Today, data volumes are growing exponentially and organizations of every size are struggling to manage what has become a very expensive and complex problem. It causes real issues such as:
• Overprovisioning their backup infrastructure to anticipate rapid future growth.
• Legacy systems can’t cope and backups take too long or are incomplete.
• Companies miss recovery point objectives and recovery time targets.
• Backups overload infrastructure and network bandwidth.
• Not embracing new technologies, such as cloud backup, because there is too much data to transfer over wide area networks.
This ESG paper describes how through consistent individual product innovation and integration EMC backup and recovery solutions tackle the issues that prevent customers from transforming data protection.

The importance of healthcare providers to assure their patients the utmost security, confidentiality and integrity of their sensitive information cannot be understated. This means being HIPAA compliant within every aspect of their practice, with a particular emphasis on the components of their healthcare IT infrastructure
