Introducing RPVault Ransomware Defense 

Thousands of businesses are losing millions of dollars each year to ransomware attacks. Malicious hackers gain access to a business's website, encrypt the files and data and then extort the business for decryption passwords. In addition to the ransom, the attacks cause business interruption and reputational damage. Backups are important but often the attackers target and encrypt the backups to prevent recovery. 

Reliable Penguin is pleased to announce two new services to facilitate rapid recovery from ransomware - RPVault For Websites and RPVault For AWS.

For shared hosting customers, RPVault For Websites, provides for rapid ransomware recovery. Each night, Reliable Penguin will store an extra backup of your website in a separate "vault" account. The "vault" backups can not be accessed, deleted, encrypted, corrupted or locked from your website. In the event of a ransomware problem on your website, Reliable Penguin will retrieve the "vault" backups and use them to restore your website. RPVault For Websites is $5/month per website subscription.

For managed hosting customers, RPVault For AWS, provides advanced protection and rapid recovery of servers and databases. Nightly snapshots are stored in a separate "vault" account. Each "vault" account is locked with no valid logins. Reliable Penguin stores the unlock credentials in an isolated "air gapped" system. In the event of a ransomware attack the customer can request a recovery. After verification, Reliable Penguin will unlock the "vault" account and restore the servers and databases using the snapshots. A full recover of a single instance can be completed in under an hour. A complex environment consisting of multiple servers and databases can be recovered in just a few hours. RPVault For AWS can be purchased for AWS accounts provide by Reliable Penguin or for customer-owned AWS accounts. 

RPVault is a cost effective insurance policy against the rapidly expanding ransomware threat. For more info email:
