The Beginning of the End of Ransomware

Scalable, Secure Backup Target for Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup for Office 365

Secure data storage for your backups has never been more essential – not only to protect against ransomware and other cyber-attacks, but also to get, keep, and save on cybersecurity insurance coverage.

Cloudian HyperStore provides a proven on-prem backup target for Veeam Availability Suite or Veeam Backup for Office 365 (VBO). At 70% less cost than public cloud, Cloudian is limitlessly scalable, letting you grow without disruption.

Cloudian has the most extensive security certifications and the highest S3 compatibility of any on-prem object storage. With Veeam’s native support of the cloud-standard S3 protocol, including S3 Object Lock data immutability / WORM (write once, read many), Veeam and Cloudian integrate seamlessly.

How the Veeam + Cloudian Data Protection Solution Can Work for You

Cloudian serves as an on-prem storage target for Veeam backup processes with the potential for policy-based capacity expansion to the public cloud.

Object Lock Protects Your Data

Forrester analysts write: “Implementing an immutable file system with underlying WORM storage will make the system watertight from a ransomware protection perspective.”

Cloudian HyperStore protects your data with Object Lock, so it cannot be encrypted by ransomware. HyperStore is hardened by the use of HyperStore Shell (HSH) and RootDisable, securing the solution at the system level, even disabling root access to make the solution impregnable. Similar solutions typically have porous root access leaving system-level breaches possible.

Integrated with Veeam Availability Suite V10, the combination gives you the only on-prem ransomware solution that is tamperproof down to the system level, to offer data immutability that’s SEC17a-4 and Common Criteria certified.

Hear from Veeam’s VP of Enterprise Strategy, Dave Russell, and Cloudian’s CMO, Jon Toor, about why this Object Lock integration is such a game-changer for ransomware protection.

Protect your Microsoft Office 365 Suite with Veeam and Cloudian

ms office 365 backupMicrosoft Office 365 offers geo-redundancy, which protects your data from site or device failure. But it does not replace backup. With geo-redundancy alone, you have limited recovery options if your data is accidentally deleted or maliciously attacked.

Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 (VBO) paired with Cloudian HyperStore provides a cost-effective solution to protect your Office 365 data from accidental deletion, rogue employees, and malware. From VBO, Office 365 backups are stored directly to Cloudian, providing a fast, on-premises disk-based data protection solution.

Solution benefits include:

  • Immediately accessible backup copy secured in your data center
  • Veeam VBO v4 supports S3 API, so Cloudian integration is seamless
  • 70% less cost than traditional solutions
  • Fast RPO/RTO
