Ransomware attacks are a growing concern across both public and private sectors.
With new operating system vulnerabilities continually being discovered — and variants of malicious code regularly being developed — keeping up a frontline defense against cyberthreats is an overwhelming task. That is why security leaders recommend that integrating data backup and recovery solutions as a part of any organization’s multi-layered cybersecurity strategy.
A recent white paper from Veritas Technologies leans on recommendations from the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework to lay out best practices for a comprehensive data backup strategy. That includes adding capabilities like vision management, identity and access management, immutable storage and data encryption.
When looking for the best data backup and recovery solution, the report recommends that leaders ask themselves some key questions about the vendor they choose to align with, such as:
- Does the solution provide ransomware resiliency at the core, at the edge and in the cloud?
- Does it offer immutable storage whether deployed as bring-your-own-device, appliance, cloud or SaaS?
- Does the solution support the 3-2-1 backup copy rule in every scenario?
“There’s no one-size-fits-all solution,” says the report, which is why organization should look for an approach that allows them the freedom to choose the “best fit for each application’s recovery needs.”
