November 2014, First Baptist Church of Durant suffered system failure on FBC servers which threatened our RDS data files. After comparing of our systems to RDS Connect, we found RDS Connect offered an improved backup system, automatic software updates and vastly better security for our data. The decision was made in January 2015 to make the switch to RDS Connect. This decision proved to be God sent.
On September 16th, 2015 our network was compromised with a Crypto-virus. This is a Trojan hybrid virus that encrypts files and demands a ransom be paid to the malware author to provide a key to decrypt the files. This virus moved quickly, encrypting many files. Once the virus was isolated and removed, we found our old RDS files on our server were encrypted and unusable. Our files on the RDS Connect Servers were safe and secure.
We praise God for the decision in January to move our RDS data files to RDS Connect.
