Through utilizing a methodically created, action plan oriented, Business Continuity Plan (BCP), an organization can limit their risk and exposure in the event of a crisis to quickly restore their systems and data. Backup and Disaster Recovery (BRD) is both a strategy and technology solution for ensuring a company’s business continuity.
A company’s data is more precious than gold and should be treated as such. A good backup strategy is essential in being able to quickly restore operations should there be a catastrophic negative event such as a fire, servers dying, or physical theft of hardware. When a business is down because they have no access to their data, the recovery time can mean the difference between thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue and employee time, and some businesses never recover.
An enterprise backup solution allows for saving to not only a local backup storage but also an off-site/cloud based backup location.

When the worst happens and a business is down due to a catastrophic negative event, a disaster recovery plan is the strategic playbook containing the step-by-step processes to quickly re-establish access to applications, data, and IT resources. A good disaster recovery plan takes into account all factors of the IT environment including things such as networks, servers, workstations, firewalls, individual and group access policies, and application security so that it can all be restored, failed over, or replaced as needed.
