Final Words

Security of data, together with compliance, becomes more and more important. Only a couple of years ago IT admins were more occupied to get better performance of their IT infrastructure and the security slipped somehow at the second place. Things are changing quickly with high performant servers, hosts with latest NVMe devices and in-memory data caching optimizations in today’s landscape. As ransomware threats evolve, staying compliant with security standards is not just a regulatory requirement but a critical component of an organization’s cyber defense strategy.
