Arcserve and Sophos expand alliance to unveil fully integrated cyber and data protection

Arcserve, LLC, has announced an expansion of its existing alliance with Sophos to introduce cyber and data protection for infrastructures with on-premises, cloud, and SaaS-based workloads.

This collaboration eliminates the complexity of discrete cyber security and data protection with a solution suite that combines anti-ransomware and other threat prevention technologies with ‘immutable’ backup and disaster recovery capabilities for protection from cyber attacks, major disasters, human error, or other unplanned outages.

New cloud and SaaS solutions include Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365 and Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos.

Arcserve Solutions Secured by Sophos

Arcserve Solutions Secured by Sophos leverage AI-powered system protection with deep learning technology that detects both known and unknown malware without relying on signatures, exploit prevention, and anti-ransomware capabilities. They also prevent data loss and downtime with agentless and agent-based backup, DR onsite or to public and private clouds, local and remote virtual standby, AES encryption, role-based access control, and SLA reporting.

This alliance was first launched with Arcserve Appliances Secured by Sophos, and will now also include:

  • Arcserve UDP Cloud Hybrid Secured by Sophos: protects cloud-based workloads to enable cohesive cloud security, protection, and retention strategies. Offered as a fully managed service extension to Arcserve UDP software and appliances, it provides cyber protection, policy-based management, RPO and SLA validation, application-level recovery, and failover and failback to public and private clouds with egress included.
  • Arcserve Cloud Backup for Office 365 Secured by Sophos: protects Microsoft Office 365 data from intentional or unintentional deletion, programmatic issues and external security threats with cloud-to-cloud backup for Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint Online. Powered by Arcserve UDP and Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, it provides cyber protection, policy-based management, quick restore to Office 365, and granular recovery with egress included.

Both solutions are available as an annual subscription.
