Systems fail, disasters strike, and staff make mistakes. Whether it’s an accident or human error, you need a dependable data backup, and disaster recovery plan that mitigates potential data loss and downtime before they impact your bottom line.
Over 50% of both medium and small businesses don’t have the right backup and recovery solution. Worryingly, they’re not even aware of the looming danger. Should disaster strike, many wouldn’t be able to recover their data.
Why Cloud Backup and Data Recovery Matters
Your small business probably has vital information that it can’t afford to lose. From tax records to computer systems files, business data is vital in running a business. When it gets lost or stolen, you need to make sure you can recover it. Otherwise, your operations will stop, and you’ll lose customers.
Protecting your business data and operations against loss is both a moral duty and legal responsibility for your Melbourne-based business. Without access to vital data, operations can quickly grind to a halt. Your IT systems are only as good as the last backup and the underpinning recovery processes and technology that you use to protect it.
