As organizations strive to remain agile while keeping their data secure from sophisticated cyber threats, many are moving away from the do-it-yourself (DIY) approach to IT and accelerating cloud adoption. While most cloud-based solutions help lower expenses by reducing operational overhead, they’re ill-equipped to enhance cyber resilience or accommodate pivots to hybrid and multicloud environments. Modernize your data management approach and keep your business resilient with backup as a service (BaaS). It’s the ideal way to save, simplify, and secure your data.
Managing siloed on-premises and cloud environments is complex and creates unnecessary IT stress. Fragmented data management architecture also expands the attack vector for cybercriminals to exploit. Time that should be spent on innovation is instead wasted on managing multiple-point products. IT must already contend with how legacy products can (or can’t) handle newer, unsupported data sources like distributed databases, Kubernetes, and SaaS apps. Now they’re being asked to move to the cloud with no easy path forward.
A single, multicloud platform that supports both self-service management and SaaS provider-managed infrastructure across hybrid cloud and multicloud makes better business sense. Here’s why. You’ll:
While the cloud can be a convenient place to store data, it’s not immune to cybersecurity threats. Misconfigurations, insufficient identity, credential and access management, and a lack of secure cloud architecture can all put your cloud data at risk.
A modern cloud backup solution based on Zero-Trust design principles can help enhance cyber resilience. Immutable snapshots, combined with strict access controls (multifactor authentication, granular role-based access controls, a flexible key management system), can deter bad actors from accessing and destroying your cloud-based data. You can also:
Capital expense budgeting and lengthy procurement cycles for traditional backup and recovery point products are incompatible with today’s unpredictable business climate. Legacy backup solutions require forklift upgrades, regular patching, and maintenance, and your business can’t afford the corresponding downtime. Instead, organizations are embracing modern BaaS solutions. Not only do they preserve cash and improve cost management, but accelerating the shift to an operational cost model lets you:
Amidst global uncertainty and increased cyber threats, you need a data security and management solution that has your back. Choose modern BaaS that doesn’t require you to deploy yet another point product to protect your SaaS applications.
