Malware Scanning of Attachments Included at No Additional Cost

Revyz, today launched its all new malware scanning capability within its award winning Revyz Data Manager, Configuration Manager product range for Jira, JSM, JSM Assets and Confluence. 

This automated feature intelligently scans all attachments inside your Jira and/or Confluence Cloud during automated backup processes and provides integrated alerts and warnings of suspicious files to admins.  


Viswanathan Venkateswaran, an Atlassian product manager close to this project commented;  “Malware scans enhance system security, minimise data breach risk, detect and stop threats, provide incident insights for efficient response, fortify systems against vulnerabilities, and enable the systems to stay resilient.” 


Additionally, the existing integration of Revyz means that customers can be alerted with tickets inside Jira, enabling this feature to flex the power of automations to ensure that malicious items identified do not slip through any gaps.


Expanded Protection for Jira Service Management (JSM)

Revyz is committed to tight alignment with Atlassian’s JSM suite so has released the following exciting features to expand the scope of data protection;

  • JSM Assets - Advanced Configuration Clone - Assets data is both crucial and sometimes very complex so this feature enables admins to analyze, backup and clone at a level not seen before.
  • JSM Forms Templates - The evolving complexity of JSM data and configuration objects has made data exports and backups challenging in the past - this addition allows for JSM Forms Templates to now be both backed up fully, and included in site to site clones


Expansion of Enterprise Data Protection

For its flagship, Revyz Data Manager (for Jira and Confluence) product, Revyz has also released significant changes that include;

  • Extended Data Retention Periods - customers can now adjust their backup data retention period from the default of one year and choose from 6 month, 1 year and 3 year retention periods.  This enhancement allows customers to align more tightly with their own approach to disaster recovery best practice.
  • Unlimited Storage - the previous ‘soft cap’ on data backup storage has been lifted and replaced with a newly formulated fair-use data storage model*
  • Forever Archive - Revyz has partnered with AWS to enable in-app connectivity to AWS Glacier for long term archival purposes (**Beta available by application)

Speaking from Team’24 - “When we talk to enterprise clients and solution partners about their strategic challenges with cloud - the topics of cyber-risk, compliance pressures and the need for more customization are common” say’s Revyz CTO, Sanket Parlikar. “This major update marks a significant step for us in delivering our promise of creating a broad range of security features for Atlassian Cloud, far beyond backing data up.”


Advanced Analytics for Jira Configuration

Revyz Configuration Analytics Dashboard has had a revamp which now allows an admin to more deeply and easily audit changes in configurations between sites (e.g. Sandbox to Prod), or between previous versions of backed up configuration and a live site.


Releases Available to Customers Immediately

At the time of this press release, existing Revyz users will be able to immediately take advantage of these features and can learn more by visiting support.revyz.io

As many of these features require configuration change, updates to terms and conditions and opt-in - the features will not take effect in your Revyz system until they have been configured.
