Zerto, IBM Cloud for VMware Solutions’ Disaster Recovery solution, has won the prestigious award of being the Ransomware Protection Company of Year at the 2017 Storage Awards!
The number of ransomware attacks worldwide has grown exponentially, from 2015 to 2016, with ransomware attacks rising from 3.8 million to 638 million incidents, a 167x increase.* Ransomware is a looming danger that threatens nearly every enterprise. Fortunately, Zerto on IBM Cloud allows customers to quickly recover from a ransomware attack without interrupting their applications or customers.
Zerto on IBM Cloud mitigates cyberattacks by protecting existing workloads with recovery point objectives (RPO) measured in seconds and recovery time objectives (RTO) measured in minutes. These RPO and RTO times are achieved through Zerto’s continuous block level replication that replicates directly from the hypervisor, which enables Zerto to recover up to 30 days’ worth of checkpoints every few seconds. Zerto’s low RPO and RTO times, as well as it’s virtual-aware replication allows customers to lessen the consequences of ransomware, as companies can quickly recover their data with little data loss or downtime.
