Today, modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as cloud solutions. There is more critical data to back up than ever before, as well as new privacy and security compliances. Enterprises are reexamining on-premises data protection, which has not kept pace with this new reality.

Consider that 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data protection inefficiency within the previous year. Meanwhile, nearly half of organizations said they still rely on tape as their primary form of direct backup. Additionally, only 70 percent of on-premises data protection backup jobs are completed on time.

A growing number of businesses are thinking about moving data protection to the cloud, which is cost-effective, easier to manage, flexible, and more reliable. Just a couple of years ago, the public cloud was considered too dangerous and unreliable for storing sensitive company data. Today, it is seen as a critical aspect of data protection.
