IBM’s AI assisted SSD gives the middle finger to ransomware attackers | #ransomware | #cybercrime

IBM has developed an AI assisted storage security technology that can intercept and disable ransomware. It’s been integrated into IBM’s enterprise tier FlashCore modules. The simple explanation is that it is able to scan all I/O data in real time, and halt unauthorized encryption operations before they have a chance to do damage.

IBM detailed the technology in a blog post (H/T Tom’s Hardware). The blog begins by talking about the concern companies have regarding ransomware, referencing a report that says 89% of organizations place ransomware in the top five threats to their viability. As in, not something for the IT department guys to fix over coffee and a chat.
