Security Software Provider Quest Unveils New Cloud Platform for Managing Backup & Recovery Environment

Quest Software, a global systems management and security software provider, has announced the launch of its new Quest Data Protection Portal – an “intuitive”, cloud-based management console that provides end-to-end visibility for an entire data protection environment.

The first release of this new portal is an extension of Quest’s Rapid Recovery solution. The portal would cater to the needs of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and enterprise customers seeking for a single pane of glass view into managing and monitoring growing data protection environments from anywhere at any time.

With Quest Software’s cloud-based portal, MSPs would gain a single point of entry to easily manage backup and recovery across multiple customers, use cases and deployment locations – all through a single interface. Key features and functionalities of the Quest Data Protection portal include:

  • Cross-location and device monitoring – A cloud-based delivery model ensures that customers can monitor all of their Rapid Recovery Core servers in any location, from any location via mobile device, laptop or desktop.
  • Activity status displays – Admins and MSPs can check the status of all backups, replications, and virtual standbys across entire data protection surface areas and customer deployments within the solution for easy updates and peace of mind.
  • Access control at group and user levels – Maintain the “highest” level of security and ensure the right users can access the business critical data they need and at any time.
  • Near real-time alerting – In the event of a backup or recovery error, admins receive real-time notifications and recommended tactics to ensure the environment is operating at optimal levels at all times.

“At Quest, we pride ourselves on delivering the software tools, both on premises and in the cloud, that address our customers’ toughest technology challenges,” said Ronnie Wilson, President and GM, Quest DP | KACE. “With the new Data Protection Portal, we’re giving MSPs and enterprise customers a simple, single-pane-of-glass data protection management console so they can monitor and protect an increasingly complex backup and recovery environment, and react quickly in the event of a disaster.”
