The Best Solutions for Business Continuity
Business data protection is of the utmost importance for us at Higher State, so we know it is for you too. If our business is interrupted, clients lose access to data and their own businesses are placed at risk. This means that at HST we don’t simply back up our data on an external drive or cloud server. We have robust services and standards in place to ensure business continuity is in place at all times. This protects us, so that we can in turn protect our customers.
So, What is Business Continuity?
“Data back up simply answer the question: is my data safe? Can I get it back in case of a failure? Business continuity on the other hand, involves thinking about the business at a higher-level and asks: how quickly can I get my business operating again in case of system failure? (Datto).”
For example, if your server dies, you will have to do more than just get back your data. You will need to get a new server and update or reinstall your software. If your internet or power goes down, you may lose access to files. But, you may also have difficulty communicating with customers or completing sales.
Business Continuity solutions ensure that your downtime is minimized in the event of any type of disaster (natural or man made). They make sure your business is back up and running as quickly as possible.
