Gartner's evaluation criteria for vendors includes completeness of vision and ability to execute. As the backup and recovery market has hundreds of vendors, this report narrows the focus down to those that have a very strong presence worldwide in the upper-end midmarket and large-enterprise environments. "We are again honored to be named a Leader in this year's Gartner Magic Quadrant for Data Center Backup and Recovery Solutions," said Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas. "As data continues to grow and become more fragmented across clouds and virtual environments, organizations need great performance with integrated backup and recovery to help reduce risks and boost productivity – and at the same time, minimize storage costs. We believe this achievement underscores our commitment to offer comprehensive integrated enterprise data management – both on premises and in the cloud." According to the report, "leaders have the highest combined measures of Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. They also have the most comprehensive and scalable product portfolios. They have a proven track record of established market presence and financial performance. For vision, they are perceived in the industry as thought leaders, and have well-articulated plans for enhancing recovery capabilities, improving ease of deployment and administration, and increasing their scalability and product breadth." 2Previous titles include Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup Software and Integrated Appliances (2014-2015), Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Backup/Recovery Software (2011-2013), Enterprise Backup and Restore Magic Quadrant (2001-2005), Enterprise Backup Vendor Magic Quadrant (1999-2000).

Organizations today struggle with gaining visibility and insight into their fastest growing data—unstructured data. This type of data — including emails, documents and image files — expose organizations to potentially harmful security vulnerabilities and unintended personally identifiable information (PII) leaks. This problem is expected to intensify as enterprise data growth has accelerated to a rate of 49 percent year-over-year, according to the 2017 Veritas Data Genomics Index.1 The Integrated Classification Engine enables organizations to quickly scan and tag data to ensure that sensitive or risky information is properly managed and protected. This innovative technology provides broad visibility into PII and helps companies meet compliance regulations that require discrete retention policies be implemented and enforced across the organization's entire data estate—regardless of where that data lives. This new technology is available now in Veritas Data Insight 6.0 and will be available with Veritas Enterprise Vault 12.2 in August. Future integrations are planned across the Veritas data protection, storage and governance portfolio. The Integrated Classification Engine has capabilities that help organizations achieve compliance with strict data protection requirements worldwide, like the European Union's forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Specifically, the Integrated Classification Engine can locate where PII exists across an organization's data landscape and drive actions that help enterprises appropriately retain and delete this data, both critical and challenging aspects of the GDPR. According to findings from the first phase of the The Veritas 2017 GDPR Report, nearly 40 percent of respondents are worried their organization cannot accurately identify or locate data in a short time frame, a mandate of GDPR. Click here to read about phase two findings, released today, from the Veritas 2017 GDPR Report. Simple-to-use and easy-to-deploy, the Integrated Classification Engine includes more than 100 pre-configured patterns for recognition of credit card and social security numbers, medical records and other PII. It also comes pre-loaded with more than 60 different policies for GDPR, HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley and other regulations around the globe to accelerate compliance readiness. Additional features include a dictionary that identifies risky keywords that suggest improprieties, as well as confidence-scoring and quality assurance tools to minimize false positives. "Classification technology is a critical tool for organizations that need broad visibility into PII and want to retrieve specific information quickly in order to address GDPR," said Mike Palmer, executive vice president and chief product officer, Veritas. "Manual processes are often unenforceable, laborious and inconsistent. However, by incorporating modern classification technology across our portfolio, Veritas is leapfrogging the market with a new approach to data management that makes sensitive data easier to find, redundant and stale data easier to delete, and allows organizations to make more informed decisions." Veritas Data Insight 6.0 takes a significant step forward in delivering risk analytics by triangulating insights from content classification, metadata analytics and user behavior to quickly uncover potential bad actors or malicious activities. Data Insight's proprietary "User Risk Score" is the first-line of defense for identifying suspicious activity and initiating remediation efforts to keep sensitive files protected. Data Insight 6.0 introduces deep learning technology that incorporates the User Risk Score and other file attributes to hunt for an organization's riskiest files and recommend next steps. By using artificial intelligence to prioritize how the Integrated Classification Engine scans files, Data Insight 6.0 can dash through petabytes of data to illuminate the darkest of data. Data Insight 6.0 is available today from Veritas and its worldwide channel partners. Enterprise Vault 12.2 Leverages Classification to Enrich Retention and Discovery with Intelligence Veritas Enterprise Vault 12.2 enables administrators to infuse their archive with intelligence by reclassifying all of their existing content with consistent patterns and policies delivered via the Integrated Classification Engine. The solution aligns the classification tags with retention policies to ensure that all critical data is managed appropriately, while the "junk" can be deleted within the normal course of operations. Enhanced classification capabilities provide the foundation for accelerated investigations by making it easier to search for content using classification tags and expediting the process of responding to discovery or information requests to address compliance regulations. Enterprise Vault 12.2 will be available in August through Veritas and its worldwide channel partners. "As data growth reaches Exabyte proportions, organizations have become overwhelmed by mostly unstructured 'dark' data that is redundant, stale or of radically varying quality," said Jason Buffington, principal analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. "The Integrated Classification Engine introduced by Veritas today is designed to provide a substantial leap forward for companies needing to achieve governance, risk management and compliance through actionable intelligence on what data exists, who owns it and has access to it, and how it is being used." Veritas Technologies empowers businesses of all sizes to discover the truth in information—their most important digital asset.

The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) and NASA may team up for a mission to Venus. The two would be going ahead and initiating a research on the scorching hot planet's mysteries and also whether Venus is hostile to life. The mission has been dubbed Venera-D and would send an orbiter and a lander to the planet. The D in the name of the mission stands for dolgozhivushaya which means "long lasting" in Russian. NASA has passed two missions - VERITAS and DAVINCI, earlier this month to examine the surface and atmosphere of Earth's neighbor, Venus. Venera-D happens to be one more Venus mission with two of the World's most well-equipped agencies teaming up for the purpose. The proposed joint mission would analyze Venus' atmosphere for 3 years with an orbiter, as well as a lander that would be present for a few hours on the planet's burning surface. Although, Russia wanted more time on the planet's surface, the costs involved made this impossible. "Russia has always been interested in going back to Venus," said David Senske, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California Senske further added that NASA got involved with the process about three years ago, when Russia asked the U.S. space agency on its willingness to collaborate on the mission. The two space agencies NASA and Russia's Roscosmos are anticipating the possibility of finding microbial life and come up with a deeper understanding of the habitable environment on Venus's atmosphere. "A joint working team put forward several scenarios of the project in October, with Russian and American competences complementing each other. After that we discussed the matter with NASA Deputy Administrator Dava Newman, who confirmed NASA's interest to the Venera-D project," said Lev Zeleny,Director of the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Space.com reported that Russia would be in the pilot's seat for this mission by developing the launching systems, the lander and the orbiter. NASA is also expected to contribute additional scientific instruments to aid the mission. For nearly two years, discussions on the possibility of cooperation with NASA on the project has been ongoing. The last landing dates back to 1985 when a capsule of the Soviet's Vega-2 robot had reached the planet. The Venera-D mission is expected to launch in the second half of 2020. An international team of scientists would be delivering their final report on the mission to the two space agencies later this month. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved.
