CTERA Ransom Protect propels company into leadership position
New York, NY —August 23, 2023 — CTERA today announced it has been named a Leader and a Fast Mover in the GigaOm 2023 Sonar Report for File-Based Primary Storage Ransomware Protection.

CTERA’s comprehensive ransomware and mitigation technology built into the Enterprise File Services Platform includes CTERA Ransom Protect, a state-of-the-art AI ransomware protection mechanism that identifies and stops ransomware attacks in real time. If a ransomware attack occurs within an organization, organizations can instantly recover the ‘locked’ data from immutable snapshots.

“Our Sonar Reports analyze emerging technology trends and sectors and provide the benefits as well as risks posed by the early adoption of bleeding edge solutions,” said Arjan Timmerman and Max Mortillaro, analysts at GigaOm. “This year, CTERA significantly improved its posture in cyber resiliency thanks to CTERA Ransom Protect, an AI-based proactive detection engine that further strengthens CTERA’s already comprehensive cyber resiliency feature set. As a result, CTERA was identified as a ‘Leader’ and ‘Fast Mover’ thanks to its commitment to innovation and its delivery pace.”
The GigaOm Sonar notes: “By implementing ransomware protection on primary storage systems, storage vendors enable organizations to strengthen their security posture with proactive identification and mitigation. The most advanced ransomware protection primary storage solutions ensure that primary data is minimally impacted by ransomware attacks, guaranteeing a normal flow of business operations while mitigating the consequences of financial, regulatory, and reputational impact. Furthermore, ransomware protection on primary storage systems—and its maturity—allows storage vendors to differentiate against their competition and create new business opportunities.”
