Disaster Recovery

Recovering from Hardware and software failures...

Could your business survive if all your IT infrastructure or data was destroyed in a disaster like a fire, flood, theft or other unforeseen event?

Every business needs a Disaster Recovery Plan to ensure business continuity in the event of an accident or serious mishap that destroys part or all of its IT resources. The cost of physically replacing lost IT equipment can be bad enough, but it isn’t the biggest issue. Your [B] data alone is a priceless resource that your business can’t afford to lose. In some industries the loss of all or even part of your client data could be enough to totally shut down or destroy your business.

Your data is vitally important to you and we understand this. Businessessentials can advise clients on realistic disaster recovery planning, ensuring your business can continue seamlessly in the event of the unexpected and specialise in effective recovery control with three main approaches:

• Preventive

We work with clients with an aim to actually preventing a disaster level IT event from occurring in the first place

• Detective

We scrutinise our clients systems to detect unwanted events that could lead to data loss and give you a planned route through a potential disaster

• Corrective

Should the worst happen we specialize in fully correcting and restoring your system after a serious event

Business Continuity

Keeping your business going in the event of disaster

These approaches are all just part of how we work proactively with all our clients to create the most effective plan and a sustainable IT infrastructure. With our data back-up options we ensure that, should disaster strike, our clients can resume their normal computing capabilities as quickly as possible, ensuring business continuity.

Data Integrity

Is your data 100% safe?

Making sure that your confidential information can only be accessed or modified by those authorised to do so, and is safe from any possible physical damage, is a key concern for any business. We offer our clients myriad ways to bolster their data security including:

• Maintaining network administration and access levels for all your employees

• Setting up remote access to ensure your data never actually leaves the office or the Cloud, preventing the risk of its loss on misplaced storage devices or laptops

• Documenting system administration and maintenance procedures

• Protecting hardware and storage media from power surges or electrostatic discharges

• Keeping transmission mediums such as cables covered and protected so that can’t be tapped or cut
