How to Keep Business Flowing During a Ransomware AttackVMware Security GM Kal De on What Gets Overlooked in Ransomware Defense Strategies
Time is money, and at no time is that adage more apparent than following a ransomware attack, where every second of downtime costs businesses in industries such as retail and e-commerce large sums of cash. Business continuity is therefore vital even before determining whether ransomed data or systems can be recovered, says Kal De, general manager of VMware's security business unit.
In a video interview with Information Security Media Group at RSA Conference 2022, De also discusses:
- What businesses overlook around ransomware defense;
- Top business continuity challenges following a ransomware attack;
- Why network and endpoint visibility is needed for true XDR.
De is responsible for defining VMware's security strategy. Previously, he served as vice president of engineering focused on VMware Carbon Black Cloud and as the vice president of research and development for VMware's cloud management business unit. De has also held roles overseeing product strategy and engineering at technology companies including Docker, Hewlett-Packard and Oracle.
