Drastically lower complexity and costs – The future is called Cyber Protection.

The times where classic backups were enough to keep your data protected are over. The rapidly growing complexity of IT systems and the exploding amounts of data make storage and protection of IT workloads costly and complicated—and complicated often means neither well protected or secure.

As companies are currently switching to heavy use of home networks rather than secure corporate IT environments, security for IT users or even Managed Service Providers (MSPs) is not always their highest priority. They just want to get the system up and running quickly. Home networks are generally less secure and often include additional privately connected devices with potentially insufficient protection and introduce the risk of making it easier for hackers to break into the network. Moreover, the number of users and locations plus devices, types and versions of operating systems and applications requiring protections is increasing hugely.

We’re also dependant on IT now! Only with IT can we remain productive remotely or when working from home—it’s almost reached the status of a basic requirement! It’s exactly this reason that protecting our IT systems is critical to business, as without appropriate protection its reliability can’t be ensured.
