Releasing the RSTOR Immutability White Paper “Peace of Mind in an Uncertain World”

Written by Paul Buttle

2020 was a disturbing year for people everywhere, but it was also pretty scary for your data. While humans wrestled with a virus which killed millions, shut down our institutions and crippled societies, the data world was dealing with a similar scourge but one that was less talked about – Ransomware. The invisible bot within the firewall was busy encrypting, but not deleting, the data of thousands of organizations and the average payout to unlock that data was $1.1m. And that was just the average. Who wants responsibility for that payout on their resume?

By some estimates (*) 56% of organizations were a target of a ransomware attack in 2020 and it accounts for over 80% of all financially motivated cyber crime. With statistics like that no organization (large or small) or CIO can afford to take the ‘hope it doesn’t happen to us” strategy – because eventually it will and your best defense is to be prepared.

Fortunately at RSTOR we have a mission to help customers take control of their data and we want to help organizations everywhere be well prepared to repel the ransomware attacks when they come. Today we’re releasing a new whitepaper which is packed with practical hints on how to protect your data with the latest in cloud object technologies and even some common sense ideas. One among them is to ensure that all of your vital data is backed up in at least one remote location and that copy be totally immutable.

Immutability is your best defense against ransomware attack because no application or user (whether rogue or accidental) can erase or corrupt your data. Your data simply cannot be encrypted by a ransomware bot and if they attack the rest of your systems you can restore from the backup.
