Software provider Arcserve and IT security company Sophos have extended their partnership to simplify enterprise security with their new integration for on-premises, cloud and software-as-a-service (SaaS) workloads.
According to Arcserve, the “new integration eliminates the need for disparate solutions by tightly integrating AI-powered cybersecurity with award-winning backup and disaster recovery to protect backups from cyberattacks and data loss.”
The new cloud and SaaS solutions comprise two new offerings. Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365 protects Microsoft Office 365 data from deletion and security threats through cloud-to-cloud backup, while Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos protects cloud-based workloads for unified cloud security, protection, and retention strategies.
“There is an incredible need to integrate security and data protection solutions, especially as we continue to see cybercriminals evolve their tactics and more aggressively target backup data,” said Phil Goodwin, research director at analytics firm IDC. “The integration of these technologies by Arcserve is very timely in helping provide businesses with tools to close security gaps and prevent data loss.”
