Backups are one way that enterprises have traditionally ensured data redundancy and recovered from disasters. But protecting these backups and ensuring business continuity has become a challenging facet of multi-cloud resilience. Backups have historically been kept in a secure and air-gapped location, but a true air-gapped approach is not possible in most modern-day environments (e.g., cloud services). As a result, logical air gapping has become necessary to prevent threat actors from tampering with data backups.
This ShardSecure technical white paper explores the top challenges associated with backup storage and proposes a solution for true multi-cloud resilience.
