According to a report from SonicWall, more than 500 million ransomware attacks hit in 2021—up by more than 134% from 2020. These threats aren’t just constant; they’re quick. Hackers steal encrypted valuable files before many organizations even realize a ransomware attack is happening. So, how can you protect your data?
Preventing a ransomware attack requires careful attention—a multilayered solution to a multilayered problem.
Because criminals are targeting your data, it makes sense to start your data protection strategy at the storage layer. Our data-centric approach to protect against ransomware offers industry-leading enterprise hybrid cloud infrastructure management software: NetApp® ONTAP®. With ONTAP, you can:
If you know what's going on with your data, you’ll know when something doesn’t look right. Understanding what kind of data you have, where it’s stored, and who has access is an important step for any cyberresilience plan.
You don’t have to face the threat of ransomware alone. We offer a data protection and security assessment service to identify security gaps and vulnerabilities in your current environment—on premises and in the cloud. After assessing your environment, we’ll provide actionable recommendations for closing those gaps to increase data resilience. And for further peace of mind, our ransomware monitoring and reporting service provides another layer of protection for your environment by helping you respond and recover quickly if an attack gets through your defenses.
With our integrated solutions, data protection is baked into your infrastructure. That means you choose where and how you want to protect your workloads across your hybrid cloud—without disrupting performance or sapping resources.
