Knowing all the options to help protect your environment is great but it’s time to put the pieces together. The question you should be asking is not "If it will happen?" but "Are you prepared when it does happen?" Are you waiting for ransomware to activate in your environment or are you taking steps to mitigate damage before it happens? This article will help you take the steps today to answer those questions and what tools we offer to make this possible.
Veeam understands the need for Backup as a Service (BaaS) and has offered what we call Veeam Cloud Connect (VCC). VCC is handed by reputable service providers, which we refer to as Veeam Cloud Service Provider (VCSP) partners. These service providers not only take the pressure off a business to manage their off-site backups to better meet the 3-2-1 Rule but they also provide an extra layer of protection in the case of a ransomware attack. Below we will discuss how this is possible and why you want a service provider on your side when disaster hits.
Everyday ransomware finds a new way to slip into an environment, from clicking on the wrong site to a compromised set of credentials. This leaves the very real feeling that you already are or will be infected. But there are ways to make it easier to sleep at night by implementing what we call the impenetrables – the form factors that are resilient ransomware. Veeam offers three ways to protect your data from even the nastiest ransomware attack. Let’s see how they can help give you peace of mind in the face of disaster.
More people than ever are using these products to store business data due to its mobility, moving between computers in the office, at home, and the mobile devices in-between which has made the transition to remote workplaces tenable. With this convenience comes the problem with users' data being exposed to more endpoints and threats than it would have before. These threats not only come in the form of ransomware but misguided users updating the wrong section of a shared resource. Which is why protecting this data has never been more critical.
It sounds made up and when you first hear it described you think, "Does this really mean anything?" I'm sure if you are a seasoned industry guru you are now rolling your eyes at me, but for those in my boat, this article will help you get a deeper grasp of what the Gartner Magic Quadrant is and why you should care, no matter your role at your company.
Now that your Veeam server is better protected, let’s move on to the 3-2-1 Rule. You may ask yourself what is “The 3-2-1 Rule” and why do I care when it comes to ransomware? It's an industry standard for how to protect data and it is your ultimate line of defense system in the fight against ransomware.
Here is something you don’t always think about — protecting your Veeam Backup & Replication console. But even the server backing up your environment needs to be protected from attacks like ransomware and people with the best or malicious intent. This article will discuss some simple ways to lock down your Veeam server to help protect it from internal and external forces.
One of the biggest challenges when backing up data from Microsoft Office 365 was Microsoft's throttling metrics placed on SharePoint Online and OneDrive site data. This throttling is based on per account to a single site. In previous versions of Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365, the backup processing will download data with the one account used to authenticate the organization. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 version 4 added a new feature called auxiliary backup accounts to help mitigate this issue.
