Commvault arranges to buy Appranix

Cyber resilience and data protection solution provider Commvault has arranged to acquire cloud cyber resilience company Appranix for an undisclosed sum.

Under the agreement, Appranix will join the Commvault group of companies, effective immediately. The Appranix product suite will then be progressively integrated into the Commvault portfolio.

Commvault president and CEO Sanjay Mirchandani said Appranix products will complement Commvault’s existing solutions for helping customers rapidly recover after a ransomware attack, by helping automate the management of dependencies that are required for rebuilding critical cloud applications.

“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,” he said. “We are delighted to welcome Appranix to the Commvault family.”

The Appranix product suite can help companies resolve dependencies such as networking, DNS configuration, application load balancing and security group access, in some cases reducing the time it takes to rebuild following a ransomware attack from days or weeks to hours or minutes, Mirchandani said.

Appranix Founder and CEO Govind Rangasamy added that the two companies are natural partners. “We share a common vision to go beyond traditional backups and disaster recovery,” he said. “Our combined technologies will offer comprehensive, unmatched resilience capabilities for businesses globally.”
