Bocada Study: Automation and Cybersecurity Integration Coming to Backup Operation

Finds growing need to juggle historical backup challenges of environment heterogeneity and data volume growth with newly emerging cybersecurity, automation, and cloud transformation initiatives.

Bocada LLC, a backup monitoring and reporting automation company, released findings from the company’s study, Backup Monitoring Trends Report: Key Factors Influencing Data Protection Evolutions.

Backup Challenges - Managing Data Growth, backup operational challenges


The report uncovers the issues impacting backup protection today, and the key issues driving future resource planning. Featuring commissioned survey findings from over 260 global IT professionals responsible for managing and/or influencing backup operations within their organizations, the study asked respondents about current challenges, issues they anticipate impacting their category, and how broader automation, cloud, and cybersecurity trends are influencing their future planning.

Backup Challenges - Managing Data Growth, backup operational challenges


Key Survey Insights Include:

  • Backup environment heterogeneity and data volume growth will continue driving backup monitoring difficulties. Securing data across backup applications is the most-cited backup management challenge, followed by protecting growing data volume.
  • Cloud-Backup Oversight. This dynamic is likely leading to backup professionals citing cloud backup oversight as a top backup management concern.
  • Automation is lagging in the backup management category … but on the horizon. Nearly two-thirds of backup professionals report zero automation applied to recurring backup management activities. But nearly 50% anticipate at least some automation implementation over the next 2 years.
  • Backup operations will become more closely tied to cybersecurity. 47% of backup professionals expect greater incorporation of backup monitoring within cybersecurity programs. This makes it the number one trend they anticipate impacting their category in the next 3-5 years.

Backup Challenges - Managing Data Growth, backup operational challenges


What’s remarkable about these findings is that they show increasing complexity entering the backup management space,” said Matt Hall, CEO. “Age-old backup monitoring challenges like environment complexity and data volume growth will continue to plague data protection professionals, all while they are expected to manage cloud transformations, cybersecurity, and automation initiatives. Unless they find solutions to centrally manage these moving pieces, critical data will be at risk.”
