Backup and Disaster Recovery

Protect your business data, systems and employees by ensuring you have the right Backup and Disaster Recovery solutions in place, should you experience a malicious attack or a man made disaster.

Your IT disaster recovery plan

Even the most advanced and robust businesses cannot prepare fully for the unexpected. From technical glitches and human error to cyber security breaches and natural disasters, certain events are simply unforeseeable and out of your control. 

They may not happen often; but when they do, you need to be prepared otherwise, you could end up losing valuable information – and destabilising or jeopardising the future of your business. 

Are you confident your IT disaster recovery plan is robust enough to limit business downtime if you were faced with an IT issue? How long do you realistically think you could continue working without access to your systems and data?

Make sure you’re properly protected

Effective IT disaster recovery planning is crucial to keep your business operating smoothly in the event of a disaster. It’s also important that everyone involved in your organisation knows what to do to maintain business continuity and minimise downtime. 

A successful disaster recovery plan should include: 

Goals – What do you hope to achieve by having a disaster recovery plan in place? How quickly do you need each of your systems back up and running in order of priority? The maximum amount of acceptable data loss. 

Responsibility – Who is responsible for ensuring your Disaster Recovery Plan is put into motion should a disaster occur? 

Inventory – A full, up to date list of your IT Systems. 

Procedures – Understand what backup and disaster recovery solutions you have in place and how to recover your data.

We will work with you to understand your business needs and the systems you use, recommending the best, industry-leading cloud backup solutions, or disk-based backup giving you peace of mind that your systems and data can be recovered should the worst happen.

Disaster recovery planning can help limit business downtime caused by:

Human error 
With teams collaborating on documents, deleting data accidentally is not as uncommon as you might think. 

Cyber attack 
From phishing emails to malware, cybercrime is on the rise with data being a prime target.  

Hardware failure 
As technology continues to advance, failures happen less frequently - but when they do, they can cause big problems. 

Hardware theft or loss
With more people working remotely, more devices are in turn being lost or stolen. 

Natural disaster 
Fires, flooding, or global pandemics can all stop a business in its tracks. 

Power outage
Businesses can’t function without power, and sometimes outages can last for some time causing data loss.
