How can you protect your data from ransomware


Protect your data from ransomware attacks 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has identified ransomware as one of the fastest growing threats to businesses in the nation.

71% of all ransomware attacks in 2018 targeted small businesses with an average ransom demand of $116,000, based on a study from Beazley Breach Response Services.  Small-to-medium sized businesses, which tend to spend less on information security, were at a higher risk of being hit by ransomware than larger firms.

Buffalo’s TeraStation 6000 Network Storage Solution can be an important part of your ransomware strategy. Businesses need a multi-point ransomware strategy to proactively protect data from constant threats.

Snapshot Protection

The TS6000 network storage device includes comprehensive back up features and supports point-in-time snapshots.  Organizations can protect important data, restore files, and avoid downtime. In the event of a ransomware attack or other unexpected data loss situations, TS6000 allows users to restore data from specific points in time.

Be Prepared When Ransomware Attacks Occur

The best measure of ransomware protection is a robust backup strategy. Buffalo is widely regarded as the most secure NAS on the market today due to our closed operating system. The TS6000 includes comprehensive backup options featuring snapshot capabilities to ensure data can be restored in a timely manner in the event of a ransomware attack.

Prevent Data Loss due to Human Error

The leading reason for data loss is human error with accidental data deletion being the most responsible culprit. TeraStation 6000 allows users to restore data from the most recent point in time prior to the errant deletion.


Recover from Disaster

Industry standard data practices state businesses should have at least three copies of their data stored on a minimum of two different systems with at least one copy of the data residing offsite to avoid significant business disruption.

TeraStation 6000 includes offsite data backup software. Replicating data from the primary TeraStation 6000 to an offsite TeraStation 6000 creates a private cloud scenario and ensures businesses are in line with best data storage practices.

In the event of a disaster, updated files from the offsite TeraStation 6000 can be used to restore data. Snapshot further enhances the disaster recovery solution by allowing businesses to be more specific with the data that needs to be recovered.
