Veeam has announced the availability of Veeam Availability Suite 9.5 Update 3. The new software allows enterprises to replace legacy backup offerings and manage availability for all workloads — virtual, physical, and cloud from a single Veeam “pane of glass".

Former Gizmodo writer Mat Honan lived every tech geek's worst nightmare when he got hacked last weekend. All his accounts were compromised and his computers were wiped with no backup.
