GuardMode maintains and regularly updates over 4000 known ransomware threat patterns, and assesses affected files. While ransomware detection solutions were built for security teams to use, GuardMode was designed with the backup administrator and backup solution in mind. An easy to configure detection mechanism and the ability to guide administrators in recovering the critical affected data.
