Data Protection

Onsite/Offsite Data Backup

Offsite data protection and backups are essential for any business aiming to safeguard its critical information. By storing data in a remote location, businesses can protect against data loss caused by natural disasters, cyberattacks, and hardware failures. In fact, companies that experience significant data loss often face severe financial consequences.

Offsite backups ensure that data remains secure and recoverable, allowing businesses to quickly restore operations without significant downtime. This strategy not only enhances data security but also offers peace of mind by ensuring business continuity in the face of unexpected events​.

Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery in the context of data and IT refers to the strategies and processes that organizations implement to protect and restore their data, hardware, software, and IT infrastructure in the event of a disruptive incident. These incidents can range from natural disasters, such as floods or earthquakes, to cyberattacks, hardware failures, and human errors.

A robust disaster recovery plan (DRP) ensures that an organization can quickly recover and resume critical operations with minimal downtime and data loss. This plan typically includes several key components:

Key Components

  • Data Backup: Regular backups of critical data are essential. These backups should be stored offsite or in the cloud to ensure they are safe from onsite disasters.
  • Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO): RPO refers to the maximum acceptable amount of data loss measured in time (e.g., if backups are done every 24 hours, the RPO is 24 hours). RTO refers to the maximum acceptable downtime after a disaster (e.g., if the RTO is 4 hours, systems must be restored within that time).
  • Infrastructure and Systems Recovery: This includes having redundant systems and hardware that can take over in the event of a failure, as well as detailed procedures for restoring IT infrastructure and applications.
  • Communication Plan: Clear communication channels and protocols to ensure that all stakeholders are informed and updated throughout the recovery process.
  • Testing and Updates: Regular testing of the disaster recovery plan to identify any weaknesses and ensure that all staff are familiar with their roles in the event of a disaster. The plan should be updated regularly to address new threats and changes in the IT environment.

Why Use A MSP?

The average cost of employing a full-time IT specialist, including benefits, insurance, and taxes, can vary based on several factors such as location, experience, and specific industry requirements. Generally, the cost for a full-time IT specialist in the United States is around $60,000 to $90,000 per year. When you include benefits such as health insurance, retirement contributions, and paid leave, along with legally required costs like Social Security and Medicare taxes, the total cost to the employer can increase significantly.

We can reduce these costs drastically while maintaining an intimate knowledge of your network and your staff. By hiring an MSP (Managed Service Provider) we essentially become your dedicated IT staff at a fraction of the cost.
