The Backup Gap
Data protection tools exist for no other reason but to provide recovery for lost data. But ransomware poses interesting challenges for traditional and modern forms of backup.
Tape-based backup and other legacy data protection systems are inefficient, introducing far too large of a recovery point to effectively mitigate a fast-moving ransomware attack. Modern endpoint and server backup products suffer similar limitations, given the default backup interval setting for even the most efficient backup tools ranges from 4-8 hours – nearly a full business day.
Losing a day’s worth of productivity can be can be costly for any organization, but especially for larger offices where hundreds or thousands of users create new files, collaborate on projects, etc.
