Backup alone is not enough anymore. Businesses today must put a range of recoverability options in place. That’s why it is encouraging to see Carbonite, a data protection company with cloud and hybrid offerings, making fresh moves to help organizations evolve beyond legacy backup. Years ago, Carbonite pioneered cloud backup for endpoint devices. Then it expanded, buying EVault in 2015 and DoubleTake in 2017. Just as Carbonite has long been at the forefront of offering what people need from cloud-based data backup, it now appears to be just as intent on providing what IT organizations need—hybrid data protection media and mechanisms.

Many IT Managers will be familiar with the ‘disk or die’ ultimatums that a disgruntled system can issue. If the system demands feeding and threatens to shut down if it doesn’t get more disk to chew, it’s time to address the issue of disk once and for all. The expense of using disk to accommodate problems in the hope of buying extra investigation time is a quick fix that few organizations can sustain.

Most organizations have invested, and continue to invest, in people, processes, technology, and policies to meet customer privacy requirements and avoid significant fines and other penalties. In addition, data breaches continue to expose the personal information of millions of people, and organizations are concerned about the products they buy, services they use, people they employ, and with whom they partner and do business with generally. As a result, customers are asking more questions during the buying cycle about how their data is captured, used, transferred, shared, stored, and destroyed. In last year’s study (Cisco 2018 Privacy Maturity Benchmark Study), Cisco introduced data and insights regarding how these privacy concerns were negatively impacting the buying cycle and timelines. This year’s research updates those findings and explores the benefits associated with privacy investment.
Cisco’s Data Privacy Benchmark Study utilizes data from Cisco’s Annual Cybersecurity Benchma

Words like “integrated” and “centralized” have been used to describe application software solutions for some years now, often because of marketing messaging that implies more interoperability than the given technology can actually provide to the business customer. The terms are broad enough to be almost meaningless in some instances. In the field of IT security, the sheer range of tools and techniques in the hacker or virus writer’s armory that one must guard against has driven up the number of solutions required to prevent attacks.

People control their own consumer journeys. Consumers expect a borderless world in which they roam freely between a brand’s social media channels, email campaigns, blogs and e-commerce site, effortlessly buying things that catch their eye. It’s led to a sporadic, personalized shopping journey that frequently begins on digital touchpoints that weren’t built for commerce.
That’s made it increasingly complex for brands hoping to meet customers’ needs and measure the results of their marketing strategies.
At the center of this new customer-driven revolution is visual content. Images and videos play starring roles in the decisionmaking process, and provide consumers with a whole new level of inspiration and knowledge. Every picture and video clip is now the entrance to a digital storefront, meaning brands can use them to drive not only engagement but revenue.
