Introducing APIs for Reports

We've added APIs for reports in our common reporting framework. Now, as per your requirements, you can quickly get report data.

  • Run narrowed-down diagnostics using filters to provide evidence during audits.
  • Build personalized reports or a view to monitor all your data.

With these new APIs, you'll have more flexibility and control over your reporting.

Enhancement

UDA for VMware: Added sudo user support for Linux virtual machines

You can now provide sudo user credentials for a non-root user while using UDA for Linux virtual machines. This enhancement thus offers more flexibility and eliminates the restriction of using only root credentials for UDA.

For more information, see Unusual Data Activity.

Customer action required: Upgrade the VMware proxy to version 6.3.2-359254.

New Feature

Unusual Data Activity (UDA) support for SharePoint and OneDrive

You can now define the UDA settings for anomaly detection for your backed-up SharePoint and OneDrive resources from Cyber Resilience > Security Events > Settings page.

Based on the defined settings, the UDA algorithm detects malicious, intentional, or unknown activities for the number of files that are added, encrypted, deleted, or modified and subsequently generates alerts, thus providing efficient data resiliency from threats.

You can review the alerts from the Security Events > Overview > Unusual Data Activity section and take appropriate action to resolve the risk to ensure the backed-up data is safe.

►Here is a quick preview of UDA for SharePoint and OneDrive.

Enhancement

Rollback Actions support for manually deleted snapshots

With Rollback Actions, you can now rollback manually deleted snapshots for Endpoints and SaaS Apps within a configurable rollback window. By default, the Rollback Actions window is configured for 7 days.

The manually deleted snapshots are available for rollback for the specified days before they get permanently deleted. 

This capability allows the administrator to revert malicious or unintended deletes without data loss and enables rapid restoring productivity. 

If you have consciously triggered the deletes, the snapshots get permanently deleted after the rollback window expires.

Note: Currently, rollback action support for manually deleted snapshots is available only for Endpoints and SaaS Apps - Exchange Online, Gmail, OneDrive, Shared Drives, and SharePoint snapshots.
