Topic: Ransomware - Why data recovery is more relevant than ever before
Data is the lifeblood of modern business. It is accessed by more people, in more ways, from more places and more frequently than ever before. This has created the ideal environment for Ransomware to be exploited by bad actors based on a number of potential entry methods and points to the network.
IT must work to ensure that data is accessible, but also secured. What happens when the security system fails, as has been publicly demonstrated by the hacks of Atlanta and Mecklenburg county? The answer: a very bad day, week, months at the office for all involved.
Effective data recovery software and appropriate data storage tremendously mitigate the damage and allows for a minimum disruption to the business for when security fails (and of course, also allows for quick recovery of downed servers, work stations, file/folder recoveries and even full site "crater" events).
