Modern Data Protection: Why Backup Alone is not Enough
With few exceptions organizations today are highly Data Dependent. Today’s data consumption models pose new challenges for data protection, data can be housed in public, private, or hybrid clouds. To add to this complexity, end users are much more reliant on SaaS applications, such as Salesforce, Microsoft Office 365, SharePoint, and even OneDrive which are frequently not protected by backups or DR. Also added to the mix are the new demands to protect data that doesn’t live “onsite” such as data stored on laptops, smartphones, and tablets.
Technology teams must find a way to backup and protect their data, no matter the location. Data protection is no longer about securing your on-premises environment, but about securing ALL your data by ensuring proper backup and disaster recovery strategies.
