Building a business that is Ransomware Resilient

What “ransomware resilient” really means

Running a business is more challenging right now than it has ever been.

In this new era of remote working, employees are often scattered across many disparate locations. Companies are tasked with managing people who are working all over the world, in different places at different times – not to mention using different technology.

This means it’s crucial to have an IT infrastructure that’s agile and resilient against ransomware. Today’s attackers have numerous endpoints through which they can infiltrate your business. With so many people now working remotely, it’s difficult to not only manage your employees’ data but ensure their devices remain safe from vulnerabilities.

What you really need is a comprehensive process to secure your business. You have to protect your users, no matter where they are; detect threats, quickly and efficiently; and recover without delay if your business is ever attacked.

It’s a lot to handle. But we can help.


SMB agility with Backup Exec

To keep your business secure, the first thing you need is an IT solution that will keep your organization agile in the face of ransomware threats.

Thankfully, that’s exactly what you get with Backup Exec, from Veritas. Backup Exec gives you fast, simple, complete, and cost-effective protection for your users and your data. It also ensures you’re able to respond and recover quickly, in case of an attack.

There are numerous benefits to this approach. For instance, the ability to manage your entire data ecosystem from a single console - no need for multiple point products. Instead, you can simply handle everything with a few clicks of the mouse, whether it’s coordinating a backup job or tracking replication or recovery efforts.

The guiding philosophy behind Backup Exec is that data protection should be simple, secure, and unified. You should be able to choose what files you back up, where you store them, and how you pay for it. Veritas’ model gives you the freedom to control all of the above while ensuring your data is secure and available to you at all times.


Enterprise resiliency with NetBackup

To build a business that’s more resilient, you need a way of backing up your data so you’re able to quickly recover it whenever necessary.

To build a business that’s more resilient, you need a way of backing up your data so you’re able to quickly recover it whenever necessary.

The idea behind NetBackup is that resiliency is paramount for any business. You can’t 100% prevent cyberattacks in this day and age – threats are so prevalent that there’s just no stopping all of them. But what you can do is put the right IT safeguards in place so that when an attack does happen, you have a seamless process for getting your data back and keeping your people productive.

NetBackup does that. Veritas understands that resiliency is the best defense possible – your goal shouldn’t just be disaster recovery, it should be a holistic view of application and data availability. NetBackup, in conjunction with Veritas’ enterprise data services platform, will give you that view, ensuring long-term operational resiliency in the face of any malicious activity.


Plan for disaster recovery with Zones

The truth is, many companies’ disaster recovery strategy tends to miss the mark. Often, they’re too complex, using many different servers and applications spread across disparate locations. Or, they’re slow and unreliable in the face of an attack. Or, they have inefficiencies when it comes to “dark data” – files that companies store and maintain even though they add no value to the business. The list of issues goes on and on.

At Zones, we offer disaster recovery planning and maintenance services that help to address all of these issues. For starters, we put the cloud at the forefront, which makes for easier management and simplified disaster recovery. This makes it better for everyone to control their data – your management, your IT specialists, and of course your end-users. Thanks to our strong OEM partnerships, most notably including Veritas, we’re well-positioned to achieve this.

Over the years, we’ve seen all too many times that our clients have a clear need to improve their disaster recovery planning. In fact, our research shows that nearly 50% of mid-market firms have poor DR plans in place today. In today’s climate, this is unacceptable – and at Zones, we have everything it takes to help. We have a proven track record of designing and implementing DR solutions that work.
