Secure your business against ransomware with IDrive® Snapshots

May 24, 2019

Ransomware attacks have been on the rise in the last few years. In a typical scenario, organizations lose access to their data post the attack and are faced with the decision of paying a huge ransom for data retrieval, without any guarantee of reclaiming the data. When the stakes of data loss are this high, you need more than the traditional data protection plan to secure your business. IDrive cloud backup has got your back!

IDrive offers comprehensive online backup and storage features to support your business’s various needs. Firstly, IDrive lets you maintain a Disk Image Backup of your drives in a 256-bit AES-encrypted environment on cloud. And not just data encryption at-rest, IDrive online backup offers the same level of security even while your data is being backed up to the cloud.

Secondly, in the unfortunate event of a malware attack, IDrive cloud backup lets you recover an older, uncorrupted version of the data via IDrive® Snapshots. Snapshots provides a historical view of the data in your IDrive cloud backup account and lets you perform point-in-time recovery. To recover after a malware attack, simply choose a recovery point created before the attack. It protects your data against malware and provides a fast business recovery solution.
