How will your business recover in the event or an emergency?

Unfortunately, things can happen to your business that you just can’t plan for. An act of God, a cyber attack or system failure are all things that can have a significantly negative effect on your business but are hard or near impossible to prevent.

Disaster recovery isn’t about preventing these acts, but about asking your business how well are you prepared for them.

You can’t plan for the new super malware, but what you can do is implement a range of procedures that, if disaster strikes, you can resume mission-critical functions as soon as possible. Saving your business from loss of profit, customers or worse from permanent closure.

At Evolvit we know the risk that your business operates under, and after working with companies spanning from community enterprises to multinational conglomerates, we are experts in finding a disaster recovery plan that will work for you no matter the circumstances.

Why Does Your Business Need a Disaster Recovery Plan?

A data backup and recovery plan are essentially integral processes – the key reason we back up data is to ensure that your organisation has copies of essential data in case of a disaster – and should be a vital part of any business’ core IT infrastructure.

Unfortunately, from cyber attacks to forces of nature, disaster can strike at any time and put your organisations operations at risk, including loss of data, and without a functional disaster recovery plan, your business is effectively shut down.

Through implementing a backup and disaster recovery plan, you are ensuring that your business can continue operating as close to normal as possible, reduce the amount of down time necessary to recover, and protect your valuable data.

Ultimately a disaster recovery plan is not just for eventualities, but is a continual process of testing, evaluating and restoring that prevents, anticipates and mitigates any future threats to your data.

What is Disaster Recovery?

Disaster recovery (DR) is an area of security planning that aims to protect an organization from the effects of potentially disastrous events, where vital resources, such as data, can be lost. Disaster recovery is a chain of processes that allows an organization to maintain or quickly resume mission-critical functions following a disaster.

A disaster can be anything that puts an organization’s operations at risk, anything from a cyberattack to a natural disaster. The goal with Disaster recovery is for a business to continue operating as close to normal as possible.

Essentially the disaster recovery process identifies and assesses potential risk factors to your organisation, then implements, and frequently tests, planned recovery procedures, which may involve anything from data backup to operating a separate physical site for restoring operations.

The primary objectives of IT/network disaster recovery planning include:

  • Minimizing disruption of business operations
  • Minimizing risk of delays
  • Ensuring a level of security
  • Assuring reliable backup systems
  • Aiding in restoration of operations with speed

We are experts in drawing up, developing and guiding you through the implementation of a comprehensive disaster recovery plan.

How Remote Hosted Desktops Enable SMB Growth

26th June 2020

An office-approved desktop that’s accessible to your entire workforce, no matter where they are or what device they’re using. This sounds like the productivity dream, especially in the wake of a pandemic that has forced many of us away from our offices and into remote working.

But it also sounds like a pricey dream; a boon that’s exclusive to enterprises and large companies with the budget to sink into IT projects. Some SMBs may also struggle to justify the expense. Do you really need your team to access work based computers when your team of ten can simply download the software or log into apps from their computers at home? Read more

A backup strategy is the only foolproof way to fight data loss. With even the smallest businesses generating terabytes of data, a sound backup strategy is crucial for business continuity. Infrequent batch backups are no longer sufficient.

However, many backup guides require business to make large capital investments upfront on hardware–that’s money that many businesses may not have. The myriad of options can also have owners lost in the technicalities.

Here’s a guide to help you determine and build a backup strategy that works for your needs and budget.
