Adopting zero trust principles and a thorough ransomware strategy is integral to protecting your organisation against all kinds of cyber threats. Continue reading to find out how our partner Commvault can assist your organisation in safeguarding your data today.

What Is Zero Trust?

Operating on the Least Privilege principle, the zero trust security model assumes no user or device is inherently trusted. The IT landscape is micro-segmented and all communication to and between each micro-segment must be continuously validated each time.

Commvault's Zero Trust Strategy

As per its AAA Security framework, Commvault leverages controls such as multi-factor authentication (Authentication), role-defined access to micro-segmented groups of resources (Authorisation), and tracking and auditing (Accounting) helping to limit internal lateral movement. The Security Health Assessment Dashboard makes it simple to apply zero trust AAA controls - providing a single pane of glass for identifying controls, highlighting potential backup risks, and interactive recommendations to apply controls.  

Ransomware Protection by Commvault

Layered Security

By incorporating the five key pillars of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework into its software and policies, the Commvault data protection and management platform consists of five security layers:

  1. Identify
  2. Protect
  3. Monitor
  4. Respond
  5. Recover

In short, Commvault's multi-layered security solution helps protect your data from ransomware attacks. It uses a combination of feature sets, guidelines, best practices, and advanced technologies to detect and prevent attacks, as well as enable fast restores. By keeping your backups safe and accessible, you can minimise the impact of a ransomware attack and get back to business quickly.


With Commvault's built-in locking capabilities, you can complement and layer on top of existing security controls such as WORM, object lock, or snapshot-supported hardware - without the need for specialist hardware of cloud storage accounts. 

Cyber Deception Technology

Protective defence technology is an integral component of a multi-layered strategy. Metallic ThreatWise is a game-changing service that uses cyber deception to lure and trap attackers, helping to identify and block unauthorised access to your systems. Even the stealthiest zero-day attacks that would typically evade conventional detection technology and controls can be neutralised before they cause harm.
