Barracuda Networks Inc. has announced a platform refresh for its Barracuda Backup product portfolio of data protection solutions.
The new Barracuda Backup appliances provide expanded capacity for physical appliance models, by as much as 100 percent more capacity on entry-level systems. As part of the update, the appliances now include performance updates that help customers back up, replicate, and restore data at a faster rate. Additionally, 10 Gigabit Ethernet connections are now included with the Barracuda Backup 690, 790, and 890 appliances for a faster data transfer.
Barracuda Backup also automatically creates updated backups as files are revised, and duplicates them to the Barracuda cloud. If criminals encrypt files with ransomware, once the malware is eliminated, the encrypted files can be deleted and then restored from a recent backup file.
“Performance is key in today’s age of rampant ransomware attacks, where an efficient data protection process is more critical than ever,” says Rod Mathews, senior vice president and general manager, Data Protection at Barracuda. “Even with the best multi-layered security defense, having a recovery plan in place could be the only way to recover from these attacks without having to pay a ransom in order to restore data.”
Barracuda Backup is available as a physical appliance, as software in the form of a virtual appliance, and as a cloud service, all centrally managed from the same web-based user interface. For more information, visit https://www.barracuda.com/products/backup.
