Don’t let legacy data protection burden your organization

Data is your business’s most valuable asset and it deserves the best protection. To realize the full value of your data, automate protection and security of data wherever it lives and as it grows. Validate that you can meet required business SLAs for recovery and compliance.

Legacy data protection exposes your business to unpredictable and exponential costs and operational complexity as data grows. Additionally you need to invest in multiple data protection solutions to be able to manage the diverse workloads across data center, cloud, and edge.  

With Data Protection as-a-Service you don’t have to worry about hardware or software dependencies to scale cost effectively. You can simplify and centralize management of enterprise data across data center, cloud, SasS applications and edge locations.

Cloud backup and data protection FAQ

What is cloud data protection?

Cloud data protection is the practice of securing your personal data or a company’s data in a cloud environment. This is regardless of whether it’s managed by the data owner or a third party. Cloud data protection is becoming increasingly popular and replacing “legacy” systems like protecting, storing, and managing data “on-premises” — on a user’s device or in their data center.

Why should you use the cloud to protect your data?

Reasons to transition from on-premises to cloud-based data protection include limitless access to data backups regardless of geographic location, predictable and often reduced costs, quick and easy deployment, simplicity in IT management, enhanced security, seamless scalability no matter the size of the IT environment, and more.

How are cloud-based backups protected?

Cloud storage is designed for enhanced data security. It leverages encryption and monitors user behavior for anomalies to protect against malware and ransomware, as well as malicious or accidental deletion. Cloud solutions back up data automatically and update backups only when certain files change. This optimizes bandwidth and enables IT to monitor for infection and “roll back” to the perfect snapshot if data becomes compromised.

What makes cloud more secure than other options for data protection?

Cloud applications include heightened safety measures like multi-factor authentication, immutable backups, and zero-trust security. AI and machine learning monitor the cloud environment for breaches and threats. These systems automatically find compromised files, quarantine them, and accelerate clean data recovery. Companies minimize downtime and get back to business faster — saving money and their reputation in the process.

How can you protect data with the cloud?

As data is backed up to storage in the public cloud, the cloud vendor manages the environment to keep your backup data safe and free your team from ever needing to manage hardware or update software. Your data is secure, available, and accessible from anywhere at any time. The cloud eliminates the need to buy and maintain backup infrastructure, making it the most cost-effective, scalable, and easy-to-manage data protection method.
