The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated cloud adoption and has made it clear that cloud is the future. It has caused many businesses to either begin their cloud journeys, or start using cloud-native tools.
While the importance of the cloud is known by many businesses, it is less commonly known that the journey is as important as the destination.
Transitioning to the cloud is a continuous and comprehensive process that requires businesses to develop a unified, cloud-centric model.
Failure to implement the correct cloud strategy results in a fragmented system that increases the cost and complexity of managing business systems.
A report conducted by Veritas and entitled “The 2020 Ransomware Resiliency Report” finds that organisations that have implemented a cloud strategy, are struggling to identify best practices to ensure that data is both protected and secure.
52% of organisations have had flat or decreased funding levels for IT security during the COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when distributed workforces and increased demand for edge data protection has put additional strain on security resources.
This statistic shows that insufficient investment is creating a resiliency gap that is putting their data at risk. Enterprises are mostly unaware of who should be responsible for their data being protected against increasing threats and ransomware attacks.
