Working from home is not going anywhere. In fact, research shows that post-pandemic 42% of employees who worked strictly from a company-based location will not return to the office. Do you know how this will impact your business? Learn more about the tools needed to protect your client data and improve employee productivity.
Check out the latest happenings in the world of IT from our Locknet® experts. In this issue, we highlight some topics your organization should be aware of to minimize risks. Specifically, mitigating insider threats to your security and the risks of hanging on to legacy data.
Disaster recovery planning is a critical aspect of a business continuity plan. We have seen an increase in disasters that can significantly impact IT infrastructure, and organizations are more prone to business downtime than ever before. Those include:
The productivity loss and reputational damage that businesses face with a disaster along with the financial consequences can have a catastrophic impact. According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses never reopen after a disaster and another 25% that do reopen will fail within a year. The stakes are high, so having a proactive plan in place to mitigate damage is crucial.
Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) is a great option for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) who don’t have the time, money, and resources required to maintain and test their own disaster recovery environment.
Disaster Recovery as a Service is a cloud service model that allows an organization to back up its data and IT infrastructure in a third-party cloud environment to regain access and functionality to IT infrastructure after a disaster. In the as-a-service model, the organization doesn’t have to own all the resources or handle disaster recovery management and instead can rely on a service provider to do so.
DRaaS should be considered for SMBs and other businesses with small IT teams who can’t afford the investment in time and resources for testing and implementing a disaster recovery plan. It can be a more affordable option than hosting your own disaster recovery infrastructure and IT staff in a remote location.
For many companies, DRaaS is a less costly and more effective solution than in-house disaster recovery. There are several benefits to consider:
Be prepared and protect your business’s data and IT infrastructure from the unexpected disruptions of a ransomware attack, hardware failure, or building disaster. Regular backups are important, but they have no value if you cannot restore them quickly and easily after a disaster.
