While the concept of enterprise data protection is nothing new, it certainly has taken center stage in recent months with the rise of headline-grabbing ransomware attacks. According to the FBI’s 2020 Internet Crime Report, the Internet Crime Complaint Center received 791,790 cybercrime complaints in 2020, with reported losses exceeding $4.2 billion. This represents nearly a 70% increase in total complaints compared to 2019. What’s even more alarming is that these attacks are continuing to accelerate in both frequency and sophistication—putting every organization’s data at risk.

Yet the risk of a cyberattack isn’t the only reason to keep data protection top of mind. Data center outages come in many forms and often occur at the most unfortunate of times. An unplanned uninterruptible power system (UPS) failure, human error, or weather event has the potential of sending an organization into a data-driven tailspin. With data now woven into nearly every business function, rapid access to data for disaster recovery and data reuse is no longer just a good idea. It’s critical for any high-performing organization that wants to sustain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

In The Gorilla Guide to Modern Data Protection, you’ll gain the insights and guidance necessary to effectively safeguard your data—unarguably your organization’s most irreplaceable asset. The guide will help ensure and improve your data protection and recovery strategies and set you on the right track for the future.

In the guide, you’ll find:

  • Key trends driving infrastructure modernization. Discover why the data protection landscape is under greater pressure than ever before with rising demand for data storage capacity, decreased tolerance for downtime, and heightened security concerns.
  • The advantages of flash in backup and recovery. Explore the benefits of architecting a modern approach to data protection using flash storage, including the advantages it brings in terms of speed and latency. With “time to data” as the ultimate measure of disaster recovery success, you’ll learn how flash storage, augmented by data reduction (compression and deduplication), can significantly improve restore times.
  • How to implement a hybrid-cloud backup solution. Learn how leveraging Pure Storage® FlashBlade® and FlashArray technology improves the efficiency of backup and the speed of restore processes more than any other backup and restore methodology.

The old ways of doing backup and recovery are simply not up to today’s challenging environments. More data is being created than ever before, and it’s living anywhere and everywhere. Make sure that your data isn’t just protected and resilient but also driving opportunities for increased profitability.

Use the Gorilla Guide as your go-to resource to ensure you’re not left behind by organizations that have already moved into a new era in enterprise data protection. And gain confidence with a modern approach that scales with your needs and keeps your data—wherever it is—safe, secure, and easily recoverable.
