Clumio Inc. announced the availability of a new more cost effective air gap ransomware protection solution, Clumio SecureVault Lite for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Enterprises today demand data protection solutions which protect application data outside of the organization’s access control domain to ensure business continuity. While the cloud operating model enables customers to innovate at a pace never seen before, it can also result in unbridled usage and additional complexity for the customer to manage. Organizations are continuously faced with the daunting task of doing more with less which can lead to balancing trade-offs between cost savings and meeting key security and compliance objectives.

Today with SecureVault Lite, enterprises are no longer faced with the choice between ransomware protection and cost reduction. Clumio’s continued innovation and integration with AWS native services, has resulted in a 30% savings compared to SecureVault, allowing air gap protection at a similar cost as local in-account snapshots. This makes achieving air gap ransomware protection more affordable, to ensure all data is securely protected, no matter what security challenges arise. Clumio’s rapid recovery capabilities has helped numerous organizations remediate ransomware attacks, avoid paying the ransom, and get backup in running in a matter of hours. Clumio’s intuitive centralized management system with global backup policies seeks to eliminate operational complexities, helps ensure compliance needs are met, and enables a secure yet cost-effective cloud operating model.

“With the increased threat of ransomware and insider attacks to organizations’ business-critical data in the cloud, implementing a cloud data protection strategy that delivers air-gapped, immutable backups has become table-stakes. In fact, cyber insurance companies now assess risk based on whether organizations have saved backups outside of their access domain,” said Poojan Kumar, Chief Executive Officer at Clumio. “However, in their effort to get this done, many organizations were invariably faced with the tough task of selecting between security and reducing cloud spend. With the addition of Clumio SecureVault Lite to our platform, we are eliminating the need to make this choice and truly making air-gapped backups in AWS effortless and accessible to all.”
