Does your business have a backup and disaster recovery plan?

All Hardware has an Expiration Date: Why a BDR Plan is Critical for Your Business

In the world of technology, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement of the latest gadget or piece of hardware. But the truth is, all hardware has an expiration date. It may seem like it’s working just fine one day, but the next, it could fail, leaving you and your business in a world of trouble.

That’s why it’s crucial to have a backup and disaster recovery plan (BDR) in place. In fact, according to the National Archives and Records Administration, 93% of companies experiencing a data loss event with more than 10 days of downtime will end up filing for bankruptcy. That’s a staggering statistic that can be easily avoided with a comprehensive BDR plan.

It’s not just hardware failure that can affect your business, though. Cyber attacks and natural disasters are more common than ever, and without a plan in place, you could be setting yourself up for failure. Here’s a look at how a backup and disaster recovery plan can help protect your business.

Protects Your Profits

Your profits are the lifeblood of your business. When disaster strikes, you’re left dealing with downtime, which can be devastating to your bottom line. The faster you can recover from this downtime, the faster you can get back to satisfying your customers and making money. A comprehensive BDR plan allows you to protect your data, recover it when the worst happens, and get back to conducting business.

Improves Security Practices

With a backup and recovery plan, you’ll automatically store valuable, sensitive data away from your business site, usually in a datacenter. Datacenters offer incredibly advanced encryption, multiple safeguards, redundancies, and multiple restore points – all wrapped in a robust digital framework. Adopting a BDR plan means adopting all these security practices and more. You can sleep easy knowing your data cannot be easily compromised by intruders or accidents.

Improves Employee Productivity

Believe it or not, implementing a comprehensive BDR plan can actually result in better productivity. By automating data protection and backups, you’re freeing up your employees’ time, giving them the freedom to focus on other areas of the business. This is especially useful when employees are on vacation, sick leave, or transitioning out of the company. With a BDR plan in place, data protection and backups are handled automatically, ensuring that your business continues to operate smoothly.

Stops Customers from Leaving

Modern clients are less forgiving of failure and downtime than ever before. An IT-related crisis can throw a curveball into your operations, causing your best customers to leave for someone more reliable, safer to work with, and consistent. BDR plans reduce your downtime to an absolute minimum, allowing you to carry on operations and retain all your customers. With a BDR plan in place, you can have peace of mind that when the worst happens, you’ll be able to confidently retain your customers and carry on like nothing ever happened.
