Introducing Continuous Data Protection (CDP) from Altaro VM Backup Software.
Ransomware infections can be disastrous for any company, being locked out of company data can bring any company to its knees very quickly even before factoring in the costs of recovering from a backup. Now ransomware authors are setting demands for recovering encrypted data as high as £200,000 to unencrypt your data.
Making sure you have an up to date antivirus solution deployed on your network will assist in catching the malicious payloads before they can spread over the network. Modern next generation firewalls can also be effectively used to scan traffic coming in and out of the network to further reduce the chance of a piece of ransomware software entering your network.
Creating regular backups of all the critical servers in your environment is the last line of defence against a ransomware attack as restoring the files or servers from a backup created less than 24 hours ago will be less costly than paying a ransom.
Backup solutions, such as Altaro, have introduced a new method of backups called Continuous Data Protection (CDP), enabling this feature will run backups of your critical data every 15 minutes. In the case of a ransomware attack the data you restore could be from 15 minutes before the data was encrypted this will massively reduce the amount of work lost due to the restore when compared to traditional daily backups.
