Ransomware attacks are only becoming more sophisticated, more common, and more costly. In 2021, the average ransomware payment was $541,010, up from 2020’s $312,493 average. Insurance premiums for cyber coverage increased, too, up 92% in 2021 compared to 2020. Cybercriminals have become adept at stealing credentials and launching multistage attacks that cause widespread disruption. Even your data backups are no longer safe.
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? Get the Pure Storage® Ransomware Survival Kit.
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.
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.
