The accelerating adoption of modern technologies—cloud, mobility, the internet of things (IoT), and now work-from-home facilitators—has led to an increase in the complexity of IT infrastructure, as well as a proliferation of data. These factors put organizations and their IT infrastructures at greater risk for malicious attacks, human errors, and negligent behavior. Unfortunately, legacy strategies cannot adequately ensure continued business operations during and after cyber incidents.
Companies can weave together capabilities in an attempt to prevent attacks and data breaches, but functional gaps, poor integration, and management complexity slow implementation and make security objectives difficult to meet. Changing organizational mindsets from prevention to preparation for a security incident—cyber resilience—and implementing storage solutions with built-in cyber resilience is key to safeguarding critical data assets and quickly responding to and recovering from cyberattacks.
