Keep Your Business Safe With Backups & DR

It’s essential to have the right IT backup and disaster recovery (DR) systems in place if you want to safeguard your company’s digital assets.

From cyber-attacks and malware to hardware failures and natural catastrophes, having the right plan in place is essential. It can test your system, prevent loss and recover vital data in the event of a disaster.

The right strategy and solution


Your business will want an IT backup and stress test that can determine how well your system can withstand critical situations while at the same time operating at optimal capacity.

A good backup and DR strategy should include off-site/cloud storage of important information, regular data saving and backup, fireproofing, and protection against malware and viruses. It should also perform regular audits of your stress-testing recovery plan to ensure your data, servers, intranets and LANs are protected in an emergency.

A stress-testing recovery plan can identify weaknesses in your system and alert you to where improvements in your network’s defenses are required. This may then require data-loss-prevention and spam-filtering devices, mobile device management hardware, and firewalls for websites and applications.

Business processes and security applications


Before deciding on the best backup solution, consider your business processes and how a loss of computing capability could affect them.  Accent will walk through the best options for your business needs.

It’s also vitally important to keep your antivirus software current on all workstations and servers within your internal LAN, and to ensure they are able to isolate an affected machine before the contagion spreads.

Keep all production servers/network devices up to date with the latest patches, and scan for vulnerabilities on a consistent basis. The best DR plans include regular backups of all production-critical devices, secure and accessible recovery of those backups and a step-by-step recovery procedure that relevant personnel can understand clearly and initiate in an emergency.

The good news is that Accent Consulting can be responsible for all of your backup and DR needs while ensuring that your IT infrastructure is up to date and resilient. Sourced: Oneaffiniti
