Navigating Uncertainty: Economics, Cybercrime, and More

If the recent June 2023 Fortune CEO survey is any indication, the #1 concern of CEOs is still the “R” word…. Recession, with Cybersecurity taking a very close #2 position. Inflation and a slowing economy have led to a number of layoffs across all industries and across the globe and, by all accounts, cybercrimes will cost companies over eight billion US dollars this year!

As a CEO you need to tread carefully during these uncertain economic times and cybercrime filled environments and make each decision count. Budgets are tight or declining in most companies. So, now is the time to make sure every dollar spent will make a definite, quantifiable impact on the business, in the shortest amount of time.

Data is the lifeblood of today’s enterprise. The management and security of that data is paramount to the enterprise to enable successful operations, e-commerce, customer interaction and data mining with AI tools. Providing the right enterprise storage infrastructure to support the enterprise’s mission in these tough times is a challenge facing CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs in all parts of the world.

Where do you start?

Realizing that the economics of the enterprise storage infrastructure goes beyond what the purchase cost is and involves a complex total cost of ownership (TCO) calculation, is a good first step. Additionally, these systems must do so much more today including: supporting modern backup and recovery software, fast point-in-time snapshots, immutable snapshots, ransomware detection and remediation, data efficiencies like compression, and powerful data replication between data centers and to the cloud, to name a few. All with ease of setup, daily management, and autonomous automation.

How do you get this?

Third-party references, peer reviews, analyst reports, and talking to CEOs, CFOs, and CIOs at similarly sized enterprises to discover their experiences, are all good avenues. But it will take time and a huge amount of effort to gather, assess and analyze all these data points. So, what if you could go to one place, to one company that could show you all this:
