ASUSTOR Informs Customers To Have Better Data Security


AlertMe
Any tech professional attending the 2020 NAB Show this April will understand how important security is, especially now that we live in a digital ecosystem where any device can be infected by one or more forms of dangerous malware. Recent incidents of attempted Ransomware attacks have prompted ASUSTOR to encourage customers to adopt security measures to help protect important data.
ASUSTOR Security Measures
ASUSTOR recommends the following actions to enhance data security:
  • Ensure ADM is always up to date.
  • Use Btrfs and snapshots to restore affected data.
  • Create a new administrator account and deactivate the default admin account.
  • Use a strong password.
  • Turn on ADM Defender, which has a firewall and set a blacklist and whitelist.
  • Disable SSH and Terminal services if unnecessary.
  • Avoid using preset port numbers and change any port numbers currently used.
  • Back up data to various locations, such as MyArchive, another NAS and cloud sync services.

ASUSTOR’s MyArchive can be used to store important data in an offline hard drive as cold storage. MyArchive drives can also be encrypted for extra security. ASUSTOR also recommends using Btrfs and snapshots. Btrfs efficiently provides snapshots and instantly protects the integrity of a customer’s data by enabling affected files to be restored easily.

To get the latest version of ADM, a customer must use the ADM Update in the settings of their NAS or download and manually install ADM from the ASUSTOR website: www.asustor.com/
