Data Security the Focus of 2015

Over the past year, data security was the top priority for organizations and IT departments everywhere – and for good reason. Hackers, data breaches and cyber threats dominated the headlines in 2014 and companies scrambled to keep up. Not even government secrets were entirely safe – state-based hacks were exposed and the U.S. government made strides to stem the influx of internationally-funded cyber attacks.

However, the coming year could be more promising. Organizations have a renewed resolve to tackle cyber threats and maintain data loss prevention.

Companies rely on backup tapes to preserve data
One technique that has gained traction is the use of backup tapes and an accompanying tape tracking platform to ensure every piece of information has an adequate insurance policy. According to Kroll On Track, data security, encryption and erasure topped the list of important trends in the data recovery industry.

With the growing threat of cyber theft, the number of companies that required a system to guarantee data continuity within their organization doubled from 2013 to 2014. In 2015, that number will likely continue to expand. When it comes to data tracking and security, the best offense is a good defense. The best platforms prevent data from ever coming under duress in the first place.

A secure tape management system
Organizations searching for a robust backup tape management system with foolproof security, B&L Associates offers Vertices and VaultLedger. The programs combine excellent tape tracking, strict adherence to data compliancy and powerful security platforms. The security system ensure that only those qualified will have access to data, any high or unusual usage rate is reported, and purge and data recovery capabilities reduce the chances of incidental losses.
