As rapid data growth meets burgeoning security risks and compliance regulations, a regulatory storm is beginning to brew. Organizations are quickly losing grasp on their data at a time when the consequences for mismanagement are higher than ever before. Without a clear understanding on what data you have or where it is stored, it’s next to impossible for you to manage these converging forces and to take action that enhances data performance and creates cost savings. Veritas Modernize Data Protection Advisory Services help empower organizations to conquer the storm, reduce risk and optimize storage.

Make sense of data growth and management with Modernize Data Protection.

Resiliency Readiness Assessment Workshop

Validate Then Act.

It’s simple: IT is the backbone of any organization. If IT goes down, the business can be critically wounded.

The Resiliency Readiness Assessment Workshop from Veritas Advisory Services is a balanced approach to substantiating your organization’s current IT-service resiliency. That validation can propel you in two directions: confirmation that your IT-resiliency plans are appropriate or reveal the need to explore strategies to address the potentially acute level of risk.

Outputs of the Resiliency Readiness Assessment Workshop include:

  • Diagnostic Framework - Assess complexity, quality, importance, and criticality
  • Grid Analysis - Rank strengths, deficiencies, obstacles, and roadblocks
  • Recommendations - Evaluation of current and desired states, low hanging fruit and high-level improvement opportunities, next steps roadmap
