Reduce guesswork. Automate dormant threat detection and clean file recovery.
Commvault PR 2023E includes our new Threat Scan product’s general availability (GA), which ensures IT admins can be confident that their backup data is clean, safe, and recoverable.
Ransomware threats are something we’ve all heard of, and we know how devastating they can be for organizations. Starting with the initial access, usually through phishing, stolen credentials, or an exploit. The threat then moves laterally, before the big impact – data destruction, encryption, and exfiltration.
On average, a threats dwell time in an environment is around 20-52 days1, depending on how advanced the organization’s defenses are. But here’s the catch: backups happen all the time, and threats can lurk within them before they’re even discovered. This means that infected backups put data recovery at risk. Not only does it take longer to get clean data back, but there’s also the risk of re-infection.
That’s where Commvault Threat Scan comes in; IT admins can take control and defend their backup data by proactively identifying malware threats to avoid reinfection during recovery. Threat Scan automatically analyzes backup data to find encrypted or corrupted files, allowing users to recover trusted versions of their data quickly. Suspected threats can be isolated and quarantined, enabling further analysis by forensic teams in a secure environment.
Unify Data Protection and Security
Building on Commvault’s existing SIEM connector, PR2023E introduces bidirectional integration support for Microsoft Sentinel and Palo Alto XSOAR to improve collaboration and reduce incident response time with automated orchestration and combined insights.
SecOps teams face the constant challenge of handling a high volume of security events, requiring them to adopt automation to effectively respond to and minimize cyber threats. While specific tools are used to gather security events, logs, and alerts, there is a significant gap as these tools fail to collect important information from data protection platforms. This lack of visibility leaves SecOps teams with a blind spot in their overall defense.
Our latest integration brings together the power and visibility of data protection and security platforms, enhancing internal collaboration and overall security posture. Our runbooks make it easy to automate actions out of the box through a secure connection. No more working in silos! SecOps and ITOps can now join forces to tackle security incidents and automate actions like revoking access, disabling data aging, or other data policies.
