Cloudian’s S3 Object Lock Solution Wins 2020 NAB Show Product of the Year Award

Cloudian’s object storage-based Object Lock solution protects against the rapidly growing ransomware threat by enabling media and entertainment organizations to create immutable backups of content that are then invulnerable to hacker encryption or deletion. This immutability ensures availability of an uninfected copy of the content for reliable recovery in the event of a ransomware attack, eliminating the need to pay ransom.

Unlike offline tape storage which requires manual management and can entail significant recovery time, Object Lock can be fully automated using on-premises disk-based storage for trouble-free, lights-out operation.
