Data Protection

Citrus Consulting provides expert cloud data protection services for businesses of all sizes.

There are several reasons for spending money, time, and effort on data protection. The primary reasons are:

  • minimising financial loss
  • compliance with regulatory requirements
  • maintaining high levels of productivity
  • meeting customer expectations.

However, one of the greatest challenges facing enterprises is the rate of growth of the data and the requirement to keep more for longer. There is also a clear expectation that essential data be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Not only must it be available, but it must also have integrity; otherwise, it is worthless. Without a working data protection strategy, that is not possible.

The growth of this data, particularly in environments where there are many image files becomes very expensive and very time-consuming when having to back these up to tape media. The tape media can also be a challenge as these need to be moved off-site and recalled if needed. That creates time lags in recovering data, and if the tape is damaged or lost, it is impossible to recover.

The demands of a 21st-century business are such that customers expect the business to always operate. In an increasingly global economy, downtime cannot be tolerated by customers, who can readily take their business elsewhere. The inability of a business to operate because of a data loss, even a temporary one, is driving many businesses to deploy extensive data protection schemes. Data protection strategies need to consider these 24/7 expectations.

The Citrus Data Protection Services are aimed at improving our customers’ data protection capabilities. Citrus will provide a storage repository to which customers can replicate their applications and data, with the ability to stand up individual environments for testing purposes.

Just like your business, you should never leave your data unsecured and vulnerable. Therefore, it is so important for your business to have a strong and well-rounded data security strategy to control, monitor, and secure your data at all times and in all places, especially in this new post-pandemic environment.

In the modern age of data storage and management there are a great many threats to data integrity; from the typical threats such as invasion of privileged data, eavesdropping or spying on your networks, DDoS (direct denial of service) attacks and phishing scams, to the newer yet equally dangerous threats such as attacks on Cloud services, side channel invasions, and abusing the vulnerabilities of virtualization.

Citrus Consulting can provide companies with a reliable and secure disaster recovery environment. It is well known that a DR site that is not tested regularly has no value, which is why Citrus assists clients with DR documentation and annual failover testing.
