Cybersecurity resiliency cloud provider Druva Inc. today announced it has expanded its portfolio with new data posture assessment and observability capabilities.
Druva’s new cyberattack readiness tools are designed to give customers a centralized view of their data security posture, deep visibility into data entropy changes and the ability to assess data risks. Combined, the innovations are said to enable organizations to move beyond data recoverability to proactively prepare for threats with the industry’s most comprehensive data security insights.
The company argues that at a time when cybersecurity investment has hit all-time highs, 66% of ransomware attacks have still succeeded in the last year. Druva believes organizations need actionable insights across primary and secondary environments to combat this ever-growing threat.
The new capabilities offer customers several benefits, including a new Security Command Center powered by global data telemetry. The new center delivers organizations a centralized view of data and security risks across all workloads in their backup environment. On the security posture side, customized suggestions help improve security posture based on an organization’s deployment.
Updated data observability offers granular visibility into data changes, access and permissions, as well as admin activities and policy changes to empower incident response and recovery. In the event of credential compromise, Druva users can roll back critical changes and restore critical data even if it was deleted using administrative credentials.
A new data lock feature is said to deliver 100% immutability by allowing administrators to lock data, making it impossible to alter, with the ability to retrieve it at a later date for compliance purposes through Druva support.
With the expanded abilities, Druva says that it delivers an unprecedented depth and breadth of data intelligence.
“Despite spending more money for products and people to secure their data, organizations are continuing to fall victim to cyberattacks and pay ransoms at an alarming rate,” Stephen Manley (pictured left), chief technology officer of Druva. “With new innovations such as global data risk visibility, security posture analysis and end-to-end immutable data retention policies, Druva plays a critical role in defending an enterprise and orchestrating its recovery from attack.
Manley and Jaspreet Singh (pictured right), founder and chief executive officer of Druva, spoke with John Walls, host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s livestreaming studio, in November on meeting the challenge of evolving ransomware.
What we’re seeing now is … [criminals] getting smarter about the ransomware attack,” Manley said in the interview. “So laying low longer, corrupting or attacking data a little bit more slowly so it’s harder to detect. Specifically, attacking backup infrastructure so that you won’t be able to recover exfiltrating data.”
