Involta, a provider of cloud computing, hybrid IT and data services firm, announced the launch of  Involta Air Gap to secure business backup, as digital migration continues to advance into the cloud. Involta Air Gap provides robust air security — the space between working and backup — to stop cyber criminals from accessing important information, significantly mitigating the severity of expensive ransomware attacks.

With increased cybercrime at corporate level, this solution is vital. Cybercrimes have increased significantly over the past year in terms of high-profile ranching campaigns and viruses, malware and DoS (denial of service). This has led to unprecedented cyber and information security spending among businesses. Research forecasts that the world will have a global cost of 11.4 million dollars every minute by the end of 2021.

“In the arena of cybersecurity, ransomware attacks target back-ups, crippling an organization’s ability to access its critical data. Involta Air Gap builds on cybersecurity measures that may already be in place and acknowledges that securing enterprise data in a separate location is critical. The premise is that a cybercriminal can’t access back-ups if there is no connection between environments. Involta Air Gap was developed to help enterprises win the war against cybercrime, especially those using AWS and Veeam cloud solutions,” said Mark Cooley, Vice President of Security and Compliance, Involta.

It continues to follow AWS’s elevated relations with AWS as the AWS Partner Network’s Advanced Consulting partner and its Veeam Cloud and Service Provider (VCSP) status in the AWS Partner Network (APN).
