I wanted to let everyone know that two great whitepapers the team has been working on here at Idera Server Backup are now available for to download. Each of these papers gives some unique insight into why you should be backing up all of your servers right now.The first paper addresses the convergence of server backup and compliance. We all hear the names—Sarbanes-Oxley, PCI, HIPAA, HITECH, etc. Depending on what industry you are in, one or more of these rules and regulations may be a significant factor in your decisions regarding IT. The good news is that most of these regulatory compliance initiatives are based on best practices for data security. But what about backup specifically? What do these rules and regulations mandate you do about back up? What and how should you backup? If these are questions you need answers to, read this whitepaper, which includes a matrix pointing to specific sections of the regulations and how you can comply with Idera Server Backup.
The second paper is a look back at some of the biggest data breaches and losses of 2012 and how a better backup solution might have helped mitigate or prevent the losses. The number of data breaches last year was staggering. So much so, I am not sure anyone can really get their head around
the numbers. But when you look at specific examples, like the heart wrenching story of
Wired writer Matt Honan losing his entire digital life, the “ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure” motto really hits home. Have a look at the research and see for yourself why you should be backing up everything right now.
No matter how many blogs, Facebook updates and tweets we have, there is still nothing like a good white paper to dig in on a given subject. The team here at Idera is committed to giving you the information you need to make sensible choices on backup in as many formats as possible. We think you’ll find these white papers quick reading, very informative and most of all, very helpful.
