Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity and IT Security
In a world where uncertainty is more and more reliant on technology, Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) are no longer a nice to have, but essential in a company’s long term planning.
The increasing complexities and interdependencies of business processes, systems and applications means that business continuity planning (BCP) must be an integral part of any successful business.
The ability to minimize disruption and get systems back as normal could be the difference between a small inconvenience and bankruptcy.
The need is here for people to access their information quicker than ever before. Using a Managed Service such as Microsoft Exchange Business Email or Microsoft SharePoint, information is stored more securely and backed up in a much more efficient way than most businesses would be able to on-site.
The traditional disaster recovery requirements of 24-48 hours to get a business back up and running with their data is well within the capability of a business due to the fact that the information is all securely stored and backed up at the Hosting provider.
