Chris Larkins, Enterprise Business Unit Manager at Tarsus Distribution
The cyber security landscape has evolved profoundly. I’ve watched entire workforces moving home during the pandemic, while data growth has seemed unstoppable. Both factors have driven complexity. It’s been tough for CIOs to keep up - and then you add new data security and privacy regulations into the mix.
Increasingly ubiquitous cloud technology can provide the ideal platform on which to run business processes and applications, and ease CIO headaches. But wherever these workloads sit, data protection becomes vital. Without it, businesses can suffer financial losses, regulatory fines, and, most importantly, a loss of customer confidence.
CIOs know it, too. Research by ESG revealed that 15% of organisations said they could tolerate zero downtime at all for their mission-critical applications, and a whopping 90% said they could not tolerate more than one hour of lost “mission-critical” data. The future is data-driven, but data is also a CIO’s biggest headache because of its exponential growth, complexity and the stringent data protection and compliance involved.
