Ransomware attacks continue to rise, primarily targeting data protection infrastructures, which forces many businesses to seek better ways to solve their backup safety-related concerns.
As a result, a rapidly growing market for information security systems has emerged. However, solutions that serve all needs often fail, becoming too costly or difficult to deploy and scale.
In the cybersecurity ecosystem, some threats emerge in the limelight while others lurk in the shadows. Acoustic side-channel attacks, fueled by deep learning and ever-present microphones in almost everything we own, have recently emerged from obscurity. Parallelly, the persistent onslaught of ransomware attacks serves as a reminder that both the overt and covert cyber threats demand equal attention. Both underline a singular message: our data, more than ever, is in the crosshairs.
We are thrilled to be participating in the VeeamON again this year. This engaging community event, renowned for bringing together the best minds in data protection, presents an exciting opportunity for you to connect with us and experience Ootbi, so visit us at booth #G9 and let’s explore how Ootbi can ransomware-proof your backups.
The recent release of the National Cyber Strategy by the Biden administration marks a significant shift new chapter in how cybersecurity is approached in the United States. The strategy highlights the need to shift the burden of cybersecurity from individuals, small businesses, and local governments, and instead, it puts the responsibility in the hands of software developers and other tech companies
We celebrate backup because it’s the last bastion of defense against ransomware. Once the firewall fails, then the antivirus software, then the replication, what’s left? Only the backup can save us…
In the first installment, we learned about the 3-2-1 strategy, with an extra 1 — signifying the importance of having an air-gapped copy of your backup data. With a comprehensive roadmap of where and how to store your critical backup data, let’s not forget where we left off with the all important 0. What about the zero?
Everyone knows someone who has been affected by ransomware, and if you are reading this blog, you now know another. My experience with ransomware attacks is not because I downloaded some wacky .exe or failed a funny phishing test. My data was exposed alongside many others in a massive breach over five years ago.
Ransomware attacks are increasing at staggering rates. Ransomware impacted over 90% of organizations in the past 12 months, up from 72.5% last year. Despite continuous investments in cybersecurity and data protection, ransomware continues to put your data at risk. You can read more about these shocking statistics at VentureBeat.
Firstly, if you read our most recent blog series about various storage platforms, thank you. If you haven’t, I recommend checking out the third and final piece covering object storage and how it mainly benefits cloud users today (and very soon Object First’s on-premises customers as well!).
