Cyber resilience requires the proactive prevention of attacks and protective mitigation of any threats that have impacted a company's system.
But a cyber resilient business knows there is no way to prevent 100 percent of threats to their systems and data. Data loss, system outages, and downtime can all occur despite your best efforts at prevention. That's why companies must be ready to respond quickly and minimize downtime.
Unfortunately, disaster recovery (DR) has become increasingly difficult as organizations' data sets grow and their storage environments become more complex with the simultaneous use of data centers, edge locations, and public or private clouds.
Disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) helps companies fulfill the third crucial piece of cyber resilience even as DR becomes more complicated.
Let's look at the elements of cyber resilience a little more closely.
Prevention and protection solution work together to stop threats before they reach your network and to neutralize the threat or minimize the damage of an attack should a bad actor slip through the first gates.Tools like DNS protection, email threat protection as well as regular security awareness training, can stop threats before they reach your network whilst tools like email encryption, email continuity, and endpoint protection can protect your system from malware, keep your confidential data safe and ensure business continuity.
Prevention and protection often get the most focus, but a comprehensive approach to cyber resiliency must include a business continuity and disaster recovery (DR) layer too. System outages can occur from cyber attacks, but also natural disasters, fire, or even human error. The faster you can recover your data and applications, the more resilient your business. DRaaS typically provides faster recovery points and times than other modes of backup and recovery while reducing costs and simplifying the process.
The truth is, that even the most stringent prevention measures aren't enough. Attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and complex, and that first line of defense may not catch them all.
Outages from cyber attacks and other disasters are common. Seventy-six percent of respondents to Gartner's IT Disaster Recovery Trends and Benchmarks survey reported an incident during the past two years that required DR. More than 50% reported at least two incidents.
DRaaS provides critical protection for businesses when prevention fails and the worst happens. It ensures businesses can quickly restore data and resume business operations within minutes.
Building a cyber resilient strategy that incorporates all elements of a successful security posture is the key to securing your data, your bottom line, and your reputation. It can also require managing several applications and contracts.
Juggling multiple vendors, products, and services can be time consuming and costly. With consolidation, you can use all the features and functionalities within a solution to cover all three layers. Should a problem arise, dealing with fewer vendors can save you time.

84% of businesses use cloud backup and the number goes up to 93% for small and mid-sized businesses.(1) No surprise given the reliability, affordability and accessibility of the cloud. Backing up your data to a cloud-based server is a more secure, reliable, and cost-effective way to protect data than traditional backup methods. However, to ensure that your cloud backup strategy provides the best possible protection, you need to follow certain best practices. In this blog post, we will discuss the 5 best practices that an organization should follow to optimize their cloud data backup protection.
Backup and recovery
With the rapid pace of innovation today, it's common for data to be sprawled across a range of physical, virtual and cloud platforms, and even across wide geographic distances. Data management is a balancing act between the need to protect data and the need to easily access data. The trick lies with deploying the right protection across the different systems, for diverse types of data and for various environments.
Enterprise cloud backup solutions add the cloud's inherent scalability, accessibility, and reliability to backup, making it apt for enterprises with distributed workforces. As an IT administrator, security team member, or Chief Security Officer, you know that protecting your data is essential to your business.
