The information explosion, the proliferation of endpoint devices, growing user volumes and new computing models like cloud, social business and big data have created new vulnerabilities. Data security is a moving target—as data grows, more sophisticated threats emerge; the number of regulations increase; and changing economic times make it difficult to secure and protect data. Because data is a critical component of daily business operations, it is essential to ensure privacy and protect data no matter where it resides. Different types of information have different protection requirements; therefore, organizations must take a holistic and systematic approach to safeguarding information.
The perimeter continues to dissolve, and the definition of endpoint is evolving, according to results of the SANS 2016 Endpoint Security Survey, now in its third year.
As we might expect, 90% or more consider desktops, servers, routers, firewalls and printers to be endpoints that need to be protected. After that, respondents include other less-typical devices in their definition of endpoints that warrant protection: 71% include building security (access/ surveillance), 59% include employee-owned mobile devices and 40% consider industrial control systems as endpoints that need to be protected. Some respondents also consider POS devices, smart cars, emulated endpoints in the cloud and wearables as endpoints needing protection, highlighting the diversity of thinking among respondents.
Data—dynamic, in demand and distributed—is challenging to
secure. But you need to protect sensitive data, whether it’s stored
on-premises, off-site, or in big-data, private- or hybrid-cloud
environments. Protecting sensitive data can take many forms, but
nearly any organization needs to keep its data accessible, protect
data from loss or compromise, and comply with a raft of regulations
and mandates. These can include the Payment Card Industry Data
Security Standard (PCI DSS), the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the European Union (EU)
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Even in the cloud, where
you may have less immediate control, you must still control your
sensitive data—and compliance mandates still apply.
Having the right tools and establishing key processes in advance can help prevent or mitigate the impact of a DDoS attack. Learn more by downloading this complimentary toolkit with research and best practices from Gartner and Arbor Networks.

Are your company’s employees using Sharepoint, Dropbox for Business or other enterprise cloud file-sharing services? Do your users want to use standard market aps to view and edit shared files on the go? Are you concerned about preventing enterprise data leakage from mobile devices? Download the datasheet to learn about approaches that address these challenges so that your enterprise can use these services while ensuring enterprise data is protected.
Your data is everywhere. It’s in the cloud, in virtual environments, in remote offices, and on mobile devices. Plus, there’s more of it, and much of it is business-critical, meaning you need to back up larger volumes of data than ever before without adding costs or bandwidth. Even more importantly, you need the ability to restore data quickly in the event of a disaster, failure, outage. The cost of data protection is higher now more than ever.
Although ESG continues to see the vast majority of IT organizations living within a disk-plus-tape world, no one can argue against the idea that the cloud is becoming a viable and attractive component of any data protection architecture. Modern disk and tape solutions have overwhelming benefits for ROI, but those benefits can often be expanded by leveraging the economics and additional agility capabilities of a cloud tier. And all of those tiers would benefit from smarter data protection and preservation mechanisms through the combination of both backups and archiving.
