FTP Backup's now Availible in Revelation
Cryptoware Attack on the Rise !!!



It has recently come to our attention that the Ransom Software onslaught on PC’s, such as the Cryptoware Virus, is on the rise.
Cryptoware writes code to your Microsoft Data Files (such as the MS-Access data that Revelation uses, and other Microsoft data such as Word Documents etc), and Encrypts them with a Lock File. You can then no longer access that Data. You will get a notification in some form or another that either your Data or in the latest case, the entire PC has been locked AND that you will have to pay a ransom amount to have the Data unlocked or retrieved.

In most cases, even if the ransom amount was paid, the data or PC remains encrypted.

This seems to be only the beginning of things to come, as more and more people are looking for easy money. The onslaught is also not limited to one area in the world, but new variants are being cooked up all over.

How does this effect Revelation Users?

It is one thing to make regular backup’s, but quite another to look after such backups. We have noticed most of our clients ONLY rely on the Quick Backup engine in Revelation that makes a Backup to your local devices. However, the Cryptoware also infects ANY backup or Device that is attached to the PC.
The other, MUCH LARGER issue, is that most clients do not back up their ARCHIVE DATA. Initially this does not seem like a big problem, BUT, once the Auditors start calling for Historic data, you are in deep water. The Receiver of Revenue has now also increased the Advice requirements from 5 YEARS to 9 YEARS. SARS has also legislated a ZERO Tolerance for non-compliance to the archiving rule, even if the failure is due to circumstances beyond your control (like Fire or in this case, a Virus attack).

What can you do about this?

For a small fee increase to your SLA (See: http://www.revelation.co.za/Products_PricingOptions.aspx), we now offer an extended FTP Backup engine that also caters for Archive and Month-end Backups. As from the 1st of July 2017, you will now have the option to select ALL your backup sets (Including Year-end Archives, Pre-Month-end and Quick Backups) to be backed up to the FTP Server.
How does it work?

     •    First and foremost, you will need a reliable Internet connection.
     •    On existing Revelation, you will now notice a new Prompt for FTP Backups
          o    Click on the FTP Backup option
          o    Accept the Terms & Conditions
          o    Select the Backup sets you would like to include
     •    Send us a revised SLA that now includes the FTP Backup Options
          o    You may either download the SLA from our Website
                http://www.revelation.co.za/Demo.aspx
                Or
          o    You may click on [Help] in Revelation - Toolbar. Click on [Support Contract]
     •    Regularly check your FTP backups by clicking on [Help] – FTP Backups

DO NOT BE CAUGHT OFF GUARD ON THIS ONE, YOUR FUTURE MAY DEPEND ON IT !!!
