Have You Lost Sight of Your Data?

Have You Lost Sight of Your Data?

Organizations are struggling with two competing forces: demand for uncompromising information protection and access and the exponential increase in data growth and sprawl. As organizations fight these challenging trends, the stakes are growing higher than ever. When organizations cannot effectively identify their critical data among the junk, time, money and protection effort is wasted on an environment where 41% of the data is questionable value.

Changing the status quo requires 3 core steps:

Gain visibility into what you store: You can accurately assess your complete data inventory and expose hidden vulnerabilities and costs with clear line of sight into your environment.

Match protection policies to the data they protect: You can properly assign backup policies to protect and store data by understanding data and its value as an asset or liability.

Forecast your storage demands: As data grows 39% year over year, becomes increasingly fluid, and new opportunities for cheap and efficient storage exist, you can better plan and prepare for the future by understanding what you have and how it grows overtime.
