“As cyber threats continue to raise concerns across virtually all industries, particularly healthcare and financial, it is important that organizations remain compliant and find solutions that implement the latest encrypted technology to protect their data and the data of their customers.

To support business continuity, as well as ensure data protection and security, IT professionals should look for policy-based solutions with the ability to fingerprint and encrypt data to fortify businesses against viruses, ransomware, and other bad actors. Solutions that are able to restore from virtual shortcuts can decrease the amount of time spent retrieving data and help users bring their businesses back up quickly. Implementing self-healing technology can help the system to automatically ensure it is in order and ensure your last line of defense is continuously updated and ready to go. This is an immutable copy that can’t be altered and itis replicated to a remote location using an encrypted transfer. While you can’t eliminate cybercrime, you can take steps to help organizations be prepared to evade and/or recover from it.”
