Cyberstorage mentioned in new Gartner report

Active cybersecurity defense is one of the recommendations as stated, “mitigate costly and highly disruptive data extortion events by implementing active cybersecurity defense capabilities that can detect and ensure against egregious ransomware attacks.”

As Gartner explains in the report, “unstructured data platforms such as network-attached storage, scale-out file systems and object storage provide inadequate protection from malicious deletion, encryption and data exfiltration, making them attractive targets.”

Minimize the effects of ransomware

Gartner reports that “unstructured data platforms such as network-attached storage, scale-out file systems and object storage provide inadequate protection from malicious deletion, encryption and data exfiltration, making them attractive targets. Some vendors position traditional storage technologies like snapshots, as a single answer for ransomware protection, which is inadequate to meet the new challenges ransomware brings. Cyberstorage products differentiate their advanced cyberstorage features by offering one or more of the capabilities that align with the NIST framework.”

Cyberstorage products are aligned with the NIST Cybersecurity Risk Management Framework (CSF) to help organizations prevent, detect, and respond to cyber threats.
