“It is inevitable that every organisation will experience cybercrime at some point in its lifetime. […] Businesses need to invest in new technologies to ensure they gain an edge against cyber criminals.”

Protecting your data against cyber-attacks
All companies, regardless of their size or activity, store and handle confidential information that is often in the form of electronic data. Data has become one of the most important assets of your company, as it holds exclusive intellectual, competitive and economic value. Hence, it’s not surprising that this is exactly what the cyber criminals are after and why we’re seeing more cyber-attacks globally.
It’s essential to protect your company’s business-critical data (which according to IDC, 60% are found in emails only) against cyber-attacks such as ransomware. Fady Younes, Cybersecurity Sales Director, Cisco, discusses the main risks of our daily electronic communications and provides practical tips on how to prevent attacks and how to protect your emails. see full article here.
Email Archiving as Business Continuity
In the event of a cyber-attack, whilst you focus on dealing with the fallout, you’re also focused on getting back to normal operations as quickly as possible. What most companies aren’t aware of is that having a dedicated email archiving solution is part of a sound Business Continuity Plan (BCP).
You are likely to run some type of a backup solution at your organisation. A backup solution typically takes a snapshot of your environment at specific time frames only, whilst email archiving solution such as Cryoserver captures an identical copy of all your emails in real time, not just snapshots at specific intervals. This allows your company to do a swift ‘restoration’ of your most updated and business-critical data, your business emails, should you unfortunately become a victim of a cyber-attack. This is one of the ways how Cryoserver works in the background to safeguard your email environment.
