Protecting Mount Paths from Ransomware

NetApp software provides the ability to protect mount paths from Ransomware attacks by write-protecting mount paths from all processes except the NetApp processes.

This feature is currently supported for Windows MediaAgents.

You can enable Ransomware protection for all mount paths accessible from a specific MediaAgent. See Enabling Ransomware Protection on MediaAgents for more information.

In addition, NetApp software automatically detects Ransomware when you back up data from a client and immediately generates Alerts and Event Messages as notifications.

See Ransomware Alerts and Events from Backup Jobs for more information.
