As IT operations and services continue to accelerate at a rapid rate, so has the increasing number of IT security risks.

This has made data protection—both backup and recovery—more important than ever, and businesses need to ensure that they partner with reliable experts to keep their data safe.

A previous study by Gartner revealed that at least 75% of IT organisations will face one or more ransomware attacks by 2025, sparking an urgent need for solid data protection and backup services.

Plan B New Zealand has a wealth of knowledge on data security and storage and is one of NZ's leading providers of ICT and Business Continuity services.

Recently, the company entered a groundbreaking partnership with VAST Data, a technology company that focuses on data storage, specifically flash memory.

VAST Data's high-capacity, all-flash platform was selected by Plan B New Zealand to ensure its data centres remain operational regardless of a cyber attack, data loss or security and networking issues. This creates a safer data environment for all, with expert advice and services every step of the way.

VAST's all-flash object storage platform also delivers up to 100Gb on the front and back end, enabling Plan B's customers to retrieve archived data in seconds as opposed to days with legacy platforms.

In an exclusive opportunity, VAST will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday 7 December to discuss why flash-based data protection systems are needed to close the gaps in traditional disaster recovery planning.

Attendees will be able to hear first-hand about the incredible Plan B partnership and how it can serve as an example to businesses struggling to maintain secure data and backup.

Diego Nievas, Office of Product and Technology Innovation at Plan B, will speak with George Axberg and Rob Girard from the Data Protection Section at Vast Data. 

With years of experience and insight between them, they will unpack VAST's petabyte-scale all-flash storage and how it is applicable for wide-ranging applications, including backups and restores.

There will be an in-depth discussion on data backup and recovery and how enterprises can use effective storage methods to keep data safe in the long and short term.

If this unique opportunity to hear experts discuss an incredibly vital topic isn't enough, attendees also have the chance to win 1 of 4 $50 Amazon gift cards.
