Ransomware protection

Unbreakable solutions for your peace of mind

Free yourself from the chaos and cost of ransomware

When it comes to ransomware risk, no one is immune and everyone is a target. It’s not a matter of “if” but when.

Today, an infection occurs every 11 seconds. By 2031, it’s estimated that there will be a new attack every two seconds, costing victims $265 billion annually — a cost increase of 30% every year.*

Never worry about data. Never pay ransoms.

Even if your company can afford a ransom payment, you simply can’t afford to lose your most precious asset: your data.

Thanks to Scality’s unbreakable cloud storage for data centers, data loss is something our customers simply don’t have to worry about.

Scality solutions defend your data against ransomware — plus other threats like planned/unplanned outages, software bugs, failure events, and natural disasters — so it’s always 100% available and never lost.

The key to ransomware protection is Object Lock

Organizations that are proactive about protection and well-prepared to recover know that a strong data backup plan is more important than ever, and S3 Object Lock functionality is the key.

Object Lock assures the safety of your backup data by rendering it immutable (impervious to deletion or modification) and, therefore, hardened to malicious encryption.

When you restore from an immutable backup repo, recovery from an attack is swift and simple. It’s your insurance policy against ransomware.
