Surprise, surprise, award season and red-carpet looks are not the only things to look forward to this quarter. FR 11.23 has something for everybody. Unveiling the Feature Release highlights in 3, 2, 1… Security Ransomware protection of DR BackupsKnow what Ashton Kutcher must’ve done to protect his Cheetos stash from his wife Mila Kunis? Trusted Commvault with his DR Cheetos collection. When Mila comes near his DR backup collection, the location gets locked automatically. So, when everything’s sabotaged, secretly knowing that your DR backups remain intact will make you look at the glass as half full. It’s a Commvault thing.If you know, you know. If you don’t, may I suggest that you watch the Cheetos super bowl commercial? Integration with CyberArkSure, one’d stand out when one admits that she doesn’t like Schitt’s Creek. It’s not funny.

So long, farewell.....
Fellow community members, Today is my last working day at Commvault, and I wanted to leave you all with a message of my appreciation and gratitude. 2 years ago, we were just about to launch an extremely ambitious project: a new and improved Commvault community. Our previous community never received much attention, so our expectations were a bit tempered. When the community launched, we could not have been happier! Fast forward 2 years and we have over 9000 members, with over 4000 topics! I'm beyond proud of everything we have all built together. Our world grows smaller every day. I have no doubt that this won't be the last time we speak with each other (there's always LinkedIn :-)). Keep helping each other and growing together. This community's best days are still ahead! Forever grateful,Mike
