There’s no time like the present to ensure your data security and protection infrastructure is as optimized and cyber resilient as possible. Just think about what’s happening on the worldwide stage. Very recently, a Mid-year Cyberthreat Report estimated global ransomware damages would exceed $30 billion by 2023. And beyond that, there are cost considerations, especially as global conflicts and energy prices continue to cause ripple effects in economies worldwide.

Leading indicators like these are why we’re excited to introduce Pure Storage® FlashRecover//S, Powered by Cohesity®. This joint offering is a modern data security and protection solution. It features multi-layered security to defend data against ransomware, offers comprehensive workload coverage, and supports near-instant data recovery at multi-petabyte scale. Validated by both Pure Storage and Cohesity, this all-flash solution is designed to provide secure, performant, and simple backup and recovery for your enterprise data.

Waiting to fortify and modernize data protection puts your business at risk

As our world becomes increasingly dependent on digital solutions, the volume of data your organization produces, consumes, and manages is exploding. Data security, management, efficiency, and cost challenges often quickly follow, especially if there is a strong reliance on legacy systems.

Yet organizational leaders still expect all business data to be stored securely and safely—and in a way that it can be restored quickly if a system is jeopardized due to a successful cyberattack, human error, or a natural disaster. Not being able to restore rapidly can have severe consequences and can prompt desperate actions that still may prove futile. For example, a 2022 ESG study showed that 56% of organizations surveyed admitted to paying a ransom—and only 14% of organizations were able to recover their data fully.

Behind these numbers are, most likely, legacy backup and recovery products architected years ago. In another recent study, 46% of respondents admitted to relying on backup and recovery infrastructure designed on or before 2010. These products simply weren’t designed to defend your organization’s data from the pervasive cyber threats that now target backup environments. Cybercriminals know this and do what they can to exploit it, often holding data, applications, and systems hostage and rendering them unusable until victims pay up—and even when you do pay, there’s no guarantee of getting all of your data back.

Joint solution boosts data security and cyber resilience

To help avoid paying cybercriminals, you can now fortify your environment with FlashRecover//S, Powered by Cohesity. It integrates Cohesity DataProtect software with Pure Storage’s new FlashBlade//STM all-flash storage to help safeguard your enterprise data from ransomware.

Our new joint solution features built-in, multi-layered security and is designed to offer:

  • Fast restoration of data, as well as the data protection cluster, to a known-good state, using Pure Storage SafeModeTM, an innovative feature that creates a locally-isolated and immutable copy of the entire Cohesity cluster, including the configuration, metadata, and backup data, on the FlashBlade//S. In the event of a disaster, recovery can be done directly in the production environment by rolling back to the latest SafeMode copy of the system locally, saving significant time, effort, and downtime.
  • Immutable backups that can be locked to prevent expiration or deletion using DataLock, Cohesity’s write once read many (WORM) time-bound feature. Data is also protected with comprehensive access controls (e.g., multifactor authentication (MFA), granular role-based access (RBAC), encryption, and quorum approval for critical actions) that protect against tampering.

The combined capabilities of Cohesity’s DataLock and Pure Storage SafeMode help ensure the non-expiration and non-deletion of the SafeMode copy of both the data and system, with checks and balances to ensure a clean restoration. Additionally, Cohesity’s RBAC and Quorum features provide an additional layer of protection for critical actions such as a rollback by requiring at least two approvers before the action can be completed.

Organizations investing in FlashRecover//S, Powered by Cohesity early are already experiencing benefits. “We sought a modern backup and recovery solution in the aftermath of a ransomware attack,” said Sean Halihan, vice president of IT Infrastructure and Operations, Afni. “Our leadership wanted a solution that shrunk our restore time from three weeks to three days. With Pure FlashRecover, Powered by Cohesity, we beat this SLA hands down and can now execute a complete restore of over 500 servers in just a few hours. It’s spectacular!”

Integrated solution boosts operational efficiency

As businesses like yours roll back to “do more with less” mindsets, you need to continue to move forward with data security and protection modernization that features automation and further reduces cyberattack surfaces. A modern platform allows IT specialists to broaden their contributions beyond managing complex, slow, rigid, and siloed piecemeal legacy backup and recovery solutions, making your whole environment more efficient. Moreover, your organization can stop outgrowing undersized solutions and being forced to migrate to another model or create another data silo.

The Pure Storage FlashRecover//S, Powered by Cohesity solution provides a true scale-out, disaggregated architecture, allowing independent optimization of compute and storage capacity for cost savings and flexibility. You can scale storage from 168TB to 2PB in a single FlashBlade//S chassis.

With an all-flash design, the joint solution is designed to provide high-performance backup and recovery and boasts:

  • Up to 3x faster backup and restore throughput than disk-based alternatives
  • Recovery of up to 1,000s of virtual machines (VMs) a day
  • Up to a petabyte (1 PB) or more of restore a day to meet large disaster recovery needs
