The new Superna Data Security Edition for Qumulo data storage software detects ransomware threats instantly to help security teams stop attacks before data is permanently lost. Built with Ransomware Defender from Superna data security and cyberstorage developer, it automates real-time detection of malicious behaviours, false-positives and other events consistent with ransomware access patterns for SMBs and network file system files.
Analysts report that ransomware attacks more than tripled year-over-year from 2022 to 2023. “The problem with existing ransomware solutions is that they focus only on the protect and recover aspects, leaving customers with costly, disruptive recovery times,” said Brandon Whitelaw, VP Strategic Partnerships at Qumulo. “Because Superna Ransomware Defender for Qumulo operates at the data layer, it can detect and block ransomware attacks before they proceed beyond the point of no return.”
Superna Data Security Edition for Qumulo detects suspicious behaviour at the onset, in the storage layer where data resides and where malicious files may be dropped, often referred to as burrowing. When this occurs at the right time and location, it can result in the replication of ransomware across the storage system and network. Superna ransomware detection cuts access immediately and automates access lockout.
Superna’s native integrations with SIEM (security information and event management) and SOAR (security orchestration, automation and response) systems and ticketing platforms automatically alerts administrators and other users involved in incident response. It makes the required information available to accurately prioritise the incident.
Simplifying Data Security
“Superna’s goal is to simplify data security by starting with data layer security, augmenting that with operational simplicity, and moving the security incident root cause directly to the monitoring tool security operations teams already use. Superna’s native integrations with security tools like Palo Alto Networks, ServiceNow, SentinelOne, Splunk, Rapid7 and others avoids the need to train security teams on storage layer security,” Andrew MacKay, Chief Technology and Strategy Officer at Superna.
As well as ransomware defense, the functionality Superna Data Security Edition for Qumulo protects against other untrusted or malicious data behaviours at the storage layer through its ability to detect burrowing, identify malicious user activity and carry out post-breach analysis for compliance and forensics
The Superna Data Security Edition takes a whole-system approach for cybersecurity at the storage layer that identifies, protects, detects, responds and recovers in accordance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework.
Superna tracks and reports on file access history prior to the attack. This means file- or object-level recovery happens in minutes or seconds, instead of traditional backup recovery, which requires hours or days, and results in more effective incident analysis and more accurate incident response. qumulo.com
