Recovering Fast from Ransomware Attacks: The Magic of an Immutable Backup Architecture

Summary Ransomware has been blasting my news feeds on a daily basis for years. Each article details the story of an organization that can no longer access their business critical data. Where the attackers have crippled their victims by encrypting access to production files and storage devices. According to the Emsisoft Malware Lab, ransomware attacks in 2019 “impacted at least 966 government agencies, educational establishments and healthcare providers” at a potential cost in excess of $7.5 billion. Whilst cyber security teams have invested in a myriad of protection tools, extortionists continue to find new mechanisms to encrypt organizations’ data.

Advanced ransomware is now targeting backups – modifying or completely wiping them out – eliminating your last line of defense and driving large ransom payouts. Rubrik’s uniquely immutable filesystem natively prevents unauthorized access or deletion of backups, allowing IT teams to quickly restore to the most recent clean state with minimal business disruption.

The Importance of Cyber Resiliency During a Global Crisis

Cybercriminals have been busy exploiting global crises.

In fact, advanced ransomware attacks target backup files—and the probability of a ransom payout increases when your last line of defense is compromised.  Recovery is typically complex and time-consuming for organizations relying on legacy backup solutions; identifying the scope of the attack, locating the most recent clean data, and restoring quickly can be a significant investment for any organization. And with today’s ransomware strains, backups themselves are often encrypted or deleted from an attack.   Customers across industries leverage Rubrik as part of their ransomware remediation strategy to ensure minimal data loss and business…
