How much thought have you honestly put into your business’s data recovery procedure? It’s likely that you, like many other businesses out there, are taking a minimalist approach with both your data backup and disaster recovery. It’s not that you aren’t aware that they’re a good thing; you might just feel that you don’t need it because you feel hackers have no reason to compromise your data. Unfortunately, that’s what hackers are counting on: complacency.
One of the many reasons your business needs a data recovery solution in place is data theft from hackers. If this occurs, you won’t be able to access mission-critical information that’s necessary for operations. That’s not mentioning the compliance problems you’ll find yourself in shortly following the breach, especially if sensitive customer information was stolen.
Naturally, the first thing you want to do in the event of a data theft is consult your current backup and recovery solution. However, you might be distraught if the recovery process is long, and you might run into complications if your data backups are out-of-date. While this is vastly superior to losing all of your data permanently, you want to recover as much data as possible in order to minimize your overall losses.
Furthermore, if your business has no discernible data backup and disaster recovery plan in place, you stand to lose everything in an instant. You should never underestimate the value of your business’s data. A company normally holds onto financial information of clients, Social Security numbers of employees, and other sensitive information which can be very lucrative to hackers when sold on the Black Market. This is more than enough reason for a hacker to try to access your network.
When your business’s network faces a data breach, you need a lifeline to hold onto. This is what PACE Technical Services’s Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solution accomplishes. In terms of recovery speed, you won’t find a better resolution for your business’s troubles. The BDR takes continuous snapshots of your data throughout the day, then sends them to an external data center for secure storage until they’re needed. This means that your data is always up to date, which minimizes data loss in the event of a disaster.
Furthermore, the BDR solution enables rapid data recovery, which helps your business get back on its feet following a data breach. It does this by acting as your server in the event of a data breach or hardware failure. Your data is restored to the device, which temporarily resolves your downtime issues while you decide on a fix for your server woes.
