Key Takeaways

⇨ Among 53% of companies who experienced a data breach related to third parties, 45% of them were cloud-based.

⇨ While AI and automation can be asset tools in mitigating security breach crises, deploying technologies like data vault can offer an additional security layer which would protect sensitive data from theft and allow a smooth recovery process.

⇨ Adopting multiple security layers is especially important for those SAP users who are going through their digital transformation journey due to vulnerabilities of a newly integrated system.

In the world of expanding data and drive towards digitalization of businesses’ systems and operations, it is as important as ever to ensure that cyber protection schemes are in place. According to the Ponemon Institute research, 53 percent of companies have experienced a data breach related to third parties in the past year, among them 45 percent were cloud-based. Many organizations are now deploying AI and automation which are statistically better at detecting breaches to help protect vulnerable information.

However, while AI and automation can help bring the overall data breach lifecycle much shorter compared to those companies who have not deployed these technologies, many may feel that they would like to find a solution away from their personal cloud to ensure that there is an extra layer of protection and possibility for recovery. For that, SAP users may want to consider opting for data vault in their cyber security policy.

A data privacy vault is a technology that isolates, secures, and tightly controls access to manage, monitor, and use sensitive data. One of the leading suppliers of this tool is Markgraf Consulting. Markgraf offers DarkThreat Data Vault which is deployed through specific steps: first, the company’s sensitive data is securely transferred onto a portable storage system which is then transported to DarkThreat’s ingestion point.

The data is stored in a long-term archive for offline and “air-gapped” data storage for the ultimate tier of data protection. The data tapes are then transported to their cold storage location. In the event of a cyberattack, DarkThreat can restore the data locally and either ship or courier it to the business’s location or upload it to a cloud recovery environment.

By opting for a security option of data vault, many companies can equip themselves with a contingent plan that would not be reachable by attackers in the case of a data breach. That extra layer of security is something that is going to help SAP users stay out of the percentage of those companies whose clouds experience data breaches. This is especially important for those currently experiencing the digital transformation and migration to the cloud. Considering how much sensitive data cloud can carry, being cautious and deploying multiple security layers is crucial for any company’s success.
