Mihir Shah, CEO, StorCentric 

“IT professionals can sometimes be overlooked, despite just how vital their presence is. This may be due to the fact that the only encounter most people have with them is when IT has gone wrong. What most people forget is that these IT professionals are the backbone of virtually every successful organization and work tirelessly to ensure infrastructure is protected, services are kept running, and their end users are provided with efficient ways to work. 

In today’s pandemic era, remote work has become the norm. With this, IT professionals have had to become extra vigilant as ransomware has also spread viciously. Unfortunately, backups have become the latest malware target, as evolving and more sophisticated ransomware attacks now not only seek to attack onsite production data, but every possible copy, wherever the copies reside. Ransomware continues to be the biggest threat facing organizations today. IT departments must incorporate a secure solution into their existing infrastructure such as Unbreakable Backup, which protects backups in the event of a ransomware attack and mitigates data loss and downtime. For this reason, and countless others, we at StorCentric wish to honor and celebrate hard working IT professionals, not only this IT Pro Day, but everyday.”
