Data Protection and Recovery For Every Size Business

The loss of information can mean the end of your business. That may sound dramatic, but it’s true. In fact, three out of four businesses that suffered a major data loss closed their doors in the last 10 years. 

That is why data protection is critical to your business. It not only provides peace of mind (and helps you keep your stability if a loss does occur) – it could be what makes or breaks your business’ success. And data protection isn’t just for large businesses. Even small home businesses with less information on the line can suffer from data losses. 

That is why we want to share which data protection and recovery solutions your business should be looking at based on its size. 

Data Protection for Remote Workers 

Whether you and your team have been working remotely for years or you just got on board the work-from-home train, you know that working away from the office has its perks. 

You also know the frustrations that come along with it. Especially when it comes to securely accessing data and sharing it with your team. 

The good news is, there are some great solutions out there that don’t require large investments in hardware and endpoint fees. 

  • Regular automated backups – this means you will no longer have to worry about when you last backed up your computers. Automatic backups ensure data is stored at set intervals so you will have the most current data in case of a recovery.
  • Canadian Cloud-Based Backup – this solution will move data to an offsite, secure location and make sure it stays within Canada where Canadian privacy laws apply.  
  • Offsite Backup that is simple to use – Physical storage in your computer or at the office can be easily damaged. Offsite backup gives you an additional copy of your data that is accessible without VPN's or direct connection in case something happens.

Data Protection for Small to Medium Businesses

As your business grows, so does your data.  

As your business gets bigger, data becomes more than just information and cloud servers. 

It becomes a map of routers, servers, apps and software, IP addresses, policies, networks and so much more. That is why growing businesses also need infrastructure duplication. It will streamline the recovery process in case of a data loss. 

If you are a small or medium business, you will want to consider the above solutions for remote workers and home offices, as well as:

  • Local hardware – this will give you a secure on-site storage solution that will allow for faster retrieval of large files.
  • Ability to back up data and virtualized infrastructure – this will duplicate your infrastructure so that you can quickly recover it.
  • Optimization for all major server virtualization platforms – most servers only use 15% of their capacity. Server virtualization lets you divide one server into multiple virtual servers so that you can utilize more of the capacity. This means your hardware resources will be available on-demand for the applications and systems you decide are the most critical. And that equals less downtime and technical support without adding more(costly) physical hardware. 

Data Protection For Enterprises 

As your data grows and your IT infrastructure becomes more complex, network and data protection will become more complex as well. 

Well, traditional solutions may meet your backup and recovery needs, they won’t give you the protection of a private network (not to mention, the convenience and simplicity a private network provides). 

Best of all, these solutions will help you get back up in hours. You won’t be waiting days for all of your data to fully recover. 

In addition to the previously mentioned solutions, you will also want: 

  • Private Hybrid protection (local and cloud) – this allows you to benefit from the retrieval speed of local hardware as well as the remote convenience of cloud storage all while ensuring your data and infrastructure is secured on a private network.
  • Bare metal recovery agents – this will allow you to fully restore all of the contents of your computer’s hard disk including operating systems, software, user settings, files and data using a system image. 
  • SQL, Exchange, Windows and Linux agents
