ioFABRIC Helps Xenium IT Corp Provide Ransomware Protection with X Protect Solution

TORONTO – ioFABRIC Inc. today announced that premium IT services provider Xenium IT Corp has chosen ioFABRIC as part of its Xenium X Protect offering, a simple, turnkey data protection and data availability solution that eliminates the risk of ransomware, data loss and downtime.

Xenium is a premium provider of IT services, focusing on setup and support of networking infrastructure, server installations and specialized applications. With knowledge of customers’ changing IT needs, coupled with the escalating risk of losing data from cyberattacks, Xenium developed its X Protect offering, which leverages ioFABRIC’s multi-site, multi-cloud data fabric to store data in an immutable format that cannot be altered. “We had immediate traction, a pipeline and deployment at several customer sites within 30 days of signing up. Offering a managed service with a subscription price, keeps us closer to our customers,” said Frank Kuschmierz, Xenium CEO.

“While ioFABRIC’s data fabric was developed as a data management solution, it provides complete ransomware protection out of the box. With our X Protect offering, we install storage hardware at the customer site, and that data gets duplicated and encrypted offsite using the ioFABRIC platform. X Protect manages the entire process—for the user nothing changes with how data is accessed except it is 100% secure from ransomware,” added Kuschmierz.

Xenium X Protect uses core ioFABRIC functionality bundled with premium value added services such as back up validation, ransomware screening and instant recovery, so data is always safe and easily recoverable. X Protect automatically manages a copy of data on-premises and a copy in the cloud, providing always-available data for business continuity. If local access to data is interrupted for any reason, X Protect automatically fails-over to the cloud copy. In addition to ensuring business-critical information is stored and backed up safely, data is encrypted to meet security and compliance requirements, as well as compressed to reduce storage costs.

“Juniper Research predicts that by 2019 the cost of cyber crimes will reach $2.1 trillion. Ransomware is avoidable with a solution like X Protect where organizations can be sure they they’ll never lose data and will never have to pay a ransom to get their data back,” said ioFABRIC CEO and Co-Founder Steven Lamb. “X Protect targets data protection for small to mid-sized organizations.”
