Kroll Ontrack: data recovery and information security in the cloud

Summary: Most companies don't have either the necessary tools nor the skills to address data loss or information security in cloud computing environments. Kroll Ontrack thinks it has the tools and skills to help.

SHARE:

Messages concerning Amazon's outage continue to come across my desk even though the outage occurred some time ago. Suppliers still see an opportunity to use the incident as a way to get industry attention for their their products or services. These suppliers hope that they can use that event as a backdrop to make their case. This time, the conversation was about data recovery and information security in cloud computing environments. Abhik Mitra, Product Manager, Kroll Ontrack introduced me to the company and what it is doing to help.

During our conversation a number of topics were examined including data loss, data recovery, information security and even data forensics.While much of the conversation had little to do with the Amazon outage, it was clear that knowing about a company that can help find and recover data that is accidentally deleted or find information when a response to an audit or a request for information is received from a court or a regulatory agency.

Most companies don't have either the necessary tools nor the required skills to address those requests. They typically have trouble responding in a timely and effective fashion. If your company falls into that category, it might be worth the trip to Kroll Ontrack's website to learn more about what they're doing. While the connection to Amazon's outage was tenuous at best, I do think that it is wise that organizations think about prevention of data loss. That usually means having a well defined backup and recovery strategy.

    I used another data recovery software for my files in <a href="http://www.bestlaptops.ca">best laptops</a> but I'm open to Kroll Ontrack. I think it is good to know that data accidentally deleted can still be recovered and with added information security. Any kind of Security is important mostly in places like <a href="http://www.yyzairport.net">YYZ airport</a> and <a href="http://www.homeandcondo.ca">Toronto condos</a>.
