How to Prepare for an IT Disaster

How to Prepare
May 8, 2018 / Evolve IP

We’ve all heard that when it comes to security threats and outages, it’s not “if” disaster will strike, it’s “when”. So, how will your organization respond? Do you have the proper infrastructure in place to thwart a potential IT disaster? And when a disaster does strike, is your organization poised to recover quickly?

While 100% prevention of an IT disaster is impossible, there are several ways you can ensure the business impact is minimal. How? Cloud Services.

Here are just a few of the many ways cloud services can keep your business running and protect your data:

  • Backup and Disaster Recovery
    Your last line of defense in a site-wide disaster, backup and disaster recovery solutions allow you to recover at the systems level. An absolutely necessary component of your IT strategy, backup and disaster recovery deliver peace of mind that your systems will always be recoverable, even when disaster strikes.
  • File Level Backup
    A good file sync and share service is more than just a way for your team to collaborate on the go, it’s a vital component of your organization’s security strategy. With file level backup, you can ensure that even in the event of a site-wide disaster, employees maintain anytime access to their files.
  • Cloud-to-Cloud Backup
    Cloud-to-cloud backup fills in the gaps left by some of the most commonly used SaaS applications, such as Office 365. Many of these cloud applications fall short in the way of cloud-retention. A good cloud-to-cloud backup solution can help you protect critical business data while providing enhanced features to maximize your user experience and more importantly, security. Backup for Office 365 and similar cloud-to-cloud backup solutions ensure that organizations maintain full control of their data.

How to Prepare for an IT Disaster

Data Protection and Compliance

If your organization is subject to regulatory compliance, there are a number of requirements you must meet in regards to networking, remote access, encryption, etc. A very common concern amongst businesses evaluating cloud services is that of security. And given the complexities of the landscape, identify qualified Service Providers can be challenging.

From its inception, Evolve IP recognized that security management and data integrity were not just important features and nice-to-haves, they are critical requirements demanded by enterprise customers and those subject to formal compliance regulations.
