When Do You Need Data Recovery Services?
If you’re like most businesses, you store a significant amount of critical business data on your network. During a natural disaster, power outage, or cyber attack, you might lose access to some or all of your data. Make sure a data loss doesn’t do serious damage to your business by partnering with Americom for disaster recovery services.
Most businesses store data on their networks. Some use hard drives and physical servers, and others store data on cloud-based software systems. Virtual data storage is a secure, environmentally friendly way to keep records, but even cloud services can suffer from software issues. Many scenarios can lead to data loss, including:
Natural disasters: Hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, and other natural disasters can cause property damage to hard drives and data centers. During power outages, unsaved data can disappear, and employees can lose access to both physically and virtually stored data.
Cyber attacks: During a network attack, cyber criminals can request a ransom to return lost data or steal and leak personal information. Malware can corrupt your files and make them inaccessible, and you can lose access to stored data for a few hours or even days while IT professionals control the attack.
Employee mistakes: Sometimes, human error is inevitable. Whether an employee opens a dangerous link, forgets to back up their files, or spills coffee all over their keyboard, staff mistakes can lead to short- and long-term data loss.
Hardware or software failure: One of the most common causes of data loss is hardware failure. If your business stores data on physical hardware, the components in that hardware can erode or malfunction, causing data loss. Additionally, software crashes, glitches, and bugs can erase unsaved information and delete saved files.
Theft: Many employees nowadays work from home or transport their laptops to and from work. Some employees use their laptops in airports, planes, restaurants, and hotels, which are common targets for thieves. If your employees store data on their computers, your business is vulnerable to data loss if employee equipment is stolen.
To prevent a disaster from wreaking havoc on your business, Americom can help you incorporate backup solutions into your everyday business practices. We also offer disaster recovery solutions if you lose access to data during or after a disaster.
