Cisco Introduces Automated Ransomware Recovery Solution for Enhanced Cybersecurity


In recent times, the rising threat of ransomware attacks has caused significant financial losses and severe disruptions to businesses. As companies struggle to recover from ransom payments, data recovery, and reputational damage, the need for effective solutions has become more pressing than ever. In response to this challenge, Cisco has unveiled an innovative automated ransomware recovery feature exclusively for its Extended Detection and Response (XDR) system customers.

According to a recent press release from Cisco, this new feature integration is made possible through a collaboration with Cohesity’s DataHawk and DataProtect plans, which are specifically designed to safeguard virtual machines and enterprise workloads from infections.

Security analysts believe that the Cohesity ransomware feature, available within the XDR platform, empowers Security Operations Center (SOC) teams to rapidly detect, snapshot, and recover critical business data at the very first sign of a ransomware infection. This capability enables enterprises to protect their high-value IT environments from the increasingly prevalent double and triple extortion cyber threats.

For those unfamiliar with XDR services, Cisco’s platform seamlessly combines its own robust security features with a wide array of third-party security products. These include tools for incident analysis, threat remediation, response automation, and network access control, all accessible through user-friendly cloud-based interfaces. The XDR system leverages data from six key telemetry sources, namely endpoints, network, firewall, email, identity, and DNS, to provide comprehensive and proactive cybersecurity.

In addition to its XDR offerings, Cisco has made strides in integrating with other leading infrastructure networks and enterprise data backup and recovery plans. By doing so, the company enhances in-house business continuity solutions with automated ransomware recovery capabilities.

With Cisco’s cutting-edge automated ransomware recovery solution, businesses can fortify their cybersecurity defenses and mitigate the damaging consequences of ransomware attacks. By acting swiftly and decisively in the face of cyber threats, companies can safeguard their financial assets and protect their hard-earned reputation in the market.
