Hi Dennis,

 

Yes, it is about having the ability to go back in time and select a revision pre-attack. Here are some resources for you to check out:

How does my Barracuda Backup Server with could storage protect me against data loss if I get hit with ransomware?

 

I believe I know the answer to this question, but I don't want to assume anything when it comes to backups.

 

My understanding (right or wrong) is our backups are basically versioned by the the timestamp of the backup. If I got hit with ransomeware, I could go to the Restore Browser and change the date and time to a period before the attack and restore good data.

 

Most of my backups use the typical methodology of monthly, weekly, daily backups utilizing retention periods that meet our policies. 

 

Our SQL servers are set to Full recovery and are backed up every hour using Barracudas Smart backup type with a Minimum threshold of 1 day and a Maximum threshold of 2 days.

 

Our Exchange server DB is backed up once a day using the Smart backup type and the Minimum threshold at 7 days and the Maximum threshold at 8 days. We also do a message level backup every 12 hours utilizing the same Smart backup type settings.

 

Am I missing the boat here or do I at least have a life preserver in the water to hold onto?
