Leading managed hybrid cloud services provider Brightsolid announced its new Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) offering today. Developed in partnership with Druva, the industry’s leading SaaS platform for data resilience, the new offering will enable organisations of all sizes to minimise the risks associated with data loss from disruptions, outages, or disasters.
COVID-19 and remote work has spurred thousands of organisations to migrate to the cloud. However, as organisations expand their digital footprints, data is sprawled across systems and infrastructure, which has increased an organisation’s potential attack surface. Brightsolid’s Backup-as-a-Service, powered by Druva, equips organisations with a unified and secure platform for protecting data regardless of where it’s stored, on physical or virtual workloads or SaaS applications. It requires no additional hardware or software to manage.
The new offering gives organisations comprehensive ransomware protection with air-gapped and immutable backups that prevent threat actors from accessing valuable data and workloads. In addition, backups are stored on malware-resistant architecture that stops ransomware from executing within backup data, protecting organisations from threat actors that are growing in frequency and complexity.
“From launching our cyber security service, Managed Detection and Response, earlier this year, we know that there is an ever-evolving threat landscape targeting business-critical infrastructure, particularly backups, to ensure that their ransomware demands are paid,” said Elaine Maddison, CEO of Brightsolid. “Collaborating with Druva on our new Backup as a Service offering safeguards that data through air-gapped immutable backups, ensuring critical backups are physically separated from affected networks and assets. This gives our customers the peace of mind that they can quickly resume operations in case of a malicious attack or incident, with limited downtime and costs.”
“Cyber threats continue to advance by the day, putting every organisation at risk of an attack,” said Gareth Lush, Senior Director, Partners, EMEA, Druva. “To prepare, enterprises need a holistic solution that can protect, secure, and recover their data immediately. Druva’s proven platform is already helping thousands reduce their cyber risk. Our new partnership with Brightsolid allows us to help even more customers fight off today’s threats with our comprehensive approach.”
