Cyber Recovery offers peace of mind for enterprises against ransomware
The threat of cyberattacks and ransomware is keeping IT and business leaders up at night, and with good reason. The costs of ransomware payouts can be in the millions, with the most recent example being Colonial Pipeline’s $5 million payout to hackers in May 2021. But paying the ransom has no guarantee that your organization will recover its data in a timely manner – or ever.
Traditional DR plans may not be enough to handle ransomware events such as the one Colonial Pipeline experienced. And with many enterprises now using two or more public clouds, a data protection plan for both on-premises and data stored in the cloud is imperative.
Cyber recovery fills the gap in disaster recovery, providing a clean, immutable copy of data and workloads. CR protects a selected set of mission-critical data in a physically and logically isolated data vault that provides air-gap protection mechanisms.
