Disaster Recovery Plan Roadmap
Learn how automatic backup delivers guaranteed business data
protection and recovery—no matter the threat.
When ransomware hits, the average small business experiences two full days of downtime. One-third of businesses lose revenue and all experience brand and loyalty damage that’s harder to quantify. To stop the bleeding, most small businesses end up paying at least $2,500 to get their data back. But paying the ransom doesn’t guarantee anything. Plenty of businesses have fully complied with the ransom demands, only to have the ransomer increase the ransom request—or simply take off with the ransom and the data.
Learn how small and midsized businesses are increasingly adopting virtualisation to deliver consolidation, improve data back up and disaster recovery and increase security with an in-depth new paper from the Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
A recent survey by IBM and the Ponemon Institute of more than 2,400 security professionals worldwide turned up some astounding findings: While more than half—53 percent—of respondents said that in the past two years they had suffered at least one data breach, and nearly three quarters—74 percent—said that in the past one year they had faced threats from human error, only 25 percent have an incident management plan in place to address the inevitable. And two thirds—66 percent—lack confidence that their company can effectively
recover from an attack.

Special network technology is needed to ensure that site failover and failback occurs reliably and predictably. An ideal solution should provide reliable network connections, manage inbound and outbound traffic over multiple WAN links, failover to a secondary data center if all links at the primary data center are down, and eliminate deployment barriers and costs of multi-homing with BGP (Border Gateway Protocol).

Backup, despite the breathless hyperbole of many in the industry, is simply a form of insurance. What's important about your backup strategy is getting your systems and data protected in the most effective and affordable manner possible. Speaking plainly - you must be careful that you are in control of your backup strategy rather than your backup strategy (and vendor) being in control of you.
