Ransomware strikes fear in the hearts of IT professionals. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The fact is ransomware is far from invincible. During Veritas Solution Day, you will learn what it takes to neutralize the threat and impact of ransomware on your organization. It’s time to turn the tables on ransomware and start talking about what it is afraid of—a multi-layered, flexible, unified defense.

We will cover a range of important topics, including:

  • Ransomware Resiliency—how to ensure your data is always protected, immutable, and recoverable.
  • Protect, Detect, and Recover Best Practices—why it matters to standardize your data protection on a single platform.
  • The Anatomy of a Ransomware Attack—hear how a global Veritas customer minimized disruption and avoided paying a ransom.

In addition to insightful presentations, we’ll also be providing a technical deep dive into the core ransomware capabilities of NetBackup.

Welcome to join us virtually!
