White paper: Ransomware protection with Veritas NetBackup Appliances
Ransomware and ransomware attacks are a top concern for enterprise customers today. Spear phishing works. Ransomware is big business and attackers are relentless in their pursuit to develop new, creative ways to infiltrate corporate networks and IT environments to seize data and hold it hostage. The key is to be resilient and to be able to restore at scale. Enterprise customers also want to leverage the cloud, using a hybrid approach that combines on-premises infrastructure with multiple cloud storage vendors.
NetBackup Appliances provide a simple, performant and secure backup solution. As a comprehensive data protection solution, you can use NetBackup Appliances to help protect against the potential attack of backup and recovery infrastructure and quickly recover production environments from such attacks. This allows companies to stay focused on their daily business instead of focusing on managing infrastructure. NetBackup Appliances have been designed and optimised to bring you the best data protection and recovery tools available combined with integration with multiple cloud vendors.
The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the ransomware and malicious insider problem, the basics of how ransomware works, as well as to provide a detailed description about how businesses can best protect themselves and recover from a ransomware event using Veritas NetBackup Appliances.
