Proper backup will protect you from ransomware extortion, but only if you do it right, and that means backups must be vaulted, versioned, verified and automated.
An infected computer can spread the infection to USB attached or 'mapped' drives and thumb drives, network file shares or even cloud drives that appear as network drives and other connected computers.
Ransomware can delete Windows volume shadow copies (VSS) or System Restore functions you might otherwise deploy.

BaQapp offers de-duplication where identical files even from different endpoints are only copied once, saving storage space.
BaQapp compresses the amount of data with block level deduplication, or Delta copying with only changes stored. If recovery is required the file system will combine the parts of the file to make a full restore.
An image of a hard drive is an exact copy of the drive that can be used to quickly and completely restore everything; settings, fonts, desktop, programs. BaQapp's default settings makes an exact full image of each drive every 30 days, and then every 7 days stores only the changes, known as incremental backups.
BaQapp stores the backups in a non-proprietary format, with the ability to restore the data using standard tools, as long as you have the encryption key.
BaQapp easily copies or clones all its backup data to another attached drive(s), which can be stored offsite. Attaching the drive to the BaQappBoxx updates automatically.
Setting up BaQapp to send you email reports is easy. Just enter your email address when configuring BaQapp.
Default reporting includes weekly global email reports on all the endpoints that should be backed up,drawing attention to any endpoint backups that are more than 10 days overdue by email.
The BaQapp monitoring service generates email reports from data generated and sent by the user's BaQapp software on BaQapp's Microsoft Azure server. If the BaQapp system stops operating, users will still receive reports, noting that no reports are being received.
For real peace of mind, if your mobile phone number is entered when configuring BaQapp, you will receive a SMS reminder if backups are a few weeks behind.
BaQapp Pty Ltd has no access to your data. The monitoring system only receives an extract of the backup report text file, which contains only the endpoints last file and image backup dates.
BaQapp will backup multiple endpoints, unlike many other network backup systems that can charge
$50.00 and more per seat or endpoint.
Users of BaQapp can make Global settings covering all the endpoints, or customise each endpoint,
or give a user access privileges to configure their own settings.
