The Progression of Backup and Storage Over Time

The history of cybersecurity dates back to the 1900s with the invention of computer punch cards – which could store just 80 bits of data. Today, the average cell phone can hold the data of at least 400 million of those cards. As data and backup storage continues to advance, integrate security will become even more crucial. Here’s a closer look at the history and future of backup storage across the ages.

IBM played a huge role in the progression of data technology, having invented the first hard drive, floppy disk, and data backup solutions – in that order. However, the tech giant didn’t raise the data economy alone. 

Below lies a timeline outlining the major technological developments that have brought us to the point in cybersecurity we’re in today. By 2025, 175 zettabytes of data will be stored worldwide – mostly through cloud-based data centers. However, new technology will continue to bring new risks. What else will the future of data protection hold?
