Non-executable Data In Backup Copy

What you will learn from this article?

  • Why it’s important to keep your data in a non-executable form.

During the backup process with GitProtect.io, your data which is encrypted in flight and at rest, gets to storage where it’s kept in a non-executable form. It means that your backup copies aren’t intended to be executed or run as a program or code, as these files don’t contain instructions that a processor can execute.

So, even if malware hits one of your files, it won’t infect the rest of your data in storage - your backup copies don’t contain executable code or instructions that could potentially harm a system or perform unintended actions.
