Continuity, a leading provider of cyber resilience solutions today announced its partnership with Bulwark Distribution FZCO. Together, the two companies are dedicated to securing organisations’ storage and backup systems, to withstand ransomware and other cyberattacks.
The partnership is based on Continuity’s StorageGuard, a security posture management solution that will enable Bulwark’s channel partners and system integrators across United Arab Emirates and other GCC countries & the Indian sub-continent regions, to automatically detect, prioritise and remediate vulnerabilities and security misconfigurations in their clients’ storage and backup systems. This will help them protect their data, and ensure recoverability.
Enterprise storage and backup systems are becoming a growing target for ransomware. Cybercriminals realise that an attack on a single storage or backup system is the biggest determining factor to show if an organisation will pay the ransom.
According to the Gartner Report: Hype Cycle for Storage and Data Protection Technologies, 2022, “network-attached storage (NAS) and scale-out file system storage provides inadequate protection from malicious deletion or encryption of data. Cyberstorage provides active defence against cyber attack on unstructured data”.
“Ransomware has pushed storage, backup and data recovery back onto the corporate agenda”, said Gil Hecht, CEO of Continuity.
“We are thrilled to partner with Bulwark to help provide greater security confidence for their partners, by eliminating security risks across their clients’ data storage & backup systems”, Hecht said.
“StorageGuard is an exciting innovation that fills a gap for our customers. For the first time, our partners can help their clients harden their storage and backup systems, to improve cyber resiliency and data protection. Organisations will be able to automatically detect all security risks, and prioritise them in order of urgency and business impact”, said Jose Menacherry, Managing Director at Bulwark Technologies.
