If you’ve read the headlines, odds are you’ve seen one of the many reports on how another major company has fallen victim to a data breach. IT and security teams have taken notice, and are operating a new “assume-breach” mentality emphasizing cyber resilience rather than threat prevention. As such, they’re increasing investment in detection and response capabilities as traditional methods are no longer effective. Unfortunately, the ability to simply recover backup data is not enough when an attack occurs. The crux of the issue for security and IT is a lack of integration between the backup environment and security operations that can enable response workflow and tooling. This slows both response and data recovery times resulting in greater downtime and lost revenue.
Improving security posture is no small feat
Historically, integration between backup platforms and SIEM tools has been difficult due to costs, timelines, and ownership. While APIs have existed for years, integrations require consistent effort and attention. Despite efforts to share data, many organizations still lack a single comprehensive view of the security of their backup environment — one that provides insights into security controls, configurations, and abnormal changes.
There is a need for integrated, out-of-the-box capabilities for IT and security teams to easily understand their data security posture, observe backup changes without analyst time or new integrations, and drill into the dashboards and alerts unique to their deployments. By simplifying both access and the use of posture and observability data, IT and SecOps teams can enable better preparedness, faster incident investigation and response, and better root cause analysis.
