Data Protection and Security: An Opportunity to Progress Business Objectives with Confidence
Cyber security has become a topic of severe concern to executives and boards in recent years. Part of this is driven by the numerous high-profile cyber incidents that have struck Australia and around the world.
The underlying reason for this is clear. Data might be the “new oil,” but as its value to the organisation has grown, so too has the risk attached to it, and the CEO and the board that they report to needs to be risk adverse.
This creates headaches for the technology leaders in the organisation. The opportunity for using the data is huge, but too often they feel like they need to “work around” the data protection concerns of the executives, and their inclination to try to lock technology environment down to “secure” it.
Of course, robust security is non-optional. But it also can’t obstruct and disrupt the productivity of the enterprise. IT solutions need to adopt a best-of-breed approach to IT, data protection and security. When there is confidence in the resilience of the IT environment, it then becomes possible to better leverage data and align the IT with the broader business objectives.
Delivering this is where HPE, Intel® and Metropolitan Computers & Supplies come in.
What Confidence in IT Looks Like
HPE’s answer to the data protection and security challenge is HPE GreenLake powered by Intel®, and with decades of experience in building enterprise technology, this solution cuts to the core of what modern security should look like. HPE GreenLake combines a best practices approach to data protection by combining advanced backup, ransomware protection, and disaster recovery together.
HPE GreenLake is also supported by leading technologies, including powerful Intel® processors that drive enterprise-grade machine learning and AI capabilities.

All of this is further supported by HPE’s broader range of enterprise security and data protection services, allowing organisations to embrace the opportunity of hybrid work and remote services.
Finally, in addition to offering peace of mind that data is being handled appropriately and securely, HPE GreenLake also provides enterprises with financial clarity with a flexible, pay-per-use model.
