Ransomware attacks are becoming increasingly common in today's digital world, presenting a frequent and expensive risk to businesses everywhere. In fact, industry sources predict that the global damage caused by ransomware could cost up to $265 billion by 20311. While organizations have recognized the risks, there's still a gap in understanding where current security measures are today, and where they should be.

With its built-in data protection capabilities and solution portfolio, including Pure SafeMode™ on FlashArray and FlashBlade, Pure FlashRecover™ Powered by Cohesity®, launched one year ago, and Portworx PX-Backup, Pure helps organizations close this security gap, enabling global businesses to safeguard their data against loss, corruption, and growing cybersecurity threats.

"Implementing a meaningful data protection strategy, taking a before, during, and after approach to planning, is vital to running a successful business today. While having the proper precautions in place to prevent an attack is essential, it's equally as critical that organizations plan for recovery. Pure's solutions are uniquely positioned to help customers rapidly restore data, at scale, in order to avoid business continuity disruptions and negative financial impact." -- Dr. Ratinder Paul Singh Ahuja, CTO, Security, Pure Storage
