Arcserve, LLC, provider in data protection, has recently announced a global alliance with Sophos, provider in network and endpoint security, to provide organizations with dedicated protection for backed up data against cyberthreats.
With this collaboration organizations can now employ the only market solution that integrates anti-ransomware and other threat prevention technologies, such as deep learning AI for both known and unknown malware, and award-winning disaster recovery and high availability capabilities for prevention against data loss. Together, the new solution delivers a multi-layered approach to prevent, protect, and immunize backup data from cyber-attacks.
A report issued by Cybersecurity Ventures predicts the global cost of ransomware to reach $11.5 billion USD in 2019 and $20 billion USD by 2021, with an attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of this year. With cybercriminals continuously taking advantage of enterprises to turn profits, this alliance will provide organizations with a two-pronged approach to cyber-readiness and IT resilience. By combining both cybersecurity and data protection capabilities into single offering, businesses will have a comprehensive solution that fully covers all their infrastructure needs.
The joint solution will be delivered via Arcserve’s Appliance Series, for disaster recovery and application availability. Powered by Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), the Arcserve Appliance Series combines flash-accelerated duplicated storage, robust server processing, and high-speed networking with highly redundant hardware and cloud services.
Arcserve Appliances will integrate Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, endpoint protection with artificial intelligence, to deliver a comprehensive protect-in-depth approach to accelerate data, system and application resiliency.
“Increasingly cybercriminals are targeting backup systems as a way to increase the odds that compromised businesses will make a ransom payment. Having dedicated protection from both malware and the latest exploits ensures the backup data will stand strong against the most advanced threats,” said Francois Depayras, Sophos’ Vice President of OEM Sales and Alliances”.
Oussama El-Hilali, CTO for Arcserve says “As threats become more difficult to combat, this alliance is transformative in the industry, taking our cyber protection to the next level and providing partners with the opportunity to educate customers on the unique benefits of an integrated, two-pronged defense against cybercrime.”
The integrated solution will be available on the newest Arcserve Appliances in October of 2019.
