SolarWinds Shares Golden Tips on How to Back Up Your Data on World Backup Day…

By: Sascha Giese, Head Geek™ at SolarWinds In 2021, the number of ransomware attacks doubled compared to 2019.

But what if the digital firewall fails or you get hit by a worst-case scenario attack? Then only a backup can help.    One year ago, in Strasbourg on the Rhine, a data center was hit by a worst-case attack, and the cloud provider lost the data of thousands of customers. Unlike a ransomware attack, this data can’t be recovered by paying a ransom—it’s gone unless you have a backup.    If you haven’t considered it before, on World Backup Day it’s time to think about how you’re backing up your data and keeping your ......read more
