Backups Are Not Secure from Ransomware – Unless They Are Stored Off-Site

By following the 3-2-1 rule, a third copy of an organization’s backup is stored off-site with ThinkOn. If ransomware was compromising a production site, it’s easy to retrieve the off-site copy and get the systems back online.

As an additional layer of security, RansomGuard moves “deleted” files to a recycle bin that only ThinkOn has access to, thereby protecting it from being compromised. By combining these two strategies, even the most devious ransomware can be prevented. ThinkOn includes RansomGuard protection at no additional cost to the subscriber when they purchase Veeam Cloud Connect.
