MARLBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CloudWavethe largest independent provider of healthcare cloud software hosting and managed services, today announced its new OpSus Safe offer. Data is growing exponentially and is more critical than ever to powering healthcare. OpSus Vault is designed to protect a healthcare organization’s valuable data backups from increasingly effective ransomware and malicious insider threats by creating a secure, offline, and immutable storage location.
In the case of ransomware and other threats, a hospital’s existing backups are often infected along with the main production environment. Additionally, there has been an increase in malicious actors targeting backup infrastructure to further disrupt operations. OpSus Vault helps create an immutable backup consisting of a self-contained copy with separate security protocols, locked down to prevent encryption, modifications and deletions.
This immutable storage location keeps the additional protected copy separate from the rest of the data storage and computing environment, especially the domain structure, for an additional layer of assurance. OpSus Vault deploys a secure and isolated cloud storage location that receives a backup set from an additional scheduled backup job. The cloud location then replicates a copy of its content stored in a secure vault located on a separate domain with an immutable storage policy. While this immutability policy is in effect, modification and deletion of data is not permitted, and access is prohibited.
Therefore, if a security incident renders a healthcare organization’s normal backup sets unusable, CloudWave will make available a recent copy of the immutable backup. Therefore, OpSus Vault’s immutable backup can be restored much faster than bypassing corrupted primary and secondary copies.
“Most organizations know how to design a backup system to store multiple copies on different media with at least one remote backup set, but those backups can still be deleted if the proper credentials are compromised,” said Matt Donahue. , CTO of CloudWave. . “By isolating backups to a separate domain and enforcing an immutability policy, OpSus Vault adds additional layers of protection against these types of threats.”
