Protect and recover from ransomware threat with IDrive® Snapshots

September 21, 2018

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

IDrive offers comprehensive online backup and storage solutions with a host of 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 secure data storage, IDrive online backup offers the same level of security even while your data is being backed up to cloud.

Secondly, in the unfortunate event of a ransomware 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 and lets you perform point-in-time recoveries – 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.
