Everyone knows that the quickest way to recover from a ransomware attack is to restore from backup. It sounds simple enough, but the actual restore process can be complex, not to mention slow.
If a ransomware attack occurs you should contact NetApp Support to see if they can assist with data recovery. To win the battle against ransomware, though, you need to consider more than just maintaining local Snapshot copies for backups.
Now on his 2nd tour at NetApp across 9 years, Matt is a Senior Technical Marketing Engineer with a primary focus on ransomware prevention and recovery as well as portfolio Security. This includes but is not limited to Data Governance, Data Privacy Frameworks, Security Tools, and Security Best Practices. Prior to this role he was a Staff Engineer focused on ONTAP product Supportability specifically in the areas of networking and SMB/CIFS. In between NetApp stints Matt worked with a NetApp partner (Eze Castle Integration) for 7 years as pre sales/post sales storage architect focusing on early 7-mode to cDOT migration. He has also focused on Microsoft Windows Active Directory, Exchange, SQL and VMware during his 22 years of IT experience with 16 of those years coming in the storage industry.
