Advanced Ransomware Protection Intercepts Threats Targeting Sensitive Enterprise Data

AUSTIN, TX – October 17, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ — FileCloud, the cloud-agnostic EFSS platform, today announced FileCloud Breach Intercept. The newest version of FileCloud offers advanced ransomware protection to help customers handle every phase of a cyberattack: prevention, detection and recovery.

FileCloud is deployed across 90 countries and has more than 100 VARs and Managed Service Providers across the world. Deployed by Fortune 500 and Global 2000 firms, including the world’s leading law firms, government organizations, science and research organizations and world-class universities, FileCloud offers a set of unique features that help organizations build effective anti-ransomware strategies.

Global ransomware damage costs are expected to total more than $5 billion dollars in 2017, compared to $325 million dollars in 2015. Ransomware is growing at an estimated yearly rate of 350 percent with business enterprises becoming the priority target for hackers. Enterprise File Sharing and Sync (EFSS) solutions have seen an increase in ransomware attacks with 40 percent of spam emails containing links to ransomware. Whereas public cloud EFSS solutions such as Box and Dropbox offer centralized targets for ransomware attacks, FileCloud’s decentralized private cloud reduces your company’s exposure to potential attacks.

“Anyone with access to a computer is a potential threat, and the cloud their personal armory,” said Venkat Ramasamy, COO at FileCloud. “Why rummage through hundreds of houses when you can rob a bank? Hackers target centralized storage such as Dropbox or Box rather than self-hosted FileCloud solutions. The freedom to choose the cloud platform that best meets the unique dynamics of each business is our line in the sand of competitive differentiation.”

Breach Intercept: Cyberdefense via customization
The best defense against a phishing attack is to make sure your employees can differentiate genuine communication from malicious spoofing. Hackers can easily spoof email from public SaaS products, which have a standardized, easily falsifiable format. FileCloud offers unparalleled branding and customization tools, allowing you to set your own policies, and design your own emails and broadcast alerts. Customized emails and UX significantly reduce spoofing risk as hackers can’t run a mass spoofing unless they have an exact copy of an email from one of your employees.

Granular controlled folder access
With FileCloud Breach Intercept, you can set different levels of access between top-level folders and sub-folders. Administrators can set read/write/delete/share permissions for any user at any folder level, and permissions are not necessarily inherited according to folder structure, limiting propagation.

Real-time content / behavior heuristic engine
State-of-the-industry heuristic analysis works to detect threats in real time and suspicious content and user activity will activate security protocols and prevent ransomware from taking hold. For example, if FileCloud detects a file posing as a Word document, the system halts the upload and sends an alert to the administrator, preventing propagation of an attack.

Unlimited versioning and backup to rollback
Unlimited versioning and server backup helps companies recover from any data loss accident, including ransomware. FileCloud can roll back not only employee files but also entire server files to any specific date and time before the attack.
