Businesses are becoming more reliant on their technology and data to gain competitive advantage, but those technologies also make them more vulnerable to disaster. From ransomware attacks and hackers, to insider threats and employee error. There are a host of threats that could do catastrophic damage to your business.
The best way to prevent this damage is with a comprehensive backup and disaster (BDR) system. But, with so many competing solutions on the market, how do you choose the right one for your business?
In order to choose the right protections, you must be clear on the difference between the backup and disaster recovery concepts. Although they’re similar, there are differences between the two.
For businesses, data backup is not enough. The difference between the two strategies is the difference between inconvenience and a complete shutdown of your business. Data backups are convenient when, for example, an intern accidentally deletes data. But, disaster recovery is required to have full business resiliency and continuity. To put it simply, you need both.
A solid back-up and disaster recovery solution must be customized to your business needs, covering production data from line of business applications, as well as important databases and communication platforms, like email and collaboration software.
When implementing a BDR solution, there are a few important steps you’ll want to take.
Designing, deploying and testing BDR solutions involves difficult and time-consuming work, which is often far outside the ability of most small and midsized businesses.
