Tried & Partial Solutions

Typical prevention efforts – e.g., training employees to avoid being phishing victims, software to inspect emails for malware, encryption – don’t work/fall short/leave gaps. In fact, business email compromise (BEC) is emerging as a preferred attack, circumventing filters and firewalls.**

Lock Ransomware Out —
Keep Data Safe

WORM (Write Once Read Many) storage is the easiest and most effective strategy against ransomware – data is made immutable, preventing malware from encrypting data and locking the victim out.

Cloudian provides WORM at the storage system level through a feature called Object Lock. HyperStore is hardened by the use of HyperStore Shell (HSH) and RootDisable, securing the solution at the system level, even disabling root access to make the solution impregnable. Similar solutions typically have porous root access leaving system-level breaches possible. This is the only on-prem object storage solution in the market that is fully integrated with Object Lock.

Cloudian’s S3 Object Lock (WORM) is also fully integrated with Veeam and Commvault.

“Implementing an immutable file system with underlying WORM storage will make the system watertight from a ransomware protection perspective.”
