One of the reasons for the ever-increasing complexity in IT is the variety of data an organization has to deal with every day.
In a recent survey by CIO Insight, 84% of the participants said having multiple platforms for different data types is a major contributor to IT complexity.
General privacy rules like the GDPR and industry-specific regulations like HIPAA, SOX, PCI, FERPA and FINRA necessitate the management of the lifecycle of the client data – to ensure that the data is governed and secured in accordance with the compliance requirements.
Many organizations struggle to keep a grip on unstructured data, especially that containing personal information such as addresses, card numbers and more, due to the data’s changing nature. Identifying security risks associated with such data is a time-consuming and complicated process if the data is stored on various siloed systems. Hence, a unified view of the data with full visibility of all endpoints where data enters, exits and exists across the entire IT landscape is required.
Unified Platform for Asset Management, Compliance, Backup and Security
Cybersecurity, asset management, backup and compliance are all interconnected. Cybersecurity threats can unknowingly expose an organization’s intellectual property to a malicious attack as well as place customer, partner, and employee privacy data at risk, resulting in non-compliance.
One cannot provide comprehensive security and compliance without comprehensive asset management. This interconnection and inter-dependability gives rise to the need of a unified solution.
Shops often use and try to integrate tools for different processes. However, for most organizations the integration of tools is a challenge. In the CIO Insight survey, 77% of respondents have challenges integrating systems from multiple vendors.
Compliance and IT Systems Management
Having a unified solution helps eliminate redundant and repeated data by providing transparency across the entire IT environment. This helps in simplifying compliance of the various regulations with the use of the same asset library as of IT systems management.
A few other ways a unified solution benefits:
- Monitoring and reporting of all the endpoints are enhanced with the unified view.
- Protecting every endpoint from hacks and malware becomes easier with the centralized control.
- Controlled costs and increased efficiency with unified coverage of all assets.
VSA by Kaseya consolidates management into a single solution that eliminates the complexity and inefficiency of managing and using multiple disparate systems for IT tasks placed. The result is increased efficiency, reduced IT costs, reduced risk, and better compliance across all endpoints.
