If there's anything that defines the current state of the enterprise, it's the rapidly increasing volume of data that companies are dealing with. Each month, more and more data is being loaded onto company storage solutions and networks. Responsibility falls to you and your team to the company's data is properly safeguarded. A study commissioned by Evault and conducted by research firm Vanson Bourne makes it clear just how important data storage has become in the corporate world. Vanson Bourne interviewed 250 IT decision makers in the financial service and retail industries across the two regions of the UK (North West and South East England, including London), Paris Ile de France and three regions of the United States (Northeast, Texas, and California). The survey was conducted in November and December 2011. In fact, the information contained in the study might shock you, as you realize that millions of dollars each year are lost due to faulty data storage. What's worse, more companies than you might expect are suffering from it.
