Fighting Ransomware with Nasuni

The Evolution of Ransomware

Ransomware is evolving. The hackers behind the original Cryptolocker trojan were stopped in 2014, but the imitators are growing in numbers and sophistication. Today, Ransomware targets a much wider range of file types, and hackers have specifically aimed their attacks at the enterprise. In May of 2017 the Ransomware attack commonly known as “WannaCry” quickly spread across the globe, infecting countless organizations.

The unsettling truth is that almost any business can fall victim to ransomware. Traditional backup and Disaster Recovery solutions offer little help, so companies either pay ransoms or say goodbye to critical files. The situation is so dire that the FBI has even suggested companies give in to ransom demands. But this is not necessary. With the right data protection solution in place, fighting ransomware is simple, and your business can overcome these attacks.

We know because our clients have been telling us how Nasuni has helped them dismiss ransom demands and restore access to their files with minimal disruption to business. Thanks to Nasuni’s frequent, unlimited snapshots and 15-minute DR, one customer avoided ransoms totaling $2M.

As these attacks increase in their sophistication, they target specific corporate servers. Download this solution brief to learn more about how to leverage the cloud to fight back against ransomware.
