More tools and ideas for enabling remote workforces

Case study: Eliminate VPN access?
Allowing open access to your VPN can slow the entire system. Mobile workers don’t always have secure internet connections, or experience with VPNs. This can mean security and compliance are compromised during document sharing.

Anchor's File Server Enablement provides access and real-time collaboration without a VPN. See how one company (supporting medical professionals) used Anchor to maintain security and compliance. Check out this Partner Success Story

Practical tips: We're collecting practical information including brandable "How to work from home" checklists you can share with your customers, the latest details on SBA loans, and other useful references on our Remote Workforce page.

Replibit: What is Axcient AirGap?

AirGap is new protection against malicious (and accidental) data deletion. It's built into Replibit Cloud vaults and local appliances and is enabled by default for all x360 users. You don’t have to sign up for anything new or turn anything on.

Most importantly, AirGap quickly recovers protected systems in as few as 15 minutes.

How does Axcient AirGap work?

AirGap retains snapshots in the system immutably. When deletion is confirmed, data is not immediately purged but retained and can later be restored to production. Confirming deletion protects against accidents, while retention allows time to recover from potential attacks.

And, Axcient's AutoVerify does a daily backup check to ensure good, recoverable data.
