Assurance in today's threat landscape
The Object Lock feature within the ActiveScale solution enables organizations to protect their valuable data against the rapidly growing ransomware threat by creating immutable backups. Together with Veeam, ActiveScale customers can prohibit deletion of an object or bucket for a defined period, thereby ensuring critical data will remain available and secure. The Object Lock functionality helps maintain compliance and avert the risk of data loss from accidental or malicious deletion, relocation, or encryption, assuring that data will remain in its original state.

"We know that businesses are facing a constant battle to protect their data, which is now their most valuable asset and critical to future growth," said Bruno Hald, General Manager, Secondary Storage, Quantum. "The Object and Object Immutability Ready qualifications from Veeam ensure our customers can confidently deploy ActiveScale in a Veeam environment, knowing their data is secure, accessible, and protected from today's most sophisticated attacks."

"Quantum continues to expand its partnership with us and we are pleased to add ActiveScale object storage to a select group of S3 targets that can provide robust ransomware protection for our joint customers," said Andreas Neufert, vice president of product management, alliances at Veeam. "The combination of Veeam Backup & Replication™ and Quantum ActiveScale Object Lock functionality delivers simple, flexible, and reliable data protection for customers' growth of unstructured data."
