We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Backup and recovery have been great, but I love having the ability to keep the hybrid type build which they offer.""Works in the background and users are able to perform restores.""Code42 Next-Gen DLP is scalable.""Low system overhead, setting retention policies, ease of use""It required very little ongoing maintenance once setup.""It has quite a bit of flexibility in configuring backup sets.""t has a very user friendly status bar with common errors and has logs built in to the console so we can review the issues or status of CrashPlan.""It had the ability to preseed by sending in a data drive and could restore by sending the user a data drive."

"It is a very stable product. The cost is similar to that of other enterprise solutions.""Every time we go and try to get a file, we can get it. Restores are quick and the data is always there.""We do not lose data. That is why we are using this product and have a backup in place.""We have a very good team of administrators who know the product perfectly and are able to manage it on a day-to-day basis.""It seems very scalable and robust. It can do what we require it to do.""It is scalable beyond anything my customers ever aspire to.""Regarding technical support, if one has the entire enterprise support, I would rate it a nine out of ten...Stability-wise, I rate the solution an eight out of ten.""It helps our customers protect their data, keep it long-term, and feel pretty secure about it, basically sleeping well at night."

"What I think could be improved is how I get support.""​Due to recent changes that effectively abandoned an entire segment of their user base, I no longer trust nor can recommend Code42 products.""More security would be nice, I would love to be able to remotely brick a stolen laptop and it's hard disk drive (HDD).""The application, written in Java, required far more system resources on a Client than other solutions.""Reporting could use an overhaul. It is very limited.""You can't always filter out data that you'd like to.""Java, please get rid of Java.""I would like to see more flexibility on privileges, perhaps create another kind of admin for regions. Also, I would like the ability to access logs without having to be on the actual device or a super-admin."

More Code42 Incydr Cons →

"Stability is very good now. It used to be rocky years ago.""For Spectrum Protect Plus, I would like to see more enhanced reporting features and integration with Spectrum Protect.""The most important feature which I wish to be added involves the GUI, the user interface.""The reporting could be better.""Our new leadership has pushed us to go more toward the cloud, so we are definitely going to leverage anything we can in that direction.""They took some of the funding off of it for a while. Therefore, instead of being a market leader, they took their position for granted. Then some competitors developed new bells and whistles that they advertise, and due to that lag a few years ago, there are not the resources to explain the differences.""The installation process could be simplified.""I need to have more than two instances working together. I need a worldwide grid able to have replication between three, four, or five instances."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "They were the best solution and surprisingly enough, the cheapest."
  • "It is 100% worth the cost to get and keep the support, especially when setting it up."
  • "It used to be a good solution for SOHO in particular as it had unlimited storage for a reasonable price. However, their pricing model has changed and they are now primarily targeting enterprise users."
  • "The pricing is reasonable. It's my understanding that the cost is about $7 for unlimited storage in the cloud per server."
  • "It was expensive. It was more expensive than Eureka, and it was more expensive than Barracuda Backup, but what we got was a full team. They didn't come in and nickel and dime us. They provided the assistance we needed. They didn't say that they need to charge us for something or it is going to take another statement of work. It was all bundled into it... We pay for the software maintenance. It is probably 18% or 20% of the license fee for rev releases."

  • "Technical support is pretty good. It is doing fine, but you pay for it."
  • "Licensing can be either complicated or simple depending on what type of licensing you wish to use and what works best for your environment."
  • "At scale, the consumption license (per TB) is very expensive."
  • "Use capacity licensing. It's easier and cheaper."
  • "We worked our licensing into a capacity model, which is nice. Now, everything is much simpler to manage from a licensing perspective.​"
  • "We chose IBM Spectrum Protect, because they actually have something called MSP pricing, which means managed services provider pricing. The pricing was attractive, and it seems to be a platform that IBM is totally investing on in terms of new functions and new capabilities."
  • "Spectrum Protect is not expensive, and it is simple to use."
  • "It is very scalable, but the downside is that it costs money."

    Detect file exfiltration via web browsers, USB, cloud apps, email, file link sharing, Airdrop, and more. See how files are moved and shared across your entire organization – without the need for policies, proxies or plugins. Incydr automatically identifies when files move outside your trusted environment, allowing you to easily detect when files are sent to personal accounts and unmanaged devices.

    Incydr prioritizes file activity based on 120+ contextual Incydr Risk Indicators (IRIs). This prioritization works on day 1 without any configuration. Incydr’s risk scoring logic is use case-driven and transparent to administrators. Incydr uses Watchlists to programmatically protect data from employees who are most likely to leak or steal files, such as departing employees.

    Take action with appropriate responses to contain, resolve and educate on detected risk. Use Incydr Flows or SOAR integrations to initiate response controls that are proportionate to an activity’s risk severity. You’ll stop data leaks without getting in the way of employee collaboration and sanctioned file activity.

    Improving your Insider Risk posture requires a change in employee behavior. Code42 Instructor provides bite-sized training to employees, delivered when they need it. Use Instructor in tandem with Incydr to send responsive video lessons when employees put data at risk. You’ll ensure appropriate data governance and compliance with security standards and corporate policies as well as report on the positive impact of your Insider Risk Management program.
