Are you ready to go beyond traditional backup and recovery?
We place so much faith in backups to recover from all kinds of disasters. But there is no perfect backup. Things go wrong with backups too. You need to be careful and hedge your bets. At the very least, you should have two backups, one local and one offline.
According to Cloudwards.net „37% of all businesses were hit by ransomware in 2021 and it cost the world $20 billion. This number is expected to rise to $265 billion by 2031.“ If you think data doesn’t concern you or your company, think again. It’s time for action.
The answer for critical data is IMMUTABLE STORAGE, where data remains in its original form. Data remains unaltered and present, meeting both data retention and integrity requirements. Choosing the technology that gives you complete control over your data – stored securely both online and offline – can save you countless headaches.
When data must remain forever unalterable, immutable storage technology is the right approach to consider. According to the meaning „immutable “, this is the storage where data remains completely static for its entire existence and can never be modified or removed. When evaluating the use of immutable storage, it is crucial to check that every file would turn into a WORM (Write Once Read Many) object.
WHO WANTS THAT? A one-time record, that would never have to be updated again.
WORM backup is an amazing feature, that guarantees that sensitive data remain secured for any length of time. Which brings us to WORM immutable powers. No updates, no deletion, unmodifiable, undeletable. Once something is written, it cannot be changed or deleted.
KEY BENEFITS OF IMMUTABLE STORAGE is trust and compliance
Protection against cyber-attacks: Data and backups cannot be modified.
Elimination of human errors: Prevention against accidental file deletion, content modification and data corruption.
Safeguarding backups against retention – WORM-protected, cannot be deleted, modified, or overwritten.
Maintaining data authenticity for legal tasks or securing digital evidence.
Meeting regulatory compliance policies – such as analytics data, protecting heritage and data privacy objective.
Businesses tend to use immutable storage whenever they need to follow government or industry regulations, and legal requirements. With immutable storage, certain kinds of data can be safeguarded for any time. Organizations using data as legal evidence, or those storing critical medical or scientific data, are prime immutable storage candidates.
Data loss can have a serious financial impact on your business. Rather than keeping fingers crossed that it can not happen, it is necessary to think about the right strategy for your data.
