5 Key Features of Ransomware MitigationNasuni's Bilotti and Kuza on What to Look for in a New Solution
Ransomware attacks are on the rise, and they are increasingly destructive. What, then, should enterprises look for in a ransomware mitigation solution? Nasuni's John Bilotti and Barrie Kuza detail five key qualities to seek.
"There are a lot of adversaries out there taking advantage of the current situation of the world, and trying to find ways to monetize that for themselves," says Bilotti, CISO and CISO at Nasuni.
"We've definitely seen a huge uptick [in reported attacks] from our customers," says Kuza, Nasuni's VP of Product Management. "In the past, it would happen occasionally - once every couple of months," she says. "But now we've had some weekends since the pandemic started where we've had two or three customers call in, having been hit with ransomware over the course of a week."
In an interview, Bilotti and Kuza discuss:
- The latest ransomware trends;
- 5 key features, from fast recovery to pre-attack testing;
- How Nasuni is helping enterprises build out their ransomware response capabilities.
