Streamlining Data Protection & Cost Management Across Complex Backup Environments

Bellevue, WA – Bocada LLC, an award-winning automation platform for data protection monitoring, announces support for automated discovery of unprotected assets across any asset inventory solution. IT operations professionals using Bocada will now have a near real-time approach for isolating unprotected assets and identifying which assets lack necessary data protection policies or warrant complete decommissioning to optimize storage usage, regardless of what solution their organization uses to store their asset inventories.

By ingesting asset inventories, and automating the comparison of those inventories against backup job activity, Bocada can automatically develop reports that isolate assets with zero data protection protocols in place. Customers using any asset inventory solution, from established software solutions like Cherwell, BMC Remedy / Helix, Nutanix, and ServiceNow to proprietary in-house databases built on SQL Server, DB2, and Postgres, among others, can run this automated cross-referencing for a ready-made punch list of assets that require further investigation. Asset comparisons can run across on-prem and cloud asset inventories, supporting complete asset protection regardless of an organization’s on-prem, hybrid-cloud, or multi-cloud infrastructure.

According to Matt Hall, Bocada’s sales leader, this universal approach to unprotected asset identification aligns with recurring demands for greater automation across IT operations. “A message we keep hearing from our enterprise IT and MSP customers is a need to automate beyond backup monitoring and reporting to other critical data protection operations as well. By automating unprotected asset discovery, Bocada has taken a highly time-intensive, error-prone process and converted it into one that takes just seconds. Data protection professionals can now spend time on far more valuable activities like inspecting unprotected assets and either implementing the right backup protocols or saving money through asset decommissioning.”

Unprotected asset discovery is available to customers using Bocada 21.2.4. To learn more about Bocada’s asset discovery reporting capabilities, email us at or call +1-425-898-2400.
