16 % routinely test by restoring and testing functionality . However , just over half ( 52 %) of organisations first restored to an isolated sandbox before recovering data after a ransomware attack .
“ While it ’ s becoming increasingly common for ‘ production ’ to outpace ‘ protection ’, the growing gap between what organisations expect and what IT is placed to deliver is worrying ,” said Dan Middleton , Vice President UK and Ireland , Veeam . “ Add in the fact that ransomware is almost a guaranteed threat that every organisation must prepare for and we are clearly headed for a data protection emergency .

While companies report that 47 % of data centre servers , 50 % of remote offices and 44 % of cloud instances are impacted in an attack , paying the ransom is not a recovery strategy .

“ But what ’ s more concerning is the effectiveness of attackers to proactively destroy their victim ’ s data backup repositories . To protect your data , you need a secure , immutable backup in place as your last line of defence and while IT departments are under pressure to cut costs , data protection budgets should never be reduced .
“ It ’ s a false economy to think you can save money on your data protection strategies . Instead , by investing wisely and taking a modern approach to data protection , you not only gain an advantage over attackers but also increase business resiliency which can give you the edge over competitors .” u
