In contrast to copies and synchronization, professional data backups are not at risk of malware attacks.
Agoura Hills / (CA) USA, April 12, 2011 –/BackupReview.info/– In light of a new malware attack, reported by Kaspersky lab and titled, â€œGPCode Ransomware,â€ data protection specialist NovaStor points out the importance of professional data backups with NovaBACKUP in order to recover files after a malware attack.
Backups Protect Against Malware Threats
In addition, if data has been copied or synchronized, the GPCode malware attack also infects this copied or synchronized data. Processes such as copying and synchronization overwrite the readable backup data with the malware-encrypted files, thus, disabling the user from accessing these files. This is why it is essential for important data to always be backed up to a separate location and not simply just copied or sychronized.
Only professional backup software enables users to reconstruct malware infested files, based on their most recent backup. It is recommended to carry out regular incremental backups after the initial full backup. Should data infected by malware be included in the backup, it only affects the most recent incremental backup. All previously saved data will remain available and can be reconstructed immediately, therefore, when a ransomware attack such as GPCode asks for money, the ransom payment will be rendered unnecessary.
â€œMany users and businesses only copy or synchronize their data, but the benefits of a professional data backup also lie in automation, the economical use of storage resources and being able to recover your most recently backed up files. Numerous file encrypting scenarios such as malware attacks can happen. In all these cases, using professional backup software with version tracking pays off,â€ says Stefan Utzinger, CEO at NovaStor.
