The Real Cost of not Securing Your Data

Amid the recent security fiascos at Facebook, Equifax, Sony, and others, public demand for iron-clad protection of data has never been been more prominent. At the forefront of the changing cyber security landscape is a move away from on-premises data storage towards more dynamic cloud-based platforms. Research shows that cloud services outperform traditional data strategies in risk identification, response time, and system elasticity, and new hyper-converged infrastructure offerings can further increase dependability. Companies that demonstrate a high awareness of cutting-edge technologies and privacy issues will earn a competitive advantage over those who fail to adapt.
