Backups are one of the most, if not the most, important defenses against ransomware. Rubrik’s file system was built to be immutable, meaning backups cannot be encrypted or deleted by ransomware. I am very fortunate to say that 100% of what we had on Rubrik we were able to recover. Paul LaValley, Former CIO of Yuba County
Rubrik is not about recovering from ransomware. Rubrik is the difference between survival and non-survival in this new digital age. Matthew Day, CIO of Langs Building Supplies
Rubrik safeguarded our backups. Due to its native immutability, 100% of our backups were protected against corruption and deletion. Ben Williams, IT Services Manager of Colchester Institute
This is the potential cost of a data breach for a company in your industry with similar headcount1
The ability to recover depends on having backups that can never be encrypted.
Attackers are targeting backups so ensuring they are not discoverable or accessible over the network is a must.
Without multi-factor authentication, an attacker only needs compromised user credentials to gain system access.
Knowing what data to recover is just as important as having backups to recover from when attacked.
Knowing what sensitive data you have and where it resides helps you better understand what has been exposed.
When it is time to recover, you need to know what your last clean snapshot is to avoid malware reinfection.
Rapid recovery is crucial to minimizing data loss and the cost of downtime.
1 - The range of potential costs are based on the report conducted by IBM Security - Cost of a Data Breach Report 2021. The average total cost of a ransomware breach was $4.62M, more expensive than the average data breach of $4.24M. These costs included escalation, notification, lost business and response costs, but did not include the cost of the ransom. The percentage of companies where ransomware was a factor in the breach was 7.8%.
