Security vendor SonicWall has announced the next phase of its storage capabilities adding remote and offsite data backup, recovery and storage to its existing Continuous Data Protection (CDP) series.
Capable of backing up servers, workstations, and laptops CDP Box-to-Box Backup is an offsite backup and recovery appliance operating in conjunction with local SonicWALL CDP devices capable of backing up existing data on local CDT appliance, clamed SonicWALL.
“We wanted to make our Continuous Data Protection solutions more appealing to prospective customers. Box-to-Box Backup allows our partners to host and manage their customers’ offsite data backup and also to reach the set of customers that want to manage their own data backup and recovery solution completely,” said Matthew Bolton, product manager for SonicWall’s Continuous Data Protection business unit.
According to SonicWall, data is transmitted encrypted with an AES 256-bit encryption key for a secure transmission. In the event that a local disaster occurs or the local site CDP unit fails, IT administrators can recover data from the remote CDP device through a simple-to-use interface claimed the vendor.
“Some customers are just not comfortable with a third party providing their offsite data backup. Box-to-Box will put these customers at ease, knowing they will have control over their entire backup and recovery solutions,” Deepak Thadani, president of SysIntegrators, LLC, a SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner.
Box-to-Box Backup is currently available. Existing users of CDP appliances will automatically have their appliances updated to Version 3.0.
