“Lose Your Data and you could Lose Your Business.”
The danger of a catastrophic data loss is growing by the hour. Ever lost your data? Scary isn’t it. Are you willing to bet the ranch that it won’t happen again? Each day you open the doors to your business without a Data Continuity plan in place, is the same as betting everything on the old cliché…”It‘ll never happen to me.”
Next to your people your data is your single most valuable asset. It drives your business. Imagine coming to work and not being able to access your Customer lists…product status…accounts receivable… accounts payable…cash flow statements, intellectual property. And, God forbid, what about all your government compliance records? Gone! Today, your data is the lifeblood of your business.
Your data is literally your new front door. You can’t open your doors, if you can’t open your data. You can replace your buildings…your trucks…machinery… inventory. All are replaceable
What are the odds you’ll get hit? Think about it. Are we not living in highly volatile, unpredictable times? Dramatic changes take place daily…both man-made and natural. Tsunami’s, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Severe Storms, Flash Floods, Earthquakes, Fires, Vandalism, Riots, theft, disgruntled employees, Oil Spills, etc. Your odds are not getting better…they’re getting worse. Get caught in any of these events and it could mean the end of your business. Sure, you can buy business interruption insurance. So what? You still won’t be able to open your doors and even if you do that doesn’t mean your business will survive.
Gartner Group (a leading technology research company) estimates that 70% of businesses that suffer a major data loss go out of business within 18 months.
Our 3 Step Business Continuity Approach
STEP #1: Research, and quantify the risk you are taking by not having a plan in place, and determining the R.O.I. for putting a plan in place. "For instance, how long would it take to rebuild your business if disaster strikes without a plan in place?" What is the bottom line in terms of losses? Are there environmental hazards that your business infrastructure is exposed to and what are the costly legal ramifications? What about the Regulatory Compliance requirements in your industry….Regulations such as the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Ace (HIPAA) and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and other state and federal laws?
STEP #2: Design a complete business continuity solution tailored for your business. Solutions include continuous data mirroring, encrypted off-site storage, File and Folder Level Recovery, Failover Virtualization, granular Exchange recovery and bare metal backups. Delivering the security and reliability that’ll let you sleep nights.
STEP #3: Operationally we research and identify which data will be required to be backed up (both current and past), your data growth rate and determine the frequency of backed ups.
Don’t become a statistic.
