Kick Ransomware in the Teeth with Polaris Radar

There’s a strong chance that you, a colleague, or a peer at another company has been hit by a ransomware attack. This means that someone penetrated your perimeter defense, likely through human phishing methods or insecure external access (such as RDP), and has landed malicious code within a permissive zone of your production environment. The outcome of these attacks comes in the form of encrypted content (files, folders, operating systems, etc.) that require cryptocurrency payment(s) to make it accessible once more. This pain can hit especially hard when: Identifying where the malicious code exists to remove or neuter it. Scoping out the damage and either paying the “ransom” or restoring data from backup. Determining how to prevent the intrusion from repeating, if possible. Fortunately, we at Rubrik understand this pain all too well. One of our earliest customers, Langs Building Supplies, had their production environment hit by a ransomware snag back in 2016. Their team acted quickly and used the immutable nature of Rubrik’s backups to recover the encrypted data without paying the ransom. Huzzah! Since then, we’ve taken the state of the art to a new frontier with the release of Radar, an application that lives on our Polaris…

Polaris Radar: The Last Line of Defense

Ransomware is getting increasingly more sophisticated, and attacks are getting harder and harder to avoid–even when strong security measures are in place. In fact, over 70% of organizations were infected by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their detection and prevention measures.* Ransomware rapidly mutates into new variants, making it extremely difficult to detect with traditional signature-based approaches. That’s why we built Radar, a Polaris app that increases resilience in the face of cyber attacks. Rubrik’s approach includes multiple layers of defense, such as anomaly detection, data analysis, and instant recovery.   Dealing with Ransomware No one likes having their possessions held for ransom and being blackmailed into paying cash for something that is already theirs. Typically, a data center is infiltrated undetected via an endpoint device from a phishing attack that will begin to rapidly encrypt files based on various criteria. At this point, the victim can either pay the ransom or lose their data. There are three main reasons corporations choose not to pay ransoms: It encourages ransomware hackers to carry out more attacks. It shows that the organization is willing to pay, making them a higher priority target. Paying doesn’t always result in getting the decryption key. Dealing…

Back-to-Back Champions: Rubrik Wins VMworld Best of Show 2018, 2017

Rubrik is honored to have Radar, its newest Polaris application, receive two Best of VMworld 2018 U.S. awards: the Gold Award for Security and Best of Show. This marks the second year in a row that we’ve been named Best of Show, and the third year we’ve won a Gold at a VMworld conference. These awards recognize the most innovative new products in the server virtualization, cloud, and end-user computing markets. This year, a panel of industry experts evaluated 75 products in areas such as innovation, performance, ease of use and manageability, and ability to fill a market gap. Each year, the judges select one product as Best of Show, which “represents the best of the best” among the winners in previous categories. We’re humbled to be considered alongside many innovative companies and view this achievement as a testament to our leadership in the data management and security spaces. To win the Gold Award for security, Radar was weighed against many disruptive products that “monitor and protect hypervisors, cloud workloads, guest OSes and virtual networks and enforce security best practices.” The judges commented that Radar showed we “gave serious thought to security and ransomware monitoring in the data protection space.”…

Introducing Radar: Faster Recovery from Ransomware

Ransomware is on the rise, and it’s only getting smarter. Recent research shows ransomware attacks grew more than 350% annually.* To defend against attacks, many companies typically focus on building a perimeter to prevent malware from ever entering their data center. However, as malware becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s no longer a matter of if  but when an organization will be hit by an attack. While building a perimeter is essential, preventing every threat, every time, across every surface area is a near-impossible task. In fact, 71% of organizations were hit by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their detection and prevention measures.** Once an attack breaks through your defenses, bouncing back quickly is painful. For many IT professionals, this will bring to mind long nights spent trying to detect an attack, analyze the extent of the damage, and restore quickly from backup files. Resiliency should be stronger, and recovery should be faster. The most effective strategy for defending against ransomware is a defense in depth. This approach encompasses a holistic, multi-level ransomware response strategy that incorporates both prevention measures to keep threats out and strong resiliency to minimize downtime when an attack happens. Meet Radar: Recover Faster. Stay Smarter. We’ve been…
