Assured Data Protection has announced the launch of its eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) service, providing businesses and MSPs with a fully automated and managed XDR solution powered by Confluera. The service delivers XDR across multiple data streams and complements existing cloud data backup and recovery systems to provide pervasive cloud data management.
Assured Data Protection already delivers
enterprise-grade data backup, disaster recovery and business continuity as a
service. Following a partnership agreement with Confluera, it has added
advanced threat detection and remediation to its extensive data protection
portfolio. The XDR service enhances enterprise data protection capabilities and
integrates seamlessly with an organisation’s data management infrastructure. It
can be deployed as enterprise software or as a managed service, either in the
cloud or as an on-premises solution, depending on business requirements.
Extended Cloud Data Backup and
This is a natural evolution for a company that
has spent the last decade working with enterprise customers and MSP partners to
deliver data protection services. Assured Data Protection enables businesses
and MSPs to actively manage and monitor all data activity across their IT and
cloud infrastructures via a single management interface.
This new XDR capability will provide more
comprehensive data protection. It allows enterprise businesses and MSPs to
pinpoint and track data breaches as they happen. The XDR service will alleviate
pressure on security operations and eliminate the need for IT teams to
retrospectively identify and track threats. This will save critical time and
resources that can be dedicated to core-IT responsibilities.
For the XDR service, Assured Data Protection is
extending the same level of sales and technical support it already provides to
partners that have adopted its backup and recovery solutions.
Simon Chappell, CEO, Assured Data Protection:
“We are data protection specialists so it was only natural that we would
eventually provide our customers with smart threat detection and response.
Every day we help our customers recover data in the event of system failures,
or damages to software and hardware. We’re now able to extend that service by
helping customers to mitigate the impact of data breaches in real-time, all
under the umbrella of data protection. We’re excited to share this with our
customers and our MSP partners to create new data protection ecosystems that
Stuart Harper, Managing Director, Optec IT Solutions, explains: “We work closely with Assured Data Protection. Their structured processes and partner support dovetail nicely with our own operations. The specialized training, sales and technical support they provide have allowed us to ramp up our cloud data protection service offerings and introduce XDR into the mix. We’re able to integrate directly with them on key projects to maintain the highest levels of service delivery and customer support.”
