Virtualization Really Matters

In today's digital landscape, where data is the lifeblood of any business, securing and protecting hypervisor environments is paramount. Hypervisors, such as OpenShift Virtualization and Proxmox VE, play a critical role in virtualized environments.

The threat landscape constantly evolves, with cyberattacks becoming more sophisticated and data breaches rising. As a result, many have turned to traditional backup and recovery technologies that have been used for disaster recovery and business compliance for decades.  

Unfortunately, cybercriminals are hip to the backup game and routinely target backups. In fact, according to Rubrik Zero Labs, State of Data Security: Measuring Your Data's Risk, attackers tried to affect the backups in 96% of attacks, and because most backup solutions are simply not up to the task, attackers were at least partially successful in 74% of those attempts. 

Virtualized environments are especially vulnerable, with the report finding that ransomware encryption happens 83% of the time within virtualized architecture.

These alarming statistics highlight the need for robust and comprehensive security measures to safeguard critical data and maintain business resilience.
