As the world accelerates to an era of digital economies, it has become paramount to ensure maximum availability and protection of its critical data in the event of unexpected disruption and heightened security risk.
Brian Chan, Information Technology director at Jebsen Group, says trust and relationships are important in business. Jebsen’s data protection strategy aims to instil confidence with its clients and business partners.
“We can’t prevent all cyberattacks, but early detection is key. Our cybersecurity strategy is to identify, contain and restore. To restore and retain a complete and updated copy of our data, we need to ensure that our backups are successful every single day,” said Chan.
Jebsen Group, a 125-year conglomerate with a focused on marketing, investment, and distribution organization, has selected Veeam Availability Suite and Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 to protect and restore critical data and services in the event of a disruption.
Jebsen is also enhancing its data security posture by creating immutable backups that protect against prominent cybersecurity threats like ransomware.
Jebsen has a centralized data protection strategy and standardized backup platform across all six business lines, elevating its ability to recover from security threats.
Per the company, Jebsen has achieved 50% faster data backups while saving cost and time for IT and business users, and full critical data recovery can now be restored within four hours versus 24 hours under the previous system.
Backups are now successfully completed every hour while failures are also minimized, allowing the business to operate with peace of mind. This immediately addressed the concerns from a past cyber-attack threat which the company was able to mitigate but it then realized better data protection and restore capabilities were needed to ensure optimal business continuity.
Since 2020, Jebsen has invested in a new application architecture to embrace the emerging digital economy and drive towards a data-driven organization with seamless integration with business partners. This shift makes the flow of data a critical foundation of its business and its partners, which Veeam has addressed with new levels of protection to improve overall business resilience.
