Today’s threat landscape
Businesses today are under pressure from their digital transformation. They need to effectively manage data that is becoming distributed, dynamic, and diverse. Each day, the threat landscape becomes more sophisticated and increasingly dangerous for IT environments. As administrators and operators of data and information, storage engineers are expected to manage and to maintain data in a secure manner throughout its lifecycle.
Data associated with customer-facing applications, as well as internal applications that drive critical business processes and workflows, must be continuously available. Unplanned downtime for any reason can put the enterprise at great risk in many ways. Revenue or profitability can be severely impacted. Manufacturing processes may be forced to shut down. Customer response times may grind to a halt. And, damage to the company’s reputation can be irreversible.
