Continuous data protection

April 2011 Cyber Security

Preserves and protects your business-relevant data assets.

Loophold Security Distribution has announced SonicWALL’s next generation of continuous data protection (CDP) solutions. Built from the ground up with an entirely new architecture, SonicWALL CDP 6.0 automatically preserves and protects business-relevant data assets against loss from file, device, and location-based disasters. With support for Windows, Linux and Mac OS, CDP provides granular, globally enforced policy controls over the entire backup operation.

CDP 6.0 supports Microsoft applications including SQL, Exchange and SharePoint servers, Active Directory and Small Business Servers. Its unmatched flexibility enables IT administrators to dictate what information to backup, what to exclude and how the information should be maintained to adhere to recovery and compliance requirements.

Says Martin Tassev, MD at Loophold Security Distribution, “Today’s businesses require increasingly sophisticated backup and disaster recovery (DR) technology in order to optimise data storage, backup and bandwidth utilisation. We are now able to deliver this to the local market with SonicWALL’s CDP 6.0.

“In addition, SonicWALL further leverages benefits by tightly integrating its solutions, providing optimised functionality and benefits. This is illustrated with the ability to integrate CDP 6.0 with SonicWALL’s global management system (GMS) platform, providing businesses with remote access, distributed backup, centralised reporting as well as monitoring without the need for site-to-site VPN links. The solution significantly reduces time to generate management reports, improves and streamlines operations.”

CDP 6.0 features

The new CDP revolutionises the backup and recovery process for IT organisations. A sophisticated new fileset backup methodology combined with agent-based data de-duplication moves and stores only unique data blocks. This speeds the backup process and optimises bandwidth usage while maintaining total information continuity and the ability to flexibly restore multiple revisions.

The new CDP 6.0 solution has been designed to help IT meet compliance and legal requirements, ensuring that mission-critical intellectual property and compliance data in e-mail and on the network is automatically protected against file, device and location-based disasters that can cause severe data loss.

“Risk management and compliance mandates are issues forcing IT to rethink data protection, data availability, data preservation, and disaster recovery readiness and responsiveness,” says Ken Dang, product manager, CDP at SonicWALL. “SonicWALL CDP 6.0 governs information growth effectively in real time. It scales up to midsize and larger organisations, providing options to preserve, replicate, archive, govern and restore greater amounts of data, across Windows, Mac OS and Linux platforms, and at a lower price than its predecessor devices.”
