Ransomware attacks are only becoming more sophisticated, more common, and more costly. Insurance premiums for cyber coverage increased, too, with stand-alone cyber coverage increasing by 62% in 2022. Cybercriminals have become adept at stealing credentials and launching multistage attacks that cause widespread disruption. Even your data backups are no longer safe. Having said that, ransomware recovery is now at the forefront of the minds of business owners and IT departments alike.

Make no bones about it: Ransomware risk is one of the main reasons CIOs and CISOs are losing sleep.

So how can you be better prepared and safeguard your backups from a ransomware attack?

Ransomware recovery is split between two key factors. The first is to protect data in an immutable and indestructible sequence of snapshots. The second is to be able to recover data at a rate that is faster than what was previously thought to be possible. After an attack, you need your data back, and you need it back as soon as possible.

In addition to other resources such as an ebook, infographic, and a webinar, you’ll learn how Pure FlashBlade® with SafeMode™ snapshots can help protect your data in the event of an attack. SafeMode snapshots create read-only snapshots of backup data and associated metadata catalogs after you’ve performed a full backup. Because snapshots are read-only, you can use them to recover data, and no one, from ransomware attackers to rogue admins, can delete, modify, or encrypt them. In this era of pervasive and persistent ransomware attacks, make sure you can fight back and recover quickly with tools like Pure’s rapid recovery approach.

No organization is immune to ransomware risk. It can strike businesses of any size, at any moment. Having the ability to quickly recover from an attack can be crucial to the success of your enterprise.
