In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 video interview, VMblog sits down with Shiva Pillay, the GM and SVP of Americas at Veeam, to discuss his new role of taking over the Americas. Prior to this change, Pillay was in charge of the AsiaPac and Japan (APJ) region for Veeam. Now, he will bring that same level of energy and success to the Americas.

Pillay tells VMblog that companies are facing many challenges in keeping their business running today. It is a far more complex IT environment that encompasses the cloud, SaaS and on-premises resources. At the same time, there’s a growing threat from cyberattacks as ransomware attacks continue to rise in frequency, affecting many organizations at least once. Veeam is focused on helping customers keep their business running by protecting their data and if the worst happens, helping them to recover rapidly.

In this exclusive VeeamON 2023 interview, VMblog sits down with Dave Russell, the VP of Enterprise Strategies at Veeam, to discuss the new Veeam 2023 Ransomware Trends Report which was released during the event.

Looking at the ransomware trends, there is bad news and even worst news. As an example, according to the data in the report, one in seven organizations will see almost all (80%) data affected as a result of a ransomware attack - pointing to a significant gap in protection.

And paying the ransom does not ensure recoverability either. According to the study, while 59% paid the ransom and were able to recover data, 21% paid the ransom yet still didn't get their data back from the cyber criminals. Additionally, only 16% of organizations avoided paying ransom because they were able to recover from backups.

Russell discusses other study findings, and hopes that these findings help raise awareness across the industry. Veeam continues to add features and functionality into their products to help.

One other area of discussion that is important to consider is cyber insurance. What's interesting to note here is that while many companies have taken out and used cyber insurance in the past to help pay a ransom, many will find that this type of insurance may be going away.
