Immutable Data and Air Gapping
Malware, ransomware and other forms of cyber-attacks have advanced since 2019, and the threat to primary and secondary (replicated) data is far greater than ever. More so, as digitisation increases and data becomes a more valuable asset to your organisation, then the protection of that data increases too, and having an off-site basic backup may no longer be good enough.
Years ago, backing up to tape provided this air-gapped solution by allowing data to be written to a format that, once written and stored in a secure place, cannot be modified after creation. This may still be an option for some, but it is now old technology and may not comply with a more ‘cloud-first’ strategy. ADAM can now provide this solution in the cloud, using S3 object-based storage, ensuring that data cannot be destroyed (deleted, overwritten or encrypted) and providing a fail-safe option to your backup, all at a low operational cost.
