Backup and Recovery
The #1 Solution for Cybersecurity Protection:
Taking frequent backups of all data considered critical to your business is vital. The exact frequency of backups will vary based on your business’ specific needs. Traditionally, most businesses took a daily backup, and for some businesses this may still be suitable. However, today’s backup products are designed to make incremental copies of data throughout the day to minimize data loss.
When it comes to protecting against cyber-attacks, solutions that back up regularly allow you to restore data to a point in time before the breach occurred without losing all of the data created since the previous night’s backup. In a busy business environment, it is recommended (and very possible) to back up your data every 15 minutes by using the correct product.
Given our years of experience with malware and cyber-attacks the one single way you can guarantee that your business is protected and recoverable is by having a fully managed and working backup solution.
Some data protection products can take image-based backups that are stored in a virtual machine format—essentially a snapshot of the data, applications, and operating system. This allows users to run applications from the backup copy. This functionality is typically referred to as instant recovery or recovery-in-place, it provides business continuity and is perfect for an ‘always on’ business environment.
