Backup and Ransomware Protection

GreenAnt provides an integrated ransomware protection and backup service that enables rapid restoration of business operations in the event of a ransomware attack.

There are two levels of service we provide - one for organisations with data-centre based operations and the other for office-based networks.

How is Zero Different?

GreenAnt Zero stores and snapshots data in a fully encrypted form (Zero Knowledge) - greatly reducing potential attack vectors and securing data from supply chain and service provider attacks - a first in the Australian backup market.

  • Zero-Knowledge backup includes:
    • Fully encrypted data backups (at all times)
    • Hardware Yubikey for fast restoration of data
    • Offsite encrypted backups
    • Engineer support for configuration, maintenance, and restoration of data if needed
  • True 3+2+1 solution (3 copies, 2 media, 1 offsite)
  • All NVMe based backup appliances
  • Flexible snapshot schedule (local up to every minute, offsite for up to 7 years)
  • Easy management with dashboard:
    • dataset management analytics
    • snapshot and replication schedule
    • sharing via SMB, NFS, iSCSI
    • Active Directory and LDAP support
    • monitoring and alerts
  • Suitable for health and medical record level data privacy

Ransomware Protection for the Office

For office or local networks, the Zero service provides a silent, small-form-factor appliance that is designed to take daily or hourly encrypted snapshots of a computer or local network. If the computer or network experiences a ransomeware intrustion, the computer or network can be fully restored from the last backup snapshot within minutes.

The Zero server appliance is configured based on required storage and fits into any Linux, MacOS or Windows environment. It’s as simple as connecting to your local network. Engineering support is provided for configuration and data recovery.
