VergeIO Ramps Up Unbeatable Ransomware Protection with IOfortify

Users receive immediate alerts of an attack to act fast to prevent it and restore their entire system to a secure state within a matter of minutes

Ann Arbor, Mich, June 13, 2023 — VergeIO, the Ultraconverged Infrastructure (UCI) company, today introduced a groundbreaking solution for ransomware protection – IOfortify. This latest innovation combines robust security; unlimited, unchangeable clones; and rapid, complete recovery to fortify data integrity and provide users with true peace of mind.

Combining this data resilience with unlimited and unchangeable, space-efficient clones allows users to effortlessly roll back to an earlier version of its data center architecture to ensure business-critical information remains safe and secure from unwanted changes. Creating a set of space-saving copies takes milliseconds and allows the preservation of an unaffected infrastructure and VM state at any given time as a failsafe to any attempted ransomware attacks.

Recovery is crucial if malicious software is deployed. IOfortify is up to the task of providing quick and thorough restoration of systems, applications, and files. Because of its ability to speed the restoration process, IOfortify enables organizations to get back on track in a matter of moments, reducing downtime and ensuring business continuity with exceptional efficiency.

“VergeIO’s introduction of IOfortify marks an important milestone in ransomware defense. Its ultraconverged infrastructure solves a major hyperconverged infrastructure problem by delivering built-in ransomware defenses, providing users with immediate alerts and swift recoverability neutering ransomware attacks in minutes. This innovative cyber security defense layer fortifies data integrity in the face of evolving cyber threats. A must for any hyperconverged infrastructure.”

Marc Staimer, President of Dragon Slayer Consulting and senior analyst at Wikibon

IOfortify does more than help users recover from an attack, it helps them identify if they are under attack and points them to which clone is the best candidate for rapid recovery with minimal data loss.  Since VergeOS has control over the file system, it is able to detect any anomalies. With IOfortify, customers can receive immediate alerts of an attack, giving them the opportunity to act fast to prevent it and activate our rapid restoration services.

With IOfortify, we’ve redefined ransomware protection. One hundred percent of VergeIO customers who were affected by ransomware have successfully restored their entire system to a secure state within a matter of minutes. Those looking for unbeatable ransomware protection should embrace the future of fortified data integrity by building their infrastructure on VergeOS with IOfortify

Greg Campbell, VergeIO founder and CTO

VergeOS moves beyond legacy HCI configuration with its ultraconverged infrastructure (UCI), which integrates virtualization, storage, and networking into a single piece of software. This integration provides a high degree of efficiency that enables VergeOS to deliver more performance from existing hardware and a wider range of scale. VergeOS can scale up to meet the needs of the most demanding enterprise and scale down to fit the constraints of the edge.
