The Importance of Back-Up & Disaster Recovery (BDR)

 

When do you buy an umbrella?  Before it rains.    -Ancient Tech Proverb

Many of you probably read or heard about the  Ransomware attack on Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center. This happens far more frequently than it is publicized. Our team at The Tech Consultants is constantly working proactively to defend your IT infrastructure against these attacks, which are becoming more sophisticated every day. One of the best ways to ensure recoverability from potential loss of data is to implement a robust Back-up & Disaster Recovery (BDR) system.

Cybercriminals are continuously evolving Malware to get around IT defenses. Our team is constantly updating the multiple layers of security used to protect our client’s network against malware & ransomware. For example, we install, manage and update multiple and sophisticated anti-virus and anti-malware systems. We also configure, manage and maintain our client’s firewalls, before any Malware makes it’s way to your critical IT Infrastructure. In spite of these efforts, malware is constantly changing, and even the best efforts can’t always stop a brand new virus.  For example, one of our clients was recently infected, even though all best practices were followed.  Thanks to the BDR system we had in place, recovery was instant. Without the BDR, the client could have been subjected to days of expensive down time, as well as having to pay a ridiculous sum of money to regain access to their files.

We provide a range of BDR solutions, to meet any budget. All BDR solutions include automatic off-site storage as well as on-site, disk-based storage. For mission-critical infrastructure that can never be down, we offer BDR systems that includes real-time replication of  your entire computing infrastructure. If you don’t already have a BDR system in place, we can work with your organization to help implement the best and most comprehensive BDR system for your business and budget. These safe, secure, reliable and tested Disaster Recovery / Backup Systems will give you peace of mind knowing that your data is always safe and accessible.

It’s far better than shelling out $17,000* to a cybercriminal. Call us to discuss how we may help you avoid harmful downtime and unnecessary costs. (818) 206-2149.
