WHAT IS AIR-GAPPING?
5
WHAT IS AIR-GAPPING?
An air gap is a physical separation between two
networks, typically between a production network
and a backup network. This separation helps to
ensure that data remains secure in the event of a
breach or attack on the primary network. Air
gapping can also be used as a security measure
for critical data, preventing it from being
physically accessed by unauthorized
individuals. There are several benefits to using
an air gap solution for backing up data. First,
it helps to ensure that data remains secure and
confidential. Second, it can help to prevent data
loss in the event of a primary network outage or
failure. Third, air gapping can improve
performance by reducing traffic on the primary
network.

What is an Air Gap Backup?
An air gap backup is a type of data storage that
is not connected to any other devices or
networks. This means that the data is physically
isolated and cannot be accessed remotely. Air gap
backups are often used as a last line of defense
against malware or other attacks, as they cannot
be targeted directly. Instead, an attacker would
need to have physical access to the device in
order to retrieve the data. Air gap backups can
be created using a variety of methods, including
portable storage devices, optical media, and even
paper printouts.

Types of Air Gap Backups
  • Air gap backups are a type of backup that is not
    physically connected to the main network. Air gap
    backups are typically stored on an external hard
    drive or in the cloud. Air gap backups are used
    to protect data in the event of a disaster, such
    as a fire or flood. Air gap backups can also be
    used to protect data from malware or other
    security threats. There are two main types of air
    gap backups
  • Local Air Gap Backups
  • Remote Air Gap Backups

  • Local Air Gap Backups

Local air gap backups are stored on an external
hard drive or other local storage device. Local
air gap backups are typically used for small
businesses or individuals who do not have access
to a remote backup solution. Remote air gap
backups are stored in the cloud or on a remote
server.
  • Remote Air Gap Backups

Remote air gap backups are typically used for
larger businesses or organizations that need to
protect large amounts of data. Air gap backups
can be used in conjunction with other backup
solutions, such as cloud backups or traditional
on-site backups.

How Air Gap Backups Work?
An air gap backup is a type of backup that is not
connected to any other network or computer. This
means that the data is stored in a completely
isolated environment, making it much more secure.
Air gap backups are often used for sensitive data
or for critical systems where any kind of
exposure could be disastrous. The main way that
an air gap backup works is by physically storing
the data on a separate piece of hardware. This
could be an external hard drive, a USB drive, or
even a DVD. The data is then copied onto this
storage device and disconnected from the
computer. It can then be stored in a safe
location, like a locked drawer or safe.
14
Benefits of Air Gap Backup
Air gap backups provide a number of benefits over
traditional backup methods. Air gap backups are
not connected to the network, which means they
are less likely to be corrupted or destroyed in
the event of a breach. Air gap backups also do
not require power, which makes them more reliable
in the event of a power outage.
15
Areas of Improvement with Air Gap Backups
As businesses increasingly rely on digital data,
the need for robust backup solutions has never
been greater. Air gap backups provide an extra
level of protection by physically isolating
backup data from the network. However, there are
some areas where air gap backups could be
improved. One area is security. Air gap backups
are not immune to security threats such as
malware and viruses. In order to protect backup
data, it is important to have a robust security
protocol in place. This may include using
encryption and ensuring that only authorized
personnel have access to the data. Another area
of improvement is reliability. Air gap backups
can be susceptible to power outages and other
disruptions. To ensure that data is properly
backed up, it is important to have a redundant
backup system in place. This may include using
both on-site and off-site backups.
