CTERA Ransom Protect provides AI-Powered early detection and instant recovery
New York, NY, June 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CTERA, the leader in edge-to-cloud file services today unveiled CTERA Ransom Protect, a new homegrown AI-power cyber protection engine natively integrated into the CTERA global file system. Using activity sensors built into the file system that are feeding an advanced machine learning algorithm trained on an extensive dataset of attack flows, CTERA Ransom Protect is able to detect and block attacks within seconds and provides tools for immediate mitigation and instant recovery.
Ransomware attacks are an escalating security concern for organizations worldwide, causing billions of dollars in financial and reputational damages annually. Recent market studies indicate that a staggering 85% of organizations have experienced a ransomware attack in the past year alone, underlining the critical need for a robust, proactive defense mechanism.
“Counting on endpoint protection to prevent ransomware is a futile hope, as it takes a single compromised device to bring down an entire datacenter,” said Oded Nagel, CEO of CTERA. “To provide real protection, organizations need to concentrate their defense around their file storage and backup systems, which are the primary target of any attacker. By integrating this capability into our file system, we are providing integrated cyber resilient storage without relying on any third-party products and without impacting performance.”
Key Features of CTERA Ransom Protect include:
Instant Recovery: near-instant recovery of any affected files from snapshots are securely stored in an air-gapped, immutable cloud object storage effectively thwarting any manipulation attempts by malicious actors.
“We notice that CTERA has gradually implemented a comprehensive range of ransomware protection mechanisms that prevent operational disruptions, downtime, and data loss,” said Arjan Timmerman, analyst at GigaOm and Max Mortillaro analyst at GigaOm. “CTERA also continues to fortify its position in cybersecurity, equipping organizations with sophisticated tools to protect their valuable assets in an increasingly complex threat landscape.”
CTERA Ransom Protect will be available for all CTERA Edge Filer customers in July.
