The V-Ray technology allows individual file recovery even on virtual machine backups and deduplication across both physical and virtual machines, Symantec said..
"Typically, you have to mount and restore all files from a virtual machine in order to find the one file you want," Regan said. "Now you can go in from NetBackup and Backup Exec to restore a single file."

Symantec also plans to bring to market self-service recovery and discovery technology for large organizations with NetBackup.
For organizations using backup as their primary tool to recover data, new search capabilities in NetBackup will provide better control and help them identify data that needs to be held for eDiscovery purposes, the company said. Symantec Enterprise Vault 10 will supplement those search capabilities as a complete archiving and eDiscovery product for the legal compliance officer and IT user.
Symantec also partnered with CommonDesk, FaceTime, Hanzo and Socialware, to allow its Enterprise Vault 10 product to automatically archive social media postings for compliance, eDiscovery or corporate governance purposes.
Organizations can comply with requirements for social media communications without restricting or banning the use of those tools.
Another new feature of Enterprise Vault 10 is the Data Classification Service, which leverages Symantec's data loss prevention (DLP) technology. DLP analyzes email content and metadata in an attempt to automatically classify the content and assign it the appropriate archiving and retention policy for that message, or even flag the message to be reviewed for compliance purposes.
"At the web gateway, we filter it. At the archive, we retain it. In the event of an investigation, we give you the tools to search it," Regan said.
The classifications can also be used as filters to speed up the search and review process for eDiscovery, Regan added.
Additionally, customers that have implemented Symantec DLP can share classification policies to simplify the automated classification of information. Enterprise Vault also adds new integration with Symantec's encryption technologies to allow organizations to classify, store, and discover encrypted information.
