Ransomware is a major threat to backup storage systems in organizations. It can occur in a non-ending cycle by lying dormant in the network until data is retrieved due to which a ransomware backup protection system is necessarily installed in the system.
In ransomware, the malware gets you as you’re backing it up along with your files too. The “ransomware attack loop” encrypts files completely before attacking and affects all the files in the backup thus promising a ransom to the attacker. This white paper discusses methods for prevention from ransomware infiltration and methods of successful backup data recoveries.
