Any backup is only as reliable as its ability to restore business data and
applications when they are needed most. The SonicWALLŽ Continuous Data
Protection (CDP) Series offers the only complete end-to-end backup and
recovery solution for SMBs. An ideal replacement for tape-based systems, CDP
provides foolproof, intuitive, continual protection. No other solution
offers such comprehensive protection while still being so easy-to-manage.
The key features and benefits of a SonicWALL backup and recovery solution
Continuous Data Backup
CDP detects new or changed files, even when files are open. When this
information is found, CDP immediately and automatically replicates it to
dedicated hardware locally. Unlike most traditional backup products, no user
intervention or additional software or hardware is required with CDP, and risk
of data loss is virtually nonexistent because there are no backup windows.
A clear differentiator for CDP is its "no-touch" offsite backup feature,
which uses SSL encryption, advanced compression, and backup of only binary
differences. This offsite feature protects data against the risks of fire,
theft, misplacement and other issues relating to tape or CD-based backup.
Instant Recovery and File Versions
From CDP's simple interface, users have access to point and click data
recovery features. The intelligent CDP software saves and time-stamps file
versions of each file so they are easy to locate.
Connect an unlimited number of computers, laptops, and/or servers to CDP for
real-time CDP. Selected PCs and files are monitored every minute of the day for
new or changed information.

without the need to integrate third party software modules. Out-of-the-box &

Offsite data is secured by the same AES 256-bit encryption technologies
implemented by major financial institutions and government agencies. SonicWALL
CDP also utilises public-key encryption and digital certificates as an
additional layer of protection. Finally, every SonicWALL CDP customer has secure
e-mail address and password authentication.
The SonicWALL Enterprise Manager provides system activity monitoring and
viewing of all agents that are active on SonicWALL CDP. IT Administrators
benefit from file-level visibility into every agent connected to SonicWALL CDP
to enforce consistent backup policies and control features available to
individual end users.
IT Administrators can manage SonicWALL CDP, recover a deleted file for a
customer, or view vital statistics from a remote location connected to the LAN.
This saves the IT Administrator valuable time and resources instead of having to
physically visit the customer's site for a simple file recovery like other
Bare Metal Recovery (BMR)
SonicWALL BMR software creates an exact image of an entire server or
workstation - including the operating system files, programs, databases, and
settings, enabling the recovery of an entire system in minutes. Moreover, its
wizard-driven graphical user interface (GUI) is easy-to-use, making it an ideal
application for SMB customers.
Leveraging the SonicWALL Bare Metal Recovery software, CDP solution provides
local data archiving for businesses that need to store snapshots of their data
for extended periods of time to meet industry and government compliance
regulations. Customers can explore their archives and restore an individual file
SonicWALL CDP has compression technology that achieves compression ranges
from 2:1 to 5:1 depending on file type. This allows users to utilise their disk
space very efficiently and creates smaller file transfers on the network.
SonicWALL is committed to safeguarding business data. To that end, SonicWALL
CDP meets and complies with all federal and industry regulations on the
protection, accessibility, and retention of information. But SonicWALL goes
beyond the minimum requirements for security and retention of information.
Because SonicWALL's business is data security and retention, we take government
and industry regulations seriously.
