Zerto, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, announced strong momentum in 2021 for its ransomware recovery capabilities. In addition to its acquisition by HPE, Zerto’s successes were fueled by multiple product launches, industry awards and accolades as well as customer and partner wins.
Completed in September 2021, HPE’s acquisition of Zerto positions the HPE GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform in the high-growth disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) market with a proven solution and further propels HPE’s storage business into a cloud-native, software-defined data services business. These capabilities were underpinned by Zerto product announcements, including Zerto In-Cloud for AWS, Zerto 9.0 (including Zerto Backup for SaaS, powered by Keepit), and the availability of Zerto for Kubernetes.
Customer and partner successes included AssureStor, developer of a Zerto-powered cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) solution; StorMagic, which is delivering a Hewlett Packard Enterprise validated design for edge-to-edge workload protection; Epiq Global, which announced it was using Zerto to protect petabytes of data for hundreds of customers in the legal sector; and IEWC, which modernized its approach to DR by implementing Zerto across its IT environment. In addition, new customers using Zerto include Atlantic Constructors; Boston Medical Center; City of Georgetown, Texas; Fairfax County, Virginia; and Washington County, Texas.
To address the increasing demand from customers focused on protecting and recovering from the risks of ransomware attacks, Zerto announced a targeted campaign aimed to show organizations their legacy ransomware prevention strategies are not enough, and that they now need a more modern data protection solution in place for when the inevitable happens.
“Get Out of Ransomware Jail with Continuous Data Protection” allows organizations to try Zerto on 10 VMs. Organizations will be able to see how they can resume operations at scale in minutes, recover to a state seconds before an attack, and de-risk recovery with instant, non-disruptive testing if they are the victim of an attack.
“Organizations are increasingly aware that it’s no longer a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ they will be targeted by a ransomware attack. The problem is here to stay as attacks continue to rise in both volume and severity and as cybercriminals keep developing new and unexpected methods to encrypt data,” said Sandeep Singh, CMO, Zerto and vice president, Storage Marketing, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “By helping organizations focus on how to recover in just minutes, they can take a completely different perspective on the challenges presented by ransomware and how they can transform their ability to respond.”
