Are Your Company Computers And Business Data 2020 Ready?

by Jan 2, 2020Blog, Managed IT

Congratulations, your workplace, computers, and vital data have made it through another year! Or have they? It’s time to say goodbye to 2019 and hello to 2020, which makes it the perfect opportunity to reflect on the past year’s successes – and failures – in terms of data protection and IT management. 

Data privacy has been a major topic in the news throughout 2019, with many organizations hitting the headlines when they fell victim to data loss or theft. As businesses continue to advance their technology systems, the risk to vital data is increasing. From hardware and software failures to natural disasters, genuine human error to targeted theft by hackers, there are many ways in which sensitive data can be leaked, lost, or passed into the wrong hands. In 2020 and beyond it won’t be enough to simply deal with these issues as and when they come up. Instead, businesses and organizations are expected to be proactive when it comes to protecting personal data.

As a managed IT company we’ve seen firsthand the impact that poor data protection can have on businesses in Tulsa Oklahoma. We’re passionate about helping businesses to become proactive in the protection of their valuable data. Here are three key services we recommend every business owner implements in 2020 to ensure their company data is safe from hardware failure, hackers, and natural disasters.

Offsite Cloud Data Backup Services

Many businesses are under the impression that onsite data backups are enough to protect their data should they experience failures of their computer systems. Sadly, they’re wrong. Backing up to onsite servers won’t protect data if the business is affected by fire, flood or extended power outage, or if its hardware is stolen.

To provide the best level of protection, data should be backed up to a secondary site. Cloud data backup is a fantastic solution because it ensures vital data remains available no matter what happens on business premises. If you have to close your offices for one reason or another, a cloud backup will allow you to continue to access critical data and keep your business running from an alternative site.

Our extensive managed data backup services ensure copies of your data are available both onsite and offsite. We’ll consider every possibility for data loss to ensure valuable information is thoroughly protected, no matter what happens.

Comprehensive Disaster Recovery Services

We’re well aware that it isn’t always possible to alleviate every potential risk to business operations, no matter how proactive a business is. However, companies can minimize the impact of disasters on their operations by having robust disaster recovery and business continuity plans in place.

Data backup is just one crucial aspect of disaster recovery. There’s also hardware, software, networking equipment, and communications tools to consider, as well as the practicalities of finding alternative workspaces. Without a comprehensive recovery strategy in place, disaster could lead to business operations grinding to a complete halt, which might lead to financial losses too extreme to recover from.

Our recovery services are tailor-made to each of our clients. We take into account the size, industry, and unique circumstances of every business to develop a strategy that will help them recover from disaster and continue to thrive, even in the most challenging circumstances.
