Commvault GO: Ransomware Threats and How Data Backup and Recovery Can Save Your Business

Commvault GO: Ransomware Threats and How Data Backup and Recovery Can Save Your Business

This year, at the Commvault GO 2018 Consumer Conference, Solutions Review CEO and Founder Doug Atkinson sat down with Lance Shaw. Mr. Shaw is Director of Solutions Marketing at data protection solution provider Commvault. Together, they discuss ransomware threats and how data backup and recovery can save your business.

Ransomware is one of the strongest arguments for endpoint security, mobile security, and data backup and recovery solutions for the enterprise. Mr. Shaw points out in the early days most large businesses believed they were digitally untouchable—no hacker would dare attempt to use ransomware on them. Fast forward to today, and enterprises large and small alike are being bombarded with ransomware attacks made easier with the advent of bots.

Ransomware will happen, as Mr. Shaw says. It is no longer an “if.” Hackers are increasingly professionalizing and turning ransomware from a hobby into a career. Part of this transition is also in stealing personal data and monetizing it rather than simply holding it for ransom.

Backup and disaster recovery is one part of the cybersecurity platform, as essential as endpoint security in the modern age.
