Ransomware attacks cost businesses an average of $5.54 million per breach and are fast becoming the number one cause of disaster recovery events.

It’s easy to think it won’t happen to you…but in the past two years, a staggering 76% of businesses reported incidents needing to execute a disaster recovery.

Watch this short video to learn how VMware Cloud Disaster Recovery through Insight can help.

As digital transformation accelerates for organisations, digital assets and data are central to business success.

Agility, resilience and availability enable business continuity and drive a superior experience for your customers. Safeguarding your customer information and operations necessitate an innovative and on-demand disaster recovery strategy that protects against cyberattacks and minimises downtime.
