Blockchain for Ransomware Protection

July 18, 2017

There’s been a lot of buzz about blockchain and how it plays in our digital world.  Blockchain, originally devised for the digital currency Bitcoin, is getting a “bad rap” because bitcoins are the chosen currency by cybercriminals in ransomware attacks.  The underlying technology that gives blockchain a variety of uses is the ability to allow digital information to be distributed, but not copied.  Two things that make blockchain such a strong technology is that it cannot be controlled by any single entity and it has no single point of failure.

The two strong points of blockchain are also the strengths of Nexsan Unity Active Archive.  Unity Active Archive stores and protects data to keep organizations safe and allows for recovery in just minutes from any type of ransomware attack, silent data corruption or accidentally lost data.  If you’d like to learn more, I recommend checking out the blog by DCIG Blockchain Technology Being Used to Protect Data as Opposed to Holding it Ransom  and the white paper Ransomware Protection with Unity Active Archive.
