Accelerate Ransomware Recovery

Data protection strategies designed for disasters, data corruption, or accidental deletions don’t always hold up against ransomware attacks. Pure Storage helps mitigate ransomware attacks by securing critical data from being altered or destroyed—and allowing you to recover quickly from an attack.


Secure Backups Against Ransomware

Pure SafeMode™ snapshots protect backup data and metadata by creating a secure copy. Ransomware can’t eradicate, modify, or encrypt SafeMode snapshots, even with admin credentials. With just a few clicks, you can restore business-critical data quickly and at scale. Available with both FlashBlade and FlashArray.

Restore Systems Quickly and Completely

When disaster strikes, every minute counts. Bringing systems back online quickly and at scale is imperative. Pure FlashRecover provides near-instant restore capabilities of 1PB+ per day.

Snapshots with All-flash Simplicity

Snapshot scheduling and retention are fully customizable and easy to deploy. Expand and upgrade without disruption. And there’s no need to change your backup software. Simply set it and forget it.

Move at the Speed of Business

Legacy disaster-recovery solutions are slow.  FlashBlade smashes your recovery-point and recovery-time targets with up to 270TB per hour data-recovery performance for production and test/dev workloads.

Think Twice About Your Storage Vendor

Pure Storage is named a Leader in two Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ reports.

What is Ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware that encrypts your files and requires paying an attacker a ransom in return for restoring access to your data. As there’s no guarantee that a perpetrator will honor the terms of the ransom, preventing ransomware through cybersecurity best practices and routine snapshots is your best option.

People also ask:

1. How does ransomware work?

A ransomware attack infects a computer or device, gaining administrative privileges and encrypting all your files. The attacker will normally leave a note demanding a ransom in return for unencrypting your files. Ransomware has similar attack vectors to other malware, including email phishing scams or targeted exploitation of personnel or security vulnerabilities.

2. How can you prevent ransomware attacks?

Common methods to prevent ransomware attacks include:

  • Keeping your operating system and technology stack up-to-date to stay ahead of known exploits and vulnerabilities
  • Cybersecurity investments (e.g., InfoSec training, network security audits, and vulnerability testing)
  • Controlling access to secure files and data through admin rights and privilege management
  • Backing up files through frequent snapshots and other data-protection methods

3. How do SafeMode snapshots safeguard your data against ransomware?

Pure Storage SafeMode snapshots enable organisations to lock down data from malicious attacks. SafeMode creates read-only snapshots of backup data and associated metadata catalogues. SafeMode snapshots cannot be deleted, encrypted, or modified. SafeMode snapshots are available on FlashArray and FlashBlade systems.
