Strengthen Your Data Security with HPE GreenLake for Data Protection

  David Fafel     Oct 10, 2023

HPE GreenLake for Data Protection offers a consolidated approach to data security with a focus on integration, quick recovery, scalability, and cost-efficiency.Your household provides comfort and peace of mind because everything you need is in one place. To safeguard assets and sense of well-being, some of us may have installed a security system – whether it be locked gates, cameras, or smart locks. However, you noticed there's been a rise in break-ins and burglaries in your neighborhood. Unfortunately, criminals are growing bolder and more skilled, which means bolstering your own security and safety measures.

Now think of data as the valuable possessions inside your home, and the security system as data protection measures. In a similar way that home burglaries are getting more frequent, there has been a surge in data-related disruptions and threats in recent years. Like burglars, cybercriminals have evolved sophisticated techniques, such as ransomware and malware, which pose a significant risk to your data security.

The Challenge With Data Security

These days, data is spread across various platforms in the digital environment, ranging from edge to cloud. This dispersion poses a challenge comparable to safeguarding valuables hidden in different rooms or spots within your home.

Businesses encounter this challenge with cybersecurity: how to secure data across diverse environments and ensure seamless integration. IT and security teams must adapt to new threats and safeguard data wherever it resides. Often, a CISO is overseeing an environment comprised of legacy security technology that operates independently from other elements within the environment’s surface area, leading to major inefficiencies and increased blind spots, especially with cloud adoption as popular as it is. 

Meet Your Ideal Data Security Solution

Just like apps that consolidate home security monitoring, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) GreenLake for Data Protection plays that same role for businesses. Providing a comprehensive data protection solution from edge to cloud, this solution ensures the following:
