Cybercrime and ransomware – the exorbitant, disruptive underbelly of the liberating cyber world we have embraced and depend upon. It’s no longer a question of if an attack will happen but when, and the best strategy for protecting against it is to assume that, at some point, it will happen. But it doesn’t have to be as debilitating as you might think. The key is preparation, readiness and an holistic approach to your data protection strategy.
Preparation – Where to start?!
There is so much noise and information being touted by Data Protection vendors, it’s no surprise that companies and organisations have a hard time figuring out how they should protect their data, but more importantly how to ensure that they can recover their data in the event of a ransomware attack. This unfortunate consequence of this information overload, intended to help protect, is that it can lead to mis-guided decisions that leave you vulnerable and at risk.
Minimal disruption, maximum recovery
Like most Data Protection vendors, at Arcserve we have many customers that have unfortunately been hit by one or more Ransomware attacks. However, unlike other Data Protection vendors, when an Arcserve Solution secured by Sophos is implemented and aligned with our 3-2-1 best practice approach, we guarantee that one or more copies of your data will always be available for recovery in the event of a ransomware attack, or your money back.
Not only are we able to recover your data free from ransomware, but we can also enable you to spin up virtual machines so that your vital business applications can start immediately while data is being restored in parallel.
Duty of Care
As a data protection vendor we see that we have a duty of care to our customers to reduce their risk by providing the best safeguards against the ever-increasing threat of cybercriminals on their business critical data. Working with you at the data protection tier, we take it upon ourselves to ‘own’ the problem: protect, secure and recover. Can your current data protection provider offer the same? In many cases the provider will inform you of a problem and then the onus is on you to resolve it – a notification service if you will, far from the belt and braces approach that companies and organisations should be demanding for their data.
At Arcserve our 3-2-1 best practice implementation of UDP and strategic integration with best of breed endpoint protection provider, Sophos, enables us to take a holistic approach to data backup that works to significantly reduce the risks by implementing the appropriate security solution and architectural approach that enables you to protect, secure and recover your data, across multiple workloads and varying infrastructure – on premises and in the cloud.
