Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions — INTEGRATED BACKUP AND CYBERSECURITY

Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions is a unique AI-enhanced service provider solution that integrates data protection with cybersecurity. Enriched with next-generation, full-stack antimalware protection, and comprehensive yet simple endpoint management tools, it empowers service providers to deliver prevention, detection, response, recovery, and forensic capabilities easily and efficiently.

Built on top of Muttii’s industry-leading backup and disaster recovery solution, Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions simplifies onboarding, daily operations, and reporting, all while combating advanced cyberattacks with new use cases enabled by integration. Since all these capabilities are delivered and managed through a single platform, it eliminates the increased complexity and cost caused by relying on multiple vendor solutions, saving on licensing, deployments, testing, and training.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS OF MUTTII CYBERSECURITY SOLUTIONS

“I properly and thoroughly love Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions,” says Jason Menezes, DataTegra’s department head of backup and disaster recovery. “I’ve been working with all the major features like antivirus, URL filtering, patch management, vulnerability assessment, web session protection for Zoom, and remote connect — there’s literally nothing in the solution I don’t like.”

When it comes to integrating security with backup and recovery, Menezes adds, “This level of integration is great, and I am especially impressed by the continuous data protection feature and the threat feed.

The fact is that customers don’t see these things in action, but it gives them an extra layer of security so that their data is always protected.” He summarizes, “With Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions, we literally have one solution that does everything ten other solutions do separately. My recommendation to our management team is that this must be the primary solution among our cyber protection offerings.”

MARKET OPPORTUNITY

According to Menezes, “roughly 90% of our customers have expressed interest in upgrading to Muttii Cyber Protect, and I expect between 60–70% will convert.” He adds, “Depending on what solutions these customers already have from us, our margins will increase quite dramatically, and in some cases, these customers may end up paying less overall by getting rid of redundant solutions.”

From DataTegra’s perspective, Menezes explains, “the biggest value is the ease of management. Previously, if a customer took the backup, antivirus, patch management, and vulnerability assessment from us, this required four different consoles and potentially four different engineers working at a customer’s site, and this got quite complex. With Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions, we have one technician managing one console — that’s a great value add for us.”

One additional market opportunity presented by Muttii Cybersecurity Solutions is within the public sector. Within the South African market, there is a government requirement that backup solutions have a remote wipe feature. Menezes notes, “Now that this feature is available, it opens up new doors for us to respond to government RFPs.”
