Announcing Enhanced Ransomware Protection with Backblaze B2 + Catalogic

The move to a virtualized environment is a logical step for many companies. Yet, physical systems are still a major part of today’s IT environments even as virtualization becomes more commonplace. With ransomware on the rise, backups are more critical than ever whether you operate a physical or virtual environment, or both.

Catalogic provides robust protection solutions for both physical and virtual environments. Now, through a new partnership, Backblaze B2 Cloud Storage integrates seamlessly with Catalogic DPX, Catalogic’s enterprise data protection software, and CloudCasa by Catalogic, Catalogic’s Kubernetes backup solution, providing joint customers with a secure, fast, and scalable backup target.

Join Troy Liljedahl, Solutions Engineer Manager at Backblaze, and William Bush, Field CTO at Catalogic Software, as they demonstrate how easy it is to store your backups in cloud object storage and protect them with Object Lock.

The partnership enables companies to:

  • Protect enterprise environments and cloud native applications from ransomware via immutable, air-gapped backups.
  • Enable hybrid backup and cloud archive solutions to achieve a 3-2-1 backup strategy.
  • Back up both virtual and physical environments in a single cloud platform.
  • Restore single files or directories from VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V agentless backups.
  • Reduce restore times from hours to minutes.

“Backblaze and Catalogic together offer a powerful solution to provide cost-effective protection against ransomware and data loss. Instead of having to wait days to recover data from the cloud, Backblaze guarantees speed premiums with a 99.9% uptime SLA and no cold delays. We deliver high performance, S3-compatible, plug-n-play cloud object storage at a 75% lower cost than our competitors.”
—Nilay Patel, VP of Sales and Partnerships, Backblaze

The joint solution helps companies achieve immutability and compliance via Object Lock, ensuring backup and archive data can’t be deleted, overwritten, or altered for as long as the lock is set.

Editor’s Note: Product Update

Object Lock users, great news! As of September 2022, you can enable Object Lock on existing Buckets making it far easier to set immutability on all of your data already stored in B2 Cloud Storage—easing your path to enhanced cybersecurity and compliance strategies.
