Traditionally, the core of any business resiliency has been the method of the 3-2-1 data protection strategy. This method requires multiple copies of data with two of these copies stored on different device types. The reality is that many organizations store backup copies on their production system infrastructure, leaving businesses vulnerable to internal and external attacks.1
The current health pandemic has refocused the spotlight on business resilience and opened ITs’ eyes to the need for a better data protection strategy because:
- Employees are now remote workers using virtual desktops that can leave an organization vulnerable to threats
- Implementations of SaaS collaboration tools were rushed to maintain productivity without understanding data protection best practices
- Attacks by malicious actors are continuing at an increasing rate2
Is it time to reevaluate your business resilience and data protection strategy? The core tenants of business resilience and cloud data protection are strength and quick recovery from any disruption. As applications continue to migrate to the cloud, your on-premises data protection solution may not be providing the cost efficiency, scalability, and elasticity your business needs to respond quickly.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Druva strengthen business resilience by protecting your data in its safest place: the cloud. AWS delivers scale, durability, and compelling cloud economics which allow you to instantly react to changing business requirements.
Built on top of AWS, Druva delivers globally accessible, infinitely scalable, and immutable data backup and disaster recovery (DR) — eliminating any hardware, software, or maintenance costs related to cloud data protection.
Data protection strategy for the cloud era
A direct-to-cloud backup model ensures that you can store data in any of the 14+ AWS supported regions, with the option to replicate to additional AWS locations for added resiliency.
Plus, Druva maintains a zero trust architecture that separates unique data into blocks, then encrypts it both in-flight and at rest. The unique data blocks are stored in an object-based storage repository without any identifying metadata, while source block file metadata is separated in an independent NoSQL database to hide data paths from unauthorized viewing. This technique stores data in a manner that makes it impossible to decrypt and reassemble without authenticated customer credentials. It also immunizes your data, preventing ransomware from executing in the Druva Cloud Platform.
Business disruptions are changing the way you need to protect data. Isn’t it time you strengthen your business resilience with Druva’s cloud data protection solutions?
