DO I REALLY NEED DISASTER RECOVERY?
Evolve IP’s recent survey found that one-third of companies have experienced a disaster that affected their business, with the leading cause of incidents and outages being hardware failure / server room issues (47 percent).
93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.1
20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.2
Of those without a DRP, 80% that experience a significant data loss are likely to go out of business within one month.3
54% of organizations spend less than $50,000 annually on DR and BC.4
