NAKIVO Expands Backup to Cloud, Anti-Ransomware, and Microsoft 365 Backup Capabilities with Latest v10.7

NAKIVO receives an Honorable Mention in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ and releases the latest 10.7 version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication with enhanced cloud storage, anti-ransomware, and SaaS data protection capabilities.

Following last month’s Honorable Mention in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Solutions, NAKIVO releases the newest version 10.7 of NAKIVO Backup & Replication.

“With NAKIVO Backup & Replication v10.7, we have reached yet another significant milestone in enabling organisations to meet their data protection needs and to be more agile and efficient with their cloud capabilities,” says Bruce Talley, CEO of NAKIVO Inc. “With more cloud storage platforms, enhanced performance, and perhaps most critically, the ability to mitigate ransomware targeting backup data in the cloud, organisations now have the final piece of the puzzle to protect their workloads in the cloud.”

The 10.7 version of NAKIVO Backup & Replication introduces several new features and enhancements:

  • Direct Backup to Cloud: Backup to Microsoft Azure Blob and Backup to Backblaze B2
  • Anti-Ransomware Features: Cloud Backup Immutability (Wasabi, Azure Blob, Backblaze B2)
  • Microsoft 365 Data Protection: Microsoft Teams Backup and Native Change Tracking Integration
  • Backup Monitoring: Overview Dashboard

Direct Backup to Cloud

The popularity of cloud storage platforms continues to grow due to their scalability, cost-efficiency, and security options. NAKIVO first introduced the direct backup to cloud functionality back in 2020, enabling customers to send backups and backup copies directly to Amazon S3 and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.

With the latest v10.7 release, customers can now back up their data directly to Microsoft Azure Blob and Backblaze B2, as well as Amazon S3 and Wasabi. NAKIVO aims to provide customers with more options to choose from to meet the needs of different organisations.

Anti-Ransomware Protection in the Cloud

The growing shift to the cloud gives cybercriminals a fast lane to further accelerate cybercrime. To help organisations counter this threat, NAKIVO introduces immutability for backup data in the cloud. Immutable backups can mitigate the ransomware threat, ensure data recovery, and strengthen data compliance.

With the latest 10.7 version, customers can apply immutability to their backup data stored in Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure Blob, Backblaze B2, and Wasabi to protect against unwanted modifications and encryption by ransomware.

SaaS Data Protection

NAKIVO continues to expand Backup for Microsoft 365 functionality to ensure that customers’ SaaS data is safe and recoverable. In the latest release, NAKIVO expands the list of supported Microsoft 365 services to include Microsoft Teams. Customers can now protect Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, SharePoint Online, and Teams data with incremental backups to onsite storage.

NAKIVO also integrated Microsoft’s native change tracking functionality to improve the performance of SaaS data protection. This option enables customers to create Microsoft 365 backups faster and avoid overloading the network.

Backup Monitoring

Access to critical information about the backup infrastructure is key to reliable and efficient data protection. Better visibility and insights have always been a focus area for NAKIVO, with features like the calendar Dashboard, Global Search, and many others.

The new Overview dashboard in v10.7 enables customers to monitor backup, replication, and recovery activities, as well as key solution components. The dashboard delivers backup monitoring information to help customers address issues quickly and proactively.

Feature Availability

NAKIVO Backup & Replication v10.7 is available for download. Customers can either update their version of the solution or install the 15-day Free Trial to check how the new features work.
