Iron Mountain Introduces Iron Cloud Critical Protection and Recovery to Safeguard High-value Data

Grazed from Iron Mountain

Iron Mountain Incorporated, the global leader in storage and information management services, today announced Iron Mountain Iron Cloud Critical Protection and Recovery (CPR), a managed data protection solution to safeguard and restore critical data, providing confidence in recovery in the event of malicious denial of access attack. Available as part of Iron Mountain's Iron Cloud purpose-built portfolio of cloud-based solutions, Iron Cloud CPR enables organizations to proactively protect vital digital information through secure isolation of their most essential data, providing critical availability of clean data in the event it is jeopardized by a cyberattack. This solution, as part of an enterprise risk containment plan, helps mitigate reputational damage, costs and lost revenue potential from unplanned operational downtime. 

Organizations are applying digital capabilities to processes, products, and assets to improve operational efficiencies, enhance customer value, manage risk, and uncover new revenue opportunities. These digital transformation initiatives generate new types and sources of data increasingly targeted by malicious actors seeking to exploit the unique and highly valuable digital assets found in that data, especially medical and financial records. Today's attacks challenge organizations to find solutions with sufficient protection, full restoration and rapid recovery capabilities to prevent the potential loss of revenue and erosion in brand reputation and company trust. Taken together, these factors have led organizations to a data protection and recovery crossroads, where conventional backup and recovery approaches are insufficient in isolating critical digital assets and enabling restoration following a cyberattack.

The integrated solution provides breakthrough content-level awareness for globally implemented workloads protected by Veeam solutions, including physical storage locations.

"With ever-increasing compliance and security requirements, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), it is no longer realistic to store and protect data in a one-size-fits-all, unclassified manner," said David Siles, vice president of business development at HyTrust. "Enterprises and organizations must understand what they are storing or restoring and treat the content appropriately. With the new integration between HyTrust CloudAdvisor and Veeam cloud data availability solutions, customers can more easily comply with changing and complex requirements."

INFINIDAT Announces Public Cloud and Data Protection Product Lines

Grazed from INFINIDAT

INFINIDAT announced four new products aimed at enterprises seeking to accelerate digital transformation and drive cost out of their IT infrastructure. 

InfiniSync

InfiniSync is a 450 pound, ballistically hardened data bunker appliance that is the world's first solution for zero RPO synchronous data mirroring over virtually infinite distance, with zero latency impact.

"Traditional mission-critical computing requires synchronous mirroring, perhaps from lower Manhattan to a data bunker in northern New Jersey, and then asynchronous mirroring from the bunker to a disaster recovery site in Texas," said Jacob Broido, Chief Product Officer at INFINIDAT. "InfiniSync eliminates the need for the New Jersey data center while ensuring all transactions make it to Texas under every imaginable scenario, including power and network failures and regional and rolling disasters."

InfiniSync will be generally available on April 2, 2018.
