RDX RansomBlock

Ransomware has emerged as the most dangerous cyber threat for organizations. This video demonstrates how RDX is protecting businesses and professional user's data. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out in an email attachment or download link, using a Trojan that is disguised as a legitimate file like invoices, order confirmations, or notifications or threaten your data through infected websites and infect your computer and all other computers on the same network.

That means anybody can end up being infected by a Ransomware, as it is very likely that the first attack will bypass most security software because of an update that needs to be developed afterward.

Regular backups are mandatory but not sufficient

A working backup strategy and implementation are very crucial to protect data against any Virus, Worm, or Ransomware attack. But those can also affect backup files even if they are stored on other systems. As soon as the ransomware has infected a computer, it can spread amongst other systems through the network. Therefore, backups to NAS systems or other computers are threatened as well.

RansomBlock - Giving peace of mind

RansomBlock performs a validation check each time a write operation tries to access the RDX media. In case of a virus or ransomware attack or unauthorized access, RansomBlock will deny this operation and protect the data stored on RDX media from being infected.

RDX RansomBlock is a choosable feature of the rdxLOCK software. The RansomBlock functionality sets all data on the RDX WORM media into a read-only mode. Besides, it allows writing operations to RDX media for granted applications and processes similar to a personal FireWall. This ensures that viruses and ransomware attacks cannot threaten backup data. Backup applications can use RDX WORM media like a regular RDX backup target. RDX WORM supports you in archiving data, which have to meet regulatory compliance requirements like SOX, HIPAA, or others.
