Shields Up with Immutable Backups
We hope that this newsletter finds each of you and your families safe and well, with the recent events unfolding in Ukraine. It is a very unsettling time for all of us, including for our DPX team in Poland and our Ukrainian friends and colleagues. We are very proud of our team in Poland for the assistance they are providing to refugees. We hope and pray for everyone’s safety and for a swift and more peaceful resolution to this conflict.

Technology transcends borders and it is important to recognize that it can be used to disrupt and inflict damage to mission critical systems.

The US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has issued a  SHIELDS UP alert to organizations of all sizes, that includes verifying your business continuity procedures and testing the cyber-resilience of your backups.

Both Catalogic DPX and CloudCasa support immutable backups and we recommend you use these options to provide tamper-proof, immutable backups. If you are a user of AWS or Kubernetes, you can also sign up for FREE automated Cloud Security Posture Reviews that can detect a number of vulnerabilities across your cloud (covers 20+ AWS services) and your Kubernetes environments. We hope you leverage these options to proactively improve your cyber-resilience posture.

We offer our full assistance and remain prepared to support our customers in any way. We are available to do a free review and health check of your backup environment, data protection policies including your 3-2-1 backup strategy, and your business continuity plans.  We are happy to set up vulnerability assessments in supported environments and help enhance your cyber-resilience, per the CISA Directive.
