Ransomware protection and recovery
You’ve seen the headlines – organizations with their data held hostage and payouts to perpetrators to restore it. With new strains of ransomware and other malware threats on the rise, your enterprise and customer data is continually at risk despite the steps you have taken.

Powerful capabilities to secure your data
Commvault solutions are built on responsiveness, innovation, and rapid execution to stay ahead of ransomware and emerging threats.
Don’t be caught with a hole in your ransomware protection
Like the back of your pants, how do you know if you have holes in your ransomware protection and recovery? Other data protection products make claims about having immutability, or air gap, or data isolation. But having only one or two data protection features does not provide the comprehensive coverage you require. Don’t be caught with your data exposed with an inferior product.
Leading analyst firms have highlighted Commvault for its innovation and differentiation in ransomware protection and recovery. And Commvault was singled out for allowing users to validate backup copies by performing isolated recoveries of data to a networkless VM environment for verification. Commvault has your back by helping you check for holes in your backups. Read more
