Selecting the Right Backup and Recovery Solution for Cyber Resiliency
Restoring files from a backup should be your safest and most reliable solution for recovering from ransomware. How do you determine what data protection vendor best prepares you for a ransomware attack? While there is no one-size-fits-all approach, there are critical features of a ransomware remediation plan that all organizations should consider.
Additional technical requirements of a secure architecture
To ensure proper protection against ransomware, best-in-breed backup and recovery vendors implement strong security controls by design. Here are a few technical requirements when evaluating the underlying architecture:
Access to the filesystem to perform read/write operations is available to only the vendor at all times and never to an external client.
Vendor does not expose any standard storage protocols, such as NFS or SMB, for interacting with the filesystem.
Vendor does not allow read access of data in its native format to external clients.
Vendor performs backup validation checks to ensure backup data is never changed. This ensures that you only restore exactly what was in the original copy.
Immutability is native to the filesystem with no user configuration or management needed
