Ask just about any storage administrator, IT professional, or industry analyst about public cloud storage costs and they will all say that it’s cheaper than on-prem storage. It’s certainly what the trade press says over and over again, but like much non-corroborated conventional wisdom, it’s incorrect. The best way to demonstrate the fallacy of these perceptions is to take a look at a real comparison using Nexsan Unityvs. AWS S3.
In light of the recent worldwide ransomware attacks, we will also be addressing how on-prem secure storage delivers much better protection so you are back up and running in minutes without paying any ransom.
Join Nexsan Founder and VP of Technical Engagement, Gary Watson, and Marc Staimer, President of Dragon Slayer Consulting, as they discuss SIX key things you should understand about Public Cloud Storage vs. On-Prem Storage:
• Baseline assumptions and comparisons
• The advantages and disadvantages
• Detailed cost comparison
• Next generation Unified Plus features such as EFSS, multi-site sync and secure archives
• Security and Privacy
• How to Prepare for a Ransomware Attack
As an organization grows the number of use cases the data center needs to support increases with it. What starts out as a NAS for file sharing, moves to a SAN for database applications, and then storage for data protection. As the organization hits full stride it might look at arching to limit growth and a mobility solution to support a distributed workforce. The problem is each one of these storage types are silo’ed and have to be implemented, operated and maintained separately. As a result, storage ends up consuming a large chunk of the IT budget.

We’ve all seen the headlines, “Ransomware Attack Holds Company Hostage” or similar. The reality today is being attacked by ransomware is among the most devastating cybercriminal threats out there. American companies were projected to pay over $1 billion in ransomware payments in 2016 alone, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Join Gary Watson, Nexsan Founder and CTO for an overview of Nexsan’s UnityTM, the first unified storage platform that combines enterprise NAS and high performance block storage, PLUS some very unique mobility, archive and multi-site synchronization. Unity’s fully integrated private cloud with intelligent, patented software enhances enterprise-class unified storage with Enterprise File Sync & Share (EFSS), Mobile Access, Multi-site Sync, and a Secure Active Archive client in a simple to manage and cost-efficient system that is fully compliant with security protocols.

In the previous year, various organizations have been plagued by ransomware attacks which have brought devastating consequences on industries. Ransomware is a type of malicious computer virus designed by cybercriminals to immobilize users from accessing their systems by encrypting their infected data, until a ransom is paid. What is even more alarming is not just the rapid proliferation of this extortionate hacking, but its relentless evolution putting larger and more profitable businesses and institutions in great ordeal.
Recent surveys also show that these ransomware attacks will continue to grow as cybercriminals are getting more aggressive in developing new and sophisticated threats. Thus, it is imperative for companies to remain vigilant and proactive in setting up new security and back-up mechanisms that can easily detect and prevent these attacks. It also pays to reassess their policies and procedures in place to fend off regulatory and operational risks.
In this Webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an overview of the latest trends and critical issues with respect to the increasing risks brought by ransomware. Speakers will also share helpful insights and practical tips on how to develop best defense strategies against ransomware attacks.

Ransomware is the number one threat to an organization's data. These malware programs infiltrate an organization and encrypt every file they can access. The only way to unencrypt the data is pay a fee to the malware creator. Hence the title ransomware. Studies indicate that malware infected as many as 70 percent of businesses just this year!
The problem is most of the recommended ransomware protection strategies are not able to protect an organization from this type of attack. In this live webinar join experts from Storage Switzerland and Nexsan as we discuss the five reasons you are not as protected from a ransomware attack as you think you are. More importantly learn how to create rock solid protection from any kind of ransomware attack.
