Arcserve Unveils New Strategies to Optimize Response to Unplanned Downtime

New report indicates business threats require IT leaders to re-think data availability strategies

MINNEAPOLIS – November 21, 2016Arcserve, LLC, the first provider of simple, unified data protection for cloud, virtual and physical environments, today uncovered new strategies to help organizations prepare for and respond during unplanned downtime. In a new report, Arcserve explores the shifting data protection and availability landscape, and outlines the areas with which organizations need to focus to achieve system resiliency.

Today’s businesses are weathering a “perfect storm” of data protection-related challenges that make it nearly impossible for IT teams to effectively run operations, and place economic decision makers in a bind when allocating and managing resources. These challenges, which include: quantifying the level of risk and loss expectancy, a dramatic rise in ransomware attacks, lack of control over key metrics, and how to leverage the cloud, create an opportunity for organizations to re-assess their ability to cost-effectively respond to unplanned downtime.

“The new challenges hitting IT teams are certainly cause for concern,” said Christophe Bertrand, vice president of Product Marketing for Arcserve. “Organizations that implement strategies around risk mitigation, proactive ransomware response, data availability for system ecospheres, processes simplification, and the role of cloud, will be well positioned to meet any business demand.”

By successfully adopting Arcserve’s data protection strategies, organizations can:

  • Prioritize their most critical areas of weakness and allocate investments accordingly
  • Identify potential gaps in the workflow or value chain of critical business applications, and act accordingly
  • Successfully test plans and guarantee effective execution during an interruption event, ultimately providing more control over RPOs and RTOs
  • Overcome a ransomware event and its widespread damage without paying a ransom
