Reduce your overall risk profile

Knowing where your most important information is located and limiting access to it reduces the impact of a ransomware attack.  Assessing your exposure risk is a key first step to safeguarding your environment.  Take quick action to reduce your attack surface from new insights derived from your content and access patterns.   

Respond to suspicious activities

High data activity levels can be a clear indicator of a ransomware attack.  DataGravity monitors and alerts you when access anomalies occur, so you can take swift action.  When rapid data change rates are observed, DataGravity coordinates with your underlying storage to automatically create snapshot copies of your files for easy recovery.

Accelerate response and recovery

Quickly establish the time of the attack, its root cause, and the attack’s total impact with built-in forensic analysis tools from DataGravity.  Know exactly what files, file shares, and virtual machines were impacted so you can quickly recover lost files and restore full operations. 

Ransomware is fast becoming the number one security issue that CISO’s must address.
