Data resilience solutions suites (DRSSes) can provide a holistic structure for a business’s data resilience and backup strategy. A DRSS can address some persistent threats such as cybersecurity attacks, which can increase the complexity of a company’s data protection efforts. It can also provide security around data in case of deletion or disaster recovery.
Forrester’s recently published report, Now Tech: Data Resilience Solutions Suites, Q2 2022, provides an overview of 20 DRSS providers. IT, technology, risk, and data security professionals should use this report to understand the value they can expect from a DRSS provider and to select one based on size and functionality.
Forrester defines data resilience solutions suites as:
Solutions that provide a flexible core to an enterprise data protection and archival program. They protect a business’s data, monitor and report on enterprise data resilience, and provide automation and orchestration functionality for establishing flexible backup schedules as well as restoring data to the right place accurately and quickly in the face of crisis.
A few key takeaways from the report:
- Data storage is evolving, and your data resilience strategy should, too. Data resilience solutions must adapt to support new workflows — consider solutions that do so.
- Backups are key to business continuity. A DRSS solution should be able to restore data and restart operations quickly if a disaster strikes.
- A DRSS should show how resilient your data is and show you where any gaps are.
