We're excited to announce new versions of the Retrospect product line: Retrospect Backup 18 and Retrospect Virtual 2021. Retrospect now features 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 new first launch experience, deeper reporting and cloud data protection for Amazon S3, Google Cloud Storage, Wasabi, Backblaze B2 and more.
With Retrospect Backup, businesses around the world can now protect their critical infrastructure on Retrospect Cloud Storage, with complete support for immutable backups and anomaly detection, as well as on-premise with Retrospect’s deep support for NAS devices and tape libraries.
Businesses need to understand not only what is in a backup but what changed between backups. Using anomaly detection and backup comparison, administrators can identify exactly which files changed to signal an anomaly and evaluate their contents to isolate valid ransomware infections.
Many ransomware variants depend on unpatched systems for infiltration. Retrospect Backup now utilizes its extensive footprint to aggregate system information and identify systems that are out of compliance with the latest version of each operating system.
Retrospect Management Console dashboard will be redesigned to better aggregate information for larger environments to address reporting pains in significantly larger backup infrastructure.
Cloud backup is significantly faster with multi-part upload support across the major cloud storage services.
Retrospect will support an additional type of retention where Retrospect extends the period on past backups instead of including that data in new backups.
Retrospect will support blob storage on Microsoft Azure for Government to enhance support for state and local agencies looking for data protection in a US-based high-security data center.
Identity protection is important even for on-premise applications. Retrospect Backup will support configuration encryption and multi-factor authentication (MFA) combined with a password prompt. Even if an attacker gains administrative access to the computer where Retrospect Backup runs, they will not be able to access the program or the configuration files. In addition, Retrospect Management Console supports multi-factor authentication.
Retrospect Backup supports LTO-9 tape libraries for fast data protection to tape storage.
On Retrospect Management Console, administrators will be able to access a full audit log for actions taken by any users on their account.
On Retrospect Management Console, organizations will be able to assign roles to individual users, with "Administrators" able to access any function within the service and "Viewers" able to utilize the extensive reporting capabilities without worrying about changing any settings.
Retrospect Virtual supports data protection for Teams in Microsoft Office 365 along with email, Sharepoint, and OneDrive.
Hyper-V 2022 is the latest version of Microsoft's virtualization software, and Retrospect Virtual is now fully certified for it.
Fast data protection is critical in physical and virtual environments. Retrospect Virtual is now significantly faster at backups and restores.
With advanced data deduplication, Retrospect Virtual can now protect larger amount of data in a smaller storage space.
