Why Adopt a Comprehensive Backup and BCDR Strategy

Why Adopt a Comprehensive Backup and BCDR Strategy

Being a business owner is challenging. You have to deal with multiple problems at once and effectively solve each of those. It would be best if you also had the foresight to arm your business with the right tools and solutions to deal with any issues that might arise later.

One such issue that you must always focus on is data loss/data corruption and business disruption. 

If you’re wondering why this should be a priority, take a look at these statistics:

  • For SMBs, per-hour downtime costs could be as high as $50,000.
  • One-third of customers will end their association with a business following a severe disruption or data loss incident.
  • Failure to protect data can draw penalties of up to 4% or more of company turnover.

Always remember that data loss/data corruption and business disruption could happen due to various reasons such as:

  • Natural disaster
  • Hardware failure
  • Human error
  • Software corruption
  • Computer viruses

Therefore, as a responsible business owner, you must prepare your business to deal with unexpected interruptions that cause downtime and productivity dips. The best way to do this is by adopting a comprehensive backup and BCDR strategy. 

What Is a Comprehensive Backup and BCDR Strategy?

A comprehensive backup and BCDR strategy emphasize the need for various technologies working together to deliver uptime. It even highlights technologies associated with cybersecurity. 

Protects All Systems, Devices, and Workloads

Managing all systems, devices, and workloads efficiently, securely, and consistently can be quite a challenge. Mistakes, errors, mishaps, and outright failures across backup and recovery systems could happen simultaneously and could even lead to severe downtime or other costly business consequences. That’s why it is essential to have a reliable and secure solution to back up and protect business data and information and business systems, devices, and workloads.

Ensures the Integrity, Availability, and Accessibility of Data

The complexity of IT, network, and data environments that include multiple sites—cloud, on-premise, and remote—makes monitoring and protection difficult. It negatively affects the integrity, availability, and accessibility of information and all IT network assets. Hence, deploying tools or systems that cover all IT and network infrastructure (remote, cloud, and on-site) simultaneously, with the same level of protection and security, is vital.

Enables Business Resilience and Continuity

A comprehensive and realistically achievable backup and BCDR strategy prioritizes, facilitates, and ensures the continuity of business operations. It represents a business’ resiliency against downtime or data loss incidents. 

Prioritizes Critical Protection and Security Requirements Against Internal and External Risks

No backup or BCDR solution can be effective if your business does not proactively identify and rectify internal and external risks. It would be best if you had tools that focus on internal and external threats through constant monitoring, alerting, and tactical defense to empower your backup and BCDR strategy.

Optimizes and Reduces Storage Needs and Costs Through Deduplication

Experts estimate that humans produce 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day.4 From a business perspective, enormous amounts of data pose serious storage and budgetary challenges. What makes things worse is the existence of multiple, unnecessary copies of the duplicate files. Therefore, adopting deduplication can identify data repetition and ensure that no identifiable data is stored unnecessarily.

Manages Visibility, Unauthorized Access, and Fulfills Data Retention Requirements

Your business data must never be visible to every employee in the same way. There must be policies and tools to ensure that employees access only data essential to complete their tasks. Also, unauthorized access must be identified and blocked immediately. This isn’t just essential for the success of backups and BCDR but also necessary to maintain compliance with all regulatory mandates related to data protection and retention.

Comprehensive Backup and BCDR For Your Business

Adopting a comprehensive backup and BCDR strategy is not an option but necessary because the business world is wrought with fierce competition. A single, severe data loss incident or disruption could open the gates for your competitors to eat into your profits and customer base. 

You must do everything in your capacity to bring all the right tools and strategies together so that your business can operate seamlessly, even in the face of chaos. Are you ready to approach the concept of comprehensive backup and BCDR practically?
