NAKIVO recently launched v10.2 of NAKIVO Backup & Replication. The latest release expands the scope of Microsoft 365 data protection with support for SharePoint Online, introduces Tenant Resource Allocation, and adds ransomware protection for backups with Amazon S3 Object Lock Support. With cyberattacks on the rise, adding ransomware protection to your backup data is crucial to guarantee a recovery from a ransomware attack.
Ransomware-Proof Backups with Amazon S3 Object Lock
After introducing Backup to Amazon S3 in 2020, NAKIVO adds support for Amazon S3 Object Lock in v10.2 to help businesses mitigate the threat of ransomware to their backups and backup copies. The Amazon S3 Object Lock functionality uses the write-once-read-many (WORM) model meant to ensure that objects are immutable for as long as required. Once set, the retention period cannot be shortened or disabled, not even by the root user.
Amazon S3 Object Lock support allows companies to:
- Protect their backups stored in Amazon S3 from overwriting and deletion.
- Set retention periods to keep objects immutable for as long as you need.
- Protect their backup data against ransomware and meet compliance requirements.
This means companies can safely secure their backup data stored in S3 by basically putting a read-only lock on it. Ransomware trying to infect and encrypt the backup data will fail, even if the root credentials are compromised.
