Data Backup and Recovery

March 31 is World Backup Day

Backup your data. Plan your recovery. Protect your business.

The increasing number of cyberattacks worldwide poses a significant risk to the security of your digital information. By maintaining backups and testing them regularly, you can avoid being a victim to attacks and minimise the impact of such attacks on your personal or business data. Furthermore, retaining backups can be important to validate the integrity of data when there is a suspicion of unauthorised tampering or modification.

Reasons why data backups are crucial for your business

  • Preventive measures don’t always work
  • Cyberattacks are constantly evolving
  • Natural disasters can halt business in an instant
  • Lost data hurts your brand’s reputation
  • Cloud computing demands additional backups
  • Insider threats are often unseen

Disaster Recovery Planning

andersenIT provide consultancy based planning to understand your business needs and help define achievable recovery times. We will help you plan for your resilient systems and data storage for easier business recovery.

In planning preventative measures, it is always important that you follow best practices. You must always consider your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO). This will help you estimate how long it would take for your business to recover from a disaster or technical failure and ultimately help shape the measures that you put in place. 

Disaster Recovery Planning Considerations

  • Set an acceptable Recovery Point objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is for each set of applications
  • Consider the levels of disaster and how each level will play out
  • Consider a network disaster recovery plan
  • In your DR Plan, clearly identify the key roles, responsibilities and parties involved during a disaster recovery
  • Consider a cloud disaster recovery test ranging from a file backup in the cloud to a complete offline spin up of your VM servers

We provide backup solutions for your on-premise servers covering all functionality such as Active Directory, Exchange, SQL, and file data. Backups are stored in the Azure cloud platform and data is encrypted both in transit and at rest, ensuring it’s secure and only accessible to you at all times – even when it’s no longer on your premises.

In the event of a disaster, individual files or services can be restored quickly back to site. In the event of data loss caused by fire, flood or theft, our disaster recovery solutions can spin your server back up in the cloud in minutes, ensuring continual access to your data and minimal downtime for your business.

Even if your server is located in the cloud, it still needs to be backed up. Just like any other server it can experience power outages, data corruption, system failures,  or accidental deletion. We can back up your cloud servers regularly using integrated systems. Backup storage cost is low, and data restoration is extremely fast. 

Back up OneDrive, SharePoint, Exchange, Teams, OneNote, Class and Staff Notebooks data today. Restore malware-free Microsoft 365 data in the event of deletion.

It is a common misconception that your data in Microsoft 365 is backup up by Microsoft. Microsoft explicitly state that their responsibility ends with the provision of service and does not cover your data. Because of this, it’s essential that you take responsibility for backing up your business data. We provide cloud-to-cloud backup solutions which run three times a day to backup all your Microsoft Office 365 emails, OneDrive data, SharePoint sites and 365 groups. If anything is accidentally lost or corrupted we can restore it in minutes.

Backup your Desktops, Laptops, and NAS devices. Our endpoint backup technology allows administrators to secure data across all locations and devices, regardless of bandwidth capacity or device type.  

Protecting remote workforces and their laptop data is vital for business continuity. A dedicated SaaS-delivered backup solution provides a safety net in the face of data loss or corruption.
