Singapore – Multi-cloud data resilience firm Veritas Technologies has recently announced the latest artificial intelligence advancements in their Veritas 360 Defence. This strategic launch offers organisations the ability to recover more quickly from ransomware attacks with its self-defending data protection solution, a generative AI-powered operational copilot, and new ecosystem partners. 

For this initiative, the company will introduce its new self-defending data protection solution, comprising Veritas NetBackup and Veritas Alta Data Protection. These solutions are designed to monitor and safeguard against threats posed by compromised data protection user credentials. 

The said protection further extends beyond detecting anomalies in administrative user behaviours. More specifically, it includes automatic recognition of unusual administrator activity and autonomously adjusts security parameters. 

These parameters encompass multifactor authentication and multi-person authentication, secure data access, and fortify it against potential attacks.

Additionally, in its efforts to enhance cyber resilience, the company has also developed Veritas Alta Copilot, leveraging the latest advancements in large language models. This tool aims to streamline enterprise data management, reducing complexity, and is now accessible to Veritas Alta View users.

It is also capable of creating advanced reports for monitoring data protection infrastructure through simple conversation in natural language, identifying cyber vulnerabilities and operational inefficiencies quickly, as well as proactively assisting with troubleshooting and guiding users through complex data management tasks.

Matt Waxman, senior vice president of product management at Veritas, said, “Cyber criminals are now using sophisticated AI tools to increase the frequency, speed, and scale of their attacks, overwhelming data protection teams. At the same time, organisations are less likely to be hiring additional data protection specialists. This leaves both existing specialists and new generalists in need of additional support. The solution is intelligent data management tools that act as a sidekick to guide them in their fight against cybercrime.”

Matt Neubauer, chief information officer at Morgans, also stated, “AI-powered solutions from Veritas could help us transform how we approach data protection. They will be able to not only anticipate threats but also streamline our data management operations, saving us time and freeing up resources to focus on transformational activity.”

Meanwhile, Mark Stevens, global vice president of channels and alliances at Securonix, remarked, “A rise in AI-driven, social-engineered credential abuse attacks is putting all applications and data at risk. With Securonix joining the Veritas 360 Defence ecosystem, Veritas customers will be able to easily access an early warning from our AI-powered detection solution that stolen credentials are being used across a wide range of other applications.” 

“This will enable them—or their Veritas AI tools—to trigger enhanced security measures for their protection environments before they’re compromised,” he further added.

“Cyber resilience continues to be a team sport. As cybercriminals change their offence strategy from attacking systems to attacking the people who operate them, the security community needs to come together to adapt their defence strategy. No one can do this alone; they all need both partners and AI on their side,” Waxman concluded.

Five security partners have recently joined the Veritas 360 Defence ecosystem to enhance threat monitoring, protection, and recoverability. Among these partners is Securonix, a leader in next-generation security information and event management, user and entity behaviour analytics, and security orchestration automation and response.
