Enhanced VM Security

Use different features like application-consistent processing for backup and replication as well as file-level recovery in NAKIVO Backup & Replication without using individual VM credentials. The solution automatically retrieves the VM agent’s unique ID and certificate and uses a custom master password to connect to a VM. This reduces security risks during data protection activities.

Simplified VM Deployment

Create new virtual machines that already have the persistent agent installed by using pre-configured VM templates. This allows you to protect VM information and streamline the VM creation process across different departments in your organization.
