LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- IDrive Inc., reputable online backup and cloud storage provider, is highlighting their IDrive Rewind cloud backup functionality. Rewind is ideal for people wanting to protect their data from new Crypto Virus and ransomware attacks in which data is encrypted by a third party, who then demand fees to unlock that data.

In the wake of recent cases of Crypto Viruses being shut down, an influx of new, and stronger, ransomware is appearing. Critroni, more complex and resilient than the well-known CryptoLocker, both encrypts data faster and makes data recovery even more impossible. Another threat, Simplocker, encrypts data on Android phones and their SD card archives; even data backups stored on the SD card will be useless.

"No one is safe from these Crypto Viruses, especially as the ransomware becomes more complex," says Raghu Kulkarni, CEO of IDrive. "Protecting data with online backup is essential to ensure a copy of the data is secure in an offsite location, unreachable to these Crypto Viruses. It's vital to proactively protect data, so in the event that files are infected or encrypted by a third party, preventing access to users, a recovery option is already in place. Our Rewind functionality is a key feature for users who need to restore data from a previous backup, especially if a more recent backup is infected or corrupt."

IDrive Rewind offers an improved method for accessing and restoring data, providing up to ten previous folder versions. Rewind allows users to dive into their backup history, restoring earlier file or folder versions in bulk rather than one at a time. So, even if the latest file is corrupt, IDrive Rewind enables restoration of earlier unaffected versions.

The feature is part of IDrive's current service offering with no additional cost to utilize the functionality. Rewind is currently available to every active IDrive customer. IDrive offers several account options with competitive pricing plans.
