It may be stating the obvious, but the core reason security should be important for your organisation is data protection. As our businesses expand and the boundary of networks blur, it can be a real challenge to know where our data is, or where it should be.2
The key solution to managing and protecting data can be sought through virtualisation of hyperconverged infrastructure, enabling your organisation to identify through a single pane or dashboard what workloads could be exposing it to risks.
Research released by Aura Information Security shows New Zealand businesses are feeling the wrath of cybercriminals, with more than one third experiencing a cyber-attack in the last 12 months.3
Without prioritising security, you can put client and mission-critical data at risk, leading to vulnerability across your network and potential damage to your organisation’s reputation if a cyber-attack occurs.
Leveraging a hybrid IT strategy and the power of AI technology can help your business monitor and predict potential threats, ensuring greater availability across data and less downtime across your IT environment.
As the saying goes, ‘time is money’, if your data suddenly becomes unavailable because of a cyber-attack, your organisation risks downtime and loss of revenue. From employees accessing unauthorised applications to a phishing attack, your network at risk can inhibit on-going success.
You can curb these potential threats, with the autonomy to choose where your data is stored across a hybrid IT environment. Furthermore, integrating a data-centric security strategy provides end-to-end visibility and can help keep it protected with less risk of downtime.
