Nasuni Debuts Targeted Restore for Granular Threat Detection and Recovery

Nasuni Corporation, a provider of file data services, is announcing a new feature integrated with the Nasuni Ransomware Protection Service that enriches the proactive detection and recovery of ransomware attacks. Dubbed targeted restore, users can now enact precise restores of impacted files in seconds, streamlining and improving the investigation and recovery process. Additionally, Nasuni is announcing a new integration with Microsoft Sentinel, which brings Nasuni users the automated capture of threat activity paired with robust analysis and monitoring.

Nasuni offers solutions that tackle the growing phenomenon of distributed file share data in the modern enterprise. While many backup services offered today are ill-equipped to handle Network Attached Storage (NAS) workloads, the Nasuni File Data Platform—combined with the Nasuni Ransomware Protection add-on service—greatly decreases the mean time to recovery (MTTR) for NAS, according to the company.

With the new addition of targeted restore, the capability optimizes several areas of the recovery and restore process. Not only does targeted restore mitigate the impact of a ransomware attack, it enables the precise recovery of only the encrypted files identified in the incident. This granular approach to recovery ultimately reduces the risk of any threat against file shares impacting business operations.

Targeted restore also allows organizations to automatically save critical details associated with the impacted files, capturing the last instance of clean data. Regarding IT and SecOps, this new capability introduces enhanced manageability and a reduction in administration tasks through fully documented attack information. 

On top of the myriad of benefits that targeted restore offers, Nasuni’s Rapid Recovery process is simple to set up, requiring only a few clicks.

“With the new targeted restore feature, coupled with the rapid recovery capabilities of the Nasuni File Data Platform, enterprises can get back to business after attacks in minutes, not days,” said David Grant, president at Nasuni. “After all, the very heart of our business is the immediate recovery of data. We can ensure business continuity and collaboration across the globe instantaneously. From American Standard to Western Digital to PwC, the largest organizations across 70 countries trust Nasuni to modernize file infrastructure, de-risk today’s ever-present ransomware threat, and alleviate hybrid working file-sharing challenges.”

News of targeted restore is accompanied by Nasuni’s integration with Microsoft Sentinel, a scalable, cloud native SIEM and security orchestration, automation, and response (SOAR) solution. This integration enables the automation of threat activity detection within Nasuni’s platform, accelerating response time.

On the Microsoft Sentinel front, Microsoft Log Analytics Workspace collects and shares Nasuni event and audit logs to any Nasuni distributed edge device—encouraging constant, thorough monitoring from within the Sentinel platform.

“By integrating Microsoft Sentinel with Nasuni’s cloud-native ransomware protection, Nasuni events are automatically captured, consolidated, and sent to Microsoft Sentinel for analysis, providing SecOps teams with better protection for the vast amount of data in their company file shares,” said Eric Burkholder, senior program manager for Microsoft Sentinel growth and ecosystem at Microsoft.
