The global average total cost of a data breach is $4.2 million, while the average number of days it takes to identify and contain a breach is 287 days.
No business wants to deal with an outage of production systems such as SAP, and certainly not for more than three-quarters of a year. Consequently, businesses require greater integrity, availability, and fast recoverability of enterprise systems. It is more crucial than ever for them to cultivate a strong level of protection to maintain business continuity. However, you may be asking: “Why aren’t backup and disaster recovery solutions enough to protect your enterprise?”
Among the reasons are the increased attack surface caused by digital transformation and cloud adoption, as well as corruption propagation in disaster recovery and backup copies that affects recoverability. Highly manual response and recovery plans are also creating issues, while a rapidly evolving and increasingly complex regulatory environment is challenging.
