Isolated recovery environments (IREs) with immutable data vaults (IDVs) promise to protect backup and recovery systems against advanced ransomware attacks by being unyielding. This paper examines how Infrastructure & Operations leaders should make the decision whether such solutions are worth the investment, or whether to go with alternative approaches.

Key Findings

  • IREs with IDVs provide the highest level of security and recovery against ransomware.
  • “New backup and recovery solutions offer many of the benefits offered by IREs, but IREs offer additional physical security and recovery features.”1
  • “Optimize recovery speed by implementing IREs with IDVs in close proximity to production systems.”1
