Overland-Tandberg/Sphere 3D Unveils rdxLOCK Software for RDX Media With RansomBlock Feature

The rdxLOCK License is included along with RDX WORM Media purchased.

Overland-Tandberg (Sphere 3D Corp) introduces the rdxLOCK software, with the RansomBlock feature for its removable disk archive system, RDX.

Customers can receive an rdxLOCK license along with any RDX WORM medium. The license enables the RDX removable disk with WORM functionality to help ensure revision safety. In addition, the rdxLOCK can be deployed as RDX RansomBlock to further protect RDX systems from malware. Last year, a United States FBI Computer Crime Study reported an average of 4,000 ransomware attacks a day worldwide. In the same year, Osterman Research, Inc. cited that over 50% of companies were hit with ransomware attacks, highlighting that the conventional backup and antivirus software solutions have not been sufficient to protect company network data and online operations.

The company's response to this problem is the rdxLOCK software, which is available for all RDX QuikStor devices and QuikStation appliances using RDX WORM media. It enables the devices and appliances to be configured for audit-proof storage to comply with legal provisions and therefore, permit offline backups. Moreover, the RansomBlock function guards the medium from damaging software such as malware, trojans, crypto-viruses and particularly aggressive ransomware.

RansomBlock inhibits non-authorized data access to RDX media and prevents malware from deleting, renaming or manipulating data. For this purpose, operators can determine application software with write permission on the RDX WORM medium without modifying other security software. Non-authorized software, however, is blocked from transcribing and changing automatically. Also, if required, users may change the deployment scenario of their WORM media and adjust the mode after re-formatting. It is also possible to work with different PC and server systems as the licenses are solely bound to the removable media. RDX media and RansomBlock mode can be addressed via any conventional backup software.

Veeam Backup and Replication has been verified with RDX through the Veeam Software, Inc., technology alliance partnership for many years.

Using rdxLOCK with WORM media in RansomBlock mode offers following advantages:

  • Reliable protection from virus and ransomware attacks
  • Transparent integration of backup applications
  • Automatic blocking from ransomware and virus attacks
  • Whitelist - and blacklist functions for applications
  • Compatibility with RDX drive and RDX QuikStation appliance
  • For Windows OSs Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 as well as Windows server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2 and 2016
  • 60-day-test version with full functionality available from BackupWorks.com (SEE LINK BELOW)

Ransomware has evolved into the most dangerous cyber threat for organizations and companies with the demand that existing data protection strategies be optimized, RdxLOCK with WORM and RansomBlock functionality facilitates the valuable and secure combination of Onsite and Offsite backups.
