Baltimore, MD – FastNeuron, a leading server backup software solution competing worldwide with Acronis and Veeam, has introduced a new complimentary guide on ransomware prevention. The guide includes various ransomware prevention techniques and is published targeting specifically IT administrators and related personnel. Melissa Weekley, Marketing Manager of FastNeuron, explained: “In recent months there has been a surge in ransomware attacks. Ransomware causes billions of dollars in damages every year and is not just a matter concerning cybersecurity specialists. IT administrators need to take precautions and the specific tips and strategies to achieve a substantial level of protection are outlined in our new guide.”
Newer attacks that also affect data contained in cloud accounts are becoming very concerning. “Unfortunately people believe that their files are safe just because their file servers are backed up in the cloud, but the potential for data loss may be even higher”, she explained further. “Popular cloud services are actually a major target for cybercriminals. Many customers switch to our solution because their previous backup solution allowed the replication of infected files to their cloud account, thereby losing the originals. Or, in other cases, criminals were able to log into their cloud systems and infect all files it contained. Our ransomware guide describes several strategies that IT personnel can take to reduce the risk of data loss from malicious software.”
An additional ransomware protection strategy is FastNeuron’s truly immutable cloud storage that is completely isolated from the customer’s online account. For example, in case of cloud based attacks carried out by a criminal or disgruntled employee with complete control over the customer’s physical infrastructure, such as access to login information and decryption keys, companies can still recover their entire data set by accessing their immutable cloud data, even if their local storage as well as their cloud account were compromised simultaneously.
