Future-proof your critical long-term information.
Secure immediate access to long-term digital information has become fundamental to business success. Vital for decision making, driving innovation and meeting privacy, regulatory and legal requirements.
A challenge across every industry
Every organization, across every sector has critical digital information it needs (or wants) to keep for 10 years or longer, often for decades or even permanently — from core business information to assets for industry specific regulation.
Ensuring accessibility and authenticity of this information over successive technology cycles and custodians requires a different approach to traditional backup, archiving, storage and content management.
“There is a significant amount of digital information that should be preserved for the longer term with retention times greater than 10 years. Government documents are one example, but companies also have information that needs to be preserved in order to ensure records will be readable and usable when required. Manufacturing, infrastructure, pharmaceutical companies and financial services organizations all have data that falls into this category.”
