Ransomware is a specific and extremely harmful type of malware that criminals use to extort money from private sector organizations and government agencies alike. Typically, ransomware blocks access to your data until a ransom payment is made, after which access is supposed to be regained.

Almost 40% of victims who pay a ransom never get their data back, and 73% of those who pay are attacked again later.

How to protect against ransomware?

Whether you are responsible for protecting computers and data for a small business, hospital, local government, or other organization, it is vital that you be prepared for ransomware attacks. To be prepared, here are five things you need to do:

  • 1

    Plan: An effective strategy is a foundation for a full and speedy resumption of normal operations.

  • 2

    Prevent: Proactive steps, including foundation hardening, application hardening, and ransomware protection.

  • 3

    Monitor: Always be on the lookout for any anomaly, detecting the attack as quickly as possible to reduce its impact.

  • 4

    Restore: Perform fast restores with an intact and secure data copy to quickly resume normal business operations and reduce the ransomware impact.

  • 5

    Test your plan: Do frequent tests to verify you can meet your defined SLAs for high-priority data and applications.

Ransomware has rapidly emerged as the most visible cybersecurity risk playing out across the world, locking up private sector organizations and government agencies alike.

What technology you need to protect from ransomware?

Does your current data protection solution offers this? Find the gaps in your current data management, compare us to our competition and make the decision.

  • Data isolation: Having secondary and tertiary copies of backup storage targets segmented and unreachable directly from the public portions of the environment using our data atomization technology.

  • Air gapped copies: A technique that complements data isolation. Air-gapped networks have no connectivity to public networks. Access is only provided to transfer data, and communication is severed when it is not needed.

  • Robust data protection framework: Authentication, Authorization, and Audit (AAA), is a set of security controls protecting who has access, and what they have access to, while monitoring events and activities for proper security posture.

  • Data immutability: When applying this to your data, it will be available to restore, unchanged and unmodified. Immutability protects against changes from within your applications, as well as outside of your solutions.
