For a long time, data backup and antivirus protection have been treated separately and businesses have had to address them as such, choosing one solution for antivirus, malware and ransomware protection, and another solution for backing up data.
But as cyber-crime advances, becoming more pervasive, sophisticated and destructive, vendors have had to make their products increasingly dynamic and more robust to counter new cyber threats. As a result, the nature of data backup solutions and of anti-malware solutions have both changed.
Business development and strategy director of IronTree, Steven Cohen says, “Data backup on its own no longer provides complete protection for your data, and antivirus on its own can’t prevent all forms of cyber-attack.”
However, if you combine data backup software and anti-malware software in a single solution, the two can work together to counter modern cyber threats and enhance data recovery options. Add to this a managed system of automatically updating all relevant business software applications and you’re getting a comprehensive data protection product.
As a result of this thinking, IronTree has launched IronTree Protect, a holistic solution managed within a single intuitive dashboard, that:
- Protects your data from all known forms of malware, including ransomware
- Keeps a copy of your selected data in a remote environment, safe from disruption, corruption and disaster
- Automatically updates/patches your applications, making sure your system has the latest updated software – a critical element in being protected
Because this product combines data backup, malware protection and patch management in one, you can control both the preventative and recovery aspects of your environment at once.
IronTree Protect operates from a single console screen, where you can see:
- All your devices on a single web management console
- Which devices are at risk
- Which devices have been backed up and when
It also allows you to deploy patches to applications running on all devices.
Cohen remembers the time when “we used to update our software just to have the latest features.” Those days are gone. We now need to constantly update our software to remain safe from new forms of cyber-attack.
As Cohen says, “In an increasingly complex, noisy world, being able to check your devices and their statuses at a glance gives you a continuous sense of control that puts your mind at ease while you get on with running your business.”
