Round Table:
Redefining Data Protection for the Hybrid Cloud Era

Today’s data landscape is a hybrid, multi-cloud world, and it’s everything, everywhere, all at once, making data protection across it all a significant challenge.
Historically, organization had one way to manage that - with more. More tools, each covering a part of what you need. They require more integrations, more to learn, more work, more complexity and the costs of it. And more tools create more gaps for more vulnerabilities, which could drive up prices even more.
The challenge for IT and security leaders is unenviable – protect all data no matter where it resides, prepare for ransomware and other cyber threats, and do all of this at ever shrinking budgets and skill shortages. Join this invite only exclusive Round Table to meet with other industry peers and data protection experts to discuss challenges, deliberate strategies and identify best practices to deal with this challenge.

Key discussion points:
  • Understanding the complexities of data protection in a hybrid / multi-cloud environment
  • Modern Data protection strategies to elevate cyber resiliency and counter ransomware and cyber threats.
  • Strategies for effective Cloud and SaaS data protection
  • Data governance and compliance to manage sensitive data and ensuring data privacy.
  • Managing data and solution sprawl with simplified data protection
