Nebulon Launches Server-Storage Threat Detection, Cybersecurity Solutions

Nebulon has released the TripLine server-storage threat detection solution for cryptographic ransomware, according to a prepared statement.

The company also has announced smartDefense, a cybersecurity solution that helps organizations identify threat vectors and ransomware attacks and recover from cyberattacks.

What Nebulon TripLine and smartDefense Offer

TripLine uses Nebulon's smartInfrastructure service to identify attacks that affect an organization's application data, operating systems and application software, the company said. It uuses machine learning (ML) that runs in Nebulon's Secure Enclave infrastructure domain and identifies encrypted and unencrypted blocks in real time.

These results are sent to the Nebulon ON cloud, which uses machine learning and statistical models to compare that data to the historical average of encrypted blocks for a given volume. If there is a spike in encrypted blocks, TripLine generates an alert within a few minutes of the first suspicious result.

TripLine delivers performant ransomware detection and recovery across an organization's physical infrastructure without requiring re-installation or backups, Nebulon indicated. It can be used in conjunction with the Nebulon ON data plane to provide push-button, API-accessible recovery of all affected volumes through TimeJump, Nebulon's four-minute ransomware recovery service.

smartDefense is designed to complement an organization's cybersecurity framework, Nebulon noted. smartDefense uses the Nebulon ImmutableBoot solution to protect an organization's application infrastructure with immutable server software. It maintains a known good version of an organization's operating systems and application stack within the Secure Enclave of every server. In addition, an organization's server reverts to this trusted software instance following a reboot.

In addition, smartDefense offers detection and recovery capabilities that leverage TripLine and TimeJump, Nebulon stated. An organization can use TimeJump to recover its operating systems, application configurations and data. Meanwhile, smartDefense and TripLine together allow an organization to identify a point of attack within their infrastructure and revert to a secure state.
