Your Data – Your Responsibility

Many companies assume that because they’ve migrated to SaaS-based applications, that SaaS providers are entirely responsible for looking after the data produced by their applications.

However, SaaS vendors are only responsible for data availability and not data recovery, so if a ransomware attack happens on their watch and your data gets wiped, they’re not liable for recovering it.

For this and other reasons, a comprehensive data protection and disaster recovery system is still so important.

12 Ways to Manage Your Data Storage Strategy

Data must be easy to access but stored in a secure enough manner to protect it from malicious attacks, machine failures or human errors that could jeopardize its integrity.

The good news is that the tools available to build an effective data storage management practice have improved considerably as data capacities have grown to petabyte scales.

But it’s unlikely that any one technology or methodology will be enough, so a toolbox approach to storage management is often the best way to ensure the best fit for your environment.


Is Managed Detection and Response Right For You?
