CTERA’s Ransom Protect: A Journey Towards a Safer Digital Future

As the CTO of CTERA and someone who has been with the company since day one, I couldn’t be more proud to witness our remarkable journey unfold. Looking back over the last 15 years, our mission has been clear – to provide a cyber-resilient, globally available repository for files. As we celebrate this milestone, I’m thrilled to present our latest breakthrough – CTERA Ransom Protect.

In a world where technology is evolving at a rapid pace, cyber threats are also escalating in their sophistication. It’s a daunting fact: ransomware attacks are becoming an alarming security concern, causing billions in financial and reputational damages annually. Traditional endpoint-based antivirus and EDR solutions are gradually proving inadequate against the ever-evolving landscape of zero-day cyber threats. But here at CTERA, we refuse to be passive bystanders. We believe in active innovation to stay ahead of these evolving threats.

In the new CTERA Ransom Protect, we have harnessed the power of Artificial Intelligence to counter the rapidly mutating menace of ransomware attacks. Ransom Protect is no ordinary defense mechanism – it’s an advanced ransomware protection engine integrated into the CTERA global file system. This breakthrough brings together early threat detection, immediate threat response, and rapid recovery. Best of all, it achieves this without third-party add-ons or compromising system performance. The AI and machine learning algorithms at its heart, trained on an extensive dataset of attack flows, can detect and block ransomware attacks in seconds.

AI is the superstar in the cybersecurity world and we are unleashing its potential. We’ve trained our AI and machine learning algorithms on an extensive dataset of attack flows. The result? A system capable of identifying and blocking ransomware attacks within mere seconds! It’s like having an omnipresent guard, vigilantly scanning for suspicious user behavior.

Key features of CTERA Ransom Protect include:

  • Real-time AI Detection: Identifies behavioral anomalies suggesting fraudulent file activity and blocks the offending users within seconds.
  • Incident Management: Includes an incident management dashboard to monitor ongoing attacks in real-time. Retains comprehensive incident evidence and logs securely for post-attack forensics.
  • Instant Recovery: Works in tandem with CTERA’s global filesystem for near-instant recovery of any affected files. Snapshots are securely stored in an air-gapped, immutable cloud object storage.
  • Independence from Signature Updates: Can detect zero-day threats without reliance on traditional signature update services.
  • One-Click Deployment: Can be activated with a single click as a standard feature in CTERA Edge Filer, simplifying the deployment process.

I strongly encourage you to watch our short demo video, embedded below. It provides a hands-on look at Ransom Protect’s advanced capabilities, illustrating just how effectively it can safeguard your digital assets.


Reflecting on our journey thus far, I am filled with pride. CTERA Ransom Protect is not just a new feature —it’s a testament to our commitment to always provide businesses with the most advanced defenses against cyber threats. It embodies our mission to continually redefine cybersecurity norms and to stay at the forefront of technology.
