Just read a similar asked question and thought I would ask what everybody else uses on a corporate side.


For my company we have a procedure which is also planted in our ISO 9002 accreditation.


We use ShadowProtect on two levels.


5 Disks in which 4 are kept off site and 1 is plugged in and backup is done to it. Rotate daily.


Also Daily a cloud backup is done too ShadowProtect.


Monthly a backup is also done to a remote computer in a different part of our site which is not part of the offices.


I know it may sound convoluted but for us it works.

I use Crashplan - currently my backup is 8tb.


It works well for my needs.

I recommend a cloud backup system - most importantly it has versioning without size limits.


Eg. The whole local file system could be encrypted causing a full upload again, but the huge size will not cause the originals to be deleted. Some versioning systems only keep the last xxgb of changes. 


The cloud system is also not accessible as a drive in windows so cryptolocker malware shouldnt be able to see it directly. 




I have seen too many NAS boxes encrypted too as the backup plan was a simple file sync between the D:\CompanyData folder and the Z:\CompanyBackup folder.
