Protect your backup data and system

Ransomware Backup Data

Backup data is a primary target for threat actors. Cohesity offers a multilayered approach to defend your backup data.

Ransomware Backup Snapshots

Immutable backup snapshots and DataLock capability (WORM) help protect backup data from being modified or deleted.

Ransomware Zero Trust

Cohesity’s Zero Trust principles control access to platform and setting with MFA, RBAC, and quorum approval to prevent unilateral administrative changes.

AI/ML-based approach to cyber resiliency

Protect your data from ransomware, and use data anomaly detection and ML-based threat intelligence and scanning to detect risks, malware, and IOCs. Use automated SOC integrations to leverage existing security controls and processes for incident response and remediation. Determine whether attacks exposed sensitive data and help ensure your data is clean—then recover with confidence.

Commonly asked ransomware data recovery and protection questions

Ransomware is a malware attack launched by malicious actors that covertly encrypts an organization’s data, then demands payment for that data to be unencrypted.

Ransomware recovery provides the restoration of data after an attack. When an organization refuses to pay the ransom for decryption keys, organizations can restore data that it protected to help restart business processes and services.

Ransomware can not be 100% prevented. Threat actors have a wide variety of exploits that can overcome or simply bypass the best security controls. Ransomware gangs are continually morphing their attack techniques to bypass defensive measures.

Key to protecting against ransomware is the ability to both withstand and recover from attacks. Traditional cybersecurity solutions provide the capabilities to help withstand ransomware attacks. These include detecting unusual activity, locking down access to servers and endpoints, and having effective malware detection. Working hand in hand with cybersecurity, data security, and management professionals gives organizations cyber recovery capabilities as well. The recovery process allows organizations to refuse ransom payments and to recover affected data. Cyber recovery solutions also have a unique view of an organization’s critical data. They can therefore help thwart ransomware attacks by detecting anomalies and threats in protected data—and integrating with existing security operations and incident response.

To remove ransomware from systems and endpoints, organizations can surgically remove the malware and/or recover copies of data that are malware free.

When a ransomware attack happens, recovery must happen as rapidly and safely as possible. Organizations can’t withstand the outage of critical services for any duration without seriously impacting revenue and customer loyalty. Critical to rapid recovery is making sure trusted data is available—and able to be restored at scale. Recovery should include all critical data (structured and unstructured), as well as virtualized systems. Plus recovering thousands of virtual machines and enterprise data should be measured in hours, not days. Such comprehensive recovery is critical to business continuity and cyber resilience.

Backups must maintain their integrity so they’re reliable sources for cyber recovery. Several factors are key to their integrity: First, backup data must be immutable, so it can’t be modified or deleted. Second, the backup platform must be hardened so administrative settings, such as backup schedules, can’t be altered. Third, any changes to critical settings must require multi-person approval, or quorum, so no rogue insider can unilaterally change settings. Finally, the platform’s security posture should be continuously monitored to help ensure that security settings aren’t changed and don’t introduce risks. Here are some tips to protect your backups.

The challenge with ransomware is being prepared for an attack—not wondering if it will happen. (It’s a question of when, not if.) The best cybersecurity intentions can be undone via simple user error, such as clicking an attachment in an email. Given this reality, organizations must have reliable recovery capabilities if they want to avoid paying the ransom—and avoid a significant disruption of their business operations. Plus,many cyber insurance providers now require organizations to have robust recovery capabilities in place to qualify for coverage.
