How vulnerable is your organization?

Question 1 of 8


Defense against ransomware attacks

Backup is your last line of defense against sophisticated ransomware attacks. How robust is your backup product?

My backup snapshots are immutable. Ransomware cannot modify or delete my backup data.

My backup system supports at-rest and in-flight data encryption.


I can enable WORM (write once, read many) for my backup repository.

My backup system offers granular RBAC for stopping unauthorized access.

My backup can detect anomalous behaviors — including potential ransomware attacks — and alert authorized users to investigate.

With a single search, I can locate malicious files across my global data footprint.

To ensure a clean restore, my backup system gives me deep visibility into security vulnerabilities and cyber exposures in backup snapshots.

To reduce downtime, my backup system allows me to restore hundreds of virtual machines and large databases instantly, without relying on custom scripts.

Protection Risk

Sophisticated malware targets backup data. A lack of key capabilities in your backup solution — immutable snapshots, WORM, multifactor authentication, RBAC, and data isolation — are putting your organization at risk.

Your Results

Detection Risk

In the current climate, it’s not a question of if, but when a ransomware attack will happen. Your inability to quickly detect an intrusion allows cybercriminals to further proliferate in your IT production environment, making it harder to recover.

Your Results

Recovery Risk

Downtime from a ransomware attack is costly. The lack of clean data and fast recovery options from ransomware impacts your business operations, revenue, customer experience, partner engagement, and more. You can reduce your risk.
