PRESS RELEASE: Huawei Launches First Data Center MRP Solution with "2 Lines of Defense and 6 Layers of Protection"

BARCELONA, Spain, March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Barcelona 2023, Huawei unveiled the industry's first multi-layer DC ransomware protection solution based on network-storage collaboration. Huawei recently commissioned IDC to write an IDC White Paper, Developing Ransomware Resilience with Multilayer Network, Storage, and Data Protection Architecture, which systematically defines best practices for multilayer protection system against ransomware attacks.

During ransomware attacks, hackers encrypt user data and restrict access to assets and force victims to pay ransom to unlock them. Ransomware attacks can not only cause service interruption, but also massive reputational damage for victims.

All ransomware attacks share some important key features from a service point of view:

a) Their software is extremely diverse. The number of ransomware variants increased by 98% between H2 2021 and H1 2022, making it very difficult to detect and respond to new and covert attacks quickly and effectively.

b) Ransomware spreads rapidly, leaving administrators little time to respond once the attack begins. Microsoft found that ransomware can penetrate a system to obtain permissions in as little as 45 minutes.

c) Businesses feel the impact of ransomware attacks more acutely than other types of users, as it typically takes a long time to restore services after an attack and often data cannot be restored at all . The IDC white paper shows that the median service downtime caused by ransomware attacks was 5 days in 2022, and more than 46% of organizations that paid a ransom were still unable to restore their data after the attack.

This puts companies in dire need of effective end-to-end protection, as traditional ransomware protection solutions simply cannot cope with these challenges.

Huawei's innovative multi-layer ransomware protection (MRP) solution uses data protection functions based on network-storage collaboration. Its three main functions (network-storage detection, network-storage response, and network-storage recovery) are capable of preventing encryption and data theft better than competitive solutions.

Duncan Brown, Vice President of Enterprise Research Europe at IDC, said, "We believe the time has come to elevate these strategies to a multi-layered approach that includes a mix of infrastructure technologies such as storage and networking, consistent and comprehensive awareness training on security and a regular update of the security of the endpoints and the network. This is the best defense against ransomware."
