Kaspersky Lab has extended its long-standing collaboration with NetApp in offering complimentary solutions for data centers with the announcement that Kaspersky Security for Storage is now compatible with NetApp ONTAP 9. Building on existing support for earlier ONTAP systems, the solution enables the smooth migration to the latest version of ONTAP, with robust high-performance and scalable protection of corporate data in storage architecture across disk to flash to cloud.
With the simultaneous deployment of NetApp ONTAP 9 and Kaspersky Security for Storage, corporate customers and channel partners can capitalize on their infrastructure investments, including NetApp engineered systems, cloud and software-defined storage. For corporations with heterogeneous storage infrastructure combining NetApp ONTAP 8 and 9, Kaspersky Security for Storage is compatible with both. This drives cost-efficiency and business continuity, eliminating the need to implement multiple security solutions to protect different versions.
Kaspersky Security for Storage delivers protection for storage systems without affecting performance or undermining data transition and management. The key security advantages now available for NetApp ONTAP 9 includes:
- Real-time anti-malware protection
- Cloud-assisted security with Kaspersky Security Network
- Flexible scan configuration
- Optimization and adaptable utilization of system resources
- Scalability and fault tolerance
