A Data Revolution
Today data is everywhere. Especially in India, the digitalization journey Indian citizens are going through is immense. Government initiatives like digital India, smart cities have further added to proliferation of data. New age technologies such as 5G will also lead to further explosion of data as it will break down many barriers and let customers work much closer with businesses, opening up multiple ways to perform tasks.
In this new India, Commvault can help prospective customers manage the growing data, find the right place to protect it based on the type of data that exists inside of their company. It has given its existing customers the ability to truly access the information whether it’s through a store or an archive, solve their critical pain points, take care of them and finally win their trust. Apart from this, over the past few years Commvault has helped them secure that in a way that is compliant with regulations like the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Customers today are much more aware about cyber-attacks. However they still lack understanding of tools to be used to secure their data. The only key to solving this problem is digital literacy. Awareness about the risks of cyber-attacks aren’t enough; consumers need to be informed about general data protection tools such as - having an end to end data protection solution, using strong firewalls and anti-virus systems.
Commvault feels that the media, government and technology companies have an integral role to play. Media needs to report more about how consumers can keep their data safe and why they need to take cyber-attacks more seriously. Government needs to adopt a stronger policy on unlawful monetization of user data and companies can conduct awareness camps around the same. Unfortunately few companies realize the importance of their data only once they have lost it. Therefore a proactive Data Protection approach, rather than a reactive approach is always recommended.
