Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss.
The importance of data protection increases as the amount of data created and stored continues to grow at unprecedented rates. There is also little tolerance for downtime that can make it impossible to access important information.
Consequently, a large part of a data protection strategy is ensuring that data can be restored quickly after any corruption or loss. Protecting data from compromise and ensuring data privacy are other key components of data protection.
The coronavirus pandemic caused millions of employees to work from home, resulting in the need for remote data protection. Businesses must adapt to ensure they are protecting data wherever employees are, from a central data center in the office to laptops at home. In this guide, explore what data protection entails, key strategies and trends, and compliance requirements to keep out in front of the many challenges of protecting critical workloads.
CODELANCER™ provide controls for assured identities and access management. Identity and access management includes people, processes and systems that are used to manage access to enterprise resources by assuring the identity of an entity is verified and is granted the correct level of access based on this assured identity. Audit logs of activity such as successful and failed authentication and access attempts should be kept by the application/solution.
Storage technologies that organizations can use to protect data include a disk or tape backup that copies designated information to a disk-based storage array or a tape cartridge device so it can be safely stored. Tape-based backup is a strong option for data protection against cyber attacks.
Although access to tapes can be slow, they are portable and inherently offline when not loaded in a drive, and thus safe from threats over a network.
Organizations can use mirroring to create an exact replica of a website or files so they're available from more than one place. Storage snapshots can automatically generate a set of pointers to information stored on tape or disk, enabling faster data recovery, while continuous data protection (CDP) backs up all the data in an enterprise whenever a change is made.
