Arcserve and Sophos Announce a Strategic Security Alliance

Published On: October 14, 2019Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Arcserve, LLC, a Minnesota-based data protection provider, has announced a global alliance with Sophos to provide dedicated cyberthreat protection for backed up data. Through this collaboration, organizations can integrate 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.

The joint solution will be delivered via Arcserve’s appliance series, which are self-contained appliances for disaster recovery, based on Arcserve’s Unified Data Protection (UDP) solution that combines flash-accelerated deduplicated storage, server processing, networking, and cloud services.

Arcserve appliances will integrate Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, which provides endpoint protection with artificial intelligence.

“Increasingly cybercriminals are targeting backup systems as a way to increase the odds that compromised businesses will make a ransom payment,” said Francois Depayras, Sophos’ vice president of OEM sales and alliances. “Having dedicated protection from both malware and the latest exploits ensures the backup data will stand strong against the most advanced threats.”
