5 Problems with Data Protection Point Solutions

Published on

If you are like many organizations, as your business needs changed, you have deployed a variety of data protection solutions over the years.

You have protected your most critical data sources with one or more solutions specific to those data sources – sometimes referred to generically as ‘point solutions’.

After a period of time, you are left with a complicated mix of data protection solutions and no easy way to confirm if all of your critical data is adequately protected from data loss or breach.

5 Problems with Data Protection Point Solutions

  1. 1. 5 Problems with Data Protection Point Solutions
  2. 2. The Problem With Point Solutions If you are like many organizations, as your business needs changed, you have deployed a variety of data protection solutions over the years. You have protected your most critical data sources with one or more solutions specific to those data sources – sometimes referred to generically as ‘point solutions’. After a period of time, you are left with a complicated mix of data protection solutions and no easy way to confirm if all of your critical data is adequately protected from data loss or breach.

  4. 4. Designed for Specific use Cases Point data protection solutions work very well for a small handful of specific use cases of which they were designed, but are generally useless for any other scenarios. Flickr: abdullah.khan2012
  5. 5. Rarely Unified Even if point data protection solutions come from the same vendor, there’s no guarantee they can be integrated or unified. Therefore, IT admins will need to learn how to use different tools, becoming less productive as a result. Flickr: emily blincoe
  6. 6. No Transparency or Control Point solutions provide neither an organization-wide view nor control of your data protection. If you are unable to see a complete and coherent picture of all your organization’s data sources and their protection status in real time, you can’t tell if all those data sources are being adequately protected.

  7. 7. Inconsistent Protection Levels Different technologies provided by different vendors will almost always offer different levels of protection. Even with guaranteed recovery of lost data, the recovery times will likely differ. This is a problem if you have two data sources that are equally important to your organization being protected differently which you would then need to assess if the different treatment is acceptable.

  8. 8. Too Expensive Data protection point solutions often come with a lot of hidden direct costs which can come in the form of paying extra for add- on and complementary tools and features such as virtual machine replication, mobile device management, and billing modules. Moreover, different point solutions will have their own license models which may require you to buy more capacity than you need resulting in unnecessary expenses. Flickr: auntneecey
