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 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.
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.
