Enforce a Zero-Trust Ransomware Defense

As enterprises adopt multiple clouds, the attack surface grows, and inconsistencies in the operating model prevail to escalate the risk of cyberattacks, such as increasingly sophisticated ransomware attacks. Ransomware is an existential threat to organizations, exploiting weaknesses and inefficiencies in existing defenses. Once inside your data center, bad actors move laterally using legitimate ports and protocols and fileless techniques. When an attack happens, recovery is long and unpredictable due to the lack of automation in the many tools and processes involved. Enterprises must apply Zero Trust principles to strengthen their ransomware defense. Customers need lateral security controls to detect anomalous behavior, contain and evict threats, and an end-to-end recovery solution as a last line of defense.  Watch the video to understand how VMware NSX and VMware Ransomware Recovery can work together to address the entire ransomware protection cycle (Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, Recover).


Stop ransomware attacks—even those using legitimate and/or encrypted channels—with strong distributed lateral security that includes micro-segmentation and AI/ML-powered NDR for enterprise-wide visibility and consistent policy across clouds.


Confidently recover from modern ransomware as an additional layer of defense to zero-trust safeguards when unauthorized operations get through; utilize a fully managed, purpose-built solution that identifies, cleanses, validates, and prevents reinfection during the recovery process using behavioral analysis and cloud IREs.

Ransomware attacks are escalating and are the #1 cause of DR events; avg. cost is $4.62M[1]. One ransomware attack takes place every 11 seconds today[2]. Furthermore, 44% of intrusions perform lateral movement[3].  Ransomware defense is a business imperative and a C-level priority.
