Unlimited cloud storage plans are becoming extinct- How can Synology Drive help enterprises in cost control and data ownership?
Cloud storage has become the go-to choice for businesses, with over 60% of enterprise files now residing in the cloud, and a staggering 94% of businesses worldwide embracing cloud storage solutions (GoodFirms, 2023). However, with nearly half of cloud-stored data classified as sensitive information, including employee and customer data, financial records, and intellectual property, it is projected that cloud storage spending will increase by 13% to reach $135.1 billion by 2026 (IDC, 2023). This rapid growth of data presents two significant challenges for enterprises: rising storage costs and data privacy concerns. Public Cloud Challenges Rising costs for businesses
What is backup and disaster recovery? Why is it important?
Data backup ensures you have a copy of your important data in case of unforeseen incidents. Consider the following eye-opening statistics: downtime can cost enterprises typically $5,600 per minute, according to Gartner, and shockingly, the Cybercrime Magazine reports that approximately 60% of small businesses had to shut down within six months after being hacked. These numbers clearly highlight the significance of having a robust data backup strategy as part of a comprehensive disaster recovery plan. By being prepared and implementing a reliable data backup plan, you can reduce the risks associated with data loss and ensure the continuity of your
What is a file server and why is it important?
A file server is a computer that stores files and documents for all computers connected on the same network. It acts as a central storage hub that allows users to access and share files without having to manually transfer them. They typically have large storage capacity and are equipped with many features to ensure data stays safe and available. File servers make storing, securing and sharing files in an organization simpler. However, they are a common target for hackers and ransomware, so particular attention must be given to secure them against attacks. How do file servers work? Here are some

Rolling out the welcome mat for white-hat hackers to enhance product security with Synology’s Bug Bounty Program
More and more enterprises are employing bug bounty programs to make their products and services more secure and reliable. The concept of this program is to crowdsource information security from researchers who report security vulnerabilities that may incur irretrievable damage and are previously unknown to potentially affected companies. Those who submit vulnerability reports which are later validated by security analysts can receive monetary rewards. This concept starts to gain ground, and the world’s tech giants, such as Microsoft, Google, and Facebook launched similar programs aimed at enlisting the help of researchers across the globe in finding out potential security flaws that
