Defending Against the Siege of Ransomware
The threat of ransomware is only just beginning. In fact, nearly 50% of organizations have suffered at least one ransomware attack in the past 12 months and estimates predict this will continue to increase at an exponential rate. While healthcare and financial services are the most targeted industries, no organization is immune. And the cost? Nothing short of exorbitant.

Mind The Gap: Understanding the threats to your Office 365 data
Download this whitepaper to learn more about how you can prevent, or mitigate, these common Office 365 data threats: External threats like ransomware, Malicious insiders, User-errors and accidental keystrokes.
From corporate contacts to sensitive messages and attachments, email systems at all companies contain some of the most important data needed to keep business running and successful. At the same time, your office productivity suite of documents, notes and spreadsheets created by your employees is equally vital. Unfortunately, in both cases, protecting that data is increasingly challenging. Microsoft provides what some describe as marginal efforts to protect and backup data, however the majority of the burden is placed on the customer.

How iland supports Zero Trust security
This paper explains the background of Zero Trust security and how organizations can achieve this to protect themselves from outside threats.
Recent data from Accenture shows that, over the last five years, the number of security breaches has risen 67 percent, the cost of cybercrime has gone up 72 percent, and the complexity and sophistication of the threats has also increased.

As a result, it should come as no surprise that innovative IT organizations are working to adopt more comprehensive security strategies as the potential damage to business revenue and reputation increases. Zero Trust is one of those strategies that has gained significant traction in recent years.

In this paper we'll discuss:
  • What is Zero Trust?
  • The core tenants of iland’s security capabilities and contribution to supporting Zero Trust.
    • Physical - Still the first line of defense
    • Logical - Security through technology
    • People and process - The critical layer
    • Accreditation - Third-party validation
  • Security and compliance as a core iland value

Anyone who works in IT will tell you, losing data is no joke. Ransomware and malware attacks are on the rise, but that’s not the only risk. Far too often, a company thinks data is backed up – when it’s really not. The good news? There are simple ways to safeguard your organization. To help you protect your company (and get a good night’s sleep), our experts share seven common reasons companies lose data – often because it was never really protected in the first place – plus tips to help you avoid the same.

Greater Ransomware Protection Using Data Isolation and Air Gap Technologies
The prevalence of ransomware and the sharp increase in users working from home adds further complexity and broadens the attack surfaces available to bad actors. While preventing attacks is important, you also need to prepare for the inevitable fallout of a ransomware incident. To prepare, you must be recovery ready with a layered approach to securing data. This WhitePaper will address the approaches of data isolation and air gapping, and the protection provided by Hitachi and Commvault through H

Protecting your data and ensuring its’ availability is one of your top priorities. Like a castle in medieval times, you must always defend it and have built-in defense mechanisms. It is under attack from external and internal sources, and you do not know when or where it will come from. The prevalence of ransomware and the sharp increase in users working from home and on any device adds further complexity and broadens the attack surfaces available to bad actors. So much so, that your organization being hit with ransomware is almost unavoidable. While preventing attacks is important, you also need to prepare for the inevitable fallout of a ransomware incident.

Here are just a few datapoints from recent research around ransomware:
•    Global Ransomware Damage Costs Predicted To Reach $20 Billion (USD) By 2021
•    Ransomware is expected to attack a business every 11 seconds by the end of 2021
•    75% of the world’s population (6 Billion people) will be online by 2022.
•    Phishing scams account for 90% of attacks.
•    55% of small businesses pay hackers the ransom
•    Ransomware costs are predicted to be 57x more over a span of 6 years by 2021
•    New ransomware strains destroy backups, steal credentials, publicly expose victims, leak stolen data, and some even threaten the victim's customers

So how do you prepare? By making sure you’re recovery ready with a layered approach to securing your data. Two proven techniques for reducing the attack surface on your data are data isolation and air gapping. Hitachi Vantara and Commvault deliver this kind of protection with the combination of Hitachi Data Protection Suite (HDPS) and Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) which includes several layers and tools to protect and restore your data and applications from the edge of your business to the core data centers.

RANSOMWARE – How to Protect and Recover Your Data From this Growing Threat
Ransomware is a growing threat to every organization on the planet; it seems we cannot go a day without seeing another high-profile ransomware attack being detailed in mainstream media. Cyber-criminals are innovating at a phenomenal pace in this growing ‘industry’ because they have the funds to do so. In fact many cyber-criminal groups have more funds than most enterprises.

Ransomware is a growing threat to every organization on the planet; it seems we cannot go a day without seeing another high-profile ransomware attack being detailed in mainstream media.

Cyber-criminals are innovating at a phenomenal pace in this growing ‘industry’ because they have the funds to do so. In fact many cyber-criminal groups have more funds than most enterprises.

The disruption these attacks are causing to businesses is huge with billions of dollars’ worth of revenue being lost due to system outages caused via ransomware attacks.

Research has shown that a 41% increase in attacks has occurred since the beginning of 2021 with a staggering 93% increase year over year.

Companies are getting hit via ransomware every day, but how does it get in? Some of the most common ways ransomware is getting in is via the following methods:

1. Phishing emails that launch ransomware attacks via inline links, links in attachments, or fake attachments.
2. Browsing unknown links and websites.
3. Downloading and accidentally running infected software.
4. Inserting or connecting an infected disk, disc, or drive.
5. Operating system based vulnerabilities if the OS is not patched to the latest levels.
6. Plugin based vulnerabilities if plugins are not patched to the latest levels.
7. Infrastructure vulnerabilities (network, storage etc.) if not patched to the latest levels.

Ransomware-Mitigating the Threat of Cyber Security Attacks
Learn how to mitigate the risk of ransomware with Zerto Virtual Replication. Recover to seconds before and attack and never pay ransom for your data!

Recently, we have witnessed the increasing trend of hackers attempting to extort money from both private users, and more recently businesses, via the proliferation of various Ransomware Trojans such as CryptoLocker.

These malicious pieces of software are designed to gain access to and encrypt data and files by generating a private-public pair of keys. The data is impossible to decrypt without the private key which is usually stored on the attacker’s server until the ransom is paid.

Sometimes you just have to accept that prevention isn’t always possible, but mitigating the threat certainly is. With Zerto, systems are protected with Continuous Data Protection in the form of incremental block-level replication, which combined with the journal, Virtual Protection Groups give you the abilities to recover from ransomware attacks.

Download this data sheet for more details about how Zerto helps you remove the fear of ransomware.
