Code42’s proven endpoint backup platform puts us in an ideal place to solve some of today’s most complex data problems, especially those related to security. Customers are starting to realize the true potential of endpoint data, and demanding more visibility to understand data movements in and out of the organization. With the launch of 6.0, Code42 took a major leap into the data security space, and the update is the subject of a new Market Insight report from 451 Research.
The 451 Research highlights that vendors in the backup market have been gravitating towards additional security features to address the latest strains of cyberthreats, such as ransomware. Code42 receives praise for taking on ransomware, but also a more common and potentially more damaging danger – insider threat. “Addressing the threat of ransomware in particular has been a recurring theme among many vendors in this space, but the company is tackling internal threats with equal zeal as external ones,” states the report.
The Market Insight report also covers additional 6.0 features such as Access Lock and Okta integration. Looking at the totality of the new version, 451 Research states that “vendors such as Code42 are in a good position to deliver advanced data management and data loss-prevention capabilities since they see every file and the changes made to them during the backup process.”
