Virtual Summit 2021
When your data gets taken hostage by ransomware,
Bad actors use ransomware to take data hostage every 11 seconds1.
From Colonial to Kaseya, ransomware attacks continue to make headlines, and it’s not just large enterprises that are suffering. More than 60 percent of small companies that experience a ransomware attack go out of business within a year2.
Some companies refuse to negotiate because they have backups, but 27% of them still don’t recover their data3. Most backup providers are no match for sophisticated new variants of ransomware that specifically target backup data for encryption and deletion.
Watch Druva’s 2021 Cyber Resilience Virtual Summit, where security leaders, Druva experts, and your peers will discuss how to make sure ransomware is no more than a minor inconvenience. You’ll get peace of mind with:
- Integrations between modern security and backup technologies
- Emerging best practices and real-world experiences from companies like yours that are fighting back
- New Druva innovations that span data protection and cyber resilience
