Hardened Virtual Appliance
Businesses are under a growing threat from cybercrime , where data is not the only target anymore , but backups as well . With NAKIVO Backup & Replication , customers can create immutable backups in Amazon S3 buckets or a local Linux-based repository .
Version 10.5 brings Hardened Virtual Appliance as NAKIVO continues to help customers improve resilience in the face of ransomware . The new feature offers a simple way to deploy the solution and protect backup data from ransomware at the same time . By deploying the solution as a hardened virtual appliance running Ubuntu Server , customers can use the local repository deployed with the VA to create immutable backups . This immutability cannot be lifted by users – not even the superuser – so the backups stay protected from modification , deletion or encryption by ransomware for the entire specified period .
“ Protecting the data that customers entrust to NAKIVO Backup & Replication is paramount ,” said Bruce Talley , CEO of NAKIVO . “ We want every company to operate safely without having to look over their shoulders at every turn or worry about their data being encrypted by ransomware .” �
