FileCloud, a cloud-agnostic file sharing solutions platform, has announced its FileCloud Breach Intercept solution. The latest version of FileCloud offers advanced ransomware protection to help customers handle every phase of a cyberattack: prevention, detection and recovery.
Global ransomware damage costs are expected to total more than $5 billion in 2017, compared to $325 million in 2015.
FileCloud’s decentralized private cloud would reduce a company’s exposure to potential attacks. FileCloud is deployed by company’s including Fortune 500 and Global 2000 firms, and delivered across 90 countries across the globe.
“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.”
Cyberdefense via Customization
The best defense against a phishing attack is to make sure your employees can differentiate genuine communication from malicious spoofing, according to FileCloud. Hackers can easily spoof email from public SaaS products, which have a standardized, easily falsifiable format.
FileCloud offers branding and customization tools, allowing customers to set own policies, and design their own emails and broadcast alerts. Customized emails and UX significantly would 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, one 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.
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 server backup would help 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.
