When the Australian development team at BackupAssist let me know there would be an anti-ransomware feature available so soon after the recent high profile cryptolocker attacks, I have to admit, the timing seemed almost a little too convenient.
Until any concrete evidence comes to light, we’ll work on the basis they just know the market, but my investigations will continue nonetheless 🙂
It’s been a couple of months since we announced the launch of BackupAssist v10 and its super efficient new cloud backup engine. The significance of the new engine is that it unlocks the possibility of using public cloud giants AWS and Azure as backup destination options.
While the BackupAssist side of things is typically easy to configure, I’ve had a few requests for help navigating Azure’s configuration options, so in this article, I’ll be walking through the steps as they are today.
We’re thrilled to announce that there’s a new version of BackupAssist available today, and with it, new features for backing up your data to the wonderfully reliable and ultra-secure data centres of cloud hosting juggernauts, Amazon and Microsoft (with more to follow).
While you’ll find enhancements to the base product too, the headliner for version 10 is undoubtedly the all-new backup engine that’s behind the new Cloud Backup features.
Brimming with potential, this new technology offers a simple, secure and efficient way to automate getting your important data off-site.
