Hi! In this post, I describe some aspects of the analysis of entropy analysis associated with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques aimed at detecting Ransomware.

This is an exciting topic. As announced in VeeamON 2023, Veeam is working to improve the VDP´s ransomware detection capabilities with AI/ML to perform an in-line entropy analysis of the data stream on backup proxies to detect previously unencrypted data becoming encrypted.

It can undoubtedly be another powerful tool in the battle against ransomware.

Thanks, Chris! This approach makes much sense for backup systems because files must be processed in each backup job.

Absolutely agree and having the inline scanner is going to help.  Already testing the Beta myself.

This is definitely going to be a great addition to Veeam for sure. Great blog post. 👍
