VergeIO, the ultraconverged infrastructure (UCI) company, has released a new solution for ransomware protection -- IOfortify. This latest innovation combines robust security; unlimited, unchangeable clones; and rapid, complete recovery to fortify data integrity and provide users with true peace of mind.
IOfortify offers the VergeOS’ hardened operating system, designed to withstand the most sophisticated ransomware threats. Unlike other protection solutions, VergeOS eliminates vulnerabilities through a hardened protection foundation that ensures data remains safe and ensures complete recovery of any infected virtual machines.
Combining this data resilience with unlimited, unchangeable, space-efficient clones allows users to effortlessly roll back to an earlier version of its data center architecture to ensure business-critical information remains safe and secure from unwanted changes. Creating a set of space-saving copies takes milliseconds and allows the preservation of an unaffected infrastructure and VM state at any given time as a failsafe to any attempted ransomware attacks.
Recovery is crucial if malicious software is deployed. IOfortify provides quick and thorough restoration of systems, applications, and files. Because it can accelerate the restoration process, IOfortify enables organizations to get back on track in moments, reducing downtime and efficiently ensuring business continuity.
IOfortify does more than help users recover from an attack; it helps them identify if they are under attack and points them to which clone is the best candidate for rapid recovery with minimal data loss. Because VergeOS has control over the file system, it can detect anomalies. With IOfortify, customers can receive immediate alerts of an attack, giving them the opportunity to act fast to prevent it and activate rapid restoration services.
“With IOfortify, we’ve redefined ransomware protection,” said Greg Campbell, VergeIO founder and CTO. “One hundred percent of VergeIO customers who were affected by ransomware have successfully restored their entire system to a secure state within a matter of minutes.”
