In Episode 2 of Asigra’s Original Series, ‘Ransomware 2.0: Shield your data from Attack Loops,’ we’ll be discussing why immutable backups are no longer sufficient to protect company data from ransomware attacks and exploring strategies you can implement to bolster backup security. Topics for discussion include: - Understanding how Ransomware 2.0 works and the risk it poses to corporate data - The fall of traditional ransomware mitigation strategies such as immutable and air-gapped backups - How attackers are breaking into corporate backups to improve their chances of getting ransom - Why it is important not to be overconfident in the integrity of your backups. - And more…

Asigra Tigris is the world’s most secure backup software platform with advanced anti-ransomware properties to protect your enterprise’s last line of defense against hackers. Your backups. Cybercriminals have adapted to current backup protection techniques like air-gapping and immutability by launching trojan horse Attack-Loops(TM) that embed malware into backups and gets access to stolen credentials to sabotage backup sets. Asigra reduces risk exposure with multiple layers of protection including bi-directional malware scanning, deep multi-factor authentication, password-free biometric authentication, backup renaming, and a soft delete for administrators.
