As kids, we would pull the sheets over our heads, frightened of the ghosts lurking in the shadows or the boogieman hiding underneath the bed.
We have different fears as adults.
The “monsters” we worry about today are cybercriminals hiding behind computer screens, stealing and encrypting vital data that causes massive disruption to business operations.
This nightmarish situation can happen quickly. In just 5 minutes and 50 seconds, a major ransomware strain known as LockBit can encrypt 100,000 files, according to Splunk. Due to the current threat landscape, protecting data at various levels is imperative.
The solution? A multi-layered security approach that intertwines each level of protection to prevent hackers from accessing various entry points and infiltrating your storage environments.
