Dormant malware – beware the lurking threat to your data

In today’s constantly evolving cybersecurity landscape, companies must adopt a proactive approach to data protection to effectively defend against repeated cyberattack attempts, as it is no longer a matter of “if” or “when”, but rather “how often” they will get hit. Modern-day malware attacks no longer only target organisations’ data, but also their backup solutions to ensure that an extortion attempt can be carried out...

Don’t struggle with ransomware mitigation alone when there is help available in the form of managed services

Blurring the lines between data management and cybersecurity – no longer separate priorities for the modern enterprise

While data management focuses on processes that include a combination of different functions that are aimed at ensuring data in corporate systems is accurate, available and accessible; cybersecurity deals...

Data management is a necessity, not a nice to have – even for SMEs

There is a perception among Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) that data, while important, is not as critical as it is for a larger business. However, this could not be further from the truth. Data is literally the lifeblood of the modern organisation, no matter the size. Without it, productivity ceases, particularly in a world where work-from-home has become a requirement. Added to this, the...

PoPI and Covid-19 – Data strategies have to adapt to change

Normally, DR and BC is considered critical in the event of natural disasters, hardware failure and cybercrime in order to ensure business can continue with minimal...

When data backup goes wrong

Businesses know that they need to have backups as part of a data management and Disaster Recovery (DR) strategy.

To ensure DR and Business Continuity (BC) strategies are effective, businesses need to understand how and where backups can...

Going the cloud route does not mean abdicating responsibility for security

Moving into the cloud has many benefits if done correctly, from increased agility and flexibility to scalability and moving to an Opex rather than Capex model. However, one thing businesses need to always take into account is data protection and security. While public Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) need to ensure they have the highest levels of security in place, the onus is never solely on...

Data management – grudge purchase or strategic business tool?

Work from Home (WFH) is here to stay, and it has changed the way we access business data. The monolithic server structure has firmly given way to cloud-based storage systems that enable anytime, anywhere access, along with greater flexibility and agility – as well as new challenges. Organisations need to change the way they approach data management and protection to cater for this, but far...
