Veeam and Cloudian Object Lock Technology Protects Backup Files
GREENVILLE, S.C. (Nov 1, 2020) – Green Cloud Technologies (“Green Cloud”), a cloud technology solutions provider, introduces a new Secure Backup as a Service (BaaS) powered by Veeam and Cloudian to ensure protection from increasing ransomware attacks facing companies and organizations at alarming rates. The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) warns attacks are more targeted, sophisticated and costly in their 2019 alert, encouraging back-ups for prevention and continuity measures.
Green Cloud’s Secure BaaS now offers channel partners a data protection feature that protects data at the storage system level by making backup data unchangeable for a set period. This ensures a clean data copy can be easily recovered in a ransomware attack, thereby preventing the need to pay ransom or risk permanent loss of valuable data.
“Our channel partners will now be able to offer a secure backup storage solution that addresses their clients’ urgent need to protect data from ransomware attacks, which have increased in frequency by 97 percent in just the last two years,” said Keith Coker, CEO and co-founder of Green Cloud. “Cloudian object storage integrates seamlessly with Veeam Availability Suite, which allows our partners to provide immutable off-site storage for a clean restore in case a cyberattack occurs.”
Veeam manages ransomware protection as part of the standard backup workflow, so there is no additional workload, and it’s automated for simple management. Secure BaaS powered by Veeam and Cloudian is HIPAA and GDPR compliant, verified in government certification testing and is certified compliant with the non-rewritable and non-erasable storage requirements of SEC 17a-4(f) and CFTC Rule 1.31 (c)-(d).
“Green Cloud’s Secure BaaS is a great example of how Cloudian and Veeam are partnering to provide customers with a modern data protection platform that safeguards digital assets against ransomware,” said Jon Toor, chief marketing officer at Cloudian. “Object storage with data immutability is the most effective way to combat this growing threat.”
Green Cloud is one of the largest independent channel-only cloud IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) providers in the country that sells cloud infrastructure products to Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Value-Added Resellers (VARs) who need turn-key, cloud-based infrastructure solutions.
