Grazed from Rubrik

Rubrik, the Cloud Data Management company, announced the general availability of Polaris Radar, the latest data management application built on the Polaris SaaS platform.

Ransomware attacks are intensifying in scale and sophistication, and the perpetrators are better at evading countermeasures. A recent NTT Security survey revealed that ransomware attacks rose 350 percent in 2017 over the previous year. According to a survey conducted by endpoint protection provider Barkly, 71 percent of organizations were infected by ransomware after it successfully bypassed their prevention controls.
