The fatal mistake that could compromise your data [SLIDESHARE]

When virtualization technology first became accessible, affordable and commonplace, it changed the game for IT teams. Virtualized environments are cost-effective; they help improve overall system performance and they’re ideal for consolidating workloads across servers. They’re also fast, and they scale quickly, making them a perfect fit for growing organizations and midsized businesses.

However, you can’t let the benefits made possible by virtualized servers instill a false sense of trust or confidence among your team. It’s a mistake made all too frequently in the industry – if an IT team isn’t prepared to properly secure virtualized data, the threats introduced to these environments can be fatal for the business. And if a security attack targeted at virtualized data stores hits your company, this issue can quickly overshadow the value of your virtualized environment.

Our latest SlideShare, “How to protect virtualized data from theft,” shares vital tips for securing your virtualized environments and building a data security plan that addresses every aspect of your infrastructure. By educating your team about the risks your company faces, protecting your data at its core and planning ahead to avoid the secondary costs of data theft, you can quickly identify threats and protect your company from the inside out.

Kaspersky Lab reports that security attacks on virtualized infrastructure can cost twice as much as attacks focused only on physical servers. When you consider the current estimated cost of a breach on virtualized data – nearly $1 million – you recognize why gaining visibility into your virtualized storage and becoming data-aware throughout your system should be one of the top priorities on your IT to-do list.
