An immutable backup cannot be altered in any way or deleted throughout its life cycle while it lives in storage on premises and in the cloud. Considering that cyberthreats are cited as a top concern, companies are seeking ways to keep their data safe.
Taking advantage of built-in immutability systems that exist in Linux filesystems and S3 storage, the backup is guaranteed to be safe and ready for recovery, thus making it very attractive for long-term retention and general archival.
Backup solutions, like Veeam Backup & Replication, take the guesswork out of securing your backup data by using automation to create natively immutable backups in Linux storage and Amazon S3 storage. By ensuring that immutability is set at the time of the backup or backup copy creation, your backup data is safe from ransomware encryption and any other threat that would seek to compromise your data.
