Don’t Let Data Loss Destroy Your Business

The average modern-day business is extremely dependent on their information technology infrastructure, and when their information technology isn’t available for one reason or another, they stand to lose in a major way – from incoming revenue to potential and current customers to the public’s trust – there’s simply too much at stake. In fact, studies show businesses lose between $926 and $17,244 for every minute they’re down.

How is that possible? How can downtime possibly cost so much? First and foremost, you must consider all of the recovery expenses, equipment replacement and/or troubleshooting, and of course, the lost productivity and reputational damage that results from downtime. It all adds up quickly. Every day, businesses like yours face the aftermath of downtime as a result of:

  • Fire
  • Flood
  • Power outages
  • Server failure
  • Cyber-attacks
  • Human errors
  • Storms
  • And much more

Think about global ransomware attacks for a moment. WannaCry, for example, affected over 150 countries – leaving hundreds of thousands of systems infected around the world. We know cybercrime evolves at a rapid rate, so we’re sure to see a lot more global ransomware attacks hitting businesses left and right as time goes on.

When it comes to disaster recovery, we know one of the biggest issues is cybercrime, and more specifically, ransomware. Every business, at some point or another, will experience an attack. That’s inevitable in today’s increasingly unsafe cyberspace. Even further, every business has experienced a natural disaster or human error.

You can’t completely avoid the incidents leading up to downtime. That’s why it’s so important to plan ahead with business continuity planning. Our team of technology experts will help you prepare for the worst-case scenario with business continuity planning wherein we:

  • Backup your data onsite and offsite in the cloud so you can rest assured knowing you have copies of everything – recoverable in a moment’s notice as needed.
  • Create a disaster recovery procedure plan because backups are just one component, we’ll write a detailed plan that outlines the proper protocol for any disaster, including who does what and who to contact.
  • Monitor and test the backups on a regular basis to ensure they’re recoverable when you need them most. If one fails, we’ll address the issue and make sure it doesn’t happen again.
  • Run periodic “fire-drills” wherein we’ll help you practice the plan, so you can feel confident knowing you and your staff know what to do in the event of any type of downtime.
  • Plan for Internet and/or power failure to make sure you have redundancy with systems in place to keep you fully operational in the event of an Internet and/or power outage.

Your entire network will be backed up multiple times per day, which means your files, applications, programs, operating systems, settings, and more will always be available and ready to restore. In the event of a server failure, we’ll be able to get you back up and running on our backup appliance while we fix the server.

If you experience an outage that makes your infrastructure completely unavailable, we’re here to help! We’ll rebuild your network on a secure cloud server. This means you can keep accessing absolutely everything you would normally have access to – without worry!

Now let’s say a fire happens at the office rendering your building inoperable, our backups will let you bring your operations back online at any location where Wi-Fi is available. How does that sound for complete and total protection against downtime of any sort?

Lastly, because human error is responsible for 48% of outages, we’ll work with your team to ensure they’re aware of how to use your hardware and software, as well as what type of issues we should be contacted about immediately, in order to reduce the likelihood of employee-caused downtime.
