An Integrated Approach to Comprehensive Data Protection

An Integrated Approach to Comprehensive Data Protection

Safeguarding data against loss, theft or corruption has always been one of the most critical functions of IT organizations. However, the process has become far more complex over the past several years. With the continued transition to cloud, mobile and remote working, the days of simply establishing a secure perimeter around a single, monolithic data repository are long gone.

Today, an effective business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) solution must protect a diverse range of decentralized data sources. In addition to conventional on-premises servers, critical data is scattered across multiple cloud platforms, edge servers, endpoint devices and applications. Analysts estimate that as much as 75 percent of all data will be processed outside traditional data centers by 2025.

As a result, BCDR now requires the coordination of many different processes, systems, applications and data sources. This creates increased management and operational requirements that can quickly overwhelm resource-strapped IT teams.

Verteks helps customers offload much of the BCDR burden with a unified data protection solution. Datto Unified Continuity safeguards everything from virtual cloud data to physical endpoint files, along with the systems that process it all. We can fully integrate multiple physical, virtual and software appliances with a variety of storage options to craft a comprehensive data protection solution tailored to your business.

Datto Unified Continuity encompasses the following solutions:

Siris. This all-in-one solution incorporates local backup and recovery with a secure, cloud-based repository to create a unified BCDR solution that is administered from a multitenant cloud portal. It can be deployed as a hardened appliance or as fully integrated software running on your own hardware. It creates complete system image backups with unparalleled local virtualization boot time and performance. Siris scans all backups for ransomware to ensure data isn’t compromised, and backup copies are kept in the immutable Datto Cloud to ensure they cannot be encrypted, manipulated or corrupted.

Alto. Designed specifically for small to midsized businesses (SMBs), this small but powerful hardware appliance provides enterprise-grade BCDR capabilities. It is a plug-and-play solution that works right out of the box to automatically back up and protect up to 2TB of data with ransomware verification and flexible recovery options. It enables a variety of restore options, from full system restores to more granular restores that target specific files.

Datto Continuity for Microsoft Azure. Under Microsoft’s shared responsibility model, workloads running in the Azure public cloud are not automatically backed up. This solution eliminates single-cloud risk by replicating Azure workloads to the Datto Cloud every hour to ensure consistent protection.

Datto SaaS Protection. Cloud-based applications dramatically increase efficiency and productivity, but user-generated data — including intellectual property — is often left unprotected in the cloud. Datto SaaS Protection is a cloud-to-cloud backup solution, offering automated, continuous backups for data residing in Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace.

Cloud Continuity for PCs. A great deal of important business data often resides locally on employee laptops and PCs. That makes them enticing targets for hackers, especially now that more users and devices are operating beyond traditional workplace security perimeters. This solution backs up PCs to the Datto Cloud and enables fast, reliable image-based restores of the entire device configuration, setup and applications.

Companies today are likely to have critical data scattered among an assortment of user devices, cloud instances, and physical and virtual servers, which has made data protection an increasingly complex and costly endeavor. Contact us to discuss how to leverage the Datto portfolio of solutions to protect your critical data — wherever it may reside.
