Your data is vital to your business; protect it by backing up daily with these safety procedures in place.
If your existing backup system is beginning to show its age, then perhaps now is a good time to evaluate other options that were not available previously. For years, backing up to tape was the most reliable, cost effective, and widely used method for companies of all sizes. The cost of hard disk based storage has rapidly decreased in recent years. Therefore, disk based backups are now a more cost effective and efficient means for data backup and preferred over the older tape based systems.
Online backup service providers are a very convenient way to back up your data securely offsite without the worry of rotating tape schedules and lost or stolen tapes. If your business currently utilizes server virtualization technology, you may want to consider looking into replicating your servers offsite to a standby location. Offsite servers can then be quickly utilized to recover from problems ranging from minor data corruption to the destruction of your primary virtual environment.
Vigilance is the key to blocking online attacks with these defensive maneuvers.
Without the proper Internet firewalls or anti-virus solutions, your system can become quickly compromised. We recommend using Cisco®, Sonicwall®, or Fortinet® firewalls, and we can install these to ensure performance and security. Since malicious code is always evolving, it is vital to ensure your operating system and software patches are deployed as quickly as possible. Through our remote monitoring service, we keep a watchful eye on your IT network continuously and receive alerts if anything needs immediate attention.
Our remote monitoring service is peace of mind, it’s that simple. While you focus on your business, we keep an eye on your network while not being directly connected to your network or physically on site at your business. The monitoring system will notify us before or immediately after a problem is discovered on your network. Most of the time we’ll be aware of the issue before you are.
