Keywords: Cybersecurity, Cyberattacks

Backups are essentially your last line of defense in the case of a cyberattack. Organizations need to make sure they have policies in place that are automatically backing up the applications. One of the developments being seen in increasingly sophisticated attacks, is that not only do they take over the clusters but also the backup retention storage units. Gaurav Rishi, Vice President of Products & Cloud Native at Kasten by Veeam, explains why having immutability with the backup retention storage units is so important. He goes on to discuss why it is preferable in recovery to not be tied to a particular type of underlying storage infrastructure or particular Kubernetes distribution.
