IDrive Targets Ransomware Recovery With New Feature
Los Angeles-based online backup provider IDrive Online Backup said on Tuesday that it has rolled out a new feature of its service, a new "snapshot" feature which is specifically aimed at helping with ransomware recovery. According to IDrive, the new IDrive Snapshots feature provides a historical view of user data stored in IDrive's accounts, so that users can perform point-in-time recovery of their files. The company said the new feature will help since Encryption-based ransomware might not be detected by anti-virus software until it's too late.
