VMware: On-Site Protection: 3 Data Security DRaaS Benefits


In 2013, 1 billion stolen data records were exposed online. Three years later, that figure would reach more than 4.2 billion. The findings, issued by Risk Based SecurityData Breach QuickView Report, also highlighted another remarkable statistic: that the business sector makes up for nearly 81 percent of all confidential data exposed online.

This statistic is stunning, but it could be a lot worse. Inga Goddijn, executive vice president of Risk Based Security, said, in an interview with Dark Reading, that the findings show every organization is at risk for data loss.

“What [RBS’s] data shows is that really, no industry is immune to data loss,” Goddijn said. “Any organization that has sensitive data—which is every organization with employees or confidential information—can be a target.”

When a company’s data center shuts down, be it due to cybercriminal activity or natural disaster, the recovery platform used by IT can drastically affect the success rate of data recovery efforts. Relying too heavily on legacy systems for data recovery depletes resources and cuts into IT’s data repair and retrieval time. IT solutions have evolved with the cloud. With VMware vCloud® Air™ Network, organizations can find a VMware-certified Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) provider that will offer security, resource savings and real-time disaster recovery.

The Cost of Compromised Company Data

According to Invincea’s 2016 Cyberthreat Defense Report, the number of IT decision makers admitting they’ve suffered a successful data breach in 2014 was 62 percent. In 2015, that figure grew to 71 percent. Last year, 76 percent admitted a breach took place within their networks. That figure is growing, and it’ll likely continue to grow as more small to medium-sized businesses and startups further expose themselves online.
