Kasten by Veeam®, the market leader in Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, today announced the availability of the new Kasten K10 v4.0, its award-winning management platform. of Kubernetes data.
With unprecedented ease of use, end-to-end security, and a rich ecosystem to support the entire application stack, the latest version of Kasten K10 is the most comprehensive enterprise data management solution to date.
Designed specifically for Kubernetes, Kasten K10 v4.0 offers the industry’s first native Kubernetes ransomware protection capabilities, providing much-needed immutability against ransomware attacks.
“Ransomware is one of the most pressing business problems. The most conservative estimates put overall losses of ransomware above 20,000 million in 2020. These attacks are increasingly targeting users Kubernetes, since the adoption container has become a prerequisite for IT modernization and digital transformation, “said Niraj Tolia, President and CEO of Kasten by Veeam.
“Malicious actors know that rapid development, installation gaps, and ongoing backup and operations problems can be easy threat vectors for ransomware. The new ransomware data protection capabilities in Kasten K10 plug these gaps. , providing an extremely effective defense against ransomware attacks in Kubernetes environments. ”
The capabilities introduced in the new Kasten K10 v4.0 underscore Kasten’s dedication to Kubernetes users, integrating cloud-native architectural principles and hardened security capabilities into a native Kubernetes platform that offers seamless environment and performance optimization.
Kasten K10 v4.0 is the company’s most significant update to its Kubernetes data management platform since its acquisition by Veeam., enabling DevOps and PlatformOps teams to effectively address the threat of ransomware in containerized environments.
Kasten K10 v4.0 also includes a number of new association certifications and improved support for more data services. Additionally, the updated platform introduces several ease-of-use enhancements that refine multi-cluster support with advanced automation capabilities for simplified backup and restore.
Key new features include:
- Kubernetes data protection to enable immutability for protection against ransomware, malicious insider attacks, or accidental deletions
Easy to use:
- Application-centric policies that allow authorized users to create Kasten K10 policies in an application namespace to protect only that specific application
Expanded support to ecosystems:
- Rich ecosystem integrations with support for HPE Ezmeral Container Platform, Nutanix Karbon, Red Hat OpenShift, Microsoft Azure Stack, and backup to NFS targets
” Evaluator Group’s research shows that cybersecurity and data protection have received a significant increase in attention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is in large part because ransomware attacks continue to be more frequent and sophisticated. “said Krista Macomber, Senior Analyst at Evaluator Group. “Protecting against these types of attacks as companies prepare to adopt business-critical Kubernetes environments is critical.
Capabilities such as those available in Kasten K10 v4.0 can simplify the process of propping up Kubernetes environments from ransomware. , better positioning customers to avoid gaps in coverage that could lead to extremely costly data loss and downtime. ”
“Kubernetes has quickly become one of the leading enablers of hybrid cloud, but its rapid adoption in the enterprise has made it a likely target for cyberattacks, particularly ransomware,” said Kris Inapurapu, vice president of business development at MinIO. “Immutability for Kubernetes applications, such as what K10 v4.0 delivers, combined with cost-effective and consistent object storage creates scalable and resilient backups that provide organizations with reinforced defenses against the threat of ransomware and other malicious attacks. . ”
“As organizations strive for greater deployment simplicity and flexibility, containers and Kubernetes have become an important element of a multi-cloud data management strategy,” said Paul Speciale., Scality Product Manager. “Within the cloud-native ecosystem, however, Kubernetes backups have become prime targets for ransomware attacks. In these environments, applications and data must be accessible and portable, but also hardened with protection capabilities such as those provided by Kasten. K10 v4.0 ensures organizations reap the benefits of easy-to-use yet ultra-resilient backup and disaster recovery capabilities as they scale their services and workloads without the looming threat of ransomware . Scality fully supports Kasten K10 backups with data immutability via S3 API and object locking. ”
