Business Continuity Planning: Is It Time for You to Plan for the Inevitable?

Business Continuity ManagementMost business owners are aware that downtime is inevitable as interruptions can take on many forms – from virus infections to power outages to floods to human errors. Would you be prepared to lose access to your data and applications tomorrow? How long would you be able to continue operating in a profitable manner? Traditional backups, such as tape, disk, and NAS devices, are often used as a method of recovering, however, this is a timely, expensive, and often unpredictable option.

Did you know the average data loss incident takes 7 hours to recover from and get back to normal operations?

Yes, you read correctly. According to IDC, the average data loss incident leaves you with 7 hours of downtime. When it comes to business continuity planning, only 59% of businesses have a formal, documented plan while 33% have an informal, undocumented plan. The harsh truth is that there are hundreds of situations that could disrupt your company – and a proper business continuity plan makes a world of different in letting you cope and get through disaster.

ClearPath IT Solutions knows that in today’s day and age, almost all businesses need a business continuity plan. Those same businesses truly can’t afford to operate without a proper plan in place, in order to ensure you’re able to recover. We provide:

  • Hybrid cloud backup that lets you store data to an on-premises device and in the cloud.
  • Local and offsite virtualization that let you restore backups locally or remotely in a secure cloud environment.
  • Screenshot backup verification that lets you know exactly when backups occurred and whether or not they were successful.

You have heard the horror stories. Many businesses that face significant data loss and/or downtime don’t ever fully recover – often closing down within 6 months due to hefty fines, reputational damage, and losing their clients’ trust.

Don’t become another data loss horror story. Contact ClearPath IT Solutions to find out more about our business continuity planning. Call (309) 263-5600 or email us at sales@clearpathIT.com for more information.
