Insider protection for Veeam cloud and service providers.

Data availability has become paramount to ongoing viability of any business. Data needs to be available and protected.

Veeam Cloud Connect offers customers the ability to backup data to an offsite location, but in certain situations ensuring the security of primary or additional backups in a cloud repository may not be enough to ensure data security for the customer.

The backed-up data may become unavailable as a result of a malicious attack or unintentional action on the customer's end. There are a number of ways a malicious user can gain access to a customer's Veeam Backup & Replication console and delete all tenant backups, including off-site backups stored in the cloud repository. The malicious user could be a local administrator or an external party seeking to do damage to the company's reputation. The data can also be accidentally deleted from a cloud repository or because of a mistake done during the configuration of backup jobs and settings.

Veeam Backup & Replication offers Insider Protection functionality, which protects you from both straightforward deletion of all backups from the Veeam console, as well as from more sophisticated attacks.
