CloudBacko Home : Free Cloud Backup for Everyone

Recently a large US fuel distribution company, Colonial Pipeline, became the victim of ransomware attack. They finally had to pay 5 million USD to the people behind the ransomware attack in order to get their systems working again. Because of this ransomware attack, so many gas stations in the US had to close down for a few days.

One of the most effective and easy protection against the ransomware attacks is regular and frequent backups of your important files or even the entire storage drives. With the help of CloudBacko Home, we can backup our files to multiple locations over various cloud storage accounts, over FTP servers and even on the local portable drives.

CloudBacko Home uses two-factor authentication for protection against the ransomware attacks or hackers. Even if they gain access to your system somehow, they won’t be able to delete your backup data. In addition, CloudBacko recommends 3-2-1 strategy for a really strong defense. In the 3-2-1 technique, we backup the data at 3 different locations, use 2 different types of media, and store backup at 1 offsite location.
