How we protect
your data

Immutable storage technology prohibits data from being deleted or edited. This restriction is placed directly on the data and applies to anyone who tries to change it, whether that’s a system administrator, storage vendor or cyber attacker. No one is able to alter the data; it is frozen and locked.

This reduces the risk of a cyber-attack and is a way of preventing ransomware, a form of malware that holds a victim’s data hostage.

Is your data protected
from worst-case scenarios?

You may have multilayered safety measures in place to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data – but what do you do when every line of security fails? Are you prepared for a worst-case scenario, like a ransomware attack?

As many as 30,000 websites are hacked every day and in 2021, the number of ransomware attacks grew by 92.7%. There’s no way of knowing when your business could be one of them. As a media company, ensuring your records are protected against threats like these is a key priority.

Immutable storage technology protects your data in the worst-case scenarios. Even when all lines of defence fail, you can rest assured that your data will remain secure and intact with Lineup’s immutable storage solution.

Additionally, your customers will be safe in the knowledge that any data they have stored with you is protected.

The human element
