PROMO If you’re still not convinced of the need to re-examine your whole approach to file management, perhaps a ransomware attack will change your mind.

Ransomware merchants don’t just rely on working their way into your systems and locking your data. They know that any company large enough to pay a reasonable ransom will have a backup system in place. Which is why if they get the opportunity, they’ll happily bide their time, crippling your data protection systems well before they put the full lock on your production systems.

But even if they don’t hijack your data protection systems, they know restoring traditional backups is a laborious process that’s going to take hours, days or even weeks. And they know that a few millions in ransomware suddenly starts to look like a good deal as compared to the hundreds of thousands of dollars that downtime costs for even medium-sized enterprises.

 The old rules of data protection simply don’t apply anymore, which is why you should register (for free!) for Nasuni CloundBound21, which runs online from September 28th to 30th.
