Disaster recovery specialist Databarracks has launched a new DR service designed specifically to target cyber threats. Cyber-Disaster Recovery as a Service (Cyber-DRaaS) identifies cyber-attacks early and enables users to roll back to the last clean replication point in Databarracks' secure DR environment.
Peter Groucutt, managing director at Databarracks, explains: "As a business continuity provider, we have a very unique view of cyber threats. We are called into action when defences have been breached and we need to get a customer back up and operating as quickly as possible. Cyber threats like ransomware and malware are the fastest-growing concern we hear from our customers around business continuity and the single biggest cause for significant recovery.
"Traditional disaster recovery isn't optimised for cyber-attacks. Recovering from ransomware would mean trawling through historic versions of backups in order to find clean data then starting a lengthy recovery process.
"Our new Cyber-DRaaS uses replication to bring a fresh, continuity-led approach to cyber security. It offers a double-edged approach to cyber security, blending aggressive scanning and detection technologies with pro-active continuity planning. This means organisations can safely resolve cyber threats whilst continuing to support their business as usual processes.
"By combining our award-winning DRaaS platform with Trend Micro's Deep Security, we've automated the process of finding the most recent clean replica of an organisation's production systems. The result is that organisations can recover from ransomware or malware infections within the same Recovery Time Objectives offered by our DRaaS platform, which can be as little as 15 minutes, whilst automatically recovering to the most recent Recovery Point."
Groucutt concludes: "Ultimately, cyber threats aren't going anywhere. We understand the increased importance of protection at the perimeter, now it's time for organisations to be proactive about their cyber security and business continuity. Cyber-DRaaS is the perfect first step."
