Historically, backup and recovery has been a job relegated to a junior person on the team. It’s the kind of grungy work that all companies know they should do, but no one wants to own it. As such, many companies have a poor backup and recovery posture and aren’t even sure they can recover from a disaster. Additionally, in recent years, homegrown backup systems have been the target of more and more ransomware and cyber attacks.
Attackers target the backups, either deleting them completely and then attacking other parts of the system or steal the backups, break the encryption, and now have access to tons of company data.

He joins the show to discuss backup and recovery missteps, best practices, and how Druva, the SaaS-based backup and recovery platform helps businesses offload backup responsibility.
