We're now well into the first few months of 2017, and with this new year, many companies are setting their IT budgets. As you make your strategic plans for the year, it's vital that you consider disaster recovery plan. A disaster recovery plan can seem like a daunting task, but it could be the difference between your company weathering a disaster or shutting its doors. Here's how managed network services fit into a disaster recovery plan.
Disaster Recovery: Back-Ups and Security
These days, it's not uncommon to hear about even industry giants being victims of a cyber attack. It's easy to see how a disaster can happen when even large companies like Target and Sony are in the news for stolen data. Of course, it doesn't take this kind of issue for your business to be in a tight spot: a flood, fire, or theft of physical assets can leave you equally unable to operate.
If the worst happens in your business, it's crucial that you can continue with day-to-day operations. For that, you'll need your most valuable asset: your company information. Managed network services can help you keep this information secure with back-ups and cloud services.
- Managed network services provide offsite backups that can be accessed no matter where you are, allowing you to continue operating even if you can't access your office.
- Disaster recovery isn't expensive. It's a common misconception that disaster recovery will cost you too much, but with low subscription pricing models, you'll be able to experience the many benefits of managed network services.
- Downtime is expensive. Your company shouldn't be investing in downtime. Managed IT services can help you with network monitoring to keep your business up and running.
