Cloudian Ransomware Protection Named Data Security Solution
SAN MATEO, Calif., September 30, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Cloudian® today announced that its S3 Object Lock ransomware protection solution has won the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award for Data Security Solution of the Year . The awards recognize information security technologies and companies that push ingenuity and exemplify the best cybersecurity technology solutions across the world, with winners chosen by an independent panel of industry experts.
Cloudian’s object storage-based Object Lock solution protects against ransomware by allowing organizations to create immutable (unmodifiable) data backups that are then invulnerable to encryption or deletion by cybercriminals. This immutability ensures that an uninfected copy is available for quick and easy recovery in the event of a ransomware attack, eliminating the need to pay a ransom. Even an IT administrator with management access privileges cannot delete or modify protected data, whether by accident or on purpose.
Object Lock operates as part of a standard backup workflow, integrating seamlessly with backup software from major data protection vendors such as Veeam and Commvault. As a result, it does not require any manual intervention or ongoing management.
“Ransomware is the biggest cybersecurity threat today and, unfortunately, perimeter security solutions and other traditional defenses have proven ineffective in keeping ransomware out,” said Jon Toor, director of marketing at Cloudian. “It is therefore essential that organizations pay more attention to the ability to recover quickly from an attack without having to pay a ransom, and the best way to ensure such recovery is to have an immutable backup copy activated by Object Lock. “
The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award is the fourth industry award for Cloudian’s Object Lock solution, following its most recent victory for Best Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery Solution at the 2021 SC Awards earlier this year.
