According to Gartner, “by 2025, at least 75% of IT organizations will face one or more attacks, as free-rein researchers document a dramatic increase in ransomware attacks during 2020, pointing to sevenfold or higher rates of growth”. What’s even more alarming is that recent attacks are specifically targeting backup data and administrator functions, which are arguably your last line of defense.
With that said, Gartner feels that ransomware recovery capabilities are a must-have when evaluating backup platforms. In this report, they assess new features that aid in detecting ransomware attacks, protecting backup repositories, and accelerating recovery.
In this report, Gartner covers:
Current backup system vulnerabilities
Early detection of ransomware attacks
How backup can protect you against ransomware
What to look for in modern backup and recovery solutions
