Arcserve and Sophos Announce a Strategic Alliance To Offer All-In-One Data Security and Protection from Cyber-Attacks

  • Global alliance marks the industry’s first means to assure mitigation of cyber-attacks through complete, multi-layered data security and protection
  • Joint solution uniquely combines threat prevention technologies with onsite and offsite business continuity capabilities for an all-in-one solution that can be deployed in 15 minutes

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Arcserve, LLC, the world’s most experienced data protection provider, today announced a global alliance with Sophos, a leader in network and endpoint security, to provide organizations with dedicated protection for backed up data against cyberthreats. Through this collaboration, organizations can now employ the only market solution that integrates anti-ransomware and other threat prevention technologies, such as deep learning AI for both known and unknown malware, and award-winning disaster recovery and high availability capabilities for prevention against data loss. Together, the new solution delivers a multi-layered approach to prevent, protect, and immunize backup data from cyber-attacks.

A report issued by Cybersecurity Ventures predicts the global cost of ransomware to reach $11.5 billion USD in 2019 and $20 billion USD by 2021, with an attack on businesses every 14 seconds by the end of this year. With cybercriminals continuously taking advantage of enterprises to turn profits, this alliance will provide organizations with a two-pronged approach to cyber-readiness and IT resilience. By combining both cybersecurity and data protection capabilities into a single offering, businesses will have a comprehensive solution that fully covers all their infrastructure needs.

The joint solution will be delivered via Arcserve’s award-winning Appliance Series, the only turnkey self-contained appliances for disaster recovery and application availability. Powered by Arcserve Unified Data Protection (UDP), the Arcserve Appliance Series combines flash-accelerated deduplicated storage, robust server processing, and high-speed networking with highly redundant hardware and cloud services.

Arcserve Appliances will integrate Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server, award-winning endpoint protection with artificial intelligence, to deliver a comprehensive protect-in-depth approach to accelerate data, system and application resiliency.

“Increasingly cybercriminals are targeting backup systems as a way to increase the odds that compromised businesses will make a ransom payment. Having dedicated protection from both malware and the latest exploits ensures the backup data will stand strong against the most advanced threats,” said Francois Depayras, Sophos’ vice president of OEM sales and alliances. “Sophos Intercept X for Server provides anti-ransomware, anti-exploit and deep learning technology to provide the highest level of protection. This makes the Arcserve Appliance the most secure solution available in the market.”

“Too many organizations are being forced to have the ‘how do we pay ransom’ conversation. We saw a market gap that needed to be filled, and Sophos was the natural fit. We know data protection and they know cybersecurity,” said Oussama El-Hilali, CTO for Arcserve. “As threats become more difficult to combat, this alliance is transformative in the industry, taking our cyber protection to the next level and providing partners with the opportunity to educate customers on the unique benefits of an integrated, two-pronged defense against cybercrime.”

The integrated solution will be available on the newest Arcserve Appliances in October of 2019. To learn more about the global alliance and new solution, please visit: www.arcserve.com/sophos.

Significant next step to professionalize medical cannabis market: Cansativa and DaVinci announce partnership for development & production of medical cannabis vaporizers

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, Sept. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cansativa GmbH expands its portfolio with its Cansativa Medical Devices business. Medical devices entrepreneur Dr. Markus Haller becomes managing director. In cooperation with DaVinci, Cansativa Medical Devices launches its own cannabis vaporizer developed exclusively for medical purposes.

Cansativa’s mission is to professionalize the medical cannabis industry and to play a pioneering role in this market. A team of health technology specialists at Cansativa Medical Devices is currently developing based on DaVinci’s state-of-the-art evaporator technology and its own intellectual property new certified medical devices. Benedikt Sons, Co-Founder of Cansativa, underlines:

“This partnership brings us a big step closer to the realization of our vision of safe access to medical cannabis for a larger group of patients. With the development of a state-of-the-art medical vaporizer, the young industry will become even more professional.”

Evaporation is particularly fit for medical purposes, as no toxic combustion substances are produced. The active ingredients tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) can thus be efficiently and safely administered. As health insurance companies cover the costs of the medical vaporizers, a fast and easy distribution among patients is possible.

Unlike other medical cannabis wholesalers, Cansativa takes a new approach: Through vertical integration, the company takes on key responsibilities along the entire value chain. With its new product lines, the company consistently expands its business model and demonstrates once again its operational excellence. Cansativa’s founders are delighted to announce Dr. Markus Haller taking over the management of Cansativa Medical Devices. Dr. Markus Haller emphasizes:

“Thanks to this partnership, we have secured access to vaporizers as medical devices for patients worldwide. As an owner-managed company, we aim to have a long-term impact. We bolster our commitment to making the Cansativa Group a sustainable and strong enterprise.”


Cansativa GmbH
Cansativa provides independent market access and extensive warehousing and distribution capacities. Founded in 2017, Cansativa is a GDP-certified pharmaceutical wholesaler licensed for trade in controlled substances and headquartered in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Cansativa is committed to the goal of professionalizing the medical cannabis market, eliminating stigmatization surrounding it, and reducing prices for patients. Since the very beginning, Cansativa has operated its own distribution and fulfillment center, and as one of the “first movers” in the industry, it has become one of the largest importers and distributors of medical cannabis in Germany. From its location in Frankfurt am Main, the company supplies pharmacies and pharmaceutical wholesalers throughout Germany. With the ongoing expansion of a second GMP/GDP site in the Rhine-Main area Cansativa creates even more import, distribution and warehousing capacities. Cansativa’s founding team and newest addition, Cansativa Medical Devices, continues to expand, based on two generations of expertise in the fields of medicine, law, and strategy, as well as engineering and medical devices technology

DaVinci Vaporizer
DaVinci Vaporizer is an American manufacturer of advanced vaporizer products and accessories based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company was founded in 2011 by today’s CEO Cortney Smith. DaVinci has set itself the mission to develop a vaporization experience that delivers unprecedented levels of purity and precision. With a focus on superior craftmanship, the use of finest components or the development of unique software, a unique experience should be created.

US Calls on UN to Demand Unfettered Access to Xinjiang to Investigate Reports of Rights Abuses

The United Nations should demand unfettered access to northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) to investigate reports of the mass incarceration and other rights abuses against ethnic Uyghurs, a top U.S. diplomat said Tuesday.

Speaking at an event on the situation in the XUAR on the side lines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, U.S. Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan said that the U.N. had failed to hold China to account over its policies in the region, where authorities are believed to have held up to 1.5 million Uyghurs and other Muslim ethnic minorities accused of harboring strong religious views and politically incorrect ideas since April 2017.

In June, Vladimir Voronkov, the U.N.’s under-secretary general for counter-terrorism, traveled to the XUAR on an official visit, drawing condemnation from Washington, which said the trip risks lending credence to China’s claims that detentions in the region are related to a counter-terrorism issue, rather than a violation of human rights.

Instead of bolstering the U.N.’s moral authority by resisting Beijing’s cynical offer, we witnessed the erosion of U.N. leadership and a blow to the reputation and credibility of a body we should instead look to as a clear voice of conscience, Sullivan said, adding this must not happen again.

We call on the U.N. to uphold its own values and carry out the many responsibilities we have entrusted to it. They U.N. must seek the immediate, unhindered, and unmonitored access to Xinjiang for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights We urge the U.N. to investigate and closely monitor China’s human rights abuses, including the repression of religious freedom and belief.

Other government should join in demanding that China end its horrific campaign of repression in the XUAR, Sullivan said at the event, during which survivors of the internment camps told their stories to an audience that included a delegation from the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which represents 57 Muslim-majority U.N. member states.

In addition to the camps, Sullivan highlighted pervasive, high-tech surveillance and the involuntary collection of personal data in the XUAR�which he called nothing short of Orwellian�Beijing’s extreme hostility to all faiths, and the ruling Communist Party’s use of counterterrorism as a pretext for its repressive campaign in the region.

Beijing wrongly insists that its actions are undertaken in a humane manner, Sullivan said, noting that China has hosted Potemkin tours in a failed attempt to prove it.

But if there were nothing to hide, diplomats and independent investigators would be allowed to travel freely throughout Xinjiang, and for that matter, Tibet. We must ask ourselves: what is the Chinese Communist Party afraid of? What are they trying to hide?

Zumuret Dawut, a Uyghur woman who was held at a camp in the XUAR from April to June of 2017 and relocated to the U.S. in April this year, told attendees that she was regularly beaten and force-fed medication by guards that made her dizzy during her incarceration, and upon her release was made to renounce her Muslim faith and live with Han Chinese family members who monitored her behavior.

Rishat Abbas, whose sister Gulshan Abbas was taken to a camp in the XUAR in September 2018, told attendees that he believes she was targeted because he had spoken out about human rights abuses in the region.

My family’s story is not unique�almost every Uyghur in the diaspora has friends and family who are detained, some by the dozens, he said.

Monitoring camps

China recently organized two visits to monitor internment camps in the XUAR�one for a small group of foreign journalists, and another for diplomats from non-Western countries, including Russia, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, and Thailand�during which officials dismissed claims about mistreatment and poor conditions in the facilities as slanderous lies.

Reporting by RFA’s Uyghur Service and other media organizations, however, has shown that those in the camps are detained against their will and subjected to political indoctrination, routinely face rough treatment at the hands of their overseers, and endure poor diets and unhygienic conditions in the often overcrowded facilities.

In July, after China’s ambassador to the U.N. invited its human rights czar Michelle Bachelet to visit the XUAR to see for herself what he called education training centers in the region, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) told RFA that she would not accept unless given access to the camps on her own terms.

Sullivan’s comments came as Antonio Guterres, the secretary general of the United Nations, is facing criticism from international rights groups for failing to speak out publicly against China’s mass detentions of Uyghur’s in the XUAR.

In a letter to Guterres dated Sept. 17, five rights groups said that Guterres’ preferred approach to the Chinese government on the XUAR has been to conduct private diplomacy, but noted that Beijing only answers for its actions after intense public pressure, and called on him to urge Chinese authorities to grant Bachelet and U.N. experts prompt and unimpeded access to the camps.

The letter was signed by Human Rights Watch (HRW), Amnesty International, International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), and the World Uyghur Congress (WUC).

Guterres last week rejected claims that he has not condemned Beijing’s mass incarcerations in the XUAR, saying I don’t think anyone has been more persistent and more clear in talking to the Chinese authorities in relation to this issue than myself, and dismissing the suggestion that he had only done discreet diplomacy.

Kelley Currie, head of the Office of Global Criminal Justice at the U.S. State Department, told RFA’s Uyghur Service after Tuesday’s event that the U.S. had decided to use the events here at the U.N. General Assembly to shine a bright light on this, in particular on the U.N.’s failure to speak out and really do anything about this situation.

We’re looking at how we can raise this issue through multilateral venues because we think this is a problem the whole world needs to be paying attention to, not just the United States, she said.

We would just like to see the U.N. stand up for its own values in this situation, take its human rights commitments seriously, and actually speak out to protect these vulnerable populations.

Karen Smith, the U.N.’s Special Adviser on Responsibility to Protect, agreed that the U.N. needs to be granted access to the XUAR so that it can address reports of rights abuses there in a clearer manner.

It’s very, very important for the U.N. experts�particularly OHCHR�to be allowed into China so that an independent assessment can be done, so that afterwards, recommendations can be made using the existing U.N. mechanisms to address this crisis, she said.

US pressure

Mass incarcerations in the XUAR, as well as other policies seen to violate the rights of Uyghurs and other Muslims, have led to increasing calls by the international community to hold Beijing accountable for its actions in the region.

At the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom in Washington in July, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the internment camps in the XUAR one of the worst human rights crises of our time and truly the stain of the century.

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence also slammed the camps where [Uyghurs] endure around-the-clock brainwashing and survivors have described their experience as a deliberate attempt by Beijing to strangle Uyghur culture and stamp out the Muslim faith.

U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback, who moderated a panel at Tuesday’s event, recently told RFA in an interview that countries around the world must speak out on the Uyghur camps, or risk emboldening China and other authoritarian regimes.

The U.S. Senate earlier this month unanimously passed the first legislation by any nation in response to human rights abuses against ethnic Uyghurs in the XUAR, which would authorize regular monitoring of the situation by various government bodies.

The bipartisan Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act, introduced by Senators Marco Rubio of Florida and Bob Menendez of New Jersey, would appoint a special State Department coordinator on the XUAR and require regular reports on the region’s internment camps, surveillance network and security threats posed by an ongoing crackdown on the Uyghur people�if ratified by the House of Representatives.
