Whether large or small, every organisation deals with data and securing it within the current remote working scenario is essential. Specially, media companies keep creating large amounts of data usually spread across a wide range of platforms. It needs to be moved at high speed an in a secure manner between different collaborative channels.
Here are 4 initial tips to protect and improve the data collaboration process, both general and aimed to media companies:
- Opt for data encryption options
Encrypting your data is one of the perfect options to ensure the complete safety of your data. It should be noticed that close to 70 per cent of the organisations tend to lose most of their business because of human error and hardware failure.
Our option for this purpose is Storage Made Easy and its solution, the Enterprise File Fabric. The File Fabric provides FIPS compliant encryption and can be configured to encrypt all data for all on-premises or on-cloud data. In addition to that, its Media and Entertainment Version provides a unique file transfer acceleration feature called M-Stream® that allows companies to securely collaborate with large files, wherever they are stored, parallelizing uploads and downloads resulting in a 10x+ speed increase. Users get streamlined access to data with the fewest possible impediments, while at the same time enforcing effective controls to block unauthorized users of sensitive data.
- Use non-proprietary solutions to deal with your data.
The solution we recommend, the File Fabric, does not obfuscate file names and data. Data is managed and secured in-place. Customers are able to read and write files using File Fabric applications and system applications while still access data stores directly.
- Provide employee education
The employees who have adequate knowledge about file and data security are a great asset. Make sure you have provided enough training sessions for your employees to achieve the best possible standards in how to take care of your data. You might even want to explore some additional options that will help in sharing important information with your employees, such as information management for business solutions.
- Clean up your customer data
The customer data you stored on your system can get outdated rather fast. In fact, such outdated data can cause a few serious issues in terms of customer satisfaction. Keep updating and validating vital customer data such as email addresses, phone numbers, and home addresses can come quite handy in this scenario. Removing any of the unwanted data and getting rid of duplicates should be where you would be able to ensure a better deal with your data securely and efficiently.
Data security is one of the most essential elements of any organisation. In addition to making use of the best software and technical tools that are designed for the application, it should also be quite essential to take care of a few other additional aspects to ensure a high degree of performance.
Focussing on building an efficient and robust data management system would help you gain access to a better technique in ensuring an enhanced experience. These initial tips should help you in that direction.
