Majority of Organizations uncertain if they can recover from a Ransomware Attack: Dell Technologies Report
The Dell Technologies 2021 Global Data Protection Index (GDPI) findings reveal organizations are facing several data protection challenges driven by the constant threat of ransomware and the consumption of emerging technologies such as cloud-native applications, Kubernetes containers, and artificial intelligence.
Ripu Bajwa, Director & General Manager, Data Protection Solutions, Dell Technologies India, says, “As we move further in the data era, the amount of data being generated will continue to increase due to various factors such as continuation of remote working culture, higher adoption of emerging technologies etc. The Dell Technologies 2021 Global Data Protection Index corroborates this, and highlights how organizations globally are managing more than 10 times the amount of data, as compared to five years ago. We understand these challenging times and the hurdles businesses are experiencing in securing data. Hence, to address the evolving IT and security demands of our customers, we are offering industry’s most comprehensive solutions for cyber resiliency, at the edge, the core and the cloud environments. We are constantly working with our customers to understand their security challenges, and are offering them the required data security solutions to reduce business risk and ensure flawless business continuity.”
Lucas Salter, General Manager, Data Protection Solutions, Dell Technologies, Asia Pacific & Japan, comments, “Our newly launched Dell Technologies 2021 GDPI findings indicate that over two-thirds of the respondents from Asia Pacific and Japan are concerned that their organizations’ existing data protection measures may not be sufficient to cope with malware and ransomware threats. In this age of increasing cyber threats, we understand that the stakes have never been higher and protecting data has never been more complex. We have been working with our customers across the region to address this growing challenge by adopting a holistic cybersecurity and data protection strategy to reduce risk and ensure resilience in the event of a ransomware or other cyberattack.”
New GDPI findings reveal increased state of complexity around data protection
The 2021 Dell Technologies GDPI survey of 1,000 global IT decision makers of which 250 are from APJ (Australia, India, Japan, Singapore, and South Korea) shows organizations are combating continued data growth and increased data protection complexities. The study found that globally organizations are managing more than 10 times the amount of data than they did five years ago – from 1.45 petabytes in 2016 to 14.6 petabytes in 2021. Additionally, 68% of respondents in India (Global: 82%, APJ: 82%) are concerned their organization’s existing data protection solutions won’t be able to meet all future business challenges. These concerns are well-founded, with 26% (Global: 33%, APJ: 38%) reporting data loss in the last year and 34% (Global: 45 %, APJ: 42%), experiencing unplanned system downtime.
