Data protection for the enterprise - how good is good enough?

In today’s data-driven enterprise environment, the reliance on IT to sustain business continuity is more acute than ever. As cloud capabilities improve, businesses are moving more data and workloads to the cloud and taking advantage of cloud-hosted solutions, making multifaceted data management and protection essential.

Enterprise IT commonly includes a wide variety of platforms, applications and infrastructure that often grows with the size of the enterprise. Any backup and recovery solution selected must, therefore, support a vast array of environments and integrate with every layer of the infrastructure stack to ensure a unified data protection strategy.

The turbulent world we’re living in right now adds another dimension. Keeping data secure, compliant and available - regardless of where it lives - is vital. With much of an enterprise workforce currently working remotely, your customers need the ability to protect and rapidly recover business-critical data across hybrid, physical, virtual and multi-cloud environments.

Also, empowering employees to continue operating productively and safely is incredibly important. IT resiliency and efficiency are critical - preferably with reduced complexity, cost and risk.

Challenges your customers might be facing

Uncover some of the business challenges that might drive your customers to evaluate and select an enterprise-class data protection solution. 

  • Their cloud service provider not providing cloud backup.
  • Governance and security concerns.
  • Deployment of cloud workloads requiring a more granular level of recovery than cloud-based snapshots allowing them to continue their hybrid cloud.
  • The need to eliminate IT cost/complexity.
  • Changing or evolving regulatory requirements.
  • Increased risk (of downtime/unprotected workloads).
