Business Backup Solutions, Comport, Shares Crucial Reasons BaaS Is Critical For Data Center Security
08:40:39 - 05 February 2019


RAMSEY, N.J., Feb. 5, 2019/PRNewswire/ -- Comport, an industry leader in business backup solutions, recently held a discussion about the top reasons that BaaS is critical for the security of data centers. With more sophisticated infrastructures creating more opportunities for security breaches, traditional backup may no longer be a viable solution.

"The statistics all point to outsourced backup as the solution that protects against security breaches, insufficient backup testing, and a lack of staff or resources," statedEric Young, Principal Cloud Architect of Comport. "Virtual infrastructures will only become more complex with more data to collect. The time to upgrade is now."

Here are just a few of the reasons that BaaS is critical for data center security.

  • Protecting against cyber theft - 2016 saw 4,000 unique ransomware attacks, with 15% of the SMBs experiencing an attack losing out on revenue. Digital theft is becoming more of a trend, not less. As organizations grow, they become a more tempting target for cyber criminals, companies without a BaaS solution have more to lose than they can afford.
  • Fines for data loss - Even if a traditional backup solution is successful at recovering some of the data lost after an incident, it may not be able to mitigate fines or damaging headlines. Inadequate protection of data can cost a company millions of dollars, as in the cases of AT&T and Target (both fined by the FCC).
  • Corrupted data - BaaS solutions combined with DRaaS are much more effective at bringing back data in a holistic way. Information loss is the number one cost component of recovering from a cyberattack. 33% of companies experience a disruption in business, and 21% experience a loss of revenue.
  • Seamless recovery - The larger a company, the more complex a full recovery can be. Relying on a traditional backup solution gives your IT department the full responsibility for data retention and infrastructure examination. Wouldn't it be nice to have someone to lean on during your time of need?
