Ransomware is top of mind for many organizations’ leaders as their organizations face the potentially disastrous aftermath of successful attacks.

ESG has surveyed IT leaders and organizations to find out how big of a problem ransomware is, what are the business consequences of downtime caused by these attacks, and which are some of the best practices and capabilities organizations need to apply to be protected.

According to the ESG research, nearly two-thirds of surveyed organizations across North America and Western Europe experienced a ransomware attack at some point last year, with 22% reporting weekly attacks. The attacks have helped make cybersecurity a target of IT investment, and spending is accelerating.

What’s needed to fend off this epidemic are best practices and tools to:

  • Prevent or at least mitigate attacks
  • Protect data and backup data
  • Recover reliably

15% of total global ransomware attacks in 2016 targeted health care institutions. The question is no longer an “if”, but when. Ransomware can shut down entire hospitals, severely damage the brand and result in steep regulatory penalties, or dramatically impact patient lives.

This white paper discusses the impact of ransomware on the medical sector, but most important, it provides clear guidelines on how to prepare for and recover from these attacks without compromising patient trust and aligning with the industry’s regulations around data protection and Availability.

Ransomware has evolved into a powerful cyber threat, able to take down solid security solutions. Ransomware attacks are spreading and becoming more sophisticated, which causes significant financial losses, brand identity damage or data loss for businesses around the world.

Solid data protection against ransomware threats requires a proactive approach, careful planning and industry best practices implementation, such as the 3-2-1 backup rule. Leveraging this rule, IT admins can ensure a high level of redundancy, as well as maximize application uptime and data protection. By doing so, organizations can avoid paying the ransom in case of a cyber-attack and benefit from a strong data availability solution.

Veeam and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) solution is easy to deploy and use and packed with very useful capabilities that make it an enterprise-class data availability solution: testing environment, rapid data restores and recovery or infrastructure lock down.

Read this joint Veeam and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) ransomware solution brief that details the rise in ransomware attacks, the business and IT risks of ransomware and explains how the integration of HPE storage platforms and Veeam software can be deployed to combat any ransomware threats by hackers.

Ransomware attacks are a serious threat to industries worldwide. According to the FBI, ransomware collected $209 million in the first three months of 2016 and is on pace to reach $1 billion in 2016. While healthcare organizations are the most publicized victims, this is a growing threat across all industries.

There are two common types of ransomware; lock screen, such as FakeBsod & Brolo, which lock screens and ask for payment to unlock them and encryption, such as CryptyWall, Lock and TorrentLocker, which encrypt data on a drive and demand payment to unlock it.

With ransomware evolving into a more complex and frequent phenomenon, organizations should follow common best practices for data protection, including the 3-2-1 principle: THREE copies of data on TWO different types of media and ONE copy stored offsite. The 3-2-1 Rule of data protection along with Veeam® Availability Suite™ enables companies to prevent data loss due to ransomware, by quickly and effectively restoring it in case of an attack.

Learn how by following the best practices, Veeam can help customers to avoid data loss caused by a ransomware attack and recover fast and securely.

In this solution brief, you will discover several techniques to fight ransomware, including:

  • The 3-2-1 Rule for data protection
  • How to recover your data after a ransomware attack with Veeam
  • Unique Veeam features that facilitate a rapid file recovery from ransomware

White Paper
March 07, 2017

Ransomware was one of the biggest security threats for businesses in 2016. As data becomes increasingly valuable – and with the new technologies available – the proverbial bad guys will be taking aim at weak systems and critical data repositories. Studies show that data breaches or loss of vital information will cost companies around $2.1 trillion globally by 2019, four times higher than the cost in 2015.

Ransomware goes back in history 30 years and extorted huge amounts of money from organizations that paid to unlock their data. This malware evolved into one of the most feared threats for IT environments and it can even be purchased on dedicated platforms by ill-intended people.

Preparation is the key for dealing with ransomware and one of the most important consideration is understanding how it works and the risks it brings. Ransomware education became vital for organizations that must keep their employees aware of the risks they are exposed to and how to avoid malicious content online.

From this essential guide, you will learn more about ransomware, including:

  • Its history and impact on businesses
  • Risks to the corporation and system administrators’ key factors to know
  • Precautions, best practices and how to fight the different types of ransomware
  • And more!

Most organizations today rely on virtualized IT infrastructures. Veeam® helps them to provide and increase Availability of critical workloads running on their systems. Due to various factors, some physical servers cannot be virtualized, along with endpoints that might not be protectable in their entirety by leveraging back-up solutions built for virtualized systems. Thus, everyday occurrences such as lapses in connectivity, hardware failures, file corruption, ransomware or even theft can leave an organization’s data at risk.
Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows solves these issues by closing the gap that some enterprises face with large, heterogeneous environments and further enabling workload mobility by delivering Availability for cloud-based workloads.
This paper describes:
  • the main concepts behind Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows
  • how agents can be managed centrally by integration into Veeam Backup & Replication™
  • and more!

Outages, file corruptions and ransomware attacks threaten businesses’ ability to keep serving customers in today’s highly competitive environment. Unplanned data center outages and file corruptions can be significant or even deadly for the business. Systems need to be back up and running quickly, but IT organizations find themselves in a tough situation when the time it takes to restore mission-critical data or application services is significantly longer than service level agreements (SLAs) specify.

Read this Tech Talk paper to find out how an all-flash solution can stave off disaster by providing:

  • Availability and near-constant data access
  • Fast and flexible recovery
  • Virtual, physical and cloud data management
  • And more!
