OpenText has announced the launch of the award-winning Carbonite Endpoint backup solution in India, with the added option for businesses to securely backup their data into a local vault to meet data sovereignty requirements.
Carbonite Endpoint also provides businesses a cost-effective way to meet the demands of a distributed workforce without impacting bandwidth performance, a release said.
It expands the portfolio of disaster recovery (DR), server, backup and migration solutions allowing users to receive continuous access to data and critical assets with endless protection and uptime.
Carbonite + Webroot, OpenText companies, are leading providers of data protection and cybersecurity, helping organisations around the globe bolster their cyber resilience as a means to withstand and quickly recover from cyberattacks and data loss.
Carbonite has serviced partners and customers in the region for over 10 years, acting as a valuable solutions provider in helping business migrate workloads in real-time and meet DR requirements driven by demanding SLAs for both cloud or on-premises environments.
The Ericsson Mobility report named India as the second largest consumer of Internet, which inevitably attracts a substantial increase in ransomware and other internet-related cyberattacks.
Key findings taken from the 2021 Webroot BrightCloud Threat Report showed 6 countries including India accounted for half of the top 50k malicious IP addresses used largely for Windows exploits, spam, scanners and botnet.
Although the average number of malicious IPs decreased globally from 2020 to 2021, India saw a 28% YoY increase from 6.65% to 8.5% malicious IP convictions.
“Over the past six months we have seen an increase in customers wishing to back up their endpoints with clean restores. These are important measures against cyber events particularly in the wake of the Personal Data Protection Bill,” said Carbonite + Webroot India Senior Sales Manager Roshan Dsouza.
“We are pleased to provide a solution which meets these requirements, so IT organisations can assist businesses with keeping their data safe and secure,” he added.
The launch of the vault in India marks the third vault in the APAC region, followed by Australia and Singapore. In APAC, Carbonite’s channel spans across 14 countries and more than 2,000 managed service providers.
Going forward, Carbonite, coupled with Webroot security offerings, will look to expand its channel and MSP community and network with a particular focus in Australia and India.
Powered by DoubleTake, Carbonite has been offering its Availability and Migrate solutions for over a decade in India to help businesses migrate workloads in real time and meet disaster recovery needs.
Digiswitch Infotech CEO Rajeev Ranjan Kumar, a Carbonite partner for 10 years, said, “The tools from Carbonite have allowed us to deliver various complex migrations and disaster recovery drills across government, enterprise and system integrators around the globe.”
