Windows file servers are a prime target for ransomware attacks. They are chock full of files, just waiting to be encrypted. They are also one the last set of servers to have patches applied. In this StorageShort Video we discuss how to better protect Windows file servers from ransomware attacks.
Certainly Job One for IT is to make sure all servers have the latest patches applied. But even up-to-date servers can be infiltrated. That means in addition to doing their best to keep ransomware out, IT also needs to minimize the exposure. Windows file servers just have too many files on them. Most surveys indicate that at least 80 percent of those files simply don’t need to be on the server. IT needs to move this data to a more secure storage system that, while still accessible, is much harder to hack.
