Running a successful business starts with protecting your data

While there’s no such thing as an easy year in a complex, dynamic field like technology, 2020 has been particularly challenging for corporate IT decision-makers – especially in the area of data center transformation. This year, as employees have moved in droves toward remote work, they’ve begun accessing data from many different touchpoints, using different devices as well. This raises serious questions for IT about how to shift gears with data management.

The bottom line is, it’s crucial to make security your focus, as keeping your data protected is the cornerstone of a successful business. Every organization today is data-driven – people need to access their key files in order to tackle their daily work projects, collaborate with teammates and ultimately get things done. Given that business depends on the constant, interrupted flow of data, it’s clear that lurking cyberthreats present a serious danger to the stability of your operations.

Recent studies from Dell Technologies have shed light on just how crucial security is. Dell’s research shows that the average cost of a cyberattack in the world today is $13 million*, and that many attacks go on for a long time before organizations even detect them. The average time it takes to identify and contain a breach is 280 days. Given these data points, it should come as no surprise that 79% of global executives rank containing cyberattacks as one of their highest risk management priorities.

So what should you do about cybersecurity here and now? Dell Technologies’ solution is to implement their award-winning PowerEdge servers, which represent the bedrock of the modern data center. Dell’s servers are built from the ground up to ensure companies have a single, fully integrated platform with a flexible, scalable design. This creates a foundation of consistency across server-centric data centers. In other words, you can truly modernize without compromise.

Adopting Dell Technologies’ data center solutions offers a number of benefits. For one, there’s data protection – your business-critical data will be kept safe from ransomware and other types of cyberattacks. Secondly, you’ll be able to identify signs of future data corruption using machine learning and intelligent analytics. And finally, you’ll be able to accelerate the recovery of “known good” data in the event of an attack, helping your organization to quickly resume regular operations.
