Axcient has unveiled an addition to its x360 business availability lineup aimed at helping managed services providers deliver business continuity and disaster recovery services via the cloud.
Axcient x360Recover Virtual Office promises “easy to use and always-on self-managed cloud disaster recovery” for appliance-based or direct-to-cloud systems, the company said in its announcement.
Ben Nowacky, senior vice president of product at Axcient, said the solution offers MSPs “insurance they need” in the event of server outage, local disaster or cyberattack such as ransomware.
The software aims to allow instant recovery of production servers and workstations in the Axcient cloud and incorporates regular full-office recovery test functionality. Each virtual office instance can be configured via VPN, site-to-site OpenVPN, and port forwarding.
Data is encrypted in transit and at rest, and role-based authentication is also featured.
The vendor was a finalist in CRN Magazine’s 2020 Tech Innovator Awards, for its MSP-focused AirGap technology, and named to CRN‘s Edge Computing Top 100 List for 2020.
“Axcient AirGap is a unique security offering that we created to eliminate the threat of ransomware for our partners,” Nowacky said.
“AirGap provides a multi-layered security approach to protect partners from data deletion, and is fully integrated into Axcient’s x360 platform.”
David Bennett, chief executive at Axcient, said: “Axcient offers partners an innovative, unified platform to cure data loss for their clients and a dedicated support team to address any concerns quickly. Our goal is to keep businesses up and running with our technology.”
Blaine Raddon, chief executive at CRN‘s publisher, The Channel Company, said: “Increasing data collection and processing power at the edge is the foundation needed to create intelligent systems, enabling companies to improve efficiency and productivity and work smarter.”
