Trustwave DbProtect Recognized for Its Intelligent Database Security When the World Needs It Most

According to IDC, in 2020, 64.2 zettabytes (ZB) of data was created or copied due to the increase in rich data exchanges and remote working during the COVID-19 pandemic. IDC also predicts that the amount of data created over the next five years will be greater than twice the amount of data created since the advent of digital storage.

What’s more, data record compromise is on the rise – with the volume of records that were compromised by data breaches jumping 141% from 2019 to 2020. A staggering 37 billion records were compromised last year alone.

It’s clear that with this drastic increase in data production and data record compromise, database security deserves to be prioritized now more than ever. Organizations that operate in highly regulated industries, have complex on-premises and hybrid cloud architectures, and hold hacker-desired personally identifiable information (PII), need database protections that they can trust to defend them in this new environment.
