Ransomware Protection

Protecting your data from Ransomware attacks is critically important. Commvault proactively monitors the client computer for any unexpected activity and alert the user with the type of activity.

In addition, you can secure the mount path from being accessed by external processes thereby protecting the backed up data. Commvault provides different methods to protect your data.

Storing Data in Offline Storage

We recommend that you store a copy of data on tape or on cloud storage. Tape and cloud storage store offline data, and offline data is not easily accessible to ransomware software.


  • You cannot configure Ransomware protection using the Command Center. However, you can view the File Activity Anomaly Report using the Command Center.
  • You must have the File System Core Package installed on your client computer to use this feature.
