the data had been scripted, and all the backups disappeared. The task of bringing everything back online and making systems available was daunting. Over four days, their systems were down. This had major repercussions on the company.

After that incident, the IT team decided to investigate dedicated backup solutions for VMware to improve their infrastructure’s resilience and recovery reliability. NAKIVO Backup & Replication was the top choice for the solution’s affordable pricing, user-friendly web interface, and excellent VM backup and recovery performance.

NAKIVO Backup & Replication can be easily deployed in a VMware environment, with the first backup job ready to run within minutes after installation and configuration. The product offers flexible deployment options on NAS devices, on Windows/Linux, as well as a VMware virtual appliance.

“Installation was pretty easy and completed within an hour,” says Archil Ivanishvili, Junior Infrastructure Solution Architect at LAB Technologies. “Firstly, when we started the installation, we did not use or read the user guide because the web interface was simple and user-friendly. Now, we installed NAKIVO Backup & Replication directly on a VM into our servers, and are using a Transporter that is connected to our QNAP NAS storage.”

NAKIVO Backup & Replication provides incremental, application-consistent backups using VMware’s Changed Block Tracking (CBT) technology for faster tracking of changed blocks of data. Moreover, the Global Data Deduplication feature optimizes storage usage and further reduces costs.

“We needed to back up 1.2 TB of data, and the backup took only 30 minutes to complete. We are using incremental backup every day and full backup once a week,” says Archil. “Global data deduplication and compression are also excellent, as the features helped us to save up to 56% of our storage space.”

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication also really helped us save time by using the job scheduler, which is amazing and easy to use. We can schedule incremental backups every day and full backups once a week, as the automation of this process is extremely convenient with NAKIVO,” says Archil.

In terms of recovery, NAKIVO Backup & Replication offers instant VM recovery and instant granular recovery. “We managed to recover all the deleted files at once with ease. It is critical for our company to be able to recover information quickly and reliably, “ says Archil.

NAKIVO Monitoring for VMware is included in the solution and allows LAB technologies to have complete visibility into their infrastructure and optimize performance while resolving issues proactively. The functionality allows customization of alerts, report generation, and metrics monitoring in real time.

“I enjoy VMware monitoring functionality the most as the feature provides all the necessary information I need to proactively monitor the health of our environment. We configure alerts to quickly detect suspicious activities in the environment, and we can also view different kinds of reports,” says Archil.

By selecting NAKIVO Backup & Replication as their preferred VM backup solution, LAB Technologies improved the performance of VM backup, saved storage space, and gained visibility into the health of their infrastructure. The solution also helped automate the process of scheduling and running backup jobs and simplified recovering VMs and individual files.

“NAKIVO Backup & Replication is pretty much our first backup solution, as previously, we were backing up files manually. The software saved time for us by 50%,” says Archil. “The fact that NAKIVO Backup & Replication is user-friendly and easy to use makes the solution perfect in my eyes. Even a non-IT guy can manage backup and recovery jobs without any extra help. The software is reliable and provides amazing support.”

– Further Strengthens Confidence in Secure Cloud Data Storage

– Strategic Collaboration to Reduce Risks for Enterprise Data Posed by Cyber Criminals

SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 09, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Cohesity, a leader in AI-powered data security and management, today announced it is collaborating with Intel to bring Intel’s confidential computing capabilities to the Cohesity Data Cloud. Leveraged with Fort Knox, Cohesity’s industry-leading cyber vault service, this data-in-use encryption innovation will be the first of its kind in the data management industry.

Together, Cohesity and Intel are solving one of the most pressing cybersecurity challenges for CIOs. Traditionally, options have been limited for protecting data in use while it is actively processed in memory, which can leave data unencrypted and vulnerable to insider attacks. Confidential computing enabled by Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX) will support Cohesity customers to reduce the risk posed by potential bad actors accessing data while it is being processed in main memory. This is especially critical for highly regulated industries like financial institutions, healthcare, and government.

Cohesity’s flagship platform, Cohesity Data Cloud, has long included many proven and cutting-edge technologies to help the world’s largest organizations manage and secure their most critical data from cyber criminals. Cohesity and Intel are joining forces to reduce customers’ risk of cyber threat by:

  • Creating a unique solution that will protect encryption keys that secure customer data in a hardware-secured environment leveraging Intel SGX for confidential computing in the cloud.
  • This solution dramatically reduces the risk posed by data exfiltration, as the data is not viewable or downloadable by any privileged accounts when the data is being processed in memory as it is encrypted.
  • Providing a way for Cohesity customers to verify that their Intel SGX is legitimate by using Intel® Trust Authority, which has the latest patches and only runs the dedicated Cohesity application before extracting the data encryption key.

“We are relentlessly focused on innovation that furthers our mission: To protect, secure, and provide insights into the world’s data. Collaborations with the biggest and most trusted names in tech, like Intel, are the reason why the largest global enterprises rely on us to strengthen their business resilience,” said Sanjay Poonen, CEO and President of Cohesity. “With Intel SGX, Intel Trust Authority, and confidential computing, our customers will benefit from reduced risk and increased security in cloud environments, allowing them to focus on what really matters, their business.”

“Intel is a pioneer and leader in data center confidential computing technologies, enabling customers, especially those handling sensitive or highly regulated data, to address their needs of confidentiality, integrity, and attestation for their workloads,” said Greg Lavender, executive vice president and chief technology officer at Intel Corporation. “Cohesity’s adoption of our technology reflects the growing customer need to protect critical data in the cloud and advances our common goal of delivering a secure computing environment combined with the trust customers expect.”

Read more about how Intel and Cohesity use confidential computing to protect secondary data in this blog — https://community.intel.com/t5/Blogs/Products-and-Solutions/Security/How-Intel-and-Cohesity-Use-Confidential-Computing-to-Protect/post/1587486

Cohesity at Intel Vision 2024
As a Bronze sponsor, Cohesity will host Intel Vision 2024 attendees in the Experience Lounge, booth number 110. There, they can learn more about Cohesity’s AI-powered data management and protection and cyber resilience solutions. The booth will feature a demonstration of confidential computing enabled by Intel SGX in the Cohesity Data Cloud. Kit Beall, chief revenue officer, Cohesity, will also participate in a panel discussion: “Intel Edge Platform: Enable Current & Future IoT Infrastructure for Edge AI,” April 9, 2024, 12:30 – 1:00 pm MT, in the Mesquite conference room.

About Cohesity
Cohesity is a leader in AI-powered data security and management. Aided by an extensive ecosystem of partners, Cohesity makes it easier to secure, protect, manage, and get value from data – across the data center, edge, and cloud. Cohesity helps organizations defend against cybersecurity threats with comprehensive data security and management capabilities, including immutable backup snapshots, AI-based threat detection, monitoring for malicious behavior, and rapid recovery at scale. Cohesity solutions can be delivered as a service, self-managed, or provided by a Cohesity-powered partner. Cohesity is headquartered in San Jose, CA, and is trusted by the world’s largest enterprises, including 44 of the Fortune 100.

Panzura Detect and Rescue offers near real-time ransomware threat detection and expert-guided rapid recovery, allowing businesses to take a proactive stance against the mounting threat of ransomware

SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 9, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — Panzura, LLC (“Panzura”), a leading provider of hybrid multi-cloud data management solutions, today announced the general availability of Panzura Detect and Rescue. This solution offers near real-time ransomware detection capabilities, enabling businesses to take a more proactive stance against increasing ransomware threats. By uniquely combining powerful, AI-infused detection software with expert-guided recovery, Panzura Detect and Rescue adds layers of ransomware resilience to the company’s market-leading hybrid cloud data platform, Panzura CloudFS. In the event of a ransomware breach, average recovery time is slashed from multiple days to a mere hours, significantly mitigating the risk associated with ransomware incidents.

The launch of Panzura Detect and Rescue comes at a time when the ransomware threat is greater than ever. According to a Q3 2023 Global Ransomware Report from Corvus Insurance, ransomware attacks saw a 95% increase between 2022 and 2023, and Sophos estimates that two-thirds of organizations globally are now directly impacted by ransomware threats each year. Nearly a third (32%) of these companies pay ransom funds to recover their data.

The average time it takes for organizations to recover from a ransomware attack and get back to business as usual is 21 days, but it can often take much longer. With Panzura Detect and Rescue, suspicious behavior and patterns trigger automated alerts and interdiction within minutes, containing the risk while slashing the time to intervention and remediation. This helps organizations evolve robust passive protection — via the immutable data storage provided by Panzura CloudFS — into dynamic, active protection.

“When it comes to ransomware recovery, time really is money,” said Dan Waldschmidt, CEO, Panzura. “The speed at which organizations can neutralize and recover from a ransomware threat is absolutely critical to any data protection strategy. Panzura Detect and Rescue applies machine learning to take roughly 12 billion data snapshots on any given day, giving us an incredibly accurate benchmark from which to identify anomalous patterns and potential threats.”

Ransomware now makes up nearly a quarter of all breaches, with enterprise storage systems being a prime target given the masses of valuable unstructured data they hold. Panzura Detect and Rescue provides unrivaled resilience against all known — and unknown — threat families by layering active detection on top of Panzura’s innovative file storage architecture to deliver AI-infused ransomware resilience through a combination of cloud-native software and expert assistance.

Dan continued, “Moving forward, organizations must utilize both robust, immutable protection, as well as added layers of resilience like Panzura Detect and Rescue, which improves ransomware monitoring, delivers real-time alerts, and can dramatically reduce any downtime resulting from the threat of ransomware.”

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) also advocates that Infrastructure & Operations teams within organizations take an “active defense” approach to cybersecurity, developing synchronized, real-time capabilities to discover, detect, analyze, and mitigate threats and vulnerabilities. In line with NIST guidelines in its new Cybersecurity Framework, Panzura Detect and Rescue is key to helping businesses identify, detect, respond, and recover from cyberattacks at unparalleled speed.

“To date, no organization that followed Panzura’s best practices guidance has lost data to ransomware while using Panzura CloudFS,” commented Don Foster, Chief Customer Officer, Panzura. “The launch of Panzura Detect and Rescue provides our customers’ active monitoring for their Panzura CloudFS environment, doubling down on their ability to detect and contain an attack at a time when businesses are looking for intelligent ways to provide new levels of resilience to their sensitive data.”

Panzura, a leading innovator in global file systems and hybrid cloud data management, helps distributed organizations increase productivity by optimizing digital asset visibility, access, sharing, and storage costs.

ExaGrid continues to have a 70% competitive win rate replacing primary storage behind the backup application as well as deduplication appliances such as Dell Data Domain, HPE StoreOnce and Veritas NetBackup Storage Appliances. ExaGrid’s customer retention rate is over 95%, and 99% are on maintenance and support. These are two industry-leading customer success metrics. Our business is strong in North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East and we are putting an increased focus on the Asia Pacific region,” said Bill Andrews, President and CEO of ExaGrid.

“Years ago, ExaGrid realized that no vendor was building storage specifically for backup, as they were all selling primary storage products as backup storage targets, which is expensive, or they were selling inline deduplication appliances, which are slow for backups and restores and result in costly forklift upgrades. Backup storage has unique needs, due to large backup jobs, incrementals, synthetic fulls, backup rotation, long-term retention, and many other aspects that make backup storage different than primary storage. ExaGrid’s unique Tiered Backup Storage was built specifically to improve backup performance, restore performance, scalability as data grows, security, ransomware recovery, disaster recovery, and improve the economics of backup, with low costs up front and over time,” said Andrews. “Primary storage is not as fast for large backup jobs, is typically not scalable, is very expensive for longer-term retention, and it is network-facing, making it vulnerable to security attacks. Inline deduplication appliances are slow for backups, slow for restores, are not scalable, and are also network-facing making them vulnerable to security attacks.

“ExaGrid prides itself on having a highly differentiated product that just works, does what we say it does, is sized properly, is well supported, and just gets the job done. We can back up these claims with our 95% net customer retention, NPS score of +81, and the fact that 94% of our customers have our Retention Time-Lock for Ransomware Recovery feature turned on, and 99% of our customers are on our yearly maintenance and support plan,” said Andrews.

Highlights of Q1 2024:

  • Shipped new 2U EX84 and EX189 appliance models, greatly reducing rack space usage
  • 13th consecutive quarter of Cash, EBITDA, and P&L positive operations
  • Grew sales leadership team:
    • Appointed Sam Elbeck as Vice President of Americas Sales and Channel Partners
    • Appointed Rohan Cook as Area Vice President of APAC Sales
  • Gained recognition in industry publications:
    • EX189 appliance has been recognized as a TOP 5 backup target in the 2024-25 DCIG TOP 5 2PB+ Cyber Secure Backup Target Global Edition Report
    • EX18 appliance named a TOP 5 backup target in the 2024-25 DCIG TOP 5 Sub-2PB Cyber Secure Backup Target Global Edition Report
    • ExaGrid Reseller Partner Program earned 5-Star Award in the 2024 CRN® Partner Program Guide

StarWind VTL: Cloud Storage for IBM i Systems

Beverly, MA – April 05, 2024 — / BackupReview.info / — StarWind, a leading provider of hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) for Enterprise ROBO, SMB, & Edge, introduces an affordable backup cloud storage for IBM i systems. Seamless integration with an existing tape backup infrastructure is achieved by emulating a tape library (VTL), the one IBM i knows how to deal with. StarWind VTL is a complementary, rather than competitive, solution, where the virtual tape provides an additional local backup copy for better resiliency and faster recovery, with an extra copy offloaded to a cost-effective public cloud. This air-gapped “extra” copy of the backup data, stored in an immutable cloud, serves one more purpose – insurance against ransomware. Amazon AWS, Google GCP, and Microsoft Azure are fully supported as backup destinations, including long term storage like AWS Glacier, Google & Azure Archive. In general, any S3-compatible cloud storage will work.

“Love it or hate it, but tapes are here to stay, and we’re dedicated to improving life with them. We’re thrilled to provide IBM i systems with a money-saving cloud storage they deserve. As of now more organizations can achieve greater cost efficiency, better resiliency to ransomware, more of flexibility, and scalability when it comes to their backup strategy,” said Artem Berman, co-founding partner at StarWind.

Over 40,000 companies in the U.S. alone continue to rely on IBM i systems to power critical operations. Various sectors such as finance, banking, healthcare, manufacturing, telecommunications, logistics, government, and others heavily depend on the non-stop data processing that IBM i systems provide. Traditionally, these environments relied on IBM Backup, Recovery, and Media Services (BRMS) for tape backup processing. Although tapes are rock-solid, deadly-reliable, and provide best bang for the buck, they often present limitations in backup and restore performance. Tapes are evolving over the time, but any StarWind-powered all-flash VTL is always faster in both backup and restore. Cost-efficiency is another consideration, as while tapes are inexpensive, archival object storage in the cloud is even more budget-friendly for long-term data retention. Air-gapped immutability is an important component of ransomware resiliency, a crucial part of a comprehensive ransomware prevention and recovery strategy.

“Algenol Biotech chose StarWind VTL because of its reasonable price and required functionality. It was easily integrated into the established backup and archival process of the company without any changes. In addition, StarWind VTL automated and secured offsite backup and archival by eliminating the human process, thereby determining the reliability of the backup process. StarWind VTL provided the much-needed backup solution for the control network of Algenol Biotech’s manufacturing plant, ensuring data protection and integrity,” said Tom Ziegler, Network Systems Administrator at Algenol Biotech.

The seamless integration of StarWind VTL into existing BRMS-centric backup infrastructures enables organizations to introduce a disk & flash-based backup tier, which significantly improves backup and, especially, restore performance. Additionally, the built-in cloud storage tier enables the replication of backup and archive data to Amazon AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Wasabi, Backblaze B2, and other cloud storage providers, allowing to cut down the long-term data retention costs. This approach not only boosts performance and cuts operational expenses but also capitalizes on existing hardware and backup processes, optimizing overall IT efficiency without duplicating efforts.

About StarWind
Since 2008, StarWind has granted customers the ability to run their mission-critical applications with maximum performance and uptime, all without breaking the bank. StarWind has earned its reputation and trust of over 63,800 businesses of various sizes worldwide, thanks to its commitment to the reliability of its products and their exceptional ease of use, resulting in close to 100% customer satisfaction.
