Session: Stopping Ransomware with Cyberstorage
Ransomware has become the top concern among security and IT professionals, however solving for that challenge remains elusive as ever. With over $40B in damage caused in the last two years alone, legacy approaches are falling short of mitigating the risk. Edge and endpoint solutions have limited visibility into enterprise data operations, and data protection and backup providers promoting recovery mechanisms like immutable backups typically fall short of complete and timely service restoration. And with new, more destructive strains on the rise, what little impact observer and recovery-based solutions have will quickly soon be neutralized.
Cyberstorage is a new approach to solving data centric security problems through active security mechanisms embedded in the Enterprise data plane. This talk introduces the concept of an active security Enterprise file storage system, and how this type of solution can be a simple and effective answer to the Ransomware problem, both today and for the future.
