Ransomware Protection for Your Data

Posted by Eric Jansta on May 20, 2021 10:00:00 AM

The continuing evolution of ransomware attacks requires innovative, protective solutions. Dell has led the protection of the data center with the Cyber Recovery solution, which is the only solution certified by Sheltered Harbor. It implements a digital air-gap solution that provides a dedicated replica isolated from the production environment. The isolation limits risks associated with remote threats identifying, accessing, and corrupting the backup data. In order to identify when a ransomware attack has occurred, Dell has partnered with Index Engines to monitor the backup data stream. CyberSense from Index Engines uses machine learning to identify changes in the backup data and alert when the appearance of an attack occurs.

Extending the air-gap protections to support unstructured data, Dell has partnered with Superna Eyeglass to provide ransomware protection on the Isilon system. Superna Eyeglass software manages air-gap replication to an isolated Isilon system. The isolated Isilon system provides similar protection from bad actors that the Dell Cyber Recovery solution provides. The Isilon data is kept in its native state without having to be reconstructed via an NDMP backup and recovery process. It is optimized to support the unstructured data while keeping it separate from the backup environment and natively stored on the Isilon. This provide quicker restore of the Isilon data in the event of an attack and the proceeding recovery effort.

ConvergeOne has worked closely with Dell, and developed its own engagement model, to provide a fully integrated backup, Disaster Recovery, and Cyber Recovery environment to cover the critical applications and data in your environment. Please contact ConvergeOne to schedule a complimentary workshop to identify gaps in the policies, procedures, and solutions you have in place as they relate to ransomware protection.

The ConvergeOne Ransomware Readiness Workshop focuses on your organization’s readiness for a ransomware attack. During this workshop, ConvergeOne experts will analyze your environment for the following:

  • User Awareness Training
  • Patching and Asset Management
  • End Point Security
  • Network Security and Segmentation
  • Email + Web Security
  • Role-Based Access Controls
  • Testing + Monitoring
  • Incident Response Plans
  • Backup + Restore
  • Disaster Recovery
