Kasten by Veeam’s NEW Kasten K10 V6 Introduces Enterprise-Grade Ransomware Protection for Kubernetes


New integrations with Veeam Data Platform and cloud native tools, combined with new features including intelligent policies, aim to scale Kubernetes data protection and expand ransomware detection for enterprises

Miami, Fla: VeeamON 2023 — May 29, 2023Kasten by Veeam®, the market leader for Kubernetes backup and disaster recovery, today announced the release of its new Kasten K10 V6.0 Kubernetes data protection platform. The new release includes features that will help customers scale their cloud native data protection more efficiently, better protect their applications and data against ransomware attacks, and increase accessibility by adding new cloud native integrations.

Kubernetes was designed to enable greater productivity – helping enterprises scale automation to manage very large deployments found within containerized environments. Kubernetes has now garnered industry-standard status as cloud native architecture fuels widespread application modernization. Now, IT budgets are tightening, and the pressure to do more with less is growing. At the same time, security issues remain top of mind across all business segments, with 85% of all organizations suffering at least one cyber-attack in the past 12 months.

Kasten K10 V6.0 bridges the need for increased operational efficiency and business resiliency in cloud native environments. The solution introduces newly enhanced capabilities to perform backup and disaster recovery with intelligent policies, extend threat detection capabilities, and uphold freedom of choice in terms of selecting best-of-breed components of the underlying infrastructure.

“Enterprises deploying cloud native applications today face two principal challenges. They need to protect their critical assets against cyberattacks while scaling applications and underlying infrastructure in the most efficient manner,” said Gaurav Rishi, Vice President of Product and Partnerships at Kasten by Veeam. “Kasten K10 V6.0 addresses these issues head on, introducing intelligence and automation at all layers of the backup and recovery process with deep ecosystem integrations including Red Hat OpenShift for enterprise grade data protection. We also remove friction from the process by aligning with the tools and processes customers already use.”


New capabilities of Kasten K10 V6.0 include:

“The increasingly intricate and sophisticated nature of Kubernetes clusters makes deploying new services and ensuring adequate data protection for them a daunting task,” said Danny Allan, CTO and Senior Vice President of Product Strategy at Veeam. “With Kasten K10 V6.0 integrated into the Veeam Data Platform, customers can reduce complexity in their Kubernetes deployments, allowing their cloud native environments to reach their full potential. At the same time, the new release helps them double down on data protection and security resilience at a time when they can’t afford to compromise on either factor.”

Kasten by Veeam continues to be the acknowledged leader in the Kubernetes data backup and recovery market, as recognized by many industry accolades. One recent example is the 2023 edition of GigaOm Radar for Kubernetes Data Protection, in which Kasten by Veeam is featured as both a Leader and Outperformer, the only vendor achieving such a distinction for three years in a row since the inception of the report. This explains the considerable and accelerating momentum Kasten by Veeam is enjoying in the marketplace, yielding near triple digit, year-over-year-growth in fiscal year 2022.

General availability of the new Kasten K10 V6.0 is expected in late Q2 and will be featured during both Red Hat Summit and VeeamON 2023, the community event for data recovery experts, taking place online May 22-24 and in person in Miami, Fla. Designed by and built for the backup and recovery professional, attendees will expand their skills, learn how to protect their businesses from ransomware, and share industry knowledge with exclusive content from Microsoft, AWS, Hewlett Packard Enterprise and more.

“As the number of containers running in production continues to increase, organizations need security and data protection capabilities that are able to scale with their deployments. Through our collaboration with Kasten by Veeam, we are providing customers with additional flexibility and choice in how they protect their Kubernetes workloads.” - Kirsten Newcomer, Director, Cloud and DevSecOps Strategy, Red Hat

"Ransomware attacks are more prevalent than ever before, and it is no longer an option for companies to opt for solutions that do not offer the necessary protection, recovery and threat detection capabilities. Kasten by Veeam’s Kasten K10 v6.0 provides detection capabilities, immutable backups and instant recovery to address this, but perhaps more importantly, this release also introduces automation and efficiency capabilities to open the doors for large-scale container protection deployment – an inevitability for any company using containers seriously.” - Johnny Yu, Research Manager, Storage and Computing at IDC
