Immutable Repository

Enable immutability for backups and backup copies sent to a Linux-based local repository.

Once set, the immutability period cannot be changed or lifted by anyone except superusers.

Two-Factor Authentication

Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) for NAKIVO Backup & Replication to prevent unauthorized access to your data protection activities. 2FA adds an additional layer of security with codes generated via Google Authenticator, making it impossible to log in to the solution with only a password.
