Your database is your company’s lifeblood. It contains your customer information, malady your blog posts, pills even your sales information. You need to be sure it remains intact and safe, healing but with the news lately that giants like Target, WordPress, and Amazon are not secure from hacks, what can you do? You need database security services.
Data storage, particularly cloud storage, is a major business, and part of a huge growth market. It is expected to increase from $1 billion this year to $14 billion by 2019 – a massive increase. Cloud storage is appealing because it saves companies the problem of finding room in the basement and room in the budget for the server, and the upkeep and management of said server can be difficult. It makes a lot of business sense to move your database to the cloud.
But the cloud carries its own risks. Hacking is up 47% in just the first quarter of 2014 over the same time last year, and each hack is about double in length what it was last year, lasting 35 hours now. Database security is even more important than ever before.
Database security means not just providing protection for the databases themselves, but also the servers and the network. Even if a hacker doesn’t steal any information, just the delay of accessing information can cost businesses millions of dollars. It also needs to protect against malware being installed on the network that can mine data or interfere with business operations by causing system overloads or delays in processing.
It used to be much easier to take care of your information – just set up a firewall, have a good internet security software program, and you were done. Those days are sadly gone.
