Cyber resilience: Where data protection meets data security. When it comes to data, NetApp is the expert you want on your side. Wherever your data resides, data-centric security helps you detect, protect, and recover without missing a beat.

Why NetApp for cyber resilience?

NetApp looks at the problem of cyber resilience from the inside out. They combine data protection with data security, so your organization can bounce back from a cyberattack. Even if an intruder manages to breach the perimeter or an insider takes malicious action, your data is covered—because it has protection that’s built in rather than bolted on as an afterthought.


With NetApp® ONTAP® data management software, you get built-in detection capabilities. By being able to automatically detect a cyberattack when it begins, you can prevent it from spreading throughout your environment.

Built-in workload and data entropy monitoring, along with alerts about unexpected changes in NetApp Snapshot™ reserve size or storage efficiency, can all help detect a possible ransomware attack. With the NetApp Cloud Insights ability to detect user behavior anomalies, combined with ONTAP intelligence, you can identify bad actors and abnormal storage behavior. The NetApp Active IQ® Digital Advisor tool helps identify the best practices in your environment to achieve the best possible outcome.


To fight back against hackers, you need protection at every access point, with a tamperproof way to safeguard your data if it is compromised. NetApp features such as read-only Snapshot copies, indelible SnapLock® file locking, SnapMirror® data replication, and malicious file screening with FPolicy create highly effective preventive measures to keep your data safe during an attack. If attackers do make it past your perimeter, they won’t be able to alter your data in any way.


The first thing that cybercriminals do when they hack in to an account is to delete backup copies and then encrypt the primary data, making it impossible for an organization to restore its data. It all adds up to high ransom payments and long and costly downtime.

ONTAP SnapLock prevents Snapshot copies from being deleted, so you reliably have an untouched backup to restore from. And with NetApp technology, you can restore petabytes of data in minutes, avoiding downtime and costly ransom payments.

Take the next step toward cyber resilience

Ransomware attacks are part of the digital world. A proper cyber resilience strategy with NetApp data protection and security technologies at the foundation can help you stay safe and connected.
