Continuity announced its partnership with Bulwark Distribution to secure organizations’ storage and backup systems against ransomware and other cyberattacks.
The partnership is based on Continuity’s StorageGuard, a security posture management solution that will enable Bulwark’s channel partners and system integrators across United Arab Emirates and other GCC countries & the Indian sub-continent regions, to automatically detect, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations in their clients’ storage and backup systems. This will help them protect their data, and ensure recoverability.
Enterprise storage and backup systems are becoming a growing target for ransomware. Cybercriminals realize that an attack on a single storage or backup system is the biggest determining factor to show if an organization will pay the ransom.
“Ransomware has pushed storage, backup and data recovery back onto the corporate agenda.” said Gil Hecht, CEO of Continuity. “We are thrilled to partner with Bulwark to help provide greater security confidence for their partners, by eliminating security risks across their clients’ data storage & backup systems.” Hecht said.
According to the Gartner Report: Hype Cycle for Storage and Data Protection Technologies, 2022, network-attached storage (NAS) and scale-out file system storage provides inadequate protection from malicious deletion or encryption of data. Cyberstorage provides active defense against cyber attack on unstructured data.”
“StorageGuard is an exciting innovation that fills a gap for our customers. For the first time, our partners can help their clients harden their storage and backup systems, to improve cyber resiliency and data protection. Organizations will be able to automatically detect all security risks, and prioritize them in order of urgency and business impact.” said Jose Menacherry, Managing Director at Bulwark.
