Anything can negatively affect your business at any time, so having a business continuity plan with an effective disaster recovery component is vital. Any company with a substantial amount of data and information whether big or small should plan for the event of data loss, corruption, hacking, server or hardware failure, power outage or any other problem that could result in losing vital company and client information. Disasters may also pose a severe threat to security, so having a good recovery and backup strategy ensures that no one is compromised from your staff to your customers or clients.

At ATEL Communication, we are the team you need to create, design, implement and manage a system that fits your business, and we offer continuous support. There are many strategies involved in a recovery system; these steps allow for a company to go back to normal as soon as possible to reduce loss in productivity, data, revenue, and performance. These strategies include:

  • Data Backup – critically essential in keeping your business running in the event of potential data loss. Cloud backup (or online backup) services keep the ever-changing data on your servers stored at an off-site server and continuously stays up to date at all times. If there is ever an outage, your latest data is secured and can restore itself fast and easy.
  • Proper Recovery Procedures – Ensuring that equipment and recovery of applications are taken care of, we implement a recovery period of up to 24 hours to allow for the systems and networks to be worked on and fixed so that business can return to normal. This critical period is where a lot of time and effort is spent on getting the business back to functionality.
  • Network and Application Assessment – After everything is back up, evaluating the systems for efficiency and performance helps to make sure that there are no holes or unknown routes where a threat or further damage can occur. At this stage, security procedures are also reassessed.
  • Maintenance and continuous support– After systems are back up and running; a follow-up will be done to ensure that operations are continuing to run smoothly and error-free. We also offer on-going system maintenance, so your systems are never left unattended.
