NovaStor Increases Security in NAS Devices

NovaBACKUP now capable of automatic backup of critical data to dedicated password protected areas.

(PresseBox) (Hamburg / Germany, Zug / Switzerland, ) Data protection and backup specialist NovaStor has just released the latest version of their NovaBACKUP SMB product line for workstations, servers and virtual machines. Version 12.5 offers enhanced backup of critical data to NAS devices making it easier to be compliant with corporate security policies.

Automatic and Secure Backup to NAS-File Systems

In IT environments with several users or user groups, password protected NAS directories are often implemented. With NovaBACKUP version 12.5 the NAS directory is available for backups independent of individual users’ sign-in status. NovaBACKUP 12.5 registers automatically at the selected NAS directory and carries out the backup as scheduled.

NovaStor’s extended NAS support increases the flexibility and reliability of data backup to NAS devices. The software supports “plug and play” of NAS devices as well as several other popular storage devices.

“NAS storage devices have become extremely popular with small businesses, but minor complications in everyday use frequently hinder the efficient use of the devices. The extended NAS security support in NovaBACKUP version 12.5 ensures that our customers can fully utilize all the benefits of their NAS devices for data security and data availability,“ states Stefan Utzinger, CEO NovaStor.


Version 12.5 of NovaBACKUP Professional, Server, Business Essentials and BE Virtual is available for download from NovaStor’s website. Users can activate the new version with license keys starting version 12.0. Customers using previous versions may obtain an upgrade to take advantage of the benefits of recent developments. The new optimized NAS support is also available for NovaBACKUP xSP and NovaBACKUP Remote Workforce.
