Ransomware is becoming highly sophisticated, which a new model has taken shape merely to attack enterprises. Global enterprises will be at stake once ransomware loses its control as if a pandemic. Conservative protection might come in handy, yet evolved cyberattacks can be very fierce. Whatever happens, enterprises should implement holistic cybersecurity strategies to ensure business continuity.
To avoid immense financial loss, enterprises need to deploy an all-round and effective cybersecurity strategy, which may include firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) to strengthen network security and defend against cyberattacks. It prevents data breach even when employees access internal network remotely. Moreover, real-time monitoring and early alerts are considerably useful for identifying and correcting vulnerabilities promptly, so as to maintain optimal operating conditions.
Aside from overall security, business data is always a prime target for hackers. With a sea of unstructured data and without proper security measures, hackers can steal or encrypt those vulnerable data almost effortlessly. Managing the data securely and efficiently can be the challenging task for enterprises, which may enlarge the burden of their limited internal IT resources. Hence, a professional object storage solution equipped with a data protection function is what they seek. In addition to a high data storage scalability that allows enterprises to deposit a massive amount of critical data, it enables an object lock feature to ensure no accidental erasure or modifications, so that their operations will not be interrupted.
Cybersecurity experts revealed in the latest whitepaper about ransomware that regular backups act as the first line of defense against ransomware. That is, if enterprises are threatened by ransomware, having regular data backups helps to recover their original data quickly and secures operational continuity. Hence, a comprehensive disaster recovery management not only provide back up, replicate and recovery of data, but also regularly review the effectiveness of disaster recovery plan to ensure uninterrupted business.
Hardly can enterprises exploit their internal IT resources to combat ransomware, and most likely it will place management and technical burden on them.
