Cyber Chat – What Jurassic World Can Teach About Multi-Factor Authentication

My family and I have recently started a weekly dinner and a movie routine, where we base the dinner menu around the characters or premise of the movie. For us, we’re counting down to an upcoming family trip, but I’m hoping to keep up this fun routine even after our trip. The excitement of the kids picking an envelope as we all watch with excitement to see which movie we will be watching that week — and the same anticipation from mom and dad to see what type of food they will need to prepare in the coming days. Oh, the fun of family traditions… but now to the security part of this story.  Read more

Cyber Chat – Welcome to Cybersecurity Awareness Month

The other day, I was watching a local junior high school soccer match. One team was advancing down the field as the forward was calling out to his teammates where to go and who to cover. The other team was all crowded together just trying to get the ball. One team was focused on their strategy, while the other team was focused on one short term goal — get the ball. It probably isn’t hard to guess which team came out the victor in that game. The team focused on their short-term goal lost focus on their fundamentals — they didn’t think about what they would do if they got the ball or if their short-term goal wasn’t met and ... Read more

Service Providers: The Veeam difference in BaaS for public cloud

Being a managed service provider offering Backup up as a Service (BaaS) for AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud can be daunting. You may end up trying to decipher the best solution just by combing through marketplace ads and descriptions. Deciding what’s needed and what’s not needed is crucial to ensure that you provide a cost-effective and efficient backup system that’s not only good for your customer but (let’s be honest) good for you as well.

Veeam Backup & Replication: Migrate existing repository volumes of a lost server to a new one

We’ll dive into a disaster scenario in which a Veeam repository server cannot be recovered, but the block storage, used for storing the backups, is still intact and consistent. As an example, a classic situation would be a physical server with hardware that is defective, but the disc shelves or fibre-channel sub-storage system is not affected by the hardware failure.

Why Ransomware Attacks Work and What You Can Do Besides Pay the Ransom

Television and movies would have us believe cybercriminals have to execute complex plans that involve rappelling from rooftops and avoiding lasers to break into our networks. In reality, it only takes a well-crafted email and a distracted person to start a chain of events that can cost millions of dollars to repair. While that seems like a simple problem to solve, multiple layers of security controls needed to fail for the ransomware attack to succeed.  Read more

Defend your company against phishing attacks

Phishing scams are attempts by cybercriminals to trick users into performing some type of action like clicking on a link, entering credentials, opening an attachment or even making changes to a company’s process. These scams are most commonly delivered as malicious emails but can also take other forms. They can result in ransomware, installation of malicious software (viruses, Trojans, worms), stolen credentials, theft of money, data loss or even identity theft. Phishers exploit common human traits, like trusting people you know, to trick you into doing something that you normally wouldn’t. Read more

Guide for updating Veeam Backup for Microsoft 365

Updating anything in an environment can be a very stressful process and is easily the least favorite task of any IT team. This is in large part due to the unknowns that can happen while updating any products or components. No one wants to modify something that is currently working, bringing on the mentality of “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it”. This common rule can be a double edge sword that leaves your environment open to security vulnerabilities and dated product features. Considering this problem, I think Grace Hopper said it best, “The most dangerous phrase in the language is, ‘we’ve always done it this way’”. This post serves as a guide for the reasons why you should update ... Read more

How Should Companies Handle Ransomware?

According to the Veeam 2022 Data Protection Trends Report, 76% of companies admitted to being attacked by ransomware in 2021. If we broaden the question and asked how many companies experienced a cyberattack, the number would be closer to 100%. Some of the main reasons ransomware has been so successful include the low cost of entry and high return on investment for the attackers.  Read more
