"By Hayden Sadler, Country Manager for South Africa at Infinidat
As cyberattacks continue to rise, enterprise storage cyber resilience and data protection is essential for enterprises – it is a matter of when and not if an enterprise will suffer from a cyberattack. The pressing challenge enterprises are experiencing is that cybercriminals have evolved their attacks targeting not just primary storage and production data but also secondary repositories and data backups. A data breach can have catastrophic consequences on an organisation and render unprepared businesses offline for extended periods of time as they scramble to recover. However, cybersecurity alone is no longer sufficient. While preventing a cyberattack is the optimal strategic approach, it is not always possible, and when an incident occurs, cyber resilience is key to reducing downtime to a matter of minutes instead of days, weeks or even months."
