WannaCry Ransomware Protection

Don’t be held to ransom. Recover your systems quickly, whenever you want.

Correct backup and recovery, delivered by Bacula Enterprise Edition is one of the most fundamental and reliable strategies you can use to protect your company against Ransomware and other cyber attacks. Ransomware shuts down 1 in 5 small businesses after it hits. Bacula Enterprise Edition’s special architecture builds in advanced layers of security to guard against these threats, probably making it the most trusted enterprise backup and recovery solution in the world. For example, its volumes are not accessible from the running client systems, keeping them safe from attack. This as opposed to other backup solutions which write to file shares, meaning they can be affected. Instead, Bacula leads the industry in guarding against this with its advanced, modern architecture and segregated storage. In addition, Bacula provides many powerful options to help you with your offline and offsite backup strategy. For these and other reasons, some of the worlds largest security organizations rely on Bacula Enterprise Edition to backup and easily recover their critical data. Contact us to find out more.
