In the era of the digital economy, data serves as the core asset of all enterprises and plays an increasingly important role in business optimization and decision-making. This requires us to pay more attention to data protection.

Xiang Song, Chief Technology Officer, CITIC Technology Development Company

It was essential that our enterprise cloud strategy included plans for protecting, securing and managing cloud data as well as our on-premises datasets as they are moved, managed and used for business gain.
