Security

IT Security is a field of computer science concerned with the control of risks related to computer use. The means traditionally taken to realize this objective is to attempt to create a secure computing platform, designed so that agents (users or programs) can only perform actions that have been allowed. This involves specifying and implementing a security policy. The actions in question can be reduced to operations of access, modification and deletion.

With data breaches widespread, no organisation can afford to be complacent, but most data losses are avoidable. Many of the breaches making headline news are caused by the loss or theft of laptops and other portable devices. To protect themselves from financial and reputational damage, encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on such devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by allowing the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.

Data is the backbone of every organization. No matter the business, industry, or size, reliable data access is essential to operations. Should a "worst-case scenario" occur, being prepared with an appropriate disaster recovery strategy is essential. Given the potential high cost associated with data loss, reliable data protection is no longer an option; rather, it is an obligation. This white paper discusses a data protection strategy that takes into consideration the business environment, offering sophisticated features while maintaining simplicity, affordability, and reliability.

More than ever, SMBs need to focus on security as part of their IT infrastructure, building around it rather than considering it as an afterthought. This has become even more critical over the past few years as many businesses have unwittingly lost their customers’ personal data due to security breaches, and as states and countries have responded by enacting laws to force the businesses to implement additional levels of protection.
