Prepare for cyberattacks and stay ready. Pure Storage® helps you build the most resilient architecture to get your backups up and running quickly for the fastest return to normal operations.

Accelerate Ransomware Recovery

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

Secure Backups Against Ransomware

Pure SafeMode™ protects backup data and metadata—ensuring ransomware cannot eradicate, modify, or encrypt data—even if admin credentials are compromised. Available with 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 FlashBlade//S™  provides petabyte-scale recovery that’s up to 3x faster than competitive offerings.

Snapshots with All-flash Simplicity

Snapshot scheduling and retention are fully customizable and easy to deploy. Expand and upgrade without disruption and with 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.  Pure’s all-flash storage solutions smash your recovery-point and recovery-time targets, dramatically improving data recovery speeds without the need to change your backup software.

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?

While nothing can prevent a ransomware attack, there are steps you can take to mitigate damage and downtime including:

  • 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 does Pure SafeMode safeguard your data against ransomware?

Pure SafeMode enables organizations to lock down data from malicious attacks. SafeMode creates read-only snapshots of backup data and associated metadata catalogs. SafeMode-secured snapshots cannot be deleted, encrypted, or modified even if admin credentials are compromised. SafeMode is available on FlashArray and FlashBlade systems.
