Joseph F. Kovar

Businesses large and have one thing in common: They must make sure their data is protected and available. These 10 applications show how it can be done.

Veritas Backup Exec 21

Veritas in April unveiled Veritas Backup Exec 21, the latest version of one of the IT storage industry‘s best-known data protection and management software. Veritas Backup Exec protects data in on-premises or cloud workloads, and is available in either perpetual or term subscription licensing. Veritas Backup Exec 21 brings five new key capabilities, including multifactor authentication to improve enterprise security; ransomware protection that prevents any non-Backup Exec process to modify backup data even via external code execution; an enhanced deduplication engine that uses a more secure SHA512 hash calculation algorithm compared to what was used in the previous deduplication engine; new subscription licensing based on instance count; and instant recovery for VMware and Hyper-V supported from deduplication storage.
