What Are Ransomware Attacks?

Ransomware refers to a type of malware that gains access to and encrypts a victim’s systems, devices or files, locking users out of their own networks.

Once ransomware has infected a network, the business is forced to pay a ransom to regain access to their files, data, or systems. If the company refuses to pay or meet the cybercriminal’s demands, the files will remain encrypted, or may be deleted.

In more sophisticated ransomware campaigns, attackers may exfiltrate the compromised data before locking systems, which enables the attackers to extort other organizations as collateral by threatening to disclose or sell their data if they refuse to pay.

Protect Your Business from Ransomware Attacks with Air-Gapped Backups

For most organizations, backups are a routine part of their data protection strategy. Many rely on backup and recovery tools that automate replication processes and ensure secure and reliable restores, should they become necessary. But these tools alone aren’t enough to defend against ransomware, unless they specifically incorporate ransomware protection.

With ransomware incidents growing at an alarming rate, organizations require backup and recovery tools that defend against these threats and enable organizations to quickly recover from attacks. Many backup and recovery tools now incorporate ransomware protection; although, these products differ in how they safeguard against these cyberthreats.

Learn about how to ransomware proof your data through air gapped backups, and how to create a backup and disaster recovery solution that is best suited to protect your company.
