How can you ensure your customers’ cloud security?

IDG report that 73 percent of organisations have at least one application, or a portion of their computing infrastructure already in the cloud, with a further 17 per cent planning to do so in the next 6 months.

It would also appear that those who have already invested in cloud computing are continuing to invest more than ever, with the average cloud budget up from £1.2 million in 2016 to £1.6 million in 2018.1

Businesses of all sizes are therefore investing significant sums into cloud computing services, and perhaps as a result, are seeing security issues as the biggest challenge in the sector, according to RightScale’s annual State of the Cloud Report2. For many, data is becoming their key asset, if it isn’t already.

Securing data is an investment, not a cost

Companies need to know their investments and assets are protected, and determining which third party to trust is a decision that’s crucial not to get wrong. How can you, as a reseller, ensure you sell the right solution to your customer when the choice in cloud options can seem endless, and near impenetrable for the non-expert?

Veritas have been named by Gartner as the Worldwide Market Share Leader in Backup and Recovery Software for their NetBackup and Backup Exec offerings3. Both solutions provide market-leading data protection which dynamically scales to enterprises of any size, reducing data management complexity, delay, and cost.
