Wolberry ransomware defence using Sony ODA

Ransomware attacks are rising in 2019 and your best defence is to use Sony ODA storage media in your backup solutions. Eurofins, the biggest supplier of forensic analysis services to the police and security services in the UK has paid hundreds of thousands of pounds to cyber-criminals to regain access to computer systems after a ransomware attack.

Ransomware is a form of malware or a virus that prevents users from accessing their systems or data until a sum of money is paid. Apart from paying the ransom, a good backup strategy is the only defence a company has against this sort of attack.

Sony Optical Disc Archive (ODA) backup systems are the best defence against ransomware for many reasons:

  1. Once the data is written on Sony ODA media it cannot be changed making it safe from ransomware attack
  2. Sony ODA error rate is the lowest in the industry, so you can be sure you can recover your data virtually error-free from a backup
  3. You can access your data in any random order like a hard disk giving you the freedom to recover as much information as you need after a ransomware attack
  4. It has fast transfer rates too, making it quicker than downloading data from the cloud on slow internet connections
  5. Unlike LTO tape media it does not need expensive, controlled environmental conditions, making it eco-friendly
  6. It’s simple to use, making it ideal for any size of business
  7. It can handle small, medium and enterprise data volumes from 3.3TB to 1.7PB storage capacity range systems of a USB drive or PetaSite rack system. More data storage capacity can be added if needed.
  8. Sony ODA media are certified for industry leading backup solutions including Veritas NetBackup, ArcServer, NetApp Storage Grid and many others.

The average cost of a ransomware attack on businesses was $133,000 and even companies running up-to-date endpoint protection are not safe (Source: Sophos). Your Sony ODA backup solution could be the best investment you make in your business this year!
