No company or industry is fully protected against ransomware attacks. Most malware/ransomware attacks involve encrypting and exfiltrating a company’s data and holding it hostage until a payment is made. Even after a payment is made, there is no guarantee that the data will be returned. However, with careful planning, and with the right partner, your company does not need to fall prey to these bad actors.
IDC best practices recommend that organizations examine four areas in addressing malware:
- Detection technology.
- Integrated data protection solutions.
- Business and IT process training and awareness.
- Continuous review and continuous learning.
IDC also states that “Because malware attacks, especially ransomware, can be so debilitating to an organization, successful responses to an attack should include comprehensive disaster recovery.”
Recovery Point offers a variety of backup, replication, and DRaaS solutions that enable your business to failover to your RPS DR environment and restore to a previous point-in-time before the attack occurred. This point-in-time recovery capability protects your data and enables you to be back up and running as quickly as your defined Recovery Time Objective (RTO). So long, bad actors.
