With the current boom in ransomware attacks, cloud-based backup and restore capabilities are not longer an additional layer of security--they are critical to overcoming an attack. The same technologies that make cloud-based backup convenient and manageable now give businesses the chance to restore quickly when the worst happens.
- Image-based backups sent to the cloud ensure continuous data backup - Snapshots capture the state of your storage system at a given recovery point. This allows the business to restore their data to a point close to an attack—ensuring minimal or no data loss.
- Easy back up of both physical and virtual environments, coupled with an easy way to specify restore points - Capturing all restore points should easy, especially for enterprises relying on highly virtualized environments.
- Appliance-based solutions for small businesses and remote and branch offices - A compact appliance option like the StorageCraft OneXafe Solo gives plug-and-play flexibility and ease of use to businesses of any size. It allows users a wide range of replication destinations, from local NAS, remote servers or to a secure cloud location.
- Ensuring data integrity in many ways - The last thing an enterprise wants is to restore from backups only to find corrupted data. The best solutions include features like self-healing repairs to ensure data integrity.
- Browser-based, easy “one-pane” management of the backup architecture - Most IT networks expand over time and data has a habit of being saved to new areas. Key to a quick restore of an infected system is the confidence that there are no unprotected areas in your backup architecture.
