SonicWall has launched new versions of its continuous data protection (CDP) solutions and global management system (GMS).

According to the company, CDP 6.0 automatically preserves and protects business-relevant data assets against loss from file, device and location-based disasters and supports Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.

SonicWall said that the new version of the CDP includes a new fileset backup methodology, combined with agent-based data deduplication moves that only stores unique data blocks to speed the backup process up and optimise bandwidth usage, while maintaining information continuity and the ability to flexibly restore multiple revisions.

Ken Dang, product manager of CDP at SonicWall, said: “Risk management and compliance mandates are issues forcing IT to rethink data protection, data availability, data preservation and disaster recovery readiness and responsiveness.

“SonicWall CDP 6.0 governs information growth effectively in real-time. It scales up to midsize and larger organisations, providing options to preserve, replicate, archive, govern and restore greater amounts of data.”

The company also launched the latest version of its GMS, with service pack 2 introducing centralised reporting and monitoring for CDP appliances running firmware 6.0.

It said that GMS 6.0 Service Pack 2 provides organisations, distributed enterprises and service providers with a flexible solution to centrally manage and deploy not only SonicWall CDP appliances, but also SonicWall firewall, anti-spam and secure remote access solutions.
