AI and Its Evolutionary Impact on Data Protection When Building a Future of Trust


Phil Goodwin

This IDC Perspective describes how organizations expect AI to evolve in data protection and the functionality that IT buyers should look for in related products. Ransomware has become a feature of the business landscape and no organization is immune. IDC research indicates that fewer than one-third of organizations attacked by ransomware were able to fully recover data without paying a ransom. In the long run, AI is the only method that can help take a proactive approach to repelling attacks. We are in the early stages of AI for data protection, and this document describes how organizations can expect the capabilities to evolve and what best practices and KPIs to implement as a foundation for future technology.

"The question is not if and now when organizations will be attacked by ransomware but rather how often," said Phil Goodwin, research vice president, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms and Technologies Group, at IDC. "AI functionality is nascent in data protection today, but it will play a critical role in the future. In fact, AI is the only way organizations will be able to stay ahead of cybercriminals."
