Ransomware attacks are on a continuous rise, and it is more important than ever to protect your data from cybercriminals. VM Backup V9 now leverages Immutable Cloud Storage which assures that data cannot be erased, modified, or deleted by anyone for a set time period.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW IN VM BACKUP?
System errors, hardware failures or cyber attacks with viruses, malware or ransomware, are all scenarios that lead to data loss. In 2019, the average cost for server downtime was calculated at being € 719,000, the cost for data loss being € 900,000. It’s therefore a necessity for companies to protect themselves. Hornetsecurity is repeatedly proven to have one of the easiest to use, most robust, and cost effective solutions in the market.
Reduce downtime and data loss: Thanks to Continous Data Protection (CDP) and WAN-optimized replication, your backup files are available in just minutes in the event of a data loss scenario and you can continue working as usual. The solution’s unique Augmented Inline Deduplication also gives you massive savings on your backup storage and dramatically reduces costs.
VM Backup enables customers to protect their data from ransomware by leveraging Immutable Cloud Storage on Azure Blob, Wasabi and Amazon S3. With this, backup data will be tamper-proof and cannot be modified or deleted by any user, including administrators or root users, giving companies an extra layer of data security.
Common data is only transferred to the backup or offsite location ONCE. Unlike most competitors, the service does not handle this post-process so it ensures that only changed data is sent to the customer’s backup repository right away (rather than removing the identical data after the transfer).
Users can simply enter their account details and store their offsite backup copies with their provider of choice. This way, customers can easily make a backup copy of their data direct to Azure, S3 or Wasabi, as well as to a local disk, network path or an Hornetsecurity Offsite Server.
Continuous Data Protection (CDP) allows users to back up virtual Windows machines (VMs) as frequently as every 5 minutes ensuring that, should a data loss scenario occur, only a few minutes of data are lost. This dramatic reduction in data loss saves companies time and money while minimalizing hassle.
Replication enables users to be backed up and running in minimal time should disaster strike. It enables administrators to replicate ongoing changes on their VMs to a remote site and to seamlessly continue working from the replicated VMs should something go wrong with the live VMs.
– Real-time status updates: View live operation activity and backup results as they occur.
– Centrally manage your backups/restores: Start backups and restore VMs, configure Backup Locations, Offsite Locations, and much more.
– Access the portal anywhere: There is no need to use VPNs or to be physically on-site to access local console
Backup Health Monitor proactively monitors the health of the backup storage from the customer to detect any integrity issues with the customers’ backup data. If it finds any issues, it will attempt to repair them automatically by backing up the affected data again during the next backup job.
Encryption of the backups is ensured by means of AES-256 encryption keys (password) configured by the customer. All offsite copies are AES-265 encrypted. For onsite backups (primary), encryption is optional and supported as well.
Users can boot any VM version directly from the backup location without affecting backup integrity.
