Backup, Recovery, and Security in Today's Business World
Last year, we saw a record number of Ransomware attacks in the US and globally. Month over month, attacks have been growing at double digit rates and are continuing to rise. Many of today’s top organizations have identified protecting against Ransomware attacks as a top priority for this year, and beyond. Since Ransomware is dependent upon the affected user not having a clear strategy for Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, isn’t it time you considered one?Hewlett Packard Enterprise's approach to simplifying Hybrid IT with recent acquisitions of Simplivity and Nimble Storage. Also a look at HPE Synergy, the first platform built from the ground up for Composable Infrastructure, is a single infrastructure that reduces operational complexity for traditional workloads and increases operational velocity for the new breed of applications and services. Disasters happen. Security threats are real. How do you minimize the potential risk to your business assets and also provide effective recovery capabilities in the wake of a disaster or threat. iaGuardian offers a suite of solutions that include onsite and offsite backup and recovery solutions, as well as security resources that include assessments, penetration testing, vulnerability scanning, risk management, policy development and more.

From Backup to Availability: What's New With Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5
With its private cloud infrastructure—already one of the largest in the world—growing quickly, VMware began to investigate ways to reduce deployment and management tasks for new services while improving application performance and lowering costs. The company found a solution in its own VMware Cloud Foundation, which provides the easiest way to deploy and run a Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC). Cloud Foundation leverages a next generation of hyper-convergence by bringing together VMware's market leading compute, storage, and network virtualization software into a natively integrated platform to deliver enterprise class capabilities with a simple operational model that can be consumed both on the private and public cloud.Ransomware is a type of malware that lets attackers find and encrypt your most important data. They then offer to provide the decryption key only if you pay a ransom, within a short time. This is the number-one IT security challenge that you face today, with resource-limited small and mid-size businesses the most likely targets. A quick look at the complete Barracuda family of solutions that work together to help you detect, prevent, and recover from ransomware attacks.Everyone knows that Veeam Backup & Replication is a powerful, easy-to-use and affordable backup and Availability solution that provides fast, flexible and reliable recovery of virtualized applications and data, bringing VM (virtual machine) backup and replication together in a single software solution. Learn how Veeam outperforms legacy backup to deliver Availability for the Always-On Enterprise, meeting SLAs for recovery time and point objectives (RTPO™) of <15 minutes for ALL applications and data.

Data Protection Beyond Backup: What else can your backup provider do for you?
Imagine being able to take yourself from primary to secondary to cloud with a new range of solutions that eliminates your storage problems and your management headaches. With StorageCraft’s award-winning data protection reliability, and the infinite scale-out power of OneBlox storage, you can have a more intelligent approach to data management. StorageCraft solutions give you peace of mind about what to protect, where to put it, and how to restore it, no matter what kind of environment you’re in.We live in an era of high-speed wireless, flash storage and cloud computing on tap. But it doesn’t always feel that way, does it? The spinning ball on your desktop, the query that takes hours to run—IT delays are still a fact of life. That’s one of the reasons for the surge of interest in flash storage. But anyone expecting flash alone to solve their performance problems is in for a disappointment. New research shows that slow storage is just one reason for delays between data requests and data delivery—a phenomenon known as the app-data gap. To close the app-data gap, IT organizations need to leverage predictive analytics that harness data gathered from thousands of sensors across every piece of the data center. Attend this session to hear how the Nimble Storage Predictive Flash Platform delivers data velocity by using InfoSight predictive analytics and a Unified Flash Fabric to close the app-data gap.Randsomware is a $60B criminal enterprise! It is not a question of if, but when you will be hit with a ransomware attack. No matter how realistic the response to a ransomware attack may be, agreeing to pay the ransom is a far greater expense than keeping your security and backups up to date. Ransomware is a major crime – one that preys on the vulnerability of its victims. Since there is no guarantee that future attacks will not happen, it’s wiser to stick to the first line of defense: backup! Learn how you can easily survive an attack with Unitrends.
