Accidents Happen – It’s Time To Take Out an Insurance Policy for Your Data

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Protects Your Ability To Work
You’re in constant communication with your clients, partners, vendors, and employees. You can’t afford email outages, critical system downtime or lost files. You need a business continuity and disaster recovery plan if you want to avoid downtime. A backup isn’t enough. A backup can bring back data, but not your ability to work. In the case of a cyberattack, it might not protect you at all. Today’s cybercriminals target data backups. Cyber criminals want to make you pay. They encrypt your backups first, then notify you that they’ve infected your systems and control your backup.
Secure what’s in your cloud and on-premise servers
With our comprehensive solution, you aren’t dependent on backups to recover after server failure, a data center outage, natural disaster or cyberattack. We take digital images of your systems, so if a worst-case scenario or accident unfolds, you could be operational in a few hours. Without a plan, you could be offline for days, if not longer.
Cloud Solutions Are Not a Business Continuity Plan
Cloud-based solution providers like Microsoft and Google deliver always-on access to applications and information. You likely have access to a backup from the provider, but this is not the same as implementing a disaster recovery plan. Microsoft and Google promise uptime, not data restoration. If files are deleted or stolen, you won’t be able to call a dedicated support team who can access your backup and missing information. Even if you could reach a technician who could help, you don’t know how recent the backup would be. It could have been created last week and lack the critical information about clients and orders you need today.
When you work with us, we back up your cloud data and store it in a secure cloud. Backups occur at a frequency based on your operational requirements. If information is deleted or a computer crashes, we’re only a call away.
How We Design Your Customized Plan
Prolonged downtime is a cost few organizations can survive. No business should close because they did not have a plan in place. That is why we require all our clients to adopt a business continuity and disaster recovery plan. The requirement is uniform, but the solution is designed to fit your operational needs and budget.
Our first step is to assess your environment. Whether you are in the cloud, use on-premise servers or a hybrid approach, we make sure you have a solution to efficiently backup and restore your:
- Files / Documents
- Critical agency data
- Line-of-business applications
- Vital workstations
Once we know what we understand your environment, we work with you to create a plan to bring your systems back online. Unlike other providers, we include vital workstations in your plan. Your employees who use specialized software shouldn’t suffer downtime because their computers or laptops run systems that aren’t widely used throughout your organization.
After you describe your requirements, we design and implement a solution that aligns your budget and needs. We regularly test all points of your solution so that we are confident it will work if we ever need to execute your plan.
Protect What Matters – Your Business
“How long can your systems be down?” It’s insanely difficult for businesses to come up with an answer that is not too costly. Organizations tend to overestimate how long they can be down, resulting in staggering productivity losses. Or they back up too much data, creating a prohibitively expensive solution.
Our clients find the sweet spot. In consultations, we drill into their initial downtime estimates to figure out what would happen if employees couldn’t access the network for a day, or how clients would react if the business was unresponsive for 10 hours. As a result, organizations we work with have a reliable, resilient plan that will restore what they need, when they need it. Our clients do not take on unnecessary risks or costs.
