Expert Data Backup and Recovery Solutions by CodeBlue

No matter what business you are in, protecting your data is mission critical.

Data Backup and Recovery Services

Threats to your data – both from inside and outside your organisation continue to grow and are increasingly hard to combat. At the same time the value to your organisation of the data you produce and store continues to grow.

So, the challenge for organisations is to keep their data accessible so that it can be used to enhance business performance, whilst at the same time ensuring that data is secured and protected.

Safeguarding your sensitive data has never been so critical. With a plethora of hazards ranging from accidental deletion to hardware malfunctions, ransomware attacks to natural disasters, evading such threats entirely is a formidable task.

You can significantly minimise the impact of these catastrophes on your operational framework by implementing a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery strategy for your business.

Here, we’re going to explore the benefits of data backup and recovery services in mitigating the risks of data loss, recovering your operations quickly in case of disaster, and maintaining business continuity.

Your Data is Subject to Unprecedented Risks

Your organisation deals with huge amounts of data. With so much data to work with, the impact of data loss becomes more severe.

And while the possibility of a cyber attack is the first thing that comes to mind when talking about data loss, it’s not the only risk you are exposed to.

It could be an employee accidentally deleting your data, a lightening strike on your data centre, a malicious insider with high-level access privileges, or an unexpected power outage. Any of these can impact your normal business operations.

And if you really want to fortify your organisation against data loss and ensure you recover quickly, you need to take actionable steps to start protecting your data today instead of waiting until it’s too late.

Some of the most common data loss risks include:

Cyber Attacks

One of the most significant security risks for your organisation is ransomware. Ransomware can encrypt your company’s customer and mission-critical data, which can lead to financial losses, loss of trust, reputation damage, and in severe cases, complete business failure.

High profile ransomware attacks continue to be a major risk planning factor for companies large and small and the sophistication and frequency of cyberattacks grow year on year according to this article by Forbes.

Natural Disaters

Ultimately – whether you store your data in a Datacentre or in the cloud – your data will reside in a physical facility. These facilities can be subject to a range of natural events such as fire, earthquake, flooding, hurricanes and even tsunami.

While you can’t really stop natural disasters from happening, implementing a disaster recovery strategy puts you in a strong position to restore data and resume operations normally after a disaster.

Human Error

This may sound surprising, but human error is one of the most common causes of data loss. An employee may accidentally delete critical data that can disrupt your operations. Human error may also lead to unplanned power outages, which affects your service availability and causes periods of downtime.

According to recent research by Thales Group, 55% of respondents said that data loss was caused by human error, which in the research was actually a higher risk than getting hit by ransomware.

Get Peace of Mind When Your Data is Backed up and Recoverable

Whether it’s a flood, cyberattack, or power outage, no organisation is safe from disasters, regardless of their size. We believe deploying a robust data backup and disaster recovery solution is the best way to protect your operations, achieve IT infrastructure resilience, and ensure data recoverability in case of disasters.

Ransomware Recovery

Ransomware attacks have become more frequent than ever, and unless you have healthy, fully recoverable backups of your mission-critical data, you’ll likely end up losing your data permanently, unless, of course, you decide to pay the ransom, which in itself is no guarantee you will be able to recover all of your data.

Improved Disaster Recovery Capability

Here’s the hard truth: you can’t really fully recover from disasters unless you’ve anticipated and planned for them beforehand. It’s vital that you implement a full disaster recovery plan to improve resilience and ensure that your organisation is ready to bounce back quickly after a disaster.

You can think of disaster recovery as similar to insurance, with disaster recovery able to mitigate the impact of cyber-attacks, accidental deletion, natural disasters, and other forms of disruptions that could impact your organisation’s data.

Regulatory Compliance

Meeting compliance standards can be challenging and often requires you to maintain archives and records of your operations and customer data. Backing up your data and knowing how that data can be recovered can be beneficial in helping you comply with these requirements.

On top of that, DR solutions can be designed so that data is searchable, and this feature may help you respond to subpoenas and information discovery requests.

The main difference between backup and disaster recovery is that backups are used to preserve data for the purpose of data loss protection, while disaster recovery is a process of maintaining or re-establishing vital infrastructure and data following a disaster.

Backup is considered an integral part of your business’s disaster recovery solution. A backup is simply a copy of your data that’s created over a pre-set time interval to capture changes and updates. However, having data backups doesn’t guarantee that you’ll be able to reliably recover from data loss in a timely manner.

Disaster recovery, on the other hand, comprises backing up data, recovery testing and planning, redundancy and failover, and meeting recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO).

The 3-2-1-1-0 data backup strategy comprises having 3 copies of data that will minimise the risk of permanent loss of your mission-critical data.

It recommends creating two backups of your data on two different backup storage media other than where your production data resides; for example, one on SSD and one in the cloud.

The first “1” in the rule refers to creating one offsite backup of your data, typically in the cloud, while the second “1” recommends storing one data copy offline to create an air gap. An air-gapped backup isn’t physically connected to your primary network, so in case of a ransomware attack on your primary network, it’s guaranteed to remain clean.

Finally, the “0” in the rule directs organisations to scan and test the backups to ensure that they’re free of data corruption for a successful recovery process in case of disaster.

RPO, or Recovery Point Objective, refers to the maximum amount of time between your latest backup and the onset of disaster. It’s the maximum file age that you must recover to revert your organisation’s processes back to their pre-disaster conditions.

The RPO is used to determine the optimal backup frequency for your business. So, for example, if your company’s RPO is 24 hours, then you need to carry out daily backups to meet your RPO objectives.

RTO, or Recovery Time Objective, is the maximum amount of time within which your organisation can tolerate disrupted operations before complete recovery takes place. In other words, it’s the longest period of downtime your organisation can handle without incurring irreversible damage and excessively high financial losses.

Yes, we support multi-cloud backups. If you prefer to back up your data with multiple private or public cloud providers, we can manage that service for you.

Yes, we support hybrid-cloud deployments. Hybrid-cloud backups can be pretty handy if you already have some resources on-premises. We can create on-premises and cloud backups for your mission-critical data to help improve redundancy and backup data recovery in case of disaster.

Restoring data with our backup and disaster recovery solutions is designed to be easy to manage and customisable. You can choose between full, granular, or incremental backup data restoration, depending on your needs.
