Arcserve, Sophos Partnership Delivers Data Protection Appliances
The Arcserve X Series Appliances are preloaded with Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) and Sophos X Intercept Advanced for Server. The new appliances combine “deep learning endpoint protection and on- and off-site disaster recovery with over 3PBs of effective capacity in one unit, and linear expansion to increase capacity as needed,” Arcserve says.
The Arcseve-Sophos business partnership essentially counters OpenText (which owns Carbonite and Webroot) along with Acronis — which develops a cyber protection suite spanning security and data protection capabilities.
Additional storage, data protection and cybersecurity firms are striving to converge their products amid an all-out war to mitigate ransomware. Many of the companies have MSP-centric partner programs.
