Protect your data. Protect your company. Enhance your backup before it is too late.
On March 9, Panda released an upgrade to their Antivirus software – a standard update. Unfortunately, the update flagged core files as viral. So, after reboot, not only did Panda Antivirus not work, but all applications depending on DLL’s also did not work. The result was what we call in the business, a bricked PC. Essentially, thousands of computers became useless for two days due to an inability to run correctly. Businesses lost up to 2 days of productivity. Click this link to read the whole story.
The best protection from errant antivirus upgrades is a good recovery system, like Triella’s Business Continuity Backup system called Becon Backup™. The system not obly can back up servers, but desktop computers too. Here is how the system protects you from errant Antivirus updates:
- The complete computer is backup up as an image so it can be restored to replace the damaged image from the antivirus upgrade.
- The data is stored off site and on site. Thus, there are two sources from which to recover the data, the fast on site backup, literally recoverable in seconds, and the Cloud based backup which would take longer.
- Frequent backups also help. Backing up as frequently as hourly means that you can dial back granularly from the point of infection minimizing your loss of data.
- A computer can be virtually recovered on the backup appliance so that the entire company is not dead in the water. Using the virtual computer would give immediate access to files until the other computers were recovered..
