A secure, cyber-resilient data centre
is crucial to business continuity. We
hear from industry experts about
some of the key cyberthreats facing
data centres, how these can best be
mitigated against and a why BaaS is
becoming even more critical.
omport, an industry leader in business backup
solutions, held a discussion about the top reasons
that BaaS is critical for the security of data centres.
With more sophisticated infrastructures creating
more opportunities for security breaches, traditional backup may
no longer be a viable solution.
“The statistics all point to outsourced backup as the solution that
protects against security breaches, insufficient backup testing
and a lack of staff or resources,” stated Eric Young, Principal
Cloud Architect of Comport. “Virtual infrastructures will only
become more complex with more data to collect. The time to
upgrade is now.”
Comport outlined some of the reasons that it considers BaaS
critical for data centre security.
Protecting against cybertheft – Digital theft is becoming
more of a trend, not less. As organisations grow, they
become a more tempting target for cybercriminals,
companies without a BaaS solution have more to lose than
they can afford.
Fines for data loss – Even if a traditional backup solution
is successful at recovering some of the data lost after an
incident, it may not be able to mitigate fines or damaging
headlines. Inadequate protection of data can cost a company
millions of dollars.
Corrupted data – BaaS solutions combined with DRaaS are
much more effective at bringing back data in a holistic way.
Information loss is the number one cost component of recovering
from a cyberattack.
