Catalogic Software Introduces Flexible Immutability to Safeguard Data in Latest DPX Update

Catalogic Software, a  provider of secure data protection solutions, is releasing the latest version of Catalogic DPX, the company’s enterprise data protection software, making enhancements to the DPX vStor backup repository technology.

This release introduces advancements in data immutability and recovery functionalities, and vStor Snapshot Explorer feature, all designed to bolster the security and flexibility of the company’s flagship enterprise backup solution, according to the company.

DPX’s enhancements include immutability into vStor, empowering organizations to leverage existing infrastructure to implement software-defined immutability, avoiding the need for costly new hardware.

This capability enables users to set immutable snapshots on both primary and replica backup targets, providing an affordable and flexible layer of data protection. With the vStor Snapshot Explorer feature, users can now directly access and recover files on snapshots stored in vStor, simplifying the recovery process and reducing recovery time during critical operations.

“Ransomware and malware are an ongoing threat to businesses everywhere. Catalogic remains dedicated to advancing proactive security measures for our data protection customers. Our newest version of DPX is tailor made for today’s threat landscape,” said Pawel Staniec, CTO, Catalogic Software. “Robust, secure data backup plays a key role in restoring data post attack. Our vStor enhancements provide the ability to instantly recover and ensures our customers are equipped to swiftly bounce back from any cyberattack, even with today’s ever evolving threats."

DPX proactive pre-backup and post-backup security capabilities are now enhanced with the integration of DPX GuardMode into the vStor technology. Now DPX incorporates entropy checking of files in VMs to identify anomalies post-backup, with GuardMode offering both live and on-demand scanning capabilities.
