Editors at Solutions Review LOVE tech companies with personality. We love it even more when their products live up to their marketing, by delivering “Tuned-in”, relevant, quality enterprise technology solutions. Today’s security landscape is like the wild west; you’ve got information being taken for ransom, internal sabotage (25 percent of respondents from a survey conduced by Forrester reported that a breach occurred because of a malicious insider.) and straight up break-ins, because hackers will be hackers!
It takes a particularly progressive organization to provide exactly what enterprises require in a next-gen backup and disaster recovery solution. One that fights back like the wild west with data encryption, off-site warehousing, and on-call advocacy when times get tough. These backup and disaster recovery solutions providers make protecting big data look like Clint Eastwood.
