Why is protecting email data a priority for a manufacturing company
Manage classified data: With rapid digitization of the manufacturing industries, a huge amount of transactional data is being generated in the digital format. Manufacturing companies leverage intellectual property to design and produce their products and processes, which give them their edge in the market.
"60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster" - Boston Computing.
60% business-critical information is in emails: Most manufacturing companies rely on email to carry out transactions and as the primary method of communication and document transport to and from regulatory authorities, customers, suppliers, and other partners. Data carried in email includes notifications, contacts, agreements, contract negotiations, commitments, issues, invoices, reports, and more.Reduce penalties and risks: Protecting their critical data, complying with industry regulations such as GDPR, and reducing penalties and litigation risks associated with contract enforcement is a top priority for manufacturing organisations.
Challenges with protecting sensitive email data
Cyber-attacks: The sensitive nature of this data makes them vulnerable to data theft, cyber-attacks and security violations from within the organisation and from outside.
Using traditional methods: Storing these emails on-premise, on backup tapes and devices can lead to loss of critical information and an inability to retrieve these quickly on demand.Data fragmentation: Critical conversations regarding warranty terms, sales transactions, approvals, notifications, contacts, agreements, contract negotiations, commitments, issues, invoices, reports, etc are carried over email. Mailboxes bloat rapidly, forcing the users to backup email locally and delete email from their mailboxes. This fragmentation of information makes it challenging to detect and locate data leakage sources.
Automatic cloud email archiving and advanced ediscovery can protect critical data and provide visibility on data leakages. A hierarchical storage architecture, possible with a cloud archival, can help contain mailbox bloat automatically.Security at multiple layers help thwart ongoing cyber-attacks and protect valuable intellectual property and critical data in the vaults.
