SonicWALL Takes Business Continuity Offering to a New Level with Site to Site Data Backup and Recovery

New option allows channel partners to offer secure hosted vault services

SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 9 -- SonicWALL, Inc. (NASDAQ:SNWL), today introduced to its Continuous Data Protection (CDP) series the capability of using a CDP appliance as an offsite data backup solution. CDP Box-to-Box Backup provides a comprehensive solution for backing up and restoring data remotely without using third-party offsite facilities, giving users and managed service providers control over their data backup and recovery solutions.

SonicWALL CDP Box-to-Box Backup is an offsite backup and recovery solution operating in conjunction with local SonicWALL CDP devices. The SonicWALL Box-to-Box Backup solution automatically receives data from CDP appliances on a continual basis. All data is securely transmitted and encrypted with an AES 256-bit encryption key. In the event that a local disaster occurs or the local site CDP unit fails, IT administrators can recover data from the remote CDP device through a simple-to-use interface.

In a typical configuration, a local CDP appliance backs up servers, workstations, and laptops. Using Box-to-Box Backup, customers can set up a second CDP appliance at a remote location to back up the data stored on the local CDP appliance. The offsite CDP appliance can also be configured to backup multiple local CDP appliances.

"Box-to-Box Backup provides us more opportunities than before and will help us to grow our business," said Deepak Thadani, president of SysIntegrators, LLC, a SonicWALL Gold Medallion partner. "Now we are able to offer our customers complete, confidential data backup and recovery. Some customers are just not comfortable with a third party providing their offsite data backup. Box-to-Box will put these customers at ease, knowing they will have control over their entire backup and recovery solutions."

Using Box-to-Box Backup, the most current copy of data can rapidly be recovered after a disaster strikes, reducing business downtime from hours and days to minutes and seconds. This capability allows employees have the most recent data at their fingertips within minutes and business to be up and running as usual.

"With Box-to-Box Backup, our partners are able to offer their customers a more rounded out backup and recovery solution for disaster readiness," said Matthew Bolton, Product Manager for SonicWALL's Continuous Data Protection business unit. "We wanted to make our Continuous Data Protection solutions more appealing to prospective customers. Box-to-Box Backup allows our partners to host and manage their customers' offsite data backup and also to reach the set of customers that want to manage their own data backup and recovery solution completely."

SonicWALL Box-to-Box Backup is available immediately. A separate license and current support contract are required in order to utilize Box-to-Box Backup. This service runs on SonicWALL CDP Version 3.0 firmware. Current users of CDP appliances will automatically have their appliances updated to Version 3.0.
