Data Protection

WHAT IS DATA PROTECTION?

Data is expanding and unpredictable with more data, apps, devices and users making it more difficult to protect and leading to fragmented data protection solutions.

The reality is that most companies manage their applications and data in multiple places: from on-premises traditional infrastructures to virtualised environments to hybrid and public clouds.

As a result of this exponential data growth, along with regulatory compliance, strict service-level agreements, and shrinking backup windows, companies are having to rethink their data protection methods.

These conditions call for a data protection strategy that acknowledges the current landscape and protects data across them all, because you will likely need to protect more than one of these environments for some time.

Ensuring users have the data they need to conduct business even if the data is damaged or lost is the goal. This is achieved through a comprehensive strategy for valuing, cataloging and protecting information assets from application and user errors, malware and virus attacks, machine failures, or facility outages and disruptions.

WHY YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR DATA?

Data capital is increasingly being seen as an extremely valuable asset that has the potential to be a source of competitive advantage for organisations.

Those that recognise and leverage the value of data, convert it into real-time actionable insights in order to uncover patterns and pursue breakthrough ideas. In turn, they become more successful in an increasingly competitive business landscape.

You need to protect your data from the edge to core to cloud, across multiple RPO and RTO levels in a secure environment in order to meet Business continuity requirements and minimise the risk to your business.
