A Case for Managed Backup Services
John, “It Won’t Happen to Me”
– Everyone thinks it won’t happen to them
– In reality, it’s not “if” but “when”.
– Your business data is a critical asset that deserves professional protection.
– You could be taking chances with subpar backup.
Let’s talk about what’s at stake
Your Business Runs on Data
Small and medium-sized businesses like yours and mine take many forms but create enormous value in the global economy.
Your business runs on data—you likely couldn’t operate even a day without it. So, how do you ensure you can always access and use it?
Everyday Calamities: Device Failure
You rely on critical IT devices, including servers, laptops, desktops, and drives. However, IT equipment can fail for many different reasons, including overheating, fan or drive issues, or firmware problems.
Everyday Calamities: Data Corruption Issues
Not all data is equally valuable. You rely on customer and other databases and probably back them up regularly.
What happens if a software application crashes and that critical data gets corrupted?
Everyday Calamities: Extreme Weather and Natural Disasters
Businesses like yours and mine may experience disruption due to weather and other events.
Over the past few years, we’ve seen hurricanes, flooding, ice storms, earthquakes, and fires limit access to offices and sites.
During the pandemic, COVID-19 restrictions have also kept employees and IT teams out of offices and sites.
Everyday Calamities: Ransomware Attack
Everyone is afraid of ransomware, and for good reason. Small and medium-sized businesses are increasingly targeted, as their security is typically less mature than enterprises.
99% of all ransomware attacks rely on human intervention, meaning cybercriminals are constantly emailing and waiting for your employees to slip up.
|It’s not uncommon for cyber attackers to post stolen data online, even if you’ve paid a ransom, or to target you a second time.
