Minnesota High Tech Association named Arcserve winner of cyber security category for achievements in disaster recovery
MINNEAPOLIS – November 17, 2017 – Arcserve, LLC, whose breakthrough data protection and availability solutions deliver enterprise power with small team simplicity, today announced it has received a 2017 Tekne award for its innovation in disaster recovery. The awards, given by the Minnesota High Tech Association (MHTA), honor companies and individuals who play a significant role in developing new technologies that positively impact the lives and futures of people around the world.
Arcserve was named winner of the cyber security category for achievements in securing networks, computers, or systems from unintended or unauthorized access such as in the case of a ransomware attack, through its disaster recovery solutions. With an astounding annual growth rate of 350 percent, the scope and scale of ransomware attacks have proven that every type and size organization is vulnerable. Because of the rapid pace by which new variants are produced, 70 percent of the companies attacked have fallen victim to ransomware that bypassed security and successfully encrypted their files.
Organizations have increasingly invested in the Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP) suite, which includes UDP Cloud Direct direct-to-cloud disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), as the ultimate line of defense against ransomware and other cyberattacks. If data is backed up frequently , an organization’s system becomes more accessible and its ransomware risk lowers to nearly zero. Arcserve also formed Ransomware Watch, a consortium comprised of the leading innovators in data security focused on educating and equipping organizations in the fight against ransomware.
“Every day, more than 26,000 organizations of all sizes around the globe rely on Arcserve UDP to simply and easily safeguard and ensure accessibility of their most critical data,” said Tom Signorello, CEO of Arcserve. “We’re honored to be recognized with a 2017 Tekne award for our continued innovation and commitment to keeping organizations at the forefront of data recovery.”
Arcserve was among 16 of Minnesota’s most influential companies recognized for innovations across agriculture, cyber security, education technology, energy, healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, software, and workforce development. “Minnesota continues to be a national leader in technology and science, and this year’s Tekne Award recipients are clear evidence of that,» said Margaret Anderson Kelliher, president and CEO of MHTA. “We are honored to recognize Arcserve for its innovations and achievements.”
