Not-so-fun fact: 52% of data loss is due to human error or system failure, rather than anything malicious.
A key component of JMARK’s approach to helping you carry on during a disaster is adhering to the most up-to-date methods set by the Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC) standard. Traditional backup methods (such as tape, disk, or online only) are often not sufficient due to their inability to recover data quickly and mitigate downtime. In addition, organizations that operate in highly regulated industries may find that regulators deem traditional backup methods unacceptable. Thus, technological innovations have established the comprehensive new standard of Intelligent Business Continuity. Only an IBC solution will ensure data protection, security, and instant recovery; mitigate downtime; and ensure continuity.
The ability to keep your business running in the event of disaster has immeasurable value, and with Intelligent Business Continuity, downtime after a disaster can be reduced to hours, minutes, or even seconds. Furthermore, there is quick and efficient transfer of files to off-site data centers, even with low bandwidth or busy networks, and critical data can be prioritized to be transferred off site first. Since backups are stored both locally and off site, the risk of downtime from a local disaster can be lowered. The backup process is fully automated with redundancy built in, and encryption and security both at rest and in transit is a top priority.
Accidents and catastrophic events can have a profound negative impact on business operations and continuity. Studies show that the majority of businesses who lose vital data or access to core systems file for bankruptcy within a year. Since data loss can have such an adverse affect on your business, implementing a preemptive disaster recovery plan can make the difference between staying afloat or going under.
Data loss should not lead to the end of your business. With a properly implemented, proactive plan, you can quickly bounce back from anything. When it comes to planning for the worst, it is essential to partner with a well-established provider that has decades of backup services expertise; offers plans designed specifically for your organization; and provides on-site and off-site recovery for data, applications, and systems.
A business continuity plan is much more than simply having data backups. JMARK works with you to develop strategies to limit disruptions as you recover. We also test your solutions, so you know before disaster strikes that they will work when you need them.
