Commvault has announced new security capabilities to assist businesses in protecting, defending, and recovering data in the face of increasingly sophisticated cyber threats.

According to a company statement, Commvault has expanded its security ecosystem to include product integrations with Microsoft and CyberArk as part of these capabilities.

“Our customers can now be on the offensive, taking it to the attackers by combining threat defence, backup, and recovery in unprecedented ways,” said Sanjay Mirchandani, CEO of Commvault.

According to the company, its data protection capabilities include early warning technologies that aid in securing the system against threats before they occur, defending enterprise data if the environment is breached, and ensuring recoverability so customers and their data remain resilient in the face of evolving cyber threats.

Commvault claims to be able to detect threats in as little as five minutes, as opposed to the industry average of 24 hours.

The simplicity of the Commvault dashboard was praised by Paul Vries, IT Consultant at Bilthoven Biologicals and a client of the data protection firm.

“We can restore a virtual machine or backups after an attack with just a few clicks, which is critical in our line of work as a pharmaceutical company with very sensitive data,” Vries was quoted as saying in the statement.

“Commvault’s new integration and existing plug-ins with the CyberArk Identity Security Platform assist organizations in adhering to strong ‘Zero Trust’ architecture practices, deploying rigorous lifecycle credential policies, and complying with the most stringent regulations,” said Clarence Hinton, CyberArk’s Chief Strategy Officer.
