What is Cyber-Resilience? How are backups key?

the ability to recover from an adverse event.
“The right backup gives you a successful and predictable recovery.”

Organizations need cyber-resilience

Almost every organization relies on I.T. infrastructure to function – and that infrastructure can be damaged or sabotaged by:

  • hacking, ransomware and other forms of cyber attack
  • physical destruction – fire, flood, earthquake
  • theft
  • hardware failures
  • user deletions – accidentally or intentionally.

In all cases, the surest path to resilience is the right backup strategy.

Backups need cyber-resilience too

Backups must also be cyber-resilient – that is, able to withstand attack by cyber criminals. Our CryptoSafeGuard and Cyber Black Box features are industry first cyber-security features that make backups resilient.

What makes the right Windows Server Backup Software?

For Windows Servers, the availability of the server and the applications and data on it are solely your responsibility. Therefore, the right backup and recovery software must provide comprehensive backup and recovery options.

Backup Capabilities

  • Full server backups, including (where applicable) Active Directory, Hyper-V, Exchange Server, SQL Server.
  • File based backups with version history.
  • Back up to different destinations: USB HDD, NAS, Cloud storage, RDX.
  • Variety of onsite, offsite and offline recovery points.
  • Multiple backups and backup types for multiple layers of protection.
  • Safeguards that protect the backups from corruption by ransomware.

Recovery and Retention

  • Full server recovery (to same or dissimilar hardware) – for business continuity with minimal downtime.
  • Point-in-time recovery of files and folders.
  • Granular restore of lost emails, contacts, notes.
  • Long-term data retention to satisfy compliance obligations.
  • Encryption for sensitive backup data to secure against data breach.
  • You control where your data is, 100% of the time.

Cyber-security focus

  • Features to protect the backups from ransomware attack
  • Alerts when suspicious activities affecting the backups are detected
  • Securing backup configuration changes against unauthorized modifications
  • Forensic activity logging to assist in cyber investigations and help prevent repeat attacks

What makes the right Office 365 Backup Software?

For Office 365, Microsoft provides guarantees of service availability, and provides some limited versioning and data retention (by default, 14 days of deleted emails and 93 days of deleted files in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business). Other cloud providers of hosted Exchange and IMAP mailboxes generally offer something similar.

The right backup software solution for Office 365, hosted Exchange and hosted files should provide superior data backup and recovery options.

Backup Capabilities

  • Backup of Office 365 mailboxes, hosted Exchange, IMAP mailboxes.
  • Backup SharePoint documents.
  • Backup OneDrive for Business.
  • Ability to store backups offline to combat hacking and sabotage.

Recovery and Data Retention

  • File versioning and deleted item retention.
  • Point-in-time recovery of files and folders.
  • Granular recovery of individual emails, contacts, calendar items, notes, etc.
  • Long-term data retention to satisfy compliance obligations.
  • Encryption for sensitive backup data to secure against data breach.
  • And importantly, it should fit within your budget.
  • You control where your data is, 100% of the time.
