Today, threats to your data come from all directions—cyber crimes, physical breaches, and natural disasters such as floods, fires and earthquakes. Any of these can compromise your data and stall your business or organization. What you need is a reliable cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) strategy.
How dangerous is disaster-related downtime to your business? According to a recent Gartner Report*, the cost can be debilitating.
Gartner estimates the business impact of downtime at $336,000 per hour
70% of companies experienced up to 10 hours of unplanned downtime
43% of organizations that experience substantial data loss as a result of an unplanned outage shut down for good
However, there are ways to protect your data. As the threat landscape continues to evolve and as cyber criminals become more sophisticated, many companies are moving their DR from in-house to management over to a third-party service provider. This allows time-strapped IT professionals to use automated technology which allows them to meet BC/DR requirements in a more cost-effective and reliable way. It also allows businesses to recover more quickly in the event of an emergency or natural disaster.
Working with a reputable Disaster Recovery As-A-Service (DRaaS) provider enables your business or organization to take advantage of highly scalable, secure and compliant infrastructure solutions. DRaaS allows you to reduce complexity, minimize risks, improve control and maximize your cost savings.
