Cloud Data Management Platform
Protect your company and personal data from Ransomware, hard drive failures and many other threads through Redstor cloud backups:
Redstor is an complete automated once-off installed and configured software programs that when configured automatically backs up the daily selected data, decrypts the data twice for security reasons (Hackers and ransomware) and start uploading the data at a very low transfer data rate to not affect the internet speed at all, and then send the secured data to cloud server in Cape Town and another copy mirrored to Johannesburg server, if the cloud backup was not successful then Kalahari 24/7 will be informed with the client details and this happens on a daily basis.
What is Ransomware?
Ransomware is malicious software that infects a computer, network or data. Your computer will either be locked or your data encrypted, held hostage, and the only way you can regain access is by paying a ‘ransom’.
How Ransomware Spreads
There are four common ways that ransomware can gain access to your computer: spam emails, infected removable drives, being bundled with other software or accessing compromised web pages.
In today’s connected age with practices like BYOD, mobile devices, wearables and personal drives, organizations’ networks are more vulnerable than ever.
Counting the Cost of a Ransomware Attack
In the event of an attack, it might seem easiest to just pay the ransom. Sadly, this isn’t always effective: not all ransomware behaves as expected. The decryption might fail or a second higher ransom fee might be demanded, resulting in your organization losing more than just the ransom money. Loss of revenue and the reputational damage caused by delayed operations and service delivery, not to mention lost data, could be irreparable.
