As ransomware attacks continue to grow, so do organizational investments in fighting these threats. In a recent Evaluator Group survey, 87% of respondents say they plan to spend money on technologies that specifically target ransomware protection in the next year.
So, why is building ransomware resilience into your hybrid cloud so important?
The most expensive aspect of a ransomware attack is the downtime that follows. And without the ability to bounce back, your organization could be down for more than 16 days. But with resilience built into your hybrid cloud, you can restore petabytes of data in minutes, getting back up and running quickly and minimizing business impact.
Your employees need access to data to do their jobs—and hackers know it. Policies and roles that restrict access to data can help, but too many limitations often impede employee productivity. With ransomware-resilient solutions integrated into your hybrid cloud, you can use early detection, behavior analysis, and automated action to detect and respond instantly to suspicious activity. That means employees can do their jobs, without sacrificing the security of your data.
We don’t see a difference between your data strategy and your ransomware strategy. Evaluator Group calls our architecture “data-centric security,” meaning that data is protected when in use, when in transit, and when at rest—across edge, core, and cloud environments. Our solutions also provide a logical air gap to prevent data from being deleted by malicious actors—even by administrator accounts. When your storage is tamper-proof, your data is resilient from the inside out.
Forget the bolted-on ransomware protections you’re looking to invest in. We’ve got a better strategy. Our solutions for cyber resilience are built in at the data layer. They’ll be core to your strategy, not an afterthought.
