What is ransomware?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. Wait, was it just 30 years ago? Ransomware is so common that we tend to think that it was always with us. Well, it’s just 31 years old but has caused numerous amounts of damage already — even though there’s still a moment of stunned incredulity when people first hear about ransomware.

This blog post will walk you through basic concepts and principles: What is ransomware? How does it infect your computer? And what is the impact on your business?

What is Business Continuity?

Business Continuity, what does it really mean? Frankly, the term has been around forever, since the days the first PC landed and became essential to the health and performance of business. In recent years, it has meant how companies ensure IT systems remain available and are often linked with Disaster Recovery — creating the acronym BCDR — something all IT pros will undoubtedly know and probably have some experience with over their career. However, in recent years, new terms have outshined good ole BCDR: High Availability, Always-on, Always-Available, Modern Data Protection, and Cloud Data Management, to name a few. While all these terms have different focuses and value propositions, they all pay homage to the OG, Business Continuity.

During the last 12 months, Veeam has continued to focus on the customer, executing its vision to be the most trusted provider of backup solutions that deliver Cloud Data Management. It’s not an easy task to continue innovating and delivering success to more than 375K customers, but that’s what we have been doing.
