Unfortunately, when it comes to cybersecurity, a lot of businesses still don’t fully comprehend the risks they face. Perhaps they believe they are too small to make an attractive target for cybercriminals, or perhaps they think their end users would be vigilant enough to recognize and avoid viruses and phishing attacks. The truth is: any business could be a cybercrime target, no matter its size.

While some attacks do target large corporations, most still do not discriminate based on the size of organization. Hackers just want to compromise the network and its devices to steal any and all data they can sell or use for their own ends. And once they’ve hacked a network server, they can use it to launch attacks on others.

Cyber threats are attacking users from multiple angles—or "vectors". And what’s worse, their attacks can hit in multiple stages. As an MSP, you must leverage solutions that keep users and devices infection free, across all endpoints. Unfortunately, two-thirds of MSPs are short on qualified IT professionals who can help them ramp up their security offerings. Thankfully, multivector protection can help.

Scaling storage sounds simple: Just add more disk drives! But there’s a lot more to it than that, and the enterprise storage industry is running into a wall with conventional approaches. That’s why next-generation datacenter and cloud storage systems adopt a different approach from the scale-up storage systems of the past.

Ransomware groups are getting sneakier. In order to avoid detection and boost probability of infection, ransomware techniques are increasingly becoming more sophisticated and may lay dormant for days (or weeks) on end. Newer versions of the malware try to infect network shares in addition to local directattached hard drives.

Legacy storage systems have issues when it comes to scaling. Integrated RAID disk configurations do notl end themselves to expansion, and conventional file systems aren’t much better. But the issue of scaling has been solved in cloud storage systems by the use of object stores. These store data as an object in a distributed database, eliminating scalability and management issues.
