It is not a novel secret about an organization being under a ransom attack. In fact, a business is hit with ransomware every 40 seconds, according to some reports. However, If ransomware gets hold of an organization data, they may have to pay a large sum of money or the bitcoins to get the data back. Whether an organization pays the ransom or not, they lose a hefty amount of time and resources dealing with the aftermath. Microsoft invests in several ways to help you mitigate the effects of ransomware. Azure Backup is one of those several ways.
With Azure Backup, Microsoft is changing the ransom story. It has implemented a new and proactive mechanism to protect an organization and its data in Azure and on-premise from these deliberate attacks.
