Must read

Synology unveils ActiveProtect, a new data protection solution offering centralized management, scalability, and ease of use for businesses of all sizes.

Synology announced new ActiveProtect appliances, a purpose-built data protection lineup that combines centralized management with a highly scalable architecture for best-in-class ease of use.

“The launch of ActiveProtect reflects Synology’s unceasing commitment to empowering our users with the tools to manage their most valuable asset—data,” said Philip Wong, Chairman and CEO of Synology. “In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, businesses face unprecedented challenges in safeguarding data. With the new ActiveProtect offering, we aim to empower organizations of all sizes to address cybersecurity challenges head-on.”

ActiveProtect centralizes organization-wide data protection policies, tasks, and appliances to offer a unified management and control plane. Comprehensive coverage for endpoints, servers, hypervisors, storage systems, databases, Microsoft 365, and Google Workspace services dramatically reduces IT blind spots and the necessity of operating multiple data protection solutions.

“Organizations are tasked with maintaining overly complex and costly data protection strategies, and we aim to solve all the challenges at once with ActiveProtect,” stated Jia-Yu Liu, Executive Vice President at Synology. “ActiveProtect is the culmination of extensive research, development, and experience working with our customers. We are confident in delivering a solution exceeding modern businesses’ expectations.”

Easy to deploy and manage

IT teams can quickly deploy ActiveProtect appliances in minutes and create comprehensive data protection plans via global policies using a centralized console. From implementing immutability and air gapping policies to performing recovery procedures, ActiveProtect is designed to be intuitive, significantly reducing operational overhead.

Scalable for any organization

Each ActiveProtect appliance can operate in standalone or cluster-managed modes. Storage capacity can be tiered with the cluster’s Synology NAS/SAN storage solutions, C2 Object Storage, and other ActiveProtect appliances. Additionally, existing Synology Active Backup for Business deployments are manageable from the unified interface, providing high deployment flexibility.
