Integrated Cybersecurity and Data Backup Solutions: Crucial to Ransomware Recovery

JANUARY 25TH, 2024

If you’re an IT pro in a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) responsible for data protection—including cybersecurity and data backup solutions—you’ve got plenty on your plate these days. 

A recent report from Sophos found that 62 percent of SMEs were hit by ransomware in the last year. Attacks come in many forms, including exploited vulnerabilities, compromised credentials, malicious emails, and phishing. Although less frequent, natural disasters such as floods, fires, and earthquakes also threaten your physical infrastructure and lead to catastrophic data loss.

Regardless of the cause, the cost of recovery is incredibly high. Sophos reports the mean cost was $1.82 million, excluding ransoms paid. Add it all up, and it makes more sense than ever to ensure your data protection solutions meet your needs when they’re needed most: following a data disaster.

Ensuring comprehensive data protection demands that your cybersecurity and backup solutions are perfectly aligned. This alignment enhances your ability to defend against cyberattacks while ensuring fast recovery if those efforts fail and you fall victim to data loss or a system compromise.

Start With Strong Cybersecurity Solutions

Your cybersecurity solutions are your first line of defense against external threats, providing vital protection for your network, systems, and data against unauthorized access, exploitation, and theft. 

Implementing advanced cybersecurity solutions like Sophos Intercept X Advanced for Server offers comprehensive protection, including anti-ransomware capabilities, exploit prevention, and deep-learning malware detection. Sophos is a cybersecurity leader because its solutions can identify and neutralize threats before they can cause harm.
