MSP360 Introduces New Features to Increase Cyber Threat Protection

By Luke Bellos

IT management solutions developer MSP360 has announced over a dozen new features for MSP360 Managed Backup Service (MBS), the company’s cross-platform disaster recovery offering.

The cloud revolution has, for the most part, been a blessing for enterprises attempting to improve working conditions and digital processes. That is why many businesses have used 2021 as a transformation year, and have invested heavily to shift away from legacy infrastructure. Unfortunately, this collective shift to the cloud has inspired online criminals to exploit businesses that operate in the cloud unprotected, and has caused serious mayhem for many unsuspecting victims.

Luckily, developers at MSP360 understand the devastation that ransomware, malware, and DDoS attacks can have on businesses that let these exploits go unchecked. This led the company to create a comprehensive collection of new features to shield cloud users from these evolving online crimes.

"The latest updates to MSP360 MBS allow MSPs to further strengthen the IT infrastructures of their clients by delivering additional layers of data protection against malicious software, including ransomware," said Brian Helwig, CEO of MSP360. "We're not stagnant in our approach to providing MSPs with the tools they need to secure and protect customers' backups from the rising threat of cybercriminals near and far."

Notable upgrades for MSP360 include the following:

  • Immutable storage for AWS to protect against ransomware- Saves critical data from being accidentally deleted, and guarantees customer data can be recovered in the event of a ransomware attack
  • New backup format-data sets are now individually backed up, and are isolated from one another to prevent mass extraction.
  • The Grandfather-Father-Son (GFS) retention policy- a backup policy that utilizes weekly,monthly, and yearly backup procedures to ensure multiple copies exist in the event of an attack.
  • Restore verification for image-based backups-MSPS now have the ability to verify the recoverability of system image backups through virtual machines.
  • Mandatory and full consistency checks- MSPs can review the state of data, in the event that it was compromised while being transferred to cloud networks.
  • Client-side deduplication- Customers can benefit from reduced bandwidth and storage consumption during redundant file transferring in backup procedures.

"We're constantly soliciting feedback from our customers, listening to their needs, and updating our solutions accordingly," Helwig added. "That's how we've been able to deliver a new flat-rate pricing structure for backups with MSP360's MBS, powered by AWS, increase our customer base exponentially, and continue to expand our product line, ranging from backup to remote connect to RMM."
