HotLink Offers Sneak Peek of First Fine-Grained Cybersecurity Solution for Backup and Disaster Recovery Systems at RSA Conference USA

Hybrid IT leader previews platform to eliminate latent cyber threats and neutralize the impact of bad actors

Santa Clara, Calif., April 11, 2018HotLink® Corporation, the market leader in transformation solutions for hybrid IT, today announced it will host a preview of its new cybersecurity platform for backup and disaster recovery systems at RSA Conference USA 2018 on April 16 through 20 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. Attendees will get a glimpse of new fingerprinting technology that will let service providers and enterprises secure their data protection systems against compromises that can render backups and replicated virtual machines unrecoverable following a production failure.

Ransomware, malware, cyber espionage and a wide range of other risks make cloud-based backup and disaster recovery systems a strategic defense if front-end security tools fail to thwart a breach. Yet, if compromised files or malicious configurations are unknowingly propagated into data protection systems, recovery may be extremely time-consuming or even impossible. With threats increasing in complexity and bad actors able to exploit a growing number of security openings, the potential for compromises to remain undetected for long periods of time poses an ever-increasing risk.  

HotLink’s new solution addresses these issues with the first comprehensive cybersecurity platform for continuous protection of cloud-based backup and disaster recovery systems. The company’s patent-pending technology provides fine-grained security fingerprints and policy-based analysis of all backups and replicated virtual machines, correlating against multiple threat intelligence feeds and evaluating a range of other security attributes for irregularities. In addition to easy-to-understand security dashboards and scoring methodologies, detailed remediation procedures provide clear corrective actions for all compromises. Minimal computing resources are required for analysis, so every restore point can be easily and affordably tested and analyzed.

“Security attacks on companies of all sizes have significantly increased demand for cloud-based backup and disaster recovery services. However, detecting and remediating the broad spectrum of security issues comes at a high cost,” said Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink. “Vulnerabilities in IT environments can lie in wait for weeks or months, rendering the last good configuration very difficult to identify. Worse, the longer a compromise is undetected, the higher the likelihood that no safe or viable backup exists. HotLink’s new fingerprinting technology is the first solution to enable fine-grained, automated security testing on every backup taken, so IT teams can have full confidence in a fast recovery following a production security breach.”
