    VMblog's Expert Interviews: BackupAssist Talks A Two-Pronged Approach to Safeguarding Data from Ransomware
    You do not need to be in high tech to be well aware of the mounting threat of ransomware, and the growing frustration around how to successfully combat it.  It seems that even the FBI lacks a truly effective solution. Joseph Bonavolonta, a Boston-based cyber and counterintelligence specialist at the FBI, told attendees at a recent security conference: "To be honest, we often advise people to just pay the ransom.

    BackupAssist Launches CryptoSafeGuard Ransomware Protection
    The industry has been seeing attacks in which malicious software invades end-user PCs and encrypts user files. This type of attack is described as "ransomware." The end-user or the organization is offered the key to decrypt the files, for a price. If the price is paid, the key is not always provided. The WannaCry ransomware attack is a recent example. BackupAssist believes that it has a solution, CryptoSafeGuard, for this problem for mid-market organizations using Windows software. CryptoSafeGuard monitors end-user systems while backing up changing data files. If it observes an attempt to rapidly change entire directories or entire filesystems, it steps in to protect the off-system backups, notify administrators and restore the previous environment. Here's how the company describes CryptoSafeGuard:
