For this leading IT Consulting & System Integration company, data is their most critical asset. Over time, however, a multi-cloud data & application sprawl meant their applications and data were spread across multiple hyperscalers, and the client was struggling to maintain a uniform data backup and resiliency framework that could span across multiple cloud platforms.
Their CISO was also concerned about organization’s exposure to ransomware, and how it would impact their business. Despite having measures in place for disaster recovery and security to protect against the customary threat landscape, he believed that they were underserved when it came to protection against ransomware.
NTT worked with the client to implement a multi-cloud, single-window backup and resiliency solution that that would also mitigate their exposure to ransomware via a consumption-based data resiliency platform, ensuring business resiliency in the event of a ransomware attack.
Ensuring a uniform data resiliency framework across a multicloud environment, while also ensuring data protection against ransomware attacks.
With more data being produced now than ever before, the client was struggling to effectively manage backup across their multicloud environment. With no visibility or control over protected data, confidence in the existing backup infrastructure and tools was low, as IT teams were unable to correlate data that was being stored on multiple cloud platforms.
Also, despite a fairly wide landscape of disparate protection tools, the client was unable to accurately identify coverage gaps in their threat mitigation capabilities. They were, however, able to clearly see deficiencies in their abilities to ensure data resiliency and business continuity in the event of a ransomware attack.
Delivering resiliency and security across a hybrid multicloud environment.
With the new backup & resiliency solution, NTT has helped the client achieve a uniform, resilient backup policy across a complex hybrid multicloud environment – something that was lacking prior to NTT’s solution.
The NTT solution provides unmatched scalability and flexibility to meet their growing data backup and archival needs, allowing them to optimize utilization without any extra administrative overhead. With complete visibility and governance over their backup and retrieval process, they’re now confident in the SLA that they provide to the business.
The CIO and CISO are both now more confident that business critical data is resilient and they have a greater control against growing ransomware threats. Even in the face of unknown threats they can respond
