ProphetStor DR Prophet® Safeguards Enterprises against Ransomware with Assured Recovery and Enhanced Protection Policy

MILPITAS, CA, May 22, 2017 – ProphetStor Data Services, Inc., the leader in software-defined storage (SDS) and data services solutions, today announced it has technologically advanced and reliable first-hand data protection solution at combating ransomware. The ProphetStor DR Prophet® Software-Defined Data Protection is a powerful anti-ransomware software with the ability to recover any file, folder, disk and even entire servers from being hijacked or stolen and restore them to the original state.

Nowhere is it more true that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” than in the case of Ransomware. It’s more prudent to head off a disaster beforehand than to deal with it after it occurs. ProphetStor DR Prophet® is irreplaceable because it can provide Assured Recovery and Enhanced Protection Policy to safeguard against ransomware, which means that customers can achieve full server recovery up to the last snapshot stored within minutes.

“ProphetStor’s strategic business proposition to customers is to take a close look at their data protection and disaster recovery practices for current and transitioning environments as we see the significant increase of customers targeted by ransomware or other cyber-attacks,” said Eric Chen, ProphetStor CEO. “The recent ransomware ‘WannaCry’ attack on Friday, 12 May 2017, infecting more than 230,000 computers in 150 countries, and the ransomware takes over users’ files, demanding a ransom to restore them.” 

“The message from the UK’s National Crime Agency was “do not pay!” – There is no guarantee that systems will be restored. ProphetStor is proactively addressing this ransomware enigma by providing comprehensive data protection and full recovery solution to help organizations suffering from heavy losses in revenue over the years.”

ProphetStor DR Prophet® preserves production system data to backup storage, fully protecting the data against ransomware.

Key Features in DR Prophet® include:

Mirrored Disks for Off-Host Protection: DR Prophet creates an identical mirrored copy of the disks containing both the operating system and data on a separate storage server, providing an off-host copy that can be used in the event of a disaster.

Automatic Protection and Recovery Configuration: Automatically configures both the protection and recovery, less errors and risks while reducing the time to recovery through a seamless process.

Non-disruptive and Automatic Rehearsals: Scheduled rehearsals to be run automatically in an isolated environment to ensure the integrity and workability of recovery plans in the event of a disaster.

Application-Aware Data Protection: Ensure the consistency of data protected by ensuring the application is properly quiesced when it is protected, guaranteeing the integrity of the data that has been captured. 

Wide Platform Support and Recovery Models: From the latest version of Windows to Linux and Unix based environments, whether physical or virtual (e.g. VMware, OpenStack), DR Prophet protects them all. Recover one physical or virtual environment into another to provide multiple modes of recovery.

Rich REST APIs: Easily integrate with virtually any cloud management platform using the feature rich REST APIs to automate protection and recovery of digital services.
