Modernise data protection

Combat converging forces

As rapid data growth meets burgeoning security risks and compliance regulations, a regulatory storm is beginning to brew. Organisations are quickly losing grasp on their data at a time when the consequences of mismanagement are higher than ever before. Without a clear understanding of 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 organisations to conquer the storm, reduce risk and optimise storage.

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

GDPR risk mitigation & compliance

Turn on the light. Gain clarity.

More than half the data in an organisation is dark. Lack of clarity over what data is stored and where exposes organisations to operational and compliance risk.

Finding the truth in information enables organisations to address compliance and operational risk head on. Veritas Risk Mitigation and Compliance Services can help shed light on your data, illuminate the path to compliance and keep your organisation running smoothly.

Risk mitigation & compliance

Is it possible to build a solid yet agile resiliency foundation?

Organisations thirst for an objective view of their business resiliency; the risk of downtime can be substantial and may also have serious compliance implications.

Discover a resiliency point of view that assesses the current state and builds a solid and agile approach to help achieve the desired state for your IT environment.

Resiliency Readiness Assessment Workshop

Validate Then Act

It's simple: IT is the backbone of any organisation. If IT goes down, the business can be critically wounded. The ability to map application dependency down to infrastructure is fundamental to measuring IT resiliency. And because IT environments are so complex and ingrained in multiple business processes, the routine approach to resiliency may not be enough.

The Resiliency Readiness Assessment Workshop from Veritas Advisory Services is a balanced approach to substantiating your organisation’s current IT service resiliency. That validation can propel you in two directions: either confirm 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
