Walnut Creek, Calif.— May 25, 2021 — Retrospect™, a StorCentric company, today announced the general availability of Retrospect Backup 18 and Retrospect Virtual 2021, featuring new ransomware protection and security enhancements designed to enable businesses to further fortify themselves against accidents and malicious threats. The industry's most flexible backup solution also includes a smooth new first launch experience, deeper reporting and cloud data protection across Microsoft Azure, Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage and more.
Ransomware attacks are increasingly sophisticated, having the capability of watching for cloud account credentials, deleting backups and cloud storage, and then encrypting everything and demanding a ransom. It's imperative to build defenses against this escalating attack risk. SMBs, large businesses, and enterprise organizations need a backup target that allows them to lock backups for a designated time period. Many of the major cloud providers now support object locking, also referred to as Write-Once-Read-Many (WORM) storage or immutable storage. Users can mark objects as locked for a designated period of time, preventing them from being deleted or altered by any user.
“Retrospect Backup v18 has been uniquely engineered to integrate seamlessly with this new object lock feature to create immutable backups. Users can set a retention period for immutable backups stored on supporting cloud platforms. Within this immutable retention period, backups cannot be deleted by any user, even if ransomware or a malicious actor acquires the root credentials,” said JG Heithcock, General Manager, Retrospect, a StorCentric Company. “Retrospect Backup 18's powerful policy-based scheduling allows it to predict when those backups will leave the retention policy and protect any files that will no longer be retained, ensuring businesses always have point-in-time backups to restore within the immutable retention policy window.”

“Retrospect is a highly sought-after data protection solution. I've had many divisions of the military specifically request Retrospect software. If the United States military trusts them, so do I!”

“Ransomware and data attacks are on the rise, but there is now protection in a tried and tested solution from Retrospect. In addition to users backing up exactly what they want, they can also worry less by creating a backup policy to ensure that the retrieval of data/files will be unchanged from their original form.”
- Terry Noonan, Software License Specialist, License My Software
“I’ve been using Retrospect in deployments from a single server & 10 clients to dozens of servers & hundreds of clients and it’s an amazing product for the price point. Nothing I’ve tried has ever been better. No company or product covering such a critical component of IT has kept my mind at ease since I came across it at version 9.0. Orders of magnitude less expensive than other products, far more configurable, easier to understand, setup & maintain than anything I’ve used in 20 years of IT contracting. Technical support is top notch. Basic configuration to highly technical issues that resulted in bug reports then near immediate interim version releases with specific fixes is unparalleled for such an amazing product.”
- Thomas Winters, Torr Technologies Inc.
