With theft, cyberattacks, physical damage, and data loss threatening even the most secure organization, businesses are up against many risks. It’s been reported that the actual cost of losing a computer can be upwards of $49,000 and while laptop theft may not seem as common a threat as a cryptovirus, growing at over 40% in 2017, statistics do show that a laptop is stolen every 53 seconds.
Moreover, 52% of laptop theft occurs in the workplace and 10% of small businesses have been victims of laptop theft. In addition to compromising privacy, unmet regulations and invaluable business data loss, infected and unprotected files are often impossible to recover, making backup of workstations and laptops essential for any organization, large or small.
IT Manager Needs and Backup Use Cases
IT has very specific backup protection needs. With data being a top priority in any organization, restoring laptop files after a cyberattack has to be quick and simple, while lost or stolen laptops need to be reconstructed immediately. Furthermore, IT managers need to be able to empower users to manage their own data recovery jobs to save both costs and time. Associated data storage volumes for backup and disaster recovery can also pose high and unnecessary costs. So what exactly do organizations need to do?
With so much data driving business operations and revenue in multiple locations, IT managers need continuous backup everywhere. Solutions must be able to restore files from any destination ideally from a browser and in complete security. They must also manage rising costs by reducing the volume of stored data. In the case of stolen or lost devices, organizations need the ability to completely rebuild a machine with the system, data and applications. Lastly, with the immediate and constant need for file access, IT managers must be able to protect a system without impacting the user.
Top Challenges & Solutions to Backup & Recovery
There are challenges to implementing successful recovery and backup strategies. From small IT teams, low bandwidth connections, and multiple physical storage locations all over the globe, organizations need effective, simple, user-friendly protection and recovery solutions.
