Why are attackers now targeting storage and backup service systems? Let me start with the good news. There’s been huge progress over the last two decades in increasing the security of the network, computer and application layer, But here comes the bad news. Security innovation for storage and backup remains low.
Why do I need to Secure my Storage and Backup ?
While an attack on an endpoint or server can cause problems, one that targets storage or backup can be truly devastating. This is because an attack on single storage can bring down thousands of servers and wipe out terabytes of data. Attackers can also destroy snapshots and backups. This can be done under the radar, without any alerts being triggered by threat Intel or data loss prevention tools.
When a hacker gets control of a desktop, the damage is not that much. But when a hacker gains control over your storage & backup, they have access to All of your Data, which can be devastating.
So it’s really not surprising that storage and backup are your last line of defense against ransomware. The good news is that properly hardened storage and backup will guarantee quick recovery.
