An immutable backup solution that helps you protect against and recover from ransomware attacks.
Ransomware protection that you can rely on
Backups are crucial in the fight against ransomware, giving you a way to recover encrypted data following an attack.
Unfortunately, this hasn’t gone unnoticed by cyber criminals, who seek to encrypt or delete backups to put recovery out of reach.
Ekco Airgap solves this headache, creating multiple backups (one on-premise, one in the cloud) and making them immutable, which prevents them from being changed or deleted by hackers.
Introducing Ekco Airgap
A powerful managed solution bringing backup and incident response together to tackle ransomware, Airgap prevents your backup data from being accessed, changed or deleted through immutability. So when disaster does strike, you can get back on your feet quickly.
Rest easy knowing that your ransomware response is bulletproof.
What is an immutable backup?
An immutable backup can’t be modified, deleted or crypto locked. Having an immutable copy of your data means there’s always an untouched source of truth that’s safe and recoverable, helping you get back to business after any failure scenario – even ransomware.
A practical response to real-world threats
There’s no airtight solution that’s guaranteed to keep hackers out of your network. Airgap brings several layers of defence – including network and management separation – so that even if hackers access your production environment, they won’t find your backups.
You manage the production environment; we manage your backups. No one, legitimate or otherwise, can modify or delete your backups. We’re the only party with access to your immutable backups, which creates an extra layer of security.
We’ve considered everything, so you don’t have to.

How it works
- It all starts with the Ekco Box, a hardened backup appliance that sits on-premise and stores an immutable copy of your data locally. Separate from your corporate network, and managed by us, this enables fast recovery times while protecting your storage infrastructure from hackers.
- A version of your local backup is encrypted and sent to the Ekco Cloud, where it’s air-gapped and made immutable, to protect against local incidents.
- With two immutable copies of your data, one in the cloud and one on-premise, you’ll always have an untouched version of your source data for recovery, no matter what happens.
- When you instruct us, we’ll restore your backups for you. Incident response support is included so that you can get your environment back online as quickly as possible.
