It is critical for every business to have a backup and disaster recovery plan. It has been shown that 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster. Your data is critical to your business. New viruses are now targeting your file system, for instance the crypto locker virus will encrypt all the data files it finds on your system including some files on remote hosts. After it encrypts these files it will hold them for ransom. Without a backup many people are forced to pay this ransom to get their data back.
LANTEC Systems, Inc. offers a variety of backup solutions to meet the needs of its business partners. We highly recommend an onsite and offsite backup policy. Some other IT companies just recommend an offsite strategy. The challenge with this strategy is that the recovery time can be days which most of our partners cannot afford. The onsite strategy allows for a quick recovery to keep downtime to a minimum while the offsite strategy is designed for disaster recovery when a localized catastrophe happens.
One of our engineers would be happy to discuss a strategy that fits into your budget while keeping your data protected.
