Test for recoverability

Recovery assurance truly only comes from testing, but it may not always be a priority for most businesses. Let Veeam take the wheel with automated testing to guarantee recoverability.
Security avoid re infection

Avoiding (re)infection 

Compliance requirements are driving longer-term data retention needs for more data than ever before. Veeam helps retain that data at-cost, but also ensures ransomware stays out of the picture.

Smart, automated security capabilities for your backup strategy

Security immutability ransomware

Immutable native backups

Stop ransomware in its tracks, ensure backup compliance and safeguard your recoverability with immutability for your backup copies. Automate both the protection and downstream security of your backups for the duration of their life cycle, on premises and in the cloud.

  • Protection without lock-in with the NEW Hardened Linux Repository that stores backups on immutable storage, preventing modification or encryption
  • Cloud backups are recoverable, off site and 100% protected from ransomware with Amazon S3 Object Lock Immutability 
  • Reduce the delta between primary storage and backups with automated backup copy to object storage, achieving the 3-2-1-1-0 Rule faster than ever

Why is it important to test your backups? 

Recovery data testing, or testing that you can actually recover from your backups when needed, is a task that is challenging in nature. Surveys routinely show organizations test far less than they should to achieve data recovery and compliance goals.

Data testing for both general recovery and disaster recovery begins with testing the backup data:

  • Was everything protected without errors?
  • Is the backup free from virus and malware?
  • Can the data be recovered from the media?

The right data protection solution, like Veeam Backup & Replication, will help you to do just these things — in an automated fashion so that you can focus on other IT initiatives while remaining confident that you are ready for recovery at any moment and ready for disaster should it strike.

What is an immutable backup? 

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.

How can you avoid reinfection when restoring data?

Sometimes you just can’t avoid having to revert back to your archived backups to restore the data that you need. Considering the constant threat from ransomware and other cyberthreats, how can you avoid becoming infected from old data? There have been many cases where infected data lived in the backups, only to be discovered at the time of recovery.

Applications that place your data’s security first, like Veeam Backup & Replication, provide simple, automated processes to keep you protected from reinfection when recovering old data. Veeam includes a Secure Restore that performs automatic scans provided through integration with trusted antivirus and anti-malware solutions.
