BACKUP AND DATA PROTECTION, THE PERFECT COMBINATION
Because it is not enough to have a backup strategy, the data must also be protected.
Regardless of the type of technology used to store information, at some point in time, many individuals and businesses have suffered a loss of information.
Every 5 years, 20% of U.S. SMBs suffer a major data loss categorized as a disaster, few of which have a disaster recovery system in place to ensure business continuity and mitigate data loss.
With all the technological advances and changes, the way to safeguard information is no longer just a backup solution, you also have to protect your data.
What does this mean?
It means that backups need more cybersecurity and protection against ransomware and supply chain attacks.
Cloud backups are presented as a convenient, affordable, and effective solution, with certain security considerations over online services.
Companies should make data protection solutions, backups, and recovery strategies a priority.
What should you consider when designing your data protection strategy?

Ransomware is that silent enemy that spreads across the network infecting all information on servers, computers, and mobile devices, including information that is in the cloud, as it is accessed through the network and infected computers. Therefore, your backup strategy must have protection against ransomware.
