Catalogic Software announced the release and general availability of the latest version of Catalogic DPX

December 2022 by Marc Jacob

Catalogic Software announced the release and general availability of the latest version of Catalogic DPX, the company’s enterprise data protection software. DPX 4.9 builds on GuardMode, first introduced in July, now available for Linux servers and Samba shares and DPX vPlus, cloud data protection for Azure Virtual Machines (VMs), Azure Stack and Google Compute Engine VMs. With these updates, Catalogic delivers one of the widest data protection and backup coverage matrices for private, public and hybrid-cloud environments.

DPX GuardMode is complementary to endpoint and edge protection, changing a backup team’s cybersecurity posture from reactive to proactive with intuitive, granular detection of affected data. DPX GuardMode monitors files and file system behavior, including over the network, instead of relying on specific binary fingerprints. Honeypots utilized as decoys to back up a multi-level forensic layer of protection ensure the capture of the many, ever-evolving ransomware strains.

For Windows environments, DPX GuardMode maintains and regularly updates over 4000 known ransomware threat patterns, while assessing affected files. With DPX 4.9, file monitoring has been extended to Linux servers and Samba shares. In addition, backup administrators can now benefit from increased quality of alerts, where DPX GuardMode measures the level of file entropy and compares known magic signatures on files suspected to be impacted. GuardMode uses active, live forensic techniques instead of analyzing backup data that lags security incidents by several hours, days and even weeks.

Catalogic Software will host a live webinar Enhance your Data Protection Strategy with a Proactive Ransomware Shield on Wednesday, December 14 at 10 AM EST, 4 PM CET, where Catalogic will discuss what backup administrators can proactively do to strengthen their cybersecurity posture.
