Read time 1min 50sec

The benefits of having an effective cloud data management strategy are undeniable. It allows organisations to take advantage of private cloud, locally hosted cloud, and public cloud offerings, while ensuring that their data is safe and secure and centrally managed.

Organisations that are taking advantage of the economies of scale that the public cloud represents, without having the right security checks and balances in place and without a proper cloud data management plan, could be putting their business and their customer data at risk.

While all organisations should be cloud-ready, a cloud-first strategy should not mean cloud-always or cloud-only. It’s important to understand the difference, cloud-only is a mandate, while cloud-first is a suggested routine and mindset. Businesses that want to adopt a cloud-first mindset should understand the difference between the two because a cloud-only strategy could prove counter-productive.

Now more than ever, companies need to protect their data and their investment in cloud. Reliable data protection is key to safeguarding business data. However, implementing an effective and robust data management and protection strategy can prove challenging.

The objective of the Cloud Data Security survey being conducted by ITWeb in partnership with Veeam is to find out how likely organisations are to invest in Cloud Data Management solutions. The survey also investigates how quickly organisations managed to adapt to a secure work from home environment, as well as their biggest concerns around providing offsite business continuity.

We hope you’ll be able set aside a few minutes of your time to participate in the survey, and stand a chance to win a set of Sony wireless Bluetooth headphones valued at R6 000. The detailed results of the survey, and the prize winner, will be published on ITWeb.
