The explosive growth and distribution of data, combined with the threats posed by ransomware and other cyberattacks, make core functions including data backup, recovery, and migration more critical than ever.
Organizations that fail to address basic needs can’t hope to capitalize on digital data’s full potential. But to meet these core requirements, organizations must overcome several tough challenges associated with two pervasive trends:
