EnduraData Ports Its Replication Software to OpenBSD, Announces Ransomware Solution
Minneapolis, July 24, 2018 — EnduraData, a leader in cross-platform data replication solutions and data management software, today announced the availability of its EDpCloud™ software for the OpenBSD operating system, joining its Windows, Linux, Mac, and Unix versions. It also announced a major disaster-tolerance solution to help businesses, hospitals, and government entities survive ransomware attacks.
“The support of an obscure but powerful operating system such as OpenBSD is important to give our users many options in the fight for their entities’ existence,” said Aba El Haddi, CTO and founder of EnduraData. “Combined with the new affordable disaster-tolerance solution, EDpCloud greatly improves the odds of an entity being able to return to normal operations at significantly lower costs and in a faster time frame.”
He continued: “EnduraData strongly encourages businesses to implement disaster-avoidance strategies. But, if they are hit with ransomware, we’re also providing them with a disaster-tolerance solution to reduce the chance of data loss, to improve the odds of an easier recovery, and to help them resume operations and drastically reduce costs.”
After its 2018 ransomware attack, the City of Atlanta incurred recovery costs exceeding $2.7 million. Other private organizations keep their losses private, but the damages are growing by a staggering 80% per year since 2015 (https://www.enduradata.com/the-rise-of-ransomware-backup-and-protect-your-data-before-you-are-forced-to-pay-up).
To develop the ransomware tolerance solution, EnduraData worked with many system and storage administrators, including some who were victims of ransomware.
“I have been using EnduraData Replication for over two years now. It is rock-solid and the new ransomware solution will protect businesses from devastating ransomware attacks,” said John Baker, IT manager at Aitheras, a Rockville, MD-based consulting firm and solutions provider to federal, state, local, and commercial clients.
