Data protection threats
In June 2016, EMC (EMC) announced the results of the EMC Global Data Protection Index 2016. The research report revealed that ~23% of businesses surveyed experienced data loss or unplanned system disruptions due to external security breaches. Taking internal breaches into consideration, this number rose to 36%.
To counter this threat, EMC is launching a new Isolated Recovery Solutions product. According to EMC, this product will help enterprises to create a virtual panic room for their most valuable data, isolating the data from networked systems that could be compromised in a cyber attack.
Threats to cloud data
According to the research report, ~30% of information technology environments will be based in the public cloud. EMC stated that organizations need to include cloud applications in overall data protection strategies.
EMC offers a comprehensive portfolio of solutions for cloud-to-cloud as well and on premise-to-cloud data protection solutions.
EMC has a range of data protection solutions such as EMC ProtectPoint, EMC zDP and EMC Enterprise Copy Data Management, which help to deliver benefits to enterprises.
According to the company’s press release, “EMC has a portfolio of data protection and availability services to help customers ensure their most valuable data is secure from cyber attacks and meets organizational availability and RTO requirements.”
