Join Over the past few months, nearly every organization has undergone a rapid transformation to take care of employees, customers, and day-to-day business operations.

 

We’ve seen that you need the flexibility to support employees as they move from offices to their homes and back. You need to keep your data available and secure without sacrificing application performance. And you have to understand how to mitigate risk in advance and establish processes that enable you to act quickly when the unexpected happens.

Navigate disruption with resilience and efficiency

Disruption is unavoidable; how well you handle it is what matters. To handle disruption, it helps to have remote visibility to assess your environment, optimize your applications, and keep data safe. Many monitoring tools give you visibility into one aspect of your infrastructure. NetApp® Cloud Insights helps you see your entire infrastructure — across your data center and public cloud providers — so you can make adjustments to maintain reliability and manage costs.

Create remote workforce flexibility

You now need the flexibility to move workers home and back quickly and cost effectively. For most organizations, this flexibility can mean a mix of cloud and on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). NetApp supports thousands of customers on both and helps bridge the gap between them. The new NetApp Virtual Desktop Service helps you deploy and manage virtual desktops in the public cloud in just a few hours so you can scale up and down quickly. And NetApp HCI lets you run virtual desktops and other user applications side by side on the same system, giving you flexibility in the data center.

Reduce the risk of cybercrime

The massive increase of home-based students and workers has been marked by an exponential increase in cybercrime. NetApp delivers proven end-to-end data security (we’re the #1 provider of data storage and management to the U.S. federal government). The innovative NetApp FPolicy Zero Trust engine is built into our data management software and uses behavioral analytics to identify and stop malicious activity. And our NetApp Solution for Ransomware helps you detect ransomware across public cloud platforms and on-premises environments, prevent it from spreading, and recover quickly after an attack.
