Protection from ransomware

Ransomware is a subset of malware designed to target individuals or organizations. Attackers gain full control of the system and restrict access to personal and confidential files unless a ransom is paid. More complicated than malware, it locks up the system files and encrypts them, affecting personal computers, tablets, or smartphones, until a ransom is paid to unlock the system.

How SaskTel Cloud Backup protects you from ransomware:

  • Automatically detects the presence of abnormal file activity on your computer, desktop, or server
  • File activities are checked every 5 minutes and abnormal activity is reported by an alert and event
  • A message will display indicating an irregularity in the amount of file activity detected
  • Ransomware can be cleared and data restored from a recent backup

“Around 25 per cent of all businesses will be targeted by hackers at some point. Additionally, 60 per cent of those stores that are not insured do not recover and close within six months. Small shops are often the biggest target.”

— Greg Marcyniuk with Heritage Insurance
