Is backup the ransomware silver bullet?

In this episode, Druva experts discuss whether or not data protection is the silver bullet to stop all ransomware. The short answer: no, it’s not.

We start by discussing another podcast that suggested backup vendors think WE are the solution to ransomware. We don’t. Then we delve into why we do think backup and DR are an important part of defending against ransomware. We also examine whether these are more important than some other tools, before covering some of the things Druva specifically has done to target ransomware. We also talk about ransomware attacks where backup can’t help, as well as discussing other tools that can bolster your defense.

We conclude with a “last dollar” question: if you only had $1 left, do you spend it on backup or user training? I’ll bet you know how both hosts answered.
