• Data Protection

    • What is data protection and why is it mission-critical?

    • As organizations become increasingly reliant on technology and data, data protection is now a mission-critical priority. Ensuring that data is secure, available and uncorrupted is essential for avoiding downtime, preventing legal exposure, stopping cybercrime, ensuring productivity and improving performance.

      Data protection has traditionally been defined as keeping information safe from corruption, loss and compromise. But with data now driving an organization’s ability to compete, data protection today must also enable more effective data management. Data protection technology that helps to cost effectively ensure continuous availability can now be used to simplify compliance, streamline workflows, improve analytics, power DevOps activities and enable data to be preserved for long-term monetization.

    • Solving the most pressing challenges of data protection

    • Effective data protection and data management require organizations to find solutions for a number of significant challenges.

      Massive data growth is a problem for any data protection program. With data volumes growing at exponential rates, there’s a sharp increase in the cost and complexity of backup and data retention, regulatory compliance and data security.

      Data complexity also makes data protection harder. With information now spread around the globe and residing on heterogeneous platforms, there’s a significant balkanization of the data landscape that makes it difficult to achieve data protection with a single solution. As a result, organizations are increasingly turning to multiple vendors and point solutions to meets data protection requirements, further complicating data management tasks.

      The magnitude of data events has raised the stakes on data protection. The cost of downtime or a data breach can easily run into the millions of dollars, increasing the focus on data solutions and magnifying the expectations placed on data protection technology.

    • Data protection FAQs

    • What is an integrated data protection appliance?

      An integrated data protection appliance combines hardware and software and can be easily integrated or plugged into a corporate network to help manage data backup and recovery, data replication, deduplication, disaster recovery and other data protection tasks.

      How is data protection for cybersecurity different from backup and recovery?

      Traditional backup and recovery technology is not sufficient to protect data from cybersecurity threats. Many attacks may include malware and code that is embedded in files and which, when backed up and later restored, allow only attackers to regain access to networks and data. Data protection for cybersecurity focuses on isolating clean data in a locked-down environment where it is protected from the attack surface.

      What is Data Protection-as-a-Service?

      Data Protection-as-a-Service (DPaaS) is a collection of cloud-based or web-based services that provide tools for organizations to help protect data assets. Data Protection-as-a-Service offerings may include services for backup, disaster recovery and storage. DPaaS provides state-of-the-art tools at an affordable price point and without the need for capital investment in hardware or software.

      How does data protection apply to cloud storage?

      There are multiple challenges to protecting data in the cloud. Organizations must have a reliable plan for backing up and restoring cloud data, for managing and testing cloud disaster recovery, and for making long-term data retention in the cloud more cost-effective by reducing storage footprints through deduplication.
