Barracuda Backup Helps Customers Protect Data with Added Speed and Performance Improvements
Barracuda today announced several new enhancements to its Barracuda Backup product line to enable faster backup and recovery performance, enhance public cloud support, and expand storage capacity for customers – all at competitive price points. The new Barracuda Backup version 6.3 provides customers with improved performance to more efficiently protect their data with a single solution regardless of whether data resides in physical, virtual or Office 365 SaaS environments. The new enhancements, which are available to both physical and virtual Barracuda Backup appliance customers with active subscriptions, boost initial backup speed and recovery performance, while shortening restore windows to improve recovery time objectives. This is especially important today where rampant ransomware attacks continue to increase risks of data theft. In fact, in a research survey conducted by Osterman Research, 49.4 percent of companies surveyed indicated they had been hit with one or more ransomware attacks in the last 12 months.
