5 Elements of Recovery in Cyber Protection for MSPs

In our series of posts on Cyber Protection for MSPs, we talked about how MSPs should adopt a cyber protection plan enforcing elements featured in the Prevention, Detection and Response stages.

MSPs can continue on an effective cyber protection drive by next focusing on Stage 4: Recovery. Quickly and safely restore data from known, accurate backups in the event it gets compromised by implementing the following elements:

  1. Remove malware from backup. Scanning full-disk backups at a centralized location helps find potential vulnerabilities and malware infections – ensuring users can restore a malware-free backup.
  2. Instant ‘in-place’ recovery of affected data. Instant recovery allows a backup snapshot to run temporarily as a virtual machine on secondary storage after a failure or disaster occurs.
  3. Safe recovery. Patching and applying the latest anti-malware definitions allows users to restore the OS image with the latest patches thereby reducing the chance of a reoccurring infection.
  4. Automation. Having the ability to configure all workflow areas automatically – at a process, application, or infrastructure level – reduces manual dependencies.
  5. Email archiving and recovery. Preserve and keep or recover business-critical emails.
