The popularity and open source roots of Linux do not guarantee a foolproof environment against ransomware, said Krista Macomber, a senior analyst at Evaluator Group, but Linux underpins the popular container orchestration platform Kubernetes.
Kubernetes and other container platforms can offer greater data security due to the fragmented structure of microservices but increase the infrastructure surface for a potential attack, she said. However, the capabilities Zerto can bring to Linux, such as multifactor authentication (MFA) and role-based access control (RBAC), can help to stymie those threats.
“Microservices architectures are gaining attention as being potentially more secure,” Macomber said. “Capabilities that Zerto added like the MFA and RBAC and the ability to be self-healing are important.”
