These example organisations had cyber security tools deployed but were still critically damaged.
Why spend budgets on Cyber Resilience?
If the continual efforts of cyber security vendors stopped cyberattacks and resisted all attempts to breach your defences, why are you continually confronted with successful attacks?
Backup recovery is still built for dinosaurs and not our digital landscape
This video will take you through the challenges that organizations have today when securing their active data. It is essential organizations can recover time-sensitive data during a ransomware attack faster, helping to reduce the incident lifecycle of 326 days.*
We challenge myths that traditional backup & recovery solutions enable effective recovery from cyber incidents.

Digital businesses will always be at the mercy of the latest cyber vectors. An enhanced defense means adopting stronger cyber resilience. Cyber resilience can deliver real-time data visibility, risk and active data protection on a wider scale. When required, you should have the capability to immediately recover data and devices [without constraints] significantly faster (in hours, rather than days) to protect commercial operations and reputations.
The element of surprise “mystify, mislead, and surprise¹” by cyber criminals means that combinations of the most advanced cyber security tools will always be reactive. This exposes organizations to the continual risk of a breach.
Being more resilient to criminal intent is the next progressive step for successful cyber protection.
¹― Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Cyber resilience is vital for business continuity. It provides benefits beyond increasing an enterprise's cyber security posture and reduces the risk of exposure to its critical infrastructure.
Cyber resilience, when implemented effectively minimizes operational impact, helping to reduce financial loss and reputational damage. Cyber resilience increases a company’s competitive advantage through effective, efficient and rapidly responsive operations.
If cyber security tools on their own could stop all hacker end-game breaches and ransom threats from happening, there would never be a successful attack.
A number of unintentional [internal] actions can cause a computer or application to stop working. It could be as simple as a bad Microsoft patch, a system setting change or even a newly installed application.
Many rollback technologies used to return to the last 'good known state' rely heavily on the various types of backups of data. Cyber resilience should address many of the operational constraints inherent in this process (backup location, network access, storage architectures, etc.), presenting you with the difficulty to recover all your data, compromising your recovery time objective and capability to be fully operational.
