An expert redefining data protection for Amazon S3: Clumio

Clumio is relentlessly focused on taking the complexity out of cloud backup and delivering an experience that is easy, flexible, and secure. Take a stroll through some of the significant achievements that have put us at the forefront of data protection and ransomware solutions. Enterprises want to use VMC to move their VMs to the cloud, and they need a secure, easy to manage data protection solution. Current solutions require separate backup applications to run on-prem and in the cloud. Capacity planning for these solutions is complicated and time-consuming. It is also challenging to deal with complicated, capacity-based licensing models. Managing backup compliance is also a challenge due to multiple or fragmented management consoles. Further, current solutions often spawn fragmented security solutions that increase management complexity and adversely impact security. A single, secure backup service that protects VMs that runs on VMC, in your data centers, or any remote sites.

There is no hardware or software to size, configure, manage, or buy. Scale on-demand as resources are automatically activated to meet requirements. This approach means that capacity planning is no longer required. Predictable Costs – pricing is based on the number of VMs protected, regardless of how large they grow. Always-On Security – all backups are encrypted in-transit, and at rest. Built on AWS, Clumio benefits from AWS’s investments in physical and environmental security, compliance, data governance, and data durability.

Clumio SecureVault Lite for Amazon EC2 and Amazon EBS delivers fast backups and data recovery in seconds, to provide customers with quick ransomware protection and lower recovery time objectives (RTO) for business continuity SLAs at 30% less cost Clumio SecureVault Lite for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). Enterprises today demand data protection solutions which protect application data outside of the organization’s access control domain to ensure business continuity. While the cloud operating model enables customers to innovate at a pace never seen before, it can also result in unbridled usage and additional complexity for the customer to manage. Organizations are continuously faced with the daunting task of doing more with less which can lead to balancing trade-offs between cost savings and meeting key security and compliance objectives.

Today with SecureVault Lite, enterprises are no longer faced with the choice between ransomware protection and cost reduction. Clumio’s continued innovation and integration with AWS native services, has resulted in a 30% savings compared to SecureVault, allowing air gap protection at a similar cost as local in-account snapshots. This makes achieving air gap ransomware protection more affordable, to ensure all data is securely protected, no matter what security challenges arise. Clumio’s rapid recovery capabilities has helped numerous organizations remediate ransomware attacks, avoid paying the ransom, and get backup in running in a matter of hours.

“With the increased threat of ransomware and insider attacks to organizations’ business-critical data in the cloud, implementing a cloud data protection strategy that delivers air-gapped, immutable backups has become table-stakes. In fact, cyber insurance companies now assess risk based on whether organizations have saved backups outside of their access domain” said Poojan Kumar, Chief Executive Officer at Clumio. “However, in their effort to get this done, many organizations were invariably faced with the tough task of selecting between security and reducing cloud spend. With the addition of Clumio SecureVault Lite to its platform, Clumio is eliminating the need to make this choice and truly making air-gapped backups in AWS effortless and accessible to all.”
