The ultimate cure to the ransomware epidemic.
Backup and disaster recovery are the last line of defense against ransomware. In the event that ransomware does infect an organization’s data, if the backup and disaster recovery files are unharmed with an airgap solution, IT can avoid paying ransom and simply restore everything to a point before the attack. Implement an air gap solution to safeguard your data against a ransomware attack.
Why is it vital for organizations to have a safeguard against ransomware attacks?
Ransomware has grown to be one of the biggest problems on the web with some cases of high-profile targets paying thousands of dollars in order to regain access to their encrypted data. Ultimately, no matter the size of the company, time is money, and the longer your network is down, the more money it’s going to cost your business.
Simply put, ransomware could easily ruin any business. Being locked out of important files for even just a day can have a major impact on revenue. Given that ransomware takes most victims sometimes weeks or even months to recover data, the losses can be substantial.
Not only does being locked out of the network prolong the data salvage period, but the effort required to clean up and restore the networks is just as costly. It’s not always the direct financial hit of ransomware which will damage a business; their reputation will take a hit as well as consumers become wary of giving their data to organizations they believe to be insecure.
How to guard your business from a ransomware attack with an air gap solution.
An air gap can help safeguard against ransomware and other malware risks by securely retaining a copy of your data offline. An offline and in some cases offsite solution creates an inaccessible barrier that cannot be broken. Having multiple copies stored on different systems and offsite is known as an airgap. The most effective way to implement an air gap data protection solution is with data tape. Both the lifespan and capacity of tape make it ideal answer to your guard against ransomware.
