Recovery

If you couldn’t access your IT network for a day, what would the cost to your business be? If all your client data disappeared, how would you get it back? How long would that take? Would your customers wait for you?

Flooded server rooms, misplaced back-up tapes, hardware failure, power surges, power outages, corrupted data, accidental deletion, hacking, theft & virus infection are all very real risks to all of us. If you don’t have appropriate security solutions in place, then, quite frankly, you’re flirting with danger. And if you don’t have an appropriate DR plan in place when the worst happens, then you’re in real trouble.

From simple online back-up to managed firewalls, from email/web filtering to virtualised failover servers, help4IT will work with you to define the most appropriate security and DR solutions for your business, taking into account any relevant statutory or regulatory obligations to ensure that our recommendations are proportionate and correctly aligned to your commercial and operational requirements.
