Commvault has unveiled Commvault Cloud, powered by Metallic AI, a platform that "is changing the game in how IT and security teams can radically improve cyber resilience in an era of non-stop ransomware and malicious cyberattacks," according to the company.

Along with this, Commvault has established partnerships with cybersecurity and technology companies to deliver artificial intelligence-based data protection to its customers via Commvault Cloud, the company noted.

Commvault made these announcements at its Commvault Shift virtual cyber resilience event, which runs through November 9.

What Is Commvault Cloud?

Commvault Cloud combines Commvault's SaaS and software offerings into one platform, the business stated. It enables users to predict threats, recover from cyberattacks and reduce the time it takes to respond to threats.

Furthermore, Commvault Cloud's architecture enables users to secure and recover their data, across any workload or infrastructure and to and from any location, the company indicated.  

Commvault Cloud Users Can Access an AI Co-Pilot

With Commvault Cloud, users can utilize Autonomous Resilience, aka Arlie, an AI co-pilot that can respond to inquiries in plain, simple language, the company stated. Arlie engages with generative AI models that consolidate information and reports and provide users with responses.

In addition, Arlie integrates on the backend with the Azure OpenAI Service, Commvault said. It also offers the following features:

  • Active insights that give users real-time threat analysis and report summaries.
  • Code assistance that consists of offering a "no-code" way to build an integration or code an action.
  • Custom walk-throughs that help users set up, customize and tune Commvault Cloud to their specifications.
  • Root cause remediation, which uses generative AI to monitor the performance of Commvault Cloud, find issues and produce real-time recommendations on how to optimize cyber resilience.

Cybersecurity and Technology Companies Offer Commvault Cloud Integrations

Commvault has announced seven Commvault Cloud integrations:

  • Avira, which provides AI- and machine learning-based threat intelligence, prediction, analysis and anti-malware technologies.
  • Darktrace, which provides a Self-Learning AI tool to help IT and security teams detect threats, manage security incidents and restore their systems after cyberattacks.
  • Databricks, which provides an open and unified platform for data and AI.
  • Entrust, which provides KeyControl Key Management Server (KMS) and nShield Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) that deliver key management capabilities and robust, post-quantum ready cryptography.
  • Netskope, which provides data context and visibility from the Netskope Zero Trust Engine.
  • Palo Alto Networks, which provides Cortex XSOAR (eXtended security orchestration, automation and response) to help organizations speed up incident response.
  • Trellix, which provides the Trellix Intelligent Virtual Execution (IVX) sandbox that allows organizations to analyze and inspect malware in isolated environments.

These integrations enable Commvault Cloud to "bring faster, smarter and more connected security insights to organizations around the world," Chief Product Officer Rajiv Kottomtharayil said.
