The Security Framework
Reduce cybersecurity risk and ensure data availability through our multilayered security framework and benefit from:
AAA Framework protects who has access and what they have access to while monitoring events and activities for proper security. Identifying business-critical and sensitive data prior to a ransomware attack is crucial in reducing the attack surface and proactively preventing data breaches.
Single pane of glass to centrally monitor, manage, and adjust the security levels and parameters.
Protect against changes from inside and outside the backup solution. Restore unchanged and unmodified backup data anytime.
Isolate and segment storage targets from public networks to mitigate lateral moving threats.
Data is encrypted at the source, in-flight, and at rest using industry-standard protocols with multiple key management and interoperability options.
Metallic® Recovery Reserve™ cloud storage makes it simple to adopt cloud storage and ease digital transformation securely.
Use machine learning, artificial intelligence, and honeypots to monitor and detect suspicious or unusual activity for more significant insights and quicker time to recovery.
Coordinate interactive responses and actions using APIs, workflows, and integrations with external orchestration platforms.
Ensure a clean and secure recovery by surgically deleting suspicious files, unnecessary files, or creating an isolated recovery.
Minimize lost revenue with fast, flexible cloud, virtual, and on-premises recovery options.
