Backup and Immutability

Choose immutability for off-site backup

To keep businesses operating, a secure backup is a priority for the best data protection strategy. However, data security focuses on both its accessibility and its resilience, which is why it is necessary to think of solutions that guarantee the integrity of the data itself by making the backup immutable for a predefined period of time. The answer to this need can be met by following a backup strategy 3-2-1-1-0.

According to the rule, it is advisable to have 3 copies of the data, on 2 different media, with 1 off-site copy, with 1 offline copy with air gap or immutable and with 0 errors.

Preventing human errors

Reduce the risk of loss or corruption of backup data, eliminating the possibility of accidental changes.

Guaranteed data integrity

Ensure that the saved data is reliable and not subject to manipulation over time.



What exactly is the immutability of backup data?

The immutability of backup data refers to the characteristic of the data being unalterable or unmodifiable for a specific period of time, protecting them from unauthorized changes or cancellations.

What are the advantages of immutable backup data?

Benefits include ransomware protection, compliance with regulatory requirements, prevention of human error, and ensuring long-term data integrity.

How do you achieve immutability of backup data?

The immutability of backup data can be achieved through the use of technologies such as data blocking, tamper-proof encryption, or storage in specially designed systems to ensure that the data cannot be modified or deleted for a specific period.

What are the best practices for implementing and managing immutable backups?

Best practices include adopting backup and archiving solutions designed to support data immutability, defining appropriate data retention policies, and regularly verifying the integrity of immutable backups to ensure they are protected and accessible when necessary.
