5 Ways Next-Gen Data Management Boosts Cyber Resiliency

5 Ways Next-Gen Data Management Boosts Cyber Resiliency

Data is under attack. The 1,070% year-over-year uptick in ransomware threats proves it1. And today’s bad actors aren’t just encrypting data. They’re destroying backups and exfiltrating data so they can profit and damage brand reputations at the same time. That’s increasing the ransomware blast radius. Don’t let ransomware attackers win. Instead, fortify your environment and improve your response strategy with five next-gen data management powers.

1. Protect your backup data and system
Legacy backup isn’t architected to defend data against ransomware. That’s why companies still pay ransom. What’s needed is data safeguards built into your backup that help preserve customer trust and competitive edge. Look for a solution with native immutable backup snapshots because those can’t be encrypted, modified or deleted, protecting the authenticity of your data. Gain additional layers of protection by ensuring your backup has rules such as software-based write once, read many (WORM) with time-bound, data policy locks and FIPS-certified encryption as well as modern and flexible data isolation onsite and in public clouds that helps you meet your recovery time and point objectives plus organizational SLAs. Also find solutions that are fault tolerant, allowing you to operate despite a failed component, and let you configure automated security controls, including auditing and scanning, to eliminate human error.

2. Reduce the risk of unauthorized access
compromising user credentials has become a top attack vector for bad actors seeking a payday. A data management platform with strict access control capabilities more effectively stops unauthorized people from taking advantage of compromised credentials. Counter insider threats and external hackers with a next-gen data management platform that supports granular role-based access control (RBAC) as part of a least-privilege, zero trust principles model; multi-factor authentication to verify who people say they are; and monitored modification that requires two sets of eyes approving every critical system change.
