The safety of data comprises of various platforms to make sure that the information remains protected currently and in the future. It involves processes and tools, which guarantee database safety. Notably, data security remains largely a policy issue whether the information is print or internet based (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
The users and owners of the data have to be sure that the information is not vulnerable to hacking. This case study presents a discussion of the data security company based in Australia, the Replica.
After long research on threats on data security, the company became determined to provide reliable solution to this developing technological problem. The company worked closely with SQL server databases and others to provide data security to computer and other system’s users (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
During the study, the company discovered that Caché had high-performance as it required, thus became the foundation for developing the data security software (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). The aim was to save most businesses from collapse due to loss of crucial data in this digital era.
This made the company to innovate Replica Data Securities from Caché since it served as the basic and real-time high-speed for doing data analysis (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). At the same time, Caché demonstrated high-performance regarding transaction processing.
The rationale for settling on Caché was its ability to move twofold large data (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). For instance, it is efficient, fast and can still move perfectly with terabytes of data. Apparently, this is a great performance that could execute the desired function with ease.
Basing the security issues entirely on sustaining the network other than the data, which is transmitted through the system, might not solve the problem of data loss (Mathis & Jackson, 2011). It would enhance the system’s performance with limited concentration on the data, which pass through the system, regarding the loss and leakage.
This is risky for most businesses, which handle bulky and sensitive data. Indeed, any loss or leakage of such data could adversely affect their operations (Mathis & Jackson, 2011). This necessitated the development of data security software that is capable of limiting the total loss and/or destruction of the information.
The company made tremendous efforts in developing a unique approach of making the information stored safely (Mathis & Jackson, 2011). In this approach, the company developed high-performance software for recovering the data in case of urgent loss (Mathis & Jackson, 2011).
Besides, the software could store information as long as the user needs it, thereby keeping the data safe for future use. Indeed, the security measure or device helps many corporate users to avail the data needed (Mathis & Jackson, 2011).
The software is installed as a background application on PCs, workstations and laptops so that as the person uses either of the systems, the information is stored automatically (Mathis & Jackson, 2011). In addition, the data are safe and protected from unintentional loss that could result from electricity or system’s failure (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
In case of such eventuality, the software gives virtually continuous and absolutely automated data back-up. This occurs on the local database prior to using the data, which at the moment is in a technologically encrypted replication (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). In the encrypted form, the data are transferred to a safe offsite server.
Notably, the server should be able to run database that supports Intersystem Caché to retrieve the information lost (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). The innovative storage and encryption technology that the company developed could combine effectively with other world-class security Cachés (Mathis & Jackson, 2011).
Apparently, the Common Criteria Certification of the software evidences its ability to combine with other securities (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). This increases the users’ confidence that the data they were using remain safe even if the applicable network experiences inevitable compromises. This characteristic makes the software reliable among its users.
As an extremely scalable database that is capable of keeping all the data previously used, Replica stores information originating from the system used, whether from laptop, servers and workstations (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). Basically, the information streams into the respiratory, where it piles up safely.
Therefore, the data could be retrieved at any time it is required even if the parent system does not support (Mathis & Jackson, 2011).
In Replica software, the clients’ interface supports the interaction with the technology, thus able to restore the information that is specified (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). Here, only important files, which the user could retrieve easily are restored so that getting the data does not post a serious challenge to him/her.
Notably, the involvement of an IT expert in restoring the data could complicate the matter; the software makes work easy because its interface is undeniably friendly (Mathis & Jackson, 2011).
Due to the high performance of the software, it is able to process the incoming information with enhanced speed, enabling the users to have whatever they had longed to get (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). In this regard, using the software, the users are able to store the data at their disposal, and manage it from a central location (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
Therefore, it solves the persistent and unprecedented loss of data because the non-users are unable to notice the information, a situation that enhances its security (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
In cases when the workstation crushes abruptly, the user has confidence that his/her data is safe and retrieves the items (Mathis & Jackson, 2011). The person simply installs replica in a different machine and log in to it. He/she either continues working on the data or retrieves it if the work had completed.
Truly, this makes the data safe from unauthorized used and interference, a sense of security of the information (InterSystems Corporation, 2012). Frequently, the users lose data as a result of unprecedented system’s breakdown.
Therefore, the company has solved this through the innovation that has reduced fear among the users of PCs and other systems (InterSystems Corporation, 2012).
In summary, data security is an essential innovation that helps businesses in storing and protecting the information from untimely loss or destruction. As a policy concern, data security for the information, whether it is print or internet based is significant in guaranteeing the corporation that it would not be lost in times of emergency.
The use of Caché was arrived at since the research proved that it served as the most effective and real-time high-speed for doing data analysis. This characteristic enables the Caché to transmit large data safely because the software is to guarantee the security.
Finally, the software is able to restore the entire information that is specified, making all the important files, which the user could retrieve easily to be available.
