5 Ways Next-Gen Data Management Boosts Cyber Resiliency

Data is under attack. The 1,070% year-over-year uptick in ransomware threats proves it1. And today’s bad actors aren’t just encrypting data. They’re destroying backups and exfiltrating data so they can profit and damage brand reputations at the same time. That’s increasing the ransomware blast radius. Don’t let ransomware attackers win. Instead, fortify your environment and improve your response strategy with five next-gen data management powers. 1. Protect your backup data and systemLegacy backup isn’t architected to defend data against ransomware. That’s why companies still pay ransom. What’s needed is data safeguards built into your backup that help preserve customer trust and competitive edge. Look for a solution with native immutable backup snapshots because those can’t be encrypted, modified or deleted, protecting the authenticity of your data. Gain additional layers of protection by ensuring your backup has rules such as software-based write once, read many (WORM) with time-bound, data policy locks and...

Whether you’ve been hit with a ransomware attack or an internal mishap (malicious or human error), when disaster strikes, it’s critical to quickly recover from data loss. The question is: if a disaster were to happen today, could you predictably recover your backup data—when and where you need it—withouT compromise? The ability to ensure predictable recovery gives you confidence in meeting your SLAs and in the resiliency of your organization. To assess your readiness for achieving predictable recovery, ask yourself these questionS based on a framework of core recovery attributes. 1. Can you meet your predefined backup SLAs?Failed backup jobs and long backup windows that constantly bleed into production time can force compromise. This is because it becomes more convenient to skip the protection of some mission critical data. However, data that is not protected cannot be recovered. If you are unable to complete your backups successfully, how can you meet...
