Clumio Protect for Amazon S3 GA
October 1, 2021
released the industry’s first Amazon S3 backup as a service, Clumio
Protect for Amazon S3. Clumio Protect provides the ultimate
ransomware and bad actor protection that enables the lowest Recovery
Time Objective (RTO) to meet any Service Level Agreement (SLA), with
greater compliance visibility.
A few protection options are available to AWS customers including S3
versioning and replication, yet these options have shortcomings that
leave enterprises with inefficient, complex, and costly data
protection projects. Versioning results in data duplication, high
costs for storing small objects, and lack of data classification,
which further complicates compliance. These inefficiencies slow down
the adoption of cloud for business critical use cases. Enterprises
require point-in-time recovery, air-gap protection from ransomware,
bad actors, and accidental deletions, and efficiencies built-in to
deliver a reasonable cost.
Global Compliance and Visibility: Clumio Protect provides a centralized view across buckets, accounts, and regions to make compliance audits a breeze. Customers get real-time visibility and alerts when backups are out of compliance.
Lowest RTO to Meet Any SLA: Clumio Protect reduces recovery time with flexible recovery options for buckets, prefixes, and objects across any AWS account, reducing restore times from hours or days to minutes. Global search enables quick access to any file, at any point-in-time, anytime it is needed.
Simpler and More Cost-Effective than Build it Yourself: Clumio Protect provides up to 50% savings on AWS costs with built-in efficiencies to remove the need for versioning, reduce the overhead of small files, and enable data classification of your most critical datasets.

Cloud Data Protection Strategies research shows that organizations
are increasingly adopting public cloud infrastructure for storing
and protecting business-critical data. With the rise in ransomware
issues, it becomes paramount for organizations to protect their data
assets in the public cloud, and one of the biggest challenges out
there is Amazon S3,” said Christophe Bertrand, Senior Analyst,
Enterprise Strategy Group. “Backing up cloud infrastructure data can
be very challenging at scale because of the fragmentation that
exists in such environments. That’s where Clumio is innovating with
a solution that optimizes data protection for S3, provides simple
data classification-based backup to meet compliance needs, and
provides air-gapped ransomware protection.”
