Trilio has announced the release of TrilioVault for Kubernetes (TVK) v2.5, which offers a comprehensive approach to ransomware protection and recoverability in alignment with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework and in support of Zero-Trust architectures.
Trilio is leveraging the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to align its capabilities and approach, specifically the best practices detailed in the Data Integrity projects of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) at NIST. The three main components of the framework include Identify and Protect, Detect and Mitigate, and Recover. All TVK ransomware protection features today and beyond will align to this framework.
Trilio announced the following capabilities with TVK v2.5 to provide comprehensive ransomware protection:
- Backup Immutability: Ability to create immutable backups to protect against any malicious attempts to modify or delete the backups. The immutability capability works with S3-based object-locking features so that backups cannot be deleted from the target during the retention period. When the retention period is up, the backups are automatically cleared by the S3 object-locking mechanism which is controlled by TVK.
- Encryption: Ability to encrypt TVK backups with a Linux Unified Key Setup (LUKS) encryption format that uses an AES-256 cipher algorithm so encrypted backups cannot be read or stolen. The TVK implementation includes at-rest and in-flight encryption.
Additionally, Trilio also announced the following features in TVK v2.5: Multi-Namespace Backup Support, Backup Target Support and Authentication Support.
