Companies spend countless amounts of money and time to develop enterprise content management (ECM) systems to increase productivity and make themselves more efficient, but not enough focus on the risks from information loss according to an ECM security company president.
Wayne Crandall, president of CYA Technologies, says companies focus on the minimal amount of data loss that can occur to their ECM systems but ignore the larger problems like user errors and viruses that cause about 80 percent of all data loss.
While he recommends companies use traditional backup and recovery solutions to prevent large-scale loss, he says they should also consider CDP, replication and mirroring, and granular recovery solutions.
"To secure the ROI companies have come to expect using ECM systems, it’s necessary to deploy a comprehensive ECM backup and recovery strategy that takes into account partial information loss in addition to full system failures and disasters," said Crandall.
A survey earlier this month from Rohati systems found that 71 percent of companies were not taking the proper steps to minimize the risks of losing ECM data.
