In the case of a ransomware attack, the SSD-Insider ++ idea allows for the analysis of disc activity patterns.
A group of academics from South Korean and American institutions has created new technology to help safeguard solid-state drives (SSDs) against ransomware assaults by detecting and erasing encryption in seconds.
In the case of a ransomware attack, the SSD-Insider ++ idea allows for the analysis of disc activity patterns. Instead of software security, the technique directly employs the drive itself – protection is supplied at the controller level through the use of specific firmware.
As per the study’s authors, this notion came from the fact that most users are unconcerned about installing anti-ransomware software.
If malicious activity is discovered, the system stops the drive’s I / O, enabling the user to deactivate the malicious encryption process. SSD-Insider ++ can also recover data in a matter of seconds.
During testing, the technique was shown to be 100 percent efficient against both laboratory and real-world ransomware strains, including WannaCry and Mole. Within 10 seconds, the data was recovered. It is reported that the technology caused a 12.8-17.3 percent increase in job delays.
