Attacks on Ransomware seem interminable and persistent. Daily headlines scream about the severity and frequency of attacks on organizations of all kinds – no industry is immune, and some including healthcare and government face more scrutiny when cyber attacks affect patient or constituent data or cause downtime for critical services.
With so much emphasis placed on the data, it is now more important than ever to protect it.
The impacts of Ransomware extend far beyond initial attack
While the immediate impacts of ransomware attacks such as disruption, data loss, or ransom payments appear to be devastating, the long-term consequences must also be taken into account as customers pay more attention to ransomware attacks.
A recent consumer survey shows that 70 per cent believe businesses are not doing enough to secure their personal information adequately and assume that it has been compromised without them knowing it. Fifty-nine percent of consumers would probably avoid doing business with an organization that experienced a cyber-attack last year.
If you don't focus on cyber security and data security, your customers will get notice. The study found that after a single ransomware-related disruption of service, failed transaction, or instance of inaccessible information, one in four consumers will abandon a product or service in favor of a competitor. Simply put, your ransomware recovery won't wait for the consumers.
How to protect your hyperconverged infrastructure
Nutanix provides solutions that integrate computing, virtualization, storage , networking, and security with multi-cloud architectures, based on powerful HCI technology. Protecting Nutanix environments is more important than ever with malware affecting organisations from all directions.
Combining comprehensive security testing, data analysis and visibility, ransomware detection and data safety would ensure Nutanix workloads are fully secured. Consider these considerations when considering the best suited strategy for data security and cyber security:
- Protect workloads running on Nutanix with integrated data and cyber security – ensuring that your IT infrastructure is properly secured against ransomware attacks with data being a highly sought-after commodity and that your backups are safe.
- Safe and secure on-site, cloud, and SaaS-based workloads – Complex IT infrastructures that are designed over time usually include siloed cyber security and strategies for data protection. By preserving all data across all channels, choose a solution that reduces complexity.
- Eliminate the risks of downtime with disaster recovery capabilities – Rest assured with a solution that meets business continuity criteria by reducing recovery times and points (RTOs / RPOs) to minutes and restoring image backups.
