Understanding DPaaS: The Future of Data Protection in the Cloud Era

Understanding DPaaS: The Future of Data Protection in the Cloud Era

Data protection as a service (DPaaS) helps organisations better protect their cloud-based data without the infrastructure overhead. Whether you need reliable disaster recovery, backup, archiving or restoration services, Secure Agility’s DPaaS provides peace of mind for Australian organisations looking to secure their data and grow with confidence.

Data Protection for Modern, Digital-Focused Business

With so much business activity relying on digital infrastructure and applications, avoiding downtime and costly data loss is essential. DPaaS helps organisations protect and restore data in the event of an incident. Backups are automated according to your schedule to take the stress out of disaster recovery. This ensures your data is always available for restoration to a point before it gets deleted, corrupted or encrypted in a cyber attack.

Enhance Security for Remote Workers

With more workers taking devices home and accessing your organisation’s cloud-based infrastructure off premises, it’s crucial to have the right cyber security measures in place. DPaaS solutions ensure files and applications are protected and backed up regularly no matter where they are accessed. This process is simplified by incorporating DPaaS as part of your wider managed ICT services, particularly with an SD-WAN deployment.

Backup as a Service (BaaS)

Reduce the risk and impact of ransomware attacks with Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS), which is provided as part of your DPaaS solution. With centrally-hosted and managed protection for your cloud infrastructure, you can restore data to any recent state with point-in-time recovery and incremental-forever backups. 

BaaS keeps your data encrypted in transit or at rest and is governed by granular permissions. Protect your Remote Data Centre and Remote Branch Office (ROBO) with both primary storage and command and control style backups. This can be deployed as a device or service as well as through a virtualised edition on customer infrastructure.

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Disaster recovery as-a-Service (DRaaS) provides reliable protection for your organisation if a large-scale failure or significant problem occurs. By replicating your data and application to another data centre, DPaaS solutions speed up data recovery. Processes needed to deploy the recovery workflow are completely automated according to how critical dependencies are defined. This sets the order and timing of recovery to  restore the right backups.

Reduce the cost of maintaining and supporting disaster recovery and data protection in-house by paying for only the storage space you need. DPaaS is customised to your unique business availability requirements.

Archival as a Service

Another aspect of DPaaS solutions includes Archival-as-a-Service. This enables longer term encrypted data protection in a cloud repository. Like DRaaS), Archive-as-a-Service is provided on a consumption basis, meaning upfront costs remain low and only increase when more resources get consumed over , extended periods.
