Commvault acquires Appranix, advancing cyber resilience for global enterprises


Commvault on Tuesday said it acquired Appranix, a provider of cloud cyber resilience technology, as a way to help businesses reduce the time they need to recover after a cyberattack or system outage.

Tinton Falls-based Commvault is helping customers reduce downtime by recovering data rapidly via automation and next-generation cleanroom offerings.

But fast data recovery is only part of the equation, Commvault said. There are dependencies that are necessary to rebuild critical cloud applications, the data those applications rely on and the cloud infrastructure that runs it all. Dependencies include networking, DNS configuration, application load balancing, security group access and much more. Appranix automates all of this and can reduce the time it takes to rebuild from days or weeks to, in some cases, hours or minutes.

“We are taking resilience to the next level by marrying Commvault’s extensive risk, readiness, and recovery capabilities with Appranix’s next-generation cloud-native rebuild capabilities,” Sanjay Mirchandani, CEO and president, Commvault, said. “We are delighted to welcome Appranix to the Commvault family.”

“Joining the Commvault family is a thrilling and natural next step for Appranix as we jointly change the market,” Govind Rangasamy, Appranix founder and CEO, said. “We share a common vision to go beyond traditional backups and disaster recovery. Our combined technologies will offer comprehensive, unmatched resilience capabilities for businesses globally.”

The Appranix team will join Commvault imminently and the integration of Appranix’s technology into Commvault’s portfolio is expected to be completed by this summer. In the meantime, customers can leverage Appranix for their cloud application discovery and rebuild requirements, via the AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure marketplaces.
