Ransomware detection enables Unitrends customers to be alerted when our Recovery-Series and Unitrends Backup PBBAs detect potential Ransomware attacks. Attacks are predicted using a combination of predictive analytics and machine learning; the infrastructure being protected is monitored for anomalies that correlate with Ransomware penetration.
