One of the most effective weapons against cybercriminals might reside in a recycle bin.

Cybercriminals are getting smarter and more persistent every day. According to one estimate, hackers attempt a ransomware attack every 11 seconds. Before an attack, it’s now common for cybercriminals to steal your credentials and delete your backup files, creating a catastrophic situation where your primary data is encrypted and the backup data you planned to use to recover from is gone forever.

Make your backups impenetrable.

With FirstLight’s Insider Protection, recently deleted backup files reside in an off-site recycle bin for a minimum of 7 days. This repository serves as a lockbox that is inaccessible to hackers or malicious insiders. To retrieve deleted backup files, simply call and verify your identity with FirstLight’s cloud operations team, and recover your data. It’s that easy.

Insider Protection from FirstLight

  • Protects against accidental deletion
    Deleted backups stay in an off-site recycle bin for seven days.
  • Defends against sophisticated or malicious attacks
    In the event of a coordinated attack, hackers can no longer render backups unusable for recovery.
  • Provides protection from misconfigured retention policies
    If someone on your team misconfigures a retention policy, you’re covered.
  • Bars outside users from accessing the recycle bin
    Deleted archives are hack-proof and accessible ONLY from the provider side.
  • Powered by Veeam, a trusted source in backup and disaster recovery.

Peace of mind for about the price of a double espresso.

With Insider Protection, backup files in your recycle bin won’t use up your cloud storage quota. At just $5 per virtual machine per month, it’s money well spent for peace of mind and a tool that could turn a ransomware attack into a ransomware attempt.
