The Role of Cloud Backup and Recovery in Protecting Against Ransomware Attacks
Ransomware has targeted small and large organizations alike, and is increasingly going after next-generation applications that run on databases such as Cassandra and MongoDB, or even data lakes that run on big data filesystems such as Hadoop. These can be high value targets for attackers, and the security processes and tools aren’t in place to defend them.
This white paper will explore four topics:
- How ransomware has become a significant problem for next-generation applications
- The crucial role cloud backup and recovery plays in providing a layer of defense
- The challenge of backup and recovery for next generation applications
- How Datos IO’s application-centric cloud data management solution addresses these challenges
