As we move further into the age of high availability and instant gratification we must adapt our business practices to this ever changing demand. Similar to most markets, data protection requires a far different product than it did at the turn of the century. “Out of sight, out of mind” is not an acceptable strategy for off-site backup.

Small and medium businesses cannot afford to lose their data. Research shows that even brief server failures can lead smaller businesses to shut their doors for good. In light of this, businesses need workable backup and disaster recovery plans. Until recently, however, most backup and disaster recovery solutions were aimed at large enterprise. Today, the environment is changing. Protecting data is becoming more and more important and new technologies are making backup and recovery strategies viable to smaller businesses.
TS Tech is an active, vibrant MSP in Pennsylvania. They have a wide variety of clients and operate with a fixed-rate business model. In order for them to get solid ROI, they have to use the best, most reliable technologies. When it comes to backup and disaster recovery, TS Tech president says StorageCraft ShadowProtect not only protects his clients, but saves him money by cutting down on backup and disaster recovery tickets.
There are many case studies with real data extolling the benefits of cloud computing and virtualization - the twin forces behind the transformation of the way companies of all shapes and sizes 'do' computing. But to take part in this information revolution, it's critical to have the right underpinnings. That means not only upgrading the decade-old Windows Server 2003 operating system software that still drives more than 12 million servers, but also upgrading the underlying hardware to ensure you realize all the benefits the software can deliver. The combination Windows Server 2012 and the latest Intel Xeon based server hardware should be part of an IT strategy for companies and departments looking to modernize their IT infrastructure. This checklist will identify 10 of the top issues driving the need for server OS software and hardware upgrades.

Complexity, globalization and digitalization are just some of the elements at play in the risk landscape—and data is becoming a core part of understanding and navigating risk.
How do modern finance leaders view, navigate and manage enterprise risk with data? Dun & Bradstreet surveyed global finance leaders across industries and business types. Here are the top trends that emerged from the study:
1. The Enterprise Risk & Strategy Disconnect—Finance leaders are using data and managing risk programs, but over 65% of finance leaders say there’s missing link between risk and strategy.
2. The Risks of the Use and Misuse of Data—Up to 50% of the data used to manage modern risk is disconnected. Only 15% of leaders are confident about the quality of their data.
3. Risky Relationships—Only 20% of finance leaders say the data they use to manage risk is fully integrated and shared.

In this whitepaper, we present data from the first ever large-scale scientific study that shows how video performance quality affects viewer behavior. The results help to shed light on important considerations that can help businesses craft a successful online video strategy – boosting their business bottom line and ultimately reaping the rewards of online video’s vast potential.
Cloud-based data presents a wealth of potential information for organizations seeking to build and maintain competitive advantage in their industries. However, as discussed in “The truth about information governance and the cloud,” most organizations will be challenged to reconcile their legacy on-premises data with new third-party cloud-based data. It is within these “hybrid” environments that people will look for insights to make critical decisions.
NPMD solutions are typically not directly involved in the actual card cardholder transaction. However, given that many can potentially capture and transmit cardholder data they must be viewed as an integral part of a business’ PCI DSS compliance strategy, especially when investigating data breaches for the purposes of reporting or remediation.
Therefore, beyond satisfying your service delivery monitoring and troubleshooting requirements, be sure to verify your NPMD solution protects cardholder data and aids your efforts in PCI DSS compliance.
Too often, organizations mistake electronic file sync and share as synonymous with endpoint backup, leaving critical data unprotected. In an ideal data management strategy, endpoint backup works alongside file sync and share to silently protect every version of every file. Together, the two technologies mitigate the growing risk of data loss to data breach, ransomware, or insider threat.
Data loss remains a serious issue , and data loss prevention is an important tool for companies to reduce the risk of a breach. The Ponemon Institute conducted a global survey of 1,000 IT decision makers, to develop benchmarks for data loss prevention incidents, visibility, and maturity.
Data Protection is no longer just a problem that resides at the endpoint. This ebook takes you through the top use cases, ranging from visibility and control of sanctioned/unsanctioned cloud applications to demonstrating compliance across cloud environments.
New data sources are fueling innovation while stretching the limitations of traditional data management strategies and structures. Data warehouses are giving way to purpose built platforms more capable of meeting the real-time needs of a more demanding end user and the opportunities presented by Big Data. Significant strategy shifts are under way to transform traditional data ecosystems by creating a unified view of the data terrain necessary to support Big Data and real-time needs of innovative enterprises companies.

Around-the-clock global operations, data growth, and server virtualization all together can complicate protection and recovery strategies. They affect when and how often you can perform backups, increase the time required to back up, and ultimately affect your ability to successfully restore. These challenges can force lower standards for recovery objectives, such as reducing the frequency of backup jobs or protecting fewer applications, both of which can introduce risk. High-speed snapshot technologies and application integration can go a long way toward meeting these needs, and they have quickly become essential elements of a complete protection strategy. But snapshot copies have often been managed separately from traditional backup processes. Features like cataloging for search and retrieval as well as tape creation usually require separate management and do not fully leverage snapshot capabilities. To eliminate complexity and accelerate protection and recovery, you need a solution

ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.
