Backups cannot be assumed to be safe today, against an emergence of more sophisticated malware. These new variants were designed to be discrete, often sitting idle and being copied across the backup repository to then attack slowly – all with the ultimate goal of attacking as many systems as possible while at the same time avoiding detection for as long as possible. To avoid restoring trigger files, IT must be able to proactively verify and monitor the quality and viability of backups. The problem is that legacy verification methods cannot keep up with the growing volume of backup data that must be verified or the frequency with which verification must occur.
Lynn LeBlanc, CEO of HotLink, joined Storage Switzerland to share her perspective on how IT professionals may restructure their approach to backup verification so that all recovery points may be vetted, and malware attacks contained. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear her perspective on the new pain points related to backup verification that are emerging with modern ransomware, and how IT professionals may apply analytics and artificial intelligence for more efficient and thorough verification.
