Keep your data safe against ransomware with IDrive's multi-version backup

March 27, 2020

Ransomware attacks locks out users of their own systems, as cyber criminals use malicious software to encrypt files. Affected users are presented with two options: either pay ransom or lose their data forever. Even after paying ransom there's no guarantee of successful data recovery. Sounds scary right?

What would you do if your systems were infected with some encryption enabled ransomware? As they say prevention is better than cure, taking regular backups of your data is your best weapon against the ransomware threat. A cross-platform compatible and multi-version backup solution like IDrive protects you from data loss. It lets you recover affected files by restoring their previous versions, stored behind military-grade encryption in the cloud. Read on to find out how IDrive can help you protect against data loss.
