SecureData Gives You Options Against Ransomware
Ransomware poses one of the greatest threats to government agencies, organizations, and businesses globally. It weaponizes the sensitive personal or proprietary information that these entities regularly store and leverages it for the purposes of extortion. Information is a company’s most valuable asset, and protecting it requires careful preparation and constant vigilance.
The U.S. government’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has given specific guidelines for protection against ransomware attacks. Among its key recommendations are the use of offline encrypted backups and hardware-encrypted portable storage devices.
For more than a decade, SecureData has driven innovation in FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware-encrypted storage. Our award-winning line of SecureDrive® BT and SecureDrive® KP drives gives your data the highest level of protection against unauthorized access.
SecureDrive’s BT line when combined with our Remote Management Console gives you a complete solution to managed security. The Remote Management Console allows IT administrators to control who, when and where your data is accessed.
Additionally, when it comes to protecting the most sensitive regulated or proprietary information, you need a comprehensive plan that also addresses endpoint security. That’s why SecureData developed SecureGuard® USB (by ClevX®). Accessed within our Remote Management (RM) Console, SecureGuard® prevents the spread of malware by limiting computer access to only authorized USB devices.
Managing Endpoint Security with SecureGuard USB
Ransomware can easily spread across computer networks when an infected USB drive is connected. With SecureGuard USB, administrators can limit the use of external drives only to those that have been authorized. Any device not whitelisted for use will disable the computer it is plugged into until the device is removed. SecureGuard USB works within the Remote Management Console to give even greater control of sensitive data and endpoint security.
Ransomware attacks are common, but they aren’t inevitable. Call us at 424-363-8535 to discuss how our comprehensive data security solutions can help keep you safe from ransomware attacks.
