Is 3-2-1 for Backup Enough to Protect Against Ransomware?
Because many organizations continue to pay ransoms to unlock their data, ransomware continues to become more sophisticated. The malware now attacks backup applications themselves and is infiltrating backup data. In this ChalkTalk Video Storage Switzerland and Asigra discuss how ransomware is evolving, why backups get attacked and when the age old 3-2-1 best practice is not enough.
We discuss how backup vendors need to advance their solutions to leverage repository name changing to better protect themselves from attack. We also discuss multi-factor authentication to confirm backup data deletion. Finally we’ll discuss how to prevent attack loops where the ransomware sits silently and is backed up multiple time. Then the ransomware is triggered but when IT attempts to restore, it repeated restores the ransomware file with it.
