The best protection against ransomware?
A backup copy
There is only one effective way to protect ourselves from ransomware and that is to make frequent backups.
The most effective method would be to have the important information replicated 3 times, once on your computer, once on a local backup and once in the cloud.
El ransomware is easily distributed over your network, so having a backup completely isolated from the rest is the best option to keep your data safe.
Choose security with the Data101 appliance
Windows is the most widely used operating system and therefore the one that cybercriminals are most likely to infect with their viruses and malware, so it is most probable for these programs to infect a Windows-based backup device than any other operating system.
Datos101 Appliance has its own operating system based on secure versions of Linux, your company will have a robust solution for backup and disaster recovery.
Know your backups
An effective protection against ransomware is to accurately know the status of your backups, the last time performed and to execute recovery testing at rigorous time intervals.
Launching a partial recovery of the scheduled files is vital to know the status of the backup and verify the integrity, to have everything ready for any eventuality.
If the infection has already occurred, speed is of the utmost importance.
The negative impact of an infection is minimized if we are prepared to restore the data and continue our work normally, search the backup for an uninfected version of the data, restore it and resolve the problem.
Datos101 software and services, such as our Disaster and Recovery,Recovery solution, considerably reduce data recovery time in straight forward manner, in addition to our support service that will help you in all the steps until you get your environment 100% up to speed.
