The Best Defense is a Good Offense
It’s that special time of year when the threat of fire, flood, severe storms, water damage and even theft are very real. This is why ensuring your company’s critical data is backed up and protected in the case of power loss or system damage. To help you protect your valuable business assets, here are a few simple tips:
Off Site Storage
Backing up your data at an offsite location with dedicated and secure servers and cloud solutions is a must. While regularly backing up your data is crucial, many business owners only backup their files on in-house servers and hard drives. If those servers are damaged or those hard drives are stolen, you’ll quickly find yourself helpless. The easiest solution for this is having a system in place at another location.
Safe from the Surge
Quality surge protectors are a simple but often overlooked solution to protecting your computers and data during storm season. Remember quality cannot be skipped here. Try opting for a high-quality surge protector combined with a power supply batter backup.
Head for High Ground
Flooding is a real threat when it comes to severe storm season. This is why it’s very important to make sure your critical equipment such as servers are lifted off the floor. Server racks are inexpensive and can be easily installed to help minimize flood damage. This is also a situation in which cloud backup solutions can save the day.
Have a Plan
Make sure you have a plan in place in case disaster does strike. You need to protect your business continuity and this means having a plan in place so employees and systems can continue to work and keep the business running no matter the situation. Make sure your staff knows where to go, who to call and how to access critical files, data and software.
