Let's face it — enterprise data protection is more critical than ever. Here at Panzura, we believe in making attacks powerless using a data-resilient approach.
No matter what preventative measures you take, if you’re enterprise size, you're bound to experience a ransomware attack at some point. In fact, Cybersecurity Ventures reported that ransomware attacks occurred every 11 seconds in 2021 — a staggering rate that is expected to increase to approximately one ransomware attack every two seconds by 2031.
Beyond the ransom, frequent ransomware attacks are costly and include downtime, productivity loss, legal fines due to information breaches, and recovery expenses. And beyond the immediate financial impact, the reputation of your enterprise could be at stake.
Detecting Ransomware Attacks
As logical as preventative measures may sound, sometimes ransomware attacks occur and cause mass amounts of damage before you even notice them. Panzura takes a proactive approach. With CloudFS, our revolutionary (no brag, it's truly revolutionary) global file system, you can protect your precious data by making it resilient to ransomware. CloudFS makes cloud object storage immutable and impervious to ransomware. Any edits made by attackers don't permanently damage or replace file content, but rather, create new data blocks that can easily be made irrelevant simply by editing a metadata table. Files can never be irreversibly encrypted. Your files are resilient, immutable, and always available.
Restoration After a Ransomware Attack
If you experience a ransomware attack, with CloudFS, you can simply restore your files to the previous, unaffected version. Once the attack is discovered, it's only a matter of pressing a few buttons before data is completely restored and company operations resume as usual.
A Proactive Ransomware Approach
Taking the time to understand ransomware attacks and how they work is an essential step in combating them. Stay up-to-date on how ransomware works and actively educate and prepare your teams so you'll have less downtime and data loss. With a solid understanding and a proactive Panzura ransomware approach, you can stay a step ahead of cybercriminals — and focus on staying ahead of your competition as well.
