Backup and Disaster Recovery

Here is an important question to ask about backup and disaster recovery, and you have a lot riding on the answer….

If your computer network and the data it holds got erased or destroyed because of ransomware, a virus, hard drive crash, natural disaster, fire or some other random, unforeseen disaster, how confident are you RIGHT NOW that your business could be back up and running again FAST?

If your answer to that is, “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure,” you are taking a HUGE risk with your company’s most important asset – the data on your network. Disasters come in all shapes and sizes and aren’t always covered by insurance. The most common reasons for data loss are connected to our everyday lives. Someone accidentally deletes a file, you get ransomware, a power failure or a hard drive crashes. On the surface these disasters won’t cause a business to close it’s doors immediately, but it can have serious, long term consequences. If you don’t have a complete backup and disaster recovery plan in place, it’s time to make a change to save your business.

We will test individual files and whole file directories to give you peace of mind that your backups are not only successfully completed but usable.
  • Secure Offsite Storage: We utilize multiple secure data centers across the country to back up your data offsite.
  • Disaster Recovery Planning: What happens if a disaster occurs in your business? How will your staff react? Will they know what to do, where to go and how to continue to serve your customers?

The ability to continue to generate revenue during a disaster is what will keep you from being one of the 70% of small businesses close their business due to a data related disaster.

Can you even put a price tag on backup and disaster recovery for your business? Probably not – yet so many business owners grossly underestimate the ability to have their business up and running after a disaster and are purely hoping that their current backup system is working. Hope is NOT a good strategy when it comes to your company’s data!

Get your backup and disaster recovery plan solidified NOW before it’s too late.
