Security has also been strengthened with enhancements, including FIPS-compliant secure communication updates and crypto libraries for customers demanding military-grade encryption.

Arcserve Backup 19 now certifies and adds broad and deep support for the most popular platforms deployed in customer environments. This includes compatibility with Windows Server 2022, Windows Server 2022 Hyper-V, SharePoint Server 2019, Oracle Database 19c on IBM AIX, Solaris and HP-UX, AlmaLinux 8.x, Rocky Linux 8.x, FreeBSD 13.x, macOS Catalina (version 10.15.x), Debian 11.x, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.x for IBM Z (Mainframe), Default Arcserve Backup Database (ASDB) upgraded from Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 2 (SP2) Express to Microsoft SQL Server 2019 Express.

Byron Horn-Botha, business unit head, Arcserve Southern Africa, says, “Tape air-gapping is emerging as the most important ‘last line of defence’ from ransomware attacks. While most vendors don’t handle tape due to its complexity, Arcserve has been leading the market with this technology for decades. This gives us the unique ability to provide customers a complete 3-2-1-1 ransomware defence and recovery solution including on-premises, immutable storage, cloud services and tape backup.”
