In a recent survey by Sophos of ransomware-affected organizations, only 65% of their encrypted files were recovered by those who paid.
Press Release – Channel Partners Conference and Exhibition, Las Vegas, April 12 – Redstor (Booth 2039, Featured Sponsor of CP Expo and MSP Summit Viewer), the leading provider of data management and SaaS protection, today announced the latest development in technology that enables malware detection and removal from backups.
Most organizations have some form of antivirus protection on their on-premise infrastructure or in the cloud, but if that gets compromised, it leaves their backups vulnerable to attack as well.
As malware continues to grow in scope and sophistication, it often hides within business networks undetected for much longer than any retention policy as it scans for and infects backups.
This can be disastrous. In a recent survey by Sophos of ransomware-affected organizations, those who paid only got 65% of their encrypted files back — and a third of their data remained inaccessible.
If companies are asked to recover quickly, they need to know that their backups are safe. To enable this, Redstor has developed an advanced machine learning model to detect, isolate, and delete malware in backups, from servers, laptops, Microsoft 365, and Google Workspace.
While antivirus software is better at squashing more persistent cyber threats like trojans and worms from a USB or email attachment, anti-malware is usually quicker to update its bases, providing the best protection against new malware being introduced. encountered while browsing the net.
Redstor’s AI-infused platform takes this one step further, constantly evolving and learning, based on user behaviors, rather than requiring manual software upgrades to stay relevant.
This provides an additional powerful layer of protection that complements existing antivirus software.
Our machine learning model:
- Searches for key indicators shown by malware
- Maintains the integrity of important data, which is encrypted at the source, during transmission and at rest
- Checks for malware outside the enterprise environment, so there is no impact on resources
- The user avoids the need to configure or install anything or make upgrades
- It continues to train itself, based on results and the latest real-world threats, as it improves and improves its accuracy
Paul Evans, CEO of Redstor, said: “It is a best practice to use different products to increase overall detection capability — and Redstor helps provide assurance that if malware, including ransomware, is found in a backup, a secure copy can be released quickly and easily. restored.
“Every time a file is flagged as safe or otherwise, our machine learning model trains itself to become more accurate in detecting malicious files. We continue to improve artificial intelligence, based on real-world events and the emergence of new forms of malware.”
