New Enhancements Keep You Safe from Ransomware Attacks

Dell APEX Backup Services introduces new capabilities, add-ons and improved performance.

In today’s digital landscape, businesses face a growing number of cyberthreats and data breaches. Cyberattacks are becoming more sophisticated and frequent, making it more important than ever for businesses to have a comprehensive data protection solution. According to the 2022 Global Data Protection Index, 1000 IT decision-makers revealed that 67% are concerned their organization’s existing data protection measures may not be sufficient to cope with malware and ransomware threats. In the same survey, 55% of ITDMs noted that they are not very confident that their organization is meeting its backup and recovery service level objectives.

In response to this shift in the IT landscape, we’ve focused on enhancing Dell APEX Backup Services to protect critical business data from cyberattacks.

Strengthen and Accelerate Ransomware Protection and Recovery

Dell APEX Backup Services offers two ransomware protection options to help businesses avoid costly downtime and lost revenue.

Introducing Core Ransomware Protection, an entry-level option that provides insights into security events and unusual data activity. This option lets IT teams quickly identify and dashboard suspicious activity in real-time.

Updated Advanced Ransomware Protection and Recovery helps businesses with expanded features to quarantine and stop the spread, and quickly recover clean, comprehensive data sets. This delivers comprehensive and enhanced data protection features that include data backup, recovery and compliance management. When customers choose the advanced ransomware recovery option, the core ransomware features are included. 

Dell APEX Backup Services has also expanded its Ransomware Recovery feature to include SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. This enhancement provides peace of mind to businesses by helping them protect their Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace application data from ransomware attacks.

Scale Storage Capacity as Data Needs Grow While Protecting Critical Data 

New high-capacity storage tiers are now available for businesses to upgrade their storage for SaaS applications and endpoints. These options provide businesses with additional capacity beyond 50GB per user, enabling expansion to 300GB per user. Additionally, businesses can purchase 10TB storage add-on packs to address their endpoints’ storage needs and provide peace of mind that their data is safe and secure. With these new options, businesses can easily scale their storage capacity as their data needs grow while protecting their critical data.

Reduce Storage Costs and Improve Performance with Salesforce Archiver

To reduce storage requirements for aging data, Salesforce Archiver enables the ability to archive data from Salesforce active storage to Dell APEX Backup Services Cloud.  The Salesforce Archiver feature offers several advantages to Salesforce customers. It can enhance the speed and performance of Salesforce organizations, reduce storage costs, ensure compliance with regulatory and governance requirements and securely archive sensitive legacy data.

New U.S.-based Educational Institutions Bundle to Protect SaaS Apps 

Dell APEX Backup Services offers a new custom offer for U.S.-based educational institutions to protect SaaS applications such as Microsoft 365 and Google Workspace. For every license purchased for staff and teachers, users get four additional user licenses provisioned free¹ for students accessing the same shared storage.
