Do you know the difference between Phishing, Spear Phishing, and Whaling attacks?

Phishing: A wide net is cast without specific targets
Spear Phishing: A group of victims is targeted using personal details
Whaling: A big victim is targeted within a company like the CEO

The first step in #DRaaS is prevention. Keep your guard up to avoid attacks.

Using Zerto for Disaster Recovery and Orchestration of Continuous Data Protection

Where VM backups can become an issue is when versions of software do not match up. This means that you could be successfully backing up your data to the cloud, but when your disaster recovery plan is put into motion and VMs are created in the cloud, incompatible versions will put a wrench in your recovery efforts.
