Protect Your Backup from Ransomware
Many ransomware strains such as WannaCry, already have the ability to remove both system restore points and your Windows backups altogether.
Rather worryingly, experts also suggest that ransomware is expected to increasingly target backup files in the future.
CryptoSafeGuard is a proprietary technology that helps protect your backups so that your business can be recovered even after a ransomeware attack.
CryptoSafeGuard to the Rescue!
The CryptoSafeGuard feature is designed to do four important jobs:
CryptoSafeGuard executes a detection scan before running each backup, using a combination of complementary scan algorithms and signature based checks to detect infection.
It scans the system, and the specific backup job's selections, using a hierarchical approach so that the slower in-depth checks only happen on the smallest number of files possible.
If an infection is detected, immediate action is taken:
When a backup is executed, CryptoSafeGuard initiates write locking on each specific backup job's backup location (path).
The CryptoSafeGuard protector prevents unauthorized processes on the BackupAssist machine from writing to the backup.
It does not prevent other machines from writing to the backup - CryptoSafeGuard is not a replacement for good security practices.
The protection means that only BackupAssist processes can create, modify, or delete files at the backup location.
Please Note:CryptoSafeGuard is NOT a replacement for your traditional antivirus and/or anti-malware applications - it's to be treated as an extra layer of protection.
