“Just like an insurance policy, your backup and disaster recovery solution is the one thing you want to work perfectly when you need it, but hope you never do.”
Backup & Disaster Recovery
Security problems pose the biggest risk to uptime, productivity, and regulatory compliance. At the very best, a malware infection is a mild nuisance and causes minor performance problems. At its worst, however, and what we have seen more and more of lately, is that it can bring your business to an immediate and complete halt.
The advent of ransomware is truly scary. A simple executable one of your users unknowingly downloads from a usually trusted site that’s become compromised will silently crawl your network, encrypting every single file it finds, leaving behind only instructions on how much and where to send money to get the key you’ll need to decrypt all your data. All this is not to mention the seemingly incessant stream of hacked networks or possibility of a disgruntled employee causing significant harm to your data on their way out the door.
Whether it’s acts of nature, malicious behavior, or faulty lines of code, there will always be things that can destroy the data and applications you use to run your business. Statistics show that your business’s chances of surviving a catastrophic loss of data are virtually zero. Just like an insurance policy, your backup and disaster recovery solution is the one thing you want to work perfectly when you need it, but hope you never do. But therein also lies the first misconception – backup and disaster recovery are two very different things, each with its own requirements.
Backups are helpful when a user accidentally deletes or overwrites a file. Our backups have multiple layers – one allowing the user themselves to restore a file if they want to, and the other we manage for our customers. We can restore pretty much anything from any day in the last week, any week in the last five weeks, and any month since the first backup was taken. All of this backup data is encrypted with 256 bit industry standard, HIPAA compliant encryption, and is monitored constantly and tested regularly.
Our Disaster Recovery solution is not only backing up all of your regular office files, but also the applications, databases and even operating system. That entire image is then replicating offsite where the entire thing can be virtualized and booted up remotely to get you back up and running in the event of a catastrophe. This of course requires planning and procedures for you and your employees to follow if the circumstance were to arise as well, but with a solid disaster recovery plan in place there’s no reason your business will become a statistic.
