Tue, 20th Dec 2022

OpenText Security Solutions has introduced Carbonite Cloud-to-Cloud Backup in Australia and New Zealand, enabling organisations to protect business critical data stored on third-party SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365, Salesforce, Google Workspace, Dropbox or Box.

The new offering provides comprehensive backup and recovery into a local data centre in Sydney to reduce latency issues while meeting data sovereignty and compliance requirements, the company states.

Steve Stavridis, Director APAC at OpenText Security Solutions, says, "2022 has proven to be a cyber turbulent year for companies. Organisations data privacy practices have been challenged, and in turn, we're seeing customers demand stricter mandates on their data. Cloud to cloud backup enables MSPs to offer their customers the ability to backup and restore data at a local level. It ensures the end-user is mitigating data privacy concerns and improving latency."

Only 13% of IT professionals are aware they are responsible for backing up their data on third-party SaaS applications during cloud transformation projects. This highlights an opportunity for channel partners and cloud service providers to help their customers understand the shared responsibility model that will establish stronger data resiliency while adhering to new Australian government cyber legislation, according to OpenText Security Solutions.

Carbonite Cloud-to-Cloud Backup enables quick restore of SaaS data, reducing the impact of data loss. It's intuitive, automated and secure SaaS backup increases cyber resilience while greatly improving recovery time objectives. MSPs will be able to provide their customers with key benefits including unlimited storage and retention, reliable customer support, recovery from any point in time.

OpenText Security Solutions has data centres in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom and United States. The investment and expansion of data centres in the APAC region that are ISO 27001 certified with full redundancy (S3 to Glacier), and HIPAA and GDPR compliant, gives partners and customers the confidence their data is protected.

Stavridis adds, "With the speed in which cyber attacks and technology are evolving, businesses are relying more heavily on service providers to deliver a robust framework for their data to remain resilient.

"Channel partners are realising the security gap and are ensuring they are providing customers with the right measures to protect and restore their data held on third-party SaaS applications. It allows customers to maintain responsibility for their data while being compliant."

OpenText Security Solutions is focused on helping organisations of every size achieve cyber resilience with Webroot Security, Carbonite Data Management, BrightCloud Threat Intelligence, and EnCase Digital Forensics and Threat Response. With a united front of best practices paired with layered solutions, the company states it is committed to preventing, detecting, and restoring small, mid-sized and enterprise business operations in the event of a cybersecurity attack.
