It’s no secret that cybersecurity attacks can be devastating to both data centers and the businesses they support. The very idea of a breach is enough to make security analysts break out in a cold sweat, and with good reason. Indeed, data breaches in the United States increased by 40% last year, highlighting that this epidemic is as widespread as it is serious.
Equally troubling, however, is that over two-thirds of businesses are notified of these attacks by a third-party. This means businesses are not discovering data center breaches on their own, and instead must rely on others to tell them they have been compromised.
