Cybercrime and the scourge of ransomware break through the best defenses, even if you have layered security in place. Hackers are often after your data, corrupting it through viruses and malware, and locking it up for payment through ransomware.
Your layered security service is not complete unless you can take a last stand – protecting data by full, uncorrupted copies of everything your clients depend on that are available fast, avoiding business crippling downtime.
As an MSP, most of your clients probably have some form of backup, and if not, it is something you should clearly rectify. But having backup does not mean data is fully protected. Disk and especially tape backup is prone to failure during recovery, meaning data is lost forever. And Windows-based backup devices can be infected by ransomware just like your client’s endpoints. Again, the data is gone forever.
Mike Sanders, CEO of Unitrends MSP, has helped thousands of MSPs fully and completely protect client data for years, and understands why backup is truly the last line of defense and how MSPs should best protect clients from the unfortunate reality of cybercrime. This white paper reflects the insights Sanders developed from years of backup experience.
