BackupAssist v11 includes enhancements across its CryptoSafeGuard ransomware solution, password protection, and S3 compatible destinations, as well as the introduction of its Cyber Black Box.
Cyber Black Box collects and stores logs and data that can serve as additional evidence in digital forensic investigations. The evidence provided by the Cyber Black Box can assist a business in submitting a cyber insurance claim, and recouping expenses resulting from customer notification, data restoration, and IT repairs, as well as associated legal fees.
In addition, Cybercrime Forensic Investigators now have another tool that can help them to trace and prosecute cyber criminals, around the globe.
CryptoSafeGuard expands shielding of protected files from ransomware to include BackupAssist configuration and Cyber Black Box forensic logs. It provides extra mitigations against ransomware from corrupting backup configuration files or attempts to sabotage the backups.
Further, the latest version allows the administrator to set additional administration console access passwords. It also offers support for S3 compatible cloud storage for offsite backups.
Existing BackupAssist clients can upgrade to v11 free of charge, as part of their current BackupCare subscription.
