ACTIFIO DATA-DRIVEN SOLUTION
Security, Compliance, and Copy Data Management.
Secure, centralized control and instant access to production copies for continuous security testing.
Cyber Resiliency is a critical focus for organizations of any size. Looming threats of ransomware — the US Government estimates that 4,000 attacks occur every day – as well as outdated methods of internal data governance in the face of rapidly growing (and distributed) data are increasing pressure on CIOs, CISOs, and even CEOs looking to protect their data and brands.
“The Actifio solution has dramatically reduced our time to recovery. It has also reduced our administrative workload while enhancing our backup/DR, DevOps and compliance. Our previous solution was so old and out of spec that it’s tough to calculate the actual savings.”
Keith Conger – Systems Administrator
Enterprises struggle to meet compliance requirements.
Rules like Appendix J, Sheltered Harbor and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) impose strict requirements and penalties for cyber resiliency non-compliance.
And with attacks becoming more frequent, customers need cost-effective offline copies of data that can be instantly used on-demand.
Security testing is too-often done after the fact, rather than built into the software development lifecycle. Creating production quality sandbox environments is complex, costly and time consuming

HOW Actifio HELPS
Actifio’s software platform provides a number of patented capabilities to ensure security and compliance.
Enforced Retention to Prevent Data Deletion.
Ensure data integrity by preventing unexpected data expiration or deletion prior to established retention periods thus protecting against rogue users and ransomware.
Air Gap Technology
Implement a low cost air gap strategy to protect against unexpected attacks and recover instantly and enable compliance with regulations like Appendix J or Sheltered Harbor.
Leverage Object Storage for Cost Effective Retention
Benefit from the powerful economics of object storage for data storage while also gaining instant data access.
Secure Immutable Data Storage
Rely on a hardened software appliance that limits external access and uses advanced data encryption to ensure data integrity and enable compliance with policies like Sheltered Harbor and GDPR.
Ability to Instantly Rollback & Recover
Rollback to previous states instantly regardless of data age or type & recover instantly.
Instant Creation of Test Environments
Spin up dozens of VMs instantly in a consistent and reliable manner to enable large scale security testing and validation.
Recover 10s, 100s or even 1000s of servers in parallel when attacks occur thus minimizing downtime and outage windows.
Consistent Security Policies
Maintain consistent security and access control on all data regardless of location by reducing surface area of attack by provisioning thin clones using a single backup copy to dev/test and UAT environments.
Enable Automated Legal Hold on Critical Data
Set enforced retention policies to ensure that data is retained based on fixed schedules and cannot be deleted prior to expiration.
Integrated Workflows to Enable Automated Data Masking or Record Removal
Workflow tools ensures that consistent actions are performed on all presented data copies including enabling third party masking tools or execution of database scripts to remove selected records.
Frequently Asked Questions.
Actifio’s pricing model is very simple and easy to understand. It’s based on the amount of source data protected. For example: If an enterprise wants to use Actifio to provision 20 clones of a 10 TB database, the enterprise would need Actifio license for 10 TB of source data. Enterprises can create as many clones as they want and can retain any amount of point-in-time history. Enterprises can also use this license anywhere in the public cloud or on-premises.
Actifio VDP is the patented core Virtual Data Pipeline technology that can be consumed in multiple form factors.
Actifio Sky is a VM appliance that runs Actifio VDP engine and can be provisioned in a public cloud VM or on-premises in VMware, Hyper-V VMs.
Actifio CDS/CDX is a physical appliance cluster that runs Actifio VDP engine with High Availability and is typically used on-premises.
Yes. Actifio supports all major public cloud providers including AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, and Oracle. It’s also available in some of the public cloud marketplaces.
