Ransomware: The moment of truth for data protection

Are you ready for a ransomware attack?

A complete ransomware strategy includes both reducing the risk of a successful attack and lessening the impact of an attack that does succeed.

You need to:

  1. Create a plan

An effective plan is the foundation for a full and speedy resumption of normal operations.

  1. Prevent attacks

Proactive steps to take include foundation hardening, application hardening, and ransomware protection.

  1. Monitor your environment

Constantly be on the lookout for any anomaly, detecting the attack as quickly as possible to reduce its impact.

  1. Restore your data

Perform fast restores with an intact data copy to quickly resume normal business operations and reduce the ransomware impact.

  1. Test your plan

Perform frequent tests to verify you can meet your defined SLAs for high-priority data and applications.
