Quest for Resilience Turns Up Ransomware Backup Strategy
March 14, 2018
When Hubert Barkley, vice president of information and technology at Waste Industries, bought copy data management software Actifio, he didn’t know he was also buying a ransomware backup strategy.
The Raleigh, N.C., waste and recycling collection company is digitizing fast, installing sensors on its fleet of trucks to supply information on the vehicles’ maintenance and help drivers find the best routes for pickup. With all that information generated by the trucks passing through the company’s blend of data center and cloud architecture, Barkley needed to make sure it was always available and accessible in case of a disruption. The vogue term today, instead of disaster recovery is resilience, as SearchCIO’s sister site SearchSecurity points out.
