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…

Fortune 500 Consumer Retail Company Simplifies Data Protection with Rubrik

At VMworld 2016, I sat down with one of our customers at a Fortune 500 consumer retail company to discuss how they are using Rubrik and the benefits they have seen. As a result, they have wiped out management complexity for their backup and recovery environment and created a plan to expand their global footprint. What type of backup challenges were you experiencing? Our team was looking to simplify backup and recovery. We were previously using multiple solutions and were frustrated by the time needed to train employees let alone recover data. It just wasn’t feasible, and we needed faster recovery times. Additionally, our previous solution was extremely expensive. We have two heavy data centers, and we were running out of runway in our remote locations as well as our local locations. To expand storage space within our former solution would have been very costly. What sold you on Rubrik? While we were evaluating other solutions, when we saw your product, it spoke for itself. That was the biggest thing. I don’t think anyone on our team could effectively know how to use our previous product. With Rubrik, I can take anyone off the street, and in less than hour,…

Backup Wars: The Dawn of Next-Generation Data Protection

Update: New Backup Wars video out on Episode IV: Star Wars – Backup Wars Edition. Click here! Some of you may have witnessed the epic battle between Batman and Superman last weekend. Well, we leave the interpretation of “epic” to you. Today, we are showing you a battle that is not in theatres. In honor of World Backup Day, we bring back your favorite superhero in data protection, Mr. Awesome Backup, in “Backup Wars.” In the world of backup and recovery, Mr. Awesome Backup ends the drought and restores innovation to defeat Mr. Flakey Backup.
