VNQ Systems and Rubrik are hosting an interactive free webinar discussion on how to ensure your company is not on the next ransomware attack headline, on Thursday, 7 October 2021, from 3pm-4:30pm (CAT).

Rubrik is a cloud data management company based in Palo Alto, California, United States, founded in December 2013 and rated as a top vendor by Gartner.

As a certified partner of Rubrik, VNQ Systems has also assisted one of South Africa’s largest financial services organisations with its data management for the past few years.

No matter how thick your firewalls are, the bad guys are still getting through. And when ransomware strikes, you either pay the ransom or attempt to recover. According to Gartner, 75% of successful ransomware attacks hit companies with up-to-date antivirus. Some organisations pay the ransom because they trust in their insurance. But most organisations want to recover, so they don’t let the bad guys win.

In the last few months, we’ve seen a few major South African companies suffer from ransomware attacks, and most reactions have been reactive rather than proactive. Many ransomware attacks target backup; that’s why it’s vital to ensure your company’s backups are 100% protected and resilient.

Rubrik has pioneered modernisation of the backup and recovery space across on-premises and multiclouds. This capability is extended to utilise the backup data for business purposes.

Here’s what to expect from the discussion:

  • An introduction to Rubrik;
  • A live demo;
  • Corporate governance and the responsibility of the Board to account for cyber security; and
  • Rubrik to accelerate joint solutions and deliver cyber resiliency for customers with Microsoft equity investment.
