Vault’s Snapshot feature provides organisations with a robust defence against ransomware, a type of malware that prevents users from accessing their data, unless they pay a ‘ransom.’ Using this feature, organisations are able to quickly recover from ransomware attacks.

Administrators can recover data in a Team Share or personal folder, as it existed at a specific point in time. This feature recovers content that was previously deleted, recreated, or changed, and maintains the full revision history of restored files.

Some advanced attacks—such as ‘Locky’—may delete, duplicate, or change file names. This process usually irreversibly destroys a file’s revision history, preventing users from restoring a previous version. The Snapshot feature gives you the ability to restore files to exactly how they were before the ransomware infection.
