Druva launches improved ransomware protection for enterprises
Ransomware is a big problem for today's enterprises, the US Department of Justice reports an average of 4,000 ransomware attacks occur in the US every day.
This means detection and fast action is more important than ever. Cloud data protection company Druva is launching an enhanced version of its platform to manage the ransomware threat from detection right through to recovery.
It works by continually assessing the characteristics of file changes and their types. For example abnormal deletions, unusual file modifications and updates, and identifying an unusually large number of file creations, all of which could be a sign of a malicious event.
If it spots such an event, Druva will also pinpoint the last safest snapshot to recover from so that enterprises can recover their data with a high degree of confidence. This means businesses are better equipped to minimize the potential risk to the organization that can range from data loss to financial impact in fines, sanctions, or damaged reputation. Combined with a full suite of data protection capabilities, Druva enables customers to better detect, respond, and recover from events that could be potentially catastrophic.
"Druva has a unique spot in the enterprise information management space. We manage the lifecycle of the data, and we are well positioned to provide enterprises insights that nobody else can offer. From the prediction of a problem, to the detection of a specific issue, and then recovery of the complete set of data, Druva ensures complete protection," says Jaspreet Singh, CEO of Druva. "Customers can bank on Druva for data protection with unmatched anomaly detection and complete recovery capabilities."
Improved features include automated alerts and insights for IT administrators when unusual data activity occurs across desktops, laptops, mobile devices and cloud applications, giving them the ability to act quickly and stop potential security threats. A comprehensive set of trending charts and visualizations track data activity and quickly identify unusual behavior within data. Access to granular per-user details such as file name, path and type, helps identify what files are potentially at-risk.
The new features will be available to existing Druva users withing the next 60 days and you can find out more on the company's website.
