Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Everywhere
Across all product interfaces—GUI, CLI, SSH—further reducing attack surfaces.
Multi-Person Authorization for Critical Operations
Prevents malicious operations (data deletions, etc.) from being performed if a user’s workstation is compromised—a designated approver must confirm before the operation can proceed.

Lower the risk from zero-day threats with integrated malware scanning during a restore, along with new support for cloud VMs and Universal Shares.
Anomaly Detection Enhancements
New ability to identify system-level or user behavior anomalies using ML and audit trails.
Expanded S3 Immutability Support
Immutable object lock support available for IBM Cloud Object Storage, Data Core Cloud Cluster Storage, and NetApp Storage Grid.
Extend CSI-Based Snapshot Support
Support backup from snapshot for block-based and file-based storage in the same namespace allowing for parallel stream recovery and up to a 218% performance gain restore.
Enhanced Media Server Elasticity and Intelligence
Optimize spin-up to incrementally improve efficiency with the smallest deployment of a media server image.
