Immutable Backups: The Best Defense Against Ransomware Attacks

In a ransomware attack, cyber criminals access as much of your network and data as they can, then encrypt it so you can’t access anything unless you pay them a fee. If you do business today, you’ll need to have a plan and countermeasures in place.

Since more sophisticated ransomware attacks can also target your backups, Element Four and Veeam counter with immutability. This means that once a backup is taken, it cannot be changed. 

Immutable Backups are a key piece of the puzzle when protecting your business from these attacks by creating un-changeable yet accessible restore points. Element Four uses this as a part of their strategy to nullify  ransomware attacks – saving you time, hassle, and money.

Cyber Security Insurance

In addition to protecting themselves from ransomware and other threats, many businesses guard against the unexpected costs of an attack with cyber security insurance. Bringing their systems back after an attack and the resulting lost business can both be very costly, and this coverage lessens the burden. However, in most cases your insurer will require you to maintain ransomware and malware protection and immutable backups. Element Four can help you understand these requirements and implement them in a way that’s cost-effective and fully compliant.
