Industry experts estimate that during 2021 there were more than 700 million ransomware attacks worldwide, yet nearly half of business professionals say they are not prepared to combat this type of attack. Ransomware vulnerabilities can stress even the most cutting-edge IT infrastructures. Organizations and individuals can take steps to mitigate ransomware, but there is no silver bullet that will solve or defend against all attacks. Securing and stabilizing the infrastructure against ransomware demands expertise, tactics, and professionally managed services.

Verinext and Metallic, a Commvault venture, recently hosted a webinar focusing on how to develop and operationalize optimal strategies and best practices to holistically safeguard an entire IT ecosystem against threats like ransomware. Verinext’s Senior VP of Architecture and Strategy, Ferrol Macon, Verinext’s Principal Security Consultant/vCISO, Daniel Martin, and Metallic’s CISO, Said Syed, participated in this discussion on how organizations can discover the principles behind interconnecting multi-layered defensive data management services and solutions that will enable the organizations to persevere against ransomware attacks.

Protection with a Cloud-First Approach

In today’s world, success of any organization against ransomware attacks requires multiple strategies. One strong option for organizations is to protect critical workloads with a data management-as-a-service solution. By so doing, organizations can mitigate the spread ransomware and other cyberthreats while comfortably meeting SLA, retention and recovery requirements. Organizations can deploy these types of solutions in minutes and manage them remotely. This approach also allows organizations to reduce or remove capital, hardware and infrastructure expenditures while keeping compliant with regulatory and eDiscovery controls.
