Without access to its data a business can’t operate

We’re all aware of the explosion of data – which is growing exponentially year on year. On the journey to digitisation business models have fundamentally changed. Without access to its data a business can’t operate – and that data is held everywhere – in the cloud, on-premise, and on mobile devices – which create challenges for traditional backup methods. Looking after company data is business critical – and how you store data and backups are subject to an ever growing list of regulatory and legal frameworks – and legal implications for non-compliance – see the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DGPR).

The cost of not backing up your data
The loss of data, whether it’s due to a system outage or security breach has a significant impact on a business – on productivity, the finances and in some cases legally.

To determine the impact of data loss, and the ensuing downtime, you need to understand the cost to your business of downtime per minute, per hour and other less direct costs such as loss of reputation and customer churn. Does your existing backup strategy involve multiple processes to safeguard data that’s held in various locations? Do you even know where all your data resides?!

Have you checked your restore process?
The primary reason to backup is to recover data after it’s been lost – to restore it as part of an overall disaster recovery strategy. How quickly could you restore your data if it was deleted, corrupted or breached? Testing the process for backup – and evaluating the chosen method and how often it takes place – and testing how quickly and efficiently you can restore all data to meet your data recovery RPOs and RTOs.

So we understand the risks – but what’s the solution?
Modern Networks offer Backup as a Service (BaaS) – a cloud-based service that provides end-to-end data protection for our customers. This means that we can protect your complete organisation – including services, desktops, mobiles, tablets and cloud-based applications – and backup all your data into a single consolidated repository. Because our BaaS is centrally configured and monitored this means that it’s much simpler to backup and restore than with traditional methods – whether you’re protecting a single server or hundreds of devices.

Just one backup solution regardless of where your data resides. And it’s scalable so as your data grows you can pay-as-you-go.  And if a disaster was to strike restore times are significantly reduced to minutes/hours rather than days.

You’re very welcome to trial the service first. We offer a 30-day free trial so you can see for yourself how end-to-end data protection keeps you safe. Please give us a call and we can sort that out for you.
