Infinidat delivers InfiniSafe® Cyber Detection

Earlier this year we announced that Inifinidat was expanding its enterprise cyber storage resilience and recovery capabilities by adding a powerful component to our industry acclaimed InfiniSafe® technology, InfiniSafe Cyber Detection. In May 2023, we released InfiniSafe Cyber Detection to the market! This optional component of our core InfiniSafe cyber security solution provides our customers with critical added functionality to help secure, understand, and be able to quickly recover any protected data that may be compromised by a ransomware or malware attack. Our announcement blog from May 2023 is here.

Given the importance of cyber security and that it’s one of the top two most important concerns of the CEOs of the Fortune 500 companies, it is important to let everyone know that Infinidat has delivered on its promise. We are not standing still! This is just the next step in helping you avoid a costly cybersecurity situation.

InfiniSafe Cyber Detection uses powerful machine learning (ML) technology, trained on 10’s of millions of compromised datasets. All this learning and capability means you have the ability to scan your primary storage datasets from InfiniSafe’s immutable snapshots. We have built an orchestrator that comes with the scanning engine to make this process secure, easy, and repeatable. But, most importantly, it is accurate. All this technology and ML leverages over two hundred (200) data points to determine if your data has been compromised or not and can be identified as “known good”. The results of those data scans have proven to be extremely accurate, and InfiniSafe Cyber Detection has 99.5% accuracy rate. Scanning results from tools that are not accurate make investments in those tools useless because it is just too difficult to sort out the good scans from the bad. Not the case with InfiniSafe Cyber Detection - you get detailed reports and logs of exactly what was found and where.

What about new vulnerabilities and variants? That’s a very valid concern and why again all the ML and testing we do is so important. As new variants appear, yes they are likely to be different, but they do carry many of the same characteristics as those that appeared before and, thus, are identified appropriately to be looked at by your forensic team. That is where all the automated learning done in secure labs makes a big difference.

As we move ahead into 2024, we will continue to expand the functionality of InfinSafe Cyber Detection with updates and new capabilities specifically around VMware. So, stay tuned and contact your Infinidat sales and technical teams or your Infinidat channel partner to learn more about how to make InfiniSafe Cyber Detection part of your critical cyber resilience capabilities, to thwart ransomware and malware attacks.
