HOW WILL THE UPDATED CAPABILITIES ADDRESS INDIAN ORGANISATION’S DATA MANAGEMENT NEEDS IN THE CONTEXT OF COMPLIANCE PREPAREDNESS WITH THE INDIA DATA PROTECTION BILL?
With data now trading as a valuable currency and the on-going implementation of data protection regulations in India, the need for data management is gaining momentum. With the amount of data doubling every two years, a lot of data generated is unstructured. To respond to the policy changes, organisations need to be agile and align their data. It is important for business leaders to know their data, and then know how to manage it, so that they are in compliance while recovering or moving their data. In today’s digital landscape, protecting and managing unstructured data is one of the top concerns for CIOs. Veeam’s enhanced NAS backup advancements in v10 save this unstructured data from exposure, helping CIOs align with their policies of meeting their business SLAs. Additionally, with the growing importance of personal data, organisations have a broader societal responsibility to ensure their systems are fully recoverable at all times. Veeam’s v10 offers the capability to delete or forget information, which allows customers to meet compliance requirements with the Personal Data Protection Bill.
