Parablu, a global provider of SaaS-based data protection and management solutions for endpoints, on-premises, and cloud environments, today announced a multi-year agreement with Microsoft that integrates engineering, go-to-market activities, and co-selling of Parablu's BluVault and the Ransomware Defense Suite Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings.
Parablu will leverage Microsoft Cloud infrastructure and services –– Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 to deliver scalable, secure, cost-efficient, and cyber-resilient data management and protection solutions. Parablu's patent-protected zero- and low-cost storage options will not only help businesses effectively address today's economic challenges, but also deliver proven data security for endpoints and Microsoft 365 –– backed by the global scale, durability, and security of the Microsoft cloud. Parablu's BluVault offering in combination with the Ransomware Defense Suite is designed to quickly detect and recover from cyber-attacks such as ransomware using early detection techniques, accelerated recovery options, file/device quarantining features, as well as e-Discovery, making it easier for customers as well as AI tools to find and use this data effectively.
"With more knowledge workers now working remotely, the number of endpoints has grown exponentially –– increasing the likelihood of ransomware and other malicious threats," said Parablu Chief Strategy Officer Randy De Meno. "This alliance empowers Microsoft and its ecosystem of partners to deliver proven heterogeneous data management, backup and data security solutions built for OneDrive for Business and Microsoft Azure, while giving customers a proactive defense against malicious actors. Today's announcement proves that innovation and cost efficiency in data security can be accomplished in collaborative fashion with Microsoft using their proven infrastructure."
Allison West Hughes, Microsoft CVP of Digital Acquisition added, "Parablu's focus on delivering innovative, cyber-resilient, data management and protection SaaS capabilities using Microsoft Azure and Microsoft 365 instantly equips all of our customers with best-of-breed options to manage and protect their most used devices and applications –– their endpoints and Microsoft 365. We've been greatly impressed by Parablu's innovation and their "All-In" approach with the Microsoft cloud infrastructure while enabling customers to securely store and AI-leveraged functionality using protected copies of their data."
"This collaboration with Microsoft enables Parablu to deliver best-of-breed solutions combining zero-trust security, zero-knowledge encryption, and zero-cost storage from the best data centers leveraging leading-edge, scalable, and highly secure infrastructure," said Anand Prahlad, CEO of Parablu. "We look forward to collaborating with Microsoft to innovate and expand our offering to cover more data sources, while continuing to leverage the Microsoft Azure cloud and the cutting-edge services it provides."
This collaboration builds on Parablu's recent recognition by G2 as the best online solution compared to 158 other backup products in nearly all key categories and robust experience with storage, data management and security, while leveraging the capabilities of Azure and Microsoft 365. BluVault's cutting edge features such as platform independent granular restores, point-in-time recovery, cloud-cloud restores, rapid recovery, as well as new innovations that automatically tier data across OneDrive and Azure, will all be served out of the Microsoft cloud. The new agreement includes plans to enhance Parablu's SaaS offering with various Azure Services including Azure OpenAI Service.
Brian Bellows, analyst at Piper Sandler said, "Frequently abrasive economic times often spark innovation and growth. Microsoft's partnering with Parablu while enabling robust technical and secure data capabilities may be another example of Microsoft sparking ecosystem success and growth within the tech sector."

We are thrilled to partner with Snyk to combine our code to cloud security capabilities with their developer-first approach to secure code and open source dependencies.”
“We’re excited to further our relationship with Legit Security,” said Jill Wilkins, Senior Director Global Alliances, Snyk. “As the demand for developer security grows, we are always looking to expand our partner ecosystem and help businesses all over the world capitalize on that opportunity.

DirectDefense, Inc., a leading information security services company, today announced its partnership with Claroty, the cyber-physical systems protection company. Claroty empowers organizations with unmatched visibility, protection, and threat detection to secure their Extended Internet of Things (XIoT), a vast network of cyber-physical systems across industrial, healthcare, and commercial environments.
As digital transformation efforts have intensified over the last decade, a broad range of XIoT assets – including operational technology (OT), the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), building management systems (BMS) and enterprise IoT – are now interconnected. While this drives innovation, resilience, sustainability and numerous other business benefits, the XIoT can also increase organizations’ attack surface area and risk exposure if not properly secured, and solutions intended solely for OT, IT, or any other specific use case are insufficient. Without holistic, comprehensive visibility and security, organizations may face costly downtime, as well as negative impacts on critical outcomes such as patient care and manufacturing process integrity.
“By adding Claroty to our services offering, customers in the industrial, healthcare and commercial industries can better secure their XIoT environments,” said Jim Broome, President and CTO of DirectDefense. “Time and time again we hear the challenges these industries face with the proliferation of connected devices and the difficulty managing and securing them. The Claroty platform provides the required visibility and protection and with our 24x7 SOC managing those alerts in partnership with our Connected Systems team, customers will elevate their security posture and increase their cyber resiliency.”
Claroty tackles the risks posed by the explosion of connectivity between the cyber and physical worlds with its flagship product, the Claroty Platform. This unified XIoT cybersecurity solution is tailored to the requirements of healthcare, industrial, and public sector environments, deployable via on-premise, hybrid, or cloud/SaaS options, and integrates with customers’ existing infrastructure to provide a full range of controls for visibility, risk and vulnerability management, threat detection, and secure remote access.
“When it comes to securing cyber-physical systems, the number one priority is cyber and operational resilience,” said CJ Radford, Global Vice President of Channel & Alliances for Claroty. “With the strength of Claroty’s technology and the support of DirectDefense’s 24x7 managed services, customers are equipped to proactively secure assets and devices, quickly respond to and recover from incidents, and preserve operational continuity and safety within their XIoT environments.”
