Zerto has today announced the availability of a series of major product updates, bringing its ransomware recovery capabilities to the leading cloud providers so organizations can recover in minutes at scale to seconds before an attack. The enhanced Zerto 9.5 now includes expanded immutability options with Azure and S3-compatible storage, a new Zerto Linux appliance with security enhancements, and expanded integrations with Google Cloud Platform.
New updates to Zerto 9.5 and Zerto Backup for SaaS, powered by Keepit, are designed to address a wide range of data protection issues, including ransomware, the most prevalent cyber threat facing organizations today. These key updates extend Zerto’s leadership in ransomware resilience to enhance ransomware recovery, security, and platform support.
Immutable data copies are largely immune from ransomware and can be used to recover encrypted data after a ransomware attack. Zerto has added Microsoft Azure and S3-compatible storage as a destination for immutable data copies for ransomware recovery. In addition, Zerto Backup for SaaS, powered by Keepit, now offers offsite immutable backups of Azure Active Directory, a critical component for recovering quickly from ransomware.
Zerto’s new Linux virtual appliance deploys quickly, enables increased security through multi-factor authentication (MFA), and offers easy management via hands-off upgrades and troubleshooting.
Data protection to cloud platforms offers increased protection from ransomware. Google Cloud Storage is now a destination platform for additional data copies for recovery.
With global ransomware costs expected to rise from $20 billion in 2021 to $265 billion by 2031, Zerto is offering the ability to protect 10 VMs with Zerto at no cost with the Zerto Free Edition.
