"Ransomware Is A Business Continuity Issue.” -Forrester, May 22, 2018

Ransomware is one of the greatest enterprise threats right now and as it becomes more targeted and sophisticated, organizations have realized that a reactive approach is insufficient. Instead, they need a mitigation strategy that focuses on holistic prevention with rapid detection and response. Cohesity is not just the only solution that provides the necessary tools for this, they also provide mass restoration from immutable backups that gives me confidence that if/when we face a ransomware attack, we will be able to avoid any downtime or disruption to our business.

Ransomware remains one of the most insidious threats to business information today, and the results can be devastating” said Steven Hill, Senior Analyst of Applied Infrastructure and Storage Technologies at 451 Research. “Even if the financial demands are met, there’s no reason to trust that the criminals behind a ransomware attack will actually restore your data. The best approach to managing ransomware protection lies in a strategy that combines early detection with rapid response capabilities, backups that occur often enough to minimize impact, and the ability to insure that malicious payloads aren’t restored along with good data.
