Backups Need Protection Too

Anne Bisagno


We hope we've already convinced you that backups are a key defense against ransomware. But your backups need to be protected against infection too, or they'll be worse than worthless. Here are some recommendations for keeping your backups safe:


1.  Understand the backup policies of any online file sharing services you use. 



Monitor your backup process metrics daily for suspicious activity (for example, the inability to compress or deduplicate files.) 



Keep your backups separate from your normal operating environment so ransomware can't access and compromise them. 


Back up your most business-critical data hourly or daily and test your ability to restore from it regularly. 


Xantrion can help you set up a backup process that's as impervious to ransomware as possible. Call us before the worst happens!
