Threat Detection through a Storage Lens

Cybercriminals have always been about data – stealing data, compromising data, holding data hostage. Businesses continue to respond with malware detection on laptops and networks to protect data and prevent breaches. Since storage houses what the bad actors want, shouldn’t storage be a critical component of a strong defense-in-depth security strategy?

This is the topic the SNIA Cloud Storage Technologies Initiative (CSTI) will explore on April 4, 2023 at our live webcast “Cyberstorage and XDR: Threat Detection through a Storage Lens.”

“Cyberstorage” is a term coined by Gartner. It is defined as doing threat detection and response in storage software or hardware. A parallel, related trend in the security industry is eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) which shifts some of the threat detection from centralized security monitoring tools (SIEMs) down into each domain (e.g., endpoint, network) for faster detection and automated response.  Factor in the growing impact of ransomware and all these forces are driving the need to find creative, new ways to detect malware, including from inside the storage domain.  

In this session we’ll discuss:

  • Cyberstorage and XDR – what are these emerging trends?
  • Threat detection and response methods through a storage lens
  • Possible approaches for detection when used in conjunction with security tooling
  • Why silos between security and storage need to be addressed for successful threat detection

Register today and bring your questions. We look forward to seeing you on April 4th.
