CBTS Offsite Backup
IT professionals are looking toward managed service providers that leverage best-in-breed technology to solve the backup issues
Protecting critical data is a challenge for every organization. Businesses of all sizes have seen a sharp increase in the amount of data they must store, and also protect. Customers need innovative solutions to help them protect the increased amount of data. In addition, government regulations and requests for legal discovery strain the resources and capabilities of traditional data protection solutions. Failure to comply or provide information in a timely fashion can result in significant costs and penalties.
Furthermore, recent legislation has exposed the risk of shipping tapes either encrypted or unencrypted as one of the greatest security concerns in today’s IT infrastructure. According to Gartner, there are more than 4 million remote offices in the U.S. alone, at least 60 percent of all enterprise data resides at remote offices, and remote office data continues to grow at more than 50 percent per year. The key challenges of remote office data protection include a lack of trained local staff, limited WAN bandwidth, the high cost of obtaining additional bandwidth, failure-prone equipment, manual processes, lack of centralized management, and high data-growth rates. The risk of data loss or exposure from remote sites can be extremely high. As a result, IT professionals are looking toward managed service providers that leverage best-in-breed technology to solve these issues.
