What should you do when SysCloud identifies a potential ransomware threat in your backup archives?

Follow the below steps: 

Step 1: Select ‘Backup Data Insights’ under the ‘Backup’ drop-down menu on your dashboard. Select ‘Ransomware.’

Step 2: You will be able to view a list of potential ransomware threats identified by SysCloud. To take appropriate action, select the checkbox next to the alert and click ‘ACTIONS.’ Select ‘Take Control from Owner’ to take control of the file with the ransomware threat from the user who owns it. Select ‘Restore from a Safe Snapshot’ to restore the infected file from a safe snapshot or click ‘Dismiss’ if you think it is not a potential threat.
