Providing Enterprises with an Automated View of Cybersecurity Protection

Kirkland, WA – Bocada LLC, an award-winning backup monitoring and reporting automation solution, has announced the release of its newest built-in report, the Bytes Variance Report. Organizations using the report will now have an automated way to identify unusual spikes and valley in bytes transferred for successful backups. Monitoring variances helps to signal potential IT environment issues like ransomware attacks affecting multiple systems.

The Bytes Variance Report is designed to allow users to identify unusual backup activity compared to historical norms, including absolute bytes and percent bytes over and under average byte volumes. As with all Bocada reports, the Bytes Variance Report is highly configurable, allowing users to: determine how historical averages are calculated; examine only certain clients or servers; and zero in on backups during select date range. By offering backup admins an automated way to pinpoint jobs that may have succeeded but still have some underlying issues, the report is a proactive tool for identifying potential cybersecurity issues in enterprise environments.

Backup as a service bytes variance reporting

According to Matt Hall, Bocada’s enterprise sales leader, the latest report aims to support growing proactive efforts to guarding against cybersecurity attacks. “Proactive asset protection has been a major reason why reports like our AWS, CMDB and VM Protection Analysis Reports have been so popular with existing customers. By releasing the Bytes Variance Report, we’re extending this proactive oversight and giving users an additional way to identify potential issues impacting data protection and security.”

The Byte Variance Report is available in Bocada 20.1.4. To learn more about Bocada’s new Byte Variance Report, email us at or call +1-425-898-2400.
