Enhanced cloud integration supports new security capabilities.

Commvault has announced General Availability for Feature Release 11.26. These enhancements to our best-in-class Intelligent Data Services help to harden infrastructure against attack and improve recoverability, continuing Commvault’s commitment to mitigating cyber threats—including ransomware—in any infrastructure.

Data Protection is all about protecting your data and workloads and helping to ensure rapid recoverability, whether it’s on-premises, in hybrid environments, in the cloud, and even across multiple clouds. Enhancements include:

Taking full advantage of cloud-native APIs like Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) direct write and Azure Stack Changed Block Tracking (CBT) incremental snapshots helps to increase performance and reduce reliance on cloud access nodes

Extending Commvault® Disaster Recovery orchestration to include Object Storage and Big Data File Systems like Hadoop

Protecting and preserving cloud metadata tagging of workloads to simplify conversion and migration across Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS)

Data Security is all about hardening your defenses to detect, prevent, and recover from ransomware attacks and other data breaches. Enhancements include:

Utilising hardware-based security tokens like those offered though YubiKey and the U.S. Department of Defense, along with common access card support, helps to strengthen your security posture

Leveraging highly secure cloud authentication methods, including the AWS Key Management System (KMS) and Azure Key Vault

Data Compliance and Governance is all about providing new tools manage data access and enable compliance with a continually-evolving regulatory landscape. Enhancements include:

Enabling the use of external classifiers like Azure Form Recognizer to simplify data governance

Driving operational efficiency by migrating and leveraging existing indexes across Data Governance and eDiscovery solutions

Data Transformation provides the ability to seamlessly move data across disparate environments for application modernisation as well as enabling new workloads and processes. Enhancements include:

Accelerating cross-region disaster recovery in the AWS cloud through the use of Amazon EBS direct-write APIs

Allowing Service Providers to easily deliver Commvault Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) to their clients

Data Insights applies artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to your data to help drive cost savings and operational efficiencies. Enhancements include:

An upgraded entity extraction engine reduces memory requirements and increases performance of eDiscovery and compliance operations

Utilising ML-driven data insights within Data Governance to calculate sensitive data risk assessments and identify anomalies in user behaviour

“Today’s enhancements are focused on rock-solid cybersecurity principles and architected for the cloud, while continuing to protect on-premises data. Our commitment to constant innovation and industry-leading Intelligent Data Services means that our customers are always able to combat the latest threats, no matter where their data lives.
