All organizations need to face an unpleasant truth: It is not a question of “If” they will experience a ransomware attack; it is a matter of “When.” While cybersecurity software serves as a first-line defense against ransomware, IT leaders recognize cybersecurity software alone does not thwart all ransomware attacks. And as an assumption an attack may succeed, these leaders also recognize they must protect their production and backup data. Immutable storage can help.
Object storage used to be just the slow final resting place for archive data. That is no longer true. As enterprises shift to cloud-native technologies, object storage is often used for active data. With the growing importance of object storage in the enterprise, and the trend toward software-defined storage solutions, organizations would do well to pay special attention to the data security and data protection features of SDS object storage solutions.
If you already use cloud storage to store some or all your archival or backup data, you are in good company. A recent survey of nearly 600 companies found that over 80 percent of them already use the cloud. This potentially creates a new challenge. They find their cloud storage needs change and they must migrate their data from one cloud to another. When this infrequent situation arises, they will find four cloud-to-cloud data migration options available to them.
