Dells SecureWorks stated in a mid-December website article that the “CryptoLocker” ransomware has infected 200,000 to 250,000 systems worldwide during the first 100 days of the threat. There have been many reports of lost data; however, Enveloc Remote Backup users have had 100% success recovering from CryptoLocker attacks. Due to the high level of Enveloc standards, clients affected by this virus have been able to completely restore their data.

Enveloc’s protection is immune to CryptoLocker infection due to the way backup sets are created and how backup set integrity is verified before, during, and after transmission to the cloud. Because access to backup sets is strictly controlled through the Enveloc software, CryptoLocker cannot “reach out” and corrupt existing backup sets. Normal cloud file-sharing and synchronization services, however, would probably be subject to the same risks as local or network shares. With many cloud services, users can map a drive directly to the host machine provided by the service. If the drive is mapped, whatever data stored there can also be infected and would be subject to the malware. This is not possible with Enveloc users do not have direct access to any files on the backup server or access to any part of the server itself.
