Put Ransomware Nightmares To Rest

In 2017 alone, over 5 petabytes of Hadoop and NoSQL data have been compromised by ransomware attacks alone. If your production data is compromised, Imanis Data enables you to quickly and efficiently recover data to an alternative system so your company can continue serving customers despite the attack.

Preventing Ransomware Attacks Can Be Difficult

Having strict security protocols in place can help you prevent ransomware attacks, but ensuring all your employees at an individual level are doing the same is a difficult task. Sometimes all it takes is one wrong click when dealing with an unknown email and your business could be at risk. Proactive detection can be your next line of defense against ransomware attacks.
  • Determine Patterns

    Monitoring the patterns of how data in your organization is treated can help in detection of abnormal data behaviors.

  • Predictive Models

    Machine learning can be applied to these patterns to build predictive models that identify potential threats.

  • Proactive Notifications

    When data acts out of character against the predictive models established by the Imanis Data machine learning algorithms, the system can flag possible threats or anomalous data losses for further investigation.

64 Countries were hit with the WannaCry ransomware attack in 2017
$2.4M in estimated ransom payments were made by a single organization
638M ransomware attacks were attempted in 2016

Through Reltio data-driven applications business users access and expect constant availability of this data. Imanis Data's backup, recovery and test data management solution is an ideal fit for our rapidly growing DataStax Enterprise environment, and their recent security and AWS S3 enhancements are critical for our customers, particularly in highly regulatory environments.

The rapid rise of big data applications is changing how companies protect and manage the availability of data throughout the application life cycle -- concurrently we are acutely more aware of the tremendous business value that all data holds.

If you thought the need for backup somehow evaporated with the advent of Hadoop, its probably because you don't really understand backup.

Co-Founder & Chief Analyst

Business applications built on top of modern data platforms such as MongoDB and Cassandra are just as exposed to the threat of ransomware and critical data loss as traditional applications. Yet, many IT managers are just beginning to look at data protection requirements for these applications. IT organizations need to consider data protection tools designed specifically for these environments, such as Imanis Data, because some of the underlying architectural issues are different from traditional data types.

Phil Goodwin

Research Director

Speed and efficiency of recovery is vitally important in helping us achieve our business goals. We’ve found that Imanis Data 3.0 is the only platform that can easily scale with our growing business and data needs. Its rapid backup and recovery capabilities have reduced our potential downtime to a minimum and have helped our business run more efficiently.

Rodrigo Balan

Network Operations Manager

When we moved to a Big Data architecture, we knew that application and data recovery was a fundamental requirement. Where most companies fall short, Imanis Data provides that at scale.

Last Line of Defense

As technology gets increasingly complex, security threats and other malicious behavior of this nature become more frequent and difficult to thwart. While prevention of a ransomware attack is the first priority, Imanis Data can act as your last line of defense.
  • Predict

    Intelligent threat-sensing backup architecture looks for patterns of data movement and churn, and builds custom predictive models to immediately flag an event as a possible threat or intrusion.

  • Backup

    Multiple point-in-time copies of data along with underlying metadata, distributed across geographies, is critical to protecting against data loss. A distributed scale-out architecture allows you to back up petabytes of data quickly, seamlessly, and with ease.

  • Recover

    Minimize any impact on business operations and quickly recover after an attack. Quickly and easily locate the objects for recovery using our Google-like catalog, Imanis Data FastFind.

$1M Reasons to Wanna Cry

While the WannaCry ransomware attacks are well known for how widespread they were, attacking people from over 150 countries, demanding $300 from each victim, another ransomware attack proved to be much more devastating. In 2017, South Korean web provider Nayana announced it had become a victim of a ransomware attack identified as Erebus that locked up more than 3,400 websites. The hackers behind the attack demanded over $1.6 million in ransom to free the affected servers, and in the end Nayana ended up paying the largest ransomware demand every settling with the hackers for $1M.
