ESG analyst viewpoint

ESG analyst viewpoint

Concerns about ransomware have grown massively. According to ESG research, 82% of organisations are more concerned about ransomware today than they were two years ago, and conversations about ransomware have been escalated to the executive level in 67% of these organisations. This is where tape technology can shine. Tape provides a scalable yet cost-effective answer to fending off attackers and significantly increasing the odds of recovery, even from frequent attacks. Thirty-five percent of organisations surveyed by ESG have deployed isolated recovery solutions and related storage. Tape allows air-gapping capabilities, and that’s likely why 61% of organisations leveraging isolated protection storage technologies are keeping production data on tape as a part of these solutions or will likely do so.
