The Importance of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity

Posted by Sarah Becker Tue, 24 Sep 2013 12:30:00 GMT


Today, information is one of the most critical assets an organization has. Because of this, organizations must protect their data, as today is the age when people expect, and organizations must deliver, information anytime, anywhere.

Various outside influences, such as natural disasters or malicious hackers, can negatively impact business processes and thus interrupt business continuity. For example, according to an article published last year by Tech Radar, 49% of businesses reported experiencing some type of data loss in the past year. We imagine that this number has increased since this article was published and these enterprises faced a halt in business processes.

In order to prevent interruption of business processes, enterprises must develop new strategies for protecting critical data via the best counteraction to disasters: prior preparation. A pre-developed disaster recovery plan as well as VPN technology should be a cornerstone of any new initiative.

State-of-the-art VPN technology enables IT teams to achieve this objective. VPNs give employees the anytime, anywhere access they crave, while it also enables IT teams to safely and swiftly back up data from a threatened server to other servers throughout the organization.
