Commvault Metallic ThreatWise aims at detecting unknown threats

Data protection and management software company Commvault System Inc. today announced the general availability of Metallic ThreatWise, a data security service that offers threat detection technology that surfaces unknown “zero-day” threats.

Metallic ThreatWise is pitched as further redefining data security with early warnings that are claimed to be unmatched by rivals, reducing the risk of data being compromised.

The service integrates cyber deception to engage and surface threats before bad actors reach their target. Using decoys, Metallic ThreatWise baits bad actors into engaging fake resources, proactively spotting threats in production environments and arming businesses with tools to keep data safe from extortion.

At the same time, Commvault is continuing to invest in machine learning technologies for data protection and security. With its latest platform release 2022E, the company says, customers receive critical threat detection and added security without compromising performance, wherever their data lives.

“Data recovery is important, but it’s not enough anymore,” said Commvault Chief Executive Sanjay Mirchandani (pictured). “Attacks gain lateral movement within your organization within two hours. By then it’s game over. Commvault has integrated ThreatWise deception IP into the Metallic SaaS portfolio to provide our customers proactive data protection that extends beyond the backup environment and helps them intercept threats before it impacts business.”

In a deep dive into Commvault in November, Dave Vellante, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, explained how the company aims for decentralized management with federated governance.

“Data silos are not just a technology problem,” Vellante said. “They are a symptom of flawed organizational constructs. By rethinking the data management paradigm, the responsibility for good data protection policy transcends technical teams and becomes a priority for the entire organization.”
