The company also has added support for AES 256-bit encryption, and the software can encrypt data as it moves from disk to tape.
CA also has upgraded CA XOsoft Replication and CA XOsoft High Availability. XOsoft Replication is a real-time continuous data protection (CDP) software. XOsoft High Availability performs near-real-time fail-over and restoration of data. Both components are expected to ship in the coming weeks.
These modules also come with a centralized management front end. Administrators also can allow users to recover their own files and e-mails. CDP repository makes finding information faster and easier, saves time, and reduces administrative burden by allowing end-users to recover their own data and e-mail messages.
CA's revamped product line has its hands full. Symantec's Backup Exec rules the roost, and Microsoft is making inroads with its Windows-centric, price-competitive Data Protection Manager product line.
