Janine joins Steve King to discuss the current cybersecurity landscape and what STASH’s solution brings to the table in order to help. Speaking about the pervasive and persistent problem of ransomware, Janine elaborates:
“What we have done at STASH is take a look at why this is happening. And we develop something that completely circumvents ransomware. What it does is if a company is held up and frozen by people who want to do them harm by stealing their data, or by manipulating the data or destroying the data, you can simply go to the STASH dashboard, and you can click a few buttons. You can restore data by the entire system to versions through date and time. … And you have circumvented the ransomware on the other side without paying the ransom.”
