Scalable Ransomware Protection: Analysis of VMware’s Cloud Disaster Recovery and Ransomware Recovery Service Offerings

Scalable Ransomware Protection_Analysis of VMware's Cloud Disaster Recovery and Ransomware Recovery Service Offerings

As cyberattacks become more frequent and sophisticated, the ability to recover from them is becoming increasingly important. Restoring data and systems to their pre-attack state is critical for minimizing downtime, data loss, and financial losses resulting from an attack.

Ransomware attacks can be difficult and time-consuming to recover from. Their unique challenges include the fact that they often target backups, making it difficult to restore data; they may encrypt data in a way that makes it difficult to decrypt; and they can result in significant downtime, disrupting business operations.

Recovering from a ransomware attack requires a comprehensive plan that includes regular backups of data, encrypted backups that are stored offline, a process for identifying and isolating infected systems, and a process for restoring data from backups.

In our latest Lab Insight Report, Scalable Ransomware Protection: Analysis of VMware’s Cloud Disaster Recovery and Ransomware Recovery Service Offerings, done in partnership with VMware, we detail the audit of the solution that we conducted, as well as its key merits, including rapid setup and scalability, and its comprehensive ransomware-specific features.
