All business processes rely on high availability of mission critical data and fast recovery in case of an error, theft, disaster, or malicious activities. Continuous and secure data flow is the blood line of any modern enterprise. Mission critical data must be protected and secured, but also easily and readily accessible to all business processes.
As much as 20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster every five years, causing loss of critical data (CloudBackup's Facts about Data Loss: Richmond House Group) and 60% of them will shut down within six months of the disaster.
About 70% of data loss is contributed to: accidental deletion, disk or system failure, viruses, fire, ransomware, and other malicious activities. Limitations of the traditional, built-in, backup solutions prevented two thirds of these companies to restore their lost data due to either an inadequate backup strategy or complete lack of one.
Backup of mission critical data is the integral part of every Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Business Continuity Planning (BCP) strategy.
Modern data backup strategy must be flexible enough to mitigate all risks listed above. Such a strategy must include multiple copies of mission critical data made on geographically dispersed storage mediums as well as variety of automation options to match the specifics of each given destination.
Below is a table which summarizes suggested backup strategies based on the most likely causes of data loss in today's dynamic environment.
