Increasing digitization is permeating our everyday lives. It offers new opportunities for society, but also presents systemic and technology-related risks. By networking almost all areas of life, we are constantly gaining more access to digital infrastructures, services and data sources that we interact with on a daily basis. They facilitate our lives in many areas, eg. For example, in medical care and improve the use of renewable energy. Technical development is progressing faster and faster, and data requirements and data transfer will therefore continue to increase in the future.
For many companies, their data is an integral part of your business value. In the process, data stored by technical errors, user errors, attacks or manipulations or complete server systems can collapse, be lost or rendered useless.
A company thrives on the availability of its data and its customer relationships. The maintenance of the business and its presence on the market are dependent on it. However, the recoverability of data in the event of a disaster or disaster presupposes that, in accordance with the compliance guidelines, data was protected against external access, secured and outsourced. But many companies do not face the imminent danger with the necessary seriousness, although in Germany the protection of data against loss of information by an appropriate risk management is also required by law.
Headlines about devastating cyber attacks are omnipresent. A business interruption can cost a mid-sized company several hundred thousand euros a day. Research shows that 70% of companies are unable to recover lost or damaged data after an accident or attack. This can be attributed to the inconsistency between different storage systems, technologies or a destroyed dataset. It turns out that e.g. many of the attacks or business interruptions would be avoidable. That’s why a consistent privacy and conservation strategy is essential. Thus, the backup and recoverability of the data is the most important insurance of a company.
What consequences does a failure have?
IT failures can have serious consequences, and can cause various types of damage:
- Production downtime
- Revenue loss
- Damages and penalties
- Loss of market share
- Staff costs by overtime
- Image damage at customers and suppliers
- High fines
How do I protect my company?
Conventional storage or tape technologies no longer fully meet the requirements currently required. Both the tape and tape technology have advantages and disadvantages in terms of their backup and restore capabilities. With storage-based technologies, hardware defects and malicious applications lead to loss of data in tape-based systems, as do environmental effects such as temperature fluctuations.
The ideal solution must therefore combine the advantageous properties of both technologies and exclude their disadvantages. This is exactly what the sayFUSE backup and restore platform achieves with its patented technology. Twelve backup drives ensure reliable data backup through parallel / multi-stream backup and migration.
