Disaster-Proofing Your Data with Datto and Navitend

Disaster-Proofing Your Data with Datto and Navitend

In today's world, data does not just mean everything to your business: your data is your business.  If your data is unavailable for even one second, your business will slow down to a crawl or perhaps face an existential crisis.  Losing your data can bring dire consequences.  For example, you will not only lose revenue and anger customers, but also run the risk of bankruptcy¹. 

According to a article, sixty-eight percent of all businesses do not have any plans in place for a potential worst-case scenario².  This can prove fatal, whether they lose all or only some of their data.  Sadly, the vast majority of companies without data backup and recovery strategies are forced to close their doors forever within a year after disaster strikes². 

The best practice in disaster-proofing your business data requires considering every aspect of your business’s tech systems, from applications and hardware to the data itself².  Although this may sound rather daunting, there is one helpful tool that lets you protect your data from all disasters, 24/7/365.  Meet the backup data and recovery system, or BDR. 

As outlined in this article, backup data and recovery systems have several key advantages, including ease of management and drastically reduced downtime¹.  These handy appliances also protect users by providing local file protection, along with protection against ransomware, server hardware failures, and much more. 

A major benefit of BDR systems is that they generally run in the background, restoring your critical business data with few - if any - disruptions¹.  Consider the Datto SIRIS line of BDRs.  The SIRIS provides a variety of data restore options, from granular restores targeting specific files “to full system restores which include instant virtualization” to keep your customers online³.  With features such as verified backups and restore options for any scenario, the SIRIS lets users retrieve their data quickly, cutting downtime and enhancing productivity³.  This reduced downtime also means more time to focus on serving your customers.  

BDR systems also defend users against harmful ransomware and malware attacks.  Datto SIRIS automatically scans for ransomware with every single backup³.  This automatic detection helps you recover data quickly and easily so you can keep your business running smoothly and safely³. 

While protection from ransomware is important, what happens if you accidentally delete your company's data, or if a disgruntled employee deletes it maliciously?  Look no further.  Datto offers its customers access to exclusive Cloud Deletion Defense, helping them to protect their backups no matter what happens to them⁴.  By rapidly restoring your backups in any given scenario, Datto’s state-of-the-art BDR technologies give you much-needed peace of mind³. 

Another advantage of BDR systems is that they help users save money.  Although these systems can cost anywhere from $1,000 to several thousand dollars to install, plus at least $125 per month for securely and remotely storing your data, they are well worth the investment.  Returning to the Datto SIRIS example, each of its components is designed “to seamlessly work together, from the backup agent, to the SIRIS software platform” and the private Datto Cloud, where users can access their data indefinitely with proprietary Infinite Cloud Retention technology³.  This not only saves you money, but also time and headaches³. 

BDR systems are reliable and dependable.  Since Datto automatically verifies that backups will boot with all data intact and without ransomware, users can restore their business data with confidence³.  With BDR solutions like the Datto SIRIS in place, you will not have to worry about whether or not your data will boot or be recovered.  

Datto’s SIRIS BDR system is one reliable way to ensure that your data is secure. We have the data backup and recovery solutions you need to keep your business data safe and sound whenever disaster strikes.
