Kasten K10 V6.0 Offers Enterprise-Grade Ransomware Protection for Kubernetes

Kasten by Veeam, a market leader for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, is releasing its new Kasten K10 V6.0 Kubernetes data protection platform, including features that will help customers scale their cloud native data protection more efficiently, better protect their applications and data against ransomware attacks, and increase accessibility by adding new cloud native integrations.

Kasten K10 V6.0 bridges the need for increased operational efficiency and business resiliency in cloud native environments, according to the company.

The solution introduces newly enhanced capabilities to perform backup and disaster recovery with intelligent policies, extend threat detection capabilities, and uphold freedom of choice in terms of selecting best-of-breed components of the underlying infrastructure.

“Enterprises deploying cloud native applications today face two principal challenges. They need to protect their critical assets against cyberattacks while scaling applications and underlying infrastructure in the most efficient manner,” said Gaurav Rishi, vice president of product and partnerships at Kasten by Veeam. “Kasten K10 V6.0 addresses these issues head on, introducing intelligence and automation at all layers of the backup and recovery process with deep ecosystem integrations including Red Hat OpenShift for enterprise grade data protection. We also remove friction from the process by aligning with the tools and processes customers already use.”

New capabilities in Kasten K10 V6.0 include:

  • Enterprise-grade ransomware protection: Kasten K10 V6.0 enables organizations to create proactive ransomware protection strategies by improving suspicious activity detection capabilities, providing immutable backups, and elevating their capability for instant recovery. The new release extends threat detection capabilities by logging all events into Kubernetes Audit natively.
  • Scalability and efficiency improvements: A new application fingerprinting feature enables newly deployed stateful applications to be automatically mapped to appropriate blueprints to achieve proper data consistency. This helps to reduce risk, minimize complexity, nurture operational consistency, and enforce improved compliance, paving the way for scale.
  • Cloud native expansion: Kasten K10 continues to add the most up-to-date cloud native integrations that facilitate new workloads and storage types, hybrid deployments and increased security capabilities. Kasten K10 V6.0 now supports Kubernetes 1.26, Red Hat OpenShift 4.12 and a new built-in blueprint for Amazon RDS, allowing for broader reach and interoperability.

“The increasingly intricate and sophisticated nature of Kubernetes clusters makes deploying new services and ensuring adequate data protection for them a daunting task,” said Danny Allan, CTO and senior vice president of product strategy at Veeam. “With Kasten K10 V6.0 integrated into the Veeam Data Platform, customers can reduce complexity in their Kubernetes deployments, allowing their cloud native environments to reach their full potential. At the same time, the new release helps them double down on data protection and security resilience at a time when they can’t afford to compromise on either factor.”

General availability of the new Kasten K10 V6.0 is expected in late Q2.
