The threat of ransomware is rapidly rising, targeting businesses of all sizes and spreading to multiple victims within corporate networks, as revealed in Intermedia's2016 Crypto-Ransomware Report.
The prominence of these attacks and widely observed downtime (72 percent of victims were unable to access their data for at least 2 days and 32 percent of users lost access to data for 5 days or more) spotlights a widespread gap in business continuity planning. SecuriSync by Intermedia helps address this market void, claiming to be the only enterprise-grade tool on the market that offers the two capabilities necessary for business continuity during a ransomware outbreak.
SecuriSync is a 2-in-1 comprehensive cloud backup and file sync and share (FSS) solution that enables users to remain productive during ransomware attacks. As the only tool businesses need for using, managing and protecting their files, SecuriSync provides companies with the ability to do the two things vital to getting back up and running after a ransomware attack: 1) instantly roll back an archive of files to their uninfected state and 2) give employees immediate access to those uninfected files from alternate devices.
With SecuriSync, ransomware recovery becomes a manageable three-step process:
- Close and isolate the infected computer(s) to prevent further spreading.
- Roll back the user's file archive using an uninfected computer to the moment just before the infection.
- Get the user back to work using an alternate device while the original machine is being wiped and restored.
SecuriSync can be deployed as part of Intermedia's Office in the Cloud suite or as a complement to Office 365 and other IT environments. Pricing for SecuriSync starts at $4.99 per user, per month.
For partners, SecuriSync is gray-labeled so resellers have full control over billing, pricing, support and every other aspect of the customer experience.
