With the rapid rise of ransomware and other cyber attacks, preventing your data from being destroyed or tampered with, whether maliciously or accidentally, is more vital than ever.
Many IT decision-makers are now making immutable backups an integral part of their everyday backup routine.
In this blog, we explore five major benefits that all businesses, regardless of sector, can reap from implementing immutable backups.
The Cyber Security Breaches Survey 2023 reported that 26% of medium businesses and 37% of large businesses experienced cyber-crime in the past 12 months, with ransomware payments nearly doubling to $1.5m (£1.2m) over the past year (Sophos, 2023). Immutable backups increase data recovery in the event of a ransomware threat – so you’re never put in a position where the only way you can recover your data is by paying a ransom.
Immutable backups stop your data from being destroyed or manipulated by malicious actors or accidental deletion, ensuring you can recover and reinstate your data company wide. Operate with confidence knowing that a clean copy of your critical data is always available, as “air gapping” segregates backups from the main environment, both physically and credentials-wise.
