May,2018 - QNAP® Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has become a partner in the Veritas™ Technology Ecosystem. With in-depth cooperation, QNAP and Veritas provide a comprehensive storage solution tailored for the data and system backup needs of small and medium businesses. An all-in-one backup NAS appliance solution is also made possible for users to deploy and configure their backup infrastructure faster and easier, providing a higher-performance and highly-scalable backup storage for users running the Veritas Backup Exec solution on QNAP NAS.
Veritas Backup Exec 16 features an intuitive and user-friendly interface, allowing users to streamline their backup tasks across virtual, physical and connected cloud environments. Through deep integration with Microsoft® Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) and VMware vStorage™ APIs for Data Protection (VADP), the Veritas application effectively minimizes the impact on the CPU, memory, and I/O performance of the virtual host. Coupled with global deduplication and changed-blocks tracking technology, the recovery time and disk space required for backup files are greatly reduced. Veritas Backup Exec also supports the instant recovery of VMware® and Hyper-V® virtual machines, providing an immediate usable copy of the server and data for disaster recovery, testing, and application deployment.
In the past, professional IT staff were required to deploy enterprise-level IT infrastructure and plan correlating backup solutions. With the integration of Veritas Backup Exec and QNAP NAS, these staff can now easily use QNAP NAS as a high-performance backup storage. Moreover, by installing Veritas Backup Exec™ on Microsoft® Windows Server® running in QNAP’s Virtualization Station, users can instantly turn the QNAP NAS into a backup appliance and immediately perform virtual machine or physical machine backup tasks on the QNAP NAS, providing users with a more cost-effective, high-performance, and highly-scalable backup storage solution.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
