ExaGrid’s security features insulate critical backup data from malicious attacks

Westborough, Mass., October 25, 2018 – /BackupReview.info/ — ExaGrid’s hyper-converged secondary storage for backup system was put to the ultimate test by Cheshire Medical Center, which had selected ExaGrid for backup protection and data loss prevention.

Cheshire Medical Center is an affiliate of the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health system. The medical center is located in the U.S. in the state of New Hampshire and provides primary care, specialty medicine, surgical services, and acute inpatient care.

After the medical center installed ExaGrid as its backup target for its 98% virtualized IT environment, Scott Tilton, system administrator, experienced firsthand the disaster recovery protection that ExaGrid provides when a couple of the center’s larger servers were infected with a virus. “The data was completely restored from the ExaGrid system with zero data loss and quickly put into a holding location before we were even able to fix the virus itself. As soon as we had the virus cleared, we moved the restored data to the correct location, which was a huge time saver. In the past, we would have spent all night restoring data, but thanks to ExaGrid, that wasn’t necessary—it’s one fast system!”

Malicious malware threats are top-of-mind concerns for IT staff, particularly for those charged with safeguarding confidential information. It is critical to have backups insulated from such threats since backups may be the last line of defense. “These days, with all of the virus attacks, there is so much to worry about—some hospitals have even had to pay a ransom to get their data back! Fortunately, that’s not something I’ve had to lose sleep over. ExaGrid’s built-in security features limit share access to only the device that’s backing up to it. Infections tend to be spread from workstations or PCs, but because ExaGrid only allows for very specific pre-defined connections, viruses can’t spread into the backup system,” said Tilton.
