Team Drives & Google Drive File Stream: Protecting files from ransomware attacks

Hi, We are using Google Team Drives & Google Drive File Stream app to store and share our corporate files and documents. There are several users in multi location using the Team Drives and we have also started using Google Drive File Stream app on computers to sync the files. Are there particular preventive measures we could take (in addition to commonly known antivirus, software updates etc.) to protect ransomware spreading to Google Drives via File Stream App or Drive Sync app from any of the computers? Is there a ways to create a secure backup of all the documents in Team Drives on daily basis?All the recommendations would be welcome :)Rgds.Madis

Hi Madis,

Welcome to the Google Drive Help Forum and thanks for posting.

I noticed that you are using a G Suite account and have a question about it. We have a specialised Help Forum, that deals with issues related to G Suite accounts. I'm moving this post to G Suite Help Forum for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Hi Madis, 

The only way of creating a back up of your files, is to use Google Takeout. However, this is not automated, so you would need to look into creating an API, or in the G Suite Marketplace for further options. 

I will leave this thread open in case any other users have any suggestions, but I would also recommend that you ask in the Stack Overflow community for ideas about this also. 

Thanks, 
Fiona

Thanks Fiona!

If an issue would occur, would it be possible to roll-back all the files in Google Drive & Team Drive to previous revision? (to status before ransomware attack and encryption of files)...

Rgds.

Hi Madis, 

You can use revision history to restore the file to the previous version. While there is no way to natively bulk do this, you can do it using an API. 

I hope this helps! 

Thanks, 
Fiona
