5. Long backup and recovery cycles adding to your ransomware pain
If your enterprise relies on legacy backup that require synthetic fulls and falls victim to a ransomware attack, your IT team can spend days (even weeks!) in recovery mode. A recent Ponemon Institute report puts the average cost of a single ransomware attack at $5 million due primarily to productivity loss, systems downtime, and theft of information. What’s needed is a backup and recovery solution that responds fast to ransomware attacks and lets you quickly locate and delete infected files across your global data footprint – including the public clouds. Also needed is instant mass restore capabilities, which enable recovery of hundreds of virtual machines instantly, at scale, and to any point in time.
