Ransomware Changes Backup Software

The threat of ransomware has put IT on its toes. The pressure is on to backup everything more frequently and to make sure that recoveries happen faster than a BitCoin transaction. Backup software manufacturers need to up their capabilities too. Most have only just started getting their software ransomware ready. In our latest white paper Storage Switzerland lays out the new requirements for backup software and how to make sure your organization’s backup process is safe from a malware attack.

To address ransomware, most backup software vendors have aligned their existing feature set to show how it can help an organization protect against and recover from an attack. They’ve done little to meet one of the critical requirements protecting themselves from a ransomware attack. We cover the rest of the new requirements of backup in the ransomware age in our white paper “How to Ensure Your Backups Protect You from Ransomware,” it is available exclusively to registrants to our on demand webinar “Backup vs. Ransomware – 5 Requirements for Backup Success.”
