Protect Your SAP Business One Data from Ransomware

Published on 19th July, 2017 in SAP Business One, Small Business by Jerry Eisinger

Despite the best efforts of security, ransomware continues to be a threat to your servers and your SAP Business One system.  Hackers are able to exploit operating systems to lock up your data and demand payment to release it.  There have been reported incidents of this happening in the SAP community, so the threat is real.

To protect your SAP Business One system and data, we recommend that each customer reviews their Backup and Disaster / Recovery procedures to reduce this risk.  Doing daily backups to your local server is not enough!  We encourage you to work with your IT infrastructure experts to ensure proper procedures are being followed.

If you don’t have anything in place and are interested, we offer off-site backups and disaster recovery services from Infrascale.  Their Data Protection Cloud software and service backs up your software and business data directly to the cloud, so in the event of a ransomware attack you can restore your solution with minimal loss and downtime.

To learn more about Infrascale services and costs for your SAP Business One environment, please contact Aether Consulting.
