Veeam Provides Insight Global with Confidence Against Ransomware Threat

Veeam Software | October 11, 2022

Veeam Software, the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection, today announced that Insight Global, a premier staffing and services company headquartered in Atlanta, GA has replaced its legacy backup solutions with Veeam Availability Suite™ to protect against ransomware attacks. Whether it’s finding the right candidate for a job or managing a project end to end, Insight Global’s commitment to clients runs deep. The company’s recruiters and account managers cover all employment sectors and skillsets. They identify talent, coordinate interviews and handle onboarding and payroll. “In order to place people in jobs and pay them, our systems and data must be backed up and protected,” said Dave Hudson, Chief Information Officer, Insight Global. “That’s a big responsibility, and we take it very seriously. We’re responsible for people being able to put food on their tables and pay their rent.” Protecting systems and data is such a high priority that Insight Global created a full-time position focusing solely on backup and disaster recovery. Jordan Tazewell, Disaster Recovery Engineer, works to maintain business continuity as ransomware attacks escalate and cybercriminals show no sign of letting up. In an independent survey of 3,000 business and IT leaders who were asked about their data protection strategies, 76% of them reported at least one ransomware attack in the previous year. Backup repositories were targeted in 94% of those attacks and 36% of their data was unrecoverable. “Our business can’t run if data is unrecoverable, so we made some changes to our backup strategy,” Tazewell said. “The first thing we did was ensure that the backup solutions we considered offered fundamental features: immutability to protect against ransomware.” Hudson said a ransomware attack could lead to unplanned downtime, which could be detrimental to the business. “Downtime might delay a client’s start date for a new job, or it might delay their paycheck,” he explained. “We’re not willing to take that risk, so we upgraded the legacy solutions to Veeam. We know our backups are reliable, secure and that we can act quickly to recover them. Veeam has helped increase our confidence to sustain business operations.” Veeam backs up 100 TB across 100 VMware vSphere virtual machines from Pure Storage SafeMode™ snapshots on premises for immutability and sends backup copies to Wasabi cloud storage for additional immutability. “Having immutable backups is critical in the fight against ransomware — and having the ability to recover from them quickly is also critical,” Tazewell said. “That’s what separates Veeam from competitors.” Tazewell said one of his favorite Veeam features is SureBackup because it verifies the recoverability of each backup. Other favorites include Storage Level Corruption Guard, which scans backups to identify and repair corrupt data blocks, and Instant VM Recovery and Veeam Explorer™ for Microsoft SQL Server, which recover data from Pure Storage snapshots quickly and easily. “Recovery time has decreased significantly with Veeam because it integrates so well with Pure Storage,” Hudson said. “Veeam recovery has proven itself twice already: once during a system failure and a second time following user error. Each time we were able to get up and running in a very short time. Veeam is a dynamic enterprise solution for data protection.” “Our goal is absolute confidence that the business will be able to recover from a ransomware attack or a disaster scenario in as short a time as possible. Veeam helps us achieve our goal because it gives us the ability to be resilient and maintain business continuity.” About Veeam Software Veeam® is the leader in backup, recovery and data management solutions that deliver Modern Data Protection. The company provides a single platform for Cloud, Virtual, Physical, SaaS and Kubernetes environments. Veeam customers are confident their apps and data are protected and always available with the most simple, flexible, reliable and powerful platform in the industry.

SecureAuth Announces Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric™ to Strengthen Passwordless Continuous Authentication

Arculix | November 21, 2022

SecureAuth, a leader in access management and authentication, today announced its Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric to further strengthen the technology to enable organizations for passwordless continuous authentication. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is a technology framework that delivers authentication driven by AI/ML behavioral modeling, continuous risk scoring and eliminates logging in making passwords obsolete. For users, it’s a one-and-done event for accessing their relevant apps, VDI or SSO. For companies, it’s a robust authentication with continuous authentication in the background without any friction to the user. “Historically, a single source to define and administer policy and processes for all users has been absent, Fraud, credential stuffing and attacks will continue to evolve as bad actors thwart existing security approaches. SecureAuth’s Universal Authentication Fabric delivers the first risk-based analytics approach as a consolidated backbone for continuous, multi-factor, and passwordless authentication with the highest level of security as well as a frictionless experience for users.” Paul Trulove, CEO of SecureAuth Between authenticating to the workstation, an SSO portal or federated web apps, VDIs, VPN, and PAM solutions, the typical user authenticates 16 times a day using three different sets of username and password. This is simultaneously insecure and a poor user experience. With Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric, users can login once and securely access the applications needed to do their job. Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric allows users to attain a level of assurance needed to authenticate with its patented behavioral AI/ML risk analytics engine. To ensure there is no account takeover (ATO), it generates a score at the beginning of a user logging in that is used to grant access to web apps, servers and services without requiring another factor check. This removes the need for siloed systems to authenticate users. “SecureAuth’s Arculix Universal Authentication Fabric is the underlying element for the new 360-degree cybersecurity perimeter that every enterprise needs: Continuous, Holistic and Adaptive,” said Alfredo Estirado, CEO of Grupo TRC. “As a key partner of SecureAuth, we are excited to offer this to our customers across various geographies.” Key capabilities include expansion of passwordless features into endpoints, including access to persistent and non-persistent VDIs, in the same passwordless way a user authenticates to a standard machine. This enables a passwordless authentication journey whether in or out of the office. This Universal Authentication Fabric also supports our device trust support for seamless passwordless authentication for transient virtual desktops and physical desktops. About SecureAuth Corporation SecureAuth is a next-gen access management and authentication company that enables secure and passwordless continuous authentication experience for employees, partners and customers. With the only solution that can be deployed in cloud, hybrid and on-premises environments, SecureAuth manages and protects access to applications, systems and data at scale, anywhere in the world.
