A Backup Protects Your Business from Issues of All Kinds

A Backup Protects Your Business from Issues of All Kinds

Data has effectively become another currency - and just like any other currency, some is much more valuable than others. This is especially the case where your business’ data is concerned, and why it is so crucial that you keep it safe.

Valuable or not, you don’t want to lose any of your business’ data. That’s why White Mountain IT Services is here to help, with solutions that provide comprehensive backup and disaster recovery.

Keeping a backup in this way can help keep you from becoming a victim of data loss, regardless of the severity of the data loss event. For instance:

Accidental Deletion

You shouldn’t underestimate the potential impact that mistakenly deleting some critical data can have on your business. Fortunately, this impact can be deftly sidestepped so long as a backup solution is put in place. If your company is following good backup practices, you should have at least one copy of the deleted file in a backup, allowing you to restore it with little issue.

Data Corruption and Theft

Along a similar vein, a backup can be your saving grace if your data is stolen or targeted by a cyberthreat. This is especially the case when ransomware is involved, and your data has been encrypted. Rather than paying the ransom in the hopes of receiving the decryption key, or starting from scratch, a quick restoration from a backup can put you back in business (once the system has been wiped of the ransomware, of course).

This process is much easier when you have a business continuity plan to fall back on. This strategy recommends that you keep multiple copies of your backup, one isolated offsite for major repairs and more efficient migrations, and one on-premise for less severe loss incidents and quick fixes.

A Bonafide Disaster Event

Unfortunately, it can be hard to predict exactly what kind of disasters you need to protect your data from. While some are certainly more likely than others, even the least likely disasters need to be anticipated and prepared for. Fortunately, one of the most critical parts of preparing your business for any of these disasters is to have a backup ready and waiting. Ideally, you’ll never need to use it - especially for this reason - but you’ll be glad to have it if you do.

Many business owners don’t consider the possibility of any of these disasters before they happen, which leaves their company vulnerable. Don’t be one of these business owners.

Working with White Mountain IT Services will help you better prepare for disasters big and small, so you’ll be more able to weather through them and resume your operations. To learn more about business continuity planning and a BDR solution, give us a call at 603-889-0800.
