From our experience, when meeting new clients, most companies unwittingly keep a backup that is vastly inadequate for their needs. Furthermore, they fail to sufficiently test their backup. So, should they need to rely on it, it may be unusable.
A catastrophic loss of data, with no backup to fall back on, has and does destroy small to medium businesses. Your data is crucial to the wellbeing of your company and that is why protecting it with the appropriate programs and services is not an inconvenient expense, it’s a vital one.
Our business continuity experts will help you create a Disaster Recovery and IT Business Continuity Plan that understands the key elements of your business which are fundamental to your operation.
We can help you get started with this right away and put together a comprehensive plan for your entire company, considering key components crucial to your recovery and establish a formal process to be followed to restore your business continuity and IT systems when a disaster occurs.
Your Disaster Recovery Plan will be a comprehensive, step-by-step process for you and your staff to follow
It will cover such items as regular testing and validation of your IT backup system, sourcing equipment, restoring data, and all the essentials needed to restore your business’s operational capability.
With our managed backup service, we’ll maintain a local onsite backup and a cloud backup. With the correct provider selected, a cloud backup of your data is the safest possible method of storage. Your data will be held in ultra-secure UK-based data centres that conform to the highest security standards – a building that provides a bank-like, physical security that far surpasses what can be achieved on your own premises.
The most common use of data backup is not for a catastrophic loss – it’s for retrieving files lost in the day-to-day, due to human error or virus attack
Files being deleted in error or mis-saved in the wrong format is a daily occurrence for most offices. Some of these mistakes are more damaging than others, and the ability to bring back a file’s previous iteration can result in saving you hours of work – and the difference between achieving or missing a deadline.
Downtime is something all companies wish to avoid – understanding the impact of your system going down, for any length of time, on your operations is fundamental in identifying the appropriate backup and disaster recovery solution for your business, and what fail-safes may be necessary.
