Business Continuity

Data Backup Solutions in Salt Lake City

You know the feeling: when disaster strikes, helplessness sets in, and you are left wondering what you could have done to avoid it. Unfortunately, that’s the nature of disasters—they’re unpredictable and therefore unavoidable. But that doesn’t mean you can’t recover from a disaster. You just need to think ahead.

For a brick-and-mortar enterprise, disasters can take many forms. Storms spawn floods that may inundate your place of business. Hurricanes and tornadoes can obliterate whatever lies in their path. Fires of course devour most everything. And earthquakes have the power to level not just your place of business but the infrastructure of an entire region. But ultimately, physical assets and inventory can be replaced.

Your company’s data, however, is a different story.

That data is the key to your company’s success, and it is irreplaceable. What good is a shiny new replacement computer if you’re not able to quickly resume operations after a disaster? So you need to ask yourself: is your data properly protected—not just from natural disasters, but from such events as power outages, human error, the destructive actions of a disgruntled employee, or the cyberattack of a hacker living in another country?

You don’t even need to answer that question. That’s our job! At 911 IT, we can perform a thorough audit of your current network, hardware and software, and data management practices, and then advise you on where it may all fall short. From there we can tell you the best way to secure your data as well as back it up so it’s ready for speedy recovery should the need arise.

Data Backup: The Key to Successful Data Recovery

Nowadays, everyone talks about “connectivity,” and it’s hard to imagine an organization being able to function without all its devices talking to one another. But what about the flip side of connectivity—namely, data security? With the efficiency that connectivity confers comes the risk of electronic data loss when something goes terribly wrong. If that data is destroyed, stolen, or compromised in any way, you’ll thank your lucky stars you had a backup-and-recovery plan in place—or what we prefer to call business continuity.

Such a plan should never be a one-size-fits-all proposition. In its essential features, the purpose of a business continuity plan should be to maintain an organization’s basic operations in the face of disaster. The nature of that disaster can range from the malfunctioning of a single computer, to a company-wide ransomware attack, to the obliteration of an office by a tornado. In the immediate aftermath of such a disaster, the primary aim of a business continuity plan is to prevent or at least minimize the interruption of critical business functions.

After business continuity the organization can focus on disaster recovery, with the goal of restoring IT business functions to pre-disaster status.

Business Continuity Deliverables

With 911 IT Business Continuity Services, you’ll always have an experienced professional to call for help before your data is at risk and to help recover your data when events occur that are beyond your control.

With our client’s guidance, we identify which IT functions and data are most critical for the business. We gather essential technical information about your systems, analyze vulnerabilities, and brainstorm ways to harden backup protocols and improve system resiliency.

Our final deliverable is a comprehensive business continuity plan that includes step-by-step incident protocols and clear guidelines for what your organization should do to respond to various types of disasters and maintain operations. These guidelines cover all three major elements of good business continuity planning, namely: resilience, recovery, and contingency planning.

Moving forward, contingency tests and exercises are used to evaluate the effectiveness of the business continuity and disaster recovery plans put in place, and then we make adjustments as needed.

Your focus should be on running your business, not worrying about what to do in the event a disaster puts your company’s data at risk of loss. Our IT Disaster Recovery Services are designed not only to back up your data but to provide you with peace of mind.

Business Continuity FAQs

  • QWhat is the main benefit of a disaster recovery plan?

    A comprehensive disaster recovery plan ensures that an organization can avoid costly downtime while allowing for an orderly response to a disaster, with key team members in the organization communicating well and knowing the specific roles they will have to play.

  • QWhy do I need a backup-and-recovery strategy?

    Consider this: following a major disaster, about half of all small businesses never reopen. And most fail within a year unless they can resume full operations inside of a week. Since three-quarters of all small businesses do not have a formal business continuity plan in place, you quickly realize they are gambling with their livelihood.

  • QWhy can’t we create our own business continuity plan?

    You could, of course. Assuming you have the in-house expertise and experience in this information technology specialty to pull it off, you could potentially save yourselves a fair amount of money. But given the complexity of technology involved and the seriousness of the potential IT risks, you might just be better off handing this task to the experts.

Great dedicated IT team!

We started using 911 IT when we tired of waiting for our issues to get resolved. Having a dedicated IT team, not a tech person that does it "on the side" has saved me time and money. Their experienced team helps me price check and make decisions when it comes to equipment and software. Since outsourcing our IT to 911, the 911 team has setup our new location and everything was running great before we opened our doors. You will not regret it, Call 911 IT!

They Provide Peace of Mind!!

We love that 911 IT provides IT, phone, and hosting services. I didn't realize how interconnected those services were and what a pain it was to try and work with three different providers before we started working with 911 IT. Only working with one company that knows all about our company and the way we are setup has been a great asset to our company. With all that 911 IT provides, one of the biggest things they provide is peace of mind. That is worth A LOT to a business owner.
