Trilio Introduces Comprehensive Ransomware Protection and Recoverability for Cloud-Native Applications

Trilio, a leading provider of cloud-native data protection, today announced the release of TrilioVault for Kubernetes (TVK) v2.5, which offers a comprehensive approach to ransomware protection and recoverability in alignment with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and in support of Zero-Trust architectures.

Enterprises and organizations alike understand the damage caused by ransomware and have come up with various strategies to mitigate risk and facilitate recovery. Keeping backup copies of data and “point-in-time captures” are the most effective means of thwarting ransomware attacks, since there’s no need to pay to recover data if there’s another copy of the data safe and sound. However, attackers can also target the backups.

Attackers frequently try to penetrate the backup system either through the administrative console or the storage media itself in order to modify and delete point-in-time data. As a result, organizations can lose data and not even know about it until later. This greatly inhibits an enterprise’s ability to restore business operations after their data is held ransom.

Trilio is leveraging the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to align its capabilities and approach, specifically the best practices detailed in the Data Integrity projects of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at NIST. The three main components of the framework include Identify and ProtectDetect and Mitigate, and Recover. All TVK ransomware protection features today and beyond will align to this framework.
