The cloud has become the target of hackers and there is no end in sight to this trend. […]
According to SonicWall’s 2022 Cyber Threat Report, cyberattacks against businesses have increased over the past year. For example, reported ransomware attacks have increased by 105 percent globally. In the following, Quorum Distribution GmbH explains how important it is to establish an efficient and reliable security strategy for the management of sensitive and business-critical data in multi-cloud environments.
Vulnerable and complex IT infrastructures
In the course of global digital transformation, the cloud has become increasingly important for numerous processes in companies. At the same time, however, it also represents a vulnerability and hackers exploit this. These attacks often focus on business-critical data, the loss of which hits companies particularly hard.
Attacks on the cloud are often successful because many companies use a confusing IT landscape with silo solutions. In the long run, these infrastructures increase the costs and the administrative burden. IT departments therefore need a way to reduce their company’s attack surface in the cloud in the long term. It is therefore advisable to use solutions that adapt independently to the increasingly complex requirements and thus make the work of the IT team easier.
Protection through autonomous and cloud-optimized solutions
When data is moved to the cloud, an overview of the IT architecture is important for companies. Hybrid infrastructures with dependencies between the platforms are often used. IT teams must continuously monitor the data inventory in order to be able to intervene in good time in the event of anomalies. However, automated data management allows different workloads and data to be managed efficiently and securely.
Ideally, the solution is scalable, optimized for the cloud, and manages the data based on web-scale and automation technologies. Containerized, programmable, and AI-powered microservices architectures can be used to provide an autonomous and unified data management service in the cloud.
Cloud-scale data backup technology
Quorum works closely with Veritas Technologies and sells their solutions for data high availability, backups and recovery in Austria. When it comes to data protection, Quorum recommends NetBackup 10 to ensure all information is fully protected in multi-cloud environments. Through the use of artificial intelligence and hyper-automation, NetBackup 10 is particularly suitable for complex IT landscapes with different cloud environments. With advanced multi-cloud storage and orchestrated tiering capabilities, the solution achieves a low total cost of ownership (TCO). And with extensive support for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, backup storage costs can be reduced by up to 95 percent. The solution also has simplified, automated processes and therefore works extremely efficiently.
Ransomware resilience through built-in malware scanning
NetBackup 10 increases the resilience of IT infrastructures to ransomware via integrated malware scanning. Automatic scan during data backup and before recovery uses artificial intelligence to prevent the risk of malicious code injection. Content-aware, granular flexibility enables fast recovery of clean data.
