At Mastermind Data Protection, we know that both your business and home have important data. This could include customer records for the last 5 years or your entire digital photo album and precious memories. If your data is compromised or worse, lost this can cost you a tremendous amount of time and money, not to mention the stress. Mastermind is here to help you prevent this from happening. This is when our Canadian-focused disaster recovery and ransomware protection services are crucial.
Protection Against Ransomware Attacks and Cryptolockers
One of the biggest threats today comes in the form of ransomware. This is a virus that has been designed to completely lock you out of your computer and its network. Then, the perpetrator will demand ransom in order to release your network. There are multiple types of ransomware attacks and one of the most common is called a cryptolocker. This is a type of ransomware attack that is often disguised as an email attachment. Then, when you download the attachment, it encrypts all of your data and documents, preventing you from opening them. The only way that you can decrypt your information is to pay the ransom.
After a ransomware attack has been unleashed, you might think that you can call an IT professional to help you release your information; however, they might not be able to do so. Even if they can, this could take days or even weeks. It is easy to see how this is an expensive problem to rectify. Furthermore, ransomware is only one of the numerous types of malware that are out there.
That is why you need to invest in high-quality ransomware protection. Let us help you with all of your ransomware protection and removal needs. We work hard to stay up to date on the latest threats so that we can keep all of our clients safe from malware attacks.
Premier Canadian Disaster Recovery Service
We also prioritize our disaster recovery service, which is often shortened to DRaaS (disaster recovery as a service). We know that you have worked hard to digitize all of your documents to save space, remove filing cabinets, and save money on storage units; however, digitizing all of your information also presents new vulnerabilities. What happens if all of this digitized data is suddenly lost? Some of the consequences might be:
- Complicated client records and projects are gone, costing you their trust and loyalty
- Human resources documents might be gone forever
- Numerous industries including accounting, dental, real estate, and medicine have complex data protection requirements that might cost someone their professional designation
Losing this data in a natural disaster could be a death sentence for some companies.
That is where Mastermind Data Protection comes in. Most of your files are probably stored on a central hard drive or server to make the business more efficient for multiple users; however, putting all of your eggs in one basket is also risky. Hard drives might fail. Tape backup is costly and inefficient.
That is why our disaster recovery service uses multiple backups at multiple data centers to make sure that your information is protected in the event of a disaster. We use onsite backups and offsite backups, which is called redundancy, to keep your data safe. We protect your company against:
- Accidental deletion
- Snowstorms and blizzards
- Hardware and software failure
In this manner, if your hard drive is compromised, our Canadian disaster recovery service can have your data restored in minutes. With DRaaS, your business will maximize its uptime while minimizing downtime. This gives you the peace of mind that you need to focus on your customers while allowing us to focus on protecting your business.
