Webinar: Three Reasons Why Object Storage is the Best Defense against Ransomware Attacks

Watch On Demand

Backups, by themselves, are not an effective defense against a ransomware attack. The systems that store backup data also require protection, but backup storage is as vulnerable to a ransomware attack as production data, if not more so. If both your production data AND your backup data are compromised, then your only option is to pay the ransom.

Object Storage systems may be the ultimate data protection storage solution and are an ideal defense against ransomware attack.

In this on demand webinar, Storage Switzerland and Cloudian discuss the three key reasons why object storage is a perfect defense against ransomware:

  1. Immutability is built in – Data can’t be encrypted
  2. Replication is built in – Data can be automatically sent off-site
  3. Data Management is built in – Data can be archived from primary storage, limiting exposure

Listen as experts from Storage Switzerland and Cloudian discuss the ransomware problem and why object storage is an ideal platform for defending against its attacks.
