60 percent

Costs are rising: The average ransomware payment jumped by 60% to $178,254 between Q1 and Q2 last year according to Coveware, a firm that helps negotiate cyber ransom payments.

20 billion dollars

Ransomware risks are also rising: an acceleration of ransomware attacks is now forecasted to occur every 11 seconds and ransomware payments to reach $20 billion in 2021.

What could put an end to digital kidnapping? Widespread use of immutable data backups.

Van Flowers joins Jeff Lanza, a 20 year FBI veteran, to discuss REAL ransomware situations, cybercrime impact on companies, and what you should be looking out for to keep your company safe. The best defense is always being proactively prepared, and they’ll show you how protecting your data with object lock / immutability can prevent you from being yet another “it happened to me” on the FBI’s list of victims.

Ransomware Victims Report

Ransomware is one of the most widely discussed threats in cyber security. However, not enough research exists about the experiences of organizations that have actually suffered from ransomware attacks.

For this report, an independent research firm surveyed 200 IT decision makers whose organizations experienced a ransomware attack.

The findings reveal the cold, hard truth about such attacks:

  1. They are hard to prevent even when you’re prepared.
  2. Ransomware can penetrate quickly, significantly impacting an organization’s financials, operations, customers, employees and reputation.
  3. Even if you pay the ransom, there are other related costs that can be significant

Read this report to learn about:

  • The experiences of ransomware victim organizations
  • The importance of focusing greater attention on recovering from an attack
  • How you can quickly and easily recover without having to pay ransom

Object Lock Protects Your Data 

Cloudian HyperStore protects your data with Object Lock, so it cannot be encrypted by ransomware. 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.

Integrated with Veeam Availability Suite V10, the combination gives you the only on-prem ransomware solution that is tamperproof down to the system level, to offer data immutability that’s SEC17a-4 and Common Criteria certified.

Hear from Veeam’s VP of Enterprise Strategy, Dave Russell, and Cloudian’s CMO, Jon Toor, about why this Object Lock integration is such a game-changer for ransomware protection.

Ransomware Protection with Immutability for Container Backups
Kasten by Veeam + Cloudian HyperStore

Enterprises are increasingly deploying Kubernetes-managed, containerized applications in full production, making it essential to protect these applications and their data. Through the new integration of Cloudian HyperStore with Kasten by Veeam, organizations can now have the same secure, scalable, enterprise-grade backup for their containerized apps as they already rely on for their traditional workloads.

As a Kasten backup target, HyperStore provides modern, cloud-native storage with complete S3 compatibility, limitless scalability, and ransomware protection—on-premises for superior RPO/RTO or in a hybrid cloud—all at up to 70% less cost than traditional or public cloud storage.

Ransomware Protection Solution Brief

To protect data from ransomware attacks, Cloudian HyperStore and Veeam Availability Suite V10+ support Object Lock. This permits backup data copies to be made unchangeable for a set period of time, which prevents hacker encryption or deletion and ensures a clean data copy for reliable recovery.

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. The resulting security is comparable to offline storage at 70% less cost than public cloud storage.

Solution benefits include:

  • Veeam Object Lock protects data from encryption by ransomware
  • On-prem, disk-based storage for rapid data restore
  • Veeam-qualified for trouble-free deployment
  • Industry’s lowest total cost of ownership of any backup target
  • Some customers have received up to a 15% discount on cyber insurance premiums

Forrester analysts write:

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

US Regulatory Compliance

Cloudian HyperStore Object Lock Compliance Mode protects your organization’s data from ransomware attacks. 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.

HyperStore 7.2 also meets securities industry requirements for preserving record objects in a non-rewriteable, non-erasable format until the specified retention period has expired and any associated legal holds have been released.

According to the Cohasset Associates report, Cloudian HyperStore meets the requirements of:

  • Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 17 CFR § 240.17a-4(f), which regulates exchange members, brokers or dealers
  • Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Rule 4511(c), which defers to the format and media requirements of SEC Rule 17a-4(f)
  • Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in 17 CFR § 1.31(c)- (d), which regulates commodity futures trading
