How Druva can help MSPs achieve Cyber Ninja Status through Advanced Ransomware Features

Nishesh Saxena, Product Manager

In today's ever-changing threat landscape, it is more important than ever for MSPs to have a robust cyber resiliency solution for their customers in place. Druva's Cyber Resiliency solution provides MSPs with the tools they need to protect their customers from cyberattacks, and recover quickly from data breaches.

As an MSP, why should I be interested?

  • A successful ransomware attack resulting in data loss for an MSP’s customer, can result in:

    • loss of productivity for the MSP and their customers

    • Customer/revenue loss

    • Negative impact to MSP’s reputation and brand

  • According to a research report published by Spherical Insights & Consulting, the Global Cybersecurity Market Size is expected to reach USD 501.60 billion by 2030. This opens up a large global opportunity for the MSPs to offer cybersecurity solutions to their customers.

  • Cyber resiliency services can be offered as a premium add-on service; allowing service providers to generate additional revenue beyond their traditional service offerings.

Why would my customers want to use Druva’s Cyber Resiliency solutions?

  • According to “Ransomware the true cost to business 2022” study, 73% of respondents were a target of at least one ransomware attack in the past 24 months.

  • As per the same study, 46% of organizations reported losses from a ransomware attack and 67% of these organizations reported their losses between $1 million and $10 million (USD).

  • Very small businesses are extremely vulnerable to ransomware attacks, and may not survive one incident.

The time for Cyber Resiliency is NOW!!

Druva offers a three-step process specifically designed to help MSPs build their own ransomware playbook and safeguard their customers' critical data.

Step 1: Protect

The initial step in preparing for a cyber attack involves ensuring the existence of a clean and secure copy of your customers’ critical data. Druva's cloud-first SaaS approach guarantees data integrity and availability with features such as an inherent air gap, secure Data Lock, and zero-trust security. These capabilities lay a solid foundation for cyber resilience.

Druva's cloud-first SaaS approach establishes an inherent air gap between the primary environment and the backup environment. This isolation makes it challenging for attackers to access or manipulate backup data. Furthermore, Druva's Data Lock feature ensures that backup data remains unalterable and can only be managed by authorized personnel.

Zero-trust security is another crucial aspect of Druva's cloud-first SaaS approach. It requires authentication for every user and device before granting access to backup data, thereby preventing unauthorized access by attackers who may have obtained user credentials.

Step 2: Prepare

Once your data is protected, it is important to enhance your security posture and detect issues before they cause substantial harm. Merely protecting data is not sufficient. To be prepared in the event of an attack, you need to elevate your cybersecurity defenses.

Druva offers security posture management tools that provide a comprehensive overview of your backup environment through Druva’s Security Posture & Observability tools; which includes:

  1. Anomaly Detection

  2. Pre-built SIEM Integrations

  3. Rollback Actions

  4. Security Command Center

By identifying and addressing these risks, you can improve your customers’ overall cybersecurity strength and reduce the likelihood of successful cyber attacks.

Anomaly detection leverages machine learning algorithms that identify anomalous data sets that may indicate a ransomware attack. By swiftly detecting these data sets, you can take immediate action to prevent the attack and minimize potential damages.

Step 3: Recover

The final step in Druva's ransomware playbook focuses on recovering from an attack. Despite the best protection and preparation, cyber attacks can still occur. Hence, it is crucial to have a recovery plan in place.

Druva provides a comprehensive recovery plan that encompasses steps for containing the attack, identifying its source, and restoring data from clean backups through Druva’s Accelerated Ransomware Recovery tools; this includes:

  1. Curated Recovery

  2. Quarantine

  3. Recovery Scan

  4. Sandbox Recovery

  5. SOAR Integrations

Druva's three-step process offers a comprehensive approach to protect your customers’ critical data from cyberattacks. By focusing on protection, preparation, and recovery, you can ensure that your customers are well-prepared for any eventuality and capable of quickly bouncing back from a cyber attack.

In addition to its security benefits, Druva's Cyber Resiliency solution can also help MSPs improve their margins. Druva's cloud-based architecture eliminates the need for expensive on-premises hardware and software, and its Cryber Resiliency capabilities free up MSPs to focus on other tasks.

If you are an MSP, Druva's Cyber Resiliency solution is a must-have for your business. I encourage you to learn more about Druva's Cyber Resiliency solution.
