Introducing Deep Instinct Prevention for Storage

How we’re protecting organizations’ most valuable asset

As artificial intelligence (AI) transforms nearly every industry, it’s also changing how cybercriminals approach their work.

Threats have steadily become more sophisticated and commonplace, and fresh avenues for attacks are becoming more accessible for organized cybercrime. AI is arming hackers, nation-state actors, and fraudsters with means to carry out complex and calculated attacks faster, more efficiently, and more easily than ever before.

All of this is occurring with more data than ever before. The average large enterprise has between seven and 17 petabytes of data stored in hybrid, cloud, or on-prem databases. With more data available – and vulnerable – and with AI-enabled tools that help cybercriminals create malware and malicious code, it’s more critical than ever for organizations to protect stored data.

Breaches can cost millions of dollars to remediate, erode corporate reputation, send share prices tumbling, and anger customers. For enterprises to effectively safeguard critical data, preventing malicious files from landing in their storage is imperative. In an ever-evolving, AI-driven digital landscape, Deep Instinct can protect organizations and the integrity of their data.

Introducing Deep Instinct Prevention for Storage

Traditional storage solutions – whether in cloud environments or through network attached storage (NAS) vendors – focus on storage, not protection. While these solutions are successful at housing data, they lack the adequate protection necessary to protect in an increasingly sophisticated threat landscape. The legacy tools many organizations implement to supplement this lack of protection react to threats only once they’re in the environment, or interrupt workflows by sanitizing essential files into flat copies. And the tools that claim to be AI or machine learning (ML)-driven only detect 60 percent of unknown attacks post-execution, allowing a zero-day threat or new malware variant time to execute and exhibit known bad behaviors before being caught. They also require human tuning and more time investment from security and IT teams. Organizations that take data protection seriously must leverage tools that actually protect their data. Deep learning (DL) is the solution.

Deep Instinct Prevention for Storage (DPS) – part of our Deep Instinct Prevention Platform – applies a prevention-first approach to storage protection, stopping ransomware, known and unknown threats, and malware from reaching data and executing within the environment, wherever data is stored. Powered by Deep Instinct’s unique DL framework, DPS seamlessly integrates into NAS, hybrid, or public cloud environments while delivering unparalleled efficacy, accuracy, and enterprise-grade scalability. DPS provides proactive prevention that is scalable, saves time, offers ongoing security to comply with regulations, and quickly thwarts cyberthreats before they impact companies’ bottom line.

With DPS, organizations can achieve the following:

  • Improve SOC operations and lower TCO: DPS enables teams to reliably and quickly scan millions of documents per day, taking <20 milliseconds per file – 750x faster than the fastest known ransomware can encrypt. It also helps teams confidently assess potential threats with a false positive rate of <0.1% and >99% efficacy in preventing unknown threats.
  • Manage solutions and maintain compliance: DPS natively integrates with storage infrastructure, including Dell CAVA and NetApp Vscan, and integration with SIEM and SOAR.
  • Streamline threat analysis: DPS automatically logs all file scans and generates detailed events for each malicious file, which are sent directly to the management console. Teams can control and manage remediation actions within storage, including quarantine or deletion of malicious files, as well as restore from quarantine, if needed. It also offers security status at-a-glance with single console management across all Deep Instinct products.
  • Ensure data privacy: Data never leaves an organization’s environment. They stay compliant with ensured data privacy and logs from every file scanned.

As attacks increase in volume and velocity and emerging technologies like AI expand the threat landscape, a reactive or incomplete approach to data security is no longer sufficient. Organizations must continually scan data to account for the most advanced phishing, malware, and ransomware attacks. Only DL can offer that.
