SlideShare: Are You Treating Unstructured Data as a Second Class Citizen?

Unstructured data is the fastest-growing segment of data within most enterprises today. This data set contains the creative output of the organization’s employees as well as unique data captured by sensors and machines. Unstructured data is large in terms of capacity and number of files. It is also the prime target of ransomware. Organizations are paying hefty ransoms to regain access to their data.

Protecting unstructured data is challenging. Most organizations can’t protect it frequently enough, and are unable to restore the data quickly enough. The problem is most data protection solutions are protecting unstructured data incorrectly. Data protection vendors count on image-based backups to bypass issues associated with high file counts. Image-based backups, however, sacrifice the granularity required to meet regulations like GDPR and detect ransomware. Being able to see inside all those files being saved, in order to either make intelligent decisions about the data or to put it to use in another way, is a critical new requirement for organizations.
