CRN Names Arcserve a Finalist for 2021 Tech Innovator Award

  • CRN Tech Innovator Awards honor the year's most innovative products and services
  • Arcserve UDP is recognized for being a groundbreaking data protection offering for solution providers

Eden Prairie, MN – December 6, 2021 – Arcserve, the world's most experienced data and ransomware protection provider, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Arcserve as a finalist for the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. Arcserve is recognized for Arcserve® UDP 8 in the Data Protection Software category.

This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories in critical areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and ability to address customer and partner needs.

Finalist Arcserve UDP uniquely combines deep learning server protection, immutable storage, and scalable onsite and offsite business continuity for a multi-layered approach that delivers complete IT resiliency for your virtual, physical, and cloud infrastructures. It is the only product on the market that offers a complete solution to neutralize ransomware attacks in the cloud or on-premises. Arcserve UDP's backups are secured by Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, a robust first line of defense against ransomware.

Pairing with the OneXafe appliance offers native immutability to store backups, making it difficult for ransomware to touch backup data. Immutable cloud storage for backups is powered by Amazon AWS S3 Object Lock. With its inclusion of Sophos Intercept X Advanced, Arcserve UDP opens opportunities for channel partners to offer customers data protection and cybersecurity with one solution.

Partners can use one vendor to satisfy customers' needs for a formidable first and last line of defense for backups. Arcserve is the only vendor promoted to "Challenger" in the Gartner 2021 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup and Recovery Software; Arcserve UDP played a vital role in earning this recognition. The Magic Quadrant report cited Arcserve's breadth of platform, malware detection, data recovery capabilities, and cost of ownership as key strengths.
