How to Protect Your Storage Against Ransomware
As mentioned above, we're a storage company here to keep your data secure, and a big threat to security is ransomware. However, there are a few other concerns, such as accidental and malicious deletion by an inside party. One thing all these concerns have in common is the solution—snapshotting. 
45Drives President and Co-Founder Doug Milburn has stepped in front of the camera to tell us why this concern should be on your radar, give us an overview of snapshotting and how to use modern copy-on-write file systems to give you a level of protection that will allow you to sleep better at night.
