You have insurance to protect your business from disaster. What about insuring your business data?
Your hard drive crashes. You hit “Save” without thinking and an important version is overwritten and lost forever. Someone accidentally deletes a folder of contracts, quotes or evidence photos. Office crashes midway through a save and your file won't open. Your external hard drive for backups won't connect to your machine and it clicks and ticks when you plug it in. An encryption virus locks all of your documents on your network drive.
Your business systems and data are the life blood of your business. Having a backup is a good idea. Having a backup that you can be confident is completely free of malware, viruses or accidental human error is a better idea. Having a comprehensive disaster protection solution that delivers a business-wide high detailed recovery strategy, automated your protection with off-site storage is your insurance policy to quick recovery.
Imagine the pain if you were to lose a few critical documents or financial data. Worse still imagine the heartache that a full blown disaster that prevented normal operation of your business for even a couple of weeks.
Uncertainty is a built-in risk
The simple fact is that electronic devices have a shelf life. Your systems, data and business operation rest on that uncertainty. It is inevitable that every piece of electronic equipment is doomed for failure or obsolence at some stage, and may come in many forms:
- mechanical hard drive failure
- operating system failure
- power surge damage
- accidental overwrite or deletion
- file loss
- file corruption
- hackers or ransomware
- employee sabotage
- support reaches end of life
- water, electrical or fire damage
You Must Act Before Disaster Occurs
Disaster is preventable. As a business owner you just want peace of mind. Disaster recovery and business continuity is dependent on acting early.
The first step is recognising the potential for something to occur. Having a well thought out and tested strategy ensures your business continuity and data protection for when that time comes. Isn't this why you insure your house, car or health?
The second step is acting before it happens. Whether you need to protect a single MYOB datafile, a few laptops out in the field, or your entire network, we can design and implement a comprehensive plan.
But again it means acting NOW.
