Data Loss: A Business’ Biggest Faux Pas

Data Loss: A Business’ Biggest Faux Pas

Your business’ data is its lifeblood, which means that one of your internal priorities should be protecting it. While we often discuss the importance of your cybersecurity to defend against data theft and similar issues, it is also important to consider what would happen if the data loss was caused due to damage to the infrastructure it was stored on.

A firewall is useful but isn’t going to do much to help if your server is on fire.

Thankfully, we have Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) solutions to help businesses protect their data and their operational continuity. Whether you’re in the office, or anywhere from Akron to Zimbabwe, a BDR can help protect you from disasters and data loss of all kinds.

Look at it this way: would you ever go on a business trip without a spare set of clothes? Of course not—what if some shrimp cocktail dribbles onto your shirt during a mixer? Networking is a lot less effective with a stain that reeks of horseradish and crustacean.

You can think of data loss as the shrimp cocktail stain on your business—albeit to a much larger degree—in that it makes you look really bad. Think about it! A business losing huge chunks of their essential data is a terrible look and guaranteed to repulse a lot of their clients and prospects. So, just as you bring a spare set of clothes to the business trip, you want to make sure you have the means to restore your data should something happen to it.

You want to be sure you have a backup in place.

A BDR enables businesses to protect their data, with the confidence that it can always be recovered if the worst were to happen. The network-attached BDR backs up your data as often as every quarter of an hour on hard drives to give you quick and easy access. Meanwhile, a copy is also stored offsite in a storage facility. As a result, if your hardware and the BDR device are to be compromised, this redundant data is left untouched and safe.

Obviously, this sounds far better than manually saving files to the cloud, or saving them to portable drives, or—worst of all—saving all your data to a tape backup, relying on moving parts and antiquated technology. That’s like bringing a clown suit as your emergency change of clothes. The BDR, on the other hand, is a tailored and reliable ensemble waiting in the wings.

Don’t let an unlucky break create a gaffe like data loss. Reach out to our team of IT professionals to learn more about how BNMC can help protect your data. Give us a call at 978-482-2020 today.
