Protect and Recover from ransomware threat with IDrive® Snapshots

March 4, 2021

Ransomware attacks have been on the rise in the last few years. Typically, post the attack, users 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 chances of data loss are high, you need more than the traditional data protection plan. IDrive Cloud Backup has got your back!

IDrive offers comprehensive backup and storage solutions with a host of features. Firstly, IDrive lets you maintain a Disk Clone of your drives in a 256-bit AES-encrypted environment on cloud. It doesn’t just secure data storage, but also offers the same level of security even while your data is being backed up to the cloud.

Secondly, in the unfortunate event of a ransomware attack, IDrive Cloud Backup enables you to recover an older, uncorrupted version of the data via IDrive® Snapshots. Snapshots provide a historical view of the data in IDrive and let you perform point-in-time recoveries – to recover after a malware attack, simply choose a recovery point created before the attack. It safeguards your data against malware and provides a fast recovery solution.
