Steve Visconti, President and CEO, said, “Last week there was a global ransomware cyberattack as never been seen before. This single attack affected more than 200,000 computers and wreaked havoc on financial institutions, healthcare organizations and transportation to name just a few.  To put the problem in perspective in 2015 the industry saw nearly 3.8 million ransomware attacks while 2016 saw approximately 638 million attacks.  2017 is expected to see a triple digit rise over last year.  Additionally, ransomware continues to morph.  It is estimated there are over 32,000 variants currently.  This is costing businesses billions of dollars and will likely cost lives if the industry does not take active steps to minimize its impact.  This is a very serious problem which is why we developed a solution to protect your data in a way which is impervious to current iterations of ransomware.”

Federico Simonetti, Chief Technology Officer, said, “Ransomware is a type of malware that restricts access to the infected computer system, and demands that the user pay a ransom to the malware operators to remove the restriction. Probably the most famous ransomware, even though not the only one, is Cryptolocker, and it’s certainly something you don’t want to deal with. Regardless of the strenuous efforts put in place by Antivirus developers, the rate of infection is astonishing, and these days it’s becoming even worse with an unprecedented outbreak of infection. To make things even worse, ransomware can also access all the shared folders on your NAS/SAN, so if you backup to a network drive your backups will be compromised too. The ransomware goals include, in fact, preventing you from being able to restore your old (healthy) data from a backup. Ransomware, in general, takes advantage of humans’ natural behaviors, therefore there’s not much that can be done to prevent its action entirely; for this reason, making sure to have an always safe and totally healthy backup is absolutely essential.”

Extenua has just released a most timely white paper about Ransomware. 

This free white paper discusses the challenges of keeping ransomware (Cryptolocker, WannaCry, and the like) out of the corporate data storage, whether it is local, in the cloud or hybrid.

“Even in case your systems are infected by a ransomware,
you will simply be able to format your computer,
reinstall your operating system,
and restore all your data from an always-healthy backup.”
