Disaster Recovery Backup Location Protected Against Ransomware Attack

CommServe DR backup metadata locations (local or UNC) are automatically protected and locked against ransomware unauthorized changes. If the CommServe computer is infected by ransomware, the lock reduces the risk of DR backups becoming infected, which improves the recovery time objectives of the CommServe computer.

As a recovery option of last resort, use Media Explorer to catalog and recover DR backups that are in chunk format and are located directly on storage. When Media Explorer catalogs a mount path, volume folders containing DR backups are automatically located and cataloged. This behavior change significantly improves recoverability by eliminating trial and error Media Explorer operations.
