Continuity-Protecting Organizations’ Data Through Securing Storage and Backup Systems

The digital age has brought a wide range of opportunities for organizations to expand and grow their operations, but along with these opportunities have come new problems and difficulties. The biggest and toughest challenge organizations are facing nowadays is cybersecurity. Cybercrimes are becoming extremely sophisticated and common with each passing day, and organizations, whether large or small, are exposed to them. Because of this, the significance of cybersecurity support provided by companies like Continuity for various types of businesses in the energy, banking, finance, and telecom sectors can’t be emphasized enough.

The effect of a cyberattack can be long-lasting and severe for an organization. Apart from financial costs caused by data breaches, such as legal fees and lost revenue, organizations also bear reputational costs. Clients may lose faith in an organization if their confidential and sensitive data is compromised. This lack of trust might eventually lead to a decrease in sales and a potential lawsuit. In addition, a cyberattack can also result in the loss of intellectual property, which can negatively impact an organization’s competitive advantage over its competitors. Even though the major objective behind a cyberattack is the financial reward, often, it is carried out to harm the reputation of an organization or individual. Organizations can avoid all these issues by collaborating with a company like Continuity and can better understand their vulnerabilities and eliminate blind spots in their storage and backup systems.

Under the leadership of founder and CEO Gil Hecht and key people like Doron Youngerwood, Gil Asherie, Doron Pinhas, Yaniv Valik, Moshe Zoller, Itay Hershko, and Peter Grabowski, Continuity has come to the forefront to address the issue of cybersecurity. Through iStorageGuard, the company aims to safeguard the critical data of large enterprises. They are popularly known for securing data storage and backup systems to protect organizations’ data and enable data recoverability even if a data breach occurs.

As cybersecurity risks continue to rise rapidly, Continuity has emerged as the most effective and efficient cybersecurity provider that assisted enterprises in safeguarding their data, by protecting their storage and backup systems, both in the cloud and on-premises. The most popular product of the company is StorageGuard which detects vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations, immediately acts upon them, and ensures protection from cyberattacks such as ransomware by following the security standards and industry regulations. This software ensures security by checking the storage and backup systems at three different stages, which include the data plane, the management plane, and the recovery plane.

StorageGuard offers support for numerous storage and backup technologies, such as Network Attached Storage (NAS), storage network switches, storage virtualization systems, data protection appliances, Storage Area Networks (SAN), storage management applications, block storage arrays, and Server-based SAN (Virtual SAN). It also supports all enterprise storage and backup vendors, like Dell, EMC, Azure, Brocade (Broadcom), Veritas (NetBackup), IBM Cohesity, Commvault, Amazon, Hitachi Vantara, Cisco, Infinidat, NetApp, VMware, Rubrik, HPE, Veeam, and Pure Storage.

In addition to StorageGuard, the company provides AvailabilityGuard, which assists organizations in smooth operations by securing their data. It proactively removes single points of failure that affect the overall IT stack before they impact an organization by monitoring IT systems and their different aspects, such as file systems, databases, and storage. The AvailabilityGuard software verifies and measures resiliency KPIs, improves the overall operations of a business, and supports CI/CD processes with automatic resilience validation.

With the help of Continuity’s publicly available whitepapers on their website, professionals can seek guidance and help for ransomware resiliency, securing the backup from ransomware, integrated approach to handling outage risks and cyber threats, and solutions for the organizations to effectively avert a ransomware disaster.

According to Continuity’s 2023 State of Storage Security Report, an enterprise storage device has 15 vulnerabilities out of 6,300 discrete security issues, and among the 15 vulnerabilities, 3 are a high or critical risk. The findings of this report are based on an analysis of enterprise storage systems from Dell EMC, IBM, Hitachi Vantara, Cisco, Broadcom, NetApp, and others.

Continuity has become a leading company in the cybersecurity sector due to its unparalleled and top-quality security systems. Many large banks and financial services firms in the United States can breathe a sigh of relief thanks to StorageGuard provided by Continuity which can withstand ransomware and other cyberattacks trying to steal their data. Apart from daily communication, almost every activity of a person’s daily life can now be performed virtually, so to decrease the number of cyberattacks and criminal activities at an institutional and personal level, every individual or organization should take assistance from cybersecurity companies like Continuity to keep their information safe and secure.
