Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually.1 According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.2 No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.3 Ransomware is the equivalent of catastrophic data loss, except

The core technology behind Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) has evolved for decades. More recently, DRaaS has linked to the cloud, and finally hit its stride. Today it can provide unprecedented availability options to companies who don’t have secondary data centers dedicated to business continuity. Before now, only IT teams with additional IT budget, staff and geographic locations could effectively hedge against downtime, and disasters. But today’s DRaaS means that businesses of all sizes have the peace of mind that comes with knowing a replica of their data and systems is hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the DRaaS provider. And the technology ensures that a replica is not only available, but always current and immediately available. This attractive value proposition led Gartner to predict that global DRaaS revenue will rea

IT admins tasked with restoring servers or lost data during a disruption are consumed with a single-minded purpose: successful recovery. But it shouldn’t take an adverse event to underscore the importance of recovery as part of an overall backup strategy. This is especially true with large datasets. Before you consider how you’re going to back up large datasets, first consider how you may need to recover the data. Variables abound. Is it critical or non-critical data? A simple file deletion or a system-wide outage? A physical server running onsite or a virtual one hosted offsite? These and a handful of other criteria will determine your backup and disaster recovery (BDR) deployment. What do we mean by large? A simple question with a not-so-simple answer. If your total data footprint is 5 TB or more, that’s considered large. But what kind of data is it? How many actual files are there? How frequently do they change? How much can they be compressed? It’s likely that two different 5 TB en

Global data deduplication provides important benefits over traditional deduplication processes because it removes redundant data through entire enterprises, not just single devices. Global deduplication increases the data deduplication ratio—the size of the original data measured against the size of the data store after redundancies are removed. This helps reduce the amount of storage required at a time when businesses face exponential storage growth. Chief benefits of global deduplication include: • Reductions in storage of up to 60% • The most optimal deduplication ratio • Enterprise-wide reach • Massive reductions in backup-related WAN traffic By shrinking storage capacity needs, data deduplication can cut storage costs quickly. At the same time, businesses today need to access and utilize their data in real time, making the most recent and relevant information available. By eliminating redundant data, deduplication technology makes it simpler for data to be managed across various b
