Endpoints 360° View: The Paradigm Shift

Piyusha Jagtap, Associate Product Manager

Today, the data protection market is seeing a shift from traditional backup solutions to security-focused products due to the increasing sophistication of cyber attacks. Though backup is still at the core of it, businesses are now aware of the critical importance of safeguarding their data against a range of threats. This shift has led to a growing emphasis on proactive security measures and integration with other security products and services. Although still in its early stages, this transformation offers businesses a critical opportunity to rethink and reinforce their data protection strategies with the latest security-focused technologies and solutions.

The Threat Landscape

Stats on increasing ransomware threats
Organizations experiencing more than one endpoint ransomware attack that compromised their infrastructure

Recent ransomware attacks on major companies and institutions serve as a stark reminder of the importance of implementing strong endpoint security measures. The Colonial Pipeline (2021), Kaseya VSA (2021), City of Atlanta (2018), University of California San Francisco (2020), and more such attacks all resulted in significant disruptions to services and, in some cases, the payment of large ransoms to attackers. The root cause of these was vulnerable endpoints. These incidents underscore the importance of implementing a strong endpoint security posture to prevent and have a mitigation plan in place in the event of a ransomware or malware attack.
