Smile Backup Authored Content
Ransomware works by entering a system through malware, usually via phishing in emails. Once the malware is on the system, it usually shows a fake error message asking the user not to shut down the computer; while this is happening, the system is being methodically encrypted without your permission. Obviously, encryption is incredibly difficult to overcome, with some strains such as Lockeye and WannaCry variants taking potentially hundreds of years to decode. The user is left with two options; pay the ransom, or wipe the system and start over. But if the system is backed up to a remote location using the Smile Backup service, then all files can be restored remotely, without having to pay the ransom.
Most companies will just look past threats that are actively destroying businesses and think “it’ll never happen to us, we’re protected” until it does eventually pierce a hole into your network and it’s then too late. Unfortunately, no company is safe from Ransomware; every year charities, doctors, even schools get affected by this cyber-threat, and it shows no sign of slowing down. We’re extremely competitive in what we provide; a great fully supported, bespoke backup solution. It not only keeps separate versions of your data for 30 days on the introductory package, but it also encrypts the data using our specialised military grade AES encryption. If your data was breached then there is no way it could be used or even opened. For the average price that you pay for satellite TV, you can backup your companies data to prevent anything malicious ever destroying your business, from human error or Ransomware.
