In 2023, AI has been dominating much of the IT conversation. But Ransomware remains a key topic as it continues to threaten organizations of all sizes. As businesses strive to protect their critical data, Object First emerges as a game-changer with their Ootbi solution.
In this exclusive VMblog interview as part of our VMware Explore US 2023 coverage, we sit down with Anthony Cusimano, chief evangelist of Object First, to explore the innovative features of Ootbi and its role in providing simple, powerful, and affordable backup storage for Veeam customers.
Ransomware, Immutability and the Power of Object First Ootbi.
Anthony Cusimano provides valuable insights into the who, what and why of Object First's Ootbi. Built with a focus on simplicity, power, and affordability, Ootbi empowers Veeam customers to safeguard their data with ease. By combining advanced backup storage technology with ransomware-proof features, Ootbi ensures data integrity and protection, even in the face of sophisticated attacks. A key aspect of Ootbi is its immutability feature. By making backup data immutable, Object First prevents ransomware from tampering with or encrypting critical files. This ensures that organizations can recover their data securely, without falling prey to extortion. Anthony Cusimano dives into the technical details of how Ootbi achieves immutability, highlighting its effectiveness in thwarting ransomware attacks. And we take a look at how Object First partners with VMware and solves problems for VMware users and VMware implementations.
