It is well-known that traditional applications are widely susceptible to ransomware attacks, and Kubernetes environments are no different. In 2020 alone, there were 304 million ransomware attacks worldwide — a 62% increase from 2019 with the average amount of ransom demanded over a whopping 178,000$
In the last few years, Kubernetes has been adopted by a majority of companies as their default container orchestration tool. Most enterprises are now comfortable with running applications and services in the cloud. However, Kubernetes applications are still at risk of becoming vulnerable to attacks.
This vulnerability in applications can be due to any of theses following reasons:
On top of all this, there are not many solutions readily available providing timely alerts of such attacks on your Kubernetes environment.
Powered bySaaS-based automation suite VPC+, Wanclouds’ makes backups immutable as well as monitors Kubernetes deployments for attempted ransomware attacks thus improving the recovery point objective in the face of escalating threats. Wanclouds utilizes this approach to proactively detect the systems for any integrity violations, leading to improved response time, reduction of data loss, isolation of infected infrastructure, and the ability to restore the latest backup rapidly. This is a vast improvement upon legacy backup and disaster recovery approaches. Businesses often only become aware of a breach when the attacker encrypts their network, and the company is forced to restore and recover from a much older backup.
helps protect your environments from attacks by giving you the ability to create backups, and provide you timely alerts on potential ransomware attacks thus increasing your response time and reducing your time to recovery.
Below are some highlights of the offering:
This early detection prevents the backups from being overwritten due to the user's backup rotation policy thus allowing the user to isolate the affected system and quickly restore from recent backup avoiding further data loss.
